Now, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is meditating on the practicality of boosting his vast Fiction Corpus with a treatise on classic science fiction; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't doubt the viability of administering English as a worldwide standard. I don't trust in the blah blah blah system by which English is presented for study.Pointer

Reinforcing one's handiness with a language isn't like promoting a cleaner piece of coal. A language - a common language - isn't merely an instrument that you can learn to manipulate with a greater amount of precision. A common language can't be detached from the shared logic 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.

Teaching a student to recite English is to cheat her out of its cultural context. A capable instructor must develop a strategy for introducing it; the smartest pupil goes out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define a language on the basis of a specific corpus, a body of written works of various scope and consistency. This corpus may contain anything from a book about literature to some really short funny stories. I watched many nights pass forging my "gargantuan" Fiction Corpus in order to form a precise 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 framed a million words and I have diagnosed them, reframing them - not just to teach a tongue but to defend the human soul, and to coax that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help Promote Citizen Diplomacy 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

Four days after I arrived in Poland, the largely Catholic country was celebrating Corpus Christi, complete with solemn processions down the street. Three days later I had made a solemn vow that if given the chance to express it, I would show love to a woman I had only just met.

I knew naturism was popular in many parts of Europe and as an artist who had worked on body acceptance for his entire career I was keen on documenting some small part of it. Lo and behold, I found a very important part of it hiding in Poland. Her name was Margo.

Though I was born in Europe, I had been brought up from a young age in America, living in states as diverse as Nebraska, Ohio and Connecticut. I was taught American values and saw reality from an American perspective. She was born and raised in a village in Poland. She went to work in the nearest town. The nearest city seemed like the center of the world. The American perspective was not something she was ever planning to see.

Do unto others as you would have done unto you. But how to judge what we would want done to us if we've never been in somebody else's shoes? If we've never been abandoned by our mother, how do we treat somebody who has? Somebody who seems to constantly suffer the repurcussions of it? Margo and I had 46 days and 6,000 miles to try on each other's shoes. We had one car and one tent in which to hear each other's words. We learned to cooperate. We started learning how to listen.

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 Now

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 now in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Now 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.

"Whose fault is that?" I asked. It was true: my mother had neglected me. Without my grandmother, she had never gone to church. Now that she was here, my mother was taking me every single week. I was suffering the greatest humiliation I had ever had to suffer: every time Communion came along, I was left out. That girl sitting behind me was just as old, if not younger, and she got to go. She got to take Holy Communion; I was left out. She got to see me sitting there humiliated, left alone. My own mother was humiliating me in front of a beautiful girl! This is how I first came to Christ: humiliated.

Verse 133 from the chapter called Childhood

That same day, quite unbeknownst to your father, he was issued a certificate of citizenship by the United States Department of Justice.

Verse 2 from the chapter called Adolescence

You are my only hope, child. You are my knowledge. You are living proof that my life was not lived in vain. You must listen to me: I have much to say, much to tell you. Your grandfather has given me this chance. God bless your grandfather! He is a tyrant, but I bless him. I only hope he doesn't censor too much. I must be careful. Your grandfather doesn't trust me. Why should he? I am a desperate man: at death's door, I smell it: death: tissue: dying: spinning.

Verse 10 from the chapter called Invocation

There was a large gymnasium: it was huge. On the other side, there were deaf kids. For some reason, they were always standing around in a row, facing me - that's how I remember them. They were always far away. They might have been retards. For all I knew, they were a different species of man. They were huge. They were disproportionate. Some of them had big heads. They would wave their arms about and make funny noises. They talked funny. They talked like deaf people. Nobody told me they were deaf - how did I know? I don't remember. Maybe they weren't deaf, but they were definitely something. They were senseless. Their arms were waving around senselessly. These people were senseless - I remember thinking that. Your father was different: he put needles into his body. But these people were senseless. They made no sense. They made noises. They stood around making noises, waving their arms around. What were they saying? I didn't know. They were strange: like me - but I was different. I didn't wave my arms around. More importantly, they were together: they were a group. They were many; and I was one. They were lucky for it - I felt it. I understood, however faintly: they had each other, and I was alone. I ran back to the brown woman, the one from a strange place called Sri Lanka. The one who wore strange clothes: she was different, and she was alone. I liked her. What a strange dot she had: nobody else had one.

Usage of Now 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 might even venture to finger it - that dark beauty - as the source of her present marital troubles. God knows that Albert has always been far from transparent - even to my own critical perception - but his reticence is no sign of tranquility, and though we may have once considered it a complement to Indiana's more garrulous nature, we may now have to add it to the strangeness that has always insinuated some sort of unstable neurosis in that man.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 1, Genital Pain as a Result of Physical Trauma, Paragraph 2, Clauses 6-8

The bidding for Barbara started at twenty dollars. Some student in a red baseball cap went for twenty, and then Luke immediately bumped it up to twenty-five. I hit him in the ribs and told him to stay out of it until the time was right. He asked me when that would be and I had to snap back; if he didn't know I couldn't explain it to him. By the time I turned my attention back to the bidding, it was up to thirty-five dollars. As somebody called out forty, I told Luke that this was usually where the real war breaks out - not that I know anything about bidding, but things seemed to be going well; I was suddenly buoyed with false confidence. Somebody yelled out forty-five and I looked up at Babs and she was looking straight at me, smiling such a beautiful smile; I wish I could've sketched it. And then disaster struck.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 7, Dating a Woman with Dogs, Paragraph 5

But once these things are grouped together, no criterion but taste is specific enough to distinguish between them; in this way, taste is subject to qualification. Do you see what I'm saying? You see, if one were judging an Olympic race, where time is measured by the millisecond, and we know that only one athlete will get the gold, one would still have to concede that each contestant is among the very best, and therefore equally capable of winning if circumstances permit. Unless of course, the race is run several times and there is always the same clear winner. But then that person belongs in a category of his own, sui generis, which, I suppose, might be construed to mean that he is the best, which also means that I am defeating my own argument.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 1, Section 1, Introduction, Paragraph 1, Clauses 25-29

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!"

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

The Astrazeneca were confused. They started shaking their humongous heads. Some said, "This is truth?" They raised the tone at the end of the statement as if it were a question. Others said, "This is false." It sounded as if they wanted to believe it but they weren't sure. It was a disaster.

The interviewer asked, "Are you a Wiki-en?"

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

On the bridge the life support system was already running. Orbitz turned on a monitor. He took out a small keyboard and typed, "Marriott, are you monitoring the ship's systems?"

A response appeared on the screen. "Yes, Rishi."

"Is everything functioning correctly?" typed Orbitz.

"Yes."

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

China is full of noise these days. People everywhere. Doing everything. Anything they can to make it. I know there's a cost to the churning. Families split apart. Like the Limas. Ten kids all over the world. San Jose. New York. Vancouver. London. Paris. Tokyo. All born in Hong Kong. If the rich can't keep it together what hope is there for the poor. I've seen the peasant families on TV. Parents who see their children once a year. Until the kids run away from their grandparents and find work in a bar somewhere.

– from “Beautiful Branca,” a true story that has been slightly embellished as far as I can recall

To ensure the veracity of Captain Orbitz's responses the Amazon enlisted the telepathic services of five of the most well-respected Astrazeneca in the Orion Arm. They did not come cheap. Shielded behind glass in five separate compartments they listened intently to Orbitz's thoughts. When Orbitz was asked directly if he was an exian, he said no. The megacepahlics buried their fingers into their huge pulsing temples. They concentrated and said almost in unison, "This is truth."

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.
