Good and Bad

“Shih” translates into Good
as “Fei” becomes Bad.

And so moral textured oppositions
Right and Wrong
Healthy and Pathological
True and False
Win and Lose
Healing peace and Punishing revenge

Yang and Yin
distinguish rational appositions,
not sufficient as Either/Or left-brain calculations
and necessary Both/And right-brain
correlative associations

Like Yes and (not) No,
Positive and (not) negative
Is and (not) Is Not
EgoCenter and (not) EcoSystem
Inside and (not) Outside
Wax and (not) Wane
Rise and (not) Fall

Each of these implied
double-binding terms of co-related contrast
includes an enthymematic hypothetical boundary
bound with both Full and Empty Zero
languaged as not numeric
or stagnantly spatial framing
but more dynamic temporal dipolarity
co-arising into consciousness

Ego’s secular empowering Zeroness
is also EcoZerofilling articulation,

Healthy democratic
and not pathologically autocratic,

Trusting cooperation
is not over-capitalistic competition,

Moral value evolution
is other than merely rational avocation,

is not precluded by induction,

are not absent of feeling,

Moral balance
expects more than relativistic legal shadows,

Conserving Earth’s lifetime resilience
is not merely avoiding EgoCentric
cognitive/affective dissonance,

LeftBrain truthful polypaths
are not instead of RightBrain beautiful polyphonics,

Polycultural EarthTribe outcomes
are not sufficiently predicted
by Monoculturing narcissistic incomes.


Sabbath Culture

Watching this new sabbath begin,
darkness born of dusk,
dawn birthed by night,

I wonder about comparisons
between everyday logic
and systems restoring thinking,
feeling primal relationship
between verbal analogic
and nonverbal spacetime metaphor,
4D revolving EarthMaps,
seasonal/fractal missions
all designed for deep healing

Sabbath therapy
between linear cause-effect sequential history
and resonant/dissonant
resilient/unstable loops of regenerative/degenerative
solar systemic recycling causes
with Her antecedent birthing effects
becoming future’s further causes.

Logic collapses past and future health dynamics
into static unchanging inside v outside
and non-temporal non-contextualized either/or relationships
of verbal thought
about smaller and larger sets
growing and shrinking,
removed from nonverbal feelings,
health/diseased sensations,

of win/win analogical ecological metaphor
of active hope
for healthy inside-outside climate resonance,
both ego-
and eco-therapeutic

Resilience for all Earth’s ego-smaller
and eco-larger systems,
left and right
west and east
north and south
interdependently dipolar hemispheric.

This ecosystemic health context
intuitively feels
and rationally believes
our larger ego-harmonic sabbath narrative,
sunny day of non-tragic history,
positive energy enculturation
remains sadly untouched
by autonomous left-hemisphere verbal logic,
either cause
or effect,
disembodied linear analogic,
metrically decontextualized absence of warm/cold ecologic
without polypathic/polyphonic metaphors
reborn of sabbath theologic,

Everyday left-hemisphere verbal language
without right-hemisphere curious and courageously felt listening

toward healthy
systemic memories
restoring wealthy egologic
more polyculturally regenerative
during days and nights of rest,

WinYin cooperative
strategically thought and organically felt
resilient and resonant
Future Integral HealthSabbath Systems,

Restoring cloudless blue-sky sabbath mornings,
predicting yet another day
of leisurely here is now,
space is bilaterally measured time
is distance from sabbath zero-zone bliss
dipolar co-arising.


Hating Outside Haters

Like warring against faithful warriors,
I host these inside spirited voices
sometimes LeftWing win/win
and sometimes RightWing suboptimal win/lose,

Now outwardly accelerating toward deniable lose/lose climates–
narrow-minded nationalism
patriarchal religious privileged truth
xenophobic fears my own species will survive
to kill all others,
entropic dead ego-less apathy
un-ecosystemically pathological.

RightWing cynicism
feels like my hungry camouflaged wolf
impatiently waiting
for a kleptocratic
privileged White-Hetero terrorist’s manly clothing
to sniff
then hate.

