Organic Empowerment Systems

It seems we might find
currently undervalued economic

by applying organic principles
of our healthy PolyVagal NeuroSystem,
at least polyhonically shared
by all God’s devilish

This NeuroSystemic structure
is fundamentally bilateral

When Wealth Is Not A Noun

If health is just an unprivileged noun
and healthy is her adjective,
what is dynamic healthing,
the man-verb?

Some think healing LeftBrain Yang,
others feel therapeutic RightBrain SacredYin
matriarchal mostly.

But we all can bicamerally find active healthing
in secular/sacred Integrating,
cooperative creolization,
deductive/inductive transubstantiation.

Or do you find ego-healing
in secular dominant segregating
dualistic thinking about health
with no sacred hope of truly beautiful wealth
through one mere mortal lifetime?

Integration’s noun is Integrity
which is as sacred,
or merely LeftBrain dominant secular,
as organic bilateral life ourselves
lived fully Golden Ruled
for our CoMessianic selves
and our originally disintegrated
Bodhisattva ego-health/eco-wealth
yang/yin holistic
ZeroZone zen

Dear New with Old England

Dear Local Boards of EcoSchool Education,
Departments of Environmentally Protected Walkable Transportation,
Cooperatively Maintaining Public-Private Works
and STEAM Play
and WinWin GreenGames,
Hysterical Historical Associations,
Social Work Departments of Climate Restorative Therapy,
and Public Health-Wealth Departments:

Did you leave anyone out dear?

Just the usual lower non-elite 10 to 50 percent
still graduating from WinLose counter-evolutionary
Right Might Fights
secularized deductive-only school.

You mean LeftBrain
Business As Ego Terrifying schools?

I’m not sure, really.
I never fully experienced
an urban capital-infested
RightWing militarizing
WinLose patriarchal
anti-WinWin matriarchal
BadFaith school.

Because you choose to see YangHere
with YinNow,
within breathed out
as manna ingested
co-invested eco-in.

Bread womb of life inside memories
as breath of matriotic love
outside images.

please continue with your Letter to English Editors
of Town Bulletins, dear.
Although why you need to write everything outloud
in strings of regenerative ecologic
while inside singing and dancing in matriotic octaves
is so much spiral dynamics transporting
and more fun,
I cannot polyphonically imagine.

OK, continuing–
Most of our composting neighborhoods
arose before oil and gas burners
mechanized transportation
for both domestic song and dance tranquility
and international militarized terror.

For this epic creolizing-colonizing reason,
we could enjoy a deeper learning opera network,
polypathically useful operations
for polyculturing healthy highways
and byways.

For economic co-invested reasons
we could choose more walkable
and bike-enabling neighborhoods,
more child and extended family friendly.

We could affordably choose
some narrower edible chestnut tree-lined lanes,
intersecting frequently
in community cooperative gardening squares
and WinWin organic Green triangles
and peace restorative pentagons

Rather than continuing to choose
last gasps
of a more drive-thru-able
stinky mechanical WinLose devolving city.

For political and social communication reasons,
we might better cooperatively own and manage
convenient and safer,
better nurtured pedestrian
street transporters
with warmer and cooler
and more therapeutic communicating destinations

For good faith reasons
we could choose natural neighborhood homeo-nonpathological drugstores,
more outdoor ecoschools
and after-school Green STEM projects
and Green STEAM repurposing arts
and reforesting sciences,
more organic and locally-grown grocery stores
and nutritionally walkable transporting ecosystems.

For good health reasons
we could cooperatively choose
to place,
adjacent to bad breath congesting highways
leading out to bioregionally giant
polluted feeder interstates,
cooperative ecoschool
and goodfaith community gardening grids
of humane-breathable streets
for solar electric streetcars,
ample horse-powered bark and repurposed chip,
stone and hand-made brick ways
to make our healthy peddled and walked
therapeutic rounds.

We could choose transport and communication channels
flowering with urban reforesting projects and policies
and planting/harvesting co-investment procedures
for eco-cooperative living,
smart deep growing therapeutic residents
with repurposing life vocations
in local downtown ZeroZone permaculturing centers,
eco-centric port authorities
for feeding healthy mouths
like our Sacred Thames River
flowing outstream
to Atlantic
and Pacific,
Indian and Northern

WiseElder surfing Seas,
seasons New Moon drenched in dualdark Soul
and FullMoon pulled toward
climate ecotherapies.

We could choose
to guard against merely drive-thruable cities
against double-binding future-past
eco-walking climate ego-change
for reducing waste fueled overconsumption.

We need not always choose
individual ownership of mechanized technologies
over cooperatively enabling
diverse and re-acclimating resilient respiratory response
to future indoor-outdoor climate pathologies.

We could choose to not suck in
further competitive WinLose public-private investments
for monoculturing solutions
far short of polycultural deep sacred-secular learning
resonant resident resolutions.

We could choose
co-arising secular Left and sacred Right
ecological-theological healthy initiatives
to reforest
New and Old England’s most resonant
historical resilience.

Too many words, dear.

How many
too many?

Go for ZeroZone eruption
into Wondrous Beauty
and Secular Awe.

I was.
I did.
I am.

Well then,
great and beautiful transition done, honey.
Now who are we?
And where are we cooperatively becoming?

You are insatiable.

Only with co-arising you,


Our CoOperative Lemonade Stand

New Economics is Feminist Peace-Restorative Economics,
about cooperatively nurturing healthy nutritional investments
rather than WinLose dyspeptic high risk
divestment competition games.

Have you seen a Rockwell 1950’s Lemonade Wars?
Two girls, both white of course,
dressed for YoungRepublican success
scowling at each other on a pristine deserted street
of the tree-lined suburban variety,
arms folded across their angry relentless middle-class chests,
shoulders hunched for their LoseLose anger battle.

