Great Power Transition

We come,
at a trail’s trial turning,
to an impermeable ego-flaming wall.

All remaining between us
and history
since bilateral beginnings of our ZeroWalled Time
is this Yang barrier
double-binding before to after identity

Between humane solidarity
and Earth’s solid eco-habitat;
between us and living Earth joy,
swaying wildness,
sunlight on oceans,
early spring songs,
fogged-in mornings of gloom
doom
dark walled tomb…

Will we co-arise
Earth’s sacred ego-dominance together now
or unsolidly apart,
not long later?

Will we let yang with yin
left with right
dipolar consume
whatever resonant body identity
we have twisted
to transpire our seasonally climatic lives?

Sending us on and out each morning
through trembling memory of yang barriers,
a WiseElder power radiance,
a changed yang-purging yin-squared diamond
transubstantiating event
dialectically positronic
flickering interdependence
re-becoming EarthTribal breath re-inspired
expiring healthy atmosphere remediation,

Another moody not yet waiting
and not yet gone longing
ZeroWall,

Boson of Earth’s potential spacetime,
universal integrity,
holonically uniting spirit.

The Public Health-Wealth Dissertation

What lies closest to godliness for you?

Cleanliness/purity,

Integrity,

Compassion,

Resilient health,

Wise Win/Win wealth

Other

 

Why?

Does your answer change if the question turns to:

What lies closest to Gaian EarthGoddess for you?

If so, why?

If not, why not?

 

These questions came up as I was looking for a dissertation topic for Euclid University’s PhD in Inter-Religious Dialogue and International Diplomacy.

On Euclid’s website we read something about what this is all about:

“Interfaith diplomacy is an important and new emerging field of research, notably in view of ongoing inter-religious [Win/Lose] conflict, mass migrations [not unrelated to climate change, and trending in that further unfortunate pathological Lose/Lose direction], and grave issues related to radicalization [and concomitant economic and political concerns of growing belief and behavior and investment in apartheid, monoculturing silos, self-ghettoization, and viral tendencies toward Lose/Lose rabid climates of disintegrating terrorism, dualistic nature v spirit theologies, degeneratively entropic absence of robust cooperativity—lack of Win/Win systems thinking, integral multicultural dialogue and design—fading polycultures of democratically liberal love and economic/ecological health development through Win/Win creolization rather than more Business As Usual Western commodification of sacred, integral, holonic, nonsectarian, interdependent Earth].”

Then we can read something about why:

“Euclid’s specialized PhD degree focuses on interfaith practice and the actual application of interfaith skills in the [healthy] community [of non-sectarian, non-violent, non-partisan, non-nationalistic, non-sadistic, non-masochistic cooperative democratic discernment of Win/Win integral responses to outstanding issues seeking effluent equity and affluent interdependent systems, ecosystems, egosystems, governing systems, co-governing systems, eco-governing green systems,…], rather than the advancement of [merely] academic [left-brain dominant, commodified, Win/Lose default Either/Or competitive contradicting and dividing what God may have originally kept Both/And bilaterally bicamerally and binomially cause/effect, Alpha/Omega, Left/Right, Yang/Yin, patriarchal Either/Or and matriarchal Both/And perpetual-flowing matriarchally sacred nutritional integrity kept together for further healthy-wealth Win/Win discernment, discussion, dialogue, non-sectarian diplomacy] knowledge for it’s own sake.”

“Our program places a special [Win/Win] emphasis on contemporary Islam, Muslim-Christian [Abrahamic patriarchal cooperatively co-investing in fertile multicultural and ecologically healthy wealthy self/other-optimizing integrity, authority, responsibility, resilient Win/Win stewardship of power, light, life, economic Zero-interest smart green co-investment,…] dialogue, modern [liberally cooperative green-conservation of left/right, north/south, west/east co-dominant experiential] secularism, as well as de-radicalization [non-violent communication through compassionately resilient cooperative health-supporting words and trusted Golden Rule Win/Win deeds] and [ecologically ecclesiological knowledgeable and wise mutual-polyculturing] mediation.”

