Bare Bones Biology 271 – Wise Choices

Letter to DV – I printed and read your series of comments on Facebook, because I can see a lot of good food for thought in there, and I even read the article by your poor naïve horror-struck author. I say naïve and horror struck because it seems to me that he (and nearly everyone on the web) somehow grew up believing life is supposed to be neat and easy and on track, just the way we want it to be, just because we are humans. This of course is what the corposystem wants us to believe and is basic to its propaganda.

Ocamora-ASC_8563RLSsHumans do not, can not, and should not control the Biosystem. However, there is NEVER nothing that we can do. What we can do now is to conform our world view to the needs of a nurturing Biosystem, rather than nurturing the corposystem lie.

I think our human problem on earth is that we are mostly doing the wrong things, because we are thinking the wrong things, because the corposystem has seized control over and is using our media and our politics to brainwash us. That is hard on those who recognize the problem. But nevertheless, just because someone else is doing nothing, or doing the wrong things, is not a good reason for me to do nothing, or to do the wrong things. That’s not the hardest question; the hardest question is how to live, surrounded by toxic propaganda, so that we do more good than harm to the welfare of the Biosystem.

As you pointed out, it is, indeed, too late for the perfect solution. The reality is that there never was a perfect solution. People are not in charge here; we never were, and the “human question” will surely be resolved long before 60 years. The solution for us will depend largely upon our choices during that time. What goes around comes around. That is not a tragedy, it is a fact of life. We caused our own tragedy by ignoring the reality. We have no responsibility to control the Biosystem, because that is not how the universe functions. Our human responsibilities are first to do as little harm as possible and second do the best we can within the reality that we find ourselves in right now, because now is the only time when we have the possibility to make wise choices.

I believe the most important thing we can do right now is to avoid believing the corposystem propaganda, to identify the reality, and to discuss among ourselves what the world looks like from outside the corposystem paradigm. Not to submit to the arrogance of the current corposystem world view, which is essentially growth for profit by domination. I refuse to be dominated, and increasingly larger numbers of people are doing the same.

What concerns me most is whether these increasing numbers of people will choose viable, sustainable alternatives to the corposystem paradigm, or if they have swallowed the corposystem myth of human omnipotence and will try to create something that satisfies a different set of human values but is equally as harmful to the Life of our Biosystem. The Biosystem does not have human values or needs, only Biosystem needs.

We do need models for our choices. Lots of them. We especially need models that demonstrate the corposystem lie — the failure of the corposystem paradigm — so that we can stop killing the Biosystem and begin to heal. Discussion and publication of negative models is not failure – it is wisdom.

Ocamora-ASC_8595RSsDo you see how the corposystem domination has prevented you recognizing the value of your work?

It does the same to me. That is our challenge. Because whatever happens, not you nor I nor the corposystem have the option to dictate outcomes for the whole world. If that is your goal, then failure is a certainty, for the same reason that failure of the corposystem is a certainty. Humans cannot control the Biosystem. We must learn to conform to its needs or we will be replaced by some other species that will do a better job.

The corposystem has taught us that we must be winners or losers. I reject that concept; I think winners is a losing paradigm. What we can do in this biological crisis is make a success of our individual opportunities by making decisions that benefit the Biosystem, based on good factual research and wise human compassion. And to discuss these decisions with other people who understand the problem and have expertise outside our own in the areas of Biosystem facts and wise compassion.

Our choice in now time is whether to contribute to the welfare of the corposystem or of the Biosystem, because we can’t do both at the same time. If your goal is to save the corposystem you are right – you have no chance — and you would do more good by just giving up. My goal is to benefit the future welfare of the Biosystem.

What we do not and cannot know is when and how the corposystem will crash, and whether or not you and I can help to develop a new system out of the ashes that can support the factual needs of the Biosystem.

So – are we to pout because we are not omnipotent and omniscient Gods? Or are we to accept that as wisdom, and do the best we can to make good choices based in hard biological facts and wise human compassion

Bare Bones Biology 270 – What If?

“If we surrender identity over time, we give up on the existence of things.”

Professor Steven Gimbel, Redefining Reality, The Great Courses.

