-- Poet-Songwriter-Philosopher of Humanity, L.S. Heatherly
Wikipedia: "Electoral fraud, election manipulation, OR vote rigging is the illegal
INTERFERENCE with the process of an election."

A. FBI's Comey knew:
1. that making PUBLIC, on 10/28/16, the discovery of new Clinton emails  
Would MANIPULATE the election OUTCOME significantly-- by DECREASING
the votes for Clinton and INCREASING the votes for Trump..
2. He and his team KNEW that the new emails would PROBABLY add
nothing NEW to his investigation. He KNEW significant numbers of voters
would feel "enough is enough"; and conclude 'CLINTON is probably guilty". And,
consequently, vote against Her and FOR Trump. 40 million early votes cast 10/29 to 11/6/16.
B. Comey, therein, violated election law by "INTERFERING in the
process of an election and distributing MISLEADING info." (Wikipedia on Election Law)  
It became more clear later, that he knowingly did so.
C.. Comey engaged in "the distribution of MISLEADING information
in order to affect the outcome of an election." (Wiki on Election Law)
Comey, also violated the Hatch Act, forbidding High Gov Officials from helping 
a candidate win.

D. Wiki: "Illegal interference with the process of an election" is sometimes
....."Acts which are technically legal but are considered..."OUTSIDE
the spirit of electoral laws, OR in violation of the principles of democracy."
E. Comey's UNFAIRLY TIMED public release of the new emails surely 
meets all criteria for illegality. His 10/28/16 action was ILLEGAL interference 
and a manipulation of the outcome of an election.

F. The SCENARIO of Comey's iIlegal interference with the process of
the 2016 Presidential election:

An ABC/Washington Post tracking poll, released on Nov 1, showed 
Trump had cut Clinton's 4 point lead in poll averages down 5 points, 
with Trump ahead by 1 point! The EVEN playing field -- racetrack to 
the White House-- had been made UNEVEN, it had been rigged!
This gain in voter support by Trump occurred DURING the 3 days 
immediately following the wide and full news coverage of Comey's 
letter to Congress (10/28)that the FBI was looking at new, potentially
criminal, new Clinton emails. The emails, later, revealed nothing new.

This "gave Trump a much needed boost." (-The New Yorker).By
Nov 6, the Clinton campaign had recovered the approximate 5 points
lost, during 10/28 to 11/1 , giving her, a 4 point lead in poll averages.

WHAT IF the 2 people at the FBI over Comey -- who told him 
NOT to go public so close to the election -- had stopped him!
They had the authority needed to prevent his going public!

WHAT IF the right and the fair had won out in that clash!
Comey's personal ego and need for power won out! Now, Lady
Liberty's torch could, very likely, be dimmed forever!

With the absence of that announcement of new emails, which
resulted in Clinton's loss of 5 points: it is logical that the Clinton
REGAIN of 5 points would have been a Clinton ADDITIONAL 
4 to 5 points: equaling a 8 to 10 point lead at the start of Nov 7! 
Trump would have had no rigged, falsely-based momentum!

WHAT IF more in the news media had given this weight! 
What IF the media had reminded the voters that the polls would 
show Hilary FAR ahead in the remaining days of the campaign, 
IF the UNFAIRLY timed letter about the new emails had not 
UNFAIRLY refueled the idea that Hilary would be charged and 
prosecuted by the FBI!

By Nov 6, just 30 hours before voting began, Comey announced 
that the new emails found nothing new against Clinton! This was
reported by news media during the last 30 hrs before the voting began.

UNFAIRLY, this news was given in merely scattered one sentence 
statements; as opposed to the full and sensational coverage of these 
new emails (for days) when they were made public. But, the Trump
campaign heard and was, reportedly energized by them.

The damage had been done, Millions of minds had been made up --
undecided, delayed verdicts had been finally assigned by about 5 % 
of voters to Hilary on the issue: that she likely, or possibly was guilty.

