Chair, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's thinking about the feasibility of enlarging his imposing Fiction Corpus with a story about how to write a story; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I accept the potential of exploiting English as everybody's second language. I don't trust in the certifiably commonplace process by which the English language is presented for study.Pointer

Beefing up a person's skillfulness with a language isn't like developing a faster boat. A language - a common language - is not just a tool that you can learn to manipulate with a greater amount of precision. A language can't be disentangled from the prevailing culture of a society 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 pupils recite English is to cheat them out of its cultural context. An informed instructor has to create a strategy for introducing it; the bravest pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe words on the basis of a particular corpus, a body of writing of varying size and consistency. This corpus may contain anything from a book about literature to some true real life stories. I burnt many candles forging my "wonderful" Fiction Corpus in order to form a special class 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 prepared a million words and I have classified them, reformulating them - not simply to teach the English tongue but to be an advocate for the human soul, and to provoke 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.

Though I was born in Europe, I had been brought up from a young age in America, living in states as diverse as Nebraska, Ohio and Connecticut. I was taught American values and saw reality from an American perspective. She was born and raised in a village in Poland. She went to work in the nearest town. The nearest city seemed like the center of the world. The American perspective was not something she was ever planning to see.

I've never gone hungry without deserving it. I've never been systemically beaten by a parent. I've never been fondled by a priest. That doesn't mean I can't listen to somebody who has had to experience such abuse and it doesn't mean I can't try to understand. Margo and I traveled 6,000 miles together. We slept in the same tent. We had to listen to each other. A person shouldn't need 6,000 miles to do it. We should be able to listen to each other just because we want to. We should've been taught to do it. If we haven't been taught, we should be learning how to do it and learning fast.

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 Chair

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 chair in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Chair 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.

Because the state held a controlling interest in the country's largest petroleum dealer, the ruling government (the Prime Minister and his colleagues), were ultimately in control of its actions. When the chairman of its board was about to sign a certain agreement with a certain company registered in Cyprus (a known tax haven) and controlled by two naturalized Polish citizens, the Office of the Protection of the State arrested him before he could do it. It turned out the two naturalized Polish citizens were two Ukrainians who claimed to be former musicians, who had married Polish wives, and who had founded their company with five thousand dollars in start-up capital, a company which now monopolized Poland's national oil supplies because the ruling party (the party of the Prime Minister and the President) had appointed a new chairman of the board who immediately signed the agreement that the former chairman of the board had been prevented from doing. It was all very, very suspicious.

Verse 308 from the chapter called Adolescence

"Thank him?" asked his grandmother. "For what? For coming to the funeral? Go ahead: go and see what kind of filth he lives in. But he won't let you in, Jesus, because they're ashamed: they know what kind of filthy animals they are. They'll take you up to the second floor, I bet. They've got two rooms in there that are 'finished.' Take a look at the bedsheets. Take a whiff. They smell like mold. They've got down comforters. They've got stacks of wool blankets - and for what? Nobody sleeps there! They've got carpets on every side: on the floor, on the wall - they're stacked in the basement: ten carpets I saw leaning against the wall; ten more, stacked on top of the floor. You know who bought those things? The Commandant's wife: she was the worst one of them all (God rest her merry soul): she would come twice a week from their house in town: she would cook for them, shout them down for not working hard enough, then go back: to their house in town! Why did she buy those things? Why did she buy a swing she never got to swing in? Why did she buy a massage chair she never got to sit in? I sat in it! After she was dead, I sat in it! It's a lemon! It's German crap! Why did she buy it? Was it supposed to be part of her estate? She's dead! She's dead and buried like everybody else.

Verse 260 from the chapter called Adolescence

Then the big one came: the one that made it all possible: the people who put the first man on Mars: the company that financed the first expedition: Yariba Corporation, based in Tokyo. They sent three vice-presidents! Then the chairman of the board! Then all Class-A stockholders got a free trip. They patted themselves on the back. The news organizations took a group photo. Then they announced their largest endeavor yet: an integrated power and irrigation system for the entire planet. It took years, but they did it. They bought materials and fuel, diamonds and robots. They made contracts. They traded companies with other Martian conglomerates, and, finally, under contract with SIS (Secure Interplanetary Shipping), by the license of the United Nations Organization, Yariba Corporation transported the first nuclear bomb to Mars.

