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 #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!
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:
MENTAL NOTE #117: Yes — There are some simple tasks that EVERYONE, ALMOST, can do without even thinking about them; tasks you can do without working up a massive sweat, without experiencing massive pain, and without feeling massive discomfort and annoyance.
What am I talking about?
I’m talking about ‘Owning‘ the horrible arthritic disease, ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS, like I DO! I’ve had this damned painful disease for at least 39 Years! Imagine EVERYDAY PAIN! Yeah, that is what Ownership of Ankylosing Spondylitis is all about.
“Everything you do as an AS’er is typically affected by AS.”
ME, I said that!
I was painfully and annoyingly reminded of this fact today, as I struggled for at least FIVE MINUTES to get my socks on! Yes, SOCKS! The BANE of AS’ers WORLDWIDE! IF you own AS, you should know what I mean, right!
Because the AS’er’s spine is stiff and painful, most of the time; or, like me, having suffered a fractured spine (in two places), DUE TO COMPLICATIONS WITH AS + A TRAUMA, causing a need to go through a HORRENDOUS 10-hours long Spinal Fusion Surgery to keep my spinal cord from being ripped apart as my lumbar spine moved in two different directions, eventually making it so I could no longer walk — MY POINT IS THAT EVEN LESS THAN CRITICAL ACCIDENTS TO MOST PEOPLE, CAN CAUSE DISASTROUS INJURIES FOR AS’ERS.
Yeah, so, that’s only one FUN example of what some of us AS’ers have experienced in THEIR (OUR) OWNERSHIP of AS.
Therefore, the simple act of bending over to put one’s own socks on to dress, is an EXHAUSTING EXPERIENCE to say the least.
Sometimes, after I get my socks on, I feel so drained, I say to myself, “‘Fuuck’it!’ I’m too exhausted to go anywhere.” Nevertheless, it was such an effort to just get my socks on (properly no less, LOL), that it would be a waste NOT to go out. “I’ll teach them ‘Fuuck’en’ socks who they are dealing with!”
ME, I SAID THAT!
Anyway, EVIL SOCKS, the Bane of AS’ers throughout the Galaxy and BEYOND!
I was just thinking about the mysteries of the galaxy today, and the Struggles of Daily Life that many (if not all) AS’ers face. Simple tasks like putting on socks, are indeed, a ‘Pain in the AS(S)’, for AS’ers!
