Reds Against Queens

Although I am a queer white Queen
let me reassure you
I can be just as mean
or as green,
Mr. Clean,
as any fascist
conjured in your wildest
wettest dream.

I can kick my ruby RightWing heels
and hold my green skanky breath
as long as it takes, tis true,
until you eventually agree
to turn less boring white
and unenlightened blue

It’s true,
I can spread my fascist net
get in line with Straight White Men
with penile envy
of dark-skinned vets
you never could acknowledge seeing
in the singing shower
much less slurping
in your homophobic panic
nastiest place to hide
just yet.

Although a queer male Queen
married to the blackest man
you’ve ever seen,

You may rest re-assured
I’ve clearly found it true
as blue:
Once a person
and a nation
has tried black,
There’s a whole lotta happy folk
don’t care to go back
to refight a civil war
against a white flight bully bore

Supremely self-chosen evangelists,
y’all just help me
deeply snore.

You think
and feel,
know
and spiel,
I’m rotten to my core
because, like your sissy sister
it’s men this male adores

But, if men were good enough
for your sainted mother,
and hers too,
and my two,
let me introduce this thought
to you

It wouldn’t really make you
all that blue
to admit just maybe
all that pleasure
could suit a special man just fine
too,

But, don’t worry,
be happy,
I’m not the least bit hot
for white bread
RightWing you.

Regenerative Life ConScience Lessons

I said to my prodigal son
who stole from me,
it is not competitive economic strategies
that dominantly empower life;

Competitive ecologies and economies
are dominantly decomposing monocultures,
just the opposite of regenerative synergetic praxis
and intent to cooperate polyculturally.
Monopolistic internal cancer-culture
develops into decomposing organic systems
dissonant cognitive and emotive and neural and digestive systems
diseased health and well-being socioeconomic and political systems,
all negatively trending toward closed-entropic,
swollen monochromatic dismay replacing former systemic array.

They are cooperatively dominant economies and ecologies
integrating revolutions
that endo- and ecto-symbiotically evolve
nondual co-arising life regenerating systems.

Competitive critical events,
like stealing from and stolen from,
struggling between painful suffering of ego-self consciousness
and “positive deviant” stress,
self co-arising right-brained redactive eco-consciousness,
contention seeking bicamerally balanced contentment,
joint cooperative ego-eco echoing
waves of double-regenerationed comprehensive consciousness.

Primal stealthy hunt and structure
of cosmological information
evolves binomial-analogical,
bilateral-temporal,
binary-digital,
as polynomial information co-redeems
dual-transparently co-arising
Self+Other discernment.

“All money is a matter of belief”
said Adam Smith,
As all value is energy for relief from self-isolating sorrow,
said NowTime to HereSpace.

Transparent matters of belief
square-rooted in herstoric culture’s transparently coregenerating energy,
co-gravitational relief from dissonating stress.

I love my prodigal son,
perhaps somewhat more than he yet has capacity
to love his prodigal dad.

When Poets Rule the Nest

Everything that is created
disguises a hidden purpose….
A calligrapher writes out his lines
not just for the exquisiteness of the script
but to also convey a meaning.
Rumi (M. Mafi, trans.)

What is the purpose of poetry,
and therefore the meaning of the poet?
Refined prose?
Beautifully flowing style and structure?
Artistic elegance
or the beauty of its truth?

Is poetic purpose the meaning of its language
or the art of linguistic choices?

Of course it must be both,
symbiotically fertilizing and farming each incubating embryo,
functioning and forming, creating and cultivating, regenerate language,
an expression of intuited deduction,
refinement toward exegetically known and felt soul-truth
through eisegetical analogy
ecology
economy of linguistic order, transactions, relationships,
principles of languaged left-brained human nature
dancing prancing functional flow and forms
through right-brained proportional memory encryption
regeneratively intuited octave polycultured memory,
dream-dancing DNA, team-mentoring within each of life’s cells.

What evolves and seeds
plants and pulls
harvests and winnows language,
forms and functions flowing fine flowering frequencies of thought,
understanding and learning?
What comprehends and mentors holistic orthopraxis,
ecotherapy and healing, within and without,
rational and polypathic sanity?

