Exchange, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal declines to debate the idea of reinforcing his superb Fiction Corpus with a biography of artists; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't question the idea of administering English as the international community's second language. I don't believe in the unexceptional process by which the English language is presented for study.Pointer

Improving one's expertise with a language isn't like making a hotter kiln. A language - a living language - is not merely an instrument that you can teach yourself to use with a greater amount of precision. A living tongue cannot be isolated from the professed knowledge of a community 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 cheat him out of its cultural context. A good educator has to develop a technique for introducing it; the insightful student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe a language based on a specific corpus, a set of writing of varying scope and consistency. Such a corpus could contain anything from a book about literature to some real horror stories. I burnt many candles developing my "superb" Fiction Corpus in order to form a peculiar genre 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 shaped a million words and I have indexed them, reformulating them - not just to teach a tongue but to be an advocate for the human soul, and to encourage that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Prejudice 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

Lots of people go on road trips. Not everybody criss-crosses Europe in 46 days. Especially not with a complete stranger.

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.

I considered myself young and able, and being American I often convinced myself I was more than able. She didn't feel quite so young. Having grown up in Poland, what was and is still considered by many to be a poor country, she had the added burden of not only being disadvantaged but having it held against her. The difference became palpable when I realized I couldn't even properly translate into Polish the very American word, "opportunity." A chance? Sure. An occasion? Why not? An opportunity? Not in the book.

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.

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 Exchange

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 exchange in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Exchange 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.

We were among Capitalists that day. When we got to the Sanctuary in Lichen, it was full of them. In trousers, crinoline, made-up and dyed - if Marx were alive, he would have sat on a rock and cried. We were impressed, but uncomfortable. We wandered; the church's nave was huge. The floor was emptied. There were three different orchestras preparing to play. I wondered how badly the Church needed money - not many people could rent out a Sanctuary for a private party, but Sacha Cohen-Krupnik, now that his father was dead, was certainly one of them. Perhaps your grandfather was allowed to use it, in exchange for giving the Church and the Cosmonauts their privileges on Mars.

Verse 22 from the chapter called Childhood

Jesus's mythic image was propelled, in large part, by his need for security. When he commandeered the Blessed Virgin Mary's church on Sand Island, he quartered himself in the presbytery. Not only was the pastor sworn to secrecy, but was obliged by Jesus's righteous entreaties to pray to the Blessed Czeslaw night and day for success in their common quest for truth. In exchange, Jesus promised to press the Pope and do everything possible to further Czeslaw's canonization, which, for centuries, had languished. Almost as an afterthought, Jesus obtained papal confirmation, when, in possession of numerous tickets to the distant and previously inaccessible planet Mars, he successfully bargained with the Holy See, and, in exchange for transporting clerics, he received confirmation (and extraordinary privileges) not only for a regular order of knights, but, remembering his ancient promise to the pastor, for the extraordinary canonization of the Blessed Czeslaw, which, up till then, Jesus had completely ignored. So urgent was your father's need for secrecy in those days that Jesus had been ready to promise the world - salvation - milk and honey in heaven - a second story to the presbytery - just so the pastor would keep his word. Not a single parishioner could find out what a distinguished guest he had - it was imperative.

Verse 421 from the chapter called Arms

"I was told," continued Sapper, "that after we passed Wroclaw, we would exchange places - but no: he was too proud. And you know what? The windshield vents must have been broken or something: I had to wipe the vapor off with a towel every five minutes. When the towel was soaked, I used up all the tissues; then, toilet paper. It was ridiculous. In the morning, I noticed that there was a defrost button; I don't think my grandfather even knows it's there. If I had seen it, I would've turned it on - or at least, I would've tried to - but the night was pitch black! And the windshield was soaked: halfway through the trip, I ran out of paper. My grandfather had to use his hand. He took off his glasses 'cause he couldn't see! Leaning forward, he was squinting out of his one good eye. It was just about the scariest thing I've ever had to live through: tractor-trailers, one after the other, squeezing us, passing us. When they went in the opposite direction, they would blow us so much wind, I thought we would tip over: the whole car would shudder.

Verse 212 from the chapter called Adolescence

"We're blackmailing SECURITA - what's there not to get?"

"What are we getting in exchange?"

