Assessing the Existence of Deep Artificial Intelligence from an Orgonomic Perspective

Assessing the Existence of Deep Artificial Intelligence from an Orgonomic Perspective

            Editor’s Note: The following article is an interesting, thought provoking and intellectually challenging essay. The author, Leon Southgate, MSc, describes the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) and its’ approximation to the living organism with a consciousness and, perhaps feelings. However, it is our opinion that life energy, orgone energy, […]

Possible Environmental and Shamanic Effects of Oranur

Possible Environmental and Shamanic Effects of Oranur

Background & Synposis Southgate’s previous work explored the relationship of orgone to consciousness. This was firstly from a theoretical perspective (1). Later, given that conscious beings generally have higher orgone charges, Southgate felt that repeating Reich’s Oranur* Experiment was required. A practical examination of the Oranur Experiment, using a scaled down version of Reich’s work, […]

A Preliminary Investigation into a Prototype Device Based Upon Reich’s Spacegun

A Preliminary Investigation into a Prototype Device Based Upon Reich’s Spacegun

Introduction and Background In the autumn of 2017 the author repeated Reich’s oranur experiment but with 1000th of the radioactivity, although using a similarly high orgone charge (1). The results in terms of various physical parameters, from possible small electrical, magnetic and visual effects have been detailed in a number of papers (2). This work […]

Oranur and it’s Possible Applications in Artificial Intelligence

Oranur and it’s Possible Applications in Artificial Intelligence

Introduction and Background The author's father, John Southgate was a pioneering attachment-based London psychoanalyst who had used Reich's dynamics within his early group-work, to help understand creative group processes (1). The author was familiar, through his father, with orgonomy from an early age. There was a family orgone blanket, which is remembered as having a […]

The Orgone Continuum

The Orgone Continuum

A New Ontology of Ideo-Physicalism Leon Southgate MSc, 2018. Synopsis The orgone continuum, a life-force theory of consciousness, is reassessed from an ontological perspective (as a theory of ‘being’) and the question asked, is it really a pan-psychic theory? The question is explored and then a new classification of the orgone continuum is proposed. This […]

Preliminary Experiments with Electrical Capacitance, Temperature, Radioactivity, Luminesence and Other Observations associated with Controlled Oranur in a Strong Orgone Device

Preliminary Experiments with Electrical Capacitance, Temperature, Radioactivity, Luminesence and Other Observations associated with Controlled Oranur in a Strong Orgone Device Leon Southgate MSc Synopsis A strong orgone device was activated with a controlled dosage of a very small amount of radioactive material. Electrical capacitance and other effects were examined. Possible anomalous occurrences are noted in […]

A HYBRID IN-PERSON/ONLINE CONFERENCE – AUGUST 2 TO 5, 2022

The Living Body: Wilhelm Reich’s Influence on Contemporary Psychotherapies

 

In pursuing the development of psychosomatic medicine and an energetic model of health which respected the importance of psyche and soma equally, Wilhelm Reich created the foundation for what ultimately came to be known as the fields of Body Psychotherapy, Somatic Psychology and others.

Building upon the conference we presented in the summer of 2021, Wilhelm Reich and Psychoanalysis, the goal of this conference is to map the field of body-centered therapy today. Speakers from the Americas, Europe and Australia, representing Reich’s Orgone Therapy as well as a variety of schools which are heirs to Reich such as Radix, Bioenergetics, Biodynamic Therapy, Biosynthesis, Gestalt, Navarro, Core Energetics and other modalities based in important ways on his approach, will present and describe their respective theories, training processes and therapeutic methods.

Historians will present an overview of Reich’s evolution from psychoanalysis to character analysis, to the more body-centered character analytic vegetotherapy, and beyond.

By exploring this field through the common denominator, the theories and techniques developed by Wilhelm Reich, we hope to generate interaction and exchanges and highlight the similarities, differences and relationships between traditions.

With so many schools of therapy represented, there are bound to be some differences of opinion about theory and practice. By bringing them together, we hope to give participants a comprehensive overview of the field and build bridges between individuals and groups who have much in common and might benefit from direct, respectful interaction with one another.
