Two-Edged Blades

A blade of grass
produces health
in annual balancing equivalence
to consuming soil and sun’s wealth.

A human child
given Earth’s sufficiencies,
produces robust health
by consuming soil and sun’s captures
and re-investing wealth
out into this child’s multiculturing exterior.

A wise humane Elder
given Earth’s sufficiencies
and given trust of responsible authority
by a democratically cooperative polity,
Also aspires to produce healthy outcomes
within that community
in balancing proportion
through consuming soil and sun’s captured resources,
re-invested in proportion
to this year’s metabolic wealth,
and to last year’s producer reimbursements,
nurturing future ecosystemic health,
and to each next generation’s producers,
nurtured by this wise care
of Earth’s wealthiest Elders.

A wise, and yet child-like, blade
consumes economic health
to produce cooperatively synergetic political wealth.


Social and AntiSocial Capital

like a good creole stew,
are amazingly viral cooperators,
competitively so,
reacclimating tastes toward richer anticipations.

We have all heard of social capital
and natural capital,
of social democrats as antisocial plutocrats
and cooperatively-owned capitalist corporations,
including bipolar republics, perhaps.

These are all forms of regeneratively healthy intent
to further cooperatively nurturing ecopolitics,
as contrasted to degenerative antisocial trends
toward further climate and landscape reactionary pathologies,
alien-fear and patriotic anger incensed,
darkly nurtured.

For example,
early Christians believed the death and resurrection of their loving Messiah
reincarnated within their own cooperative nurturing hybrid communities
would regeneratively inoculate them
from a jealous YHWH’s apocalyptic
revolutionary climate changing war
against those who killed His divine-humane hybrid.

Now, within Christian cultures some two millennia later,
saying one does not believe in following Jesus
has become equivalent to not believing in the superior power of love
over degeneration.

Such climate health denier claims have become both internally contradictory,
and self-defeating,
Earth-denying in a larger capital cooperative sense
of climate change as internal/external cooperative health emergence.

For example,
you might have heard:
I don’t believe that cooperative WinWin ecopolitics
could ever become more resonant and robust
than continuing WinLose militaristic capitalism.

And yet,
whether you have faith in cooperative regeneration
as more robust than competitive degeneration
does not change the evidence of evolving history,
beginning at Empty
and climate developing toward fully Interdependent,
diastatic revolutions,
flowers and their next-regenerative seeds,
their creolizing-democratizing potential,
within Earth’s moist humus,
as revolutionary eco-messianic events,
evidence of God’s radically accessible love
overpowering dehumanizing competitive de-capitating
God-killing wrath
about our own mortality,
and the daily humiliations of ego competitions largely not conclusively won,
growing mistrusts,
dying thorns among redolent roses.

Climate change
is about both climatic degenerative trends
and climate regenerative nurturing possibilities
for politically cooperative global and individual peace
with ecojustice,
economically ecological.

climate change is about apocalypse
and critical-crisis revolutions
within ecopolitical patriarchal
and political-economic domestic matriarchal
harmonious choices and ballots of reiterative discernment
over dis-harmonious debates and competing ballistics.

saying we do not believe in this revolutionary end
to LeftBrain competitive EitherWin/OrLose dominance
is oxymoronic.
LeftBrain dominance is the capacity and odds and ends of language to speak active trust,
to admit ambivalent mistrust,
to declare unredemptively active distrusts.

LeftBrain Might-Makes-Right-And-Bright v WrongWaste
doesn’t care if you believe in its dominating history,
every time you continue feeding yourself
and your children
with your dominant right hand
your LeftBrain actions speak
your oxymoronic confusion of hybrid ecopolitical praxis.

It is as if your right hand
is not aware of what your less socially nurtured left hand
is not doing
as equivalently
as nutritiously
as capital-invested

Eschatology and revolutions
millennialism and global and even personal climate crises
are all about social-natural cooperative nurturing re-investment,
extending out,
healthing our Golden Capitalist MindBody Rule,
to love YHWH-Tao and MotherEarth as oneself
is to cooperatively nurture capital investments
in doing to and with Earth’s matriarchal womb
as we would have all other interdependent capital life-forms
and forces
and flows
and ecosystemic bilateral hybrid functions
bow namaste with regenerator us.

