Courageous Resilience

Like so many of my colleagues,
I have finally started “Community Resilience Reader”
edited by Daniel Lerch
of the Post Carbon Institute.

So far I would not compare “Reader” favorably
with publications available from Permaculture Designers
planting and harvesting polycultural slow-grown outcomes
about how to,
and why bother to,
resiliently ReGenerate.

But, I do share the Institute’s interest
in Systems Thinking,
especially BiLateral Systems Thinking,

Which seems to sweep in Positive Psychology
and Game Theory
and perhaps something like EarthSoul Group Theory,

With its holonic and fractal
and dipolar nondual
its competing nomials
acting relationally as cooperative-competitive binomials,
its line and plane geosystemic developing polypaths
dynamically spiraling 4-dimensional
raveling and unraveling
temporal octave polyphonics
of light as color
and harmonic scaled sound,

DNA of EarthSoul Grace
as also karmic integrity
of sacred ecological gratitude.

I was struck by the last of six essential characteristics
of Resilient Communities,
and Families
and even Resilient WiseElders,
regardless of synergetic Age,

The word-choice in the Resilience Reader
is “courage.”
Courage is necessary,
although not sufficient,
for building and maintaining Resilience.

I agree.
But I believe this choice misses
a required prerequisite practice
to discern differences between Courage
and Foolishly Naïve.

As Daniel Lerch writes
why sustained resilience requires courage,
he seems to most acutely speak
of secular-sacred climaxing,

The big Four climate issues:
ecology and
are each Hugely global,

With devastating consequences for future generations
of at least most Species
if we continue lack of sufficient cooperative courage
to successfully address all Four
within resilience-growing communities
of mutual cooperation.

collaboration is easier
where integrity of mind and body
with EarthSoul
are integratively practiced–
calling for synergetic cooperation
of individual Egos
with extended family economics
and equitable ecological,
positively integrating,
renewable energy.

Sticking with this Resilient Community vocation
requires courage
of growing integrity
rooted in organic cooperativity
of WinWin E-squared thinking,
four-season developments
of deep regenerative learning
and then speaking,
voicing together
and then acting within secular-sacred integrity
of purpose
and meaning,
EarthSoul positive intention.

It takes grace and courage
of integrity
to work cooperatively
with multicultural
polyculturing outcome-oriented people.

It requires grace,
or karma, if you prefer,
of integrity
to succeed
growing synergetic
by fading pathologic
systemic competing cooperative climate issues.

It does require 4-faced courage
of ecological economics
as equitable energy co-investment
born of experiencing sacred integrity,
secular synergy,
acclimated by and
to and
with secular-sacred bilateral consciousness.

We courageously expect Left with Right mindbody integrity
of ourselves
and those we love
by inviting synergies required
to co-invest in transformations,
in multicultural revolutions
of cooperative BothAnd
more than competitive EitherOr thinking,
deductive-reductive dominant,

Continuing to wrap
and layer courage
of integrating systems,
integration of Courageous Community Resilience,
Ego-courage of Yang,
Eco-integrity for EarthSoul Yin–
SecularYang with SacredYin,
rather than without.

Conversation with Chris Santos-Lang

My internal conversation with you, Kramer, Bressan, and all our microbes, together, in brackets.

What “Letting People [and Places, including Earth] Be Themselves” Means

Chris Santos-Lang

In “Humans as Superorganisms: How Microbes, Viruses, Imprinted Genes, and Other Selfish [Mutually-Struggling] Entities Shape Our Behavior,” Peter Kramer and Paola Bressan present evidence that we are [nondual] “not unitary individuals,” but rather “collections of human and nonhuman [RNA/DNA-regeneratively syntaxed] elements that…in an incessant [cooperatively contentious] struggle [default as positive ‘with’ and sometimes ‘negative reverse-synaptic’ against], jointly define who we are.” The research they highlight challenges those of us who want to ‘let people be themselves’ to explain precisely what we mean by “themselves [and ourselves.” If people are [nondual] not unitary individuals, then what could “themselves [as ourselves]” refer to?

