THE MERMAID EFFECT

CONGRATULATIONS!
Today I am going to tell you: The Mermaid Effect.

First tell me, do you know what are mermaids?

Mermaids are a combination of fish and woman. They are believed to be extremely beautiful and charming. Although it is said that mermaids are found in deep sea waters, their existence is still very much in doubt.

Now that you know what mermaids are, it is important for you to realise that:
The Mermaid Effect has NOTHING to do with MERMAIDS.
It is an entirely different concept altogether!Very often in life, we need to take wise and crucial decisions. Sometimes the situation demands accurate logical reasoning and deductions. At such times, we observe The Mermaid Effect.
When these situations come up, our intellect gets clouded by the fog of cluttered pre-assumptions and prejudiced conclusions. Mostly we end up with a biased result because our start itself was compromised. This is the Mermaid Effect.

For example, there once was a girl, a normal average school girl. in her class was a boy, handsome happening and very popular. Most other women in the class yearned for him. She however never took notice of him and always kept her focus straight.
One day the teacher announced a project and put the two of them in the same team. All her friends pointed out how lucky she was to have the opportunity to enjoy his company. But she hardly ever found this special. Slowly she realised that she too had developed feelings for the guy. Days passed and her feelings grew. Finally she decided to confess it to him.
Right before she was about to knock his door, she had a Mermaid realisation. Was it really true love? Or was it just an infatuation inflicted by her friends’ remarks that had rooted too deep into her? How to find out? Where to begin with?

The solution as per The Mermaid Effect theory is simple.
Exercise absolute and sudden withdrawal from the thoughts and perceptions of the situation immediately.

Considering again the girl’s case, she must immediately seek isolation from her friends and the guy and try to completely clear her brain of these thoughts.
When you start to draw a masterpiece, the first thing to do is to clear the canvas!
That’s what she should do. Instead f continuously pinging our soul for an answer, we must give it space and time to think.
And then as clarity steps in our perception, new realisations dawn.
Who knows what the final decision would be?
Perhaps we may end up realising that the entire situation is pointless. Or maybe we get mentally prepared to accept every possible outcome of the situation.
What shall happen after the soul gets its space and time to think is very subjective and hard to put in a compendium.
But one thing is for sure, The Mermaid Effect will surely be dealt with by the end.

So now you know the wisdom and I hope that the last few minutes you spent reading it were worth it.

You may now stop here but if you dare to continue reading be prepared to experience something really strange.
Why is it then called the “MERMAID” effect?

This brings us to the second part of The Mermaid Effect. This Part is much like a rulebook.

Rule1: The mermaid effect should only be told to people who are special to you or to people who need a deep realisation of its’ wisdom immediately.
Fortunately though, this rule stands off now as its’ creators have decided to make it public.

Rule2: Whenever a person is being imparted the wisdom of The Mermaid Effect, he must first be asked, “Do you know what a MERMAID is?”.
Irrespective of what the answer be, the person must then be told in detail every information known to the speaker about detail.
Special stress must be put on the beauty of the mermaids.
After ensuring that the listener has a complete idea of what a mermaid is, he must be told straight away that “The Mermaid Effect has NOTHING to do with MERMAIDS!”.

But why?

COULD say to you that:
When a listener is informed of the mermaid effect a series on anticipating thoughts develop in him. Later when the talk shifts to the description of mermaids, listener tends to relate mermaids with The Mermaid Effect.
However, when they realise that The Mermaid Effect has nothing to do with the mermaids, they understand how they had been MERMAID EFFECTED on The Mermaid Effect itself!
YES A LIVE EXAMPLE!

As convincing as this may seem, this is NOT the reason of why we need to talk about mermaids before telling The Mermaid Effect.

A friend and I were on a long train journey once. And there in the middle berth we cooked this whole theory up and I as a person of special interest in strange and secret rituals added the rules.
The entire theory is hence, just a cook up of two stupid idle brains and there isn’t any logical reason as to why mermaids need to be mentioned before The Mermaid Effect.
It is just a random and stupid convention by me and my friend.

