How Good Can it Get?

The Power of Acceptance

“Because one believes in oneself,
one doesn't try to convince others.
Because one is content with oneself,
one doesn't need others' approval.
Because one accepts oneself,
the whole world accepts him or her.”
- Lao Tzu

This quote by Lao Tzu was the most appreciated quotation that I posted on social media this past month. It occurs to me that it may have struck a chord with people thanks to the peaceful quality of acceptance that it advocates. What I find most beneficial about the attitude acceptance is the natural state of authenticity and harmony it can bring. When we feel accepted in our homes, in our families, in our neighborhoods, and everywhere we go, we gain a sense of gentle confidence that can grace every event and interaction with gentle warmth and kindness.

I learned from an early age in life to draw from inner reserves of feeling accepted when facing situations where I did not feel like I fit in. I'd travel with my family every summer for weeks and months at a time to places where there were no other people who looked like me. I took physics and advanced mathematics classes in high school and college where I was usually the only female student in the room. In these situations and many more, I drew from a rich sense of feeling accepted in my family and in my home, in order to not feel overwhelmed.

One of the greatest insights I'm finding as I read new reports from quantum physics, and compare notes between cutting-edge theories and what some of us are observing with the Mandela Effect is that our individual observations can be completely unique to each of us. As we enter this brave new Quantum Age, we are seeing things like a physics experiment that challenges objective reality. The very nature of reality appears to be inviting us to contemplate what our worldview will look like if we are willing to relinquish our long-standing assumption that there can be one correct objective reality that we must all agree with. These recent experimental studies seem to be asking us, “What if there is no such thing as one 'true' objective reality?”

West Coast Mandela Effect conference speakers
For one thing, we will stand to benefit from being a great deal more kind and accepting of ourselves and others, if this is the case. We have an opportunity for emotional and spiritual growth, and the invitation appears to benefit everyone involved, in win-win-win fashion. Most likely it will take a while before the dominant paradigm comes around to recognize the quantum writing on the wall, indicating that the entire universe at every level is operating according to quantum rules—as I describe in my most recent blog post article, Quantum Supremacy, Quantum Time, and Quantum Rules. Those of us who are already noticing alternate histories have an opportunity now to lead the way in terms of leading by example, demonstrating qualities such as acceptance and kindness—even and especially when we remember things differently.

I'm feeling especially heartened by the growth of the Mandela Effect community, who are coming together this next month to discuss the deeper meaning and implications of reality shifts and the Mandela Effect at the first West Coast Mandela Effect conference, being held in Ketchum, Idaho from November 8th through the 10th. Speakers and panelists at this event include: NECS CEO Christopher Anatra; Jerry Hicks of DarkWolf's Den; author Shane C. Robinson of Unbiased and On The Fence; author Lauren Connell Pavelka; and artist Kimberly-Lynn Hanson. This event is priced economically at just $15 this month, and $20 next month and at the door, and I'd love to see you there!

Love always,

Quantum Supremacy, Quantum Time, and Quantum Rules
Some of the world's leading experts in the field of quantum computing, such as Scott Aaronson, sound quite enthusiastic regarding the imminent arrival of quantum supremacy.  "Quantum supremacy," is meant in this context to suggest that quantum computing is expected at some point to be able to out-perform classical computing by a significant margin under verifiable (reproducible) conditions.  There has been a great deal of buzz and excitement over an anticipated announcement by Google sometime soon that they have achieved such quantum supremacy. Having said all that, when I think of the phrase 'quantum supremacy,' the first thing that comes to my mind is the title of a wonderful paper published in 2015 in Contemporary Physics by physicists David Jennings and Matthew Leifer, No Return to Classical Reality.  Jennings and Leifer audaciously start their paper with the fighting words, "At a fundamental level, the classical picture of the world is dead, and has been dead now for almost a century." This seemingly brash statement is fully backed by demonstrating that there exist fundamental phenomena of quantum theory that cannot be understood in classical terms.  And as the authors state, "We now have a range of precise statements showing that whatever the ultimate laws of Nature are, they cannot be classical."  I've touched on this topic before, and written about it in my 2015 paper, Primacy of Quantum Logic in the Natural World.  Support can be found for the primacy of quantum logic in the natural world in the cognitive sciences, where recent research studies recognize quantum logic in studies of: the subconscious, decisions involving unknown interconnected variables, memory, and question sequencing. From my perspective as a reality shifts and Mandela Effect researcher since 1998 (more than 20 years)--I'm absolutely thrilled by the prospect of considering classical reality to be a special case and subset of the greater and all encompassing quantum reality.  And I'm thrilled that recently, we're seeing ever-increasing evidence from scientific researchers that Jennings and Leifer's bold assertion is quite likely true.  We are unquestionably now in the Quantum Age, and reaching a point where many of us can see that there indeed is no return to classical reality.

(3) Your Reality Shift Stories

Bob Newhart
Bob Newhart is Alive Again
Sandy Penny

In 2014, shortly after “Professor Proton” died on the TV show, “The Big Bang Theory,” I saw Jim Parsons (Sheldon) interviewed about Bob Newhart on TV. The cast was quite upset about Bob Newhart's death. I don't remember what was going on in my life at the time; nothing exceptional. So many people remember Bob Newhart's dying and what a big deal it was when the character that he played, Dr. Proton, died on The Big Bang Theory, and then Bob Newhart actually died. Now he's alive. Wow. Ths is me being shocked to find this one out.

