Sweet Revenge

Greatest revenge
perhaps to become even.

Becoming even
to love what and whom Earth has given
and taken,
will give and take,
until we are each even.

Only wonder and no worries
about which gender you are and are not
or prefer to verge and submerge with and without
or even if you prefer them all
evenly
eventually.

Warmest wise investment
perhaps love within and between such events.

Public Sector Predators

I have lately noticed
WinLose bottom-line business competitors
lead within for-profit rabidly accelerating circles
and are not thereby well prepared
to produce effective robust outcomes
in a more WinWin democratic public service role,
elected or appointed.

I have further noted
general decline of original democratic public servant roles,
revolutionarily replaced by a competing public predator CEO role,
pirating political powers
to better hoard aristocratic economic rewards.

This has been the stuff of history,
fall of Empires,
but also for-profit failing corporations.

It is these latter corporate failures
even beyond more nakedly protected democratic losses,
where authority of position
includes authority to continue employing others
in your jail,
or setting lowly employees free
to market themselves elsewhere,
for democratic enriching profit
or for self-serving quarterly producing profits
for absent short-term disinvested owners
and their equally self-serving managers,
Colossus Trumpians, I suppose,
rather than the old school
public servant model.

Living in a self-seeking climate of growing pathology,
where schools neither mentor nor bother to even lecture
the socially cooperative primacy of mutual service,
grace of gratitude both given and received,
for civic responsibilities growing into interdependent authorities,
nor are parents necessarily skilled leaders
of mutually cooperative WinWin
ecopolitical skill-set development.

For these reasons,
and probably far remedially more,
it seemed right and normal,
good and proper,
that the best cooperatively judicious diplomats
of and for public policies and government procedures,
whether self-governing or also other-governing,
would be those with public servant sector backgrounds,
rather than private predative sector unforgiven foregrounds,
understories of evolutionary Might Makes Right.

Yet this model of competing ruthless leadership
just now appears a Commons lowering denominator
for both public and private sectors,
for more multiculturing cooperative wisdom.

It should be no more a surprise
to a U.S. President
that Presidents do not have unmitigated autonomous powers
of information disclosure
nor of information fabrication,
of energy sharing and conserving
nor of energy hoarding for further self-investing
even further autonomously unmitigated authorities
of revenge and competing egomanias,
than surprise to a CEO
of any healthy cooperatively-managed corporation
where private sector mutual service
and mutually subsidiary authorities
are co-responsibilities of all
who breathe and think maturely,
speak and listen democratically,
with heart beats
both diastatic wealthy
and systolic healthy,
both full and empty of ego/eco-viral powers,
mutually grateful
for all who live and laugh
midway between fully is and yet not yet.

Public private servants,
consuming no more relational powers
than we can individually and collectively reproduce,
replace,
recycle.

Because we elect and normally appoint
Public Servants
based on their prior experience
as Private Predators,
wealth and power accumulating hoarders
at their capital top
bucks stop here
in this pirate place
my allies and I have bought and sold for,
I am learning
that we don’t public service get
what we do private sexist and racist and elitist pest
invest in.

Application forms
and ballots
all seek WinWin caregivers,
too often counted and selected
by WinLose bully Presidents,
wearing Chief Executive Officer hats
rather than carrying Lead Servant Mentor portfolios.

Legislators and judges
educators and parents
achieve more wholesome outcomes
by remaining students of deep ecological listening
than by becoming teachers
of Ayn Rand’s egocentric economics
for antisocial climbers.

After School Jam Session

How was school today?

Fine.

Did you learn anything important?

Maybe. I’m not sure yet.

Really? What are you considering?

We talked about Howard Odum’s natural trinity
of altruism.

Maybe I skipped that day
way back in premillennial times
before Permaculture Design had taken over deep learning development.
Who is Howard Odum
and how does his natural trinity
diverge from my traditional Holy Trinity?
Or, maybe it doesn’t.

Howard Odum was an early systems theorist
who studied ecosystemic trends
of nutrition building and disintegration,
of sustainable balance
and runwaway monocultural disasters
like climate and landscape anti-nutritional pathologies.

Did you just say
climate change derives from monocultural overshoot,
a weedpatch taking over our garden,
also known as Earth?

I guess,
but in this case the weedpatch
is also known as over-industrialized
LeftBrain dominant
anthropoids.
But, the natural trinity of altruism
is about climates of inter-relational health,
and not about monocultures and anthropocentrism.

