Engine, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is wrestling with the feasibility of boosting his outsized Fiction Corpus with a fairy tale about how to sell your art; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't question the potential of implementing English as everyone's second language. I don't accept the unexceptional way in which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Perfecting one's proficiency with a language isn't like developing a faster boat. A language - a spoken language - is not merely a tool that you can teach yourself to employ with greater amounts of precision. A spoken tongue cannot be isolated from the philosophical currents 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.

To make a man recite English is to deprive him of its cultural context. A capable teacher must prepare a plan for introducing it; the smartest pupil goes out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define words based on a particular corpus, a set of writing of varying scope and consistency. They can contain everything from a book about literature to some really fictional short stories. I lost many a sleepless night forging my "vast" Fiction Corpus in order to form a precise sort 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 shaped a million words and I have sorted them, reformulating them - not merely to teach the English language but to describe the human soul, and to pressure that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Bullying 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

When I arrived in Europe on the 20th of June, 2011, I had no plan and certainly no idea that by the end of the week I would be practicing photography with a woman I had never met, a naturist who had never before allowed herself to be photographed nude. It was the first of a whole series of firsts for the both of us.

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.

I had grown up in America. Land of opportunity. I came of age in the booming 90s when everything was possible. She had grown up in Poland. She had come of age at a time when the Soviets were making sure that there wasn't even anything to eat in the country. I couldn't even properly translate the word "opportunity" into Polish.

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 Engine

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 engine in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Engine 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.

In the history of litigation, nobody had ever dared bring such a case before the International Court of Justice. The main reason was 'contributory negligence,' something which the defendants could easily plead, seeing as how few people could legitimately claim that they had never done anything to contribute to the world's air pollution. Here is where your grandfather's genius came through: he had never let your grandmother drive a car; she had never operated any kind of combustion engine; she had never even made a fire, having always cooked on electric stoves; she was immaculate, having spent most of her life in bed, never having owned a house, and therefore never having had to heat one with coal or gas - she was perfect.

Verse 60 from the chapter called Adolescence

By the time your father found the Internet, there were terrorists in Wroclaw. They were fighting elements of the 2nd Infantry Brigade and Silesian Air Squadron. The search engine's homepage was full of interesting information about terrorism: like, for instance, where to go in case of injury from terrorist attack, how to protect yourself and your beloved family from poison gas, what to do in case a terrorist comes crashing into your apartment, et cetera, et cetera. The only thing it didn't tell you is where the terrorists were - obviously, such information would be redundant if a terrorist were already crashing into your apartment, but if that terrorist were crashing into your neighbor's apartment, it might be helpful to know that. As it was, there was nothing: no information concerning the terrorists' whereabouts. They were in Wroclaw: that's all you needed to know. According to Lucius, we had already known that; we had let them in ourselves. In the end, it was all the same: after all, terrorists were everywhere.

Verse 744 from the chapter called Adolescence

We went to the other car; it was old and small, but had a diesel engine. Sitting inside, Jesus waited while the Krupnik painted. Using cans of spray paint, he changed his car's color from red to green. Then, removing his license plate, he placed it inside his trunk and found somebody else's (probably someone who was dead). This one he attached.

Verse 90 from the chapter called Arms

For generations before that tragic explosion (and the other one that followed it), the use of fossil fuels on Earth had been, generally speaking, limited. Subject to strict regulation and prohibitive taxation, most of it had gone to the planet Mars, the cost of transport being cheaper for oil than for any other potential source of energy, and, thanks to general tax relief and subsidies for processes like coal liquefaction, this export of fossil fuels was actively encouraged. When Yellowstone exploded, this trend was immediately reversed: export was discouraged while taxation and restrictions for consumption on Earth were quickly repealed. This move was meant to help the unfortunate ones who either needed a fast and easy source of energy or heat or else required the speed and mobility that oil and gas fueled internal-combustion engines offered. These people were not just Americans; they lived all across the globe - a globe now darkened by layers upon layers of atmospheric haze that made large photovoltaic power systems, based upon thousands of silicon and gallium arsenide solar cells, incapable of meeting the urgent energy needs of a suffering planet. Fossil fuel consumption was allowed to grow despite the knowledge that fossil fuel emissions would only make the Earth's atmosphere even more unclean.

Verse 6 from the chapter called Security

He was wrong. Maybe if he had rolled up the corner of the tarp that was not on the side of the exhaust pipe, we would've had some fresher air. As it was, the fumes collected around us. The diesel engine was loud. I would've slept despite the noise (and the bumps in the road) but I was scared. I thought of the Commandant's sister-in-law and her children. They died from carbon monoxide poisoning. They died in their sleep. Their mother had thrown coal into her kitchen furnace, then opened it. She died. Her children died.

Usage of Engine 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.

A beautiful word. Uncompromising beauty. Show no fear upon that - how shall we say? - unwelted brow. The lights momentarily dimmed. Do they pay you homage? Are they apologizing for blinding you? The engine stalled. Luka forgot to put his foot on the clutch. Good work. Let's try not to be so obvious.

