Binding Conversations

I try to live
and feel
and think
and strategize win/win
in that in-between left and right
systemic ecology and global, multicultural theology,
natural relationships and spiritual polypaths,
resilience and resonance,
yuang and yin
explicating and implicated,
extrinsic and intrinsic,
inhale and exhale,
and depression repression suppression recession oppression,
positive and not negative
1 and 0 double-binary

Universal One:
Our Yang goal,
to merge with multicultural empowerment
beginning with polypathic conservations
of intersectional webs
for regenerative life EarthSystem,
And polyphonic
positive harmonic
liberal lovers

Unitarian Zero:
Yin mentoring
energy democracy
within cooperative becoming
belonging health
supplanting left-brain dominant egocentered
longing for autonomous
divisive wealth
empire-building disempowerment
of all Alien win/lose predators

Universal One:
Rather than colonizing history’s
diversity into a single monocultural Yang dogma,
Taoism, like Zeroism,
is a nondualist philosophical tradition
to which no patriarch
has ever been historically validated
with overpowering win/lose colonizing effectiveness
and capitalistic wealth

Unitarian Zero:
Belonging to Earth’s creolizing
multiculturing ecological process
of regenerative health empowerment,
in a 2020 nonsermon
not entitled “Why Unitarian Universalism is Living”
non-revered EcoFeminists sing
and fire-circle dance
to experience reconnected ecological religion
that has always HolyWind and Spirit
indigenously existed everywhere,
and to which everyone
of polypathic left and polyphonic right
ego/eco-balancing health/wealth note
throughout herstory
has always belonged

sacredly and secularly
spiritually and naturally
theologically and ecologically
yin with yang
right with left
Both/And with Either/Or
intuitively felt and deductively thought
imagined and remembered

win/win compassioned
primally empty empathic ego
and secondarily
fully ecosystemic,
timelessly eternal
becoming and belonging
refining and defining
inhaling and exhaling
precessing and recessing
re-investing and divesting…

Harmonic Home

My next right climate,
will amply express interdependent health values,
need for belonging,
wanting to grow in resonant meaning,
cooperative resilient becoming
GoldenRule cooperative
Win/Win non-zero sum energy faith-filled;
My next right/left multiculture

Will be felt
to become known;
Will be ego-known
to become eco-home.

Some inside/outside interdependent climates
are a better known fit for Now

And Now is this timeless moment
between historic memories,
warm and cold,
fertile and barren,
And future multiculturing images
of creolizing warm more than colonizing cold,
of fertile more than barren,
of love more than hate,
of life more than dying,
of compassion more than violence,
of Yes more than not known Now.


Fragile Supremacy

Does it always feel good to be King?
Or Queen?
PolyPathic Genius?
PolyPhonic Perfect Pitched Prophet?

White fragility,
like loneliness,
is the psychic
and economic
and disempowering risk we take

Each time and place
we consciously impress
subconsciously oppress
unconsciously suppress
anti-consciously repress
over-invested white male privileged opportunities

To recognize cultures as polycultural systems
and climates as polypathic networks,
sometimes health and wealth balanced polynomials
and sometimes more monochromatically problematic,

Played out
in win/lose economic capital advantages
and egocentric/anthrocentric
competing political game environments
assumed to be ZeroSum
by left-brain dominant win/lose energy conservationists
and also NonZero-Sum
co-arising dipolar 4-season revolutionary
by right-sacredmind win/win emergent progressivists,
change agents vulnerably fragile
and transparently eco-feminist privileged.

Games of physical aggression
too often produce violently wounding
retributive justice strategies
and spiritual
metaphysical detachment
from disempowering privileged intent

Games of metaphysical aggression
grow out from leftbrain dominant language,
patriarchal-ism word and value choices
labeling win/lose natural realism v
win/win liberal in love too optimistic v
lose/lose conservative of static entropic death
too pessimistic
too fragile
too privileged to feel

Ecologic-rooted theologies on sacred Right
and theological ego/eco-logos
for win/win feminist Left

Physical fragile metaphysicians
and metaphysically privileged win/win healers

Does it always feel good to be King?
And Queen?
And Diva?
And PolyPathic Genius?
And PolyPhonic Perfect Pitched Prophet?

Who would know
with ultra-nonviolet gratitude
this empowering East side
of Gaia’s BlueGreen Earth?


