Things, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal declines to weigh the notion of extending his walloping Fiction Corpus with a history of the art festival; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I regard highly the feasibility of legislating English as a universal standard. I do challenge the dullish modus operandi by which English is taught.Pointer

Upgrading a person's expertise with a language isn't like introducing a more incorruptible banknote. A language - a common tongue - isn't merely an instrument that you can teach yourself to manipulate with greater amounts of precision. A common tongue can't be unyoked from the professed knowledge of a society of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

To make a pupil recite English is to cheat him out of its cultural context. A capable educator must develop a plan for introducing it; the insightful pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define a language based on a specific corpus, a set of writing of various scope and consistency. This corpus could contain anything from a book about literature to a bunch of free fiction. I burnt many candles developing my "superb" Fiction Corpus in order to form a unique sort of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in many different forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have assembled a million words and I have tabulated them, reformulating them - not merely to teach an American language but to describe the human soul, and to coax that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Things

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word things in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word things, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word things is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Things in The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

Any Capitalist interested in forming a SECURITA franchise was subject to a strict vetting process. The board of directors was ultimately in charge of deciding who could and who could not operate under their famous logo, but, after granting a license to a certain entrepreneur to operate a franchise, they were necessarily restricted by the negotiated stipulations of the contract. Since Jesus desired to remain as anonymous as possible, Stalin was chosen for the job: as soon as Stalin secured the most advantageous contract possible and a license to operate a separate franchise in and around Wroclaw, Stalin would hire Jesus as a foreign consultant. Next to warrants, work permits were the easiest things for SECURITA personnel to get.

The problem was securing a contract.

Verses 30-31 from the chapter called Security

When the press began to say that Jesus's Confederation was based on Cathedral Island, Jesus did nothing to dispute it. The error was built on already existing confusion; Jesus didn't need to add to it. Besides, anyone who cared knew that Jesus had blocked off Sand Island, not the territory around the Cathedral. Nevertheless, the error stood. Your father liked to indulge it. Using a sawed-off bed-knob as a mace, Jesus wielded it the way field commanders of the Old Republic had once deployed their troops: by swinging it forward, left and right, always with a firm flick of the wrist, like the parish priest or bishop who blesses his congregation with holy water. Jesus used it whenever his officers met with him to discuss further operations. Inside the sacristy of the Blessed Virgin Mary's church, they would come to look at their biggest map, which had all of their troop positions marked. They kept it locked in a cupboard with other sensitive information, and, when they met, Jesus used his mace to point things out; he would bang the table with it. Jesus's men soon began to call him 'Bishop.' Your father had chosen the mace for its ancient distinction (Jesus felt like the primeval warrior), but the truth was (as Jesus seemed to remember it from his father's books) that the mace had indeed been carried into battle by medieval bishops, who had been barred from the use of swords for some ecclesiastical reason. Anyway, the name was apt. Jesus became the Bishop of Cathedral Island, leader of Confederate troops fighting for truth. Your father embraced his new surname, particularly because it captured his spiritual leadership, which he consciously, though somewhat erratically, pursued. The word was ancient. Most importantly of all, it punctuated his separate identity, the superiority of his office, the remoteness of his character, and, most unnervingly of all, Jesus's growing detachment.

Verse 474 from the chapter called Arms

"It's one of those nineteenth-century things. You know: like a bicycle without pedals. The girl down the street has one. They're made of wood."