Usage of Engine 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.

As soon as Luka was done, he left the woman alone on the Bagatelle. He walked back to the car. The passenger-side door was open. The engine was running. The lights were on. Nike was still passed out in the back seat.

Luka climbed inside. He shut the door. He put the car in gear. He drove.

– from “Paris Is For Rapists, Too,” a ghost story featuring a frank discussion of the Bois the Boulogne

Shephard gave her a hard look. Pepsi stared back at him. Her eyes, he thought, are big and brown. They're beautiful.

Shephard started the engine. "Your father misses you," he said.

Pepsi gulped. "I know."

"You should think about going home."

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring a man who doesn't think he makes mistakes

The headlights dimmed. Were they paying her homage? Were they apologizing for blinding her? The engine stalled. The car came to a creaking halt. Nike whispered to himself, "Now, now, Luka. Let's not be so obvious."

– from “Paris Is For Rapists, Too,” a ghost story featuring a frank discussion of the beautiful people of France

The sun glared. The wind picked up. Pepsi stood. Shephard sat. The engine panted.

Shephard looked down. He started turning the bike backwards. Halfway through the turn, he stopped. He caught Pepsi's eyes. She held them.

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring a bunch of camels

All of a sudden, the motorcycle jerked. Shephard felt an onset of dread. The engine was going to stall. He checked behind him. It was clear. The bike was slowing down. He had no choice. He stopped. The engine stalled. "Damn it," he cried. He got off. He leaned the bike to its side. Fuel from the cut-off compartment sloshed toward the petcock valve. He lifted up the frame. He got on. The humvee crashed past the dune behind him. He kicked the starter. Nothing. He tried again. His heart dropped into his pants. One more time-the engine sparked. The tires kicked up sand.

Usage of Engine 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.

Orbitz Number One left. Orbitz Número Dos took a long look at Orbitz Nombre Trois. "The radiation on that swab," he said. "It matches the molecular composition of the ship's engine. I'm the saboteur. The creature called me on the intercom right before the engine blew. She wanted to know why I locked her in the gallery. Except I didn't remember doing it."

Orbitz Nombre Trois gave Orbitz Número Dos a short glance. He looked back at the body. "You take the legs," he said. "I'll take the arms. We need to get him to port side airlock."

– from “The Death and Life of Captain Orbitz,” a science fiction romance in the tradition of Stanislaw Lem, if you know who that is

I got out. I shut the door. I walked to the porch. Indiana turned the car around. I watched her roll it to the end of the driveway. The turn signal blinked. It was bright red. The engine howled. Gravel churned beneath tires.

Mark and Bill meanwhile were flipping through their respective letters. Mark looked up and caught sight of the old man bending over again and looking through his viewfinder. Mark sped up. He was going to get a glimpse of the eagle before it flew off. He floored the gas. Oblivious to the dangers beyond, he was rushing past the hedgerow. He craned his neck and saw a giant blue and white eagle on the side of Bill's truck. The professor hit the shutter button. Mark frantically swerved. The camera's continuous drive clicked and clicked. Mark hit the brakes. The truck slid heading straight for the professor. Its wheels locked. It surfed on the unswept gravel of the westbound lane of Profile Road and thankfully stopped before crossing the center line. Just as a UPS truck headed east. The driver saw the mass of white coming from his left and instinctively swerved away. Right into the professor. The old man was launched into the sky. Mark watched in horror as the body sailed a good 60 feet before flailing onto the ground. Mark looked at the UPS truck. The driver was paralyzed. Mark looked back at the body. He drove the 60 feet between them. There was no time to run. Reaching the remains of the professor, Mark curbed the wheels. He put the gear in park. He pulled the hand brake. He shut the engine and took out the keys. He didn't want anybody accusing him of not following proper dismounting procedures. He hopped down to the body and saw there was little to be done. He called for an ambulance.

– from “Wrong Again,” a success story to teach children about physical stuff that may or may not work

"The mission failed," said Orbitz Número Dos. "An intruder was aboard. He sabotaged the ship as soon as we were clear of the wormhole. The whole engine blew. Most of the ship fell into the gas giant. The rest fell back into the singularity."

"Who's the saboteur?"

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

Titan's reign as the premier scientific facility in the inner solar system had showered young Pfizer T. Microsoft with a mythic sense of destiny. His great-great-great-grandfather was part of the team that had pulled the errant moon away from the clutches of its gas giant back when man's mastery of gravity was still in its infancy. It didn't matter to Pfizer that his grandfather had been more or less a sanitation engineer. He had traveled across the branes on a trip to Andromeda. To survive one plunge in a tesseract was to be lucky. His grandfather survived three. He was nearly a thousand earth years old when he retired to Peoria. The meager savings he had invested prior to his first departure had with compound interest mushroomed to the fortune that had funded two of Pfizer's three graduate degrees. Pfizer owed the old man a post on Titan.

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.
