Truth, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal declines to debate the concept of extending his hefty Fiction Corpus with yet another comic book; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I believe in the feasibility of employing English as a common language for the world. I do doubt the tepid game plan by which the English language is taught.Pointer

Strengthening one's skillfulness with a language isn't like introducing a more secure lock. A language - a spoken tongue - is not just a tool that you can learn to manipulate with a greater amount of precision. A living language cannot be dissected from the philosophical currents of a tribe of people 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 people recite English is to cheat them out of its cultural context. An informed educator has to develop a strategy for introducing it; the wisest student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe words on the basis of a particular corpus, a set of written works of varying size and consistency. Such a corpus can contain everything from a book about literature to some real horror stories. I suffered many a sleepless night creating my "lowly" Fiction Corpus in order to form a peculiar kind 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 molded a million words and I have ordered them, reframing them - not simply to teach an American language but to defend the human soul, and to provoke that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Truth

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 truth in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Truth 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.

"Who am I?" asked Stalin.

"You're a man with information."

"That's it?"

"You're a man who's telling the truth."

"So what?"

Verses 52-56 from the chapter called Security

"You're a very beautiful woman," I said.

"That's not what I mean."

"That's the truth."

She sighed. "No, it's not."

"You don't believe anything I say, do you?"

"Who are you?" she whispered.

Verses 511-516 from the chapter called Bohemia

When the press began to say that Jesus's Confederation was based on Cathedral Island, Jesus did nothing to dispute it. The error was built on already existing confusion; Jesus didn't need to add to it. Besides, anyone who cared knew that Jesus had blocked off Sand Island, not the territory around the Cathedral. Nevertheless, the error stood. Your father liked to indulge it. Using a sawed-off bed-knob as a mace, Jesus wielded it the way field commanders of the Old Republic had once deployed their troops: by swinging it forward, left and right, always with a firm flick of the wrist, like the parish priest or bishop who blesses his congregation with holy water. Jesus used it whenever his officers met with him to discuss further operations. Inside the sacristy of the Blessed Virgin Mary's church, they would come to look at their biggest map, which had all of their troop positions marked. They kept it locked in a cupboard with other sensitive information, and, when they met, Jesus used his mace to point things out; he would bang the table with it. Jesus's men soon began to call him 'Bishop.' Your father had chosen the mace for its ancient distinction (Jesus felt like the primeval warrior), but the truth was (as Jesus seemed to remember it from his father's books) that the mace had indeed been carried into battle by medieval bishops, who had been barred from the use of swords for some ecclesiastical reason. Anyway, the name was apt. Jesus became the Bishop of Cathedral Island, leader of Confederate troops fighting for truth. Your father embraced his new surname, particularly because it captured his spiritual leadership, which he consciously, though somewhat erratically, pursued. The word was ancient. Most importantly of all, it punctuated his separate identity, the superiority of his office, the remoteness of his character, and, most unnervingly of all, Jesus's growing detachment.

Verse 474 from the chapter called Arms

So it was that Jesus became the Lonely Planet, the object of secrecy, malice, and awe; the man whose power was almost supernatural; the man who came from nowhere and ripped a man's neck in half - tore his head off completely with his bare teeth, as people later claimed. Only Jesus's men knew the truth. They kept it well hid. For everyone outside his circle, Jesus was mysterious, unknown and unknowable. Like God, his power was immense. He seemed invincible.

Verse 416 from the chapter called Arms

Nobody cared, especially not me or my family, not my friends or my school. There was only one thing I remembered about that war: my third grade class made ceramic medals for the soldiers. Mine said: FIGHTERS OF TRUTH! On the back it said: COME HOME! Your father's medal said: JOIN THE NATION! On the back it said: GOD MADE AMERICA FOR ME!

Verse 131 from the chapter called Childhood

Usage of Truth 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.

That way, when the time was right, I was able to bring up the fact that when I was in the third grade, I had accidentally stabbed myself in the forehead with a pencil, and that this had left a permanent deposit of graphite in my forehead. I told Luca that she could easily find it, but she said she couldn't see it because she didn't have her glasses on. So she put them on, and with those gigantic monstrosities over her eyes, she began studying my forehead. And she kept looking and looking, because the truth was that in third grade I had stabbed my cousin with the pencil, and it was his forehead carrying the graphite. And how mad he was when he found out: because Luca no longer believed either of us, and she absolutely refused my cousin to look at his forehead. And that victory was the occasion for this photograph. I was gloating so badly I had no trouble parting with the money. And these little postcards were very expensive back then. I sent this one to my relatives in Romania; they were neighbors with Indiana's family - and you know what? She stole this from their house when she was eight years old - kept it locked in a box under her bed. Isn't that just incredible? I still don't believe it. And do you know why I keep these two photographs together? Because this isn't just a picture of a poodle: this is actually a portrait of Indiana. Do you see the resemblance?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 8, Financial Instruments, Paragraph 18, Clauses 17-28

