What if we have accidentally disrupted the planet… AND THE MAGMA IS STILL MOVING?
Welcome to the world of Nicholas Jakari… Poet, actor, sometime economist: and travelling storyteller.


This site will eventually be the home for all my work. For the present it is the home of “The Jonker Memorandum”. [pronounced “Yonka”]

The Jonker Memorandum is what i call a bedtime story. Since [where i live] few people seem to read anymore, i decided to read the world a bedtime story. So… Once upon a time…


Back in ’98 i had a bad thought following a series of ‘tit for tat’ “Nuke” tests, carried out between India [Grimdeer] and Pakistan [Grabbistan]. My Thought? [as you may already have noted]: “What if we have accidentally disrupted the planet… through introducing dischord to its internal rhythms… and the magma just keeps moving?” Like the coffee that keeps slopping for a while in the cup when it is moved abruptly.  I called this ‘disruption’ “The Ringing”. Events since 1998: a clutter of tsunamis, earthquakes, climate change and abnormal weather patterns seem to echo my bad thought… and then some…
For instance, there have been more than 70 ‘explosive’ seismic events [mainly earthquakes] on a Richter scale greater than Hiroshima [6.0] of which we have a record over many millenia. Of these more than 40 have been recorded this century i.e. the 21st century [as at April 20th 2016]. I’m sure that level of evidence in a court case would find someone guilty… but of what… Moving the innards of the planet?

However this story is [i think] fictional [especially since it is about things that hadn’t happened or in many cases not even been thought of when the writing began back in 1994.]. It is Part 3 of a series of tales set against the background of the [so-called] ‘Mzansian Revolution’[1994] in the southern part of Afrika, where i live. Parts 1 and 2 are respectively “The Buffalo Hunters” and the “The Ashanti Raider”, both of which will become available eventually when i figure out how to do it, off this site, in digital form… as will the text of the ‘Jonker’.


This tale: “The Jonker Memorandum” involves a series of themes that relate to what is happening on our planet right now: financial bubbles and meltdown and gender violence amongst others, and, as part of the story, presents a series of arguments relevant to the following ideas:-…


What if women eventually rebel against an [apparently threatened] world of male dominance? What if there is a way to solve the world’s financial circumstances that involves a reinterpretation of the world as we now know it to be… as it becomes the world of the new ‘Knowledge economy’? A world running on “Basic Pay”.  What kind of a world would you have to have  to enable someone, specifically a woman, to randomly walk the country naked, with a purse of gold upon her head, and not be molested? It was said that this was true of the empire [brutally] created by Genghis Khan… how could it be replicated and still be in accordance with the best Konstitutional provisions?


And what if all this complicated stuff is wrapped up inside a cool adventure story: “The Jonker Memorandum”.


Listen and decide for yourself … and understand that the story takes 84 episodes from start to finish: and it would help to have both a reasonably long attention and retention span: because as in life generally everything that happens is of relevance.


For new listeners: click on ‘Podcast’ to go to the “Jonker Memorandum” storypage. All episodes appear down a vertical line: you simply scroll on and on, from 1 to the end. There is minimal accompanying text, beyond a bald intro’ to the episode.

You are also allowed to make a donation on a page designed to replicate a song from the 1930’s, which we hope is not a metaphor for the 21st century.


Thank you for listening and may this tale intrigue you as it has others.

  1. Haven’t had a chance to completely view the site nor listen but so far, it looks great. I’ll be watching closely.
    Kind regards Mr Msikinya.

    • Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But just imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field. Very good blog!

  2. I’m really glad I’ve found this info about nicholasjakari.com | dekonstruckting the multiverse. Nowadays, bloggers create content about gossip and it is really annoying. A great website with exciting content is what I need. Thanks for making this web-site, and I will be visiting again. It would be a great honor to have you visit my web-site. Thank you!

  3. Hi Nic,
    hope you remember me from the German school.

    ould like to contact you.
    Hope you are well, sorry excellent

    Best regards


    • Hi Manfred

      thanks for the contact and yes i am still excellent albeit engulfed. Hope all is well with you back in the homeland: and that you enjoy following what is starting to become a curiously ‘prophetic’ tale. I recollect congenial evenings in warm snug pubs and tankards of beer. You may recollect many of the themes which i tended to explore exhaustively with all who could manage the time; picking up, as it were, the trend to the Transaction levy, the crisis caused by rape, all over the planet,not just here, and the possible emergence this week of a prospective [potential] “Korinth Starr” in our own Mzansi. Will she do what i predict in the story… would she have the courage… or does she turn out to be another rent collector? That’s what is so cool about fiction… people do things.

      Best wishes

  4. I love what you guys tend to be up too. This sort of clever work and reporting! Keep up the terrific works guys I’ve incorporated you guys to my personal blogroll.

  5. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    • I do remember a Marilyn Dacey who worked with me in the Fire Dept of the long extinct Norwich Union [well around Mzansi anyway]… and have most congenial recollections of that person… Should you be she then greetings and may you enjoy this long and complex tale… who knows you may have had a micro part in its evolution.Good to know you are still ok [i hope][It did take a while for me to see this and so apologies for delay: naughty author: neglecting listeners.

  6. Wow, amazing blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is magnificent, let alone the content!. Thanks For Your story, nicholasjakari.com / dekonstruckting the multiverse .

  7. Hi Sir.

    (if I am still in the midst of your memories) – How’s everything going?
    I remember my bafflement when you first mentioned some of this Jonker…uhm…”stuff” in class. Can’t say I understood it then, and honestly I thought it was the result of too many hours of business lectures being met with blank gazes…
    But I started reading some of it recently and it has to be said that it is thought-provoking at the least.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    • Greetings Mr Brown, I do seem to recollect that you were a lone person in a classroom filled with sometimes rowdy and always competitively demanding young ladies who sat at opposite sides of the classroom: sometimes sniping across the gap within which you dwelt. You were i recollect remarkable for ignoring it all and simply pursuing your purpose. Well done. Always happy to hear from past Learners and hope that like others you are figuring out the madness of it all, as you forge on with making a good life. Not all the appearances and ‘gazes’are blank or you would never all have ‘gotten’ through: would you? Glad you’re finding the material provokative. There is a growing current running along my route suggesting that the times that have changed are busy continuing to change… and i am having a great time rolling along with it. Be well and enjoy.

  8. Hi Sir its me Mr Miguel! I’ve just read your article and I must say, I don’t understand a thing! But it was nice reading! And that one comment is right! Get some pics or videos! See you on Monday! Kind regards! Sedler Awesome Miguel

  9. You are very educational every time we meet I learn something about life and the respect that you always have erespective of age ,race or colour I wish you well my friend.
    God Bless you and your family.

  10. Some say that it takes a lifetime of reflecting to realize how immensely blessed we are. But after precisely 5 months out of high school I realized that having a man of your intellectual capacity as my teacher in school and life was a life-long blessing. Although it took me an eternity to figure out most pieces, I have to say that the work you display on your website is of tremendous quality, sir.. And I take a lot of pride in the fact that I can say that I had you as a mentor growing up. You sir definitely create a great influence in the lives of those who are privileged enough to witness the master in you and your writings and may you keep on stimulating both old and young minds for a long time.
    Greetings Mr. Willie,
    Elizandro Casteira
