First entry in a proposed win/win deep learning cooperative systems theory series. Continued with The Earth Justice Proposal.

This story remains unfinished as do all the best tales told. Yet I must warn you it has a happy healthy ending, not dystopian, although not a finished political wealth utopia, Ever After LoveLife; warm accompaniment trusted energy of democracy Where this power story begins remains a mystery, like a definition for "Tao" more obscure than refining Yang with Yintegral co-relationship, like Right and Left wings, like supremely out lives and deeply in deaths Which is, and is not, equivalent with white and black, and all curious colors in-between masculine and womanist, left-brain dominant strength and right-brain prominent flow; liberties egalitarian and freedoms interdependent, powers and passions, climates and cultures, natures and nurtures secular and sacred, ego- and eco-systemic wealth as health, love as life I believe somehow this unfinished end revisits our Green Sanctuary origins, Earth as Eden, Humane life as divine love where Gaia danced with interior/exterior humane voices long before humanity was a twinned tremor in Her womb of left-brain verbally dominant becoming Her sacredly retold historic multiculture. Such a vast stage of DNA origin, hoary with memoried and imagined Time, affluently historical and effluently cultural, this is, or hopes to one day become, The Greatest Story Not Ever Told, if only because we have been so Business As Usual win-losing recycling spirals conjoining Alphas and Omegas, causes with effective recausing precausing great transitional beginnings with endings not yet visible, or even vicariously reheard, Not ever completing all Win/Win interdependent co-relationships TaoTime invites offers with compassion, gratitude, curious courage, transparent vulnerability. But, you were asking about New London in particular place and time, a Connecticut town of about 30,000, home of the Coast Guard and Pfizer and a Unitarian-Universalist Center everybody knows as All Souls and most every multicultural body repeats their logo, "Where all Souls are welcome." Strangely enough I think the GrantWriter was from out of town, without any long-term relationships in New London government or business or our eclectic religious sector. The GrantWriter: Such profound disconnection feels uncomfortable discomforting not accommodating, inappropriate for growing deep and wide compassion roots. So, I did what I do, I lived to write an unfinishable proposal about how to grow a resiliently healthy love life in and with and for New London, about why we each and all need a new win/win cooperative theory and practice for regenerative climate development; so also against degenerative overheated and frozen anti-health undevelopment of cognitive/emotive co-intelligence. Too much of my own learning experience emphasized the sterile science and dyspeptic un-communioned arts of grief about lose/lose monoculturing climate terror trends, So what would the opposite polycultural outcomes of such environmental disaster feel like? Look like? Taste like? Sound like? How would we reattach to sacred gratitude as a win/win dynamic co-passioned species? Now living in side-by-side autocratic/kleptocratic silo communities wrestling with win/lose economic capital-hoarding competition models for natural v spiritual v financial survival. Where are our active gratitude models for win/win healthy wealth optimization? EgoLogical and EcoLogical and TheoLogical Thrival? One day listening to Pamela Sparr, not New London talent, but encountered in an All Souls reading circle book, Justice On Earth, we cooperatively evolved five steps Out of Our Silos and Selves: 1) Propose a bolder win/win, left/right, ego/eco-balancing prophetic resilient image of a mutually compassionate ecopolitics. 2) Develop communally incarnated courage multicultural curiosity capacity to listen naturally left and spiritually right ego/eco-theo-biologically twinning twining nutritional. 3) Look for win/win gratitude experiences outside our side by side religious fractured sanctuaries and inside organic health farms of resiliently ego-masculine safe space for resonantly eco-wo/manist communication. 4) Engage with radical outdoor Earth voices for interdependent compassion power, energy democracy building up and out and down and in multicultural communion. 5) Increase win/win polycultural gratitude for secular/sacred nondualistic immersion experience health/wealth inspired cognitive/emotive co-arising 20-20 climate/culture peace revolutions. So Earth His/HerStory remains unfinished as do all the best love tales unfinishably told.
