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 definite effect on the dreaming process as a child, and access to the orgonomic literature. Peter Reich's, "A Book of Dreams" made a particular impression on the author as a teen (2).

This connection to orgonomy was rekindled in 2000 when there was an opportunity to undertake a Master's degree in acupuncture. The author examined the relationship of Reichian and Chinese medicine (3). He then examined orgone's relationship to the Qi energy of Chinese medicine both practically and theoretically. The paper detailed a statistically significant effect of orgone upon acupuncture in a randomised, controlled study of 72 volunteers and also found 60 new theoretical parallels. This led to a life-long interest in orgone research.

A few years later the author started a PhD examining orgonomy broadly, although concentrating on the biophysical aspects. This was in a Manchester University. However at this stage the author's mature interest within orgonomy was not as yet clear. Additionally, the university did not offer support of the biological laboratory work the author wished to undertake. This project was therefore put on hold, although a useful book eventually came out of the first year's study, a cross-referenced annotated bibliography, summarising all the main papers within orgonomy since Reich's death in 1957. It concentrated on the biophysical papers though it comments on all aspects of Reich's work (4).

Over the next decade an interest in orgone's relationship to consciousness gradually emerged and then became all-consuming. It became apparent that this was the unfinished business of orgonomy. The acorns that Reich planted within Character Analysis and within his biophysical work with cloudbusters, orgone accumulators, and recently even the electrical and motor functions of orgone have all to some extent been replicated or at least followed up (5). The wealth of Reich's work is still largely unknown to the general public but it has resulted in surprisingly hardy saplings within certain small research communities. However, the relationship between orgone and consciousness still remained utterly obscure.

The theories Reich proposed for the existence of consciousness, in his publically available books, did not succeed in providing even a stop-gap theory in this author's view. Reich's own "middle period" view of consciousness, an early pre-runner of systems theories, had a materialist explanation that ultimately failed to describe the relationship, as Southgate argues here (6). Reich had maintained that orgone was non-conscious in its cosmic state but then became conscious when enclosed by matter. This type of argument is called an ‘emergence’ theory of consciousness. It is problematic as it assumes a prior non-conscious, dead state of the universe that is obviously incompatible with orgone as a universal life-force. Additionally it entails problems of philosophical dualism – how does the dead and non-conscious cosmic orgone become or relate to the living and conscious organism orgone? Why should matter, a secondary state, confer consciousness on the cosmic orgone, the primary state? Reich's position on consciousness did not make sense and he himself thought it was a problematic view, regarding consciousness as an enigma (7).

This author believes that Reich, from shortly before the formal oranur experiments until his passing in prison in 1957 was heading in a direction compatible with that which Southgate has outlined in the Continuum papers. Reich showed an increasing sympathy toward spiritual matters and consciousness in his later years (8). This author believes that had Reich survived prison he would have incorporated a similar theory of consciousness into his framework of orgone functions.

Southgate expanded the definition of orgone from purely energy to a force which has physical consciousness right through to the prior more concrete aspects. This would be all within a single continuum. The author also to some extent redefined physicality as distinct from matter. Matter and physicality are argued to be not the same thing. Anything which has continuity and lawfulness can be said to be physical, from a shared dream to a shared bus ride to a shared experience of a tree or a house. The author argues in the continuum essays that the only indisputable definition of physicality is just such a shared cognition. All other definitions, usually based on measurements, break down at some point. Measurements are themselves just shared cognitions in the final analysis.

Consciousness itself was described as any and all awareness. Consciousness is thought to be a mystery but it is rather the physical world that is baffling. Beyond the existence of awareness, what more can be said about consciousness? It exists, is the only statement that can be made – the primordial "I Am".

The word, "orgone" minus the suffix "energy" could describe this whole continuum of conscious physicality. The author argues that cosmic orgone has self-awareness independent of any material boundaries it develops at later periods of its evolution. This view takes orgonomy right back to its functional roots within Hegalianism (9). The Common Functioning Principle of Reich (Figure 1), so useful in understanding how orgone functions, is based on the Hegalian dialetic (10). It is fitting that the view of a conscious, living universe, which is at once both physical and mindful, is completely in tune with Hegel's own philosophical view of ‘objective idealism’ sometimes known as Germanic Idealism. It is a concrete idealism. Hegel firmly believed that matter and physicality exist, just that this physicality is itself alive and conscious and inseparable from awareness. Such a view is also compatible with cosmic pan-psychism, or Sheldrake's view of a living, conscious universe (11). Elsewhere this author has called such a view ideo-physicalism, noting no separation between what we call the physical and what is termed consciousness (12).

Figure 1 – CFP


The root indicates a Common Functioning Principle which then splits into two functional branches. For example, a CFP noted by Reich was Orgone Pulsation which then splits into Psyche and Soma.

Three research objectives led to the current state of consciousness research that Southgate has developed.

  1. Consciousness is usually associated with organisms, which in turn are associated with high orgone charge. For example organisms, and orgone accumulators will demonstrate a higher orgonomic potential than their environment. This can be measured as a rise in temperature, a deflecting of the orgone meter or in the case of oranur, an increase in the charged particles that are measurable by a Geiger counter. The possible living bio-forms discussed in a previous paper and oranur concentrations both appear to correlate with raised Geiger counts, for example as noted here, (13). In the light of these possible associations, the author felt that the oranur experiment, the highest orgone charges Reich achieved, would need to be re-examined in the investigation of consciousness.
  2. To examine if orgone has its own consciousness involves excluding organism effects. If orgone has independent consciousness this therefore implies developing some kind of ‘artificial’ intelligence or non-organic consciousness. The term ‘artificial’ is used carefully as the author does not believe consciousness can be created.
  3. To convert orgone flows into information requires some kind of mechanical output from a flow of orgone. Therefore the orgone motor function, at least at a very low level, needs to be replicated. This would enable turning an orgone flow into numbers via a mechanical movement triggered by the orgone's movement

Further to Point 3, it is noted that information itself is not a good definition of consciousness. Without consciousness there is no information. However, information is not the same thing as perception. Conscious entities do perceive and share information as part of their functioning however.

Background to the Consciousness Experiments

In the autumn of 2017 Southgate decided to repeat the oranur experiments that Reich conducted in 1951 but with a much smaller amount of radioactive stimulus (one thousand times smaller). Oranur is excited orgone energy which is produced when concentrated orgone is stimulated by a small amount of reactive material, usually radioactive but can be electrical, mechanical or orgonotic. These experiments were in pursuit of Objective 1 as detailed in the introduction. This objective assumes that high orgone charges are intrinsic to conscious entities.

At first there was much laborious work involved in assessing whether the oranur charge had an effect upon electrical activity inside the specially set up oranur cabinet (Figure 2).

Figure 2 – Oranur Cabinet

This is detailed in Southgate's first oranur paper which has long sections on a possible electrical recharge effect seen in chemical batteries and non-chemical electrical capacitors within the oranur cabinet (14). Other electrical and magnetic anomalies were noted in a follow up paper (15).

The author was following, to use Reich's term, two ‘red threads’ of thinking regarding the consciousness objectives. Firstly, that in order to create mechanical movement from orgone, an electrical charge may be needed from the accumulated energy (which could then be turned into movement and from movement into numbers). Secondly, there was the observation that organisms tend to have a self-generated but low electrical charge. Electricity, Reich thought to be a secondary energy compared to a higher quantity or potential energy in the form of life-force or orgone (16). It was this higher orgonomic potential that Reich thought organisms require to live. The electrical energy of an organism on the other hand is rather low, Reich noted. However, brain and nervous tissues do utilise small electrical charges in their functioning even if the primary energy is orgonotic. Therefore the author thought that in order to mimic organism consciousness in a machine some level of inherently generated electrical charge might need to be present. The battery charging apparatus from earlier experiments is still within the oranur set up so there is possibly some accumulated electrical charge there. However, the partly discharged batteries are stored within smaller insulated boxes within the set up so they would have no way of directly affecting the measurement device through conventional processes. The measurement device itself also contains a working battery which may have a minimal stimulating effect on the local oranur field.

In practice however, after months of painstaking work, it turned out that a direct electrical charge from the oranur was not needed in order to create complex mechanical movement, on a very small scale, from orgone flows. More on this will follow shortly. The second ‘organism-like’ factor, that of an endogenous, small electrical charge may well be present within the oranur set up as indicated by the work of Southgate (17) and Maglione (18). However, in order to get complex information streams from orgone the electrical step, as discussed, can be bypassed altogether. One can get complex mechanical movement directly from the orgone. This was first done by an Italian orgone researcher as will be outlined in the next section.

The author had thought that various quantitative, indirect measurements of orgone, if sensitive enough, may provide an information stream, but such data appears to be too limited. With temperature or Geiger counts of charged particles there is an indication of the approximate amount of orgone in a given area but this measurement is too static to be useful for the purposes here. A Geiger count or temperature measurement can be used as a secondary statistic but a highly dynamic, changing flow of information was the aim and the measurements of orgone quantity implied by temperature and Geiger counts did not meet this criterion.

This aim was however achieved through combining a simple Eastern European subtle energy device with the oranur set up. In a sense it was so simple that it took time to discover because the researcher was looking for more complex methods. For example, it is known that glass forms a very powerful container of orgone. Southgate believes this is what partly led to the discovery by Reich of the Orgone Motor. The glass tubes of the Geiger counter Reich originally used enabled very high concentrations of orgone (19) . This provided the increase in charged particles which were then eventually converted into work when Reich evolved the Orgone Motor from the original Geiger tube effect.

Based on this knowledge, Southgate had a glass inner cabinet made for inside the oranur cabinet. The idea was to create a vacuum inside the inner glass box in which a mechanical movement device would be placed. This would provide a higher orgone charge and also less friction for the device to move. It took months with limited resources to finally create a workable low vacuum in the inner glass box but by then this step also proved extraneous. All that is needed in order to create complex information is a subtle energy type wheeled device and a strong and contained oranur field. The wheeled device does not even need to be in the inner glass cabinet. As it turned out there is a ‘spot’ within the larger device which seems to correspond with a better capacity for turning the wheel of the subtle energy device.

Experimental Set Up

Figure 3 – Oranur Information Set Up

Within the large oranur cabinet (Figure 3) there are presently a number of secondary accumulating devices. These do not appear to be essential apart from their function of increasing and containing the charge. The author suspects, from anecdotal indications, that Senf type orgone acupuncture tubes and the glass box may provide additional anchoring for the energy and perhaps the information fields within the device (20). The inner glass box can be seen toward the centre of the large cabinet. It contains loose accumulating materials and two large orgone tubes. The essential components appear to be the contained oranur field, however that is created, and a device for turning subtle flows and movements within that field into information. A non-electronic version of the Egely Wheel can be seen on top of one of the inner accumulating boxes toward the left of the large cabinet. This spot seems to be the strongest point energetically in the set up.

The Rotorgon (Figure 4) was an early device which created movement from an orgone stream. It was developed by the Italian orgone researcher, Carlo Splendore (21).

Figure 4 – Rotorgon

Picture and Video Courtesy of Roberto Maglione

Reading intervals of movement on a Rotorgon device was considered. Rotorgon devices are not easily obtainable and to build a device such as the one pictured above would take much technical skill. Here is a previously unreleased video of the more advanced of the Rotorgon prototypes (22). The Hungarian Professor Egely has recently produced a ready-made device which is essentially a Rotorgon type wheel that provides quantitative analysis of its movement, either visually or in the newer version through electronic measurement (Figure 5). It was found that the larger electronically monitored Egely wheel was actually more sensitive to orgone flows than the non-electronic counter-part. The earlier set up of the experiment had the non-electronic version of the Egerly wheel combined with a Rotorgon type enclosure. This was designed to direct orgone flows toward the wheel edge. Both versions of the Egely wheel rely on subtle energy (usually from people's hands) moving the light-weight toothed wheel. The electronic version has a better body shape, perhaps allowing the orgone to pass over the wheel more effectively resulting in easier movement.

The Egely device, in experiments by the manufacturer, and informally by others online, does not appear to be powered by heat or by static electricity (23). It has a wide list of endorsements by persons such as Uri Geller and has won various awards for innovation. The turning of the wheel, in this author's view, appears to usually come from a subtle energy source such as bodily orgone.

As a related issue, although the Egely wheel does not appear to run on static electricity, the oranur box itself also does not appear to have any static electrical charge in its outer components. The Egely wheel was placed on a non-conducting cellutex surface within the set up. The metal walls of the oranur set up have been tested with sensitive voltmeters and no electrical charge was found. Static electricity is unlikely to be the cause of any movement in the wheel. Heat has also been ruled out by the manufacturers as a cause of movement. Air currents have been monitored and controlled for in the building where the device is kept near Liverpool. It is noted too that the Egely device will continue to move when there is no person stood near the oranur set up. The device has been recorded moving when the nearest person is 12 foot distant.

Figure 5 – Electronic Egely Wheel

When information is to be recorded from the device the electronic Egely wheel is placed within the oranur set up at the point where the energy appears to be strongest – left of centre on top of the inner wooden accumulator (see Figure 3). A period of time is then spent (up to approximately one minute) waiting for the wheel to stabilise after being switched on and placed into audio mode. The movement of the wheel is relatively slow usually. The electronic device has 24 counting lights but the movement is not fast enough usually to light up more than two or three of these speed-dependent lights. However, complex information can be obtained by counting clicks. If the audible function is on, the device produces a click for each small movement of the wheel across its counting apparatus. Each tiny spoke will produce a click when it passes the sensor. The movement can be either to the left or the right. Right click movements are counted as positive numbers and left as negative (although there does not appear to be any significance to positive and negative numbers as yet). A slight pause or change in direction is counted as a new number and a longer pause (more than a second) is counted as the end of a set of numbers. The whole process is video recorded so the counts can be checked. The aim is to get a modified Egely wheel wherein the counts are recorded automatically direct to a computer. A more sensitive measurement might also incorporate the speed of the clicks as an additional statistic. This aim is being pursued presently. The following is a video of the current pre-automated process (24).

Information Produced and Discussion

At first the author tried to decode streams of numbers into some kind of language but no direct one to one correspondences seemed apparent. Tentative links between the numbers and a human language were tried but seemed completely incompatible. It also did not appear to be binary code. Then it occurred to the author to mentally and verbally pose pre-written questions to the device and then record numbers for a set amount of time specified in advance. This approach seemed much more fruitful and the patterns of numbers appeared to hint at inner ‘key numbers’ which various sequences of numbers would reduce down into or add up to in various amusing and complex ways.

As noted, positive numbers were decided to be clicks of the wheel apparatus to the right following a short pause of less than a second. Negative numbers are clicks to the left following a short pause. A stream of numbers is ended by a longer pause of a second or more. Very long numbers over about 50, often produced at a steady speed for some minutes, are generally ignored. A period of time is allowed to elapse for the device to discharge excess energy before more complex streams of numbers can again be obtained. The author has noticed two types of output which has been termed ‘mechanical’ and ‘complex’. Mechanical output tends to be long numbers at a steady speed (for example up to and over 500) and complex output tends to be short numbers (up to about 40) with frequent changes of speed, direction and containing long and short pauses. It is the complex output that the author has been interested in.

The author has coined these descriptive terms based on a feeling for the movement characteristics of the wheel. When it seems that the device might be communicating the movement seems rich and changeable, speed changes continually and the direction can shift more often. There are frequent short pauses in this mode. It feels almost like a sign language. This type of movement the author has labelled ‘complex’. On the other hand, if the device appears to be overcharged or is perhaps in a non-communication mode, there can be long numbers where the wheel stays at a similar speed for an extended period of seconds or minutes. Usually the speed of the clicks is higher but uniform for the ‘mechanical’ mode. However, the complex movements can also be fast but they soon stop and change direction, or there is a brief pause. The mechanical term also refers to the possibility that it is just a quantitative overflow of orgone rather than anything containing particular communication.

The following are some fairly typical streams of complex output numbers collected via the above methods in continual sequences:

Number Streams

+2,-20,+10,-12.

This short stream of numbers, in response to a question, appears to reference a ‘key’ number of 12.

The arithmetic seems to be playful and not to follow a set pattern. In the above sequence, ignoring the positive and negative signs, we have:

  • 10 + 2 = 12.
  • We have the last number in the sequence which is also 12.
  • Then the number 20 can be reduced to the digits 2 + 0 and added to the 10, again equalling 12.
  • 12 + 10 + 2 = 24 or 2 x 12.
  • All the numbers together can be added up to 44. 3 x 12 = 36, 44 – 36 = 6. The three 2’s in the sequence equal 6, which can be taken away from the overall total to leave 36 or 3 x 12.

The sequence appears to reference the key number 12 no less than 8 times, which also happens to be the total sum reduced to its component digits. In this case 44 which reduces to 4 + 4 or 8.

