Over, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal refuses to debate the notion of reinforcing his resplendent Fiction Corpus with some really bizarro fiction; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I accept the potential of harnessing English as a global lingua franca. I don't trust in the altogether plodding blueprint with which English is presented for study.Pointer

Boosting a person's deftness for a language isn't like bringing about a more prodigious quern. A language - a living language - is not merely a tool that you can learn to manipulate with a greater amount of precision. A shared language can't be isolated from the shared logic of a recognized nation 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 man to recite English is to cheat him out of its cultural context. A good instructor must have a blueprint for introducing it; the bravest student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define a language on the basis of a particular corpus, a body of written works of various scope and consistency. This corpus might include everything from a book about literature to some real science fiction romance. I lost many a night forging my "cavernous" Fiction Corpus to form a precise kind 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 devised a million words and I have enumerated them, reshaping them - not just to teach an American tongue but to promote the human soul, and to coax that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Prejudice 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

By the end of my first week in Europe in 2011, I had bought a car and out of the blue had met the woman who would join me on a 6,000 mile trek across the European continent, sharing the beat-up car that I had bought and the one small tent from Walmart that I had brought along with me on my flight.

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.

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.

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 Over

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 over in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Over 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.

In Poland, the richest man in the country, Leonard Cohen-Krupnik, was accused of shady dealings with a former Russian spy. Krupnik, in possession of the largest individual interest in the country's largest petroleum dealer, was suspected of conspiring with the President of Poland and others in government to sell the Russians a refinery in Danzig as well as a controlling interest in the country's largest petroleum dealer, which would place, on the one hand, Poland's energy sector into the hands of Russian agents, and, on the other hand, millions upon millions of dollars into the hands of Krupnik and his conspirators.

Verse 307 from the chapter called Adolescence

The Americans formed a giant shield between him and the Earth made of ships full of soldiers from different countries, and, by the blessing of the United Nations, they demanded he withdraw. Sadatmo tried to negotiate - in the meantime, he signed a peace treaty with A/COMP. He took hostages, then released them. The Martian Governor tried to negotiate, but the Americans were intransigent, doubling their number of troops.

Verse 124 from the chapter called Childhood

Jesus's mother was so mad. She found him sitting on her father's front porch, which was narrow, slightly wider than the door itself, and covered on either side. Two short benches on either side faced each other. Jesus was sitting on one of them. He wasn't hiding; he had sat there on purpose so his mother would find him there suddenly and be compelled to sit down in front of him, rather than shout at him from a distance. He wanted her first question to be: "Why did you lock us inside?" It was perfect: just as he planned. In as few words as possible, Jesus explained the injustice done to him by the girl's father and the insult of second prize. Jesus's mother weakened: with less anger, she explained how poor his family was, how they spent everything on keeping him in the United States, and how they couldn't spend money on stupid prizes. The pencil sharpener, whether he liked it or not, was his prize no matter what: even if he had won the race, he still would've gotten it. Now Jesus was mad both for losing the race and for being poor. He was sentenced to his room till evening.

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.

How often does one see the complete horizon? How can one take measure of its magnitude? If the horizon were to fall, or spin around, jump up and leave us, what would a human see? Would we see its true dimensions? Would we not be overwhelmed? Would it not be aweful? If you consider this, my sister, you will begin to understand how I feel.

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

You remember, dear brother, when you first met Indiana: we were fourteen years old on Lake Ontario, staying in a burgundy-colored house. Our cousin was teaching us how to play croquet, and you: you were already winning. I remember her getting very annoyed, but I was detached: too busy singing that song- the one about summer waiting for us to enjoy it - although by singing I mean repeating the chorus over and over again, since I couldn't remember any of the verses. Up the small hill, our mothers were lounging in the shade of a tall willow tree. It was very cold in the shade; it was very cold for summer - so when our cousin purposely hit the ball straight into the lake, you were the only volunteer.

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

Waiting a few seconds to make the moment more dramatic, I mustered in my throat as stern a voice as possible, and just when it looked like malice and cruel amusement would triumph, I yelled out three hundred dollars with coldest passion. It caused a sensation, a sweet and climactic joy for which no other bidder was prepared. Almost immediately Barbara was sold, causing a general sigh of relief that passed over the crowd, enveloping Barbara's own satisfaction as if they were apologizing for what almost happened, congratulating themselves at the same time for being able to enjoy such a dangerous game so successfully.

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.

