MENTAL NOTE #140, What You Want At What Cost

MENTAL NOTE #140: “You can get whatever you want in life, but at what cost? That’s been the story of my life”. ~ Jamie Thomas ~

Jamie Thomas : He is a Professional Skateboarder and Entrepreneur, but it didn’t come easily — Never does, usually. He and two friends went to California to become Pro Skateboarders, but he took hard knocks all the way to get to that dream. At one point early on, they were so broke, they were panhandling for change in San Francisco, and eating scraps of leftovers from a pizza joint. And at night, they would often sleep outside, sometimes in the bowl, at the skateboard park. I won’t go into his full story here, but the sacrifices he made for a long time, to first just get off the streets, and after time, to get skateboard sponsorships, and then starting businesses, was a journey of unending perseverance, total dedication, never giving up, and taking risks. This same core life philosophy can also be applied to whatever you are driven by in life.

TWISTED SUFFOCATION

TWISTED SUFFOCATION — Rorschach Art Photography, by Nawfal Johnson

THE INFLUENCE FOR THIS WORK:

“UNSEEN” ~ By THE GHOST INSIDE.

Here are the first two verses of this song: These words hit me kind of hard, as I recently lost someone close to me.

“Unseen”: ~”One foot in the grave and one hand in the sky
Heaven comes with a price
If all I know is Hell
How will I ever find paradise?
Rabid are the wolves within
That hunt with a vengeful sickness
When the innocent lose their innocence
How can they find forgiveness? ~ It took everything
To find a shred of hope in only shadows of me
So am I guilty for trying to put my mind at ease?
This pain is unseen.” ~

MIRRORED ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY” (aka “RORSCHACH ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY”) Series Years: 2007 to Present (On-Going). These pieces are colour and Black & White, abstract images that are designed with a mirrored effect, also known as Rorschach Art. Sometimes the mirrored image is an exact opposite-duplicate for both sides. However, in some cases, one half is ALMOST a mirrored duplicate, but with a few compositional differences. Some pieces are urban, others rural…some have a mechanical or structural-chaotic focus. At times, the formations you can see in the artworks may appear ominous, even scary, or evil. Nevertheless, the viewer of my portfolio can decide for themselves what they see in these MIRRORED ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY images.

MENTAL NOTE #137, I NEED YOUR HELP! TO THE FEW BLOGGERS WHO ACTUALLY SEE MY BLOG POSTS NOW, I SUSPECT MY NAWFALARTPHOTOGRAPHY BLOG IS TOTALLY SHADOW BANNED, SO WHAT KIND OF ANTI-FREEDOM OF SPEECH OUTFIT HAS WORDPRESS BECOME! Please Read the entire post to consider helping me in this Shadow Banning Experiment.

My Traffic per Post has Flat-lined! This is how WordPress treats bloggers who have been supporting their publishing platform, for nearly 16 Years (as a contributor)! Maybe they have become part of the LameStream Globalist Media Cabal? Seems like it. CENSORSHIP must be alive and well at WordPress. At least, it certainly seems that way. Either that, or SUDDENLY PEOPLE JUST COMPLETELY HATE EVERY SINGLE POST OF MY. I don’t count that out, but the Shadow Banning seems more plausible to me based on the consistency of flat-lining views per post since my Free Speech posts over a month ago: I think I hit a nerve.

IT’S NOT EVEN WORTH MY TIME CREATING POSTS HERE ANYMORE!

HOWEVER, I WOULD LIKE TO PROVE THAT WORDPRESS IS SHADOW BANNING MY BLOG, AND HERE IS HOW I CAN PROVE IT, but I NEED YOUR HELP — THIS IS FOR THE HANDFUL OF BLOGGERS WHO ARE SEEING MY POSTS — You know who you are 🙂 !

☆ I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU TO PLEASE MENTION TO YOUR SUBSCRIBERS TO GO TO THIS BLOG POST ( give them the post link: https://nawfalartphotography.wordpress.com/2021/02/21/mental-note-137-i-need-your-help-to-the-few-bloggers-who-actually-see-my-blog-posts-now-i-suspect-my-nawfalartphotography-blog-is-totally-shadow-banned-so-what-kind-of-anti-freedom-of-speech-out/ ), and ask them to HIT THE LIKE BUTTON — That’s all you have to do. They don’t even have to like the post, or me, but the ONLY way I will have some idea of what is going on is if the LIKE button is hit by a bunch of random bloggers I’ve never seen before, thus creating a sudden spike in Views and Likes in my Stats — You Get My Point?