Many early votes had been cast and influenced by this almost endlessly
reappearing issue being a substantial factor during the few days
following the 10/28 Comey letter, as well as some in remaining hours..

The RACE for the Presidency was run-- during the last 10 days of 
the race-- on an UNEVEN racetrack! The LANE that Clinton ran
her campaign in, that lane suddenly encountered a muddy stretch of 
track during those 5 days. Her stride was slowed down; thereby,  
allowing Trump (free of a RIGGED, muddied running stretch) to 
catch her and pass her. Trump had a 1 point lead!

How did the mud get there? Why was it allowed to be made muddy? 
Where was the entity that oversees Presidential elections to assure 
that they are conducted fairly, and on a level, non-rigged, equally fair, 
campaign-running racetrack to the White House!

Why has this rigging of an election, this rigging of the American 
people's rights, dignity and future, not yet been challenged in court!

Will our children's and grandchildren's futures really be sacrificed 
on the alter of a con man's arrogance, coldness greed and bigotry!

A sacrifice made on the alter of the super rich-- that hold's
the upper 1/10th of 1 percent to be "5000 times more worthy"
(--Billionaire, Nick Hanauer says "nuts" to that idea) 
than the poor and middle class's men, women and children!

UPDATE 12/9/16
H. "A shocking CIA assessment has concluded that Russia
[not just Comey] interfered with the US Presidential election expressly
to help Donald Trump. That's the consensus view. Russia MANIPULATED
the election to that end." -- Washington Post
I. "Russia mounted a covert operation to help Trump." -- NBC
This included leaks about Clinton's emails.

"The peaceful and orderly transfer of power is a US hallmark; BUT, (1) A High US Official, FBI's Comey, interferred to affect the election outcome!


And (2) Russia interfered to, successfully, help Trump Win!

RUSSIA and COMEY, therein, rigged the outcome of a US Presidential Election! 
What is PEACEFUL about these 2 attacks and violations of a US Presidential Election?
These 2 ELECTION VIOLATIONS, easily override and SHOULD DELAY the usual 
transfer of power! AMAZINGLY, Obama, House, Senate and the Supreme Court all 
remained silent. 

A REVOTE was needed 6, 8, or 10 weeks after the first! And the inauguration postponed!
Programmed for over 200 yrs; to cycle in a presidential change, this programming won the 
Day! And IN THIS automated march of Administrative power, we have lost much of the 
USA's founding spirit, democracy and purpose!"
-- L.S. Heatherly -- 12/15/16 and 12/23/16

The Children's Peace Plan

Ask the children for Peace Plans!
No God has ever come!

Food, clothing, shelter.   For these,Love stands! 
Not life forever in hereafter to come!

Silence guns! Testosterone's helter skelter!
Watch joyful child-eyes light up the land!

Set Free family love, 
Root of social-love to rise above!

Community embraces real nest, childhood joy!
Here, life and soul find their ploy!

Ask not that empire rules 
Holding riches stolen! 

By hoax of false divine; 
Stop ceremony devised by fools.

Ask not generals and soldiers!
Here, death and ego run for fun!

Where have all the flowers gone!
To grave yards youth-full, every one!

Yea, children are the future
Of Love and community-nurture!

Chose no more life of greed and hate;
Chose Earth-child -- all, hence, elevates.

Bond human hearts: soul of matter!
Not a never seen hereafter!

Paul McCartney - John Lennon: Endless Legacy?


                                                 by  L.S. Heatherly

This duo, ranks at or near the top of great songwriting duos e.g. Rodgers and Hammerstein,

In a 2015 Esquire  interview, McCartney covered many topics. Here are the gists of three themes.

