When it comes to brains Max Loughan seemingly has plenty. The 14 year old could possibly lay claim to being the smartest kid in the world, at least he sounds like he is when explaining the complexities behind the Mandela Effect in this video above. For those unfamiliar the Mandela Effect, in very layman's terms, is a kind of collective false memory, a memory shared by many, of events that didn't actually occur.
The woman who coined the term, Fiona Broome, cited the example of Nelson Mandela's death.
She says that many people believed Mandela died in the 1980s, rather than the more recent 2013. Not sure who those people are, as he was a very public figure since the 80s, but still. Broome, an "author and paranormal researcher" has posited the idea that these false memories are created by alternate realities.
And in the video Max Loughan picks up this idea, theorizing that CERN actually destroyed our universe and that we now exist in another, parallel, universe. And those false memories, the so-called Mandela Effect, are a result of us remembering our original universe that was destroyed by the Large Hadron Collider.
It all sounds like something from a Rick and Morty episode rather than anything that actually might have happened. But still, Max Loughan explains it all quite convincingly, entertainingly, and eloquently in the video. He's got the lingo, that's for sure.
Max Loughan, AKA The Smartest Kid in the World
And he's also got some history with understanding, or seemingly understanding scientific principles, as last year he was on local news channel KTVN Channel 2 in Reno and Tahoe. Dressed in his lab coat, and inspired by his scientific heroes, Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein, apparently he had made what he called an Energy Harvesting Gathering (EHG) device (see video below) that cost him as little as $15 which he used to light up some LEDs.
From KTVN Channel 2:
He wants to make the world a better place, and to do that, Max believes you need one single thing: "If you got energy, you have power, you have everything." So to solve this problem, a few months ago, Max took the matter into his own hands. He created an electro magnetic harvester out of a coffee can, some wire, two coils, and a spoon. 'This cost me 14 bucks,' Max said. The harvester conducts radio waves, thermal, and static energy, and turns it into electricity. This wire takes energy from the air. And the inside the coffee can, "We turn it from AC to DC."
But, people have their doubts about Max Loughan's device and its abilities. It's thought that he actually tuned it to a nearby radio frequency, and used the electromagnetic radiation from those radio waves as the power source—similar to how a crystal radio is powered. As such it won't generate that much energy.
Still, impressive that he managed to a) create an energy harvesting device from stuff found around his home and b) fool a local media outlet. And he certainly can talk the talk. Plus, he's also been taking online college level MIT courses, which is also very impressive. Keep at it Max Loughan, who knows what you'll eventually achieve.
