Working Out Some Wrinkles

Kenneth Cloke
historically outlines the widening and deepening
and merging and submerging
of elite/non-elite
publicized/privatized ego/eco-politicians.

Earth’s perennial health/pathology contests
lie between LeftYang domination
over-powering RightYin suppression;

Slowly at matriarchal pre-historic first,
then, now, much more quickly
and Western invasively,

From slave-owner v slave,
to kleptocratic aristocracy v non-elite laborers,
serfs paying homage to autocratic male ownership,
autonomic
automated assaulting

To capital-infested corporations v grounds and building maintenance untouchable employees,
under-the-patriarchal-table sex-workers,
perpetual part-time apprentices,
ass-ociates,
alien terrorist competitors.

With McGilchrist,
inter-religious listeners and speakers and advocates
and international diplomats and facilitators and mentors
might well ask:

What could elite self and non-elite other
compassionate health interests
sound and smell,
taste and see,
think and feel like
when co-relationally resisting elite LeftBrain
monoculturing Western patriarchal domination?

How do the ecofeminist former serfs and slaves
cooperatively support healthy multiculturing public
and personal energy investing
in transubstantiating Left/Right healthy democracy?

How could WinWin wealth-spirited
and health-souled advocates
agree with McGilchrist hope
for a more wealthy democratic well-being?

Transculturally adapting LeftBrain bicameral Master Facilitators
Adopting her/his creolizing RightBrain bilateral-binomial
health/wealth Emissaries
facilitating non-violent Win/Win polypathic communication,
vocal vulcanizing
metamorphic trans-regenerative well-being,
sacred communion on secular EarthYin
under HeavenYang’s enumerated universal canopy.

Could religiously non-dualistic
non-sectarian
non-partisan
multiculturally cooperative health investments
result in deep learning Left/Right co-educational nation-state wealth-sufficiency
for bioregions,
extended families,
private ego-identities

Elite/NonElite exformation
eisegetically implicating
ego/eco-metaphoric co-relational Both/And
Win/Win languaged information,
exegetically resilient,
transcends Either/Or thinking,
to Win ego’s economic health
we must Lose eco-logical wealth,

Business As ShortTerm Capital
unusually infested.

Can we cooperatively re-visit ego/eco-therapeutic revolutions
of meta-paradigmatic ZeroZones?
Polypathic, polyphonic integrity
conjoining not-not polynomial EarthSoul
for unspoken diverse health-mindfulness,
full-hearted wonder
and ecstatic polyculturing awe

Reweaving multicultural history’s politics

UnSelfish Selfies

I think of my Ego
and therefore perceive my bright light space place,
like my self-identity,
growing optimally confluent health-power,
says Yang.

Yin co-responds,
We re-connect one EgoZone co-identifying place
within ZeroSoul Zone bilateral
one point of light
toward two-dimensional string of flowing-revolving time,
causally, almost casually, past through health-wealth
WinWin effective history,
fruitful future herstory

WinLose choices
mired in less nutritious suboptimization
of our Left with Right life-power,

And don’t even under-poweringly think,
reminds Yang,
about LoseLose
dual dark
chaotic dissonance
not/not eco/ego
outside/inside
matriarchal/patriarchal upside down reversed hierarchical
suppressed ecofeminist Gaia
flow-power speaks effluent YinTruth
to RightWing genocidal
anti-messianic
god made in Man’s fragmented reductive penal-envious image

WinLose
ZeroSum Yang dominant
eco-political
egocentric dead-end line
story-time.

Yang pleas for more WinLose forbearance.

Yin readily agrees,
but first requires WinEgo-Health explicating WinEco-Wealth
EarthJustice double-binding climate reparations.

Yang asks Yin if we should begin with replanting forests.
“Did you mean to ask for reparations,
ego-centric atonement,
Or health systemic restorations,”
Where ego- and eco-systemic climate futures
remain meta-consciously
bicamerally re-connected
for psychological LeftBrain egos
and ecological nurturing RightBrain memory echoes?

Yes,
Yin dual darkly
Both-not/And-not redundantly double-binary
Non-ZeroSum WinWin
EcoZone Tit for Tat
Restoring EarthJustice

Climates of Ecstasy

Any difference between feeling horrified, on one hand,
and disenchanted thoughts, on the other,
seem connected to punishing error and folly in others
unlike our self-righteous ego identities
trained to settle for a Win/Lose anti-communal
anti-trusting world.

Such disparities are even less wise when paranoid
and manic,
a difference in degree
between tragically toxic and merely Win/Lose business as usual,
between outside projection and inside rejection
on our shared global potential enchantment stage.

Then, too,
perhaps any disappointing difference between climatic ecstasy
and everyday enchantments,
in-between wu-wei,
still kindly love our best
and healthiest
and most beautiful,
sensual,
graceful local cooperative presence.

Each ecstatic day may bring some of both
cooperative enchantment
and Left v Right disenchanting competitions
to avoid horror and terror out there,
without doubt,
but also everyday disenchantments
of a complex, sometimes chaotic, domestic darkness.

Climates of Descent

Energy descent
need not predict financial descent
by inviting cooperative ownership and governance instead.

Just as democratizing love descent
need not predict hate and terror and paranoid acceleration
when love could invite more polypathic
and polyphonic
and polycultural outcomes,
creolizing multicultures of omnipotent abundance
instead.