So now you have it, THE MERMAID EFFECT wisdom in yourself.
Maybe now you can answer that one obvious question,
Why is it called The “MERMAID” effect?
***END***
Dear reader,
If you can answer that correctly I certify you that you are AWESOME and have a complete understanding of how much The Mermaid Effect consumes us.
If unfortunately you haven’t yet found the answer to it, you must be very confused and pissed off at me.
Maybe going through it again might help.
In case you feel like killing me for this, I am really sorry.
Feel free to use the comment section to vent out your ideas and criticism.

      1. Oh….! I thought about it a lot and came up with a answer even though I wasn’t sure enough that it would be right! But some of the people already said what was in my mind.
        I really do wanna know!
        Can u plz tell?

      2. Well it has been named the mermaid effect to have us readers believe it involves mermaids when it doesn’t.
        He explains the theory and ask the question. But people will still explain why referencing to mermaids for the name and his intro that explains what a mermaid is. So basically he mermaid effected us readers. Am I correct? 😌

      3. well yes you are pretty close madameoiselle. but the exact answer is still different. it is called mermaid effect bcoz it is called mermaid effect. there is no reason to it. just a name. but since u got the gist absolutely correct. 10/10 to you. kudos! make sure you share it to your friends on facebook with the #mermaideffect challenge challenge to see if they get MERMAIDEFFECTED by you. 😛
        Have Fun 😀
        Thanks for participation in the challenge 😀

    2. The answer is that there is no reason for it to be called specifically MERMAID effect. You can call it Elephant effect or Godzilla effect. The entire article was an attempt to explain you the Mermaid Effect and it was wrapped in the Mermaid Effect itself. The point that you had to think about WHY is it called MERMAID effect shows that I successfully Mermaid Effected you about the question. Making you think there is a logical reason to eat. However as I have mentioned, it is solely a theory that me and my friend has cooked up so it points to the fact that the name has been cooked up as well.
      To be honest, there was no friend. I cooked up everything. Alone. Right from the start 😛
      Thank you for the Participation 😀

      1. Oh…. And I came up with the theory that… As mermaids are found in deep water and there are so many debates going on whether they exist or not. Similarly when we think deep down ourselves about a certain issue only then we came up with the theory that we truly support that issue or not. And we do debates with ourselves whether we should go for it or not…!
        But thanks to prove me I was wrong ;(

    3. Don’t be sad. 😦 Better luck next time. Plus a failed attempt though it was, it helped you not only realise the Mermaid Effect but also this new understanding that you have developed 😀 about how we find the right answer only after we think deep down inside of us. 🙂
      As Edison said, I haven’t failed 1000 times, I just found out 1000 ways to not do what I wanted.
      Thanks again 😀

  1. This was a really awesome read…. I guess the answer would be it is called the mermaid effect because mermaids are half fish and half human meaning they aren’t sure what they are similar to our thinking where we get confused about what we are doing due to the effect

    1. OMG! Someone actually reads my articles!! I am so so sooooo glad you considered it Sir.
      You are the first person to accept the #mermaideffect challenge.
      But I am sorry to say this is still not the correct answer. if I had a way to contact you I will surely tell you the answer, if you want.
      PLEASE do share. PLEASE.

  2. Because you and the rest of the world say that mermaids are supposed to be beautiful and the Harry Potter movies ruined my childhood fantasy of mermaids, ultimately proving that I could clean the canvas in my mind where I have formed a garbled image of beautiful and scary mermaids and form an unbiased image of my own. 😛
    I know that isn’t the answer. But that is good enough for a Potterhead 😀

      1. Haha okay. It has been named so because people will think the effect really has something to do with mermaids while it isn’t so. You just explained the entire theory and asked this question. Now, people, in spite of you telling that it has nothing to do with mermaids will still try to explain in terms of mermaid because you began with an intro of what mermaids are and named it ‘The mermaid effect’.
        Our minds have been prejudiced by your references to mermaids (Tell me this is right 😛 Please :D)

      2. Yay. Btw, regarding HP, you can join the group ‘Pottermore – more than a insider’ in FB. It’s a very active group & you get all the latest updates and fanfics there. Sometimes you could get into some heated debates too 😛