He means a thing, any thing, maintains its “self” over time. That is his definition of a “thing.”   Any object that retains itself over time. Thus, we are all things, because we “maintain our identity,” that is we are ourselves, throughout our lives. After which we are not a thing, or at least not the same thing that we were when we were alive.

My definition of a thing is more like something that occupies space and has weight. That’s a version of the physicists’ definition of matter. Without playing physics games, “things” occupy space and if they step on a bathroom scale on earth, the needle goes up.

150818-chamadays-ASC_9055RLSsOf course, that is not the entire definition, because we know that everything (every thing) also involves energy. Energy, at our level of LIFE, is not matter. Energy is the ability to do work, and work is change. So energy is involved with change of one kind or another.

Thus it must be that, everything on earth, including the corposystem and us, is a complicated combination of thingness and energy. You are a thing that can use energy to make change. You can even decide what changes you want to make. You are a thing that uses energy as a tool. To get what you want.

Right! But are you sure?

What if it is not we who are using energy as a tool; but what if energy is using us as a tool? What if the energy processes of LIFE are more important than the forms (things) such as ourselves? What if your body is only a thing, like a refrigerator for example, that stores and maintains processes. And then, later, when energy has saved up enough different kinds of processes, it can use those processes for something more important.

Perhaps all the energy in the Biosystem is involved in the humongous Energy Project by evolving new processes and storing them in living “things.” Like us. The Energy Project has been evolving organisms in which to perpetuate those energy processes – just keep them going until the Biosystem can collect all the different processes it needs to make LIFE perfect? What if the collective energy of the Biosystem decided to evolve humans so we could understand its Biosystem Energy Project? Maybe even help bring it to fruition – to make the perfect LIFE.

If so, it was a big mistake. The reality is at the present time the corposystem has taken control of our individual and collective human power, and is using our power to attack and try to dominate the LIFE of Earth by overgrowth of our species and our economy.

If you were energy using the laws of nature to grow a perfect balance of LIFE processes on Earth – what would you do about these very imperfect humans who are trying to take control of your project and use it to make money instead of making LIFE more perfect?

Humans are not the center of the universe. That’s one thing we do know for sure. The universe can get along without us. It did for billions of years. It might be able to get along better without us.

Probably all those questions above aren’t true, because LIFE is not a question of things versus energy. It’s more a question of keeping everything in balance. Much more. Nevertheless, if I were making a personal vision statement, I believe I would take these questions seriously. After all, we do not really know the answers to any question. Not for sure. Not if it’s a question about the entire Biosystem or the entire Universe.

So, if I were making a personal vision statement, I think I would go out of my way to include the statement: “Do No Harm.” And then I would think hard about how the Biosystem Energy Project defines harm. As compared with what the corposystem has taught us to believe.

Bare Bones Biology 269 – “Emergence”

Just think how much of your brain is involved with maintaining the system that is you!! Your physiology, your instincts and your world view. And with all that, the way you do stay alive is through your emergent properties – your behaviors – that are generated by your physiology, instincts and world view. Your behaviors are your emergent properties. Your emergent properties keep you alive by interacting with your environment. You do not jump off high buildings. The function of a system is to maintain its own emergent characteristics.

The emergent property of us is female human. The emergent property of Bitsy is female Canis familiaris, and that describes the system that she must maintain by her behaviors, which is different from ours . Every kind of living system fits into a unique niche in the web of Life, according to its emergent properties.

The emergent properties of the corposystem are growth by domination for money.

The emergent property of the Biosystem is Life, which is maintained by balancing all of its millions of subsystems – all the different species, all the organs within the species, all of the cells that make up the organs within the species. All of those are different, naturally evolved systems. Even the corposystem. All of those things are evolved systems that must mesh together to maintain the Web of Life.

150814-WP-asc_9299RSs copyThe Biosystem perpetuates its emergent property (Life) by getting rid of subsystems that cause harm to Life. That is survival of the fittest; survival of the fittest is not primarily some kind of competition. The harmful subsystems are controlled by “limiting factors” that I have discussed in previous blogs. If the subsystems cannot be controlled, then they basically eliminate themselves as the natural result of their harmful emergent behaviors. It’s a feedback loop. Not a competition.

