Knees, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal refuses to consider the potential of extending his sizeable Fiction Corpus with a treatise on giclee art prints; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't challenge the soundness of exercising English as a universal language. I don't have faith in the unexciting approach by which English is presented for study.Pointer

Enriching a person's adeptness with a language isn't like launching a more prodigious quern. A language - a living language - is not just a tool that you can teach yourself to manipulate with a greater amount of precision. A spoken tongue cannot be dissociated from the professed knowledge of a tribe 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 a person to recite English is to rob him of its cultural context. An informed instructor has to find a way to introduce it; the insightful pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define a language based on a particular corpus, a set of writing of various size and consistency. This corpus can contain anything from a book about literature to a whole bunch of narrative fiction. I burned many candles creating my "hefty" Fiction Corpus in order to form a new 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 crafted a million words and I have enumerated them, reshaping them - not simply to teach an American tongue but to be an advocate for the human spirit, and to provoke that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help Replace Passive-aggressive behavior With Truth in 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

In June of 2011 I arrived in Europe for what I hoped would be a great adventure; my only concrete plan, to visit Croatia. By September I had driven 6,000 miles and visited 12 different countries, all with a woman I met on the first Friday of my trip.

Call it an accident. Call it divine will. I was never supposed to meet Margo...if not for one man's random criminal act...another abuse piled upon humanity by a fellow human. A robbery. A purse-snatching of a purse that happened to contain a passport. An assault on the human body. One of society's bad habits that I had come to fight as an artist working for body acceptance.

Being from America, all I had to do in Europe was turn on the radio to hear an American song. All I had to do was walk into a movie theater to see an American movie. To be understood all I had to do was speak English. Being from Poland, she couldn't stand listening to the radio for all the political nonsense being bandied about. She didn't like watching American movies because she claimed they all ended the same way. She didn't want to speak English with me because she not only wanted to say things correctly but she wanted to say them her way and nobody had ever succeeded in teaching her how. I desperately wanted to understand. She wanted to be understood.

As far apart culturally as we may have been, we spent 6,000 miles in one car. We spent over 40 nights in one tent. We started learning how to listen to each other. We started learning how to accept our differences and how to let them help us instead of driving us apart. Slowly but surely, we started learning how to beat the devils that abuse us.

One of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

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 Knees

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 knees in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Knees 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.

She dropped to her knees and covered her face and cried. I thought she was going to faint, but she didn't.

"I'll see you tomorrow," I said. "At dawn."

Verses 779-780 from the chapter called Bohemia

So we stopped at the warehouse where your father's uncle bought some clothes by the scale. He bought enough clothes to fill twenty trash bags. Throwing about five trash bags into the back seat, he was able to fit five more into the trunk. Getting into the car, we placed all the other trash bags between our legs, underneath them and on our laps, beside ourselves, behind our backs and our heads, on either side, piling them underneath our arms and above them, squeezing them into our crotches, filling the pits of our knees and arms, making stacks that came up to our noses and our asses. They were not comfortable. They were plastic bags. They were black: they absorbed the midday sun. They made us hot and sweaty. They stuck to our skin. These plastic trash bags full of clothing stuck to our skin. It was disgusting. They smelled. It was like being poached in oil with sweet and sour pepper. The clothes were spilling out. Somebody would wear this filthy shirt squeezing out of my crotch. It was disgusting. There were balls of nylon stocking squeezing themselves into my ass. When we turned into a back alley and stopped, I was grateful.

"Is this the store?" I asked.

Verses 175-176 from the chapter called Adolescence

At five o'clock, Jesus had new guests. My sister had been praying very diligently with the Black Madonna for quite some time, but, then, she was joined by Jesus's father, Jesus's uncle, his uncle's wife, and his uncle's two children. Together, we bade farewell to the Black Madonna, singing songs for an hour, and, finally, holding candles and kissing her on our knees, we walked outside into the stairwell at precisely six o'clock. She was handed over to our neighbors.

Verse 575 from the chapter called Adolescence

"'Truly,' said the girl, 'my skin burns - but how can I trust you?'

"The Wolf said, 'Look into my eyes and let me lick your face.'

"The girl was frightened. 'If I let you lick my face,' she said, 'my whole head will burst into flame.'

"'On the contrary,' said the Wolf, 'your head will burn if you don't let me lick it; that is to say, you must trust me.'

"'So be it,' said the girl. She got down on her knees and looked into his eyes. The Lonely Planet licked her beautiful face with his black tongue. Nothing happened - her face was wet, but apart from that, nothing happened.

