What is social complexity?
asks and answers Robert Wright
which also reads just as right as
What is regenerative density?
and perhaps to Bucky Fuller,
and then again Gregory Bateson’s
What is sacred ecology?
comes to reweave Laotse’s
What is self/other-regenerative abundant flow of governance?
looks back to Mr. Leslie White:
“Cultural [and economic and political and psychological] evolution,
he (White) announced,
could be measured by a single [appositional]gauge,
calibrated in terms of [regenerative/degenerative] energy.”
quoting Mr. White-Wright creolization,
when the amount of energy harnessed
by man [and woman and all EarthTribes and Earth and all healthy developing/maturing/aging organic systems]
per [(0)-Sum WinWin] capita
is increased [more cooperative WinWin than competitive WinLose]”;
about Mr White,
“He virtually equated cultural evolution
with the [ecopolitical] evolution
of [positive-WinWin/negative-WinLose] energy [self-regenerative] technology.
The [regenerative integrating-nurturing] efficiency
with which [positive] energy is captured [harvested, cooperatively invited]
and employed [co-invested]
wasn’t just a cause,
or a gauge,
but the [winwin-both/and with either/or bilateral] cause,
and the [bicameral balancing] gauge,
of [ecopolitical] [multi]cultural evolution.”
What is Earth’s ecopolitical creolizing-democratizing complexity?
What is growing regenerative health-wealth density
while shrinking degenerative EitherOr LeftBrain deductive
Patriarchal Anthro-Elitist dominance?
When I want to hear more social complexity,
I stay inside and listen to the OldNews.
When I want to see and hear and smell more global regenerativity,
climate and landscape health and safety,
I step outside
and remain there as cooperatively as possible
for as long as possible,
and usually as silently as possible,
although singing and laughter and dancing are coopratively invited.
I cannot sustain an inside voice of War against Patriarchal Terrorists,
but I can maintain an outside voice of Nurturing
with Matriarchal-WinWin Cooperative CoOwnership.
and regenerative-integrity density
are the same organic-systemic becoming,
both Left-WinWin regenerative and ElderRight-WinLose degenerative-antipathic distrust and co-empathic-aptic trust
in DNA’s BiLateral-CoOperative Business As Usual
on and with and of and for ever more
regenerating ecopolitical density.
