True, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's kicking around the possibility of strengthening his cavernous Fiction Corpus with a treatise on classic science fiction; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't doubt the prospect of exercising English as a global lingua franca. I don't believe in the regular plan by which the English tongue is presented for study.Pointer

Perfecting a person's intimacy with a language isn't like bringing about a bigger dam. A language - a spoken language - is not just a tool that you can teach yourself to wield with a greater amount of precision. A common language can not be disengaged from the competing values of a clan 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.

Teaching a pupil to recite English is to deprive him of its cultural context. A capable teacher has to create a strategy for introducing it; the bravest student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe words on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of writing of various size and consistency. This corpus can contain anything from a book about literature to some real adventure stories. I lost many a night developing my "stupendous" Fiction Corpus in order to form a different type 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 molded a million words and I have investigated them, reframing them - not merely to teach American vocabulary but to promote the human spirit, and to provoke that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word True

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 true in some kind of way.

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

Usage of True 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 morning, on the third day of the pilgrimage, there was mist. A ring of mist encircled us and prevented us from seeing farther than one kilometer in any given direction. The priests took advantage of this natural phenomenon to meditate on the presence of God, especially the way in which He accompanied Israel on her sojourn through the desert. Jesus meditated on his destiny, his true mother's identity, his oath to his father, and, above all, Zoe's role.

Verse 747 from the chapter called Security

After the spaceport was recaptured, terrorists appeared in the Polish city of Poznan, which lies east of Berlin and directly north of Treblinka and the city of Wroclaw. This development was not unexpected, but, considering recent developments, people wondered whether a connection might exist between the failed attempt at lift-off on the part of the captured Martian terrorist and the sudden eastward expansion of the continental terrorist war, possibly toward the nearest spaceport after Kummersdorf, located a few miles south of Warsaw, directly to the east of Poznan. If that were true, perhaps Wroclaw would be spared from terrorist attacks, people said. All the time, they talked about Zeus and the captured Martian terrorist: his failed attempt at lift-off.

Verse 686 from the chapter called Adolescence

Everyone thought your father was in trouble, but nobody said a goddamn thing. What were they going to do? Call him a Communist? I was very proud. We had done a brave thing: we had learned the true words and we had sung them - your father had sung them, loud and clear - but those who were brave had whispered: they had shown their allegiance to the warrior of truth, even though none of us had any idea what those true words had meant. We did it for the sake of truth - for the sake of truth and solidarity.

Verse 117 from the chapter called Childhood

"Would he hurt you?"

"Not with his claws, but people feared his tongue: his black tongue, which people said was the tongue of death. If he licked you with it while you were awake, they said your skin would burn off."

"Uh-uh."

"If he licked you in the face and you accidentally looked into his eyes, they said your whole head would burst into flame."

"That's not true."

"That's what people said: they said if you woke up in the morning after sleeping by the fire and your face was wet, it was the Lonely Planet who licked it, and you were gonna die by midnight no matter what."

"That's bogus."

"That's what I said. 'Cause you're right: it's not true."

"It's not?"

"No. The Lonely Planet is a ghost wolf, but he's not a bad wolf: he's a good wolf."

"He is?"

"Yeah: but people don't believe it."

Verses 166-177 from the chapter called Childhood

"God knew His servant was remiss: in granting my wish - my request for a sibling! - He knew I could only pay Him with ingratitude. He sends me a sister and I send her back! What wretched curse behooves my soul? Must I have chosen such a destiny? What fate conspires with wolves and dogs to make me find your broken neck? O wretched curiosity! (whose boon for Man far outstrips its bane!) Why sniff? So many things can be poison! What sensations must have twirled around your virgin head! They drove you to the open window - for air, no doubt (even though its unadulterated nourishment has long been lacking). What confusion must have taxed your noble mind, which only hours before had entertained simple thoughts of worship. 'Holy Mary! Mother of God!' you had said. 'Pray for us sinners: now and at the hour of our death.' She was waiting for you, child! You are with her now in heaven: with our Holy Mother Mary! God bless you, child! You are the instrument of my reformation! The lamb of my destiny! Tell your heavenly hosts that I remember: I have taken to heart - I understand this cryptic reminder of theirs. For too long have I lived in the company of dogs and wolves without lifting a finger in the face of their lies and confabulations. When I asked for you, beloved sister, I was devoted to the truth. We had sung the true words: this land is your land, we had sung. This land is my land. Fate will have to find all those wolves and dogs who conspired against you, child. My punishment has already been paid. There is no greater penalty for a lonely shepherd than his one and only lamb. But when your enemies meet their ends, beloved child, they will not have met a lonely shepherd, but an angry shepherd in wolf's clothing.