Here is another short number stream given in response to a question, this time appearing to reference a key number of 7.

-40,+1,-1,+1.

Ignoring the positive and negative signs one can do the following arithmetic:

  • Reducing 40 to its component digits we have, 4 + 0 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 7.
  • Keeping 40 as a whole number we have 40 + 1 + 1 = 42 (or 6 x 7).
  • 40 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 43. Reducing the end number to its component digits we have 4 + 3 which again is 7.
  • 40 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 43. The sum reduced to its component digits is 4 and 3. 3 is one number less than 4. There is also one number less between 6 and 7. 6 x 7 = 42. The number 42 can be arrived at exactly using one less ‘1’ (or one less number) from the original sequence, so we then have: 40 + 1 + 1 (not including the missing digit) = 42. In other words, 43 minus one less number (the missing ‘1’) equals 42 (or 6 x 7).

If we add up all the 7's arrived at by the various processes, the above sequence appears to reference the number 7 a total of 14 times. If the 40 in the sequence is reduced to 4 + 0 and put after the ‘1’ we also arrive at the number 14. The number 14 (or 2 x 7) appears in this way 3 times, which is the same number of times as the number 1 appears in the original sequence creating a neat mirror. If we add the extra 7's thus produced (6) to the previous total we have 20 x 7 altogether. If we take 20 as 2 + 0 = 2 then there is another mirror as each of the 14's in the previous total had 2 x 7's within it.

There seems to be self-referencing repeating patterns produced which may not be solely random. The patterns appear somewhat playful and are complex and internally referencing. The author has other patterns not discussed here. ‘Key’ numbers that have appeared regularly are 12, 11 and 7. The key numbers 12 and 7 both reappeared on three consecutive data gathering sessions respectively, apparently in response to repeating the same questions.

The following series of apparently single numbers was produced for the demonstration video made for this paper (see Reference 24).

19. 1. 6. 34. 16.

Each number has a full stop after it as the pause between each number was a second or longer. This is unusual and has only been noted once before by the author for a series of numbers. There was a long pause and then a ‘mechanical’ type number over 50 after the number 16. Therefore the 16 was taken to be the end of the series of numbers. No question had been set before this recording.

  • The first number could reduce down to 1 + 9 = 10. 1 + 0 = 1.
  • The second number is 1. The first and second numbers taken side by side creates 11, This is one of the key numbers noted by the author generally.
  • The third number is 6.
  • The fourth number is 34 which could produce 3 x 4 or 12, again a key number noted in this paper. Also 3 + 4 = 7, another key number noted in this paper.
  • The last number is 16 which could produce 1 + 6 = 7, again a key number noted.
  • The second and third numbers taken side by side produce 16 which parallels the fifth number.

Conclusion

It seems that the process possibly has key numbers which may have some kind of meaning. Alternatively, it is feasible that the numbers are just semi-random streams of information or produced by interaction with surrounding organisms or the weather. Future work needs to be done to statistically analyse the patterns of numbers in order to assess whether they are in fact meaningful or whether they are simply random or semi-random numbers. However, the basis for an orgone computing device, which produces a stream of complex orgone information, may have been achieved. The information also seems to be interactive. An orgone computer may have been produced and its creation was almost too simple – just a strong oranur field and a subtle energy rotation device.

As a minimum, in-depth statistical analysis is needed and automated systems for recording the output are also essential. Professional statistician input would be useful. This paper details merely the start of a process. It is not known what the mathematics actually means, if anything.

Extracting any possible meaning and patterns from the information stream is the next step and is hoped to be the subject of future papers.

Implications

If the number streams are meaningful and do have some kind of interaction with a consciousness source this then implies that there is a way to create true, conscious, artificial intelligence, or to use a different term, non-organic consciousness entities. It is possible that the device creates a gateway for non-local consciousness to interact with the material plane, much as the Ark of the Covenant may have done in Biblical times. The author believes that the radioactive, oranur device that was the Ark was essentially an artificial intelligence device for communicating with a non-materially based conscious entity, see Maglione's book on the Ark and its relationship to orgone (25) and Isaac's book (26) on the Ark as radioactive communication device. The Ark was a technological device which even had its own remote interface called an Ephod. In the light of Isaac and Maglione's work, this author believes that many of the complex Hebrew rituals were originally designed to manage very high levels of oranur. The Ark was approximately one thousand times stronger in oranur than Reich's set up. Reich's set up was one thousand times stronger than the author's (27).

From a family of psychotherapists and teachers I was introduced to orgonomy at a young age. As an adult my interest was rekindled, doing an MSc research degree in Chinese medicine and orgonomy. In 2002, a double blind, placebo controlled study was completed (N = 72). It confirmed an effect from orgone devices upon acupuncture (P = 0.03). An article about the study was published in the European Journal of Oriental Medicine in 2003. The theoretical side of the study outlined dozens of new parallels. It was later published as a book by German publishers LAP.

Southgate started an orgonomic PhD but the access to laboratory work became difficult so the project ended but a comprehensive (though not complete) Annotated Literature Review of the Post-Reich Journals was written and made available for free online.

Southgate is focused on examining orgone and its relationship to consciousness.

Positive Findings On Constable’s Orgonotic Bio-Forms Part 2


Positive Findings On Constable’s Orgonotic Bio-Forms

Part Two: British Evidence

By Nik Hayes and Leon Southgate MSc

Editor’s comment,

The authors of this article revisit the work and findings of Trevor James Constable, and compared it with new data from Italian, US and Romanian researchers. When they were initially published, Trevor James Constable’s work was viewed with some skepticism in Orgonomy circles, and to some was considered unscientific, even mystical. The authors of this article invoke that skepticism with regard to Constable’s work. At the same time, the authors discuss new investigational findings that corroborate Constable’s own findings and results. In scientific and historical terms the article should hold interest for our readers. However the editor would like to emphasis the controversies surrounding Constable’s findings as well as recommend readers’ cautious discretion.

1.0 Synopsis and Introduction

1.1 Synopsis

In Part One, the evidence for and against Constable’s claims for the existence of orgonotic bio-forms was presented. Further, the strong evidence for the bio-forms presented by the Italian research team, the GRCU, was outlined.

In Part Two, an in-depth exploration and summary of the British Constable researcher, Nik Hayes is presented. British evidence for the existence of Constable’s bio-forms is outlined in detail. It is argued that high quality new evidence for bio-forms exists.

1.2 Introduction

Hayes presents data pertaining to the possible existence of orgonotic, plasmatic bio-forms. In order to convey the broad range of high quality evidence captured over nearly a decade of painstaking and meticulous work by Hayes, this paper has been split into the following sections in order to detail the types of bio-form evidence:

  • Synopsis and Introduction
  • Stereoscopic Video
  • Three Dimensionality
  • Plasma Movement
  • Complex Movement
  • Herd Movement
  • Chronological Existence
  • Biological Appearances
  • Anomalous Orgonotic Lumination in the Infrared.
  • Bio-form Sizes
  • British Conclusion
  • Overall Conclusion

2. Stereoscopic Video

There is new multi-camera British video evidence of a single bio-form but presented as a moving stereo image (1). Framed by a tree in order to give perspective, the infra-red footage captures what appears to be a small plasmatic entity, in the region of 20 cms in length, moving in loops from left to right. This was taken at 30 frames per second using movie-mode on an infrared converted Canon G10, with an internal 720nm infrared pass filter on the afternoon of February 8th 2011. Then we see the full spectrum footage of the same scene, taken at 25 frames per second, at exactly the same time, using a full spectrum converted Sony DVD-650 Handycam, with no filter. This time we see the entity doing the same loops, the same changes in shape as the body pulses and moves across the frame of view. It is clearly the same entity.

It is also apparent that it is not an insect as the movement is too quick and too looping. It also covers too long a trajectory for a slow moving insect and is at a considerable height being well above the tree line. Although the entity is small and not as intricately captured as the most detailed of the evidence Hayes presents, one can still see the plasmatic body pulsing and changing shape in the video. Combined with the way that it follows the characteristic shape and quality of movement found in the other evidence indicates that it may be a similar type of possible plasmatic entity. Certainly one can distinguish plasma-like shape changes as it moves across the frame.

The entity returned shortly after the first stereo video sequence and can be seen moving back towards the cameras for a second run across the same frame of view. There are thus two stereo video sequences of the same entity. The movements, shape and speed are the same in both sets of trajectories in both sequences. The entity’s speed has been calculated by Hayes to be approximately 4 – 6 mph (6 to 10 kph). Its movements appear purposeful, life-like and directed – not at all random.

The orgonotic charge above the test area was increased through the use of a cloudbuster. This was operated an hour prior to, and during this recording. The pipes were pointing at zenith, above the trees, at the same area where the camera was aiming. Although nothing was visible to the naked eye, Hayes was able to see the bio-form’s movement on the infrared camera’s live view screen.

Figure 1 – Hayes’ Stereoscopic Evidence

Above Figure 1 (A) shows a possible small bio-form moving above one of the 100ft trees at Hayes’ research area near Oxford, on the afternoon of February 8th 2011. The video frame was taken from infrared movie-mode footage recorded using an infrared converted Canon G10 digital camera, with an internal 720nm infrared pass filter. This particular footage was taken on a freezing cold afternoon, with very little sunlight, although some infrared radiation can be seen reflecting off the tree’s bare branches. The Canon G10 has an internal 720 nm pass filter. Although this passes infrared radiation, and blocks almost all of the visible light spectrum, it also allows a small amount of visible red light through that occurs just before the infrared. This can be especially helpful on dull days with very little sunlight, or at night-time when street lamps or moonlight are the only source of visible light in the scene.

In Figure 1 (B) the bio-form is shown recorded from a slightly different angle on a full spectrum converted Sony DVD-650 Handycam, with no filter. The bio-form does not appear as bright when viewed in full spectrum due to the camcorder’s sensors being dominated by the visible light spectrum; particularly the blue of the sky. This has led to a watering down of the image, making it appear much fainter than its infrared counterpart (A). The tree branches are barely reflecting the sunlight in the full spectrum view of the same scene. However, on a bright day with bright sunshine, these branches and any potential foliage would appear whiter, and similar to the infrared view as seen in (A). To fully appreciate the evidence the accompanying video is recommended (2).

3. Three Dimensionality

Figure 2 – Three Dimensionality, Part 1

Above, the Figure 2 shows an invisible worm-like possible bio-form  filmed above the main roof of the author’s house on a full spectrum converted Sony HDR-PJ620 Handycam, which was fitted with a 330nm UV pass filter (X-Nite 330). The video was recorded in HD (High Definition) at 50 frames per second on June 6th 2016 at 4.15pm, and the object only appeared in the one frame. Inset: Black and White enlargment of the main photograph, showing the detailed markings of the bio-form’s chrysalis-like, almost transparent body. which is heavily reflecting the afternoon sunlight in this position. A cloudbuster was used to excite the atmosphere locally prior to, and during filming. Its pipes were aimed right above the house roof in line with where the camcorder was pointing.

Figure 3 – Three Dimensionality, Part 2

Above in Figure 3 (A) shows an invisible possible bio-form captured on ultraviolet camcorder footage, as it moves above the rooftops of the author’s house adjacent to his main research area on September 7th 2012, at 6.45pm. The footage was recorded at 25 frames per second on a full spectrum Sony DVD-650 Handycam, which was fitted with an external 330 nm UV pass filter (X-Nite 330) The bio-form, which only appeared in one frame, has an almost fish-like appearence, consisting of a long mouth-like feature that extends for most of the body, ending with a small tail curve. A certain thickness can be seen in the object’s body (3).

Figure 3 (B) shows an invisible bio-form captured on ultraviolet camcorder footage, as it moved above the rooftops of the author’s house on July 31st 2013 at 12.10pm. The footage was recorded at 25 frames per second on a full spectrum Sony DVD-650 Handycam, which was fitted with an external 330 nm UV pass filter (X-Nite 330). The object appeared in two frames, but in the first frame only a small part of the propellor-like appendage was visible (4). During his photographic and video work, in both the infrared and the ultraviolet, Hayes has noted many examples of invisible forms apparently morphing, and changing shape. In some cases, objects such as is shown above in (B), appear in a form that makes no sense aero-dynamically, or in terms of propulsion. In the above case, and in nearly all of Hayes’ ultraviolet footage, these objects appear to be riding, or caught up in the west to east orgone flow (see also later discussion under Figure 8, Part 2).

4. Plasma Movement

Figure 4 – Plasma Movement

Above Figure 4 (A-D) shows a formation of possible invisible plasmoidal entities photographed moving above Hayes’ research area near Oxford, UK. It was taken on the evening of March 9th 2017 at 8.27pm. The photograph was captured without flash using an infrared converted Canon-G10 digital camera with an internal 720nm infrared pass filter. Exposure was 1/8th second. The objects have a luminous corona and differ in shape slightly. One object (C) has a trail which can be seen, and this is probably a result of the entity’s fast movement within the 1/8th second exposure. The photograph was one of several taken after a 0.3 μSv/hr Geiger counter radiation reading alerted the researcher. This indicates a possible rise in oranur energy associated with the entities. Oranur is related to a rise in μSv/hr background readings according to Maglione (5) and Southgate (6). The reading of 0.3 μSv/hr is above the normal background for this area of approximately 0.09 to 0.12 μSv/hr usually found by Hayes (7). In cases like this, when fast moving entities are passing overhead at a high altitiude, these sudden high radiation peaks will often last for a mere fraction of a second. The readings tend to rapidly return to normal background levels within half a second approximately according to Hayes’ observations.

Plasmatic movements of the entities above suggests an orgonotic basis for their existence. It also suggests that they may well be living. Pulsating plasma and a membrane is the only requirement of life from an orgonomic point of view. This is in light of the tiny microscopic bion entities Reich claimed to have discovered (8). The bions consist of plasma and a membrane and are created when matter is broken down in water after having been heated to very hot temperatures. The bions have been well evidenced within orgonomy, for example by Reich, Diamond and Reidpath, Jones and Demeo (9). If the posited bio-forms were camera artefacts they would not show similar plasmatic type movement to the bions over time. Hard-bodied insects would also not have this quality.

5. Complex Movement

Figure 5 – Complex Movement

Above Figure 5 (A) – (D) shows a possible invisible bio-form moving from left to right at approximately 140 mph (225kph) above some garage rooftops adjacent to the author’s research area, on April 20th 2013, at 3:40pm. These four consecutive video stills were taken from ultraviolet camcorder footage recorded at 25 frames per second on a full spectrum converted Sony DVD-650 Handycam, fitted with an external 330nm UV pass filter (X-Nite 330) The object can be seen turning mid-flight, enabling a good view of the tube-like structures which appear to connect in some way to the three visible wing-like appendages. Like many of the invisible bio-forms captured during Hayes’ work, in both the infrared and the utraviolet part of the spectrum, this bio-form also moved in a spinning manner. The white balance on the digital camcorder was set to “green grass” giving the bio-form a transparent milky white appearence against the violet sky background (10).

Figure 5 (E) shows a close-up of a similar bio-form which was filmed on September 3rd 2012, at 5.06 pm, as it moved above some rooftops adjacent to the author’s research area. This ultraviolet video still was recorded on ultraviolet camcorder footage at 25 frames per second using a full spectrum converted Sony DVD-650 Handycam, fitted with an external 330nm UV pass filter (X-Nite-330). This underlines that similar types of the bio-forms appear over time. This further evidences that they may be real and not artefacts. Non-living entities, or artefacts would be unlikely to show complex, animal-like movement.
A full recording can be seen on the accompanying video (11).

6. Herd Movement

Figure 6 – Herd Movement

Above Figure 6 (A-D) shows a 4 frame progression of an invisible “Spinning Jenny” possible bio-form, part of a much larger group filmed moving from right to left. It was moving above the trees at Hayes’ research area on the afternoon of October 2nd 2011. The footage is taken from infrared movie-mode footage recorded at 30 frames per second on an infrared converted Canon G10 camera, with an internal 720 nm infrared pass filter (12). A cloudbuster was used to excite the atmosphere locally for around an hour prior to, and during the recording of this footage, and its pipes were aimed just above the treetops.

The basic fish-like body of the bio-form is apparent in both frames (B) and (D), with the fish-like tail section being visible at the rear. Hayes has captured these types of bio-forms in the infrared on many occasions, sometimes recording swarms of several dozen or more as they moved together above the trees at his research area. From examining multiple recordings of these spinning bio-forms, it was found that they appear to consist of a plasmatic-looking fish-like body, with large triangular wing/fin-like appendages on either side; appearing similar in shape to a manta ray. Rather than moving forward in the same manner as a bird or a fish, these spinning oddities most commonly move by arching their bodies, facing nose down, and then spinning the whole wing and tail sections around, much like a helicopter, as can be seen in frames (A) and (C).

