Life’s Ups and Downs

and communities,
hopefully becoming like extending families,
and that would make them some form of faith communities,
relying exclusively on top-down authorities
to empower today
and tomorrow’s cooperative faithfulness
to ourselves
to each other
to Earth
to the Universe, perhaps,
are also families and communities
bottom-up maturing co-empathic responsibilities
to learn nutritional elements
and synergetic trends we democratically trust
and multiculturally feel
for their optimizing wealth of health potential.

And, those other darker
not clearly articulating our Golden Ruling DNA-RNA dialectal heritage,
and those clearly pathologically distrusted
as anathema and terror’s immunities from growing healthy egos
and evolving nutritiously faithful communities
and revolving Earth’s regenerative spiral revolving trends,
bilaterally co-arising
ego/eco consciousness of Earth
as sacramental cooperative fulfillment
further seeking positive faithful WWW promise,
Win self-economics
Win Other ecologics
Win Earth ecosystemic
sacramental spacetime
0-sum co-investing moments.

What cooperative fulfilling authority goes down
equivalently invites and resonates with
co-empathic promising responsibilities
emerging from below shared day dreams,
not nightmares,
rising synergetically up.

Climates of health recycling down
so landscapes of wealthy global democracy
rise revolutionary
and sacramentally
and cooperatively
faithfully up.

Earth’s changing from above climate
seeps and sweeps up and down
into each community’s communicating climates
seeping down and sweeping up
ectosymbiotic and endosymbiotic
creolizing and transubstantiating
into and around
each individual’s internal climates
of sacramentally faithful experience
and desecrating despair, dismay, competing dissonances,
and, so, thereby,
vice versa,
preferably more actively cooperative WinWin
than reactively competitive WinLose
capitalistic and patriarchal
over-extended gamesmanship.

as sacramental communities
cooperate best both sweeping up
and seeping down together
of and for tomorrow’s greatest faithfulness,
and minimal monoculturing
climates of despair.


Cloud of Knowing

I believe it was Buckminster Fuller
who first posited
a prime appositional,
like Yang and Yin,
but his was:
Energy is to physical nature
as Information is to metaphysically languaged systems.

if we were to add the Yin and Yang
of this positivist-regenerative observation,
we could further nuance regenerate with degenerate:
Energy is to cooperative nurturance
and, therefore, Entropy is to degenerative chaos,
as Information is to regenerative ecosystemic co-intelligence
as fractal ExFormation (dialectal decomposition, creolization, reversion, spacetime reversal, inside-outside)
is to dualdark bicameral ego/eco-systemic consciousness.

we might further speculate
that organic nature
convex (yang) unfolds
following RNA/DNA fractal-fertile deep-learning functions,
revolutionarily and syncretically co-resonant
bilateral concavely (yin) infolding,
back and in toward Left-Right ZeroSum ecobalancing embryonic climates
of regeneration OVER inside degeneration/denomination;

Three dimensional space
over one bilaterally dimensioning
spiral revolving
Yang/Yin flow and ebbing

should all the above make sensory-neural nurturing sense to you
as to me,
especially if also with you,
then this might help us understand why
those theologians
and teleologists
and ethologists
and psychologists
and ecologists
who open their discussions to the broadest cooperative points
of appositional dipolar compare and contrast,
such as Western PreMillennial Capitalist v NonElect
and Eastern PostMillennial Syncretic-Creolic NonDualist,
hypostatizing hypotheses of co-arising co-gravitation
are those most articulate
about this climate health revolution
of Beloved Cooperative Communities
within wealthy interdependent bio-regions,
at these post-modern invisible in/ex-formational hands
of bilaterally balancing nature-spirit intent.

If we can learn to sing together
in resonant harmonies
of and for multiculturing creolic languages,
and we have and can do more,
must do all we can of such ecotherapeutic singing,

If we can learn to dance together
in flowing cooperative steps,
rather than competitive ecopolitical locked-up frozen marches
over and around each others’ steps,
and we have and can do more
of this ecological flowing dance,
and must,
because we can,
then we can also use these same skill sets
for achieving more resonant climate-minds and landscape-bodies
deep learning Earth’s CoOperative PermaCulturing Opera.

