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.

Eight Folds Toward Paradise

This home unveils my life’s liturgy.

I cannot drink fully through eyes and skin without this place,

my lifetime rebirthing space.

This story starts with an eight-year old boy who knew there was something different about him.  He worried that it might be different in a way like boys are different than girls, but this difference had no name.  An alone kind of different.  Possibly a “special” kind of different, or a “differently-abled” kind of difference, but maybe just a bad kind of different.

He worried about it a lot.  But, mostly he put it away and just went on as-if he were different from other people like his brother was different from his two sisters, and his younger sister was different from his older sister, and all four of the kids were different than his Mom and Dad, who were kinda the same, in a creepy sort of “we are the adults” kinda way.

His sister Kerry was also his best friend.  They even looked like twins, lotsa people said so.  Maybe it would be better if his best friend were his cousin Steve, cause he was a boy, after all, and Steve was born just a month after him.  He liked Steve, but he usually had more fun with Kerry, even though she was two years younger.  He liked making her happy, protecting her, helping her play with her dolls, being “Dad” while she played “Mom.”  They were better together, on those sun-drenched summer afternoons, on a wool plaid blanket covering the prickly grass, than they were apart, usually.  Sometimes he would forget to be kind, but Kerry blossomed with trust, and only seldom needed help from Mom to be able to forgive his lapses.  After all, he was just a boy, and she instinctively knew that boys are sometimes difficult, and different.

One day the boy was riding through their south field on the back of the tractor while his dad drove back toward the barn.  He saw an owl whose wing had tangled in the barbed-wire fence.  His dad didn’t seem interested, but he was riveted.

Later that day he had time to walk back to the fence, carrying a huge boot-box he found in with the gardening supplies.  He really didn’t expect the owl to still be there, but it also seemed like the owl was there to meet him.  Still quite distant, coming over the rise in the field, he could see that the owl’s wing remained hanging from the barbed-wire, but the rest of the owl was lying on his back in the fence row.

He was approaching gently when the owl’s enormous eyes popped open.

“What took you so long?”

“My dad didn’t think I could help you.”

“Well, he was right about that, but I have a message for you.  Put me in that box you brought but please make a bed of grass in the bottom first. Did you bring any water?  I am dying of thirst here.”

“No, I didn’t think of it.”

“Did you bring anything you can put water in?”

“Just my hands.  I can carry a little in my hand, from the creek.”

The boy did that, making several trips.  While most of the water ran off the owl’s chest, he did open wide and seemed to be swallowing OK.

Not being able to hear the owl’s voice anymore, the boy figured the owl had fallen asleep, so he carried the now surprisingly heavy box, in stages, back to the tool shed.  Then he went to the kitchen to see if he could come up with a few scraps of meat, or catch some flies, because surely the owl must be hungry too.

But, the owl continued to sleep until the next day when the boy carried the heavy box out of the dark tool shed and into the shaded outdoors, when those amazing eyes popped open again.

“Did you find any hamburger?”

“No, just a few dead flies.”

“No thanks, really.  Never mind, just more water please.”

The owl did take more water, but, to the boy’s great dismay, he could see that swallowing was much more difficult this morning, slower, kinda scary for the owl to get it down and continue breathing.

“Enough for now.  I want you to bring a shovel, take me to the highest point in the cowlane, and dig a hole large enough for this bed of grass, me, and my wing.”

The boy was heavy with grief.  Meeting the owl had created a bubble around him that not even his sister Kerry could share.  He had wanted to tell her about the owl, and he had shown her the owl, but she was astoundingly disinterested; no more than briefly curious about seeing the magnificent Great Horned Owl.

“Boy owls must be stupid to fly into a fence.  You never see girl owls behaving like that.”

Wow, six years old, and already a militant feminist, thought the boy.