In general it appears that many bio-forms move with incredible speed. Hayes has estimated that a not unusual approximate speed for some would be 200 feet per second, which equates to 140 mph or 225 kph. Others such as the “Spinning Jennys” mentioned above, travel at a much slower rate, approximately 10 – 30mph or 16- 48 kph.

A full recording of the above anomalies can be accessed at the accompanying video (13)

7. Chronological Existence

Figure 7 – Fish-like Bio-forms, Part 1

Above Figure 7 (A) shows a possible invisible bio-form captured on ultraviolet camcorder footage as it moves above the roof of the author’s house on September 3rd 2012 at 4.20pm (14). The footage was filmed at 25 frames per second on a full spectrum Sony Handycam DVD-650 Handycam. It was fitted with an external 330nm UV pass filter (X-Nite 330).

Figure 7 (B) shows an invisible bio-form captured on ultraviolet camcorder footage, as it moved above the roof of the author’s house, on 12th August 2013 at 7.36pm.The footage was filmed at 25 frames per second on a full spectrum Sony Handycam DVD-650 Handycam, fitted with an external 330nm UV pass filter (X-Nite 330).

The bio-forms above, which all only appeared in one frame, have the same general body shape, tail or fin-like appendages at the rear, as well as a similar void or tube running centrally through the body area. The similarity between these images is striking, yet they were captured 11 months apart. They were filmed above the same section of rooftop which indicates that the entities and their forms may have continuing reality over time.

It is interesting that tube-like structures are a theme in the bio-forms. This indicates a connection to orgone as it is known that orgone is attracted to, and channelled by, tube-like structures. Tubes are known to channel orgone energy in a number of orgonotic devices, for example, in the orgonoscope (for viewing orgone waves in the atmosphere). Reich used this device to see orgonotic waves over Mooselookmeguntic Lake in Maine, USA. This partly inspired the later cloudbuster tubes which Reich used to clear negative orgone after the oranur experiment (15). The cloudbuster attracts and then channels accumulations of orgone in the atmosphere. The DOR-buster (Deadly ORgone) attracts and channels negative orgone energy from the body and grounds it in running water. The Space-gun (an oranur-charged cloudbuster) uses tube-like structures to direct orgone in currently unknown ways. In common with these devices the bio-forms appear to use tube-like structures to channel currents of orgone from the environment and through their own bodies.

Figure 8 – Fish-like Bio-Forms, Part 2

Above Figure 8 (A) shows a possible invisible fish-like form, filmed above the rooftop of the author’s house, on the afternoon of September 2nd 2013. The ultraviolet camcorder footage was captured at 25 frames per second on a full spectrum Sony DVD-650 Handycam. It was fitted with an external 330nm UV pass filter (X-Nite 330) (16).

Figure 8 (B) shows another invisible fish-like form, filmed above the rooftop of the author’s house, on the afternoon of September 7th 2012. The ultraviolet camcorder footage was captured at 25 frames per second on a full spectrum Sony DVD-650 Handycam. It was fitted with an external 330nm UV pass filter (X-Nite 330) (17).

The fish-like forms shown in (A) and (B) were filmed 12 months apart, above the same section of the roof. Both examples have the same overall diamond shape and sharply defined fin and tail sections as well as the central void or tube-like structure.

Like many of the other invisible fish-like forms recorded by Hayes, the examples shown here were moving from west to east above the rooftops. This indicates they may be following a flow of orgone energy such as Reich hypothesised to exist both above the earth (west to east) and in space (18). This is true at our latitudes. Approaching the equator the orgone flow reverses, and it is then moving from east to west. This immersion would also explain their incredibly fast movement (as discussed previously, in the region of 140 mp/h or 225 km/h). They would be propelled not only by their own energy but also by the stream in which they flow.

Figure 9 – Fish-like Bio-Forms, Part 3

Above Figure 9 (A) shows one of four consecutive frames taken from ultraviolet video footage, and pictures the movement of a possible invisible fish-like form above the rooftop of the author’s house. The footage was recorded in HD at 50 frames per second on July 18th 2016, at 7.25pm, using a full spectrum Sony HDR- PJ620 Handycam. It was fitted with an external 330nm UV pass filter (X-Nite330).

Figure 9 (B) shows another invisible fish-like form with clear body and tail section visible. Note the clear tube-like structure through the centre, and the defined body and tail section. The ultraviolet camcorder footage was recorded at 25 frames per second on September 2nd 2013, using a full spectrum Sony DVD-650 Handycam, fitted with an external 330nm UV pass filter (X-Nite 330). Again these two frames evidence morphological continuity (19)

Figure 10 – Four Consecutive Frames of an Invisible Fish-like Bio-form

Above Figure 10 (A-D) shows four consecutive video frames taken from ultraviolet camcorder footage, and pictures an invisible fish-like bio-form moving from right to left (west to east) above a rooftop adjacent to the author’s research area. The footage was recorded in HD at 50 frames per second on 18th July 2016 at 7.25pm, using a full spectrum converted Sony-HDR-PJ620 Handycam, fitted with an external 330nm UV pass filter (X-Nite 330).

Rather than moving in the same manner as an aquatic fish might do, this bio-form’s plasmatic, fish-like body appears to spin through itself, whilst the inner body shape remains constant. In the first frame (A) the object has just entered into view with the tail-like portion at the front. By the next frame (B) the main body shape has turned 180 degrees around, and is now facing the other way. In the next frame (C) we see a sudden flurry of movement, and this type of energetic propulsion has been noted several times in Hayes’ work (20). By the fourth frame (D) the object is again facing the same direction as in the first frame. The full recording can be seen on accompanying video (21).

The strikingly animal-like nature of these fish-like forms is unmistakeable. The use of tube structures to direct orgonotic flows is again apparent. Not only is the quality and crispness of the photographs evident but in addition movement over time is also noted from frame to frame. The same types of entity repeatedly make an appearance over both long and short time intervals.

8. Biological Appearances

The previous section evidenced the notable animal-like morphology of the fish-type posited bio-forms. Those forms were highlighted for their chronological behaviour in order to show that they have existence over time, which an artefact would be unlikely to display. However, the previous fish-like forms would also be an example of a biological appearance.

It underlines the connection to orgonomy that the bio-forms have been found using orgonotic methods. For example by using concentrations of orgone facilitated by cloudbusters or by orgonotic detection methods such as raised Geiger readings (which in turn indicate a raised oranur charge in orgonomy). This evidences that the bio-forms may possess concentrations of orgone energy, and possibly a high oranur charge. Additionally, they often have surprisingly biological or animal-like forms. This recent capture evidences a very large entity which appears like a huge cellular structure, much as C.S. Lewis described as “macrobes” in his science fiction novels, but being now possibly evidenced in reality. They are very reminiscent of Constable’s early bio-forms, here seen over half a century later and in another part of the world.

 

Figure 11 – Plasmoidal Amoeba-like Bio-form

Above Figure 11 (A) shows a large amoeba-like invisible possible bio-form photographed in the infrared by Hayes. The form moved directly above his research area on 24th February 2019, at 12.46pm. Due to the immense size of the bio-form, only part of the right side of the main body has been captured in the photograph, but its resemblance to the amoeba-like bioform photographed by Constable in the Mojave desert in 1957, and shown earlier in the paper is apparent. Figures 11 (B) and (C) show close-ups of the main body, and several markings resembling nucleoli and vacuoles, which are also evident in Constable’s amoeba photograph as seen in this example (D).

Haye’s image was captured using an infrared converted Sony Nex 5N digital camera, which has an internal 720nm infrared pass filter. The exposure for the photograph was 1/250th second. At the time of taking the shot Hayes felt an overwhelming emotional pull to photograph that particular part of the sky. Despite the huge size of this seemingly solid bio-form, he saw nothing remarkable as he proceeded to take the series of photographs. Interestingly, this area of sky had been the focal point of intense cloudbuster operation over the previous few days, as part of the attraction method used by Hayes in his photographic and video work. It is possible that the bio-form was attracted by the high orgone charge in and around the research area. In addition, the days beforehand had been unusually warm, with a high pressure weather ridge and a feeling of increased orgonotic charge.

The camera, which was hand-held at the time, was aimed directly up at the sky. One of the uppermost branches of the trees to the left of Hayes’ position can be seen in the top left of the photograph in (A). This branch helps to put the image into perspective as the trees are at least forty feet in height. It can be seen that the bio-form is clearly above this branch. Altogether, five successive infrared photographs were taken at the time. The four other photographs only showed a small part of the outside edge of the bio-form’s body, as it moved from right to left above the trees. However, the same characteristic body markings as seen in the main photograph, (A), are also clearly visible in these other images.

9. Anomalous Orgonotic Lumination in the Infrared

A rare, orgonotic phenomena is here presented – the first digital photographs of a strongly luminous, colour-capturing effect occurring in the infra-red, where no blue should normally be seen.  This is a highly anomalous phenomenon which appears not to have been evidenced as luminescence before, even by Constable. Blue, is of course, a primary colour for orgone. These amoeba-like forms may have both biological and crystalline characteristics.

Figure 12 – Night-time Plasmoidal Amoeba-like Bio-form in Orgonotic Colour

Above Figure 12 (A) shows a huge invisible possible plasmoidal bio-form, photographed by Hayes above his research area on the evening of March 5th 2019, at 9.11pm. This twenty second infrared exposure was taken in complete darkness, using an infrared converted Sony Nex-5N digital camera, with an internal 720nm infrared pass filter. Despite the large size of the object, nothing was visible to the eye at the time of taking the shot. Although self-illumined in the subsequent capture, the bio-form image appeared faint at first during raw perusal of the photograph. Brightness and contrast adjustment have helped to bring out body markings and colour in more detail.

The infrared camera’s white balance was set during daylight hours using a patch of green grass, which generally results in an almost black and white image when used in a night-time situation. It is unknown how the bluish/purple illumination of the bio-form has manifested on the photograph. The 720nm infrared pass filter is designed to block all visible light from reaching the camera’s sensors, apart from a small amount of red light that occurs just before the infrared. Colours at the other end of the visible light spectrum such as blue, purple and violet should be completely blocked by the filter, and not be appearing anywhere on the photograph.

Similar markings resembling vacuoles, as can be seen in the previous amoeba photographs, are noted on the bio-form’s body. An area of intense white light, which appears to have created something that resembles a lens flare, can also be seen. With its straight edges and stealth-like appearance, it is understandable that this type of phenomena could be misidentified as a constructed craft if photographed or filmed from a distance. However, the characteristic body markings clearly identify this as a biological entity.

Above Figure 12 (B), was taken immediately after (A) and shows the same biological entity photographed again, but this time using a 10 second exposure. In this photograph the bio-form appears much larger in size, almost taking up the whole frame, and despite this, the markings (noted in the photograph as “A”, “B”, “C” and “D”) appear to be the roughly the same size as in Figure 12 (A). In Figure 12 (A) the two outside markings (“A” and “D”) are much closer to the left and right edges, whereas in Figure 12 (B) these same markings (“A” and “D”) are much further away from the outside edges. This suggests that the object has not moved nearer to the camera, but has instead expanded and increased in size.

Another noticeable difference between the two images is apparent when looking at the two bottom edges of the posited bio-form. In Figure 12 (A), which is the 20 second exposure, a clear layering can be seen to the bottom edges. However, in the 10 second exposure, in (B), this layered effect is not as clearly defined, despite the fact that the bio-form image is much larger. The bluish/purple colouration as seen in (A) is much darker in comparison to (B). As mentioned previously, such colouration should not appear on the photograph at all due to the filter and white-balance settings.

Constable found a similar discrepancy with the accepted known origin of colour (22). In 1975 he managed to film unseen possible bio-forms from an airplane window at 30,000 feet, using a Minolta XL-400 movie camera he had set to shoot at 2 frames per second. The camera was loaded with standard Ektachrome 160 colour film, and fitted with an external 18A ultraviolet pass filter. This creates an artificial darkness during daylight hours. Although the 18A is predominantly an ultraviolet filter, it also passes a certain amount of infrared radiation as well, whilst blocking the visible light spectrum.  Constable found that using this set-up he was able to capture unseen life-forms in full colour (See Figure 13). This is despite the fact that the 18A filter is designed to block the visible light spectrum. He theorised that these colours were being created between the lens and the camera filter, and he called this mingling of these two invisible ends of the light spectra, the reverse or dark spectrum. It could be considered an, “orgonotic dark spectrum” whereby the orgone rather than light is reacting with the photographic process creating an otherwise unseen range of colour. This also indicates that the entities may possess very high orgone charges.

Figure 13 – Plasmoidal Bio-form in Full Colour

Above Figure 13 shows a possible invisible plasmoidal bio-form photographed by Constable from the window of an airliner in November 1975, at around 10.30am. The colour image was taken using a Minolta XL-400 Super 8mm movie camera loaded with standard Ektachrome 160 colour film, and fitted with an 18A ultraviolet pass filter, and was set to shoot at 2 frames per second. The 18A filter absorbs the visible light spectrum, whilst passing its two invisible ends – the infrared and the ultraviolet. This creates an artificial darkness during daylight hours, something Constable refers to as the “reverse” or “dark-spectrum” technique as noted previously. He theorized that the diffuse blue effect towards the top of image was probably due to illuminated orgone energy, connected in some way to the objects propulsion as it paced the airliner at 30,000 feet, at around 500 miles per hour. Constable saw nothing at the time of taking the photograph, and was shooting “blind” from the window of the airplane as he flew between San Jose and Long Beach. This photograph is featured on the front cover of Constable’s book, Sky Creatures – Living UFOs (23), which was a revised and re-edited pocket-sized version of The Cosmic Pulse of Life. A black and white version of this photograph also features in the Sky Creatures book as well as in the re-issue of The Cosmic Pulse of Life (24).

Figure 14 – Plasmoidal Amoeba-like Bio-forms around Street Lamp

Above Figure 14 shows three invisible possible amoeba-like bio-forms. They were photographed hovering in the vicinity of a street light near Hayes’ home, on September 24th 2017, at 10.37pm. The image was taken using an infrared converted Canon G10 digital camera, with an internal 720nm infrared pass filter, and exposure time was 1/60th second. The photograph was taken as a result of repeated Geiger counter indications, showing that radiation levels had reached and exceeded the 0.20 μSv/hr threshold set for detection purposes by Hayes (which is slightly over the normal background of approximately 0.09 to 0.12 μSv/hr usually found by the researcher). Occasionally Hayes has detected raised Geiger readings up to 0.5 μSv/hr for a few seconds immediately preceding the passing of a large bio-form. This reading then recedes fairly quickly within 1 to 3 seconds approximately.

Several photographs were taken at the location, but the objects only appeared in this one image. A standard camera flash has been used in combination with the infrared camera, and has lit up the bio-forms, making them register in the infrared. From nearly a decade of photographic work, both in the infrared and the ultraviolet, Hayes found that many of these types of phenomena, which are not self-illumined generally, require some type of illumination to register on cameras/camcorders. This can be sunlight (during daylight hours), the white-light of a standard camera flash, or an infrared/ultraviolet light source. Many more types of invisible phenomena are their own light source but require either sunlight, or any other type of light source to illuminate them further.

The same characteristic markings that are present on the other amoeba images, are also evident on the lower two bio-forms above, and these have been marked “A”, “B”, and “C”. The half moon-shaped bio-form has a brilliant radiance to it, and like the two lower examples, also has a similar layered effect, which is more prominent towards the outside edge. This layered effect can also be observed in Figure 12 (A) and (B).

Of interest is that Boccone’s GRCU team also documented such cases of possible invisible bio-forms hovering near streetlights at night. Time-lapse infrared photographs often revealed their luminous trails as they moved between lights, partaking in what Boccone describes as, ‘energy vampirism’ (25).

Figure 15 – Comparison of Bio-form’s Body Markings

Above Figure 15 shows the clear similarity between the markings that are present on the various possible bio-forms featured in this section. Figure 15, (A), (B), (C) and (D) show the round vacuole-like markings. However, (E) and (F) show the long finger-like markings that appear on the outermost edge of two of the bio-forms. (D) shows part of the amoeba-like bio-form photographed by Constable in the Mojave Desert in 1957 (26), and although these vacuole-like markings appear much fainter than the other examples, they are definitely present.

10. Bio-form Sizes

The anomalies photographed by Hayes appear in many different sizes but it is difficult to ascertain their exact dimensions. In many cases only a small part of a rooftop or the uppermost branches of a tree canopy provide a visual reference point within the scene.

A majority of the footage is also taken spontaneously as a result of rapidly changing Geiger readings. This makes it difficult to compose the shots beforehand to include multiple known reference points in order to triangulate the position and size of the anomalies. However, Hayes is considering further multiple camera research to address these difficulties and enable some basic triangulation of size.