Just as climates of ecopolitical pathology descent
need not predict 0-sum
Win To Lose Later
Industrial Capitalization Game-Over
when positive energy invites more diastatic flowing landscapes,
cultures of regenerative health
watering flowers
and not so much our weeds.

I Like Money

I like money.
But, I like it like soul food and jazz,
not like worshiping an omnipotent Patriarchal God.

I like money
because I like investing
in myself and others I trust
to return to Earth
nutritional investments of gratitude
for Her grace,
which is not the same thing as abundant capital
for playing WinLose Games
but might be the same as cooperative capital investments
in WinWin co-opportuning
ecological economic-political Gaming PersonShip,
returning grace from Goddess Gaia,
our shared Holonic BiLateral Spirit
of EarthJustice WuWei Revolutions
for climates and cultures of health.

I like cooperatively investing money
because that is one capitalistic way
to give back
and pay-value-forward,
trusting abundant nutrition will follow,
beans with cornbread
and Ella
and Billy
and even Stranger Fruit.

Capital Acclimations

Capital means head,
whether healthy or swollen.
That leading toward healthy wealth place
and pace.
Capital is where my head is at today.

Capitalism may be where my competing head has turned
while social and natural eco-capital
could become where our cooperative hearts evolve,
revolve,
resolve,
resound,
rebound,
refound.

Hearts, like minds,
are bicameral,
as embodied arms and legs,
eyes and ears,
and even nostrils,
are bilateral,
even syncretically stereophonic
stretching dance to rhythmic sound.

Capital grows where my EitherOr deductive head works out Win or Lose
and revolves more therapeutically
where my BothAnd inductive heart plays out
and in,
up and down,
diastatic through stasis,
regenerative through degenerate,
love through terror of ego-loss,
to re-ingenerate again.

We can throw our capitalistic arms against each other
yet we all breathe and beat
this same cooperative capital
wu wei,
MidWay
Yang with YinYin
WinWin.

National Public Radiators

All this long week
of early spring head colds
our National Public Radio informants
and performers,
speakers and listeners,
have been about the business of raising capital investments
preferably in their corporate direction,
to support further public broadcasting
for the benefit of our children
and their children,
and so on.

While this has often felt like a guilt-inducing headache,
I was drawn into a list of statistics about NPR listeners.
Contrasts between those who do listen
and those who do not,
or,
more likely,
those who send in cash,
and those who do not.

At first the list seemed random.
More likely to recycle,
to attend live theater,
go to the symphony,
grow gardens,
bake their own cookies,
read bedtime stories to their kids,
read anything at all.

And then I realized we are looking at social capital;
growing and re-investing in social capital.
What a permacultural designer would relabel
and spread across endangered soils and waters and souls
as eco-capital re-investment;
re-investment in ourselves
in each other’s talents and ideas and skills
in Earth’s re-creative abundance.

The economic thing sometimes not noticed
by ecopolitically cooperative re-investors:
high consumers tend to also be high producers.

So, while they didn’t say so,
I have heard it said elsewhere,
NPR listeners also list heavily toward higher education,
and rabid too-the-roots,
White Protestant Victory Or Die
Republicans know what that means.

Why isn’t eco-capital investment as robust
in traditional Republican neighborhoods,
as in more multicultural Democratic necks of woods
and urban forests?
Or is it?

While there may be as many answers
as there are people who do not invest cash in NPR,
I suspect those Republicans who prefer to NPR listen,
rather than RightWing AM Rant,
also find this soft correlation between deeper learning
and eco-capital active re-investment troubling
to their centrist nurturing instincts and orientations.

It seems difficult to listen to an International Public Cooperative Economy
while simultaneously expecting positive outcomes
from ecopolitically competitive egocentric and supremacist
nationalistic success is divinely inspired
by God’s Invisible Hand of Independent Might Makes Right EgoNomics.

While it seems harsh and judgmental
to speak cooperative prophecy to competitive strength,
we might do well to remember
with Paulo Freire
that teaching is best practiced as mentoring,
and mentoring is always ecopolitical cooperative,
more than competitive, relationship.

Political mentoring relationships that work,
whether you are part of an academic research community,
or part of an architectural design and implementation team,
or part of a cooperatively-owned and self-governing corporation,
require Yangstrength of balance to fall on the side of harmony,
resonance,
both-and nutritionally inclusive and diverse health,
rather than egocentric
eco-capital disinvestment through autonomous competitions,
in a monocultural assumption of EitherOr fundamentalism
where Earth’s historically regenerative evidence
more resonantly broadcasts BothAnd eco-capital re-investment.

If love powers define ecopolitical power of WinWin cooperativity,
so fear power refines mistrusted egopolitical WinLose competing disempowerments,
then we could not have healthy and reliable growth of empirically-supported and replicated information,
much less wealthy faith re-investment economies,
unless the power of positive eco-capital investment
overwhelms and absolves powers of negative ego-decapitation
capitalistic small-self-investment.

But then,
I am one of those International Public Broadcasters,
so sometimes my multicultural balance
can become merely eisegetically polypathic,
which is a multisyllabic way of saying
nuts
and empty zero-sum notnot double-bound.

It all started with the head cold
and overheated brain.