The notion that we are not unitary individuals is not new. [Plato didacted the interdependence of intrinsically social beings, and the neoplatonists went wild with that core holonic universal view.] Quantum physicists have pointed out that every atom of our bodies is entangled with the entire universe [inclusive of both Bohm’s Explicate Order and Implicate Order and Buckminster Fuller’s Convex-Positive-Special Case v. Concave-Double-Bilateral-Reverse-String-Temporal Metaphysical Interior Eco-Cooperative TransParent Function-more or less], biologists have pointed out that less than 2% of those atoms remain in us for over a year, and psychologists have pointed out that the mechanisms of our [positive] cognition typically extend beyond our brains to include scratchpads, musical instruments, calculators, and the Internet [and extend back through time toward the distant progenitive-as-regenerative origins of fractal-syntaxed RNA]. Kramer and ressan add merely that our [economic] values [as objectives] and [political] preferences [as subjective progenitors]–what we call our “soul”–is just as entangled with our environment as are our other aspects.

In my opinion, the most compelling branch of their argument is the one relating to microbes. Only about 10% of the various types of [RNA/DNA fueled] cells our bodies require to flourish are [DNA] human. The rest are [RNA-uracil-rooted] microbes. Although most of the microbe studies cited by Kramer and Bressan were conducted on mice, it seems clear that the decisions humans make–how we vote, whom we marry, whether we commit a crime–depend upon which microbes dominate our internal [autonomic] ecosystem at the time. Thus, we can lose our [perception of autonomous] identity–the person our friends know us to be may cease to [monopolistically] inhabit our [mind-]bodies–not just through a lobotomy, but also through some combination of antibiotics and probiotics which irreversibly [or reversibly? I wonder?] tip the balance of power among the microbes within us.

Such microbes might be called parasites of our [mutually parasitic] bodies, but they cannot be parasites of [with?] our selves, for they are an essential part of who we are. Kramer and Bressan would argue that our rights belong to our entire internal [and external] ecosystem[ic landscapes], including those microbes. Laws to protect you [and Earth] must therefore take the form of laws to protect an ecosystem, not necessarily protecting particular microbes, but protecting [mutually parasitic reverse-hierarchically structured, increasingly cooperative metasystemic, with bilateral (concave/convex) spacetime, co-prehensive] balance among them. This sets the stage for shocking reform of our legal system and conception of human [as nature’s spiritua/ergodic/ionic/cogravitational] rights [of freedom to cooperate balancing freedom from struggling-against competition of Other].

Perhaps the paradigm of “selfish-survivalist” genes has been unduly influenced by a culturally jaundiced interpretation of Darwinian evolutionary struggle. But the default setting on Darwinian evolution is positive-regenerative, which would suggest struggling with others to maintain co-gravitational balance, perhaps defining what I mean by eco-normic cooperation. Nature’s biological systems seem to struggle against mutually negative {lose, lose} eco-gravitational disbalancing choices, which might be paradigmed as competitive eco-politics. Struggling is normatively neutral; “selfish” is not, and assumes a monocultural level of competitive-default objectives that is not supported by the regenerative fact that cooperative polyculturally organic nature, life, exists at all.

Summary Notes, Dillenbeck:

Cooperative economic subjects lead toward competitive, politically-healthy, objectives of eco-consciousness.

Struggling with suboptimized relationships avoids over-attachment to a moderately-healthy Win-Lose poly-econormic status-quo.

Struggling against suboptimally dissonant-yet-static relationships avoids over-detachment from a perceived-as-toxically-competitive (over-heated/drama climate) status-quo.

Man/Sha Legends

Jaynes and Fuller + Thurston and Perelman

Excerpt from Dr. Beaver’s Post-Millennial Metric History lecture series:

Julian Jaynes understood the history of bicameral psychology development through the eyes of an anthropological ethologist. He was interested in why nature evolved a natural post-bicameral culture. To understand our function, our purpose, we must discover our underlying Left-Right hemispheric evolutionary understory, our root system of developmentally structured meaning. To understand how our precameral neural system generated our languaged metric spacetime Self and Other, individual and individuating system, is to gain comprehension about the “Why?” of evolution as positive system-formation itself.

At the same time, Buckminster Fuller was researching and designing the positive-precessive and negative-recessive geometrics of Physical Universe “Other,” and the bio-normative metrics of Metaphysical Universe “Self;”  intuitively and deductively aligned and (0) Core Vectored in a prime sustained square-rooted natural-systemic relationship of positive development. Yang-Yin thermodynamic relationship balance found it’s emergent post-millennial (0)-logosed changing voice. “As above, so below” also became “as without, so within” Group Universal Theory.

Later, Thurston and Perelman continue this emerging (0)-soul String Theory with the Universal Theorem that if P=NP as +=(-)(-), then form functions in fractal frequencies, explicately and implicately balanced, in 4-equi-dimensional Hilbert systems (like double-elliptical self-temporally regenerating ribonucleic acid), and in our 4-dimensional Universe of Permacultured Thermodynamic Balance. The Theory of Relativity becomes the Tao of (0) Prime QBit Nomial String-Emergent Co-Relationality (also known as appositional dipolar coincidence and negative correlative relationship).