 

So, when I was invited to present a dissertation topic, I suggested:

The technology and philosophy of dialogue, diplomacy, conflict resolution, restorative justice, peace-making, non-violence, WinWin solutions, derive from philosophy, theology, natural and social sciences, and perhaps even abstract psychotherapeutic geometrics.  Rather than asking the more classical academic questions of how are these better and worse than each other, how do they differ, perhaps it is more fruitful to diversely and interdependently compare these health/pathology paradigms to search for their most resilient therapeutic WinWin communion and wealthy holonic promise?

Using a combination of Systems and Game Theory, I have a dissertation interest in looking more closely,

with a local interfaith community of ecological/theological dialogue, at any two or three of the following sources to see how their analogical mapping (Gregory Bateson, Ecology of Mind) might combine to inform a robust nonsectarian healing process for Earth’s wounded economic and political climates, natural and spiritual, secular and sacred, and how we might enter into a secular/sacred non-sectarian health-and-climate-care implementation cooperative mission for healing our local Earth, wounded plants, and EgoLeft/EcoRight

Robert Norton                       communications theory                   enthymematic reiteration

To my surprise, this Win/Win cooperatively facilitated research proposal was rejected as not germane to the purposes and implementation focus of the Win/Win Inter-Religious Integrity Dialogue and Public Resilient Health Diplomacy PhD program, with stipulated intent to remain responsive to a United Nations cooperative Win/Win Earth Health Service training project to derive the most resilient terms possible for global co-investment.

So, instead of facilitating a local inter-religious and international dialogue, which would be expensive, sacrifice some trees, burn some gas and oil, it occurred to me to invite you into an even larger community of dialogue about what are our highest public and private health priorities for multiculturally cooperative people who understand godliness and/or Gaian/Marian EarthGoddessness as at least sufficient power to intend enough cooperative integrity for generating light out of nondual darkness.

Which, on living Earth, has produced some astounding evolution of compassionate grace history, and some other, darker herstoric repressions.  Even so, we each seek to facilitate and mentor polycultural resilience, polyphonic resonance, polynomial Win/Win communication, polypathic ways, and ego/eco-centering means toward divinely-humane healthy truth of wealth-abundant beauty. Or so it seems to me, which is why my answer is:

To co-facilitate good faith integrity of Earth’s vast health/wealth potential.

Taking Healthy Opportunity-Risks

A liberal love-mind
sees Earth’s nurturing eco-nest origins
astoundingly opportune for producing healthy ego-nutritional eggs.

A more conservative eco-political risk taker,
faced with ego’s opportunity
to fly away from mortal risk
to autonomous ego’s long-term survival
or fight to WinEgo/LoseEcoNest pyric victory,
thereby sees ego’s Win/Win in-between opportunity
to produce future cooperative eco-eggs
of self-perpetuating identity,

A narrower, conserving, view
of Earth’s universal health opportunities
and a widening interdependent liberal love potential.

We might become both
ego and eco healthier,
more left non-insula nature embodied
and right amygdala co-passionate spirit soaring
to imagine
and support both physical/metaphysical views,
held most lovingly together
as WinWin eco/ego-centering integrity,
symbiotic nonfight/nonflight opportunity
for cooperatively mentored solidarity
in health/wealth mutual service

Failures of Integrity

I feel like a high school civics class dropout.

So much confuses me,
to this day,
about democratic constitutional law,
which feels like it should have WinWin original empowerment intent,
about public and private rights,
protected against others’ immoral and illegal, unhealthy wrongs of infringement,
and why we invest so much of our gross,
and I mean really Gross,
nationalistic produce
in what could not possibly be public health outcomes.

If governments are not for liberating and defending public health
then how could we realistically hope for those constitutionally promised deliverables:
well-being,
happiness,
prosperity?

Obviously I missed the day
when our high school civics and U.S. history teacher
explained the complex relationships
between public health
and growing democratic
interdependent
WinWin trust.

