Circumstances, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's wrestling with the practicality of boosting his outsized Fiction Corpus with a world literature book; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I have faith in the possibility of exploiting English as a worldwide lingua franca. I don't accept the uninspiring route by which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Fortifying a person's adroitness with a language isn't like pioneering a brighter lantern. A language - a living tongue - isn't just an instrument that you can teach yourself to wield with greater amounts of precision. A language can't be insulated from the prevailing culture of a recognized nation 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 a student to recite English is to cheat her out of its cultural context. A proper educator must find a method of introducing it; the smartest student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define words based on a specific corpus, a set of writing of varying scope and consistency. This corpus may include anything from a book about literature to a bunch of fantasy fiction. I watched many nights pass laboring on my "mighty" Fiction Corpus to form a new genre 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 classified them, reformulating them - not simply to teach an American language but to reveal the human spirit, and to pressure that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help Prevent Self-destructive behaviour 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.

I had come to Europe to document people practicing naturism. Preliminary arrangements had been made to meet with an Egyptian nudist visiting the Continent and there was some kind of Pan-European gathering scheduled to take place in Croatia. I had arranged for an assistant to come along with me to help with anything I needed, but when her passport was stolen the night before we were supposed to leave, my plans went awry. I decided on something less ambitious. I would visit a naturist sauna in the city of Bielsko-Biala, Poland which I had just found on the internet. When I got there, I met Margo.

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.

Each man grows up with his own kind of poverty. Even if he's got a warm house and plenty of food and a soft bed and plenty of entertainment, there's always something that a man needs. Sometimes he just needs to be listened to, if only by the birds and the trees, but preferably by another man, even if he's an artist from America who isn't very good at listening. By learning how to listen, we learn how to cooperate. By cooperating, we build a better world. In a better world, there are no devils to abuse us. A better world doesn't lend itself to abuse because a better world is populated by people who have learned how to listen.

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 Circumstances

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 circumstances in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Circumstances 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.

Generations upon generations afterward, man's children came forth from darkness by defying their fear of flame. Who first approached that smoldering trunk that the boom-flash had broken? Was it man? or woman? a child? How many times did it have to happen? Were the flames big or were they small? What drove that first man or woman or child? Was it heat? curiousity? fascination with the flame? or, perhaps, rebellion? insubordination? Was he an outcast? Was she a rebel? Was the child just stupid? Only in the afterlife shall we discover when and where and who and how many, how often, what circumstances allowed man to discover that fire was good, that fire was man's best friend. What cannot be denied is that fire became sacred. Only later - much later - did we take it for granted. In those days, it had to be passed down from one caretaker to the next.

Verse 2 from the chapter called Security

It was under these circumstances that the national government extended and modified substantially its contract with SECURITA. The security firm had been hired by the Ministry of Defense to supplement its border guard, which, when terrorists appeared in Germany, was deployed along Poland's western frontier by adding units withdrawn from the southwestern border shared with the Czech Republic. This move had been severely criticized and very much resented by most people not in charge of national security, but, considering that terrorists and terrorism were responsible (or, at least, held responsible) for just about everything that happened, there wasn't much that anyone could do to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that this new and startling development (which was the privatization of national defense) was not necessary or, at least, justified. Private security firms had always been popular among the elite - why shouldn't national governments be able to take advantage of their highly trained professionals? especially since these were difficult times - made even more difficult by coal trafficking.

Verse 26 from the chapter called Security

"Watch yourself," I whispered. "Be careful with this one. She is good; she is honest, but years of neglect have done their work. She wants to be free; she wants to be honest, but lies have undercut her self-confidence. She mistakenly believes herself to be ugly and unwanted. These lies formed many years ago, when she first lost hope. She needs to feel - and be convinced - that she is wanted, that she is beautiful, but these things won't come easily: she will resist. She will mistrust the truth, and, as long as she remains a prisoner of lies, she cannot be, under any circumstances, fully trusted. She is like a child. Treat her like you would a child. Be gentle and forgiving, and never let her out of your sight."