We can each capture learning to grow into re-invested loving
as cooperative Earth-owners and Golden Rule democratizing lovers,
we do in fact already own and govern and nurture Earth;

But, apart,
divided by competing silos of monoculturing ecopolitics,
we own nothing but a future of further potential ego/eco dis-equilibrium,
Yanging against Yin
rather than YinYang-Squared-Dialectal WinWin
through our song and dance gaming wu wei
in-between full-octave harmonics,
midway opulence,
multiculturing-creolizing further revolutioning evolutions
of zero-sum ecopolitically resonant spacetime.

If we can sing and dance cooperatively
better than competitively
then we can also love and learn
and work and play cooperatively,
better than competitively,

We sound better together
as Earth’s global gospel choir,
and look better too,
than we do as Earth’s mutually mistrusting post-climatic decomposing
ashamed of our own rifle-aiming mess,
rabidly overpopulating pestilence,
instead of resonant opulence.

We really only have the one bilateral balancing choice
for healthy wealth.
I mean, who would choose pestilence
over cooperative opulence
other than a cloud of unknowing
abused and neglected sociopath?

Ergodic dialectals
are ionic balancing binomials,
as good humors and climates
are ironic balancing ecologicals
and analogically dipolarish,
fractal deep becoming zero-sum co-intelligence,
hybrid nature-spirits
of each more cooperatively opulent ego/eco

We all breathe out Yang
and WinWin Yin in
this same bilateral double-binding acclimating way,
just as our sacred bicameral hearts
each and all beat diastolic opening
and diastatic to close cooperative/competing co-intensions
BothAnd together.

I believe it was Bucky Fuller who first LeftBrain languaged:
Ergodically reiterative energy is to bilaterally communicating physical nature
as Ionic-Bionic In-Ex Formation is to metaphysically languaged systems,
marching toward cooperatively responsible
and responsive co-ownership
to and for and of flowing synergetic interdependence.





Paradise ReForested

Seeds, like mentors, are germinators.
Generation wears two faces,
as does development,
positive and negative,
regeneration and degeneration.

Some seeds are healthier than others.
Some are positively deviant, robust,
and others are negatively deviant, flawed,
missing an exegetical median mark,
some would see as sin,
which can be forgiven within oneself
by learning to forgive others
for our collective negative deviant seeds.

Bill Mollison exhorts us to a global therapeutic project:
Reforesting the Earth
is one of the few tasks
left to us
to express our humanity.

This feels true and right and good,
hopeful and prophetic and WinWin,
and yet mysterious and incongruous.
It raises questions,
like a good parable,
and wisdom literature in general.

I can think of a time within nation-state histories
and even extended family,
tribal development stories,
when some wise patriarch might have said:
Deforesting this place
is one of the few tasks
left to us
to optimize our divine-humane potential.

Did we really have to deforest
to develop a FiveStar FirstWorld Class
of healthy humane curiosity and deep ecological wealthy learning
to reforest this Earth
to re-express, and perhaps forgive ourselves,
for our own LeftBrain dominant historic development?

And, whether so or no,
was Original Forest logos
also Original Sin mythos?
Risk and opportunity,
degeneration and regeneration,
germinating potentials within each of Earth’s soils
and nondual mind-bodies
co-arising LeftYang-RightYin WinWin souls.

I wonder what Mollison means
by “one of the few” assignments.
And whom or what he believes left these therapeutic tasks
for our healthy-wealth fulfillment.

I like to think and feel perhaps few,
in a prime-relational sense,
is two;
that calculating deforesting harvest
is a reverse hierarchical face
of harmonizing reforestation,
a resonant full-octave restoration
of Paradise Lost
through LeftBrain dominance
over RightFlow relational resonance,

Of deductive deforesting as numerator
with inductive bilateral reforestation as re-denominator,
differential dialectal fractal-fractions
sung and danced through matriarchal herstories
of MotherEarth with consort Father Son,
dominant radiant Yes of Light
with reforesting harmonics
of dualdark EarthDay reforesting dawn
greeting EarthNight climate dusk.

Forests of seeds, like therapeutic acclimators, are germinators,
embryonic terminators
trending toward already forgiven regenerators.


ReCreating MaryJuanita

I noticed that one of the Kennedy patriarchs,
probably a Joseph or John or Ted
or Tim or Matthew or Mark or Luke,
Why do they all begin to look and sound the same to me?
Anyway, one of these informed and educated and good guys
responded to decriminalizing ingestion of THC,
cautioning us regarding potential public health hazards.

