“The prime ethical conjecture, shared by all certifiable Permacultured (PC) Designers, is a deeply inclusive evolution of proto-history’s Golden Rule. I have written it out for you in full throttle.”
On the whiteboard he had written:
Within each moment
do with others,
including all species,
whether currently a living system,
or distant elder,
or yet to become,
as we most mindfully
vibrantly hope for ourselves
and our future generations.
“As you may recall from your time with the Information Systems Design Department, if NP = P, then (-0) = (+1) in any information, communication or other binomial metric system.
The (0)-Core Prime Root Principle of PC Design is the Law of Positive-Balanced Thermodynamics: Greatest, most inclusive of diversity, global outcome (+1.00% e-function) is reversely appositional to least cost, dissonance, loss, dismay, climatic variance, distortion, destruction, death, and even the evaporation of wealth deposits (-0.00% e-formation).”
At this point I am feeling a bit more than my fair share of dismay.
“In the physical universe, Greatest Confluent Effect OVER Least Cognitive Dissonance implies, as suggested by David Bohm, that (-e)-formation is not Dark Matter so much as Dark Ex-Formed chaotic relationships in a 4-Based dimensional system–3 spatial, and 1 temporal.”
OK, so now we have veered off into quantum physics and the strange universes of holonic Group Theory, maybe?
“In the metaphysical universe, +function = YangEnergy and -exformation = Yin/ErgodionicGravity. So, the Prime Law of PC Design is also the Prime Law of Thermodynamic Balance. I’ve written it out for you, for those who like math.”
+e-functional Polynomial (P) = -e-reverse-formative Binomial N(NP), so
+P = (-)(-)P, implied Binomial Double-Bind Prime Temporal Relationship, and
(+P * -P) = +e-squared form/function = 1 Positive QBit
“PC Design strategies are pentanomic:
1. Care for Id-Self as an abundantly graced fractal of SuperEco, or Universal Intelligence (B. Fuller)
2. Care for Other as our synergetic EcoTribe
3. Care for Earth as our shared EcoTherapeutic paradise
4. Redistribute polycultural values, resources, nutrients, information universally and cooperatively as surplus monocultural-trending development emerges
5.Prime TippingPoint Principle of Regenerative Whole System Economic Redemption: Greatest Effect/Least Cost–including dissonance, loss, violence, competition, and decay
You may note that this economic view of eco-valent optimization strategies includes both the PC (0)-Core ethical implication (2), an embellished Golden Rule, and the Binary-Prime, or TrimTab, Principle of Systemic Regeneration (5). Oppositional corollaries are implied, for the first four, and actually included in the fifth PC strategy; basically avoid sociopathological assumptions of scarcity and competition for positive values. So, these could be expanded as 10 PC strategies. For example, the 3rd strategy implies do not rape Earth as a competitively valued commodity for anthropocentric ownership, or enslavement.
Strategies 4 and 5 are reverse corollaries or appositional, if you will; Janus faces of each other. If we optimally and inclusively pursue the TrimTab Principle, then positive/negative value imbalances will self-minimize. But, when they do, they trigger the local CQI evolutionary filter, regenerating a local TrimTab (special case) solution. The TrimTab Principle is bicameral Yang proactive and Yin preventive design perspective. The 4th strategy is regenerative Yin socioeconomic therapeutic response to negative anomalous competitive excess trends in economic, value-transfer, ecosystems.
This is a regenerative pentanomic system because it includes the growth cycle from
species generation, yields
global polyculture, yields
Universal Intelligent Design, and
the reverse corollary, remedial therapy, to apply when the polycultural growth cycle produces anomalous monocultural wealth deposits and growth-yield deficits. These deposits may be viewed as positive, within the anomalous monoculture, but negative throughout the more inclusive polycultural (0) Core Prime Root Relationship systemic filter of eternally regenerative discernment, development and design.
(0) Core Prime Root Relationship is a binary metric in-forming system, speaking a permacultural language of Tao as regenerative process, very old indeed, but reincarnated recently as “Zeroism”: The Universe, and all systems, emerge not from an atomic nuclear noun, but from a mutually self-perpetuating synergetic verb relationship between Yang-(+e) and Yin-(-e) [Dark Energy]. This expresses a positively-dominant slow-constant dynamically re-fusive harmonious relationship; a reverse flow evolutionary trajectory away from dark entropic chaos, dismay, and hell, I suppose.”
The room was silent, so this was my opportunity: “Well, I recently took a look at the Rick Raddatz Pentanomic Theory of Government. He seems to define social equity as maximizing the utility of resources; that’s what a well-functioning, just economic system will, or could, at least eventually, achieve.”
Without missing a beat, Norton responds, “Yes, true enough, but the ethical problem with utilitarian economics has always been that it leaves open the possibility of declaring justice achieved without inclusively responsive peace. Our positive teleological hope for value system economies is not just for the majority to survive, to achieve equitable distribution of scarce resources, but for fulfilling sufficiency-participation in global value itself. Nothing less will achieve peace at a global scale.
We hope for vibrant internal and external ecologies. Yes, vibrant ecologies must include equitable resource transfer wisdom. But, what about developing synergetic relationships between values, resources, nutrients, information and communication systems, learning, creative expression, well-being, health? Ecological justice hopes for regenerative, vibrantly dense, rich, resonant, resilient, synergetic integrity, opulent paradigmatic optimization; a CQI standard for justice, yes, but also active peace and joy and beauty and goodness, worth, inclusive merit and well-being. Grace ecologies include fair and sustainable resource economies internal to each identity and external within SuperEco Information, now, and for future generations, inclusive of all species.”
Now, he was getting less academic, more passionate.
“Economic justice truncated from a graced ecology of peace and redemptive mercy for emergent monocultural anomalies holds no positive teleological function for a cooperative learning and mutually-mentoring culture over a competitive culture. A merely mechanical metaphor does not distinguish between relationships of win-win holistic intent, and relationships consistent with win-lose strategies; although they can work for distinguishing between win-lose and lose-lose strategies. This is not enough for optimizing regenerative ecosystems.
Anyone who studies natural ecosystems recognizes that when a system becomes a competitive environment of scarcity its flow and frequency functions and trends are pathological. Sociotherapy is the reverse trend and energy–a cooperative economy of synergetic faith in mutually-mentoring abundance, evolving rich and deeply vibrant polycultures.
Avoid mechanical metaphors; natural system analogies offer far more realistically predictive depth and texture, and they can distinguish between global win-win cooperation and more nationalistic win-lose myopic design elements.”
After a reflective pause, “A natural system filtering analogy that comes to mind is water the flowers of cooperative intent, not the weeds of competitive practice.
Any other questions?”