Here’s how I would know for certain I’m being Shadow Banned using this technique: IF I suddenly get 200% or 500% More LIKES ON THIS POST by RANDOM BLOGGERS I’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE, then I know these people were sent to my post specifically by you! I will know the extra traffic was not from natural WordPress search results, or from my subscribers naturally seeing my posts in the Reader. That is my theory. This will NOT work without your Help. Thus, thank you if you can do this — who knows when WordPress may Not like something you post, and does the same to you, and then, you may also need help, right.

If any of you can Help with this, and I get some Unusual Stats Spike Results, I will share some outcomes with you in the next post, but I need something to work with.

Note 1: After doing the first art photo, I said to myself, “I’m seeing some faces from Brust’s novel in this image, and I need to investigate, and work this out further to see what develops.”

Note 2: One very interesting aspect of Brust’s story is that all of the angels were essentially good until a conflict and deception arose among the angels. On top of that, the three “evil” angels in the story ( evil according to many ‘modernised’ views…modern being several thousand years for Satan/Lucifer/Devil, and hundreds for Mephisto ) — Satan and Lucifer are the same entity, and Mephistopheles is the name invented for the historical Johann Georg Faust (c. 1480–c. 1540), and in demonology, Mephistopheles was “one of the seven chief devils and the tempter of Faust”. Nevertheless, in Brust’s story, Satan and Lucifer are “First-Borns”, and Mephistopheles is an archangel, not of the devils or demons, but he is Fallen.

Note 3: My Brust angels are a contradiction because they are made of fire. Angels, “fallen” or not, made of fire, I think is a contradiction.

Note 4: Sammael is a fallen archangel, and the Lord of Destruction. Some think this was Lucifer’s original name. The Jews think he is the archangel of the AMALEKITES (Gentiles) — Fine. Bring IT!

MENTAL NOTE #127, TODAY I GOT AN EXCELLENT SUNTAN !

MENTAL NOTE #127: TODAY I GOT AN EXCELLENT SUNTAN! THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF LIVING IN THE TROPICAL ZONE.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all Tea and Strippers in the Tropics. You have VERY HOT & HUMID weather most of the year; and then, you have about three months of cloudy and rainy Monsoon Season Storms.

But I do feel a bit sorry for all my fellow Nebraskans who got about 17 or 18 inches of snow the other day — It’s gotta suck to be there right now.

SERIES: NINE RED SCABBARDS ( 赤鞘九人男 ). Romanized: Akazaya Kunin Otoko, or, simply, “Akazaya Nine”.
YEAR: 2020 – 2021 (Completed).

—————
DESCRIPTION:

The “Nine Red Scabbards” Abstract Light Streaks Photography Series, is, of course, a nine piece series depicting the Samurai and Ninja Retainers of Kozuki Oden, of the country of Wano, in the One Piece (Manga / Anime) World.
“Kozuki Oden was the daimyo of Kuri in Wano Country and the son of the former shogun Kozuki Sukiyaki, being a member of the Kozuki Family. He was the husband of Kozuki Toki and the father of Momonosuke and Hiyori. Additionally, he was the leader of a group of legendary and powerful samurai known as the Nine Red Scabbards, with all of them serving as his retainers and most trusted allies.”
Oden was also formerly the 2nd Division Commander of the White Beard Pirates.
When Oden returned to Wano, he was captured, and executed by his nemesis, Lord Orochi, and the Yonko, Kaido.
There was one traitor (double-agent) among the original Nine Red Scabbards, Kanjuro, [who] “later confronted his former comrades with an army at Onigashima’s back entrance. After mocking them and explaining Momonosuke’s escape attempt and how his execution was taking place, Kanjuro clashed with Kikunojo. He was then defeated [by Kikunojo] and left bleeding on the ground, and Kin’emon solemnly dropped his hat upon him in passing.”

Therefore, the traitor, Kanjuro, is not in this series—No Traitors Allowed! In his place is an honorary Scabbard, Izo.

