Part 1 - Orgone & Non-locality.

By Leon Southgate



Introduction and Summary of Previous Essays


Wilhelm Reich discovered a life-creative cosmic and biological energy which he called orgone. For years I have tried to understand how such a life-energy may relate to consciousness – mostly without success. I propose however that this relationship, between orgone and consciousness, is comprehensible theoretically and that there is preliminary evidence for such a position.

If one doubts that orgone itself exists please see the synopsis of 50 plus years of orgonomic research within my Reich Biblio or check out this link to Dr Demeo’s current research at www.orgonelab.org. There is good evidence for a life-energy both within orgonomy and outside of it. Orgonomy has good evidence for the anomalous functioning of the orgone accumulator (Synopsis section, page 228 of Reich Biblio) and the cloudbuster (Synopsis section, page 207 of Reich Biblio) amongst other aspects of Reich’s original research. The scientists, Alfven, Arp, Benveniste, Berkson, Becker, Brown, Kevran, Miller and Sheldrake all detail evidence which supports the existence of orgone in separate fields to orgonomy (Appendix 1).

In previous essays I have outlined a map for how I think this relationship between orgone and consciousness might work. As a foundation for understanding I found I had no choice but to re-evaluate the definition of orgone. Instead of orgone being purely an energy phenomenon (something that moves in time and space) I posited that it may be a three part continuum. It would range from ‘spirit’ to ‘energy’ to ‘matter’.

It is impossible to understand something like consciousness, something that is clearly not an energy phenomenon, in terms of energy. Our sense of self, our observing ‘being’ is not energy. We cannot gain more of our self, concentrate or discharge our self as though it were energy. Self, perception and consciousness are not quantitative like energy. Something about oneself stubbornly stays the same despite the flow of time. In addition, aspects of cognition have been shown to be outside of the flow of time altogether, precognition in humans, or precognitive behavior in animals being examples. The latter has been shown to exist experimentally in animals by the scientist Sheldrake (Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home, R. Sheldrake). Such abilities cannot be energetic as energy only exists as movement in time. Consciousness may have energetic aspects but it is essentially not an energy phenomenon. Modern consciousness research, for example using Random Event Generators, has detailed these aspects of consciousness extensively. A good summary can be found in ‘The Field’ by Lynne McTaggart.

I believe there could be a scientific definition of ‘spirit’. I proposed that the first part of an orgone continuum would be a non-material but strictly physical entity that possesses consciousness. As a background to this I have argued in the Preliminary Essays that we need to separate physicality from materiality, they are not the same thing. As I have stated, a physical-consciousness field is essentially no different to ‘spirit’. Those with a materialist outlook may prefer other words but although it was tempting to invent new terminology, the term ‘spirit’ is simpler and strictly used, already has the same meaning as I intend here. McTaggart refers to a similar concept with the notion of a universal 'field'. However, McTaggart's ‘field’ is a quantum physics-based interconnecting but essentially mystical non-physical field composed of nothingness (although she recognizes that this intangible, immeasurable universal field has real-life effects). I believe the primary realm to be entirely physical so I have used the term, 'spirit'. Please overlook any religious connotations, they are not intended.

I see physicality as a shared, continuing and lawful experience or reality. I define spirit as a universal field, force or entity that is non-material (not made of gross matter or particles) but physical (having lawful, continuing, shared reality) and that is conscious. I have indeed defined physicality in terms of consciousness but this is rational. As quantum physics comprehends, consciousness is the grounding of physical reality anyway. Besides which, there is no other way to define physicality than in terms of consciousness. One could argue that physicality is something that can be measured with scientific instruments but this falls down eventually for what is a measurement but a shared reality? And of course, a shared reality is a form of consciousness. Physicality always comes back to consciousness. However, this does not mean consciousness is ‘nothingness’. Consciousness is always physical. One cannot be aware of something that is not in effect a ‘body’. So all consciousness is bodily and all bodies are physical by my definition (having lawful reality).

To continue our thread here, this primary orgone ‘physical-consciousness’ would morph into what is traditionally termed orgone ‘energy’. This secondary energy realm would have all the properties Wilhelm Reich outlined. For example, a mass-creative, possibly slight-mass-possessing, life-creative energy which fills all space and is the basis of material movement. Then the last part of the continuum is the most material – what we call ‘matter’ (which Reich demonstrated arises from life-energy). So orgone is primarily a physical-consciousness or spirit field. Secondarily it becomes energy. Tertiary - it becomes matter - a tripartite continuum.


Tripartite Orgone Continuum 







Non-locality

The finding in quantum physics that particles can behave at times with non-locality (to be two places at once like a wave) spelt the beginning of the end for materialism. This is because particles are not always matter-like in their behaviour. An isolated particle appears to be able to behave at times like a wave, going through two experimental slits at once. Consciousness began to come into the equation too. This was because measurement of the two slit experiment appeared to affect the outcome - whether the particle behaved like a particle (and went through one slit of the double slit experiment) or behaved like a wave (going through both slits). The double-slit experiment appears to show that electrons can behave like waves or like particles under certain conditions to do with our interaction with the experiment. This changes our perception of matter. As the electron ‘wave-or-particle’ duality seemed to depend on our observation of the process, physicists began to talk of the primacy of the mind in creating physical reality.


Double Slit Experiment






The above illustration shows a single photon or particle being propagated at the first line which then goes through two slits at the second line (thus no longer behaving as a particle but as a distributed wave). The evidence that the particle has become a wave is demonstrated at the third line (a photographic plate) which shows the interference pattern of a wave. (The pattern of a particle would be a singular vertical line).

There is another leap to be made – orgone may also have non-local aspects to its functioning. If orgone has non-local properties then it means that orgone is not always behaving like energy. If orgone is not always behaving like energy it is much easier to envisage it behaving like a physical consciousness field. I recognise that the possible non-locality of orgone does not prove it is conscious independently but it is a major step in that direction. To return, energy cannot be in two distinct places at once as it is bound in time and space. Energy is not instantaneous. Energy is not itself consciousness. If orgone has non-local aspects and in addition possesses consciousness, then it could be argued that it is like ‘spirit’ in its primary manifestation or at least possesses some of the qualities associated with that term. It should be noted that I am not arguing that orgone is not energy. Most of its known functions remain describable as energy. I am arguing that it also has aspects of its functioning that are not energetic.

