Father Time's Surprising Taoist Intimations

Tell me,
Father Time,
if you would share this space
it would mean everything to me
to us, so kind,
which forms of integrative diversity
incarnate your highest priority,
most comprehensive,
social-political-economic-cultural issues:

1. Domestic economy flat-line trends,

2. International peace intent and praxis,

3. Universally perpetually optimizing CQI health care
practices and standards of outcome-production value,

4. Eco-centric and -logical regenerative revelation
in response to climatic, yet chronic, changes,
unbalanced monoculturating times,
evolutionary paradigmatic
as polydigital-language trending
symbiotic evolution?

Yes!
timelessly offered lifeskills Master Time.

Trying again:
In the unlikely event
that you have the capacity
to give a straight answer
to an eco-political question, 
theoretically far afield from your more temporal concerns,

Which of these four options best fits
your crystal-ball signs of cultural impact,
empowerment,
hunger,
critical climatic co-responsiveness
should Quinnipiac College survey
synergetic trends
across most likely voters
in our next national election?

Oh, so glad you finally said so.
Let's see...

Number One is too sad and hopeless
at either national or international levels,
but maybe if we interpreted "domestic"
as 'familial"
and/or 'local"
or even
"genetically tribal exegetical branches
and root systems of eco-enriching
in-co-arising-formination."

It's against our real time language rules
to make up language that does not meet
exe-culturating standards.

I would respond,
but I hardly know where to begin
reiterating the total number of double-negative
standards within your un-natural logos.

This has always been a problem for me,
knowing where to begin,
to end,
to continue our story.

Anyway,
Number Two glares too starry-eyed
for prickly realists,
academics,
attorneys and pyramid-structured financial insurance agents,
for struggling real property commodifiers
and landlords, and ladies, of Earth's Commons.

Number Three is too "liberal-Clinton" associated,
in the U.S.,
which is one of the few places
on Earth
where health-assurance continues to be a debated political and economic issue,
rather than an Earth Health Rights
environmentally inclusive
ecological imperative
to respond to global critically screeching
wilting, extinguishing, refuge-seeking demands.

Number Four speaks most clearly
to our stormy TransMillennial emergence generation,
syncing health as following eco-centric polycultural network optimization trends
of YangForm with YinYinFunction.

So, for young adults
through infants
of all currently incarnating
and co-evolving species,
I suggest Number Four,
to optimize culturally transformative healthy wealth
clout--
both effective health outcomes
evinced through Best Permacultural Practice research,
deductive-empowered,
and
anthro-epic mythic-rooted definition
for Beloved Climaxing Unto Near Diastatic,
Eco-Centric Community,
with concomitant Positive Psychology,
communication reiterating-regenerating
co-arising trends
for and from public/private discernment,
reductive harmony meets inductive prediction.

Internal,
like external,
climatic change
continues to forewarn
we are over-armed with mutually intended ballistics
while under-anchored
with mutually co-arising ballastic in-formation;
organic Earth's co-intelligent red sky
points both dusk and dawn
of this co-operating local/global economic network.

It is like pulling wisdom teeth
without appropriately timed
and functional anesthetics
to follow your run-on temporal syntax.
Father Time,
your words are too dense
for normal neural travel.

If you were consulting a potential political policy
to empower globally inclusive economic incubation,
which of the following four options
is your strategic choice
for mentoring Earth's residents
as faithfully
and lovingly
and effectively
and regeneratively
as possible
through our internal
and external climatic need
for positive healthy enculturating revolution,
designed to logistically deliver
sustainable health outcomes
through life's projected eternity
on planet Earth:

1 Eco-normic thermodynamic political balance?

2. Increasing healthy multisystemic ecotherapeutic relationships
between bio- and eco-systems?

3. Achieving an exegetically accepted
eco-logical polycultured metaparadigm
of analogic-steering
Fullerian Midway Tipping Points
as permacultural Yang/Yin
co-operative harmonic wu-wei discernment
for eco-climaxing regenerative outcomes,

4. (0)-square-root sprouting
our metaphysical spacetime eco-consciousness
on, in, of, by, through
bicameral 4-prime fractal
regenerate RNA-rooted
co-arising intelligence?

Cultural history might suggest
reiterating prior cycles of spiral-octave cultural evolution:

Number One gifts our nondual future
with TransParent NegErgodic
Co-Gravitational Cosmology,
giving birth to RNA
as Host of bilateral Time's awareness
(that's my familial line).

Number Two erupts RNA
eventually spawning Left-brain ego-dominant
deductive-languaged DNA's
lexicon of Yang/Yin double-fractal
Zero-Centric octave sets of frequency,
placeholders of confluently exegetical
positive/negative synaptically reiterative
transgenerational memory.

Number Three barters co-operative political relationships
with co-arising economic optimization,
Us-Them [P=N(NP)]
Win-Win Gaming Tree
on WWW's Earth-as-Universe
balanced electromagnetic
binary-bi-nomial form and function
unitarian languaged mainframing
redundant information discernment systems.

Number Four yet emerges a Positive-C
(or "e" or "P")
evo-logical language
balancing Time's timeless
Right-brain love
of symmetric pattern
and fractal-holonic rhythm frequencies
double-boundaried, self-justifying implicate order
of negentropic dia-syntax,
bi-cytosine as Not(Not-Uracil)
uniting +U/(+/-)C-fractal
defining SpaceTime's 4-prime bi-equivalency,
sustaining enculturation's cooperative economics
with co-arising
Win-Win
political=power
primal Tao (temporally bilateral and dipolar) co-relationship.

Two Wrongs Worth a Right

Today, our first “All About Me” History class begins
when we comprehend every day and night
co-arises with “All About We”
full-octave
Zero-centric
bicamerally encultured
and regenetically reiterated
in and through,
by and for,
before and after,
each moment of Earth Tribe’s timeless surfing times.

If your story
and history
or herstory,
is wrong,

If wrong is negative,
If right is positive,

When do two historic
two cultural
two personal
two political
two familial
two subspecies'
wrongs make it right,
just as a double negative polynomial equals a polynomial positive?

Perhaps when this double-negative shy yinyin,
playing the role of wu wei,
issue develops linear appositional polarity
comprehended
as negative correlational and co-arising
Tipping Point
of co-gravitationally balancing outcome indicators
of optimizing Continuous Quality Improvement
embracing permacultural health 
and defensive eco/egojustice with contenting peace
and positive economic
and environmental outcome indicators.

Sexism breeds reverse sexism
as racism breeds reverse racism,
two appositional wrongs,
looking for a median flow
creolizing right,
an ego/eco-centering polypathic consciousness.

