Summer ReForesting School

what did you most appreciate
learning at school this summer?

Probably in Community ReForesting.
You know, the EcoTherapy Class
I took
instead of eating lunch,
using “lunch” loosely
as synonymous with edible,
or at least tangentially related to edibility.

Oh yes, that one.
What stands out for you most
in your Community ReForesting Cooperative Administration Class?
I’m about ready to fall off the edge of my ecopolitical seat
with hypnotically trusting wonder and awe.

So, yeah,
since you’re so fascinated and all,
it was studying the therapeutic ecological meaning
of the regenerative root systemic word for EduCation
as, basically, (0)Sum WinWin EcoPolitically refined Cation,
a revolutionary reweaving

you started with Cation trends of soil,
strength and nurturing flow optimization indicators,
and ended up back
at our (0)Sum

and hence your name,
another name for (0)Sum Cation HealthTrends?

thanks a lot for naming me after dirt Mom,
that helps a lot with the social life,
know what I mean?
Loved sharing summer memories,
getting back to Cation
to EcoCation
as Education
seems clearer to me
if you follow the historical-enculturing outline:

is a way of measuring,
contrasting WinWin to LoseLose dynamic production
and absorbing co-mentoring nutrient consumption,
bilateral exchange capacities
within soil.

is our way of RightBrain inducting,
while LeftBrain languaging,
contrasting WinHealthy with LosePathology
ecopolitically cooperative
collateral production and consumption nutrition-absorption trends,
bilateral hemispheric cooperative exchange capacity development/devolution
within 0-Core Gaian EarthTribe CoMessianic-Bodhisattva Souls.

is how we define

and LoseRight NonElite, Yin-repressed through Yang-dominant eisegetical,
from LoseLeft short-term exegetical deductive
AND LoseRight long-degenerative future through past inductive.

While EcoCation
added to the above,
reductive, non-bilateral balanced, EduCation
yields the full spectral balance of WinWin through LoseLose:

because WinWin is a healthier slow-growth change choice,
more naturally-spiritually nondual co-arising harmonic,

Thank you,
I’m sure that was clear to somebody,
although that person would not be me.

Now, Yang,
what did you learn at school today?
And remember,
this is not a competition about whose day was best
and most loving
and healthy
and cooperative,
much less a competition
to see who can go on and on the longest,
and fattest,
and most plutocratically fascist,
which is no way to run a reforesting summer school,
rather much monoculturally lessening
competitively learning
more Win to Lose
Business As Usual
in a Yang-supremacist culture.




The Senior Center’s Budgeting Party

We started slow and old-growth
yet steady.

The Senior Democrats
and Republicans
and Libertarians
and Independents
hosted a Community Integrity budgeting party.

Party favors were ballots
with options for small,
and extra large service sectors
beginning with agriculture and permaculture support
and ending with zoning and long-term planning expenses;
the whole A through Z list of community services
we want for and with each other,
sometimes less,
sometimes more,
yet always competing less for cooperative more.

This Community Integrity Party
looked and felt like
an Old-Growth ReForesting Party.

We began with separate caucuses
to discern these diverse quantitative options
as to their quality of cooperative root systemic investment.

Education small
would remove more holistic arts and therapies
of music and dance troupes and bands
and choreographed orchestrations,
organic and regenerative harvesting and replanting
rhythms and harmonies,
painting murals of hope
and writing sonnets of creatively
and re-creatively
healing history.

No one liked that,
although some Old-Growth Republicans began to look wistful.

Education medium
was Business As Boringly Usual.
Budgets to feed evolving minds and bodies
competing with investments in more sewer lines
feeding our rivers less toxins
yet not feeding our top reforesting soil more fertility.

Education large
began with cooperatively owned and managed pre-schools
and ended with post-doctoral studies
in synergetic community as forestry enrichment
for optimizing mutual health-wealth
ethical and aesthetic designs.

