Causality
I explore the prospects of a causal explanation of constitution, persistence, and emergence. I will suggest that the idea that causation involves the mutual manifestation of disposition partners allows us to think of compound entities as mutual manifestations of dynamic interactions between the parts that constitute them, and their persistence as a result of that dynamic interaction. However, I think we need to modify the conception of mutual manifestations. The mutuality has been described in terms of the equal importance of so-called disposition partners—pairs of active and passive powers—while the interaction between the objects that wield such powers is characterised as unidirectional; one object acts while the other receives the influence of the action. This view is challenged by the fact that the natural sciences do not recognise any form of unidirectional action. Instead they depict all interactions as perfectly reciprocal, in the sense that whenever one object exerts an influence, the other simultaneously exerts a proportional influence of the same kind on the first, but in the opposite direction. I suggest that to accept the reciprocity of interactions only strengthens the viability of a causal account of constitution, persistence, and emergence.

 

I wonder if this same causal effective explanation might apply to bicameral co-passion and bilateral health investments, and co-gravitation, for that energy matter, temporal binomial inside/outside space, ego eco-ing experiential neurometric prime relationship of left and right hemisphere co-passionate communion; where Yang=1x and Yin=0y-squared to the four dimensional nutritional recycle of octave double-binary fractal strings of regenerative DNA bicameral bilateral ergodic potential structure of compassionate golden rule consciousness.

Positive Neurological Psychology

The problem with positive psychology,
said the good doctor,
it is too social science squishy,
not leftbrain prickly enough
for natural science pathologists
proctologists
urologists
cardiologists
and invasive neurologists.

I must concede
not prickly enough
indeed
said the polyvagal systems neurologist,
but sometimes premature complexity
looks like yet another chaos theory,
and sometimes spiritual prepowerment
feels like merely natural enlightenment
yet deja vu,
and sometimes too bilaterally sticky
predicts co-arising redundant dipolarity,

Neurological bilateral structures
of left meets right hemispheres
as West greets East
multicultural mediation
as ego hugs ecosystemic health-rooted trees
of reverse hierarchical
above Truth lies downside Beauty.

Mesmerizing,
I’m sure,
temporized the Earth Therapist,
while human nature
military-industrializes ancient cooperative relationships
the remainder of EarthTribes
continue to evolve and emerge,
breathe out and in
bilateral gooey prickles
social and natural
metaphysical and physical
ecosystemically informed egocenters,
communitarian capitals,
well-timed spatial places

Not knotted polyvagal positive theories
of EarthMother’s original neurological root systems,
bicamerally restructuring
to emerge new leftbrain capital-invested upstarts
of deductive
reductive
extractive
either/or dominant thinking

When too engorged,
unilaterally engaged,
prejudicially divested,
unknotted,
untied,
profoundly detached
yang v yin pathology
for sufficiently prickly/gooey
mountainous river valleys of in-between
ego/ecometric bardos balance

Living/dying
inside outside EarthTribe
cooperative bilateral empathy
ecologically theological,
naturally social sacred,
historically multicultural,
anciently new green organic age,
biological neuro-system flowing

Fractal DNA
primal four dimensional spacetime
not ZeroSum

ZeroCore
prickly full of Either/Or bilaterals
and gooey Both/And bicameral
not not empty
enthymematic reiterations
of prickly force Yang
and gooey flow Yin,
win/lose exploration
and win/win absorption,
exhaling capitals
and inhaling communions,
natural empowering light
and social enlightening beauty
of positive eco-political psychology.

Allies Toward Nirvana

Our Buddhist alllies,
co-immigrants
moving away from samsara,
like Abrahamic Westerners,
NorthWesterners
and MidWesterners
and East-West Earners,
emigrate toward nirvana–
secular illusion
evolving toward sacred enlightenment,
natural delusion
revolving into spiritual prelusion,

Yet we have this climatic problem
of pathology,
win/lose evil corrupting
ZeroSum energy systems,
power networks,
regenerative empowerment.

Genesis narratives
speak of empowering Eden,
then the Great Unraveling,
Win/Lose decay into samsara,
left-brain dissonant dominance,
Either EgoMe or eco-you,
RightBrain nirvana win/win recession
awaiting remission

Of a wise ecofeminist serpent
where lusty predation
revolted against God our PeaceCreator.