 

The Biosystem requires cooperative behaviors. The Biosystem requires that its subunits behave in ways that help to maintain Life.   Another feedback loop.

For a more social example, the corposystem rewards domination-by-power type of thinking and behavior, and punishes other types of thinking. If you spend a lot of time thinking about how you can get what you want by domination – it’s likely that you will behave appropriately toward the corposystem and you will be rewarded by the corposystem. If you won’t behave like a corposystem – most likely (in our relatively benign culture) the corposystem will find a way to not listen to your beliefs, opinions and world view.

You cannot do two mutually exclusive kinds of behavior AT THE SAME TIME. If you try to nourish the welfare of both the corposystem, that requires competition, and the Biosystem, that requires cooperation, you end up confused and quite possibly eliminated.

Here’s another way to say almost   the same thing:

           “There were two faults in the way the women’s movement began. First, women aping men in power will just lead us to be wicked and coarse. That will just    double the world’s trouble! The other mistake is to see the feminine as irrational, and therefore encourage everyone to cultivate the irrational in themselves.    Rationality is always better than irrationality. So I propose neo-feminism, which   is again holistic, unified, synthetic, and cooperative, but includes analytic and  reflective methods. It brings a feeling of wholeness. The analytic masculine period takes everything apart to see how they work; the feminine period puts them   back together again. It’s synthetic; an organic approach.”

White Fire by Malka Drucker. 2003. Page 107, quote of Dr. Beatrice Bruteau.

We cannot serve the conflicting needs of our various systems, all at the same time. We cannot serve our own best interests, and the needs of the family as a system, and the needs of the corposystem, and the needs of the Biosystem, all at the same time. To find our greatest personal power, we need to understand how systems relate to each other, and choose our behaviors with great wisdom*.

* The Dalai Lama has said that wisdom involves researching our problem until we find its root cause, and then fix the root cause.

Bare Bones Biology 268 – Systems

I capitalize Life to represent the emergent property of the Biosystem. And life is used represent individual living things.

 The green bits were edited out of the podcast because of time restraints.

 

How to say it, that’s the problem, and in five minutes or less, it’s difficult. So today I will need to strain my brain and yours, because I want to talk about systems – real natural systems. I will reference a “A Systems View of Life,” co-written by one of the speakers at a previous Bioneers, that I have not yet read, and a book entitled “Linked” that I have listened to about 5 times and benefited every time.

 

A naturally evolving/evolved system is a set of objects /nodes/things linked together in all or nearly all dimensions by processes or other manifestations of energy. The nodes and links of an  evolved system work together to generate a unitary emergent property (properties/characteristics/phenotypes) that is/are useful to the environment within which the  system evolved/evolves by natural selection.
Ocamora-ASC_8719RSs

Implications of this definition follow:

 

  1. 1. Every kind of system has unique characteristics (emergent properties) that were of value to the environment within which the system evolved. For example, you are a system that consists of subsystems, your emergent properties are Homo sapien. You are a subsystem of our current social system, the corposystem, that is a subsystem of the Biosystem. The defining emergent properties of the corposystem are growth by domination for profit. The corposystem is a subset of the Biosystem, whose defining emergent property is Life.

 

  1. Every kind of system is unique because its unique emergent properties permit the system to fill or define a new and useful niche within the environment of its origin. If there were no unique niche available that contributes to the welfare of the parent system, then there would not be that subsystem. For example, your kidneys evolved as a subsystem of you because they are necessary for your survival. Your brain also.
  1. In this modern world we need to use that brain – all of it — both the logical, critical faculties and the emotional, instinctual understandings — if we are to survive. That’s what it’s for.

For example, if we reject basic science in favor of humanities – or if we reject humanities in favor of basic science (which is NOT engineering), then we are not using all of our brain power in the effort to survive within the Biosystem.

  1. Each system interacts with its environment through its emergent characteristics.   The emergent characteristics of our corposystem as it has evolved, no longer align with or enhance the welfare of the Biosystem. This means the corposystem is in competition with the Biosystem. Competition is not the natural order of success. Competition leads to extinction of one or other of the partners. Success in the Biosystem requires balance among the parts (think again of your kidney).

