Under, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is poring over the potency of extending his prodigious Fiction Corpus with a rehashing of the bible story; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't challenge the idea of legislating English as the world's second language. I do reject the unnewsworthy technique by which English is taught.Pointer

Fortifying one's handiness with a language isn't like producing a faster boat. A language - a living language - is not merely a tool that you can teach yourself to employ with greater amounts of precision. A common tongue cannot be sequestered from the competing values 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.

To make a man recite English is to cheat him out of its cultural context. A worthy instructor must have a strategy for introducing it; the prudent pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define words based on a specific corpus, a set of written language of various size and consistency. This corpus can contain everything from a book about literature to a lot of novels. I suffered many a sleepless night creating my "considerable" Fiction Corpus in order to form a special 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 fashioned a million words and I have evaluated them, reframing them - not just to teach the English language but to defend the human soul, and to pressure that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Under

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 under in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Under 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.

The Commandant's pessimism, on the other hand, was understandable. In those days, on the one side, neo-Nazis were winning local elections in Germany; on the other side, Belorussia's president made himself president for life: in a referendum which most people believed was fraudulent. Meanwhile, a Ukrainian opposition leader was poisoned. Everywhere it seemed that democracy was failing.

Verse 306 from the chapter called Adolescence

When we got to an underground garage, Jesus said, "What's going on?"

"We have to switch cars."

Verses 69-70 from the chapter called Arms

But Sadatmo was stupid. Dhagbod was one of the largest fossil fuel shippers in space, but the company, under Sadatmo, had spent ten years and almost all of its revenue in a fruitless war with A/COMP, its rival, which was founded, in the years following Yellowstone, by a man named Shiza Rahpa Lavi, a talented army officer from Earth. During the second explosion of Yellowstone, known as 'The Second Coming,' Lavi stepped down in favor of his son, Moe Shiza Rahpa Lavi. But Moe Shiza was forced by his enemies to seek American aid, which only came with the promise of opportunities to spy on Mars, and with which Moe Shiza was able not only to consolidate his power, but also to accomplish massive growth in transportation and water projects. This success proved to be his downfall, as growing revenue from petroleum sales accentuated Moe Shiza's autocratic leadership: he was unable to hide his unfair distribution policies and other corrupt methods from the average employee. People were so upset, they chased Moe Shiza Rahpa Lavi right into the arms of the Americas. Even after a bunch of disgruntled A/COMP workers captured fifty Americans, the U.S. government refused to let him go. There was chaos in A/COMP. Some kind of hostile take-over was imminent.

Verse 120 from the chapter called Childhood

"God knew His servant was remiss: in granting my wish - my request for a sibling! - He knew I could only pay Him with ingratitude. He sends me a sister and I send her back! What wretched curse behooves my soul? Must I have chosen such a destiny? What fate conspires with wolves and dogs to make me find your broken neck? O wretched curiosity! (whose boon for Man far outstrips its bane!) Why sniff? So many things can be poison! What sensations must have twirled around your virgin head! They drove you to the open window - for air, no doubt (even though its unadulterated nourishment has long been lacking). What confusion must have taxed your noble mind, which only hours before had entertained simple thoughts of worship. 'Holy Mary! Mother of God!' you had said. 'Pray for us sinners: now and at the hour of our death.' She was waiting for you, child! You are with her now in heaven: with our Holy Mother Mary! God bless you, child! You are the instrument of my reformation! The lamb of my destiny! Tell your heavenly hosts that I remember: I have taken to heart - I understand this cryptic reminder of theirs. For too long have I lived in the company of dogs and wolves without lifting a finger in the face of their lies and confabulations. When I asked for you, beloved sister, I was devoted to the truth. We had sung the true words: this land is your land, we had sung. This land is my land. Fate will have to find all those wolves and dogs who conspired against you, child. My punishment has already been paid. There is no greater penalty for a lonely shepherd than his one and only lamb. But when your enemies meet their ends, beloved child, they will not have met a lonely shepherd, but an angry shepherd in wolf's clothing.

Verse 608 from the chapter called Adolescence

"Not since I was back in the States," I said, turning and smiling at the very attractive schwester. "That was a very, very long time ago." She didn't understand Polish though; she smiled, embarrassed.

Usage of Under 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.

