THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE MIND AND BODY
Orgone energy was originally observed by Wilhelm Reich, MD, a psychoanalyst in the late 1920s, as a bio-electrical charge whose flow within the body could be
visibly seen as waves passing through his clinical patients as they were experiencing intense emotional breakthroughs.
Later, in the 1930s, to confirm his visual observations, Reich was able to objectively measure the movements of this energy by using a very sensitive millivolt meter
with sensors attached to the body to record subtle bio-electric charge.
He found :
1.)The energy flowed from the inside body core to the outside surface (towards the world) when a person felt pleasure or expansion
2.)The energy flowed from the surface to the interior (away from the world) during states of anxiety, fear, and contraction.
Reich also noted that the conditions of expansion and contraction affected a person, not only emotionally, but down to the autonomic nervous system, to the
cellular, and even chemical levels. (3) States of expansion produce parasympathetic conditions associated with dilation of the blood vessels and increased
circulation, pain relief, better digestion and peristalsis, lower blood pressure; and the stimulation of potassium and lecithin production; along with creating a sense
of well-being, and sexual excitement. States of contraction, however, produce sympathetic effects: constricted blood vessels, less blood flow, and often pain. In
addition, the contracted condition increases blood pressure and heart beat rate, adrenaline flow and cholesterol; it inhibits digestion and blood supply to the
genitals and is associated with the emotions of anxiety and "stress".
The ability of the body to expand and contract and not become "stuck" in one mode, created what Reich called the pulsation of life which distinguished the living
from the non-living. This pulsation of expansion and contraction also followed a specific four-beat rhythm:
Tension - Charge - Discharge - Relaxation
Reich observed this energy pattern within the organs of the body: from the beat of the heart, to peristaltic movements of the intestine, the bladder, and especially
obvious in the sexual function of orgastic discharge. He called this pulsating pattern THE FUNCTION OF THE ORGASM or THE LIFE FORMULA .
Bions and Biogenesis
To better understand the flow and functions of this bio-energy, Reich sought to observe the simplest life forms: microscopic protozoans. He made a startling
discovery while preparing a grass infusion ( soaking dry grass in water) which he was told by a biologist would produce the protozoans. Curious to see the actual
formation of a protozoa, Reich microscopically observed the swelling grass daily as it underwent decomposition. He saw small, round, blue-glowing vesicles form
along the grass edges. It was these small vesicles, which he later called bions, that broke free, regrouped into clumps, formed outer membranes, and eventually
swam off as amoebas and paramecium. Further, he found that sterilizing the preparations only accelerated the biogenesis, the creation of living organisms from
While further studying the formation and function of the bions, Reich found that they could be made from disintegrating inorganic matter as well as organic and
could even be placed on a nutrient media and grown as a culture.
One such culture of bions produced from heated sand, had very unusual properties: in the dark, the culture dishes radiated a soft blue color; when held in the
hand, a "prickling" could be felt; nearby small lab tools became magnetized; skin of the lab workers became tan under their clothing and when a small amount of
the culture was placed next to bacteria, the strongly radiating bions would immobilize and kill them.
Discovery of Orgone Energy
Reich strongly suspected that the sand bions gave off a radiation. To isolate the culture dishes from other sources of possible radiation, Reich built a wire Faraday
cage and covered it with cotton and wood. After placing several culture dishes inside and looking through a small opening, he observed flashes of light and bluish
vapors inside the box. These visible signs of radiation came definitely from the bion cultures. Even more remarkably, when he took the culture dishes out, the
visible effects of this radiation were still seen - even after dismantling, washing, and reassembling the cage. Reich quite accidentally found the radiation that was
emanating from the culture dishes was also present, independently, in the atmosphere and could be concentrated within a metal-lined enclosure.
He called this radiation orgone energy.