When the Industrial Age WRONG trend
toward oppressing yin feminist intuitive,
cooperative
empathic
inductive information processing
and Wisdom Languaged systems
PLUS
the coincidentally nondual co-arising Information Systemic TransMillennial Stage
of Left-brain dominant language
competitionOVERcooperation reverse-equity WRONG (about value-neutral capitalism's antidemocratic evolution, anyway)
deductive-reductive STEM monocultural norms for rational information v. analogical/ecological-temporal-spaciated-sequential-revolving-seasonal-reasonal-health-wealth creolizing wealth,
ecological enculturation,
digital-quantified, commodified, domesticated,
wrongly over-weighted
as of more evolutionary scientific nutritional value
than analogical/ecosystemic
lexical dialectic,
racial-cultural dialectal diversity,
gender balance in political and economic diastatic systems
as Yang/Yin bicameral Left/Right balance comprehended
hypostatic ego/eco-consciousness
bilaterally RIGHT

When hubris WRONG 
of overly competitive commodified domesticated information
enculturation
evaluation
political wealth

co-arises

WRONG undervalue
for cooperative gift-it-forward
Zero-EgoBalanced Interest
EcoNormics
Organic EcoSystem Interior and Exterior Consciousness Landscapes,
deep nurturing ecology of health optimization
for all binomially normative Earthcentric biosystems,
all co-arising with co-falling consumer-producer political economies
all infolding with outfolding fractal-holonic dialectal dipolars,
all inhaling with exhaling RIGHT Earth Tribes.

When the WRONG
most over-heated, wilting,
unraveling,
political-economic competitive Win-Lose Game
early health and wealth marginalized losers
begin to notice,
then listen,
to comprehend ecoconsciousness,
why life’s, nature’s, Earth’s
reweaving
cooperatively co-gravitational
and thermodynamically permaculturally balanced
health as wealth standard ecocultures,
ecologicians
ecotherapists
eco-normists for political/financial ego-cooperative AND ecosymbiotic 
struggling-with (not struggling-against)
ecobalance,
wu wei tipping points
shyly lurking in mythos engaging logos,
Wisdom Language,
syntax
dialectics
nondual co-arising ReGenesis
of full-life

equals

diastatic
synergetic
polyculturally climaxing
Love-Beloved EcoPolitical Community.

Let our polycultural cooperative
emergent composting party
begin.
Our egg is fertile,
our Time is PostMillennially
culturally ripe
with bicameral dipolar decomposers, 
analyzers, 
programmers, 
policy discernment facilitators,
of political and familial and personal ecosystemic rights
of freedom toward balanced ecological healthy wealth,
with mutually subsidiary double-binding boundaries
excluding ego/eco imbalanced relationships and transactions.

Positive Polynomial Zero
is informationally equivalent
to double-negative Polynomial Zero.

“Yin” is Lao-tse’s “non-being”
as metaphysical as not-now Special Case
except for NOW
as organically-systemically articulating
with full
or near-full trending Yang/Yin
co-arising dialectical diastatic ecobalance
in Special Case physical-natural Universe,
surfing timelessly through Time’s 3-dimensional spaciating
co-gravitational 
linear-implicate TransParently balanced 
progenitive relationship 
with space.

Primal issues
wear two faces:

Yang asks,
How do we cooperatively intend and practice optimizing
our cultural environment
to facilitate-evolve
healthy individuals,
including ourselves,
with co-resonant respect for our most diastatically
inclusively imaginable voices,
minds,
consciousness?

While Yin asks,
How do we/I not lose sight of,
how do I/we defend,
my/our ego-self’s healthy esteem
by optimizing my/our individual/communal
freedom to fully articulate
our most deeply held sense of “ego/Yang” = “eco/yinyou(+/-)yinother”
bicameral balancing identity?

How do we hang onto our most polyculturally,
yet intimately,
held Positive-Esteem Cooperative Psychology,
as individuals (Interior Landscape of ego-boundary identity)
and as a species (Exterior Landscape of eco-freedom boundary identity)?

These two Landscapes bicamerally reside within each human mindbody
of co-arising evolutionary RNA/DNA-syntaxed balance,
DNA dialected for thermodynamic balance,
fractal-temporal-neural syntax normed
at (0)-soul point of political and economic equi-optimizing interest intent
toward PolyCultural EcoConscienceness.

All About Me days
self-perpetuate
All About We life,
relational/transactional integrative integrity of  love.

Positive Life is only the cooperative integrity of each bicameral moment’s
potential for co-arising revolutions of  love,
baby,
Beloved Community is our polycultural love revolution.

Spread nutrients around,
we’re catching on
when we organically pitch positive compost.

Please send in your questions.
Class dispersed for our further evolution.

YangyYolks with YinYin-Whites

Start and end each day,
and life,
with a taoist egg.

I doubt my eggs are religious.

No, but they are natural,
organic incubators, 
co-arising nondual yolk form
with white-transparent regenerative function,
teleology,
and cosmology, maybe,
if you're a chicken,
or a turkey, or a sitting duck.

So you say. 
I guess these eggs are merely metaphysical.

You might best remove "merely" from "meta"
lest you perpetuate an oxymoron.
Metasystemic physics,
like life, 
at their best, and most permanently encultured, 
have room for culture and language and religion and spirituality, 
as well as economic science and eco-logical nature.

OK, but I'm not absorbing this political empowering metaphysics
of a co-arising incubator,
or an egg,
or whatever.

Eggs are temporary organic incubators.
Therefore, comparatively Closed-Set,
double-boundary individuated.
Only their exterior shells 
remain actively interdependent with their environ-mental 
risk and opportunity.
This double-boundary formatting eco-centric development
responds to thermodynamic balance
both yolk-cellular
and transparent organic/holistic fuel,
energy,
fertilizer,
compost of 4-channel co-operatively balancing synergetic organization.
Eggs are sensitive to co-gravitational pressure
and have bilaterally limited tolerance levels for speed of climatic change,
which interact with their relative temperatures,
temporal sense of internal heat and exterior cold,
breathing in and out,
slower warm and faster cold.

Maybe I am lost in the forest of your analogizing
but sounds more like you are co-arising
well-composted ego in these eggs.
And, this shell sounds like a scientific eco-paradigm,
with some seriously revolutionary boundary issues,
mutually incompatibility building up a defensive perimeter, 
anti-inductive while pro-deductive
of in-formation dissonance
protecting internal design process,
even language and enculturation,
secluding indigenous specialists to research within,
maybe.
Still not seeing the Tao in this egg, 
or ego,
or co-arising incubator,
or whatever whenever 
originates
and cultivates 
new life.

If Yang is the power of yolked formation,
incarnation,
while Yin is bilateral-squared flow and function
of ecologically positive octave-frequency nutrients,
regeneratively composting embryonic fractal forms
of RNA/DNA-rooted teleological function,
grace,
then which is this full-colored economic health-yolk
and which is this transparent ecological webbish white,
and is it healthier if they tango gracefully,
or tangle bad karmically?

