Cannibal Prophets

Prophecy is risky
and peculiar.

Prophets so seldom unveil opportunities
to win resilient integrity
without concomitant risks
of unhealthy failure.

Prophets of booming doom
and gloom
far outweigh voices for Golden Rules
and healthy tipping points
toward organic wealthy Ratios
to thrive opportunity rich
and risk free of threatening less
for any players
and for our working/playing Habitat,

Earth 
and Her interdependent spacetime webbed ecological Universe,
also theologically known as Heaven(s).

Prophecy
has far less to say about future positive Paradise,

although manifest destiny
toward streets of capitalistic gold
and immaterial timeless life
for humane nature spiritualized souls
day and night Worshiping God the Father,
who is not a person
nor just a holistic Holy Ghost,
and is not Earth
and does not include owls
or dogs
or cats,
and certainly not skunks
or ravens
or vultures,

So Paradise becomes a Heaven
that may sound anti-ecological
to nature and beauty lovers,
a theological projection too transcendent
to remain humane and lovely
using a patriarchal anthro-hubris lens
toward monocultural vapidity,

Which is the opposite of rabidity,
more characteristic of hellish prophecies,
apparently confused with hopes more positive
and unmindfully compelling
fascinating
hypnotic
addictive.

Indigenous prophecies
include Cannibal Giant
who preys,
and never prays,
upon entire Tribes
Nations
and Confederacies of NationTribes
to chop off our heads
and boil them in beezle juice,

A protocol that begins with starvation,
perhaps because of climate degenerative climax issues,
but may continue just to count and hoard skulls
as early currency for Cannibal Giants
and their Warriors
demonstrating patriarchal power prowess.

If Cannibal Giants were themselves prophets
they would predict changes
from now through some future Earth climate
and human culture rooted in change trends
noticed from some past Great Transition time
toward this present moment
in Earth history,

A story with creation winners
and degenerative losers
among us cannibal head-hunters
of capital-hoarding
living in a climate
culture of regenerative/degenerative environmental health
and pathology.

Prophecy is rooted in retrospective
between a left-brain dominant HeadHunter,
a capitalistic win/lose God of theology
and our right hemisphere Gaian Hypothesis
of how to optimize ecological win/wins
in an interdependently latticed economy
predicting future impressive integrity of ego-health
co-arising eco-wealth.

Prophecy issues from cannibalizing roots
to survive,
then nutrition-driven enslavement
for extracted agricultural  and sex workers,
then capital-development HeadHunter enslavement,
then win/lose head hunters
for industrial revolutions
into national colonies
owned by royal kleptocrats,
then passed to republican capitalists
for corporate profits,
not to be confused with prophets,
now perhaps passing on
toward win/win
left/right bicameral trusting
co-empathic
capital cooperative co-investors
in multi-theological ecology,

Left liberating Gaian hypotheses
and right conservational God of EarthLove 
Integrity together prophesying
further climates
of resilient resonance
in past
and through future
regenerative health
predicting less degenerative head-hunter lack of wealth
as measured in trusted
re-memories of Paradise,
bilaterally co-invested,
co-investing,

Ego/eco-investment
in Paradise Prophecy
issuing back and forth,
back space and forth time,
to and fro
for and from 
former Cannibal Giants.
