Books, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's thinking over the notion of strengthening his cavernous Fiction Corpus with a history of historical fiction books; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I believe in the soundness of exercising English as humanity's second language. I do doubt the enervatingly inanimate modus operandi by which the English language is taught.Pointer

Upgrading one's adroitness with a language isn't like bringing about a brighter bead. A language - a common language - isn't just a tool that you can learn to manipulate with a greater amount of precision. A living tongue can not be dissociated from the competing values of a group 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.

To make people recite English is to cheat them out of its cultural context. An informed teacher must prepare a plan for introducing it; the wisest pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe a language based on a specific corpus, a body of writing of varying size and consistency. Such a corpus might include everything from a book about literature to some truly brilliant literature novels. I lost many a night laboring on 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 myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have molded a million words and I have enumerated them, reshaping them - not merely to teach a language but to defend the human soul, and to coax that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Political 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

On Monday, I arrived in Europe. By Wednesday I had bought a car. By Friday I had met the woman who a few months later would end up having travelling 6,000 miles across Europe with me.

I knew naturism was popular in many parts of Europe and as an artist who had worked on body acceptance for his entire career I was keen on documenting some small part of it. Lo and behold, I found a very important part of it hiding in Poland. Her name was Margo.

As an American, I was full of optimism and confidence bordering on recklessness. I was ready to run the wheels off the car I had just bought and eventually I would. As a European, she was cautious and mistrustful. She needed to make sure the air conditioner worked. Which it did. If you knew how to turn the broken knob in just the right way.

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 Books

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 books in some kind of way.

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

Definition of BooksMargo on a trampoline

The word books is fetishized to mean not just more than one book but the fact that reading and considering the aesthetic value of more than one book is not just beneficial but essential for a culture to consider itself civilized, even though more than one culture in history and in the present day has relied and continues to rely entirely on one book.

Usage of Books 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.

My dear child, if you ever walk by a dirty, old man talking to himself and selling his own books, and you wonder how this man came to be like this, now you'll know at least one way.

Verse 73 from the chapter called Adolescence

"You call my father great. Was he great when he failed? when he gained his infamy for the sacrifice he had my mother make? Was that not greatness? You look back nowadays and you say 'See: this man was there in the beginning; if not for him, none of this progress would've taken place' - but you reviled him then. You laughed at him for losing everything he had: first his wife, then his fortune, then his health - but you weren't even around by then. You didn't care anymore. You didn't mind if he sold his books in the street. You ignored him. And thank you very much: he deserved it. He deserved to die in ignominy for what he did. But if you've decided to call my father great once again, remember what that greatness cost: my mother's life.

Verse 195 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

Jesus's father didn't care. Your grandfather's fifteen minutes of infamy were long gone; only the dark memory of his gross negligence must have occasionally crossed his mind. What sort of grief plagued him? Was he sorry for killing his wife? or was he sorry that his wife had to die? What was he concerned about? Was he concerned about himself? Was he worried about his own moral integrity? Did he wonder why? Why did he do it? Was it worth it? The sacrifice? Was he conscious of the world's ingratitude? Or did he merely miss her? Did he merely miss his wife? Was it possible that he loved her? What was he thinking? Did he want to become like her? Was that his penance? To lie in bed? choking his veins with heroin? To sell his books for heroin? To lie in sleepfulness and regret? letting everything fall apart? waiting for death? To forget? What was he trying to do? Nothing? Was he that tired? like his wife had been? Had he nothing left to live for? Didn't he care about his son? Did he feel that helpless? Finished? What made him disintegrate? What strange force robbed him of his will to life?

Verse 65 from the chapter called Adolescence

He sold his books at market, which, at first, was down by the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul. Day after day, but especially on Thursdays, the local fruit and vegetable farmers would sell their produce. There were clothes and odds and ends, but your grandfather was the only one selling books. Few people were buying. At least your grandfather gained a reputation for knowing his books. Within two years, every kind of book which the average kind of person would buy had been sold; afterwards, it was a matter of waiting for the random law student to come and buy a mother lode. With a sale like that, your grandfather had enough heroin for months; he would disappear into his room and not be seen for days.

Usage of Books 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.

A few blocks down, in the dignified houses of Pall Mall, they have also been welcomed, however reluctantly, and in the smallest numbers perhaps, but they have been suffered to enter those rooms, if only as temporary guests, by the many "exclusive gentlemen's clubs that extend along that distinguished avenue," which I had the opportunity to visit not so long ago.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 11, Guidebooks, Paragraph 5, Clause 1

But the building soon proved to be an embarrassment to John Nash, who was forced off the project in his tender years, and was even subjected to an official inquiry, as not only the cost, but the structural soundness of the building was called into question. Well, it's a good thing that Mr. Nash did not survive to hear the end of it, because several years later it was discovered, and I can only imagine under what horribly embarrassing circumstances, that the Marble Arch, which Mr. Nash so kindly designed for the main entrance, was too narrow to allow the grandest coaches to pass.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 11, Guidebooks, Paragraph 1, Clauses 3-7

ANDY: I had to rethink everything. Before, I was going to write two books: I mean 'books' as in 'parts'. But then, of course, I had stop, and, as I kept thinking about it, I realized I wanted to do some more things with it. So now the whole thing is going to be in five books.

CHR: Five books?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 2, Prayer & The Reformation, Section 10, Bringing Up a Sore Subject, Paragraphs 6-7

He will enter his library, look at his books, organized by subject and then by date of publication, and then he will find the oldest ones missing. He will wonder what has become of them. He will wonder whether he ever had them at all. He will climb up into the attic, thinking he is looking for something, but he will not find anything of worth. If it be winter when he does this, it will be too cold to stay there searching. And if it be summer, it will be too hot.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 1, Cancer, Paragraph 1, Clauses 2-8

I wish you had taken this guidebook with you; it's full of fascinating information. I don't suppose you've heard the aphorism: it's easier for a grand coach to pass through the Arch of Marble, than it is for a poor man to get into Annabel's nightclub. Of course you haven't: I just made it up; according to the guidebook, you would have to pay five hundred pounds a year to get on the members list at Annabel's. But don't bother: I'm sure it's the most artificially hip club in London. I believe they play mostly eighties music; you'd have to be willing to dance with Margaret Thatcher if you want to go there. However, it's one of Jeffrey Archer's favorite places; maybe if you stand outside the door you'll get to meet him. Alright: I don't want to make you vomit: I'll stop teasing you.

Censorship says everything...as should modern wall art

It's natural to hide dirty things. They're embarrassing. But we need to keep in mind that when we hide things that are difficult, we make them seem dirty when they're really something else entirely. And when we keep things that are easy in plain sight, we make them seem clean when they really aren't. That is dangerous.
