JOHN: i was sure the other me knew so much more than i did at the time.

JOHN: did i just make some sort of stable retcon loop?
JOHN: does that even make sense??

JOHN: it was like... a retroactively preemptive continuity adjustment.
JOHN: retroactively preemptive???

JOHN: i need to be more careful.