Each stands before her lemonade stand,
across the street from one other,
each with a sign that originally says 10 cents,
but with a bold line across it,
replaced below with a somewhat smaller 5 cents,
also crossed out,
followed by a 2 cents price war notice,
about which the entire neighborhood apparently would not give 2 cents
to get involved.

Would this be less surprising if we were looking at two white boys?
How about two brown-skinned boys?
Does the humor have more of an edge to it?
Or perhaps it’s no longer funny at all.
Maybe more about just another racist stereotype
about not having two suburban cents between them,
about what is intelligent multicultural economic behavior.

Do you think it more likely two girls might have formed a cooperative?
Replaced their two tables into one larger street presence,
faced their two signs both up and down the street
to better alert oncoming traffic seeking therapy,
rather than aim them across the street at each other
like weapons of mutual traumatic disdain,
splitting their take at the end of a lovely day
chattering away with and between more convivial customers.

But, probably less likely for two boys from the 50’s and 60’s.
Today, I’m not so sure.
Perhaps boys and girls, and all between,
are learning a healthier,
more fertile,
way of doing the cooperative math,
finding profit through ecopolitical interrelationships.

We have feminist psychology and therapy and medicine
and politics
and theology and history and sociology
and probably anthropology, for all I know.
Research and theorem proofing and disproofing
more likely to unfold through networking circles
of mutual refolding nurture
than competitive marching in bought-and-sold squares
of irrational spiritual distinctions
without seminal natural difference.

So, why is New Economics not called Feminist EcoPolitics?
Maybe it is, but not where I live
and not where I have non-matriotically read,
but I still hope to see more cooperative non-violent lemonade stands
across suburban and urban and rural divides,
blending gender divides to make lemonade out of,
well,… whatever you have of potential nourishing value,
discarding over-heated presumptions of gotta-have competition,
to pour out equivalent power-assumptions of cooperative ecopolitics,
where Golden Rules apply transgenderally
as Golden Ratios reply transculturally,
producing Golden Elixirs of inclusive consumer-producer satisfaction;

This day we will have done well
and faithfully,
and trustingly,
and justly.


Let Us Speak Clearly Together

Let me speak clearly with you
dear religious and atheist Trumpians,

A fool in executive office
is a leader
only in foolish directions.

A rich thief
is the worst thief
as survival motives
are absent,
so self-thrival motives
remain piratically rampant.

An intellectual prostitute
to feel-good politics
is an ecopolitical whore,
competing for economic gain
after self-deluding blinders to ego’s mortality
are in place,
no healthier options for right livelihood
are currently in RealTime fake-space.

Perpetual reinvestment
in racing automated death machines
is not investment in peace.

Health is not purchased
by selling out your habitat’s
most nutritionally valuable assets.

Economic policy
at the bought-and-paid-for bidding
of bottom-line moneytaker corporations
is WinOrLose Evolutionary Political Science
reduced to its most cynical
monoculturing market value;
A political prostitution of mindbodies,
as are smoke-filling climate pathology backrooms
that call LoseInvestment To LoseInfestment
anti-ecological economic degenerative denialism
as if patriotic “manifest sacred EmpireBuilding destiny.”

Cowardice and mendacity
reduce healthcare giving and receiving optimization values
in bad religious or atheistic faith
believing this denialist-nihilist direction
is HellFire retributive EarthJustice inevitable.

While refusing to notice
this inevitability
assumes cowards
invest in supremacist assumptions
about small ego-centric
manifest destiny,

Whether manifest by sacred scripture
or patriarchal WesternWhite Supremacists,
fools and prostitutes
thwarting internal capacities
to read with RightBrain Hearts,
threatened most by your own violent absence
of integrity.

Mendacity against Earth’s multiculturing Peace,
against restoring economically cooperative justice,
and calling out against sacred co-redemption
for all species
still trying to breathe our best
therapies without trauma.

I believe issues of monoculturing ego-identity
mostly suffer from not being polyculturally envisioned enough.

Healthy PeaceCircle PermaCultural Design
co-mentors thought

and co-witnessing without

I believe colonization
retributively pre-judges
and condemns,
overly impresses colonizer missionary zeal
against FirstNation and aboriginal forms and functions
of restorative justice principles shared
sacred reconciliatory nature-spirituality,
as if reconciliation cooperative economics
and Win-Win politics
were not also formed and functioned

PermaCulturing ReStorational Design
provides a conceptual Win-Win framework

I believe transitional ecojustice
both follows pathology and precedes growing health,
large scale nutritional Left-Right ego-eco dominant conflicts
andLeftBrain dominant anthro-centric overshoot
of balancing Western dualistic SacredWords of Grace
with Eastern nondualist
bilateral and polypathic
Gaian-Principled Karma.

Our global vocation
is to end our addiction to

and not so much mere mendaciously patriarchally-owned

and criminalizing war-mongering,

Steering clear of anti-ecological waste

Memes Revolve EcoPolitical Health History

I recently revisited a fruitful redundancy conversation between Richard Dawkins’ on ‘memes,’ conjoined with Spiral Dynamics, by Don Edward Beck and Christopher Cowan. During this reread, I noticed connections between Clare Graves’ evolving spirals, Julian Jaynes ethological theory of bicameral mindbody development, perhaps the more nutritional behavioral-neural roots of Positive Psychology.  Mapping all these together as one interdependent ecopolitical evolutionary empowerment of ecoconscious Right with ecologically language and deductive Left, Spiral Dynamics looks both newly refined, but also disturbingly redundant of Buckminster Fuller’s Synergy, informed by William Thurston’s and Gregori Perelman’s (et. al., Group Theorists) 4 prime bilateral dimensions of spacetime and  (0) soul dipolar co-arising theorems, respectively.

