What I Didn't Know

People, Places, and Things I Didn't Know I Trusted I rather suddenly, and belatedly, realized I trust the highest and best use for language, for every community and communication of faith, for every school and pedagogical political enculturation, for every farm and forest, for every government, including self-replicating government, for every recreation and arts center, for every human and animal and Earth service agency, for every family and tribe and species, for every ego centered identity of every age past and to come, is to become the very best PermaCultural Designers and Developers possible, to achieve outstanding Continuous Quality Improvement Health and Safety ecological balance, multicultural, political, economic, inclusive of multi-regenerational outcomes. Our highest and best polyculturing vocations, given our current ego as anthrocentric health v pathology situation and creation story. Our PostMillennial Creation Story began in response to an AgriBusiness As Usual environment moving away from balanced political and economic norms about harvesting what you plant, transgender, and transgenerational complementary equivalence of authority and responsibility. This PostMillennial PermaCultural pedagogy of poli-economic design and development draws on older nutritional root systems, reseeding agribusiness norms with cooperative poli-economic principles for not only planting mutual subsidiarity and harvesting complementarity of regenerative health-trends, but also incorporates polypathic hunting and decompositional gatherings of mutually enriching engorging celebration of wisdom through past and future generations, assuming a benign cooperative (0)-zone interest co-arising trusting 0-Soul Host incarnating our landscaped universe of mutually subsidiary parasites, cooperatively loving our health-balancing yin-principle of integral-complementarity, co-empathic trust, integrity of health-normed polyculturing evolutionary compass. In PermaCulture Design environments, communication follows and leads a nutritionally-intended flow stream, with both confluent and some dissonant suboptimizing resonance, but producing basic healthy trust in WinWin communication within and between Informed/Exforming/Exformed/Reforming potential. "Waste" is pathology, loss, dissonance within outcomes, but heard as a potential poli-economic resource, a suffering that will teach us something we need to learn about how to never plan for WinLose outcomes. Never settle for less than (0)-remainder Ego-ReGenerative Trust, CoArising Empathic Balance. In PermaCulture Development planning, our first rule is to do no harm, following the principle of mutual subsidiarity. A corollary of note to program and policy developers and contract writers and pundits, be careful about what and whom we ask for, rather than with, and where we may under- and over-project ecological healthy outcomes in response to client investment. When organizing and developing well-integrated ecosystems, we optimize design by giving political preference to self-organizing, cooperative empowerment Principles of Complementarity, what Bucky Fuller comprehended more universally as Synergy, and Love of healthy integrating balance-harmonics. Community organizers and builders, religious co-empathic trust organizers, international communication developers and discerners, public and private therapeutic dialogue facilitators, health lobbyists and economists, all recognize that where one ends up is hugely and persistently boundaried by where and when and why one starts. Business As Usual does not trust mutual subsidiarity except in embryonic through innocent young child incarnations, with DNA-driven original ecosystemic norms of fractal-complementary fold/unfold thermodynamic balance. But my more permacultural business as usual begins with diversely entwined mutually defining and enriching, protecting and promoting, grassroot and vision-seed investors, wisely trusting our multicultural anthrocentric planning process and nutrition-balancing budget. My PermaCulture Trust in integral, holistic, and sacred principles of complementarity operates under and within geometric, biometric, systemic primal relationship assumptions of kosmic original intent: We are all poli-economically within this Golden Rule Universe together. Everyone, regardless of species or ecosystemic dialect and rhythm of identity, is a potential Golden Rule PermaCultural Ally, CoMentor in a (0)-core landscaped Universe. Metaphor and story, analogy and biology, ecology and teleology and theology, syllogisms and algorithms mutually comprehend this eternal moment's orthopraxis of (0)-footprint bicameral co-empathic trust. This radical and profound active trust is our complementary faith in time's unfolding nutritional balance, our understory of pedagogical deep-learning structures found within religion, ecology, trees, minds as also bodies, moments and days and years and centuries of evolving history, ReGenerative Open EcoSystemic Design. If this PermaCulture word had been visible to Bucky Fuller, writing about synergetic bio- and eco-systems, he might have entitled his universalist prosepoetry and design scriptures PermaCultural System Design and Development. When Thomas Kuhn's Problem of Incommensurability points to Solutions of CoEmergent MultiParadigmatic MultiRegenerational Commensurability, then I recognize dissonance within a more resonant meta-paradigm as more than hopeless suffering. We act in cooperative trust that dissonant notnot Absence of Potential Resonance, feelings of poli-economic longing for relational resolution, become our teachers of opportunities to avoid monocultural-trending climatic ego-identity crises. Noticing absence of fully matured relational trust unveils potential for more deeply integrating exegetical truths of mutual subsidiarity with eisegetical agapic-beauty of complementary vocations. Why settle for self or other; not healthy-wealth WinWin?