Like Unitarian–RightYin hemisphere–
Universalists–LeftYang-hemisphere–,
Taoists speak not of God as Creator
but of Tao as Regenerative Process
of Earth’s intelligent fractal seasons
reincarnated in DNA’s fractal functions,
double-negative paradox
double-binary primal Four Dimensions
of NonZero-Sum polypathic
neurological nirvana

Evolving from ZeroSum samsara
revolutioning
reverting back toward nirvana

Inhaling EarthJustice
exhaling EgoCentrism
evolving Restorative Justice
revolving AnthroCentrism

Absorbing samsara–
God of capitalism
God of retributive angry injustice
God of systemic racism
God of Yang v Yin
God of Left v Right
God of West v East
God of North v South

Reincarnating nirvana–
polypathic Regenerative Power
BiLateral Light
BiCameral Energy–

Neurological
Ecological
Biological
Geological
Theological cooperative branches
AND root nutritional systems
Revolutionary Win/Win
Meta-MusEcology
for all Allies toward Nirvana.

Revolutionary Earth Balance

“I too dance the rhythm of this moving world.”
Rumi

Ego too dances DNA revolving
spiraling rhythms
patterns
holistic silence
particular tones,

Confluent and dissonant,
comparative and contrasting,
cooperative and competitive,
economic and political
social and psychological

Empowering peaceful balance
within this moving
living
ecologically connected Earth
touched by Day and Night

Ego-centering co-invested light
dancing local
balancing
revolving global
Eco-systemic compassion might.

I too balance
tip-pointed rhythms
within and upon
this moving
revolutionary Earth Day.

Restoring Inside Justice

Healing Win/Lose EgoNomial Intent

We belong together
Through all kinds of colonizing corporate weather,
We belong creolizing together.

So sings my mitochondrial DNA
when I listen deeply
to all prior matriarchal regenerations
speaking in still
soft
timeless win/win voices

Especially about polycultural outcome opportunities
and monocultural injustice
incoming risks.

I am obsessed with anxiety about climate change.
I own this disability to feel safe
sufficiently secure
to feel confident my granddaughter
will live on a healthier Earth,
will live in a wealthier bicameral empowering situation,
will live for a more cooperative win healthy ecology
to win a truly wealthy
resilient domestic economy.

I’m meeting with some folks from an Episcopal Church
inspired by St. James,
sons of the Lesser Alphaeus
and Greater Zebedee
and James the Just
we could matriarchally say,
and an All Souls UniveralYang
UnitarianYin
BiCamerally Liberal ReAssociation.

All folks who share some concern with Adam Robersmith,
about how we might engage each other
to “Cherish Our World:
Avoiding Despair
in Environmental Justice Work.”
(in “Justice On Earth,” Skinner House Books, p. 47)

My RightBrain ear was listening
with those voices from past generations
speaking in present mitochondrial matriarch-restoring voices
to reassure us of timeless compassion
for EarthTribe’s wealthiest ecofeminist future.

Robersmith: “Watching the public debates about climate change is an exercise in resistance.”

The GrandMothers: Listening to internal dialogue
with changing win/lose climates
actively creolizes resonance.

Robersmith: “It involves a resistance to willful ignorance;
resistance to accepting all statements, especially unsubstantiated ones, as facts;
resistance to the despair that can rise within us as we face the public discourse,
the science,
and the toll taken on human communities.”

The GrandMothers: Cherishing our healing justice process
involves a resistance to willful dissociation
from the intolerable;
resistance to internalizing shame and blame communications,
especially unsubstantiated egocentric
narcissistic
anthropocentric elitism predicting universal injustice
as normless facts;
resistance to NonElite despair
rising within us
as we face StraightWhiteMale dominant
corporate debate,
masquerading as win/win discourse,
discerning and restoring market science
despite the toll taken on multiculturally robust communions.

Robersmith: “Unfortunately,
our individual reactions to human-caused climate change
can also be unhelpful
in terms of finding solutions.”

The GrandMothers: Unfortunately,
individual actions to self-caused
and family-caused
and tribal-caused
and LeftBrain dominant communication-caused
overheating climate change
can also be monoculturally unhelpful
in terms of finding cooperative win/win imagined resolutions.

Robersmith: Some of us are panicking.

The GrandMothers: AnthroSpecies is panicking,
trending toward lose/lose competitive corporate rabidity.

Robersmith: Some are refusing to listen.

The GrandMothers: SWM LeftBrain dominance
continues to violently speak and autonomously act
more than non-violently win/win listen.

