Russell's Systemic Passions

Bertrand Russell was intrigued by systems theory, appalled by systemic racism within himself and others, corporations and churches not recognizing each other's wisdom also found in temples and synagogues and community investment banks and poor houses. He was also interested in political philosophy, power of aristocrats anticipating growing personal economic despotism offering no respite to green/blue democratic EarthLovers. A contemporary of Einstein's, who shared Russell's political philosophy and perhaps his interest in 4Dimensional prime NonZero-entropic space/time co-arising dipolar bilateral spatial/integral physical/metaphysical systems also sort of bicamerally structured Russell writes, "The reason physics has ceased to look for causes is that, in fact, there are no such things. The law of [unilateral linear] causality is a relic of a bygone age, surviving, like the monarchy, only because it is erroneously supposed to do no [win/lose, either/or leftbrain dominant reductive] harm." Here, Russell's parenthetical analogy betrays his political philosophy favoring natural/spiritual green/blue co-arising systemic democracy of We The Healthy MultiCultural EarthPeople causing and effecting monoculturing narcissistic aristocratic collective fantasies, anthropocentric Naked EarthExploiting Emperors. Causal systemic power travels down to up, like root systems toward flowers, nutritionally before, secondarily, communication flowing back top to down, like seeds embedding in Earth's co-invested future multiculturing fertile soil bearing multi-regenerational anticipated win/win fruits, Dipolar co-arising in polyphonic apposition more normatively nurturing than win/lose bipolar challenges of monoculturing, too aristocratically self-delusional short-term empowering aggressors leftbrain straight white western male predators on organic polycultural matriarchal fields of original nature/spirit win/win systemic energy in which each individual ego is EarthMother sacred eco-politically born For growing systemic democratic cooperative green energy, power, empowerment, enlightenment of integrity's systemic multiculturing potential for climate health, internally ego-inspiring spiraling spiritual as externally natural rooted organic ecosystems of life reversing monoculturing death.
