Abstract: Imagine, for a moment, that the information coding of every psychological system is:
LEFT Hemisphere: (+)1.00% Whole-Qbit/(-)0.00% Null-Qbit
RIGHT hemisphere: Yang/Yin Prime Relationship: (+)Self/Not(-)Other
currently struggling for eco-equity as +1/-0 = +Yang/-Yin binary-dynamic balance.
Perhaps it is easier to step into this bionic way of comprehending Spaceship Earth, and Her bicameral research species, for any child overwhelmed by the Received-View message that what s/he feels to be Positively Deviant is, in fact, really and truly, according to all cultures in all times, Negatively Deviant. “Your white has been proven beyond doubt to be black.” If we are fundamentally “wrong,” we suffer from an autistically struggling self-identification wound. To grow up “queer,” “defective,” “dysfunctional,” “perpetual underachiever,” “disabled,” “insane,” “bipolar,” “oppositional” is to develop a core-identity protective layer of cynicism about orthodox values, and the exegetical role of culture itself. The alternative, often simultaneously held, is concern that deviance is not fully, or correctly, human in some way.
Bipolar deviance erupts into cognitive dissonance about what is positively deviant, rather than negatively deviant from our Business-As-Usual psychology, what is teleologically helpful or harmful for “Self” preservation. Stigmatization of bi-polarity, from shaman to Transgender, is itself a primal sociopathology emerging with Left-brained cultural dominance. The evolutionary trend toward Left hemispheric dominance has over-valued deductive-only information since the alphabetization of symbolic icons, glyphs, and nature-based audiovisual information. Back in the dim memories of proto-history, what was natural system information was psychologically centric, and normative (Abram, 1996). The Great Transition toward a Gaian Paradigm is a re-volutionary call to return to natural system-based values, with sustainable Positive Deviant trends.
We are in for the greatest revolution in history. If it’s to pull the top down and it’s bloody, all lose. If it is a design-science revolution to elevate the bottom and all others as well to unprecedented new heights, all will live to dare spontaneously to speak and live and love the truth, strange though it often may seem. (Buckminster Fuller, 1965, p. 160)
Buckminster Fuller predicted a millennial transition crisis of opportunity for Spaceship Earth. Since his death in 1983 many voices have joined Fuller’s Unitarian refrain that the “Universe is eternally regenerative.” (p. 157) When we compile Fuller’s metaphysics with more recent work in Group Theory, including that of William Thurston and Gregori Perelman, the
“soul” of Universal Intelligence synaptically appears when the mutually-appreciative assumption of both Sine (PreGenitor) and CoSine (CoCreator) is “Win-Win,” rather than “Win-Lose,” or “Lose-Win,” or “Lose-Lose.”
Since the post-millennial geometrization (and rationalizing) of Group Theory, Ross Jackson outlined a “Gaian Paradigm,” predicting a “breakaway strategy,” the leading edge of a rapidly accelerating grassroots revolution toward a truly sustainable, equitable, holistic global polyculture (2012, p. 34). He adds that “A very visionary and charismatic leader of high integrity could make all the difference.” Fuller believed this and describes his own intention toward active Positive Deviance with similar words. He thought it of profound importance that we all join him in his regenerative discovery that we are the visionary, charismatic leader-species of universally mindful integrity—as soon as we nail down the “Win-Win” cooperative ecological balance issue. This positive self view, emerging as a dominant global polyculture, will open our sensory receivers to the discovery that we are already, and have always been, engaged in the greatest cooperative revolution in history. In fact, cooperative and inclusive regenerativity is the teleological message-to-ourselves emanating from our ancestors, to the present moment.
Within this awareness of global climatic impact lurks our growing recognition of systemic dissonance. Elisabet Sahtouris gathers the refrain of three major system crises—energy, economy, and climate—fusing into the Perfect Storm. “This situation…actually makes this an amazing time of opportunity to create the world we all deeply want!” (2012, p. 18). Rather than continuing the messianic hope for an individual prophet of inclusive cooperative integrity, Sahtouris observes that, “The Internet is the largest self-organizing living system created by humanity and is changing everything.” (p. 23). Perhaps Buckminster Fuller reincarnates John the Baptist on our way toward a “We”Messiah comprehensive analysis of Bosons and Information bit-strings, crowding and clouding the eternal World Wide Web.
A bionic agent for global regeneration into a permacultured Gaian Paradigm strangely circles us back to Fuller’s prediction for a post-millennial cultural metanoia.