OK, yes, now I see the taoist, well-timed, egg. 
This begins to feel like egg-cooking class for a vegan. 
Now what?

An embryo is a "budh", 
if you are a conscientific Buddha-brain
co-arising embryo,
and a "bud"
in English.
If you imagine your Left brain ego-identification
as your egg's DNA yolk-center
being fed most eco-nutritiously 
by your RNA-inclusive 
SuperEco Right-Only Bilateral
Not-Languaged Eco-Exegenesis
TransParenting cultural fuel-power 
of yin binomial light squared = c-squared 
= e-squared prime-relational Wisdom,
that might be how a post-millennial eco-scientist
would incubate,
design,
and research, 
and nondually bicamerate incarnation,
comprehensively con-scientific 
polyculturally co-operative 
co-arising consciousness
as co-regenerative enlightenment.

So, we are all economic scientists balancing ego-logical 
as eco-normative systems.  
Homo Bicameral Sapiens as EcoNomists.

Almost. 
But, because Yang (+) ego/eco-bodies
are dipolar incarnations 
of Yin's transparently co-arising eco-soul intention,
Yin is Yang equivalent only as squared,
or double-negatived,
or double-bound,
or double-identified,
or both-and
as well as either-or,
or dipolarly frac-taled,
like RNA strings of regenerating in-metaphysic-formation,
coincidentally co-arising
balancing eco-binomial 
[prime root of "polynomial"] 
Right intuitive fractal-octave frequency harmonic
in RNA/DNA's spacetime natural co-arising systemic consciousness.

Wow, dude, that's some really esoteric shit you've been smoking!
Left-yolks just bangin' gracefully away
with Right
TransParently flowing evolutionary information
of eco-conscientific revolutions.

Maybe, 
but sticking with generic embryonic Left-brain beginnings,
embryonics, genetics, metaphysics,
a bicameral Taoist ego language developer
might re-paradigm "esoteric" as "eco-terra"--
Earth's ecological syntax-normative
autonomic intelligence,
as ubiquitously displayed
in co-gravitated fractal-root tree structures
of healthy temporal-spatial cellular development,
emerging from aptic-universally transparent
plasmatic
permacultural awareness
appreciation of a more aptic-thru-synaptically inclusive
bicameral Right-unitarian with Left-universalist eco-consciousness.

Now you're saying we are a species of anonymous Buddhists,
Taoists,
and also Unitarian Universalists?
You know,
that "anonymous Christian" conjecture
by Hans Kung
really didn't get great reviews
from many multi-religious exegetes.

Yes,
but Christianity is a theistically framed view
of our shared eco-consciousness,
our Original Story,
while UUs,
Taoists,
and Buddhists
emerge naturally bilateral co-arising principles of shared consciousness
as self-proclaiming exegetical teleology
incarnating systematic theology;
an ecologic of Fuller's Universal Intelligence,
Yang-Form with Yin-Function, nondually unitarian,
assumes co-gravitational balance as transparent purpose
toward discerning ego-satisfactory meaning (and "meme"ing),
for "Universe",
"Earth", and all DNA/RNA encrypted Earth Tribes
sharing a cooperative vocation
to balance our co-gravitational solidarity
with our thermodynamic eco-DNA/RNA harmonic default preference
for Win-Win mutual Yolk and White subsidiarity,
reverse-hierarchical governance eco-norms,
electromagnetic with elder webbed transparent nutrients
co-mentoring infant yolk.

I think more rainbowed folks
will like these yolks
but I'm not so sure our whites
will appreciate such co-arising/co-falling transparency.

Ecclesia

An old Greek word, ecclesia,
is often translated as church,
but could also be thought of as a civilization
acting civilly,
as a citizenry
acting as responsible citizens.

The noun side of Ecclesia
casts residents as consumers
of democratic and economic cooperative systems,
while the verb side
speaks of residents as producers of democracy
and economically cooperative relationships,
communications,
transactions,
economic investments in and for each other.

I believe it is a stretch of original Intent
to believe that democratic constitutions
derived from and of and for a democratic citizenry,
would not also have this consumer-producer meaning
when speaking of citizens,
human rights and responsibilities,
of our individual and shared cooperative balance
of co-empowering authorities.

A democracy's citizen
is a consumer of each state's cooperative ecopolitical networks
but this is not sufficient to grasp both sides
of the pre- and post-revolutionary intent
when legislating of, by, and for us cooperatively acting citizens,
producing decisions and choices,
deliberations and citizen debates,
internally oppositional, and often contentious,
but never disloyal to our underlying democratic cooperative project,
loyal producers of co-regenerative intent,
benign, not parasitic,
available to have our minds preyed upon
but not available to predation, 
rabid competitions,
assault on our bodies.

Physical and verbal violence to inflict retributive terror
are not within our democratic arsenal of citizenship,
acting as a body of citizens,
and as individual citizen-productive bodies.

"A well regulated militia
being necessary to the security of the state,
the right of the people [ecclesia]
to keep and bear arms
shall not be infringed."

In U.S. history,
this language, penned by James Madison,
was in the context of protecting and asserting State Rights
of self-preservation
for democratic self-optimizing purpose.

In earlier English history,
this right of armed self-defense
roots back toward ancient cultures
of natural-spiritual individual rights
to respond to predators
intruding on personal/familial, tribal space
with rapacious intent
to kill or maim,
to inflict pain,
sometimes sexual, sometimes not,
to capture and directly enslave
or capture and sell people not recognized as ecclesia
so they could be sold as a capitalist cash crop,
perhaps way back, captured as an edible,
to respond to nutritionally urgent needs,
but probably not first preferences.

Armaments, during these originating roots of natural rights
of self-defense
probably began with sticks and stones,
then knives and spears,
then boomerangs and bows with arrows.

All fascinating original intent history,
yet little, if any, of this original ecclesia intent
of local and state militias preserving armed rights
to protect against individual predators,
and other organized citizen predators,
acting in an extremely Originally UnIntended
aggressive way,
as if mutual competitors,
rather than mutual ecopolitical ecclesia cooperators,
suggests the NRA's legislative agenda
is anything less or more than hate-mongering
organized crimes against a strong healthy natural-spiritual right
of healthy robust democratic citizens
to defend ourselves
against those who would act against,
compete against
healthy citizen consumers of democratic process
acting as cooperative producers of robust ecclesia,
cooperative ecopolitical co-loyalists,
co-deliberators,
ecotherapeutic citizens of Earth,
and also, by the way,
cooperatively self-regulating States,
and democratic nations.

The NRA's ecopolitical agenda
has nothing to do with the U.S. Bill of Rights
including the Second Amendment.

It has everything to do with growing anti-ecclesia,
antiAmerican
anti-social pathologies,
rather than robust natural-spiritual rights
of democracy producing sacred bodies
of cooperativity,
rather than mutual threat
and unnecessary intimidation.

