With Julian Jaynes
we find an egocentric languaged LeftBrain
developing reasons to sacredly love our healthy RightBrain inductive-integrative SacredPower feelings of Earth’s co-relationship with LeftBrain’s Self-ReGenerating Identity
of BiCameral Ego/Eco-Consciousness.
Later on in the evolution of Positive Psychology,
we find Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
with competitive egocentric dominance
too often ecopolitically suppressing RightBrain flow of integratively abundant,
healthy as also wealthy,
regenerative more than degenerative Positive/Negative Psychology.
Then we come to George Lakoff’s concept of economic and political “BiConceptualism”
which also dynamically evolves nondual co-arising bi-consciousness
of ego-conservationing eco-progressive flow:
“If you have a single, all-encompassing worldview, you use the same basic [healthy bio/ecological systemic] values all the time. It’s easier to be a total conservative or [and] a total progressive [through bicamerally mature-regenerative, confluent rather than dissonant, integrative Left/Right development].”
“But given a human brain,
it can be almost as easy to be biconceptual–
except that moral contradictions do occur
and resolving them does take work by the [cognitive dissonant] brain,
in particular the ventromedial prefrontal cortex [which is the same struggling with/against place Julian Jaynes identifies with reiterative empathic/antipathic maturational evolving of bicameral ego-humanLeft with sacred-ecological Elder Right nurture-systemic-flow consciousness].”
“Biconceptualism is made possible by the [bicameral] brain. First, there is mutual inhibition [either-or messages of mistrust, mutual immunity],
which permits conflicting [cognitive-affective dissonant] modes of thought,
but only one at a time.
Second, there is the difference between general modes of [deductive-Left vertical-hierarchical] thought
versus the special cases [of experiential-affective exegetical memetic bilateral memory RightBrain analogical-ecological trust/mistrust/distrust climates of regenerative/degenerative bicameral fertile-health flow].
Neural[double] binding is the [bio/ecosystemic] mechanism for applying a general [paradigmatic] mode [gestalt] of thought to a special [Left-Right enduringly dissonant rather than resonantly confluent] case, say,
applying general conservatism to health care [as ego-reassurance insurance], or applying general progressivism to global warming [also about climates of health care].”
“In many cases the [network double-] bindings are long-term or [exegetically bicameral-confluent] permanent,
sometimes they are short-term and may [eisegetically, heuristically] change [float, flow back and forth, ebb and flow between conservational EgoLeft and
Someone who starts out being a [Yang] conservative on [powering-over] an issue may change;
that is, the neural [double] bindings from the conservative mode of thought to the details of the issue
may be [revolutioned appositional] replaced
by neural [double]bindings from progressive [Yin-integral nutritional transliterative] thought to the same [ecological health-fertile v pathology-virginal-sacred empty (0)-Core-Source-Sum-SoulFlow] issue [within each nonlanguaged timeless right-now co-present moment of bicameral (0)-HealthBalance Consciousness].”
“The two worldviews are modes of reasoning [and empathic/antipathic feeling],
sometimes [heuristic languaged] conscious,
most often unconscious [unlanguaged empathic trust in maturing EgoTruth as Health-MultiCulturing PolyPathic Tradition].
They are general,
above and across [paradigmatic regenerative-Positive network] issue areas.
General conservative [yang ego-WinLose survivalist dominant] reasoning
and general [Yintegral eco-empathic therapeutic wealth-optimizing flow] progressive reasoning can occur on any health v pathology issue–
in economic [health] policy,
in foreign [political health] policy,
on the [healthy or not so much] environment,
about social [health] programs,
about [health and healthy] education
and [finally] health care,
about [healthy biconceptual NatureLeftDominantYang-SpiritRightYintegral eco-bilateral co-arising systemic] religion,
and so on.”
“Can there be authoritarian progressives [YangLeft-YinRight multiculturally-formed and polypathically-functional mature, regenerative absorbing degenerative subclimates]?
In a word. yes.
One reason is that [phylogenic formative Yang] means and [nutritional-ecological Yintegrity] ends can function as different [regenerative health] domains [hemispheres] of experience.
Thus one can have [health-wealth] progressive ends but [Yang LeftDominant] authoritarian conservative means.
One can even, in the extreme, be an authoritarian [yang-patriarchal hierarchical competitive power-over] antiauthoritarian [yin-matriarchal cooperative flow multiculturing nutritional intent].
Imagine someone who runs an advocacy [climate regenerative health] group that is antiauthoritarian [pro from-below nutritional responsibility for/with integrative flow co-arising nondual empowerment] in its [ecopolitical nutritional polypathic multiculturing climate health] goals,
but runs the group itself in an authoritarian [from-above supremacist LeftBrain EgoDominant] way.
Certain union [and faith and health and economic and political] leaders may be hierarchical and punitive in their [Yang LeftBrain dominant] methods,
but [cooperative] progressive in their [regenerative health co-empathic] aims….
There is a name for people with progressive goals and conservative authoritarian [Yang-exegetical (yintegrity-repressed] means: militants!”
