GREENing Our Neighborhood

like Taoists
and Buddhists
and Hindus, etc.
Consider neighbors
extended and respected family,
ZeroZone Kin,
regardless of zone status
near or far,
regardless of species,
regardless of living
or gone
or not yet arrived.

Dear Neighbors,

I make no proud claims
of embracing a GREEN lifestyle,
making green integrity choices,
No claims of wise and sacred ecology
or even GREEN party membership.

as a Permaculture Designer
and as a hopefully therapeutic
more than helplessly threatening parent
of hurt children
becoming young adults
in a growing climate of pathology,
(great rational ecological-economic news services)
are among my healthier aspirations.

Permaculture Opera
speaks part of my journey
from our urban capital
often slighting our polluted Connecticut River
living water artery
of enculturing history

To this neighborhood
where the Yantic
and Shetucket Rivers
of Norwich
become one in the misnomered Thames River
whose mouth speaks of New London
where once fished Iroquois
blue herons,

I am interested in where these Rivers
speak from and for,
and where they are heading
and learn to listen on their banks
for their best resiliently ballasting interests
in where we have gone
and come from,
time’s nurturing ebb and co-arising flow,
and where humane nature
is healthy v pathology going,
regenerative v degenerative
cooperation v too competitive
WinWin v WinLose.

Perhaps some day in Norwich
and New London
and Groton
we may go and come back again by water taxis,
bicycle rickshaws
and tricycle grocery carts,
horses with and without buggies.

Bike and pedestrian only lanes
and downtown blocks
connecting GREEN EcoSchools
with organic community gardens
built by PositivEnergy Cooperatives
with co-invested political and economic nutritional leaders
who graduated from local EcoSchools
appropriate to Norwich’s diverse
health faces:

As Original river forest habitat
GREEN nature-spirit built environments
will allow,

As meadow greened and gardened,
grazed and harvested
as in our colonial era,

As Civil GREEN Rights and Elitist Wrongs
underground our freedom railroad
and civil war volunteerism
would expect respect
with cooperative gratitude,

As we restore our national health identity
after AntiGREENing of Vietnam
and MiddleEast
and Korea

So this copy of Permaculture Opera
is my signed gift to you,
inviting you to share this journey
if you neighborly will.

And, if you read
and care to speak further
about these pieces
or about a neighborhood
Permaculture Design Cooperative
or about restoring a therapeutic
Norwich ClimateHealth Cooperative
composed of those still in PositivEnergy Democracy School
and those who have grown out
long enough to know
we cannot continue

Here’s my email address,
my http://www.gdill52.com blogsite,
open to comments
WinWin dialogue,
cooperative skill development.

Speak with me,
invite me to listen
to what we might do better
than side-by-side


Trading Trees Into Timber

I see someone wants to trade
eight hundred year old trees
for timber.

not someone who knows how to listen
to WiseElders.

When these trees were mere seedlings,
they were already exploring how deep and rich
is Earth’s flowering flow
of nurturing rivers.

Most people in that ancient time
were monotonously sure
Earth is simply,
even evangelistically,

eight hundred years later
still clueless
how deep and rich
is Earth’s flowering flow
of multiculturing sacred time.


Redeeming Lost Nightmares

To begin each morning here with now
includes who we bicamerally are,
who we have Elder RightBrain been,
where and when our DNA-scripts
came from RNA-AnimaMundi divine whispers,
and who and when and where and why
we would most clearly appreciate investing in
our shared future on planet Earth,
this and every day.

We each face morningEast and eveningWest,
usually alone and silently,
and yet occasionally together
in good faith communities
and extending families
of positive intent.

Incarnation and discarnation
in a capital iconic culture
include all our assets and liabilities,
relationships and lack of relationships,
intentions and lack of intentions,
good and bad,
emotions and absence of caring,
depth and radiant possibilities of integrity,
emerging harmony,
resonance with EarthTribes.

If you could capitalize
all your assets and liabilities,
all your nutritional value and toxic disvalue,
all your [positive and negative energy potential,
what would you have?
Who would you have this with?
And what might you do together
that each of you would most like to become
not so much alone?

if you cannot capitalize
all your embodied assets and liabilities,
all your nutritional and toxic habitats,
all your relational environment’s energy potential,
then who are you?
How would you otherwise delineate
the limits of your LeftBrained Ego?

Our most sacred potential
may be non-violently explored
and non-predatively known
and cherished
as our Ego’s Highest Power
re-images PlanetEarth
sensed and felt and known
through our inherited
and lifetime experienced images,
reiterative relationships ebbing and swelling,
bilateral communications densing and thinning,
stereophonic polyphonic harmonic memories,
walked and talked in resonant full octaves of sight and sound,
preferring graceful dance and songs of SacredEarth.

