Nature, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal refuses to consider the potency of reinforcing his handsome Fiction Corpus with yet another science fiction book; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't reject the concept of enacting English as a worldwide lingua franca. I do challenge the unsurprising model by which English is taught.Pointer

Polishing a person's skill with a language isn't like promoting a more resilient bow. A language - a living language - is not just a tool that you can learn to manipulate with a greater amount of precision. A living language can not be parted from the prevailing culture 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 pupil to recite English is to deprive her of its cultural context. A capable teacher must have a strategy for introducing it; the smartest student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define a language on the basis of a particular corpus, a set of writing of various scope and consistency. They may contain anything from a book about literature to an entire set of really inspirational stories. I watched many moons pass creating my "ponderous" 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 pieced together a million words and I have examined them, reshaping them - not simply to teach an American tongue but to describe the human spirit, and to pressure that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Monopolies 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

One week after arriving in Europe, I met a woman in the sauna on the ground floor of the large villa she shared with her ex-husband. Four weeks later she was sharing a small rain-soaked tent with me in Vienna, our little gas-fired stove barely capable of boiling a cup of water. It wasn't until we reached Croatia that we decided to invest in a large electric kettle. It was quite the luxury and it made me very happy.

As an artist inspired by a young woman's struggle with self-esteem and bulimia, body acceptance had always featured prominently in my aesthetic. Having recently discovered naturism and its mantra of body acceptance in the United States, I was eager to explore the style and philosophy of naturist clubs and the beauty of naturist campsites in Europe. By a trick of fate, I found myself first in Bielsko-Biała, Poland. Margo's home.

From America I brought with me the American can-do spirit. She saw the car that I had bought, the terrible camp stove I had borrowed, and my sundry canned goods and challenged me to make-do. In my optimism I assured her that if we lacked for anything I would make up the difference. She assured me that if she lacked for anything she would find her way to the nearest airport and fly home. Luckily that never happened.

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 Nature

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 nature in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Nature 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.

Whether or not it were indeed modesty was not important. I later had reasons to doubt its true nature, but the truth of the matter is: I was oblivious to such analysis at the time. At the time, I was conscious of little else but the fact that I was courting a young woman's attention. My motives were inconsequential; success and victory were all that mattered. This 'modest façade' theory was the product of later attempts to explain to myself my actions and feelings, which, by a certain point, seemed to be springing, not from any conscious pool of memory, but from a void, like the one from which infants awake, and to which we feel compelled to add frustratingly unknowable significance and effect.

Verse 439 from the chapter called Bohemia

Like most homes built by their owners, it was a mix of red brick and concrete block - whatever happened to be cheapest at the time, it was safe to assume, owing to the random nature of its composition, which by then was covered only sporadically by stuccowork. Four floors there were indeed, with a concrete balcony on every one, wrapping around a single corner (the most prominent one) and spreading across to either side. "Like a cheap hotel," said Jesus once again. "Everybody's got their own view."

Verse 279 from the chapter called Adolescence

One time, for example, during a telephone conversation Jesus insisted upon (Zoe had promised to call him back at nine o'clock but didn't), your mother had once again been crying about how worthless she was and Jesus, having contemplated the nature of Zoe's 'disease,' had been trying to cheer her up with some scornful humor - sarcasm, as they call it, which Jesus had tried to give in a goodhearted fashion, which failed, of course, despite the fact that she had laughed several times - and then, having been told to stop 'clowning around,' Jesus said, with all seriousness (and with no idea what the consequences would be), "Do you know what your disease is called?"

Verse 1123 from the chapter called Security

Usage of Nature 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.

After we bade good night to Indiana, there was even room in my heart (and patience in my brain) for entertaining Nike's particular brand of silliness. "I have new names for both of you," he said, on the way back. "Indiana, whom I genuinely adore, shall henceforth be known as 'the Romaniac.' As for you, my strange, chimney-sweeping friend from Austria, you shall no longer be known as A. Jo Ann Stewart, but, if my very limited knowledge of German does not fail me, you shall henceforth be known, quite appropriately, as the infamous Johoffen Legen, because, I have no doubt, as an artist, you will soon gain a reputation, not only for the beauty of your individual pieces, but for the very frank and open nature of your expositions. I only ask one question: when is your first public exhibit?" He was smiling like the very devil.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 30, Presenting Oneself to a Potential Husband, Paragraph 22

I think the history of modern settlement is so fascinating, especially the concessions which the rest of nature has made in the face of our progress. Humanity has had to transform nature to its own purposes, and it is interesting that many people dislike such realities; they find them regrettable, as if they were all part of a conflict we are somehow compelled to wage. But I think the story is heroic, though indeed, our failures are always lamentable. I am the first to agree that respecting nature is critical, but we must respect nature while we continue to conquer. In this war, we cannot become the slaves of nature. Nature must be an honorable enemy. Ah, but speaking of enemies, I was supposed to tell you about the gallows of Tyburn.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 10, Using Metaphor, Paragraph 2

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.

