Many individuals note
that the time they have spent in natural areas has energized their spirit, renewed the joy of their aliveness and cleared their mind.  It is self-evident to them that this connection has amazing purifying and restorative powers; it renewed or enchanted their thoughts and feelings in a good way.

Industrial Society takes the beneficial powers of nature for granted, or demeans, exploits or conquers them with hurtful and unbalancing results personally, socially and environmentally. 

Quality time in nature is seldom validated in scientific or spiritual circles as being moments when the dance of nature within us is connected to nature's dance around us.

In contemporary thinking, nature is usually not recognized as being "The self-perpetuating, attractive dance of aliveness since the beginning of time." However, most of us are aware of nature this way on deeper, felt-sense levels.  This is because the dance is Nature's nature and it lets us know this on its natural terms, in and around us.

The sensory way of knowing nature's dance is normally foreign to our daily lives because, in Industrial Society, on average, over 98 percent of our time, senses and thinking are literate and are indoors. They are destructively separated from, and out of tune with nature's non-literate dance of the eons.

When we measure labels, stories, courses, degrees and our socialization by their long term effects, it becomes obvious that they, along with the facts they use, are corrupt. We know this  because we can see that their outcomes are corrupt with respect to living in happy sustainable balance with each other and nature's dance around and in us. This corruption must be corrected if we are to increase our personal, social and environmental well-being.

Today, the sensory science of
Natural Attraction Ecology (NAE) empowers us to strengthen nature's ability to genuinely blend with our psyche.  Doing this helps us recycle the corrupting pollutants that have been introduced into our nature-disconnected thoughts, feelings and relationships throughout our lives.

NAE accomplishes this "unbelievable" anti-corruption feat through an Organic Psychology (OP) whose eco-art of Educating, Counseling and Healing With Nature (ECHN) enables us, backyard or backcountry, to create moments that let nature's authentic dance teach us what we need to know to come into balance with our living planet and ourselves.

NAE gives us the ability to remove the warp in our nature-disconnected glasses that prevents us from consciously registering, thinking and feeling with nature's
self-perpetuating and attractive dance of aliveness. It replaces the warp with a sensory focus that embraces nature's dance as the fountainhead of authority and education in how nature works.

The Journal of Organic Psychology and Natural Attraction Ecology article entitled "A Peak Fact: Natural Attraction is Alive Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth," describes the irrefutable veracity of NAE. It shows that like a self-inflating balloon, in non-literate ways, the natural attraction energy of the Big Bang has, through the eons, manifested itself as Planet Earth, and self-correcting, natural attraction, material and non-material relationships, sub-atomic to inter-galactic.

The Peak Fact OP/NAE article and its links scientifically affirm how, moment by moment the natural attraction process of the standard universe concretely expresses itself as nature's dance, in and around us, including as our happiness, thoughts, feelings and sensitivities. If we are part of our Universe, how could this not be so?

The article explains, for example, that, as part of the universal natural attraction process, your attraction to the words you are now reading and their story here, in this moment, is a seamless continuum of the Big Bang and its growth into greater and greater diverse attractiveness over the eons. This is true for all the naturally balanced attractions that you and I experience. The article also verifies that this is the same reason that time spent in natural areas produces the irrefutable benefits described in the opening paragraph, above.

The OP/NAE Journal is designed to help its readers address the momentous challenge of transforming the corrupt ways we learn to think and feel into constructive relationships that increase the well-being of self, society and the rest of the natural world.

Most of us learn to overlook and disbelieve that the excessive disconnection of our thoughts and feelings from the natural attraction joy and essence of nature's dance, in and around us, is the cause of our greatest problems. We therefore don't believe that reconnecting our mind, body and spirit back to the dance of authentic nature is not only possible, but that it makes a powerful contribution to doing what we must do before further deterioration of the dance critically injures us and our planet mother.


Until proven otherwise, since the beginning of time, all things, sub-atomics to the universe, including humanity's body, mind and spirit, have been unified in pure, balanced integrity by nature's natural attraction dance. This means:
  • Everything in the universe is a dancer.
  • Whenever we excessively separate our thoughts, feelings or actions from the dance, we corrupt it and ourselves. This produces problems that the dance and we can't solve.
  • Natural Attraction Ecology is the art and science for creating moments that let the dance reconnect us to itself.
  • No surprise, solutions that don't do what NAE helps us do produce additional personal, social and environmental problems.

Life in unified harmony? How do we expect to stick together with each other and the web of life if we throw away the attraction glue?  How can we produce concrete unity and solutions without the concrete?  Shouldn't there be a class action suit against those who are omitting the truth of NAE from information or support for the the well-being of person and/or planet?

Disbelievers are invited to consider the facts via two powerful online sources linked to the Journal article along with their resources. They are helpful in reversing the core of our misguided thinking crisis:

-Validate that to be part of any system, one has to be in communication with it and that to this end, we inherit from nature more than 50 natural senses.. For example, when in a natural area, our natural attraction sensations/senses of thirst, motion, trust, belonging, color, place, taste, music,  temperature, beauty, consciousness and community are all natural system connections and communications that we beneficially experience.

A major code has been cracked for increasing well-being at most levels of endeavor, and its implementation through NAE is impeded by education associations and many industries since it is an inconvenient truth.  A class action suit by folks whose well-being is denied by lack of access to NAE will make a world of difference and funding for it is available. People don't begin to think about dealing with a problem until confronted by it. NAE is a key solution to key issues and it is being suppressed.