Patriarch Yang-Sun
and Matriarch Earth-Yin
co-evolved their cooperative nurturing Golden Rule,
EcoSystemic Harmonics,
long before divining humans came along
to evolve our LeftBrain capital-dominant sacred scriptures
speaking re-creation experiences oft-retold, then written,
of climate pathological degenerations
and revolutionary climate ecotherapeutic regenerators,
diastatic flowers co-mentoring post-revolutionary creolization,
social nurturing capital re-investments.


Organic Time Travel

My body restrains my mind.
Logic as ecologically constrained,
naturally rational,
like rain does not fall up
unless I am standing on my head.

Embodiment also limits my mind.
Imagination often resists such sparse frugality of powers,
yet also thrives on simplicity
more than duplicity.

I can imagine pleasure of mind
capable of visiting China for an hour one day
and one night,
a particular coastal town,
a particular family,
a particular other body
looking back at me
imagining how he would look and sound
to someone like me
from a coastal town in the U.S.
And then my mind’s eyes become his,
looking out at his loved ones
and actively distrusted ones
and his vistas and landscapes and climate smells
and hopes and fears.

Then the tip of South Africa
in the next hour,
then visiting both Syria and Korea
five hundred years ago
to explore constancy and change
in how we look and sound,
smell and taste,
how we feel trusting and mistrusting
and how we might feel about my RealTime ego-mind,
and then visit again five hundred years from now
to notice in this same variety of ego-
and eco-conscious ways.

Yet, in all these disembodied images
my frequent flyer
yet frugal ego remains relentlessly enclosed
by limitations of my own body’s continuous memory
of ego-eco centering mind,
favoring simplicity of transparent confluence,
aesthetics of balance and symmetric full-color harmony,
ethics of mutual time travel
empathically trusting and mistrusting out
then breathing back in with equanimity.

Becoming extended out through space and time,
only and finally to come back to rest
within multiculturally edified
yet ecopolitically simplified creolizing presence
of still ego/eco centering me,
hoping you will love how I look and sound,
smell and taste,
feel and empathically trust
at least as much as my mind can
comprehensively engage this phylogenic embodiment
we human natures each and all metamorphically breathe in,
evolutionarily extend out
to transcend mere ego,
frugal befriending flow of trusting EarthTribes.

My body restrains my mind
as our phylogenic evolution constrains our empathic mindbody,
as our embodied landscape retrains our co-empathic climates.


Which Came First?

Who would argue
about which came first,
regeneratively intelligent design,
or a decomposing degenerating natural Earth?

No one.
To do so is too patently absurd,
when we choose to see these two
not only as oppositional cause-effect,
but also as appositional
dipolar co-arising balance
of regenerative information
tacitly implied within decomposing energetic balance.

The very idea that either regenerating purpose
or degenerating nature
could originally, foundationally, come one before the other
appears and feels anti-ecological,
like choosing WinLose degenerative static being
over WinWin positive equals double-binding negative deviant
regenerative/degenerative co-arising
toward further multi-generational co-becoming.


Breathing While Thinking

Yang unveils landscapes of textured thought
while Yin brings climates of swelling and ebbing feelings.

yin affective unconscious
with yang deductive conscious labels and language of natural,
and sometimes oddly unnatural, uncomfortable, relationships,
humane consciousness
searching for divine polypathic continuous timeless eternal flow
of further regenerativity
both discontinuous nutritional thoughts
and continuous maturing revolutions of co-arising
co-digesting feelings;
Yang discontinuous Ego-embodied
convex upon Earth’s historical stage,
yin continuously matriarchal ecologos
ecosystemic concave
within Earth’s herstorical narratives of embryonic feelings
surfing mists
where grey yin oceans
ambivalently blend flowing foggy yang sky.

Where Yang follows oppositional
Either this Or that categorization
into contrasting bipolarities,
Yin co-arises appositional
Both some of that And maybe some of this too,
comparative dipolarities.

Yang, if you are an evolutionary naturalist,
is health power of nutritional regenerativity,
while Yin nurtures symmetrical internal balance
of mutually safe co-digestive degeneration;
decomposition dipolar effacing regeneration.

If you are a PermaCulture Designer,
Yang is about the structure of your regeneratively-intending nutrition landscape,
while Yin notices the feeling climates of decompositional potential,
degenerative winter
co-arising regenerative diastatic climaxing regenerative summer,
self and other cooperative
interdependent polyculturing,
multiculturing political-health as eco-wealth,
in contrast to winter’s purgative monopoly of hibernation.