Previous Orgone Theories

I should mention that I believe Reich himself to have never made a firm decision on whether he viewed orgone as possessing consciousness in its free state, what I call orgone as, ‘conscious-in-itself’. This is because he simultaneously argued that perception may arise as a consequence of orgone’s movement within the membrane of an organism (the ‘movement-within-a-membrane’ theory of consciousness as I call it). This is actually not that different from the mechanistic views of consciousness which argue that consciousness arises from the processes of matter in the brain. Both are ‘consciousness-as-a-consequence’ theories. However, no one can show where exactly consciousness resides in the brain or in the body. Sheldrake gives convincing arguments scientifically (The Science Delusion, Freeing The Spirit of Enquiry by R. Sheldrake) against memory being stored as material traces. The non-localisation of memories does indeed contradict mechanical theories of consciousness. Orgone researchers might argue alternatively that consciousness is localised in the body. Certainly it is true that the body, like the brain, expresses and is an instrument of consciousness but to say that the body is our consciousness and without it consciousness would cease to exist is to ignore the growing body of data that suggests consciousness can survive material death. For example the large quantity of Near Death Experiences and research as recounted by Dr Eben Alexander or Dr Ray Moody. Alexander examines how none of the conventional materialist explanations for NDEs reflect the actual evidence – see Appendix B in Alexander's book, Proof of Heaven for a synopsis. The growing body of Western and Asian Past Life Research also contradicts consciousness being exclusively tied to the material realm, for example that of the US academic, Jim Tucker (http://uvamagazine.org/articles/the_science_of_reincarnation). Sheldrake’s arguments against materialisation of memory in the brain also apply to the body.

Reich hinted toward both the views of consciousness I have outlined (orgone as ‘conscious-in-itself’ and orgone creating consciousness through ‘movement-within-a-membrane’). I believe he was actually undecided on the matter, unless it was detailed in his two books written in prison and presumed stolen. He had other more pressing problems at this stage of his life (the 1950s), such as just surviving and of finishing the huge amount of work he had started in so many fields.

I should also note that if the view that consciousness arises from the movement of orgone ‘within-a-membrane’ is taken that this is not an orgonomic but a systems theory. However, it is interesting that Reich was an early proponent of systems theory in relation to consciousness.

Some within orgonomy (the study of orgone) have argued that perhaps free orgone possesses a limited amount of undeveloped consciousness. However, this concessionary argument seems to suffer from unnecessary restriction. If free orgone is conscious why should that consciousness be primitive? This is saying that without the material boundaries of an organism, orgone is primitive. But orgone is primary whereas the material realm is not even secondary but tertiery I believe. Additionally, consciousness may transcend material boundaries in for example, Near Death Experiences, Remote Viewing (see McTaggart’s The Field or Vibrational Medicine by Gerber) and Reincarnation research. So to say that the level of consciousness is entirely defined by organism boundaries is not supported. Such a view is actually just an opinion based on accepting some evidence (material existence) but ignoring the other fields stated above. To believe that consciousness is defined by matter alone I would have to forever ignore any evidence that suggests psychic, spiritual or non-local phenomena are real. Society is lop-sided toward materialism and is very particular about what science it accepts. For example, it accepts that there is no cosmic aether based on a handful of often poorly conducted experiments such as by Michelson and Morley and by rejecting Dayton Miller’s work (aether is a related concept to life-energy). In the same vein society dismisses psychic and spiritual phenomena that have centuries and libraries worth of detailed documentation. Is that really rational?

Synopsis of Introduction

I am proposing the hypothesis that in its primary state orgone is independently conscious and physical but mass-free and thus corresponds to what could now be called ‘spirit’ but in a strictly scientific sense. If preferred the terms, ‘Primary Field’, ‘Prime Force’ or ‘Physico-Consciousness’ could be used to describe this level of the life-force or orgone. I tend to use the phrase life-force rather than life-energy to describe orgone in totality as this phrase is more compatible with orgone being a continuum as detailed.

1: Theoretical Basis

As discussed, I solved this relationship problem (of orgone & consciousness) theoretically by postulating that orgone is a tripartite continuum of spirit, energy and matter properties.

Allowing that orgone has a primary aspect as a spirit-like field (physical, shared, lawful consciousness) would allow orgone to be reconciled with non-local phenomena such as ESP, telepathy, psychic phenomena, personal consciousness, perception beyond the material body and spirit entities. It would also explain how consciousness and orgone interrelate – at the primary unified level of a physical consciousness field. This relationship then expresses and develops at the secondary level of ‘energy’ and is then substantively embodied at the tertiary level of ‘matter’. All three of these phases are aspects of a single orgone continuum I believe. There is no need for a new term for orgone, just to drop the epithet ‘energy’ unless one is specifically referring to the secondary aspects of orgone.

2: Preliminary Evidence

Does the orgone that can be objectively measured possess non-local aspects? Yes, it almost certainly does I believe and there are initial phenomena that support this assertion. I started by exploring the relationship orgone and consciousness may have by using my imagination. I have then found that there are physical observations that support the relationships that seemed most logical to me. I will start with acupuncture.

Acupuncture

The Chinese traditionally believe a life-energy exists and that this energy is concentrated within channels of flow within the body. My MSc study and peer reviewed, published experimental studies indicated that the qi energy in acupuncture and orgone may be the same energy. It posited dozens of theoretical parallels and found that orgone has a real effect on acupuncture in a double blind, placebo controlled experiment with 72 participants (Traditional Chinese Medicine and Reichian Theory, European Journal of Oriental Medicine article).