Yet, in silent LeftWing waiting for heroic deliverance,
in-between these SpiritSanctuary daytime Voices
of imagined ego/eco-consciousness,

Some voices, persuaded by compassionate universal feelings,
and others, more heuristically ambivalent,
hold out for immortal winning EarthTribe space

And, most coveted of all,
re-winning Paradise throughout remaining timeless time
for restoring just ecosystemic healthy EarthSoul
and active peace, communion
ego-celebrating SpiritVoices

More win/win attuned
in better sung and danced
health harmonic questions.


Feeling the Accountant’s Rumble

Earth resounds polynomially rational
restoring harmonic faith
in an omnipotent universal
double-entry accounting and governing
ego-eco balancing system

And cooperatively researching

We probably could

Health Policies for Cooperative Action

This is for better as healthier, more regenerative, economic and political health advocates. We begin with a request for proposals from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, with a March 23, 2017 deadline.

Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build a Culture of Health

2017 Call for Proposals

  • Release Date: January 23, 2017


Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build a Culture of Health (P4A) was created to help build the evidence base for policies that can help build a Culture of Health. P4A seeks to engage long-standing health care, mental and behavioral health, and public health researchers, as well as experts in areas that we recognize have strong influence on health, well-being and equity—such as labor, criminal justice, education, transportation, housing, and the built environment.The research funded under this call for proposals (CFP) should help fill significant gaps in our knowledge about what policies can serve as positive drivers of change, including how the social determinants of health can be used to achieve improvements in population health, well-being, and equity. Additional information on this program can be found at policiesforaction.org.


With that, or some other health-regenerative, rather than pathology-degenerative, Purpose in mind, here is an excerpt from George Lakoff’s “The Political Mind: A Cognitive Scientist’s Guide to your Brain and its Politics” but including my own private/public health-related ‘both-and’ notations in brackets, which I hope will not be too distracting to be useful:

How the Rational [WinLose Competitive LeftBrain Dominant] Actor Model Contradicts Real [Left/Right Bicameral] Reason

This is a book about real [bicameral re-centering] reason–what the cognitive sciences have discovered about how we really [regeneratively-positive and degeneratively-negative] think [and feel]. So far we have seen that we think in terms of [evolving WinWin nutritional] frames, [regenerative/degenerative] narratives, [ecological-nurturing flow-trend] metaphors, [multicultural] metonymies, and [choice-tree WinWin patriarchal/matriarchal Left/RightBrain] prototypes. The rational actor model is itself defined by metaphors, and its stylized [ego/eco-bilateral structural] facts [with inductive trust, mistrust, distrust feelings] are defined by [landscape of organic network, reverse-hierarchical, WinWin choicemaking-tree bilateral] frames. But [organic ecological network] frame-based and [creolization, Jane Anna Gordon] metaphorical [WinWin] thought are largely [inductive-nonlanguaged RightBrain] unconscious and reflexive, while the calculative thought of the rational actor model is [deductive-languaged LeftBrain dominant] conscious and [bilaterally, bicamerally, binomially co-arising] reflective. If you limit what you mean by ‘reason’ to [deductive-only] conscious reflective thought, you might very well be led to believe that the rational [positive-affective co-empathic] actor model [co-facilitative regenerative-reiterative mentor], or something [positive-regenerative WinWin ecopolitical] like it, might define [bicameral] rationality. That is, you might see such a [WinWin Gaming WisdomCouncil] model as defining the rational [bilateral thought/feeling] structure of [empathically trusted health v pathology] reality as well as human [metric-algorithmic-ecological] rationality–allowing human [bicameral] beings to fit their [LeftBrain EgoCentering] reason to the [RightBrain EcoFlow Inductive Feeling] rationality of the [ecopolitically nutritious] world and hence survive [Left WinLose assumption] and thrive [Right WinWin polypathic health-regenerate trust].

