    Whole Life questions for our Literate Body about its relationship with our Non-Literate Other Body/Planet Earth

    ANSWERS FROM MICHAEL J COHEN, Ph.D., Founder and Director of Project NatureConnect ECHN courses and programs since 1965.

    1. What is the most accurate and trustable form of information? Why?

    Answer: Personal experience because it registers directly on one or more of our 54 natural senses.

    2. What is the greatest truth in your life that you can trust? (Clue: the answer is not God, love, honesty or nature.)

    Answer: Information and things we experience/register in the immediate moment for that is the only time our natural senses operate.

    3. What is the key factor that makes humanity different or separate from nature?

    Answer: Humanity can operate and relate using inaccurate or nature-disconnecting stories.

    4. How and why doesn't nature produce any garbage or toxic waste?

    Answer: Nature is attraction based. All things in the natural world are attractive and belong moment after moment so no garbage is produced.

    5. How can you/we be sure that Planet Earth is our Other Body?

    Answer: Our "story body" can ask our "other body" to disconnect from Earth by not breathing. If the feeling that follows attracts us to re-connect with Earth by breathing again, it signals that our other body is part of Planet Earth.

    Answer:  The senses of Reason and Consciousness becoming attached to nature inaccurate or nature-disconnecting stories

    Answer:  A fact is a story that is reasonable and when actualized it does what it says it would do.  A thought is a story or feeling, true or untrue.  A feeling is a sensation that tries to motivate or modify behavior.

    9. What produces the wanting void in our psyche, the discomfort, greed, and loneliness that fuels most human and environmental disorders?

    10. Why do we deny that we are addicted to stories, technologies and relationships that separate us from nature's balanced ways and restorative powers?

    Answer:  Disconnecting from our own life support system is so stupid that our intelligence denies that it has done this and that prevents us from experiencing the pain of our shame.

    Go to a natural area and find examples there of the two most attractive of the five answers above.

    11. If we learn to be who we are, what factor in modern education teaches us to produce today's unsolvable problems?

    20. Why do we continue to assault nature and people when it doesn't make sense and we don't like doing it or its effects?

    Answer:  We have lost webstring contact with parts of nature and people so we insensitively trespass them for fulfillments to replace this loss

    Answer:  The sense of reason when it is conscious of them.

    Go to a natural area and find examples there of the two most attractive of the five answers above.

    76. Why does Scientific Methodology omit the contribution of sensory subjectivity?

    Answer:  Sensory "subjectivity" is Nature always changing so it does not offer lasting standard conditions of pressure, temperature, motion, energy, attraction, intent, space, motivation or time that Science needs to measure it as a singularity.  This omission deprives objective Science and Technology of the means to come into balance. It is remedied by scientific methodology including 54 natural attraction sensations in natural areas as facts of life that are part of any equation or decision. Then objective science becomes, or is also, whole life science.

    "Human behavior is rooted most deeply in nature's intentions and desire. The rhythms of nature underlie all of human interaction: religious traditions, economic systems, cultural and political organization. When these human forms betray the natural psychic pulse, people and societies get sick, nature is exploited and entire species are threatened."

    -Stephen Aizenstat


    In industrial society our excessively dnature-separated lives mold us to betray the natural psychic pulse. We learn to block from our thinking over 98 percent of the wise sensory callings and fulfillments we normally share with natural systems and their eons of experience. Our subconscious hurt and frustration from the severed disconnection of these senses underlies our greatest troubles.

    -Michael J. Cohen