Anyway, he decided against telling her that he could hear the owl’s voice in his head because he was quite sure she couldn’t, even when the owl was awake, and he worried that hearing this voice might have something to do with how he was different.  Maybe that was why the owl had a message for him.  He felt less alone, and afraid, with that hope.  But now, one day later, he knew he was going to have to say good-bye to his owl.  This owl was not meant to be a pet.  He was a messenger, and soon he would be alone again, with his message. This already made the boy very sad.

Even worse, it was unthinkable that he had failed to give this noble creature life.  The planet should be weeping with him, but the sun continued to shine, and the spring blossoms continued to beam their pinks and yellows.  The grass continued to be lusciously green.

As the boy was finishing his horrible digging, the owl opened his eyes and caught him sobbing.  Now he was embarrassed, and sad, and confused.

“Don’t be sad, you did your best.  That’s all I was hoping for.  Yes, I am about to leave you with your message, but for me that is ‘mission accomplished.’  In all the important, however invisible, ways, many more like you will always be with you.  You will feel alone, but you will not be alone.  You will think you know how and why you are different, and you will be right, eventually, but not until you are quite old, like me.  It will take the accumulation of considerable wisdom to understand your message, and your purpose.  Unfortunately, your species has become ensnared in accumulating knowledge, while slighting the overwhelming significance of wisdom.  But, that brings me to your message, a prophecy, actually.”

There will come a time when all life on Earth is in danger.  At that time great powers have arisen, civilized powers.  And although they waste their wealth in annihilating one another, these powerful nations have much in common.  Among these common things are weapons of unfathomable destructive power, and scars caused by separating a productive life from a worthy life, separating the value of a human life from the value of a worthy life, separating the value of caring for human life from the esteem of a noble and wise life. It is just at this point in our history when the future of all beings seems to hang by the frailest of threads, that you will find the Shaman Warriors.

You are a Shaman but you cannot go to where we live because we do not have a place.  Your Shaman Tribe exists in the hearts and minds of all Shaman warriors.  You can’t tell whether someone is a Shaman warrior just by looking at her or him, because these warriors wear no uniforms or insignia.  They have no banners to identify whose side they’re on, no barricades on which to climb to threaten enemies or behind which to rest and regroup.  They have no home turf.  The Shaman have only the Wo-Man Dream of the civilized powers to move across and act on:

Step out with me,

if you would be so kind,

on my melting island of ice.

 

Full-heated summer sun

feels good on our backs and shoulders

and faces turned down and in to hunt,

to fish.

We start this day with gratitude

for warmth of light and life.

 

Empathize with polar bears,

or try to.

Not merely sympathize;

actually empathize,

step onto their/our natural icy place and time,

noticing ways bears bare our own lack of global justice

for them

and for ourselves.

 

Together,

we fear human rights and justice

are not ecojustice enough

to sustain optimized and inclusive life

and Continuous Quality Improvement investments

with minimized risk of loss.

 

We feel like we live on a shrinking island

of hopelessly competitive despair.

 

We feel climatic heat melting our angry and fearful interior

and exterior landscapes of nutritional potential.

 

We fear drowning in an understory

of melted cooperative permacultural boundary waters

of natural systemic immersion,

swimming in an icy northern sea

of metamorphic submersion.

 

We hunger for a lost hunting paradise

of cooperatively synergetic love.

 

We feel homeless unto a catastrophic miraculous death.

 

Death dreams in constellations of encultured space,

dynamic time invested in frequencies of place,

coincidental patterns,

gravitational rhythms,

co-operative flow…

 

Life is what we absorb each day,

invest in,

divest of each night.

 

Time is what regenerates future

and decomposes past.

 

Economic balance is found in nutrients we produce,

not toxins we consume.

 

Eco-logic ratios and rations

portions and proportions

entifies and gives and dispossesses

rectifies and takes and coredeems

plants and harvests

winnows and composts

thins and nurtures

blames and praises

stimulates and responds

causes and effects and affects and infects and defects and reflects

dislikes and values

lives and decays

orders and confuses

confluates and dissonates

frowns down upon and within and smiles up and without

curses and blesses.

