Does the famous clip from Disney’s Snow White bring back memories for you? Have you listened to it lately? And if so, does something sound a little “different”? Could we be witnessing right in front of our very eyes and ears what my guest Cynthia Sue Larson calls an alternate history? There are many examples, both subtle and sensational that we live in a quantum universe – not just in the world of the tiny or micro but on a massive scale – and it affects each and every one of us, whether we are fully conscious of it or not.
In this episode of Higher Journeys Radio, we’ll explore how quantum reality has made its way into our everyday lives and how the old classical way of looking at life may be on its way to becoming completely obsolete.
Fine points from this episode include:
- A summary of quantum reality and the macro experience.
- Quantum computing and how NASA and Google are involved.
- What role quantum logic plays in how we live our lives right now.
- 1986 breakthrough of observation of quantum reality.
- Why not holding onto any particular belief system makes quantum jumping more likely.
- How quantum jumps figure into spontaneous remission from disease, instantaneous rescue from an emergency event.
- How the acknowledgement that “we are consciousness” can trigger a whole different experience of reality.
- The role of language and plays into the quantum process.
- The anomaly of time and how we can influence or “change” the past.
- What are alternate histories?
- Cynthia’s alternate history pop quiz (listen to the questions she poses and answer them to the best of your recollection, then listen to what she has to say…ARE we living in an alternate history?
- The “Alive Again” phenomenon.
- The interesting paradoxes of quantum physics.
- Does God really know everything?
- Quantum reality and the “fine tuned universe.”
- The Paris events and the “future” within the context of a quantum reality.
- The quantum zeno effect.

Last year we bought Snow White on bluray when Maleficent came out and the kids loved it. I remember a “hmm?” moment at the “Mirror, mirror, on the wall” scene, and did not have sufficient reason to question it, because the Occam’s Razor response first is, “Hmm, I was mitaken”, memory being imperfect as it is. Then I saw your comment above and raced over to youtube again, and, wow…
I am not 100% certain of all such cases. Like, with Mr. Rogers. I spent a whole week humming and singing his opening song to measure my memory. At first, I was certain it was “I’ve always wanted to live in A neighborhood with you”, and “THIS neighborhood” sounded funny. After singing it to myself for many days, both ways, THIS still sounds off… but I’m not certain after 40 years.
The key to these incidents, in my opinion, is to recover as many discrepancies as possible, document them, because human memory is too fragile and easily manipulated to be trusted on just one or two instances. But a half dozen is compelling. Snow White is compelling! How can we be sure it isn’t just confusion over the original text and the Disney version? I could swear it was “Mirror, Mirror” as a child. I mean, that’s an epic classic quote, right? MAGIC sounds so completely wrong! But, that one instance alone isn’t proof enough. I’m excited that there are so many this time. Do you remember the last few big ones? Not this many changes in pop culture!

Fun interview. I’m in these 6 memory categories:
—Thanksgiving is/used to be the 4th Thursday as recently as late 1990’s.
—“the neighborhood” for Mr. Rogers’ song
—Mandela lived and was President of South Africa for many years before his death. I also remember some problems with his widow/wife, but not the ones mentioned.
—Berenstein Bears, both my son (now 35) and I remember that specifically (We’re Jewish) and we didn’t like that most people mispronounced their name (with that spelling, should be been “I” as long, not the “E”). NEVER saw or heard “STAIN” at the end until Cynthia started talking about it.
—“Mirror, Mirror” is definitely how that Snow White thing went. No other way.
—“Luke, I am your father,” is also definite. I remember the “oo” sound in James Earl Jones’ resonant voice as he intoned that fateful sentence!
Best to you all!

Hi Sally. Your comments prove that we must be vigilant about our memories of these things. Darth Vader always said, “No, I am your father.” This quote has not changed, even if all of the others brought up recently have. And I’m not convinced of all of them. It’s helpful to defer these opinions to the hardcore fans of any particular reference rather than rely on a casual recollection. The Star Wars quote is wrong; it was never “Luke…”. But, I suppose to be fair, I should admit that that’s just my opinion. Even though I’ve seen the movies 100 times (that’s probably a low estimate).

Thanks for all the comments on our interview! Please keep in mind that the point in this discussion is definitely not to prove which version of reality is “factual” or “correct,” but rather to point out that at this time when new fields of science are springing up that include: quantum cosmology, quantum biology, and quantum cognition, we’re at an extraordinary point in human history when our very models of reality are changing more than at any previous point in our past.
Noticing alternate histories such as these examples merely provides a starting point for paying more attention the next time you and a trusted friend or colleague completely disagrees with you about your memories. The field of quantum logic now suggests that facts necessarily remain fixed or static, but instead can sometimes be very quite different.
The phenomenon of reality shifts is something I’ve been researching and writing about since 1999, and increasing numbers of people around the world are beginning to experience and talk about alternate histories including the alive again phenomenon (aka “Mandela effect”) as well as the remarkable increase in efficacy of the placebo effect.
I go into a great deal more detail about all this in my book, Quantum Jumps. http://www.QuantumJumps.com
