God, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal declines to debate the thought of enhancing his epic Fiction Corpus with a non fiction book; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't doubt the practicality of employing English as an international standard. I don't have faith in the certifiably commonplace methodology by which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Beefing up a person's proficiency with a language isn't like developing a bigger dam. A language - a common language - is not merely a tool that you can learn to employ with greater amounts of precision. A living tongue can not be segregated from the prevailing culture of a circle 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 deprive him of its cultural context. A worthy instructor has to have a strategy for introducing it; the smartest student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define words on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of written language of varying scope and consistency. They might contain everything from a book about literature to a bunch of free fiction. I burned many candles laboring on my "overwhelming" Fiction Corpus in order to form a new 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 devised a million words and I have ordered them, reshaping them - not simply to teach American vocabulary but to describe the human soul, and to coax that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help Treat Sociopathy 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

Europe, the summer of 2011. Twelve countries. 46 days. One car. One tent. One man. One woman he's just met.

Though I felt fully formed as a writer, and had been trained in visual language, it was my first time with a professional camera in my hands. I was just learning the ins and outs and had come to Europe to find as diverse a selection of subject matter as possible, preferably something that fit my aesthetic devotion to promoting body acceptance. Enter Margo.

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.

Margo and I spent over 40 days on the road. We started out as basically strangers, but in those 40 days we started listening to each other. We started teaching ourselves how to cooperate. Our journey across Europe may have ended, but our journey towards each other continues. No amount of fear, anger, sadness, disgust or anticipation can stop hope. Slowly but surely, we're learning how to beat the devils that abuse us.

One of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

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 God

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 god in some kind of way.

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

Definition of GodMargo on a trampoline

A god is a person, either real or imagined, who has the perceived ability to hear you even when you're convinced he's miles away or else busy doing something else. It can also be fetishized to mean a being, either real or imagined, who is perceived to have extraordinary powers.

Usage of God 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.

Jesus went to his grandmother's house. She made us food; we ate. She said, "God bless you, Jesus. My daughter loved you: she loved you like a mother loves her own son."

Verse 248 from the chapter called Adolescence

"How did it come back?"

"Who knows? But it always did, like a bad smell."

"What about his claws?"

"They were mist."

"Could they hurt you?"

"No: they would dissipate. But don't forget: his paws were real. They could hit you in the face - and the Lonely Planet must've been strong: he was the fastest thing on four legs - or, four paws, as the case was. He was so fast, he could outrun his own body - swear to God: if you were lucky enough to see him running by, you would see his tail was bigger by about six or seven feet: he would look hungry, 'cause he was thin - but that was just his body trying to catch up, like a comet - that's what people said his name was, before he died."

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.

NIKE: She's fucking gone, man. She disappeared.

INDIE: Who?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 22, Encountering Poverty, Paragraphs 190-199

He didn't go there to pray: he was looking for something very specific. And, as he was leaning into a transept, looking to see if there were any doors perhaps hidden somewhere in the alcoves, a Jesuit priest stopped right behind him and asked him what he was looking for. "God," said Nike, smiling. "I'm looking for God, Monseigneur." So the priest told him to follow him to the rectory, and there, he gave Nike some valuable literature. Nike thanked him very generously, and then he left.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 6, The Sixth Day, Part 1, Children & Education Reform, Section 6, Encountering Chastity, Paragraph 6

MÉL: We locked the door. I would stay after school and she would make love to me. She would say, "Oh Mélissa: thank God he created woman. You are so beautiful. I want to kiss you all over." She would unbutton my blouse and take my breasts out. She would look at them for the longest time. And then, she would nurse me. She would suck my teat so hard I wanted to scream. But I didn't: I would moan like a little pussycat. I would wrap my legs around her and press myself against her body. Sometimes, I would go underneath her tunic and hide there. In the dark, I would lick her sweet tangerine - my face was covered with nun-juice: I was in heaven. Then, when I came out, she would lick the honey off my face and kiss me. She would thank me. We would take off each other's clothes and we would hug. Our legs would wrap themselves around each other and we'd be rubbing up and down, setting our bushes on fire, drenching them in juice, trying to get our pussies to kiss.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 2, Science & Reform Schools, Section 12, Economic Justice, Paragraph 48

