Neglecting Democratic Health

I’m feeling some civil
democratic health

To re-member
monocultural anthropocentrism
is a mental health crisis

In our U.S. Win/Lose normative
miseducational systems,

In our anti-democratic
unhealthy parenting,
self caregiving,
uncare-receiving deformative win/lose
devolutionary anti-thesis

to prophecy ReGenerative Earth’s unParadise demise,
ecologically degenerative
and theologically rationalized:

Earth isn’t Heaven
as Nature isn’t spiritual Nurture,

Derived from ancient win/lose
RedYang autocratic DeathCultures,
warlike celebrations of anthropocentric hubris,
while Earth witnesses
win/lose intention
devolving into loss
and wounds
and suffering
and further loss
and anger about inevitable ego-centered mortality
and fear of win/win multiculturing
ecofeminist cooperative co-passionate indulgence.

Our good/bad faith community clergy
and lay empower/disempower elders
with too much patriarchal capitalistic
monoculturing apartheid experience,
become too comfortable with economic assumptions
of win/lose norms
to advocate for win/win democratically inclusive
and other ego health-invested values
to consistently and cooperatively support
and model
and teach
and feel
and think
and preach win/win compassionate and civil
democratic health,

And not judge and blame and shame ourselves
and each other
into further win/lose present unforgiving
and merciless obsessions
and future self-righteous compulsions,

Democratic cooperative co-investments
in health care systems
as if also a spiritual win/win theological insight
into sensory-sexual-regenerative everyday sacred experience,
as if multiculturally a natural win/win ecological awareness

Also congruent with

To further Earth’s systemic interdependent

And wisest perpetuating win/win interests,

Of Earth’s total cooperative net-value,
rather than Ego’s gross competitive

On Democratic Compassion

A Unified Account of Causation, Constitution, Persistence, and Emergence

Rögnvaldur Ingthorsson
132 Views4 Pages

Metaphysics of properties,
I explore the prospects of a causal explanation of constitution, persistence, and emergence. I will suggest that the idea that causation involves the mutual manifestation of disposition partners allows us to think of compound entities as mutual manifestations of dynamic interactions between the parts that constitute them, and their persistence as a result of that dynamic interaction. However, I think we need to modify the conception of mutual manifestations. The mutuality has been described in terms of the equal importance of so-called disposition partners—pairs of active and passive powers—while the interaction between the objects that wield such powers is characterised as unidirectional; one object acts while the other receives the influence of the action. This view is challenged by the fact that the natural sciences do not recognise any form of unidirectional action. Instead they depict all interactions as perfectly reciprocal, in the sense that whenever one object exerts an influence, the other simultaneously exerts a proportional influence of the same kind on the first, but in the opposite direction. I suggest that to accept the reciprocity of interactions only strengthens the viability of a causal account of constitution, persistence, and emergence.


I wonder if this same causal effective explanation might apply to bicameral co-passion and bilateral health investments, and co-gravitation, for that energy matter, temporal binomial inside/outside space, ego eco-ing experiential neurometric prime relationship of left and right hemisphere co-passionate communion; where Yang=1x and Yin=0y-squared to the four dimensional nutritional recycle of octave double-binary fractal strings of regenerative DNA bicameral bilateral ergodic potential structure of compassionate golden rule consciousness.


Invitation to EarthHealth

Again, with Adam Robersmith,
Taking It Further emphasizing cooperative value choices
in each compassionate win/win moment

resilient outcomes.

What co-passionately discerning choices
can we make today

next year of seasons
restoring environmental
and cooperative economic
and multiculturally healing justice?
Rather than punishing ourselves
and others
for violent win/lose past

climates of internal monoculturing ego-anxiety.

In sacred covenants we have already engaged,
what healthy choices for extended family resilience
do we already support
with win/win cooperative environmental gratitude
and multiculturally interdependent

Let us refuse to remain stuck
in Ego-LeftBrain v. Eco-RightBrain fear

Instead choosing one universal

health-faithful action
in every compassionate moment.

Let us remember

Let’s Become HealthWealthy

In his essay “Let’s Be Reasonable”
Rev. Todd Eklof [The Gadfly Papers]
reduces reasonable to logical;

This is a common left-brain dominant error,
confusion between deductive premises
and coldly reductive conclusions
calculated assuming cause v effect linear formulas
more than feedback loops
of complex neurological relationships,
ecological analogical
experiential math
not reducible to algebraic calculus.

So, this is a big topic
and I can already see right-brain feelers’ eyes glazing,
longing to step into warmer,
more fluid
green organic systems
in which light feeds natural growth
and darkness starves into nutritional dormancy.