And truth,
and public service life,
and healthy-wealthy ways
of building a resilient
ecologically invested
economically smart
society.

For example,
how did the Supreme Court buy into the argument
that corporations have the right to buy and sell candidates for public office
because, if they didn’t,
then our legislative regulators
would thereby unconstitutionally restrict
their rights of free speech
as stipulated by our First Amendment?

I have the right to speak up for the public health benefits of marijuana
as compared to alcoholic beverages,
but do I have a first amendment right to purchase, carry, and consume marijuana?

In communications theory,
we differentiate between what is linguistic performance
and what is not speech
but non-verbal action,
investment,
divestment.
Why would that distinction not apply to the First Amendment
for white privileged patriarchal corporations
and yet does seem to apply for just regular persons
like you and me?

I have the right to speak out for white nationalism.
I could even argue that the abolition of slavery
was an unconstitutional taking of personal property,
but that would not give me the right to go out and buy a person,
not even a candidate for public cooperative WinWin wealth service.

It obviously was my misunderstanding
that the First Amendment protection of personal
(not incorporated) rights
is restricted to free speech and peaceful assembly.

Now I’m trying to wrap my Left and Right Brain around
First Amendment incorporated rights to buy and sell governing authority,
rights to buy and sell democratic trust commitments
to responsible
and accountable
and transparently free choice-speaking and democratic health investing,
rights to buy and divest of cooperative cultural integrity
to robustly serve in our public health sector
for equal and interdependently informed,
unformed,
exformed,
formed,
reformed,
preformed personal (not incorporated) voices
unwilling to buy and sell pro-organic healthy resilient lives.

I keep going back to historic constitution development notes
about this resonant rhetorical First Amendment,
trying to find a strict conservative defense of original intent
that might responsibly, and healthily, stretch enough
to include corporate freedom to peacefully purchase public assemblies
and rent free-market corporate spokespersons
for Win/Lose choices
supporting short-term capital returns
against ecological-organic long-term democratic healthy climate services
predicting nothing but further Lose/Lose patriarchal retributive injustice
as everyday capital-hoarding
democratically unusual
cynical and nihilistic privileged market freedom
for inordinate inhumane over-investment
in enslaving otherwise reasonably healthy minds
and public spirits
and trusting natures
for freely communicating democratically resilient health services.

Anyway,
when I was in graduate school,
studying political philosophy,
and integral multicultural wealth-of-health design,
we learned corporate investment in partisan political processes
as a private sector unhealthy opportunity
to grow white privileged economic buy and sell colonialism,
sponsored and supported by xenophobic unhealthy minds.

Which feels rather distant
from protecting our informed rights
to free and robust speech
and peaceful assembly
within and among this public service
promoting resiliently wealthy eco-logical,
unincorporated ego-therapeutic,
diversely nonsectarian,
interdependent integrity
of these healthy uniting WinWin States.

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

Win/Win languaged information,
exegetically resilient,
transcends Either/Or thinking,
to Win ego’s economic health
we must Lose eco-logical wealth,

Can we cooperatively re-visit ego/eco-therapeutic revolutions
of meta-paradigmatic ZeroZones?

full-hearted wonder
and ecstatic polyculturing awe

The Leadership Convention

When potable water nearly disappeared,
good faith communities
for healthy living
water,
Earth,
people,
plants,
soil,
air,

Fire-breathing resistance churches
and calmer rapture temples,
synagogues,
mosques,
green post-millennial sanctuaries,
Gaian ecofeminist fire-circles
gathered their members and neighboring allies,
republican nationalists,
green democrats,
ecosystemic libertarian zeroists,

To discuss and discern
which potential Presidential
and Vice-Presidential candidates to nominate
for next year’s Master Facilitator
and EcoFeminist WiseElder duo
for local through global eco-governing communications;
first listening
then summarizing co-passionate WinWin thoughts
with EarthSoul magnanimous feelings,

Each of these partisan constituencies, discerning together,
could synergetically support,
install in office,
invest our healthiest wealth in ongoing resilient empowerment
for Earth
and all EarthTribal living organic species,

As predicted by their nominees’ past words
actions
cooperative non-violent co-investments
in healthiest wealth
for cooperatively empowering outcomes,
for economically resilient long-term through short-term healthy wealth,
for WinWin wealthy health outcomes,
for universally democratic energy
within unitarian regenerative bilateral timeless boundaries
of ReCreation Time for healing
wounded living waters.