On Lennon and McCartney vs. McCartney and Lennon. Their manager, Epstein, and Lennon got to a meeting of the three early; and when McCartney arrived, was told the two had decided that Lennon and McCartney was good. McCartney said OK; but "McCartney and
Lennon is good too" McCartney said thinking he had Yoko on his side (that the order should depend on the song); when she called to change her view-- that Lennon and McCartney was the right credit!

His efforts to get his name first on songs he alone wrote, like Hey Jude, Yesterday, Let It Be, were met with considerable, public disapproval. Lennon had become a Martyr, Many fans complained e.g., "What a big head! Why does he want [on some songs] his name in front of John's?".

McCartney: "But is was nothing to do with big head, It's just to do with identifying who wrote
what. John did a real good Playboy interview [saying] "This is mine, this is Paul's." ..He said it.
"I thought it perfectly reasonable...and still do today. But I don't think it's achievable for some

ESQ: " 'Yesterday,' 'Hey Jude,' 'Let it Be.' Is it possible to conceive of you[r] writing anything
of that impact again. Perhaps no one could now."

McCartney: " ...we don't live in that culture anymore, that's true....we wrote good stuff... our
own...didn't have writers...happen again?...don't know...wish people well, but I have a feeling
it couldn't [happen again]."

ESQ: "...cosmically: how in the hell did you four [Beatles] manage to bump into each other?"
McCartney: "Cosmic, man. It is! Dead cosmic. I know that."

McCartney can't imagine retirement. Asked if he felt he still had something to prove?...
"But, then, I still enjoy writing. I still enjoy singing.....and maybe I could write something that's
just more relevant, or new!...

*           *          *          *

What a Coincidence (not really)! Over the last six years, The Author of this blog has TOTALLY rewritten -- transmuted and transformed -- the lyrics in 28 classic hit songs, including FOUR of McCartney/Lennon's top songs and one of George Harrison's!

This is called transforming a song to where it  meets all legal requirements for

This re-creation keeps and credits the McCartney/Lennon music (or Harrison) to them through
lyrics meeting "Fair Use by means of achieving transformativeness; and thereby, being

The owner(s) of the music, (and arrangement of music) still  receive their profits from these transformative, fair use, songs, when and if, they are released in the future!

Transformative-Fair Use; this entails different and unique CONTENT, MEANING, MESSAGE, PURPOSE and AUDIENCE, as well as, new, unique contribution to human well-being/the arts and social discourse/commentary!

To date, the lyrics of 28 classic,  hit songs have been totally rewritten to achieve "transformativeness "fair use via transformativeness!" They have been sang, recorded and produced in Heatherly's
bare bones home studio! And the (1) lyrics, (2) sound recording, (3) performance and (4). production rights, all are Registered in the US Copyright Office by Yours Truly..

The FIVE Beatle's songs, thusly transmuted thoroughly are:
Hey Jude    Let It Be   Yesterday   Imagine   Something    (Titles themselves cannot be Copyrighted.). Anyone can title their new song Yesterday, or Let It Be,  for example.

McCartney, INDEED, has first opportunity to purchase non-musical rights to the new transformative fair use derivatives of these songs. This includes First Release Rights.
All artists, who would, thereafter, cover his first release of the transmuted songs,
would pay him a cover royalty for his music..

This will be, of course, after McCartney buys back many of the Beatles top, hit songs, which
were sold under financial stress. He has benefited by the passage of time. Around 2017-18 (if memory serves this blogger) time opens this door to him. He has stated his recover ownership of these song rights! [2018 Update: McCartney has reacquired ownership of his previously sold songs.]

( For clarification on "fair use," in the above context, Google this  "fair use does not require permission" You will get about 24 results affirming this statement.
And about 17k  results with a "fair use" "transformative purpose" "no permission" search.

The Child Within -- Remembered

     By  L.S. Heatherly

We should never forget, my friends,
How our Common Soul gathered in,
Deep breaths of time, back when!

Still now, child within, remembers--
How Adult, still, wishfully creeps:
To re-catch sweetest love, through sleeps!
Glow of  revelation's embers!
And long-lost joys in childhood's leaps!