While I share some of these bleary and yet specific concerns,
Mr. Kennedy and I do seem to view these potential pathological influences
through two quite different frames of reference.

He approaches dangers of THC influence
in contrast to a population that would otherwise presumably ingest
organic goat’s milk and wild honey.

I see the prospects for a THC cooperative addicted society
in pleasant contrast
to our current alcohol degenerative indigestion
addicted to bipolar competing ecopolitical disculturation.

From a public health perspective,
given only a choice between THC or alcohol decriminalization,
the evidence of history appears to vote
for the more regenerative THC.

if we could addict honey bees to THC pollen,
and goats to voraciously forage on marijuana fibers,
and we became the land of goat milk and THC honey;
that, I suppose,
would be so much more
our healthier wealth of opportunity.


The Best Way To Go

When I was a new seminarian
I had a favorite parish priest mentor
who told me the best way to die
is while having an orgasm.

I wasn’t sure if I could ask
why he was so exclamatory sure
of his nakedly compromising position.
I did not really know him all that well,
although he seemed to be a swell up kind of Father.

Perhaps I looked a bit nervous
because he hastened to reassure me
the reason he is enamored of orgasms,
of diastatic experience,
is because they transcend our language boundaries
between Eros and Agape.

Orgasms are ecstatic climatic events,
warm full-bodied memories
of mindbody interdependence,
of holistic cooperative ecopolitics within
every organ and cell,
muscle and happy little ego-subsystem
groaning out this profoundly universal Yes!
with both LeftBrain audio-visual Eros
and RightBrain universally interdependent
neural-sensory climate of Agape.

I didn’t know what to say to this bicameral-sexual therapy.
But, if this is an option for how to die,
it does sound like the only good one I have ever heard.

So I said that.
And then my mentor suggested I go home
and practice
living that same way.

Note:┬áTo Fr. Gary Kennedy, who is not on the Catholic Church’s Great Wall of Shame, yet also not on the Church’s Great Wall of Patriarchal Wisdom, where he might more ecstatically reside. With warm gratitude.


Born to Litter

Is it only coincidental
that pigs have litters
and those who carelessly litter
are Earth-trashing pigs?

Not pigs, dear;
Just not mindful people,
without mature eco-consciousness,
with militaristic habits
of throwing paper and plastic and metallic missiles
out onto our EarthMother Commons,
for all to see and smell and feel badly about,
to suffer tragic loss and deep sorrow.

Like pigs, right?

Well, I suppose
a pig would not distinguish
between ego- and eco-consciousness.
But why would you stigmatize pigs
as opposed to other quasi-domesticated animals
like horses or cows
or sheep
or chicken littles
not the least worried that the climate is failing?

Because those you mentioned don’t have litters.

Yes, but dogs and cats might have litters

and you know how much fun it is
to step in their stinky pooh.

I see your point.
Yet still I feel
this must remain a coincidence
of LeftBrain labeling language.


PolyCulturing Education

Polypathic conversation with David Holmgren:

Today it is common to hear the suggestion
[cooperative] education and [therapeutic] training
is the [mindful] key to allowing people to contribute
to a more sustainable [ecopolitical] future.

Although I recognize the value of formal education and training
and [especially cooperatively-owned and managed] communications media,
they are also part of the [competitively commodified] problem
[and therefore also keys to more resonantly cooperative resolutions]
preventing [LeftBrain dominant] us from a more direct [RightBrain-inductive] connection with,
and [bilateral] experience of,
the natural[-spiritual co-arising] world
through [inductive/deductive bilateral] observation
and [bicamerally balancing] experience
[and work/play of curiosity/imagination].

Much could be said about how we need to modify formal education
and the [competitively capital-hungry] media
so they can contribute better to the [humane-sublime
creolic] revolution,
but we need to recognize several fundamental
[Leftbrain dominant enculturation] problems.

almost all education,
and especially higher [yet not necessarily deeper] education,
is [redacted] knowledge from secondary [audio-visual] sources,
interpreted through [competing specialist] frameworks
of [limited inter-relational] understanding.

