Worth A Read. Honest.

Hi. I live in 200 Sherbourne Street in apartment 701.

Its a low rise building in the south/south east quadrant of Toronto. Its low income housing. Its well kept and the in house staff are good. The security is good too but there's only on site security on week nights.

The contractors can anywhere between awesome to assholes. Maybe its that way everywhere but I don't think so. Heck, even I can be an asshole sometimes but if you are going to be, you'd better have a good reason because I'm hoping that nobody likes to be an asshole.

I believe in a world where everyone takes responsibility for their own actions. That way if you believe that what you are doing is right, you'll defend it.

If it is clearly wrong, you're more likely to hide it or at least own up to it and try to do better.

I'm a Taoist and a Buddhist.

I don't believe in god or the devil. For the most part I find those concepts to be the role of human collectives. I don't believe that god is a collective. I don't believe in the bible or the quran either and I am not a member of any religion that has a concept of Kane and Abel or Isaac and Ishmael or the Mark Of The Beast. I mean I love the Biblical account of the Exodus and the story of Moses, and certainly that of King Solomon and King David but I refuse to be part of any religion that divides people up according to Kane blood and Abel blood or denies people the right to heaven because they have the mark of the beast which to many religious people seems to mean an anxious or angry response to abuse.

I mean I believe that everyone should choose their own belief or religion (or none), but nobody should be able to force others to choose what they believe.

It seems to me that the world is slowly becoming enforced to join a collective of the mind, and that many are being held prisoners in their own minds and against the rule of law and their human rights.

It doesn't seem to me that this is something being done by the system, or the authorities and they're probably just as much at threat. I'm certain they'd be the first to defend the rights of others to choose their own beliefs. The second you deny someone that right, you are losing your own right to choose your belief as well.

Is it me or doesn't anyone else think that this is wrong? I mean enforced collectivism is slavery. Cooperation isn't. The most rapid growth of our civilization began when we started consensually cooperating, not maliciously enforcing collectivism. So if you don't like it, then stand against it. Change it! I mean I can't be the only one and as a matter of fact when I was out walking earlier, many many people subtly indicated their support. What would you want to bet that people doing that are doing so as a means of aggressive conversion, playing the opposite side to the religion that they want to convert everyone to. Prince Hall is like that. They're the mirror side of the Jehovah's Witnesses, and the two groups play off of each other as a form of aggressive conversion to their religion which has been outlawed in a number of countries as a result of the unrest it causes. You're imprisoned by one, and rescued by the other as long as you follow their mandate and beliefs. If you choose of your own free will and volition to believe in it, that's your freedom to do so. If others don't, then respect their freedom not to be a part of either side of that paradigm. We live in a country that operates under the rule of law and the human rights act and a backing Constitution.

I just got over days of abuse and harassment of the same nature and had begun the process of healing. I had a group of people begin to attack me at about 1:15am tonight. Some people who'd come in from the street up to my floor and did their harassment from the hallway. I know its cold outside but if you want a warm place to stay, the last thing that you should do is sneak in and start conflict. I guess if I had gotten up and chased them out or called security on them, I'd be on the hate side of the fence and left to wallow in my own misery.

Not to mention, I'd signed a petition for only a few hours earlier. You know, I'd really like to see support from for members of the European and Asian communities as well. I've signed just about every single one of their petitions supporting rights for Women across the board, but there has never been a petition that has specifically included support for European and Asian Women. That's a large demographic of people who need our support as well. Then there's also North and South America too. And we can't forget Oceania as well. I'll definitely address a kind but assertive letter to them to encourage that possibility.

The point is that none should be overshadowed for any reason. When it comes to human rights, bias has no place. When it comes to private matters of relationship and affection, bias is everything. Support of human rights is not bias for a relationship as supporting someone else's rights isn't an application to have a date with them or to sleep with them. Relationships and romance is all about bias. In fact, that's all we have to express for our partners and our right to bias and protecting it should be a part of our human rights as well.

I mean, if someone tricks you into a situation where your bias is elusively more than it is for someone that you purport to care for, that doesn't mean that you are no longer in a relationship with the consenting person you care for and are now in a relationship with the one for whom you were tricked into elusively having more bias. Not at all. That's slavery and an attempt of ownership too and there are people who try things of that nature. Making it into a hidden game they sometimes target against someone. I mean having enough time to plan and execute a game like that against someone must be a living hell! I mean I can't imagine a large group of people having that much time to waste on doing that to a naive, innocent or any kind of person. Maybe that's the top of the bottom? Like the heaven in hell?