Verse 220 from the chapter called Adolescence

Those were the days when I first began hearing my voices. FUCK GOD! they said. FUCK JESUS CHRIST, BULLSHIT SON OF GOD! They said terrible things like that. FUCK JESUS CHRIST! they said. FUCK JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! I heard them in church during Mass. I HATE GOD! No, I don't! I HATE GOD! No, I don't hate God! HATE GOD! HATE GOD! HATE GOD! HATE GOD! No: fuck it! FUCK IT! FUCK IT! FUCK IT! FUCK IT! FUCK IT! FUCK IT! FUCK IT! HATE GOD! HATE GOD! HATE GOD! HATE GOD! Stop it! HATE GOD! HATE GOD! Fuck it, stop! JESUS CHRIST BULLSHIT! SON OF GOD BULLSHIT! FUCK IT JESUS CHRIST BULLSHIT! GOD MOTHERFUCKING BULLSHIT! I would crush the words and throw them out. I would tear them apart and stuff them inside a cannon. I would hold them there inside that cannon for as long as possible, but they were strong. They would push themselves out. Before they did, I would have to run to the other side and light the cannon, shooting those despicable voices out of my head - BOOM! - usually they would land about ten feet away. Then they'd crawl back. They were demons. FUCK GOD! they said. FUCK JESUS CHRIST! FUCK JESUS CHRIST! FUCK JESUS CHRIST! FUCK JESUS CHRIST! FUCK JESUS CHRIST! Stop it motherfucker! FUCK JESUS! FUCK JESUS! FUCK JESUS! FUCK JESUS! FUCK JESUS! Stop it! I HATE JESUS! No, I don't hate Buddha - CHRIST! I HATE JESUS CHRIST! I HATE JESUS CHRIST! I HATE JESUS CHRIST! I HATE JESUS CHRIST! They were never-ending: these fucked-up voices. I would hit my own head against the wall, but nothing happened. Sometimes, they would last for hours - I drove my head against pillows; I shook my head; I would hit my own head, but nothing helped. My mind kept cursing God - no: it wasn't my mind; I knew my mind: these were voices. They were saying these things inside, but they were coming from outside. They were saying these terrible things. I wasn't saying them. I wasn't thinking them. I was hearing them. I knew that. I was positive. I was convinced: the devil was whispering in my ear.

Verse 237 from the chapter called Childhood

Usage of Things in Sex for Children

A drawing of a man between a woman's legs in front of another man in a hospital bed

A literature book narrated by a pair of siblings on either side of the Atlantic whose profoundly weird sexual experiences pose a serious challenge to their traditional understanding of mathematicians, marriage, gay young men and God.

My dear sister: I had a terrible dream last night. It started early - right after I finished writing to you - when I began tossing and turning - and lasted all through the night. The dream was a protracted one; many things took place but these things took longer than necessary. And I was aware of time being distorted. I saw how things - which otherwise take place in quick succession - were being strung together separately - like photographs developing - one by one dangling from the twine of unconsciousness - as if the events themselves were brief - captured in a single moment - but time itself was stretching and stretching till morning broke. And despite the light caressing my face, I awoke unhappily, knowing that I should not have gone to bed so feverish: that whole day yesterday was spent remembering those tantalizing things, those quietly torturous things you just read. I was reliving them, and if they weren't bad enough the first time, I was doing so by a dying man's bedside.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 1, Visiting London, Paragraph 1

But would he be happy, knowing that he had failed? Of course not. He had to keep looking. But what if he never found her? Would that be successful? No. Yes. No. Why would that be successful? Because he had tried? He would still be trying. He wouldn't stop until he found her. He had to find her. There was no other way. Finding her was the only solution to his problem, which was the fact that he was looking for her. There was no way to stop. Once he found her, he would figure things out. Then he would decide whether he wants her.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 1, Family & Welfare Reform, Section 2, Understanding Physical Desire, Paragraph 12

I saw the gentle light of the console. There was a radio, a clock, an air conditioning unit. These things pleased me. I thought, even if the doors on either side start to shake, even if by whatever cause they began to shudder and to rattle, bending to an unseen force - even if those doors, with their failing latches, their breaking iron, their twisting hinges, were to rip themselves open and expose me, I would not despair. I would not slip from my position. I would not be sucked into oblivion. I could ignore it with a smirk. I was free from fear - or so I thought, sitting quietly in that dream.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 19, Interpreting Religious Symbols, Paragraph 6

"You have not been honest," I said, and I proceeded to express my disgust for all that he had done, for all the ways he had let his feelings dictate his action. I said a lot of things, but I did not mention the pettiness he was performing at that very moment - not for his sake, but for my own: as I could not bring myself to mention that name: the name of the person he was now apparently cheating. I told him that I loved him, that I was very sorry, but no matter how much love I had to give, I was not a prize he could ever win: he did not qualify for the competition.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 7, Trying to Kiss, Paragraph 12

But once these things are grouped together, no criterion but taste is specific enough to distinguish between them; in this way, taste is subject to qualification. Do you see what I'm saying? You see, if one were judging an Olympic race, where time is measured by the millisecond, and we know that only one athlete will get the gold, one would still have to concede that each contestant is among the very best, and therefore equally capable of winning if circumstances permit. Unless of course, the race is run several times and there is always the same clear winner. But then that person belongs in a category of his own, sui generis, which, I suppose, might be construed to mean that he is the best, which also means that I am defeating my own argument.

