It's widely believed that the former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, was released from prison in the early-90s and went on to become one of the world's most inspirational leaders.

However, when his death was officially announced,back in 2013, many were in a state of disbelief. As it turns out, there are countless people who vividly remember reports of the South African leader dying in prison back in the 1980s. Some even recall seeing a televised funeral decades before Mandela's actual death.

This seemingly widespread case of false memory has come to be known as "The Mandela Effect." One possible explanation for this phenomenon, as mentioned by Big Think, is that it's a "glitch in the Matrix."

In other words, we may be living in a simulated reality, and a simple computer glitch has caused a significant portion of the population to remember a major event incorrectly. Perhaps, whoever controls the program we reside in decided to change things up, and not everyone got the update.

Whatever the case, the Mandela Effect is a noteworthy phenomenon for those who support the simulation hypothesis.