As I've said, its not like I'm racist at all but I don't like being targeted by specific groups of people. As a matter of fact, a few years ago I started writing a story about the early beginnings of Jazz music in New Orleans. From the point I'd started writing the story, publishing it as I went, I was literally harassed and attacked by members of these groups despite the fact that the majority of the cast were African Americans and French Louisiana colonials, which coincides with much of the early history of Jazz in New Orleans. The story was called The Answer Is In The Keys. Actually it is from these French and Latin colonials that the Creole language originates in New Orleans. I've been to the Big Easy but unfortunately I was only a "little easy" being nine years old. I didn't get to see the great Jazz shows they had at night, but I did manage to hear a lot of music from the hotel room and while walking the streets with my family during the day.

There wasn't any real cliche or stigma associated with the story and as per usual I made my characters deep, interesting and intelligent yet I was abused by these same people. So I scapped the entire story and took it down from my website at that time: I encourage Women not to accept abuse. I mean purposeful targeted abuse against their person. So why should I accept the same thing and why when it does happen, verbal or otherwise? Should I reward the people who abuse me by continuing whatever it is they're abusing me for? That creates a cycle that constantly repeats itself, so Women, don't reward abuse, and remember to enforce no means no if that is of your choosing and intent.

Brian Joseph Johns too.
I'd posted many a good photos of my city of Toronto, trying to build up some positive energy for the city. I'm not a member of any hate ideology as I believe in calm and balance of mood and mind. If you go extreme in anything, you have to do it in balance and at your own pace lest you get bowled over by extremity.

I mean be careful of the see-saw response. That's a natural human response in most people if not all of them that results when confronted with a situation of polar extremity. Almost always most people respond with the opposite. In this way some people intend to play you and much like a see-saw, the higher the one side pushes the higher the other side goes. So if someone is trying to dethrone your peace and calm, that's likely the strategy they'll use. In fact that seems to be taking on a monkey see/monkey do phenomenology throughout society, whereby one group of people learns to do this after seeing another group of people
doing it and it runs out of control from there.

I'd be willing to bet that this is the method behind radicalization that has been resulting in violent attacks throughout North America and Europe though they seem to have died down for the time thankfully but that doesn't mean that they've disappeared. I mean if you're on an emotional see-saw with other people, they could push the see-saw a little harder than you could handle and off the handle you go! Maybe an angry outburst? Maybe run out to your garage and grab a firearm and just start shooting people? Maybe you might experience this too many times and plan an organized assault, trying to target the same people you believe to be responsible for putting you through it? That's likely the scenario from these situations.

Most of those situations arise out of other people using our secrets as puppet strings against us. Another form of unspoken slavery. I mean if someone wants to "Geppetto" you, they only need access to your secrets. For most people that means having their Internet spied upon or their communications device channels intercepted. Mind reading and ESP too. I mean if our brains are electrochemical circuits, that means that all of our thoughts produce an electromagnetic field. Whats to stop someone else's brain from intercepting that and reinterpreting that information? I mean if you can do that, then what would stop you from intercepting the magnetic field of someone hearing their own voice while talking. I mean we're making devices that respond to our thoughts and they're doing the exact things I just described. I'd be willing to bet that our brains and nervous system can do the exact same thing too. So there's a whole range of means through which our secrets can end up in the hands of people who will use them as puppet strings against us. It doesn't really matter the morality of the nature of your secret, though I expect that depending upon its severity it is probably very unsettling to have someone with your secrets, and then to hint to you that they know them, perhaps purposely so as to manipulate you.

I'd be willing to bet that for many people this is a potential stress killer. This could be the method to the Mafia's word of death. Hint at secrets whose very expression demands explanation. It is by these means that they'd build stress and perhaps burst an artery or strain the heart and its the end.

Some religions might even use this as a means of extraction from people. Perhaps alright for expert interrogators trying to find a murderer or obtain a confession but in the hands of the malicious that could be a very dangerous power to wield. Hence I'd suggest to anyone to not be worried about their own secrets unless you are a murderer, vicious or even calm and silent criminal. The reason is that this kind of power has a profound effect to shape us in dangerous ways. I mean if someone can pressure you about the secret of having read a specific book, maybe a controversial one like Catcher In The Rye, then what are the chances that they might try to condition you not to read certain kinds of books? Books that expanded your thinking enough to challenge the kind of people who'd try to cull your reading habits?

