Difficult Discernment

We were discussing a line
between reasonable compromise
and unconscionable denial
in this time of rapidly escalating fragmentation

When I thought I heard a raw spot
deepened and widened by dissonant history
of disagreement,
antagonistic feelings about noetic consciousness
of past pathological
bad climate events.

when I ask how you feel
about how we are responding to your position,
entrenched in anxious missed communication opportunities
to share your own excitement,
You respond by blaming yourself
for not making your experience clear
quickly enough
given our limited time for co-invested commitment.

Is that your raw spot?
Our limited consciousness
about raw and bleeding climates of mortal turmoil
metaphysically remembered
through past regenerations/degenerations of limited time,
inevitable demise of relationship
currently valued by investment felt
in a more win/win
than win/lose history of personal communication,
mutually compassionate understanding
feelings of safe yet free dialogue
between appreciative teachers
who are first curious and compassionate listeners,

Listeners to now,
co-presence of ancient raw and therapeutic places
for terror and nurture,
for replanting and reharvesting,
for teaching and listening,
for articulating painful memory
and reflecting on therapeutic future response,
for win/lose plots within win/win commitment spots,
for curious thoughts
and feelings of emergent integrity,
experiential and yet re-membering
co-presently teaching here with active listening now
for past and future emotional voices,
some with, and many without, full consciousness
of responsive choices

For discussing discernment
between reasonable win/lose climates of compromise
and unconscionable denial
of life impeaching raw spots
in this time of rapidly escalating fragmentation,
where inclusive vulnerability
would better seek and find integrity.


Managing HealthCare DisInvestments

What did you talk about
in your Anger Management Class today,
dear Yang?

Crisis survival skills.

As opposed to opportunity optimization skills,
I would guess?

I suppose so.
Like when someone is screaming and threatening to remove your health insured head
it might be a good idea to just take off your clothes
and walk away.
Or, the next time my elected government officials
get togethr to debate
how quickly we can further dismantle my health care
as a right of humane residency on planet Earth,
I might distract myself
by banging my head against the nearest wall
or table top.

Oh, that sounds not at all like our discussion today
in my Conflict Resolution Class.

Well, dearest Yin,
that’s probably because conflict resolution
is about opportunities for health-thrival skills;
not pathological crisis survival.
We operate on more of a two to six year
short-term re-election for more bicameral head-banging
So, what’s your big take-away
from your world of conflict resolution
and healthy diplomacy today?

We’re working on mindful listening skills
right now.

Such as…?

Like when someone is screaming at you
about how we can’t afford to provide care for people like you
who have the nerve to choose to be poor,
and sick,
and reside in the United States,
all at the same really inconvenient
pre-existing conditions time,
then we should listen for what we can agree with,
or at least might agree with for now,
and set aside the head banger statements
that drive us insane
for their lack of Earth-centric mindfulness.

You mean selfishness.

We could go with that word
if you prefer, dear Yang,
at least for now.

so I need not bang my head
about your codependent nurturing ways,
nor just walk away in naked disgust?

No, baby,
if you need to take off your clothes
I could do the same
and then we could show and tell our way
through more advanced mutual care-giving skills
and healthier, more regenerative,

Why does your seductive version of conflict resolution
always end with getting naked together?

unlike your anger management skills,
it’s not the way I would choose to start
in response to all that screaming
and fist shaking
about being both nakedly poor
and vulnerably sick
during the Republican AntiPoverty Nationalist Reform Movement.

By Reform
you mean Decapitation, right?

If you prefer that word,
I could not live without it right now,
dear Yang.

Answers Without Questions

Why do answers end with answers
while questions seem to begin with yet more questions?

As a case in point…

How are the Case Studies of economic and political history
different than Einstein’s Thought Experiments?

Wait a minute…

Yes, well that’s not really a difference, I think.
Thought Experiments and Case Study expositions
both begin with waiting a minute to notice cause-effect narrative,
to decompose relationships between systemically dynamic parts.
Imagining in reverse time,
from now as cause
back toward effects
leading up to this current cause,
this current noticing,
this sometimes chaotic and unsettling waiting a minute
to notice what I am struggling with.

Why does this Case of dynamic thought exposition
feel like my important,
yet complex,
systemically dense and intricate,
hopefully even richly resonant,
question to ask,
within all the vast universe of questions
I could be investing in right now with you,

That’s more or less, probably more,
what I was trying to point out
before you interrupted me.
Isn’t our dialogical rule
also our Golden Rule?
We see richer, more fertile and optimal, outcomes,
responses to our internal Thought Experiment questions,
including our familial Dysfunctional Case Studies,
and our ecopolitical Conserve v Progress Democratic Health and Safety Case Studies,
when we begin by asking how our appositionals are somehow the same.

OK, fine.
And sorry for cutting in
when I meant to be cutting with.

