Bio
RAISE THAT LANTERN HIGH
retcon:
v. to retroactively revise (a plot, storyline, character, event, history, etc.), usu. by reinterpreting past events, or by theorizing how the present would be different if past events had not happened or had happened differently.

Etymological Note: retroactive + continuity
see also Elgin Frank Tupper's 1974 book The theology of Wolfhart Pannenberg:
Pannenberg's conception of retroactive continuity ultimately means that history flows fundamentally from the future into the past, that the future is not basically a product of the past.
