Orgone is etheric energy. It’s another name for the energy that is everywhere and embodies all things. Reiki energy, Prana, bio/electro-magnetic energy, and life force energy are all Orgone energy. The origin of Orgone energy study begins with the Austrian doctor of medicine and psychoanalyst, Dr. Wilhelm Reich, who was a student of Dr. Sigmund Freud. Dr. Reich thought that the libido essentially was a physical manifestation of bioenergy that could be harnessed and measured. He viewed it as a life-affirming and life-flowing force. He explored the connection between energy in the environment and Bioenergetics the study of energy flow through living systems. Reich argued that deficits or constrictions in bodily Orgone were at the root of many diseases, and could produce neuroses as defined in Freudian theory. Reich founded the Orgone Institute c. 1942 to pursue research into Orgone energy after he immigrated to the US in 1939, and used it to publish literature and distribute material relating to the topic for more than a decade. In the 1930s and 40s, Dr. Reich developed tools to detect and measure the existence of Orgone, measured using a modified Geiger counter.
In 1986, scientists at the University of Marburg in Germany published the results of a blind study which showed that 30-minute Orgone Accumulator treatments caused a consistent psychological effect. They published that their investigations displayed evidence for the assumption that the properties of Orgone Accumulators and its effect on humans exist and can be measured. There are also Orgone-irritating devices which disturb electro-magnetic fields such as fluorescent lights, television sets, microwave ovens, X-ray machines, and other devices containing radioactive. Radio broadcast towers, airport radars, and microwave telephone communications towers may also constitute hazards. It could either be in a life-beneficial positive form (Positive Orgone Energy), a harmful negative etheric energy form (Deadly Orgone Energy), or just plain neutral Orgone Energy. Dr. Reich labeled the positive energy POR and the negative energy DOR. He studied DOR within the larger environment and noted that areas where microwaves can be detected, DOR has an atmospheric expression as well, and when sufficiently widespread, is associated with altered atmospheric conditions, altered cloud formations, drought or desert conditions.