…The [bicameral] rational actor model is a [polypathic discernment and dialogue, communication] product of real [health-wealth optimization] reason. But the [WinWin Gaming Patriarchal/Matriarchal Network] model itself makes the inherent claim that [organic] reason does not involve either [mechanistic] metaphors or [merely metric and abstractly languaged] frames. It therefore cannot [not] be a[n ecological] model of real [interdependent WinWin] human [cooperative-dominant rather than competitive] reason. And moreover, when we study the [political health as economic wealth] metaphors, [eco-network gaming] frames, and what [regeneratively/degeneratively] follows from them, we can see the limitations and possible dangers [of LeftBrain Deductive Enculturation Dominance], as well as the [health-optimization, cooperative thrival outcome] benefits, of applying such [ecologically bicameral nutritional-regenerative as also ecopolitical empowerment/disempowerment health] models [of and for WinWin EarthCentered internal and external climates and landscapes of regenerative health, and not so much LeftBrain Dominant degenerating WinLose pathology].

pp. 220-221, Penguin

If anyone else out there sees bicameral health-wealth wisdom investing in our shared cooperative WinWin Ego/EcoLogical regenerative-positive/degenerative-negative trend analysis, leading to large-scale Both-And, rather than Either-Or, matriarchal (reverse-patriarchal mutual subsidiarity of nutritional flow-empowerment) choice-developing cooperative health-rooted decision trees, as you explore your own interior psyches, and your discussions with family and friends and aliens and other surprising and curious mixtures of health and safety defensive-progressive ambivalence, maybe we should try to bring this WinWin WisdomCouncil to global ecopolitical cooperative scale, for everyone’s current and future health and safety.

Gerald Dillenbeck MPA, M.Div. EcoPolitical CoOperative Health-Wealth GameSystem Designer, as are we all, at least biologically speaking




Yin Speaks Yang

I was reading Lakoff’s story
of what he learned at Berkeley
about international relations,
when I found my RightBrain offering further nuance;
not to deny what is here,
but to add what is also here,
but not explicitly stated,
about regenerative ecopolitical health and safety.

“The ‘rational’ approach to foreign policy was governed by a set of conceptual metaphors,
taken as simple common sense,
as metaphors [of and for regenerative v degenerative systemic processes] often are.
As a special case of An Institution
is a[n Organic-Holistic-Interdependent] Person,
there was A Nation is a[n Organic-Multiculturing] Person.”

“In addition,
a common metaphor for rationality is used,
Rationality is the Maximization of Self [as organic subsystemic part of MultiReGenerative Other]-Interest (or ‘utility’ [as health-wealth fertility]),
which entails that it is ‘irrational’ [and unhealthy] to act against one’s self-[intergenerational WinWin multicultural]interest[s].
These two metaphors are then combined to yield:
A [Healthy, Happy, Secure] Nation is a Rational [Organic TransReGenerational Polypathic] Actor[ess].”

“…we get as an entailment
the central thesis of the [organic] rational [trans-regenerational evolutionary] actor model
in international [interfamilial, intertribal, interspecies] relations:
Every [healthy] nation
acts [bicameral] rationally
to maximize its [health-wealth] military [Yang] strength [prosperity],
economic[-ecological hybrid] health [and happiness, with long-term defense of safety],
and political [cooperative polypathic] influence.”

on this conception,
is taken as
[discontinuous, deductive-only, reified, either-or] universal
and occurring at the [technology, tool, framing, modeling] level
of the
[organic, living,
matriarch nurturing,
bicamerally mature-evolving] state.”

I feel so eviscerated.

Get over it.
not either-or.
You still got all your parts,
just more integratively co-aligned.

Yes, ma’am!
Who got out of bed on the wrong side today?

Don’t even try it.

I’m going back to my “Political Mind” without you.

And, if possible, dangerous.

You really aren’t going to let me have the last word today are you?

I thought I was your last word,
your everything.