However, the esoteric octave an fractal rhythms of nature and math beg for more immediate Climate Health and Earth Rights economic, ecological, and political empowerment. In Spiral Dynamics speak: How do we fast-forward into Turquoise, the land of Milk and Honey Enlightenment of (0) Zen Interdependence, balancing holonic empty-null universally diastatic sets of memes, or nomials, binomials, polynomials, health regenerative trends, refining less economic-ecologic-political-social-cultural-psychological-biological pathology, as we progress, develop, more maturely optimize our regenerative-integrative polypathic DNA/RNA  folding/unfolding climate structures.

Memes, like genes, are regenerative, self/other nondual replicating nutritional patterns. In Buckminster Fuller’s terminology, genes are about convex-physical universe, while memes are their concave-metaphysical ecopolitical-ecological co-arising nonduality. Genes produce physical things that can be nouned, labeled, nomialed. Memes produce metaphysical relationships of  health-regenerate power-with cooperation and/or power-over competitive monoculturing pathologies of nutritional imbalance, climate imbalance, landscape and paradigmatic relational imbalance, cognitive-affective dissonance. These operate at the individual, species, and meta-cultural interdependent exterior ecopolitical climate levels of endo/ecto-symbiotic evolution, within as without, concave metaphysical as convex physical ecologies of mindbodies.

Memes have integrative viral reproductive potential for health and for appositionally bilateral pathologies, not enough, too much, too soon, too late for resonantly redundant mapping onto global ecoconsciousness, co-empathic trust/distrust—confluence of exegetically etched abundant light between dualdark extremes of either-or LeftBrain dominance. Both interdependent developmental stages of LeftBrain development, and language-empty Elder Right hemispheres together dipolar co-arise Turquoising/UltraViolet climate health balance.

In previous selective readings from Beck and Cowan’s Spiral Dynamics, I had skipped (pp. 30-33) “Genes and Memes: Circuit Riders on the DNA.” No such bad luck this time. What follows is direct quote, with all my handwritten notes inserted in brackets, drawing in the larger ecopolitical-ecological climate health map drawn with Jaynes, and Fuller, and Bateson, and Thomas Kuhn evolutionary influences.

“[W]hat biochemical genes are to the DNA [thermodynamic balance prime relational fractal-function], memes are to our psycho-[eco]cultural ‘DNA.’ Genes are the information [and exforming] units of our physical nature derived from genetic contributions of mom and dad and properties inherited from our species [borrowing phylogenic properties from even older species,

borrowing functional digestive/nutritional health v pathology ecopolitical properties from even older plant species, spaces and places in time both regenerative and decomposing into bilateral past/future cause/effect encoding meme-ories]. Memes are born, Csikszentimihalyi notes, ‘when the human nervous system reacts to [learns from] an experience.’ (Evolving Self, p. 120) They are the information [exformation storage and labels, icons and ionic-bionic function] units in our collective consciousness and transport their [health/pathology sensory climate/chemistry] views across our [ecoconscious co-identified co-empathic] minds [with still-learning bodies].”


EcoPolitics of Psychologically Healthy Climates

If you don’t like the look or taste or smell of an Old Overly-Competitive Climate, then notice how it is slowly and intricately evolving into and toward dipolar abundance as a Revolutionary New EcoPolitical System, hopefully and empathically more trustingly and faithfully cooperative.  (A very loose paraphrase of Buckminster Fuller on great transitioning between old and new systems as  information-ing networks, and cooperatively developing ecopolitical climates.)

To love, agapic and/or erotic,
is a positive economic-political relational choice
to trust whomever
and whatever
is our Other right now
with our open caring empathy,
even when we may feel like withdrawing
into our suffering,
repressed concerns of mistrust and dissonance,
because we have faith
that not only is this choice to integratively love,
to pay love forward,
how we define doing our ecopolitical and ecological best,
but also because we trust from prior experience
this is most likely to facilitate Others
doing their best as well.

Circles of affection and disaffection are both viral,
but only one is viciously so,
Both positive and negative psyches unveil viscous potential,
but only one tends toward sustained reiterative communication
in kind,
the other viscosity trends toward unkind, active distrust,
eventually hatred,
also a learned ecopolitical choice, at one time,
over several habitual and then hypnotizing times.

When this becomes most interesting for me
when I turn from thinking of Other as a person
or a group of people
or a set of people
or the human natural-languaged species,
and think, instead of Other as a member of some other organic species,
including those with root systems,
including coral reefs and tidal barriers,
or even other natural Black Hole environments and gestalts,
networking mandalas of seas
and mountain trails
throughout the changing of each season,
where love is my ubiquitously obvious and natural default,
not so much feeling like a choice,
but like what I have known as good and healthy and beautiful,
occasionally interrupted by pests.

Yet, even noticing whiney mosquitoes
and buzzing icky biting flies,
short of a horde swarming all about paranoid me,
is often cause for bittersweet slaps and swats
and imaginary battles between David and Goliath,
with me cast as the benignly-intended Monster Giant,
merely out to protect my own skin
regardless of mortal consequences
and risks
and ecopolitical opportunities
of Other,
smashed to bits.

When my days become overly clogged with strictly human discourse,
when human nature monopolizes my monoculturish time,
my symbol seems to be that of a molting snake,
awakening to a new but uncertain skin each dewy morning,
a somewhat different identity
than those accumulated through all my dreamy/nightmare yesterdays.

