Meeting, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's wrestling with the notion of strengthening his enormous Fiction Corpus with further examples of fiction; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't question the practicality of using English as a universal language. I don't accept the formalistic routine with which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Beefing up a person's mastery of a language isn't like launching a stronger rope. A language - a common language - isn't merely a tool that you can learn to employ with greater amounts of precision. A common tongue can not be pulled from the philosophical currents of a clan of people 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.

Teaching students to recite English is to cheat them out of its cultural context. A worthy instructor must have a blueprint for introducing it; the insightful student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define words on the basis of a specific corpus, a body of writing of various scope and consistency. A corpus could contain everything from a book about literature to a whole collection of top fiction novels. I burnt many candles creating my "extraordinary" Fiction Corpus in order to form a precise type 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 framed a million words and I have tabulated them, reformulating them - not simply to teach English vocabulary but to defend the human spirit, and to coax that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Religious Abuse With ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

When I arrived in Europe on the 20th of June, 2011, I had no plan and certainly no idea that by the end of the week I would be practicing photography with a woman I had never met, a naturist who had never before allowed herself to be photographed nude. It was the first of a whole series of firsts for the both of us.

Though as an artist I had been working on body acceptance since the start of my career, and as a one-time practicing figure model was used to being nude in a social setting, I had been left largely unexposed to the community of naturists and nudists working towards the same goal of promoting the human being. Visiting nude beaches and resorts along the East Coast and participating in events organized around New York by Young Naturists America, I was left hungry for more and had come to Europe to see things from their side of the pond. Margo was my introduction.

I was American. Freshly arrived in Europe and the new owner of a '97 Ford Escort made in Germany. The only thing I had to complain about was the fact that the owner's manual was in German. She was from Poland, and a German-language owner's manual for a car bought in Poland wasn't the only thing she had to complain about. Something as small as that didn't even register.

There were times during our trip when I thought there might not be a happy ending. There were times when disaster was close and I wondered whether I hadn't made a mistake. I wondered whether fear, anger or sadness might triumph and one of us would have to finished the journey alone. Though I dangled from the cliffs of Normady I was saved. Though the lights went out I rode on. Though I ran the tires down to the wire I was okay. We drove home in one piece. We came home happy. We had started the process of learning how to listen and the sound of it was beautiful. We could be sure that we were ready to conquer the devils that abuse us no matter how long it would take.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Meeting

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 meeting in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word meeting, 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 meeting is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Definition of MeetingMargo on a trampoline

The word meeting usually refers to the instance, especially planned, of two or more people gathering within eyesight of each other and communicating but it doesn't have to be people and you don't actually have to be gathered in the same place. It can also refer to the ongoing act or, more often, the ongoing expectation of such a communication.

Usage of Meeting 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.

"After he put the money away. Like I said, they were both pretty calm during that whole bit - except that Panzer-Tank was always shaking his hands around very emphatically, from the time the meeting started. But when Krupnik put the money away, that's when he began pointing fingers, and, after that, the situation just exploded. Seems like both of them had reason to be mad."

Verse 843 from the chapter called Security

In those days, there was a brief craze for communal flagellation. Flagellant processions were commonplace in the town of Treblinka for about five weeks. They began after a certain Jesuit from Italy came to speak at St. Hedwig's. During a strange and mostly tedious homily, which was barely being translated by the pastor, this Jesuit stripped himself naked (down to the waist), threw himself onto the tomb of Henry II (the Bearded), grabbed onto his scourge (which came out from nowhere) and started beating himself. There was silence but for the sounds of his whip. Blood was everywhere. "It was incredible," said the fortunate ones who saw it. "He kept doing it: right through the Eucharist. He didn't stop until every last person was done." After the Mass, people who prostrated themselves in front of the altar were beaten by the Jesuit. They were instructed in the mystic ways of flagellation. Everyone present was welcomed. There was a long, organizational meeting held in the presbytery, and the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament was formed.