Verses 190-194 from the chapter called Childhood

The night before the ball, I dreamt a very strange dream. I dreamt that my baby boo, my old girlfriend, whom I left before I joined the Lay Confraternity of the Pilgrim Church, was in my bed, licking my soles. She was doing it very humbly, as if she were genuinely trying to apologize for being a fool. Then, after licking them for a very long time, she reached for my testicles and suddenly, instead of being on my back, I was on my hands and knees, facing the opposite way, and her open palm was gently lifting up my testes and sapping them of their strength. I could feel my energy being drained. Suddenly realizing I was being weakened, I woke up. Almost immediately I grabbed my testes and yes - they were still there - thank God - but I truly felt that some of my power had been robbed. What a witch! I thought to myself. She came to me in my dreams to rob me of my manhood.

"What could it mean?" I asked.

Usage of Knees 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.

What was going on? Was this procedure standard? For whom was he standing then? for himself? or someone else? Was that bastard Christian behind this or not? Was that beautiful woman behind those lights right now? Was this the only chance he'd have? "Number five can go." If number five goes, then what about four? Was this lineup for number two? Then where's his lawyer? Where's anybody's lawyer? But most importantly: where is number four's lawyer? Why hadn't he called anyone? Why must he be so arrogant? "Number four, step forward." It's true: he wasn't formally charged. In the States, that means no lawyer. But this was France. Why didn't he know French law better? "Step back, please." Why must he be so helpless? "Step back, number four." Nike fell to his knees. He brought his hands together in supplication. "Please," he said, "please, forgive me. I want to love you - do you hear me? I want to love you!" But there were people rushing and crowding around him.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 1, Family & Welfare Reform, Section 7, Surprising Oneself, Paragraph 4

Those legs were like two little piglets - what am I saying? They were like two gigantic piglets. And she was naked: she was naked reclining on top of pillows - a whole mound of pillows being crushed by that enormous weight. How could she walk? She had to be carried around on a gigantic litter. She was so heavy, her four porters were not standing: they were crawling: on their knees and elbows. There was a white one, a black one, a brown one, and a yellow one - a man for each corner crawling on his knees and elbows, hoping his back wouldn't break.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 2, Science & Reform Schools, Section 15, The Rule of Fantasy Among Men, Paragraph 1, Clauses 11-16

And then it came: in the form of a sparkling bias dress reaching the knees, flapping open at the back - a diagonal path waiting to be closed. Indiana's hand reached behind for the zipper, and, grasping it above her hip, she began to zip slowly up the diagonal edge. I followed her beautiful hand. The last of the garter belt disappeared underneath it. The fabric began coating that wondrous plane, covering the noble erector, passing over the spine.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 9, Intoxication, Paragraph 8

Returning the book to the shelf, I began idly wandering around the room. I stopped in front of the wall where Albert had placed his diplomas. There was an award for winning a mathematical Olympiad in Berlin: nineteen seventy-one. "Before my time," I said to myself, and I continued walking. I stopped in front of the large bay windows. I looked outside. Already 'twas dusk. There was no one in the street. I felt uneasy. Going to the fireplace, I looked for a fagot to burn. But there was nothing. Getting up off my knees, I glanced upon a strange object on the mantelpiece. It was a piece of paper - in a large ornamental frame. Written across the top in large print was the word, 'ACCEPTED.' But most of the paper was devoted to a large mathematical equation. I reached for the frame to get a closer look, but, when I removed it from the mantelpiece, two photographs fell to the floor.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 8, Financial Instruments, Paragraph 1

They must have been police or something, but it didn't matter: suddenly, I could see Nike in the same position: on his knees in supplication, with his hands pressed together as if in prayer. But this time: his head was bowed; he was untouched; and, there was nobody around him. I saw him from far away. Directly in front of me, in the corner of my vision, was Christian's face. He was staring at me. "Was this the man who raped you?" he asked. Then a voice whispered, "No." Christian kept looking at me. "Was he a friend of the man who raped you?" But there was silence. "Was he there when it happened?" Again, silence. "Alright," said Christian, "you can go now." So I turned away.

"We haven't tried it yet," said Tae. "Help yourself."

He let go. He unbuttoned his waistband. The woman crawled away like a worm. Luka got his pants off. He jerked down his underwear. He only had patience to get them past his knees. He hopped after the woman. He snagged her by the ankles. He pulled her in. He seized the upper reaches of her thighs. His thick thumbs dug into her crotch. He spread apart her lips.

Luka leaned in. He smiled. He said incredulously, "You're a blond?" The question went unanswered.

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.