Education extra large
suggested listening and learning would become our primary mission,
non-violent service of and for our municipality,
cooperative ownership and governance
of regenerative,
annually reiterative,
Slow and Old-Growth ReEducation Parties,
feeding symbiotic organic fertilizers
to harvest health and wealth optimizing economic
and political outcomes.

Once the three caucuses were finished,
we formed one party circle
to compare reforesting notes,
to look for harmonies
and dissonance,
to see what both could together teach us
about further listening and learning
who to nominate as Community Integrity candidates.

We started our reforesting inside and out party
slow and old-growth steady,
then began raising young candidates
to manage family and community integrity,
living in and on our slow and old-growth reforesting
Cooperative NonViolent Education Planet.


Careful Revolutions

I believe great political
and psychological
and spiritual
and natural transitions
are places of great deep learning
with concomitant risk;
responsible for opportunities
with authority for absorbing requisite
and repulsing unnecessary degenerative risks.

These great transitions,
like weddings
and births
and deaths
and elections
and changes from winter toward summer
are yin-death of one thing
into yang-birth of another,
a commencement into regenerate opportunity,
decomposing multilateral historical risks.

This great transitioning political season wheel
turns through psychological reasons,
trusts and distrusts,
circling revolutionary around
creolic nature-spirit stories
of creation
with concomitant decomposition,
Yang opportunity
with multilateral Yin risks of devolution

Within this Tao wheel of regenerativity
are great transitioning edges,
where evolutionary change
emerges more revolutionary noticed.

Great transitional edges
are landscapes
wherein climate double-boundaries
between death
and embryonic birth
grow transparently thin
and bilaterally spacetime translucent.


PostMillennial Virus

What remains
when gratitude for learning
totally evaporates?

I don’t know…
Totalitarian senility, maybe?
I guess I don’t understand
the source of your question, dear.
Do you feel less grateful for learning
than in more formative years?

No, I don’t
but I sense younger generations might.
A PostMillennial Virus.

I sense a growing gap
between compulsory educational systems
and compulsive learning,
longing to grab hold of understanding
and thereby appreciating,
or I suppose sometimes even depreciating,
our relationships
with internal seasons, to-ing and fro-ing
with other human natures
older and younger and about the same age,
same size,
more and less similar gender appreciations
with other cultures and languages
with other foodchain and predative networking species
with our extended families, speaking of predative networks,
our schools and faith communities,
still stuck on predative networks?
our planet,
all facets of Earth sciences and arts,
humanities and inhumanities,
objective delineations and subjective articulations,
outcomes and incoming creolizations
suggesting further nuances,
narrowing tributaries for graceful bilateral canoes
destined forward and back toward
furrowing adventure.

I think I’m paddling right behind you.
It seems less insane
to ask our purposes for education
than our purpose for learning,
especially if we have the subject and objective reversed
and learning is our purpose.

Perhaps growing mental health
rather than insane pathologies
of ingratitude and severance from cooperative natures
might best apply in either case,
of learning health
or teaching wealth acquisition
and co-investing management,
including civil civic voter evaluations
rooted in longer-term transgenerational futures
rather than how much money raised last short-term.

When did school, and politics more generally,
become entirely about competing
for best scored returns,
about anger management
rather than cooperative mentorship and co-facilitation
for learning all integrities of life;
opposing cultural disintegrations of decay and death?

About the same time
the political value of a dollar
merged with economic idolatry of capitalism,
as if competitive hoarding of ego-infested values
were synonymous with learning healthy democratic outcomes
rather than these two,
capitalistic totalitarianism and healthy democracy,
in oppositional tension,
mutually learning gratitude
for healthy
and cooperative
deep ego/eco-logical learning.

Compulsory learning
to become a more balanced ego-consumer and eco-producer
is like compulsory love,
like mixing threat with love,
like fearfully competitive suboptimal living.

So are you against compulsory education
for all?

Yet I am against compulsory miseducation
because I am for grateful co-mentored learning
about cooperative classroom and real-world ecopolitics
increasingly swamped by competitive climates of pathology,
chaos about positive and double-binding negative psychology
dualistically equivocating and competing pedagogical systems
learning how to survive in a WinLose exegetical world
when we could relearn how to cooperate
in this WinWin more traditional classroom,
also known as ecosystemic Earth.

