Wilhelmm Reich, thrown out of the pyschoanalytical society for being too marxist, thrown out of the communist society for being too freudian, thrown out of the socailist party for being too anarchistic. Then came to the U.S where he was thrown in jail for being a "cancer nut". very important character in my opinoin, oh and you cant forget the battling of UFO's in the desert with a Orgone gun. any one who made that many enemys must of had something important to say, I think his books are very important. Have fun with the article below!
A Non-Profit Science Research and
Educational Foundation, Since 1978
Founded and Directed by James DeMeo, Ph.D.
Building Upon the Discoveries of the
Internationally Acclaimed Natural Scientist, Wilhelm Reich, M.D.
Welcome to James DeMeo's research web site, and home page for the Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory. DeMeo has been investigating the work of the late Dr. Wilhelm Reich since 1970, and founded OBRL in 1978. With cooperative assistance from a network of professionals and institutes supportive of Wilhelm Reich's original discoveries, OBRL has grown to become one of the world's primary centers for genuine and uncompromised research and educational programs focused upon Orgonomy, the science of orgone (life) energy functions in nature, as developed by Reich in the first half of the 20th Century.
Starting in 1977, as part of his graduate research at the University of Kansas, DeMeo undertook replication studies of Reich's biophysical research -- specifically, a systematic evaluation of the Reich cloudbuster which yielded positive results. The acceptance of DeMeo's work by the KU faculty constituted the first time any aspect of Reich's controversial biophysical research had been validated by peer-review within a mainstream academic institution. Through the organizational structure of OBRL, and with the cooperative assistance and support of many other individuals and groups dedicated to Reich's works, DeMeo has since directed field applications of the cloudbuster apparatus, successfully ending droughts across the USA and overseas as well, with applications towards reducing the energetic stagnation characteristic of wetter regions suffering from chronic air pollution and forest-death. A number of Desert Greening expeditions have also been organized and directed by DeMeo within the arid zones of the Southwestern USA, and into the dry regions of Namibia and Israel, producing a dramatic verification of Reich's earlier findings on the ability of the cloudbuster to bring rains under even extremely dry conditions. With the support of local governments, a five-year desert-greening experiment was also undertaken in the 1990s, in the East African Sahel region adjacent to the hyperarid Sahara Desert. All of these projects have produced significantly positive results with sometimes-dramatic increases in rainfall, ending dry episodes of sometimes decades duration, filling reservoirs and greening parched landscapes. This work constitutes a major breakthrough in combating the intractable problems of drought and desert-spreading, with their attendant famine and social-economic upheavals, and is a major focus of research activity at OBRL.
In the early 1980s, DeMeo embarked upon what was then, and still remains, the most comprehensive and systematic global cross-cultural study of human behavior yet undertaken, a 10-year research effort which focused upon the geographical parameters of human behavior, as expressed in archaeology, history, and cross-cultural ethnography. DeMeo's numerous behavior maps of various social institutions and eventual discovery of the social/environmental region of Saharasia as the original historical source region of patriarchal authoritarian societies, solved the riddle of what Reich called the origins of armoring. Saharasia, now in a comprehensive book, demonstrates the origins of human violence in traumatic and sex-repressive social institutions during the historically-unprecedented epoch of drought, desertification, famine and mass-migrations which gripped the Old World after c.4000 BCE. This work constitutes a precise and systematic cross-cultural validation of Wilhelm Reich's sex-economic hypothesis on the origins of human neurosis and irrationalism, and proof of the global validity of his Mass Psychology of Fascism. New research continues into this important subject area, confronting popular claims on the "genetic" or "innate" nature of human violence, with attempts to bring the findings contained in Saharasia to a wider public. Experimental investigation into orgone energy functions in nature continues at OBRL, verifying many of Reich's original findings on the orgone accumulator, with efforts underway towards quantitative evaluations of the elusive properties of living water ("activated" or "structured" water). DeMeo's work along this track has uncovered measurable changes in water evaporation and surface tension due to orgone-charging, as well as plant growth-enhancement effects. Through OBRL and the Natural Energy Works publication and distribution company, DeMeo's Orgone Accumulator Handbook, Saharasia and the OBRL Pulse of the Planet research journal have been distributed world-wide, in English and other languages. Research undertaken by DeMeo and associates of OBRL constitutes a major support for Reich's earlier findings, with important extensions and bridges built between Reich's orgonomy and a few of the more open and genuine elements of modern science.
In 1995, the Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory relocated to a pristine, energetically-vital forested environment in rural southwestern Oregon, and the Greensprings Center was born. A new laboratory building was constructed, which doubles as a seminar facility, and an orgone-energy darkroom was added in 1998. New research was initiated, and laboratory-oriented educational seminars, taught by teams of top-notch professionals with decades of experience, have been offered each summer on central aspects of orgonomy. These include weekend seminars on "Bions, Biogenesis and the Reich Blood Test", and on "The Orgone Energy Accumulator", as well as a special three-week "Guided Independent Study Program" for the more serious individual. Special seminars on Saharasia and Global Weather are also offered periodically, as are other special topics. Professionals and students, young and old and from around the world, meet each summer at the OBRL Greensprings Center to get a first-hand experience.
From the Laboratory Director:
"Where psychiatry and psychoanalysis have failed to resolve the dilemma of destructive human aggression, Reich's sex-economy succeeded. Where mechanistic biochemistry failed to elucidate the riddle of the origins of life, or of the cancer cell, Reich's bion experiments, and discovery of a specific life energy, has brought forth their solutions. While neither mechanistic science nor mystical philosophies have shed any light on the longstanding problems of sadism and warfare, or on the world-wide human fear and hatred of nature, Reich's work pinpoints their origins in specific traumatic, sex-negative social institutions which damage the young, and from which sadistic urges develop. Indeed, his sex-economic work has withstood the most rigorous cross-cultural testing, and explains the genesis of destructive human aggression and violence better and more completely than any other theory. Moreover, his work demonstrates the preventable nature of such violence, exposing its roots in our awful treatments of babies, children, and adolescents. My own geographical research extended his findings to show exactly when and where violent, patristic human societies first appeared on Earth, the exact conditions under which they arose, the means by which they spread, and from which their modern-day political expressions developed. Reich's complementary discovery of a specific life energy, the orgone, is likewise founded upon sound, verifiable experiments. Even his orgone accumulator, dismissed by know-nothings as a 'quack' appliance, turns out to be a potent therapeutic device, capable of beneficially stimulating the physiology of plants, animals, and people. The orgone, as a directly observable and measurable atmospheric energy, also plays a fundamental role in our weather, as proven by many experiments with the cloudbusting instrument, a device which has already been used to break many droughts, and bring rains to deserts. For many years I have researched and tested Reich's various discoveries, and found them to be sound, and worthy of our most serious considerations. He has laid the foundations for an entirely new functional science and world view, which has already borne significant and badly-needed fruits." -- James DeMeo, Ph.D., April, 1987.
-------------------- "Weaving Spiders Come Not Here"
I understand that his proposals regarding orgone haven't been very well-received, in fact, the government locked him up for selling orgone accumulators, etc....
At the same time, the scientists in this writing proclaim that the orgone accumulator has demonstrated its effectiveness at breaking droughts and turning desert into land that is suitable for green growth, etc. etc....
Does anyone else know of this? I am really interested in knowing if projects to produce rainfall to break droughts has actually, demonstrably worked.
I remain skeptical, of course.... the article proclaims him as an "Internationally Acclaimed natural scientist, noting his medical doctorate (), despite the fact that it doesn't seem he has been very well-received at all.....
If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
