Invite Our Day

Live each day
as if this day were your last.

What do you mean, dear?
Each day is your last day.

Well, no,
not if you have another tomorrow,
or perhaps even if you merely plan for a tomorrow
which never comes to pass.

Oh I see what you mean,
I think…
Well then,
wouldn’t you be better off and on to say
Live this day
as if it included your only tomorrow?

Maybe…
But, each day does include our only tomorrow.

I don’t think so.
Not if you have yet another tomorrow
after this day,
or one at least planning on being
more than one tomorrow.

What do you mean
by more than one tomorrow?
I thought I had only one of these,
which continually precedes and processes me
by a minimum of 24 hours.

Hmm…
Then sometimes your tomorrow feels longer
and sometimes shorter
than it should
or could
or might become?

But that’s just it, my dear.
Tomorrow never actually arrives,
ever closer by imagining it longer.
Yet imaging tomorrow as remarkably short
at least brings me closer
to Earth’s timeless eternity
of integrative promise.

So that’s what you mean
by living daily
as if today includes your last tomorrow?

Yes, but sometimes no.
That sounds like an invitation
to nihilism,
often confused with liberation
away from future’s regenerous invitation.

How about
Nurture each day
as if today invites your fullest potential
for integrally controlling all our cooperative tomorrows?

It lacks a certain
timeless
ring.
It does not rhythmic zing.
However acute is your ping.

How about
we Yin today
as if rethinking YangYin together
all WinWin tomorrows?

I think we might become
together winning.

Economically and politically too?

As trans-regenderally sacred
through this still small failing futures voice.

Are we through?

It’s been good for me,
how about tomorrow you?

The Climax
as tomorrow’s co-operative beginning.

How LeftBrain capitalizing of us, dear.

Yinning Yang
us two,
WinWin planning
our mutual transitioning tomorrow too.

Living today
as tomorrow’s first through last,
perennial spiral cooperating together
to sometimes compete tomorrows apart
to live again
this integrative timeless tomorrow.

Today invites and disinvites
Tomorrow,
transubstantiating
trans-regenerational
integrity of time.

Today is just like yesterday
except when it is different,
when we are different,
when I am different,
sometimes better
sometimes worse
usually just the same
and indifferent.

Today is just like tomorrow
imagined sometimes better
sometimes worse
usually invested cooperatively same as sane
and yet competitively indifferent
insanity.

Live today
through better inviting cooperative tomorrow.

Yin
as tomorrow becomes our best Yang.

Yin,
(wu wei midway co-arising).

You know,
I can see, and sometimes hear and feel,
your implicating dialectal parenthetical commentary.

(I dipolar hope so.)

Or what,
no better tomorrow?

(I love only notnot threat free,
double-binding.)

Ecopolitical logic for today’s tomorrow.

(cooperatively designing tomorrow’s today)

OK,
you can stop with annoying
book-ended
perpetual double-bind parenthesis.

I hoped we were just now getting started.

Yes, but I’m living today
so we optimize our tomorrow returns
so your Yimplications
might best explicate more widely.

(and deeply)

(Oh, now
you go through tomorrow…)

(Love
your dualdark Yanguage)

(How LeftBrain cooperative positivist of us.)

(feeling aptically warm and dreamy
nonpunctuating tomorrows now)

Promise.

(could we talk about this our tomorrow)

…I think she’s today asleep.

Nope, still almost here
and there,
feeling best in eternal interdependent now.

Seize the day.

Invite our timeless tomorrow.

Lived Paraclete/Sophia

Once within recycling time
lived brother Paraclete
as sister Sophia,
and vice versa.

Written across each bicameral heart and mindbody
these two live on
as controlling Yang
with nurturing Yin,
somewhat before their Western cousins,
Paraclete, God’s Justice Advocate
as Sophia,
Wisdom’s Holonic CoOperative Spirit.