Usage of True 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.

We were true scholars in the ancient sense of the term: we were both poor and rich - temporarily dispossessed - but all of us were lucky members of a prosperous guild, in possession of its own schola no less, and, in that apartment of ours, we engaged in all manner of business and festivity, according to our trade. Our particular guild, our personal collēgia, was devoting itself to a fabulously paradoxical craft. We became quite skilled in those days: working and resting, meticulously building up our minds and then blowing them away. Like Martial, we were men of perverted talents. We were philosophers contemplating the clouded mind; we were poets of confusion, lovers of obscenity.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 6, Doing Business, Paragraph 7

NIKE: Yeah, but the opposite's not true: that's the freaky thing. Because the queen: she holds all the sperm in her little sack, and she can decide which of her babies are boys by holding back the juice. But sometimes, the worker bees develop their own organs, and they become like secondary queens. Now most of their babies are male, but, like, one percent or something become female. Now what's up with that?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 13, Discussing the Birds and the Bees, Paragraph 21

I had not discussed my arrival with him, but, on the other hand, I hadn't talked to Luke in weeks, and there I was in his bathroom - all despite the fact that I treat Luke like a dog, whereas Nike and I hold each other in the greatest of confidence. But, I suppose, maybe that was the reason for my being there: imposing on Luke. I had planned to bring a bottle of Belvedere for Nike; I had promised it for him and I had yet bought it. I guess I thought that if I had gone straight to Nike's house, I would never have left. But that's not very true now, is it? I did end up leaving.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 2, Letting It Steam, Paragraph 2, Clauses 7-12

I shudder to think of my crude opinion, which now understands that Mr. Macy Williamson was either an actor who did not perform for an audience of one, or else he valued our uncommon intimacy enough to spare me his artifice. If the latter was true, then I was too jealous to understand the compliment.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 5, Falling in Love, Paragraph 5, Clauses 6-9

But even if that were true - and I suspect it is - luckily for everyone, it doesn't necessarily make Luka a stooge - at least not in the sense that we enjoy when we are in the States and 'blessed' with Luke's company. Let's not beat around the bush: Luke is a total stooge. But if Luka is being somehow manipulated by his cousin-in-law, Nike, and this partnership doesn't prove as equitable as he might expect, it will only prove Luka half a stooge. As long as he's capable of insulting Nike to his face, and of doing it effectively, he'll never be a total stooge.

Bullets whizzing by a statue of Nikola Tesla

It was an admirable idea. Patsy explained that though it were possible, even if it were true, it meant he could have been anywhere except perhaps the desert. "Even there I think they have television. I'll look into it."

– from “A Cop Named Patsy,” a funny story featuring a guy who gets his kicks in a really weird way

Junior collapsed. He beat the ground with his fists. He couldn't believe his joy. Nyota shed a tear. Junior looked up at her. He climbed to his feet. "It's a miracle," he cried.

They embraced. Junior twirled Nyota around. He set her down. She cupped his face with her hands. She whispered, "Nicky, what would we have done if we had lost?"

– from “A Horse Named Clutch Bag,” an inspiring story featuring true love

"Good," cried Manfredo. "You have three things in common." Everybody laughed.

"That's not true," said Lando. "I'm not Neapolitan." Again, everybody laughed.

"Queen Giovanna should do like the last Queen Giovanna," said somebody else. "If she opened a whorehouse for all three popes, imagine how rich she would be."

Kwon continued. "The next day, it came. It was covered in mud. It wore a hideous mask of claws. It showed me what it wanted with its hands. I realized it had found the child. It had eaten it. Now it hungers for more." Bei shook her head. She couldn't believe what she was hearing. Her gut told her it had to be true.

– from “How Tae & Bo Took Over the World and Kung & Fu Didn't,” an apocryphal bible story featuring twelve people who end up mating

Junior shouldn't have been surprised. Middle-aged matrons masquerading as sex maniacs do not marry men who have not yet come into their inheritance. Everybody knows that. Seeking refuge among women he would never want to marry, Junior's career took a significant slide.

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.

ALICE: No.

FLETCHER: Good. If they were, I don't know what I'd do. I think I'd die.

ALICE: It's not heaven.

FLETCHER: Are you sure?

ALICE: I'm positive.

FLETCHER: How am I supposed to know? I've never set foot beyond these waters.

ALICE: An island is not all that different from a city. Most of what you need is within walking distance. Even here, you have taxis.

FLETCHER: That's true.

ALICE: You bump into people you know. You're surrounded by strangers.

FLETCHER: We like to call them 'pirates with cameras.'

– ACT I, lines 470-479

MS. JACKSON: I will go insane if I don't find out.