Don't forget spells within our reach,
That gathering wild berries teach!
Catching fish, storing food, once, reaped
Panting breath of ol' hide and seek!

Being, within child, remembers
The glowing of spirit, its shine!
From intimate concourse and consorting
With passages of time!

Being, within child, remembers
Spirit-time, before machine-time!
When all systems were go
For Earth-place, we could know,
As our rhythm and rhyme!

Being, within child, remembers
A time, before Ego's thrusts for power,
Released the tragic flood --
Automated bodies over concrete;

Before urban time and commercial feat
Crowded out rituals of mealtime!
And many of Life's sparks
That our Spirit was meant to greet!

Being, within child,  remembers
A time -- before speech suffered culture's breach!
When pure words from a primal spring,
Flowed true in Earthly, Human banks of time!

Being, within child,  remembers
Spiritual intercourse-- all living things
Within an Earthly Soul,
Sprouting  family-saplings,
Catching  ancient breeze-songs --

Whispering, It takes a village. --
An ancient creed, now, gone;
As arrogant storms, still,
Flash-flood along!

--Edited from a poem published in Ch. XI of
The Last Human Spring (2002) E book (2011)

L.S. HEATHERLY - Official Biography



A.  Human Revelation

L.S. Heatherly (essayist, poet, songwriter, philosopher) recounts having a 30-45 minute, mesmerizing, trans-like "human revelation" in early March of 1977. The epiphany, was recounted as occurring though a revealed, key idea, an idea previously missing in his own, and, seemingly, all other Western, "civilized" philosophies and thought systems. Reportedly, this core idea released inundating streams of thought, completing all his life's previous flows of thought and conceptual reservoirs. All his conceptual understandings became united; as a natural and organismic vast, flowing conceptual watershed across our Earthly humanity, thought, values, and consciousness itself.

Here was a unity of diverse, philosophical-psychological-sociocultural-ecological-metaphysical-epistemological-human developmental-human evolutionary propositions, theories and/or theses, constituting "the West's sixth, complete system of philosophy," and much more ( See the Preface to The Last Human Spring). Heatherly holds this system to be a unprecedented unity of philosophy and science: a unified field of theory-thesis, a unified vision of our 200,000 year-old Homo sapien's human nature, being, identity, spirit, reality, social, ecological and cultural condition. A vision, an account, of our original, ecologically legitimate, humanity: the humanity authentically fitting and belonging to us. Heatherly, un-waveringly, affirmed his vision to be a bright, unprecedented, deep enlightenment: of Earth's natural, human condition, past and present, as well as, the past and present violations and adulterations by civilization of our Earth's evolved, natural humanity.

Following this deep, human revelation, Heatherly, alternately pacing his room and sitting, at times with tears of joy, was haunted by one question, why him? Why, he asked, was this conceptual treasure, bearing seemingly unbearable responsibility and burden, revealed to him? The surprisingly simple answer lay in the question itself, and came to him the next morning: only he had blazed his particular, original, rebellious pathway, which had become an excavation, deep into the roots of our ecological-ontological-psychological-phenomenological-epistemological sociocultural origins; into our development, well-being, and sustainability-- into humanity's organismicity sprouting out of Earth-life itself, into a natural humanity, revealing the what, how and why of the human condition, prehistoric, historic and contemporary.

Other original rebels, scant in number, seeking our deeper, original unadulterated humanity, had likely blazed their own trails. Mainstream thinkers, on the other hand, were guided and confined by one or more particular fields, movements, and schools; such conformists were, then later, forced to respond to the Modern intellectual shortfall, with eclectic and multidisciplinary, reconstructive surgery on the Modern disintegration of psyche, education, consciousness, family, community, socioculture and human lifeway. Heatherly holds "Specialization has held steady to its tunneled visions, a malady widely treated, but left inaccurately diagnosed and uncured. Our Age of specialized education, careers, and scientific enterprise have simply removed the natural prerequisites for natural, whole, human understanding, consciousness, intelligence, socioculture, as well as for natural Earth's ecosphere, cradling, creating and sustaining Earth's natural humanity."