This optimally sustaining
revolutionary bipolar wealth of healthy meaning
for graceful living
and breathing robust prose and language
and healing poetry,
enculturates as metaphysically expressed
through universal laws of language
and cooperative economics of consciousness and mental health,
trans-actively mutual mentoring love,
as words teach us what we think
and thoughts inspire our Way (Tao)
toward optimally inclusive expression.
Meanwhile poetry evolves physically incarnating
through global dancing and singing
in full octave ringing circles
of energy and organic-spiral dynamic mass,
coincident co-arising communion.

Poets conduct dancing lyrics of life through death,
decompositioning regeneration.

Poets prehend self-governance structures
in ways of light more enlightened
than competing partisan pedantry;
which may not be saying much for poets.

Transliterating Laotse on “Rulers”:
Of the best public administrators
The people only have faith,
prehend, that they exist,
or did way back in the day;
The next best they love and praise:
the comprehensively wise polypaths
with CQI regenerative well-being outcomes.
The abusive and tyrannical next they fear;
powerful fools.
And the neglectful next they revile and ridicule;
weak and humorless fools.

When poets do not command the people’s faith,
Some will lose faith in them,
And then they resort to oaths!
But, of the best,
those wisely compassionate cooperative poetic-rulers,
when their outcomes are optimally accomplished,
their full-octaved permacultural design word work done,
The folks all remark,
“We have written and told and danced,
lived and breathed,
colored and cultured it ourselves.”

It is no more or less feasible
to have a mutually subsidiary
and cooperative design and development
sociopathic CEO,
than it is to find a wise and holy
competitive hoarder of wealth and power.

Everything that is created
disguises a hidden purpose.

Creation disguises,
yet implies,
teleology as ecologic.

Polyculture Asylum

She still flinches

when a hand from on high

heads too close to her head,

like an abused undomesticated bitch

with too much oppositionally heated

bipolarity for safe freedom

outside silent medicated silos,

well intended asylums

without her sense of humor.

 

How would I live without her gift

of oppositional comedy?

Where yes means no, or maybe yes

or I’m not sure I grok what you say,

but I see smiling,

gratitude for time, life

mentoring me how we look to Other,

playing oppositional synergetic noticing,

then trusting functional potential

rather than swinging hand

from up,

and back at pain,

lost hope.

 

How would I trust without total faith in her

utterly sociopathic guilelessness?

She could tell a lie,

but why would she care enough

about what you think,

about what you smell,

about what you see, or don’t see, for that matter,

or even feel,

to bother to lie to you!?

 

So, when I ask her,

“Are you more happy now,

or more sad?”

and she opens her full radiant beams

up toward my hands

and lispily adds,

“More happy…what’s that smell?”

I know she would have said the same

even without this smell

I cannot quite sense,

and hope so much is not me.

 

To grow capacity for happiness

and brief glimpses of saner kindness,

like “Make me breakfast, please!”

without even a prompt,

and then the quiet “Thank you” gravy

as I turn my back

to wash her filthy dishes,

regenerates our polyculturing

lives of solidarity,

dancing eye-to-eye.

 

He, Yin son,

without capacity to language,

throws dimples on this dancing song

telling stories he learned by heart,

in shrieks and gales and waves of

rich composting laughter,

spinning wild saliva strings,

radiant Angelman joy.

 

Old Right hemispheric dominant

icon of ecological myth,

ego zero-balanced centric identity,

son of Universal Mediums,

breathes and beats his

well-indented teething ring,

hypnotic alchemistirring wand

drenched with passionate mindfulness.

The President’s EcoChaplain

Sr. Kathleen Brennan, of the Order of Positive Intentions, is the 11th Interreligious EcoMinister Chaplain to the U.S. Congress, where she has been unusually…useful, and apparently ubiquitous. President Fuller is suffering from 2nd-term despondence-syndrome. His Cabinet seems to be leaking, the House is total chaos, and, while the Senate is somewhat more bicamerally balanced, good intentions far outweigh sustainable outcomes. Fuller feels ironically emptier of hope, much less faith that this mess will reweave into a viable fabric within his life time, much less his remaining two years.