The above issues are further complicated due to many of the possible bio-form’s high speed movement. They are also generally not fully self-illumined, with many only becoming visible to the lens of the infrared or ultraviolet camera when filmed reflecting sunlight from a certain angle. They are often only visible for a moment when they enter an “illumination zone” set up by Hayes. A rooftop is used to block the main body of sunlight but to allow illumination of the entities. Hayes calls this the, “sun obliteration technique”.

The above means the bio-forms can usually only be captured in specific locations and at certain angles. From years of intense research however, Hayes’s estimates the size of the bio-forms to range from as small as 20cms right up to 25 meters or more across, with the average being around a metre long. He considers that even larger examples, yet to be recorded, may exist in the atmosphere. 

11. British Evidence Conclusion

A summary of the highlights of nearly a decade of painstaking work has been detailed. Hundreds of hours of meticulous work have gone into each collection of photographs and videos. The quality revealed is at the very highest level and brings new evidence using the latest digital equipment. Overall, it supports claims as to the veracity of Constable’s orgonotic bio-forms.

Evidence of bio-forms has been detailed in the following categories:

  • Stereoscopic Video
  • Three Dimensionality
  • Plasma Movement
  • Complex Movement
  • Herd Movement
  • Chronological Existence
  • Biological Appearances
  • Anomalous Orgonotic Lumination in the Infrared.

The above has been detailed using high quality photographs, video stills and special video accompaniments (see References or Appendix 2 for links).

Multiple camera evidence of the same posited entity has been evidenced. This further supports claims as to the reality of the bio-forms and provides positive stereo type evidence. Artefacts would be unlikely to be seen on multiple cameras filming simultaneously.

As with Boccone’s and Collin’s findings discussed in Part One, Hayes’ anomalies were accompanied by environmental changes recorded on instrumentation. This was mainly a Geiger radiation reading indicating high oranur charge in the presence of the entities. Environmental changes occurring with the entities, also indicates their possible reality.

12. Overall Conclusion

The high quality evidence of Constable’s work and Boccone’s GRCU team as outlined in Part One of the paper, alongside Hayes’ striking new British evidence in Part Two, supports the existence of possible orgonotic bio-forms.

The evidence against the bio-forms has been shown to be lacking in quality and explainable as mistaken procedure. The artefact argument put forward to explain the bio-forms is also flawed. The anomalous nature of the entities is evidenced experimentally by Collins (27) and by Hayes and Boccone, due to the accompanying energy peak. This energy peak indicates a raised oranur charge associated with the entities. This presumably reflects increased orgonotic activity in the form of particulate or pre-particulate charged particles found within the Geiger counter when in the vicinity of the bio-forms.

As argued in the first part of the paper in Section 2, (Evidence Against the Bio-forms) mechanical anomalies do not look like the bio-form photographs, nor would they appear in clusters and additionally they are difficult to intentionally produce.

There is however supporting evidence of high quality, from the USA, Britain, Italy and some supplementary evidence from Romania in the following areas:

  • Stereoscopic video (Hayes)
  • Multiple camera evidence (Hayes, Boccone, Constable)
  • Three dimensionality
  • Plasma movement
  • Complex movement
  • Herd movement
  • Chronological continuity
  • Biological appearance

This paper therefore concludes that the evidence against Constable’s claims is poor and should be dismissed. The photographic evidence does not withstand scrutiny. The mechanical artefact theory is inadequate. The halations and air-bell theory does not explain the evidence.

The evidence supporting the existence of orgonotic bio-forms is in contrast of good quality and broad in range. It pertains from four different countries, a good number of researchers and commenced from the 1950s to the present day. It appears any such posited bio-forms would likely carry an oranur charge. Geiger radiation readings especially indicate a high oranur charge as discussed.

Although we have as yet not been able to find Boccone’s extensive archive, it is known that a number of multiple camera shots of the same entities were reported and were taken by the 25 person Italian team. Additionally, this paper has presented new multi-camera British video evidence of the same anomaly. Both Constable and Dr. Woods also reported photographing the same entities simultaneously.

The possible physical existence of bio-forms appears to be based upon living orgonotic plasma. This is evidenced by the interaction between the posited bio-forms and Reich cloudbusters as well as the instrumentation changes.

Tangentially, this research also supports the view that orgone itself is capable of supporting consciousness without a material boundary. Life may only require energetic parameters in order to manifest. Bio-forms, if real, appear to have pulsation, orgonotic plasma and a high orgone charge. In addition they may have an energetic boundary and would thus perhaps qualify as living from an orgonotic perspective (having living plasma, pulsation and an external border). Lastly, it is noted that they travel in the northern hemisphere from west to east, following the flow of orgone that Reich thought enveloped and rotated the Earth.

Nik Hayes is a UK based author and researcher. He first became interested in photographing invisible energetic phenomena after a low altitude encounter with a large, strange, visibly pulsating object on Christmas day, 2008. Unable to find a satisfactory explanation of what he had seen, he eventually discovered the work of Trevor James Constable, through his books The Cosmic Pulse of Life and They Live in the Sky (1).It was through this that he became aware of the work of the Italian research group, the GRCU, as well as Luciano Boccone’s rare book, UFO-La Realta Nascosta (2).

Influenced by this earlier work, Hayes began a quest to gather his own photographic evidence of invisible energetic phenomena. After designating a research area on some land adjacent to his house situated in countryside near Oxford, he constructed a cloudbuster, and began using infrared photography and movie footage. He spent much of the first year concentrating on the infrared part of the spectrum, but within a short time was also recording ultraviolet footage. He also used a Geiger radiation counter for energy peak detection purposes. Geiger counters are known to be reactive to orgone charge.

In 2011 Hayes created the Quest for the Invisibles (QFTI) YouTube channel, on which he uploaded videos of the various phenomena he had captured using infrared and ultraviolet recording equipment.

Hayes continued with his photographic work right through until the late summer of 2015, at which point he began compiling his research notes and photographic evidence into what would be published as Quest for the Invisibles by The Book Tree, California (3). Shortly after the publication of the book Hayes started the Quest for the Invisibles website (4). After the launch of the site Hayes began what would eventually form a two year photographic investigation into invisible night-time phenomena. He managed to photograph a whole range of apparently invisible phenomenon, not just in the skies, but also at a much lower altitude. Hayes has been interviewed on UK and internet radio and regularly gives talks about his work.

Leon Southgate MSc

From a family of psychotherapists and teachers I was introduced to orgonomy at a young age. As an adult my interest was rekindled, doing an MSc research degree in Chinese medicine and orgonomy. In 2002, a double blind, placebo controlled study was completed (N = 72). It confirmed an effect from orgone devices upon acupuncture (P = 0.03). An article about the study was published in the European Journal of Oriental Medicine in 2003. The theoretical side of the study outlined dozens of new parallels. It was later published as a book by German publishers LAP.

Southgate started an orgonomic PhD but the access to laboratory work became difficult so the project ended but a comprehensive (though not complete) Annotated Literature Review of the Post-Reich Journals was written and made available for free online.

Southgate is focused on examining orgone and its relationship to consciousness.

Positive Findings On Constable’s Orgonotic Bio-Forms


Positive Findings On Constable’s Orgonotic Bio-Forms

Part One: American & European Evidence

By Nik Hayes and Leon Southgate MSc

Editor’s comment,

The authors of this article revisit the work and findings of Trevor James Constable, and compared it with new data from Italian, US and Romanian researchers. When they were initially published, Trevor James Constable’s work was viewed with some skepticism in Orgonomy circles, and to some was considered unscientific, even mystical. The authors of this article invoke that skepticism with regard to Constable’s work. At the same time, the authors discuss new investigational findings that corroborate Constable’s own findings and results. In scientific and historical terms the article should hold interest for our readers. However the editor would like to emphasis the controversies surrounding Constable’s findings as well as recommend readers’ cautious discretion.

1.0 Synopsis and Introduction

1.1 Synopsis

Trevor James Constable, somewhat of a maverick even within orgonomy circles, claimed to have found evidence for plasmatic living forms in the atmosphere, living orgone entities. There has been a view within orgonomy that Constable’s claims have not been widely supported and that his claimed evidence has been shown to be flawed.

Part One of this paper will outline that Constable’s evidence was not dismissed satisfactorily. It describes key aspects of Constable’s US evidence from the 1950s. It also notes high quality but less known evidence from Italy and Romania from the 1980s.

Part Two will outline recent, substantial new British evidence.

The data as a whole is presented as supporting the proposal that plasmatic creatures may possibly be factual.

This first part of the paper is divided into the following sections:

  • Synopsis and Introduction
  • Summary of Orgonotic Qualities of Posited Bio-forms
  • Evidence Against the Bio-forms
  • Constable’s Evidence for Bio-forms
  • Italian and European Evidence for Bio-forms
  • Conclusion of US and European Evidence
  • References and Appendices.

1.2 Introduction

Trevor James Constable, a native New Zealander, first began his photographic pursuit of invisible entities in the Mojave Desert of Southern California in 1957. Having already developed a deep interest in invisible phenomena during the 1950s, Constable became particularly interested in cases where objects had been detected by radar, yet remained unseen to human sight.

Realising that the infrared portion of the spectrum adjoins the microwave spectrum, the portion of the spectrum in which radar operates, he decided to begin his search there. After initially experimenting with Kodak low-speed black and white infrared film, Constable eventually settled for the high-speed alternative. Although he would often use an 870 nanometre (nm) infrared pass filter in conjunction with the infrared film, he also took many photographs without it, with equally detailed results.

In the summer of 1957, Constable, along with friend and fellow researcher Dr. James Woods began driving at night to a remote area in the Mojave Desert between Yucca Valley and Old Woman Springs in Western USA. Once there they would set up camp, ready to begin their work at first light.

In order to attract the unknown entities to his position Constable would perform cyclical repetitions of the Star Exercise, an esoteric procedure by which the whole body and its life-force can be strongly energised. Performance of the exercise in this manner is thought to send a regular pattern of bio-energetic pulsations into the aether. Typically, Constable would stand on a large rock and perform the exercise, acting as a bio-energetic beacon, while Woods acted as photographer, although Constable also had a camera at the ready.

Constable would face the quadrant (north, south, east or west) in which the sun is closest at the time he commenced the exercise. For instance, in the morning before dawn he would face the east. Standing with legs apart and arms parallel to the ground, he would gently oscillate the body across the north – south and the east – west lines of the earth. In a sensitive person a warm sensation can then be felt in the palms of the hands, and in the region of the thymus at the point of resonance. These indications will help a person to "tune" into the magnetic and related fields of the earth.

Performing the Star Exercise involves finding this resonance point while facing east, then turning 180 degrees around to the right, and finding it again while facing west, then 90 degrees to the right and finding it while facing north, then 180 degrees to the right and finding it again while facing south. Constable would perform up to a hundred repetitions of the exercise at a time in order to attract unseen entities. This esoteric procedure is thought to create a concentration of life-force or orgone charge in the local atmosphere. This is then hoped to attract the posited entities (which are thought to be attuned to the increased orgone charge).

In order to objectify these objects, that he thought might be in the invisible state, Constable would use a technique learnt from his days in the US Merchant Marine, in which he served as a radio officer for 26 years. The technique was used for objectifying ships as they were coming over the horizon, and involved relaxing the eyes to a point where one looks past the sky, rather than actually at it. Using this simple method Constable found he could obtain impressions of otherwise invisible phenomena, such as flashes of light, or sometimes a shimmering variation in the otherwise blue sky. The authors have also found that this kind of "soft sight" is critical in observing orgonotic phenomena in the environment. Woods reported that he would often have a sour taste in his mouth when these objects were nearby. This could indicate an oranur effect as this is a known symptom of high oranur charge according to Reich (1). Oranur is an energy created when concentrated orgone is excited by a stimulus, for example by radioactive, electrical or mechanical means.

Upon later discovering the work of Dr Wilhelm Reich, through his daughter Eva Reich MD, Constable began building a cloudbuster based on the basic inventions of Dr. Reich, and on May 11th 1968 he began using it in place of the Star Exercise as an attraction technique. The cloudbuster is an array of parallel, hollow, metal tubes that are mounted on a turntable or some type of pivoting assembly. One end of the array of pipes is grounded into running water, while the other end is directed toward the atmosphere. Its use magnifies the differentials in the primary orgone energy field that may underlie atmospheric movement. This can precipitate changes in weather patterns. Orgone is attracted to water and moves toward higher concentrations of itself – a reversed entropy. Previously smooth fields of atmospheric orgone in the sky can be made to concentrate into eddies, or dissipate, depending on where the cloudbuster is aimed. Its operation also appears to affect other possible, more aetheric planes of existence.

1.3 Summary of the Possible Orgonotic Qualities of the Posited Bio-Forms

The posited bio-forms are thought to have the following orgonotic qualities:

  • Attraction to areas of higher orgone charge
  • Attraction to cloudbusters (cloudbusters may create an increased orgone charge in the local environment).
  • Demonstrating movement within the environmental orgone streams that Reich noted (west to east) (2).
  • A tube-like physiology of the posited bio-forms may reflect orgonotic flows (orgone flows within tubes in the orgonoscope, cloudbuster, DOR-buster and space-gun).
  • Responsive to consciousness (this assumes that Southgate’s orgone continuum theory is correct, see (3) for further on the continuum theory).

These areas will be explored in the paper.

2. Evidence Against Plasmatic Forms

Demeo

An article was published by Demeo claiming the dismissal of the existence of Constable’s plasmatic forms. Demeo notes that he had tried to reproduce Constable’s anomalies himself by taking infrared photos within proximity to a working cloudbuster. Demeo admits, ‘something unusual did register on the film’ (4). He acknowledges that orgone fields from his cloudbuster did affect infrared films.
However, elsewhere, Demeo puts forward a second hypothesis concerning the anomalies – that they are just mechanical camera artefacts (5). Demeo then concludes that Collin’s claimed stereoscopic pictures of a bio-form type anomaly – see below (6), showing differences in each frame, completely dismissed Constable’s claims.

Collins

Collins is an esoteric writer based in the UK. He aimed to recreate the high energy situations used by Constable in the original bio-forms research by having people meditate in groups and concurrently using a small Reich cloudbuster. This was in England in 1993 and 1994. Alongside the meditations and small cloudbuster, Collins had physical parameters measured, such as Geiger radiation counts. Photography was undertaken to try and detect unusual occurrences during the meditation sessions. In particular, Collins wanted to use stereo photography to examine Constable’s claims.

The stereo adaptor (Pentax Stereo Adaptor, early 1990s model) that Demeo thought Collins used on a single camera is intended for making 3D pictures from analogue film. Perhaps a manufactured twin lens camera or multiple camera evidence may have been a more reliable method of taking two exposures of the same environment simultaneously. Part Two of this paper will present new multi-camera British evidence. Multi-camera evidence is also known to have been collected by Italian researchers although we have not been able to locate it as yet.

In the picture of his experimental camera set up published by Collins, no stereo adaptor is in evidence. Rather, two cameras appear to be linked by cable to what looks like a hand-held dual timer (7). It is possible that the stereo pictures were taken by hand, using a dual timer, on two cameras. Some aspects of the picture in question suggest that this was the case as will be argued shortly.

Collins published a claimed stereo image reportedly taken at the exact same time showing different anomalies in each half frame (8). Demeo reproduced this image, calling it a ‘definitive’ dismissal of Constable’s bio-forms (9).

The authors have doubts about Collin’s photographic technique. He does not specifically outline that the stereo photographs were taken with the equipment that Demeo describes. Demeo states, ‘the "sky critter" theory was eventually disproven definitively in an experiment…using a stereo image camera, which takes two photos of the same film frame, using two separate lenses on the same camera box’ (10).

Technical wording to this effect does not appear in Collin’s book. However, in another separate section of the book he does describe obtaining a stereo adaptor. It is this adaptor which Demeo describes and assumes that Collins used. The actual photograph by Collins is of poor quality and this alone should cause it to be rejected as central evidence, but in addition. there are doubts as to its veracity.

Collins published a frame showing the camera set up presumably used for the stereo photographs. Collins had two tripods and two cameras set up connected, as described previously, by what appears to be a hand-held timer, though this is not actually stated (11). There are two cameras on tripods at different heights, about 2 feet apart in width and 1 foot apart in height. Neither camera appears to have the stereo attachment described by Demeo. An analogue timer, such as appears to be in the frame, could result in a tiny split second differential between the two photographs. This would depend on the types of camera used and their individual response and focusing times when activated by a common trigger mechanism (12).