Up and down both sides of our River Jordan,
their Yangste River,
their Thames
their Nile
their Amazon
their Salmon Rivers,
sacred fire-circles burned
reflecting FullMoon promise,
as each party caucus
within each gospel health-seeking community
compiled wish lists
and bucket lists
for nominees who healthiest exemplify,
wealthiest speak up for,
and walk with LeftBrain knowledge
and RightBrain wisdom,

Holonic strength and holy flow powers,
building resilient health systems
and bilateral WinWin gaming experience,
Merging deductive memories with wealthy inductive images,
WinWin political thoughts
without WinLose ambiguously dissonant economic feelings,

High priority candidates
have love-marketing experience and healthy passion-speaking training.

We asked each other,
When did potential nominees experience global cooperative listening
before teaching and preaching WinWin ego/eco-solidarity facilitation

Explicitly knowing dipolar health
conjoining implicately-felt wealth,
Yang-visioned with Yin-listening
non-violent communicators

Healthy mentor ministering EarthSoul musings,
preferably Left and RightBrain amusing.

We searched names with cooperative green non-violent communication histories.
Voices flew back and forth,
on and off line,
up and down our dying river,
still trickling faithfully away
in Her mossy green bed,
not quite dead,
hoping for a consensual co-facilitator
for a democratically thirsty
and decreasingly healthy, Valley

Still supporting green gospel-communicating diversity
courageously and curiously
exploring leadership healthy-wealth
co-investing in WinWin multiculturing integrity.

HeartFelt–MindFull

I read Eisenstein’s sacred economics
a year or two ago,
and it is one of the few I still remember
and often think about
and long for.

This ecological
theological
economic read
was my ego’s cooperative investment
in TruthLeft with BeautyRight
Charles had paid-forward
in writing this cooperatively-invested exchange.

I love his WinWin ego/eco-system
not not ZeroSum
degenerative/regeneratively ambiguous imagination
listening to history’s healthy wealth and unwealthy pathology
for ego-patriarchal/eco-feminist
bilaterally creolizing health/wealth value purity
of innocent EarthTribal Beauty flow-power.

If such co-passioned love economy
makes me a crazy ambiguously trans-regenerative investor
in polypathic WinWin health and wealth of beauty
wizard/wild wikimess

With truly shape-shifting liberal love
of deeply conservational green eco-normic
metaphoric learning truly gorgeous value
from healthy non-violent eco-political communicating voices

Then,
so be my personal and political health investments.
I am
what we are LeftWin/RightWin becoming,
so let’s just move on
and fully occupy this trouble-shooting transubstantiating
trans-regenerative 4D
ZeroZone spacetime
EarthTribe Paradise potential
Truth/Beauty polynomial

Integrity of healthy cooperative Win/Win economics
with wealthy ecologics,
organically empowering systems
with bilateral Left/Right rhythms,
Yang/Yin
Universal/Unitarian,
Nature/Spirit promoting
dipolar co-lateral Zero InvestmentZone
of interdependent BeautifulDiversity

Guilty of re-syncing
as fully WinHealth/WinWealth
LeftEgo/RightEco-normatively charged,
and still changing,
and recharging
and prechanging
and uncharging
and not not polypathically changing
exchanging
Win/Lose competitive economic systems
for Win/Win ecopolitical
eco-logical webs
of heart-felt, fully-infested muses
for beautiful Myth,
co-operating nutritional organic exchanges
of healthy/pathological interdependent information.
