Crowd, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's mulling over the concept of reinforcing his trifling Fiction Corpus with more elaborate fictions; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I accept the possibility of upholding English as everyone's second language. I don't have faith in the unnewsworthy way in which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Fortifying one's command of a language isn't like creating a stronger crank. A language is not merely an instrument that you can learn to exploit with greater amounts of precision. A living tongue cannot be cleaved 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 pupils to recite English is to strip them of its cultural context. A worthy instructor must develop a technique for introducing it; the perceptive student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define words on the basis of a particular corpus, a body of written works of various scope and consistency. This corpus might include anything from a book about literature to some really short stories online. I lost many a sleepless night creating my "solid" Fiction Corpus in order to form a precise sort 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 drawn up a million words and I have anatomized them, reframing them - not simply to teach the English tongue but to reveal the human spirit, and to propel that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Corporate Mismanagement 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 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 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.

Do unto others as you would have done unto you. But how to judge what we would want done to us if we've never been in somebody else's shoes? If we've never been abandoned by our mother, how do we treat somebody who has? Somebody who seems to constantly suffer the repurcussions of it? Margo and I had 46 days and 6,000 miles to try on each other's shoes. We had one car and one tent in which to hear each other's words. We learned to cooperate. We started learning 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 Crowd

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 crowd in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Crowd 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.

On the way to his first - and, as it turned out, his last - hearing, Jesus's face was covered. The County Commandant and the County Sheriff had their offices right next to each other on the main road in Treblinka - right at the head of the main road to Wroclaw. They were manor houses, ancient palaces built centuries ago by wealthy residents, no doubt commandeered during some dark and long-forgotten age by the State. Jesus had been kept in the donjon, so to speak. On his way out, there was a crowd of salivating reporters vying for a statement, a crowd of photographers attempting to get his photograph, and lots and lots of video cameras recording Jesus's head being tucked into the giant arm of an anti-terrorist police officer wearing a black mask. Jesus's face was also covered with black cloth. He was famous - what a surprise. This is my father's legacy, thought Jesus.

Verse 168 from the chapter called Security

Truly, by the next song, there were four more couples dancing. By the one after that, there were about ten. By then, I was crowded.

Verse 464 from the chapter called Bohemia

"You're pretty good," she said.

"Let's hurry up before they crowd us in."

Verses 462-463 from the chapter called Bohemia

There was still a small crowd of people near the entrance to the club. Jesus had no idea who those people were, but, nevertheless, trying to approach his prey at that point would've been suicide; Jesus had no way of knowing how many random people knew him as that guy whose father sells books - "you know, his father's that crazy guy who talks to himself," they would've told the police. Besides, the Krupnik would've seen his face, and, having seen his face, Jesus would've been compelled by all sense of self-preservation to kill the man. That was not an option: Jesus was not prepared to kill anyone; he was not a murderer; he was a poor man. Jesus waited. The future brother-in-law showed up. "Shit," Jesus said. The two of them were leaving together; that made things very difficult.

Verse 611 from the chapter called Adolescence

At twelve o'clock, the song came on. Immediately, I recognized it. Taking one last shot, I attached my mask, left the bar, and made my way through the now crowded dance floor. I felt nothing - only my legs taking me one step at a time.

Verse 1170 from the chapter called Security

Usage of Crowd 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.

I had another dream last night, by the way. I suppose I've got plenty of time to describe it to you. It begins in the hospital, in a room not unlike the one in which I find myself. But, of course, in the dream, it seemed much more spacious. It was crowded with people, most of which I didn't recognize. Except for Rothko, they were all doctors and police officers. They were all very interested in seeing the patient: to see whether his condition was really improved - that is to say, whether all his members were functioning appropriately.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 2, Science & Reform Schools, Section 8, Being a Victim, Paragraph 1

Looking from beyond his tinted window, he spied upon the gathering crowds. He looked at every face, conscious of the possibility that she might be wearing different garments. How impossible, he thought. How purely impossible! There was a multitude! He was only looking in one direction: he was looking left. There was no time to look right. He would have to look on that side on the way back. But what if he missed her!