But, when I recreate outdoors
in and with and of more virginal embryonic Earthy nature,
then my icon becomes an inviting hummingbird,
always curiously flying about seeking and sending succulent rapture,
far too fast and urgently blissful for noticing,
much less slitherally eating, those pesky mosquitoes.

Inviting co-empathic trust
Doing my best to follow
our Golden Rule,
for and of and with me
and my Elders
and our kids.

Inviting empathic cooperatively-invested trust
is to invite a climate of informed
kosmic risks and opportunities
usually small yet sometimes Great Transitions
of Grace as Love as Karma as Positive Psychology
as a healthy regenerative ecopolitical gestalt,
natural-spiritual dipolar co-arising
Tao-BiCameral Universe
of Snakes greeting Hummingbirds
and notnot dialectal vice-viral-versa.

Our nature-spirit Information System is optimally comprehended  through analogically transliterating the Ecology of Physical Material Values through the PermaCultured [permanently encultured] Gratitude-Values lens of Yang/Yin Balanced RE-ligious Information Codex: The Golden Rule and the Golden Ratio are restatements of +/-.50%Yang Self-Individuation = -.50%Yin Not-Polynomial “Other” Identity without  excluding Boundary [heuristically assumed to be infinitely inclusive]/2 =  0-soul Vertex/Vortex. (See Buckminster Fuller, Gregori Perelman, and Laotse).


First Stage: Urgent Need for a Climatic Trend Reversal AND Grateful-Mindful Leadership


The most gratifying attribute of cyclical and self-reproducing Living Systems is their permanence, their lack of ending. Their greatest weakness is the reverse view; there is no place in particular to begin to tell their story.


Connecticut is in disarray. Faith in the future evaporates with the aquifer, and healthy air and soil and lives. The sense of urgency, not for more random change, but for socio-economic and ecological transformation, emergently grows toward its own ominous conclusion; Business As Usual is dying.


The voluntary, and sometimes involuntary, exodus of the Millennial Generation from our places of formation–schools, temples, churches, farms, skilled labor guilds, extended families and small villages—leads to a healthy heuristic assumption that our need for urgency is sufficiently tilted toward a new “highest and best use” Search status.  As an emergent post-millennial community of (0)-Carbon Footprint Faith, perhaps we are ready to re-link (re-ligion) our PermaCultured Golden Rule/Ratio Traditions to our Left-Brain’s favorite child, Deductive Scientific Method.


The literature on organizing improvement within faith communities (and the term faithless community appears oxymoronic to anyone who has ever tried to live in the semblance of a sane community, so perhaps we can simply agree that any assembly of people deserving the appellation community also deserves to be thought of as a “faith community”) redundantly emphasizes two necessary ingredients for successful change, urgency and mindful-grateful leadership; leadership quality that is itself openly and inclusively responsive to constituents. While some emphasize urgency over effective leadership (Schaller, Macy and Johnstone, Gershon, Kotter) and others appear to emphasize  effective leadership over sense of urgency (McNeal, Bass, Schwarz, Dale, Atlee), probably we all agree that having both is optimal, and presumably necessary to sustain community spirit for revival into perpetuity.


The proposed D. Min. project topic, “Intentional ReGenesis: A Case Study in PermaCultured Youth Sustainability through EcoMinistry Formation,” is metrically and naturally rooted in Buckminster Fuller’s Theory of Regenerativity. However, it is spiritually and normatively rooted in an elaborate polycultural map. On this map, the Dalai Lama’s definition of compassion will point toward a collective sense of urgency to relieve shared suffering. Our Polyculture Map also uses the Dalai Lama’s definition of mindfulness as the necessary avenue toward an effective leadership of prehensile, enthymematic, and diastatically engorged gratitude.


Fuller’s Metaphysical metrics and predictions regarding “an eternally changeless definition of all understanding,” translated into Taoist, Buddhist, and Trinitarian terminology, offer us the heuristic assumption that the most regeneratively balanced ecology is the one that is most sustainable and resilient through transformative change. We will define this Prime Relationship Balance as:

Compassionate suffering Yin (purgative awareness) = -0 Prime-Linear Appositional Information about urgent disvalue (Ex-Formative sociopathology beliefs), AND

Mind/grate-ful mutual leadership Yang (sublimation is defined as mutual-exegetical synergetic understanding) = +1.00% Prime Binary Information System Value

In other words: Greatest Effect (Yang+e) with Least Effort (Yin-e) Balances PermaCulturally when assets/strengths are recognized as gratuitous resources to overcome our current socioeconomic pathology, or weakness. This is a Yang/Yin holistic feminist-inclusively-balanced teleological ecology.

When Yang and Yin levels within any one ecosystem, or community, are in balance, then we have an optimal environment for self-perpetuating and sustaining (regenerative) Deep Growth.  Harmonious Tao-Centered trends facilitate multi-species’ (and multi-religious Traditions’) mutual nourishment, health, and well-being. Permaculture Design and Positive Deviance (PD) principles provide a ubiquitous and deep learning ecology through the development of language steeped in natural system metaphor, metric-numeric reiterative system-pattern development, and feminist/holistic therapeutic communication paradigms (David Abram, Julian Jaynes, Laura S. Brown, Miriam Therese Winter).

Second Stage: Cooperative Symbiotic Growth v. Competitive Linear Progress Myths

The literature on effective models for managing sustainable development includes some diversity of thought about how to best measure success. Are we about the business of growing in size, perpetually, across time, continuing to grow in numbers until the individual community, or paradigm, or belief system, or language, or species has created a monoculture? This sounds uncomfortably akin to Dr. Seuss’s parable of The Lorax. Alarmingly rapid changes in climate are teaching us that this way of defining human success points toward its own ultimate demise, bringing down most of our other-species allies with us. Basic laws of thermodynamic balance remind us that if the resources we expend outweigh the resources we take in on a sustained basis, then entropy describes our future. Our community’s most sustainable growth with least dissonance to the larger ecology may best be informed by a Deep Learning read of Fletcher Peacock’s Water the Flowers, Not the Weeds.

