Several years ago, in my own personal "philosophical" intellectual explorations of civil society and psychology, I came to the conclusion that peace cannot be passive. It requires denouncement of error, passionate non tolerating intelligent explanation of mistakes, and the proposal of healing along with the creation of those new ideas which should work better, which means hard work and lots of activities. This also means hands on, or hands up, not hands down. I suddenly realized that that man-symbol would look more like a tree, than just an easy to be run over by ignorant selfish disregard surrender.
A tree represents so much! Ecological self sustainable sciences and philosophies, growth... regeneration and generation of new previously non existent, purification etc.
I always felt so alone with this, I just gave it a name that would join other things I was thinking of, and called it Gaian or Gaia Humanism. ... One day I found in some Navajo art (I think) the inverted peace sign, after talking to a girl on the internet about how she too felt she'd "discovered" inverting the peace sign, and thought to myself "well... you are not so crazy or alone after all" .
Yesterday (because I got suspended from facebook my 8th time in two years already!) I started seeing that I should work on other projects more, and started making a WordPress site. I called it the Unified Humanist Political Gaia Theorem. I called it this because its philosophical base creates a working plane to understand miss-logic and transform just about every institutional and working administrative system that exists, including government or politics, international relations and law.
... I'm telling you all this, because I wanted to share with you how I came to land on your site. ... So I got to where I needed to generate a logo for my Word Press site, and remembered the man I even once drew on a shack door I was living at in Hawaii which was (I'm learning now) a fusion of the Vitruvian man and the inverted peace sign, ... So I googled "peace inverted sign". Lo and behold your site connected to one of the images I found. I started reading your intro and was nearly flabbergasted to see I have been far from being the only to think of all the very same ideas. Amazing! ... and was at the same time taken back by the story of Gerald Holtom and the peace sign itself. His story itself explains so much about why the world is stuck.
We must join, and create a growing movement ! I feel it's time.
8-10-18 - Temo Roldan - Mission, TX - Received this EMAIL message... I responded and I'm currently waiting to hear back from this individual as I found the message a bit puzzling.
I am not sure if this will blow your mind, but I come from a reality where this positive peace sign of yours IS the right-side up version of the peace sign. In 2016, I noticed hundreds if not thousands of small, seemingly insignificant changes to my reality...with an inverted peace sign being just one of them. Now, I am convinced, there is much meaning behind this change, as there is behind many of the Mandela Effects. I am very curious to know if you are aware of the Mandela Effect, or perhaps even affected by it. Even if you are not, I think you are on to something and I am spreading the word among my ME affected friends. So consider, if you will, that it wouldn't just be better to switch to the positive symbol, but that it really WAS and has always been this way in the first place.

11.3.16 -Farida Gillot -https://www.facebook.com/krishnaa.fmg - "I think it's very essential to use the peace symbol right positioned. I experience this over and over again. For many years I'm trying to make people aware of the wrong positioned peace symbol. I was aware of it that Satanists turn all symbols up side down, like the pentagram, the swastica, the Aum-sign, (sacred) texts, etc. So, long ago I was wondering if with the peace sign it would be the same, as so many people are wearing or using it, and the opposite is happening. And yes, my suspicion was unfortunately true."
