Quoting Einstein

I wonder if Einstein’s moral aphorisms,
observations about healthy inclusive values,
concern about dominant cultural confusion
between positive humane energy
and anthro-supremacist mass,

If these spacetime thought experiments
could be quoted more or less RealTime often
than metric equivalence formulas
of 3D spatial matters
spiral in revolutionary bilaterals
co-arising dipolar
followed and preceded by Yintegral
ZeroZone BiCameral Time

Like thymine and cytosine
in more internal Thought Experiments
about Great Transition breaths,
precessive before recessive
before reprecessive
and after prerecessive…

Inhaling precessions
toward exhaling recessions
of atomic space
predicting wave spiraling strings
of regenerative DNA
neurological binomial
bicameral/binomial fractal structure.

I wonder if
Einstein’s multicultural moral values
are revered
more or less
because of his eco-metric
and natural scientific
leftbrain dominant systemic articulation

Resonating warm compassion
for Green Organic Earth
seen co-arising outside and
inside Thought Experiments
with left communing right hemispheres
mutually complementary,
felt inside out again,
touched through inhale
and remembered past upside down
non-violently felt
nondualistic exhale
as well,

co-arising Win eco/theological nondualistic indigenous ancestors
and Win ego/ecologically balancing you, today,
here and now.


The Americans

“I do not see what right any one would have
to object to calling this part
[the South American mainland],
after Americus
who discovered it
and who is a man of intelligence,
that is, the Land of Americus,
or America:
since both Europa and Asia
got their names from women.”
Matthias Ringmann, cartographer, 1507

With the bringing down of statues
and the renaming of sacred temples,
I am reminded of Biblical tearing down
of shrines to Baal,
the turning of politically and religiously correct
cultural backs and shoulders,
hands and feet,
heads and capital investments
away from our own idolatrous sins
of anthro-centric history.

Fair enough,
but, to gaze upon which new god
and goddess?
Green and Black sacred lives,
and red blood of The Lamb
and yellow SonLight
and blue Marian EcoFeminist
and ultra-nonviolet EarthMother Moon.

So many colors to choose
or not to choose
yet avoid new temples to Baal;

A crisis of risk and opportunity
dissonance and resonance
divestment and investment
degenerative and regenerative intent.

A critical discernment
between infamous and famous,
natural pathology and spiritual health.

What surprises me
in this current revolutionary purging
of racism
and violent colonialism
and rapacious patriarchalism
and perniciously predative mono-sexism
and almost hopeless anthropocentrism
is the resilience of Amerigo
[also Americus] Vespucci,
extractively merchanting
and mapping
and scientific explorer source
for “America”.

We had, in the 1500s,
The Americas,
South, then North
invested cartographers
led by Mr. Americus.

Indigenous populations,
now become Native Americans
in North America,
also used maps,
if not externally sketched in two dimensions,
then internally felt in spacetime four
spiraling through green seasons
of nutritional communication
bearing future fruit
and healthy seeds
and wealthy wombs.

Then came the United States of America.
Not, more humbly,
United States of North America
in part
because mappers and Earthologists
were not yet in resonant agreement
about whether this wild new West,
although now clearly not East India
with NearEast Indians,
is one united continent
or now eroded into two.

anthropoids had a choice,
to honor academic investor Americus
as next to godliness,

Recognizing that fame does not become us,
further invest this new global map
in rediscovered new age Western Earth,
lying in sacred direction of divine sunset
for those cartographers
and astrologers
residing in full moon rising Europa

Before these United States of America
and without the bondage of critical events
in EuroCentric historic story,
neither infamous nor famous
indigenous risk takers
and opportunity seekers
built temples
to deities Amerigo
found idolatrous

Which he might also have considered
as further resourced roots
of gods and goddesses
appropriate to Black and Brown and Green Lives Mattering
to RedBlooded EarthTribes
of saints and sinners
resonant and dissonant

Regenerative and degenerative
cooperatively co-invested and competitively divested

Win/win communal and win/lose capitalistic,
interdependently incorporated
and violently individualistic,

Liberal in democratic love
and stingy with constipated constitutional conservatism,
ecofeminist and egopatriarchal,
Green ReBidenuclear
and Red UberTrumpian.

Statues of,
and temples dedicated to, Americus
are difficult to find,
even more difficult to tear down.

for those who can recreate such sacred history,
systematic theology,
ecology of healthy and pathological relationships,
neurological psychology,
polypathic muse-cology
of polyphonic risk
and opportunity,
the first moment of cultural exhale
invites individual climate purgation,

This much is obvious
to our natural senses,

our second moment of inhale,
this is my returning revolutionary question,

Will we replace academic extractive Amerigo
with Uniting Global States
of GreenBlue Earth?

Or something more idolatrous
like patriarchal
and revengefully capitalistic
UberTrumpian Baal?
NeoColonizing Hate and Fear?
MonoCulturing Anger?
Lone AnthroWarriors of Narcissus?
Naked White Emperors of Americus?


Fame Not Required

My great challenge for fruitful wisdom paths
is credentialed expertise.

