As an alt-epistemologist, I keep emphasizing the yin/yang character of “truth,” that in this 3D world, Truth is binary, dual.
Neils Bohr: “The opposite of one great truth is another great truth.”
Walt Whitman: “Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes.”
This acceptance and integration of what others would call (and condemn as) “contradiction,” and what we recognize as paradox, plays out in practice here in Green Acres Permaculture Village, where we aim to value, equally, both individualism and community, both darkness and light, both inside and outside, up and down, left and right, conscious and unconscious, good and bad, in each of us, and in the whole, paying close attention to their continuously shifting balance. Does that mean we’re “Chinese”? No. It means we’re continuously expanding our understanding and embrace of BEING and BECOMING.