These dipolar loving twins
grow famous in design and planning circles
as thinking Paracelete acting Sophia,
descended from long regenerative nondual lines
of patriarchal deductive-reductive peering down from elite above,
while matriarchally inducing nurture up from grassroots
original wisely cooperative compost
of more nutritious intentions.

The Paraclete still advocates top-down deductive dominance
while sister Sophia nurtures
bottom-up inductive cooperatives
sometimes recognized as conjoined:
multiculturing,
creolizing,
metamorphic,
revolutionary,
transubstantiating,
transliterative,
polynomial,
polypathic
polyculturing outcomes of healthier wealth
through synergetically robust action.

Sophia remains a steadfastly busy nurturing spirit,
giving revolutionary birth to many more seedlings
than she is likely to invest in,
nurtured more long-term
permacultural histories as Earth’s embryonic creation stories.

Brother Paraclete,
our from-above Advocate,
chooses only those memes and nomials
deduced and inducted as most democratically WinWin
with Sophia’s denominative implications,
becoming symmetrical equivalencies,
0-centering dipolar appositionals,
eco-latticed co-arisings
emerging ecological economics,
ecopolitics of cooperativity.

Paraclete advocates for EgoNormics
as Sophia nurtures cooperative EcoNomials,
bilateral nomials,
some written in LeftBrain capitalizing logical narratives,
and some remaining RightBrain verbal phasing hidden
within Sophia’s cooperative nurturing heart,
waiting further revolutionary from-below rediscovery
gone viral
in cooperative networks of communication
within across each and every polynomial Paraclete
and notnot polynomial Sophia,
bilaterally co-arising hearts together
and co-investing mindbodies,
DNA encrypted
both Paraclete Up going down on Sophia
Down, yet seeping Up,
breathing Yang in deductions
also Yin out inductions,
and then reversing these co-arising twins again,
breathing out Yin inductive bilateral
as also Yang paraclete BiCameral
Up with own
Yang with YinBilaterals
Polynomial with Not(NotPolynomial),

This polypathic creation narrative
recycles
spiral dialectics
back and forth,
regenerating this renovating time
until
every Paraclete/Sophia lives ego-happily
as healthy eco-wealthily
ever after.

Once again within recycling time
lives Yang Paraclete
as Yin Sophia,
and vice versa.

Powers Good and NotSoMuch

If a person has power in your life,
and you notice fears and sense of threat,
dishonesty to be avoided
and yet you do not see hope
and sense of faithfulness to our integrity
as humanity,
then do what you can to disempower that person
from your life.

To begin,
notice how this person’s fears and threats,
competing insecurities and terrifying postures
feed your despair
to also teach you how to better feed your active remaining hope
for growing integrity within yourself
within your family
within others
within your culture
extending out
possibly to embrace all Earth’s faith-filling polypathic promise.

Life’s Ups and Downs

Families
and communities,
hopefully becoming like extending families,
and that would make them some form of faith communities,
relying exclusively on top-down authorities
to empower today
and tomorrow’s cooperative faithfulness
to ourselves
to each other
to Earth
to the Universe, perhaps,
are also families and communities
under-invested
suboptimizing
bottom-up maturing co-empathic responsibilities
to learn nutritional elements
and synergetic trends we democratically trust
and multiculturally feel
for their optimizing wealth of health potential.

And, those other darker
not clearly articulating our Golden Ruling DNA-RNA dialectal heritage,
and those clearly pathologically distrusted
as anathema and terror’s immunities from growing healthy egos
and evolving nutritiously faithful communities
and revolving Earth’s regenerative spiral revolving trends,
bilaterally co-arising
ego/eco consciousness of Earth
as sacramental cooperative fulfillment
further seeking positive faithful WWW promise,
Win self-economics
Win Other ecologics
Win Earth ecosystemic
sacramental spacetime
0-sum co-investing moments.

What cooperative fulfilling authority goes down
equivalently invites and resonates with
co-empathic promising responsibilities
emerging from below shared day dreams,
not nightmares,
rising synergetically up.

