On Capitalizing Plants

A Commentary on

“A Note on the [Patriarchal-Capitalist] Treatment
of Plant Names”
by Robin Wall Kimmerer, p. 385
BRAIDING SWEETGRASS:
INDIGENOUS WISDOM,
SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE,
AND THE [SACRED] TEACHINGS
OF PLANTS

I too often accept
with nary a LeftBrain dominant thought
that our verbalized labels
for individual EgoPersons
are RoyallyCAPITALIZED.

To write
“Marvin Appletree”
would be to strip my tree
of His/Her sacred status
as an EarthTribe indigenous
child of MotherEartha
long before my own anthrosupremacist
sense of owning Real Estate
and all the Othered squatters
breathing anonymously on It.

It would be LeftBrain laughable
to write “Mosquito”
if this were in reference
to a flying insect,
any non-individuated
yet potentially annoying
predative Other.

LeftBrain Capitalization
conveys a certain Either/Or divisive distinction,
difference,
pejorative dissociation,

The anthrosupremacist position
of humans
normatively communicating outside
our sacred Grand Canyon spaces
and our own Creations
and our own proprietary Estates
esteemed private and corporate ownership
within a Patriarchal hierarchy
of CAPITALIZED Beings.

Economists have widely adopted
the win/lose Capitalism convention
of not sufficiently capitalizing
investing in the common sacred values
of organic plants
and animals
unless they are included
in a HumanNature narrative
for an official sacred space
place LeftBrain labeled
Holy Spirit Natured Sanctuary.

Thus, the first blossoms
of my favorite RightBrain cooperative gift:
Spring bursting flowers forth
in sacred organic Forests

Are LeftBrain written
as bloodroot
and the pink star
of a California Yosemite National Park
tiger lilly.

This seemingly natural
non-spiritual LeftBrain normative
verbal rulemaking
in Either EgoMine/OrAlienOther labeling
expresses deeply held competitive win/lose assumptions
about HumanNature monopolized
monotheistic
dualistic exceptionalism,

That ego-privileged speakers
and writers
are valued sacredly different
and monotheistically better
than other EarthTribe
panentheistic
Holy Nature/Spirited species
acting as our Othered
also-ran un-invested backdrop,

Mere organic environment
with only the Truth
and Beauty
we so royally assign
on our magnanimous best healthy days
and benign wealthy nights
to revere our Sacred Elders.

Indigenous wisdom
recognizes
reconnects
re-ligions
polycultural co-relationship
of all interdependent organic Beings

As equally 7th Principle
unitarian sacred
and ecopolitically
universally important

RightBrain imported
transpositioned
communioned
co-passionate

Not in a Patriarchal hierarchy
of ecopolitical scarcity
to merely win/lose survive
otherwise degenerative lose/lose nihilistic
genocidal
ecocidal outcomes

But a PolyCultural Blue/Green Global Communion
eco-revolving gifts
spiraling circles
of EarthTribe Left/Right balancing life
includes RightBrain emotive love impressions.

So, in my LeftBrain universal ego-narrative
as in my RightBrain sacred
unitarian love life,

I break,
disconnect to reconnect,
without ego-LeftBrain partisan blinders,
to write
and speak
and sing
and dance freely

With my MarvinGaye AppleTree,
with they WiseHeron
and Boisterous Walrus
spirited natures
when I value a panentheistic
ego-person,
human Holy NatureSpirited,
or not;

And sing Health and Safety
Truth and Beauty
bicameral secular/sacred Anthems
of EarthTribe maples,
herons,
and bicameral balancing humans

When I value a LeftBrain
EitherMe/OrWe category
AND a RightBrain
holonically
multiculturally
polyculturally
poyphonically
polypathically felt
polyvagal complexly abundant
co-passionate win/win

Yang-strong/yintegral-flow
universal/unitarian
secular/sacred reconception
of consumer commodities
as productive
meaningful
mindful BiPartisan Gifts

Voting by sacred presence
for resilient EarthTribe
Left-healthy
and Right sacred safety

Democratic recycling
revolving
dynamic breathing in from above
as out from below
co-passion balancing
MotherEartha energy.