We are bicameral energy of polypathic polynomials
surrounded in all four dimensions
of secular space and sacred bilateral time
through consciously intending WinWin positive choices
avoiding LoseLose pathology of Left against ElderRight dissonance.

Mundane Ego and Sacred WiseElder Right EcoRelationships
of Love
as also Positive Psychology
and Karma
and what Bucky Fuller defined,
and perhaps too densely refined,
as Synergy.

Synergy of Earth’s cooperative LeftBrain Convex
and DoubleBound DiPolar RightBrain Concave,
iconically Yang-Yin,
DNA-RNA spirals
of temporal revolutionary authorities,
care of and for WinWin choices
as cosmic health,

And LoseLose as Earth’s ParadiseLost
through EitherOr (0)Sum competition choices.

And WinLose evolutionary models
of monocultural AnthroMight Makes Right.
infinitely hopeless suboptimization
of all God’s Sacred Creation,
originally NotNot (0)Sum-Core-Soul of Earth’s
BlackHole AlphaPoint,
predicating DNA emergence from RNA intelligence,
rededicating Ego’s LeftBrain emergence
from EcoSystemic RightBrain’s WiseElder
energy democracy intent.

“Energy democracy”
says Denise Fairchild and Al Weinrub
in The Community Resilience Reader,
“represents a new social [restorative] justice paradigm.”

For some of us,
this is more RightBrain sacred nutrition of a HigherPower
and for some of us
more LeftBrain Ego’s mindbody energy
is just positive
or negative
or double negative double-binding ambivalence
equivalence in-between Polypathic
and NotNot Polyphonic.

if energy democracy,
whether secular or sacred or BothAnd WinWin,
points toward a revolutionary new ego-eco justice health paradigm,
then negative secularizing Energy Totalitarianism
represents commodification of Energy as EgoCapital Supremacy
and not really what we would want to call Business As Healthy Usual.

EitherOr presumptions of LeftBrain dominance
are biassed to tolerate injustices
of an evolutionary model with monoculturing aggression norms
and values,
ethics and RedBlood horror and terror aesthetics.

Yang EgoMight has become not only better
but also ecopolitically stronger
and over-nutritionally invested,
too big,
too robust
until overpowering Yin’s EcoSystemic Solidarity,
RightBrain’s sacred nutritional values
for ecopolitically and personally
and intimately cooperative EarthSoul Health,
flowing out from within.

Energy fascism,
totalitarian aspirations of AnthroCentric monoculturalism
is contrary to our notnot (0)Core primal relationships
rooted in Earth’s cooperative history of SacredEnergy Commons,
composed of many diversely polyculturing subclimates,
as healthier,
more sustainable,
with more integrity,
and more sacred,
and more LeftRight mindbody consciously resonant,
and more bilaterally (0)-Sum WinWin ecosystemically abundant,
and more Yang with Yin
RightBrain WiseElder Original Intent
of DNA’s regenerating phylogeny and homological unfolding
than Yang EgoCentrism’s constant EitherOr strategizing
toward ultimate LoseLose entropic final retributive
self-cannibalizing unjust ends
of an angry capital-sucking polarization
of might have become timeless Sacred Natural NurturingEnergy.

LeftBrain energy hubris overpowers
Elder RightYin-LeftYang Newer non-elite gratitude
co-arising dipolar rooting blossoms
of SecularLeft/SacredRight WinWin
Energy Democracy.


Reasons for Seasons

A question.


For now.
Subject to chain-reaction change.

As long as we’re clear
about our lack of restraining rules.

Quite so, dear.
I’m wondering about that line
“Jesus is the reason
for the Season.”
What was the reason
before JesusSeason?

I mean,
Joseph and Mary
and their parents,
What was their reason
for this Season?
Whatever they called early Winter
back in better
and perhaps somewhat cooler atmospheric days?

They had Hanukkah
I suppose.
But it was more of a political victory celebration
and I’m not sure if it was in December.

What about the Solstice
or fertility rights and wrongs
and other confusing
and often bloody industrious
things of that sort?

Solstice maybe.
But fertility and harvest thereof…
Well, doesn’t sound like the reason
for this Season.

Maybe the butchering and harvest part
if you’re in retail
within Christendom.

Or hospitality.

Speaking of hospitality,
didn’t that visit to Bethlehem
have something to do with an end of year inventory
or census
or something about adding things up
and planning for the future?

So the reason
for this Season
was death and taxes?

Maybe sales tax revenues.
They used to count productive heads.
Now we add up business profits
as Sacred Advent
anticipates income tax Season
with dread.

A very warming thought

I think we would do better
to sing
Jesus is A good reason
for the Season.