Climates of health recycling down
so landscapes of wealthy global democracy
rise revolutionary
and sacramentally
and cooperatively
faithfully up.

Earth’s changing from above climate
seeps and sweeps up and down
into each community’s communicating climates
seeping down and sweeping up
ectosymbiotic and endosymbiotic
creolizing and transubstantiating
into and around
each individual’s internal climates
of sacramentally faithful experience
and desecrating despair, dismay, competing dissonances,
and, so, thereby,
vice versa,
preferably more actively cooperative WinWin
than reactively competitive WinLose
capitalistic and patriarchal
over-extended gamesmanship.

Families
as sacramental communities
cooperate best both sweeping up
and seeping down together
of and for tomorrow’s greatest faithfulness,
and minimal monoculturing
climates of despair.

Public Sector Predators

I have lately noticed
WinLose bottom-line business competitors
lead within for-profit rabidly accelerating circles
and are not thereby well prepared
to produce effective robust outcomes
in a more WinWin democratic public service role,
elected or appointed.

I have further noted
general decline of original democratic public servant roles,
revolutionarily replaced by a competing public predator CEO role,
pirating political powers
to better hoard aristocratic economic rewards.

This has been the stuff of history,
fall of Empires,
but also for-profit failing corporations.

It is these latter corporate failures
even beyond more nakedly protected democratic losses,
where authority of position
includes authority to continue employing others
in your jail,
or setting lowly employees free
to market themselves elsewhere,
for democratic enriching profit
or for self-serving quarterly producing profits
for absent short-term disinvested owners
and their equally self-serving managers,
Colossus Trumpians, I suppose,
rather than the old school
public servant model.

Living in a self-seeking climate of growing pathology,
where schools neither mentor nor bother to even lecture
the socially cooperative primacy of mutual service,
grace of gratitude both given and received,
for civic responsibilities growing into interdependent authorities,
nor are parents necessarily skilled leaders
of mutually cooperative WinWin
ecopolitical skill-set development.

For these reasons,
and probably far remedially more,
it seemed right and normal,
good and proper,
that the best cooperatively judicious diplomats
of and for public policies and government procedures,
whether self-governing or also other-governing,
would be those with public servant sector backgrounds,
rather than private predative sector unforgiven foregrounds,
understories of evolutionary Might Makes Right.

Yet this model of competing ruthless leadership
just now appears a Commons lowering denominator
for both public and private sectors,
for more multiculturing cooperative wisdom.

It should be no more a surprise
to a U.S. President
that Presidents do not have unmitigated autonomous powers
of information disclosure
nor of information fabrication,
of energy sharing and conserving
nor of energy hoarding for further self-investing
even further autonomously unmitigated authorities
of revenge and competing egomanias,
than surprise to a CEO
of any healthy cooperatively-managed corporation
where private sector mutual service
and mutually subsidiary authorities
are co-responsibilities of all
who breathe and think maturely,
speak and listen democratically,
with heart beats
both diastatic wealthy
and systolic healthy,
both full and empty of ego/eco-viral powers,
mutually grateful
for all who live and laugh
midway between fully is and yet not yet.

Public private servants,
consuming no more relational powers
than we can individually and collectively reproduce,
replace,
recycle.

Because we elect and normally appoint
Public Servants
based on their prior experience
as Private Predators,
wealth and power accumulating hoarders
at their capital top
bucks stop here
in this pirate place
my allies and I have bought and sold for,
I am learning
that we don’t public service get
what we do private sexist and racist and elitist pest
invest in.

Application forms
and ballots
all seek WinWin caregivers,
too often counted and selected
by WinLose bully Presidents,
wearing Chief Executive Officer hats
rather than carrying Lead Servant Mentor portfolios.

Legislators and judges
educators and parents
achieve more wholesome outcomes
by remaining students of deep ecological listening
than by becoming teachers
of Ayn Rand’s egocentric economics
for antisocial climbers.

