Father, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is weighing the potency of expanding his outsized Fiction Corpus with a fable about writing stories to read online; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't doubt the idea of enacting English as a common language for the world. I don't have faith in the unexciting route by which English is presented for study.Pointer

Fine-tuning a person's know-how with a language isn't like creating a more accurate crossbow. A language - a living language - is not merely an instrument that you can learn to employ with greater amounts of precision. A language can not be decoupled from the competing values 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 deprive her of its cultural context. An informed instructor has to develop a technique for introducing it; the prudent pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define words on the basis of a particular corpus, a body of written language of various size and consistency. They may contain anything from a book about literature to a bunch of books to read. I forged my "gigantic" Fiction Corpus to form a peculiar sort 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 drawn up a million words and I have inspected them, reformulating them - not just to teach an American tongue but to describe the human spirit, and to coax that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help Replace Persecution With Truth in 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

In June of 2011 I arrived in Europe for what I hoped would be a great adventure; my only concrete plan, to visit Croatia. By September I had driven 6,000 miles and visited 12 different countries, all with a woman I met on the first Friday of my trip.

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.

I considered myself young and able, and being American I often convinced myself I was more than able. She didn't feel quite so young. Having grown up in Poland, what was and is still considered by many to be a poor country, she had the added burden of not only being disadvantaged but having it held against her. The difference became palpable when I realized I couldn't even properly translate into Polish the very American word, "opportunity." A chance? Sure. An occasion? Why not? An opportunity? Not in the book.

As far apart culturally as we may have been, we spent 6,000 miles in one car. We spent over 40 nights in one tent. We started learning how to listen to each other. We started learning how to accept our differences and how to let them help us instead of driving us apart. Slowly but surely, we started learning how to beat the devils that abuse us.

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 Father

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 father in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Father 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.

"Oh, quite right. Quite right. Do you interest yourself in gastronomy?"

I smiled. "I like to eat."

"Yes, quite right. Then you must try these," he said, pointing.

"Sweetbreads: yes, I'm familiar."

"Yes. How about these?"

"Those are macaroons."

"And these?"

"I'm Polish, not stupid." Your grandfather laughed. "Yes, that was a joke: thank you."

"Hitler Panzer-Tank the Third," he said, offering me his hand. I shook it.

"Nice to meet you," I said - and smiled, not introducing myself. It was awkward.

"Yes, well, the feeling's mutual."

Verses 38-48 from the chapter called Childhood

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

In the third grade, we kept singing, "This Land is Your Land." The choir was rehearsing for some kind of stupid assembly. There was an older boy there who kept saying that we were singing the goofy lyrics: the stupid lyrics made for children. He wanted to sing the real words. The teacher said these were the real words and we should be quiet. Your father asked him how he knew that these were fake. He said his older brother had told him. I asked him if he actually knew the real words. He said yes. The teacher got very angry with us and gave us both red cards.

Usage of Father 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.

Now I don't know why it has to do with St. Barbara's Day. She was one of those beautiful early Christian saints, one of those mythic virgins who was very pious among pagans and who scorned all of her suitors, et cetera. She was locked up in a tower by her jealous father - according to the fabulous legend - to prevent anyone from seeing her great beauty, but Barbara, noticing that the tower had only two windows, demanded the workmen that they build one more, which they were convinced to do because the father was off on a long journey.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 20, The Role Of Religion, Paragraph 4, Clauses 1-4

NIKE: He inspired him. Like I said before, my father came of age during the Twenty-First Party Congress. Nineteen fifty-nine was the year he grew a political consciousness: he was twelve years old, and Khrushchev just came back from a successful trip to the United States. If he hadn't, I would probably be speaking Russian right now.

INDIE: Do you speak Russian?

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 27, Penetration, Paragraphs 53-54

But when he returned, he confronted his daughter about the window and she turned to him and said: "I have done this because three windows lighten all the world and all creatures, but two make darkness," whereupon she explained to him the significance of the Holy Trinity, which did not sit well with her pagan father: he brought her before the magistrate, who, for the sake of her pagan soul, prescribed extensive torture, and, after a lengthy period of suffering, she was beheaded by her own father.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 20, The Role Of Religion, Paragraph 4, Clauses 5-6

These were the only thoughts that Nike was entertaining, especially when he was waiting to be interrogated. He didn't know what time it was or how long he had been or would be waiting. He didn't care. Thanks to his father, he knew all the tricks of the trade, and much worse besides: things these creatures would never dare to attempt. So, when the door opened behind him, our Nike did not feel the slightest apprehension. He simply yearned for his beloved, waiting for the chance to say something to her, do something for her - but what? he didn't know, nor could he expect anything. So be it, he thought. He would have to surprise himself.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 1, Family & Welfare Reform, Section 5, Being an Ass, Paragraph 1

Suffering from intellectual humiliation, I turned to the other conversation on my right, hoping that my adolescent interest in the military might stand me in better stead. The boy was describing how both the father and the grandfather and the great-grandfather of his roommate had served in the Marines, and of course the inescapable nature of such a legacy. The grandfather had served in the Second World War, and the great-grandfather in the Banana Wars in Honduras, and I yelled, "Bananas! Now we're both talking about fruit!"