Because the corposystem and the Biosystem are not aligned, and in fact are in competition, therefore they cannot both survive unless we decide to use our brain to force a change in the emergent properties (the behaviors) of the corposystem.

5 – The function of a system is to perpetuate itself. If it can’t do this, it will die. One implication of this reality is — if you have been raised within the corposystem — then you have been trained to behave in ways that benefit the corposystem, and our evolved human social system will induce or force you, in many and subtle ways, to behave in ways that promote growth by domination for money.

 For example, one of the ways the corposystem exerts this pressure is to start an argument over some issue of great importance, and then refuse to pemit us to discuss it because it is “controversial.” Especially if it is NOT controversial but factual, the corposystem is afraid of it. If we don’t discuss it, then we cannot align it with the needs of the Biosystem, and our behaviors will support the corposystem world view rather than sustain the Biosystem. It would be like the kidney competing with the rest of your body.

 Ocamora-ASC_8563RLSsTake climate change for example. There is no doubt about climate change. It’s a fact. The only doubt is what we will do about it. To defend itself from this fact (that would require the corposystem to shrink rather than grow), the corposystem first created a fake controversy. But facts always trump propaganda in the long run, and now the corposystem has been forced to take that issue seriously. So the new corposystem propaganda seems to be revolving around schemes intended to make money by promoting climate-change-related growth of businesses and charitable organizations.   The corposystem is based in growth. The growth of the corposystem destroys the Biosystem as we know it.

The Biosystem is changing in effort to maintain its viable balance, and as a result the productivity of the Biosystem is falling and will continue to fall, no matter what we do. Unless we can stop corposystem growth. That is how the Biosystem stays balanced. It is now out of balance and changing to a different climatic form. That’s how the Biosystem gets rid of problem subsystems.

My goal is to help grow a NEW human social SYSTEM to replace the corposystem. The emergent properties of the new system must be sustainability and resilience (at least). This can only be accomplished if we align our behaviors (not our emotions or our beliefs, but our behaviors) with the needs of the Biosystem.

And that is what basic science (not technology) is for. As for systems, our understanding of systems will not save us any more than our understanding of gravity or thermodynamics can save us, nor can technology within the corposystem, because technology serves the emergent characteristics of whatever system is using it.

Systems is just another fact of Life. It can help us align our behaviors – that’s what basic science (not technology) is for.

The corposystem will die in any case, because it is dedicated to overcome the Biosystem using domination and growth. The questions now are: 1) Will the corposystem damage our Biosystem to the extent humans cannot survive in it? And 2) Will we be able to step outside the corposystem world view and grow a new human social system that is sustainable?

Bare Bones Biology 267 – Meditation in Purple and Gold

Our emerging world view system, generated at the women’s leadership retreat, is composed of twenty-plus women. On last Saturday, we separated (at least physically). The eldest (I like my new identity) and the amazingly fluent youngest drove together to Angel Fire, where we picked up Bitsy, who was in deep mourning and nearly broke what was left of my heart, and then we proceeded down the Canyon to Taos and the Snow Mansion, where we delivered the youngest with some considerable confusion. By the time that adventure climaxed, the sun was lowering toward the far side of the next mountain, but enough light remained for a couple of hours driving through the beautiful “Kingdom*” of LIFE over the mountain to home.

Our little Saturn eased past the town limits just as the “add water” image started flashing on the dashboard, and when at last we reached our doorstep we found there a celebratory bottle of home-made wine.

So that was nice.

The CWL did change my personal self-image system; it will take some time to see how that falls out. But I alreOcamora-ASC_8421RLSsady knew how to write my life goal, which is: “to help grow a sustainable, resilient new human social system (world view) within a healthy Biosystem.” But last week, I only mentioned the next step on that path, which is the completion and distribution of “Book 25.” It seemed more solid; more conceivable; easier to discuss a smaller goal. Both were re-affirmed. And I got to express my deepest sorrow that is the reason for my persistent dedication. That is, watching the young of the corposystem working so very hard in their efforts to save the Kingdom of LIFE, not realizing that what they are doing — not their intention – their actions are powered by the needs of the corposystem ethic, and the corposystem ethic is the root cause of all the major problems we all are trying to fix.