In acupuncture it is a well known phenomenon that a point can be activated at one end of the channel by using the opposite end of the same channel or even a related channel. For example the face can be affected by needling a point on the same channel in the leg or foot. This also works from side to side - one can affect the right foot say by needling the left foot.

The qi energy in the channels often feels like it is ‘leaping’ from one point to another, intelligently. Someone may feel a pulsing at acupuncture point Heart 7 on the wrist and then all of a sudden the pulsing leaps to Liver 3 on the foot. This might also help explain how certain points such as Bladder 67 on the toe can have a documented effect on entirely unrelated areas of the body such as the uterus. Bladder 67 can be used to help turn a breach fetushttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14564112. One can also activate the points merely by thinking about them – demonstrating the conscious nature of qi.

Korean Hand Acupuncture has aspects which appear to be non-local too. It uses the 'holographic' or 'mirror' principle of Chinese medicine. This is the non-local principle that a part of the body can exactly mirror the whole of the body - like a part of a hologram mirrors the whole. The Koreans have given us a whole new set of points, a great rarity in such an ancient medicine. Every acupuncture point on the body is exactly mapped on the hand. Needling the hand point activates both the body point and the body channel. Perhaps because the hands require such a large portion of neurological function they are the best mirror or hologram that I have noted clinically. The other maps, such as on the ear, do not have the exactness or power of the hand maps in my experience. Needling even a single point on the hand can activate a whole body channel. I once needled a 'facial' point on the hand for acute toothache and all the face pain 'jumped' from the face into the hand point at once (which was extremely unpleasant for the person). I took the needle out after which the toothache returned to the face then gradually dissipated over about 10-20 minutes. This was an extreme case but generally I've found the Korean hand points to be more effective at relieving dental pain than the actual local face points. I believe Korean hand acupuncture, which is scientifically validated to have strong biological effects (see Koryo Hand Therapy by T. Yoo) works purely through the non-local aspects of qi or orgone.

Dr Tan (http://www.oxfordmedical.co.uk/uploaded_files/1038/downloads/article_rothenbg.pdf) is a very successful acupuncture practitioner. His clinical practise is studied across the West and relies on the non-local aspects of acupuncture. He has moved away from the herbal or substance-dominated Chinese medical theory in favour of the ancient energy-based channel theory of acupuncture (both theories are contained within Chinese Medicine). In order to relieve pain at one end of the channel system he will use an opposite end of the system rather than the local points. Or he'll use another channel completely and the opposite end of it to relieve pain in the viscinity of a different but related channel. His treatments are very well regarded for their speed and efficacy. They are popular with the growing Community Acupuncture movement for this reason.

Other Treatments

Reflexology also utilizes non-local effects I believe. Areas of stress in the body often show up as grittiness in the corresponding zone of the foot. Reflexology itself seems to have strong effects on the internal organs and may affect mental states such as depression (http://www.takingcharge.csh.umn.edu/explore-healing-practices/reflexology/what-does-research-say-about-refloxology)

Non-local Healing

Patients and even cell cultures can be affected by 'healing energy' sent from a practitioner's hands. However some healers can affect the object of their attention without even being in physical proximity, again demonstrating both the non-local aspect of qi/orgone and that it has a consciousness aspect to its functioning (Vibrational Medicine by R. Gerber).

There is another set of observations I have seen that also supports my contention that orgone has a non-local aspect. This experiment is found in modern day Mesmerism.

Mesmerism

Mesmerism is the forerunner of hypnotism. It uses more physical and bodily methods than are generally used within modern talk-based hypnotism. It is a very powerful method and has even been used in the past to perform thousands of operations without anaesthetic in Mesmeric hospitals in India, something that has been lost to the annals of 20th Century history. Mesmer believed in a life-energy and the force he postulated had much in common with Reich’s orgone. See here for a synopsis of the common ground between Mesmerism and Orgonomy, blog link.



Non-local Energy Fields In Mesmerism






The above illustration details a modern day Mesmeric experiment. I have seen this experiment performed successfully in England a number of times and have taken part in it as a participant. Both times I was impressed with the apparent objectivity of the results. I have been informed by the leading exponent of Mesmerism in the UK, Lee Gerrard-Barlow that he has seen this experiment conducted a dozen times or more in France, all with positive results.

To further emphasise the non-local connection between the two participants sometimes one of them is in another floor of the same building in a separate room (usually directly above the experimental area). Most often however, the participants are seated back to back as illustrated above.

In the above example the man on the left and the woman on the right are both put into a light trance using Mesmeric methods by the practitioner who is illustrated standing above. The following Mesmeric methods may be used to put the participants in a light trance: the practitioner’s visual focus (eye to eye contact with the patient), controlled breathing (of practitioner and patient) focusing of the patient’s eyes on an object, focus on an external light and ‘massage’ of the person’s energy aura.

Once the participants are in a light trance and sat in the chairs as above, the practitioner then directs energy, or strokes the energy field of one of the participants. In the illustration above, he directs or strokes the energy field of one arm of the woman. This may cause an unconscious auto-reaction in the second participant’s body. In this case, one of the man’s arms is rigidly raised upwards.

In summary, the practitioner directs or strokes the energy field of one of the participants. The other trance-connected participant, whether next to their partner or in another room may react unconsciously with automatic body movements in a corresponding part of their own body.

In the above example, once the man and woman are in a light trance they become one unit and the interactions of the practitioner with one participant are immediately reflected in the other. This may indicate a non-local life-force field governs both people and with which the practitioner is here interacting.

In my own experience of the experiment I found the automatic movements to be quite compulsive and not easily controlled consciously. It is not that I couldn’t stop the movements with effort but that I had no wish to either be in control or to direct my body consciously.

Overall Implications and Conclusion

A theoretical framework for understanding how orgone and consciousness may relate has been detailed (as a primary force-field that has the indistinguishable characteristics of physicality & consciousness). Evidence from Acupuncture, Mesmerism and Natural healing has been cited to support the non-locality of orgone (or life-force). This in turns indicates orgone may possess consciousness at its most basic level. If this indeed reflects reality there are a number of practical implications to be considered.