 

Would it not be good to balance justice

so everything adds up without remainder

double-bound smooth-structured perfection,

mutually justified margins

balancing all sides of any story and issue,

correctly aligned judgment,

a logically normative standard,

a natural law

inclusive of all Earth’s living, breathing values and nutrients,

and elusive of all EarthTribal pathologies

and wilting economies,

failing gardens,

competing losers,

summer seared deserts

as polar bares?

 

Our ecotherapy calls for more cooperative gardens

and recreations,

and employment,

and lifestyles,

and revolving rhyming analogical norms

for economic behavior,

Golden practice and intent

emerging from ancient threads of transmillennialism.

 

Synergetic Polyuniversalism,

Post-Taoist multisystemic analysis

of Nature Balancing Time’s Right

to struggle and suffer

toward defining,

harmonizing,

effecting,

regenerating our metamorphic root co-operative system

of, for, and by Time’s Equi-Valent Justice,

in four primally dipolar/bipolar fractal dimensions,

like DNA,

to site our most regenerative example,

a universal story

found in each permacultural cell:

We want to cooperate an eight acre rotting estate and convert it into an ecovillage. As we pass by the half dozen log cabin structures, built around a rheumatic, yet lushly charming, apple orchard, we head toward our future nearest neighbor.

Actually, our only future neighbor residing within a mile of our wildly abandoned estate. We want to represent the Solidarity Ecovillage intention to this neighbor, and invite her to participate in a permaculture design interview.  Basically, we want to find out if she is with us, against us, couldn’t care less about us one way or the other, and, if her reaction suggests an ally, to include her, and her aspirations for her incarnation, in this Global Ecovillage development plan.

The neighbor’s name is Gaia. Gaia What, no one seems to know. There are rumors, mostly benign and gentle, that she roots back to the Iroquois, and is eccentric in a shaman-ish way. This should be interesting.

Gaia: Who are you?

Eco: Our names are O-liver, and we are here as your future neighbors to learn how we can be good neighbors for you.

Gaia: I have been expecting your question for rather too long. It is a good question, an important one, so I wrote you some suggestions about what I think would be helpful.

Here, take it with you. If you have any further questions after reading it, you are welcome to return any time. My home is your home.

And with that, Gaia handed us a scroll and gently, but firmly, almost abruptly, closed her heavy door.

Eventually we turned around, headed back toward the orchard where we knew of the perfect log, and the perfect vista, for reading–most anything–but especially this Gaia scroll.

The late-morning sun radiated gentle October warmth as we read:

Dear Neighbors,

Thank you for your compassionate intent to practice remembering that we are all in this mess, and this potential paradise, together.

 There are 4 interdependent principles in learning how to live regeneratively on this planet.

 The first of these you have heard from land use planners, real-estate agents, community and economic developers: Notice the potential highest and best use of all resources and nutrients, all property, all people, all species.

The second is similar,but moves from noticing, toward understanding, from using to sustaining. How can we achieve the most abundant effect, and affect, with the least effort, cost, dissonance, chaos?

Combining these first two principles results in the Golden Rule of Regenerative Development: Optimize integrity by deeply learning inclusively holistic potential. In other words, intend and practice today what we all want to wake up to tomorrow.

Our greatest, most holistic, most resilient, most regenerative potential is discovered through Deep Listening together, the intentional practice of compassion. Deep Learning begins with deeply listening, noticing, and slowly, integrally, inclusively discerning a shared vision of optimized potential intent. This is true whether your shared vocation is to build a regenerative interior landscape, or exterior landscape. It is optimally and inclusively and resiliently true if your intent is to build a regenerative interior/exterior landscape together. Our species’ “Commons,” like the Commons of your Solidarity EcoVillage, expands inward and outward, fertilized by rich, abundant, diversity when we notice, listen, and fully value our current situation.

