“Laying open the soil is like a careful dissection and there is the same astonishment among the students at the orderly beauty of the organs, the harmony of how they rest against one another,
form to function.
These are the viscera of the forest.”
Robin Wall Kimmerer, “Braiding Sweetgrass” p. 233
Climate change environments
with government authorities living inside central-air denial
are like a bullfrog
enjoying a nice warm healthy pond life
and stubbornly doing his best
to continue acclimating
as his pond turns into
a simmering pan of water
developing a fatal case
of climate pathology.
between organic evolving and devolving systems
is often recognized,
even frog to atmosphere deductively analyzed,
as formal verbal-rational logic choice.
Too often slighted
are aesthetic-harmonic forms
of co-arising dipolar functions
within co-passioning messages,
assuming desire for continuing organic-systemic interconnection,
between YangForms of effective verbal communication
and double-binding yin nonverbal enthymematic
we learn this sacred ecology
as we mature in self-governing
with both deductively acquired knowledge
and inductively felt dipolar wisdom,
discerning appositional differences
between regenerate climates communicating healthy WinWin cooperativity,
and degenerate climates
denying self-perpetuating WinLose competitions.
Wise governing choices
are less likely
when YangLeft merely formally correct communication
overpowers rather than co-empowers
YinRight co-empowering functions,
both ego- and eco-systemic,
dipolar creative tensions
healthier than bipolar dissonant noise
of patriarchal capital-hoarding pedagogical dominance,
monocuturing merely formal ascent to short-term Wins
masking descent loss
of anthro-inhabitable Earth.
how might warm-blooded acclimators
define declining climates of competitive pathology?
I don’t know.
Yet I see decline
when I feel it as patriarchal violence
of co-passioning wisdom.
How do you learn the difference
between revolutionary regenerative wisdom
and normal devolutionary dominance
of further articulating details
for merely deductive reason
within side-by-side silos of discovery?
By also learning their cause-effect
correlational dipolar co-arising similarities,
replacing WinLose Either/Or deductive monocultures
with WinWin Both/And reverse-hierarchical
matriarchal polyculturing outcomes,
sometimes revolutionary Yang,
and normally evolutionary double-binding
self-with-other golden ruling notnot Yintegrity.