If you are a Universal-Unitarian,
Yang is your Ego’s universe-embodying health and safety world views,
while Yin is your more matriarchal-unitarian
nurturing defensive climates
of domestic integrity and cooperative tranquility;
Earth ecoconscious mercy with peacefilling ego-swelling-indwelling feelings.

This relationship between regenerative Yang
and degenerative, or decompositional, Yin
is easy to remember,
as easy as remembering to induct air into your lungs,
from Yin-purged toward Yang diastatic,
and then deducting out from Yang full-regenerated
toward Yin-degenerating.

Our breath is deductively toward Yin
and inductively toward Yang,
while our bicameral minds
are deductively LeftYang dominant
and inductive-affective feeling-Yin Right nurture-dominant.

YangLeft deductive ego-conscious universe-building,
while YinRight inductive uniting ecoconscious Earth-nurturing.

God the ReGenerative Father in,
Mother Earth decomposing waste out.
What is waste for Ego,
also nurtures the trees we have not yet killed,
landscapes of textured root-systemic thought production
as climates consuming ecopolitical feelings.


Games We Play

Yang, dear.

Yes, my lovely Yin.

Why do you map Game Theory
onto EcoFeminist Political Theory?
It comes across as either just confusing
or, even worse,
vaguely sexist.

How sexist?

Well you seem to associate competitive ZeroSum WinLose
with strong aggressive patriarchal effectiveness
for defending and conserving health and safety.
These are rational strategic choices for the real guts
of our ego- and anthro- and national-competitive survival;
while Yin is more of the nurturing cooperativist Mom
who has her matriarchal place in a WinWin domestic economy,
but speaking cooperative nurture to competitive power
sounds like patriarchally dominant Business As SexistUsual
to me.

I can see that,
but it does miss my more encompassing Yang/Yin nondualist intent.

not if you substitute Patriarchy/Matriarchy for Yang and Yin,
co-arising respectively
as Original Cause
and Original ReGenerativeEffect.

I’m not sure I can explain
why I see EcoFeminist Game Theory
as nonzero-sum optimizing WinWin
and why that, in turn,
unveils nature-nurture slow-growth resonance,
and therefore evolves regenerative-matriarchal-reverse-hierarchical, re-cyclical therapy
for a too patriarchal
too competitive
Yang-means-NotYin Business as Capitalist-Elitist Usual,
WinYang to LoseYin
zero-sum ecopolitically long-term degenerative history,
embedded within Earth’s larger RNA Yin/Yang WinWin
phylogenic development of EarthTribe’s her creationstory.

Then why bother with it,
if you can’t deductively explain why it is therapeutic
then how could your way of seeing Game Theory
through a bicameral-feminist lens
actually be therapeutic,
even for yourself,
with your deductivist-reductivist rational exclusionary ways.

Because I am nothing without co-arising you.
As bipolar opposites,
in a WinLose survivalist world,
neither of us could be Yang empowered
or Yin nurturing.
Only in our dipolar appositional co-arising WinWin world
of self/other-regenerative evolutionary development
can we find RealWorld RealTime Yang-Left BodyMind with Yin-Right MindBody
more passionately trusting our ecopolitical choices
than when Yang merely overpowers Yin.

Maybe yes,
maybe no.
Your description of how Earth regenerates cooperative,
more than degenerates competitive climates of pathology,
does not move me toward prescriptive therapeutic passion.

I was listening to a feminist writer
speaking of why she is uncomfortable with being labeled as a feminist.
She was clear that, for her,
what feminists are against is Patriarchy,
which is not the same thing as being against men.
What she explicitly stated feminists cannot do
is speak truth to power with and about what all feminists are for,
what all feminists would nurture and grow and regenerate.

For me, and for Game Theory, I suspect,
feminists are for nurturing cooperative global WinWin empowerment
of individually reproducing minds and bodies,
of all Earth’s LifeTribes,
of Mother Earth as icon of healthywealth cooperative fertility.

WinWin NonZero-Sum is our larger cooperative nurturing womb
of long-term, multi-generational, multicultural development,
while WinLose Zero-Sum competitive YangDominant survivalist evolution
is reserved for extraordinary
EitherWinMore Now Or LoseEverything Later
short-term strategic necessities,
to minimize anti-pathic losses and optimize cooperative-democratizing empathic trust Wins.

