Surviving Chronic Eclipses

I was on my ambivalent fence
about who to watch watch the solar eclipse,
my alcoholic allies
or the designer THC corporate investors.

Wherever it was,
we read excerpts from two permaculture designers,
to get our minds ready for this great transitional event.

Robin Wall Kimmerer,
a matriarchal Elder Native American
permaculture designer and teacher
of ecofeminist political matriarchal cooperative ownership,
if there ever were such an actual RealTime person,
tells a story of two ways to harvest sweetgrass.

One eco-centered way plays WinWin
in cooperation with each grass clump’s root system,
cutting and pinching harvests
from the base of each individual sacred stalk,
while more WhiteMan-centered investors,
buyers and sellers,
play WinSome-LoseSome capital-extraction
in competition with uprooted and thrown away,
culled and harvested and wasted root systems,
ego-convex/eco-concave bilateral D/RNA-encrypted.

Here, root systems are devoured in pursuit of entitled rights
of ownership over individual nutritional-potentiated sacred systems,
including economic rights of commercial capital rapacious growth
through normative mutual Win/Lose legal political standards,

Using strictly LeftBrain dominant secular ecopolitical values,
for natural-spiritual dipolar dignity,
(0) Soul bilateral truth,
(0) Sum cooperative RightBrain trust/competitive Either/Or mistrust Left,
(0) Core root-systemic synergy co-invested,
co-gravitating WinWin
nutritional Left/Right
Yang/Yin wu-wei
Tipping Point
Deep Learning

David Holmgren,
possibly a LeftBrain dominant ecopolitical PermaCulture Designer
and Teacher,
and Family-Householder (0)-Zone EcoRooted Mentor,
reminds us
the Turtle Island Garden of Eden,
whether as consumer or harvester
or LeftBrain dominant co-investor
seeks a proactive Left with RightBrain correlational
WinWin primal relationship,
too often LeftBrain dismissed,
and misinterpreted to mean
your egocentric right to harvest
any alternative WinLose way
you passively and consumer-market oriented feel
is your natural-spiritual right
for Mother Earth
as SkyWoman
to breastfeed you.

Some of us parents
and teachers,
mental health professionals
and public health ecological cooperators,
preachers and politicians,
theorists and practitioners of health giving and receiving
as slow-growing non-pathological climates
and reweaving multicultures,
need LeftBrain reminders
we are always better off and on
to let ecosystems,
reforesting root systems,
take their ecological (0)Soul
bilaterally revolving
slow-grown course.

Others prefer invitations to RightBrain ecocentering harvests,
where root systems are all cooperatively sacred potential partners,
and only competitively merely secular opportunities
for WinLose divestment,
a natural-spiritual kick in the ass
by the fear of a vengeful Patriarchal God of EgoMongering,
and/or by our natural-spiritual love of co-investing
with cooperative Matriarchal Earth,
to wake us Left with RightBrain up
to act to save our bicameral sighted selves.

These two responses to WinWin empowering ecopolitics,
over Yanged LeftBrain Prickly (A. Watts)
and our under-Yinned RightBrain Gooey (also Watts)
come to Left with Right CoLateral CoPresence
in most of us
in different times and development seasons
of our youthful spring
through mature adult harvest times,
back toward (0)Soul bilateral origins of Design.

Permacultural development of forests and families
with Eden-WinWin ecopoliticians and parents,
planters and harvesters,
invest in small and great revolutionary transitions
as both interdependent ecopolitical consumers
and co-responsible and eco-authoritative
therapeutic producers of polycultural health outcomes.

This is our LeftBrain dominant Yang energy
revisioning RightBrain repressed sides
trying to more confluently,
less cognitive-affective dissonantly,
and co-design re-investments with Earth
evolving our deep learning root system
of our currently eclipsing
sacred ecological
global environmental
climate of competitive ecopolitical pathology,
absence of EarthCentric (0)Soul
bilateral ego/ecosystemic mindfulness,
D/RNA ecosystemic fractal design rooted

Wind Whispering Water

So, here’s my wind with water thing.

What thing, dear?

My Yang winding theory.

I’m more interested in our
YinWater feeds YangWinds revolving
seeds YinWater

OK, then.
So, here’s our windy water thing
I’m proposing to discuss
this morning.

More inviting.
And that would be….

Take a theory,
any theory,
about anything
or anyone
or any time now
or past
or future.

So some kind of a RealTime Theory.

let’s try a theory about learning theory.

Is our Deep Learning Theory
using a WinLose (0)Sum decomposing flight assumption,
or a WinWin (0)Core slow-growth bilateral swimming assumption,
or perhaps both-and,
Left with Right?