I'm not writing this for that particular reason. I mean I really don't care what people know about what I have read and what I haven't. If I did, then someone could really change the course of my reading, meaning they could limit me only to reading books that supported a specific religion, or maybe books that espoused the ideals of a specific ideology. I don't think my secrets are more important than my freedom to choose my path of education and exploration in life. I'd hope that anyone else would feel the same way too. The best way to take away the power of anyone's war cabinet in that regard is to be at peace with yourself and even be unafraid to explain yourself if someone does attempt to destabilize you.

Remember that the kind of people who do that are exactly like the kind of people who try to wield power over others based upon Kane and Abel. That means they believe that you have the right to heaven if and only if you aren't possessed of reactive or violent blood and such people usually set the terms of such a test themselves. So that means they're in control of who gets to go to heaven and who doesn't. Having that kind of power over someone tends to corrupt. So the people who'd use your secrets in that way are no better because they're trying to use them to limit you and to control you. In other words to have power over you to determine your future.

Really this post is the culmination of reworking the vitriol of posts I'd been making in response to being a victim of stalking and social abuse. I managed to stand back enough and piece it together while whittling away the embedded anxiety and came up with much of this. It reads much better and is free of anxiety spurred writing while still having some of the same spark that ignited it.

Anyway, I hope that someone got something out of that. I did in writing it and I just barely managed to avoid writing another long winded vitriol post and instead turned out something valuable and good that isn't even fiction.

Warning To Content Creators!

A warning to content creators everywhere. There are people who will try to destroy your brand by stalking and abusing you in public and while not under the scrutiny of a camera or recording device. Instead their abuse is geared towards causing you to spiral out of control and rant online in such a way that will destroy you and your content brand or worse, attempt to weaponize you into attempting to destroy someone else's content brand.

Have you noticed how many content producers have ended up in conflict with one another? I'd say that digital, film, online and broadcast media is under attack. As a matter of fact, I'd include many aspects of our society that are under attack, including ones that helped to defend our sovereignty and our ideals in representation of our role in the United Nations. I'm talking about our Military. It would appear that we're being played against each other. A sort of divisive bifurcation that is separating us  into ever smaller sub-groups, many of whom are at war with one another. I know. I almost fell for the whole thing, hook line and sinker myself.

The smaller brands need to help one another and when possible, team up with the bigger brands while making sure that nobody is sabotaging your media presence and character. Often such people will attempt to rile you up using the see-saw method I've described here. They're exploiting the natural reaction we have when confronted to present the opposite. As I said in the see-saw example from above, the harder one side pushes, the higher the other side goes. When this is referring to our emotional state, that means you can be pushed to anxiety or anger by this method, and both can serve to put you into situations where you'll really misrepresent yourself and the interests of your brand. I'd highly recommend that you avoid feeling vengeful too. That doesn't lead anywhere but to more see-saw treatment, only this time the see-saw is vengeance.

As I stated above, it is this exact methodology that has likely resulted in many violent attacks throughout North America and Europe. The only difference with how we're being played as people is the extremity with which we react to the see-saw method.

Insofar as content producers go, no matter how honest and hard working you are at what you do, there are people who will spy on your market penetration statistics and if they feel so inclined, they'll stalk and harass you as a means to destroy your brand or outright steal it from you and give it to someone closer to their ideology.

Please. I urge you to be careful and not just for my sake, please do make a stand against this. Don't let other people define what colours mean for you unless you're choosing by your own freewill to go along with it.

Their interpretation is subjective. Any colour can mean love, even more than one at a time and for some people, they all do. That's up to you. Don't let anyone take that away from you and remember that it is the Armed Forces that have ultimately protected those rights for us many times over. Our savior green protecting every one of our colours, even other greens.

One last thing. Despite my having created a Butterfly Dragon character that I've used on DC Universe Online, my book and the characters of The Butterfly Dragon are NOT affiliated with nor a part of the DC Universe though the DC Universe is excellent content and the home of some of my favourite superhero brands, namely Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Aqua Man and the Joker (perhaps the first iconic villain). More recently I am looking forward to seeing Shazam. That really looks it is going to be really good.

