Selfish EgoGods of Delusion

In pursuing nature’s selfish tendencies
to conspire against us,
hapless proletariats,
with growing winds
and floods
and fires
and pollution
and waste
and death of entire species
and loss of formerly healthy ecosystems
and subclimates of wealthier ways and means,

We discover, with Dawkins, a patriarchal selfish EgoGene
and therefore His more sacredly healthy Yin

Golden Principle of BiLateral Integrity,
what has an outside Yang nature
must contain an inside spirit
spawning muses of Synergy

Internally cooperative intent, polypathic
politically reverse-hierarchical
economic communal redevelopment,
with fire-circle improvisations
nurtured by earthy feelers
especially when “it’s just us girls”
under a multiculturing full moon.

The Selfish EgoGod
persuades Himself we have divine permission to colonize lesser folks
and genders
and alien races
with our WhiteNation
self-entitlement powers,
our WinLose retributive justice authority
to lock Her up
for suggesting ecofeminist co-opportunity,
a return to Gaia nutritional worship,
birthing fertile goddess altars
restoring health as justice
with a green cooperative peace revolution.

The Capital God
created us violent sinners of under ego-investment,
LeftBrain committed aggressive zealots
especially when climates, internal and external communion,
Right and Left
grow cancerously Lose to Lose bipolar degenerative.

The Internal Goddess of Integrity
feels we are first and foremost and last
and up and down
and in and out,
eco-kind and graceful,
mutually peaceful,
health described by golden cooperative principles
of Ego/Eco double-binding sacred wombs
before prescriptive naturally deductive rules
as egos of golden win/lose competitions
trending toward devolution,
post-industrious Yang supremacy,
winding down Earth’s climate.

Inside Integrity
still breathes Rahman synergetic positive health trends,
the essential un-theistic
un-patriarchal healthy nation of all diverse climates,
diverse spirits of AnimaMundi,
sacramental organisms,
secularly regenerating DNA,
resilient health systems,
reiterating redundantly intuitive wealth communications,
thoughtful feelings,
feeling lovely and decomposing thoughts
by secular EgoGods prescribing divine rules
for healthy exterior environmental futures together
with sacred EcoGoddess Gaia inside principles
embedded in past sacred descriptors
of healthier ecofeminist herstories,
green through ultra-violet
non-sectarian healthier ecofeminist herstories,

Sacred Green YinStories
of active love,
positive grace and karma,
cooperative faith
restorative hope
mutually peaceful love,

Green stories of past 2020 seen
and heard
and thought
and felt
outside tasted future wealth,
with inside re-experiencing co-present sacred health.


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.