My obstacle to polypathic health
is self-aggrandizing comfort,
cheap ease.

Obstacles to resilient compassion
have more to do with impatient “kindness”
than diligently interdependent pursuits
of transparently vulnerable
of deep and wide resonance, seeking consilience
of cooperative wisdom.

When my wisdom circles
of dialogue
sacred discernment
turn to topics of public administration,
political science,
persuasion theory,
nonviolent communication systems,
positive psychology,
multicultural mediation,
cooperative economics,
game theory,
systems theory,
group theory,
attachment theory,
polyvagal theory,
experiential math,
permaculture design,
comparative religion,
Restorative Justice,

When these tools
within my belt of personal knowledge
are invited to work cooperatively together
to achieve resilient
and resonant
multicultural wisdom,

Problems begin when I expect
to speak unilaterally
and to be listened to,
settling for sufficiency of my credentialed expertise,
my zero-zone experience,
my health-wealth advocacy,
rather than searching for shared wisdom

Cooperative fame prefers
becoming known
for our active love of one another
exhaling out
to encompass all wisdom circles

More powerful
and famous
rather than infamous
punishingly ideological
monoculturing squares.


Spiritual Guides

Spiritual guides,
of all persuasions,
all religions,
all anti-religions,
with robust economic forecasting contracts,
and those without political capital,

Encourage their deep listeners
to avoid attachment
to positive thoughts
and feelings
and dissociation
divestment from negatively felt thoughts.

And yet connection,
organic unity,
resilient relationship,
harmonic tone,
bullish and mountainous volume
lies between too tight and high
and too loose and deep,
between back handing with impugned infinity
and open handed as leisurely timelessness,
between retribution
and restoration,
detente-infested punishing peace
and win/win healing justice.

we can find
and feel
significant differences
between overwhelming addiction to competition
and awesome cooperative commitment,

Between extracting spatial quantities
and inducing temporal qualities,

Significant thought and felt difference
constraining newly found patience
and restrained/trained
yet wondrously old curiosity,

Between unilateral love
and multicultural compassion,

Between narcissistic spending
and co-investment
in Ego
within democratically shared EarthHabitat,

Between reductive left-brain value-neutral beliefs
and inductive right-brain health/wealth,
felt golden green ratio-alizations,

Between corporate AgriBusiness
and PermaCultural Design
for polycultural (multicultural) optimizing health outcomes,

Between geometric uniformity within
all secular humane natures,
and organic interdependence
of all sacredly uniting EarthTribe
creatures alive
and dead
and not yet born,
poplars, and all trees
and bushes,
shrubs and grasses and grains;
but not guns,

Organic unity within enspiriting Earth
Root DNA sacred systems,
seasoned with ribbon nucleic acid,
internal dynamic energy
seeking ergodic structural spatial balance
and ionic wave-linear timely energy,

Between Yang bilateral-
reasonal balance
and Yin co-arising harmonic
bicamerally intelligent powers,

Between rational centering
and not not regenerative,
resonant appositional Harmonics,

Between EgoMuse
and EcoMusic,

Between personal knowledge
and ecopolitical wisdom,

Between retributive
straight white male privileged justice
and restorative
green-gold peace
for spiritual
and natural guidance.


It Feels Unfair

It feels unfair,
the doctor said,
to blame all pathological -isms
on LeftBrain dominating
NorthWestern enculturation;

Too geopolitically ecological,
too globally sweeping,
where my reason looks
for biological neurology,
more inside linguistic powers
more intimate.

But, both neurology and ecology,
both natural biology and spiritual theology,
these four each and all agree,
whether secular or sacred paradigm
for discernment,

Monocultural ecosystems
divest of originally healthier
polyculturally robust wealth,
multicultural resonance,
harmonic compassion.

So it is with LeftBrain dominant egos,
monotheistic dominated ego,
securely enslaved servants
divest of originally healthier
robustly cooperative,
and compassionately felt,
true polypathic wealth,

liberal cultural-istic phobias
conjoin with
conservative historical-isms
to regenerate more democratically robust
global ruminations,
political power and light dialogue,
cooperative investment.

well,… the doctor responded,
and colonialism,
and capitalism,
and sexism,
and anthropocentrism,
and egotism,
and ageism,
and even omnipotent monopolistic monotheism
feel unfair as well.


Thoughtless Thoroughfares

The main currents of thought
are feelings about relationships,
and negative climates,
sometimes obscured
by double-binding negatives
incuriously set aside
as merely bad news
and systemic evils

Like racism
applied to oneself
as victim of prejudice
is not reverse racism,
not multicultural intelligence,
for egos steeped
secured by StraightWhiteMale
supremely valued labeling,

Like sexism
applied to oneself as victim
is not reverse sexism,
is not vulnerability,
for patriarchally wounded souls,

Like fascism
applied to victimized losers
and lepers
and thugs
is not reverse fascism,
does not further healthy democracy,
for aristocratically wounded kleptocrats.

