With any grace, the above photograph and caption – which I found on Facebook – will be the perfect summary of my life as I portray it on this blog. (Wikipedia’s article on the Japanese aesthetic philosophy itself is well worth reading.)

PENTOMINOS

John Wheeler (Johanan Rakkav):

A few short thoughts this morning…

N.B.: The following is a work of speculative fiction, and like any such work, it can go only so far in teaching literal truth. Please see the Author’s Note for further details.

Let’s call my chosen “home planet” Ge (Greek: “Earth”) and its single natural moon, Selene (Greek: “Moon”). In the Metalanguage, of course, they have much more descriptive names. Later on, I’ll tell you of the capital city I’ve established, which I’ll call Geopolis.

Visitors to the Ring of Stars and to Ge/Selene often ask why I use twelve geometric figures called pentominos so extensively in my decorating. After all, there are countless other geometric designs – including the endlessly fascinating fractals – which I could use. Yes, I do use other designs – again including fractals – from time to time. But I use pentominos the most extensively and the most consistently, whether in tiling…

THE RING OF STARS

John Wheeler (Johanan Rakkav):

Two chapters in one day, after days of thought… not bad.

Let’s talk round numbers for a moment. When I lived as a mortal, already some 100 billion human beings allegedly had lived and died. By that time, humanity had become aware of at least 100 billion galaxies in the “visible universe”. On average—again, estimates by different scientists varied at different times—each galaxy had at least 100 billion stars in it, and at least as many planets as well. I could look up the exact figures of those estimates at whatever time you wanted to investigate, but that really isn’t necessary for my purpose here. Nor are the true figures I could give you directly from the Mind of God—besides, that information is “classified” outside of God’s Family and the angelic host.

Many other humans, of course, were born after Jesus Christ’s return. Not everyone who lived during the Millennium, or everyone granted their…

THE PORTAL OF LIGHT

John Wheeler (Johanan Rakkav):

And now, at last, a genuinely new beginning in my storytelling… (הללויה)!

Originally posted on Starbright:

Epiphany (Jonathon Earl Bowser)Epiphany (Jonathon Earl Bowser)

As a mortal, I was named Chris Alain Ralston. My story really ought to start there.

My father liked the name Christopher; my mother liked the name Alain. She liked the variant Scottish spelling, but she always pronounced it like “Alan” in English. I was named after the author of a famous series of children’s books and his son: Alan Alexander Milne and Christopher Robin Milne. True to form, A.A.’s fictional character Christopher Robin was my childhood hero. But in everyday life, my parents and all my friends always called me Chris Alain.

I have been called many other names in many other Realms: Kit Foxfire, Jack Saxon, Jack Shepherd, Jean Chevalier, and Stephen Martyr, among others. The best-known of these included a name and a title: Alain Harper the Undying Singer.

But in the Real World, when Jesus Christ returned to Earth and we saints…

“PARODY MOTIVATIONAL POSTER”: GARFIELD AND COMPUTERS

Parody Motivational Poster: Garfield and Mr. Chainsaw

Parody Motivational Poster: Garfield and Mr. Chainsaw

2015-07-30 @ 07:43 CDT

Paws, Inc. has an ambivalent attitude, it seems, about its graphics. On the one hand, we have Garfield memes like this floating around the Internet, as this was found on Facebook before I put it into a poster. Presumably they were made and promoted by Paws, Inc. in the first place. On the other hand, the last time I put a Garfield graphic from the Internet into Photobucket, it got erased by Paws, Inc. as in violation of copyright. Guys, guys, what do you WANT?!

So this time, I won’t share this poster I made on Photobucket. But it’s too good not to share here. Enjoy!

“PARODY MOTIVATIONAL POSTERS” ON PERSONALITY TYPE: 2015-07-27

Just so these posters get into a more public view…

I found (either by myself or with the help of my INFJ lady friend) three very apt photos these past two days, and I thought they would make great “parody motivational posters”. The captions took no little thought. I like the artwork in the INFJ poster so much that I may write a story based on it…

DON’T UNDERESTIMATE ENFPS OR ENTPS, EVER

John Wheeler (Johanan Rakkav):

A kind of counterblast to all those “parody motivational / demotivational posters” out there which picture ENFPs as sensitive crybabies and/or flakes…

On Google Images, there are all kinds of posters showing INFJs as deep, complex, and sometimes very dangerous people. What does one find about ENFPs? Not nearly so many, and most of them picture us as flakes. (Some of those, I’ve actually contributed to the mix.)

Today, with the help of ENFP Qui-Gon Jinn from STAR WARS, I bring out the other side of ENFP-dom: the side that can bring logical discipline and emotional control to bear on our natural strengths in compassion and purity of heart. And I really do mean the caption here. Pushing an ENFP (or an ENTP) to the wall – if he has the physical or other capacity to act against you – is not a good idea.

One reason is that the ENFP/ENTP way of dealing with the here and the now (Extraverted…
