Scientifically Repeatable Demonstrations of the Orgone
and Its Effects
If you browse on YouTube under 'vitalism' or read about it in books, you always come across the assumption that vitalism is a completely mystical belief and that the 'life force' and its effects cannot ever be investigated or demonstrated scientifically. When I encounter this assumption on YouTube, I always post a comment to the effect that one can conduct repeatable scientific experiments into the nature of the life force or demonstrations of its existence and that it can be measured with a meter. Needless to say, none of the channels expressing the above criticism of 'vitalism' ever contacts me to ask what these experiments are and where they can buy a meter that will measure the life force or its effects. (Well, one asked me what these areas of science were that he had missed in his training. I directed him to this page and I haven't heard a word from him since.) Serious students of orgonomy and visitors to this site will doubtless have read about Turner's Orgasmatron book. (Please go to Orgasmatron Review for more information.) We never hear from these slandering, malicious critics. I do not know of a single example where an authentic, genuine scientist has repeated any of Reich's basic experimental investigations and been unable to confirm Reich's findings. The critics just brand orgonomy as rubbish and carry on as before. The reception of Turner's book by ignorant journalists is a good example of how decades of scientific work are received by completely ignorant critics who know nothing of orgonomy or how to assess scientific findings.
So...here is a list of effects of or demonstrations of the effects of the orgone, ranging from the softest, most subjective at the beginning, to the hardest and most scientific and least subjective at the end. For more information see Reich's original writings or C O R E's booklets.
There are others, but these are all ones that we can demonstrate at C O R E or at any event that we take part in. In practice some need far more time than that avilable at, say, a weekend event, but can still be arranged and shown, given enough committment. To carry out some of these demonstrations we need an orgone dark-room. This in itself is not a very expensive or complicated item to construct. It just needs a few square yards of ground, which C O R E does not have at the moment. If we ever have our own centre, the construction of such a darkroom will be one of our immediate priorities. As far as I know, the only orgone dark-rooms in existence at the moment are Reich's original at Orgonon, near Rangeley, Maine, and one at James DeMeo's OBRL, Greensprings, Oregon. The study of the orgone in the dark-room is a vitally interesting experience which I recommend to all students of orgonomy. If you get a chance to visit either of these dark-rooms, jump at it. Better still, just make yourself an opportunity to go and see and sit in them.
Added 10. 3. 13. C O R E's publication, Artificers of Fraud, gives an interested student enough information to buy a suitable microscope and to carry out the basic bion experiments on your own at home. This volume has now been published and is available for UK buyers to order by post. Please send a cheque for £13:50, which covers second-class postage, to Orgonomy UK, PO Box, 1331, Preston, PR2 OSZ. We have now posted an on-line PayPal payment facility. To access this go to Artificers of Fraud. PS: See also our latest publications, Bions for Beginners and Expansion and Contraction.
The photo above was taken at the Carunchio seminar, Easter 2012, and shows two plates of bean sprouts, that on the left sprouted in an orgone accumulator, the one on the right the controls, untreated. This is a classic, often repeated orgonomic experiment, which a child interested in science could carry out. The only item of equipment needed, apart from the seeds, is a small orgone accumulator. This experiment has been replicated by many different orgonomic workers. I have lost count how often I have done it myself, but it must be at least 10 times, always with strongly positive results.