If the Second Amendment had originally said:

A well-regulated slave market
being necessary to the security of the capitalist state,
the right of the people 
[especially slave owners--and explicitly not including slaves themselves]
to keep and bear arms
should not be infringed 
[except for non-ecclesia, wild indians and black/red slaves].
Does this not look and sound and smell
much closer to the NRA's legislative agenda
of self-preserving supremacy
and support for uncontrolled ballistics profiteering,
than the historical articulation
penned by James Madison?

It is not controlling the rights of individual citizens
to fire ballistics at each other,
and to support those who have grown rich
through this anti-democratic corruption,
that is a violation of our Bill of Rights
to act as producers of active cooperative democracy
so much as the absence of control
over antisocial consumers and producers of hatred,
including first and front and center
the NRA of unAmerican organized crimes
against healthy-wealthy
nature-spirit cooperators.

Natural rights to bear arms against other people,
as compared to natural rights to eat, to hunt,
are cooperatively normed,
rather than competitively mediated,
especially within a democratic-intending polity.

Arms, in this historical context,
are tools for self-defense
which, in a democracy,
as codified in the US First Amendment,
begin with the right to cooperatively communicate,
to speak and listen with and among each other,
without need to fear being fired upon.

These natural-spiritual roots to self-defense
and citizenry optimization
are pre-linguistic,
so all the more pre-rifle dis-associations,
pre-ballistics of any kind.

Our Second Amendment,
of and for whom we are becoming
as a democratic-producing people
with natural rights
of cooperative self-regeneration,
to normally speak and listen together WinWin,
and abnormally compete against each other
WinLose,
as WinLose un-democratically provoked
through acts of violence,
armed fear-mongering.

We are WinWin people 
disarmed by candor and curiosity
for Original Ecclesial Intent.

People of Faith

It's hard to say where and when our town's People of Faith Cooperative started.

After all,
we have all emerged together,
and are still emerging
people of TaoGod,
right?

Our faith includes defining our still humanizing species
as among those not capable of autonomously regenerating ourselves
into our divine health functions,
or even our more pathological dysfunctions
as a People of Multiculturing Faith.

Even Saint Peter, who was probably no one's idea of a writer and actor
and co-redeemer 
who identified himself as one of the common folk,
and most certainly not in a position to be remembering
TaoGod's grace somehow includes enslaved women,

Even Elitist Patriarch Peter
cooperatively committed to
"Those formerly enslaved
and raped
and owned
and rented at the will of their owners
with approximate value of the food they eat,
water they drink,
air they breathe,
kids they breed
to become chronically repressed,
not even recognized as a fully human Tribe,
are now the cooperatively creolizing women and men,
including all God's "Bless His Heart" liberties
and proclivities
and frivolities,
and robust, resonant thriving cooperativities,
bound only by our Golden Rule
as the becoming people of regenerative/degenerative TaoGod.

Well, OK, so I threw in a little extra stardust
that St. Peter didn't explicitly say,
but would it be fake news that these transliterations
may be implied?

And further economized,
quite ecologically,
and cooperatively WinWin Game Theoretic robust,
as always pay Yes forward
unless you have LeftBrain historical proof
that this Other,
also of TaoGod/dess Earth,
defines cooperatively active love
as more for autonomous Ego Identities,
than for Cooperative RightBrain HolySpirit-EcoFlow Optimization,
WinLeft/WinRight Cooperative
(0)-sum Ecologically Reiterative-Dialectal Economics.

Anyway,
another way to begin this energetic cooperative story
was when I decided
not only could I not afford
to not put a solar panel system on my house,
but my neighbors and my town also could not afford
for me to continue consuming from 88% nonrenewable fuel-produced electricity,
when I could switch to producing 100% radiant solar-rooted electricity
for my family,
and a surplus to flow back
to our town's cooperatively owned grid.

Or, you know,
something like that.

So, if I could do this,
only pay for about half of the system myself
(so, about $10,000,
while relying on the generosity of our combined tax revenues
for the other nearly half)
and also get a 0-interest loan,
with a 10 year repayment calendar,
and in return eliminate my electric bill
and my water bill,
because water and gas and sewer service, like electricity
are owned by my town's cooperative utility corporation,
then why wouldn't everyone,
especially TaoGod's no longer enslaved
and owned and rented people
having chronic issues
with affording to stay in regenerative homes,
with potential capacity to produce solar-cycled electricity,
and, if oversized,
but not overpriced,
also have a cooperatively intended interest
in collecting less bills
they cannot afford to pay.

So, the originators of our town's People of Faith Cooperative
began with those "Bless Their Heart" properties
defining why our Utility Cooperative
was budgeting over 2 million dollars
in bad debt
each year.

And, as you might suspect,
the large majority of this incapacity to produce cash
came from a handful of repeat offenders.

And, many of our People of Creolizing Faith Cooperative originators
just happened to live in some of these under-performing properties,
or had,
or knew somebody who did.

For every owner of these problem child properties
who installed a solar,
and then, later on, solar and wind-turbine system,
the Coop received $200.
$100 of which went back to the coop member
who brought this deal to contract,
to buy groceries
or maybe a cell phone
allowing internet access
through their cooperative membership.

So everybody's happy.
The Utility Cooperative is decreasing bad debt trends
and increasing clean energy percentages
and increasing indigenous production percentages,
so we can trend toward becoming a producer town,
that is a NewEngland positive extra energy town
more than a degenerative negative-loss consumer.

We further suspect and actively hope,
that as the towns around us follow suit,
not just trump,
then this cooperative of clean energy producers
will help NewEngland become a net clean energy producer,
and so on.
Sort of like thinking global systemically,
but also local economically,
including personally,
and then acting cooperatively
from ego-center within toward eco-centering without,
from YinRight toward YangLeft
nondually co-arising our People of MultiCulturing Cooperative.

Also a winner on this growing list,
People of Faith now also harvest humanure,
modeled on soil therapy programs
already well-established in Japan,
which allows us to plant and care for
a growing urban forest
of fruit and nut and fig trees,
and berry bushes (no thorns, kid and family friendly)
and various beds of rhubarb and asparagus
and perennial onions,
and so on,
including strawberry fields forever,
which these same People of Faith
forage and graze on
as they wander around downtown,
now partially closed to auto traffic,
facilitated by the cooperative bike-share project,
which was funded through profits
from the Cooperative's recycling solar panel industry
and solar-wind hybrid installation services.

And, the town government gets 10% of net
from the Utility Cooperative,
so that has gone up a bit,
as bad debt goes down,
and now we can afford to pay cooperative producers
of electricity at almost our retail rate,
so the People of Faith Cooperative
has been saving some of this income
to help cooperative members
buy the solar-heated buildings
they have been renting,
as cooperative landlords and ladies age
and decide to move elsewhere,
although the list of reasons for relocation
continue to fade away
as we slow down
to smell our well-composted forest
we have cooperatively become.