Likewise, the Marvel Universe, the incredible brainchild of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and many others including the legendary John Romita and Tod McFarlane is the home of some of my favourite heroes including Iron Man, Spiderman, Captain (Ms) Marvel, The Hulk, The Black Widow, Lady Deathstrike, The Thing, Wolverine, The Avengers, Ghost Rider, Wolverine, Werewolf By Night, Kung Fu Master, Moon Knight, Punisher, Dr. Doom, Silver Surfer, Galactus and so many more that it would take me the whole night to finish naming them here. My characters of Shhhh! Digital Media unfortunately are not a part of the Marvel Universe either though I'd be hard pressed to pick which one I'd like to see them unite with.

The Butterfly Dragon, A Lady's Prerogative, Pleromaworld, The Legendary Of Xarn and Stories From The End are all a part of the SMU: The Shhhh! (Digital) Media Universe.

I'd rather the SMU be a third macro-universe in the multiverse that could interact with either the Marvel Universe or the DC Universe. I only have one stipulation and that is that I believe that it is wrong for comics to sell any particular religion. I don't mean that it is wrong to have religious characters in a fictional world.

I mean in my A Lady's Prerogative books, the Sanctum is composed of close to thirty or forty different forms of mystic belief. Some based upon those of our real world though with their own spin (much like Neil Gaiman's Sandman and American Gods which none of my books draw from), while others are completely original. None of them are sold as the one true answer because for any one of us, that's subjective as should be the yardstick by which one measures oneself. I tend to lean towards diversity in that arena, even keeping my own chosen faiths (of Taoism and Buddhism) in a lower key role within any of the series of books that I write. Nothing I write is a device for conversion to my religion or to any religion for that matter.

I mean if a God (or Goddess more likely) who created us, gave us freewill, then why would we be forced into any particular religion at all and told that all others are wrong? Do we even need to choose a religion? What's the rush? From a young age (I mean from our early teens), we only need to start with learning about and understanding our independence of mind and the confidence to make our own decisions and to be ready for the responsibility that those decisions incur, remembering that not everyone has our best intentions in mind and that some may try to trick you into contradicting your own integrity. Having that we'll eventually gravitate towards the place in the world that best suits us. Keep in mind that all of this is far easier said than done and I can attest to that personally but retrospection is our greatest learning tool.

Don't let others take any of what you say or do away from you via colour symbolism or by any means. Those things will help you to grow.

Now I'm off to enjoy some East Asia alien asparagus magnolia porn.

A Post For The Sake Of GetfitwJessica

Brian Joseph Johns. 
I'm still the guy with the 
cowboy hat, without the hat. 

Still have a red nose from 
my 160W artificial suntan.
Hi again. Back with a bit of explanation for my recent twitter and facebook activity though it shouldn't need justification at all.

I was perusing YouTube and amongst the suggested videos in my feed was a video from YouTube content producer GetfitwJessica.

She's actually quite a remarkable Woman who has transformed herself via diet and exercise, losing 170 lbs over the course of a year.

She's the kind of Woman that inspired characters like Alicia Westin from my book The Butterfly Dragon, though Alicia Westin was drawn from three Women I'd really known while a teenager. Two of them were beautiful Women (I am speaking of Penny and Jackie) whom believed they had a weight issue, over which both of them weren't publicly perplexed but when alone they'd revealed how it affected them emotionally and in terms of their self esteem.

I wrote the character Alicia Westin around that idea of inner conflict with one's self image and their self esteem. In my book The Butterfly Dragon, Alicia is able to liberate herself from her weight issue in a remarkable way that is ultimately made possible by her best friend from high school. In the book its an act of kindness that sets off a chain of events that end up changing the world.

Please hold back that gag me with shovel response whenever someone writes about something so optimistic or idealistically naive. Things of that nature actually happen all of the time, but it takes years and sometimes the passing of the people involved before we immortalize them with an account of their own story.

I mean haven't any of you just once in your life been the recipient of an act of kindness, generosity or encouragement that was so pivotal in your life that if it didn't happen, the rest of your life from that point onwards would have turned out so differently?

Our experiences in life shape us, and many of those experiences are beyond our control and in the hands of others who might not be consciously out to get us, and many of those people have it in their power to affect someone else in a way that could potentially transform them, though in such a case it almost always requires the trust or the courage of the recipient for that leap of faith.