Narrowing down to a specific example,
“If an organization has a policy [a left-brain dominant product]
against hiring nonwhites for top management positions,
[T]hen it will not hire a[n Asian heritage candidate]
as its next CEO.” (p. 88)

In linear cause-effect logic,
IF…is the antecedent clause
THEN…is the consequent clause;
If x, and only x,
then y–
a perfect positive correlation
seldom seen in real life’s geometric non-equations,
except where found true
by left-brain definition,
rooted in either true cause
or false effect
dark v light
competitive thinking.

Notice a similar statement
about historical experience,
left- and right-hemisphere resonantly remembered;
not cognitively/affectively dissonant,

IF a culture has a history of not hiring nonwhite leaders,
THEN it is unlikely to hire a nonwhite CEO in the future.

Why would the sun shine on a culture tomorrow
that has never done so in past collective memory?

For left-brain deduction,
either cause
OR effect,
practice could only consistently follow explicit policy
or it would be wrong,
incommensurable with safe precedent,
dangerously unnecessary risk-taking
and unexplainable
within SWM privileged and dominant monocultures.

On the other hand,
perhaps literally
and figuratively,
right-brain’s interdependent web
of complex cause-effect-recause-re-effect
feedback loops and lattices
networks and sometimes chaotically scary lack of stable systems
with accompanying anxiety about what is significant
and safe climate
and what is unpredicted and therefore unknown
and alarming wildness habitat,

Procedural choices,
including designing and development processes,
in a privileged culture
normally follow past historical practice.

predicts calcification;
not positive deviance.

Precedent predicts practice
especially where no explicit prohibitive policy
intending to inhibit past practice
is anywhere within sight
to empower change
in a more therapeutic direction,
to restore justice
non-violent communication
where it has been sadly lost.

Left-brain deductive reason
is reduced to predicting
within the context of linear
either x is an explicit healthy/toxic antecedent
or y is a logically implied
and predictable valid outcome.

Right-brain wisdom from positive and negative experience
is able to extend reasonable connections
beyond what is explicitly logical
within an assumed Win/Lose competitive
corporate capitalist normative system.

IF, and only if, we uncover beliefs about what feels right,
what neurologically AND biologically
and naturally AND spiritually resonates,
within a specific polycultural experience
influenced by far more
than explicit laws and regulations,
by far more than scriptures
explicitly translated and transcribed
down through ages of oral history,
by far more than moral behavioral codes
that do not add to experiential internal conviction,

THEN compassion,
sufficient motivation
to do
and say
and choose what is valid
for healthy interconnected
grace-filled sacred life systems
may be less ignored

In favor of merely logical conclusions
that can feel too aggressive
assertive more than merely rational,
self-assuredly privileged
yet cold
and calculatingly hurtful
when weapons of empowered narcissists
instead of limited tools of non-elite compassionists.

IF StraightWhiteWesternMale incorporated privilege
seems to validly conclude
what also feels organically
and interdependently unreasonable
given contrary historical NonElite experience,

THEN we might release
competitive and privileged assertions
conserving right-brain ignored darkness
where light longs for multicultural
bicameral liberation,
where bright longs for better safe and sufficiently resonant systems
of polypathic thoughts
with long polyphonic systemic feelings
of harmonic secular/sacred
natural/spiritual stability,
[not so much ecological wealth anti-reasoned]
therapeutic integrity

Why Positive is Healthier

Positive values,
like health
are not best built
from Yang’s strong conserving top negative emotions
down to Yin’s struggling positive flow-power intention
toward winning nutrition
while winning integrity’s future nurture.

Health care core values
and truly wealthy WinWin communication manners,
grow out from Yinternal Zero (0)

of healthy left-embodied/right-mind
win-win integrity’s long-term
positive liberal restoration
inviting less negative conserving retribution
for sins of our mutually ignoring left/right

Positive faith values,

EarthBalloon Economics

WinWin Balloon EcoPolitics
for growing community health,
said the EarthBalloon economist,
is most effectively improved
by focusing on the bottom
of Earth’s sacred communal balloon,
accepting shared responsibility
for those stuck in ground floor economies
of chronic survival issues,
perpetually repeating despairing depressed circles,

Rather than ignoring root communal problems
to focus on further elevating
the top tier of this our communal balloon,
with counter-historical faith
in trickle-down eco-power distribution theories
of Win or Lose evolution.

Imagine a balloon stuck to a revolutionary universal floor
with wild crazy glue,
prohibiting change in altitude
and positive evolving attitude.

As we pull from the top, hoping to increase freedom,
the bottom front-line becomes most immediately stressed
to survive this more acute chronic health threat
to the whole balloon system.

