Trust, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal declines to weigh the notion of compounding his voluminous Fiction Corpus with a script for a science fiction podcast; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I have faith in the viability of honoring English as a worldwide lingua franca. I don't accept the ritualistically sanctioned steps through which the English language is presented for study.Pointer

Reinforcing a person's handiness with a language isn't like promoting a more comfortable bed. A language - a spoken language - is not merely a tool that you can learn to wield with a greater amount of precision. A spoken tongue cannot be unyoked from the professed knowledge 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 a pupil recite English is to strip her of its cultural context. An informed educator has to create a strategy for introducing it; the discerning pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe a language based on a specific corpus, a body of written language of varying scope and consistency. Such a corpus might contain anything from a book about literature to a bunch of adult fiction. I watched many nights pass creating my "extraordinary" Fiction Corpus to form a special type 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 assembled a million words and I have sorted them, reframing them - not just to teach the English tongue but to describe the human spirit, and to provoke that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Trust

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 trust in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Trust 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.

"No, you don't: you don't want to hear about it - trust me."

Verse 958 from the chapter called Security

"'Truly,' said the girl, 'my skin burns - but how can I trust you?'

"The Wolf said, 'Look into my eyes and let me lick your face.'

"The girl was frightened. 'If I let you lick my face,' she said, 'my whole head will burst into flame.'

"'On the contrary,' said the Wolf, 'your head will burn if you don't let me lick it; that is to say, you must trust me.'

"'So be it,' said the girl. She got down on her knees and looked into his eyes. The Lonely Planet licked her beautiful face with his black tongue. Nothing happened - her face was wet, but apart from that, nothing happened.

Verses 190-194 from the chapter called Childhood

You don't understand - but you will understand, my child. Your father is far away, but he is close. He is with your mother in space. They are far away. They orbit the sun around Pluto. Their bodies are machines that never break. Their bodies are machines! Their heads have been transplanted! But their thoughts are with you: they are with you. They love you. God loves you. Zeus does not. He is terrible. Do not trust him. He took your mother's head. He destroyed your father's body! AAAAAAHHHH!!! Sometimes my mind spits bile: pure vomit. It feels like

Verse 8 from the chapter called Invocation

Jesus hoped that Stalin's position in the army and, more importantly, his famous association with the Confederation would convince the board of directors to let him do whatever he wanted. After all, the future of the ruling party was at stake. If knowledge of this bribery and arms smuggling were - God forbid - ever to become public, the party would die. Their hopes of slowly rebuilding trust with this new Prime Minister's 'government of experts' by the time the next parliamentary elections took place would be quashed.

Verse 132 from the chapter called Security

"I trust you more than anyone."

"Then why don't you believe in me?"

"I can't," she said. "The odds are against it."

"Then tell me, Zoe: what are you going to do?"

Usage of Trust 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.

They were so careful as to seem casual. But they were not casual. They were deliberate. They placed me. They put me so high, so very high: right against her hip. I could feel her bone against my bone: my wrist against her hip - her strong hip, her proud hip, a child-bearing hip - oh what kind of hip was touching my hand? Could it be an honest hip? the kind I can trust? Or is it too fragile? close to breaking down? Is it? the bone? I pressed it. I pushed it, rubbing my wrist against it. I was communicating. I was saying hello. I pressed it again. What's your name, hip? Are you a good hip? I pressed it again, but this time, I held my pressure...then I let go. Then I pressed it again. This time, I held it even longer, and, when I let go, I waited. I waited for a while. And then, her hand responded. She gave me the answer. She said: yes! it's a good hip. Trust me: I know. Don't worry, she said. And she kept saying it. She was caressing my hand; she was barely moving it, but she was caressing.

NIKE: You don't have to trust anybody, unless you're thinking about distributing some product.

ANDY: Well, what's the product?

NIKE: Mead.

