The dregs and tumors of decay
predict the medicine and balance of life.
Those who stand on tiptoe do not stand firm;
Those who stand with equal weight,
bipedal-planted, do stand firm.
Those who strain their stride do not walk well;
Those who stride well-timed,
grasping out only when and where environment reaches back,
walk optimally endowed for matching power with positive co-passion.
Those who reveal themselves are not luminous
because those who reveal us to ourselves are too bright.
Those who justify themselves are not far-famed
because those who justify us to ourselves mentor just rightness
with integrity of present truth with future promise.
Those who boast of themselves are not given credit
because those who boast of us within all Earth’s Tribes are mutually credited,
by all natural systems.
Those who pride themselves are not chief among human nature
because those who pride us within all nature are “spiritual leaders”.
These, in the eyes of Time’s transparent matter balancing energy,
Are called “the dregs and tumors of decay,”
things of disgust, disvalue;
AND are called “the therapy and harmony of fully integrated life,”
optimizing relationships of economic and ecological value.
Therefore those of Time’s natural transparency of space,
absorb eco-balance of Yang/Matter deducing-inducing
Yin-Yin Iconically Gravitational Balance.
One Yin without Her energetic Second,
Ego-death inviting faith in
TransParency of Eco matter/energy;
transparent Time, 0 soul of ecologic,
0 sum total of economic transactional values,
universally quintessential PlaceHolder,
both Yang with Yin,
“dark” matter rhyming hydrogenic form,
“dark” energy timing helionic understory
of Earth’s ancestral permacultured
Ergodic Fractal Tree.
Ego death is both a silo isolation risk
of 0-static flatline,
and yin with yin,
coincidental co-relational opportunity,
opening a return to dominance of eco-Self’s primal identity
“whole system universal body-mind” levels
consciousness of memory as in-telligent in-coming in-form-ation.
Life evolves rooted within cellular systems of id-RNA-entity,
eternal holonic binomial
transparenting matterYang with integrative energy, Yin-Yin.
Natural systemic wisdom is exegetically shared
through Commons of RNA/DNA roots,
while eisegetically shared through sacred synergetic ecologic,
positively co-operating eco-normic heuristics,
multisystemically liturgical language
with Earth-warmed rhythms and patterns,
sounds with sights,
smells with tastes,
feelings of mutual gravity toward our shared medicinal
avoiding toxic intent and praxis
of negative-live dissonance
monoculture of unconscious entropic chaos,
“Death” equals isolation,
a silo sential silent “0” PlaceHolder,
faith in absolute isolation of ego-Self-identity
and “whole system embodied mind”
as tri-systemic levels
of conscientious mutually-transparent,
subsidiary yet co-incident,
TransParenting FormYang with FunctionYin/Yin
Open Bionic System.
To co-prehend this ecologically economic conclusion of “Death”,
is to comprehend cooperative optimization,
Earth Tribe’s Polyculturing Life.