Investing to Thrive

WinLose competitions
evolving
can only emerge from prior ecopolitics
of predominately cooperative relations
transactions.

Prior cooperatively evolving WinWin dominance
is ecologically necessary
and logically implied
to derive anything like
WinLose capital-building economies.

The opposite is not also true.
WinWin cooperations
evolve only as further emergence
from prior cooperative ecopolitical relations,
more resonantly resolving
than WinLose degenerative unraveling.

After School Jam Session

How was school today?

Fine.

Did you learn anything important?

Maybe. I’m not sure yet.

Really? What are you considering?

We talked about Howard Odum’s natural trinity
of altruism.

Maybe I skipped that day
way back in premillennial times
before Permaculture Design had taken over deep learning development.
Who is Howard Odum
and how does his natural trinity
diverge from my traditional Holy Trinity?
Or, maybe it doesn’t.

Howard Odum was an early systems theorist
who studied ecosystemic trends
of nutrition building and disintegration,
of sustainable balance
and runwaway monocultural disasters
like climate and landscape anti-nutritional pathologies.

Did you just say
climate change derives from monocultural overshoot,
a weedpatch taking over our garden,
also known as Earth?

I guess,
but in this case the weedpatch
is also known as over-industrialized
LeftBrain dominant
anthropoids.
But, the natural trinity of altruism
is about climates of inter-relational health,
and not about monocultures and anthropocentrism.

I’m sure I missed this class,
if they even had it back in my Baby Boomer day.

You probably just got the Holy Trinity part,
when you studied metaphysics.
I don’t think they were teaching ecosystemic theory
when you took MultiCultural Civics Development classes;
although Howard was published well before your high school years.

It probably took awhile for educators
to figure out the significance
of ecosystemic balance,
within and without,
rather than merely lecturing about unsustainable imbalances
hoping for civil democratically optimizing
multiculturing
and, thereby, self-other regenerative systems
as wellness,
and not so much sickness.

Anyway, so is there a summary version of this natural trinity
that you might share?

Well, yes, I suppose the basic idea is as simple
as any convex and therefore also concave implicated triangle.

I’m already lost.
No recall of convex and concave
in my Holy Trinity.

Oh, right…
you missed postmillennial Bucky Fuller metrics too.
Let’s see…
OK, Odum’s natural trinity
is a dynamic model for balancing lifetime energy investments,
but at two levels.
The individual biosystem.
And, the collective species’ regenerational biosystem,
conceived as a not totally discontinuous
ongoing spacetime ecosystem
sharing Earth with other biosystemic ecosystems.

At both of these levels,
individual and higher-order species,
about a third of energy invested into the system
is required for healthy metabolic regeneration
of each and every mental-physical system.

Another consumed third of energy
feeds back to maintain mutually subsidiary subsystemic prey,
providers of fuel and energy.

The last captured third of energy
produces re-investments outward
to what Odum calls
“higher-order system controllers.”

Do you have an example?
What might be one of my potential investments
in a higher-order control/nurture system?

Well,
in class
the hierarchical trinity we used
was grass in relationship with rabbits
in relationship with a predator,
like a fox,
for example.

So the rabbit’s energy waste fuels the grass,
and the more vulnerable rabbits feed the foxes.

Yes, especially the young and lame.
The ones who see and sniff and move less well.

I don’t see how that works out so well as a trinitarian third.
If you are young or lame or blind, especially.
But how does Odum approximate this one-third math
at the individual creature level?

That’s what we’re talking about in class.
I would imagine
if you view successfully hunted and devoured
from a predator’s perspective
you might feel the prey had made nearly a 100% re-investment,
perhaps omitting the larger bones,
in your higher-order controlling species.
Perhaps a hungry pride of lions.

This natural trinity of altruism
seems to suffer in the end
from more competitive taking without asking
and less cooperative giving without needing to be asked,
which is what I though altruism was more about.