Note from Cynthia: Wow--I know what you mean about having such a memorable marker in time, such as Dr. Proton dying on The Big Bang Theory, and then Bob Newhart actually dying in real life.  I have no idea how I missed out on both Bob Newhart having been on the show--and even winning an Emmy for it--but also him having died, too.  I'm intrigued how reality shifts and Mandela Effects can often affect people very uniquely from one another--so for me the truly bizarre thing is that these marvelous episodes featuring Bob Newhart now exist, which I've not heard about or seen before!  And for you, Bob Newhart is alive again, thank goodness!


I Saw Raiders of the Lost Ark before it was released
Kansas City, Missouri, USA

I started college in 1979, so the end of my freshman year was 1980; I spent that summer living with my cousin in Kansas City. This was the only year that I did this. During that summer of 1980, we went to see the movie, “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” four times. And yet, when I looked it up recently, every place I look at says that the movie came out in 1981. But for me, the summer of 1980 was particularly memorable, and Raiders is a part of those memories! I only discovered this weirdness this year and, unfortunately my cousin, aunt and uncle are all dead, so no corroboration is available.

Note from Cynthia: I love the way you have such clearly definitive time markers like this, so it’s really obvious that some kind of reality shift has definitely occurred. Outstanding! Have you talked with your cousin about what summer they remember having seen Raiders of the Lost Ark four times with you? Not that it matters–sometimes, other people remember completely different things. And I find that equally fascinating, that even when you think you’ve got someone to share a reality shift or Mandela Effect with, that may or may not be the case.


(4) Mail Bag, Questions, and Answers

Hi Cynthia,
I got cued to this movie the other day, and while I was listening to it, I was thinking "I've got to share this with Cynthia Sue Larson". The person who shared this with me referred to it as an 'entertaining movie' (about 30 min). So, here it is, 
— Kassy

Dear Kassy,
Thanks so much for sharing this with me--I love it!  We're clearly at a defining point in human history in which we are faced with the reality of needing to bring quantum mechanics into all areas of science--and the folks who put this video together are working at the very heart of things, doing their best to come up with a theory of quantum gravity.  Awesome, and thought-provoking!
With love and thanks,


Hi Cynthia,
     I hate to bother you, but since you are an expert in the field, I was hoping maybe you could shed some light on this for me. I was at the Body, Mind, Spirit expo in Denver yesterday and ad my aura photographed by Inner Light Aura Photos. I have never had an aura that looked like this before, but it is all white. No other colors. The lady that was interpreting it for me didn't want to say what was coming to her, but I got it out of her that she sees me dying. Well, as you can imagine, that freaked me out a bit. I did some research myself and found that most people say that it is a sign of higher dimensions and high spiritual awareness, transcendental and what not. That seems to be the general consensus. I do NOT want to die. I am only in my fifties and plan on living for many many more years. I spoke with a Shaman about this and she told me that she does not believe that that is a sign of death, but a sign of enlightenment and that she feels that I am a galactic spirit.Maybe even from another galaxy than our Milky Way. More things to look into, but I have attached a picture of the photo that they printed for me so that you can see for yourself the all white aura. So, I was hoping that maybe you could shed some more light on this for me. I am sorry I do not have any money that I can give you and I hope you have the time and the inclination to help me out here. I would be very grateful to you if you would please. Thank you for your time.
— Luther

Aura Advantage
Dear Luther,
Thank you for writing to me with your question.  My short response is that the color white does not indicate impending death, but instead typically indicates, as the caption of your photo suggests, 'transcendent, higher consciousness.'  I share in my book Aura Advantage several pieces of information about white auras, such as:
    "Saints and enlightened masters are often said to radiate completely white light, with occasional highlights of gold or violet.  Over the past hundred years, there has been some discussion among modern-day mystics such as the Theosophists and Edgar Cayce about white auras being preferable to colored auras. The main reason given for this is that white light does not interfere with one’s perception of the world, whereas all other colors present a biased impression of reality. The expression, “seeing the world through rose-colored glasses” is an example of this, as a person who views the world through rose-colored glasses or a rose-colored aura will see everything in that rosy hue, whereas someone who has lots of darkness in their aura will tend to see the world as a dark and foreboding place. People who wish to aspire to seeing the world as it is will therefore aspire to a white aura."

With love and thanks,


Dear Cynthia,
This dude lays out his theory in not too many words. It sounds like it could be an explanation for the whole reality-shifting thing:
— Mark

Dear Mark,
Thanks so much for sharing this with me--I love it!  Yes, the author and experiencer of reality shifts indeed does share some experiences quite similar to the reality shifts that I and others have been writing about for decades.  PMH Atwater first reported reality shifts in her excellent book, "Future Memory," which includes seemingly impossible events having occurred, such as someone having taken a photograph of a place he'd been to--yet he hadn't been there yet.  The authors, Andreas and Sven Kolbow, also shares many of the same points of view and perspectives that I've shared in my website and books--such as the importance of levels of self, including the subconscious. So yes, I'd say these authors are looking at the same phenomena that we've been investigating for years at http://www.realityshifters.com
With love and thanks,