Living Healthier Together

That we are

And, that we are together
more than apart,

Rather than are not
and never were

Resourcing regeneration’s universal promise
for growing unitarian integrity

Is not our hottest question,
passion,
nor academic topic
for therapeutic conversations,

Curious and courageous

Robust
and wealthier
than ignoring how we struggle
through Western life’s capitalistic

to the esteemed Paradise top
of a non-existent GoldenRuled patriotic hill

of win/win togathering compassion
actively dispersing violent

BiCamerally in-between Win/Win v Lose/Lose

InBetween patriarchal red Capitalism

Unable to comprehend
how we are

And, that we are together

Rather than are not

Resourcing regeneration’s universal promise
for growing unitarian integrity.

Thoughtful CoOperative Experiments

Einstein had his mathematical
Thought Experiments,
as did Bucky Fuller.

Eisenstin has our cooperative economics
feeling sacred Win/Win CoInvestments,
as did Jesus of multicultural New Nazareth
and Gautama traveling Buddha.

We all naturally have spiritual Thoughts
with natural organic Feelings,
experiments and curiosities
polyculturally ecopolitical
scientifically noticing ecological systemic empowerment
regenerates
religiously poly-theological enlightenment
through compassion stories
and nonviolent principles of secular health purpose
with sacred green wealth meaning.

Sorting Through BiNomials

Where do I draw my bilateral line
in a polycultural sandbox?

In-between a merely personal traumatic
severing
excommunicating
dispassionate
divesting
divorcing
marginalizing
loss and suffering event

And a larger staged
eco-political
critical systemic
potentially multi-generational
traumatic climate event.

Why does it feel important
to distinguish,
and perhaps discriminate
personal from ecopolitical systemic trauma?

Against an InsideEgo post-traumatic stress disordered
biosystem
And against an Outside EcoClimate post-traumatic stress
Patriarchal/Capitalist disordered
monoculturally fragile
non-universal health

Experiential Origins

When we lose access
to our most primal Other,
our EarthMother experience
dreamily following DNA’s developmental scripts,
original sacred scripture
of external habitats
becoming internal identities,

We lose not only our spiritual sense of security
but also our natural taste for liberty,
independence,
Freedom to go out from our well-conserved womb
and subsequent multiculturing habitats,
home-base to liberally spread seeds of compassion
as we have always known our purposed meaning,
natural-spirited DNA
unfolding and infolding identity.

When personal identity loses access
to natural sight
we can still hear internal spirit memories.

When we lose access
to natural taste
we can still feel ancient spirits in our starving stomachs,
in our insecure and unfree
and too secure and unliberated
and right enlightened integrating
creolizing
co-acclimating guts.

When we lose capacity
to touch organic nature
we can still feel internal integral spirits,
most without self-conscious voices,
perhaps a few with cries for liberty
and security
or death.

We can smell nature
to know which unseeable spirited winds
waft from which directions,
up and down
left and right
north and south
past and future generations
of light’s actively encultured hope, secure
and unfreedom in despair.

What we naturally lose
we organically incarnate DNA-integrity
gained so far
as individuals,
as species,
as multicultural becoming fragments
extending DNA-latticed families
tribes
living multi-generational laced-web systems,

Sometimes playing external nature with internal spirit Win to Win
for liberating compassion,
and sometimes playing sinister nature v spirit
secular outside v sacred inside detached win/lose
no longer actively securing and freeing enlightened restoration
of communal Truth and Beauty integrity;

DNA’s future health/wealth
timeless nurturing
original wombs and integral webs
co-revolving health-wealth thrival.

When we retain conscious attachment
to our primal Other,
and Her primal Others,
our EarthMother experience
originates sacred re-scriptures
speaking through nature
and listening through secure and freeing spirits
of cooperative DNA health development
ego/eco-identity.