I can see where compulsive loving
sounds ever so much more fun
than compulsory loving.

Good point.
Learning is internally compulsive,
unless we mentor settling for externally compulsory,
left nakedly and overpoweringly alone,
rather than inviting multiculturing within.

No, dear, I said loving,
not learning.

Same difference.

Now that’s gratitude!
So what might you want to learn about loving
to more cooperatively learn right now?

Most any healthy thing
you might care to talk about,
or do together,
or talk and do.

Let’s try doing mutually grateful not talking.

How will we be sure it’s mutually grateful?

Not sure.
Guess we’ll just have to communicate
in other harmonious ways.

How about sex?

How about a pianoforte duet?

That’s what I meant to suggest.


UnHoly Punishments

“God punishes us for what we can’t imagine.”
Stephen King

What we can’t imagine
is what we won’t imagine
for lack of polypathic priority,
for too much fullness of rotting exegetical Promise.

What I won’t imagine
becomes what I would never choose to invest in,
to nurture,
both filled with fear
of self-emptying prophecy
and overflowing with love
for Earth’s fulfilling potentiality;
resilient with or without us
opposite of delineating pathology
through superego’s anthro-absence.

We evolve healthy wealth becomings
truncated by static nonverbal then verbal …isms,
unimaginably ebbing and flowing
what we have not yet hypostatically imagined dynamic,
ergodically patterned,
bionically rhythmed
creolically rocked
and matriarchal understory schism-rolled
rewards of and for Earth’s echo imagining bicamerality,
sacred nondual ecology.

God’s punishment
is for what we won’t imagine,
multiculturally polypathic together.


Afraid to Love Too Widely

This ancient apposition
between fear and love,
distrust and trust,
where fear reigns, love has already faded into too-distant hope;
where love co-redeems,
fear can naught but evaporate.

Such dipolar oppositions wear newer wings
of healthy permaculturing wealth
and impoverishing WinLose anti-systemic pathology.

These speak in transliterating dialects
of trusting regenerate truths
and distrusting degenerating dissonance,
absence of sustaining interdependent curiosity,
dipolar co-gravity.

Those who dance through bilateral designs
of permacultural influence
for polyculturing love’s integrative outcomes,
extinguish LeftBrain’s angry mono-political fears
of disintegrative eisegetical outgo.


PolyCulturing Education

Polypathic conversation with David Holmgren:

Today it is common to hear the suggestion
[cooperative] education and [therapeutic] training
is the [mindful] key to allowing people to contribute
to a more sustainable [ecopolitical] future.

Although I recognize the value of formal education and training
and [especially cooperatively-owned and managed] communications media,
they are also part of the [competitively commodified] problem
[and therefore also keys to more resonantly cooperative resolutions]
preventing [LeftBrain dominant] us from a more direct [RightBrain-inductive] connection with,
and [bilateral] experience of,
the natural[-spiritual co-arising] world
through [inductive/deductive bilateral] observation
and [bicamerally balancing] experience
[and work/play of curiosity/imagination].

Much could be said about how we need to modify formal education
and the [competitively capital-hungry] media
so they can contribute better to the [humane-sublime
creolic] revolution,
but we need to recognize several fundamental
[Leftbrain dominant enculturation] problems.

almost all education,
and especially higher [yet not necessarily deeper] education,
is [redacted] knowledge from secondary [audio-visual] sources,
interpreted through [competing specialist] frameworks
of [limited inter-relational] understanding.

Academic [exegetical LeftBrain dominant] training
that requires every idea and concept be referenced to refereed published [exegetical LeftBrain dominant] sources
is the extremity of this [conserving rather than transitioning] approach
to [reiterative monoculturing memorization
of what once was normatively true
and necessarily so,
yet perhaps not optimally or even sufficiently true
for all times and spaces and complex systems
and so yet hypothetically false,
BothAnd recreatively tensioned with EitherOr.]

information technology has accelerated the speed of circulation,
and reproduction [rights] of [nutritional/toxic] information.
The [commercial] professional packaging
of [LeftBrain reductive] secondary experience
in [massively cooperatively networked] media
promises faster and better ways
to [LeftBrain access others’] learn[ing].