I suppose Odum was looking at balanced ecosystems
as a resonantly deep whole,
in which about one third of a species’ generation,
as seen from God’s Higher Order perspective,
redeems the other two-thirds
by feeding the metabolic thrival needs
of higher-order predators,
controlling risks of overpopulation,
leading to monocultural landscapes and climates
of descending, and increasingly rabid,
pathology.

You mean like mother pigs eating their young
to better feed those remaining in her litter?

OK, if that actually happens
I’m not sure I wanted to know about it.
Also, if that happens,
then we are talking about an out of balance system
between generations within the same species.
Perhaps Odum was speaking of some cosmic balance of energy.
Really big picture.
Global.
Polypathic energy exchanges.

And maybe higher order systems
are not limited to controlling predators.
Perhaps a higher order ecosystems
might nurture potential victims
of Earth’s imbalance,
especially our young and enslaved and addicted
to competing sensory blindness
and malnourished projects for ego-identity expansion,
continuation,
until we each discover
that pain and loss and death
could be revisited
reconceived
as equal to two-thirds of cooperative life
and multiculturing gain
through monoculturing absence,
emptiness,
loss of egocentric WinLose interest,
divestment of self
as re-investment in higher-order YangControl/YinNurture balance.

So, that would be the connection, then,
between Odum’s natural trinity of altruism
and Christianity’s Holy Trinity
of and for Earth’s multiculturing altruism.

Where is Holonic Spirit
in this dual level trinity
of higher order control
with lower order nurturance
producing self-regenerating healthy wealth
of ego/eco-systemic Earth?

That would be the middle ego/eco feeding balance,
growing out to extend family identity
to include gratitude for nurturing embryonic cousins,
both Son and Daughter resources,
bicameral X and bilateral Y,
extending on through our ultimate individual biosystemic loss
to higher order nurturing.

co-arising nonduality
of 0-sum polypathic spacetime energy regeneration,
in 4D bilaterally co-gravitating
Commons-squared Folds
with dualdark ExFolding ExFormations.

You’re making that up
as you go along
aren’t you?

About one third, I would say.
Another third comes from Elder RightYin memories
and the final third comes out through LeftBrain Yang-explicating
language,
not necessarily higher ecological orders of balance
and resonant octave-fractal harmonics,
yet that is our Cooperative Democratic shared ideal,
I suppose?

And do we intuitively and multiculturally share
this 0-sum ecopolitical metaphysical development
do you think?

I hope so.
Otherwise I have a serious case of idolatrous
toxic imbalance going on,
contributing further to climates of dismay
rather than natural-spiritual trinities
of ecosystemic balance,
as was my original matriarchal intent.

You need to update, Mom.
Re-sync.
Get more health-wealth centered.

I thought that’s what we were doing together,
just now.

Oh, I get it,
kind of a higher order cooperative nurturance
of ego/eco co-investing systemic paradigms.

Very good!
Building mutual trust and identity expansion
by each reiterating ego-convex
with eco-concave
0-sum bilateral nurturing
creolizing communication order.

Wait a minute,
creolization theory
has nothing to do with systems theory
at least as captured and re-invested by Howard Odum.

Oh, I thought they sound and feel alike,
while one looks outside physical
and the other listens inside metaphysical.

Right.
Change of subject:
What’s for dinner?

Not sure.
What would you like to eat
and help me produce
for our future re-investments
in higher-order thrival
and ego-ordering metabolic survival?

Mom, stop.
This happens every time you ask me
How was school?
And I respond with anything other than
Fine.

Oh, come on,
you’re the one who said I need to update.
And, besides,
you might be able to use this.
Maybe in Political Philosophy next semester,
if not Permaculture Systemic Design this semester.

I’ll have to think about that…
There’s also that Polypathic EcoPolitics of Cosmology thesis
I’ve not quite finished.

Sounds like a tossed salad?