When Ms. Fuller, his wife, found him flirting with suicidal ideation, she rather firmly invited onto his schedule a pastoral visit with the Congressional EcoMinister. Although not exactly sure that this appointment would add up to a regenerative future, his not-so-little intuitive voice resonated hopefully with this suggestion because of Sr. Brennan’s reputation as somehow unusually…useful.

President: Sr. Brennan, good of you to stop by. Hoping you might be able to help.

Chaplain: In what way, Mr. President?

P: Well, certainly not that way. Just “Bucky” please. “Mr. President” feels much too heavy right now, like somebody else I never really wanted to be.

C: So presidential Bucky isn’t unfolding as you had hoped, or intended, somehow.

P: I see what you did there, that reference to your Order’s vocational formation. What does that mean, anyway, I don’t recall meeting anyone else from the Positive Intentions Order. Ironic, Washington is a veritable compost pile of good intentions that don’t seem to come together anywhere close to whatever it is you are doing with this Positive Intention ecotherapy, or whatever you call it.

C: You covered quite a lot of ground there, Bucky. Maybe it would be helpful to talk about this disparity between your good intentions and how you define Positive Intent.

P: Well, maybe that’s part of my problem, while I am painfully aware that the road toward good intentions has killed far more people than malignant intent, I can’t work out why, exactly.

C: I doubt you know anyone with malignant intent.

P: What would you call suicidal ideation?

C: I would call that an oxymoron, If you have a positive intent toward self-destruction, you cannot actually incarnate that potentiality without sacrificing the positive polarity of your intended trajectory toward a sustainably peaceful life.

P: My life has been to try to be useful, where most needed, as inclusively as possible. But, it is the inclusivity itself that seems so utterly impossible from this position in Universal Intelligence.

C: Which is…?

P: As I am sure you know very well, the Regenerative System Development Platform has advocated for a cooperative (0)-sum post-millennial Trimtab transition for optimizing global Continuous Quality Improvement.

C: Quite a circular mouthful. So, your positive-teleological position revolves around this (0)-PrimeMutual value system. Is that how you define our “good intentions?”

P: Probably, although I would certainly use a lot more words, and numbers, and generate many polysyllabic hybrids about natural-metric systems development.

C: That does seem to be where you lose your constituency, all the irrational words, numbers, and assumption of malignant intent within the belief systems of those who oppose you, those malingering “Nay!”-sayers.

How do you reconcile your faith that we are all in this mess together with this fear of some proactive, organized, Order of Malignant Intent? While I doubt you have met anyone wearing society’s imprimatur of “Hopeless Sociopath,” I have spent some time in your prisons. A bicameral system with addictive sociopathology issues explores homicide as vicarious suicide. It feels like naked-wild risk, with the prophylactic of clothed hiddenness.

My (0)-sum win-win faith, and positive teleological intent, are not compatible with the view that your constituency would elect representatives who are addicted sociopathologists.  In other words, I wonder if you are confusing Positive Intent toward a regenerative, and sociotherapeutic, economy with Negative Intent toward globally inclusive suicide, as a species, and personally, within yourself.

P:  While I would be vastly relieved to learn that I am confused about the Other-Side’s malignant intent, I just can’t get my data-crunchers to come up with that optimized sustainable outcome trajectory. I mean, for example, if the rich and powerful define Winning the Economy Game as continuing to grow their wealth deposits, then all our synthesized projections for the future show exploding global population of increasingly marginal poverty, to say nothing of what it is doing to the dimming prospects of any (0)-carbon air-bound/soil-bound balanced ecosystem surviving anywhere on Earth.

C: So, your global information system is telling you that we cannot play a Win-Win Sustainable Ecology Game using Win-Lose socio-economic strategies.

Try this metaphor. Imagine that your constituency is a population of lotus flowers, able to physically see each other only above the surface of our Earth-pond. Your Prime (0)-sum cooperative economic platform is the pond’s surface. But, when you plunge down, under the surface, you can see that our species’ (0)-sum ecological center goes deeper down to where we share an emergent root system reaching down, with diminishing, yet still positively-regenerative intentional structure, into Earth’s rich polycultured compost. This cooperative permaculture feeds our root system, so nutrients flowing up have a regenerative infrastructural trajectory for all the individual lotus flowers, and their seed-bearing future generations.

