This book tells the story of how mainstream science has twice denied and concealed the discovery of the origin of life, the until now mysterious step by which non-life moves to become life. Robert Brown, the great botanist and microscopist witnessed the process in 1827 and described it in his famous  1828 paper, A Brief Account of Microscopical Observations…He observed apparently alive, motile bodies emerging from pollen grains in water. These gathered in clumps that spontaneously rolled or bent. He unmistakeably connected his discovery to the earlier work of other pioneers in the same field. A year later, in 1829, he published a strange document, Additional Remarks, in which he denied he had ever made such a claim.  His paper has gone down in the history of science as the discovery of ‘Brownian motion.’


In 1936 Wilhelm Reich discovered the process of bionous disintegration.  Dead matter, allowed to swell in water or a nutrient fluid, broke down into microscopic vesicles that he named bions. These pulsated, danced around each other in pairs, and often agglomerated into motile proto-organisms. His moving vesicles were dismissed as ‘Brownian motion’ or contamination. He published his findings openly, but no-one made  a serious attempt to replicate his experiments and his findings were ridiculed. A press campaign tried to hound him out of Norway, where he was working as a refugee from Nazism. He escaped to the USA just before the outbreak of World War II and continued with his work.


Artificers of Fraud summarises the stories of Browns and Reich’s work, and shows how science’s denial and concealment have continued to this day. It includes the text of Brown’s original two papers and extracts from Reich’s writings on the topic. It includes enough information for students of microscopy and even beginners to repeat these classic experiments themselves, information on buying a microscope, a detailed glossary of relevant terms and names, and an index.

Peter Jones has been a life-long student of orgonomy, the science of the life-energy, and has made a special study of Brown’s experiments and precursors of Reich’s discoveries. He is the founder of C O R E (Centre for Orgonomic Research and Education), the UK’s only life-energy research and teaching organisation, and has contributed to orgonomic conferences and seminars in various countries.


The proceeds from the sales of this book will be devoted entirely to the support of orgonomy, the science of the life energy, in the UK.
