When Life Feels More Right Than Wrong

How could education about Earth sciences and arts,
much less humanities
of both Yang truth
and Yin beauty,
not also remain consistent
with what is cooperative health v. competitive pathological,
root systemic?

That would be teaching Yang strength of function
without mentoring Yin-flow of temporal forms.

that would be like trying to imagine 4D spiraling space
without perceivable bilateral time for revolving change
stretching Yang forward strong, convexly
and Yin sacred flowing Elder back, concavely
through dualdark co-gravitating InForMating Time
double-bound exegetical through eternal CoPresent Interdependent Space
evolving revolving times.

Like no Left and Right space
without proportionally symmetrical revolving spiral time
unfolding Yang forms
and enfolding YinYin bilateral fold functions
(0)-Core ecopolitical balance,
both secularLeft and sacredRight
collateral values
of quantitative Yang strength
with qualitative YinYin Ego/EcoCational BiLateral Flow,
WinWin Root Systemic
polypathic ego/eco-intelligence.

And certainly we could not tolerate
such cognitive-affective chronic stress
any longer than creolizing revolutionary necessary
to achieve and delineate WinWin
economic and political
and psychological
and ecological, etc.
mythic math and wisdom science reweaving nature-nurture outcomes.


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
of Lovelock’s Gaian Hypothesis
plus Taoist as Zeroist
Yang+Yin = WinWin
equals notnot PolyNomial YinSquared

(0)Sum PrimeRelational-Fractal InFormation
is also ExFormation dualdark-squared co-gravitation,
or chopped up any non-equivalent cognitive-affectively dissonant
algebraic and non-geometric fraction of a function
or thermodynamic ratio or ration
or formational spacetime function as ecofunction
or reforesting synchronization
we might EcoCationally prefer.

you started with Cation trends of soil,
strength and nurturing flow optimization indicators,
and ended up back
at our (0)Sum
deep dualdark Black Hole
double-bound Zero
equals YinYin quantity/quality,
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 best CoMentoring
secularLeft and SacredRight
WinWin optimizing
EgoLeft with EcoRight root-systemic
reforesting Paradise Beloved Communities
enculturing Minds with healthy growing bodies,
one of which is named YinYin
for revolutionary dirt,
or some such oxymoron.

is how we define
and deductively delineate
WinLeftEgo (personal and/or national-cultural) exegetical
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:

WinLeftYang–0Sum–WinRight YinSquared (me, holonic-fractaled)
like DNA regenerative function with phylogenic fractal form,
interdependently holonic,
perpetuating bilateral
Four-Dimensional ergodic-spiraling
Spirit/Nature NonDual SpaceTime.

could bilaterally optimize Deep Sacred Ecology Learning
through enculturation of Left and Right balance,
polyphonic octaved
polypathic fractaled
creolizing polycultural health outcomes
Secular EcoCation AND Sacred EduCation Inductive Wisdom-Personal Eisegetical Felt Trust v Mistrust v Active Distrust
as re-mapped
by Elder RightBrain RNA
ergodic thermodynamic balancing
Eulerian Prime Function ReMemory
of Commons polyphonic multi-sensory octaves.

is our shared co-mentoring vocation,
bodhisattva everyday preoccupations,
currently embraced,
more or less Yang/Yin
WinWin harmonic balanced by
cooperatively self-organizing PermaCultural Designers
of interior landscapes and exterior climates of and for health,
delineated with production and consumption seasonally adjusted
systemic ego/eco-systems
as cooperativized by a few revolutionary feminist ecotherapists,
transgendering great transitional poets
transitioning great transgenderal lyricists,
cooperative ecopolitical evolutionary Gaian Theorists called EcoLogists
of original hypostatic zero-fractal unions,
Taoist Wu-Wei Tipping Points
dipolar co-arising
Yang + Yin
does not equal
Yang V. Yin (Win/Lose, Either-Or Deductive Dominant)
just as Both-And not(+)not(+)
does not normatively,
rationally equal
Either Win deductively (+) Or Lose inductively (-)
because WinWin is a healthier slow-growth change choice,
more naturally-spiritually nondual co-arising harmonic,
most physically and metaphysically regenerative,
like 0-sum fractal structure
of thermodynamically balanced
4D RealTime

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.




Sinking Expectations

I remember when
we asked about the quality of schools
before buying a house.

Now we know,
whether house shopping or not,
the educational outcomes will not be good
however better some than most,
yet now we need to ask about the quality of the local police department
before selecting a house
where they might prefer battering rams to open doors
over more civilly knocking,
prefer shooting to asking questions.

I remember when
we asked how liberating from wars
and violence
and oppression
our political candidates could imagine
and rhetorically explicate,
hope to promise.

Now we too seldom hope
for such vision of lofty and deeply rich heights,
and we need to ask the Government Economic Analysts
how many more will lose basic health and safety care-receiving,
because we cannot choose to care for all
in the latest version
of the virulently fascist anti-health bill.


Slow-Sure Building

“The idea of building something once to last
tends to occur to…practical people later in life,
after they have reconstructed a few things
they thought were good enough
at the time.”

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.


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.


Domestic Entertainments

I find my entertainments close to home
as nothing could be more wildly hilarious
and downright curious
than my own complex teenagers
who sometimes speak
and do their math
about what adds up toward our shared
and independent

Then there are cacophonous birds
mourning doves and sparrows
blue jays and robins
yellow finches and ravens
greeting dawning light
as if some unprecedented miracle were unfolding
about which they will chatter and chirp amongst themselves
for many generations to come,
like climate marchers
just happy to be here
for this climaxing stellar event.

Then too I have neighbor watching and listening
which picks up more during afternoons,
after school buses drop off
wounded and yet still wondering kids,
with dogs and cats and even grandparents
to greet them,
while moms and dads slave away
at their own employee entertainments.

Meanwhile squirrels and chipmunks
scold and scamper
with playful industry,
or playing at industry,
who could say?

Worms are burrowing in the garden,
although I hate to interrupt them
solely for my frivolous fancies
regarding appropriate adult entertainment.

They often respond, upon my thunderous devastation
of enlightening presence,
as if they were having some intimate moment
that I have immodestly exposed to light.
I apologize
and move on.

The bumble bees have posted flying sentries
around my front porch,
each flying in place all day long
tiny yellow and black helicopters
engaged in serious military intelligence gathering
over my scandalously erratic comings and goings,
importations and exportations,
and, even worse,
often actually sitting down on their porch’s swing,
rocking back and forth,
and staring back,
just as if I were not least bit intimidated.
Merely curious
about what’s so valuable at home
up under their roof
that they find me such a suspicious alien threat.

But really,
for me,
these bumbling buzzing sentries are merely entertainment.
I especially love to watch
when they occasionally dive-bomb each other
for some inscrutable random whimsy
in which it occurs to me
their placement may be a pageant
having nothing to do with me,
other than my enjoyment
of their benign entertainments
here in this home we share.

While star gazing
and looking for the moon’s rise and fall,
wax and wane,
sailing behind and between diaphanous clouds,
stretch my focus further out at night,
this seems to suit my at home dreams
as do these raucous insects
selling nocturnal sex and happiness
as if my backyard
on down toward the river
were their red light flowing district.

It amuses me,
hearing their combined intensity of purpose,
to continue my entertainments
on through each warm month night
until its time for those gospel choiring birds
to squawk and chirp
whistle and cheep
another at home climate marching dawn.
