Brother, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal declines to debate the practicality of enlarging his sizable Fiction Corpus with a fairy tale about wall calendars; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't reject the practicality of exploiting English as a worldwide standard. I don't have faith in the debilitating system by which English is taught.Pointer

Boosting a person's knowledge of a language isn't like introducing a more accurate catapult. A language - a spoken tongue - is not just an instrument that you can teach yourself to manipulate with greater amounts of precision. A shared tongue cannot be disjoined from the prevailing culture 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.

To make a person recite English is to rob him of its cultural context. A proper educator must prepare a plan for introducing it; the prudent student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe words based on a specific corpus, a body of written language of varying scope and consistency. Such a corpus could include anything from a book about literature to a whole bunch of experimental fiction. I suffered many a sleepless night forging my "elephantine" Fiction Corpus in order to form a distinct class 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 shaped a million words and I have scrutinized them, reframing them - not merely to teach a tongue but to be an advocate for the human spirit, and to provoke that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Insider Trading 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

On the second to last weekend of June, 2011, I had joined my fellow naturists at a gathering of the Naturist Society in rural Pennsylvania. The next day I left on a flight for Europe. By the end of the week I had unexpectedly met another naturist, a woman, who was destined to accompany me on a tour of Europe's great naturist resorts.

Though as an artist I had been working on body acceptance since the start of my career, and as a one-time practicing figure model was used to being nude in a social setting, I had been left largely unexposed to the community of naturists and nudists working towards the same goal of promoting the human being. Visiting nude beaches and resorts along the East Coast and participating in events organized around New York by Young Naturists America, I was left hungry for more and had come to Europe to see things from their side of the pond. Margo was my introduction.

As an American, I was full of optimism and confidence bordering on recklessness. I was ready to run the wheels off the car I had just bought and eventually I would. As a European, she was cautious and mistrustful. She needed to make sure the air conditioner worked. Which it did. If you knew how to turn the broken knob in just the right way.

6,000 miles. One car. One tent. We started learning how to listen. We started learning how to open up. We started cooperating. Even when we were angry, even when it was so difficult that it didn't seem like it would turn out well, we stuck it out. We completed the trip and we came back happy. We had beaten the devil on the road. Back home more devils were waiting to abuse us. More anger. More fear. More sadness. This time we were prepared. This time we had each other and we could harken back to the joy and the trust and the suprise that 6,000 miles had created. We could remember what it was like to live in one tent.

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 Brother

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 brother in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Brother 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.

"Beloved sister," I said, "where have I been? When did I leave my lamb? You were like a newborn child whose brother pulled you on a string. You were my infant in an open box, left behind in a snowstorm. 'Where are you!' I yelled, but you were gone. You were covered in snow: invisible to selfish eyes who couldn't see that the string had long since broken. I lost you, child! I never turned around! I failed you and this is my punishment!

Verse 607 from the chapter called Adolescence

"Of course," I laughed. "You're the last Panzer-Tank heir." I was about to say: unless your half-brother and the rest of your family are still alive on Mars - but I stopped myself. That would've been stupid.

Verse 573 from the chapter called Bohemia

That boy's brother had been in jail for six months. His 'friends' had knocked him up with heroin. In broad daylight, they tried to rob a grocery store. They were caught.

Verse 330 from the chapter called Adolescence

"In gratitude for Your brother-in-law's generous hospitality."

Verse 378 from the chapter called Bohemia

"No: his real father was the Commandant's brother. He was run over by a speeding train. Walking home with two of his friends along the railroad tracks, all of a sudden, a speeding train was right in front of them. His father pushed his friends to either side - that was it: he was gone. Andrew's mother also died a bizarre death. She opened the furnace damper to keep the warmth inside. She put the kids to bed - then she went to sleep. When Andrew's father came home, she was cold; so was Andrew's younger brother. They were dead - from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Usage of Brother 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 began contemplating its total volume. "Where is the extra weight?" I thought. "Where is the unwelcome guest? Do I see a perfectly round blackness? absorbing all the light? Do I see it pushing away its neighbors? Yes: I see it throbbing. Little capillaries of red are throbbing throughout its body. See: you are feeding it with your own blood. Stop feeding it! Command your vessels to turn away! Rebuke them! Your own blood is conspiring against you. They are helping the cellular apostate. They are aiding its growth. And you wonder why we are all sick; we are all paralyzed with fear. We cannot speak with authority. But we must speak, brother. Speak and do not fear my ridicule - for only through ridicule may we gain authority." I was thinking this. My loins were screaming it. My organism was trying to communicate this to my ailing brother. Do you understand, sister? Do you see the difficulty of describing this?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 5, Inflammation of the Loins, Paragraph 3, Clauses 18-33

Now tell me honestly, am I not like a brother to you? We are more twin than meets the eye, even if you don't like to admit that no wife in this whole wide world could ever know your heart better than I do. What strange woman could possibly hope to understand all your contradictions? to know your mind and to speak to you as if speaking to her own soul?

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

I did not desire a confrontation, so I said: "You're right, I suppose. But even if I were subject to that sort of feeling, I would never elope. Under those circumstances, the repercussions are too heavy. I would never risk alienating my family." Forgive me, brother, but then I said: "My father has alienated himself from his entire family - do you realize that? And we have to suffer the silence, even though we had nothing to do with it.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 13, Bringing Up a Delicate Subject, Paragraph 7, Clauses 1-5

My dear brother, you did not wear your bewilderment on your sleeve, but I knew it as a twin knows it, as one who has constantly suffered it, and who has tried sincerely to overcome it (your bewilderment: do you know what I'm talking about?) Anyway...

