Herein, the evolutionary positive psychologist’s voice is that of C,
leaning sometimes toward the yang-ego identity side,
while the evolutionary ecopolitician’s voice,
doing his best to play WinWin ecotherapist, is D.
C: The best way to live is by learning to control [Ego-Left] consciousness
D: by also deep learning to ecologically extend RightBrain flowing ecoconsciousness.
To do so, evolution,
whether personal or political larger stage,
cultivates certain permacultural-multicultural nurturing skills.
C: Ego acquires a discipline that at first may seem like mindless ritual
D: to acquire integrative flow,
at first feeling too mindfully rich with interdependently intuited trusting truths,
even manic loss of clear-cut identity boundaries.
But, together, these Yang-Left with Yin-Right conversations,
ecological health discernments,
slow-grow integrative deductive-vertical
spiraling revolutionary flow
with our universal-Yang/Yintegral unitarian order;
where Yang is to universal patriotic political wealth
as Yin integrates unitarian matriotic nutritional health-flow.
C: Unless a person learns to control [Left-Right Balancing therapeutic] consciousness,
he or she cannot achieve harmony with the cosmos,
but will forever remain prey
to the random forces of biology and society.
as we all ecologically learn to both control and communicate
LeftYang/RightYintegral harmonic ego/eco-consciousness,
Earth will continue evolving toward diastatic ecological harmony
within our shared interdependent deductive/inductive climate flow,
but will remain LeftBrain dominantly vulnerable to co-arising nondual coincidental pathological faces
of Business As Competitively Usual
economics and political divestment of sustained health relational time,
and, oh yes, money.
C: Nor will we know how to direct evolution toward greater complexity
unless our [ego] consciousness becomes more complex.
D: Nor will we polypathically know how to co-mentor multiculturing evolution
toward greater regenerativity
unless our ego/eco-conscious energetic balance
becomes more integratively extended.
C: What makes us different from other animal species
is the variety and mutual dependence of our psychic processes.
what makes us polypathically and ecologically similar
to other primates
is this same integrative-symbiotic variety
and multiculturing interdependence
of newer deductive/reductive Left-Yang patriarchal dominance
emerging from Elder Right’s matriarchally embryonic nurturance.
C: Evolution is the [deductively rewarded] history
of the complexity of living matter.
D: And, EarthTribe’s revolutions, within evolution,
are the inductively integrative matriarchally nurtured regenerativity
of ecologically extending families,
ecosystems destined for multigenerational Paradise,
predestined by embryonic DNA/RNA solidarity
of reweaving healthy wealth memories;
time as light’s fertility
with dualdark aptic-integrative hibernation,
MidWay dancing wu-wei CoMentors.
C: We cannot easily advocate a certain preference for complexity,
or relinquish our [ego] responsibility for helping evolution along
D: by seizing our regenerative ego/eco-conscious cooperative opportunities,
investing our eco-integrative RightBrain invitations
to co-mentor multiculturing polypathy along.