Our Polyculture Research and Design School of Regenerative Systems continues, as individuals, communities, a species, a natural self-regenerating string system, born of Earth, reincarnating into universal comprehension and speciating gratitude for this nobly, deeply, richly, nutritiously shared vocation.

P = NP because there could be no nomial that is not half of a self-defining and -perpetuating binomial. That would be like having a “positive” without a “negative,” a “convex” without a “concave,” an “Other” without a “Self,” “information” without “dissonant distortion.”

Every QBit spacetime nomial-vertex Yang implies within, temporally “before,” and metrically-spatially “over” its Dark Relationship QBit Vortexed, concaved Yin.


Tao of Universal Maintenance

We are permacultured children of our

Elder Gods and Goddesses.

The Goddess voice within,

nurturing our peace-filled hearts.

The God voice without

speaking through rhythms and patterns

frequencies and functions,

metrics and symbols,

longings and belongings,

longing before language

even before sight,

when “Other”s voice

covered mind-filled aptic Being.


The God voice says

“I am not Other!”

The Goddess voice reminds

“Shall we regenerate each Other?”


And, so it is we rejoin our Elder pilgrimage

conclude our Yangish detour,

re-connect the Oracles

from whom we descend

toward whom we ascend

through left/right-brained research mission accomplishing.


To comprehend our meaning

we would understand positive purpose

dis-covering Other’s logos voice


re-joining what deduction temporarily,



a necessary dominance now outgrown,

toward optimizing comprehensive integrity

of synergy with love,

longing with belonging,

God voice with Goddess graced ecology of mythos,

Yang with Yin.


To re-member RNA’s prime temporally unfolding code

where +U was God

and -C is always Goddess

is not idolatry

so much as Elder Wisdom worship.


We are a polycultured bicameral species

re-covering our sanity,

sustained Golden Rule replacing

pledged allegiance:

I respond with and to others,

regardless of species,

whether I am predisposed to them as “positive” or “negative,”

whether they are alive in this moment,

or in the past,

or in the future,

as I want to be inclusively,



and sustainably treated,

I interdependently and integrally develop our economy,

an ecology of positive vocation and play

communication and comprehension

optimizing our potential abun-dance

as globally polycultured

and eco-balanced players

and singers,

story-tellers and dancers.


Listening to my adolescent sons

I learn to see their world,

an unfairly disturbing alienating place

that has no space or grace for them,

a dirty duty toxic bug-filled threat

best kept outside locked door

with interior womb-like lit by world-wide monitor

and games for joining with each other

this tournament of vast cooperation.

Where “I” am U

and U can -C “me.”


No time to hide,

the God and Goddessed Elders

are justly remembering

their mutually dancing roots.


When hungry [+0=Yang],

dig for tender roots [-1=Yin].

As U becomes C

and C becomes U

graceful dance of generativity.



Taoist Commons of Perma-Passioned Design

Mindful justice and compassion emerge together, not necessarily compassion from justice, or justice from compassion–both evolve together in each culture, like a culture growing across time.

Both justice and compassion emerge from essential human relationships of equity and balanced power with Other, anchored in the universal (0) soul we share, in the same sense that we share RNA across all living cells. Compassion and justice are most abundantly incarnated when they remain balanced between confluence and diversity. Too much confluence breeds totalitarianism; too much dissonance brings a level of individualistic human entitlement enculturation that results in our marginal comfort/discomfort controversies about power deposits, inequities, “power-over” intentions, and concentrated marginalization, and growing inequities, concerns about the future and “hidden” agendas of competitive, exclusionary intent, slowly emerging from their closets.

By way of contrast with this cacophony, our diverse and healthy “Commons” permaculture leans toward cooperative solidarity and inclusiveness when planning, and designing, and using, and harvesting, and planting, and maintaining ecosystems. Abundant healthy “private” culture leans toward self-challenging, stretching solidarity, a type of interdependent diastasis within an encultured spacetime-string. Solidarity and team-building are normative for the Permaculture Generation when planning our messages, homes, and vocations. Our Formative Principle of Polycultural Complementarity includes the functional optimization process beginning with mindful awareness (noticing), yielding facilitation, yielding mentoring, yielding replication, yielding positive-cooperative subordination to the Commons we regenerate together.