LifeStyle Synergy

Part of me longs to reside in
a high functioning
win/win cooperative community
of resilient left hemisphere,
resonant right hemisphere,
polypathic/polyphonic communion.

Part of egoself-care wisdom
and longing
feels drawn toward eremetical asylum
more than gregarious shared sanctuary;
to solitude,
natural sounds and sights,
green new/old deals,
communions of egalitarian interdependence,
more internally holistic intersections
noticing sacred global beauty
in local experiential truths
mundanely secular.

Yet the best part of my internal ecosystemic awareness
wants both,
wants Earth’s all,
longs for cutting edge win/win communion,
healthiest wealth,
resilient resonance
restoring ego/eco co-investments,
just truth and beautiful mercies,
graced bounty,
synergetic integrity,
robust democracy of healthy hermits.

Too unneedy greedy,
the sound of two co-arising hands
not clapping,
I unrealistically realize
longing in belonging.


To Free The World

I heard today
a corporate goal
“To free the world of cancer.”

What I heard, instead,
“To free the Earth of human toxic nature.”

Often rooted
in feelings of not belonging,
not being good enough,
not even fitting in sufficiently,
too toxic,
too loudly aggressive
and/or quietly sinister
to be known and appreciated as I am,
as we are,

Can easily confuse discriminating effect
with intent to discriminate against,

Can confuse left-hemisphere deductive cultural privilege
with Straight
middle-class through filthy rich
Militaristic-Capitalistic Supremacy.

I worry
our left-hemispheres invest too much
in from-above theologically-driven
retributive justice for sins of our Fathers
and anthropocentric analysis

Before noticing possibilities
for win/win economic/ecological
co-passionate empowering feelings
responsible wants
ecofeminist needs,
longings to win by others losing their patriarchal sense of belonging,
longings to win with others winning,
longings to not lose too awfully much more
while over-privileged
and emotively under-educated
right-hemispheres continue to lose hope of safety,
to lose faith in economic/ecologicaql co-investment
through resilient/resonant cooperative thoughts
and feelings and actions,
non-violent communications and co-educations
featuring GoldenRule energy democracy
listening and speaking,
acting and reflecting,
regenerating positives and degenerating negatives

Which generally involves
a great deal more curiosity-driven listening
for win/win neglect,

And a lot less brazenly proclaimed shaming
and blaming
for past win/lose abuse,
like a cancer
rabid and viral Yang
overpopulating living Earth
while not worshiping Her

Right hemisphere
sacred flow of yin-time
dipolar co-arising ecological
warm-latticed womb
of energy democracy motions,
more win/win
empoweringly benign.


Analogical Suggestion

What I have been suggesting…

You may call your reasoning “suggestion”
but that makes your voice no less urgent,
explicit as an analogy
suggests metaphoric interdependence.

What I might support–
We all live in and on double-binding Earth
double-binary mindscaped
and body-acting
motion suffering and pleasured natures

And, right-hemisphere spirits of regenerate DNA strings and webs,
primal attachments
and pre- and re-attachments,
and mistrusts
and distrusts
and active restoring retrusts;

Double-binary bilaterals
like Yang power and Yintegrity,
like One known and Zero felt
like Ego being and EcoPolitical becoming,
like Resilient win/lose dissonance and Resonant win/win confluence,
like PolyPath egos toward PolyPhonic eco-muses,
like complex Polynomials regenerating not(not) MultiCultural His/HerStory,
like Horizontal equations and DeepVertical intersectionality,
like 3D Atoms and 4D spiraling WaveLinears,
like Space spheres and BiLateral Time global networks,
like InFormation unfinishably alive
and ExFlowation phishing life and death co-arisings.

[Warm co-passionate co-presence,
active listening,
responsive hope,
curiously immortal courage…]

Are we safer together than apart?
Do we mutually matter?
Are we still actively whom EarthTribes
are win/win becoming integrity?


The Climatic Collaboratory

I don’t recall whose inspired idea it wasn’t
to invite the math professor
into our Therapeutic Collaborative Laboratory.

I do recall when I first heard her speak
of cooperative polynomial qualities
for improving ego/eco-therapeutic communications.