Accumulating Orgone Energy
Reich found that organic materials attracted and held orgone energy; and metal attracted and then rapidly repelled it. By designing an enclosure, similar to the
Faraday cage, lined on the inside with metal and made with alternating layers of organic and inorganic materials, he discovered that atmospheric orgone energy
was accumulated and concentrated inside. He called this device an orgone energy accumulator. Within the box-like enclosure, the orgone energy given off by an
inside metal wall is attracted to the opposite metal wall which again repels it. This creates an oscillation of the orgone energy particles inside. The layering of
organic material with metal creates a higher concentration. He experimentally objectified this discovery by observing that the temperature inside an orgone
accumulator was higher than inside a control device or outside air temperature. Also, an electroscope which is a device that can be charged with "static" electricity,
discharged more slowly inside of an orgone accumulator than outside. These two experiments confirmed that there was "something different" about the
atmosphere inside of an orgone accumulator that didn't conform to standard physics. Through many years of careful, experimental research, Reich was able to
define the basic properties of orgone energy: (6)
* it fills all space and is everywhere
* it's mass free and is the primordial, cosmic energy
* it penetrates matter, but at different speeds
* it pulsates and is observable and measurable
* it has a strong affinity and attraction to/by water
* it is accumulated naturally in the living organism by ingesting foods, breathing, and through the
* the mutual attraction and excitation of separate orgonotic systems result in the merging, or superimposition, of the systems; and the emergence of a new system
* orgone energy is negatively entropic: highly charged orgone systems attract lesser charged, which Reich described as the orgonotic potential
* orgone energy is excited by secondary energies such as electromagnetism and nuclear energy . Note: An Electromagnetic field caused by a vortex would thus
excite the orgone energy M.S.
* when it is concentrated, orgone energy often has a blue-to-violet color.
ORGONE ENERGY IN THE HUMAN BODY
When Reich was studying the bions, he also observed that red blood cells, when not fixed and stained, also disintegrate into bions like the grass in water. In
addition, when red blood cells are looked at in an alive state, an energy field is visible around them and Reich felt they were the carriers of orgone energy as well
as oxygen throughout the body. He further observed that when people were ill, the energy field around the blood cells was smaller, and they broke down more
rapidly into either bions or numerous, smaller T-bacilli that indicated a toxic condition in the body. ("T" stands for "tod"; the German word for death.) If the production
of large amounts of T-bacilli continued, they, in turn, were not only a result, but became a cause of furthering the disease process.
The whole human body generates an energy field, often called an "aura". Normally, we replace used-up orgone energy by eating foods which break down into
bions through digestion; also, breathing that takes in orgone energy directly from the atmosphere into the lungs and blood; and the skin absorbs orgone energy,
especially when exposed to sunlight, which Reich felt was a major source of orgone energy radiation in the atmosphere. These sources refuel the energy at the
biological core and the tension-charge-discharge-relaxation metabolism throughout the body. In a healthy individual, these functions are uninhibited.
Reich knew from his character-analytic work with patients , that most people, mainly because of anxiety, suppress emotions and block their energy flow. We do this
by inhibiting our breathing and tensing muscles that prevent a complete pulsation of charge and discharge in our bodies. When the shallow breathing and spastic
muscles become chronic, a contractive state sets in and the amount of orgone energy in the body is diminished. Consequently, the orgone field around the red
blood cells decreases, the plasma in the cells shrinks, and they more quickly breakdown into the toxic T-bacilli. The entire body is further weakened and becomes
susceptible to illness. Reich termed this underlying crippling of the energy functions and the weakening of the body a biopathy. The root word "bio" means life, and
"pathy" means disease or suffering. Various physical disorders are only symptoms, or expressions, of this deeper energetic disturbance that affects the body all
the way down to the cellular level.
Reich identified two main biopathies which result from a blocking of energy functions. One is the cardiovascular biopathy in which the body's biological core
continues to produce energy to the fullest extent and sexual functioning remains alive. However, when the energy hits the contracting blocks, the person reacts with
outbreaks of anxiety or anger. Physical symptoms include excessive heart rate, overactive thyroid, diarrhea, etc.
The other biopathy is the shrinking biopathy which occurs when the biological core reduces its energy production and sexual excitation and emotions become
weaker and weaker; chronic resignation sets in, fatigue, and an energy suffocation of the cells and tissues. This depletion of cellular energy leads to an
accelerated breakdown, an auto-infestation of T-bacilli, and, if prolonged, the appearance of anemia, immune system dysfunctions, degenerative illnesses, and
Another condition, which can occur in both the cardiovascular and shrinking biopathies, is the sudden, excessive clamping down of the energy functions in the
body which can directly and severely reduce the amount of energy available from the core to the rest of the body. When this condition becomes chronic, it can
become part of the shrinking biopathy; or it can occur only when a person experiences severe sexual anxiety. Reich called this condition anorgonia.