 Fully valuing our current potential brings us to the 3rd principle of Regenerative Development: the Principle of Complementarity. Our Species’ Interior Landscape AND Exterior Landscape are complementary perspectives on one thermodynamically balanced NATURAL Landscape. Humans, at our best, bicamerally learn about our profoundly balanced and harmonious potential within a richly nutritious ecology of nutrients, energy. The “essential orientation of human nature,” to borrow a phrase from the 14th Dalai Lama is scientifically and religiously emerging as the essential orientation of all nature: thermodynamic balance is an Exterior Landscape way of cognizing the theo-dynamic balance of our Interior Landscape.

 What we are trying to become, our teleological, and thermodynamic, mission as Earth’s bicamerally-reflective Species, with least effort and cost, suffering and resistance, violence and dissonance, is our highest and best regenerative potential. The most abundantly valued vocation for every intentional community, every faith community, every school, every farm, every government, every recreation center, every health care facility, every human service agency, every family, every individual, is to become the very best balanced Regenerative Research and Design Center possible, given current situations, developing compassionate understanding of complementarity between our natural Interior and Exterior Landscapes.

In our inclusive Research and Design ecology, we recognize communication and thought as information nutrients, with the potential to build up or dissemble, to increase confluence, or contribute to dissonance. The Principle of Complementarity is both spatially and temporally dimensioned. Its spatial dimension spreads across the Interior and Exterior natural landscapes. Its temporal flow dimension is either toward confluence, or toward dissonance, with complementary balance defined in physics and systems theory as intrinsic thermodynamically-valued polarity. What goes up must come down. What goes in must come back out.

 The intrinsic value-balance within all religions, all faith paradigms, follows these same complementary patterns: As before, so after. As above, so below. As within, so without. If Self, then Other. If Yang, then Yin. If Becoming (regenerating), then Being. If sociotherapy, then sociopathology. If sociopathology, then sociotherapy.  If confluence, then the potential for dissonance. If dissonance, then the potential for confluence. As theo-dynamism within, so thermo-dynamism without.

The 4th principle of Regenerative Development is the Principle of Holistic Subsidiarity. In systems theory, optimized abundant values matriculate up from integrated/confluent individuals and families, through neighborhoods, to communities, sub-regions, regions, and globally inclusive ecological integrity. There is no such thing as a “natural” division between sustainable economic wealth and ecological integrity. Economies are value-transfer systems within the ecological health of our relationships.

The Principle of Subsidiarity is commonly understood, and sometimes practiced, as retaining choice authority at the lowest effective level of function. The form of our self-governance wisely follows functional practice and intent. It is most holistically efficient to leave our current effectiveness at the lowest level of functional autonomy. If I find my life and environment to be richly nutritious, satisfying, meaningful, fulfilling, then it would be a violation of this Principle of Subsidiarity for the Solidarity EcoVillage to even intend to fix what I believe is not broken.

Our current suffering has to do with those times, places, situations, when there is disagreement about which is most important, the Principle of Holistic Subsidiarity or the Principle of Complementarity. For example, if I am a cancerously expanding tumor within your brain, then you and I would probably disagree about which is the currently effective lowest level of functional autonomy. If I am a parasitic species, overpopulating and devouring a planetary ecosystem, causing great trauma to the planet, such as climatic dissonance and the extinction of species diversity, then the Principle of Complementarity reminds us to listen to our pathology because it is our complementary and wise instruction.

 We recognize communication and  thoughts as nutrient-value events. The lack of healthy, balanced nutrients is implicated, or potentiated, information of great value because of our faith in holisitic subsidiarity, and balanced thermodynamic complementarity. If we have a Whole System, then we have subsidiary parts. If the subsidiary parts forget the Principle of Holistic Subsidiarity, forget that efficacy is discerned within our intention for sustained whole-system regeneration, then our resulting sociopathology reminds us that our Internal/External health and wealth find therapeutic value by improving their complementarity. This provides us with both a positive and negative feedback loop. Both loops are needed for regenerative self-care, people-care, and Earth-care. Dissonance teaches us about the possibility of confluence. Confluence teaches us about the synchronization of balanced holistic subsidiarity.