Shephard sped up. He got close to the truck. There was a tarp over its bed. He came alongside. He peeked underneath the canvas. There was something green. It was a watermelon. The truck was full of them. If he dumped them, thought Shephard, the humvee might crash. At the very least, it would slow it down.

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring an intelligence agent

"Don't be afraid," said Nike. "That's just my ride. My friend was looking for me." The woman held her tongue. "You shouldn't be walking out here: it's dangerous." Silence. "Criminals are known to drive around. They prey on lonely people." Silence. "I'm not one of them. I'm not supposed to be here. I'm passing through. You shouldn't be alone-do you have a phone?"

The woman opened her mouth. She hesitated to speak. She finally said, "I'm not alone."

– from “Paris Is For Rapists, Too,” a ghost story featuring poverty of the mind

(KOKOMO exits. GREY GOOSE enters.)

GREY GOOSE: My darling Polynesian beauty, Fletcher must be right. It's pointless for me to put the moves on you - especially since it's obvious you're in love with him. My chances of success were always slim. I never lost faith in a woman's whim. I was certain, if I tried hard enough, you would let me taste-test your sweeter stuff. Each one of my advances you rebuffed. You're too good. My situation has changed now that my dear wife and I are estranged. Perhaps some trickery can be arranged. If I were to slip softly into your bed, not smelling like chattel, but like that perfume you gave my son - that little brat - who cares more about annoying my wife than pursuing the love of his own life, even though I'm the one she causes strife - perchance I might convince you with a kiss - before you discover my artifice - that I am the best way to earthly bliss. It would give me joy. My desire to light this house on fire would be assuaged. Despite what I have said, I will never ignite another house again. I am reborn. Ever since your mistress unleashed her scorn, making me sit in filth, lost and forlorn, in my old cowshed, I have taken stock. I'll no longer blindly follow the flock. I cannot yet say the same for my cock. If my wife's got a lover, I'll be damned if I don't. I'm not going to be crammed away. I'll come back with my monogrammed pajamas. I'll drink champagne and cut loose like there's no tomorrow. I'll introduce Kokomo to my little one-eyed goose and she'll say I'm her daddy. My excitement notwithstanding, I must not invite suspicion. I'll save my strength for tonight!

– ACT II, line 30

FLETCHER: We were just getting started. Mother hasn't even seen us doing it.

FLETCHER: After all the effort we put into making her work - and the mess we left.

GREY GOOSE: It's a damn shame.

FLETCHER: The least we can do is clean her up before Mother gets a chance to use her. Wouldn't you want her to be clean before you start sticking things inside her?

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?

Usage of Over 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.

When Proctor got home Elizabeth was packing her bags. She was going to her sister's. She didn't want Proctor coming along. She told him to look at the news. John Gamble was all over it. So was his dead husband. Found in a love nest. Which sources claimed he may have shared with a cop.

– from “We Need To Talk,” a mystery story featuring a nude model put in a weird position

The beautiful Branca was the first child born to Sir Lima. The first of ten. I'm sure she was and remains his pride and joy. I wouldn't know. I've never met the man. Or Branca. Everything I know about her and her family comes from the boy who lived down the street from them. The boy who grew up to be a priest. A professor. The boy who to this day at the sheer mention of the name Branca leans back his head, inserts hand into shirt and begins violently pumping the fabric as if pistons were about to explode through his chest. I wish he wouldn't do it. If he tears a hole in his shirt I won't buy him a new one. His tastes are too expensive. That's his Hong Kong upbringing. His vow of poverty hasn't done much to squash it.

– from “Beautiful Branca,” a true story that isn't entirely factual if remember correctly

My father came from a Ukrainian family but he was born in the United States. He spoke English. Unlike my mother. The most she ever managed was an awkward "Would you like anything to eat?" whenever I had a friend over. Which wasn't very often.

– from “The Most Idiotic Actress,” a fictional story that has only a few facts mixed up as far as the author knows

Due to a law passed by the town government the development was never completed. Of the houses that were built all were on Login Road and passed to City Rural Route 15 with the exception of one house which was on Login Road but faced Profile. Its address was Profile at the end of a vast stretch of undeveloped land with no mailboxes. Logically it would have made sense for the city carrier to service that mailbox. Fortunately logic had nothing to do with the process. Profile was rural territory. Any box on Profile belonged to the rural craft. The only question was whether it would be Rural Route 4, Rural Route 2, or Rural Route 6 which gained the prize.
