Life On Top

I long to be the top new-green leaf
on the tallest swaying spring breeze tree
in my florid fragrant late-spring neighborhood.

Not to lord myself
as superior to all my more fundamentally plebeian brethren,
but to celebrate this vast sisterly view
of who we sunlit glowing are
becoming toward summer’s climax together,

Then falling gracefully
in full colored autumn,
when I will have the longest downward flighting float
of all migrations

Becoming, once again,
a sacred part of snow-covered soil
feeding next spring’s tallest new-green leaf
of All transregenerators.


Three Colored Pigs

Once upon a ZeroTime
we suffered great terror and loss.

and plants
refused to speak kindly with each other
because of a Big Bad Wolf
named Ms. Climatic Change
by her delightfully demented transparents.

Most all credible scientists in that day
were prophets of falling timeless skies,
flaming forests,
failing aquifers,
fowl winds from Big Bad SheWolf’s breath,
both bad
and way too Yangishly big.

Meanwhile, most bad faith people could not believe
in this SheWolf blowing Ms. Change
until on their own doorsteps
they saw and heard Her
violently colonizing threats
to feed and birth more rabid cubs
with ravenously monotheistic intentions,
engagement in violence
on behalf of past and future peace.

The first little pig Blue
is a democratic optimist
especially about scientific law and hopeful order.
Her pen is made of goddess straw
and entertaining tinsel tin
because that’s all her Sacred Owner could afford
while shopping for better whips
at the repurposing station.

She had the supremely democratic displeasure
of attracting predator Wolf’s initial advances
of a most unfortunate climate event.

Her house blew Blue away
before bad WiseElder wolf covens deciphered
We’re all feeding this Big Bad SheWolf together!

So little pig Blue, reborn baptized plutocratic
by recycling fear and terror,
ran all the way to her new climate grieving home,
penned up to couch surf
with or against prickly republican fundamentalist pig Red.

Red pig called out to the Big Bad SheWolf,
Declaiming God’s punishment
for sharing too much herbal tea
and probably THC,
with eastern and southern idolators;
Calling down God’s own retribution for hugging,
and otherwise worshiping,
sacredly creative MotherTrees,
rather than begging Owner Patriarchal Sun
for next Paradise
promising a better nutritious life.

A better Red wealthy life
through normal stick-built single family
Great Economic McMansions
fenced and moated sanctuaries
from Big Bad SheWolf’s growing blowing threat
and bitter bite.

Shutting out ultra-violet nightmare rabble,
if not Big Bad SheWolf problems
of Earth’s discomforting demise
while all God’s true orthodox children
move on up to timeless Red
BusinessAsUsual Capital Paradise.

But stick-built autonomy
and boot-strap conservative sanctuaries,
for monoculturally superior pigs, metaphysicians
of intelligently systematic sacred story
and orthodox fundamental theology,
did not save Red nor Blue pigs
from Gaian love for ClimateHealth
even more powerful than God’s just punishment
through SheWolf miseries
named Ms. ClimateChange.

Even gated stick-built McMansions,
and missionary fishing boats,
and carts for shipping and shooting people
and blowing other species up
and off to dungeons
burn or flee
as Big Bad Wolf
defeats quickly fading second chances
for restoring happier make-love endings
restoring ego’s wanton piggish longing
for healthy eco-justice.

Third little pig Green
built her home of natural clay bricks and stone,
with front and back yard gardens
filled with organic edibles
and chickens
to share with Big Bad SheWolf
and all her hungry cubs,
Neighbors longing for healthier water
and soil
and divine Blue secular
and Red sacred cooperative air
for breathing in climates of matriarchal courage.

Curious SheWolf extended family courage
invited outward cooperative climates
of nonjudgmental inquiry,
spoken and non-violently mentored in WinWin organic strategies,
freedom from colonizing WinLose motivations,
filling gracefully in
as active organic creolizing vocations
to retire pandemic ClimateChange tsunamis
in favor of green international ClimateHealth
for wolf and pig,
people and planet
cooperatively self-owned EarthTribal Future Investors
in ham
and bacon
and other porky products
suitable for great-grand cubs and piglets
to never think of eating their young
and old.