Verses 47-48 from the chapter called Security

The Marshall of Parliament waited five long years (and became Marshall of Parliament) before he was judged a liar for the second time (this time, on appeal). He appealed once again and initially resisted calls for his resignation, but even his own party, to whose leadership he had just been elected three days earlier, was unwilling to support him. They had entered government a few years before with fifty percent approval ratings in national polls and were now down to five. They were suffering not only from the whole Russian spy-chairman of the board debacle, but also from a film producer's corrupt solicitation of potentially very beneficial legislation to a large media firm allegedly in the name of the Prime Minister and his cronies, and also from a case where two Parliamentary deputies revealed state secrets by warning their friends in local government of impending arrest, and also from a case where the husband of one of the Prime Minister's cronies was arrested for taking money in exchange for arranging the privatization of a public power plant and then using that money to finance his wife's political campaign. In that particular case, the woman's sister-in-law and niece were simultaneously arrested for conspiracy and immediately confessed to their own guilt. It was very refreshing.

Usage of Exchange 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.

So who is this Luka? Is he trying to live a dream? And who is this new friend of his? Who is Nike to be entering a partnership? Doesn't he worry about destroying dreams? Don't they both know that yeomanry's been dead or dying? Yeomen live on the hillsides only. For their own sakes, they dare not ply their trade on the plains of Europe. For we have consolidated agriculture, and, if Luka isn't careful, he'll become just another vīlicus: a slave to Nike or the next man who comes to control the revenue. But I wanted to save him. I wanted to ask Nike what the nature of this operation was. I wanted to know whether Luka were patronizing him: providing him with a cheap supply in exchange for percentage. But of course, naturally: Nike was in complete control. He led the conversation elsewhere.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 7, Being Pessimistic, Paragraph 2

BERT: Well, the story is that when he came to visit me once, he broke a glass that he was drinking out of. It slipped right out of his hand. And we were joking that he really had no way to repay me, because he was always on the road, and I didn't expect to see him again. But he told me to prove it. So, being a man of finance, I suggested a bill of exchange.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 8, Financial Instruments, Paragraph 56, Clauses 1-5

BERT: Well, let me explain the history. You see, in the old days, merchants would keep their assets in banks all over the ancient world. And if you were shipping goods across the Mediterranean or something, you would sell your goods to a merchant at the port. You would give him a bill, and he would accept it by signing it. But then he'd give it back to you, because the bill wouldn't become due until a certain agreed-upon time. Now in the meanwhile, you could sell that bill to anyone; that's why it's negotiable - except that if the buyer defaults on the debt, you are liable because you've endorsed it - unless you sell it back to his actual creditors, which is to say, the banks that are holding his assets. You don't have to wait for the bill to be due to get your money, but the bank will take a cut for themselves, because then they have to wait, and you'll have to sell it for less than it's worth. And that's the premise behind the bill of exchange. Sorry for the lecture.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 8, Financial Instruments, Paragraph 34

ANDY: Oh, well, I understand perfectly now. But what about this thing? What is this framed here? I don't understand it.

BERT: Oh, that is a very special thing. It's a bill of exchange.

ANDY: A bill of exchange? I'm not sure I know what that means.

BERT: Well, in more technical terms, it's a negotiable instrument.

ANDY: Oh, I see. Is there a less technical term?

BERT: It's like a check.

ANDY: Ah, is it made out to you?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 8, Financial Instruments, Paragraphs 21-27

I can imagine how significant a look this was, how striking an exchange. But I am surprised you didn't remember it was Christmas Eve in Austria. I suppose you were somewhat disengaged from the rest of the evening, and that, consequently, in your memory, that shared moment somehow strayed out of context. But I remember that night very well, especially in connection with another night.

The Amazon was called. He decided Orbitz's exchange with the shopkeeper was a kind of code. He ordered that they both be watched. It wasn't hard to do. Orbitz didn't move from his hotel room. The shopkeeper stayed in his shop. Customers came hawking antique ray guns. There were bidets customized for extinct species. A collection of hand-painted mechanical snakes was ruefully turned down. After a few days the members of the surveillance team noticed something strange. The shopkeeper never bargained. If he made an offer to buy something it was invariably albeit grudgingly accepted. The rest of the junk he dismissed even if he liked it. "What a shame," he would say. "I wish I could afford it." In the same hour he would sell something for ten times its cost. He was making piles of money.

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.
