CERNs logo.


The European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, is a European research organization that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world. Established in 1954, the organization is based in a northwest suburb of Geneva on the Franco–Swiss border, and has 22 member states. Israel is the only non-European country granted full membership. CERN is an official United Nations Observer. [1]

Mandela Effect

While there has been no scientific evidence supporting the idea, many people affected by the Mandela Effect believe that CERN is the cause of or is somehow related to the phenomenons occurrence. [2] It has been suggested that simply because of how little is known about CERN by the general public, wild theories regarding it's true purpose are generated. [3]


There have been multiple theories attempting to explain CERNs role in the Mandela Effect, although none have been conclusively proven. A list of theories surrounding CERN was posted to the subreddit by user /u/EpicJourneyMan.

-the LHC destroyed our Universe and we are living in an alternate one

-it opens up gateways to other dimensions

-the mini-black holes (singularities) it creates are destroying little pieces of our universe and the void left behind is being filled by aspects of the next closest reality/dimension

-Dark Matter is being introduced and causing ripples in the physical universe with unpredictable results

-it's actually a portal to another dimension [4]
