He said s/he was a Permaculture Designer
of cooperative economies.
I asked him/her why I should care about designs
while I am still struggling through this day
when I, best case scenario,
to begin surviving yet another day
before night’s cold unrest.
So glad you asked
s/he seemed to say
without youthful presumption
of telling me what I already knew,
Permaculture Design is rooted in Game Theory,
for those more math and economic science inclined,
Defining our cooperatively-held
public and private
secular and sacred health outcomes
Through win/win projections
0/1 cooperative bilateral co-relational zone analysis.
Before I had a chance to mention
that this does not warmly resonate
for the 99% who could care less about theoretical
math and economic science,
For those more politically empowerment/disempowerment oriented,
Cooperative Permaculture Design
follows your/our most optimally resonant
Western dualism/Eastern elite/non-elite nondualism
balancing polypathic designs with polyphonic health/wealth synergy,
resilient either/or deductive thinking
AND resonant both/and bicameral inductive compassion therapy,
ego-internal as integral with eco-contextual.
While this, too, seemed far too abstract
for warm and inviting lunchtime conversation,
I asked if s/he might try again
about how this could possibly change our lives together.
This same economic and political health framework
can be applied to restoring social justice,
racial multicultural inclusiveness,
environmental Climate Justice
Negatively defined by
all that is equally not-not polycultural injustice;
a universal type of ego/eco double-binary restoration
of internal/external fairness
and socially health preferable
to win/lose retributive “justice”
Which can never produce win/win global green peace
cold unrestful tomorrow night.
While this still feels too much like tomorrow’s promise,
at best 2021 integrity of right mindbody prominent hindsight,
I still had not finished my thin slice
of dryly donated white vanilla cake,
so I stayed through final summary.
we mean cooperative integrity,
positively interdependent me/we relationship
and universally inclusive throughout spacetime
Designs composed of equivalently appreciated nutritional systems,
systemically democratic energy,
power, incoming and outgoing,
nutrients of mutually respirated respect,
Worthy of warm resonant lunchtime discussion
and afternoon implementation
and resilient/resonant dreams
of flying together
more than falling apart.
To this day
when I hear “climate”
I also hear polycultural atmosphere
economically and politically healthier
than monocultural attitude.
I’m sometimes still hungry
and feel homeless,
but now this is a cooperative hunger
and shared cold dry absence
of multigrain communion.
