War, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal declines to debate the potential of supplementing his gigantic Fiction Corpus with a rehashing of the bible story; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't challenge the possibility of enacting English as humanity's second language. I do challenge the vapid blueprint with which the English language is taught.Pointer

Polishing a person's artfulness with a language isn't like developing a more secure lock. A language is not just an instrument that you can learn to exploit with a greater amount of precision. A spoken language can't be unyoked 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.

To make pupils recite English is to rob them of its cultural context. A capable instructor must develop a technique for introducing it; the smartest pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe a language based on a specific corpus, a set of written language of various scope and consistency. This corpus may contain anything from a biography of fiction authors to an entire set of drama plays. I lost many a sleepless night creating my "lofty" Fiction Corpus in order to form a peculiar genre 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 fashioned a million words and I have classified them, reframing them - not merely to teach an American tongue but to defend the human soul, and to pressure that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word War

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 war in some kind of way.

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

Usage of War 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 such a scenario, it seems entirely possible that the first prey might have been some kind of larger mammal. If such was the case, then the first hunter, using a fractured rock, might have procured for himself yet another weapon: a large bone, or, if his prey happened to be a bovid, a horn. However, considering the prevalence of other, more established predators, it seems entirely likely that man's awareness of large bones and their potential as weapons was, to a large extent, contemporaneous with his knowledge and use of sticks and stones. This presents an interesting question.

Verse 3 from the chapter called Arms

Jesus stopped reading. He laughed. He giggled. He took out the picture of his mother he always kept with him. He didn't look anything like her! He looked more like that woman on the Internet, next to whom, in the picture, his 'aunt' was standing. Jesus laughed. He started to cry. Looking at that picture of his 'mother' he held in his hand, he said, "You will always be my mother, no matter what." He cried for himself - what an idiotic person he was - then he laughed. He cried some more, but, afterwards, there was more laughter. Jesus didn't care anymore: he was too tired.

Verse 752 from the chapter called Adolescence

That took years to happen. In the meanwhile, your father sold boxes of silk stockings. Unlike the nylon stockings, and the cotton stockings, and the panty hose and tights, which your father's uncle bought by the scale along with everything else from the warehouse, silk stockings were delivered every week on Monday at precisely eight o'clock by a man named Baron Cohen-Krupnik. Every Monday at eight o'clock, your father stood outside the back room waiting for Mr. Baron Cohen-Krupnik to arrive.

Verse 195 from the chapter called Adolescence

Your grandfather started selling his books on the eastern side of Town Square, right in front of your great-grandmother's apartment building. There were other vendors on the western side selling fruit. None of them had licenses. Again, the shopkeepers called the police, who, after cracking down on peddlers along the town's main street, made it to Town Square and asked all of the fruit vendors to leave. One of them was fined for being troublesome. Then the police left. Afterwards, all the vendors came back.

Usage of War 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 was so drunk I fell backwards on the bed, finding even more sweetness in the sheets. I found so much, in fact, I began rolling around in them, twisting and laughing every time I pushed a new gust of fragrance into my face. I wanted to fall asleep and dream in those sheets, but I was too awake. And when I came back from the auction fiasco, I was insensibly drunk. So I blame Macy for leaving so much of himself in that room. And I blame myself for not spending more time with him there.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 9, Intoxication, Paragraph 4

My heart is ready to shatter: it has never been one for acrobatics and all this constant tumbling is making me sick. Can you not write something for me? something that will quiet my rumbling heart? It yearns to hear your true voice, and it cannot sustain itself on a few telephone calls. My heart will not respond to the tones of a magnetic diaphragm, even though my ear be fooled, and my mind be well aware that you, however indirectly, are in complete control of its vibrations. I hate telephones: they are diabolical; they steal one's voice and I will give them no more credit than they deserve. They are good for sharing nothing but the most basic information. So unless you have to tell me when to pick you up from the airport, you should think twice before bothering to call me.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 8, Loneliness, Paragraph 4

Now that I know that you and Indiana shared this weird moment so many years ago, all the other strange moments begin to seem almost natural. I used to give those oddities no other explanation but their own familiar pattern of incongruity; now that I know how they might involve you, they seem to fall naturally into place. The behavior that I used to ascribe purely to some sort of illogical mania now takes on the quality of pure logic. How else could such a woman try to seduce you?

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 5, Warts, Paragraph 1

So the industry makes a big deal out of its own accomplishments. That's why, if you're not a rose-grower you don't really hear about the Rose Selections. It's a niche market, which means that there's a steady audience, that certain people will always be buying roses: why should the judges be worried about what's going to be popular?" I told Macy that simplicity is a virtue, and if the Rose Selectors wish to commend a grower for developing an easy flower to grow, then it lies entirely within their prerogative. Nike agreed, pointing out that the Rose Selectors were judging roses, "not rose growers. If they were doing that, then maybe they'd give the award to someone who could successfully grow a difficult rose." Macy agreed that it was entirely natural for the judges to compliment a rose that was easy to grow. "But that's not my point. My point is: why isn't there a prize for rose growers? That kind of prize would reward merit, it would raise public awareness of these talented people and their art form, but it wouldn't serve the economy and therefore it would never be subjected to its forces." Nike stopped to consider this, but I already knew that Macy was mistaken. Not only was he being idealistic, he was being plain wrong. I asked him why he'd want to divorce prize-giving from the promotion of goods. What good would that serve? "It would serve the ideal," he replied; "it would preserve the purity of the prize itself." I turned away from him and stared in front of me. I told him he was being foolish; he was defining a prize as something periodically given by an institution to members of a select community. I told him to consider a prize given daily from one person to another; I told him to consider marriage. "Love," I said, "is a gift freely given, but marriage is a prize for which people apply, for which some qualify and some do not. Whoever be the judge, the prize is awarded on the basis of merit, and the banns of marriage proclaim the lucky victors. Do you think you can divorce marriage from its promotion of life? How fruitful is the marriage without children? Tell me honestly, is your ideal marriage incapable of producing children?" I did not turn to face him; instead, I got up and went for a drink.