Nike was amazed. "If the Lord of whom you speak hath made you walk, then I thank him. I praise His name. God bless the Lord!" And the Holy Spirit possessed him. He collapsed onto the ground with a painful cry. His body began to writhe; his face began to grimace. He was being conquered.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 6, The Sixth Day, Part 1, Children & Education Reform, Section 7, Becoming Obedient, Paragraph 10

NIKE: Don't worry about it, Rothko. I've got everything figured out. If this woman's a nun, like I think she might be, then she has friends from different orders; or, maybe, she has heirlooms - who knows? Anyway: I've mapped out all the convents west of the river. I know where all the Carmelites hang out. I know exactly where the heaviest concentrations of penguins are in the whole damn area...and goddamn it: Rothko! I'm doing my community service - so help me - smack dab in the middle!

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.

"Thank God," she cried. "What's going on?"

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring hopeless people

"We who have displeased the Bhag with our complacence will fight each other to the death. Our champion will carry our swords to the holy Harrah Berezati [i.e., literally, the high watchtower, mountain abode of the gods]. He will offer them in sacrifice. This is the will of Gog."

– from “In the Beginning, There was Gog,” a fantasy story featuring a man who cuts heads first

The army of Sargon broke through the trees. The people of Gomer attacked. Enkidu was horrified by their lack of experience. Though they were brave, they spread out too quickly. The force of the stampede was stemmed by the forest. Thick trunks provided cover. The king's men had a fighting chance.

– from “In the Beginning, There was Gog,” a fantasy story featuring a man who believes he can reach the gods

By the time he came to his senses, he was being deified. People were associating him with the tiger-headed fish-mount of a god of law. The logogram was a picture of a fish next to a tiger. It could also mean "killer whale," which is what the newspapers and the less superstitious folk called him. All Patsy had to do was sit around and let his wrist heal. Kumiko took care of the rest.

– from “A Cop Named Patsy,” a funny story featuring an honest investigator

The woman cried, "I will." She picked up the weapons. She added, "As soon as I have stood on the bridge and peered into the underworld." She faced Gog with her legs astride. "For now, I am a warrior. We have a land to conquer."

Gog was impressed by this audacity. He accepted the woman as his consort. The people recognized her as Magog, living embodiment of the light of Mithra.

Usage of God 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.

KOKOMO: It is. I keep telling you that.

FLETCHER: Maybe for Catholics: you have thousands of years of ritual to fall back on: Popes and bishops to decide for you.

KOKOMO: That's not fair.

FLETCHER: I'm supposed to be my own priest.

KOKOMO: Maybe you should start praying.

FLETCHER: For what? For the will to become Catholic?

KOKOMO: You know what I am. You've taken the time to study what my faith requires. I'm overjoyed by that. I realize it angers you sometimes. You need to remember it isn't about priests or prayer or sacraments or the Bible or saints or miracles or doctrine or creed. It's not even about salvation. It's about sacrifice. If you, Fletcher Christian, are not willing to place yourself into the hands of God - to submit yourself to His Divine Mercy - then nothing else matters and there will never be any happiness between us.

FLETCHER: I see that.

KOKOMO: You don't see it.

FLETCHER: How can you tell?

– ACT I, lines 1342-1351

LUKE: (to ALICE)

I'll explain later.

MS. JACKSON: How dare you invade this house? You idiot! What were you trying to do? Rape my cook? Don't tell me she was expecting you. You weren't expecting him, were you?

KOKOMO: No.

MS. JACKSON: You were trying to seduce her. My God! With a sudden invasion of the sofa bed? Not even an imbecile would consider that an effective strategy. You've lost your wits completely, haven't you? Pathetic. If you're so desperate for sex, why don't you try buying some attention?