Much of the literature on growth of communities places more emphasis on qualitative measurements of success, or effectiveness. We might think of these outcomes as the slow, natural, rooting growth toward depth; becoming embedded in sustainable root networks of diversity and mutual enrichment (Dale, McNeal, Schwarz, Macy and Johnstone). To grow as a person of faith is to grow as a mutual minister embedded in a polyculture of EcoMinistry (Eco conjoins Economy and Ecology). Effective leadership follows growth in compassion; compassion emerges through the mutuality of cooperative, mindful, grateful development and stewardship. This natural systems analogical paradigm lies at the heart of Fuller’s Metaphysics of gratitude, belonging to the Commons, Spaceship Earth, (rather than materialistic reductionism, the memes of property and ownership), and the symbiotic, precessive, relationship-co-designing/desiring, trend of self-regenerative ecosystems.

Buckminster Fuller was  interested, in his later years, in a Theory of Regenerativity. In his Synergetics and Synergetics 2 (1975, 1979), especially Synergetics 2, he may have anticipated Gregori Perelman’s proof of the soul conjecture (1994) in Mathematics’ Group Theory, assuming n-dimensional symmetric, elliptic, structural boundaries-as-Vertex/Vortex Janus-faced Relationship. Hierarchically staged (folding and unfolding) relationships in a 0-soul Core Vertex Universe are isomorphic, and therefore mutually holonic.

It is precisely this symmetrical/appositional Information Codex as normative that may have connected, for Fuller, with the issue of Special Case Information Systems as the land of Physics. Fuller defines our Whole Systems Universe as: “the integral of all metaphysical and physical phenomena.” (1075.22, 1979)  Universe as a mental place of comprehended relationship AND the Exterior Landscape of physical/natural thermodynamic laws, AND an iterative conversation of mutual teaching-learning. He summarizes the metric and rhythmic significance of Einstein’s, and his own, prehensile attraction toward an optimally satisfying Universal Field Theory as

Whereas the physical disintegrates entropically to a limit of velocity and disorder, the metaphysically operative mind displays a reverse pattern to that of physical entropy [ e.g. Not-Polynomial Time and Space mental-universe only; exclusive of Physical phenomena], wherewith to define lastingly the mind seeks the orderliness of the principles that are discovered.  As the human definitions can never be perfect [analogically holonic], the metaphysical mind of humans can only amplify and simplify the human statement of the comprehensive orderliness discovered and periodically reconfirmed by further experiences. (1052.60, 1979)


Third Stage: What is comprehensible (Polynomial Information-P) is appositional to what is proven to be Not-Polynomial Information-NP (confirmed not-real value).

Fuller believed that Polynomial Time and Space enjoy a self-perpetuating timeless P=NP equity balance. Information develops in ways that are normatively analogous to a Taoist description of Yang = +100% of Universal Natural Energy System and Yin = (-)100% of Universal Metaphysical System. Natural (Physical) systems thereby form the normative boundaries for (0) Balanced universal information system hierarchical-holonic structure.

Stored awareness of natural law boundaries within organic systems is Codex. Information Codex is bound by dimensional binary Information Balance structure, or staging, constraints of sequence and pattern, that we again discover in William Thurston’s 8-possible Prime Universes–spatial and/or temporal–in Group Theory. This Codex assumes that Polynomial Space/Time is indeed reversely equivalent to Not-Polynomial Metaphysical-Mental Codex Place/Moment Metric Systems. When that underlying assumption is supported and celebrated by our bicameral humanity, then Earth and her inhabitants improve our teleological pilgrimage trajectory toward consonant/dissonant abundant balance. Faith and hope flourish in a 4-Based Deep Econometric-Ecology, and blossom through Original Instruction Code to resist not-thriving, lack of string-resilience, increasing Problems of Incommensurability, in a bionic-binary-balanced In-forming Trans-Analogizing Metric/Linguistic Communication System.

Fuller often notes that the precessive/recessive patterns of space/time are redundantly expressed in the basic organic and sub-atomic structures of natural energy systems. Fuller’s Figure 203.09 (1975) predicts the underlying Codex expressed in the Higgs Boson, the tetrahedral 4-Staged structure of logic and trigonometry, laws of thermodynamic balance, analogy, communication, organic system regeneration (the life/death/fertilization/new-generation cycles of plants, and the 4-Season Earth-Sun Cycle Rotation,  for example), RNA, octaves, and double-bind-fractals.

Fourth Stage: Aha! Insight and Fractal Synergetic Rhythm Metrics

It is interesting to speculate that Fuller may have, at least implicitly, predicted that a Millennial Generation would PermaCulturally become aware of the implications of his Theory of ReGenerativity. Eventually, when the springtime of  human faith becomes ripe for Regenesis, we might find a successful resolution of Einstein’s pilgrimage of only relative-success, where P and NP remain winterized as not necessarily symmetrical; yet we hope they reflect Tao.

Earth, air, water, and bio-systems are overheating and moving toward entropic loss of Information organizing capacity, which will reverse after political, economic, and religious leaders recognize the abundant comprehensive power of  (0) Balanced In/Ex-Formation as both normatively and metrically balanced.[1] In other words, if it were not true that Polynomial equals Not-Polynomial Information in reverse linear, hierarchical, and fractal-staged Prime Relationship sequence, then human comprehension would not be possible.  When we comprehend (Fuller’s parallel to the Dalai Lama’s universal “mindfulness”)  that Not-Polynomial Ex-Formation, in any (0) soul Prime Rooted Information Universe, equals (-)100% of Polynomial Deductive Logic Information pattern sequence, and rhythm, humanly cognizable in the eternal/permanent inductive moment.

