Ecotones are ruled by prevailing polycultures, unusually fertile margins between two bioregions, like a continental-ocean shoreline or a clear blue lakeshore poised above green grassy plains and below glaciered and alpine forested mountains. Ecotones are broader when horizontal, or can be, but always comparatively narrow when delineated vertically, the boundary between worm cultures and above-ground human cultures and above-head atmospheric waves, ebbs and flows of radiant light and misty clouds, Full Moons and storied mysterious starlight. Our bilateral intelligence can also see an even sharper culling creolizing prime temporal ecotone riding the Great Transition divide between impossible invisibility of predicting distant healthy generations and lives, both healthy and pathological, extending back from each eternal moment, matriarchally integrative in reverse rememory to yesterday, last month, last year, former decades Who was that person, and how is s/he the same, and different than this me now? On back to each EgoIdentity's first interdependently autonomous awareness of embryonic creolizing bicameral life, Self inside matriarchal Sacred Other's paradise womb of MotherEarth DNA memory, hypostatic unions between lives stringing back through gracefilling RNA regenerate margins of unfolding fulfillment, primally ergodic rhythms and fractal 4Dimensioned patterns through temporal margins of reweaving revolving spiraling EcoTones, culling integrative nurturing time. This primal relationship, within each 0-sum moment, within MotherEarth's sacred ecology projects both back through Elder RightBrain interdependence and LeftBrain's secular-agnostic mistrust of futures not yet hoped for, of pasts now underground with worms in a cognitive-affective dissonant understoried world where only above ground anthro-centered lives matter, while below grows fading pathological climates of dualdark clouds while we remain both secular Left and Sacred Right talking past each other, rather than speaking through Prime PolyCulturing EcoTones, anthro-salient as sacred bicameral Earth, as above, so below, as past, so shall we become and notnot become future EcoHarmonic. We would have better moments, and better days, to remember both ecotones from which we came, and ecotones toward which we return, are each the same, secular thicker and sacred cutting edge, bilaterally divided by each co-integrative moment, like breathing in and breathing out, which is which, depends on whether you are DNA you or an RNA tree, or somehow reforesting, WinWin wu-wei both, growing parallel above/below ground deep listening nurturing learning to cooperatively communicate ego/ecotone root systems are also fertile DNA/RNA creolizing boundaries.

Wow! A cognitive poem if ever I read one.

Thx. But, help me out, please. What is a non-cognitive poem? A sunset maybe? An orgasm? Yet even these betray cognitive forms within their functions, I think?