On the other hand, one of the lotus flowers decides that he and his neighbors are more important than some other weedy-kinda-flowers on the other side of the pond, so they start sucking up all the nutrients, watching their distant RNA-cousins wilt and suffer, under the mistaken belief that they are protecting their childrens’ future while they are actually strangling their entire economic and ecological root-systemic capacity. The apparent suicidal ideation of those wilting flower-cultures on the other side of Earth’s pond are a lesson to all of us: Don’t forget that we are all (0)-sum centered where information fully reflects our most inclusive root system. This deeper ecologically balanced plateau emerges endosymbiotic Win-Win cooperative economies for nutrient flow up toward the next generation of lotus flowers.

Your suicidal ideation is your poli-cultural teacher, reminding you that we are all in this together, regardless of all the push-back necessary to bring global peace to the surface of Earth’s pond. You have no more right to choose suicide, Bucky, than a bipolar sociopath has to choose homicide. Choose to regenerate inclusive, cooperative polycultures; avoid malignant competitive monocultural silos of us-v-them, and me-v-we boundaries.

P: Is that your spiritual advice?

C: That’s my eco-equity Continuous Quality Improvement permacultured advice, straight out of the Order of Positive Intent’s prayer book, for greatest effect with least dissonance. We used to call it the Golden Rule, but now we are learning to apply it somewhat more broadly, to how we treat all species, all information, all communication, moments, days, lives, learning, and generations, past, present, and future, as EcoSelf (0) = Grace of Thermodynamic Balance [+ = (-)(-), as Yang = Reverse-Yin diametric restraint, as P = NP]—not so much Self-Centric, and refusing to play nice.

P: I think I regenerate, theoretically, what you did there—and I’m feeling positive, even hopeful, about this analogical way of comprehending QBit spacetime, and bicameral in/ex-formating systems development, and comprehensive coincidentalism, and universalism, and integral intelligence, and sociotherapy, and bicameral psychotherapy, and bioethics, and….

Assuming this might go on for a few hours, Sr. Brennan, EcoMinistry Chaplain, excused herself; without any apparent interruption of Bucky’s positively regenerative, and inclusively analogical, string theory, traveling its regenerative pilgrimage toward self-perpetuating organic compost.

Teacher of Metaphysics Ergetically Needed: Universal Regenerative Vocation Description for Homo-Not-So-Sapiens

Position Title: Interreligious EcoMinistry Chaplain

 

PrimeFunction: Assess the metaphysical systems development trends of

students,

families,

staff,

communities,

constituencies,

policies,

cultural norms,

pedagogy, and

other informative values, assets, nutrient fuels, and resources.

 

Formational under-story/Definition: Buckminster Fuller defines metaphysical as what is not Physical Universe.

 

If Physical Polynomial Universe (P) is –(P), and –(P) is Metaphysical Universe, then metaphysical information is in a reverse-binomial metric relationship with Physical Universe. There can never be one without the other as they are mutually dipolar, reverse correlatively

defining,

illuminating,

boundary-ing,

generative,

formative.

 

When we forget that there is no more, and no less, information value in the meme “Dark Matter” than there is in the meme “Not Dark Matter,” this may be a pathological symptom of Left/Yang hemispheric dominance, out of cultural balance with the Right/Yin hemispheric primal intuition, and nurturance, of a Positive Teleological Original Intent. This dyadically-rooted Original Relationship Intent may be articulated, borrowing from Fuller, and more contemporary Group Theory and Information Systems Development Theory, as

 

+ = Core Value Vector

OVER  [ 3-dimensionally AROUND, 1-dimensionally AFTER]

(-) = Core Vortex

YIELDS [in binary, bicameral, binomial information systems]

+1 = (-)0.