For instance,
in comparison to the wildlife [ecological healthy/toxic] observation skills
and original [6-sensory-neural
(sight, sound, hearing, smell, touch, internal positive/negative feeling nutritional spectrum)
bicamerally polypathic ecosystemic]

almost all formal scientific education is based on bottom-up reductionist [STRUGGLING EITHER/OR AGAINST
top-down bilateral deductivist/inductivist BothAnd] thinking
[screening out cognitive-affective dissonance,
negative unresolved non-resonant psychology].

While the [cooperative multi]cultural harvest from specialized reductionist thinking over the last few hundred years
has been great
[and continues to accelerate],
it is the [cooperatively self-organizing] integration
and [creolizing] cross-fertilization of [regenerative Yang-cause] concepts
[Yin-nurturing/caustic BothAnd
matriarchal implicated affect] ideas
that is now providing the most fruitful results
for dealing with the [Yang/Yin eco]systemic [landscape/climate] problems
of the [regenerative-less/degenerative-more] environmental crisis.

Much of this [positive co-relational co-arising] integrated [comprehension]
is happening outside [formal] educational
[pathology-oriented, continuing competing-issues committed] institutions
[with highly competitive ecopolitical survival issues,
including chronic capital reinvestment].

information and communications technologies
are increasing these [cooperative paid-forward, co-redemptive] possibilities,
although this benefit is over [LeftBrain dominant] content,
and [redundantly tedious] replication over [re]creation;
[degenerative reiterative feedback loops
rather than cooperative self-governing
regenerative double-binding
ego/eco-conscious loops].

and most problematic of all,
formal education at the higher [yet not deeper] levels
is focused on digesting massive amounts of information
within the [slow-growth evolving creolizing] constructs
of separate [and alarmingly unequal] disciplines
and cultures
(such as [Left-Yang, EitherOr] science
and [Right-Yin, BothAnd] art
[nurturing octave flow-fractal regenerative functions,
like 4Base fractal/crystal group/game math,
and 4Season phylogenic reproductive rights and wrong]).

This education lacks wholistic [therapeutic] integration
with [health-wealth ecopolitically oriented] living experience
and its insights and truths often make little [shallow] impression
on the underlying [Right-YinFlow nurturing-absorbing-resonant] structures
of [comprehensive] understanding
and [internally felt committed] belief [as co-empathic trust]
created by [LeftBrain might makes right] family [conservative-supremacist] upbringing,
mass [consuming dominating producer] media
and popular [nationalized ecopolitical WinLose competition] culture.

In many fields
we find the [global glory] solutions
to [ecological within and without] problems
are known [and felt]
but are not [regeneratively] applied
for a myriad of specific [LeftBrain constipated cul-de-sac] reasons.

The core of these problems is [competing mutually mis-communicating and therefore gradually degenerating exegetical-monoculturing belief systems]
which people appear to [conserve to defensively] hold
have not been [creolic EitherOr-evolution/BothAnd-revolution] integrated with
and [regeneratively-therapeutically-cooperatively] reinforced
by their [Left-Right bicameral polypathic
ecologically ecopolitical] personal experience
[of regenerative health and competitively degenerative pathologies].

Note:┬áTransliteration of David Holmgren’s “Permaculture Principles & Pathways”, p. 20; adding in seasonings from Edward DeBono’s bilateral thinking and Buckminster Fuller’s synergy systems theory, and, of course, layering LaoTse generally across Yang-Yin as Left-Right creative bilaterally cooperative nondual dipolar appositionality.

Polycultural Education as if multiculturing double-bound Earth lives and deaths WinWin CoOperatively matter for health-wealth optimizing outcomes.