The Principle of Complementarity is to Yang-imbalance as the Principle of Subsidiarity is to Yin-imbalance. The natural law of thermodynamic polarity balance, whole-system harmony, holds together all four Deep Ecology principles of regenerative systems development.

“Waste” is inefficiency, loss, dissonance and is heuristically held as a potential resource; a suffering that may teach us something we would like to learn. Waste, loss, harm management are all about planning sustained self-organization and self-maintenance through balanced sub-system subsidiarity and whole-system complementarity. This balance optimizes learning (highest and best use of our information ecology) while minimizing loss of thermodynamic balance, or dissonance, and ineffective sustenance, internally and externally.

 Community builders, faith community organizers, intentional community developers, public dialogue facilitators, economists, ecologists, even lobbyists, recognize that where you end up is hugely and persistently boundaried by where you start out. Our self-regenerating landscapes value diversely entwined root systems, mutually defining and enriching, mutually protecting and promoting, nutritiously and lavishly seeded investments that will flower to reincarnate our Original Intent, our hope-filled active gratitude for Re-Creating most fully and bountifully together forever. Regenerative intention is the faith infrastructure that underlies the universe of religion, ecology, and Systems Design. Permaculture Design is our ecosystemic metaphor currently on pilgrimage toward a holistic, thermodynamic, Regenerative Systems Development Theory of permanent evolution.

Permanent evolution of regenerational life-systems is revolutionary; it sings “Why Life?”

 Why does dawn dress morning,

while dusk undresses sight?

Each dawn incarnates another Earth Day

as Easter morning’s redeeming revolution,

another day of gift-it-forward light,

some longer,

some shorter before naked covered night.

 

Why life?

To uncover love’s enlighting invitation,

integrity’s eco-creative comprehensive meaning.

To discover love life sustained

as Earthdependent ego-death’s belonging.

To recover co-passion’s perpetual peaceful pilot light,

decomposing fire’s burning fuel rate

and flow toward warm home health

and eternal sight.

 

Why rehabilitation,

repurposing of people,

as NotBinomial Function begat Binomial Information.

 

Consumption begat production,

as monoculture begat polycultures.

 

Non-aversion begat co-arising prehension,

Redemption begat regeneration,

as economic cooperative justice begat ecological balance.

 

So, just maybe two wrongs could make a right,

space is to time

as matter forms energy,

convex forms concave’s exterior,

as YinYin nondually reflexes Yang.

 

Form is to function

as positive is to negative

as grasping prehension is to non-dual non-violence,

as sin and ignorance appear to those possessed by dysfunction.

 

Production is to consumption

as Host is to parasitic relationship

as Earth is to water,

as Permacultural Design is to Polycultural Flow and Development.

 

Radiant light is to ionic gravitational dual-dark relationship waves

as protons are to duelling electrons

as future is to history’s past,

as regenerative creativity predicts bicameral decomposition.

 

Synergy is to negentropy

as fire is to air,

as synaptic is to aptic,

as information is to noise.

 

Investment is for redemption

as cause is for effectiveness,

as wealthy power is for optimizing healthy ecovalue,

as teaching is for mentoring.

 

Polycultures are to monoculture

as speaking is to listening,

as love is to active internal peace,

as peace is to ecojustice.

 

Big Bang dense and noisy negentropic polycultural information

begat permacultural positive evolution toward comprehensive Beloved light,

as NotNotPolynomial Function is to Polynomial Information,

as ecojustice is to ecotherapy,

as history is to culture,

as Yang is to Yin-squared,

as +1 is to (-,-)0 binary ergodic potentiated balance.

