Mandela effect MERGED
#21
Here's the explanation I see from answering the questions on the quiz:


Quote:Over 500 people have responded here are some data about their answers? 90% remember it as Berestein Bears, 72% remember it as Sex in the City, 74% remember it as "Luke, I am your father," only 39% of people knew the right number of Nasa missions, 93% thought it was Mirror Mirror, 80% thought it was Interview with a Vampire, 88% thought it was "If you build it they will come," and 61% thought it was O+. Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Branch Davidians were included as controls and 95% of people got Buffy right and 76% got Branch Davidians right (the vast majority of people getting Davidians wrong admit to guessing the answer, so for those that were moderately and extremely confident it was closer to 95%) (there was no controversy surrounding those two questions). Now that you have seen data what do you think is the root cause of the Mandela Effect? (oddly enough only 13% of this survey thought Mandela died in prison)





and this was my score!  13/22


Quote:The Mandela Effect questions were worth 0, 1, or 2 points (the ones that asked you about reality rather than your confidence or how you knew).  The other questions weren't worth points.  The two control questions (Davidians and Vampire) have only 1 correct answer (as far as I know and can tell) and only that one is worth 2 points.  The Mandela Effect question answers are worth 2 points for the answer google provides, 1 point for the common Mandela Effect answer, and 0 points for the dummy option.
If you scored nearly perfect it's likely that you pay attention and that you aren't experiencing any of the Mandela Effect.  If you score in the middle you are likely experiencing a lot of the Mandela Effect.  If you score almost nothing you probably aren't paying enough attention to things going on around you like this to have a reliable score (You may be living in a bunker already).

Another bible verse that gets mentioned when discussing the Mandela effect is Matthew 9:17.

This example will show that remembering wineskin or bottle, the difference is clearly because of the interpretation. 
I will include images from the King James version and from the New International version. The words are different in the message, but the message remains the same.

King James uses the word bottle, but also provides a different interpretation (2) wineskin.

The new international version just uses the word wineskin.

I'm not much into the Bible...never even read it.........I just have a Buddist outlook, and try to do right with others.....

If I explore interpreting words and their meanings and give each word a value, along with an image
here's what I would discover.

Bottle in Jewish Gematria Equals: 277
Bottle in English Gematria Equals: 444


[Image: wineSkin.jpg]

Wineskin in Jewish Gematria Equals: 1103
Wineskin in English Gematria Equals: 624



What other differences can you see from using these two words in a message?

The wineskin metaphor is in several books of the new testament.
Matthew, Luke, and Mark are the three I can remember off hand.

Gematria is a Kabbalistic method of interpreting Hebrew by computing the numerical value of words, based on those of their constituent letters.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gematria

There is a kabbalah system that uses Sacred Geometry to correspond certain values with shapes.

These shapes are symbols, and the symbols or images are what give us ideas.
So words have hidden values and those values lead us into certain images and ideas.

Jews like to hide their identities... Stain seems more appropriate anyway!  Troll2