Tell me again why you are so sure WinWin cooperative equivalence
is Earth’s larger regenerative history,
while WinLose is Yang’s more short-term survivalist
and other-degenerative-negative may be OK with me,

Let’s try this:
Anatol Rapaport’s regenerative-reproductive-reiterative longevity
within a game environment permitting both WinLose competitive,
and WinWin cooperative, bilateral choices,
called Tit for Tat,
always wins every game played
every transaction co-invested
every relationship mirror-passioned,
to only go WinLose
when your Right-Now Other played WinLose selfishly last round.

Corollary: Never defensively initiate WinMore to LoseLess.
If your default setting is always choose WinWin equivalency,
except when meeting a prior WinLose Dominant EgoCentric player
against your mutual reiterative equivalent-cooperative memory
and future-anticipated regenerativity (embodied reproductivity).

If everyone chooses WinWin equivalency
every day
in every ecopolitical game and relationship,
then WinMore to LoseLess players disappear
within a perpetually regenerative
reproductive rights-equivalence game
of both matriarchally cooperative mind and body
Left and RightBrain co-owned and governed
for EcoFeminist/EgoMasculine EarthRights Equivalence.

NonZero Game Theory,
compassioned and nurtured WinWin bilaterally reiterative default
is also BothAnd “Right Brain” appositional thinking,
where Zero-Sum WinLose Game Theory
is EitherOr Left(PatriarchalElite) Brain Dominant,
oppositionally defiant.

So, Zero-Sum WinWin Yin/Yin
and LoseLose Yang/Yang
equivalent plays
and his/herstories regenerate the longest?

And that’s what domestic-within ego/eco-empowering Matriarchs
share with more Yangish AntiPatriarchal EcoFeminists.

We are all WinWin for EarthTribe’s nurturing-flow
of cooperative-regenerative ecopolitical Matriarchal/Patriarchal
not quite so much Yang/Yin,
Global Health and Safety

Well honey
just turn your frame around,
so Matriarchs are, as they always have been, Original Causes,
after all we do carry the regenerative babies,
while the Patriarchs are just another pair of Yin/Yang
Original ReGenerative Effects.

Isn’t that a little like interpreting the Original Intent of Democratizing Constitutions,
as Originally Caused by our ForeFather’s Mothers?

I doubt those who signed these diverse cooperative intentions
for our collective health and safety
also intended to bite the hands that fed them.

That does seem rabidly LoseLose unlikely,
now that you mention it.


Type A Feeling Type B Resonance

I believe it was McLuhan who gave us
The medium is the message.
Here are a few other YangForm with YinFunction appositionals.

Exterior space is interior time,
both survivalist-competitive and thrivalist-cooperative.

The economic cooperative median technician, transactor,
is also the ecopolitical WinWin and/or Win/Lose bicameral messenger.

The ecopolitically competitive capital-fueled media
consume and then reproduce
the most compelling WinElite/LoseNonElite bottom-line message.

LeftBrain dominant Win/Lose survivalist evolutionary reason
is the RightBrain Win/Win treasonously unorthodox Both/And
EliteLeft/NonEliteRight cooperatively-empathic felt thrivalist message.

LeftBrain conscious Elite overpowering NonElite-cooperative media
is the RightBrain unconscious Win/Win appositional frame,
ecological health-development message.

Temporal cause-effect linear systemic narrative ecological/moral media models
are also our RightBrain cooperative reality iconic-dialogical both/and felt interdependent-correlational messages
(notnot = WinWin Positive cause/effect Systemic Tipping Point
of EcoPolitical Median).

Prospect Theory centrist ecopolitical theoretical media
are the Process Teleology WinWin Theological God is Love co-messianic message.

The pathological-survivalist Win/Lose Either/Or LeftBrain Dominant media
overshadows the rational/healthy WinWin ecopolitical action
RightBrain cooperative-imagination co-redemptive message.

The Win/Lose competitive outside threat to survival crisis media
are also the WinElite/WinNonElite cooperative investment opportunity to thrive messages.

The political reality of Yang-noun Win/Lose competition language frames
are also the Yin-verbalization of appositional Win/Win cooperative possibility co-relational DeductiveLeft-balancing-intuitiveRight messages.

To paraphrase Antonio Damasio,
“The [mutual] immune [and appositional co-empathic trust-aptic] system,
the hypothalamus,
the ventro-medial [WinWinThrive/WinLoseSurvive] frontal [bilateral EgoYangLeft-Language/EcoYinRight-IntegralFeelingFlow] cortices,
and the Bill of Rights
[and nation-state contractual Original Bicameral Elite/NonElite Intent]
have the same root cause,