GREY GOOSE: I admit that there have been a few times in the past couple years when I thought my vow of fidelity to you had long since expired. There may even have been a few times when I looked after a nice bit of flesh. Despite that, I've never been unfaithful to you, Ms. Jackson, no matter what you might think. As for this, I won't deny what I was after - and have been after for too long now - which is, namely, to sleep in my own bed, whether or not your cook or your lover or anyone else is in it at the time - and that, my dear, is a matter of your own construction.

MS. JACKSON: You deserved to be expelled. Do you think I enjoyed getting looks in town? Complimenting my dress, were they? You promised me you had never fooled around and that you never would. Now I know every single word they ever uttered about you is true. How could you? After all we've been through? I loved you.

FLETCHER: Come on.

GREY GOOSE: Wait. I've got some more to say. I confess I earned somewhat of a reputation in my day - for reasons mostly beyond my control, like my virility and my instinctual desire to perform well.

FLETCHER: Don't screw it up.

– ACT II, lines 347-355

(MS. JACKSON exits.)

FLETCHER: Can you believe it? Not only are my parents back together again, we just made our retirement quota.

KOKOMO: How can you be sure the money's there?

FLETCHER: I have faith in God.

KOKOMO: What does He have to do with it?

FLETCHER: He put it in there for me.

KOKOMO: Why would He do that?

FLETCHER: I asked Him to do it.

KOKOMO: Do you believe in prayer now?

FLETCHER: I do. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll ever have my prayers answered quite like this again.

– ACT II, lines 518-526

(LUKE enters unseen.)

ALICE: With the exception that girls are a bit smarter.

KOKOMO: And sexier.

FLETCHER: Spare me your neo-feminist theses.

ALICE: Is it our fault you fail to understand them?

KOKOMO: He's overwhelmed by our girl power.

Usage of God 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.

My thoughts raced. What was going on? I imagined leaning over and kissing her. I shook my head. Why would I think that? I considered putting my hand on her knee. What for? Nonsense. I remembered how I grasped her bare buttocks. My God. What had I done?

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

I'll never win with my wife. I used to support her all the time. Until she told me to stop. She said, "Don't coach me. I don't need a coach." So I stopped. I listen to my wife. When she apologizes I'll be there to hear it. I'll accept. That's what husbands do. They listen. They accept. God help them. They clog the toilet.

– from “The Backed-Up Toilet,” a literature story based on reality as I remember it

We need only refer to nineteenth century French literature to confirm this. According to Anatole France, Saint Paphnutius was destroyed by a look. Struck by the sight of Thais on stage, as she played the role of pure-hearted Polyxena, lifting the curtain with her white arm, pride and resignation in her violet eyes, the hermit monk, sent to save the whore from her dissipation, grew so infatuated with her image, learning later she was on her death bed, surrounded by her fellow nuns, he begged her petulantly not to die, rejecting Heaven, as she rose, moments before her final breath, to proclaim a vision of God with such rapture in her eyes, it held for poor Paphnutius the profound emptiness of his own soul. He turned into a vampire. That is the power of a look.

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

"Don't touch anything." I threw my tights and my bra behind the love seat. I strode in front of Nike. I gave him another look. I arranged the cloth with my toes. Thank God it was clean. I stepped into the holes. I squatted. I took hold of the cloth. I pulled up. I stood. I snapped the waistband around my hips. I pointed my finger in Nike's face. I growled, "If you ever mention this to anyone, I will hurt you."

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that may calm one's sense of discomfort depending on your outlook

I guess you can blame the fact that we were two sets of triplets, you know. People thought that was like a sacred thing. A sign from God. Two sets of triplets on opposite sides of the war. Who better to sort out the whole thing. Make it easy. What do they call it. A trial by fire. Fire from our guns. I thought it was an idea. I don't know. It made sense.

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.