As a result, the infamous Marble Arch was unceremoniously removed from its former duty, and placed with what I believe was a scornful satisfaction, right beside the former location of the now infamous Tyburn Gallows. However, this grandiose failure was not meant to honor the lowest elements of society, those people who had struggled and failed so miserably at life. No: it was placed there to mock them. According to the guidebook I bought for you, only senior members of the royal family and one of the royal artillery regiments are allowed to pass under it. You should go and visit; see what the situation is like on the ground: maybe you can sneak under it during the night.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 11, Guidebooks, Paragraph 1, Clauses 8-13

Upon reaching the downstairs room, I closed the door. Going to the sofa, I began to strip. I unbuttoned half my blouse before I tore it off. Unzipping my skirt, I started tugging it down my thighs. I cursed myself for wearing stockings. Rolling one of them down, I looked at the clock: one minute before midnight. Tearing off the rest of my underwear, I cursed myself for wearing so much clothing - but, standing in the middle of the room stark naked, I now approached the fireplace. Kneeling before it, I opened its doors. I looked inside: it was very dirty; the flue was closed. I opened it, letting a small cloud of ash fall: I cursed myself for not preparing it earlier. I looked at the clock. There was still time. I turned myself around, my back facing the fireplace, and, positioning my hands behind me, I felt the cold tile.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 30, Presenting Oneself to a Potential Husband, Paragraph 13

At least I hope to have reminded you of the circumstances under which your relationship with the 'Romaniac' began. It has been a long relationship, but oftentimes quiet and distant, and only recently, I gather, have you had the opportunity to develop it seriously. But I never doubted that it would be provocative: everything about that woman is that way, whether it be innocent or not, and your confessions to me have only piqued an already heightened interest.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 1, Genital Pain as a Result of Physical Trauma, Paragraph 8, Clauses 7-10

I didn't believe her one bit. And I also started arguing that Advent begins on St. Andrew's Day, not on St. Catherine's. Grandmother was not perturbed: first, she corrected me by saying that Advent officially begins on the Sunday closest to St. Andrew's, and then she went right back to her story-telling by mentioning that St. Andrew's was the preferred occasion for maidens to work their magic. Well before midnight, a girl could make several attempts at augury: she could, for example, pray while sweeping the floor with a new broom; she could step on a piece of silver in her room; and my absolute favorite: she could look up a chimney naked. By whatever method she chose, if she were successful, she would see her future husband. For a long time, I had no idea what such a vision would look like, until I tried it myself - but more about that later (in the meantime, see if you can guess where it was, and under what circumstances).

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 20, The Role Of Religion, Paragraph 8

I began contemplating its total volume. "Where is the extra weight?" I thought. "Where is the unwelcome guest? Do I see a perfectly round blackness? absorbing all the light? Do I see it pushing away its neighbors? Yes: I see it throbbing. Little capillaries of red are throbbing throughout its body. See: you are feeding it with your own blood. Stop feeding it! Command your vessels to turn away! Rebuke them! Your own blood is conspiring against you. They are helping the cellular apostate. They are aiding its growth. And you wonder why we are all sick; we are all paralyzed with fear. We cannot speak with authority. But we must speak, brother. Speak and do not fear my ridicule - for only through ridicule may we gain authority." I was thinking this. My loins were screaming it. My organism was trying to communicate this to my ailing brother. Do you understand, sister? Do you see the difficulty of describing this?

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.

Tatum laughed. She gave Uzumaki an icy stare. She said, "It seems a bit more sinister than that."

Uzumaki nodded. He said, "Pat was a decent man. He was a friend of mine. He started gambling. When he said he met your ex-wife in a casino, I wasn't surprised."

"Tell me something I don't know."

"He was extorting bookmakers on the far side. It was his accomplice you saw on the video."

"What about the dirty Manga from Pf Chang?"

"She laundered money."

"How?"

– from “Dirty Manga People Are Disgusting,” a spooky story featuring a moon colony for aliens

"They took Kong's crop. Hong didn't argue. Jutsu tried to stop them from taking Bo's rice. He attacked Kung. Fu retaliated against Nin. She fell on her belly. She lost her child." Kwon paused to let the news sink in. "They threatened to do the same to Do. What was I supposed to do? I had already given you up for dead. I let them take it. I couldn't risk it. My wife isn't as young as Nin."

"I understand," said Tae. "Where is my rice?"

– from “How Tae & Bo Took Over the World and Kung & Fu Didn't,” an apocryphal bible story featuring a frank discussion of rice production

Bo caressed the back of Tae's head. She whispered, "I know." She gazed at the paddies they had made. The hills stretched into the distance like the breasts of sleeping giants. To her, they represented the men who perished under her care. They were the men who judged her for it. They were the men who sent her to this land, so far removed in time and space from everything she had ever known.

– from “How Tae & Bo Took Over the World and Kung & Fu Didn't,” an apocryphal bible story featuring a frank discussion of what society is all about

The man continued. "She's not sure what you'll find. She doesn't mind if you look. The man you know as Uzumaki is not to be trusted. She presumes you were sent here to find a so-called Admiral Flava Flav. She assures you this person does not exist. No self-respecting Manga person would call herself an Admiral. We don't have a fleet. Anyway, don't get into trouble. She understands you're headed to Sams Town. It's not her favorite place. Don't make her go there. That is all."

Usage of Under 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.