So in the book, Alicia, a girl with a weight problem who is also a mathematical and scientific genius and is making her way through high school is offered a trade by and student, Ai Yuanlin Ying (who is also called Heylyn Yates in the book), the other girl who is the daughter of Chinese immigrants. The trade being that in exchange for Alicia's tutelage in Math and Chemistry, Ai Yuanlin Ying will make Alicia a dress for the Graduation Prom. Alicia at that point had never considered the possibility of even going to a dance let alone the Prom. Ai Yuanlin Ying convinces Alicia to accept the trade. To take the leap of faith and go to the Prom. As it turns out, the dress is a work of art and helps Alicia to see herself as the beauty that she really is. She ends up going to the Prom and is so transformed by the experience that she decides that she is going to pursue her life's dreams rather than hide from the world. It is that turn of events that result in changing the world. Just one small act of kindness in the scheme of things and a bit of faith.

Something that in the current situation with love/hate/blood politics and polarity might never happen on its own, naturally, unless we change our attitudes and motivations in that way. The reason being that everyone who might consider an act of encouraging kindness to someone else might immediately rule it out as a result of those social politics. People seem more interested in which team says or does something than the nature of what good is done.

I mean if I had been thinking in those terms, I likely wouldn't have taken the chance to watch or even highlight Jessica's video, which as it turns out wasn't even about weight loss. The video was actually about Jessica's case of Hodgkins Lymphona, and the fact that her hair loss was so rapid as a result of chemotherapy that she decided to shave her head, essentially believing that she was losing what many Women believe to be a crowning aspect of their beauty. I watched the video and read the description and was completely emotionally stunned by the video. Jessica is gifted with an absolutely beautifully sculpted face and curvaceous nose and brow line. Quite a remarkable beauty hidden beneath that hair. So I hadn't even known about the fact that she'd lost 170 lbs through diet and exercise perhaps a couple of years earlier. So here's this Woman who after overcoming one of the most challenging hurdles that one can overcome, she is met with another astounding challenge in the form of Hodgkins Lymphoma. So if you watch the video, keep that in mind when you see how she handles the whole experience.

That's not to say that people shouldn't protest what isn't right, and that sometimes protest is mistaken for complaining. There's a big difference between what occurs naturally in life as a result of the natural progression of things and what occurs as a result of conscious planning and malice by people. Some people use the issue of complaining as a form of politics to push others down and to prop others up. So its right up there with the same love/hate/blood politics that have been dividing people for a very long time. Most complaints are architected by others seeking to discredit someone by comparing them to someone that has it much worse by way of natural process and doesn't complain. I'm not using Jessica to justify my protest against abuse but rather to explain how things unfold when I chose to highlight Jessica's video and share it on Twitter and Facebook. When I did, I wasn't even thinking about the kind of socially charged political bullshit that is so prevalent these days. I was thinking, if I see this Woman in this regard as being confident and beautiful in the worst of circumstances against her (not orchestrated by other people to harm her), then perhaps a lot of other people will see the same thing or even something more in her, that I'd missed.

Not long after sharing her video, I became the subject of love/hate/blood and racial politics of my neighbours as is the usual case. They seemed to think that because Jessica is or appears to be Biafran, that I was not acting under my own free will in sharing her video and story but under the mind control or influence of people in their abusive ideology. Now if I had ruled out sharing the video in the first place out of fear of what would happen by way of love/hate/blood and race politics, then maybe there's a door that might now have opened for Jessica, though I'd never be so pretentious to take the credit for anything that benefits her that is clearly a result of her perseverance and good attitude, regardless of what her religion is and its difference from mine. The point is that as more and more people are bullied by others possessed of that propensity for love/hate/blood and race politics, less and less people will take chances to help people across gender, political, religious and racial boundaries as a result of the grief that it may bring them in doing so.

So in sharing Jessica's story and her video, I am even more so deeply committed to my Mandarin Chinese love interest, though race in this situation should have and play no bearing at all.

Jessica is a wonderfully beautiful and inspiring Woman who has overcome and is still overcoming hurdles that have been lined up against her by natural causes. Just like all of us, she has all the wonderful attributes that we see and all of the character flaws that we don't see.

The point is that when someone is sharing something about a person of Jessica's ilk, if they're sharing it, they're sharing it for the good in her. Not as a prop for love/hate/blood and race politics. I hope that after this post and my sharing her video that she doesn't experience any negative or burdensome repercussions as a result of people trying to sway her to one side or the other, though I doubt that she would find such obstacles challenging as she's already beat a 170 lbs weight condition and is currently kicking the ass of Hodgkins Lymphoma. That doesn't mean that you should introduce any more challenges for her than she already has.

So here's her video:

For more information about Hodgkins Lymphoma please navigate here or search Hodgkins Lymphoma at In the name of people like Jessica all over the world you might want to consider making a donation to the American Cancer Society or if you're like me and live in Canada, please consider giving the the Canadian Cancer Society.