She was, of course,
in the back of the room.
I noticed her on my way in,
wondering if she might be a drag queen
prepared to go onstage during our Tea Dance,
scheduled much later on this sultry summer day
at Unitarian University,

Where all our truths combined are universal,
and no segregated truth
could possibly be trusted
without timeless collaborative scrutiny,
labored oratory
struggling to survive another day
in this urgent spacetime Laboratory.

I don’t remember
exactly what the facilitator’s question was,
but our topic was how to best quantify
evidence for Continuous Quality Improvement
of HealthCare
for Earth
and for all EarthTribes of interdependently webbing life.

I do remember
she did not raise her hand,
nor ask for the wooden talking stick,
but barged right in and on
as if bottled up impatience
could be spilled
to fill this collaborative space
through time.

“In MacroEconomic studies,
ecological and political resilient health care
empowers optimization
through co-passionate
or at least this seems true
whether inclined toward LeftBrain polypathic
or RightBrain polyphonic, better sung than said, muse-theory.”

Silence ensued
as both our lefts and rights
invited a collaborative exchange
to see if we might individually
and then collectively
make any sense of this,
but she went on to fill this vacuum
with nervous left-brain inferior interior complexities…

“Resilient health care consumer optimization
is also organic health care producer creolization,
together pursuing win/win resonant attachments
best when rooted in trust-based
deep learning cooperative communication”

“But, optimizing such resilience
invites a balanced collaborative event
in which left-hemisphere polypaths
find equal interdependent rights
within not-not co-passionate teachings
against lose/lose degenerative
untruth trends,
right-hemisphere poly-musicians
artistic talent refines win/win regenerative
wealth-orchestral trends.”

Such resonance was unprecedented
in our Collaboratory.
now compromised by some soft slight snoring sounds,

“This bilateral balancing algorithmic metaphor
notices Tit for Tat Win/Win game strategies
are left-hemisphere deduced
as either EgoTit or EcoTat,
while our laboratory’s right-hemisphere induces both EgoTit
and EcoTat more heuristically held
in alpha rhythms co-arising integrity
of +1 universal polynomial language
equals (-,-)0-sum-core,
a more co-present uniting interdependent web
of not yet Yang and not yet Yin double boundaries
in our internal yin/yang bilateral spacetime labs

For prime 4D cooperative Tit/Tat
resilient DNA regenerative
optimization trends.”

I don’t recall
if this was the tipping over point I fell asleep
or if I did continue with more lucid notes

“Like the co-passionate original relationship,
health/secular and wealth/sacred co-empowering interrelationships
of thymine and cytosine,
adrenaline and oxytocin,
testosterone and estrogen,
x and y polynomial binomials 1 and 0
ecologically numerological
ego-unitarian integrity
and eco-habitat’s EarthUniverse balance
when (+) equals double-binding binomial (-,-)
interdependently health resilient
cooperatively harmonic,
not so chaotically competitive.”

I turned over
in this Collaborastoried silent rest,
wondering how long before recess
so we could go outside
to sing and Tea Dance
with the drag queen in the back row.

“Resonance, like music,
is not so chaotically competitive
and not so complexly,
darkly negative breeding negative
chronically stubborn left-hemisphere supremacy
secularizing predative either/or thinking
while evolutionary feelings,
if external v internal
then internal v external climates of dissonance, degenerative
mistrust within chronic dominant aggressives,
creating rabidly critical climates
of monoculturing despair,
hopelessness about future resilience
of healthy
multicultural self/other-governing resonance
of all spacetime Collaboratories.”

It briefly occurred to me,
with some rush of paranoid alarm,
maybe the math professor’s laboratory
has no Off switch.

within meta-collaboratory systems
within interdependent webs
and strings of bilateral time
and umbilical nature/spirit nutritional cords
of passionate co-attachment relationship
speak and listen back through space
toward our original tipping point
of bilateral co-arising
4Dimensional fractal/octave ZeroZone
not insufficient not time
co-gravitating yang/yin health
found inside regenerative nature/spirit ZeroCore sums
co-arising win/win soul algorithmic networks
curiously exploring integral collaboratory health potential.”

I remember walking out
in side by side silence,
induced by sleep
or seduced by alpha rhythmic slumber
or deduced within Earth’s win/win gaming spacetime
I don’t remember
if the math professor
really was a drag queen,

But, I do remember
she was sitting
then standing,
then speaking
from the back right through left row.