If some fight for true freedom was quietly smoldering within me, it was no match for the task at hand; my silly imaginings notwithstanding, the success of that task was still the foremost hope of my mind - because the truth was easily acceptable: we were just walking down the alley as watchfully as possible; we were taking in the surroundings, carefully passing by the plain backs of London buildings, looking for a place to smoke weed. And finally, we found it.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 14, Referencing the Past, Paragraph 14

Oh, but I must be careful not to upset with my words, lest I make a harmful and lasting impression. But there is nothing lovely for me to say - whereas your words: oh, you must know how tender your words were in reading, how generous your counsel. For the fact that it came too late to be of proper use, too late to be appropriate, I cannot be more sorry. How I wish I could be contemplating adultery right now; I want to be entertaining the smallest possibility of a civil divorce, and not the definite burden of this mortal one. But Albert does lie before me dying: that truth is undeniable.

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

The truth is: I was there in the same way that I've always been there. It was my dream - of course I was there. I just wasn't aware of myself because the dream did not concern me, and the action was too oppressive to allow for self-reflection. After all, I was seeing everything. I just wasn't thinking about myself being there. Except at one point, when I saw things from Nike's perspective. But then, I didn't feel myself being me, I felt like I was being Nike, which is something completely different.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 4, The Fourth Day, Part 1, Our Constitution & Constitutional Reform, Section 1, Losing Oneself, Paragraph 5

NIKE: He calls himself a man because he is great and powerful, but you would not know him for what he is. You would be cowed.

BIT: We do not like your insolence.

NIKE: I only speak the truth...and if the woman Basha has been raped by one of yours, the penalty will be swift and great.

BIT: We do not know this Basha.

NIKE: You are lying.

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.

Ferrari, meanwhile, with the stench of spirits on his breath, went to his old home. Assuming the voice of his father, he shouted, "Lothario! Come here and set the kettle." As Ferrari stumbled about the dark hall, his brother tended the fire.

– from “Italy Sucks and Has Sucked For A Long Time,” an adventure story featuring the hard truth

Tatum groped her way through the corridor. Her hands were shaking. She stopped. She took a moment to breathe. She calmed herself. There is no great conspiracy, she thought. All she had to do was confront Neal. He would tell her the truth. He would explain the note. It would be nothing. She had the PDA. What was there to fear?

– from “Dirty Manga People Are Disgusting,” a spooky story featuring the dark side

Gog knew she spoke the truth. His consort was swayed, like many women, by complex emotions. Never before had he met one so well attuned to them. At the same time, Gog saw the error behind the eloquence.

– from “In the Beginning, There was Gog,” a fantasy story featuring blood

His stepmother had no choice but to blame Manfredo. Over the next few weeks, Ferrari was kind enough to take over his brother's duties, only as far as concert playing was concerned. "Until he recuperates," he told his stepmother. He gave her a handful of carlini.

"Thank you," she said. The look of gratitude on her face was priceless.

Usage of Truth 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.

MS. JACKSON: What about my heirloom?

GREY GOOSE: What heirloom?

MS. JACKSON: The one you stole.

GREY GOOSE: I didn't steal anything.

MS. JACKSON: Don't lie to me.

GREY GOOSE: I didn't.

LESBIAN: I did. I packed it away in my bag. I have two tickets for tonight's flight: one for me and one for you. Come. We'll explore the world as your ancestors did: the English and the Polynesians. They went from west to east; we'll go from east to west. We'll show the lost and the lovelorn what true devotion means. We'll scale Victory Peak in China. We'll sail the Punjab. We'll get lost in Gargas Cave. We'll bathe in the hot springs beneath Mount Hekla. We'll catch a Broadway show. We'll do some shopping at Shinjuku Station. We'll do anything your heart desires. All you have to do is liberate yourself. Let your passions run free. Someday we'll return to your native land. It won't ever be the same again. Nevermore will you be shamed. Woman, you'll have made the entire world yours.

MS. JACKSON: Nameless Pain! How am I to deny a penitent husband - newly birthed in remorse, in truth, in love, and desirous of similar gifts from me, his lawfully wedded wife, who, for so long, and with so many tears, kept watch over this heretofore seemingly endless and vain gestation - yet relish this sudden appearance of life: this infant curiosity: this foundling whose love demands more than my adoption could ever give? Oh, Homo: a thousand hearts couldn't beat as strongly as you have made mine beat. This is my home. I can no sooner leave it than change my body for that of a man. The world is yours; go out there and take it. Please leave me in peace. I beg you.

LESBIAN: I'll go. Though it pains me more than female circumcision, I'll go. I'll go because I love you.

