Unusual Nightmares

Life can be a different nightmare when philo-sophias self-righteously uprightly leave us behind so long in search of success measured in wealth of commodified acquisitions rather than health of natural/spiritual capitalization of virtuously co-managed left/right co-balancing cooperative structures for co-investing future resilience, Like a thirsty hummingbird living in a too-red environment, Like dissonant notes hiding in a too-rich symphony, Community, communion investing in health not as ordered by MotherEarth as demonic TaskMaster of perpetual raw-spot punishment in perpetually vicious win/lose competitions against past and future disgraced generations, rather than wealthy sacred interdependent venerations. Philosophers and politicians preachers and prophets parents and their prey might instead invest in Earth rights and lefts as our dance and play Mother embracing more cooperative win/win choreography, ecological theologies of color and scale, More of a sweet spot multigenerational tango searching out climatic self-governing unity rather than a righteous raw spot monocultural war of nightmartish lose/lose uniformity unto climate collapsing apocalypse, Mortality of life giving way to ecocentric wise dancing regenerations of local through global multicultural Earth, enjoying nature more cooperatively-managed, never competitively-owned in spiritualized theories of universal Yang Domination with too complexly uniform marching into fragmented war orders over-ruling uniting invitations into win/win multigenerational YinDance, Now wiser about distinguishing between individualistic capitalism, supporting business as usual monoculturally colonizing patriarchy And Earth's cooperative capitalization, actively inviting natural/spiritual sweet spot win/win dialogue more than raw spot, Who is the biggest Loser of vanishing success? academic debates Confusing wealth requirements with healthy response to What is winning? Since before liberating philosophers severed natural nutritional eco-healthy balance from spiritually robust wealthy ego-investment. Life in and on Earth's resonant ecosystems can be a different nightmare when philo-sophias self-righteously upright leave us behind so long in search of health's wealthiest eco-political success.