Electronic means will have been highly developed for continually inventorying all of humanity’s thoughts, volitions, and dispositions regarding all currently evolving problems. Humanity will know at all times what the unique majority volitions may be regarding each and every currently recognized and considered problem. (1965, p. 159)
Here Fuller anticipates an electronically-fueled information system of holistically integrated mindfulness, inclusively accessible for positive, and regenerative, intent.
The post-millennial Editors of Evolutionary Psychology remind us that the evolution of our collective awareness is so accelerated that we are producing unprecedented quantities of information being read word-by-word, sentence-by-sentence, by fewer people. Increasingly we are looking for large data trends, and clouds, and crowds, to notice and predict systemic eruptions, climatic tsunamis, and the bicameral Species’ evolution toward a positive-teleological, economic, educational, cultural, ecological, and nutritional embrace of Jackson’s “Gaian Paradigm.” This Paradigm predicts a holistic teleo-psychology of global regenesis, combining the natural system principles of Permaculture Design with the health and well-being principles of Positive Psychology. This synergetic view of natural and psychological evolution romps through the theory, therapeutic practice, intent, principles, and outcomes of the Positive Deviance Institute (www.positivedeviance.org).
We have a large data cultural trend toward a more cooperative and holistically balanced Positive Psychology. We show ourselves this trend through noting on-line Positive Deviance trajectories for Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI), while we continue exploring a rational basis for equating psychological CQI with the CQI of polynomial trend articulation. The Tellus Institute (www.tellus.org), for example, studying long-term economic, political, and ecological performance trends, has labeled as “The Great Transition” their most positively deviant trajectory, in comparison to lose-lose economic/ecological norms.
Tellus Institute brings together respected scientists who have been developing algorithms for large trend information data analysis since the mid-1970s. The emergence of their Great Transition trend continues to identify the positively deviant trends within the underlying metric assumption of Information Systems Theory: that “positive” is the binary reverse of “not-positive” in a thermodynamically balanced universe.
As a bicameral Species, we prefer “positive” over “negative” outcome projections because we choose as positive those trends that meet CQI global well-being predictions. The Great Transition trend analysis is positively deviant from a core (0) binary axis. An increase in cooperative global system development, practice, and intent has had the greatest effect with least effort for the survival of bicameral (“bi-polar”) balance, confluence, harmony since the beginning of time.
When good things happen to us as a species, they tend to last, to be remembered, and coded into our DNA. We tend to survive longer, individually and collectively and inclusively. When bad things happen, we note the negative side of our binary information field with “0”s, “noise,” dismay, desolation, demons, irrationality, darkness, and cognitive dissonance. Perhaps this negative polarity is what David Bohm understood as “the implicate order” and what the Dalai Lama might think of as a purgative mindfulness of suffering, within and without. Our implied “antimatter” is ex-formed awareness of what matters only when its absence harms us, is socioculturally, and historically, pathological to our RNA. Neither individuation nor individuals can survive in the absence of formation, the absence of any form of relationship, or difference, or “self” and otherness.
Does Positive Psychology become germane to Evolutionary Psychology because our post-millennial World Wide Web organizes positive and negative polynomials using the same systemic design, a (0) Core Prime Relationship Principle, as does ribonucleic acid’s information string system? Is uracil, then cytosine, then adenine, then guanine a fused self-regenerative informing string with morphological mimicry as (0)-soul (Perelman, 1994) leads to +.50%, leads to -.50%, leads to 1.00% QBit? This primal 4-fold Group Theory also seems familiar in trigonometric functional sequence as:
(0) Core Vector YIELDS sine/x-axis, YIELDS cosine/y-axis, YIELDS tangent.
The sine definition determines the cosine definition, and vice versa, like Yang and Yin. The tangent, or tension between appositional trajectories, is the greatest effective positive/negative linear trend, with least effort, greatest simplicity, least dissonance and anomaly, between the opposite extremes of the two polarities.
Prophets, psychics, and polymath advocates, organizers, organic farmers, creative-formational educators and designers, deep learning ecologists and economists seem to share a positive teleological psychology. Julian Jaynes, in his evolutionary theory of human psychological development, suggests that our bicameral speciation event was the progenitor of left-hemispheric dominance, right hand functional dominance, the emergence of language, and cognitive application of metrics to symbology. The fractal-axial right-hemisphere uses proportion, balance, power, and 8-bit octave-frequency audio-visual codex for storing potentially recombinant information. These memory strings of Jacobian-matrixed confluent and dissonant events extend back through our proto-historical Eastern horizon (see Abram, 1996) to arrive again, regeneratively, at our Original Prime Relationship. Perhaps the regenerative unfolding of RNA structure is itself a cultural-historical proof of the Jacobian conjecture, and the creative fractal potential of 4-based Group Development Theory.