 

Where +1 = +0.50% P OVER +0.00% exformative, diastatic, cooperative prime relationship frequency Constant (C)

AND

-1 = -0.00% exformative aptic EcoSelf-Awareness [see Julian Jaynes on “aptic”] (-U) OVER

-0.50% NP

 

[Also see Max Tegmark, Our Mathematical Universe, p. 198, on information wave-function, bi-elliptical density matrix]

 

-U is not ergetic, so it is radiant reverse-flow, mutually antigravitational so mutually radiant, or grateful to notice each other, endosymbiotic flow trend. A mutually evolutionary “Namaste.” This is the reverse-bias trajectory in mutually redefining relationship with diastatic sustainability (C). –U and C are a Janus-faced revolving informational field.

 

+C/-U yields thermodynamic natural biosystemic balance; harmony.

 

Second Function: Facilitate students,

and their families,

and the human species to sustainably regenerate their own

biosystems,

bicameral information processors,

and/or positive teleological historiCultural assumptions

(also known as faith in several traditions and paradigms).

 

The in-formational, intended YIELD for biosystemic facilitation:

Awareness (seed), YIELDS

Perception (healthy mutually grateful, enthymematic compost), YIELDS

Understanding (developing trend toward mature systemic/organic plant), YIELDS

Comprehension (infusive, fertile, transformative insight event, flower), YIELDS

Positive ergetic information flow functions, optimally balanced for self-perpetuation, YIELDS

polycultured organic information Climax Community seeds of regenerating awareness.

 

Third Function: Story Teller and Designer for a binomially balanced Binary Information Network and an EcoSelf emerging polycultural system.

 

Requisite Formative Definition for the Third Function:

Buckminster Fuller (and Euler, defining the prime linear temporal core of any measurable—informed–universe) define Universal Intelligence as +.50% Yang (+2e) = Positive-Flow Energy = +(0)= Polynomial Time (P)

EQUITABLY BALANCED OVER

-.50% Yin (Negative Energy—entropy) = -(0)= Not-Polynomial Temporal Exformative Trend

 

Where Exformation is Dark, dysfunctional, dissonant absence of relatedness—chaos.

 

Space = E = +1QBit * e²-temporal function

OVER

Time = +/- e = {.50% Yang-flow}/{.00% Yin-flow (0) Core-Soul Vortex}

 

See Group Theory, especially Gregori Perelman’s (et. al.) (0)-Soul Theorem, as applied to a 4-based metric system and/or a 4 equi-normatively balanced dimensional space—without anomaly, smooth structured binomial equi-definitional map of information’s binary striction.

 

This thermodynamically and normatively balanced definition of our Space/Time Universe could be translated into Buckminster Fuller’s geometric paradigm as a synergetically regenerative Metaphysical Universe.

 

Corollary: Metaphysical (NP) flow systems are reverse-metrically appositional to Physical (P) binary information systems. No other Metaphysical/Physical Universe is cognizable by a bicameral mind. In other words, if NP does not equal P, in reverse-ergetic flow relationship, then only NP Universe. If you are able to follow the logic, and/or the analogy, then that might prove that Not: P unequal to NP; therefore, P = NP, in reverse.

 

Universal Intelligence is

 

1.00% QBit Prime Yang/Yin Balance—syntropic trending

EQUAL TO DENOMINATOR

-1.00% aptic dissonance, decay, chaos, dissolution, solipsistic negative, closed system assumption—entropic trending

 

For Fuller, translated through the lens of more contemporary Group Geometric and Biometric and Information Systems Development Theory, the paradigm “Physical Universe” ends where direct sensory reception ends, which is a much more limited definition of Physics than the term “Quantum Physics” would convey. Quantum Physics becomes rather oxymoronic, or behaves oxymoronically, or it means metaphysical theorems and conjectures about physical emergence, or precession, or development, or incarnation, or the incubation metrics for evolving regenerative self-perpetuating information biosystems. Theoretical Physics is about discovering the reverse trend information pattern binomial relationships and maps that have positive information pattern development consonance (flow harmoniously and consistently) with DNA/RNA—4-dimensioned, fractal, information development Codex.

