John 3: 16 ReWrite
If John 3:16 is read as,
For God so loved Earth
that S/he gave up Her only begotten-beloved Child,
so all future regenerating generations
might have eternal timeless love lives.
it doesn't feel quite right.
It doesn't even sound rational,
nor consistently benign,
and echoes with justification for wars
all beginning to smell
like unfettered senseless abortions
of Earth's regenerative full potential.
Why does changing to a more matriarchal gender
have this more inclusive effect on how we see
economies of cooperative redemption?
relentlessly consistent with political empowerment
that does not include degenerative disempowering
Win later by Lose now
short-term dis-investment strategies.
Why is it OK for fathers to give up their sons
for redemptively justified wars
as if we were just paying a surtax
but if mothers give up their children
for longer-term redemptive investment purposes
some of us call it unjustified abortion
of matriarchal WinWin moral-ethical responsibilities?
Why is it not OK for Goddess the Mother
to sacrifice the health of a beloved child today
on behalf of a wealthier life for self and others tomorrow
but maybe it is justified
for God the Father
to economically and politically invest in suffering and crucifying loss today
to redeem our more regenerative future?
The science of neuro-anatomy
appears to also be the still evolving history
of Elder Survivalist BrainStem
giving WinLose, yet still beloved, birth
to our WinWin bicameral-stereo appositional cerebral cortex.
Within this sacred regenerative internal ecology,
John 3:16 might be historically mapped as,
For Elder WinLose BrainStem,
so loved by and for and with and of Earth's DNA/RNA energetic his/herstory,
that S/he gave birth to WinWin dipolar co-arising CerebralCortex
to co-mentor only both WinHealth Today
AND Win ReGenerative Tomorrow's co-optimizing wealth
of cooperative optimizing opportunity.
A problem for fascist and communist and any WinLose totalitarianism
is that, Win or Lose,
eventually even the most Central Committee or Cabinet or Cortex
either paranoid blows up in warring territorial flames
of ego-centric elitist nationalism
or dies from within
through corrupt hoarding too entitled much too long,
trying to fool all the people, including each other,
all the time
about why we are willing to invest other's sons and daughters
in our ecopolitical WinLose skirmishes of terrifying violence.
Nationalistic short-term navel-gazing grows elitist in the Core,
cells and organs and parties of WinLose ecopolitical self-empowerment,
without long-term Other nurturance.
Reptilian WinLose survivalist BrainStem
preys and extracts
prays and re-invests through competitions of short-term thinking
in response to self-predicated crisis,
while WinWin cerebral cortex
soars global opportunity
through long-term multiculturally regenerative design and planning
and yet also slugs on through further Business as Competitively WinLose Usual,
through OldBrain Systemic monitoring defense against unnecessary risk
of loss and suffering within this eternal-felt co-empathic now of trust
and synaptic felt antipathic distrust of pathological threats,
especially to Her/His beloved begotten children.
Each humane god/dess so beloving Earth
that we are willing to give up freedom of regenerative
reflective-reflexive internal privacy rights today
to co-mentor this co-redemptive ecopolitical society
of tomorrow's WinWin health-wealth,
regenerating further promise of bilateral Cerebral Cortexes
of co-empathic BrainStem trust.