Figure 1 – Hayes’ Sketch of Collin’s Claimed Stereo Image

Above in Figure 1, a sketch is shown of the stereo photographs in question (13). The sketches are an accurate representation of the photographs, showing the position of key features such as the group of people meditating (bottom right) and their angle in relation to both the horizon, and the edge of the grassy area they are sitting on. The positions of the multiple dark anomalies can be seen in the sky above the meditating people in Figure 1 (B). However, there is just one anomaly in Figure 1 (A) in the sky nearer the trees.  There is extensive dark smudging on the right hand side of (A) and also on the left hand side of (B).

The white arrows point to a noticeable difference in appearance concerning the shape of the tree branches in each frame. In (B) a definite bend can be seen in the branch, whereas in (A), this bend is not so apparent. This is probably the result of the branch being photographed at a slightly different angle in each shot, and could suggest that (A) was taken slightly further to the left of the tree than in (B), making the bend in the branch not so prominent in the photograph (due to the decreased angle of the shot).

It is also not clear that the position of the meditating people is exactly the same in each frame, the distance between them and the head and limb angles may not be exactly parallel. Attention is drawn to the position of the people meditating (highlighted by the purple arrows). Their position in relation to the right-hand side of the frame appears to change. In (A) there is a noticeable gap between the last person on the right meditating, and the actual right side edge of the picture. Yet in (B) the image of the people is cut off at the right-side edge. This shows that the centre point for each photograph may have been in a different place. It suggests that (A) was taken slightly further to the left than (B).

It can be clearly seen that the extreme left-hand side edge of (A) starts at the fourth tree to the left. Whereas in (B) the extreme left-hand side of the photograph continues further to the left of the fourth tree, but is ultimately obscured by the smudging. The trees also appear at slightly different angles and to be of slightly different sizes in the left and right frames. This suggests that one photograph was taken slightly further away. In (B) the image of the tree is cut off by the top of the photograph, whereas in (A) there is clearly a space above.

No reason is given why there is extensive smudging on the right side of (A) and the left side of (B). The environmental details of a stereo photograph should be identical on both sides and free of mechanically caused defects.

The anomalies themselves are poor grey blobs lacking in detail compared to work outlined in this paper yet they are presented as a centrepiece of evidence dismissing the bio-forms. It is not clear what exposure times and camera equipment had been used.

It is known from Hayes work (see Section 4) that the claimed bio-forms may be incredibly fast moving. According to Hayes’ approximate calculations, some bio-forms types may be travelling in the region of 140 mph (225 kph) and sometimes even faster. If there was even a tiny fraction of an instant between the shots being taken this could account for the anomaly differences in Collin’s frames. These types of phenomena are also known to blink in and out of the infrared in a fraction of a second, often only appearing in one shot when several are taken. One can see anomalies possibly moving from one frame to the other in one plate that Collins published (14). Also the anomalies seem to be in similar places in two further pictures which Collins does note (15). In Figure 1 above one can see that the anomaly marked, "A" could be the same anomaly in both frames but having moved several feet laterally within the exposure time.

There is also a stereo photograph published by Collins which does show the same images on each side of the stereo frames (16).  However this is described as a ‘fluke’ (17). But the same level of evidence dismissing Constable is taken as throwing ‘severe’ doubt not only on Constable, but also on Boccone and Reich’s work (18). Reich’s photographic experiments (19) involving the blocking of light reactions on analogue plates, caused by strong localised orgone fields, is not in the same category of phenomena as Constable, Boccone and Hayes’ environmental photographs. It is closer to Nordenstrum’s biological work (20). Collins is incorrect to claim its dismissal; his work is not relevant to Reich’s photography. One would have to show that apparatus claimed to produce orgone concentrations does not affect photographic equipment kept within that apparatus in order to counter Reich’s claims. This has not been done.

In the applicable section it is noted that Collins does not mention the exact equipment, exposure times, camera types and environmental information pertaining to the claimed stereo photographs.

Lastly, Collins has evidence which strongly supports Constable’s claims. This is because Collins other experimental data contradicts Demeo’s mechanical artefact argument. Collins found that his anomalies, statistically, were concentrated in groups and were accompanied by rises in other data such as increased Geiger radiation counts (21). Collins also noted that his intentionally produced defects did not in any way mirror the many actual anomalies he saw, (over 70 experimental anomalies in a short period of time) (22). So the ‘air bells’ or ‘halations’ artefact explanations of Demeo concerns something which happens only very rarely, if at all, in the normal processing of films (23). Air bells or halations are gaps in the chemical processing caused by air bubbles on the paper occurring during development. They are rare, difficult to cause, and when they do occur, they do not have the same appearance as Collin’s or Constable’s anomalies (24).

Conclusion

Demeo found that orgone concentrations affected infra-red photography (25). This supports the contention, shared by Reich, that orgone energy concentrations can be photographed.

Collin’s evidence against Constable’s claims is inconclusive photographically. His other experimental data, such as anomaly clusters and Geiger counts are actually supportive of Constable’s claims. It evidences something happening in the environment at the time of the anomalies. Collins therefore rejected a mechanical camera artefact basis to the phenomena. Some energetic or non-local process is causing the photographic anomalies in his view.

3. US Evidence for Plasmatic Entities – from Constable

Constable’s first capture of a posited invisible bio-form in the infrared came on the morning of 25th Aug 1957. Whilst sitting down for breakfast at his desert campsite, he sensed an overpowering pulsation above, and saw what he describes as a, ‘shimmering variation to the otherwise smooth blue background.’ (26).

Using his loaded Leica camera, he proceeded to photograph the invisible pulsation as it moved above him. He managed to capture the object in six successive frames as it moved from overhead to positions that permitted inclusion of the local desert terrain in the photographs (See Figure 2).

Constable and Woods were also able to capture infrared movie footage of invisible bio-forms using a movie camera and infrared film. Five frames of this footage appeared in The Cosmic Pulse of Life (27). In these consecutive frames, taken at 24 frames per second, the bio-forms can be seen moving above Constable during his performance of the Star Exercise in the Mojave Desert just before sunrise. The bio-forms appear to be splitting, changing shape and position, and also seem at one point to divide like amoebae. Constable concluded through his work that such materialisations into the infrared occur as a response to certain positions, motions and orientations of the, ‘target human’ (28).

Both Constable and Woods continued with their photographic work for many years, capturing dozens of examples of possible invisible bio-forms, both at their desert site, and above Mount Wilson, California. Their many infrared photographs showed a wide range of different examples of spherical, cigar-shape, ovoid, and disc-like invisible plasmatic forms. Constable would later state that only 1% of the total infrared photographs (taken when he had detected possible bio-forms being present) actually yielded any results. It is painstaking work.

Constable carried on with his photographic work away from the desert site, renting an office space in North Hollywood, California, from where he would perform the necessary attraction process prior to taking the infrared photographs. He took several photographs showing both the invisible bio-forms and apparent craft-like objects right over the North Hollywood Business District. The proximity of hundreds of workers within a few blocks argues against the idea that these objects were normally visible. He continued on with his solo work until 1979, before finally retiring from investigating the bio-forms to concentrate on weather engineering. He eventually went on to develop a marine, cloudbuster based, weather engineering system, which was later demonstrated on commercial video.

Figure 2 – Plasmoidal Amoeba-like Bio-form

Above Figure 2 (A) shows the amoeba-like invisible possible bio-form photographed by Constable, on the morning of 25th August 1957, in the Mojave Desert, California. This was the first photograph taken by Constable as the bio-form moved immediately above his position, and was taken using a Leica G 35mm camera loaded with Kodak High-Speed infrared film, and fitted with an 870nm infrared pass filter. The bio-form has markings resembling nucleoli and vacuoles, and has the general appearance of a unicellular organism from the microscopic world (29)

Above Figure 2 (B) shows the fourth in the series of infrared photographs taken by Constable as the bio-form moved from immediately above his position, and off above the desert. This enabled him to capture known desert features in the photograph, as well as giving an indication as to its true size. Throughout the series of photographs taken by Constable of the possible life-form, it is quite evident that the object appeared to swell and expand in size as it moves in a pulsatory manner. Many of the characteristic markings apparent in Figure 2 (A) above, are also visible in the other successive photographs. This demonstrates morphological continuity and development over time (30).

Figure 3 – Plasmoidal Amoeba-like Bio-form, Further Shots

The above Figure 3 shows the last infrared photograph of the series taken by Constable of the cell-like form, and indicates that the object or entities photographed were possibly living creatures. The upper entity seems to be of the same order as the amoeba-like invisible bio-form captured in the previous photographs published by Constable, and as shown in Figure 2. The lower of the two objects in Figure 3 however appears slightly different in shape, with two eye-like features, a concave face, and a protuberance highly suggestive of a beak or bill (31).

Figure 4 – Trevor Constable Surrounded by Invisible Plasmoidal Bio-forms

The above Figure 4 shows Constable in the Mojave Desert at sunrise, surrounded by what appears to be invisible plasmoidal bio-forms. This photograph was taken at 1/25th sec by James Woods on 26th April 1958, at 5am, using high speed infrared film. Both Constable and Woods objectified and photographed the invisible bio-forms independently of each other, with each taking multiple images of the same event (32). That so many anomalies would appear at the same time and on multiple cameras makes it very unlikely to be mechanical artefacts. Problems with the artefact explanation have also been detailed in Section 2.

The bio-forms appear to be contracting and expanding as they move through the air, only registering on the infrared film because their particular energy is nullifying the film’s emulsions rather than actually reacting with the film as is the normal case. This lack of emulsion reaction has created dark voids on the photograph. Some lighter areas can also be seen that are a direct result of the bio-forms movement as they expand within the 1/25th second exposure. Constable, as well as Boccone also reported instances where the images of these objects had burned themselves directly onto the infrared film despite the camera shutter being closed; manifesting between frames, albeit with diminished intensity (33). This may indicate, from an orgonomic viewpoint, that the possible bio-forms could have a very high oranur charge. Oranur, as an excited state of orgone, could have an enhanced photographic effect over an ordinary concentration of orgone. The posited entities themselves, as possible living forms, would likely have a significantly raised level of orgone compared to the environmental background. Any excited state of orgone possessed by the entities would itself qualify as oranur, due to oranur being simply stimulated orgone. This possible oranur quality has been noted instrumentally with raised Geiger counts associated with the passing entities by both Hayes and the Boccone team (34). The Geiger counts may reflect excited orgone (oranur) converting or partially converting into particles, which are then picked up by the Geiger counter. There is a period of approximately one or two seconds where an oranur charge might precede the immediate field or appearance of the posited bio-forms. This charge then quickly tails off within approximately 1 to 3 seconds, with radiation levels quickly returning to their usual background levels (see below). Hayes has also experienced some instances where these sudden high peaks have lasted a mere fraction of a second. The alarm had indicated that radiation levels had momentarily reached or exceeded the 0.20 microSieverts per hour (μSv/hr) threshold but the reading on the Geiger counter display would be unaltered at background levels. This indicates that the increased radiation, though picked up by the Geiger counter alarm, was very fleeting.

In instances where invisible energetic phenomena have manifested very close to his position, Hayes has sometimes noted instantaneous high peaks of between 0.30 and 0.50 μSv/hr, which have remained constant for up to 10 seconds at a time. Occasionally, it has taken up to 30 seconds for radiation readings to return to the normal background levels of between 0.09 and 0.12 μSv/hr.

Figure 5 – Plasmoidal Bio-forms above Mt. Wilson, California.

The above Figure 5 shows a possible group of invisible plasmatic bio-forms photographed above the summit of Mt. Wilson, California, by Constable in January 1959 (35). Photograph was taken using a Praktica FX-2 camera in combination with high-speed infrared film, and exposure was 1/100th second. According to Constable, objects like these that pulsate and change their form when sporadically visible, account for numerous UFO reports.

The location is approximately one mile from the famous observatory where Dayton Miller strongly evidenced the existence of aether. For this remarkable scientific achievement he was not lauded but rather was expunged from history (aether is similar to cosmic orgone conceptually). See Demeo for further information on Miller (36).

Figure 6 – Ovoid Bio-forms: Part 1

The above Figure 6 (A) shows a possible invisible ovoid bio-form, photographed at the first light of dawn above the rocky ridge adjoining Giant Rock, California, on May 17th 1958. The photograph was taken using a Leica G camera with high-speed infrared film and no filter, and exposure was 1/50th second (37).

The above Figure 6 (B) shows an invisible ovoid bio-form in motion, photographed above the summit of Mount Wilson, California, shortly after sunrise on April 28th 1961. The photograph was taken using a Practika FX-2 camera with high-speed infrared film and no filter, and exposure was 1/50th second. (38).

This photograph is a good example of how objects like this, which probably carry very high orgonotic charges, reproduce on photographic prints in a reversed polarity. This gives an appearance of an absorptive image as in the above case. Such objects are nullifying the photographic emulsions rather than reacting with them as is the normal case.

Figure 7 – Ovoid Bio-forms: Part 2

The above Figure 7 (A) shows a posited invisible ovoid bio-form photographed at 1/1000th sec by Constable using high-speed infrared film, as it moved above the Los Angeles business district at noon during his early trials using an 18A pass filter. The 18A is designed to block the visible light spectrum, while passing both of its invisible ends namely, infrared and ultraviolet; Kodak high-speed infrared film is also sensitive in the UV region. Constable captured multiple infrared photographs showing ovoid-shaped invisible bio-forms during his work, and several of these, including the above photograph appear in the 2008 re-issue of Constable’s book, The Cosmic Pulse of Life (39).

The above Figure 7 (B) was taken by Constable’s 11 year old daughter Diana, who had accompanied him on a weather engineering cloudbusting operation out to Thousand Palms, California, in May 1975. Constable had trained her to objectify and take photographs using a more energetic or "aetheric" type of sight.

As he worked the cloudbuster she sensed and then photographed this invisible bio-form close to the cloudbuster pipes, using a half-frame Olympus camera loaded with high speed infrared film, and fitted with an 18A filter (40).

4. Italian Evidence for Orgonotic Bio-forms

Luciano Boccone was president of the Italian research group GRCU (Gruppo di Ricerche Clipeologiche ed Ufologiche) who were based in Arenzano, Italy, and consisted of some 25 members. The group began their work in 1976, and along with CUN Prato and GORU La Spezia were the third Italian UFO research group to begin instrumental research into the infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum, and among the first to capture claimed entities direct from their invisible state. Boccone was also a member of CUN (Centro Ufologico Nazionale) Italy’s major centre for such studies, and a contributor to CUN’s official magazine, Notiziario UFO.

GRCU Research Methods

The GRCU used a wide range of standard, high quality scientific instruments such as Geiger counters, precision magnetic compasses, temperature indicators, frequency measurements (electromagnetic and light), light, ultrasound and ultraviolet detectors, as well as infrared, panchromatic, and colour films in sophisticated gun-cameras, and cameras fitted with focal distance doublers or telephoto lenses.  Sometimes these cameras would be fitted with 25A, 87 or 89 filters, although most infrared photographs were taken with no filter.

Whenever the instruments warned of any sudden peaks in radioactivity and/or magnetic field, air, temperature, or luminosity, photographs would immediately be taken in the same direction in which the variations were detected. This simple procedure allowed them to objectify and photograph a whole range of invisible phenomena, not just in the sky, but also at much lower altitude, as well as at ground level, both day and night.

From the considerable experimentation done by the group over many years, it was found that manifestations pertaining to a possible invisible realm were objectified in most cases when the Geiger ionising radiation counter started reading and exceeding 0.20 milliRoentgens per hour (mR/hr) or about 2.0 μSv/hr equivalent – an unusually high peak reading for the normal background environment. Additionally, another sign was when the compass needle would deviate from the magnetic north, if only by a few degrees. Through the course of their work it was found that sudden high peaks in radiation levels were often accompanied by magnetic deviations. The levels of these fluctuations were on average between 10 – 15 degrees. Deviations of up to 50 degrees were also recorded by the group (41).  In some cases where the researchers employed a temperature indicator in conjunction with the other devices (such as Geiger counters and a magnetic compass), a simultaneous rise in the local temperature of up to 5 degrees Celsius was found to coincide with the high radiation readings and magnetic deviations (42). This hitherto unacknowledged evidence indicates a very interesting cross confirmation of Reich’s orgone temperature experiments, termed TO-T for Temperature Orgone versus Temperature Control.

Dr Blasband overviews Reich’s T0-T studies and recounts further evidence in the following Journal of Orgonomy paper (43). Not only do orgone cabinets appear to increase thermal temperature but the presence of highly orgone charged posited entities also appears to have a similar effect.

Southgate has additionally confirmed, in recent experimentation, that concentrated oranur charge deflects magnetic needles and increases ambient temperature (44).