In PermaCultural Design, aboriginal cultures, metaphysics, teleology and theology, there is this question, or expectation, usually implied, of Original Intent. This question is more primordial, assumed, enthymematic to the question of life’s meaning or purpose. Original Intent goes back to mindfully discerning the infrastructure of meaning and the purposes we practice, and learned prior to our bicameral capacity for ethical intelligence.

Dr. Robert Norton (Communication & Consequences: Laws of Interaction) refers to the communication of our own Original Intent as enthymematic communication; it is richly, even optimally, effective and nutritious for building and maintaining relationships. Enthymematic means before the syllogism, or meme, or language. It is positively and integrally predicated without having historical explanatory (deductive) support. Without it, no hope for positive relationship emerges. This enthymematic Original Intent  diastatically embraces/embues a word, a message, with efficacy–the power of potentiated relationship. The projected right message for the right person at the right moment balances hope for future confluent response with positive teleological faith in a (0)-centric +SelfIdentity = (-)OtherIndividuation dipolar complementarity (see Julian Jaynes on the ethological and evolutionary function of symbol and language development; also David Abram, The Spell of the Sensuous).

Analogically conflating these diverse paradigms, they each suggest that the Original Intent of information and creation is gratitude as the essential response to the possibility, the hope, the grace the karma of positive/confluent relationship, connection, having a new power with Other. The opposite of gratitude can be non-violent intent, but lead to dissonance, dismay, and even violence within spacetime practice.  Violence and gratitude are mutually defining appositionals, as are confluence and dissonance, Yang and Yin, justice and compassion. Enthymematic communication is rooted in active hope and peace toward confluent power with another. Rich dialogical encultured strings of communication are positively expressed; radiating minimal  negative implications, assumptions, reaction, or intent. They tend to inclusively sweep in their analogical value family–similar models, metric systems of measurement and calculation, design elements, gestalts, coincidental scientific paradigms, and arts and humanities paradigms, into a re-ligioning constellation of Permacultural Enthymematic Awareness, graced ecologies of compassion underlie ecological economies of justice, yield further graced ecologies of positive hope, then faith, then love, then global positive teleological comprehension of what our shared vocation has always been; what was originally intended.

Our positive ethical value system is rooted in the hope of mutual gratitude; active abstinence averse to dissonant violence, emerging from aptic non-violence [kind of a precameral positive-neutral-withdrawn position; the opposite of synaptic–see Julian Jaynes on the evolution of self-awareness out of an original undifferentiated aptic awareness, emotively and integrally (0)-value-centric  +/- neutral.] While non-violent communication is an important step toward inclusive effectiveness, recognizing its more explicated, positive, expression as active-peace (rooted in mutually prehensive grace) brings hope that my flowers are “Other’s” eisegetical flowers and “Other’s” weeds are exegetically known, mutually understood, as “my/our weeds.” We do our best when we all see our mess as doing the best we can to leave the mess behind.

Original Intent in human terms is gratitude. Original Intent in physical regenerative, creative, terminology is increasing harmony, or confluence, or therapy; which also decreases disease, dissonance, toxins, pathology, irrational anomaly, Left-brained dominance, but only to the point where the values of harmony and inclusive diversity are equally expressed as the bond of compassionate fairness, the best we can do within the relative imbalance of currently informed (+) Binomial RealTime, within (0)-soul Vector/Vortex Universal Magnetic Balanced SpaceTime. This is our positive teleological pilgrimage toward ecological and economic equity, where all polynomial information (P) equals implicated reverse-appositional predicated, but currently impossible to RealTime incarnate due to analogical irrationality, lack of confluent temporal-affective Codex  (NP).  We exegetically share these NP weeds and watering them is what we call insanity.

My family is stressed by the constant in-my-face neediness, in-my-ears loudness, in-my-heart oppositional expression of the Fetal Alcohol communication system with whom we live. The house shakes as she bounces hour after hour.

On the other hand, we also have the contrary grace of Angelman’s syndrome in our youngest son’s special practice of living in the present, not judging, but accepting with gratitude the presence of his family as a primal source of nurturing within his aptic nest of non-linguistic awareness. He is our resident guru of gratitude, nurturance, and well-being. When our daughter’s Fetal Alcohol is too much, we do well to spend extra time with my son’s ever-confluent presence, and do as he does.

Even so, too much internalizing of Yin-son’s aptic awareness could lead to an entropic state of hibernation, to affective withdrawal rather than the continual oscillation between the graced positive ecology of awareness and our genetic learning toward a re-balanced fair Commons of active tribal and globally-speciated peace. Learning to fly together, rather than fall, apart.