More of a traditional excuse
for blatant commercialism
and collecting taxes from poor people
for most of Christendom
wouldn’t you say?

You’re so cynical
in the morning.
And by evening

That’s right dear.
A range of cynical through comatose.

Which probably has something to do with this dark Solstice.

Another reason for Advent Season.

Another question comes to mind.

Of course, dear,
as we both knew,
your curiosity grows insatiable.

What if Gaia
is just another name
for Holy Spirit?

And Holy Spirit
was just another KingJames name
for Spiritus Mundi
of Greek nondualistic nature-spirit mystics
speaking with Rabbinical scholars
over two thousand years ago,
while Jesus listened?

What if a post-millennial
Second Transitional Coming
of Indra’s NetZero Polyphonic Age
was another way of feeling
CoMessianic Sacred Becoming
one Body of continuously Holy EnSpiriting Christendom.

as ethological reason
for CoMessianic Advent Seasons
gifting grace forward
through Matriarchal Gaian Mundi EnSpiritus.


Any good Jewish son,
in historical times and languages of Jesus
the Nazarene,
would know,
If a question of authentic interpretation of teaching,
of Original Intent
of a divine law or teaching,
a nature-spirit rule,
such as a WinWin Golden MultiCulturing Rule,
were to healthy co-arise,
It is a matter of unchanging exegetically orthodox Tradition,
that discerning authorities
turn to Rabbinical lines of the Teacher
in focal point of historical-cultural study.

It might, then, be important to Jesus the Nazarene evangelists
pf truly good ecopolitical news,
to remember Greek nature-mystic nondual philosophies
embraced by pre-industrialized,
AgrarianCentric Gaian EcoSystemic Philosophers
of natural-spiritual polypathic wisdom,

Listening and watching MotherEarth’s
spiraling Win-Win revolutions
and Win-Lose LeftBrain reactionary over-investment
in retributive justice
against egocentric hubris,
and older root degenerative messages

To Lose ecopolitically
predicts to Lose ecologically

and Sacred Wisdom Ways.


SecularMinds CoArising SacredHearts

In our Physics Departments
our most salient awareness
of those nature-spirit entities
most easily seen
and heard
and smelled
as animated and animating,
sometimes more,
sometimes less,
in our daily ritualistic lives
of solids
and liquids
and gases
and plasma
and bilateral neural pathways
of interdependent communication.

In our MetaPhysics Department,
still moldering behind neglected ivied walls,
emerges a nondual Universe of deductive Earth sciences
and inductive Paradise nurturing arts
expressing polypathic co-arising philosophies
rooted in ecological sensory experience
of the successfully regenerating Ages.

Even beings not yet seen
or heard
or still smelled as vibrantly animated,
and sometimes not so much,
more exegetically static Traditions,
defined through BusinessAsUsual LeftBrain dominance,
in fact are both becoming and unbecoming
if only at a rock-hard atomic 4D primal spacetime
Principle of Reverse notnot double-binding perception,
dreams inductively shared
across time as distant framed nutritional/toxic spaces.

We are multi-tiered cooperative nesting-unresting,
diverse natural-spiritual experientialists
following our sacred 4-dimensional SpaceTime
imaginary field of positive faith
reiteratively repeating across
and back reverting
bicameral minds
following inductive diastatic-diastolic valleyed heartbeats,
yin nurture-flows.

We are capable of empathizing with exterior look and feel,
interior sound and taste and touch
and nutritional v toxic patterns
of animated becoming-unbecoming threat.

Emerging together toward Left-Right cooperative diastatic Win-Win maturity,
post-millennial wisdom polypaths,
and yet also still deducing-reducing degenerative
LeftBrain dominant
ecopolitical bad-news trends.

This egosystemic inside empathy
aligns with ecosystemic outside co-animated empathy capacity,
exercised and disciplined toward harmonic,
resonant coherence,
Avoiding cognitive-affective
bilaterally dissonant
chronic malforming depressions
and critical climate and landscape dismays,

Harmony unfolds ego-mountains
and folds following dense-intense valleys of eco-values,
nutritional health-trails,
and refold revolutions thereby regenerate creolizing potential,
restorative views of profound integrity’s re-animating potential
of and for ecopolitical and personal and familial justice
within and without,
inside yin and outside yang,
co-animating presence
of SacredGaian Earth.

Does all animation matter?
Do each life and death matter?

To some
and for some
and for some regenerative v degenerative purposes,
these answers are Yes!,
or at least open to maybe yes,
rather than merely not animated yet
and also not any nature-spirit more.

Even a hypothetical Yes
to intentionally co-animate empathic faith
and for
and with
and from
all creations
and recreations,
and regenerations,
past through present toward future
could re-animate more positive karma
and karma-yogis,
and grateful CoRedeemers
as sacred WinWin ecopolitical Love
of shared EarthTribe Vocation.