Robersmith: “Some are trying to scare everyone into certain behaviors
(whether to reverse or ignore climate change),
and others are just reporting what they think they know.”

The GrandMothers: Some are trying to persuade,
prophecy lose/lose pathology
within everyone
feeding uncertain restraining,
restrictive
retributive justice
and stingy win/lose compromised peace
known as impatient tolerance of further war
violence
divestment away from health
(whether to reverse RightBrain punishing Other
or deny evermore WinElite-LoseNonElite culture not-change),
and others are just reporting
what we think and feel we need safety,
health,
resonant wealth,
resiliently robust compassion.

Robersmith: “With all this debate and reaction,
a problem that is as large as climate change
can cause paralysis,
ineffectiveness,
and despair.”

The GrandMothers: While not listening to what others feel
we cooperatively need,
With all this win/lose political theological debate
rather than win/win economic ecological discernment,
With all this retributive reaction
rather than restorative win/win dialogical communication,
a problem that is as large as climate change
and species mortality
and global extinction of all regenerative energy systems
can cause egocentric paralysis,
competitive win/lose ineffectiveness,
corporate economic despair
about LeftBrain dominant
SWM privileged
violent runaway Win/Lose
Either/Or
Thinking v Feeling
monocultural
monochromatic
monotheistic
monocapitalistic
monoelitist rabidity.

And still inside singsong continues,
a uniting pidgin neurological language
feeling thought integrity:

We belong together
Through all kinds of colonizing corporate weather,
We belong creolizing together.

Feminist Ecolory

When Yin was growing down
and into belonging
still in EarthMother’s warm wet womb,
she followed her interdependent 0-wheels
of enscripted color and sound octaves,

Appreciation for multicultural sensory integrity,
primal relationships of sight and scale
felt polyphonic longing and/or belonging,
meta-physical creolization,
gratitude for polycultural dialogue
and consensual democratic circles
warm to discernment,
co-empathically seeking full-round consensus.

Meanwhile,
as Left-hemisphere dominant Yang
was colonizing out
and patriarching up,
he conserved 1-universal BusinessAsUsual monochrome
in triumphal shades of dark static non-elite nights
and peak triangulated wealth experiences of white
light
universally transcendent bright.

Yang thought in bipolar Either/Ors
of black or white
while Yin felt through dipolar Both/And
circles and cycles
spirals of nuanced multiculturing colors,
tones,
hues and felt cries
and sighs
and shy.

As they learned gratitude
for each Other’s 0/1 GoldenRule
and 1/0 GoldenRatio preferences of bipolar thought
and dipolar intersectional warm feelings of belonging
they deep learned democratic cooperative compassion
for healthy regenerativity
as positively and politically and economically
and ecologically and theologically
and analogically polypathic,

And mutually-owned disdain
for competitive win/lose longing,
reductive RightWing dominating seductive LeftWing
with aggressively monochromatic degenerativity,
negative paradigmatic dissonance,
both cognitively and affectively ineffective

Especially as Yin deeply repurposes growing down
and in
still under MotherEarth’s warming
wetting
multicoloring NonZero-Sum womb
loving democratic
meta-energetic
ecofeminist healing life.

ReAttachment Therapy

And did you change your biological climate
by evolving your bicameral history’s listening culture?

Or did you change to win/win culture
by revolving healthier climate potential?

“And did you get what you wanted from this life
even so?”

“And what did you want?”

“To call myself beloved,
to feel myself
Beloved [with] the Earth”
together
intrinsically bicameral
implicately bilateral
unfolding grace
of Earth’s binomial place.

The DNA Web; Not RNC Wall

Resilient Climate Consciousness
as old as DNA,

Indigenous spiral ways of regeneration
invite revolutionary principles from yang equal egos
through yin eco-interdependent integrity
double-boundary systems
developing ecological economies of emotion,
deeply wealthy opportunities
for knowing resilient climate health.

This original integrity way of life,
not risky death,

(1) Prejudicially favors living cooperatively re-connecting
with our DNA extended family
from both sides
ecofeminist sacred East
and patriarchal secular West.

(2) This LifeWay invites bilateral/bicameral mindfulness
of win/win opportunities
to extend sacred compassioning attachments,
to re-incarnate past secular harmonic agreements.

