Unless, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is kicking around the viability of strengthening his noble Fiction Corpus with a book about science fiction films; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I believe in the viability of exploiting English as an international language for the world. I don't believe in the fatiguing scheme by which English is presented for study.Pointer

Boosting a person's know-how with a language isn't like developing a tougher piece of bronze. A language - a spoken language - isn't just a tool that you can teach yourself to wield with a greater amount of precision. A spoken language can't be partitioned from the competing values of a society 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 person to recite English is to cheat him out of its cultural context. A proper educator must develop a strategy for introducing it; the smartest student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe words based on a particular corpus, a set of written works of various size and consistency. This corpus could contain anything from a book about literature to some panchatantra stories translated into modern English. I lost many a night developing my "king-sized" Fiction Corpus to form a precise type 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 shaped a million words and I have divided them, reframing them - not merely to teach the English tongue but to defend the human spirit, and to encourage that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Unless

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 unless in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Unless 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 fucking military is collaborating - do you understand that? They're ready to shell the city - their own fucking city! Can you believe that? Instead of having the balls to go from house to house looking for those faggots, they're gonna drop shells! What the fuck is that? That's why they're trying to evacuate the Old Town. They're sayin', 'Leave your homes: go north.' They think if they evacuate Center City and Old Town by having all those people filter through the northern checkpoints, all they're gonna have left is terrorists. That's bullshit. Unless they say they're gonna shell it, not everyone's gonna leave. Not the old people, anyway: they're gonna sit at home until the radio says they're gonna drop shells - even then they're not gonna move. Anyway, who the fuck's gonna say that? That would be idiotic. That would be like saying, 'Hey, terrorists: wake up for the invasion' - so they can slip away? What the fuck is that? The only terrorist you can recognize is the one that's shooting at you. Otherwise, who the fuck is it? Nobody - it's somebody without papers - I don't know - somebody walkin' off with loot. All they gotta do is drop their weapons and voila: they melt away. It's fuckin' bullshit. It's not fuckin' fair is what it is - but that's life. That's business. Like you, you motherfuckin' pip-squeak: what the fuck is your problem, man? You have got balls to screw me up."

The car in front of us stopped.

Verses 121-122 from the chapter called Arms

"Of course," I laughed. "You're the last Panzer-Tank heir." I was about to say: unless your half-brother and the rest of your family are still alive on Mars - but I stopped myself. That would've been stupid.

Verse 573 from the chapter called Bohemia

"Expedience is not the real reason for this renunciation," I said. "It is the worm of pride and self-proclaimed desert which the State has stolen from the bowels of its Nation, with which it tyrannizes, and which will inevitably be swallowed by the office-workers and clerks, heads of state, and other well-intentioned representatives of national sovereignty who place invisible royal crowns upon their heads, who call themselves public servants, and who dream of reaching into the State Treasury and making gold. Unless, of course, the State and all its god-forsaken machinery is destroyed and buried into ground thrice-condemned to be forever abandoned by the Nation. I curse the State! The three-teated bitch with a rat's tail that bites the Nation's hand! May she forever burn in Hell! May the Krupniks whom she dutifully serves as their familiar themselves serve as her kindling! May they rot! May they be eaten by the starving worm which the Nation, if I have anything to do with it, will regain after countless millennia of well-deserved but long-standing deprivation in the name of progress, achievement and civilization. May civilization reach a new age! May I have something to do with it!"

Verse 323 from the chapter called Vows

When the waitress brought her the drink I ordered, your mother didn't take to it. I toasted her, but she ignored me, of course. The drink was dark. She took the glass and sniffed it. She didn't like it - too bitter, she must have thought. It was a glass of Fernet Stock, an acquired taste for anyone who isn't Czech - unless you happen to be a bitters connoisseur. Your mother wasn't.

Verse 443 from the chapter called Bohemia

If any of this were true, it would've been tantamount to treason, which, for a Supercapitalist, was at least better than bankruptcy - but, thanks to the breakdown of interplanetary trade, thanks to the rise in fossil fuel consumption, and especially thanks to the terrorists for creating the Reserve Army's insatiable demand for oil, the Google Protocol was finally ratified by the United States. If Leonard Cohen-Krupnik had been somehow anticipating this otherwise unexpected development, it would seem as if he were some kind of retrospective gambling national hero. On the other hand, if there were anyone at all with the access to the kind of information - scientific or otherwise - that would've pointed toward the possibility - not to mention the probability - that the United States would take such a drastic, self-flagellating move, it would've been the Russians - but, if the Ukrainians were indeed Russians agents, and if the former Russian spy was in fact still working for someone other than himself, it seemed as if the Russians had been very keen on consolidating a grip on what would soon have become a totally worthless commodity - unless, of course, they were in contact with Panzer-Tank. That's how hard it was to speculate.