BiCameral Ecologic-Rhythms

He awoke won but foggy morning
with a benignly felt Conjecture:

Positive Psychology
is also Political-Economic Health Projection

Cognitive truth statements (+)
feel aesthetically beautiful,

Theorem (-,-) as not not Conjecture

False relational and transactional anti-reality
unreasonable absence of good faith,
feels aesthetically chaotic,
notnot information
having merely potential co-empathic
co-arising powers in some future or past time
that could not possibly be now;

Conjectures co-arise Theorems
as Theorems prove/disapprove
(0)riginating Conjectures

as Left languaged Brain
co-arises Right Brain’s notnot balancing co-empathic feelings:
trust (+1) binary Tao-sync with (-0),
mistrust (0),
active distrust (-,-) mutual immunity to conjectured truth-value statement.

Empathic Trust conjoins healthy political co-arising relationships
and eco-normic, or ecological, nondual transactions
between Left Conjecture and Right-Proportioned-Patterned Theorems,
Cognitive Dissonance enjoins further confrontation,
chronic stress heading toward climatic distress
between Left/Right Balancing Conjectural Theorems
discontinuously evolving benign political-economic identity
confluent with healthy EarthTribe minds and bodies.

Healthy truth slow-grows trust
or revolutionary bust
of collectively incarnated conjecture bubbles.


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.


In My Dipolar Home

In my universal-Left and unitarian-Right bicameral home
“crazy” has two functions,
ballistic weapon Left
aimed Right at Other,
ballastic anchor Right
aimed with EgoSelf co-arising EcoOther.

when that begins with “you are”
dispossesses nutritional powers of functionality
with dire political and economic consequences
of appropriate fear and anger,
even hatred for this Word itself.

“Crazy” ballast
begins with “I am”
and “we all are,
or could be,
or have been;”
a synonym for “Wild.”

“Wildness” hunts a dipolar antonym
for “domesticated”
like difference and sameness
of wild yeast
with domestic yeast.

a Left-dominant economist’s
overly reductive
and enthusiastic synonym
for “commodified,”
even “exegeticalized”
or “orthodoxed”
as true, and good and rational, and just,
found to function
with quantifiable domesticated values
for efficiency and effectiveness,
especially for continuing
our Win-Lose Left-brain dominating cultural game.

But, dear co-economists,
co-domestic politicians,
eco-logists, one and all inclusive
discerning languaged tribe of “crazy”,
what has become domesticated
remains primally as wild as RNA’s encryption,
syntax exegetically balancing regenerative harmonics
Nature’s ecosystemic-logic
will only permaculturally allow,
and polyculturally love,
decompose for future Wild’s balancing regenerational outcomes;
you know, kids, children, offspring,
new eggs from old nests.

Earth’s Tribes are wild crazy universal,
despite DNA’s uniting
and regeneratively cooperative economic understory
of perma-enculturating intent,
deductive/inductive orthopraxis,
Left-Right co-arising hemispheric ecotherapy,
balancing Wild-Rational eco-full bicameral
dipolar [reverse co-relational] consciousness.

If Wild is not Universalist
then our political economics
could not evolve Unitarian.

Earth Rights
include rights to evolve dipolar balancing Wild-consciousness,
form with function,
incarnating ministries,
Zero-Soul timelessly TransParenting
Tree of Life Greets Death
Co-Messianic Exegenetically Rooted,
+/(-,-) [plus OVER bi-laterally negative self-bound logic as positive-inductive co-operating form/function/flow/frequency]
tri-temporal yangspace/not-not linear binomial yintime,.

NotNot (-,- binary balance)
Thermodynamic Prime-Binary Gaming EcoBioSystemic Equivalence.

In My home
“crazy” evolves three functions:
One, to see who is winning (and when and where and hopefully why),
Two, to hear who is losing (when and where and hopefully why),
Three, to decompose this losing wildness
into its imaged dipolar opposite,
to co-mentor eco-wins thru EgoDeath’s
Plan B with A WinWin.

You heard it here
but I heard it first
way back in UU history.
Bilateral Zeroism as prime function
goes back at least to Bucky Fuller,
and One could be no more Plan B Universalist than he;
and he would be offended
if his UU cooperative co-creators
could not hear his “synergy” as Unitarian-istic “love”
and self/other wildly self-optimizing regenerative design
and permaculturally economic cooperative
co-arising Left-Right development.
