East Meets West Association

The East Meets West Philosophy Association
had their annual 2020 conference in Rio,
when and where anything multiculturally lusty
is more likely to happen,
especially between sunset
and sunrise.

and existentially
and phenomenologically
and ecologically
and ethologically
and epistemologically,
and astrologically,
and metaphorically,
it was necessarily
and sufficiently
and justly
and truly
and trustingly at dawn
on a sweltering Saturday morning
that their Friday night communion commencement started
a revolutionary new/old system
of rhetorical left/right questions,
meant to impress
more than depress
future polarized regenerations
and generations
of trans-regenerative Philo/Sophias.

These renewed professional
yet uncompromised consensual issues:

1. What if Earth’s primal meaning
is most satisfactorily
and usefully
and beautifully
and healthily
and resiliently found,
in deep bicameral learning
how to optimize our already co-present regenerative systems?

2. Would co-passions deductively
and inductively
and seductively
and reductively,
but not unductively,
co-arise non-polarizing suggestions
rationalizations for our neurological and psychological,
body and mind receptors
and communal DNA senders
to design
our self/other
ego/eco maximizing
global digestive/reproductive systems?

Green cooperative redemptive economies
more powerfully resilient
than overly competitive
monoculturing hubris systems

and eco-
and ego-systems
absorbing healthy/toxic
redemptive/unsalvific nutrient offerings
through our sense and sensual
listening and speaking
communal organs,

From chakra karmic bottom
grace receivers and sacred givers
on up through
livers taking in and pushing out,
and bicameral hearts and lungs
breathing newborn sexless voices in
and breathing out healthy sensual reborn wounded child
warm-wombed song and dance re-memories
non-verbal then verbal,
nutritiously purposed

Connecting up sacred integrity,
reconnecting downstream secular autonomy
deep and widely satisfying dialogue
hoping for inside Apollonian
and outside Dionysian climates
of compassionate
non-pathological communication
co-arising polypathic secular Philo
polyphonic sacred Sophia communion.

3. How might we,
together more than apart,
make the second non-question,
and endlessly unfinished life opportunity,
much shorter,
vulnerable for self/other health optimizing
secular left-yang nutritional strength
wealthy sacred right-yintegral-fractal-squared-cubed exponential
DNA bilateral structured
nurture-wombing purposeful meaning flow?

4. Healthy LeftUniversal affluence
through transparent/opaque
wealthy RightUnitarian effluence?

5. Apollo
not shrugging off,
dismissing and shaming,

6. Taurus Earth
Aquarian Dawn’s Promised Land with Waters?
(Too lusty, perhaps.)

7. Father God
Holonic Nature/Spirits?

8. East nondualism
feeding and watering
Western dualistic wounds
between pre-
and re-embodied Spirit/Nature
and night dream polyphonic secular ZeroSouls
communicating relentlessly about
Ego’s Zero ZenCenters
healthy feeding
wounded wealthy
Blue/Green organic Philo/Sophia Wombs…

Incrementally and exponentially polypathic co-passioned,
secularly and sacredly polyphonic,
polynomially interdependent,
not yet/still
ex/informative polynomial,
not-not zero-polynomial,

Executive Summary:
Every thing and relationship yields to nothing
as no thing and no relationship
no time and no space
yield every thing and relationship and time
and northern/southern place
to grow and know ourselves
as also compassionate communicating Others.


Conversations in ConScience

Welcome, friends, into this day.
I see we are wearing our Scientist hats today.

John Wheeler: We are the sun’s way of thinking about itself.

Wow, that’s truly cosmic, or kosmic; probably both.
I don’t disagree,
although I do feel slightly used,
and didn’t you leave someone out of our eco-identity loop?
Seems more like we are the sun and Earth’s ways of thinking about ourselves.
Planet Earth became one of the sun’s ways of decomposing it’s less hot self,
and we are Earth’s way of thinking about Her with His nondual regenerative Selves.

Robert Anton Wilson: the universe acts like a chess game
in which the player on the other side remains invisible to us.
By analyzing the moves,
we can form an image of the intellect behind them.

The intellectual image I see forming,
and how about you too maybe?
seems to be fractal-holonic dipolar appositionally structured
to co-arise continuous grace of ecopolitical flow
as ecological full-color-chemistry-fragrant-taste health temporal fold/unfold memes
designing prescriptions for language
as strictures (Julian Jaynes) for bicameral intelligent logos lenses
hoping to continue with more health and less pathology,
like RNA and DNA, for regenerate example.

Steven Weiss: The question ‘Do you believe in astrology?’
is like asking someone if they believe in art.’

Yes, and asking if we believe in the power of love, and health,
and prosperity.
To all the above,
where power of time invested
produces outcomes of happier healthier futures,
faith is not asked where evidence has already become forthcoming.

Rob Brezsny: astrology at its best roots us in the poetic language of the soul,
and isn’t blindly submissive to the values of the rational ego.
It’s here to liberate our imaginations
and encourage us to think less literally
and to visualize life as a mythic quest.

I know nothing about astrology,
but, with a few omissions of “the”
which is nearly invisible in my poetic language of soul,
and some possible additions,
I might also suggest:

Astronomy at its best
roots us in poetic language of ecoconscious soul,
not blindly submissive to LeftBrain’s deductive-reductive values.
The ecology of starlight
and dualdark cosmology
is here to liberate our RightBrain imaginations
and encourage us to think less thinly,
to visualize mythic life as light-quest,
already outlined in planet spacetime spirals
as our revolving
redundant, in function if not form,
recreation story.

Poetic language
is language of Left/Right cooperative discernment,
bilaterally conscient
dialectic souls
organically dancing-waving rings
of and for stardust’s famously bemused plasmatic light.