  3. Wow! So you’re a potterhead too, nice to meet you bro. So, ahmm… can I compare mermaid effect to peer pressure or the likes, in which since many people believe things are supposed to work like that or expected to be, so, you come to conclusion also that is how things work and how it is, but in truth, if we just put in more effort and reflect on the things based on fact, we came to the realization that it’s different. Like waking up from a dream or getting lost and realizing that we’re going the wrong way, because we listened to some wrong advice… 🙂 is it something like that? Do forgive my confusing question…although, that was a great article! xD

    1. Yes exactly! That is indeed the concept of the mermaid effect. But the challenge still remains to haunt…
      Why? Just WHY is it called the MERMAID effect?
      PS: Is there a good potter blog you can suggest me to follow over here? Like the ones where we can discuss potter theories and little things that went unnoticed?

      1. I don’t really understand all the idea of that paradox but if I put it in my own analysis…basing on it “mermaid effect”. Mermaid is a mythical being which is just a product of imagination/ideas/belief which when tried to put simply it’s just also the effects of our ideas which may impact on the way we perceive things.

        P.S I don’t really know anything about potter blogs, there are so many out there, I haven’t followed any but there’s one site I always visit it’s this: https://www.pottermore.com/ it’s full of interesting things about harry potter…it’s the main website I think for harry potter. 😀

      2. Jinxx I am on it as well 😀
        But no that is not the reason it is called MERMAID effect. 😛
        The reason is clear out there in the article itself bro. Maybe you could share it and seek help of your friends about the #mermaideffect challenge.
        😀
        So far only one person I have told this to has made it to the right answer. 😛
        It feels really good to know the answer so I promise you it is worth it

      3. hahah. I am cursed. Wish I had hermione here…and she would tell me about the counter-jinx and I’ll know the explanation of that mermaid effect right away… I’ll wait though for the time you’ll reveal the reason. Till then, and I have to do some research on that on the library…although we don’t have library xD! Thanks you have me caught in that idea, it’s puzzling.

  4. I am enjoying this 🙂 … I am reminded of the Golden Mermaid in a Sanskrit poem, who sets about trying to mess up the plans of a Hindu God who is trying to destroy a demon, but she falls in love with him instead. Is this the ‘mermaid effect’? – we loose sight of our objective because it is clouded by emotion? 🙂

    1. Yes Sir indeed! This is the concept of the mermaid effect! But the question still remains,

      It means a lottttt to me 😀

      1. Uuummm… no Sir, The entire article was just a set-up to mermaid effect the reader about the name “Mermaid”. There is no reason. It is something I cooked up! You can call it Elephant effect or Godzilla effect if you want.

  6. you might think i would come up with a logical answer but no .. since you wrote “there isn’t any logical reason as to why mermaids need to be mentioned before The Mermaid Effect.
    It is just a random and stupid convention by me and my friend. “… i assume the name mermaid thoery is just a random convention by you and your friend

  7. I am not sure where did you saw my blog but I thank you for including me on your mermaid effect challenge. Since I love to read including the comments I can say that you are a very talented guy who was able to create an original idea or some random theory making people believe that there is something there when in fact there was none, thus creating a mermaid effect or any other effect on the conscious mind. I loved reading your post because you despite your being young showed intelligence (even though you deny it by saying it was just random and stupid convention of you and your friend). Your post still stir up something for your reader, I love the way you conveyed it by saying, “When you start to draw a masterpiece, the first thing to do is to clear the canvas!
    That’s what she should do. Instead of continuously pinging our soul for an answer, we must give it space and time to think.” This I believe is an old conventional wisdom but you are able to make it your own showing the true nature of oneself. We really are affected by what we hear, see and feel, by words, by pictures by many other outside factors from our family, friends, peers, environment and the world at large which had a way to come into our consciousness, our life in one way or the other. Our ability to use our judgment based on our perception and experiences will really show if we truly have wisdom or not. This is my attempt as a random answer to your mermaid effect challenge. I hope I did good. 🙂 Kudos to you and be blessed always!