REVERSING THE SHRINKING BIOPATHY
Even a healthy individual's blood contains some T-bacilli. However, healthy red blood cells and tissues normally break down into the strongly radiating blue bions
and the tendency toward disintegration into T-bacilli is fought off; the few that exist are immobilized by the stronger bions. Reich felt that the disposition to disease
can be determined by the biological resistance of blood and tissue - the orgonotic potency of the body - against the kind of living decay seen when large amounts
of T-bacilli appear. Reich felt this was identical to the concept of "immunity". The key to restoring health is to slow the rate of cellular breakdown and change the
cell's disintegration from a T-bacilli reaction to a bion reaction. The way to do this is to increase the energy charge in the red blood cells and tissues; the means to
do this is to increase the energy charge in the whole body.
Methods to increase an individuals charge include the encouragement of deeper breathing; physical exercise is helpful here, too. The quality of food is also
important as studies of the bionous breakdown of food show that more naturally nutritious foods tend to break down into bions; and heavily processed foods
produce more T-bacilli. Exposure to fresh air and sunshine also increase energetic charge.
In this regard, emotional therapy is additionally helpful, if not always essential, to aid in releasing the spastic muscles and inhibitions that led to the chronic
holding to begin with. And this is often the hardest work. However, if the currently high sales of anti-depressants, stimulants, and Viagra are any indication, the
emotional problems Reich observed are still widespread. He saw the biopathies as both a result and cause of our social and family practices that daily recreate
the emotional and physical misery.
THE FUNCTION OF THE ORGONE ACCUMULATOR
When a person uses an orgone accumulating device, the energy field of the user and the energy field of the device make contact, excite each other, and the two
fields luminate, creating an even stronger charge. Since a human being has the higher energy charge, the user attracts and absorbs the energy from the
accumulator into every part of their body. The increased absorption of the same bio-energy that is in the body helps the body to expand, thereby reducing the
contractive state and promoting natural pulsation.
The restoration of the parasympathetic response improves the flow of blood to tissues and organs which allows them to function better, resist damage and
recover easier from injury; it promotes cellular growth, eases tension and pain, assists digestion and peristalsis, improves appetite when this is impaired,
increases core body temperature and can impart an emotional sense of well-being. The orgone accumulator helps the body to help itself by supplying
concentrated orgone energy
In studies using laboratory mice, Reich (and other researchers since) found that the orgone accumulator had a remarkable affect on wounds and burns. In
addition, because of the stimulation of the expansive parasympathetic response, the symptoms of "shock" could be affected.
Reich believed that the main contribution of his discovery of the orgone energy accumulator was aiding in the prevention of severe biopathic disturbances.The
increased orgone energy recharges the red blood cells and tissues which may reverse the cellular degeneration from a T-bacilli reaction to the healthier bion
reaction, thereby improving the entire body's resistance. However, depending upon the severity of the biopathy, this is not necessarily an easy thing to do. The liver
and kidneys can have difficulty eliminating the products of degenerative tissues and cells. Detoxifying programs can be especially helpful in relieving this problem.
Today, we have many environmentally provoked cancers where the chronic damaging of tissues can create a localized T-bacilli reaction which can eventually
develop into a tumor. Reich noted even in these situations, that the spreading of a tumor was always preceded by the accelerated degeneration of tissue into
bions and especially T-bacilli: cancer never spread into healthy tissue.
WHO CAN USE AN ORGONE ACCUMULATOR?
Orgone energy accumulators can be used by almost everyone. However, Reich noted that people with certain blocked, high energy conditions should either be very
cautious or not use an orgone accumulator. An initial increase in heart beat rate often occurs when using an orgone accumulating device. Even though this
increased rate usually subsides, often to a lower rate than before use, nevertheless, it can cause harmful stress to already damaged hearts. People with the
following heart ailments should not use an orgone accumulator, or only under very close supervision: decompensated heart disease, high blood pressure,
arteriosclerosis or heavy obesity.
In addition, people with the following blocked, high energy states should NOT use an orgone accumulator: brain tumors, glaucoma, epilepsy or people who suffer
from apoplectic attacks
Preliminary experience indicates that caution be used with people suffering from ALS or MS.
Conditions that can worsen with orgone accumulator use are skin inflammations, rashes, and conjunctivitis.
