What opposes enlightenment?
You know, like dusk,
end of a day
through end of time
on living Earth.
What opposes empowerment?
What might oppose Earth’s enlightenment
or throughout all multiculturing history?
I see ego darkness,
inability to cause
and/or perpetuate health,
and lack of effective power
feel like ways of experiencing poverty,
absence of healthy robust choice
as seems to be true of my experience?
but poverty does not feel like a synonym
for dark feelings
Poverty, like racism,
feels more political,
What is the opposite of ecosystemic enlightenment
unsystemic pathological darkness
absence of meaning or purpose,
violent zero-sum win/lose capitalism,
globally generic genocide,
Do these seem to oppose global
and local enrichment
as they do for me.
Perhaps what opposes positive multilateral energy
is always some unilateral form,
of impoverishing experience.