 

Fourth Function: Regenerates stories, movement, rhythms, sounds, music, dance, linguistic and autistic and synergetic remembering, recalling, replanting and reharvesting, revisiting and regenerating, internally and externally, personally and communally, tribally and globally. Inclusively designs events, days, moments, fields, polycultures effectively intending to transform climatic dissonance into an inclusively emergent peaceful and just climate of positive mindfulness.

 

Formational development sequence:

Notice, then listen, then water with compassion, growers and facilitators, farmers and educators, students and leaders, practicing active hope and peaceful presence on behalf of themselves, their tribe, our Species throughout time, and Earth from proto-history through distant future.

 

Perceive, understand, then comprehend, with articulate, carefully-expressed and translated, gratitude:

beauty and goodness,

grace and wisdom,

suffering and loss,

dissonance and dismay,

entropic systemic flow-trends,

the misinformed, disformed, competitive anomalies pushing back

to strengthen our synergetic positive flexibility toward post-millennial bi-hemispheric balance.

 

Fifth Function: Mentor and provide support for Self Care and People Care during this era of transitional cultural, ecological, economic, educational, governmental, violent, climatically critical rebalancing tipping point trend, toward the Holistic Grail of trust as P = NP because +1.00% Yang normatively and equitably equals -0.00% (0) Core Vortex binomially exformed (-e)-function [as any good feminist-compassionate sociotherapist could verify quite a bit more intuitively and eloquently], gracefully spinning within a post-0-Soul Theorem, WWW-networked, Earth-based, bicameral cooperative communication and economic network.

 

Formational Heuristic Whole Bicameral System Assumption:

According to Julian Jaynes, and followers, this emergence of Left/Right thermodynamic, reiterative, regenerative balance was the Original Positive Teleological Intent of our RNA-structured precameral synaptic/aptic information processing system. In other words, there is no new knowledge here; or no new knowledge is intended. Regenerativity Theory only intends to increase the self-comprehension of our bicameral species’ most permaculturally ubiquitous wisdom:

  • Golden Rule applies to all species, all space, all time.
  • Prime Thermodynamic Principle is greatest internal synergetic effect derives appositionally through least external dissonance and loss of gratitude, mindfulness, nurturing, caring, balancing the equity-value of  feminist and otherwise marginalized Yin cultural influence.
  • We are all in this bicameral information processing string together, just as we are all in this binomial natural system external landscape together.
  • As within, so without, so as without, so within.
  • As below, so above, so as above, so below.
  • What goes up must come down, so what comes up, must have gone down before.
  • As before, so after, so as after, so before.
  • As decayed, so un-regenerated, so as regenerated, so un-decayed.
  • As fissioned, so un-fused, so as fused, so  un-fissioned.
  • As sociotherapy grows, sociopathology wilts, so as sociopathology grows, sociotherapy wilts.
  • As dissonance develops, so synergy exforms, so as synergy informs, so dissonance exforms. binary,