EcoTherapist Conventions

Truth is a feather 
pushed off to the other side.

Truths are a body of feathers
within which our bodies reside.

OK, students of life’s healthiest purposes and meanings,
it’s time to regather, if you would be so kind.

Namaste.

[Silence]

[My EcoTherapist is trying to recall our bicameral minds with ecological bodies.]

[More kinda creepy silence.]

[I wonder if I have time for a cigarette.]

How do you understand “mind” as other than “body”?

[OK, she leads with a dualist assumption
for a session advertised as nondualist,
so the correct answer must be,
I don’t.]

Which, mind or body, do you believe came first,
or do you believe,
as I do,
consciousness and biosystems co-arise nondually?

[I knew it!
Biosystems are self-identifying consciousness-rememory 
DNA-encoded systems, or RNA, if you’re a tree or something green,
from before the time when physical root systems
transubstantiated into metaphysical regenerate root bilateral,
then bipedal, 
then bicamerally balancing,
eco-political systems.
I remember our history of biological evolution co-mentoring sessions,
out on the coral reefs of time’s surfing copresence.]

If mind emerges from reiterative and redundant and resonant neural-cellular development,
in these, and probably other, senses co-arising nondually,
then what do you think could survive of your Ego identity
upon total biosystemic flatline demise of your natural-chemically elementary cellular body?

From where would sensory consciousness and memory emerge?
From when, and for how long?

[Hang on there now. I’m stuck back on the where question, 
which I think should probably default as Nowhere,
Ego emerges from nowhere?
No, no, If dead,
then Ego as sensory consciousness and memory is nowhere
at that time, and on into the future of EarthTribal evolutionary history.
No such phenomenon.
No such experience within continuous Earth-spinning Time.
I think?
But only as long as I dance this Ego-consciousness string
I am]

As your mindbody decomposes,
is this really still your Ego’s story?
In that future time of opportunities for health and relationship
and transactions,
capacities for ongoing communication,
you struggle to face their mortal loss now, projecting forward,
we struggle together to find faith 
these lost opportunities are not your post-critical event
of loss, decay, absence, inevitable physical and mental defeat.

[I don’t even have faith that anyone will think that day
has come even one day too soon.
Nor would I care to invest in such an unwise faith.]

Or,
in the face of this inevitable termination of Ego’s mindbody story,
do you, 
as unfolding conscious memory-string of continuous information,
transform into your nutritionally reiterating responses and contributions
yet reverberating within EarthTribe’s ReGeneration Story?

Is your Ego expanding out toward Earth’s Story?
pregnant pregenetic, nearly timeless Creation Story,
out and yet deeply into this Elder (0)Riginal Intent.

Body memory transforming within ecopolitical truths of post-taoist beauty,
remembering—revolving—rewinding—reweaving
ecologic of Ego/Eco balancing
embryonic bicameral
dipolar cognitive/affective neural emergence
(0) CommonsCentered DNA/RNA code—syntax
healthy reverse development instructions
for normative natural/spiritual
mind/body elational resonant resolutions
giving oneself birth into this body’s time
as giving ourselves freedom
for time’s codependent love of light ourselves.

[My self-image emerges rather far toward the depressive side
of love as ecoconscious light myselves.
Oh, wait, maybe that connection between agape as Basic Attendance,
understory of all those relational dramas, and nonrelational boredoms,
and fears,
and angers,
and….]

Memories,
knowledge,
thoughts,
comprehension,
dissonance and dismay,
feelings of elation and relation,
anticipation,
innocence,
ignorance,
love and hate,
anger and fear,
all Ego’s products,
as Ego, in turn, is produced
by unfolding DNA instructions
within a nurturing DNA-developed warm embryonic pronoic womb
living in this specific time
within  Earth’s evolution of continuing ecosystemic health-consciousness.

[Oh, I get it, health as therapy-consciousness.
Puts a postmillennial twist on post-doctoral medicinal sciences.
Kind of self-serving, though, 
unless all humane-nature is for ecotherapeutic vocations,
in dying as in living,
in living as optimally visible through mortality’s timeless lens.]

What we inherited from Elder wombs of Time’s incarnation
is what Ego becomes
to cherish as responsible authority
rooted within teleologically exegetical historic evidence
unveiling regenerative evolutions as cooperative nested-networks,
and to let go free as a last pay-it-forward gift
to nurture future healthy regenerations of time
bilaterally echoing
fractal-polypathic light,
(0)-TaoWombTime.

[Why do I feel like I could use a bath
more than a cigarette?]

Time,

[I’m wondering if there is something in Taoist water
that regenerates this wu wei balance
spinning through my bicamerally revolving mind
as body?]

Could you become as curious about other’s Ego development stories
as you have obsessed about your own?

[Wait a minute,
when did I give you the OK to label me as self-obsessed?
Or maybe the balance point here 
invites comparisons between obsessive curiosities,
in which case
perhaps my own Ego health constant revival
does indeed lie most mortally on my failing mind.]

If so,
please note differences
but memorize Earth’s natural systemic similarities,
especially about what we all want our end to say
one day's capacities for love as peace,
about gradually subsiding incapacities of anger Ego losses
and fear of/for future Earth as sacred compost, 
transubstantiating post-climatic residency.

Namaste.

[Namaste.
Oh wait,
was I supposed to write that out loud?]

Sacred Numbers

Numbers, numerals,
like words,
combinations of letters,
mean something,
sometimes more secular,
sometimes more sacred ecological.

Numerals and letters share sacred iconic human-intelligence root systems
within a bicameral ecology of mind-body nonduality,
both RightBrain matriarchal empowering flow of integrity (Czikszentmihalyi)
and LeftBrain patriarchal Yang deductive empowered language
of ecological-bilateral numerals (B. Fuller).

Numbers,
like rhythms and fractal-holonic patterns,
show up in nature,
as natural primal relationships
with the revolutions of seasonal eco-development time.

We have Century Plants
blossoming only once in 100 years.
Where did they learn their metric-memory skills,
RNA-rooted intelligence?

We have histories of locusts
swarming every 25 years.
How many generations is that
in locust co-intelligence?

We have Old Faithful.
How do these bio-ecosystems know when it is time to show up,
and when it is time for Business As Usual,
not show off?

When is it time for numeric revolutionary performances,
and more aptic time for normal evolutions
of everyday,
in-between
fertile enhealthing
enriching
ecological seasons?