Couldn’t our Deep Learning Theory
hypothesize WinWin ecopolitical winds of change
as ecological waters of flowing sacred grace?
Together, WinWin OVER WinLose cultural dominance,
yielding statistically significant
short-term through multigenerational
polyphonic health outcomes
as compared and contrasted with LoseLose antithesis,
or even WinLose deductive-reductive competing evolutions
and incorporations,
somewhere hopelessly lost in Confusing Business As Usual?

I’m not sure I have anything wind or flowing water
to add,
although maybe it would be easier for some
to abstract down
into a more metric binary summary,
YangLeft (+,+) 1-binomial convex Polynomials
are WinWin equivalent
to notnot (-,-) YinSquared-Fractal DNA-RNA Polypathic (0)-Sum dipolar,
co-arising nonduality,
(0) Soul, bilateral ecological,
and double-binary bionic balancing.

with all due respect,
I’m not sure that is shorter, or more fluid,
or any more or less WinWin accessible
for RightBrained inductive me.

Perhaps we could weave them back and forth,
in and out together
to make an ecopolitical prime wind/water relationship
just and peaceful us?

Are we still talking about our Deep and Wide Learning Theory?

More of an Open Systemic proposal, really.

I thought you would never revolutionary ask
to conjoin our WinWin
Left with Right
Yang with YinYin
P with N(NP)
+1 with -(-0)
Deep Learning (0) Soul Sacred Ecology Theories.

I didn’t know you were waiting
for me to ask.

Well, if I have to tell you I’m waiting
it sort of defeats your WinLose patriarchal domination proposal
doesn’t it?

No, that’s OK,
I like us Deep Learning better
when asking and inviting,
nurturing and challenging,
discovering and uncovering,
flying and swimming,
works both WinWin sensory equivalent trusting ways,
moving together
Theories of (0) Soul ReGenerative octaves
delineating double-bound bilateral fractals,
like hydrogen and oxygen,
like uracil and cytosine
like form and flow function,
like space and time,
like convex expanding as also concave recessing,
like co-arising and co-gravitating,
wind with water.

Or maybe well-watered wind.

Do you prefer your understory function on top?

Variety is the spice of regenerating life, dear.


Why Discovery Matters

The Twelfth Principle

Cooperatively adopt
and responsively adapt
for creolizing acclimating
best climate and landscape health practices.

The U.S. today
reweaves two points of national nutritional departure,
both taught in schools
and history books
and multicultural sciences
and scents
and sounds.

LeftBrain dominance,
here in post-millennial enculturing lands,
remembers we came to be
in this U.S. place and time,
because Columbus discovered
the American Continents.

RightBrain nurturing matriarchs,
PermaCultural Designers,
Cooperative Incorporators,
ecologists as ecotherapists
for climate health
by clearing out maladaptic relationships with ecosystems.
seasonal-fractal annual redevelopers
designing and planning DNA regenerative systems,
also remember the WesternHemisphere of the 1000s,
indigenously, from within,
more nature-spirit balancing holonic as healthy,
here all along
uncovering ourselves before Columbus
visited to harvest us.

It is important for LeftBrain dominant ecopoliticians
and teachers,
mentors and parents,
and healthy sustainable incorporating persons,
to finish our cooperative original national Constitution Statement
in ways that both polarities can win further regenerativity,
healthy cooperative wealth.

Columbus did historically discover what became the Americas,
more or less,
as an ecopolitical commodity
for WestEuropean colonization,
immigration by means of
mutually assured aggression
as necessary,
or even just more convenient,
to Christianize,
sometimes violently and rapaciously,
further WhiteMale economic and political patriarchal empowerment.

That happened both as us
and to us.

adopting a RightBrain Sacred Elder
perspective on Turtle Island Paradise,
the old, yet also new, EarthTribal landscape
notices Yang healthy adoption
v. Yin pathology-as-malaptive-Victim.
What creolized into U.S. mutual acclimation
was here all along, potentially, without Columbus,
waiting to uncover further WinWin gratitude
for grace already deeply and indigenously learned
by polypaths
noticing polycultural historical reweaving opportunity,
promise for better AdoptingLeft and AdaptingElderRight
ecopolitical cooperatives,
emerging through fractal annual 4-seasons
of polyphonic
polynomial holonic
Zero-Soul Outcomes
for exterior climate through interior personal health redevelopment,
for those with more of a RightWing Columbus orientation
to whom we have more rapaciously become,
and for those with more Left and Right wings of Eagles
spreading far beyond pre-historic nativity,
patriotic feelings
about healthy landscapes
and courageous climates
of revolutionary life
and dualdark predation.