Verse 430 from the chapter called Adolescence

For generations before that tragic explosion (and the other one that followed it), the use of fossil fuels on Earth had been, generally speaking, limited. Subject to strict regulation and prohibitive taxation, most of it had gone to the planet Mars, the cost of transport being cheaper for oil than for any other potential source of energy, and, thanks to general tax relief and subsidies for processes like coal liquefaction, this export of fossil fuels was actively encouraged. When Yellowstone exploded, this trend was immediately reversed: export was discouraged while taxation and restrictions for consumption on Earth were quickly repealed. This move was meant to help the unfortunate ones who either needed a fast and easy source of energy or heat or else required the speed and mobility that oil and gas fueled internal-combustion engines offered. These people were not just Americans; they lived all across the globe - a globe now darkened by layers upon layers of atmospheric haze that made large photovoltaic power systems, based upon thousands of silicon and gallium arsenide solar cells, incapable of meeting the urgent energy needs of a suffering planet. Fossil fuel consumption was allowed to grow despite the knowledge that fossil fuel emissions would only make the Earth's atmosphere even more unclean.

Verse 6 from the chapter called Security

"These photographs," continued Stalin, "taken during the same meeting, show the two of them having an argument. If you watch the video, you can see how angry the two of them got. Now, the meeting lasted almost twenty minutes, and, aside from the money counting part, they were pretty much arguing the whole time."

"Who started it?"

Verses 839-840 from the chapter called Security

As for Leonard Cohen-Krupnik, his only mistake had been meeting with the former Russian spy. In the end, perhaps the procurators would've caught up with him too - maybe not. After all, he had been the richest man in Poland. There was no telling what that meant.

LUKA: Ah, very good. But you live in London, yes?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 2, Introducing Male Friends, Paragraphs 2-5

Mary for evening Mass. And so, with a 'Hey, ho!' and 'How resourceful!' off we went skipping across the square. My energy did not last however, and began to fail me sometime around the profession of faith, which I have enough trouble stumbling through without the lightness of head, or the German language for that matter. As you can imagine, when I wasn't sitting I was swaying, and by the prayers of the faithful my mind, still being rather airy, was having trouble reconciling the heaviness of my skull; my neck too had trouble coping, so that for every prayer I was, quite appropriately, hanging my head, but had to muster all my strength for the action of lifting it, which would send it catapulting back, not straight above my shoulders but quite behind them, at which point I would begin mouthing what I believed was the proper response, which, having gratefully ended, would promptly send my head bouncing back to its original position of blissful rest.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 4, Meeting a Man in Austria, Paragraph 1, Clauses 3-7

I asked her to bring this up casually in conversation, so that I could elaborate on the compliment, ever so innocently - but she was afraid to do it, owing to her quality of English, which was still not very good; but she agreed and after a bit of rehearsal we met with Macy on the weekend. Once we were settled down at a certain restaurant, I learned that Macy was from Boston, that he was acquainted with you, having met you our freshman year, and that he was here in Austria for the summer for no other reason but that he wanted some culture - that, and the fact that his parents had met here in Vienna in nineteen seventy-two and had fallen madly in love.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 4, Meeting a Man in Austria, Paragraph 3

Four years ago (you shall remember) I was in Austria (the beloved Österreich! may she grow in peace!) visiting our mother's cousin, whose daughter was able to provide me with an almost constant companionship. One Sunday, we went drinking in a rather nice section of Vienna, one which I had not frequently visited, and to which we had come with the purpose of sight-seeing, only to be swayed from our plan by the coming dusk, and by a flyer we picked up advertising a particularly rewarding drink special.

Gog thanked them for their concern. He assured them he had already killed one serpent daughter of Gandaruba. "If Azi Dahaka has sons," said Gog, "I will arrange a meeting for them with Skin Smoother."

By the time Captain Orbitz returned to Alliance headquarters in the Solar System two things had happened. First his DNA was found at a raided underground Wiki-en meeting place on Mars. Second and more importantly the longest-serving courier in Alliance history with a record 32 trips across branes was officially declared lost. He entered a singularity in the Cygnus Arm and two hundred fifty milliarc-seconds later his ship's quantum entangler had yet to respond. There were no sightings of him at any manned transit points in either Alliance or Alliance-friendly territory. No wreckage was found. The man like so many interstellar travelers before him had simply vanished into the two-dimensional fracas known as inter-brane space. This made Orbitz not technically the oldest man in the Orion Arm but its first born citizen. His long dead mother had given birth to him thousands of years ago. It made him a celebrity.

Orbitz sputtered his way along the headmast. He spotted his ship, the Argo, lying just beyond the outermost sails. He brought the body onboard. He didn't have much time to hide it. Sara Lee was already approaching from the north. By the time Orbitz shut the hatch to the maintenance module she was already buzzing the airlock. Orbitz let her onboard. "Why are we meeting here?" she asked. "I thought we were going to the Nautilus."

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.