In between,
our communal balloon stretches out,
so our middling classes become thinner
and the distance between the top privileged one-percent tier,
within our opulent embrace,
and our stuck, comparatively neglected, bottom bitters
grows as we continue with Win/Lose business as usual
competition with invisible Winner Takes All glue,
holding on to dysfunctional threats
against our communal balloon’s healthy
holistically elastic
interdependently co-related
co-passioning systemic structure.

if we Win/Win absorb Win/Lose gaming glue
enough to loosen it’s autonomous defensive grip
we can lift our recovering chronically stressed bottom
of this healthier climate balloon.

As bottom outlyers of our communion life
increasingly harmonize voices,
we bring along all our EarthBalloon’s residents

Slowly growing resilient health outcomes
from the most stressed bottom
of our ecopolitical global communion
until more circular overall balance
between outside and inside climate pressures
optimize health buoyancy of our entire
now lifting,
more light-hearted,
balloon communion.

Systemic communal health care decreases
as we competitively continue to focus on narcissistic hopes
of our too wealth hoarding
too freely Win/Lose privileged elite.

elevating improvements change communal elastic health-wealth systems
filling out better balanced,
securely mature,
conserved by liberally lifting love intent
with those chronically struggling
for natural/spiritual climate survival
at the bottom of our ecopolitical
robustly elastic


Boundary Issues

Why do we call lack of boundary issues,
boundary issues?

Why do we call oppositionally engrained
and deep-rooted ego-supremacist instincts,
oppositional disorder?
rather than competitive-dominant WinLose order?

Why do we call lack of WinWin ecopolitical direction,
rather than equivalence?

Edgy margins of discovery
multiply bilaterally,
both economic and ecologic collateral
healthy investment and unhealthy divestment
searching Tipping Points
toward equi-lateral recovery
of peace with justice
WinWin global outcomes
for subclimates and landscapes
of atomic universal health
as wave-linear integrative wealth.

Are we made of atoms
or waves,
or somehow both,
and yin-wave-linear flow,
bilaterally Left with Right?

Are we living on the edge
of a primal great transition relationship
between two millennial systems?

Perhaps a universal ecosystem
primally both Yang-sunlight and Yin-EarthBound surfing water
as convex expanding regenerating Universe
and concave dipolar co-gravitating double-boundaried systems,
with ionic balancing functions
and bionic ergodic weave-linear thermodynamics
up and down
in and out
bilateral forms,
regenerative holonic fractal patterns
of bilateral yinyin-winwin wu-wei ambivalent relationships
without YangCentered equivalence of EgoLeft and EcoRight
within concav e atomic 4D-fractal biosystems.

Are we a universal atomic holon
of prime bilateral-dipolar relationship
or a spiral waving biosystem
weaving and reweaving double-edged relationships
of margins
through wu-wei 3D Space and 1-bilateral Time
of seasons evolving revolutions
of one atomic YangFormed-YinFunctioned life?

Creation Stories of weaving life
as love toward atomic decomposition
reweaving edgy polycultured
polyphonic marginalizing issues
between integrative waves of yin
and universal holonic strong particles of Yang’s dialectals
speaking LeftBrain dominant atomic centered,
Earth revolving,

What is a relationship
between Yang life and Yin death?
And what is a system
spiraling in fractal regenerative
producing Yang and consuming Yin waves
toward prime relational (0)-waste-margin
sums of healthy-wealth
for WinWin ecoLeft and politicalRight co-active hope?

Why do we call complex fractal-dialectal ecopolitical boundary issues
lack of zero-waste paradigmatic-systemic chaos?
Rather than Earth’s Divine YangThesis
as seen through waves of bicamerally humane Yin-Gaia HypoThesis,
together Light and Water’s
HypoStatic-SynErgodic EcoCation,
creolization of light with dualdark dipolar paradigms,
universal systems
with integrative polyculturing 0-wastestream
bicameral flow of deep rich enculturing boundaries.

What is a RightBrain holonic spiraling wavey boundary issue?
What is a LeftBrain EarthCentered EgoSystemic opportunity?


A New MultiCulturing Dawn

Theoretical abstractions,
reductive hard word choices,
to describe and prescribe spiritual experiences
are unsatisfactory for daily consumption and absorption
as they reify exceptions to your Business As Usual,
which is probably LeftBrain patriarchally dominant.

Exceptional Left-Right bicameral ego/eco-consciousness,
of natureLeft-spiritRight nondual co-arising experience,
erupts from the creolizing soil
of your diurnal polypathic
ergodically liturgical
energy is information
as fake nothing-new entropy is disinformation
as regenerativity is notnot degenerativity
hum-drum cooperatively polypathic days and nights.