Firstly if the primary realm of orgone is a non-material, non-local, physical consciousness field this could give rise to any number of energetic and material dimensions. So other dimensions like our own could be possible or realms that are more energetic or spirit-like in nature. An entirely spiritual realm of existence could be possible too. It would also help bring to an end the Cartesian argument between reality being either mind-based (idealism) or matter-based (materialism). Duality would be superseded by a trinity of spirit-energy-matter, all three states being ultimately real at their particular level of experience. However, it would indicate that the spirit realm transcends the other two levels and is the most basic mother of the other two realities.

It would also imply that it is possible that matter could enter into or out of the material realm (tertiary level) and energetic realms (secondary level). So such science fiction favourites as warp drives should indeed be possible at least theoretically.

If the primary realm of orgone is non-local, in other words, universal, and conscious without restriction then such an entity would be close to what some have called, 'God'. This doesn't mean the Deistic notion of an all-powerful creator God necessarily. Perhaps the theistic, Gnostic, Buddhist or non-religious conceptions of an intelligent universe might suffice. Personally I have gone from being a devout atheist to becoming a spiritual but hopefully, scientific, theist. If the universe is one intelligent, physical entity why should it not also possess personal consciousness? Some assume that such a field as I am describing would be impersonal, but there is no reason to assume a field of physical consciousness would not possess a personality. The future of science may be an uncomfortable place for materialist atheists. I do not believe in a creator God as I do not believe it is proved that the universe has a beginning that would necessitate one (being sceptical of Big Bang theory). However I remain a theist as I believe that is the most coherent position scientifically.

The orgone continuum conception would also indicate the primacy of the 'spirit' in problem solving and all relations. Perhaps in order to change energetic and material reality it might be best to start at the primary level of spirit. It would support prayer as a fundamental activity. It would indicate in reverse that energetic and material aspects can be used to increase the quality of meditation and spiritual aspects of consciousness. I have noted that meditation is easier in groups or when having acupuncture. This is probably why we pray in groups and why watching sport in crowds is exciting.

The continuum theory would explain and harmonise non-local healing, consciousness and so called paranormal and spiritual phenomena with the existence of a life-force. It would also explain the placebo effect and the power of the mind in healing plus the existence of synchronicity. It would support the notion of groups or entities creating a group mind that is entirely distinct from its components. A consciousness could manifest in a body or group of bodies and matter and energy in turn could limit and define consciousness. It would caution us to the power, both good and bad, of group minds. It would also suggest that spiritual possession of another’s body could occur.

The primary realm of orgone, if instant and non-local implies that it is a realm of timelessness. Thus time may only exist in the energetic and material planes. It should be possible for consciousness to step outside of the stream of time by entering the primary realm. It would confirm time-travel as an activity of consciousness. Whether that means physical time travel is possible I do not know. I have experienced precognition in dreams and there is no means to explain such occurrences energetically.

The greatest interest of the orgone continuum theory for me is that it allows a basis to begin to experimentally investigate consciousness itself - not as abstract phenomena but as a physical force.

Conclusion

Orgone is not merely a theory - it is a physical force that can be measured and objectified. If this force turns out to have a tripartite reality the basis of which is a non-mass, physical and conscious force-field then we have the basis of a fertile marriage - a marriage of spirituality and science.

Part 2

Having explored that orgone may be a non-local universal force of consciousness at its most basic level, Part 2 of this series will likely be titled, ‘The Orgone Continuum, Is Orgone Conscious in Itself?’ and is my current working project.

The Orgone Motor


You can measure life-force in an apple, so why shouldn't you run a motor off it? (I couldn't find a picture of an orgone motor so this'll have to do, sorry! There was a film in existence of the original devices which I have the journal references see my Lit Review Number 375 or Journal of Orgonomy V11 N1 1977 pp28). http://leonsouthgate.com/reich-biblio.html 

I have since writing this found a film available on the net which shows working orgone motors at just past 18.30 minutes. Its a good general introductory film to orgonomy as well. https://archive.org/details/wilhelm_reich

I've noticed for some time now how most of the breakthrough energy/devices that are documented, work on the same, or similar principles. Although everyone seems to have a different theory for why they work, for me it all seems to boil down to tapping into the life-force. This makes me think that of the increasing number coming forward with claims of motor substantiation, that many may well be functional. The principle with all of them appears to be that a conventional power source builds a momentum and then the engine is switched to an 'ambient' source which then runs the engine without friction or heat and without more conventional 'energy' input needed. These devices are all taping into the life-force/energy field that exists below the world of matter I believe. That is perhaps why they behave similarly. Incidentally, Reich built a number of orgone motors and one may have gone to the USSR with a colleague of Reich's who disappeared (someone nicked it, but it could of been anyone I guess). Reich never disclosed the 'Y Factor' component of the orgone motor but I feel it might be related to the tauroidal shape function that has been mentioned in relation to these types of devices...

Breakthrough energy is the term used these days, here's one place to start researching it...http://globalbem.com

James Demeo has summarised the main information we have on the orgone motor in an article in Pulse of the Planet Journal Number 5 http://www.orgonelab.org/cart/xpulse.htm

The Correa's claimed to have reproduced the orgone motor in the late 1990s/early century but after initial enthusiasm failed to demonstrate it to Dr Demeo's satisfaction. I personally do not know enough about it to comment either way. Here is their website: http://www.aetherometry.com/

The following quotations are from my Reich Literature Review and represent what we know for sure about the Reich motor (A Cross-indexed Synopsis of the Main Post-Reich Journals from 1957). http://leonsouthgate.com/reich-biblio.html .The numbers refer to the Review Entry and the page number of the quoted article. See here for links to the full work:

28) 83

Court
Reich felt that due to reasons of national security some of his evidence could not be divulged to court (this is felt to relate at least partly to the orgone motor). He hinted that his assistant William Washington had disappeared probably to the USSR with two of Reich’s orgone motors.

