Kindred Spirits

If life’s sacred meaning
is found,
or perhaps never even lost,
through active multicultural regenerativity,

I hope love’s secular purpose
might find me,
and us,
through Earth-responsive recreation,

Like white patriarchal privilege
compelling matriarchal herstories
of dualdark degenerativity,

Like healthy green spring
is to winter wealthy snow.


Professor Gorey’s Sound Bytes

Professor Gorey
always had a story
filled wit guts and grim
til most folks around these parts
those with their full share of smarts
asked her where she finds her glory.

Grim Reaper
is not my heart’s keeper
and I thank you so for asking
just what I see as our life tasking,
to face our fears as permanent sleepers.

Professor Gorey
how could your story
of climatic strangulations
and cataclysmic slaughter of multiple reiterations
do other than make us snorey?

Story can wake you up
if you drink them with half-filled inductive cup
rather than gulping with competition
while choking on potential cooperation
between what’s contracting down while expanding up.

What is this mystery
we cannot see?
of breathing ego down while eco-up,
soothing prickly cats by playing gooey pups,
confusing what might become
with how we choose to be?

You’ve asked me well
so I must tell,
my gory mystery
of permaculturing history
is what makes my regenerating health so swell.



This piece plays with Alan Watts’ idea that there are two human cultural typologies, in mutually co-arising relationship. Pricklies are competitive-reductive dominant, following Win-Lose Gaming logistics, meaning that if I win then everybody else can lose, if they so choose, that is their business, and none of mine. Gooeys are cooperative-inductive dominant, following Win-Win Gaming logistics, meaning that if I win then everybody else might also be able to win, if they so choose, that is our business together, and We are larger Me.

Much of my economics-as-ecosystem work combines this observation with Julian Jaynes’ theory of the bicameral brain, where Left-ego-center hemisphere plays the role of Prickly, while Right-eco-center hemisphere plays the role of dual-transparently reiteratively balanced (the opposite of cognitive dissonance) DNA-fractal-gooey Elder AnaLogic as EcoLogic. This offers an internal landscape understory of why we notice what we notice through the lens of Positive Psychology, why positive balanced lifestyles, rich in healthy relationships, lead toward optimally regenerative happiness and fully-lived, enriched and enriching, cooperative lives and lifestyles and neighborhoods, and extended families, and tribes, and cultures, and other positive-polycultural¬†information¬†systems, inclusive of digital and binary QBit/8-Byte Octave reverse-hierarchical cooperatively double-bound logic-default Win-Win Gaming systems.

And I agree wholeheartedly with Charles Eisenstein that this cooperative Win-Win ecological economic human-natured game we unfold is sacred in its most cooperatively developed regenerations. and reiterations.


Nature’s Even-Tempered Balance

The dregs and tumors of decay
predict the medicine and balance of life.

Those who stand on tiptoe do not stand firm;
Those who stand with equal weight,
bipedal-planted, do stand firm.

Those who strain their stride do not walk well;
Those who stride well-timed,
grasping out only when and where environment reaches back,
walk optimally endowed for matching power with positive co-passion.

Those who reveal themselves are not luminous
because those who reveal us to ourselves are too bright.

Those who justify themselves are not far-famed
because those who justify us to ourselves mentor just rightness
with integrity of present truth with future promise.

Those who boast of themselves are not given credit
because those who boast of us within all Earth’s Tribes are mutually credited,
by all natural systems.

Those who pride themselves are not chief among human nature
because those who pride us within all nature are “spiritual leaders”.

These, in the eyes of Time’s transparent matter balancing energy,
Are called “the dregs and tumors of decay,”
things of disgust, disvalue;
AND are called “the therapy and harmony of fully integrated life,”
optimizing relationships of economic and ecological value.

Therefore those of Time’s natural transparency of space,
spurn dissonance,
absorb eco-balance of Yang/Matter deducing-inducing
Yin-Yin Iconically Gravitational Balance.

One Yin without Her energetic Second,
Ego-death inviting faith in
and through
and by
and of
and with
TransParency of Eco matter/energy;
transparent Time, 0 soul of ecologic,
0 sum total of economic transactional values,
universally quintessential PlaceHolder,
both Yang with Yin,
“dark” matter rhyming hydrogenic form,
“dark” energy timing helionic understory
of Earth’s ancestral permacultured
Ergodic Fractal Tree.

Ego death is both a silo isolation risk
of 0-static flatline,
and yin with yin,
coincidental co-relational opportunity,
opening a return to dominance of eco-Self’s primal identity
at cellular,
sub-organic interdependent,
“whole system universal body-mind” levels
of 0-centric
RNA-regeneratively rooted,
consciousness of memory as in-telligent in-coming in-form-ation.

Life evolves rooted within cellular systems of id-RNA-entity,
eternal holonic binomial
transparenting matterYang with integrative energy, Yin-Yin.

Natural systemic wisdom is exegetically shared
through Commons of RNA/DNA roots,
while eisegetically shared through sacred synergetic ecologic,
and transcendent
positively co-operating eco-normic heuristics,
multisystemically liturgical language
with Earth-warmed rhythms and patterns,
sounds with sights,
smells with tastes,
feelings of mutual gravity toward our shared medicinal
nutitritional dancing,
avoiding toxic intent and praxis
of negative-live dissonance
monoculture of unconscious entropic chaos,

“Death” equals isolation,
a silo sential silent “0” PlaceHolder,
faith in absolute isolation of ego-Self-identity
at cellular,
and “whole system embodied mind”
as tri-systemic levels
of conscientious mutually-transparent,
subsidiary yet co-incident,
binomial Eco-Intelligent
TransParenting FormYang with FunctionYin/Yin
polypathic binomial
metric eco-normic
Open Bionic System.

To co-prehend this ecologically economic conclusion of “Death”,
is to comprehend cooperative optimization,
Earth Tribe’s Polyculturing Life.