 

Regenerate function of language creates,

subjects objectives to empirical scrutiny,

nouns verb toward analogical futurity,

inspire,

enjoy,

insight,

bright dawns both ecologically wise and economically (0)-summed co-operative,

fueling Earth’s Win-Win co-passioning power toward globally peaceful justice.

 

Eco-systemic comprehension both fuels and farms permacultural love,

organic ecotherapy for all four economic seasons,

including advent’s winterish purgation,

winnowing Identity’s weedy monocultural/monomial root assumptions,

composting Earth Tree’s rehabiting spring branches

stretching out gravity’s mutual gratitude

toward Omniscientific Eco’s radiant bi-temporal light.

 

Why regenerate living?

Why not decompose co-arising light?

 Speaking of evolution, some of the Solidarity EcoVillage wanna-be’s are familiar with Thomas Kuhn’s Theory of Scientific Revolutions. Kuhn became somewhat obsessed with an issue about knowledge; the Problem of Incommensurability. How can we be sure that we are using language to signify the same thing, or different things, or things that stand in the same relationship to other things, or not? How can we predict if a new idea will lead to the evolution of an entirely new paradigm, a new scientific theory, or whether it will not really become part of our culture, our way of seeing the world? How can I be sure that my values are, or are not, commensurable with your values, your thoughts, your communications, what feeds you, or causes you despair or anguish and suffering? How can I reliably predict that what I propose, what I notice and try to understand, will inform your interior landscape in the same way that it informs mine?

 A theory of regenerative evolution responds to Kuhn’s Problem of Incommensurability with recognizing dissonance and complexity as more than hopeless suffering and confusion. We intend and practice active Complementarity, a compassionate faith that within dissonance lies the fertilizer of potential information. The issue of imbalance between intentions, the disparities of diverse practices and pilgrimages and paradigms, contains the seeds of a universally commensurable meaning. In this way, our pathological fears and concerns point us toward hope and faith in the potential for a more deeply integrated relationship. Compassion, empathy, Deep Learning, plus significant dissonant complexity, inspires revolutionary development toward understanding, integrity, resilience, inclusively rich information and nutrition; solidarity.

Our thermodynamically-balanced exterior informs our theo-dynamic interior, as Permaculture Design potentiates Regenerative Creation.  The difference between Deep Learning and Deep Ecology is that one actively hopes for interior regeneration while the other also hopes for exterior regeneration.

Your grateful neighbor,

Gaia

As we roll up Earth’s fragile scroll, we couldn’t think of any more questions, so we headed back home, not quite the same way we arrived.

Awaking now,

to our melting ice home,

did we find this ecojustice,

or did RNA find and intelligently develop us,

or both somehow?

 

Only eternal remembered time’s unfolding

will tell upon refolding.

Your time will come when great courage is required of the Shaman warriors—moral and physical courage.  You will go right into the heart of the civilized powers to dismantle their weapons, and confront their scars.  You will go into the pits and citadels where their weapons and scars are made.  Together, you are going into the corridors of power where the decisions are made.  In this way you will work to dismantle weapons and heal the scars of civilization.

Know that their damage can be dismantled because they are mind-made.  As they have been made by the human mind, they can be unmade by the human mind.  These dangers you face are not brought on by some unchangeable preordained fate.  Rather, these dangers arise out of separations, disvalue for caregiving, lack of relationship and habits, out of outgrown priorities.

The Great Horned Owl closed his eyes.  The boy, ever so much gently as possible, eased the owl onto the now not-so-fresh bed of grass and straw, weeping openly now at his loss. The confirmation that he was some kind of unlikely orphan in a hostile land was far more upsetting than any consolation from the news that he was only visibly—and perhaps audibly?—alone.  Without any opening of the vast owl eyes, the boy sensed, more than heard, You must train in the use of two implements. One is compassion—yang energy.  The other is insight into the radically nondual interdependence of all phenomena—yin-squared energy.