2020 post-bilateral millennial revision
remembers who and what colonized America
and reweaves who and what developed the Americas
during the prior 1000 years,
while both East and West cultures
virtually (0)Sum ignored us,
and most certainly did not overpopulate
or ElitistChristianize
by demonizing
what SkyWoman created,
Turtle Island ReVolutionary Eden ReForestation,
divine-humane ecotherapeutic
and familial
and tribal
and more patriarchal-matriarchal
domestic through international ecopolitically resonant,
confluent; not dissonant.

WinWin Cooperative EcoPolitics
adopts LeftBrain deductive language and healthy intent
while Elder RightBrain adapts with creolizing regenerative
Sacred EcoLogical
with 2020 balancing bicameral enlightenment.

We are both Prickly Cowboys
and Graceful Indigenous RNA root systemic transgender
polypathic forests,
both lightLeft and dualdark GooeyRight,
creolizing acclimators,
to paraphrase,
and somewhat Gregory Bateson embellish,
and Buckminster Fuller reincarnate,
Alan Watts with Julian Jaynes bicameral ethology
as historical democratizing WinWin purpose.

Cooperatively adoptLeft
and responsively adaptRight
for optimal creolizing acclimation,
best climate and landscape health practices.


Weaving Protest Songs and Dances

Robin Wall Kimmerer,
in Braiding Sweetgrass,
describes the first three woven rows
in process of making an ash basket.

The first Yang row of ecological root structure
is most impossibly conflicted
between extreme tensions up and down.
Weaving Yang-dominant is more of a competitive march
through miserable times of patriarchal-only history.

The second yin row,
of ecopolitical consumer ebb and producer flow,
is also difficult
in the same oppositional reverse tension with Yang way
as Yang was first row intransigent,
but also because Yin wants to evenly
bilaterally divide Tipping Points
of weaving in and out splints
and threads
and strings of regenerating spirals,
so timing with spacing adds to the more appositional weaver’s second row
slow slog through matriarchal nurturing
of pregnant right proportion
and symmetric time,
consuming conception
to produce rebirth
of consumers of patriarchal-matriarchal
Yang-Yin re-conception.

The third row is our first Tao wu-wei,
in-between Yang with appositional second-tier Yin,
now co-arising and co-gravitating tensions
balancing extreme bilateral boundaries,
Yang with Yin nuanced edge margins
of 0-sum growing basket tensions.

Now the weaver is free to focus more on wave-linear rhythms
of out yin
and in toward yang ego 0-core center,
like breathing in toward ego,
then back out again
to economic’s Earth-center.

This third dipolar co-arising row
is when the singing can best begin
to join fingers and hands and arms
and upper mindbodies dancing to Yang ecological framing
and Yin economies of ergodic rhythmic spacing,
flow of 0-sum thermodynamic grace.

this has been a practice more of matriarchal cooperatives
rather than patriarchal competitive marches
through military-industrializing hunting expeditions,
LeftBrain dominant shouting
and ballistically historic contests
in spreading violence.

If our history,
as well as that delivered by mass mediated resources,
were more about who could weave and dance and sing
our YangYin ecological economic political basket best,
that would be more of a good news herstory day
and week,
and month,
and year,
and lifetime of YangYin ego-eco centering education
for designers and cooperative song and dance skillset development,
including our schools,
and Sunday Schools,
and libraries,
and Senior Centers,
and Youth Centers,
and Community and Family Centers,
and family rooms
more cooperatively weaving
and less competitively texting and twittering
on ego-centered cells
yet getting slowly smarter phones,
watching Red Yang
and GreenBlue Yin
reweave polypathic baskets
of revolving spiral EarthJustice,
while singing and dancing polyphonic SpaceTime patterns.


Three Sisters CoOp

The CoOp featured Women and Families
and their Matriarchal Allies,
often LGB and/or T,
and even some curiously queerer,
but not meaner
in appropriate demeanor
regardless of habitat
and camouflage
and costume,
ready for a folksy ball,
come as you neighborhood are
at Three Sisters CoOp.

The Corn Sisters
first brought their good news gospel,
Christian straight through bisexual,
standing Yangish tall.

To conjoin the Bean Brothers and Sisters,
enslaved in wombs a bit too much longer
than their corny deep green sisters,
yet rich brown and red
and forest green ready
to sprout and reforest spiral,
yet digesting appropriately just right,
what Corn could carry and bear,
before producing their Bean creolizing
jazzy song and dance performers;
sultry street reformers
resting on a corny stalk of Yang.