The positive teleology of Buckminster Fuller, Jackson, Sahtouris, the Tellus Institute, and the younger leadership voices of the Great Transition Generation, is concerned with why what happens really happens. What are our positive syntropic information strings leading toward therapeutic outcomes? However, the urgency for natural and psychological systems change is driven by the reverse, negative, polarity; why what does not happen does not happen—why sociopathology exists. A positive teleological response within nature might sound like “Because nature abhors a vacuum, and weeds, and prefers to follow the path of greatest nutritional effect by watering just the blossoming plants.” Evil is just the absence of good. While this does indeed seem to be true to my positive experience, I am also aware of a considerable precipitation that has fallen on my days with negative delivery and outcome frequencies. Why do bad things happen to positive people? Why does nature sometimes rain negatively on our positively parading paradigms?
Positive and Negative Psychology might recognize that our natural system has its own teleo-psychologic. Rain is a valuable functional resource within this natural ecology. What determines whether this rain on this day is a positive function or a negative function in relationship to me depends on how I individuate my Self. How do we choose to identify ourselves as a Species within nature? Are we part of this recycling in-forming and ex-forming regenerative rhythm? If so, then rain is always a gift, an act of grace, and the Positive Deviant response is gratitude.
The positive evolutionary strings of human memory, of speciated memory, are axially prime rooted, with “positive” geometrically conceived as “up,” while the negative evolutionary strings of bad memory are reverse-axially prime rooted—subconsciously buried in negative polarity dissonance, chaos, irrationality, the unknown and unknowable; and downright disagreeable.
Psychological in-formation and ex-formative liminal (implied) Boundary Memory Codex, in a somewhat balanced bicameral mind, speak to each other with gratitude and hope for confluence. At the same time, somewhere in our Right hemispheric function, we are intuitively mindful of purgative aptic non-responsiveness to an environmental absence of relationship and significant information; trending toward a “Self” individuation threat to sanity. Sustained lack of permacultural confluence may lead to chronic lack of sleep, may lead to post-traumatic stress disorder, may lead to autistic double-bind, internal inter-hemispheric, struggles at younger and younger ages.
Negative teleological strings are memories of our sociopathology just as positive teleological memory strings are memories of our fractally developed, synergetically-intuitive, sociotherapy. Positive therapy predicts the greatest regeneration with the least effort within a thermodynamically balanced positive/negative psychic system. Some of us call this optimizing regeneration Permaculture Design; others call it Appreciative Inquiry (www.centerforappreciativeinquiry.net), or Dynamic Facilitation (www.wisedemocracy.org), or the TrimTab Principle (Fuller). As a Taoist, as well as a bicameral information processor, I call it the Tao of (0)-soul Yang/Yin Prime Root Relationship. As a communicator, I recognize Positive Deviance as a sustainably and inclusively regenerative “Win-Win” Information String.
The creative act within cognitive, and mechanical, system design follows an aesthetic preference for inclusively positive-trending regeneration, where dissonance is absorbed as further evidence of the potential for positive confluence. This may be why, when I surf my World Without Walls, I am watching Wikipedia fill in, while less cooperative sites for developing holistic information suffer neglect, why there appears to be more dancing in feminist circles and less marching in macho-squares.
That we live and think within a bicameral information system may also explain why positively-cognized space and time (P) is reversely equal, and analogous, to not-polynomial space/time (NP—implicately ex-formed “antimatter” is “antirelationship”).
Fuller’s greatest effect (+1.00%) with least effort (-0.00%) toward a CQI sociotherapeutic psychology is Tellus Institute predicted to produce globally inclusive and sustainably regenerative Great Transition outcomes. These outcomes may, in turn, be summarized as optimal well-being and eco-equity pervading all species, paradigms, energy fields, natural, spiritual, quanta, and in-formation systems. Optimizing the evolution of our psychology is liminally defined as positive polarity, which is linear-trend appositional to the dissonant extremes of sociopathology. The Great Transition regenerates the Golden Rule; adding more universal integrity to that Rule. We now move toward applying Appreciative Inquiry within our own inter-hemispheric dialogue. Left and Right hemispheric balance teleologically, even messianically, emerges as the last dying-wish gasp of insight at the conclusion of our left-hemisphere, deductively dominant era. A brief flash of synergy as Earth absorbs the Sun once more; a positively deviant omen for a more confluent day emerging.