52) 61

Reference to Vacor Tubes and the (undisclosed) Y Function in Reich’s court appeal. The information regarding the orgone motor in the appeal document is summarised as follows:
‘The motor forces were discovered through observing an orgone charged Geiger Muller counter, a number of orgone charged vacuum tubes are used, speed can be regulated and depends partly on the number of vacuum tubes, weather and the undisclosed ‘Y Function’.

The motor force can be transmitted through an activated electronic amplifier. A 32 scaler Geiger
Muller counter registered 200,000 impulses per minute during its use. (as witnessed by Dr Blasband).

54) 31

Reference to Mills and Orgone Motor (Peter Mills, an attorney had signed an affidavit regarding
Reich’s orgone motor. Mills was later coerced into prosecuting Reich in a strange legal choice of the
FDA).

59) 42

Reich said that the Cloudbuster and the Spacegun are like twin brothers to the Orgone motor. The
Orgone motor is the Common Functioning Principle of the two devices.
(Space-gun is a cloud-buster with some 'de-naturalised' orgone-treated radioactive material used to
ground it. This material is called ORUR (ORgone URanium). It can be dangerous to produce.

145) 103

Reich explains how the orgone motor’s functioning was arrived at through a years’ work simplifying the orgone reaction of the Gieger-Muller (GM) counter (changes in background count at the GM counter when orgone charged). It was a continual process of discarding extraneous aspects not adding unneeded ones like simply increasing voltages. (A Geiger Muller counts radioactive ‘pips’ giving the radioactive background levels of an environment).

341) 165

William Washington-July-August, 1949. Was being paid $100 monthly to investigate the orgone motor whilst at Harvard. He is said to have disappeared with 2 motors. He spoke to Reich and Sharaf on phone but was vague in manner but claimed he had been abducted into custody. FBI never replied to missing report.  He was never found.

375) 28

Film of orgone motor. 25v electric motor ran on 1/2v electricity, noiseless, fast, sudden changes in
direction, affected by weather. (Reich first discovered motor function through observing the reaction of Geiger Muller counter to orgone energy).

Set up

Vacor tubes x5 set up in series connected to a small ORAC and transformer all of which were connected to a 25v motor. Vacor tubes are vacuum tubes soaked in orgone for 6 weeks. They glow brilliant blue with 300v electrical current. Reich took away the vacor tubes one by one and the motor continued running. The motor when running on electricity runs noisy. On orgone power was smooth and noiseless plus much faster.

Orgone motor - charge may be able to transform into electrical impulse which in turn can be transformed into mechanical momentum. For example a high orgone charge in the vacor tube (excited by electricity) can be transformed into electrical impulse via the discharge process. This electrical impulse can then be transformed into mechanical work.

Static electricity would also represent mechanical impulse or friction being converted into charge.

Reich, in his court address said that all disease originates from DOR. Removing DOR from organism and environment is fighting disease at its roots. Reich also mentions 'positive gravity' 'counter gravity' and that the space-gun and cloudbuster are twin brothers.


The space-gun and cloudbuster are the variations and the orgone motor is the CFP (mentioned elsewhere). (My note - CFP is the Common Functioning Principle, a kind of material dialecticism in reverse! Instead of two opposing functions synthesising into a third new function - dialeticism which goes toward a future state, in Reich's CFP you go backwards from two opposite functions to find their common principle, a process which goes backwards toward the past and which reveals the root functioning.)

Consciousness or Spirit?

Consciousness or Spirit?



(This essay can be read on its own but will make more sense if read following the background work on a life-force conception of consciousness in my essays section here..www.leonsouthgate.com).

Common definitions of consciousness include aspects of perception, awareness, cognition, thoughts, self-awareness and so on. As with the view of the perceiving self as the ‘ghost’ in the ‘machine’ of the body, consciousness is seen as something that can have a separate existence to the body or more widely speaking, to the environment. However, in the last essay in this series I explored how the physical universe can be seen in three levels – Level 3 – the digital, material existence of matter which is transcended by Level 2 – the analogue, energetic existence of life-energy which in turn is transcended by Level 1 – the physical but timeless, energy-less, conscious existence of a spirit-force. We argued that as all three levels intercommunicate they must fundamentally be of the same essence. Further, as Level 3 depends on Level 2 and Level 2 on Level 1 the ultimate nature, or reality of things is described by Level 1 phenomena – a spirit-force. (However, I still view Level 1 and 2 as real but in a different, more casual sense).

I define ‘spirit’ somewhat differently than some might – seeing an infinite force-field that is physical but not made of matter. In fact I also define consciousness as physical (but again not necessarily material) because consciousness cannot exist without a ‘body’. Let’s say a person has shuffled off his mortal coil and has no material body. This person, it would not be unreasonable to surmise might still have awareness of their own perceiving self (near-death and reincarnation studies would support this view, see 'The Field' for good synopsis). Let us just say that this person is completely free of any environment of which to perceive, if this person still exists it would have some awareness of itself, however dim. So this materially disembodied point-of-perception senses to some degree its own perceiving self. These perceptions have a degree of lawfulness and continuity because of the continuity of the perceiving self. Therefore even an entity alone, without a material body would create a ‘body’ of some sort due merely to its own existence. Therefore pure 'consciousness' cannot exist separate from a body. It follows that the two existences, body and consciousness are in fact the same thing. A conscious body is another way of saying a physical ‘spirit’ or as I prefer to call it a ‘spirit-force’ or ‘life-force’ (the latter term I define a little more exactly as a physical, conscious spirit which can give rise to life-energy which in turn gives rise to matter and living matter). The upshot of this is it is meaningless to talk about consciousness as if it exists separate to ‘body’ (I define body in the wider sense as an environment). So the further implication is that ‘pure’ consciousness is, as has been argued by many, impossible to define or talk usefully about. This is because it is an incomplete definition (as are perhaps all definitions but that is another argument). Anyway, a spirit-force is I believe a useful description. It is testable, allowing of scientific investigation and conforms to what we experience in the real world, especially now that materialism is widely discredited.