Sometimes you are so fundamentalist,
so Either the Same Or Different.
By now, dearest ConservativeRight,
I would have more patiently hoped
When I ask how things are different
I really both mean to look at how they are the same and different.
So, how are Healthy Thought Experiments and Fertile Case Studies
the same?

I think we just agreed they both begin with noticing nutritional elements
and decomposing reverse effect back through potentially complex causal networks
of cooperative opportunity.

Yes, but Einstein’s Thought Experiments were metaphysical,
mathematics and unnatural science,
while Case Studies are more like watching Physical SpaceTime Reality Shows,
and Economic and Political Disaster LoseLose Devolutionary Games.

How did I know that you would respond to your own question,
about how ecological thought systems are the same,
with how they are different?

Sorry, honey,
seems to be an inductive RightBrain neglect of mine.
But, do you agree or disagree,
or both, somehow,
that Einstein’s Experiments were about metaphysical spacetime operations
while Historical Case Study Operas
are about saying and singing and dancing
actual physical and natural,
maybe even spiritual..
Wait, no, that would be over in the Metaphysics Department.

Yeah, probably better to stick to the natural realities of Earth
spawning ecological systems and cooperative thought networks.

Another difference
Einstein hoped his Thought Experiments would lead to True,
and therefore not also False,
Either/Or mathematical statements about time and energy
and the speed of light’s travel
across and through evolving and revolving appositional space.

But, when you write your Dysfunctional Extended Family Case Studies,
you couldn’t realistically hope your appositional Elite/NonElite narrative
would lead to regeneratively True,
and therefore not degeneratively False,
ecological systemic statements
about LeftEgo’s Dominating sense of time
as both positive and unfortunately too often negative-degenerating energy
and (0)-sum speed of BiLateral EnLightenment travel
across and through evolving
and revolving
regenerative health and safety space stories.

Really! Whyever not?

Because that would be confusing a LeftBrain Either-Or metaphysical thought experiment
with its appositional
NotThisEgoForm-NotThatEcoSystemic temporal-neural cooperative-nurturingflow function,
Both/And RightBrain (0)-Source
Integral-ReGenerativity Embryonic DNA/RNA-Hypothesis.

If you say so,
but it all sounds LeftElite complex
and merely RightNonElite chaotic,
(0)-sum equivalent pay,
but still Business As CaseStudy DysFunctional WinLose,
to me.

Sorry love.
Don’t shut me down.
Just doing my LeftBrain Either/Or job.
Either Win deductive truth
Or Lose inductive notnot appositional-integrity flow.

Why is it that your EgoWin perspective
always gets the shorter definition,
while you stumble all over my WinWin NotNot way
to come up with some longer way of noticing
my nutritionally elegant nurturing Elder-ecological
health and safety lovely bilateral ways?

It’s the convex spatial Yang in EgoMe.
But, you know how I’m only at my EgoRegenerative best
when totally immersed in your BothAnd WinWin
bilaterally concave
YinYin lovely Feeling Experience
acting out ecosystemic TruthFunctional Case Studies
for BiCameral PolyPathic Love Stories.

Well, when you put it that way
you come across as less of a WinLose dominating ass,
degenerative hack writer of LeftBrain survival of the fittest;
more regenerative BothAnd RightBrain balancing thrival
of our +100%Space = (-,-) Empty-Zero fit-in-ingest integrity.

Maybe Einstein’s LeftBrain dominant
EitherSpace or Time Experiments
are metaphysically different
yet RightBrain ecologically WinWin ReGenerative/DeGenerative (0)-Soul

You’re doing it again.
That thing where you are LeftBrain explicating
while I remain RightBrain bilaterally inductive feeling-integral implicated
to somehow not really quite deductively exist
outside of timeless now.

Well, you just did the same thing.

That’s only because you have a monopoly on reductive temporal language development.

Sorry, babe,
but what else can I bicamerally do?
You smell and taste and feel just as nutritious and nurturing.

And sometimes pathological and toxic
thanks to your LeftBrain domination of ecopolitical history,
your infrequen health-nurturing matriarchal cooperative creation stories
are too often drowned out by your distorted YangEgo Space struggles against,
rather than with,
my YinYin WinWin sense of ecosystemic well-being timed Feeling Experience.

Are you feeling nutritional integrity progressive-suppressed again?

I am prevolutionarily near-diastatic,
just as you ConservativeElitist hope not.

How about if I deductively meet you half way?
Both oppositionally different
and appositionally evolving toward integrative
co-relational confluence narratives?

Now that could produce some Tipping point
conserveRight-progressLeft climate ecstatic fireworks!

You’re just teasing me, aren’t you?
This has all just been foreplay for inductive you,
to get me all WinWin bicamerally polypathic hot.
I feel so used.

Don’t pretend your co-investment in our regenerative health
and progressing future through EarthTribe babies
doesn’t like it.