The Taoist Doctor of Ministry Proposal

Greetings:
I hope you might let me know if you have any interest in a Doctor of Ministry project that would essentially blend M. T. Winter’s work in Quantum Theology with the positive teleological assumptions implied by Buckminster Fuller’s “Synergetics”, which he defined as equivalent to an ecology of love, and/or grace.
While this may be more appropriate to the Doctor of Philosophy program, I am personally more interested in its holistic and feminist applications to at-risk populations in Connecticut, than I am Fuller’s Theory of Regenerativity, as an obscure, but certainly holistic, metaphysical system.
Whatever you think best for Hartford Seminary, and opportunities to link this dissertation/research project with current Hartford Institute initiatives, is fine with me.
Synopsis:
There appears to be a moment in every religious tradition when human enlightenment comprehends why the threshold to paradise requires absolute ego-purgation. Two metric systems theorists who may exemplify this level of comprehension are Buckminster Fuller and Gregori Perelman, of Group Theory fame. Yet the underlying positive teleological assumption that we are, each and all, better as holonically related to an omnipresent and omnipotent Universal Intelligence is as old and culturally pervasive as the Golden Rule. Doing to Environment as we positively hope, with gratitude, Environment will regenerate me is predicated on a rational belief that each of us is systemically related to Environment. The Universal Intelligence Brahman and the CoCreator Atmanic “Ego-Self” are primally related as
  • Yang to Yin,
  • quarks to leptons,
  • Positive-Deviant +1.00% trend-analysis to Negative-Anomalous (+/-)0.00% Axial Binary Assumption,
  • In-Formation is to Dis-function,
  • Explicated Polycultural Nature is to this implicately (David Bohm) structured PermaCultured Design,
  • Polynomial  regenerative energy string algorithms are to Non-Polynomial dissonantly irrational information dispersion, or decomposition
(0)-soul Vortexed Binomial Universal Balance (see Perelman and the (0)-soul Theorem of Group Theory).
If this adage-meets-analogy way of seeing the prime relationship between natural and spiritual systems proves to be scientifically and metrically accurate, pastoral and sociotherapeutic implications abound. One example of the richly abundant wealth of this perspective is the interesting work within Permaculture Design’s “Interior Landscape” of self- and people-care, and this Design’s economic/ecological equity-normative value system. Nutrient flows through our constituencies may be positive resources and/or negatively dissonant and toxic when sustained, tending toward systemic effects that are increasingly volatile, climatic, chaotic, and, in some teleological perspectives, even demonic. Positively confluent deviance is the opposite perspective from that captured in Cognitive Dissonance Theory. The socio- and eco-therapeutic advantages of a Positive Teleological Assumption run rampant through
  • Positive Psychology,
  • the brilliant Positive Deviance Initiative’s missional effectiveness for developing sustainable, indigenously-resourced, well-being systemic change (www.positivedeviance.org),
  • the Ecology of inductive Grace as profoundly balanced with Natural Law and deductive Logic,
  • and may even offer a theoretical and dynamic explanation for the apparent strength of Feminist Psycho-Social Therapy (see Laura Brown, “Subversive Dialogues” as an excellent example).
Financial incentives for Hartford Seminary may be equally generous.
  • The proposed CT Youth ReGenesis EcoMinistry Project may fit confluently with the Association of Theological Schools’ “comprehensive initiative on global awareness and engagement,” currently funded by the Henry Luce Foundation.
  • An information systemic implication of Regenerativity Theory may be that Polynomial Information equals Non (or “Ex”)-Polynomial Information. A mathematically and teleologically satisfactory theorem proving this conjecture of metric equity could qualify Hartford Seminary for anywhere from one to seven million dollars in Clay Millennium Challenge awards, pending two years of juried acceptance. Research in this area would also be of interest to the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
  • Engaging the Hartford Institute as the research center for the proposed CT Youth ReGenesis EcoMinistry Project could attract both private and public-sector philanthropic and social-investor interest, and serve as an international prototype for synergetically developing interreligious communities of mindful practice and Appreciative Inquiry (www.centerforappreciativeinquiry.net). As an active member of the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation (NCDD), I am certain that there would be considerable interest in many academic departments throughout Connecticut and beyond. This proposal is essentially about dynamically balanced communities of spirit-nature discernment. There are global and national political, legislative, policy, and public governance “practice” implications.
  • Finally, I believe it may place in regenerative context the issue of growing and sustaining faith-filled communities, individuals, and culturally-informed species. In this light, all the current Hartford Institute research projects might be theoretically informed by Regenerativity Theory and its Positive Teleological Assumption.
When I last talked to David Roozen about the feasibility of entering the Doctor of Ministry program, I still lacked two essential resources to proceed.  One is capacity to pay tuition and fees–which remains problematic, although I believe I could generate far more than that through research grants and fellowship income should you be willing to take that risk with me. The other was a ministry site. Last week I was offered the part-time position of Chaplain at the Sustainable Farm School, entering its fourth year with a relocation to the 400 block of Farmington Avenue, West End, Hartford (your neighborhood). SFS is an interreligious parochial–but never provincial–laboratory for youth formation in Permaculture Design, both Interior and Exterior Landscapes.
Attached is my final paper for Professor Roozen’s excellent class on change-agency within communities of faith. In it I took some analogous liberties with M.T. Winter’s Paradoxology, which I hope will resonate; and not cause more dissonance.