Growth by domination for money. That’s the corposystem world view (emergent characteristic) in a nutshell. It’s not what we meant to do, but it’s what it is. The Biosystem world view is LIFE. More about that next week.

So, we made it home before dark, parked the Saturn, poured the wine, thank you Diego, sat down at the computer, and collided head on with the corposystem world view, in the guise of a large and well respected nonprofit organization.

I have spent the past fifteen years, after I finally realized I can’t change anyone else without doing unethical behaviors, trying to define myself (the system that is me) so as to align my own world view and behaviors with the needs of the Biosystem. As opposed to the system in which most of us today were raised and trained, which is the corposystem.

I had offered to donate about a $1500 value of photography to this nonprofit, and last March they claimed to be enthusiastic, but today — well never mind, I only have five minutes here, but from long experience I know it when I see it. Back in the day we had a name for it — MCP, today some people refer to it as male dominance behavior, but in fact I have done quite a lot of personal research and changed my own label from MCP to CCP, representing corposystem domination, because it turns out females who are raised in the same system are most often just as bad (or worse if they are highly competent), given the chance, and it is really the corposystem ethic itself that is the cause of the problem(s) that we struggle to contain.

Ocamora-ASC_8728RLSs

Growth by domination for money.

So – what can we do about this? Not much. What I did was remind myself that I should not be donating time or money or my skills to help support an organization that has values that are destroying my own commitment to LIFE, so I will stay home and work on Book 25.

And then I thought maybe – if we can understand the goals and the roadblocks – our emerging CWL system might turn out to be the difference between growth/domination /money and sustainability/resilience/compassion for LIFE.

Bare Bones Biology 252 – Ask the Right Question-repost

It is important to keep track of WHY we want this or that result from our activism. Do we simply want someone to fight with? To be better than? Do we want to be famous or well respected? Or rich? Or possibly do we really care to improve the future health of our communities and our country and the Biosystem in which we live?

War may create wealth, but not health. The health of our communities cannot be improved when we all function in the state of war that we call politics. On the other hand, we do need to protect ourselves from the politicians and their wars, and we would rather do it without generating a real revolution.

 

At the same time, our political war is not responding to we the people, except in clever ways to divert our attention away from the real problems. Thus we do not feel listened to (because we are not listened to). We are being manipulated with what are called “displacement activities.” The politicians are giving us something to fight about – the wrong questions – so we won’t bother them with the right questions.

 

Why are these the wrong questions? Because the answers to their questions cannot improve the future health of our communities and our country and the Biosystem in which we live. Rather than working to improve the health of our communities, we spend our time frantically responding to questions that make the future more unhealthy rather than more healthy.

 

But what can we do? We are in self-defense mode! Self defense against our own corposystem! We can’t just let the politics do whatever it will do, because we know what it will do. The corposystem exists to make money from growth, and so that is what it will do. Meantime, politicos need to prevent us from recognizing their game, and a major way they do this is to ask the wrong questions.

When the corposystem wants to prevent us from thinking about improving the future health of our communities and our country and the Biosystem in which we live, what does it do?   It gives us two wrong questions to argue about. For example. should the fracking wells be 50 feet or 500 feet away from the nearest residence? It’s clearly the wrong question, because the answer has little or nothing to do with the long-term over-all health of our communities. We are required to vote on two wrong questions. The right question is: Why do we need more fracking wells?

 

150506-Witting-ASC_6705RLs copyClearly, we are being victimized by our own system. So what can we do? For example, how do we protect ourselves from the fracking scam. By voting, right? Not voting won’t help.

 

I suggest we make it clear that we understand what’s going on by ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTION, or answer the right question, instead of (or in addition to) choosing between two wrong questions. When they ask us whether the fracking should be 50 feet away from residences or 500 feet away from residences, we pour into their meeting places and ask (don’t tell, ask) WHY/ REALLY WHY do we need more fracking? And publish the answers. Or the non-answers. The real answer will become apparent if you watch what they DO. For example, burning off a large portion of the gas because it’s cheaper for them than not burning. They make more profit at the expense of a healthy system. What they really want is money. For themselves. Not health.