If evolution is survival of the fittest within a species, revolution is the sustained survival of the greatest, most inclusive, difference between species and paradigms and nutrient/regenerative strings with least dissonance within a polyculture, or environment, or planet, or universe of ideas. Revolutionary evolution of a new paradigm or species is completed through the mutually affinitive synchronization of cultural change within each individual in a species. The Positive Deviance trend of Information decreases by reducing the appositionally correlated Negative Deviance from (0) Axial Prime Relationship Balance. What was positively deviant, becomes the newly recalibrated Business As Usual, with more sustainable outcomes over longer periods of time, for more species and psyches.
ReGenesis is post-millennial global comprehension of revolutionary evolution as sociohistorical therapy. Positive Evolutionary Psychology is mutually cooperative, self-perpetuating form and self-defining functional balance of Yin-Yang interdynamics. Tao psychometrics articulate mindful intentionality and a
bicamerally (bi-dimensionally) comprehensive,
There is an evolutionary strain among geneticists and historians that the precursor to the regeneration of a species (or paradigm), that our DNA Codex actually loosens up on instinctive or dominant hardwire. This internal reverse regeneration may be the Stage 1 of what potentially becomes a speciation event. This is the sense of urgency. The Code changes from positive or negative to (0). What was exegetical, orthodox, reality becomes, for a transitional generation, eisegetical; maybe true, maybe not.
During Stage 2, after the information/eformation exchange ratios even out, natural systems produce more positive and negative anomalies from what had been the Received Cultural View (and, possibly, the culture of DNA plasma).
During Stage 3, bicameral minds inductively notice which deviations are positive and which are negative, based on which have the greatest balancing dynamic effect that is most sustainable for our long pilgrimage together. Examples coming up for me are bisexuality and androgyny, in the face of prolific human overpopulation of the planet; but that might just be a faulty intuitive string.
During Stage 4, the “Greatest Effect with Least Effort” teleological principle unfolds as no adjustment of the Codex values-culture. Instead PermaCultured Codex is reinforced by the emerging early Positive Deviants. They slowly, then more quickly, become recognized as predictors of a new speciation opportunity.
During Stage 5, the strengths of +.50% Yang-Information are found to be the therapy needed to respond effectively to the -.50% Yang-dissonant reverse trending Exformation.
During Stage 6, PermaCulturally trained bicameral minds diastatically notice that Yang-NegativeInformation equals Yin-PositiveExformation, which functions within any in/ex-formally balanced psychology as Yang = +1e-Bit Polynomial (P) OVER
-(0)e-Bit 4-Based Prime Relationship.
During the comparatively brief pre-synaptic Stage 7, right about now, (0) soul QBit-implicated Bosonic Vortex becomes psychometrically re-cognized as:
ProGenitor Yang+0.50% YIELDS
(-)0.50% Reverse Temporal-Linear Yin TransitionalCOSINE YIELDS
“+” is a Jacobean Matrix, +=1P and (-)=0NP Teleology String (TANGENT) Theory.
So, the metrics of logic and analogy, unfold as a 4-Staged teleologically developing information string, when the SINE and COSINE are dynamically balanced.
During the climatic Stage 8, Evolutionary Psychology becomes aligned with Positive Psychology and Compassionate Socioeconomic Therapy because psychologists, even without mindfulness training, realize that the reason one positive thing seems to associate with another positive thing is because everything is both caused and effected by everything trying to achieve thermodynamic balance, and reverse-caused (predicative/implicated function only) or exformed in this Eternal Moment.
Yang’s Negatively Deviant polynomials are dissonant exformative polynomials (NP). Our socioeconomic pathology teaches us our most sustainable therapy. Yin is NP, which is not polynomial information, but is reverse-Polynomial exformation. Yin is the reverse-temporal COSINE toward antirelationship in a univariate-binomial unformed (-e) Universe, decomposing into implicated Bosons of potential future moments. The permacultured seeds of futures past, awaiting their time of ReGenesis.

 Thomas Kuhn asks a similar question in the context of scientific learning and research. He called this the “Problem of Incommensurability.” There are similarities to the problem of why we can only label evolution as a true speciating event after the fact, and why even established species sometimes become extinct (physical) or eisegetical (metaphysical/psychological).
 Aptic, as coined by Julian Jaynes, is a precameral state of non-awareness of self or other. It is the reverse polarity of “synaptic,” an event, or difference, from self-awareness, that evolved into Other-awareness.
 This questions appears to be of interest to mathematicians and Group Systems theorists, working through the implications of a now logically proven (0)-soul theorem, as it might apply the temporal development of Information Systems (for example, the inverse function theorem), within an In/Ex-Formational Universe.