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 1, Family & Welfare Reform, Section 2, Understanding Physical Desire, Paragraph 8

Waiting a few seconds to make the moment more dramatic, I mustered in my throat as stern a voice as possible, and just when it looked like malice and cruel amusement would triumph, I yelled out three hundred dollars with coldest passion. It caused a sensation, a sweet and climactic joy for which no other bidder was prepared. Almost immediately Barbara was sold, causing a general sigh of relief that passed over the crowd, enveloping Barbara's own satisfaction as if they were apologizing for what almost happened, congratulating themselves at the same time for being able to enjoy such a dangerous game so successfully.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 7, Dating a Woman with Dogs, Paragraph 10

Other people left but more people came to take their place. At Holborn station, the train was still crowded. I saw Indiana excusing herself and pushing forward. I waited until they were close behind; the three men were still in front of me, but I excused myself politely and they made way. We got off the train in one piece.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 11, The Underground, Paragraph 5

Soon enough, she was swallowed by the waiting crowd. They were all waiting to get it on. They might as well have all been naked: I could see right through their clothes. They were all coming in droves: like bees: coming on, getting off. The train kept going in and out of tunnels.

The next morning, Shephard left Clark sound asleep. He walked onto the main road. Beyond the monument to Chairman Mao, men crowded around a cow on its side. Shephard joined them. The cow's legs were tied. One man was carrying a huge knife. He crouched next to the beast's neck. With the edge of his blade, he felt for the end of the jaw.

As the crowd laughed it up, Patsy was called away by an urgent phone call. It was a Detective Morimoto of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police. The detective explained that he was investigating a series of suspicious deaths from high-rise buildings in the Tokyo area. He had decided, upon being informed by Interpol of the investigation in the United States, to contact the lieutenant directly, since he was concerned that the deaths in Tokyo might have something to do with not only the Statue of Liberty death, but a girl who fell from a statue of Beipu in Taiwan.

Clark laughed. "As long as there's oil in the desert, they'll keep those bushes alive. The poor people can starve."

The bus entered a small town. Shephard saw a building with big, square buttresses and top-hinged shutters. The sign read, "Lucky Jewel Guesthouse."

"This is it," he whispered.

Usage of Crowd 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.

The girl frowned. "What am I doing here?" she asked. "I go to school here. What about you?"

Sir Lewis didn't understand. "I thought you went to that community college. Did you transfer here?"

The girl frowned again. "I've always gone here. I was shoved on that other team cause our team was too crowded. It was full of upperclassmen. They've graduated."

– from “The Skirt on the Proctor,” a kid story about hitting goals in an unforgiving world

The Amazon called his team. One half was still following Orbitz on the cruise ship. The other half was in front of the shop. He ordered them into the neon building. They walked up to the second floor. The team leader paused. He could hear something in the room ahead. It sounded like a man rapping his fingers on a desk. He pushed open the door. There was no desk. There was no man. There was clutter everywhere. Strange objects of art and furniture stacked on top of each other loomed from every corner. The rapping continued. It was slower now. It was more cautious. The men squeezed into the room. All of them were transfixed by the sound. It was coming from behind a low curtain. The curtain was draped over what seemed like a crate. Or a cage. The men crowded in front of it. The leader reached out his hand. He grabbed a corner of the curtain. He lifted it.

– from “The Death and Life of Captain Orbitz,” a science fiction romance written out of respect for Stanislaw Lem, if you know who that is

By dusk a crowd of locals had gathered. I could smell somebody using Steve's special supplement. He wasn't sharing. I got sucked into listening to some country rube's monologue about a friend who came out as a lesbian. She kept insisting to me that she respected her friend's decision but she wasn't going to enter into that kind of immoral relationship herself. I wondered if there was any polite way I could leave.

– from “Woodstock,” a life story based on something that happened, namely to the author

I was taken to a football game. Not at a stadium. More like a field with a stand. My uncle called it "The Moldavian Wembley." This is where my stomach caught up with me. At some point during the first half I rushed out to find a toilet. The only permament structure I found had a long line sticking out of it. The portable toilets were crowded. I decided to find something further afield. At the very least a bush.

– from “The Most Idiotic Actress,” a fictional story based on true events as related to the author

The creeping silence of the crowded room finally brought Pfizer back to his senses. He faced forward and sat up straight in his flex-form chair. "No," he said. "It's Microsoft, by the way."

Censorship says everything...as should modern wall art

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.