The main stereotypes of thought
are feelings:
About positive healthy relationship,
wealthy attachments,
empowering left and enlightening right,
liberal resonance
conserving inclusive resilience;
And about negative lack thereof.



Whoever said
Landlords have all the power
Knows that of which I speak:

Reading land leases.
Not a normal pastime,
but perhaps because
I have not read even one
written in compassion’s voice
and not retribution’s
self-empowering choice.

Thou shalt not
do anything
to attract
or pests.

No composting,
no vegetable gardening,
no careless garbage bags outside.
We retain the right to change our minds
without cause
or notice
about your little bird feeders too.

Vermin or pests.
Such choice of language
sounds King James Version jarring
denigrations of Old Testament
sinister degradation
I keep waiting for other pathogenic threats
like leprosy
to appear in these forbidding rental contracts.

And why vermin or pests?
Are there some vermin
royal white privileged landlords
wouldst not as well define
as pest?

Although I can think of pests
respectable people would not reference
as vermin–
or not into a live microphone
at Republican Conventions
for not least is best.

Why not rodents and insects?
Cause we know our landlords
are speaking pejoratively
of enterprising rats
and homey nesting mice
as disgustingly not nice.

if I were to put up bat houses
for those who would happily devour mosquitoes,
am I helping with this sacred anti-vermin cause
or offending golden contractual rules,
or both,

How refreshing it would be
to read
and reread
compassion-driven leases.

To find that Impossible Dream lease
where all creatures are respected
and everybody knows
to read
and write
and speak
and act
in cooperative WinWin
playing nice
rather than ragging
on flies and mice

As merely pestilent vermin
infesting a place
that used to have highest
and best punishing value.


Imposed Unemployment

These matters of imposed sequestration,
home health quarantine,
residential segregation,
safety zone re-education

Can also become
contemplative solitude
growing sacred mindfulness,
healthy wealth revision,
2020 wealth of health
bicameral precision,
monoculturing capitalist rescission,
dipolar non-division;

economic communication
significantly emerge from personal preference
but also left-hemisphere patriarchal enculturation
no different than propaganda
if delivered with both left and right-hemisphere
collusion intent,
unnaturally sinister,
calculating desecration,
the stuff of deep state
and dark conspiracy theories

Either True or False
or both/and complexly
ego/eco-bilaterally ambiguous,
nuanced thought with unpolarized feelings
for interior nurtured spiritual intention
and exterior nutritional natural extension,

Discernment of which solitary seeds
and subterranean root systems are health watered
and wealth weeded,

And which are treated like worthless weeds,
not to be watered with contentment,
fed with commitment,
nourished for cooperative values,
cherished within ecosystemic futures,

This weediness of ego-neediness
prays for non-preying return
to ecosystemic communal fullness.


Growing Up Divided

Growing up in twentieth century USA,
without a recent immigrant history,
nor a Native American indigenous heritage,
just another in-between victim
of Straight WesternWhite Male privilege,

I recall a smirky fuss
about Eastern mind/body connection,
unrealistic philosophy,
meditation as if medication.

It did not occur to me,
in my enthusiastically extractive
and exhausting youth,
that in the East,
Buddhist and Taoist teachers
might have indulged
in a smirky fuss

About Western mind v body disconnection,
secular science severed from sacred arts,
dualistic divine spirit v corrupt nature theology,
just war theories
rooted in retributive justice theory
instead of restorative peace experience;
body medication
without mind meditation.

In my more enthusiastically inclusive
and creative-tensioned age,
it occurs to bicameral mindbody me,
that Eastern ecosystemic connection
is also Western ego-recentering compassion,
experienced by Left-dominant hemispheres
as felt by Right-prominent
mind/body biospheres,

Searching for why binomial structures
religiously emerge from organic co-relational nomials,
dynamic spirit/natured variables,
inside/outside co-determinate sociables,
theological ecology.

western polypathic autonomous variables
and eastern polyphonic relationships,
Earth double-binding polyvagal dancing bodies
wrapped around,
and developing through,
revolving polymorphic minds
equally not not polynomially independent,
communal saints
and divided sinners.


Social Engagement

She says she’s fine with it

With social distancing

It’s her normal defiant
absence of resonant integrity.

In fact,
thanks to the magic of World Wide Webs
she now has all day
to bask in messages she can choose
as resonant
and “bad” humored dissonant
social engagement
and political disengagement,
and disempowering
now her whole day/night choice
of sounds good-humored sung
and bad-rumored hung
out for risky social distance voice.

Polyphonic prosody
is like polypathic integrity
except older,
often wiser,
and wealthier.

Harmonic humored sounds
predict virally rumored rounds
of global ego/eco-therapy,
bicamerally wiser resonance,
bilaterally health systemic resilient
and wealth politically economic

Power tensions,
as my oppositionally defiant daughter
might more mindfully intend,
resound “Fine!!!!!!!!!!!”
roared like a weapon
might not(not) question double-rewinding Fine?
if you could ask me nicely for a hug
so we return to smiling, Fine

As pastel hugs
and shrugs
dawning viral light.