 

So before you write to your congresspersons, talk among yourselves and figure out what really is the RIGHT question, and then, when you do write, answer whatever wrong question they have made up and then ALSO ask the right question. They probably never thought of it, and wouldn’t it be fun to educate the congresspersons about how to be good at their jobs. And if they are not good at their jobs, make that fact embarrassingly obvious without starting just one more useless fight.

As I was writing the above, this below appeared on the web:

“According to this Texas Tribune article, a revised version of HB40 is now before the full House. The updated version does not seem to be on the legislature’s web site. The article says that the bill is better, but it is still a threat to citizens’ ability to protect their environment.”

 

They aren’t even trying to be subtle anymore.  It’s become the status quo.  Two wrong questions. Every time. Pick one, either one. We lose, they win.

“When no one listens, no one tells, and when no one tells, no one learns.”

Tibetan Proverb   http://www.tricycle.com/community/valley-heroes

 

The Law of Life is how the living Earth stays balanced by balancing all of its parts.  How the Law of Life functions is deeper than any of the simple answers that are argued on the internet, but it is not a mystery and has been understood for most of my lifetime at least. If anything changes the interactions that Life of the Biosystem uses to stay alive (that’s all the processes) — then the Biosystem will change — in order to stay alive. Right now we refer to this as climate change, or some people call it evolution.

 

The balance of Life requires both the up-side and the down-side, we must honor them both in the sense of recognizing they are what maintains life, and try to help keep them in a viable balance by not unbalancing the system at either end.

 

Populations are not the only factors in this balance, but over-population is an excellent example of how it works.

 

Suffering, in today’s over-populated system is caused by producing more humans than there is enough food to feed them. This unbalances all the Earth subsystems that are related to food, and food is the energy source for Life. The deniers will tell you there is plenty. That hoary old claim was outdated nearly 40 years ago, and we exceeded the carrying capacity before the turn of the century. The carrying capacity is the amount of food we can take from the Biosystem without unbalancing the system.

 

We humans will do everything we can to save other living humans (this is a human instinct and, in humanity, we do need to honor our instincts that make us human). World Health Organization, for our population example, has made an immense contribution in this direction, probably saving more humans than any other organization in human history. This is the up-side of our current human culture.

But everything on earth has a down-side as well as an up-side, and there is a down-side to over-population that we refuse to see. The problem is that if we can’t see it, then we can’t help the suffering. So now we have too many people for the amount of food; actually well past that — scrabbling around to take food energy sources away from other species to use for ourselves makes more unbalance. And so, the up-side of WHO is the wonderful, conscientious, caring contribution it has made to human wellness. The down-side is the awful calamity of starvation and disease and war that will be, and already are, the result of trying to save every human.

 

The LIVING EARTH SYSTEM is designed to stay balanced. And if God made it that way at the Creation, whenever that was, then God will not (and cannot) change it. Because if it changed from what it is, Earth System – and we are part of the Earth System – then the whole system would die or change into something else that we are not part of.

 

The only solution for overpopulation is to stop making so many babies. We have known this for at least a couple of hundred years, and about 50 years ago we rejoiced when the technology became available – but who is there to accept the responsibility?

 

While we older folk demand that every unborn human zygote must survive, even the unwanted ones, we have handed off to the youth of today our responsibility to deal with reality by helping compassionately to reduce the world population of humans so that those born in the future can come into a better world with less suffering. I don’t mean a better world than we are living now in Texas or Canada or England. I mean a better world for most of the rest of the humans now and in the future.

 

The end of our time is most likely to come through disease. Or it could be war, or it could even be starvation. Those are the likely scenarios. All of them are unavoidable during overpopulation — and unnecessary in normal balance.

 

The living Earth (of which we are a part) was created so that it could balance itself, and we humans cannot stop it from doing so. Certainly not by working harder and harder to further unbalance it.

 

So — you young folk will get to try, and likely you will fail because we aren’t much help to you. But now is your time to STOP looking for solutions OUTSIDE the reality of the Law of Life.

 

Because we live inside — and so does the solution.