AT RISE: KOKOMO is wiping up the floor.

KOKOMO: Clean. Clean. Clean. We are obsessed by cleaning. If space is a giant vacuum, why does all the dust settle here: underneath the table? Why not in the middle of the floor? Where I can see it? Where I can wipe it up with my feet? We know perfectly well why, don't we, Kokomo? Master Fletcher can't be bothered to take off his shoes. Thanks to him, it's: 'wipe the floor, Kokomo.' Yes, Ms. Jackson. 'Clean the kitchen, girl.' Yes, Ms. Jackson. 'When is lunch, dear?' I don't know, Ms. Jackson. Honestly, where does all this dust come from? What am I supposed to do with it? There really is no sense in cleaning more than once a month. Let the moon show when it's time to clean. Ms. Jackson certainly doesn't know. She would have me clean my way right into an early grave. Kokomo was not built for dust. She was built for love.

MS. JACKSON: (off) Kokomo!

KOKOMO: Yes, Ms. Jackson.

– ACT I, lines 1-3

GREY GOOSE: Not to mention this island's penchant for making the most grotesque of assumptions - never mind that. I did a terrible thing in burning down that house: I know it. I've been paying for it ever since. I'm finally sorry for doing it. I don't think I could've said that this morning. Something's changed. I don't want to be like that anymore. I don't want to do those things. I think the Australians should mind their own business; that's neither here nor there. If you didn't squeal my name to the police, somebody else did. I'm going to find that person - not to burn down his house - to talk to him calmly and rationally: to put these absurd suspicions to rest. Everybody deserves to hear the truth, especially the people you love. I was kicked out not because of my reputation or the looks you were getting in town. It wasn't because you thought I killed that girl. It was because I hurt you. I hurt you a long time ago and I've always been too selfish to realize it. I expected you to understand - even though I never properly explained myself. It had nothing to do with you. You were perfect. I loved you. I was afraid of being a father. You know my childhood - or perceived lack thereof. I was insecure. I was scared to death. I panicked. I didn't talk to anybody about it because I was ashamed. I thought that, if you knew, you would despise me for it. You were always so strong and fearless. I envied you. When your family came and asked me what was going on, I lied. I acted as if I didn't care about you anymore: as if I had lost interest. Nothing could've been further from the truth. I was an idiot. I was such an idiot. I'm sorry for that. I'm so sorry for everything. I won't trouble you anymore. Even if you and your friend want to move in together, I won't trouble you. File divorce papers in the morning. You can keep the house - and the sofa bed - and the mattress - and the comforter - and the dishwasher. You can even keep the cook - and the boy.

FLETCHER: (to ALICE) You first.

ALICE: I understand you had jury duty today.

LUKE: Sorry, mate.

FLETCHER: The Kiwi defense lawyer didn't even stand a chance. I've never been so insulted.

ALICE: Why didn't he want you?

FLETCHER: He didn't have to state a reason. It's all the more embarrassing since I seem to be the only man on this island who didn't know the victim.

MS. JACKSON: Don't start that again.

LESBIAN: It's a tiny bug that invades trees and makes them grow abnormal clumps of tissue. It doesn't have to be a tree. I remember my mother's rose-hedge suffering from gall. I had absolutely no idea what it was. I thought it was some kind of strange flower. It started growing these round, fluffy balls of blood-red fiber. I thought it was gorgeous. It has its own name - a beautiful one. It's known as Robin's pincushion.

MS. JACKSON: Oh, Heavens! My pincushion: it's still missing. I'm sorry, Homo. I didn't mean to interrupt.

LESBIAN: It's not a problem.

KOKOMO: There aren't so many tourists back home. The islands are big. Half the land is forest.

ALICE: It sounds nice.

KOKOMO: It's a mixed blessing. Few tourists means fewer crowds but also less money.

Usage of Under 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.

Orbitz Número Dos turned to Orbitz Number One. He ignored the look of confusion in his eyes. "I'm the reason I'm under surveillance," he said. "I've become a Wiki-en, haven't I?"

"What girl?" asked Orbitz Number One.

– 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

"I don't know what came over me."

"Do you forgive me?"

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

My success is built not just on courage and understanding but the worst and most disgusting kind of fear and anger. I cannot separate the two. I keep reaching the same conclusion. That there must be some kind of good in evil. A conclusion which I immediately reject. And come back to. Again and again.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that describes life on this planet despite whatever cornor we're hiding in

Who are you? I ask. The spirit stops. It ponders for a moment as if confused. "I am a revolutionary spirit," it says. "Who are you?"

I share a glance with my comrade. There is a look of understanding in her eyes. I say, "We are the same." The spirit nods. It fades into the wind.

The girl frowned. "What am I doing here?" she asked. "I go to school here. What about you?"

Sir Lewis didn't understand. "I thought you went to that community college. Did you transfer here?"

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.