– ACT II, lines 357-365

(MS. JACKSON enters.)

MS. JACKSON: How are you coming along?

KOKOMO: I'm almost done with the floor.

MS. JACKSON: Excellent. Do you mind if I help?

KOKOMO: Not at all.

MS. JACKSON: Can you believe my husband's charity? In trying to lighten your load, he increases it ten-fold.

KOKOMO: I'm sure he meant well.

MS. JACKSON: As every man always does. I'm sorry. I didn't come to complain. I want to apologize to you personally for not being a better employer.

KOKOMO: You haven't been bad, Ms. Jackson.

MS. JACKSON: Don't lie. I know I could've been much better to you. The truth is I haven't wanted to be: not since the day I hired you. I don't know if you can understand this. I saw so much of myself in you. I hated it - not because it was a bad thing - because it was good. The things I saw in you were things about me that I felt had never been properly appreciated. I permitted my resentment to stand in the way of my great admiration. I abused you. I'm sorry. Please accept my apology.

– ACT II, lines 4-12

GREY GOOSE: I've waited long enough, woman. I deserve an answer.

MS. JACKSON: I will not answer you.

ALICE: Why not?

GREY GOOSE: She's guilty.

MS. JACKSON: I've done nothing wrong.

GREY GOOSE: Swear to it.

ALICE: There's no reason not to tell the truth.

GREY GOOSE: Unless you're a rat.

ALICE: Remember what I told you. There are three things which everybody is owed: honesty, gratitude, and remorse. As my grandmother taught me, one must say, 'Thank you,' and 'I'm sorry,' and, by gosh, one has to mean it. If you've had cause to hurt somebody, you should tell that person you're sorry and you'll try to make sure it never happens again. Unless you know it will - in which case, you recognize that something is difficult. If it's something to which your partner is contributing, you make a resolution to cooperate on that. Eventually, things work out. If you've done nothing wrong, you thank your partner for his interest, humbly deny any involvement, and proceed to send him off on his merry way. I took marriage lessons with Luke for a year. They were quite helpful.

MS. JACKSON: Thank you.

– ACT I, lines 1101-1110

(KOKOMO exits in a rush.)

FLETCHER: Go.

ALICE: Should I tell her you love her?

FLETCHER: Tell her you have small feet.

ALICE: Have I small feet?

FLETCHER: Never mind. Tell her the truth.

ALICE: We were only rehearsing.

FLETCHER: It was all for the sake of art.

ALICE: I'll show her the script.

FLETCHER: Are you mad? She'll see all the other kisses.

– ACT II, lines 220-228

(ALICE exits.)

KOKOMO: Yet again, I'm left holding the wet, dirty towels. Not to worry. It's alright. I don't mind. In truth, if I could spend the rest of my life cleaning up after Fletcher Christian, I would be a very happy woman. Even if that is silly and backwards, that's how I feel. I would never phrase it like that to anybody; I'm not crazy. I'd make him take out the garbage and all that. Alice is right. It's high time I told him how much he makes my heart beat. I could turn it into a joke if it looks like he's uncomfortable. That would be dreadful. What kind of a joke would it be? I need a heart transplant? That's not funny. What am I going to do?

MS. JACKSON: Kokomo!

KOKOMO: Of course: the laundry.

Usage of Truth 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.

I killed my sister. I live with it. I killed her because she loved the enemy a little too much. She lost herself in that love. That's why she wanted to die. When I tell people the truth they treat it like it's a joke. Like I'm saying she walked into my knife. I did kill her. I've never denied it. I stabbed her. My arm came down upon her. I put the blade into her heart. That's where she needed it.

I'm not a bad man.

Steve O learned the truth on the fifth date. Adam brought Steve O home. He introduced him to his fiance. He was marrying a man. The invitations had been sent out. Months ago.

Pfizer rushed to his lab. He stood in front of something beautiful. His jars of microbes. If only he could spot the little miracles with his naked eye. He wondered if it would make a difference.

Large or small, civilized or not, life was constantly surrounded by waste.

Are you a eunuch?

The art show that defies abuse

St. Sebastian

Wall art symbolizing strength and protest

St. Sebastian was a member of the Roman Emperor's praetorian guard who had the audacity to teach Christian values while on the job. I think active duty American military men and women who don't vote or who don't publicly express a political opinion because of the uniform are either being idiotic or are being cowed by the threat of punishment from a superior. Either way, they're eunuchs. My purpose in creating the St. Sebastian Series is to put the flesh and face of the true soldier front and center. The good soldier puts his mission ahead of himself. He often ends up dead. The true soldier knows a bad mission when he sees one and he isn't afraid to say it. Saint Sebastian was not a cow, despite what clever people would have you believe. Saint Sebastian is a patron saint for all protestors who face the arrows of the mob for speaking out.