Learning, years later, of Jean Jacques Rousseau's famous moment of "illumination," Heatherly regards his and Rousseau's deep enlightenments as largely similar in nature, but, sees his as deeper and more expansive in makeup. Ten years after this revelatory experience, after having gathered sufficient strength of mind, heart and life-wholesomeness; this philosophy, these "understandings," subsequently took over his journal of miscellaneous thoughts; therein, setting him down, on August 1, 1987, to the often interrupted presentation of that system in manuscript form, completed in early 1999 (See Reviews below).


L.S. Heatherly was born a seventh-generation Appalachian in the Stoney Creek area of Tennessee [(GGGGreat grandson of Ewings Heatherly, an Original Land Grantee, 3/19/1775 (originally leased from the indigenous tribes in 1772 as much of east Tennessee and most of Kentucky)]. LS arrived in Phoenix as a young child with parents, an older brother and a much older, half sister. He was nominated for class President in the 5th, 7th and 8th grades, declining always in favor of VP, and declining later to take college courses in high school. LS remembers sharply the entrance of TV into his home at age 7. A few days later, it struck him vividly and deeply: how evening, family interaction had ended, and nearly all attention to programmed, vicarious, distant, filmed phenomena had begun. Later, he banned TV (and home telephone) from his life twice for five years: from age 18 to 23, and age 35 to 40.

Drive-by sightings of a large kindergarten, evoked such tearful objections from LS, his parents allowed him to skip it in favor of his village-like neighborhood. They had to coax him into the first elementary grade with a nickel for an after-school visit to the Mom and Pop Ice Cream Shop. LS, nonetheless, got straight As. At home, maintaining an intimate, childhood relationship with Living Nature, he helped tend the fruit trees, roses, grapevine and other plants in the family yards, irrigated via a redevelopment and extension of prehistoric Hohokam (c. 400 to 1400 A.D.) irrigation canals. At age 11, LS started his own flower and vegetable beds. He watched approaching monsoon storms, at times, climbing a backyard tree, hugging a branch, to be tossed around as part of tree, storm, wind-gust and sky-- a late childhood tree-hugger. Through force of unfettered instinct Heatherly was proposing humanity, innately, a part of Earth's living nature.

During high school, he kept an hour each day on his back porch, as day ended and night began, for contemplation and union, in consciousness and spirit, with Earth-life's field of being. LS was a porch whistler of many songs, and a responder to bird song. Upon intellectual awakening with puberty, he favored the writings of Thoreau, Emerson, Frost and the Romantic poets, writing some poetry of his own, as well. At age 16, LS responded fully to his abandoned, half-nephew's separation-rage lasting several days, successfully forming the crucial child-parent bonding, and becoming his surrogate parent, providing physical, speech, play, as well as all therapies inherent in parental love. Heatherly, thereby, lead the way for his parents to accept the helpless, Cerebral Palsied, 3 year-old into the family. Heatherly had saved a helpless child from a short institutional life; and grown another tap root into the sources and essences of natural humanity. An infant's tragedy of palsied development became Heatherly's early path into parenthood: an essential developmental experience, otherwise to be denied him through his unique destiny. Later, he wrote, "Whom heeds the call of free humanity's life and lore is rich; whom deeds the will to imprisoned, type-set words is poor." (See 9/3/10 entry in Heatherly's Literary Blog)


In grade school, Heatherly pulled off his shoes in favor of barefooted, free and agile play (and sports) on the playground. Some of his friends followed suit. Before starting school, he went barefooted, if at all bearable, (grass, dirt, sidewalks, indoors) before he started school. He was the Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer type before he heard of Twain's fictional, childhood characters. With an ear more keen on finding comedy, lead-in material from teachers than finding lessons, he reigned as the class-schoolyard wit and humorist from 7th thru 12th grades. He was allowed out of 7th grade music class for injecting jest into lyrics; sent to, instead, spend that hour practicing his running and jumping skills; won numerous ribbons at multi-school meets, breaking his school's high jump record (barefooted) for his weight class. As an All Star Little League Player (wearing mandated shoes), he got the only hit for his losing team in the Phoenix Championship play-off game.

