Seems like this is an important scientific and spiritual question, and a natural-systemic question, but it’s hard for me to hear it within either our scientific or health-care cultures, much less our religious sector.
Perhaps the reason I have trouble finding any difference between endosymbiotic evolutionary theory and temporal growth/decline dynamics, and regenerative systemic communication, information, formation, and bilateral-temporal-neural-biosystemic functional process for developing healthy and safe biosystems, is because there just isn’t any difference, or these are paradigmatic distinctions, sharing one permacultural informational ecosystemic 0-soul eco-normic LifePositive OVER DeathDoubleNegativeBinary WinWin Bionic Health and Safety Cooperative Gaming Theory.
Or, something along those lines, for those into digital-binary gaming systems, which I am not myself; more of a Unitarian-Universal Tao-Zeroist, PostMillennial PermaCulturist for both Interior and Exterior Landscapes, assumed to co-arise as time folds and unfolds co-gravitationally, as Uracil greets Cytosine, as day both greets dark dreams as double-dark gives way to dawn’s enlightenment, as warm fuses all cold climatic elements to transubstantiate light’s cold temporal potential, as summer emerges diastatically nutritious health and heat from winter’s hibernating decomposition and interior landscape purgation of DNA-conflicted Ego’s AngerPast+FutureFear demands for more than Left-brain’s RightFilled Yin 50% of BiCameral EcoConscious Evolutionary-Regenerative, TransParently CoPresent, BiLateral-Temporal 50/50 Balancing EcoLogical Language as Positive=evolutionary regenerative healthy process, while Negative=notpast/notfuture balanced evolutionary regenerative pathological EgoWithinEcoRooted-DNA-temporal/fractal decompositional dipolar-diastatic permacultural ecolandscape WinWin analysis, design, principles, deep learning structure, all deeply eco-ego double-camera logical deductive/inductive-empathic bilateral-temporal neural syntax.
Hmmm. That seems a bit circular and yet run-on, at the same time. At best complex; at worst, merely dense. Let’s try again with this hypothesis.
Maybe there is a difference. In a way this may be like the chicken and egg question. Perhaps regenerative ecosystems are embryonic precursors of evolutionary processed chickens, like Julian Jaynes’ evolutionary theory of Left-brain and language’s evolutionary emergence from Right-Temporal aptic/synaptic Original Intent. Right MindBody is DNA/RNA-ecocentric mute co-empathically LeftDominant/RightRecessive-voiced. DNA is iconic of AnthroCentric Ego’s dominant evolutionary-culturing process, while RNA is embryonic of DNA and EarthOrganic-EcoCentric RightYinYin = LeftYang Tao-(0) Convex/Concave Universal/Unitarian EcoLogical, and PermaCultural Balance projecting WinWin Polycultural slow-growth Optimization Continuous Quality Improvement trends.
Hmmm. Not sure that is an improvement. Well is is shorter. So, moving in the right direction. Let’s try starting with a quote from Andrew Cohen, who knows how to write reasonably-scaled citizens, I mean sentences.
“In traditional cultures, God or Spirit was the unquestioned reference point for higher meaning and purpose [and health and security and medicine].But those of us at the leading edge of modern and postmodern culture today have largely rejected what we perceived as outdated traditional moral, philosophical, and spiritual [Creation Story] worldviews. And, as of yet, we haven’t really found anything to replace them as a source of higher meaning and purpose.”
Hmmm, what if God/Spirit/Energy is ReGenerative Process, the evolution of Time it’s bilateral-dualdark-TransParent-co-arising/gravitational echo-self as DNA-languaged Other? That doesn’t really feel like a replacement so much as a potential “both-and” outcome.
Maybe not. But at least it’s shorter. Anyway, while I proudly claim to be an Andrew Cohen fan, this is a point in “Evolutionary Enlightenment” where we may actually disagree about how we see our present Great Transition, our interior and exterior landscapes of climatic change. I see a remembering that God/Spirit/Energy is regeneratively rooted in the healthy and safe polycultural outcomes of our co-arising evolutionary process, as individuals, as a species, as Bodhisattva Warriors and EcoMessiahs and PermaCultural Designers of Yang-Positive Time convexly explicating OVER YinYin-DoubleNotNot PolyNomial, PolyPathic, PolyMorphic, PolyCoOperative, Multisystemic Bicameral Therapy v. Pathological Cognitive/Affective Dissonance.
It seems like it should be easier, and much shorter, to invest in cooperative political and economic and GodPositive Health Trends, rather than have to competitively deduce and reduce which paradigms and word-choices might grab both your analogical and ecological resonance-optimization trends. Maybe when Goddess Gaia and SunGod once again bilaterally rule our DNA polycultural beehive, we might realize that interior is to exterior as exterior is to interior landscape, implies that if God/Spirit/Energy/Medicine/Health has co-created us in HisYang/HerYinYin image, then each of us and all of us also regenerate HisYang/HerYinYin in our own BiCamerally Remembering ReCreation Story.
If that much makes both evolutionary and regenerative systemic logical sense, then my EgoLeft’s optimal consciousness of self/other identity includes nonverbal access to co-empathic-intuitive-aptic Right MindBody’s possession of health-life back through incarnating regenerational time, and this co-arising awareness is a co-relational sacred trust, and a cooperative co-investment partnership between EgoSelf, nested holonically Interior/Embryonic co-related within EcoProGenitor’s DNA-syntaxed fractal-dialectical-dipolar Golden Rule.
Oh dear, just what I thought we were getting somewhere, all those hyphen-strings of redundantly reiterative adVERBs, acting like linked pearls of nouns, remind me that this is a regenerative-evolutionary creation story still in process of delivery, echoing through great transitional and revolutionary-occupier syntax and permacultural planning and design and doing, becoming. We are God becoming ReGeneratively SelfConscious BiCameral PositiveTherapy/NegativePathology Incubators, in EgoSelf-optimizing grateful service to Future Time’s CoArising ReGeneration.
I don’t know if speaking in capitals really helps, or just gets in the way. It all feels so crystal-clear and profoundly deep, that mere logos-logic sucks all the MythicMajesty out of this contenting life as EarthTribe CoOperative CoMentor, researching together how to optimize life as love, by divesting of interior/exterior angry-past PreMillennial dominantly fearing future absence of EgoMortal Time.
Wouldn’t surprise me if evolutionary process intends regenerative global systemic health, by divesting of degenerative pathological dissonance; whic may have something to do with the coincidence that evil is languaged as backward-reverse-“live”. Then again, it could just be a co-arising nondual coincidence of syntaxed temporal synaptic/aptic Right MindBody memory verbs folding and unfolding in light v. dark as warmlive v. coldevil dialectic dipolar conversation.
Hmmm. Evolving Left predicts ReGenerating Right responding to CoArising Left researching ProcessGod’s evolving re-creation. That reminds me that if you spin Tao’s Yang-Yin icon it could also be 4D iconic of fractal-thermodynamic regenerative, self-perpetuating, self-optimizing, bilateral balance. Really not all that much like my day to day life, where I seem to over value what happens to my ego during the day and undervalue what goes round for my eco during dual-dark TransParent notnot night.