Pumpkin spreading shade Earth Allies
grow across the CoOp’s neighborhood,
incorporating spiritual
and natural nutritions
to feed a hungry matriarchal-patriarchal world,
rich with integrative nutritional potential,
deep with CoOp integrity
to reweave,
Three Sister CoOps,
wherever humanity blooms,
not bleeds so much,
as and where planted,
in and out,
up and down,
back and forth
TaoTime reweaving.

A Great Transitional bean-brother
and sister
stood to take the lunch microphone
first opened up this day
to say:

If you look at a flat picture of a three-sprout braid,
it looks like oppositional Yang and Yin
are bilaterally weaving in and out
in Hypostatic Union
universally alone.

Yet that same three-dimensional braid
when felt and looked at
from at least all three-sides,
unveils a secret wu-wei Trinity
of TaoTime,
a braid for Sacred Corn
as FatherSun,
a braid for Natural Beans
as Holonic Cooperative Flowing-Spiral Spirit,
a braid for MotherEarth
Squashed Down Folks and Species
spreading lovely shade and reforesting projects
and cooperative programs,
economically and politically discouraging competing weeds
while splattering growing psychologically complex rain
where it best absorbent falls.

But, which nutritional strand is which
depends on you,
the ecopolitical view you listen to most Yang-Yin deeply,
as written in sweetgrass braids
of each Three Sisters CoOp.


Political Poetry Bowl

Vulnerability is rich soil for gratitude
while Yang strength is rockier,
less robust for absorbing flows of nurturing waters.

Just as gratitude
is richer soil for abundance
than Yang attitudes
of elitist patriarchal supremacy.

At Yang’s perpetual adolescent table,
each diner has his family’s autonomous bowl and spoon
of diverse inherited sizes.
The object of this eating nutrition game
is to grab as much of Earth’s Common HealthWealth
as possible,
to keep your bowl not just full,
but overflowing into storage bins
and deposit boxes.

Good Yang capitalists,
well-fed to corpulence,
are not known for their satiated abundance,
but more for insatiable hunger for more
food in their wealth bowls today,
unaware that Earth’s crops of storage bins
and deposit boxes
encroach now across the Commons garden
of formerly more organic nutritional abundance.

Yin has no such strong autonomous table.
Here Gaia is known as a OneBowl-OneSpoon economy
playing universal Golden Rule cooperative politics.

As political capitalism’s OneBowl Earth
separates wealth for those inside our OneBowl
from health,
especially for those on the margins
of our One Matriarchal Gratitude Bowl,
then competitive abundance tips toward cooperative recessions,
away from abundance
toward insatiability of Yang’s autonomous
growing numbers of bowls and spoons
of widely disparate inherited sizes,
where biggest might of great abundance
never fills each glutted plutocratic bowl
not yet sufficient for paranoid insecurity’s conservation needs,
sufficiency in defensive competition with all Others.

At some point Yang might notice
that all patriarchal competing bowls
of diverse sizes and colors and cultures and nutrients,
derive from our one GaiaEarth Bowl
with One Ecological Spoon,
feeding Yin vulnerability
toward matriarchal gratitude
and, thereby, cooperative ecopolitical abundance,
and not so much falsely autonomous Yang short-term strength
feeding anthrocentric competitions and racisms
toward capital violent-industrialized
marketing of Earth’s remaining scarcity
for Yin/Yang OneBowl-OneSpoon
ecological life.


In PostMillennial Hypostasies

Once upon a time
Earth was formed
by Yang light radiance
and Yin moonlight flow of tidal grace.

From Her Eastern hemisphere tidal waves
and deep ocean rivers,
prevailing winds and rains
clouds and electromagnetic waves,
fire and wind storms
flowed with YangSun rise
toward western evening’s sacred Elder dusk.

Western hemisphere’s turtle back
flowed appositional with YangSun,
prevailing with and without FullMoon’s yin-centering tides.

Once upon post-millennial time
of expanding co-operative Gaia Theories,
creolizing psychology’s ecopolitics of healthcare-giving
and receiving WinWin love,
we noticed our nondual Turtle Hemispheres,
LeftYang industrial sunlight revolutions
with RightYin sustaining GrandMother sacred moonlight evolutions,
Industrial Revolution days
predicting non-renewable energy descent into nightmare nights
but also yin-renewable energy ascension
into and for and of
climates and landscapes and mindstates and dreamscapes
of 4D ecopolitical reversion therapy,
rooted in ecological flow systems
of tidal waves
and oceanic rivers,
prevailing winds and rains
and root systems of nutrition,
clouds and ionic/ironic dipolar thermodynamic balance,
revolutionary fire and wind pollution storms
merging with anthro-hubris denial,
our Yang-dominant shit don’t stink,
flowing west to east again west,
north to south reweaving north,
left to right creolizing rest
in bilateral trust secular/sacred regained.