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.

GREY GOOSE: No. You're a good kid. I know that. I only wish I could've been a better father.

FLETCHER: You were good enough.

GREY GOOSE: I wasn't.

FLETCHER: You only hit me - what? Once? I deserved it.

GREY GOOSE: I made it count.

FLETCHER: I barely felt it.

GREY GOOSE: Come on.

FLETCHER: It's better than what you had. I'm grateful.

GREY GOOSE: I'm going to miss this place.

FLETCHER: You're not out yet.

– ACT I, lines 1277-1286

MS. JACKSON: If he came to me repentant of his sins - I mean all of them - I would forgive him. I would consider allowing him to return to this house. Do you think I don't want him? I want him more than you could ever know. I want him in a way that, unfortunately, I have never had him. I won't settle for less than I deserve. That's all I'm going to say on the subject. It upsets me. Your father has behaved strangely in the past; as of late, his actions have been frightening me. Maybe it is the climate around here - I'm not going to take any chances. (to KOKOMO) I want you to watch out for him, in case he should try to violate you.

FLETCHER: That is unwarranted.

MS. JACKSON: It may have taken a hundred and fifty years for another murder to occur, but we are not immune to rape. We need only bear witness to what took place on Pitcairn in recent times. Six men were found guilty of sexual offenses. That's almost the entire adult male population over there. I'm not going to let that happen around here - not while I'm alive. Do you understand? As soon as you're done with this mess, Kokomo, I would like these towels to go to the laundry. We have all of Lesbian's things to wash.

KOKOMO: I have a question, ma'am.

MS. JACKSON: Yes?

KOKOMO: Will our guest from New Zealand be staying with us for considerably longer than planned? If that's the case, I'm going to have to make a new schedule.

MS. JACKSON: I don't know, dear. I don't think so, but, then again, you can never be sure, can you? Just stick to the current schedule for now. I'm sorry if you've been overworked.

KOKOMO: That is not my concern at all.

MS. JACKSON: I just want Homo to feel as welcome as possible. Thank you for your continued cooperation. Excuse me.

FLETCHER: Is that right?

LUKE: Am I just bein' a drongo?

FLETCHER: Not at all. My father told you?

– ACT I, lines 747-756

FLETCHER: There is a house on Norfolk that no longer stands. Its eaves of pine were reduced to ash. Its worthy frame that I helped build collapsed in a huge fury of smoke and fire that I helped start. I watched it burning from the top of Mount Pitt. I was too ashamed to go any closer. I was there in the room the night my father planned that terrible justice with his friends. I heard them goading each other into teaching their fellow man not to cooperate with the Australian government. It was madness I heard from their lips. They were the drunken lips of dogs waiting to pounce. I said nothing. I did nothing to stop them. When the police came, I lied and said I knew nothing. I climbed Mount Pitt out of morbid curiosity to see what I had wrought. That image of the house whose beams I placed - whose trusses I tied - in the distance - engulfed in flames - is seared upon my mind. I did nothing to stop it. Do you know how sorry I am? If I told you that somebody died in that fire, would it be in your power to forgive me?

Father walked in with Albert. They told us Christkindl had flown by. It was time to open presents. We gradually gathered ourselves together. You stayed on the couch. Indiana took Olympia out of her chair. Mother begged to take her. Indiana held her out. I watched Mother bounce the baby in her arms. She followed Grandmother out of the room. I turned to leave.

"I was at work that day," my father explained. "I would have told your mother to get out of the shot. The director, the producer, even what's his name. The actor. They all got on the megaphone. They screamed at her. She refused to budge. They made such a big fuss about it."

For the first time in my rotten life I was proud of my mother.

– from “The Most Idiotic Actress,” a fictional story that represents the spirit of actual events as far as the author can tell

Grandmother laughed. "I married his son. He was named after his father. His face came from somewhere else - most people suspected the village headman. I liked your Grandfather very much growing up. He was a good boy. I made sure he was the one I saw."

"How did you do it?" I asked. "Did you trick him into climbing onto the roof?"

You were probably thinking about it as you lay on the couch. It was after dinner. Albert was in the other room with Father. Indiana and I were on the floor. Mother was on the love seat. Grandmother was in her chair.

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.