(3) In this way
we have developed
with every attractive win/win opportunity,
distractive win/lose risk,
and unattractive lose/lose
all living future desecrating experience
of relationships fragmented
unrelationship
anti-relationally
conscious of climatic stress,
unconscious systems unraveling,
anti-conscious against integrity’s re-connecting health
with wealth potential.

(4) This DNA Way
sustains resilient health systems
of Earth’s synergetic web
resonating collaboration

(5) Through bicameral processes
of cooperative ego-win/eco-win
co-passionate experience

(6) And our natural-yang/spiritual-yin
re-connections
left with right
ego with eco-therapeutic climate consciousness

(7) Prejudicially favors living cooperatively
with our DNA health/wealth
extended EarthTribe family…

On Health We Agree

Earth History, lectured Fr. Time,
has always favored leftbrain culture,
too either/or bipolar
to rightbrain’s more both/and interdependent way
of feeling and touching,
hearing before seeing and speaking
in rhyming reason,
not out of season.

It was leftbrain’s technology of coins
that led to capital value economic systems
severed from nutritional ethics of ecological relationship
connection
co-attachment
of leftbrain healthy intentions
with rightbrain wealthy sensations

For secular thoughts and sacred feelings
surrounding
embracing
inviting physical integrity
with metaphysical sweet spots
longing for climax
regenerativity
resonance
resilience.

Our leftbrain cognitions
reasons
awareness
remain culturally suspicious
of rightbrain’s primordial ecofeminist wildness,
attachment to both/and interdependent webs
where leftbrain would liberally build, at healthy best,
egalitarian walls of fragmentation
between identities of loyal egocentric
anthrocentric wealthy nations

Now composed of rightbrain under-educated
under-formed atrophy
of rightbrain both/and co-passions,
healthy-wealth of eco-political family empowerment Time

For MotherEarth and I
to reconnect healthy rapture
with wealthy liberal resilience,
both/and attachment feelings
with either/or discernment revolutions
less industrial
so more organic,
less patriarch competitive
so more ecofeminist cooperative,
less colonizing divestment of under-performing rightbrain properties,
so more robust creolizing transubstantiations
of communal left/right
ego/eco
health/wealth compassion therapies

Balancing nutritional polycultures within
while harmonizing health/wealth climates without.

EarthMother co-responds,
My sacred creation story is this same integrity’s potential future,
but begins win/win upon Fr. Time…

On this we agree,
writes and prints,
publishes then promulgates Fr. EnLightening Time
to and for and with all EarthMother’s fertile tribes
capable of listening
and remembering multiculturing DNA’s regenerate history,

LeftBrain colonization appropriates aggressively
anthropocentrically
monoculturally
industrially commodifying EarthMother’s healthy wealth,

Exercising supreme ecopolitical control
over Earth’s multiculturally compassionate webs
of polypathic future regenerations
reknitting
reweaving
restoring leftbrain natural health
with rightbrain spiritual wealth,

Favoring cooperative capital co-investments
over competitive
either/or
capitalism unholy divestments
from Earth Rights and Responsive Responsibilities
of all sacred communing
climaxing EarthTribes.

Spiritual Culture Association

WellBeing,
personal and political,
economic and ecological,
comes in at least two colors,
maybe four,
possibly octaved more,
but for every listening then speaking you,
natural health
green-blue,
and spiritual wealth
red-blooded true.

Natural health
longs for individual freedom
for nutritional,
nourishing,
nurtured rights
of cooperatively creolizing life
toward more wins winning climax climates
and long-term polycultural outcomes.

Spiritual wealth
belongs securely in interdependent polypathic webs
of family extending back past historic MayFlowers
and indigenous FireCircles
to DNA eco-governing couplings

Synergy
emergent integrity
in revolutionary surprising healthy multicultural ways
and making means resilient
brilliantly safe and secure health
from generations past
for regenerating future climate win/win sustainability,
inside-ego and outside-eco
co-present awareness,
self/other conscious attachment,
re-connection.

Individual health rights
and collective wealth responsibilities,
freedoms, both to and fro, equally co-responsive
and secure wealth of health
interdependently optimal;

Two color culture faces
of one civil and communal covenant
within healthy climate
historic revolutionary multicultures,

Earth health rights
for responsible
cooperatively managed resource wealth,

Ultra-nonviolent
global communi-nation,
through less defecation
of EarthMother red co-attachments fueling spirits within
MotherEarth green-blue integrity potentiating natures without;

GreenBlue
co-inviting ReStorativeRed.
