A Millennium Global Community Study
The Globally Balanced Thinking Score (GBT)
"We must recycle our mental pollution. To
resolve our disorders using the same nature disconnected thinking that
produced them screams: 'Reconnect your thinking with nature now!' "
- Michael J. Cohen
Dear Friend of Earth and Sensibility,
If you would like to build responsible personal and environmental relationships
that increase your energy and reduce stress and numbness, we invite you
to join us in this study.
Most of our problem relationships don't readily improve because we are
bonded to a nature separated, destructive, way of thinking that produces
them. Our "unsolveable" personal and environmental problems seldom
improve because they are actually psychological addictions. They
must be treated as such if they are to change.
Discover a readily available and teachable psychological key to personal
and environmental wellness that you can personally validate.
Also discover if you are one of the special people who has not lost their
natural ability to better think, feel and be nurtured through thoughtful
sensory contacts with nature.
This study produces a Globally Balanced Thinking Score (GBT Score).
It numerically indicates the amount of trust you can place in a leader,
friend or yourself with respect to building balanced, peaceful, interpersonal
or environmental relationships. A press
release overview about the study is available.
If you can reason with an open mind and heart, the hour you spend in
this study will enable you to take a free, giant unifying step that you
may use, teach and distribute.
1. READ: Carefully read the Natural
Systems Thinking Process description pages 1-10. Optionally participate

as nature knows itself.
2. DO: the activity found at the end of the study.
3. ENJOY : Note how the activity feels and its value to you. Observe
if it helps broaden your thinking and relationships. IMPORTANT: Repeat
it for its additional benefits and note if your score changes.
4. ACT: Send us a description of the effects of doing this activity.
If you like, pass the activity on to others who might appreciate it.
5. GROW: We will post, anonymously, a variety of the responses we receive
at the responses page