You need both.  You need the compassion of yang because it provides the fuel to move you out to where you need to be and to do what you need to do.  It means not being afraid of the suffering of your world, and when you are not afraid of the world’s pain, then nothing can stop you.

But, by itself, yang is so hot it will burn you out.  So you need yin energy, unitarian insight into the radical interconnectivity of all that is.  When you can see this synergy, then you know that this is not a battle between the good guys and the bad guys.  You know that the line between good and evil runs through the landscape of every heart.  And you know that we are so interwoven in the web of life that even our smallest acts have repercussions that ripple through the whole web, beyond our capacity to see.  Yin, separated from yang, can be too cold, too abstract, too presumptuous, too intuitive, too scary, actually.  So you also need the heat of yang’s compassion.

[Adapted from Active Hope, The Shambhala Warrior Prophecy, pp. 101-103, as told to Joanna Macy (text authored with Chris Johnstone) by Dugu Choegyal Rinpoche, Tashi Jong, India. 2012, New World Library, Novato, CA]

With the word “compassion” the Great Horned Spirit exhaled his last into the boy’s new breath, an exchange he would never forget and often recall as warm and compelling, where he otherwise would have expected stale, dry decay.  As he covered his short-lived ally with dark soil, enriched by decades of frequent cow manure, his sobs slowed.  Gradually his frantic prayers to a god that he had been told does not let animals into heaven were overcome by an almost silently transparent wisdom, that humans co-redeem with all organisms, regenerating our heavens and our hells together.

Tao = Bilaterally Eternal Time

Father solar systemic Time
and Mother Earth’s Space
regenerated RNA fractal spacetime,
reiteratively sensed
echoing through our dipolar DNA fueled
omniscientific
omnisciently empowering
Right hemispheric memory
of Information’s Harmonic String Theory.

Equitable peace within radically inclusive consciousness,
Earth love with Solar System synergy,
compassion mating right-hemispheric mindfulness,
permacultural orthopraxis,
transpecies and transmillennially expressing
what Grandfather Fuller regeneratively implied.

Transcendent consciousness and communication networks
flying
echoing
reiterating
cycling,
revolving
crowdsourcing ecological values
dreamed with optimal longing tears
by pre-millennial grandelders.

Each bi-generation reincarnating nature’s root bicameral system
of positive teleological hope for this taproot
now emerging into bicultural East-West consciousness,
a spring,
a twig,
a preconscious QBit trend,
promising polynomial branches
with cooperative productive leaves balancing consuming string-stems,
and richly pollinated organic flowers
of glorious gratefully incarnated diversity,
our Tree of Life in Fuller bloom,
now comprehensively conscious,
self-aware of our EarthTime progenitors,
grateful for history’s herstoric nutritional roots,
paradise shared with birds and worms,
sun and water and air,
breathing and beating
our flowing steady stream of dreamy swimming “Yes!”

At last, at last,
we share our Beloved Community InformNational Dream,
full moon beams rapturing Gaia’s radiant dark camouflaging skin,
political economic ecological natural philosophical religion
credentialed with Taoist Permacultural Systemic Consciousness.

Predative production winner function
struggling against victimized consumer prey-loser dissonance,
remerge with Win-Win interdependent cooperative relationship,
as cooperatively predative preying parasites’
thrival of the polycultural fittest.

Fully diastatic consciousness loves a closed 8-frequency prime octave
to emerge one Positive/Negative thermodynamic
and electromagnetic
and mutually gravitational bilateral
binomial fractal form,
of inside is to outside
as what goes up
must optimally
and self-regeneratively
come down as coincidental double-bound spacetime,
where any +polynomial binary information
must also be not-not binomially
and logically
and ecologically
and economically
and culturally
and Left-Right hemispheric
dipolar balanced octave harmonics
of Closed Set Universal Information String Theory.