If you live elsewhere, please consider giving to your favourite Cancer charity.

In case you haven't noticed, I reposted The Butterfly Dragon I: Heroes Of Our Own to benefit people who are taking on Hodgkins Lymphoma.

Thank you to all my readers. I'll be back soon with more for A Lady's Prerogative III (both the Debate and Singularity) in time for March 8th. Thanks to our law enforcement, fire fighters and medical personnel as well (municipal, provincial and federal). I don't say thank you often enough to them. Thanks to Jessica for the opportunity to write something of this nature. Also, thanks to Brad Thornton for the inspiring words yesterday on Facebook.

Mandela Effect...

Brian Joseph Johns aka Weltherwithsp
Alright. I love magic and mystery but it must be real. When we encounter the unknown it must pass the hallmarks of objectivity so that we may distinguish what is worthy of investigation.

The Mandela Effect is the illusion that arises from the belief that reality is or has been temporally transformed. Essentially changed from what its linear path had promised to a different outcome perhaps the result of bifurcation. Bifurcation being a fractal expression of a branch in time and space involving two possible outcomes. If we map such possibilities to every (or any) possible branching pathway in reality we end up with infinite possible realities, each a different branch point from its predecessor.

The Mandela Effect is aptly named from the phenomenon involving a large number of people falsely remembering that Nelson Mandela had died in the 1980s. When in the 1990s he'd been released from his imprisonment many were startled to find out that he'd actually lived. In other words, these people claimed to have experienced an alternate version of reality.

The truth is however a bit simpler and involves an unsung hero of human rights in South African Apartheid. I'm speaking of course of Doctor Stephen Biko, who was even immortalized in a song by the Irish Rock band Simple Minds. The preceding link involves a concert version of the song played by Simple Minds and Genesis alumni Peter Gabriel. Back in the day when many musicians feeling responsible for their influence chose to attempt to make the world a better place. Something brought about by Ultravox Alumni Midge Ure and Boomtown Rats member Bob Geldof.

This isn't about exploiting Doctor Stephen Biko as much as it is about bringing some light to the Mandela Effect and the fact that most people who remembered Mandela's death in the 1980s had actually remembered the death of Doctor Stephen Biko, essentially overshadowing Biko's importance to the liberation of South African Apartheid from history though don't blame the people of Apartheid.

They were part of a structure they did not understand or know of. As much victims as the native South Africans from whom they'd been kept apart. The enemy of peace is often polarity or the misinterpretation thereof. I get angry too when mistreated and I'm often no better than those who find such reasons to hate. Abuse often creates the polarity needed to keep a cycle of hate going. Much like the internal combustion engine, which is essentially an overcomplicated piston based see-saw. So this isn't about elevating myself as much as it is bringing truth to light.

The mysteries of Quantum Physics and the Multiple Worlds interpretation thereof aren't necessarily lies in the face of the fact that we've remembered alternate versions of reality. Sometimes versions of which we have no possible way of proving or disproving. Does that necessarily mean that we've disproven the Mandela Effect?

No. Not at all. It does mean that we've liberated one aspect of history from misinterpretation and misinformation. Its not entirely beyond the realm of possibility that there are those who are trying to create an alternate version of history by rewriting the present. The only way that we can prevent such a thing is by recalling the truth as we remember it, though when it comes to time and history, it seems that even truth can be subjective. So the only truth we really have is that for which we stand currently.

So I've chosen to make my stand in remembering the fact that it was Doctor Stephen Biko, Apartheid activist who died and was remembered as Nelson Mandela, essentially disappearing from popular history to be replaced by Nelson Mandela.

Its a risk to point this out, especially as a Caucasian person for risk of losing my own identity thereof, and especially because my love interest is actually Mandarin Chinese. Honestly though I felt that it was important, and far more important than my own self needs to point out this discrepancy of time and space.

She'd certainly be impressed, maybe even enough so to garner another chance with her. Regardless its a worthy cause.

So, my point being that the Mandela Effect isn't necessarily false, but it most certainly might be true, but more aptly called the Doctor Stephen Biko effect, because it was Doctor Stephen Biko whom was nearly erased from being remembered as an anti-Apartheid activist who changed history simply by dying and being incorrectly remembered as Nelson Mandela.

If you've plans to hurt me whilst I'm out and about, please remember that I'm the person who helped to clarify this issue. I deserve a little peace too.