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 1, Genital Pain as a Result of Physical Trauma, Paragraph 6

Dear brother: why should we allow ourselves to be frustrated? I for one will not allow it: I will not subject my destiny to the basest feeling. There is no force, no righteous cause that tells me I must be controlled by an orientation I did not choose. Unlike the courts of justice, I will embrace Reason; I will allow her, and only her, to squeeze my breast. She will smile for me, and I will give her hands free roam. She will rub herself against my very soul - but only her - only she can caress me. My body will love Reason; that brilliantly systematic touch excites my flesh. Those cold fingers will make my flesh jump; we shall conceive. Only with Reason may two conceive. How wonderful!

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 was not amused by his brother's sanguinity. Joining his sulking stepmother on the day bed, he started sulking himself.

"Did your brother tell you what happened?"

Ferrari nodded. After a while, he murmured, "It's a shame."

"As grateful as I am for the Bishop, I'm afraid for the boy. He takes home a few carlini. If that robber had gotten to him on the way back, he might have had his fill. What if he tries again?"

– from “Italy Sucks and Has Sucked For A Long Time,” an adventure story featuring a pretty sad world

Ferrari agreed. It wasn't easy to keep his promise. His brother could barely keep the snot from piling on his upper lip. Every time Ferrari had to stand back and watch the concertmaster pull out his purse, pure envy pervaded his heart.

– from “Italy Sucks and Has Sucked For A Long Time,” an adventure story featuring a man with few scruples left

The people wondered why Ferrari hadn't been prepared. Was he really a coward? Not being able to figure it out, they soon forgot. Something more memorable occurred. His brother miraculously regained his speech and his hearing.

– from “Italy Sucks and Has Sucked For A Long Time,” an adventure story about a man who takes his father's wife to bed

"It's insane."

"Haven't you seen a fighter jet refuel in mid-flight?"

"Washington would never agree."

"Don't give them a choice. By the time they sit down to talk about it, we'll have a warehouse of oil. There's a fuel equipment supplier in Urumqi. I'll try to get as much as I can on credit."

"Whose? Your Chinese driver's?"

"His brother-in-law runs a repair shop."

"This is ridiculous."

"I'll need some Coke to prop him up."

"I can't use company funds without-"

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring a pair of hapless guys who get kidnapped

Hell has not heard such cries. Nor had Ferrari anticipated, despite being on many battlefields, the strong smell of sulfur coming from his brother's hair. It was nauseating. Leaving him to writhe around, Ferrari fled outside. In the darkness, he found where he had left his father passed out in a wheelbarrow. Dropping him onto the day bed, he left.

MS. JACKSON: Why are you being so contrary?

FLETCHER: I'm just surprised you didn't hear anything about me and Mrs. Menzies making out behind St. Barnabas. I guess the McCoy brothers kept their end of the bargain. They extorted five hundred and fifty-two dollars from me in exchange for promising to keep quiet. Cash, by the way, is very hard to come by on this island. What could I do?

Usage of Brother 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 knew my sister was in love with one of them. So what? It didn't change anything. It didn't change our fate. We had the future of a population on our heads. You can't walk away from that. We had to fight to the death. Like it or not. Right up on that hill. In the middle of the cemetary. It seemed like the right place to do it. I think it was my brother's idea. Not Gaio. The middle one. Lucio. Like I said we didn't know who was the oldest or who was the youngest. But I always teased Gaio for being the romantic one. It made him the youngest. In my eyes.

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

Both of my brothers died up on that hill. I would've died too if I hadn't run. What was I supposed to do. Both my brothers were dead. All three of those damn Curiazi were still alive. They were bloodied alright but they were still shooting. I couldn't hold all three of them off at the same time. I ran. Right down the hill. I made those Curiazi brothers chase me. Find me. That's what saved me. That's how I won. I picked them off one after the other.

– from “The Testament of Publio Orazio,” a horror story without a lot of screaming coming straight out of Roman mythology

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

Captain Orbitz came from a long line of distinguished galactic luminaries. His father and his brother had been martyred in a great battle against the forces of Scutum-Centauris. His grandfather was a delagate to the Grand Orion Council from the planet Vancouver. His lineage went all the way to one of the leaders of the original humanoid slave revolt. He was sacrosanct. When his name was red-flagged at the security bureau it was summarily dismissed as an error. It was red-flagged again. And again. Somebody by the name of Rishi Keplar Jorgen Tycho Kalvinicus Orbitz was having associations with the outlawed Wiki-en Society. People went crazy. They wanted him arrested. They wanted him interrogated. There was only one problem. Orbitz was on assignment. He was the second longest-serving courier in the Alliance. He was traversing a wormhole.

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

I often wonder why the cruelty imposed on my brothers was necessary for my story. If not for what happened to Barack I would never have been frightened out of Moscow. I would never have had the courage to walk into the unknown. If Barack was not forced to live a life of constant pain, I would not have the life of love I enjoy with my wife. How can I thank him for that?

The Body Acceptance Calendar

A really good idea for a monthly calendar

If a 45-year-old businesswoman and hard working mother of three kids is going to pose nude for a calendar, it's gonna have to be a good one. Margo didn't start a coffee shop called the Vagina Cafe to win her favors from the establishment. Even as she dishes out prizes to the 20 women who placed last in the twentienth anniversary run of her town's biggest road race, her business, unlike everyone else, doesn't get mentioned. She was an official sponsor for Christ's sake! But the announcer just couldn't swallow his patriarchy and get the words "Vagina Cafe" out of his mouth. That's not something a proper gentleman would say in front of a crowd of humble God-fearing "ladies" who cherish their modesty! And a Body Acceptance Calendar is certainly not what a humble God-fearing book-seller like a Barnes and Noble would put on their shelves! So how do I expect to sell this in the mainstream? Maybe if you download the free versions a thousand billion times it might help. Start downloading.
