Economic science talks about wealth and money
but ancient green ecology peace warriors
walked toward cooperative health and species nutrition
rather than poverty 
lack of sufficient mutual investment
in health-wealth trends.

Old cooperative economic leaders
and followers
measuring comparative values together
counted in nutritional value
accumulated by Yang dominating...Read More

Premium Member Seen But Not Heard
I remain stuck
and struck
by children to be seen behaving
but preferably not heard
regardless of behavior,

But especially not heard criticizing their WiseElders
or, probably worse, mimicking them;
although some parents,
especially grandparents,
do see mimicry as graceful flattery
and occasionally a disgraceful lesson--
our children hope to see...Read More

Let's do a bit of sacramental gaming.

Oh no, Dear!
That smells and sounds coldly inappropriate.
What would your great-grandmother say?

OK, well...
how about a mutually refining discussion
about theological system development?

That might be alright,
although heavy.
But, don't you mean the development of systematic theology?

That too,...Read More

I believe it was Buckminster Fuller
who first posited
a prime appositional,
like Yang and Yin,
but his was:
Energy is to physical nature
as Information is to metaphysically languaged systems.

And,
if we were to add the Yin and Yang
of this positivist-regenerative observation,
we could further nuance regenerate...Read More

There is a world of difference
between schism and jism,
but they both end up the same.

Just as patriarchal Roman Catholicism
overpowers living and breathing Christianity,
so too does Capitalism
overpower cooperative capital co-investment,
so too does autocratic rationalism
overpower syncretic enculturing con-scientivity,
so too does stale exegetical...Read More

Paul Tillich wrote

Premium Member Patriotic for Planet Earth
What is patriotism?

Pride of and for national, and maybe cultural, superiority.

What is nationalism?

Usually positive values,
but I guess nationalism could also include negative evaluations,
for national autonomous freedom and power to do good.

What is good?

Not evil

It is interesting to consider a national economy,
and a personal economy,
as iconic of our ionic political empowerment,
and competitively anti-ionic disempowerment;
so economic marginalization
becomes an icon for political victimization
and political opportunity for future WinWin healing.

This way of seeing an iconic/ionic primal relationship

Premium Member The Christian-Taoist Continues Standing
I was baptized as a Christian,
once or twice.
It's not so much that the baptism ritual malfunctioned
in some series of unfortunate events;
It's more like Taoism as my primary ecopolitical health system,

or metaphysic,
or whatever kind of evolutionary,

Eugenics is about monoculturing supremacist delusions

Eumemics is about multiculturing nutritional inclusions

Economies are positive when consuming and producing balanced nutrition,
and are depressed when consuming and producing too much 
by way of dissonant toxic loss and suffering,
un-ecological hubris,
climate pathologies suboptimizing WinWin potentialities

sometimes labeled as wealth,
is an artifact,

A few years back,

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

If I became a paranoid schizophrenic