All these self-producing piggy products
lived with their restoring projects together
with SheWolf and Cubs
happily ever timeless after
climate acceptance
of interdependent risks
through WinWin opportunity,
scientific ZeroSoul revolutions,
humanity metaphysical evolution,
theological non-racist systemic experiential volution,
gently knocking on open doors
for ecological solutions
and resolutions
and better organic SheWolf endings.


Tough Love

My evolving definition of Tough Love:

Messages sent by someone with political-economic power over you,
sent by an authoritative administrator of future positive
and/or negative
intending some version of
“my way or the highway,
Win-Lose strategic communication.

MyWay v. LoserWay proposals
imply their victim’s response
will either result in Win-Win
or Lose-Lose health and nutrition outcomes
for both predator and prey
within this rhetorical choice event
of AngerFear motivators for LovePeace
mutually co-mentoring WinWin outcome design.

Predator is typically internally conflicted
by the ambivalence of noble willpower
while negatively co-mentoring mutually-competitive
double-negative-negative intent.

Decision of parasite,
vis-a-vis Host’s Tough Love Position
heavily influenced by degree of currently known environmental support
for WinWin option
as compared to LoseLose game rules established by Host-Predator.

Significant environmental considerations
may be cooperatively positive
and/or competitively negative
with both the WinWin frame
and the LoseLose oppositional-defiant frame,
inclusive of,
but seldom limited to,
the parasite’s relationship to the ToughLove Message Originator
and Host.

CoMentoring Parasites
wishing to transition ToughLove messages from Ego-Self-Empowered Hosts,
might suggest looking together
at how the Parasite position Wins
short-term and long-term
and how the Host position Wins
short-term and long-term regenerational health and safety-trends;

Then compare those Wins
to what the Parasite position Loses
short-term and long-term
and how the Host position Loses
short-term and long-term
what might be missed opportunities
for optimizing regenerational health and contentment,
love and peace
by continuing the Parasite-Victim’s
current LovePeace status quo,
v. AngerFear control and trajectory
toward further disease and cognitive-affective dissonance.

At this point,
it might be possible for both the Hosting ToughLove Predator
and the CoParasitically Present Victim
to engage in some dialectical conversation
about how we might achieve healthy cooperative
peace with regenerative loving kindness,

It might help,
in this regard,
to co-define perameters for
“short-term” and “long-term”,
somewhere between the range of
short as timeless-now PresentMoment emergence,
and long as time’s eternally regenerative self-consciousness,
folding and unfolding and refolding and prefolding syntax within
co-arising bicameral mindbodies.

It could also be more positively regenerative,
to agree on a scale of potential win and lose outcomes,
with optimal win polarity described as
PolyCultural Global Bliss and Peace
and Love with Justice for all Earth Tribes,
and lose outcomes trending more toward PolyPathological
Eco-Dysfunctional Over-MonoCulturally-DisPopulating Screaming Chaotic Voices
of Deadly Irrational
and Eternally Damned Dismay,
Fear of Internally/Externally Empty-Landscaped Fear
becoming Our EgoCompeting Selves.

EcoPresent Presence
speaks and acts,
nouns and verbs,
causes and double-bind effects,
our ToughLove tipping points,
teaching ourselves how we might win less anger and fear
to win more mutually loving peace
Internally cooperative intent
and positive-willed mindbodies,
as Externally regenerative time-articulating
nondual co-arising gravitas,
timeless elating gratitude,
bicamerally balancing ecoconsciousness.



While Earth is a global ecosystem composed of many tribal species, forms, ecological functions, frequencies, Earth is also one holistically cooperative, self-regenerative economy.

Our cultural beliefs about “economics” evolved from agrarian and survival instinct origins, when our original economic intent was understood as parasitic dwelling within a benignly harmonious, more or less, four-seasoned, sometimes less, cooperative Host, played by ecosystems of residency.