Academic [exegetical LeftBrain dominant] training
that requires every idea and concept be referenced to refereed published [exegetical LeftBrain dominant] sources
is the extremity of this [conserving rather than transitioning] approach
to [reiterative monoculturing memorization
of what once was normatively true
and necessarily so,
yet perhaps not optimally or even sufficiently true
for all times and spaces and complex systems
and so yet hypothetically false,
BothAnd recreatively tensioned with EitherOr.]

information technology has accelerated the speed of circulation,
and reproduction [rights] of [nutritional/toxic] information.
The [commercial] professional packaging
of [LeftBrain reductive] secondary experience
in [massively cooperatively networked] media
promises faster and better ways
to [LeftBrain access others’] learn[ing].

For instance,
in comparison to the wildlife [ecological healthy/toxic] observation skills
and original [6-sensory-neural
(sight, sound, hearing, smell, touch, internal positive/negative feeling nutritional spectrum)
bicamerally polypathic ecosystemic]

almost all formal scientific education is based on bottom-up reductionist [STRUGGLING EITHER/OR AGAINST
top-down bilateral deductivist/inductivist BothAnd] thinking
[screening out cognitive-affective dissonance,
negative unresolved non-resonant psychology].

While the [cooperative multi]cultural harvest from specialized reductionist thinking over the last few hundred years
has been great
[and continues to accelerate],
it is the [cooperatively self-organizing] integration
and [creolizing] cross-fertilization of [regenerative Yang-cause] concepts
[Yin-nurturing/caustic BothAnd
matriarchal implicated affect] ideas
that is now providing the most fruitful results
for dealing with the [Yang/Yin eco]systemic [landscape/climate] problems
of the [regenerative-less/degenerative-more] environmental crisis.

Much of this [positive co-relational co-arising] integrated [comprehension]
is happening outside [formal] educational
[pathology-oriented, continuing competing-issues committed] institutions
[with highly competitive ecopolitical survival issues,
including chronic capital reinvestment].

information and communications technologies
are increasing these [cooperative paid-forward, co-redemptive] possibilities,
although this benefit is over [LeftBrain dominant] content,
and [redundantly tedious] replication over [re]creation;
[degenerative reiterative feedback loops
rather than cooperative self-governing
regenerative double-binding
ego/eco-conscious loops].

and most problematic of all,
formal education at the higher [yet not deeper] levels
is focused on digesting massive amounts of information
within the [slow-growth evolving creolizing] constructs
of separate [and alarmingly unequal] disciplines
and cultures
(such as [Left-Yang, EitherOr] science
and [Right-Yin, BothAnd] art
[nurturing octave flow-fractal regenerative functions,
like 4Base fractal/crystal group/game math,
and 4Season phylogenic reproductive rights and wrong]).

This education lacks wholistic [therapeutic] integration
with [health-wealth ecopolitically oriented] living experience
and its insights and truths often make little [shallow] impression
on the underlying [Right-YinFlow nurturing-absorbing-resonant] structures
of [comprehensive] understanding
and [internally felt committed] belief [as co-empathic trust]
created by [LeftBrain might makes right] family [conservative-supremacist] upbringing,
mass [consuming dominating producer] media
and popular [nationalized ecopolitical WinLose competition] culture.

In many fields
we find the [global glory] solutions
to [ecological within and without] problems
are known [and felt]
but are not [regeneratively] applied
for a myriad of specific [LeftBrain constipated cul-de-sac] reasons.

The core of these problems is [competing mutually mis-communicating and therefore gradually degenerating exegetical-monoculturing belief systems]
which people appear to [conserve to defensively] hold
have not been [creolic EitherOr-evolution/BothAnd-revolution] integrated with
and [regeneratively-therapeutically-cooperatively] reinforced
by their [Left-Right bicameral polypathic
ecologically ecopolitical] personal experience
[of regenerative health and competitively degenerative pathologies].

Note:┬áTransliteration of David Holmgren’s “Permaculture Principles & Pathways”, p. 20; adding in seasonings from Edward DeBono’s bilateral thinking and Buckminster Fuller’s synergy systems theory, and, of course, layering LaoTse generally across Yang-Yin as Left-Right creative bilaterally cooperative nondual dipolar appositionality.

Polycultural Education as if multiculturing double-bound Earth lives and deaths WinWin CoOperatively matter for health-wealth optimizing outcomes.