This implies that regenerative ethology,
exploring your eisegetical experience of nature-spirit’s nondual purposes,
within as without,
is a Left-Right
co-empirical deductive/inductive
health science.

With polycultural and multicultural outcome intent,
we invite both Left-deductive empiricism
and Right-inductive Personal Knowledge,
a tacit, more than explicit, dimension
(see also M Polanyi and D Bohm and E De Bono and J Jaynes)
as comprehensively balancing co-arising knowledge
(see also B Fuller on distinctions of ecological cooperative bilateral comprehension
as therapeutically contrasted against
merely ego-anthro-centrically deductive word-choice competitions
of EitherOr oppositions,
where BothAnd appositions
serve more synergetically WinWin healthy-well).

If we believe,
perhaps with our Buddhist nondual co-arising friends,
that the ego mind can become an empty-blank slate,
this is merely the exceptional pause to remember
the interdependent polypathic construction
of all specific knowledge,
including foreknowledge,
content and contentment,
as opposed to more LeftBrain dominant
cognitive-affective clouding dissonance.
When Earth is EmptyLeft
the Universe appears Interdependent-Cooperative inductive Right.

Other EitherOr dichotomies
therapeutically best also comprehended
as BothAnd co-arising dipolar appositions:

Erotic-natural and Agapic regenerative ecopolitical nurturing
biosystemic sensory-neural rootedness,
of fractal/developmental/dialectical-DNA and RNA, for example.

Deductive LeftBrain languaged knowledge
seeking Inductive RightBrain revelations
of ecopolitically cooperative revolutions.

Theoretical deductive-reductive abstractions of rationalism
redrawn and remembered from experiential-affective ElderRight
ecological learning
distinctions between regenerative long-term
and degenerative short-term re-acclimations
of Bateson’s Sacred Ecology,
nightmare to daydream daily cooperative adaptations,
creolizing nutritional supersessions
from enslavement to LeftBrain dominance only
to full-free multiculturing liberty
to dance with Left-Right Bodhisattva Messianic PeaceMakers.

Nature’s LeftBrain Yang-strengths
optimizing while nurturing RightBrain’s Yin-flow.

Anthrocentric competitive Yang-LeftBrain paid-out-forward messianism
and WinWin pregnant co-arising
EarthMatriarchal YinSquared-Fractal c-squared, e-squared
MultiCultural CoEnlightenment
(see B Fuller on compare/contrast of spatiated c-squared
with temporal-bilateral linear Eulerian-squared
prime metaphysical relationship).

So nature and sexuality and ecotherapeutic messianism
do all fit together
to include our humane-divine full bilateral spectrum
of homo through hetero sexuality,
with bi and transexuality somewhere in-between,
Tipping Points
to help the rest of us
heal ourselves of unseemly Yang-dominant bias,
where homo means anti-hetero
and hetero devolves into anti-homo,
and white means anti-black
and black means anti-white,
and North means anti-South
and South means anti-North,
and Western Capitalism means anti Eastern Cooperativism
and Eastern Nondual Cooperativism (Taoism-Buddhism, etc.)
means possibly also Western Creolizing EcoCapitalistic InterRelationalism.

One is naturally a man
or woman
or someone multiculturally in-between,
reminding us
there are many healthier ways to become a bicameral polypathic man,
as accessible as a therapeutic daydream
comprehending this new diurnal dawn.


Strongly influenced by, informed by, energized by, pp. 53-55, “Biblical Truths: The Meaning of Scripture in the Twenty-First Century, Dale B Martin, 2017. Although, if I have distorted his clear-light Christian message and multicultural intent, these faults are my own.


Divine Doors Opening LeftFront and RightBack

From Pronia, by Rob Brezsny, p. 267

Neither God nor the gods are dead,
but they seem to be disappearing
because so few of us are capable of carrying on authentic relationships
[at least] with them anymore
[leaving us with just us idol
idealistic worshipers of some day our day will come].

The [reductive] materialist delusion rules:
Millions believe that nothing’s real
unless it can be perceived by the senses.
[Even so,
a rock is even more materially real
than a song written for ears to hear it.]

Churches and temples [and governing offices] are full of ethical people,
but many of them have no clue about how to know
or feel
or converse with the divine [liturgical nature-languaged] intelligences.

What can the deities do,
having been banished from our conscious knowing
[eisegetical discovery and exegetical recovery]?

Jung said they have no recourse but to worm their [our] way
into our lives as sickness and pathology.
they [we] come in the back [RightBrain] door.

Which of your maladies or pains might be gods
in [duressed] disguise?
How might you get them to take off their [our] masks
and begin knocking on the front [LeftBrain deductive-dipolar-co-arising-abstractive] door?