Each bilateral conscious moment within Earth’s natural space
is equivalently birthed by EcoFather’s Prime Unitarian
seasons of analogical function:
Tao = Time
as +Yang = (-,-)Yin
as Polynomial QBit Information = Not-Not Polynomial Functional Consciousness,
as +1 = (+/-)0 digital binary negative dipolar correlation,
open universally systemic zero-sum cooperatively Win-Win balancing.

This emerges from camouflaged intuitive consciousness
of wu-wei as TrimTab tipping,
pointing
toward 4-dimensional spacetime harmonic octaves,
Zero Vertexial Yang OVER Zero Vortexial Yin-Yin’s
bilaterally emergent alpha and omega of present full consciousness.

Dark Bright Light

Pain, loss, dissonance, decay,
pessimistic enculturing survivor’s under-heroic story
within the wilder winnings of optimistic history,

May ecologically coincide with interactive hope,
mutually-held faith already logosed at hand,
that peace with justice optimally encourage Win-Winners
through incarnation’s incubating life.

What have our children become
that we stand by to watch them
burn and bury their own still alive screaming
self-shredding skin within?

What have we become
that commerce does not even pause,
no unholy moment of awed silence,
no sensed horrific wonder.

Violent climatic voices continue charring,
keyboards continue clacking,
parents continue screaming,
corporate bells still ring out
competitive logistic assumptions,
industrious rhythms,
streaming cultural strings of power
without sufficient wisdom to Midway stop;
Yang with Yin in balance,
Positive with Not-Negative In-Formating imbalance.

Silent full breaths of boiling sorrow,
crucifying, purging innocent redeemers
with dying life awareness.

Blind aching deaths of anguish,
hoarding self-hatred,
radiating raging hate,
clutching competition to live,
too dissonant to bear,
too desperate to hear,
too cooperative with coincidental death.

What goes down dark, must rise up bright.

On Stealing the Light
to redeem our dark night.

A good runner leaves no track.
A completely cooperative relay race
leaves no marginal boundary remainders to trace.

A good speech leaves no flaws for attack.
An inclusively well-written position
leaves no constituent out for later opposition.

A good reckoner makes use of no counters.
A good logician makes use of no commodifiers.

A well-shut door makes use of no bolts,
And yet cannot be opened.
A well-being platform makes use of no bolts from eco-logic,
and yet can predictably rotate,
revolve revolution toward Universe as Open Systemic Relational Balance.

A well-tied knot makes use of no rope,
And yet cannot be untied.
A well-tied not makes use of no polynomial information string,
and yet cannot not be not rationally double-tied.

Therefore Wisdom is good at helping human nature
For reason does not reject nature.
Wisdom self-optimizes by redeeming things;
For that reason abused landfill substances evaporate,
with no one and no thing rejected.
–This is called regenerative enlightenment.

Therefore, the good is the Teacher of the bad,
And the bad is Mentor with double-negative good.

Competitors who do not value Teacher Nature
Nor love the mentoring optimetric prime function
Wander a pro-chaotic pay-off toward long-term entropy,
Though deductive-only learned Left-brain dominant
–Such is Right’s Yintuitive double-knotted secret bright.

Mutual EcoTherapists bid global good dream nights.

Note:

This piece is inspired by, and concludes with a responsive transposition of, Laotse’s “On Stealing the Light,”, pp. 156-7, Wisdom of Laotse, Modern Library, 1948, Lin Yutang, ed. I wonder aloud, both here and elsewhere, if early shamanic wisdom made no Post-Industrial Era distinction between human economic natural systemic positive intent and ecological nature’s systemic positive practice, as they observed the cooperative infrastructure of Sun’s fertile rays upon Earth’s photosynthetically-coincident-synergetic farming skin.

RNA’s Square Dance

Earth’s soul, Her soil

Her fuel, Her Sun

Her blood, baptismal water

Her SkyGod fills each copulating breath

upon Her bicameral skin

of self-regenerating consciousness,

where super-eco logic

double-binds time’s evolving

now-present primal balance