Bicamerally-bilaterally structured humans
have 1,000 year millenniums,
boundary periods of ecological discernment,
sacred-secular nondual potentials increased
for Left-Right balance development,
scientifically conservative yet also spiritually progressive,
for healthier conversations between our Yang Patriarchal languaged LeftBrains
and our Yin-Matriarchal-Integral
relational rhythmed 
ecological patterned,
formed,
symmetric
sacred-iconic nurturing RightBrain.

These revolutionary recycling events
feel more sacred
then humdrum secular
not 100th year,
not 25th year,
not one thousandth year,
and yet there is a building up prophetic era
emerging from secular medians
toward sacred climax,
just as there is a  sacred afterglow of memory
reweaving these repurposing miracles
of life's iconic mysteries.

What if LeftBrain has developed iconic political powers of language
speaking of, and longing for,
regenerative conservation of ecologically healthy meaning,
purposive,
naturally effective,
cooperative communicating;
while RightBrain,
older on the phylogenic ladder of DNA revolution
of what had been RNA monotheistic root systemic
health-wealth normative evolutionary symmetries of cooperative health?
Matriarchal reverse-hierarchical extending family trees,
singing and dancing
marching and flying and swimming
diastatically climaxing for and with economic-ecologic
iconic seasonal re-integrity,
wealth ionic-contenting health,
karmic flow of right-timed bliss,
erotic through agapic sacred grace
of regenerate health-wealth co-arising
Left-Right nonduality,
ego/eco-political empowering attitudes of polypathic trust,
(0) soul, sum, core millennial balancing.

A great deal has been LeftBrain written
about the iconic historical evolution of numerals.
Perhaps a great deal more has been felt
about the RightBrain embryonic ElderMatriarchal womb,
virginal bilateral emptiness
of polypathic-estrogenetic zero (0),
and the LeftBrain Yang convex-vertical
prominant testoster-oned one (1).

But, both seem to ecologically deliver themselves
in PositiveRegenerative and NegativeDegenerative spectral multicultural varieties,
balancing at the DoubleNegative tipping points of equivalence,
Left-Right cognitive confluence,
rather than cognitive-affective ecologically more secular climates
of everyday Business As Usual competitive political dissonance.

What might it mean to have 2020 bicameral ecopolitically balanced ReVolutioning Vision?
To bicamerally hear,
to multicultural civil eco-service rights and wrongs taste,
to matriarch-cooperative network
economic slow diastatic-fertile growth of ecological-flow feel,
ecopolitically co-arising nondual post-millennial mindbodies
of Left-Right ego/eco-balancing consciousness?

It's 2017.
A lot of permaculturally nutritious ecopolitical designs could emerge
before the upcoming 
nondual-loving
secular-sacred 
revolutionary Roaring 2020s.

Interesting about early 2017 new not-so-Presidential Executive Orders
to immediately dismantle,
by means of neglect to feed and water,
our imperfect frames for national access to health care
and national, even international, access to global climate health,
to the full extent now lawful.

How could this be any post-millennial climate health afterglow at all?
I wonder in bicameral dismay.


As we incarnate 2020 Vision
among Washington's pay for public services rendered,
would it not be our health and safety collective duty
to defend regenerative health and happiness,
safety and prosperity,
freedom from unhealthy exploitation of Earth's resources
and freedom toward healthy development
of regenerative climate bio and ecotherapies?

What could our democratic unity of ecopolitical states
of healthy and secure mind and body nondually mean,
if not to cooperatively pursue healthy biological
and ecological
climates?

So these Executive Orders
appear uncivil nonservice,
intrinsically anti-health and happiness AntiConstitutional to me,
for any civil servant of health and safety
anathema of plutocratic anthrocentric hubris,
both politically and economically untenable
for our shared healthy futures,
and future health regenerations.

Are these early indicators that anti-regenerative supremacy
has become a self-impeaching
excommunicating offense
against basic first premises of a fearlessly trusting democracy,
freedom of and for health and safety
of fertile cooperative 2020 integrity
of ecotherapeutic character,
WinWin politically cooperative
defensively secure development
of growing climate health-progressive trends,
ecological-economic nondual opportunities
to reduce high-risk competitive climates of dehumanizing
dualistic
nature-spirit anti-ecological pathology.

Numbers, numerals,
like words, composed of iconic letters and declarative constitutions,
mean something secularLeft-sacredRight nondual
rising 2020 ReVolution.

Cooperative Family Politics

I think he's talking about a cooperative bicameral political system,
with "How to talk to the other side".

And what could that possibly mean, dear Yang?

Well,
I was watching this Ted-talk from Marin,
by Robb Willer, as I anciently recall,
while reading George Lakoff's "Political Mind",
still...

Yes, dear,
you really talk about Lakoff's ecopolitical organic-systemic mind
a bit too much.
I prefer opera.

Speaking of what that could possibly mean,
but, anyway,
Yes, I was reading Lakoff and listening Willer,
both probably influenced by Berkeley ecopolitical acclimation,
now post-millennially evolving
from Gregory Bateson's Sacred Ecology,
which was also sometimes bicameral-appositionally structured
to bilaterally invite both-and comparisons
where LeftBrain dominance competes either-or survivalist evolutions.

Now I couldn't possibly be more lost
in your polysyllables
where I prefer polypathic rhythms,
jazzier occupier beats of revolution.

This is starting to sound like an opera version
of Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf.
So, as I was saying,
this bicameral picture, from Lakoff, and Willer, and Bateson...

I'm sorry, honey.
Was that the Berkeley natural ecopolitical law firm
you were reading,
and watching?

No! Not a law firm...
Well, OK, whatever.
As I was trying to say,
the political version of natural ecological law string of reasoning
draws a geopolitical frame of perennial competition
between Patriarchal health and safety values for monocultural purity,
and for patriotic-nationalistic loyalty,
often reified down to militaristic aggression
using encultured rhetorical models
of and for WinLose evolutionary theology.

Hang on, there,
this feels like a rather bad review
for our bicameral relationship,
which I have always found more WinWin Positive,
than, you know...
too Yang Dominant inappropriately aggressive.

Well, that's because you and I know how to co-mentor
our caregiving and receiving ecopolitics
in this little organic ecosystemic landscape we have designed
and matured together,
equivalent bilaterally.
When I carry on in my LeftBrain geopolitical dominating way
you just sleep and murmur of my becoming too tightly associated
with 
Western White Gods of Master Racing
monoculturally marching toward health and safety freedoms for all;

OK, well..
maybe not so much for those who have drifted off toward the margins
of this landscape;
more for conservation-oriented
mature healthy and wealthy Patriarchs,
but then, that's how God the Father
designed my ecopolitics,
so never mind about that little lack of well-integrated
not quite ecosystemic balancing theology.

My patriarchal LeftBrain point
remains our health and safety,
although I do have this fascination with virginal monocultural purity
and fraternal loyalty
to Fathered Fertile Landscapes,
waves of horny grain.