From the 4th grade thru 8th, he went an hour early to school, huddled in grass and spontaneous talk with friends, and afterwards, playing extemporaneous ball games on the schoolyard's field of dreams. In the fourth and seventh grades, he sometimes stealthily climbed out the open window into the world of the hedge-birds-Earth-sunlight and Springtime. So respected by the 8th grade, Heatherly achieved some unthinkables. Twice, he led symbolic, successful, momentary rebellions against a bit rough, 8th grade teacher; while maintaining the teacher's respect owing to Heatherly's wit, humor and general, exemplary, class and schoolyard leadership.

Once, while on the schoolyard, a friend came with word of a pending fight between Eddie, a top 8th grade fist-fighter, and Albert, a likable, new boy in another 8th grade class, to whom LS had been ceremoniously introduced days earlier. Arriving on the adjoining, side street, LS, small in physical stature but large in presence and earned respect, saw each boy surrounded by a dozen supporters, and proceeded to approach Albert, asking "What happened? Why are you guys fighting?" Smiling and glad to see LS popping the question, Albert replied, "I really don't know why we are fighting." A walk over to Eddie's camp, Heatherly's question, again, produced a smile and "I really don't know why we are fighting." With good cheer, LS announced to both camps: "Hey, man, let's wait 'till you guys have a reason to fight! Come on!" Walking between both boys, now exchanging words of respect and friendship, midst smiles of relief and good cheer, LS lead the throng of classmates (some disappointed but resigned to boyhood, schoolyard leadership in action), back onto a seemingly brighter field of dreams.

As early as age 12, he experienced quickenings of a growing awareness, and cultivation of, the original and maverick nature of his consciousness, thought, and lifeworld view of human nature and the human condition. Summer vacations to his many relatives in Tennessee -- some still retaining large gardens, milk-cows, chickens, home food-canning, spring-water, wells and outhouses -- contributed to a naturalistic view of human self, life and world. Smacking of the Thoreauean he discovered at 15, nothing was to be spared from a systemic, fundamental, spiritual-ontological-ecological evaluation. A self-evident mission was taking formation: the blazing of an original path toward some conceptual breakthrough, small or large, aphoristic or bookish in nature. Near the end of high school, the latter scenario becoming his largely, self-evident future.

Commencing with his HS senior-year, Heatherly stopped using the first person in writings toward achieving a more universal, self-less, non-egoistic understanding of humanity. This marked a formal culmination of an early and long-running identification with all humanity, affirming it as being innately good, rather than so naturally so flawed as to require civilization's or religion's intervention. To most science and religions, it has been clearly held that humankind within civilization is afflicted; but, as suspicioned by Heatherly, were civilization and religion truly solutions or, instead, parts of the problem?

His senior-year, English teacher (fresh from college teaching), graded his first theme paper an A+, "rare" by her accounts. With permission from LS, she read it to the class; and subsequently, demanded nothing less than grade A performance from Heatherly. Her demand was refused verbally, 3 days later, in class (via a concise, nonchalant, lecture from LS) to teacher and later in the Principal's office, on the grounds that writing should not be for writing itself, nor occur upon demand, but, instead should flow from authentic, inspirational light revealing vital or important insights into the nature of the human condition. LS had begun to declare that regimented writing, as well as regimatated education was antithetical to true, natural learning and human development. She transferred LS out; and the Principal kindly advised Heatherly that the school board would back the teacher. This was more than enough (enough being continuously present) of formal education for one young philosopher; he graduated with honors, his contrary views on the nature of good and real education, notwithstanding.