Usage of Unless 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.

NIKE: Are you familiar with nomenklatura? those millions upon millions of bureaucrats? whose only interest was protecting their own power and privilege? There was only one thing my father was capable of coveting: control of the Politburo; and, soon discovering that there was no way up or down (unless he stayed a coal miner like his father), he soon realized he could only shift himself left or right, and, since China was also communist, and very critical of Russia, he decided he could only go where all young men desired: west.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 27, Penetration, Paragraph 51

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

I quipped that Nike should never be recorded, unless of course one were involved with interdisciplinary studies. "And an honors student," I laughed. "Nike is capable of extremely fascinating bits of completely random knowledge." I began describing how exasperating it was, but she interrupted, saying that Nike was exactly what she needed: so far conversations had been too small and private, and if there were anyone who could subtly bring together several different conversations into one, it was definitely Nike.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 8, Partying with Intellectuals, Paragraph 2, Clauses 7-11

NIKE: It's a nickname, given to me by my great friend, Andrea.

INDIE: Andrea? Is she your girlfriend?

NIKE: Ha! Absolutely not! Unless he gets a sex change: then I'll consider it.

INDIE: Oh! you mean Giant!

NIKE: Do I?

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 23, Introducing a Female Friend to a Male Friend, Paragraphs 8-12

Nike was shocked. He was appalled. Police officers, despite being the worst kind of swine, should hold themselves with at least a little bit of respect, especially when they're idly standing along the Queensway of all vices. Nike was so ashamed he sat down near the bushes. Things were not going well. No one wanted to answer his questions unless he were going to negotiate business. Nike was not that foolhardy - at least, not yet: the pain was too much. But, because of it, he had to walk around like a grown man with rickets. Even the fat girls were laughing at him. Even the ugly girls, the cut girls, the destroyed and overly diseased girls were laughing at him. He was humiliated.

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.

"Has it ever occurred to you that the great river might be inside the mountain?"

"The dragon is inside the mountain," said Magog. "Unless it's the kind that swallowed you and stopped the Greek boat."

"What is that supposed to mean?"

"It means you never once mentioned that I carved a hole in the boat and made it sink. If I hadn't paddled my way back to you on flotsam, you would have drowned."

– from “In the Beginning, There was Gog,” a fantasy story featuring a world full of dragons

On the surface, the river was calm. Thoughts of rapids and waterfalls injected themselves into Tae's mind. He imagined Bo drowning. He shook his head. He solemnly vowed never to return without her, no matter how far he would go. If the river drained into a massive whirlpool, he would jump into it. He would die in its murky depths looking for her body.

Tae noticed the river growing narrow. It was getting deep. If it emptied into a lake, he thought, Bo would be saved-unless there were a lake monster. Tae rubbed his eyes. It was useless to worry.

– from “How Tae & Bo Took Over the World and Kung & Fu Didn't,” an apocryphal bible story about patience

"A river runs through here," continued the woman with the strong features. "The plain is large enough for all our needs. We should immediately begin preparing rice beds and building levees-unless the three of you want to starve."

– from “How Tae & Bo Took Over the World and Kung & Fu Didn't,” an apocryphal bible story featuring political intrigue

"If that be true, why are we bargaining with daggers and dead horses instead of with gold?"

"It is none of your concern."

"That is where you are mistaken. I am on a holy quest. I cannot be tainted by villainy."

"I am no villain," cried the woman, "unless it be a crime to love. Have you not dispatched your whole family to the underworld? Let me ask me: is that how all your holy quests begin?"

Usage of Unless 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: I listen to you. I know you're upset. Unless you can think clearly about what's at stake, you shouldn't commit to it.

FLETCHER: My judgment has been clouded. Your perceptiveness never ceases to amaze me. I only hope that someday soon I'll be worthy of your favor.

KOKOMO: Time can only strengthen our bond.

FLETCHER: I get impatient. I want certain things to happen now.

KOKOMO: Believe me: it's better to wait.

FLETCHER: Agreed.

– ACT I, lines 1352-1357

GREY GOOSE: I've waited long enough, woman. I deserve an answer.

MS. JACKSON: I will not answer you.

ALICE: Why not?

GREY GOOSE: She's guilty.

MS. JACKSON: I've done nothing wrong.

GREY GOOSE: Swear to it.

ALICE: There's no reason not to tell the truth.

GREY GOOSE: Unless you're a rat.