At least your little joke blew over their heads, and I have not yet given you away; rest assured: I have no plans to do so, and I doubt that anyone will be perusing Liszt's biography any time soon. But honestly, their daughter's name is Olympia, the girl whose musical education they have entrusted to you. Ah, but they would never appreciate the joke anyway; well, Albert would: it's right up his alley - but for Indiana? It's far too intellectual. I suppose that's why you didn't tell me: you wanted me to figure it out for myself. Well, it certainly was amusing after Mother began relating the story, when suddenly, upon realizing the implication, my initial resentment at being left in the dark began fueling an irrepressible chuckle.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 2, Finding Yourself in A Situation, Paragraph 3

NIKE: Hey, they like a good deal when they see one.

LUKA: He thinks he is making a good deal; I tell him he is crazy.

NIKE: Luka and I are going into business together. We're partners, aren't we?

LUKA: Don't touch me.

ANDY: So what's the deal?

NIKE: Oh, wouldn't you like to know?

LUKA: It is stupid; you don't want to know.

ANDY: Well, I wouldn't be surprised.

NIKE: Oh, thanks.

ANDY: But I don't know whom to trust.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 2, Introducing Male Friends, Paragraphs 38-47

There is no way to describe that final climb, those desperate tries at freedom - con brio - tickling heaven - only to fall back into the deep. How could one begin to interpret that terrible cascade? that beautiful, but tragic fall that leaves us with nothing but yearning: that final, definitive chromatic scale, rising out of nowhere to reach something no matter what the cost or consequence. How tragic. How beautiful. Trust me when I say that I gave it my best. I wrapped up Chopin's first scherzo with full and appropriate dramatic gusto. It was very dramatic - believe me: Indiana was clapping so long, I had to bow twice. And she was my only audience: nobody else was paying attention. I don't think they could even hear me that well from across the house. But Indiana was enraptured, and that was all I could ever need.

Tatum shut the door. She pressed the button to pressurize the chamber. The inner door opened. The man stepped to the window. He banged on it. The sheen of his visor gleamed. He pressed the button to depressurize. The inner seal began to close. Tatum stepped into its path. She couldn't block it forever. She would have to jam the door. Tatum unscrewed her helmet. She backed over the threshold. As the seal slid shut, Tatum positioned the helmet in its way. It stuck. It was holding. The motor strained. Tatum let go. The helmet budged. Tatum grimaced. It was too late. The helmet popped out. Horror took hold of Tatum's face. The seal was reestablishing itself. It would take moments for the air to clear.

Proctor called the cops. Even the captain showed up. They did a thorough search. They found nothing. The captain suggested leaving a patrol car. Proctor didn't like the idea. He didn't know who he could trust. Bob suggested he take Proctor's convertible for the night. "That way they won't think you're home," he said. "I'll pick you up in the morning. We'll have breakfast."

Proctor agreed. He threw Bob the keys. "It's out back," he said. Two minutes later an explosion rocked the neighborhood. The convertible was on fire.

"Not by itself," said Orbitz. "It has the maturity of a small child. It will always be like that. The princess was infected with a parasite during the pregnancy. It fused with her child's nervous system. From the belly up it looks like a little girl. Below it has the thorax, the legs, and the abdomen of a large spider. In the abdomen is a poison gland that can be removed surgically. Until then it must be cauterized daily. Its reproductive system cannot be removed. It produces parasites that infect pregnant humanoids. When it sees you onboard it will insist that you be infected." Sara Lee's chest heaved with apprehsion. Orbitz restrained her. "It will sense the child within you," he said. "If you go aboard the ship I am going to let it infect you, Sara Lee." Orbitz's voice almost broke. "I'm sorry for that," he said. "I've paid the price. I want you to know that our son will survive. He will be a beautiful baby boy. He will grow up to love his mother very much. I can't tell you how this is how going to happen. It would betray me to the creature. You have to trust me." Orbitz turned Sara Lee around to face him. "You don't have to go onboard the ship, beloved. You have a choice."

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.