Heatherly marked his 21st birthday by moving from the family home place into a rented, small, mobile home resting on 3 acres of citrus and horse pasture. One evening, midst radio music, reading and drinking, he experienced a deep, long scream, expelling suppressed, excruciating, spiritual-ontological pain. Upon reading, a few years later, of Janov's "Primal Scream;" LS identified his scream, likely, as fitting the term. A few months after turning 21, LS drove nonstop (too liberated, by quest itself, to sleep) to Dallas TX. Here, he could "cut a clean swath" (See Thoreau's Walden), have greater autonomy, put his emergent philosophy of life to a fresh, urban test, as well as more keenly direct the ongoing growth of the nature of his human spirit, mind and soul. For food, clothing, shelter, books and an old car, LS worked at (a) a "Big Boy" restaurant, where he innovated a new, faster way to clear tables, setting a sales volume record for any of the 4 Big Boys in Dallas, then declined a shift manager proposal; (b) as an evening manager of a convenience market, where he increased sales some 70% and was offered and declined a store to manage; and (c) at a large Country Day School, as custodian over grounds, 9 classrooms, 2 offices, lobby and auditorium, where, despite having a gift with children, he declined to fill-in for late or absent teachers. He lived in Dallas alone for five years, four of which were in a rustic, garage apartment.

For growth of his life, mind, and spiritual-ontological growth, LS pondered past and present humanity, and read 6 to 12 hours per day-- the books of heart, mind and soul's selection, a scant few from college book stores, most from book mail order catalogs. Heatherly's early view of books has held through the years: "The purpose of reading is to find books that are almost impossible to read; that evoke with each paragraph so much thinking on the part of the reader, that the reader's own thoughts override and outflank the written messages of the book." "The great book says: find in me, your messages to humanity." ( See Heatherly's 9/4/10 blog entry, "Great Literature")


Back home in Phoenix, Heatherly frequented the nearby Sonoran Desert for communings, experiencing 3 (of perhaps 6 to 7) lifetime, mostly solitary 'rebirthings' or regeneratings "re-naturalizations" (Heatherly's term)-- of consciousness, mind and spirit. Heatherly, later, became active monthly in local, Phoenix poetry (Treasurer of GPS and Historian of ASPS) from 1999 to 2006, spearheading two state Spring Poetry Festivals, and served once as chairperson of the ASPS's, officer nominating committee. He mustered enough support to remove a PHDed officer who had been trashing some members, its quarterly, contest chapbook, and the poetry society itself. LS read three of his poems before an audience of some 2000 at the Glendale Jazz Festival in 2001; as well as readings at Poetry in the Park, Willow House, and the state society's Spring and Fall gatherings.

A few years after his 1977 "human revelation," Heatherly partially overcame his shy, reserved nature regarding women(growing up with no sister), and, at last, came to enjoy the fulfillments girlfriends can manifest within one's life. Never encountering a compatible life-partner, however; he remained married solely to his mission for humanity's re-naturalized and re-nurturalized development, well-being, and sustainability.

His major, "truly ground-breaking" work, The Last Human Spring ( See below) was published in 2002 and again in 2009, containing, with bibliographical references and index, 446 pages: ten chapters of prose, along with Ch XI, consisting of 47 poems. He published an Author's website to share a small portion of his ongoing writings in 2003 and beyond. He began a blog of his own latest poetry, aphorisms and short essays in September of 2009.( See below for both). From late 2010 to the present, LS joyfully added ecological, philosophical song lyrics to his repetoire, replete with demos, aimed at eventually spreading his teachings to a larger, wider audience of global humankind.