Fuller provides us with a reverse linear-time rhythmic projection toward our immediate Aha! Experience in Figure 1130.24, pp. 452-3, in which the Second Millennial Generation rather miraculously, maybe even heroically, embraces the fundamental laws of thermodynamically balanced gratitude, ethically and naturally and spiritually, normatively and inductively, even synaptically. An ergetic un-forming, unfolding, abundantly diastatic retrovirus reveals her “anti-matter” Not-Self=NP. Discovering her as the shy, virginal Yin Muse of GratitudeInfused Creative Synergy, the feminist, our shared Right-Hemisphere reveals -.50% of the Original Instruction Codex soul; it is Self optimizing to do no harm to Other. Yang/Yin ReGenerative dynamic equilibrium revolves a taproot back to our First Millennium’s Golden Rule, Ratio, and Elixir. Individuated-Self is to Other as Other has always been to our We-Self RNA Community String, Story, Song.

To comprehend the Commons as we would have the Commons sustainably communicate with Humans (certainly including Self), is to optimize nutritional and economic abundance, depth, and wisdom. The Commons, including metaphysically encultured pilgrimage Traditions back to our Original Instruction, teaches our teleological mission to ReGenerate Deep Ecology.


Stage Five: TrimTab Primary Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) Principle of Greatest Effect for Least Effort: adhere to Golden Rule/Ratio

As mystics, polymaths, artists, architects, have been noticing from earliest shamanic proto-history to present, the greatest effect for least effort  fundamental design principle is a radically inclusive Golden Rule because we are all in this mess together (Macy and Johnstone). We literally and figuratively, normatively and metrically, nutritionally and bionically, naturally and spiritually, metaphysically and physically, are what we have absorbed from our progenitors; we absorb what is already potentiated (gratuitously prehensile, compelling, co-attracting) in the next Holonic Place/Moment.  When our Bicameral Species globally comprehends our eisegetical Internal Landscape of Graced Ecology and exegetical External Landscape are mutually reiterative[2], then Fuller predicts (and perhaps Teilhard de Chardin) a Cosmic Aha! Event. This diastatic cultural event follows the dramatic comprehension of sustainable and equitable abundance through balanced gratitude-mindfulness. Our mutual suffering emerges as the emphatic and obvious reverse of our optimized confluent wisdom. Socioeconomic pathology conjoins socioecological therapy.

Wisdom, then, recommends mutually other-optimizing intent and commitment to cooperate socioeconomically and ecologically with the Commons (these are Win-Win Game Theory strategies for outcome optimization), which is the Explicate-Order (David Bohm)  Exterior Landscape of our diverse polycultures, nutrient streams, communication systems. Grace-filled cooperative intent and practice evolves from our universally shared PrimeRoot Zero; a Deep Learning mutually-sustaining Core Vertex, liminally co-circumscribing a Feminist-Octave 4-Based Vortex.

We become abundantly sufficient, EcoMinistry balanced, when we practice our Species’ vocational trajectory back to the nutrient communication strings rejoining us to a future globally inclusive Gold-Standard Polyculture. This long-range, 8-generation, Original Instruction is now emerging through the moment-to-moment recognition of ourselves in grateful relation with Others, and SacredOther as the absorbed nutrients that In-Form “We-Self” identity.


Stage Six: EcoMinister as Dynamic We/Me Win-Win Facilitator

Christian Schwarz chooses empowering facilitative leaders as the first of his eight necessary qualities for Natural Church Development optimization. “These pastors equip, support, motivate, and mentor individuals,”…. “They do not use lay workers as ‘helpers’.” (p. 24) This is leadership operating in a cooperative transaction economy, and ecology. Capitalists and socialists, government regulators and “free” enterprise advocates alike need not apply for the role of Reverse-Millennial ReGenesis leader. Empowerment optimizes as grateful cooperation becomes equilateral, mutually initiated and received. This is a highly mindful and enriching cooperative value exchange—equal value for equal value. Enterprise is never free; there are always energy transfers in any endeavor, any change, movement, vocation, mission, business. Profit that only works one way is a distorted view; it lacks value-balance.

Leaders who realize their own empowerment by empowering others experience how the “all by itself” [TrimTab-post synergetic “gift” Yields derived from yoking GreatestEffect-TherapyStrength with LeastEffort-Pathology] principle contributes to growth. (p. 25)

Mutually empowering iterative loops are the economic-ecologists Positive Deviance way of advocating the benefits of designed-inclusion for optimizing cooperative transactions. Appreciative Inquiry (rooted in hope of mutual gratitude) within an intentionally diverse polyculture, is more likely to result in a long-term sustainably successful mutual-profit balance, than operating within a monocultural ecosystem. Positive Deviance selects for indigenous assets in response to urgent, and collectively shared, eco-pathologies. Cooperative value transfers intend win-win symbiotic value optimization—the emergent Ecology of Gratuitous/Gift all by itself Positively Deviant Evolution. This is the kind of reality that sounds like our most abundant purpose is to grow in mutual compassion and gratefully inclusive mindfulness, of “WeSelf” co-prehensile Awareness. The fruits of compassion are cooperative-oriented transactions, expressions of significant mutual gratitude relationships.