GRCU Evidence

The GRCU obtained a large catalogue of extensive and detailed photographic evidence documenting the presence of possible invisible plasmatic bio-forms, both in the sky, and at much lower altitude. In 1979 the GRCU released much of this photographic evidence in their report: The Invisible UFO Evidence: July 1977 – June 1979. This report was a condensation of their previous reports: UFO Report – 1977 and UFO Dossier-1978 plus selected files taken from their photographic work of 1979. This evidence consisted of 140 infrared, panchromatic, and colour photographs of the most significant, instrumentally-detected invisible phenomena captured by the group between 1977 and 1979.

In 1980 Boccone released the best of the above photographic evidence in his book UFO – La Realta Nascosta (UFO – The Hidden Reality) (45). This extremely rare publication also presents a whole range of photographic evidence gathered by not just the GRCU, but also from other sources including CUN Geneva, CUN Prato, and Romanian researcher Professor Florin Gheorghitza. The 142 page A4 sized book contains around 200 photographs, both colour and black and white, showing invisible, glowing, pulsating plasmatic forms, and amoeba-like possible life-forms, capable of changing shape, size, density, luminosity, arrangement and position in a split second. The authors have been fortunate to have access to this rare book.

Several infrared exposures captured by the Boccone team show the vivid, stark, pulsatory tracks made by apparently plasmatic forms as they traverse the skies at low altitude. In some instances the glow from the invisible objects can be seen illuminating the terrain over which they are moving. Others show plasmatic forms descending to street lamps, blinking at low altitude over the port of Genoa, or hovering above the Corigliano integrated steel plant of Italsider, adjacent to Cristoforo Colombo International Airport.

Night-time, time-lapse photography revealed seemingly plasmatic bird-like invisible forms, flying low in the sky above Arenzano, Italy, and a snake-like plasmoidal form moving at ground-level near a forest fire. Other photographs show fire-like invisible entities with antennae-like features, captured on colour infrared film as they appear to manifest just above the cameramen. Additional footage shows hexagonal-shaped light-forms, and plasmatic spheres etching their trails into the film’s emulsions as they move unseen across the night sky.

Figure 8 – Daytime Plasmatic Entity

The above Figure 8 shows a posited daytime plasmatic invisible body, photographed at very low altitude in the sky above Bangkok in 1979 using colour infrared film. The object, whose profile is almost identical to the "critters" (amoeba constabliani) first posited by Constable in the Mojave Desert back in the late 1950s, consists of an elongated ellipsoidal nucleus of dark black/brown colour, and its proto-plasmatic field is semi-transparent red and chrome yellow. The dirigible shape of the bio-form consists of an elongated ellipsoidal nucleus of a dark brown/black colour, and its proto-plasmatic field is semi-transparent red and chrome yellow. Much closer examination reveals that the bio-form’s movement has left a very light yellowish horizontal trail in the sky, suggestive of a shift of the body in the atmosphere from left to right (46).

Figure 9 – Plasmoidal Forms Multiplying

The above Figure 9 shows invisible plasmoidal forms manifesting from a ball of light. This 40 second exposure was taken in Italy on 29th October 1977, at 10.50pm, using black and white infrared film in combination with a 25A Vivitar infrared pass filter. The presence of these plasmoidal forms, which were some 40 metres away from the researchers when photographed, were objectified using a Geiger radiation counter, as well as a magnetic compass which showed a magnetic deviation of 10-15 degrees south east per 10 minutes (47).

Figure 10 – Plasmoidal Forms

Above Figure 10 shows possible plasmatic bio-forms photographed by the GRCU at their research base near Genoa, Italy. These blue and white plasmatic forms were captured using colour infrared film, on a January night in 1981, after their presence was detected by multiple instruments including Geiger counters, infrared and magnetic detectors, as well as a Swiss orgonotester instrument. This was an electrical orgone device developed by Dr Walter Stark and tested over some years by Dr Blasband. It claims to measure an orgonotic form of electrical current flowing in organisms and the atmosphere. Dr Stark called this a Motional Electrical Field or MEF and which, unlike other types of electrical field, and in similarity to orgone, is not able to be shielded (48). This has parallels to Russian torsion fields or to the "scalar" types of claimed quasi-electrical waves which are also said to be unable to be shielded. Orgone energy seems similar, not only to torsion fields, but also to the radiant energy discovered by the late Tesla (49).

Dozens of mutually corroborative photographs were taken using multiple cameras during the above incident. This strong photographic evidence shows multiple plasmoidal forms as they moved above the trees and began rolling down the hillside, skimming along the grass and among the researcher’s cars and equipment. This photograph did not appear in Boccone’s book, UFO – La Realta Nascosta, although it was later published in the 2008 re-issue of Constable’s book The Cosmic Pulse ofLife (50).

That this incident of life-like, moving and environmentally interactive multiple plasmatic forms was captured in significant detail and from a number of angles by more than one camera simultaneously indicates that the entities could be real and not artefacts produced within a single camera.

Figure 11 – Plasmoidal Bio-Forms Hovering above Blast Furnace

Above Figure 11 shows a large group of possible invisible plasmoidal bio-forms hovering above the integrated steel plant of Italsider at Genoa-Corigliano, Italy, on August 19th 1977, at 10.30pm. A member of Boccone’s GRCU group took this 40 second time-lapse exposure using unfiltered infrared film, despite the fact that nothing was visible at the time. The photograph gives the impression that the bio-forms are drawing upon the massive energy of the blast furnace, which is adjacent to the Cristoforo Colombo International Airport. The GRCU photographic record documents many instances of such behaviour, especially the attachment of these bio-forms to street lamps and similar energetic focal points (51).

Additional Romanian Evidence for Bio-forms

Romanian engineer and professor Florin Gheorghitza took numerous infrared photographs of possible invisible bio-forms during his work in the late 1970s in Romania.  Although Gheorghitza was an acquaintance of Boccone’s, his photographic work in a similar vein was independent of the Italian research group. It provides further evidence that reveals the possible reality of invisible plasmoidal bio-forms, not just in the skies, but also at ground level.

Figure 12 – Huge Glowing Plasmoidal Entity

Above Figure 12 shows a plasmoidal bio-form photographed using high-speed infrared film by Prof. Florin Gheorghitza near Cluj-Napoca in Romania, in September 1977. The huge size of this bio-form can be judged from the adjacent road circling left of the object. The glow emanating from the form can be seen illuminating both the road, as well as parts of the terrain where the object is positioned. This night-time photograph appeared in Boccone (52) and also in Constable(53). The intriguing infrared image points to the possible orgonotic nature of the invisible bio-form evident from the glowing radiation. It also captures the immense size that some of these entities may reach.

Summary of US and European Evidence

The photographic, instrumentally based documentation presented in Boccone’s book (54) positively confirms Constables, and Woods’ earlier photographic evidence. The photographs of invisible plasmoidal forms are practically identical in shape, size, and density to the specimens captured in the Mojave Desert. Other evidence captured by the other Italian research groups, CUN Geneva, and CUN Prato, as well as by Romanian Professor Gheorghitza (55) also supports the presence of orgonotic bio-forms in the atmosphere.

That these various researchers captured similar plasmatic forms, independently of each other, and at different times and locations not only in the USA, but in Italy, and Romania, is worthwhile evidence. These objects were repeatedly picked up by multiple instrumental detections, including Geiger radiation counters, magnetic compasses, thermometers and light detectors, prior to the infrared photographs being taken. Therefore the idea that they are merely artefacts or smudges on the photographs is not supported.

There appears to be broad, detailed, single and multiple camera photographic evidence of the existence of the claimed invisible bio-forms. There is in addition radiological and environmental evidence of a simultaneous energy peak from the Italian researchers. The movement, behaviour and morphology of the entities appear to follow set patterns. Altogether this does suggest that the anomalies could be real.

Nik Hayes

Nik Hayes is a UK based author and researcher. He first became interested in photographing invisible energetic phenomena after a low altitude encounter with a large, strange, visibly pulsating object on Christmas day, 2008. Unable to find a satisfactory explanation of what he had seen, he eventually discovered the work of Trevor James Constable, through his books The Cosmic Pulse of Life and They Live in the Sky (1).It was through this that he became aware of the work of the Italian research group, the GRCU, as well as Luciano Boccone’s rare book, UFO-La Realta Nascosta (2).

Influenced by this earlier work, Hayes began a quest to gather his own photographic evidence of invisible energetic phenomena. After designating a research area on some land adjacent to his house situated in countryside near Oxford, he constructed a cloudbuster, and began using infrared photography and movie footage. He spent much of the first year concentrating on the infrared part of the spectrum, but within a short time was also recording ultraviolet footage. He also used a Geiger radiation counter for energy peak detection purposes. Geiger counters are known to be reactive to orgone charge.

In 2011 Hayes created the Quest for the Invisibles (QFTI) YouTube channel, on which he uploaded videos of the various phenomena he had captured using infrared and ultraviolet recording equipment.

Hayes continued with his photographic work right through until the late summer of 2015, at which point he began compiling his research notes and photographic evidence into what would be published as Quest for the Invisibles by The Book Tree, California (3). Shortly after the publication of the book Hayes started the Quest for the Invisibles website (4). After the launch of the site Hayes began what would eventually form a two year photographic investigation into invisible night-time phenomena. He managed to photograph a whole range of apparently invisible phenomenon, not just in the skies, but also at a much lower altitude. Hayes has been interviewed on UK and internet radio and regularly gives talks about his work.

Leon Southgate MSc

From a family of psychotherapists and teachers I was introduced to orgonomy at a young age. As an adult my interest was rekindled, doing an MSc research degree in Chinese medicine and orgonomy. In 2002, a double blind, placebo controlled study was completed (N = 72). It confirmed an effect from orgone devices upon acupuncture (P = 0.03). An article about the study was published in the European Journal of Oriental Medicine in 2003. The theoretical side of the study outlined dozens of new parallels. It was later published as a book by German publishers LAP.

Southgate started an orgonomic PhD but the access to laboratory work became difficult so the project ended but a comprehensive (though not complete) Annotated Literature Review of the Post-Reich Journals was written and made available for free online.

Southgate is focused on examining orgone and its relationship to consciousness.

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 terms of a small increase in electrical tension in chemical batteries and electronic capacitors placed within the device. Other possibly anomalous reports are noted such as small changes in radioactivity, temperature, magnetism, luminescence and subjective observations associated with the device.

Introduction:

The long term research goal is the examination of orgone and consciousness.

It was assumed that future experimentation would involve high orgone concentrations and possibly self-generation of small amounts of electrical tension. This first experimental step therefore was to investigate high orgone concentrations and the possibility of any self-generated electrical activity within a strong orgone accumulator (ORAC). As radioactivity is thought to be the strongest activator of orgone (1), oranur or (orgone versus nuclear) energy was studied through the ORAC.

Experimental Device

An approximately 6 foot by 3 foot human-sized ORAC cabinet was placed horizontally. At first the door was removed and placed underneath the cabinet to give extra layering. Putting the cabinet back upright was tried but this decreased the charge by approximately 20% according to a Heliognosis Life Energy (LE) meter device. It also made placing of the internal items difficult. The cabinet was put back on its side. Eventually, the door was put back on.

Inside the cabinet there was placed one, and then two large 2 foot square orgone accumulating boxes with one side removed (originally developed for orgone acupuncture). A suitcase of accumulating materials was added alongside two orgone blankets and another two smaller orgone boxes. The large orgone box had two orgone tubes pointed at it. Altogether approximately 12 orgone devices were inside the larger ORAC cabinet. This was done to create a strong orgone field but also to create synergy between devices and hopefully a flow of orgone, one device would activate another so increasing the overall charge. Reich believed a central characteristic of orgone was interaction between energy systems (2).

The inner boxes were made of steel, rockwall and celotex type panels on a wood frame – standard materials for an ORAC. The orgone suitcase was filled with insulating rockwool and steel wool layers and had an outer layer of aluminium foil and then lastly plastic clingfilm around the outside. The orgone tubes were steel tubes with 300 plus double layers of aluminium foil and clingfilm, based on Bernd Senf’s design for orgone acupuncture tubes (3). The cabinet was made of the standard ORAC materials similar to the inner boxes.

1. Electrical Experiments:

Orgone Charging of Rechargeable Chemical Batteries

A rechargeable AA size battery of some years of non-use was put within the inner box of the orgone device. It was covered in orgone layering (plastic and aluminium foil) and one month passed. This was in the autumn of 2017 and the charge in the device appeared to be increasing. A small amount of radioactive americium was used with the intention of activating the orgone device. The americium was within a smoke alarm and was kept intact within the body of the alarm. The amount was 0.9 microCurie or 0.26 mcg of americium-241. As the americium was being gradually moved closer to the orgone device during the battery charging, both subjective impressions (a feeling of ‘density’, ‘skin tingling’ and ‘sun tans’) and objective readings (LE and Geiger meters) showed an increasingly higher charge from the device over the period of the battery charging. The weather was also warmer and drier at this time (compared to the later experimental periods over the winter-time).

The first battery was not expected to show any changes so prior measurements on it beforehand were not done. The only test was to put it in a clock (which it wouldn’t run before the orgone charging). The battery was many years old and hadn’t been recharged for a long time. It had been stored at room temperature for years in dry conditions. After a month of orgone charging it ran the same clock for several days. Then when it stopped running the clock, after further orgone charging, it continued to run the clock for some hours.

A second long-flat AA sized battery also began to run the clock after orgone charging for some days. The batteries that ran the clock were now tested with voltmeters and were at approximately 700 millivolts (mV) or less than half of capacity.

Next, a larger old rechargeable battery, a D in UK sizes, was checked with two voltmeters, both confirming it was at zero mV. It had orgone layering put around it (plastic and aluminium foil), and was placed within the inner orgone box of the device. Over a period of 1 week it gained charge daily before levelling out to around half of capacity (it peaked at 630mV). This battery was tested beforehand and then daily. At first there were small flashes only on the voltmeter then it climbed steadily from 400mV to 610mV. It peaked some weeks later at 630mV. Sometimes it would lose mV when removed from the orgone device and then regain it when replaced over the next few weeks.

Apparent recharging of the batteries however could simply occur by a known rebound effect whereby empty batteries bounce back up to about ⅓ to ½ of capacity. However with the batteries used so far this appeared to be an unlikely explanation as they were many years old and most likely stable at zero or low mV due to their age and having not been used for a long time. There were also no sudden environmental changes as the batteries had been stored and then orgone charged at room temperature.

To clarify the rebound issue new rechargeable batteries were obtained and attempts made to get them stable at zero mV, which is actually more difficult than it would appear. The rebound process is quite strong in new batteries, to the extent that the query came to mind as to whether chemical batteries use a level of orgonotic charge normally. As soon as they are zeroed they pull back mV charge to about ⅓ of capacity. It is not perhaps entirely clear that this is solely a chemical phenomenon. Such batteries are like a chemical ORAC in some ways, with their internal metal electrodes, surrounded by chemical electrolyte in a metal and plastic layered casing. Modern rechargeable batteries are using novel materials to make recharging even quicker and easier. Perhaps they are in part using an unknown orgonotic effect.

After some weeks of trying various methods a few new batteries were stable at zero. A small light bulb circuit or battery-operated hair clipper had been used to run the charge down. In some cases they had to be short circuited with bell wire from the terminals to reduce the last few mV of charge. They were then orgone charged in the device. However now it seemed difficult to repeat the possible effects seen the first three times. Perhaps an unknown combination of factors, some unknown, had enabled the earlier batteries to gain charge. The first D battery particularly seemed to gain a noticeable amount of potential in mV each day, but still it was thought that the electrical conversion of orgone into electricity was at a relatively low level. Even a USB battery charger would supply at least 300mV so the estimation of 10-30mV continual conversion in the orgone device is not going to be at a level with which it would be easy to achieve an effect on chemical batteries.

Both AA batteries were attempted to be charged whilst still in the clock by placing the battery run clock within the orgone device. However this did not appear to work, apart from producing a stutter of the hands once the battery had run down. It seems the batteries may not be able to gain charge and discharge energy effectively at the same time. One aspect of the process appears to take precedence over the other. This might make sense according to Reich’s Four Beat energy formula. The charge and discharge processes are quite distinct aspects of the overall Four Beat formula that Reich claimed to be universal in organisms and partly true of mechanical systems:

  • Tension
  • Charge
  • Discharge
  • Relaxation.

Future Experimentation

To repeat the experiment as described here one would have to not connect a load to the battery whilst charging it. Also one would have to use as high an orgone charge as feasibly possible and proximal orgone layering in addition to that. The low level radioactive activation may also be a required element. Reich often found that to orgone charge something effectively the orgone layers had to be near the object, for example he used metal shielding immediately around his Geiger tubes and ORACs were built according to the size of the organism to be charged, mice had special small ORACs and humans had human-sized ORACs. Glass seems to provide the strongest ‘condensation’ of orgone as shown in Reich’s work with the Geiger tubes and the orgone motor. So a glass ORAC container for batteries or capacitors might provide an avenue to explore.