Verse 7 from the chapter called Childhood

"Look," said Jesus, kneeling down in front of her chair. "I'm giving you this phone." He gave her a radiotelephone. "When you dial the number seven, you'll reach this phone." Holding up another radiotelephone, he said, "This is my phone. I want you to call me as often as you can - as often as you need to, alright?" Zoe nodded. "I want you to keep your eyes and ears open."

"What's going to happen?" she whispered.

Verses 902-903 from the chapter called Security

They sold heroin to kids. Heroin was wrapped up in that 'premium silk.' They sold it to kids on the street. They sold it to mothers with young children. They sold it to workers, young and old, blue and white collared. They sold it to lunatics, healthy people, sick people, people in wheelchairs, deadbeats, homosexuals - they didn't discriminate. They sold it to priests, politicians, bus drivers, Jewish people -they sold it to anyone with money to spend. If you were penniless, you had to rob someone. But God forbid you should rob from them: they would kill you! They would shoot you dead! They were once your best friends back in the day. That's what it was like: they were once your best friends and they were still your neighbors; you would greet them on the way downstairs.

Usage of Chair in Sex for Children

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.

And then I broke away and went to window. Indiana went to the chair and sat down. After a while, she said, "In this chair: when I am sitting here, I see myself...and I don't like what I see."

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 7, The Seventh Day, Part 1, Strength & Security Sector Reform, Section 1, Spending the Night with a Lover, Paragraph 7

For a moment, I wondered why. Maybe I thought they were applauding my courage. But then, instinct was more powerful, and I was the first to rip my hand away and start clapping. I was looking out the corner of my eye. It took Indiana quite a long time to start clapping. I took note of that. But immediately after the applause, without looking directly at Indiana (throwing my head in her direction but stopping short, looking obliquely, at the back of someone's chair in the preceding row), I quietly excused myself and ran to the restroom - for no purpose: I didn't have to do anything. So I got a drink of water instead.

Perhaps a glare from the lights of the console: I couldn't see them from where I was, but, perhaps, owing to Nike's hunched-over position (which he would only relax when he was looking down his nose, at which point, he was leaning back in his chair - but only briefly, as then he would lean forward again), with his body thus contracted, the lights from the console may have been reflecting off his face, concentrating under his brow - but, I suppose, it may have been a reflection from the dashboard, angled as it was towards the driver, or maybe a combination thereof - regardless, there was a distinct glare on his face, and, hollowing out his features, he looked like the devil's minion, or, at least, someone trapped in hell: either a weary traveler misled, or a duty-bound man who was chafing against the fiber of his will.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 1, Family & Welfare Reform, Section 2, Understanding Physical Desire, Paragraph 2, Clauses 5-6

We were driving up the Allée du Bord de l'Eau, having turned, I presume, from Anatole Boulevard. Perhaps Nike was looking across the river at something - I don't know. At any rate, it was nighttime and very dark - there was no moon - and yet, I could see Nike's face very clearly. Perhaps a glare from the lights of the console: I couldn't see them from where I was, but, perhaps, owing to Nike's hunched-over position (which he would only relax when he was looking down his nose, at which point, he was leaning back in his chair - but only briefly, as then he would lean forward again), with his body thus contracted, the lights from the console may have been reflecting off his face, concentrating under his brow - but, I suppose, it may have been a reflection from the dashboard, angled as it was towards the driver, or maybe a combination thereof - regardless, there was a distinct glare on his face, and, hollowing out his features, he looked like the devil's minion, or, at least, someone trapped in hell: either a weary traveler misled, or a duty-bound man who was chafing against the fiber of his will.

Suddenly realizing how silly I was, I had to laugh, and, getting up from my chair, I asked psychology class girl if she wouldn't like a cigarette. She said certainly, and, picking up the tape recorder, I asked if she were done with it. She said, "Yes, let's have a listen." So we went outside and I tried to rewind the tape as far back as necessary.

"It's funny." Indiana wagged her finger. "There is another thing we did on St. Luca. The whole village would start to make a chair. One family would make one leg. Another family would make another. It was a way of strengthening the community. Like the apple, we had to do something every day - even if it was only a bit of sanding. We couldn't finish until Christmas. When it was done, we would put the chair inside the church. If somebody was brave enough to step on it, he would be able to see who in the village is the witch.

Albert asked me to marry him - right then and there.