There are many examples that indicate we need a new paradigm. We have evidence that consciousness directly affects the material world (Random Event Generation, Quantum phenomena, Psi-Studies and so on) but we also know that the dualistic ‘Ghost’ (mind) driving the ‘Machine’ (body) is unworkable as what can possibly connect the two? (We are either all ‘Ghost’ or all ‘Machine’). But this model explains what we actually experience and feel to be true. Sometimes when the ‘mind’ (Level 1 phenomena) is overt enough we can see it directly affects matter (Level 3 phenomena). Or in other words, ‘mind’ (Level 1) is so strong it has bypassed the Level 2 phenomena of energetic interactions to directly move matter or Level 3 phenomena. So this would explain the miraculous cures, the shamans who appear to move matter with their minds and the placebo effect. It would also explain why we can’t all do it consistently at the present (it’s hard for Level 1 phenomena to break through directly into Level 3 phenomena). This model would also explain why when more people gather together (higher levels of Level 2 phenomena – energy/life-energy) there is in turn ‘higher’ levels of ‘consciousness’ (Level 1 phenomena). Level 2 phenomena (energy/life-energy) enables closer interaction with the spirit/consciousness that lies directly below it. Examples of this can be found when a group meditates or prays together, in energetically aligned buildings, when strong emotions ripple through a football crowd, or when world events take a REG machine out of random computation.
So to conclude, it appears that there is no such thing as a pure disembodied consciousness but that there is ultimately only a physical spirit-force and its temporary variants, energy and matter. The reason I believe this is important is scientific. The possible existence of a conscious spirit-force can be directly investigated.

(The above picture by Henri Rousseau, my favourite artist, captures some of the identity of spirit and body. Incidentally, not sure if it is just me but not many people have noticed that there are the 'ghosts' of faces in the water jug on the right hand side of the picture-its not easy to see them).

Mesmer, Reich and Mechanical-ness

In my recent reading I came across a new compound word. I like 'mechanical-ness' very much as a verb. Sometimes you see a person who is caught up in the system and you can predict their behaviour because they are following a programme. I like the word because it conveys both Mesmer and Reich's ideas on armouring. I also think a description I've heard of a 'computerised' society is very accurate. See here for further articles. This got me thinking about an observation I've made - every successful holistic practitioner appears to share something in common: they do a good deal of meditational work every day. Which is putting them in touch with 'presence', (in Mesmerism) or the 'force' (in Star Wars!) or being 'in contact' (Reich). The Mesmeric idea of presence, or Reich's conception of 'contact' is indeed at the foundation of successful medicine. Perhaps this is why no particular psychotherapy has ever come out on top - because it is the 'contactfulness' of the practitioner that is key rather than their theoretical background perhaps. On that note, I also must remark that sometimes orgone psychotherapists might consider that dearmouring is a continual lifelong process, especially in a society as armoured as our own. So even if a practitioner has done a deep and thorough dearmouring on themselves over the years they might still need to dearmour segments, every day even. This latter issue is something which Yoga emphasises well. Practically speaking there is much in common between yogic movement and breath work and the physical side of orgone psychotherapy. But before any orgonomic purists get upset let me point out that orgonomy emphasises the sexual stuckness and that I am not advocating a fusion of the two practices. Some pictures to illustrate mechanical-ness and the computerised society....

Reich and Mesmer - Orgonomy Journal Notes

Been looking through my Reich bibliography and rereading the articles on Mesmer and Reich. As the journals are not that easy to get hold of I thought I would post some notes here...

Numbered Notes from my Reich Biblio on Mesmer and Reich, see here for full Biblio:

35)

Other devices using ORAC (orgone accumulator) type layering:-

·         Atomic Piles (carbon/uranium)
·         Leydon Jars (glass/metal)
·         Mesmer's Baquet (charged water/stones/metal)

See also Demeo's notes on celestial influences upon above devices.

36)

Author notes that Mesmer, who discovered many aspects of life energy, was also awareof muscular armouring.

37)

Mesmer’s human dor-buster (healing hand-passes with one foot in a water-bucket, transforming the healer’s body into an ‘orgone’ conduit similar to Reich’s medical dor-buster). A DOR-buster is a tube device grounded into flowing water for removing negative orgone from an organism.

38)

Attack on animal magnetism in France was very similar to that on orgonomy (although that was in a later century and in the USA).

  • There was a refusal to honestly examine the evidence (Mesmer pleaded for a commission). (The FDA’s examination of Reich’s work was profoundly dishonest and unscientific).

  • Mesmer himself was excluded from any ‘investigations’. (Reich was also excluded from the FDA ‘investigations’ and the FDA scientists did not read his work or try and repeat his experiments).

  • Attacks on Mesmer were initiated by someone posing as a friend. (The attack on Reich was initiated by a journalist posing as friendly toward orgonomy).

  • Quack official investigation followed which simply pronounced animal magnetism doesn’t exist. (The FDA simply pronounced orgone doesn’t exist without honest scientific proof and without repeating his actual experiments).

  • Enormous effort was expended denouncing animal magnetism world-wide (very expensive printed report circulated widely. (The FDA spent the majority of its budget for part of the 1950s persecuting one doctor and to destroy just 300 orgone boxes).

1020)

Mesmer's 'bacquet' was a large wooden tub in which bottles fillled with water or iron fillings were placed. The water had been 'magnetised' or healed. Attached to the bottles were metallic rods and flexible cords which were held by the persons surrounding the bacquet. Their free hand would be connected to each other. Thus the bacquet transmitted energy and connected energy at the same time using metal's ability to transmit life-energy. It has aspects of both the Medical Dorbuster and the ORAC (ORAC is short for Orgone Accumulator Cabinet).

