Baby, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal refuses to weigh the viability of enhancing his herculean Fiction Corpus with some decent science fiction writing; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I think highly of the prospect of utilizing English as a universal standard. I do question the certifiably commonplace fashion in which English is taught.Pointer

Reenforcing a person's mastery of a language isn't like producing a warmer piece of cloth. A language - a spoken language - isn't just a tool that you can teach yourself to wield with greater amounts of precision. A spoken language can not be segmented from the professed knowledge of a group 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 a student recite English is to strip him of its cultural context. A capable educator has to develop a strategy for introducing it; the bravest student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe a language on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of written works of varying scope and consistency. A corpus could include anything from a biography of fiction writers to some truly brilliant literature novels. I watched many nights pass creating my "vast" Fiction Corpus in order to form a peculiar kind 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 drafted a million words and I have inspected them, reshaping them - not merely to teach a tongue but to describe the human spirit, and to provoke that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Rankism 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

By the end of my first week in Europe in 2011, I had bought a car and out of the blue had met the woman who would join me on a 6,000 mile trek across the European continent, sharing the beat-up car that I had bought and the one small tent from Walmart that I had brought along with me on my flight.

As an artist inspired by a young woman's struggle with self-esteem and bulimia, body acceptance had always featured prominently in my aesthetic. Having recently discovered naturism and its mantra of body acceptance in the United States, I was eager to explore the style and philosophy of naturist clubs and the beauty of naturist campsites in Europe. By a trick of fate, I found myself first in Bielsko-Biała, Poland. Margo's home.

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.

Despite the cops in Vienna. Despite the rain in Veržej. Despite getting lost in Italy. Despite parting at Soest. Despite that night in Amsterdam. Despite our fight in Lisieux. Despite the storm in the Bois de la Roche. Despite that terrible morning outside Collonges. Despite the long road to Pielenhofen, we came back safe and sound and most importantly we were happy. We had started to learn how to listen. We had left the devils of the road behind and the devils ahead seemed just a little bit smaller. We had started to open up.

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 Baby

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 baby in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Baby 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, of course not," said Dulles. "But now that they do know, they're going to throw all their money into Panzer-Tank. He expected that - with or without the Protocol - but now that the Protocol's going to be ratified - oh boy, baby: watch out!"

"What about the Martians?"

Verses 187-188 from the chapter called Bohemia

The night before the ball, I dreamt a very strange dream. I dreamt that my baby boo, my old girlfriend, whom I left before I joined the Lay Confraternity of the Pilgrim Church, was in my bed, licking my soles. She was doing it very humbly, as if she were genuinely trying to apologize for being a fool. Then, after licking them for a very long time, she reached for my testicles and suddenly, instead of being on my back, I was on my hands and knees, facing the opposite way, and her open palm was gently lifting up my testes and sapping them of their strength. I could feel my energy being drained. Suddenly realizing I was being weakened, I woke up. Almost immediately I grabbed my testes and yes - they were still there - thank God - but I truly felt that some of my power had been robbed. What a witch! I thought to myself. She came to me in my dreams to rob me of my manhood.

"What could it mean?" I asked.

Verses 100-101 from the chapter called Vows

One time, I successfully defended myself against a hooligan. In the middle of the night, I was once awakened by the stampings and shouts of a group of late-night rabble-rousers. They were climbing up my apartment building's main stairwell. Outside my door, they began ripping apart various pictures from the walls. They were cheap pictures, mostly posters, but I was very angry for being awakened. Going to the kitchen, I grabbed a large knife and lemon, and, going to the front door, I opened it. Leaning against the doorframe, I saw my provokers' faces. It was my upstairs neighbor's eldest son ripping off paintings from the wall. There was an older boy with him, along with his baby boo and some other ugly girl, perhaps the older boy's girlfriend. They all ran down the stairs. My neighbor was left alone. Ever so slowly, I began slicing my lemon. My neighbor came up to me - not too close, but close enough to be 'in my face.' My knife was pointed right at his gut.