The experimenting with chemical batteries is ongoing (both orgone charging from zero mV and orgone charging from previously part mV – see below). It might take some months or even years to regain the possible effects seen in the first three batteries, if at all. Also the peak charge of the orgone device has been purposefully allowed to decrease a little.

Pyramid Research and Electrical Capacitance

It has been noted that pyramids may have a charging effect on batteries. Modern Russian large pyramid research also reports an electrical capacitance effect although the synopsis articles do not describe it in any detail (4). Older Western literature on pyramids describes poorly controlled pilot experiments using batteries that have not been previously stabilised at zero mV. However, an increase in the ‘rebound’ effect after pyramid charging batteries has been noted in various popular 1980s books, for example in King’s book (5).

Reading the pyramid research prompted some ideas that might be applicable. This author has questioned elsewhere whether the architectural design of Reich’s orgone motor produced amplification rather than a simple creation of electricity (6). As previously noted, Reich emphasised that orgonotic phenomena need an interaction between orgone systems in order to occur. This suggests that another way to examine any chemical battery effect might be to take relatively stable but non-zeroed batteries, perhaps with a couple of hundred mV in charge, and then to orgone charge the test batteries whilst keeping the controls in a similar light, temperature and static charge environment without additional orgone charge. With this experimental procedure there would be an initial electrical charge for attempted amplification via the orgone system. Also, the electrical charge of the test batteries might interact with the orgone device creating an enhancement effect.

As noted, pyramids have been thought to have an electrical capacitance effect. Seiler, a Swiss orgone researcher did not examine electrical capacitance but in the 1980s researched if ORACs in the shape of pyramids may enhance orgonotic effects. No effects were found (7). However this is what this author would expect. From what can be ascertained this author’s view is that pyramids act foremost as a transformation device somewhat like an orgone transistor. ORACs might rather be capacitors of orgone energy. One might see an increase in orgone charge therefore when an ORAC is placed within a pyramid rather than a change when an ORAC is shaped into a pyramid. The latter approach might confuse effects by mixing different functions (capacitance and transformation). Russian researchers avoid metal in their pyramids so perhaps these aspects are already known in some way to those scientists.

Amplifying Electrical Charge Experiments

The first pilot experiment in this area – amplifying charge in chemical batteries, appears to tentatively support this idea. A number of batteries were checked for stability of charge for three days, at room temperature. They were mostly around 100mV or just below. Two of the D sized batteries and an AA battery were put in the orgone device and one D battery in a comparable control environment. The orgone D sized batteries gained 100% of charge in a week. The control D battery gained 50% of its original charge in the same time. The orgone charged AA battery only gained 2 mV in the same period which was about 3% of its original charge.

Further preliminary studies are obviously needed with this aspect. Aside from the above preliminary experiment, a number of part-charged batteries were placed within the orgone device on an informal basis to get an idea of what effects may be occurring. They were not strictly controlled for prior fluctuations or ‘rebound’. It is interesting to note though that most appeared to gain charge at a steady but modest rate suggesting something is perhaps happening. Any effect is by no means even however, sometimes it appears to tail off and other times it appears stronger, perhaps connected to wider environmental conditions.

Figure 3

Orgone Part-charged Batteries (OPC) Versus Control Part-Charged (CPC) Batteries

All the charts in this article describe approximate indications of values to give an indication of the relationship between various variables.

Rebound Effects

Rebound of new batteries on the other hand tends to happen quickly and predictably (within minutes) and the empty battery jumps back to about a third of capacity in the author’s experience (from a few hundred mV or less) and then stays at that level for some time. This rebound effect doesn’t appear to happen with older, stable batteries. The effects in the orgone device on the other hand appeared to be a steady gaining of charge of up to about 50 to 100 mV a day rather than the big jumps seen with rebound in newer batteries. Mostly used older batteries were utilised when the possible charging effects from orgone were seen. The bigger D batteries seem to gain charge more easily than smaller AA batteries. Further experiments with large batteries could be useful. Perhaps the increased area and quantity of electrolyte or increased metal surface area in the larger batteries enhances the orgonotic interaction. The level of initial electrical tension is likely to be instrumental too. The D and C size batteries appear to be the most promising currently.

Looking back on the data it appeared that the possible battery charging from zero occurred when the orgone device was reaching a peak due to the oranur aspects and possibly the autumnal weather being more conducive than the later winter weather. Oranur energy is created when radioactive materials trigger the orgone energy into higher activity and is the strongest trigger of orgone according to Reich (8). In the autumn the weather is also sunnier and drier than the winter and therefore more conducive to higher orgone charges.

Figure 4

Rebound Versus First Three Orgone Charged Batteries

The rebound effect is actually sharper than is shown here and usually occurs in minutes rather than over a day. ‘Org D’ is the first D sized battery that appeared to recharge in the orgone device, ‘Org 1&2’ refers to the first two AA batteries which ran the clock after orgone charging.

Electronic Capacitor Experiments

An electrical engineer suggested the use of electronic capacitors in order to bypass the problems with excluding rebound in chemical batteries. Electronic capacitors were envisaged by this author as being easier to orgone charge than chemical batteries because they are simpler and non-chemical based. Also it is noted that they are already a mini-ORAC, being a plastic outer shell with two metal plates inside (the electrodes) with non-conducting material sandwiched between layers of metal. So there is metal/die-electric layering as in an ORAC. This is illustrated in Figure 5.

Figure 5

Electronic Capacitor

The inside of a capacitor is similarly layered to an ORAC, the dielectric, non-conducting layer is noted to be similar to the organic layer of an ORAC.

Figure 6

Electronic Capacitors in Experiment

Capacitors in a plastic box ready for orgone charging or use as controls.

After informally charging a number of capacitors to see how they might react to environmental factors, the first orgone-charged versus control set of capacitors was set up controlling temperature, light and static conditions. The capacitors required zeroing via short circuiting before experiments could be started (a small length of bell wire was attached to the positive and negative terminals of capacitors for between 10 seconds and 2 minutes depending on how long it took to zero the electrical tension).

The first preliminary experiment was in October 2017 and used just two identical capacitors, one test and one control. They were both kept at a similar room temperature, light and static conditions. The mV readings were measured daily. The experimental capacitor was consistently slightly more than double the tension of the control capacitor. The voltage of both orgone charged and control capacitors gradually increased daily but at a greater rate in the orgone capacitor.

The second set of capacitor experiments involved 10 assorted electronic capacitors in two plastic containers. All capacitors had been zeroed before the experiment began with bell wire attached to the positive and negative terminals. The sixth capacitor in the first box had a small paper flag attached to it in order to see if this would attract extra charge. The second box of capacitors had two capacitors in it, one with proximal orgone layering and one without layering. Altogether between box 1 and box 2 there were 10 capacitors. All the capacitors were naked apart from the 10th capacitor which had proximal orgone layering.

The range of tension measurements after the experimental period was between 1.1 and 94 mV in both orgone and control groups. The 6th capacitor in box 1 (with the paper flag attached) behaved differently to the other capacitors. It gained more charge when it was acting as control than when it was within the orgone device. All the other capacitors in the orgone test group however gained more mV than the control group (between 2 and 20 mV averaging around 15 mV gain over the controls). The 10th capacitor, the proximal orgone-layered capacitor in the second plastic box, behaved slightly differently. It gained only a little more in the orgone group than in the control environment. However its immediate neighbour seemed to attract much more charge gaining 15.8 mV in the orgone device compared to only 1.9 mV outside it.

A third set of capacitor experiments were undertaken again using 10 capacitors in two plastic boxes (8 capacitors in the first larger box and 2 capacitors in the second smaller box). All capacitors were zeroed before the experiments began. The plastic boxes were then placed either within the orgone or control areas according to the phase of the experiment. The first plastic container had 8 assorted capacitors of various electrical capacities as in the previous run. The second smaller plastic box contained the capacitor with the proximal orgone layering and the neighbouring capacitor without layering, again as in the previous run. The plastic containers which held the capacitors were put inside the inner box of the orgone device or in the control environment depending on the part of the experiment being conducted (in the previous run the orgone capacitors had been in the outer part of the orgone device).

The orgone charged capacitors were all higher in this run of the experiment. The small paper flag had been removed from the sixth capacitor in the first box and this then responded in the same way as the other capacitors. Also in the second smaller plastic box, both the proximal orgone-layered capacitor and its immediate neighbour more clearly outperformed the other capacitors with both doubling their charge compared to control. The other capacitors all gained charge compared to controls of between 1 and 22 mV, it seems one capacitor will ‘hog’ the charge from its neighbours gaining a much bigger differential than the others. The increase was in the same range approximately to the first run.

A fourth set of capacitor experiments was undertaken. This time the temperature and light were better controlled within about 1/10th of a degree centigrade. The light and static electrical conditions were similar. In order to get the conditions more exactly matched the same building was used, a stand-alone brick garage. All the electrical experiments apart from the first run with just two capacitors were conducted with the orgone device in this building.

It had been noted that the field of the orgone device might extend 18 foot or more (affecting both sets of capacitors). This was suspected as it appeared that batteries kept some distance from the device were not losing charge normally but a confirmation of this experimentally had not been obtained. Also subjective impressions made one aware of an extended field.

The orgone and control groups were therefore put as far apart as possible (about 12-14 foot). The orgone device was toward the right hand corner of the garage and the controls were kept in an identical plastic container in a dark wooden cupboard in the far left hand corner of the garage. The orgone group plastic box was also given proximal orgone layering by wrapping the box in layers of foil and plastic clingfilm. Four capacitors of different size but identical between the orgone and control groups were used without any proximal orgone layering immediately around the capacitors in both orgone and control groups. A single orgone capacitor reading had to be discarded as the capacitor had come loose and was short circuited on the metal layering inside the plastic box, this was corrected and the experiment continued. After 24 hours the orgone capacitors were at least four times higher than the controls. Over the next few days this differential gradually evened itself out until after a week the mV charges were approximately the same in both groups though most were slightly higher in the orgone group overall. This may indicate that the electrical influencing field of the orgone device may reach at least 12-14 foot but that it is stronger nearer the device. Different sized capacitors appear to behave in a varied manner when orgone charged. Hence the need was felt for a mixture of capacitor strengths in each group, orgone and control. However orgone and control capacitors were always exactly matched between the groups.

A fifth set of capacitor results are worth detailing. The author was curious as to whether a group of capacitors would behave differently when orgone charged than capacitors placed on their own. A bag of capacitors was left inside the orgone device for some two months. It was additionally placed within a mini-ORAC whilst inside the device and ‘squeezed’ by the placement of other items, including accumulating materials. This bag of 30 assorted capacitors was not planned to be part of the preliminary, pilot experiments and therefore the individual capacitors were not zeroed via short circuiting prior to placement. Most unused capacitors however tend to be low or zero in mV charge when tested for the other experiments. Six capacitors were taken from the bag and all were anomalously high in charge, full size capacitors varied from 96.4 to 505 mV and two mini-capacitors, which have been found to normally be zero mV as new, were 3 mV and 40 mV respectively. The capacitors were new and unused prior to the orgone charging. It appears possible that groups of capacitors may have some kind of interaction effect enhanced by proximity. Any further capacitor experiments undertaken by the author will take this factor into consideration.

2. Temperature Measurements

The temperature within orgone devices has been noted to be higher than the ambient surroundings in a number of controlled experiments since Reich’s discovery of the effect. It is termed TO-T for Temperature Orgone versus Temperature (control). Rigorously controlled TO-T experiments have been conducted by Demeo and others (9). To-T suggests that there is an anomalous energy accumulated in the ORACs.

The temperature in the inner box of the orgone device, the immediate surroundings of the device and a control room were compared. The orgone device did not have a lid at first (it was placed underneath to increase the number of layers). In any case the device seemed to affect the temperature of the whole room. An identically treated room immediately next to the orgone device room was therefore used as control. Temperature was measured over 4 weeks with a good quality but standard household electronic thermometer accurate to 1/10th of a degree centigrade in October 2017. There was a small differential, but only at times, between the inner box of the device and the orgone device room. However between the orgone device room and the control room immediately next to it there was an almost constant differential of between 0.1 and 0.8 degrees centigrade averaging around 0.3 to 0.4 of a degree Celsius. A correlation between the placement of the americium nearer to the device and a change in temperature orgone (TO) was not noted though it may have occurred and been too subtle to notice. The weather records were not frequent enough to observe any correlations between TO and weather conditions though such may also have occurred. To-T was recorded for four weeks in the autumn of 2017. Weather was a usual mixture for the North West of England, of mostly cloudy conditions. Temperature was recorded at the same height in each room. Heat sources in the premises were kept entirely off during the weeks of recording temperatures.

3. Orgone Field Measurements

A Heliognosis Model II Experimental Life Energy Meter (LE Meter) was used to take a number of readings over 6 weeks. The meter uses electrical interaction to indicate the strength of orgone fields. Reich developed the first device which has since been modernised and miniaturised. A number of readings were taken on a daily basis. A reading was taken at the entrance to the orgone device room (Room 1), a second reading 3 foot from the orgone device was taken (Room 2). A reading was also taken at the outside wall of the orgone device. Another two readings were taken inside the device, firstly at the inside of the outer wall of the device and secondly inside the inner box.

The field from an orgone charged piece of orgonotic compound (resin, metal and crystal mixture) and the field from a similarly sized crystal were also measured.

Lastly the radioactive americium was measured in two locations, at the entrance to the orgone device room and 3 foot from the device.

All readings were done with the same settings on the meter at 1 cm distance using the small plug-in vacuum tube sensor on the back of the meter. The x10 Setting and Number 2 on the

Fine and Coarse dials were used throughout the experiment. The pointer arm was checked to be at approximately zero away from the orgone device before readings were commenced.

Figure 8

Life Energy Meter Mk II With Vacuum Tube Sensor

Most of the readings were as expected. Room 1 was usually about half of Room 2, indicating a fairly large field getting stronger nearer the device. This was as expected. The outside wall of the device, the inner and outer walls of the device all gradually increased in charge from the outer to the inner readings. There was also a gradual increase in the consistency of the LE meter readings of the inner boxes of the device as the americium radioactive source was moved closer to the orgone device. The americium had five placements, 12 foot, 6 foot, 3 foot, 1 foot and inside the orgone device. After a few weeks the inner box of the device was consistently reaching the maximum on the LE meter (100%). The outside of the device would read between 40% and 60% usually.

To give an idea of the readings, a person’s hand on the same settings on the LE meter and at the same distance, varied from around 40% – 60%. A second surprise was the orgone charge readings of the americium itself. Each day the americium was taken from its placement at the allocated distance from the orgone device (see paragraph above) and measured at 3 foot and 9 foot away from the orgone device. The americium had an orgonotic field around it measuring up to around 24% on the LE meter. However, the orgonotic field the americium produces appears to depend on how near the americium is to the orgone device. When the americium is at position 1 (about 9 foot away from the device) at just outside the orgone room, the reading was between 10% and 24% generally. However when the americium was measured 3 foot from the device, this dropped to a quarter of this level on daily readings over a few weeks. This differential dropped when the permanent placement of the americium was moved closer to the device but was still evident. The americium now had a quarter more orgone charge away from the device compared to close up, for example 24% away from the device compared to 18% near the device was about average. The orgonotic field of the americium appeared to be suppressed near to the orgone device. Nearly every reading seemed to confirm this effect.

The small piece of an orgonotic compound (resin, metal shavings and crystal) and a similar-sized crystal was orgone charged in the device and readings taken with the LE meter. The orgone compound behaved similarly to the crystal and both gained and lost a modest amount of charge at the same time in a cyclical manner over the weeks. The orgone compound had approximately ⅓ higher charge than the crystal.

4. Radioactivity

A small amount of radioactive americium-241 was used in the experiments. The americium was present inside a sealed smoke alarm in which it remained for the duration of the experiments. In terms of activity, it was 0.9 microCurie of americium. This corresponds to an amount of 0.26 microgram (mcg) of americium. It was first placed 12 foot away from the orgone device. After a week it was moved to 6 foot, then 3 foot a week later, then 1 foot, then within the device for a day and lastly just outside the device again. After 5 weeks the americium was removed from the vicinity completely.

Reich used one milligram (mg) of radium-226 in the original oranur experiments. This corresponds to 1,111 times the radioactivity used in this experiment . The actual radioactivity readings from the americium, on a Geiger counter, are barely over the background count of 0.08 to 0.12 microSievert per hour (uSv/hr) noted locally. Typical readings of the americium would be around 0.18 uSv/hr making it just 0.06 uSv/hr above the background count of 0.12 uSv/hr. The background count, away from the orgone device (of about 0.08 to 0.12 uSv/hr) was measured repeatedly at two local points, indoors and outside. The uSv/hr count both of the radioactive material and near the device varied. There was also a suppression effect of the uSv/hr readings within a few foot of the orgone device. This will be detailed later in this section.

