DR WILHELM REICH
In the 1930’s and 1940’s, Dr. Wilhelm Reich was able to detect and measure the existence of etheric energy (life energy, chi, etc.), which he called orgone, using a modified geiger counter.
Dr. Reich determined that stacking alternating layers of fiberglass (an organic substance) and steel wool (an inorganic substance) would actually attract and collect orgone/etheric energy of both the life-beneficial positive form (which Reich called “OR” or “POR“) and harmful negative etheric energy (“deadly orgone” or “DOR“).
He constructed large boxes called orgone accumulators or “oracs” using this simple layering principle and was able to successfully heal his patients of various ailments, including various forms of cancer, by having them sit inside the box for periods of time.
In 1986, scientists at the University of Marburg, Germany published the results of a blind study1 which showed that 30-minute orgone accumulator treatments caused consistent, positive psycho-physiological effects not seen with the all-fiberglass box used for a control, stating “the results received in our investigation furnish evidence for the assumption that the physical properties of the orgone accumulator and its psychophysiological efficacy on human organisms, postulated by Reich and his associates, factually exist.”
Reich’s work was continued in earnest in the 1960’s by more open-minded Russian scientists such as Dr. Nikolai Kozyrev (1908-1983), who also scientifically proved that such unseen energies indeed exist all around us, and who’s Reich-inspired work led to the unfortunate development of practical Soviet military defense applications which utilized principles of so-called “torsion fields” (e.g., etheric energy). Kozyrev’s work, which indeed confirms both Reich’s research and our empirical experiences with orgonite, was classified until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.
Following in their footsteps, thousands of Ph.D.-level researchers from both sides of the Iron Curtain spanning multiple generations have continued Kozyrev and Reich’s pioneering work, slowly forcing mainstream Western science to finally, “officially recognize” the concept of a universal, unseen energy medium they call “dark matter,” “vacuum flux” or “zero-point energy,” depending on who you ask. It is commonly understood among orgonite enthusiasts that these are all essentially describing the same thing, which Reich called “orgone”.