It was Davis and Sammy D. They too had waited for everybody to leave. Seeing that the room was empty, they locked the door. They started doing naughty things. Dorothea peeped past the edge of the curtain. She couldn't believe it. The two women were doing it. She watched. She couldn't take her eyes away. She kept absolutely still.

Thirty minutes passed. The women started giggling again. Sammy D whispered, "It reminds me of the first time I made love."

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

KOKOMO: I listen to you. I know you're upset. Unless you can think clearly about what's at stake, you shouldn't commit to it.

FLETCHER: My judgment has been clouded. Your perceptiveness never ceases to amaze me. I only hope that someday soon I'll be worthy of your favor.

KOKOMO: Time can only strengthen our bond.

FLETCHER: I get impatient. I want certain things to happen now.

FLETCHER: We were just getting started. Mother hasn't even seen us doing it.

GREY GOOSE: It's been made perfectly clear to me that I'm not welcome.

FLETCHER: After all the effort we put into making her work - and the mess we left.

GREY GOOSE: It's a damn shame.

Usage of Things in Miscellaneous Dingbats

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

Some people think I'm a smarty-pants. It's not true. I'm the biggest idiot of all. I immigrated to America. I came willingly. I don't regret it. As bad as things are in this country they're even worse where I was born. A lot of Americans don't realize that. Whenever I hear snobs complaining about how things are I tell them to relax. Take a trip to Woodstock. By the time you get home you'll be grateful.

– from “Woodstock,” a life story based on reality as I remember it

Steve O was picked up at the airport. He was treated to dinner. He was taken to see the view from Mulholland Drive. He was having a blast. He insisted on taking Adam out to a nightclub. For gays. Adam didn't like it. The harder he tried to look like he was having fun, the more Steve O could tell things were uncomfortable. He offered to call it a night. Adam invited him to stay at his house. Steve O demurred. Adam chose not to insist. Steve O ended up at the hotel.

– from “A Finger Up The Bum,” a gay fiction story that should be taken lightly, but what you make of it is up to you

"She chose the deadest branch she could find," said Mother. "She's looking for an excuse to stay an old maid."

I denied it. I told her I didn't need an excuse.

Grandmother chimed in. She said, "It's only appropriate. If you want her to get married, it's going to take a miracle."

I remember that night. Only two things people tend never to forget. One is joy; the other, humiliation.

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that might ease one's fears depending on your outlook

Kelly picked up a stray cat to spite me. She knew I hated the things. I told her why I didn't want her to shave. A girl at the prison hid contraband in her bush. I had to hold her down while the doctor shaved it off. It was the one image I couldn't get out of my mind. I didn't want to think about it while I was making love. It was understandable.

– from “Two Years,” an adult fiction story about a correctional officer at a women's prison

The people are the ones who set me free. I don't care how you twist it. I didn't stir people up. My father didn't stir people up. He explained to them what happened. I did what I had to do. I wasn't about to be punished for something people just didn't understand. People didn't want to understand what happened. They've got more important things to worry about. But at least they listened. My father told them not to take his last child and they had mercy. For him. Not for me. They would've killed me.

Large Wall Art Depicting the Human Landscape

Life is a spinning sphere with Joy at one pole and Sadness at the other. Each continuously feeding its pair. Joy flanked by the emotions of Trust on one side, Surprise on the other. Trust leading to Anticipation; anticipation leading to Fear. Surprise leading to Disgust; disgust leading to Anger. Anger and Fear fueling our Sadness. Sadness giving way, in time, to Joy; through Hope, an orientation towards Love. Love, an openness towards Joy, Trust and Surprise; the sum of emotion; emotion amplified by others. Multiplied and divided, in equal parts. Such that to those from whom it has been subtracted, we must add. Until we are whole.