A new Radex One Geiger counter was used to measure readings at a distance from the orgone device (about 24 foot) and close by (3 foot). This was measured in microSievert per hour (uSv/hr). The radioactivity readings remained within normal limits and were around 0.08 to 0.22 uSv/hr. However there was a slight raise over the background levels of 0.08 to 0.12 uSv/hr so that the absolute readings varied between 0.12 and 0.22 uSv/hr. Reich used Counts Per Minute but this measure varies depending on the Geiger tube in the counter so uSv/hr are the standard today. In CPM the background count would be roughly 20 CPM using the Radex One meter.

The daily uSv/hr readings reflected the LE meter readings in that again there was a suppression effect near the orgone device. The radioactivity readings were suppressed by about one third compared to away from the device. The uSv/hr readings inside the orgone device were not noticeably different to 3 foot away. There was not a noticeable rise in the uSv/hr readings when the americium’s permanent placement was moved from 3 foot away from the device to 1 foot from it. A typical reading was around 0.16 uSv/hr 18-24 foot away from the orgone device (compared to 0.12 uSv/hr close by). Almost all the readings showed a modest suppression of the uSv/hr readings of about 25% close to the orgone device and a small raising of the uSv/hr over background within the extended field of the device (6 to 24 foot).

Figure 9

The Geiger counter was only obtained in the last two weeks of this phase of the experiments (environmental measurements) so there was not a lot of data collected. The americium’s stationing had already decreased to 3 foot from the orgone device by this time. From 3 foot to 1 foot from the orgone device, no clear pattern emerged. A very small increase in radioactivity of about 4-6 uSv/hr over the background counts was noted 18-24 foot away from the device, for example from 0.12 to 0.18 uSv/hr. When the americium was placed within the device there was a spike in the readings to 0.22 uSv/hr and a heavy atmosphere was noted. A general feeling of overcharge was noticed and the author’s skin began to feel somewhat sun tanned and sensitive. Also there was sensitivity to the metal springs in mattresses noted by the author which took a number of weeks to dissipate.

The uSv/hr readings were lowered after airing and DOR-busting of the premises (using a small bucket DOR-buster and running water). A DOR-buster is metal tubes grounded into water and draws orgone and DOR (Deadly Orgone) into the water from the atmosphere or from an organism. The DOR-buster was just 2 x two foot alloy metal tubes of 1 ½ inch diameter placed within a running sink so that the water runs over them. After this the tubes were left in a bucket to drain the area of DOR more slowly (as the water was then not running).

Figure 10

DOR-Busters

 

A small amount of radioactive americium-241 was used in the experiments. The americium was present inside a sealed smoke alarm in which it remained for the duration of the experiments. In terms of activity, it was 0.9 microCurie of americium. This corresponds to an amount of 0.26 microgram (mcg) of americium. It was first placed 12 foot away from the orgone device. After a week it was moved to 6 foot, then 3 foot a week later, then 1 foot, then within the device for a day and lastly just outside the device again. After 5 weeks the americium was removed from the vicinity completely.

Anomalous Radioactive Observations

When the device was in its new location three lots of 0.9 microCurie of americium (or 0.78 mcg of americium in total quantity) were brought within its field to a position of 1 foot from the device for about 5 minutes, this was done without the gradual conditioning period used previously where the americium was brought 50% closer to the device each week. After this the uSv/hr readings for about 40 foot around the building were suppressed to zero. The readings were suppressed in a circular area of about 40 ft radius from the orgone device. This was only observed once so might have been an observation anomaly or a meter fault, however the readings returned to normal 15 minutes later.

A second anomaly was the reaction of one of the oranur affected orgone tubes. A psychotherapist who is also a psychic trance medium took the tube home with her for a number of days. She brought it back reporting that the tube was just too strong. The tube seemed to react to this person as though she herself was radioactive (she wasn’t radioactive). The Geiger readings increased to 0.28 uSv/hr when the tube was within a radius of 12 to 18 foot of this person and subjective observations also indicated a dense orgone field (this Geiger reading is about 3 times the normal background level). This effect settled down after the tube was no longer near her for a period of time. Other people did not have this effect on the tube. This effect did not reoccur in her presence as strongly once the tube was no longer kept at her premises, though she still has an energising effect on the large orgone device compared to other people.

Lastly, there was a strange occurrence in that the uSv/hr readings for all four lots of americium at two locations all showed no uSv/hr or LE meter reaction for a whole day then returned to normal. Perhaps this is connected to some environmental/cosmic factor that is currently unrecognised. The author had thought that the americium exposed to the orgone device had possibly started to change into ORUR (orgonised post-radioactive substance) but this didn’t appear to be the case as the unexposed americium (kept in a separate building and over 40 foot away from the device) had also lost its uSv/hr and LE meter reading at the same time.

Currently there is no americium near the device.

Cautionary Notes

With the gradual placement of the americium closer to the orgone device no great untoward effects appeared to have occurred. The actual levels of radioactivity used were tiny and were all within normal background levels in any case even when placed inside the orgone device (though on the high side of the normal range at this point perhaps). However, it gradually became quite clear that the orgone charge in the premises was just too over-powering. Certainly when the americium was within the device for a day it was uncomfortable. However the device feels fine now and the premises quickly reverted to normal on airing and DOR-busting.

It appears the device itself continues to be somewhat ‘hot’ as even after being dismantled and put back together in the brick outhouse/garage it regained its former high charge literally within minutes (as measured on the LE meter). The device currently feels pleasant to be near to and has never actually felt unpleasant – it is just too strong to be near to for an extended period. It also seems to have possibly emotionally cathartic effects on sensitive people who are near to it for a period of time. Within an extended field of perhaps 24 to 40 foot an oranur device can make young people or naturally energetic adults overcharged, though this effect is not constant.

The author would recommend that if one is to repeat any controlled oranur experiments that the following precautions are taken as a minimum:

  • Use a separate uninhabited building at least 24, possibly up to 40 foot from any living quarters.
  • Generally the equivalent of approximately a thousandth of Reich’s radioactivity was used (0.9 microCuries or 0.26 mcg of americium).
  • One can acclimatise an orgone device to the presence of low level radioactive material.
  • If moving low level radioactive material suddenly into the presence of an orgone device the results might be different or stronger.
  • Monitor for changes if staying near to an oranur device for an extended period. Suntan effects and tingling on the skin have been noted even at this low level.
  • The higher the orgone charge the stronger the interaction with the radioactive material.
  • Parts of the oranur device remain ‘hot’ or different than before, permanently it appears.
  • Oranur appears to have different qualities to orgone.
  • Psychics and spiritual healers in particular reacted strongly to the oranur device.
  • Oranur can have emotionally cathartic effects.
  • It can also be dehydrating.

Possible Therapeutic Effects

It is also possible that oranur may have directly therapeutic effects in controlled dosages. It subjectively appears that it might be able to affect armouring to some degree and strongly increase orgone charge locally on the body. It also has a warming effect which feels agreeable at low doses. A small charged item, usually the small orgonotic compound from within the oranur affected device, was used to treat a number of minor ailments for short periods at a time (a few minutes) with apparent good effect.

5. Magnetic Effects

The author wondered whether orientating the orgone device with the cardinal directions would increase flow of orgone charge. Certainly ancient sites and churches are orientated in such a way. A good quality outdoor compass was obtained. However it was impossible to take a magnetic reading near to the device. The device deflected the needle by up to 180° near to it. Also the magnetic field around the device appeared to extend at least 6 foot. The magnetic effect remains after the removal of the americium from near the device. There is some deflection up to 9 foot away and 180° or more of deflection over the device.

6. Luminescence Effects

A large glass plasma ball of a type that when connected to a 9V DC electric current lights up with ‘lightning strikes’ and a light blue mist was placed within the orgone device and charged for 2 months. An increase in the reactivity of the ball to static charges had been noted for some time since the orgone charging began but it was very hard to photograph with ordinary camera equipment. Eventually a professional quality camera was used to take the following photograph (one of a series). The picture was obtained by placing cling-film over the plasma ball and then removing it quickly. The static charge then caused the ball to light up showing a strong azure blue glow covering the whole ball. The photo was taken in the dark, with a flash inside the orgone device outbuilding from a distance of about 6 foot by a second person. The strong azure blue glow is clearly visible to the naked eye. Flash-lights from cameras do not produce by reflection blue glows of this type. Both line voltage and battery voltage was put through the plasma ball after a month of orgone charging and neither produced any unusual effects or strong azure blue luminescent glows. Rubbing the uncharged plasma ball with plastic or by hand did not produce glows.

Conclusion

Alongside the Italian orgone and electric currents research (10) and of course Reich’s original vacuum and Geiger tube work in the The Oranur Experiment, First Report (11), the author is confident that an orgone to electrical conversion takes place within ORACs. It would appear that a strong, oranur-influenced orgone device is perhaps capable of precipitating the accumulation of electric charge in devices such as capacitors and even in chemical batteries, though there is much more work to be done in this regard.

It would also appear to be possible to conduct controlled, small-scale oranur experiments as long as certain precautions are undertaken and one is careful not to proceed too quickly or with anything other than very small amounts of excitatory material (radioactive elements) until more is known. The author would recommend not at first exceeding approximately a thousandth of the quantity Reich used or around 0.9 microCuries of americium or equivalent. Natural sources of radioactivity as used by some healers might be one possible activation method. Experiments should also be under the supervision of experienced orgone researchers or qualified scientists. The author does not recommend oranur experiments being conducted by non-qualified or inexperienced persons.

Results of Previous Oranur Research Since Reich

A team led by the Spanish physicist Milian previously confirmed a radioactive and electrical capacitance anomaly in ‘modified faraday cages’ (a term for orgone boxes that is more acceptable within physics journals), (12). Their initial experimentation was carried out in the 1990s and was presented to the European Society for Scientific Exploration in 1998 (13). A brief synopsis was published in 2002 in Pulse of the Planet journal (14). Since then the Spanish physicists have also reported their anomalies to have a correlation to cosmic weather conditions (15). Their formal papers, now in mainstream physics journals, have been published in recent years but the actual experimental work dates back to the 1990s as noted. Maglione has also examined various oranur effects, including those of Milian in his extensive and in-depth book covering Reich’s oranur work in a broad scientific context including that of the Ark of the Covenant – an exceedingly strong radioactive oranur device, a device similar in many ways to Reich’s oranur set up but perhaps a thousand times stronger (16).

Future Work

This is only the second experimental investigation of oranur effects since Reich to be published. It is also the first full article on oranur in the orgonomic journals since Reich published CwS in 1957. Hopefully, the future will see more work in this under-explored area of orgonomy.

CAPACITORS

 

 

 

 

Electronic Capacitors 1st Set

Single capacitor at room temp. Light/static charge similar

Same type of capacitor at room temp in orgone device.

Range 33 to 220 mV after experiment (both groups).
Over 7 days of charging and daily recording the orgone capacitor gained 100% compared to the control capacitor.

 

Electronic Capacitors 2nd Set

Set of 10 Capacitors in two plastic containers kept at similar temp, light and static charge conditions.

The same capacitors were zeroed and used as experimental and control. Similar light and temp. Weather similar, December 2017.

Range 13.8 to 94.3 mV after experimental periods (both groups). The orgone capacitors averaged 25% to 50% higher mV readings (10 to 20 mV higher than control). The orgone layered companion capacitor was many times higher in experimental group compared to control.

 

Electronic Capacitors 3rd Set

As above

As above

The orgone charged capacitors were all higher than controls by a differential of between 1 and 22 mV. The biggest differentials were with the proximal orgone-layered capacitor and its immediate companion.

 

Electronic Capacitors 4th Set

Set of 4 identical capacitors. Same temp, light and experimental period. Same type of plastic box without orgone layering placed inside cupboard. 12-14 foot from orgone device.

Set of 4 identical capacitors. Same temp, light and experimental period. Contained in orgone layered small plastic box placed within orgone device.

Range 0 to 16.9 mV after 24 hours. Orgone charged capacitors were four times higher than control capacitors after 24 hours.

Over the next week the charges gradually equalise between orgone and control groups.

Electronic Capacitors 5th Set

None.

Bag of 30 mixed capacitors orgone charged for two months in orgone device.

Relatively high mV charges were found between 3 mV and 505 mV depending on the size of the capacitor. 6 capacitors were tested out of 30 charged. All 6 had high mV charges.

Approximate values for unused capacitors had been noted but not from this set.
A proximal effect of storing capacitors in groups appears possible. It might be useful for future capacitor experiments to take any such group effect into account.

TEMPERATURE

 

 

 

 

Temperature Orgone (To) Versus Temp (T)

An identically treated room next to the orgone device room was used as control (as the temp from the orgone device affected at least 6 foot around the device).

Temperature was recorded with a good quality electronic thermometer accurate to 1/10th degree °C in Control Room, Orgone Room and Orgone Inner Box for three weeks approx. Temperature in experimental (To) and control (T) room were taken at the same height.

A constant differential was noted between To and T of between 0.1 and 0.8 °C. The differential averaged about 0.4 °C

The rooms and premises were both left unheated and were on the same side of the building with the same windows and room volume approximately. Other heat sources in the premises were off for the duration of the experiment.

ORGONE FIELD

 

 

 

 

Orgone field experiments

Control readings of a low charged hand and high charged hand were taken to establish comparative levels of ‘orgs’ or orgonotic charge.

Orgone charge readings 9 foot from the orgone device, 3 foot from the device, the outer wall of the device and inside the device were taken with a Heliognosis Life Energy (LE) Meter Model II. Although an older model it had been stored in a custom built, cushioned, wooden crate and was in good working order.

Readings gradually increased as expected nearer to the orgone device. The inner boxes of the device were strong, consistently at 100% on the meter scale after some weeks.

The LE meter readings of the americium were suppressed when the americium was near the orgone device compared to 9 foot away.

RADIOACTIVITY

 

 

 

 

Radioactivity measurements

Control readings at two locations were taken repeatedly to establish background levels of mSv/hr.

mSv/hr were measured at 24 foot from the device, near to the device and inside it. mSv/hr readings were also taken of the 0.26 mcg of americium-241 contained in the smoke alarm (the americium contained was 0.9 microCuries in activity). Readings were taken with a new Radex One Geiger Meter.

The mSv/hr readings were within normal limits though above background by about 0.02 to 0.06 mSv/hr within 18-24 foot of device. The readings were suppressed by about 0.02 to 0.06 mSv/hr next to the device compared to the readings away from the device. Readings within the device were similar to those taken just outside it. When the americium was placed within the device there was a spike in readings to 0.22 mSv/hr.

The americium was very low in radioactivity being around 0.06 mSv/hr above the background of 0.12 mSv/hr (when measured away from the device prior to experiment) or 0.18 mSv/hr absolute reading.

MAGNETISM

 

 

 

 

Magnetism measurements

Compass reacted normally away from orgone device.

Walking Compass used near to the orgone device

The compass was passed across the orgone device slowly with sweeping motion. Compass was deflected by around 180° during sweep.

Compass could not be used normally near to device. Magnetic field appeared to extend at least 6 foot.

LUMINESCENCE

 

 

 

 

Luminescence measurements

The same plasma ball was checked for static charge reactions prior to the orgone charging, by rubbing with plastic film and with hand. Very minimal sparking type reactions were present similar to when it is connected to voltage but to a much lesser extent when rubbed.

Plasma Ball placed in orgone device for 2 months.

A strong azure blue, luminescent glow was noted in streams and over the whole ball when plastic cling-film was placed on the ball and then quickly removed (providing a small static charge). No external electrical current was applied to obtain the strong blue glow.

Normally a very light blue mist, stronger at the diode, and electrical ‘lightning’ is produced when the plasma ball is connected to DC voltage.

Leon Southgate MSc

From a family of psychotherapists and teachers I was introduced to orgonomy at a young age. As an adult my interest was rekindled, doing an MSc research degree in Chinese medicine and orgonomy. In 2002, a double blind, placebo controlled study was completed (N = 72). It confirmed an effect from orgone devices upon acupuncture (P = 0.03). An article about the study was published in the European Journal of Oriental Medicine in 2003. The theoretical side of the study outlined dozens of new parallels. It was later published as a book by German publishers LAP.

Southgate started an orgonomic PhD but the access to laboratory work became difficult so the project ended but a comprehensive (though not complete) Annotated Literature Review of the Post-Reich Journals was written and made available for free online.

Southgate is focused on examining orgone and its relationship to consciousness.
