Abstract: Let $ M(X,G)$ be the set of $ G$-invariant means on $ {L^\infty }(X,\mathcal{B},P)$, where $ G$ is a countable group acting ergodically as measure preserving transformations on a nonatomic probability space $ (X,\mathcal{B},P)$. We show that if there exists $ \mu \in M(X,G),\mu \ne P$, then $ M(X,G)$ contains an isometric copy of $ \beta N\backslash N$, where $ \beta N\backslash N$ is considered as a subset of $ {({l^\infty })^*}$. This provides an answer to a question raised by J. Rosenblatt in 1981.