Schwarz further observes that empowering sense-builders appreciate bipolar balance between “goal” and “relationship” orientations. In his theological paradigm, too many of us are either imbalanced toward a technocratic Me-faith (YangSpirit) or a spiritualistic We-hope(YinSpirit).  It is the adept religious leader who is able to consistently self-and-other empower, keeping both her faith-in-self-optimization focus, and hope-for-prime-relationship development, in equipoised balance.

Our polymathic ReGenesis EcoMinister maintains an internal and external holonic landscape that compassionately reflects gratitude for self as part of other, through hope for other as part of self; a combination of the Golden Rule and the enthymematic solidarity-awareness that “we are all, most-gratefully, in this together.”  This is a solidarity that echoes the sacramental marriage bond, having a double-bind synergetic intent—but applied universally, radically, inclusively, embracing all species and all of nature.

Our millennial Positive Deviance facilitator transliterates the symbol-patterns within and between self and other during an inclusive pilgrimage toward a mutually re-discovered Universe of ultimate co-passion. This sounds like a good love thing. But, is this theology supported by what we discover in natural patterns of healthy development? This, after all, is the infrastructural analogy behind Schwarz’s thesis; we are an In-formation Bicamerally-Coded Language-string-reiteration Species of perpetually reincarnating nature-Events. He implies that  spiritual and/or metaphysical information is morphologically comprehended through recognition of incarnated natural elements, confluent and dissonant symbols, value exchanges, and their systemic relationship patterns, development sequences and stages. These natural elements are in dynamic evolutionary relationship, so we can notice nature’s patterns to improve understanding of our regenerating Universe, and perhaps vice versa.


Stage Seven: Deep-Rooting PermaCultured EcoMinistry

The ReGenesis Project vision is that we are already an emergent Species of quasi-cooperative EcoMinister wanna-be’s. This Turning Point Generation faces a uniquely critical opportunity and is potentiated for this socioeco-equity transitional moment. Our hypothesis is that grace-filled apprehension toward a holistic teleological self- and world-view is more prominent within the Reverse-Bi-Millennial-ErgeticCusp Generation, and their PermaCultured RetroPositive Deviant elders. Further, our Project goal is to accelerate and democratize this Deep Grace/Gratitude Ecology through a variety of Dynamic Facilitation interreligious and secular youth leadership development venues. If we model a regenerative, dynamically inclusive process of Appreciative Inquiry, then the medium of dialogue will naturally revolve toward a mutually-held plan for regenerative Self-People-Earth development, with diverse paradigmatic applications—economics, creative design information technology, neighborhood revitalization, holistic health care, Time/Space v. Moment/Place autistic bipolar-affective dissonance therapy, Deep Learning pedagogy, green technology development toward 0 carbon footprint, improved non-violent communication practice, child, youth, and family well-being CQI policy reform, and public discernment/dialogue choice-making.

The Positive Deviance (PD) concept is based on the observation that in every community or organization there are a few individuals or groups whose uncommon but successful behaviors and strategies have enabled them to find better solutions to problems than their neighbors who face the same challenges and barriers and have access to [the] same resources.


The PD approach is a problem solving, asset-based approach grounded in the fact that communities have assets or resources they haven’t tapped. 

Basic Field Guide to the Positive Deviance Approach, http://www.positivedeviance.org


Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a method for studying and changing social systems (groups, organizations, communities) that advocates collective inquiry into the best of what is in order to imagine what could be, followed by collective design of a desired future state that is compelling and thus, does not require the use of incentives, coercion or persuasion for planned change to occur.

Gervase R. Bushe, “Appreciative Inquiry,” http://www.wikipedia.org


Both Appreciative Inquiry and Positive Deviance are community-improvement oriented systems models. Both easily fall within the Interior and Exterior Landscape vision of Permaculture Design, as well as Positive Psychology, and Fuller’s Holistic Teleology. AI and PD (which we will stipulate as a symbol for both Positive Deviance and Permaculture Design) actively search for the strengths currently indigenous to the community, or polyculture, to optimize these untapped  resources for sustainable Continuous Quality Improvement. This is precisely what Christian Schwarz recommends to strategically bolster the faith community’s greatest weakness. Respond to system weakness by strategically focusing BusinessAsUsual- Deviant strength-nutrient out-lyers.

Achieving the greatest effect with the least effort is, perhaps, the prime principle of Permaculture Design. Designing for synergetic development by intentionally working with natural systemic assets, positive deviance, is efficient, and the most sustainable option among those available at any given time.  Appreciate Inquiry and Dynamic Facilitation are public dialogue technologies designed to include affected, effected, and infected constituencies as diversely as possible in discovering the Positively Deviant resources already indigenous to the choice-making community.  These PD resources are the dialogue population’s most under-employed, most richly-potentiated, asset toward a consensus solution of value. Consensus is limited only by the sufficiency of listening deeply to the diversity within the polyculture.   The more diversity within the active polyculture, dynamically drawn-into the effective dialogue environment, the more sustainable the solution—rather like adding tangy yogurt to warm milk, to diastatically regenerate the milk into an optimized population of yogurt.

Schwarz (logically confluent with Fuller, and Macy and Johnstone) refers to the economy of grace, or gratitude, as the all by itself principle; the emergent outcome of system regeneration. Abundant fruition, or fertility, of a system is not only greatest effect with least effort, it is also the evidence of what Buckminster Fuller calls emergent precession. Metaphysical precessions and all natural precession trending systems comprehend, or culminate, in a fractal moment of regenerative intent, given sufficient urgency and an adroitly facilitated Appreciate Inquiry learning culture. Precession is positive trend toward syntropy, synergy, forming symbiotic, confluent, harmoniously intricate networks of patterned relationship. Positive Deviance may be what natural teleologists recognize as Original Meaning or Golden Rule-Original Instruction.  Regardless, the taproot of comprehension brings further nourishment to the Original Meaning of enthymematic gratitude—now, also the all by itself intuitive effects of grace, or teleological gift, bounty, extra, optimized abundance within any system, paradigm, universe. Grace is what creation adds to learning; new identity adds to authentic self-articulation; care-giving mutual intent adds to the norms of belonging and nutrition and therapeutic practice (see Brown).