I’m sure I missed this class,
if they even had it back in my Baby Boomer day.

You probably just got the Holy Trinity part,
when you studied metaphysics.
I don’t think they were teaching ecosystemic theory
when you took MultiCultural Civics Development classes;
although Howard was published well before your high school years.

It probably took awhile for educators
to figure out the significance
of ecosystemic balance,
within and without,
rather than merely lecturing about unsustainable imbalances
hoping for civil democratically optimizing
multiculturing
and, thereby, self-other regenerative systems
as wellness,
and not so much sickness.

Anyway, so is there a summary version of this natural trinity
that you might share?

Well, yes, I suppose the basic idea is as simple
as any convex and therefore also concave implicated triangle.

I’m already lost.
No recall of convex and concave
in my Holy Trinity.

Oh, right…
you missed postmillennial Bucky Fuller metrics too.
Let’s see…
OK, Odum’s natural trinity
is a dynamic model for balancing lifetime energy investments,
but at two levels.
The individual biosystem.
And, the collective species’ regenerational biosystem,
conceived as a not totally discontinuous
ongoing spacetime ecosystem
sharing Earth with other biosystemic ecosystems.

At both of these levels,
individual and higher-order species,
about a third of energy invested into the system
is required for healthy metabolic regeneration
of each and every mental-physical system.

Another consumed third of energy
feeds back to maintain mutually subsidiary subsystemic prey,
providers of fuel and energy.

The last captured third of energy
produces re-investments outward
to what Odum calls
“higher-order system controllers.”

Do you have an example?
What might be one of my potential investments
in a higher-order control/nurture system?

Well,
in class
the hierarchical trinity we used
was grass in relationship with rabbits
in relationship with a predator,
like a fox,
for example.

So the rabbit’s energy waste fuels the grass,
and the more vulnerable rabbits feed the foxes.

Yes, especially the young and lame.
The ones who see and sniff and move less well.

I don’t see how that works out so well as a trinitarian third.
If you are young or lame or blind, especially.
But how does Odum approximate this one-third math
at the individual creature level?

That’s what we’re talking about in class.
I would imagine
if you view successfully hunted and devoured
from a predator’s perspective
you might feel the prey had made nearly a 100% re-investment,
perhaps omitting the larger bones,
in your higher-order controlling species.
Perhaps a hungry pride of lions.

This natural trinity of altruism
seems to suffer in the end
from more competitive taking without asking
and less cooperative giving without needing to be asked,
which is what I though altruism was more about.

I suppose Odum was looking at balanced ecosystems
as a resonantly deep whole,
in which about one third of a species’ generation,
as seen from God’s Higher Order perspective,
redeems the other two-thirds
by feeding the metabolic thrival needs
of higher-order predators,
controlling risks of overpopulation,
leading to monocultural landscapes and climates
of descending, and increasingly rabid,
pathology.

You mean like mother pigs eating their young
to better feed those remaining in her litter?

OK, if that actually happens
I’m not sure I wanted to know about it.
Also, if that happens,
then we are talking about an out of balance system
between generations within the same species.
Perhaps Odum was speaking of some cosmic balance of energy.
Really big picture.
Global.
Polypathic energy exchanges.

And maybe higher order systems
are not limited to controlling predators.
Perhaps a higher order ecosystems
might nurture potential victims
of Earth’s imbalance,
especially our young and enslaved and addicted
to competing sensory blindness
and malnourished projects for ego-identity expansion,
continuation,
until we each discover
that pain and loss and death
could be revisited
reconceived
as equal to two-thirds of cooperative life
and multiculturing gain
through monoculturing absence,
emptiness,
loss of egocentric WinLose interest,
divestment of self
as re-investment in higher-order YangControl/YinNurture balance.

So, that would be the connection, then,
between Odum’s natural trinity of altruism
and Christianity’s Holy Trinity
of and for Earth’s multiculturing altruism.

Where is Holonic Spirit
in this dual level trinity
of higher order control
with lower order nurturance
producing self-regenerating healthy wealth
of ego/eco-systemic Earth?