Both men began by examining biological functions and electricity/magnetism but concluded that there was an additional force to electromagnetism at work in organisms and the environment. Mesmer's work has the following in common with the orgonomic view -

 A universal fluid can be intensified and it;

Ÿ  Fills all space
Ÿ  Penetrates all matter
Ÿ  Can be stored or conducted
Ÿ  Is associated with the nervous system
Ÿ  Mesmer’s bacquet can be charged with the universal fluid (Reich’s ORAC does the same).
Ÿ  A loss of muscular irritablity (Mesmer) is similar to muscle armouring (Reich)
Ÿ  Sudden release of this muscular holding and energy blockage (irritability/armouring) leads to profound crisis and then healing (and can need management due to possible medical crisis).
Ÿ  Health is wholeness.
Ÿ  Both views argue for the unhindered development of children

Some specific quotes:

‘Emotional Plague v. Animal Magnetism’, Jerome Eden (1967) Journal of Orgonomy Vol1 Num1&2 pp172)

From pp175:

“Grounded as he was in his postulation of a universal fluid, Mesmer considered every disease process to be nothing more than a disturbance or disequilibrium of the universal fluid of the body. In searching for the cause of this disequilibrium, he arrived at the conclusion that it was always the muscular fibre which, being either chronically contracted or expanded (or because of its inability to expand or contract at all), impeded the normal flow of the universal fluid. Mesmer therefore sought for the means whereby 1) the patient’s universal fluid might be increased sufficiently so that it could ‘overthrow the cause of the malady,’ or 2) the impeding muscular fibre might be restored to its normal condition of elasticity.”

From pp178:

“In order to accommodate the scores of patients who flocked daily to his clinic, Mesmer invented a simple structure for ‘accumulating’ the universal fluid and applying it directly to several patients simultaneously. He called this device a ‘baquet’ or tub. Essentially, it consisted of a large, covered wooden tub filled with glass bottles. In the ‘wet’ baquet,’ the bottles were filled with water and iron filings. Small iron rods protruded through the cork of each bottle. These small iron rods were connected by larger, flexible iron rods that emerged through holes in the lid of the baquet. The flexible rods were held by the encircling patients. Also, in the wet baquet, water and iron filings were added to the tub itself. In the ‘dry baquet,’ sand and iron filings were used. Individual baquets, or ‘magnetic boxes,’ were constructed for patients who were not ambulatory.

Those familiar with Wilhelm Reich’s discovery of orgone energy and his invention of the orgone energy accumulator and the DOR—buster can readily understand the basic similarities here.”

From pp180: The quack ‘investigation’ of Mesmer:-

“Twenty thousand copies of this voluminous report were printed and distributed throughout the world. (This in the days of hand typesetting and hand press demonstrates the incredible effort employed to obliterate a ‘non-existent’ discovery.) At the same time, however, a secret report was drawn up by the commission and presented to Louis XVI-its subject; the dangerous moral aspects of animal magnetism.”

‘Mesmer, Reich and the Living Process’, Marc Shapiro (1965) The Creative Process, Vol4, Num2.

From pp64:

‘The great common discovery underlying the work of Mesmer and Reich is PULSATION. Pulsation is the main action (called intensification and remission by Mesmer, expansion and contraction by Reich) of what Mesmer called the ‘Universal Fluid.’ This Universal Fluid, like Reich’s orgone energy, filled all space and was the agency of all movement.’

From pp65:

‘This question brings us to the most remarkable and significant relation of Mesmer’s work to Reich’s, for Mesmer discovered muscular armouring.’

‘This could be seen in breathing which Mesmer called the ‘universal expression’ of the Fluid.’

‘However, Mesmer not only passed his hands over the body; he actually pressed the chronically disturbed muscles in order to bring them back to irritability.’ (My note: this is the same process as in the physical side of orgone psychotherapy: pressing on the stuck muscle whilst breathing).

From pp66:

‘The muscular spasms, the strange sensations of movement within the organism, the trembling and the convulsive movements are all typical effects observed within orgone therapy. It goes without saying that this is not all of what happens in orgone therapy – but neither, I believe, does it fully describe Mesmer’s treatment. Mesmer describes people sitting around the famous bacquet having sudden outbreaks of laughter, anger or weeping. From the descriptions of Mesmer by his contempories, from his writings and from his general attitude toward life as shown in these writings, I feel he had a strong sense of contact with the patients he was treating, a sense of his own moving energy mingling with theirs.’

From pp67:

‘Mesmer and Reich both believed that the functions of the living organism were the expression of a cosmic process. Mesmer stated what amounts to an early view of self-regulation.’ (My note: Reich believed that healthy children were not truly known in our armoured, sick society but that we should attempt to study what health in childhood constitutes and that children should be free to express themselves safely without undue interference from adults, apart from loving care. Mesmer believed children should be ‘unimpeded’ and would naturally find his own ‘development and instruction’ if given freedom to express movement. Like Reich he believed children should be surrounded by children of their own age without overt adult interference and that infants should be immersed in the contact of their mothers. Both believed education should follow natural principles and follow the child. Mesmer believed children should not be taught words till later in childhood (6 or 7) according to this article.

Article also notes that both men believed that the true perception of the universal force was often hidden within distortions of mysticism and religion but not that these things are in themselves untrue. Reich would say that ‘everyone is right in some way’.

From pp69:

4. Health is Wholeness

5. Self-regulation

An extra note that has just reminded itself to me is the following: both Mesmer and Reich used iron or iron-based metal to attract the 'force' and water to 'ground' it. Also Oriental medicine uses iron-based metal (steel needles) to attract or disperse qi. It is not a coincidence because it is simply the same 'force' functioning in similar ways...

Micro-chloridians (or microchloridians) and Bions...in search of the 'real thing'

I have talked about Star Wars and George Lucas having inside information and the connections between Reich, Mesmer, actual life-force and what George Lucas says. I was just watching Lego Star wars and found the proper name of the biological entity in Star Wars - midi-chlorians - they are exactly the same thing as Reich's bions only they have been given a 'mass consciousness' in the film, which is quite possible in my view. Reich discovered orgone through watching and measuring the life-force field given off by bions. They are about 2-8 microns in size, usually a blue spherical shape and have a strong force-field unless there is illness. They are the link between non-life and life. Here is a link from 'wookiepedia' and then a link for the 'real' thing, the first picture is from Star Wars, the second is the 'real' bion....http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Midi-chlorian

Darwinism, Another Fairy-Tale?