A great deal of Fuller systems comprehension turns (literally and figuratively) on understanding his binary map for transliteration between the Interior Landscape (Metaphysical Universe) and Exterior Landscape (Physical Universe).

System insideness and outsideness means two congruent, concave-convex systems, four corner-defining ins, and their four opposite windows through which the omnidirectional out nothingness is revealed. The eight were there all the time. The fourness of self and the fourness of otherness = comprehension. Comprehension involves tuned-in octave resonance as well as omnidirectional and local angular integrity. (268.02, 1979)


Systems are aggregates of four or more critically contiguous relevant events having neither solidity nor surface or linear continuity. Events are systemic. (400.26, 1975)


PD ReGenesis, whether Physical or Metaphysical, is trending toward better balance, toward both increased consonance and her Non-Polynomial Corollary, decreased dissonance.

M. T. Winter, p.167, 2009, with some analogically creative liberties



This Youth ReGenesis EcoMinistry D. Min. Project begins with two Core Teams: an Interior Landscape (Metaphysics/Math) Team and an Exterior Landscape (Physical/Ecology) Team.

Both Teams will follow a Deep Learning path that explores Synergetics, Positive Deviance, Appreciative Inquiry, Non-Violent Communication, and Permaculture Design Principles. A second generation of Youth-led Teams will follow the combined work of these Core Teams, folding core findings into additional religious spirit- and nature-based languages and paradigms. For example, in what ways do the Eastern meaning and context of gratitude v. material objectification parallel (and appear dissonant with) the Abrahamic Myth-ecology of grace v. law, female v. male, Yin v. Yang, Wisdom v. Word, GraceCreation v. Structured Codex balance-issues?

How might these confluence/dissonance trends be further analogically enriched, or questioned, by Fuller’s understanding of ergetic, gravitational, function within a dynamically repercussive Metaphysical/Physical, recessive/precessive, implicated/explicated, Ex-formed/In-formation, NotPolynomial/Polynomial Space and Time Universe?

What, if anything, does the ReGenesis of Self Care, People Care, and Earth Care as 3 sides of a (0) soul Center have to do with my WeSelf Individuation, our WeSelf EcoMinistry intentionally inclusive vocation toward positive gratitude-nutrition-thriving cooperative outcomes, and my Natural HomePresence [Physically In-carnated] future?

The Metaphysics/Math Team, from secular and religious schools, and youth groups, will explore the hypothesis:

The universe is optimally comprehensible, and valued, when (0) Soul Vectored, thermodynamically and informationally equipoised.

Fuller’s geometry, mapped onto the Group Theory work of William Thurston and Gregori Perelman, defines (0), soul, vector, universe, and regenerative system.

CQI Standards: Report responds to the Clay Math Institute’s Challenge: Does Polynomial equal Not-Polynomial?

2.  The Exterior Landscape Team will explore a teleological hypothesis, from http://www.neweconomicsnetwork.org:

The purpose of an economic system is to organize human activities in ways that support healthy and resilient…ecosystems for both present and future generations.

If both hypotheses 1 and 2 are True, then the 1st hypothesis may work as an analogical definition of :

•           integral mindfulness, personally, bio-ethically, and as a species; Beyond Religion, Dalai Lama;

  • an eternally changeless definition of all understanding; B. Fuller;

•           the Tao of Yang/Yin self-perpetuating and –defining Prime Relationship (0); Taoism;

•           the regenerative development of a Deep Learning Ecology, in Permaculture Design and Positive Deviance design/planning practice;

•           a new human species awareness of our universally recycled nature’s soul as Prime Relationship (0) = E/e² (Fuller, Euler) and 1/0 = Yang/Yin = P/NP = Me Individual-CoreVertex/We Identity-CoreVortex.


•           If Fuller’s belief that a comprehended metaphysical infrastructure, meeting his optimized TrimTab design specifications, is correct,

•           If the Youth ReGenesis Project is able to seed that comprehension through publishing a satisfactory response to the Clay Millennium Math Problem of  Polynomial Versus Not-Polynomial equity conjectural proof,

•           If Fuller’s Theory of Regeneration can be comprehended accurately as a (0) Soul Core-Vector Conjecture, then both Fuller and Stephen Cook predict globally transformative implications.

Then, Locally:

  • At least $1 million in cash award from the Clay Math Institute, to be reinvested in sustainability outcomes, potentially leading to $10 million in annual transaction values within 5 years, and $100 million flowing through a global PD cooperative financial investment stream, within 10 years.
  • Extensive lawn to organic edible landscape conversions; urban bicycle/pedestrian transportation infrastructure.
  • Sustainable and resilient, robust, ReGenesis Permaculture Design/Positive Deviance cooperative industry, vocations, formational and well-being strategies, financial support, regenerative evolution.

And Globally:

  • More dancing in circles; less marching in squares.
  • Holonic ReEco-Ligion: (0) Soul Teleological Original Gold Value Standard of PermaCultured Metaphysics and Mythology
  • Symbiotic Deductive/Inductive Deep Creative Learning Ecology of Gratitude/Grace
  • Unitarian Universalists embrace Buckminster Fuller in a more comprehensive way, and perhaps other religious traditions as well, the result of a universal field theory that conjoins (re-ligions) math, science, ethics, nature, communication, (+)in/(-)ex formation, and spirituality.
