Into, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is meditating on the soundness of enlarging his puny Fiction Corpus with even more historical fiction; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't question the prospect of enacting English as a worldwide lingua franca. I don't believe in the vapid design by which English is presented for study.Pointer

Boosting a person's mastery of a language isn't like pioneering a stronger wheelbarrow. A language - a living tongue - isn't merely a tool that you can learn to exploit with a greater amount of precision. A spoken language can't be disassociated from the professed knowledge 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 people recite English is to deprive them of its cultural context. An informed instructor must have a blueprint for introducing it; the bravest pupil goes out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. The best dictionaries define words on the basis of a specific corpus, a body of written language of various size and consistency. Such a corpus may contain everything from a biography of a famous fictional character to some really fictional short stories. I burned many candles developing my "monumental" Fiction Corpus to form a unique 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 reduced them, reformulating them - not merely to teach English vocabulary but to be an advocate for the human spirit, and to prod that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help Prevent Self-destructive behaviour 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 Monday, I arrived in Europe. By Wednesday I had bought a car. By Friday I had met the woman who a few months later would end up having travelling 6,000 miles across Europe with me.

Call it an accident. Call it divine will. I was never supposed to meet Margo...if not for one man's random criminal act...another abuse piled upon humanity by a fellow human. A robbery. A purse-snatching of a purse that happened to contain a passport. An assault on the human body. One of society's bad habits that I had come to fight as an artist working for body acceptance.

I had an American passport. She didn't. And the fact that I was driving a car with Polish license plates gave her ample opportunity to point out the difference. It wasn't just police and border guards who ethnically profiled me. Regular folks did it too. One campsite owner didn't shake my hand until he realized I was an American. By that point, I had trained myself to use a simplified English, something that more closely resembled what passes for a lingua franca in Europe these days. Something Margo was trying very hard to master.

I've never gone hungry without deserving it. I've never been systemically beaten by a parent. I've never been fondled by a priest. That doesn't mean I can't listen to somebody who has had to experience such abuse and it doesn't mean I can't try to understand. Margo and I traveled 6,000 miles together. We slept in the same tent. We had to listen to each other. A person shouldn't need 6,000 miles to do it. We should be able to listen to each other just because we want to. We should've been taught to do it. If we haven't been taught, we should be learning how to do it and learning fast.

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 Into

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 into in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Into 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.

Those days were dark. The atmosphere was occupied. The stratosphere was made of sulfuric acid, way above the rainclouds, falling into blankets of haze. Darkness ruled, but some places fared far worse than others. Famine raged; whole crops failed. Millions died - hundreds of millions. World civilization was endangered. It seemed like the mushroom cloud would rule forever.

Verse 73 from the chapter called Childhood

Jesus stood against the wall for what seemed like an eternity. The man was still peeing. This was it, Jesus thought. This was meant for him - there was no denying it: this was a gift! From the Devil or the Lord, from Fortune's famous wheel - there was no difference: this was a gift! Jesus had to accept it. All the things he had ever known, all the lessons he had ever learned, all the decency that was ever beaten into him told him that he had to accept it. To do otherwise would've been impolite.

Verse 618 from the chapter called Adolescence

"Not that we needed someone to push us off the road: my grandfather almost drove us into a ditch - more than once. Every time the road shifted just a little bit to either side, my grandfather was going off, onto the tramway tracks for example. One time, he almost drove us right into a sign! I yelled at the last possible moment - even though I knew it was going to happen: I saw that sign from twenty meters away and we were going straight at it! He was looking at the road right in front of him, not twenty meters away! Not that we were going very fast, but seriously. If the divider lines disappeared, we were lost. He was looking at the oncoming headlights to align himself. Even then, we had close calls. On one whole stretch of road, he kept veering into the wrong lane. Then we stalled! Right in front of a curve! In the wrong lane! I was about to jump out of the car, I was so freaked-out.

Usage of Into 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.