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

Nike dropped his pike and walked away, following her white cape through the streets until she disappeared into a convent. Nike smiled - he laughed: he laughed so hard he cried: he cried like a happy newborn child, blinded by nature, knowing nothing and scared of being left alone, but: no longer waiting for life, and expecting only the greatest happiness on which to suckle.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 6, The Sixth Day, Part 1, Children & Education Reform, Section 6, Encountering Chastity, Paragraph 4

I might even venture to finger it - that dark beauty - as the source of her present marital troubles. God knows that Albert has always been far from transparent - even to my own critical perception - but his reticence is no sign of tranquility, and though we may have once considered it a complement to Indiana's more garrulous nature, we may now have to add it to the strangeness that has always insinuated some sort of unstable neurosis in that man.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 1, Genital Pain as a Result of Physical Trauma, Paragraph 2, Clauses 6-8

Usage of Nature in Tsiga Tsiga Tsiga

Bullets whizzing by a statue of Nikola Tesla

A collection of stories featuring a sexy Parisian ghost, a spooky Moon base full of vagina-faced aliens, a policeman with an Irish name, a truck full of watermelons, a flautist, and a man who has to see another man about a diseased horse.

Over the next few months of Ferrari's ultimately short life, he would wonder what was meant by that revelation. Was it the nature of her bedroom window she wished to relay or its location? "The glass," she had said, "is stained red after my name." Ferrari decided, having been dismissed rather coldly from her presence, it must have been the former.

– from “Italy Sucks and Has Sucked For A Long Time,” an adventure story featuring senseless destruction

Tae rolled himself to the waves. He let them knock his body about. This is the way, he thought. This is how you let go. If he could stop trying to rationalize Bo, she might be able to stop irrationally punishing herself. To embrace each other, they would have to stop embracing their own natures.

– from “How Tae & Bo Took Over the World and Kung & Fu Didn't,” an apocryphal bible story featuring crabs

Ferrari left her without saying a word. He went to recline on the day bed in the garden. The skylarks bombarded him with noisy twittering-nature's version of men shooting crossbows and hand cannons. Ferrari thought of how angry he had been with his stepmother. When she showed up with food, the feeling dissipated. She sat on the edge of the bed. Ferrari stared at her bosom. He wanted to unlace her brown bodice and reach inside. "Boy or girl?" he asked.

Usage of Nature in Sorry Ms. Jackson

Chiseled letters from an ancient stone tablet hanging on a wall

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

FLETCHER: Oh, Money! God of first fruits! Bringer of knowledge! Harvester of truth! Where would Man be without thy cold kindness? Give me your hand. Let the lorikeets squeak out the rhythm of our steps. We'll dance a polonaise. I'll sashay you around the South Pacific. Who could prove to be a better partner? No man could be as faithful; no woman either. Even if she bleed by the moon, her temper is not as mild. Obedience notwithstanding, her character can seem, at times, positively restive. Feistiness is a woman's most vicious virtue. It can burn a man's pride even while it warms his heart. In truth, a man who marries money is liable to finding a bed so stiff the kingfisher would laugh. Without it, one would cry at night like the ghost bird. Thanks to money, nature is Man's slave. Weathering the vicissitudes of fortune, the wealthy man works the ground for as long as the ground does not work him. When that day comes, let's hope that our money has not defrauded us of our nature.

– ACT I, line 797

GREY GOOSE: Imprisonment: starvation: being pressed to death.

MS. JACKSON: Is that what awaits me, husband?

GREY GOOSE: No.

MS. JACKSON: Then what?

GREY GOOSE: You know what the penalty is.

MS. JACKSON: Homelessness? You think that if you burn my house down, I'll come live in your sty? Fool! I'd rather wander about the island cursing your name for the rest of my life.

GREY GOOSE: Do you know what I adore about fire? More than its color, its beauty, or its warmth? more than its light, its speed, or its age? more than the fear it brings to bug or beast? more than its purity? its fertility? its never-ending energy? or its ability to wander about the island endlessly seeking out its prey? More than all those things, I love its loyalty to itself: its obedience to nature. Oh, wife! When you know how to stoke her, she can be so perfectly predictable.

MS. JACKSON: Fletcher would never let you get away with it.

GREY GOOSE: He did once; why not twice?

MS. JACKSON: Fletcher!

Usage of Nature in Miscellaneous Dingbats

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

It started with my friend Aaron. Steve as I call him. He's from a Jewish family. Reformed. He's big on cooking. Gardening. Real nature buff. Knows plants by sight. He loves Woodstock. When he suggested I go camping up there with him I was all for it. I'm usually up for anything.

– from “Woodstock,” a life story based on true life, namely the author's

Pfizer wandered around the ground floor for a while. Aimless and distracted. He thought about hopping into a suit and swimming through the sky. In a few years it wouldn't be possible. The atmosphere was getting less dense. Pfizer hit himself in the head. Trivialities. It was the phosphane lions he had to worry about. Their habitat was disappearing. If he couldn't prove their indigenous nature they would never survive. Only his samples would remain. As long as some unscrupulous administrator didn't toss them out. Along with Pfizer's career.

Life is a spinning sphere with Joy at one pole and Sadness at the other. Each continuously feeding its pair. Joy flanked by the emotions of Trust on one side, Surprise on the other. 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.