Within the last twenty years, two double-blind experiments using orgone accumulators were performed at medical universities in Germany and Austria. The
results confirmed some of Reich's findings: the subjects using the orgone accumulator recorded both higher core body temperatures and also, initially, a faster
heart beat rate. In addition, most reported feeling a sense of well-being and various effects associated with a stimulation of the parasympathetic system.
Individuals with very low energy or shrinking biopathies should use the stronger accumulators. How often and for how long a person should use an orgone
accumulator is a question that concerns both the energetic strength of the user and the accumulator. A person with robust energy may use a 3 ply accumulator
once a week for 10 minutes or only when they are feeling especially tired. An average person may use it twice a week for 15 to 20 minutes, or only when needed. A
weaker or aging person may use a 5 ply every other day for 20 minutes, or only when needed; and someone with a severe shrinking biopathy may use a 7 or 10 ply
for 20 minutes to an hour every other day for a month. There is no mechanical rule as to how long or when to use an orgone accumulator and it is something the
individual needs to work out for themselves.
After using an orgone accumulator for some minutes, a warmth, relaxation and sometimes a prickliness may be felt. The skin may flush and sweat develop. There
is a feeling of a "soft glow", and of well-being. When these sensations are no longer felt, or there is a sudden urge to do other things, the session should end.
Some people who have very low energy fields may take a month or more of use before they are recharged enough to feel these effects.
When using an orgone accumulator, a person wears as little clothing as is comfortable so that the energy can more easily penetrate the skin. However, being fully
clothed is also just fine as the energy will penetrate the clothing, too; it will just take a little longer for the charge to build.
There is the possibility of becoming overcharged by using the orgone accumulator for too long a time during a session, or too often. The body can only take in so
much energy; when this capacity is exceeded, an overcharge is felt. The symptoms of overcharge are a dizziness, pressure in the head, headache, and slight
nausea. Simply ending the session and resting in fresh air will quickly dissipate the overcharge. Soaking baths can help reduce the charge also.
Another sign of overcharge is when a person has been using an accumulator daily, notices their energy improving, but they also find it difficult to get to sleep at
night or they become constantly flushed in the face, or chronically irritable. If this occurs, cutting back either the amount of time in a session, or not using it every
day can alleviate this problem. It is not advisable to continually become overcharged and better to use an accumulator for short sessions, several times a day, than
for one over-extended time.
It may also be the case that an orgone accumulating device should not be used long term, every day for months, and especially, years on end; but only when
needed for short periods. Even if the user continues to feel benefits after daily long-term use, an overcharge may be present that is not readily felt and that may
disturb the natural pulsation of the body. In addition, if a person has a physical problem, using an orgone accumulator will impart more energy, but this may not be
solving the underlying problem that caused the lack of energy to begin with. Continual, daily use of an orgone accumulator for months can possibly develop chronic
overcharge conditions and should be avoided.
Emotions such as anger, anxiety or sadness can also be stimulated by using an orgone accumulator. These feelings surface when the building energy charge
hits a block that can provoke an emotional discharge. An increased energy charge can also create sexual feeling much as cardiovascular exercise can; but it is not
a "cure" for orgastic impotency or other neuroses: only emotional therapy can fully address these problems.
THE ENERGETIC ENVIRONMENT
Since the orgone accumulator concentrates atmospheric orgone energy, the quality of the atmosphere is very important to its functioning. Orgone accumulators
work best on dry, sunny days when the charge in the atmosphere is strong. The time between noon and 3:00 seems strongest. On cloudy or rainy days, the orgone
charge is held in the clouds, off the surface of the Earth, and so the charge of the accumulator will be less. The charge is also less at night when the sun's direct
radiation is gone. An orgone accumulating device can still be used under these conditions; it will just take longer for a charge to build up. Full moon nights, though,
can be quite energetic. Also, orgone accumulators are stronger at higher altitudes and closer to the equator.
There are days when the atmospheric energy seems "dead"; these days are marked by extreme haziness; sometimes accompanied by excessive heat and
dryness. Animal life as well as people seem sluggish and "out of sorts". Reich identified this kind of atmosphere, especially marked by a certain quality to the
haziness, as a condition caused by deadened orgone energy that has become toxic. It literally drains the life and moisture out of living things. He called this toxic
energy dor: for deadly orgone energy. We are not sure of all the sources of this toxic energy as it is not the same as sulfite-based air pollution. However, it is
observed all over the world, especially in association with deserts. When this dorish haze is present, it is best not to use an orgone accumulator, and after it
passes, to air out the accumulator in fresh air, or wipe down the metal walls with water to restore a fresh charge.