CoAnimating Love creolizes Synergy ourselves,
reasonable, and yet also sacredly wondrous,
good faith
in positive hope
for Paradise MultiCulturing Loves.

Radically revolutionary democratic Loves
not yet fully animated here and nationalistic
and egotistic
and anthropocentric now,

Each ego identity,
whether of busy bee
or slacker sloth,
recreates its uniquely sacred eco-Other,
as mutually capable of Win-Win intentional experience
and memory

Better Climate Questions

It has been said
There is no bad question
asked with cooperative integrity.

While those asked with competing disintegrity,
are not really questions at all.

That said,
conceded as asked and answered,
Some questions remain
more ecologically and economically,
politically and personally,
publicly and intimately,
naturally and spiritually
more significant than others.
More urgent
in times of great climate global extinctions,
than mere national economic recessions.

I remember an economics class
at Yale
when the moderate,
academically and politically even-handed,
almost philosophically bipolar professor
argued with persuasion
about historically proven polarizing dangers
of this growing divide between rich
and poor,
within nations
and across international economies,
still-emerging gaps
and cracks
and fissures
between upper-middle stasis
and revolutionarily unrested lower-middle diastasis,
with an evaporating populist median,
Tipping cooperative values
against competing disvalued Points
between these antagonistic two;
forming One Great Transitioning Divide–
plutocratic predators and cooperatively-huddling prey.

I also remember his frustration
about economic scholars
not having a robust theory
to explain why
financial and political history
tell this story
without apparent evolutionary reason,
or intent to survive,
much less co-invest
in mutual thrival,
perhaps revolutionary gospel revival
of trusts and truths DNA-democratically held
and savored.

He could not explain why
the Democratic Party
has made more cooperative multi-class creolizing sense
to worry about this growing bad climate
while the Republican Party
has made mere plutocratic competitive nonsense
to deny historic significance
of growing traumatic polarization
between Elites
and increasingly segregated,
and marginalized,
and criminalized
assumed to be worthy of God’s further retributive justice
so poorly earned
by our own uncompetitive powerlessness,
lack of divinely-inspired wealth
or fame
or influence.

As Taoists,
or any healthy bicameral-bilateral permacultural developers
of any creed or color,
organically committed to investing only in Win-Win NonZero-Sum Games,
toward polyculturing-creolizing health-wealth outcomes,
we can see why this growing hyphenated economic divide
presents a growing disparate survival trend
for living Earth,
as habitable by humane-divine nature,
and increasingly inhabitable first for swarms of angry NonElites
whose children are at growing risk of death
by drowning
or fire
or being ballistic blown
off this face
of Green-Blue synergetic MotherEarth.

We can see why restorative ecojustice
grows a healthier climate
than a retributive Elitist egojustice
of punishment through non-competitive NonElite neglect,

Economic models of national
and cultural history questions
seldom ask,
Is it appropriate
to believe economic values and disvalues
have a reasonable option
to become informed by ecological values and disvalues
or to irresponsibly ignore them,
even deny them,
to ignore our intrinsic and intuitive health-wealth interdependence,
as if Earth’s regenerative values and creation laws
were somehow alien and NonElite
as compared to humane-divine investment values
and wealth-defensive laws.

Organic farmers and gardeners
and nondual philosophers
and metaphysicists
and ethologists
and ecologists,
cooperative evolutionists,
and all EarthMothers
know there can be no healthy economic choice for any ego’s investment
that is an anti-ecological monoculturing choice
against Earth’s basic cooperative-synergetic
healthy creolizing
regenerating nature.

Ours is not to compete with MotherNature
but to cooperate restoring justice and peace
within EarthMother Tribes and Species
asking better richer deeper wider bilateral questions
beyond the last and upcoming fiscal quarter,
beyond the last and upcoming four-year ecopolitical term,
beyond the last and upcoming forty years,
beyond the last and upcoming four hundred years.

Buckminster Fuller
and Jesus Christ
and LaoTse,
among others,
have all economically and politically observed
It is the role of a health-invested society
to restoratively facilitate
cooperative ecological development of individuals,
to make it easier to become polyculturing outcomed families,
multiculturing cooperatively-owned communities
and nations of ecological MedianExpanding Matriotism
in equivalent dialogue
with economically co-invested patriots of Earth.

I remember an economics class
when our question facilitator
of deep cooperative ecological understanding,
passionately reviewed emergent evidence
of richly creolizing populist cooperators
against monoculturing elitist bigotry
and retribution’s too wealth-invested prejudice,
as if humane-divine
health-wealth integrity
were questions
other than DNA prepared
within our ecological EarthMother’s Womb.