Verse 315 from the chapter called Adolescence

There was nothing one could say or do in the face of bullshit. Whatever my baby boo had to figure out, she could do it on her own, or at least with somebody else - not me: I was too busy growing up: there was no time to lose. That girlfriend of mine was twenty-two years old when we broke up; we never really talked again. Perhaps I missed her maturation - who knows? Your father was more precocious.

Verse 427 from the chapter called Adolescence

I went to my baby boo. "Let's join the Confraternity of the Pilgrim Church," I said.

Verse 380 from the chapter called Adolescence

Usage of Baby in Sex for Children

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.

ANDY: Yeah, but then they would just get fat again once we release them. The truth is, I don't mind having so many fat people around. Because the more fat people there are, the better I look.

NIKE: Hey, and don't forget: there's nothing funnier than two fat people trying to make a baby.

ANDY: Hey, what do you think, Luka?

NIKE: Luka doesn't like it: 'cause he's chunky. Hey, Luka: maybe you're the one who's gay.

MAN: Alright: wait here.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 2, Science & Reform Schools, Section 14, Getting to the Heart of a Matter, Paragraphs 41-46

Oh Andre, how could you forget such a thing? You must've thought it was in New York, but no: it was in Austria. I'm almost positive. And Olympia was there! baby Olympia! The child was by the fireplace. Oh, it was so long ago! She was just an infant. We were caressing her; we were all caressing her - taking turns; do you remember? I remember it so precisely.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 19, Conception, Paragraph 5, Clauses 1-5

Indiana just came by for a visit. She didn't stay long: apparently, she came by to make a request. A few minutes ago, she asked me whether I could take care of her children tonight. I agreed. Apparently, according to Indiana, she made a deal with the babysitter, who wanted Friday off in exchange for working on Saturday - or maybe, that's what Indiana wanted - I don't know - either way, I'll be spending my night with Fabric and Olympia. Much looking forward to it, dear sister: I haven't taken care of children since our cousin stayed with us for the whole month of August - remember? when you were in Austria and our mother was constantly working on Ramapo? I don't think I did a good job then: I don't think I'll do a good job now, but, anyway, it must be done - for the sake of the greater good or whatnot.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 2, Science & Reform Schools, Section 6, Making a Request, Paragraph 1

And we were all quite oblivious to the fact that you and Indiana had just shared a 'look,' that Indiana had said something about the baby, something about the amount of attention it receives, that you had said quite innocently, 'I wish I had someone to caress me,' and that Indiana had caught your eye, that you shared a look, and that she said to you: 'Don't worry: someday.'

ALICE: I do.

FLETCHER: I came up with it after I had a similar experience.

ALICE: There was a girl you wanted to marry?

– ACT II, lines 91-100

FLETCHER: Good. My mother's been trying to stop her. I don't blame her for that. I feel sorry for the poor girl. Her story is a sad one. Kokomo's grandmother was raped by the Japanese while they were occupying the island of Upolu in Western Samoa. That's where Kokomo was born. Her mother was the product of that horrendous crime. Though they were the victims, both mother and child were ostracized by their tribe. Even after her mother had grown up, only the Catholic priest would take pity on them. Kokomo was the product of that pity. Eventually, she went to American Samoa to work as a prostitute for the tuna canners. One day, she came home with fifty thousand dollars and a baby. It turned out her pimp had threatened to kill her if she didn't have an abortion. Unfortunately, Kokomo made the ill-advised decision, once the baby came, to run away with the pimp's money. He ended up tracking her down. When he showed up at the mother's hut, Kokomo, in a state of pure shock, burned the money. The guy flipped out, killed her mother, slit the baby's throat, burned down the hut and forced her onto his boat. On their way to Pago Pago, they were hijacked by a bunch of pirates from Fiji. They killed the pimp and then realized he didn't have anything worthwhile except for the girl. While they stood around, trying to decide what to do, Kokomo offered them the greatest sex they would ever have in their entire lives: on the condition that they release her. They figured: why not? They could do whatever they wanted with her no matter what happened. Kokomo blew their minds. They were so satisfied, they stuck to the deal. They let her go in Fiji, where they begged her to stay and work as a prostitute. Kokomo agreed to do it, but only until she made up the fifty thousand dollars that she burned: the money that killed her mother and her newborn baby.

"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.

Censorship says everything...as should modern wall art

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.