That would be the middle ego/eco feeding balance,
growing out to extend family identity
to include gratitude for nurturing embryonic cousins,
both Son and Daughter resources,
bicameral X and bilateral Y,
extending on through our ultimate individual biosystemic loss
to higher order nurturing.

co-arising nonduality
of 0-sum polypathic spacetime energy regeneration,
in 4D bilaterally co-gravitating
Commons-squared Folds
with dualdark ExFolding ExFormations.

You’re making that up
as you go along
aren’t you?

About one third, I would say.
Another third comes from Elder RightYin memories
and the final third comes out through LeftBrain Yang-explicating
language,
not necessarily higher ecological orders of balance
and resonant octave-fractal harmonics,
yet that is our Cooperative Democratic shared ideal,
I suppose?

And do we intuitively and multiculturally share
this 0-sum ecopolitical metaphysical development
do you think?

I hope so.
Otherwise I have a serious case of idolatrous
toxic imbalance going on,
contributing further to climates of dismay
rather than natural-spiritual trinities
of ecosystemic balance,
as was my original matriarchal intent.

You need to update, Mom.
Re-sync.
Get more health-wealth centered.

I thought that’s what we were doing together,
just now.

Oh, I get it,
kind of a higher order cooperative nurturance
of ego/eco co-investing systemic paradigms.

Very good!
Building mutual trust and identity expansion
by each reiterating ego-convex
with eco-concave
0-sum bilateral nurturing
creolizing communication order.

Wait a minute,
creolization theory
has nothing to do with systems theory
at least as captured and re-invested by Howard Odum.

Oh, I thought they sound and feel alike,
while one looks outside physical
and the other listens inside metaphysical.

Right.
Change of subject:
What’s for dinner?

Not sure.
What would you like to eat
and help me produce
for our future re-investments
in higher-order thrival
and ego-ordering metabolic survival?

Mom, stop.
This happens every time you ask me
How was school?
And I respond with anything other than
Fine.

Oh, come on,
you’re the one who said I need to update.
And, besides,
you might be able to use this.
Maybe in Political Philosophy next semester,
if not Permaculture Systemic Design this semester.

I’ll have to think about that…
There’s also that Polypathic EcoPolitics of Cosmology thesis
I’ve not quite finished.

Sounds like a tossed salad?

Strange Love

We are surrounded,
sometimes aversively beset,
upset,
by diverse warm and colder felt attributes of love.

We have each known and felt candidates for resonance,
waiting for our more stringent,
yet also generous,
articulation.

Those remaining who believe unfettering capitalism
must be forced for sake of appropriate and necessary liberties,
secured and maintained
even with military industrialized precision of commodified violence
and at least threat of strong and redundantly-armed offenses,
abuse and systematic nutritional neglect,
within our own corporal and capital punishing families,
wherein ego defensive strategies have been removed from conserving cooperatively resonant health,
in our local and state armed militias
contractually ready to represent us through arrest and fines
for crimes of poverty
and self-medication,
addiction and absent self-esteem
and lack of behavioral health and safety assurance,
and in our well-capitalized politicians,
not necessarily experienced with judicious cooperative diplomacy
even within their own extended family lives,
living in lack of love-leadership cities;
this BusinessAsUsual remaining ungrateful portion
of Earth’s self and other loving citizens
must be invited by and through mentors
refining attributes of sacred love.

We need to cool down strong words for sacred outrage.

It has been said
God’s love, like humane love,
can be ruthless against injustice.
A better word is relentless.

It has been said
Love sometimes requires us to behave savagely.
Better words encourage us to behave wildly and radically
and profoundly forgiving
with gratitude to Earth
for this mutually held
wildly extravagant
co-operative vocation.

It has been said
Sacred love is committed to destroying illusions
born of anger and fear and hatred’s nightmares,
mistrust growing active distrust
of this WinLose devolving
descending
species of would-be and self-proclaimed anthro-supremacists.

Yet it is more accurate and precise
to see
and smell
and taste
and hear
and grow love’s Full Yang/yin commitment
to Integrative/destruction of double-bound illusions,
born of both ShadowYang’s capital idolatry
of and to and for Ego’s greatest Plutocratic HealthClub Memberships
and ShadowYin’s rabid paranoid-bipolar resistance
to LeftBrain deductive-only,
no nondualistic inductivists invited
to play with double-binding dualistic reductists,
self-proclaimed both feet on floor realists,
segregating NaturalLeft-Physics from dipolar SpiritualRight-MetaPhysics,
ShadowYang’s anti-bilateral disculturing dominance,
overshoot of sacred Love’s
Left-Right polypathic harmonics,
refining word choices and concomitant feelings
of and for sacred multiculturing love.