The vacuum, which actually worked - thank God - was beating the hell out of the shaggy rug, shooting clouds of dust into the room - literally - there was simply too much to suck at any one given place or time.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 2, Letting It Steam, Paragraph 1, Clauses 4-5

If there be more travelers, they are not here with me; they are walking their own roads. And everyone else: they are not walking; they are waiting for the train to take them somewhere. They have refreshments. They are satisfied. They may be hungry for something, but they do not thirst. Whereas I am intoxicated by thirst. I am driven by it. I am woken by its demanding murmurs. It leads me down the corridor tipsy. It lets me fall down stairs. It gives me the visions of a madman. But it is my friend. It leads me to the type of water for which I thirst: the type in which I was baptized: the water of eternal life. And someday, I will drink from the cup that holds it. Someday I will because I insist upon it. And I am willing to suffer in the meantime. I am willing to walk tipsy; I am willing to fall down once in a while. I accept the visions that come with my spiritual drunkenness. Shall I describe them to you?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 4, Self-image, Paragraph 5, Clauses 11-29

After all those empty weeks, the smell of his cologne was still permeating the room - that fragrance, that fabulous perfume that would always overpower my senses, that would always herald his approach, or distinguish his articles, that would sometimes irritate me, that would surprise me when I borrowed his hat and found it there, that would cling to me when I borrowed his coat and wore it, that favorite scent of his that found its way into everything he touched, everything he left behind, that keeps crawling back into your nostrils even after it first overwhelms you, leaving you dizzy, uncertain for more, but unprepared to resist and quite willing to submit easily to that fragrance, to that feeling of warmth, that coziness that makes itself so familiar after the first few whiffs, that comfortable feeling, that feeling of strength, that security, that presence that never before could I feel so acutely, nor understand so well, as when that fragrance overpowered me in that room, that cold room whose forbidding temperature only strengthened its powers, leaving me cold and hot and still comfortable, still at home, like spicy ginger ale from the ice-box, a straightforward contradiction, the easiest pleasure to accept, a momentary diversion really, nothing to worry about, nothing harmful, just plain and simple bliss. Oh, that fragrance was intoxicating.

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.

The light emitting diodes of the console spelled out the time. It was the middle of the night. The dashboard, awash in a dim glow, seemingly floated-a stage lit with miniature footlights. It was polyvinyl chloride. It was dark-like burgundy. Hard, smooth, horizontal, finite, it complemented the straight and endless road. It was: the cross of the crucifixion. I blinked. Was that right? Was the dashboard the beam? the road, the pole plunging headlong into earth? Whither did it will me go?

KOKOMO: Yet again, I'm left holding the wet, dirty towels. Not to worry. It's alright. I don't mind. In truth, if I could spend the rest of my life cleaning up after Fletcher Christian, I would be a very happy woman. Even if that is silly and backwards, that's how I feel. I would never phrase it like that to anybody; I'm not crazy. I'd make him take out the garbage and all that. Alice is right. It's high time I told him how much he makes my heart beat. I could turn it into a joke if it looks like he's uncomfortable. That would be dreadful. What kind of a joke would it be? I need a heart transplant? That's not funny. What am I going to do?

Usage of Into 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.

"The mission failed," said Orbitz Número Dos. "An intruder was aboard. He sabotaged the ship as soon as we were clear of the wormhole. The whole engine blew. Most of the ship fell into the gas giant. The rest fell back into the singularity."

"Who's the saboteur?"

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

Those other guys weren't cowards. People think I hated them. I didn't hate them. They were doing their thing. Their father was a judge. Our father was a capo. You know. Why wouldn't they go into the family business. They were part of the system. The government. If I was one of them I would've done the same thing. Their way of life was to come to our homes and ruin our way of life. It was a war.

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

I am surprised by death. When the bullet entered from behind and the wind began to rush away from me I packed my bags as fast as I could. Every moment I could salvage was stuffed into the nearest carry-on I could find. I thought for sure I would ride that wind away from me. Yet I remained. Locked in a melting prison. The worms now all around.

– from “Shovels Fall,” an interesting story about the cycle of violence throughout history

The orbits of Captain Orbitz as told and retold by trillions of Orion systemizens, indeed systemizens from across many a galaxy, never fluctuated from their purpose of helping Captain Tycho "Tych" Orbitz conquer his home galaxy. Tych was firm from the day he resigned his commision as a courier in the Star Alliance to the day he vanished into space. Many were afraid he would come back. Many more hoped he would. They thought he was out pirating somewhere with Lalunia, his pheromonically irresistible great-great-great-great-niece, or ruling a planet with the beautifully blue Sara Lee, or fighting the jilted queen of the Astrazeneca or playing chess with CAROline the computer that loved him. They didn't know he was dead. They had no idea he had died long before he had even resigned his commission. Before he hijacked the tesseract marking the beginning of his rebellion or piloted the stolen ship Nautilus into the singularity the man had physically removed his own dead body from the bridge. He had no choice. At the time the ship was scheduled to be inspected by Star Alliance sanitation officers.

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.