Oops. I think you did a little RightBrain slip there.
But, I get your idea,
and I know you also appreciate this other progressive-liberation theology side,
where we find our more integrative,
matriarchally trans-regenerational,
ecopolitical investment in future global health and safety
through improving our lifeskills today,
for empathy,
like teaching the kids to extend their imaginations about the Golden Rule,
not only across species,
but also across the generations of organically healthy and happy time,
which must include bilaterally equivalent respect
between all the multiculturing possibilities
of nature's most optimally lawful integrity,
regenerativity of life as light ourselves.

There for a minute 
I thought you were confining yourself
to the land of cause-effect reason.
But, moving on,
Your matriarchal RightBrain Liberation Front,
flowing with conjoining nutritional integrity,
Dr. Jane Gordon calls this cooperative Creolization,
and such profound integrity also speaks
of Sacred Ecology as Historical Evolutionary Liberation Teleology.

Oh boy,
now we're really in trouble.
Really, honey,
you need to get out more,
go for a walk,
do some gardening,
plant trees,
and don't forget to feed and water them with some climate health.

As Creolization was trying to say,
across these evolutionary political development stories,
LeftBrain Dominance is our ecopolitical MasterYang patriarchal voice,
as RightBrain thereby becomes suppressed YinFlow of synergetic multiculturing revolutions.
This seems dynamically important
for optimizing WinWin political opportunities
for SelfLeft plus OtherRight plus Earth trilateral communication
about and of and for and within health and safety
as more regenerative than degenerative.

Don't you just mean more healthy than pathological,
more naturally and spiritually good than Yang-excessively bad?

Well, probably, but it sounds better the way I say it.

OK, if you think so.
I wonder how this is the same and different
than our proletariat Soap Opera,
where everybody eventually ends up gettin' some,
but also losing everything
that could ever possibly matter.

Try to stay tuned to one channel,
if you would be so kind.
So, we have these two primal ecopolitical hemispheres of bicamerality,
acting as bilateral polypathic co-empowerment 
through interdependence.
God remains Patriarchal LeftBrain egocentric-anthrocentric Father;
but is now hooked up with...

Honey,
please say conjoined,
not hooked up.
That sounds crude and disrespectful.

Right.
OK, God the Father post-millennially conjoins
Liberating EarthGoddess
of Matriarchal-Feminist Yin RightBrain,
ecologically balancing
ecopolitically maturing  Creole-integrity
of universal-global health and safety.

Good.
So we're done with this story then?
My Creole co-intelligence
would like to remind your secular-West reasoning
about your repressed sacred integrity co-empathic feelings,
that healthy evolutionary services
cannot be WinWin delivered to a global market
by merely following LeftBrain WinLose deductive-dominating assumptions
about our mutually cooperative health and safety.

Well, that's what I'm LeftBrain saying,
My either-or is also your both-and.

Messages for ReGenerating Time

This revolutionary message
is brought to you by
the 
TransMillennial EarthTribe CoOperative,
your international ecopolitical sponsor,
speciating Earth's New PostMillennially Silent EcoLogical Majority.

We think we begin to both comprehend,
in a B. Fullerian metaphysical sense,
and co-empathically trust,
in an economic and political science nutritional sensory sense,
and enjoy
and also find beautifully nourishing and nurturing
your/our spiritual and naturally cooperative family values,
Lake WoeBeGone Golden Ages,
Aloha Paradise Gardens,
Namaste Organic Heavens of Stars of and for GodHead YHWH Light Story ReCreation.

We are looking for political leaders of light
able to give voice to our longing for richer and deeper nutritionally healthy lives,
belonging to, rather than longing for, happy healthy wives and husbands,
regenetically robust Positive Humanitarian Psychology Global parents
of unbounding (0) sum-soul-core bicameral wisdom,
practical and nonjudgmental cooperative-trusting ecopolitical support,
and never ever victims of self-and-other condemnation.

So, dreaming of healthier kids,
with healthy dreams
capable of delivering robustly healthy grandkids,
and on...

We want and hope for nothing more or less
than a happy life prospering positive faith
that tomorrow will bring more smiles of creative,
effective,
intelligent,
positive,
socially skilled,
mentally and physically healthy,
and graceful more than clumsy,
positive more than negative,
cooperatively surrounded by warmth of empathic trust,
faith, love,
rather than competing with each other to survive
further re-enactments of premillennial WinLose
devolving paranoid nationalistic Yang LeftBrain Dominant lives.

We, both Right and Left,
enjoy good robust food,
and fragrances and sights and fertile-polypathic thoughts,
chemistries,
pheromones,
diastolic climates of health
emerging from static decomposition of competitive wealth
in and of and for Earth's dipolar spiral of Right/Left 
Yin/Yang 
ecospirit-bilateral-egonature
nurture understory 
herstory 
Earth's ReGenerate NotNot Self-Optimization EnCulturation
TransMillennial Strings of Fertile-Evolutioning WinWin BioNurturing Time.

We, the children of Light evolving good water
then healthy-fertile soil,
want reassurance we need never worry that our supply of healthy edibles
should ever become our last shared multicultural climax,
now hopelessly and pathologically lost
forever,
now including tomorrow.

We grow in comprehending impatience with corrupt competitions of WinLose Gamers, 
suffering from public veniality,
hypocrisy of nationalist politicians from dinosaur pasts
unable to deliver any hope of positive faith,
or even the basic ecopolitical wisdom of WinWin ecological evolutioning theory
of time's nature/exterior and spirit/interior bicameral revolutions.

We are exhausted with absence
of strong-nurtured hope for future healthy generations
of EarthCentric bicameral humanization
of Time's Earth-bound continuing quiet revolution,
Spiral-Spinning PolyNutritional Seasons,
interior/exterior dipolar co-arising enthymematic dialectical landscapes,
climates,
Left-Exterior with Right Elder Interior-Historic
DNA
back through RNA root systemic nutritional light/dark octave-frequency ecologies
of bicameral mindbody enculturation;
Earth's Creation Story
as told LeftBrain dominant languaged,
now impatient with past economic and political experiences
of negative,
sometimes a little paranoid,
feelings and thoughts
about corruption and private/public competing hypocrisies,
and maybe even the occasional sinister,
Old Boys Network,
conspiracy theory, or two,
and then there are the worries about liberal politicians
who know about lawyering
but not about working with,
and/or valuing,
skillful hands and legs
and bodies working to make stuff
that everybody needs
so everybody can eat
and have a place to call home,
with some friends,
and healthy air and water,
so some forests and parks and hiking space,
and mountains that still have glaciers,

And maybe a nice monitor,
and a wood stove for winter,
but we would also like to have family and neighborhood histories
for ourselves
and for our kids,
where people enjoy our back yards
and front yard boulevard gardens together,
thrive on deep ecopolitically rich ambiance,
resonant cooperativity,
laughter and loving mutual respect
and regard,
between cultures and language choices and dialects and generations
of multiculturing species.