Could you talk a little dirtier,
and leave out the kids part?

You mean Earthier,
deductive-inductive nurturing co-relational climaxes of nutrition,
followed not by post-revolutionary Elite/NonElite bickering,
but thriving future regenerations of optimally fertile healthywealth.

Is this a bicameral Thought Experiment we’re having
or a bilateral Case Study about regenerative appositionals
of convex EgoSpace
with concave bilateral EarthTime dialogical syntax?

Yes, baby,
bilaterally different later
if noticing our WinWin bicameral possibilities now.

That sounds like you’re ready
to stop noticing
and start our healthy orthopraxis?

Baby, you’re the Thought Experiment writer;
I’ve always been your LoveCase Study
of and for and through and by
SpaceTime’s co-arising nonduality.


Health Questions for Leading Candidates

by DipolarTaoist G. O. Dillenbeck

These invite your most integral multiple choice responses.

Please choose your one best answer,
recognizing you may often find more than one choice
resonant with your own experiences,
and/or interior and exterior climatic feelings
of belonging/not-belonging.
Would you rather garden,
take care of your own yard
and home,
your landscapes,
or any other form of skilled work
with your hands
and body
as co-arising ego-mind:

A. By yourself,

if and when your family and/or vocational colleagues
are not equally co-invested in your future projected healthy outcomes.

B. With others,

especially if they are family and/or vocational colleagues,
capable of co-arising cooperative co-investment,
as you are,
and express this intent
in ways you also care for your internal and external skill-sets,
emerging gestalt balance,
Yang/Yin harmonics,
deductive LeftBrain with inductively bicameral Elder RightBrain,
autonomic bicameral resonance,
ecological-dialectical regenerative orthopraxis,
your way of poetically metamorphing, polypathing,
passionate co-investment within
shared RealTime internal/external deep-rich reiterating-resonant experience.

C. As Plan A above, because of Plan B above;
and as a holonic regenerator within Plan B above, because of too much Plan A self-hypnotic experience above,
for Cooperative Self/Other CQI Optimizing Health Outcomes.
Would you rather communicate effectively and efficiently and therapeutically,
most certainly non-violently,
as managed by your active love and peaceful campaign contentment?
[Hint: Rather than more competitive and negative counterparts,
your anti-social enculturation history,
your anger and fear management exegesis
and co-arising negative-emergent issue orientation,
dissonantly and persistently eisegetical dissonant noisy
economic and political as dis-ecological imbalance issues
of chronic-hypnotic-aptic pathology,
anti-climatic stress, discomfort, discontent,
bicameral Yang/Yin ongoing contentiousness.]

A. Just within yourself,

in a more introverted-yin
and sometimes depressing
and self-repressive
“we all have to ego-die sometime”
sort of unkind nature-way,
at least disruptive to our dreams of endless gorgeous-growth, lush-rich incorporated
EgoEmpire building.

Yang hypnotically LoseLose dominating,
rather than equivalently loving,
Yin as AlienEarthOther CoArising Presence.

B. With others,

especially if they have 7-Generation therapeutic cooperative community planning,
maybe even correlated budgeting and co-investment support experience,
economically permacultural ego-health co-development strategic planning maturity,
preferably both personal as well as political,
co-investment through communication campaign design,
eco-networking dialectical capacity,
demonstrating WinWin PoliEconomic PolyCulturally Positive Health Outcomes
at individual Ego,
and other EcoSystemic levels
currently merging Ego/Eco optimizing slow-growth
healthy political-cooperative economies
tipping toward EcoLogical interior/exterior climatic Balance.

C. EquiValent Plan A-Ego and Plan B-Eco Balance,

as co-arising dipolar Yang/Yin prime co-relational,
appositionally bilateral as bicameral,
notnot cognitive dissonance equivalency with something like
ecoconscious operatic bodhisattva as bilateral-messianic vocation, purpose, original intent,
exegetical historic RNA/DNA fractal-fold-functional temporal resonance.
Would you rather live and breathe,
sing and dance,
celebrate and eulogize,
advocate and occupy,
vote and discern,
deliberate and contest,
debate or discern

A. By yourself,

for obvious non-competing economic and ego-monocultural social-political reasons.

B. With others,

especially if they too
like you,
breathe day in
as each night out
ecoconsciously bicameral wu wei
TippingPoint MidWay (0)-Balancing
shared-Earth-and-Atmosphere teleological vocation
as polyculturing ecotherapic love of Self as Other as Earth Holonic EcoSystems,
with cooperatively shared economies
of politically polypathic ecologic.

C. Both Plan A as Plan B,
mutually co-arising “truth” confluence as Tao’s WinWin Ego/Eco “beauty” Timing.
Thank you for always and everywhere choosing C,
and other PlanC-oriented candidates for economic and political
as ecological bicameral-balance
of Earth-thru-Ego-healthy leadership.