MENTAL NOTE #125, FREEDOM

MENTAL NOTE #125: FREEDOM — “Every thought should be uttered freely, fearlessly…”

I have been very troubled with the current and horrendous change in my country’s political environment, where a complete silence of Free Speech is in the process — that is — Free Speech will be silenced for ALL PEOPLE who oppose tyranny, and oppose the destruction of their country, to a new leader who loves his ‘Great New Reset’. T r u m p did nothing to stop this from happening; but under a Beiijing-Biiden admin, it is going to be worse, and you will see that unfold for yourself, very, very, soon.

Once again, I must turn our attention to the Sage, and the Great Master Painter, Robert Henri:

“It is better that every thought should be uttered freely, fearlessly, than that any great thought should be denied utterance for fear of evil. It is only through complete independence that all goodness can be spoken, that all purity can be found. Even indecency is bred of restriction not of freedom, for how can the spirit which controls the ethical side of life be trusted except through the poise that is gained by exercise? When we think honestly, we never desire individuals bound hand and foot, and the ethical side of man’s nature we cannot picture as overwhelmed and smothered with regulations if we are to have a permanent human goodness; for restrictions hide vice, and freedom alone bears morality.”

Henri, R., & Ryerson, M. (1958). The art spirit, by Robert Henri: notes, articles, fragments of letters and talks to students, bearing on the concept and technique of picture making, the study of art generally, and on appreciation, compiled by Margery Ryerson. J.B. Lippincott.

MENTAL NOTE #123, LOL, TWITTER SO CONCERNED OVER CENSORSHIP IN UGANDAN ELECTIONS, MEANWHILE, BEARDMAN-BAD CENSORS 10’S OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN AMERICA FOR HAVING DIFFERENT POLITICAL BELIEFS, INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT’S ACCOUNTS, WELCOME TO ULTRA-CLOWNWORLD!

This is just Too Pathetic:

MENTAL NOTE #123, LOL, TWITTER SO CONCERNED OVER CENSORSHIP IN UGANDAN ELECTIONS, MEANWHILE, BEARDMAN-BAD CENSORS 10’S OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN AMERICA FOR HAVING DIFFERENT POLITICAL BELIEFS, INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT’S ACCOUNTS, WELCOME TO ULTRA-CLOWNWORLD!

Oh my! CLOWN-WORLD 2021! Are the Fascist Technocrat Oligarchs so delusional as to think we all forgot that they just purged 10’S of Thousands of ‘Wrong-Think’ individuals from their very own platforms?!? And then, they, Beardman in this case, comes out with his soapbox screaming that censorship is heinous in an ‘Open-and-Freedom-Loving-Internet’, Honk-Honk!

IT IS LIKE THE BIG-TECH GIANTS, LIKE ZUCKERBORG, BEARDMAN DORSEY, BALDY-BOY BEZOS, WONKY-MAD FASCOJENSKY, and a Few Others, HAVE TAKEN OVER THE ROLE OF THE ‘STATE’ OF MUSSOLINI’S FASCISM, TO CONTROL & DECIDE “WHAT IS SAFE” (ACCORDING TO THEM), IN THE FORM OF MASS POPULATION CONTROL, AND USING BLATANT CENSORSHIP TO DO IT!

KEEPING THE ‘DUMB MASSES SAFE’ Seems TO COME STRAIGHT FROM THE MUSSOLINI PLAYBOOK:

“PERSONAL SAFETY of the Citizens”….”PEACEFUL conditions of life”, LMAO, Mussolini was also a Comedian! History is coming back to haunt us! However now, the hybrid BIG-TECH Oligarchs who Act Like the Government, have more power than any government! BUT DON’T WORRY: BIG-TECH IS CENSORING AND DISAPPEARING AND DOXING PEOPLE BECAUSE they have your Personal Safety, and a want for a Peaceful Society, in their hearts, AS THEY FOMENT DIVISION, HATE, FAVOURITISM, AND HAVE TAKEN CONTROL OF THE LIBERTIES THEY THINK YOU CAN AND CAN’T HAVE — But it’s because they love you.

MENTAL NOTE #122, HOW SAFE DO YOU THINK YOUR BLOG IS ON WORDPRESS, FROM FASCIST CENSORSHIP OR COMPLETE CANCELLATION? Please Answer my Blog Poll, and Let Your Readers know about my Poll, I think We ALL need to Be Somewhat Concerned About Our 1st Amendment Rights at this Point in History (or Whatever Guarantees You may have for Free Speech in Your Country)

I’ve Never embedded a Poll before or used CrowdSignal, so, I hope this Works.