ALICE: Remember what I told you. There are three things which everybody is owed: honesty, gratitude, and remorse. As my grandmother taught me, one must say, 'Thank you,' and 'I'm sorry,' and, by gosh, one has to mean it. If you've had cause to hurt somebody, you should tell that person you're sorry and you'll try to make sure it never happens again. Unless you know it will - in which case, you recognize that something is difficult. If it's something to which your partner is contributing, you make a resolution to cooperate on that. Eventually, things work out. If you've done nothing wrong, you thank your partner for his interest, humbly deny any involvement, and proceed to send him off on his merry way. I took marriage lessons with Luke for a year. They were quite helpful.

MS. JACKSON: Thank you.

– ACT I, lines 1101-1110

LESBIAN: I can put this one back. No one can accuse me of stealing it. I just borrowed it to show that some things in life are more important than others. Whom am I kidding? I took it to get into my landlady's panties. I'm a terrible human being. There have been worse than me - like the person who stabbed that poor girl sixty-two times: the first murderer this island has had to fear in more than one hundred and fifty years. Both suspect and victim were like me: alien to this place. Why did we come? What did we hope to find? Peace? We scared her off. Happiness? Satisfaction? Understanding? Why here? Why do we trespass on other people's land? It stands in our way - but of what? There's nothing beyond what's right in front of us at any given time. There's no way of knowing that unless you trespass. All that one can hope to do is make as little damage as possible along the way. We are all criminals, whether we like it or not. Though some of us are big and some of us small, we are all cut from the same dough. That's not the easiest thing to believe when one man robs or kills another man. What was my crime? Why am I punished? Why am I the only one who's alone? Or is it just my imagination? Are there others out there who can see me? Who know me? Who can feel my pain? If there are, I salute you. I would kiss you if I could. I can't, so I just say, 'Thank you.'

– ACT II, line 583

MS. JACKSON: Oh, that takes my breath away. Do you think he saw us?

LESBIAN: I don't think so.

LESBIAN: Why?

MS. JACKSON: My son is an expert tracker.

LESBIAN: How is that possible? What's there to track on Norfolk?

MS. JACKSON: Nothing - unless it's human.

LESBIAN: He takes after his old man.

MS. JACKSON: Don't mention him. You'll spoil my mood.

– ACT I, lines 880-888

FLETCHER: It was tough. They didn't have many farming tools. In fact, all they had was a broken shovel. They did have some hammers and some crowbars. They used that to bore a hole through a rock. They put their gunpowder inside and blasted themselves a cistern. They were lucky that the ship's armorer was part of their crew. He could use the ship's bellows and the anvil to make new tools. Unfortunately, soon after they got there, his Tahitian consort fell from a cliff and died - apparently while she was gathering birds' eggs. It didn't take long before he was threatening to leave unless they allowed him to take one of the Tahitian men's wives. Nobody was very happy about that, but he was the blacksmith. They couldn't afford to lose him.

Pfizer scoffed. "Nobody from Earth gets elected anymore. Not unless you're a hybrid. We've gone from the center of the arm to a backwater. It makes me want to move to the Orion cluster."

Sara Lee's eyes widened. "Would you really risk it?"

– from “Titan's Reign,” a science fiction story from which light cannot emerge even when it's traveling at light speed

John nodded. "Unless he got another one." Proctor was already out the door. He called the policeman up. He passed him on the stairs. When he heard the door to the hallway shut he went back up a flight. To the floor below John's apartment. He found the right door. He kicked it open. Inside stood the shadow of a bed. A desk. John went to the window. He opened the curtains. He started rummaging through the drawers. He didn't have to look for long. "Dear beloved," said a letter. It listed the names of the victims. Starting with Emily.

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

Two years and still counting. No word from the devil. The bitch made promises. A fat check. Enough to pay for surgery. Where is she now? Two yards under. Seventy-two inches. I did the math. The scientist in the east wing told me that much soil would weigh about a ton. That's two thousand pounds. Way more than I can lift. I'm a big girl. The bitch that took my cigarettes was a tiny little thing. Even if she did come back from hell she'd never get out from under that earth. Unless they dig a hole next to her. I wish I knew where she was buried. I could do something about it.

The following day the man came back. He asked me what I was talking to myself about and I told him I was mulling over current events. Politics in Moscow. He wanted to discuss it with me but I refused to talk to him unless he came inside. So he came inside. He said his name was Putin. Which I told him was similar to my own name Bongani. I asked him where his friend was and he told me that his friend had a lover. I told him I hoped he wouldn't say the same thing about me. We laughed over that. He left in good spirits.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story inspired by events that in some places were reported, though the details are fictional

Branca lives in California now with her husband. Her old torch-bearer, Fr. Rebelo, lives outside Boston. I'm not sure when they last saw each other but it couldn't have been long ago.

In fact, old Sir Lima announced at that wedding that henceforth a Lima marriage would not be valid unless performed by Rebelo.

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.