Heatherly holds that his poetry (and prose) represents something of a new genre: deep and thick with advocacy, ideas, and explosively seminal with multidisciplinary theses, clearly producing an unprecedented literary synthesis. Here, poetry, attains to a philosophy of Humanity within Earth-life, generating wide and deep thrusts into many branches of philosophy, into psychology, and many fields of human and social science; all manifested through his thorough-going system of philosophy, termed, human authenticism. He affirms his philosophy as especially rich with anthropological, psychological, ecological(environmental), sociological, epistemological, ontological, spiritual, moral, cultural, historical, and human evolutionary philosophy. His poetry is about half free verse and half nonfree; a few could very well be slammed.

Published Works

His major work, The Last Human Spring, presents what Heatherly affirms as the sixth, complete system of Western philosophical thought, teachings and commentary. He holds the book to be an unprecedented event in all of history's 5000 years of alphabet-literature, stemming from the following affirmed attributes: (a) the West's sixth, complete system of philosophical, psychological, sociological, phenomenological, sociocultural, ecological thought, and enlightenment (b), presented in one volume (c), to both laymen and professionals in psychology, human sciences, social sciences, and philosophy (d), outflanking the iconic ideas of Freud, Jung, Darwin, et. al. (e), laying the foundations for the the merging of philosophy and science (f), achieving, through deep, revelatory-breakthroughs, the basis for the reconstitution and regeneration of civilization's thought, consciousness, literature, education, meaning, purpose and reality (g), completing Darwin's inadequate account of natural selection, as it applies to social primates and particularly to humans (h), presenting the astounding discovery of our "human nurturome," the missing partner to our human genome, and, moreover, of far greater importance than our genome in our struggles to decrease human sufferings and inequities, as well as, to systemically meet the accelerating threats to civilization itself, including the global ecocrisis (i), redefining both "nature" and "nurture", resolving the nature-nurture debate (j), presenting a revolutionary, diagnosis of and systemic treatment for humanity's oppressions, inequities, ecocrisis, global warming, climate change (and as forecast by a growing, small minority, the coming collapse of civilization); therein, reconstituting and redefining (k),the Environmental Movement (l), the Sustainability Movement and (m), presenting all this, and more, in both prose and poetry.

Give Life as Soul; All One, Thus, Be

              By  L. S. Heatherly


Cast to lands, though, far from thee!
Cast one breath; then all are free!

Into the heart evolved for thee! 
Common soul of humanity!
Into Earth-life emerged with thee! 

Cast soul into human cradle
Eight million strong-- Earth-life labeled!

Cast not into dead Lifelessness!
Be found! With soul, alive with bliss!

Cast alms to poor? Feigned grace we see!
Cast soul to soul: soul-alms set free!

Give life and soul! All one, thus, be!
Sow soul as alms; reap humanity!

Wealth is power, and rules through this:
Parent and child shall have less bliss!

What doth happen; it's plain to see
When, not oft', mind's and heart's refrain 
Meet-up, on Life's seldom used, sweet lane!

Oh, suddenly, our soul slips in!
Mind and heart's-- friend of old,
And bearer of Life's only gold!

Our world transforms, so pure and clean!
Our hearts hold seeds for Child's soul-light,
Wells-up and out-- our Human Spring!

Wakes, now, heart's lone, cold night!
When babe and mother-eyes meet free;
And child finds home on father's knee.

That parent and child shall have less bliss:
All wealthy men take vows to this!

Cast soul as alms; and free thus be!
Give life as soul; all one, thus, be!

We Shall Know the Truth

          By L. S. Heatherly

We shall know the truth--
That truth is known far less
In pursuit of happiness!

Far more in paths through maze
That lead us to our children's joys.
No more to gun's false fate deploys!

Away from greed, wealth and power;
Into childhood's endless showers
Of growth upon all family ways.

This, down through ancient, human hours;
This human spring comes, still, again.

As long as this may, still, remain
Our true, highest, human power.