Value, exchanged and traded and bartered for value was an extension of natural systemic stimulus-response, cause-effect, gratefully given and gratefully received, more or less, as the basic nutrient value assumption.

Completed exchanges were decomposing history with all economic parties interdependently involved, some more directly, some less, anticipating regenerative intent, a win-win healthy economic norm of cooperative orthopraxis.

Real property was never something that could be purchased or sold because it could not be owned. This would be equivalent to believing the parasites “owned” the Host.

As shared stewardship gave way to defensive Mine!!! positions, our eco-cultural paradigm of usually benign Host with usually benign and mutually subsidiary parasites gave way to food chain empires of predators v. prey.

Competitive economic shortages were born of anthropocentric perceptions of, and concerns about, insufficient nutrients and shelter for all tomorrow, and next winter.


Ecological Economics

Buckminster Fuller and Laotse share a primordial concern with our economic well-being. Just as our economies are our value transactions, our governance, of self and others, is our ordering of values, which may be either positive and confluent, bringing contentment and just peace, or negative and dissonant, bringing entropy, decay, and cognitive dissonance.

The economies of natural systems, including humane natural systems, follow an explicated Yang-convex-Positive AND gravitationally implied Yin-concave-Negative ecological principle of balance. This is not so much a static place of stasis; more of a dynamic spacetime of diastatic mutual enculturation. Evolution unfolds a generative economy of Positive YangPolynomial and Negative No-Longer-and-Not-Yet YinPolynomial balancing mutual prehension. Economic disvalues are counter-evolutionary, irrational, and dissonant. Natural systemic values enjoy prime relationship ecologic between physical gravity and metaphysical gratitude, between our body’s intuitive sense of balance, correctness, rightness, and our mind’s sense of balance, correctness, rightness, truth, equity, beauty, goodness, and logically optimizing value.

Where Fuller and Laotse differ is in their contrasting historical relationship to the Industrial Revolution. Laotse would not have recognized a distinction between ecological value and economic value. His wisdom roots back toward a shamanic sensory baptism in the flow and force and function of natural waters and winds and seasons and light and dark voices. Logic was ecologic and analogically cognized and incarnated. A fully optimized economic life is a life lived in contented harmony with Earth’s natural systems, including mutually subsidiary relations within the family and community.

Fuller, on the other hand, has a more prophetic mission, to reconnect economies of optimized design and regeneration with natural logic discerned through observing biometrics, and analyzing their implied geometrics of natural system development. Fuller also had a post-Darwinian arsenal of symbiotic relationships to draw from. While Laotse has at least been interpreted to dwell on predator v. prey competitive natural economies, Fuller’s enculturation permits keeping this competitive assumption in play with cooperative host-parasite relationships. The relationships of primal and primary and prime interest to Fuller are Earth as host and humans as parasites, and perhaps body-physical information as natural host and mind-metaphysical universe as analogically and ecologically derivative of natural energy, metric development, and oppositional balance. Not so much consciousness as parasitical but nature’s intelligent comprehension as ectosymbiotic design.

Fuller wanted to prove global nutrient sufficiency to move away from a competitive economic culture of predator v. prey, in a world assumed to struggle without inclusive bounty. Since the 1970s, according to his analysis, there have been no ecological barriers to moving away from Win-Lose competitive economic assumptions, in favor of more sustainable, peaceful, and mutually grateful Win-Win cooperation; an emergent post-millennial ecological foundation for our species’ inclusive  and life-sustaining economic regeneration.

As our cells have learned a cooperatively supplemental subsidiarity within their mutually parasitic economy, so too human egos can learn a cooperative mutually subsidizing ecologic for sustaining life and more regenerative economic trends for Earth’s evolving ground of all being. Fuller and Laotse both frame a natural systemic positive teleology, systemic understanding of ecological meaning and purpose, without invoking a systematic theology. God becomes Universal Ecological Intelligence discovered through observing the flow and function of natural form, the evolution and devolution of information.