GREY GOOSE: It's all very simple. These two have been running a racket: a confidence game. Kokomo plays the prostitute, whose story is so ridiculous it must be true. Finding out for oneself is the challenge. If she's the best lay in the South Pacific, one should know the difference.

FLETCHER: Satisfaction guaranteed.

GREY GOOSE: Cash comes rolling in.

MS. JACKSON: I don't understand. What happens when-

FLETCHER: By the time they get to bed, they think she's a charity case.

GREY GOOSE: She vomits on them and that's it.

MS. JACKSON: Vomits?

FLETCHER: It turns me off.

MS. JACKSON: How?

– ACT II, lines 431-440

LUKE: Why not? You've lived in peace for so long.

FLETCHER: If by peace you mean we've committed just about every crime except murder.

ALICE: Is that true?

MS. JACKSON: My son likes to exaggerate.

FLETCHER: Consider it. In a community of such close quarters with nowhere to go, the only thing you can't ignore is a dead body. Besides that, anything goes.

MS. JACKSON: Feel free to ignore my son's imagination.

FLETCHER: The next time I'm selected for a jury, I'm not going to lie when they ask me if I've ever been accused or been the victim of a crime.

ALICE: You lied?

FLETCHER: I said no.

MS. JACKSON: When have you been the victim of a crime?

– ACT I, lines 112-121

(MS. JACKSON exits.)

KOKOMO: Oh, bittersweet news! That I might have my mistress's blessing to wed her son - her firstborn and only son: her pride and joy - and make a Catholic out of a Christian, when she knows her line - her ancient English stock - would rest entirely in my womb, fills me with great joy; but since that stock, if Madam's fears be true, is filled with an urge to plant one's seed in every jar and hole - to roam rakishly over the countryside regardless of warmth at home - I must gird myself to the possibility that my loins will not be enough: that fear of the yoke will upset my plan to reveal with success this very night my feelings to my beloved Fletcher!

– ACT II, line 28

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.

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

Branca lives in California now with her husband. Her old torch-bearer, Fr. Rebelo, lives outside Boston. I'm not sure when they last saw each other but it couldn't have been long ago. Rebelo does weddings for the family. He just did one for Lima child number ten. I don't remember any of their names. In fact, old Sir Lima announced at that wedding that henceforth a Lima marriage would not be valid unless performed by Rebelo. That's one of those chummy deals that's kept Hong Kong in business through the ages.

– from “Beautiful Branca,” a true story that has a few facts mixed up as far as I can tell

On the next day one of the old men was back. I asked him to come inside but he stayed at the window. He wanted to know where I was from. I gave him a brief history of my country and we started arguing over European aid to Africa and whether the Soviet Union was right to have ever been there. It seemed like no matter what I said I was wrong. At least the man treated me like a civil human being. Until he got angry with me and left. I went back to teaching my imaginary class.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that isn't factual and yet is very true no matter who you are

I swatted away my mother's hand. Like I would a bug. That's when she threw the remote control. It was the prelude to an all out attack. All of a sudden I was in middle school again. The wimpy Indian kid I had made fun of in music class had come to punch me in the face again. No pain. Just shock at the sheer audacity of it.

If my wife had been present during the incident she would've been on my side. Instead she's against me. All because of a four letter word. Rape.

– from “The Backed-Up Toilet,” a literature story based on true events as I lived them

The beautiful Branca was the first child born to Sir Lima. The first of ten. I'm sure she was and remains his pride and joy. I wouldn't know. I've never met the man. Or Branca. Everything I know about her and her family comes from the boy who lived down the street from them. The boy who grew up to be a priest. A professor. The boy who to this day at the sheer mention of the name Branca leans back his head, inserts hand into shirt and begins violently pumping the fabric as if pistons were about to explode through his chest. I wish he wouldn't do it. If he tears a hole in his shirt I won't buy him a new one. His tastes are too expensive. That's his Hong Kong upbringing. His vow of poverty hasn't done much to squash it.

Large Wall Art Depicting the Human Landscape

Life is a spinning sphere with Joy at one pole and Sadness at the other. Each continuously feeding its pair. Joy flanked by the emotions of Trust on one side, Surprise on the other. Trust leading to Anticipation; anticipation leading to Fear. Surprise leading to Disgust; disgust leading to Anger. Anger and Fear fueling our Sadness. Sadness giving way, in time, to Joy; through Hope, an orientation towards Love. Love, an openness towards Joy, Trust and Surprise; the sum of emotion; emotion amplified by others. Multiplied and divided, in equal parts. Such that to those from whom it has been subtracted, we must add. Until we are whole.