Seeking ecopolitically correct advocacy
for PeaceWarriors conjoining JusticeMentors,
more judicious diplomats of love’s vast integrity,
inclusive of double-binding dualistic illusions,
born from fear
to redeem love’s dualdark co-gravitating potential.

We evolve and revolve diversifying attributes
of and for sacred ecology,
poignant and fertile love
of Nature’s Health/Spirit’s Wealth,
YangLeft struggling with and never against YinRight,
indigenously wild Win/Win integrities.

Republican Mothers’ Day

“The ways in which we apply these [polypathic-empathic] abilities
to controlling the excesses of growth and expansion
[by nurturing multicultural empowerment and creolization]
over the next century
will be the greatest [health-wealth nondual] test
of our [r]evolutionary [and democratic WinWin]
sophistication.” D Holmgren, Permaculture, p. 73

Sophistication is not
jingoism
nor tokenism.

Democratic evolutionary sophistication
requires integrity,
invites and nurtures polypathic integrity.

Until our League of Women Voters
becomes a Legion of EcoFeminist Speakers and Listeners,
Leaders and CoOperative Followers as CoInvestors.

Until our Democratic National Party
becomes a PolyCultural International Health Party.

Until our Republican Party
becomes a CoOperatively-Owned EcoTherapeutic Wealth Development Place.

Until each educational school
becomes a permacultural paradise
for HealthWealth Mentoring,
a remedial safe space
for battered and neglected
abused and exploited
Republican girls and women.

Until each Town Meeting
becomes part of an EarthTown CoOperative Discernment Network.

Until each political campaign
becomes a NonViolent Communication progression
of and for EcoPolitical CoOperative Trust
of and for Earth’s Peace as Ego/EcoJustice.

Until supremacist Plan and Type A
competing WinLose Yang
reweaves equivalently
with Plan and Type B
nurturing WinWin Yin.

Until Left deductive dominance
conjoins again with Right inductive nutrition v toxin.

Until masculine strength with endurance
also means EcoFeminist nurturance
through mutual cooperativity.

Until day
becomes not so much nightmare.

Until the post-millennial population of Republican women
becomes an oxymoron,
a population of zero,
Empty Vacuous Set
now singing more resonant harmonies

Theological Traditions

If scriptural exegesis
is also theology as ongoing process,
and process at least hopes for progress,
then no surprise
that Process Theology becomes explicitly evolutionary,
and, more precisely,
a revolutionary regenerative v degenerative emerging process
of polypathic consciousness.

Herein lies an eco-intelligence

if deductively patriarchal dominant–matriarchal submissive,

Great Commissions/Small Omissions

In all things, give thanks.

Surrounded,
overwhelmed by claustrophobic depression,
gratitude.

Gratitude, a sacred noun,
positive attitude, a secular verb phase.

Depression and gratitude,
depressed gratitude,
mystical oxymoron.
Impossibly essential
potential.

Repression and victory.
Hope in and through blind and deaf,
senseless faith in power of positions
over doubling down negative
to co-arise resonant resolutions.

Suppression yet naked clarity,
dualdark yet light-squared
and cubed
and fractal holonic,
holy,
sacred self enslavement,
mortality
despair.

Desecrated Earth
and inhumane capitalized bodies,
giving thanks
in dawn’s promised dusk.

Within,
above,
below all,
giving thanks receiving thanks,
sacred acclimating gratitude,
humbling attitude.

Great commissions,
emissions,
omissions;
elevating attitudes
descending through our past.
Elevators rise to fall to rise
within great and small commissions.

Paradise fulfills embryonic love
as love grows roots in positive faith
as faith emerges out of naked hope
as hope fertilizes absence of mistrust’s despair.

Desperation’s absence
begins with absence of pathological denial,
returning Earth’s embryonic trust
with mistrust,
light squared fertility
returning dualistic darkness.

Energy is capital,
our regenerative god
and our degenerating idolatry.

Our subsidies
grow our investments in future health
and our divestments out of past pathologies.

Information is the capital derivative of energy,
as exformation departs from embryonic negentropy.

Great commissions of gratifying robust systems
grow from small omissions of dissonant mistrust.

In all trusted and mistrusted things, give thanks.
