Life Force: Good and Bad Energy #4, Orgone

Life Force: Good and Bad Energy #4, Orgone

Orgone accumulator is a device invented by Wilhelm Reich to detect orgone energy and to prove its exitence. The orgone accumulator will make a mercury thermometer suspended on top of it measure hotter temperature than its surrounding. It is believe that hotter temperature above the device is the sign of the existence of orgone. The orgone accumulattor is also once presented in front of Albert Einstein during a visit from Wilhelm Reich.

Orgone accumulator is used mostly for healing device today. As healing device, the effect of the device to people health has confirmed by many. It is usually done by putting part or the whole of the body inside an orgone accumulator. The process should never be done more than 30 minutes since it said to be detrimental to health instead.

Many people build it with various construction method with many advance in technique. However, it is unfortunate that replication of anomalous heat experiment is rarely done or published. Sucessful replication is even rarer.

Two reseacher have reported success in replicating orgone accumulator experiment. The first researcher is James Demeo commonly known for his rain making with cloud buster. The second researcher are husband and wife, Paulo and Alexandra Correa. From the information posted on both researchers website, orgone is said to be influenced by the sun. The relationship of orgone energy with the sun is the same as the relationship of odyle with the sun. And thus here is an atempt to explain the phenomena of orgone accumulator with odyle.

The construction of Orgone accumulator

According to Reich-Einstein experiments: “On January 13, 1941, Reich visited Einstein in Princeton. They talked for 5 hours, and Einstein agreed to test the apparatus that Reich would supply, an “orgone accumulator”, a box made up of a Faraday cage (galvanized steel) insulated by wood and paper on the outside. Einstein performed the experiment which involved taking the temperatures atop and near the device. Einstein also stripped the device down to its Faraday cage. In both cases, Einstein observed a positive temperature difference for a week in his study, and confirmed Reich’s finding in a published letter.

The original experiment that Reich and Einstein conducted has a simplicity that deserves to be noted. It simply compared a suspended thermometer with a thermometer placed above a galvanized steel box that was tested with and without poor insulation (that is, one that should also readily permit in principle thermal equalization given a suitable amount of time). The height of the thermometers was the same. The control thermometer was also suspended over the table, on which the metallic box was placed.

According to James Demeo: “MAXIMAL ACCUMULATOR APPROACH: This approach is more taxing for the experimenter, but potentially more fruitful. Here, one constructs a single-layered or multi-layered orgone accumulator out of materials known to yield a strong charge: wool and steel wool layers, with interior steel chamber (no aluminum). One starts by making a small but strong orgone accumulator. The control enclosure is then constructed with sufficient size and mass to give it mechanical thermal properties close to that of the accumulator — this is determined empirically, by closely monitoring temperatures while simultaneously subjecting both control and accumulator to strong mechanical thermal influences (direct exposure to sunlight, or a heat lamp, followed shortly afterward by quick shading or immersion in an ice-water bath). One then adds or removes insulating material to the control (including some thin sheets of insulating material, to mimic the metal sheeting in the accumulator) until the mechanical thermal responses of the accumulator and control to thermal forcing are nearly identical.

ACCUMULATOR-CONTROL INTERACTION: Regarding the above techniques, both the accumulator and control must be separated by a certain distance, around 10 cm minimum, to prevent any kind of energetic interaction between the orgone accumulator and control. The accumulator and control must additionally not be enclosed within another structure with accumulating properties.

According to Paulo and Alexandra Correa: “METHODS AND MATERIALS The infrastructure of the main “medical ORAC” used in the present studies was made of knotted pine wood, finished on the outside with two coats of shellac. Other ORACs were made of other select dense woods (birch and mahogany), and also coated with varnish. No pigments, paints or stains were used. The ORAC contained no ferromagnetic screws on the outside, and the metal hinges were made of bronze. Subsequent ORACs built by us employed no metal screws on the outside or metal hinges, only polymer screws and hinges, and wood dowels. The thermal and electric insulation consisted of slag-free rockwool made up of basalt and glass fibers in coated mats, 1/4 inch thick, cut to panel size and layered alternatingly with steel wool (grade #1). The panels were enclosed for fiber safety. All counted, the cabinet was formed as a 5x double-layer including the inner Faraday cage (as Reich counted the layers one by one, by his method this constitutes a 10-ply ORAC). The latter was built of 1.8 mm G-90 galvanized steel, Stelco colourbound finish. The reasons for this have been expounded both by Reich [5] (who explicitly considered aluminum and copper as dangerous to the health when employed in “medical ORACs”) and by us elsewhere [8, 19], following our experimental demonstration that ferromagnetic cages or plates exposed to experimentally controlled ambipolar radiation can induce arrest of the electroscopic leakage, whereas copper, aluminum and other tested metals do not [8]. Other improvements related in essence to the fact that a layer of zinc of a certain thickness deposited on the surface of a ferromagnetic cage optimizes the ambipolar attenuation needed for its absorption by atmospheric oxygen on the inside of the cage, and that a certain type of finish is most efficient at minimizing local photon production (the blackbody component of sensible heat). The whole structure could be easily assembled and disassembled for easy transport.

Odyle explanation Baron Karl Von Reichenbach propose a theory explain the existance of natural energy that is neither electric, nor magnetic. He define the energy is odyle. Odyle exist everywhere in nature and play important role in health. Odyle has a duality, there is od-positive and od-negative. Object may emit only one of them or both. Od-negative has the effect of mostly cold and give bluish aura, while od-positive has the effect of mostly hot and give reddish / yellowish aura.

Odyle permeate all things. A solid object, a continuous piece of matter conduct odyle. Matter like silk and glass conduct it, however metal is especially good at conducting odyle that it defined to be more than just conducting. A woven, perforatous, an unconnected piece of matter prevent conduction of odyle. Matter like cotton, paper, wood, or powder will prevent conduction of odyle in a short time.

We see the connecion of properties of matter in odyle and in orgone. Orgone accumulator is build as a box with od-conducting material enclosed with non od-conducting material. The choice of orgone accumulator material is relevant with the material properties relate to odyle. The non od-conducting material of wool or wood or paper at the outer layer prevent the collected energy from escaping the box. While the od-conducting material of ferro-magnetic metal in inner layer attract the ouside energy.

In odyle, heavy metal and ferromagnetic metal has high properties of od-positive. When this kind of material is exposed to sensitive peoples, they would felt lukewarm and tingle. Longer exposure will cause uneasyness, more energetic feel. Prolonged exposure however, may cause inadvertent effect of headache or even cramp. People’s limb can be warm with the presence of very high od-positive source.

The observed effect of positive-od is also confirmed on orgone accumulator. From the research of Paulo and Alexandra Correa: “RESULTS 1. Subjective sensations on exposure to a “medical ORAC” Most human subjects that expose themselves to a properly built ORAC (no copper or aluminum metal parts, no ferromagnetic or other metallic elements on the outer structure, an optimal ferromagnetic and continuous inner cage, an effective thermal insulator with dielectric properties) note a variety of perceptible sensations after some minutes of exposure: tingling on the extremities of limbs or fingers, warmth on the back and palm of hands at 4-8 cm from the walls, heat sensation all over the body and, frequently, sweating after 5 to 15 minutes. Yet, the inside walls of an ORAC cabinet feel cold to the touch (in fact, their temperature is frequently below ambient; see below). Reich also reported skin tanning with prolonged exposure.

It is interesting to see how orgone behaviour closely resemblance odyle. However, it is unfortunate that there is no attempt from orgone scientist to join orgone and odyle together or at least to confirm the similarity or the difference.