Darwin said, ‘Natura non facit saltum’ : nature takes no leaps. Except it does….

Problems with Darwinism and gradual evolution:     

1. Primordial Soup: The actual chemical content of the ‘primordial soup’ as currently considered could not have given birth even to amino acids (contrary to earlier experiments which used the wrong chemicals apparently) let alone a fully-fledged cell, which is a bit like a Concorde happening by accident. To randomly produce a protein molecule or the gene to produce it would be a probabilistic impossibility (one chance in 10 with a 125 zeros after it).

2. Cambrian Explosion: we had jellyfish, sponges and worms for billions of years and then ‘boom’ virtually all the ‘families’ of animals (phyla) appeared suddenly in the fossil record fully formed. Darwin admitted that the Cambrian explosion went against his theory but felt confident future discoveries would vindicate him. They haven’t. Darwin remains unvindicated yet this does not bother the mainstream. This situation alone is enough to disprove gradual evolution according to Darwin himself. There is also no experimental evidence to support the view that there were gradual changes within the genetics structure which took place but then expressed themselves suddenly – why would natural selection or gradual evolution affect a process in the DNA that had no visible effects for billions of years? The hidden genetics hypothesis is completely unsubstantiated experimentally. Clutching at straws comes to mind.

3. Embryology: Darwin claimed that because early embryo’s look similar this is evidence of common ancestry. However the early embryo diagrams by Haeckel were doctored (this was known in 1860 yet the diagrams were still being used in 1990s!).  Most embryos are not similar in their early stages.

4. Homology: similar features in different animals. The developmental pathway theory of evolution (tree of life) and common gene pathways theory have both failed experimentally (for example genes for  the eyes can be swapped between frogs and flies yet still the right eye for each animal develops). Developmental pathway and gene pathway theories cannot therefore be used to validate Darwinism. Homology itself is not proof of Darwinism as it can also be used to argue for Intelligent Design.

5. ‘Gills’ in non-fish mammal embryos: could be just neck creases in the womb.

6. Missing Links: The archeopertyx is simply an extinct bird, it is not a missing link as it was from the wrong era to link reptiles and birds. There are little or no ‘missing links’. We are supposed to accept on faith that birds descended from dinosaurs but this is not proved. If Darwinism was correct the fossil record should be jammed packed with ‘missing links’ and intermediate forms. It is not. Therefore gradual evolution from species to species is not supported (macro-evolution). Micro-evolution, (changes within a species), is generally agreed as we can all see it happen. (Update - I recently read about how the gradualism of our own evolution does not stack up either. Our nearest hominid pre-human, is dozens of 'missing links' away from us. What are described as 'pre-human' are essentially upright apes. The difference between them and modern man is an immense leap of massive changes in bone density, skeleton and skull shape. Gradualism does not explain this process. The changes between Neanderthal and modern human are equally massive and sudden. Our matriarchal DNA also indicates we are a very young species - the exact opposite of what Darwin's theories would predict if we 'gradually' emerged).

7. Java Man: Half-ape/half-man from 1891 was a ‘skullcap, a femur, three teeth and a lot of imagination’.

8. Irreducibly Complex Systems: there are many biological systems such as bacterial flagella (complex tail propellers with ingenious super-powered micro-engines) which cannot be reduced to simpler systems. If you take one part away from the complex whole it no longer functions. Most scientists are at a loss to describe how gradual selection can create irreducibly complex systems, of which there are many.

9. The cell itself is so complex that many leading biologists have all but given up the ‘chance’ hypothesis. Many scientists now side with intelligent design, often changing their position from a previously held view of gradualist evolution as such a view is not compatible with the evidence.

10. Molecules: How can gradual evolution work at the molecular level where there is no organism to be affected by natural selection? Darwinism fails to explain how non-life can organise to produce life.

11. DNA: There is no known chemical or physical process which would bring the first DNA or RNA sequence together into formation. The power to do so would need to come from outside the molecule itself. (Life-force may be capable of doing this but life-force is not known to most scientists of either intelligent design, evolutionist or creationist persuasions).

12. Self-organising processes known to mainstream science produce mechanical order, such as repetitive sequences of crystals but life itself is a different kind of order (an irregular complexity capable of producing new information). However life-force sciences observe that irregular complexity does spontaneously arise in the form of the life-vesicle termed the bion by Reich or other pre-cellular forms discovered by others. The proto-cellular form bions can be created by cooking organic matter at high temperature. They display life-like characteristics though they are much less complex than a cell. Here are bions emerging from a super-sterile, autoclaved hay infusion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXickkE3aDU

Here are some quotes from molecular biologists such as Dr Wells:

‘Darwinism is merely materialist philosophy masquerading as science'

‘Darwinian evolution is bankrupt.’

The above notes were taken from or were inspired by Lee Stroebel's book 'Case for a Creator', the chapter on Darwinism, a very enjoyable account of a journalist's investigation of the mainstream scientific evidence for a creator. My own views differ quite a bit from Strobel's because he is not aware of life-force, which changes the ball game once again. A good book too which pulls apart the 'religion' of modern blind science is this by the scientist who has worked on the 'morphic field' theory, Dr Sheldrake, The Science Delusion

Also, in politics it should be remembered, Darwinism is absolutely fascist. No single theory has done more to philosophically support fascism in both economics and sociology than Charlie's contribution. Think Eugenics, think Rockefellers, think Nazism, think mechanical biology - all rely on Darwin's theories as background support and validation. The strong crush the weak, there is no spiritual higher powers, everything has a mechanical cause, there is only mechanics and anything approaching a God or a spiritual perspective is redundant.