Above: Hazy "dor" conditions visible in a countryside setting where there are not any sulphite pollution sources such as factories or heavy auto traffic. Note the lack
of deep blue sky color and a dullness to the vegetation even though this is a clear, sunny day. Severe dor conditions are when the stand of trees beyond the field
would only be barely visible due to heavy dor haze.
Reich also found that strong secondary energies can irritate the orgone accumulator creating an unpleasant, agitated energy reaction called oranur. Reich
discovered this reaction while he was experimenting with radioactive materials. The orgone energy went into a frenzied state that irritated and severely
overcharged people. If prolonged, the oranur reaction can eventually deaden the healthy orgone, creating a hazy dor condition. The oranur reaction can also occur
in the presence of strong electromagnetic fields. In particular, cathode ray guns not only give off strong EM fields from their transformers, but the electron beam
itself is so highly charged that it can give off low-dose x-rays.
For these reasons, it is extremely important not to use or store an orgone accumulator near operating TVs, fluorescent lights or CRT computers. Nor should they
be used around x-ray machines, radioactive smoke detectors, or within 50 miles of a nuclear reactor. Living near electrical transformer stations, microwave towers
and other high-powered energy carriers is not advisable whether you have an orgone accumulator or not. In addition, due to high EM fields, orgone accumulators
should not be used near electric sparking motors, air ionizing machines, microwave ovens, or with electric blankets. Strong chemical fumes also disturb the
orgone energy. Normal incandescent light bulbs or household appliances do not generate very high EM fields and are usually not a problem on or off.
Strong electromagnetic and radioactive fields are harmful to living things whether or not an orgone energy accumulator is present. Remember, the human body is
an orgone energy system, too, and is affected by these radiations even though we may not directly feel them. This is observed especially in children who often
become over-excited when they start to watch TV (oranur reaction); however, if their exposure is prolonged, they soon tire and become the "couch potato" (dor
condition). Orgonics sells various energy detection meters to help determine the quality of the energy environment so that changes can be made to clean it up.
WHERE TO PLACE AND STORE ORGONE ACCUMULATING DEVICES
The large, sit-in, full size orgone accumulator boxes generate a strong orgone field both inside and out, as overtime, a field can develop around it. For this reason,
it is best to locate them in an outside covered area where they will remain dry and have a good circulation of fresh air to help maintain their charge. An enclosed
back porch, unused garage, or a dry out-building are good locations. If an accumulator must be placed within a home, an unused room, with good ventilation and
no orgone irritating equipment will work. Basements can be used as long as they are dry, have good ventilation, and the accumulator is not placed near electrical
boxes, furnaces, etc. Frequently wiping down the metal walls with water, or placing a bowl of water inside an accumulator when it's not being used, will help to
maintain a fresh charge and discourage an overcharge build-up.
If an indoor room, apartment, or house does develops a stuffy, irritable, overcharged feeling, the area should be immediately ventilated, the accumulator's metal
walls wiped down with water, and if possible, the accumulator should be temporarily relocated outside the living area.
Industrial, urban environments contain an atmosphere that is often chemically polluted and saturated with EM fields. It still might be possible to have an orgone
accumulator in such an environment; however, special precautions must be taken. The room a large orgone accumulator is located in, should be seldom used
and have absolutely no orgone irritating devices like computers, fluorescent lights or electric heaters. The room should have constant, good ventilation. A bowl of
water should be placed inside the accumulator when not in use and the walls wiped down at least weekly to maintain a healthy charge. Numerous houseplants
also help keep the atmosphere in the room fresh. If the room or apartment does become overcharged, there should be a contingency plan for a relocation of the
accumulating device so that the charge in the home can return to normal.
I should note that some people, usually with low energy, report the presence of an accumulating device in their home as "energizing and soothing"; however,
others have great difficulty tolerating the additional charge and it can be harmful to them. With the increases in high energy solar storms, nuclearized areas, and
dor weather emergencies, it is often advisable to store all orgone energy devices outside the living area when not actually being used.