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.

The officer pulled Clark out by his arm. Holding him close, he lowered his gun. Shephard crept forward. He asked Clark if he were alright.

"It's my pants I'm worried about. They'll never be clean again."

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring a frank discussion of what to do with a smelly camel

Shephard was speechless. The man nudged the weapon towards him. Shephard took it. He said, "Thank you." He found a way to climb to the roof. He crawled towards the edge. In the shade of a poplar tree, he watched his enemy fan out in the courtyard.

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring a frank discussion of the roots of terrorism

"Why don't we head towards the road?"

Shephard shook his head. "The road turned east when we went west. It could be fifty miles from here."

"Should we retrace our steps?"

"Call."

"What would I say?"

"It doesn't matter."

"It could cost me my job."

"You don't have to call the office."

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring sand

The creature paid the driver. It turned. It tossed its head. It was a woman-a gorgeous one. She was looking for a spot. Shephard sprang to his feet. He offered her his. The woman demurred. Shephard insisted. She waved her hand. Shephard took it. He pushed her into the seat. He turned. He politely asked the man on the other side of the aisle if he could move towards the window. The man refused. Shephard offered him money. The man shook his head. He offered him more. It worked.

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.

Usage of War 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 pulled up the hood of his skin-suit. Destiny lay aboard the Nautilus. Orbitz sputtered his way towards the stern of the ship. By the time he got to the airlock he could see the flashing red lights of an intruder alert. Marriott had done her job. Orbitz boarded the ship. He looked at the clock. There wasn't much time left before his bomb would explode. He headed carefully towards the gallery. He wasn't sure how this was going to happen. When he got to the hatch he saw Heather Mills. All eight of her legs were stretching to their limit. She was craning her head over the edge of the window, straining to see the Argo. She lifted herself a little higher with the hand bar. She dropped her doll. It didn't matter. She was fascinated by the ship's slow spinning descent. It was already transitting the planet. "That's why she doesn't see me," thought Orbitz. "She's distracted by the view. She knows there's an intruder but she's acting like nothing's wrong." Orbitz wondered for a moment if he had told himself too much. If Heather Mills might know what was happening. He tried to remember what he had told himself so many years ago. He smiled. He had mentioned the sauna. He had tried in vain to change his past. He had said go to the sauna. It was the one piece of the ship that went back in time. Heather Mills had read his mind on the bridge. That's why she was here. She had come to be next to the sauna. It was on the other side of the hall. Like a child she had been distracted. Orbitz realized his entire destiny pivoted on the childishness of this pathetic little girl. It made him give the lightest of chortles. Heather Mills jerked her head. She saw Orbitz's reflection in the dark part of the glass. Before she could turn around he had shut the hatch. He locked it. He turned and walked into the sauna.

– 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

When the Nautilus left orbit Orbitz shadowed it in the Argo. When the Nautilus turned off course and headed towards the tesseract the Argo turned too. It wasn't alone. On the opposite side of the Nautilus there was another Argo. It was may have been younger but it had the same shape. The same designation. The same frequency to its identification transmitter. The presence of the two identical ships seemed impossible. It confused the operators of the control station long enough to let all three ships pass into the tesseract. From that point on they couldn't be stopped. They passed through the singularity.

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

What was I talking about? Oh yeah. We were holy. The triplets. We Orazio brothers. The Orazi. And the other guys. The Curiazi. We had a mission. To stop the war between our two governments. It was fate. It was what we had to do.

– from “The Testament of Publio Orazio,” a horror story based on good intentions coming straight out of Roman mythology

I used my weekend to visit town. I bought a small grammar and books about local history and the Great Patriotic War. I also bought another box of chocolates.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that describes the human race wherever it tries to suvive

"As a three-quarter Austrian, it should be. As a quarter American, with a last name like Stewart, Andreas sounds silly."

"Too many 's's."

"Only the Italians spell the name without an 's.' Italian men are comfortable with their masculinity. They don't mind the English-speaking world thinking they're women."

"Calling you Nike is Andrea's revenge."

"It's short for Nikita."

"That's a beautiful name. It's not manly."

"It means 'unconquerable.'"

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that might ease one's fears depending on your outlook

Still Life, Patriarchy

Contemporary wall art to remind us that Father always says Father knows best

To promote democracy, the strong must empty themselves of their strength. The weak must be granted the opportunity to grow strong. We cannot force the end of patriarchy. To do so simply perpetuates feudalism under a different name.