Verse 267 from the chapter called Security

From my seat in the middle of the booth, my view was unobstructed. I was gazing upon divine grace: the ultimate of mortal gifts - penultimate Gift! purest Womanhood! I was looking at Man's consternation, his pride, his instrument in Man's quest to be like God: to create! to love! to hold! But I did not yet know it. I was blinded by honor's undignified lust for vengeance. I sought my own brand of justice in that choked and choking room of self-conscious amusement, otioseness, and strife. I wanted to conquer, my child, not love. I looked upon that lovely figure with calculated intentions. I did not see her loveliness; I ignored her life, her needs, her desires, her hopes and dreams - they were unimportant. I saw myself and my own needs only, no matter what I claimed or thought I felt. I was not unimpaired; I was drunk: impatient: rushed by my own winds - not what I considered - and seriously so - to be the winds of destiny. Those were only breezes, unpredictable movements of air: the erratic impulses produced by circumstances in the landscape; they were not to be trusted. They were only whisperings - and if destiny had anything to do with them, they were only destiny's advances: wafting forward ideas and intimations, proposals, and the probability of misapprehension.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 8, Affording Private Health Care, Paragraphs 1-7

I have to tell you something, A. Jo Ann. It's been bothering me for a long time: something Albert said to me - something superficially harmless, but which, under the circumstances, might have a deeper meaning. I can't be sure. I've been dwelling on it for a week.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 4, The Fourth Day, Part 2, The Assembly & Government Reform, Section 5, The Power of Words, Paragraph 1

Oh my dear sister: if you are reading this, you already know under what circumstances this document must be written. I know that I will have called you, and you will most certainly have asked me what I've been doing, and I will undoubtedly have told you by the time you receive this letter that Albert is dying - but I have not yet told you, though I feel as if I were talking to you right now, and I must explain everything to you as if you were this paper, as if it were part of your body, the excess of your skin, temporarily grafted onto this cheap writing surface so that my pen, the natural extension of my steady hand, could make its furtive inscriptions, gently massaging your senses, while I prepare to hurt you, to harm your gentle skin, to break your heart by incising the horrible truth of my situation.

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

I didn't believe her one bit. And I also started arguing that Advent begins on St. Andrew's Day, not on St. Catherine's. Grandmother was not perturbed: first, she corrected me by saying that Advent officially begins on the Sunday closest to St. Andrew's, and then she went right back to her story-telling by mentioning that St. Andrew's was the preferred occasion for maidens to work their magic. Well before midnight, a girl could make several attempts at augury: she could, for example, pray while sweeping the floor with a new broom; she could step on a piece of silver in her room; and my absolute favorite: she could look up a chimney naked. By whatever method she chose, if she were successful, she would see her future husband. For a long time, I had no idea what such a vision would look like, until I tried it myself - but more about that later (in the meantime, see if you can guess where it was, and under what circumstances).

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 20, The Role Of Religion, Paragraph 8

His most recent visit has confirmed my opinion: Nike is a slave to his own comfort - and his bonds are such, and his potential freedom of such an unreasonable nature, that Reason cannot help him: for Nike is also a slave to Reason, and comfort is very reasonable. Naturally, I would otherwise praise his analytical devotion, but in these circumstances, I must accept that his mind and his body, that the appetite and reason are conspiring against his soul.

Patsy asked Juanita if he could test out his theory on her. She agreed. Dressed in a skirt for what seemed, at least to Patsy, to be the very first time, and only to approximate the circumstances of the victim, Juanita placed around her neck a breakaway collar through which Patsy had looped a rope. Having her lie on a long conference table, Patsy attached the rope to the legs of the table on the side above her head. Similarly, he attached another rope to the D-rings on either side of the safety buckle. This uncomfortably pressed against the ranger's face.