We want to be surrounded by others with good healthy judgment,
to be used to help,
to become even more kind and thoughtful,
and certainly mutually-cooperatively respectful;
and not ever guilty of using cognitive-affective judgment,
ecopolitical discernment,
to condemn ourselves,
or anyone we know and care for,
and ever have known and cared for
within the entire line of our regenetic memory stream.

What we don't get
is why some of the TransMillennial Silent Majority...

Oh, we just got it.
OK, so, what we don't appreciate
is why some of the remaining PreMillennial Silent Majority
cannot see Hillary Clinton as someone who might share our Vision Quest
for a healthier,
more robust,
nutritionally happy life,
and we don't get how any self-respecting member of the EarthTribe Fundamental Faith in Healthy ReGenerative Economic and Politically Nurturing and Empowering Services 
to actively grow more CoOperative Economics and Political EcoSystems,
and services,
health production and nutritional reassurance,
and regenerative consumer safety and nutritional security and defense rights
at optimally sustainable ecological multicultural levels;
would vote for a political leader
who hopes for four years to have his WinLose CEO way
with his formerly rich and fertile nation 
of hypocritically religious pussy losers,
as he seems to see us now.

So why would his Win 
not make us self-selecting assets for further molestation?

We would prefer a leader who recognizes we are both predator and prey,
over one who chooses predator
so we become prey.

Miracle of Hypocrisy

I was listening to Cornell West,
who described our catastrophic tolerance of disvalues for others,
situations we would never tolerate for ourselves,
disvalues like homelessness and hunger,
but also like random violence, 
abuse and neglect,
lack of caring,
as a "conspiracy" of a dominating, oppressive, and competitive culture.

Conspiracy theories make me nervous about the theorist,
but West reassured us that he shares this concern,
yet even with all that concern taken into account,
perhaps this is a conspiracy 
in the same sense that cultural and climate evolutions
always appear, in hindsight, 
as if genius inspired, 
intelligently planned
and spontaneously networked
a magically coincidental outcome.
Positive sometimes,
and sometimes more about this mystery 
of tolerating oppressive and suppressive disvalues for others,
with apparent equanimity,
unaware of any cognitive dissonance,
without active antipathy,
or even passive empathy,
the total absence of compassion,
lack of mindfulness,
lack of consciousness;
unconsciousness.

Our own hypocrisy of self v. other values v. tolerable disvalues
are hypnotic conspiracies?  
Magical miracles?

Yet, conspiracy or not,
if self-contentment is possible
while hypocritically accepting intolerable losses and suffering,
abuse and neglect, for other:
species,
Earth-plus-atmosphere ecosystem,
nations,
cultures,
neighborhoods,
even other family members,
then we sometimes would choose words like
irrational,
rabid,
irresponsible,
lack of appropriate accountability,
lack of capacity for empathy or bonding,
lack of awareness, consciousness,
hateful,
stupid,
mental disease,
sociopathology,
ecopathology,
a hypocritical living death cuts by a thousand ego-feathered knives.

We work this magically competitive hypocrisy with each other,
on each other,
against each other,
and sometimes with each other--
we call that humor.

I do not feel possessed
when my internal ecological voice
tells me that my monocultural competitive economic environment
is over-invested in undervaluing significant dimensions
of who we naturally and cooperatively (permaculturally) are,
our care-giving and loving,
our tenderness and justice-seeking,
our tendency to side with the underdog and the understory,
our endless fascination with root systems and nutritious blossoms,
seasonal development patterns and the weather,
birdsong and surf sounds,
regular breathing and heart-beat rhythms,
blood flow nutritional capacities,
the consumption and production of nutrients
within any paradigm that might come to mind.

I get it that I live in a culture diseducating ourselves
about Darwin's "evolution is the survival of the fittest cooperative relationships"
by simply omitting the last two words;
cultural hypocrisy miraculously conspired through our sins of omission,
more salient than our grace of cooperative inclusion,
because of collective cognitive dissonance
where we need collective cognitive confluence.

Perhaps a more resonant resolution of consciousness
calls us to slow down and decompose our analysis of deviance
as sometimes negative and sometimes positive
but always some of both.

I struggle to hold a heuristic safe-space for positive deviance.
My cognitive dissonance radar 
learns to perceive dissonance itself as having two faces.
In this way
I begin to claim my positive deviant place
in our shared orthodoxy of truth and goodness,
beauty and diverse polycultural integrity,
in our "unitarianism" our synergy (B. Fuller),
our love.
If I am challenged to include you in this shared orthodoxy
(of truth and goodness and beauty and justice, etc.--the "positive values")
then my sense of ecosystemic balance 
is dissonant enough to exclude you
from your rightful place in our radically cooperative eco-space.

I tend to over-react to your negative deviance,
all that nastiness, really?!
because of our culturally collective cognitive dissonance
about your coincidental positive deviance,
OK, so you are loyal to a fault and a good cook,
and the clothes actually do smell and feel better when you do the laundry,
although it is the environmental expense that we actually disagree about,
whether it is significant to our collective future, 
or not,
or something in between,
some place that we might actually find
and consensually agree about
and then go on to those other kinds of sensuality,
but I think I have side-railed here.

Perhaps we enjoy solidarity in rooting for the underdog
in empathizing with those who appear
with a magical potential of a positive deviant outcome.
We so hope the underdog might win this round
in part
because we thereby retain a ray of hope
that we too may someday win
with all our undervalued, unsung, underdogged traits,
cooperative preferences,
nurturing instincts,
suffering and struggling with
my over-dog egocentric cultural landscapes,
my environment,
my internally encultured ego (Left-brained) consciousness.

I always cast my ego in the role of underdog,
just as my Right brain casts our permaculturally cooperative eco-consciousness
in the role of Superdog.

This internally chaotic conspiracy of self-doubt
about ego's capacity to live fully,
integrally,
creatively,
honestly,
compassionately,
with appropriate integrity of self-disclosure,
without the embarrassment of closeted hypocrisy,
dropping our considerable weapons of mutual immunity
and cognitive dissonance,
is also the boundary face of rediscovering our Right-brain's ecocenter,
our Beloved non-verbal Communication center,
comprehensively conscious,
resonant and resolved,
optimized and polypathically densely nutritious,
only through bicamerally synergetic confluence,
active peace,
love,
integrity of shared meaning and purpose
to the very core of our mutually messianic
mutually mentoring
co-redemptive
ego-and-eco balanced chi-soul.

Interior Landscaped Ego (left)
and Cooperative Exterior Landscaped EcoEarth (right-elder)
DNA/RNA fueled and functional frequencies
coincidentally confluate,
stir
decompose
to regenerate.
