Reminders from James DeMeo: Our Publications, and Summer 2017 Seminar

Dear OBRL subscribers,

Here are a few points to share with you, as a reminder to old hands, and for newcomers to the ideas of Wilhelm Reich and Orgonomy.


Since 2013, in addition to an active program of research, 14 new books were published by my Natural Energy publishing house. That is in addition to five older books published in the years before. They were all announced on OBRL-News, with notices posted to the OBRL Blog, as were various research updates and similar things.

All these books can all be accessed and purchased from our website:
Or you can purchase them via internet from Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, or other internet bookstores, both in the USA or internationally. The best deal for purchasing outside the USA is from the various international Amazon websites, or from which offers free international shipping to most destinations.

All our book publications are high-quality perfectbound paperbacks, with color covers, and rich with photos, charts and other illustrations. For book descriptions, review what is already posted to the, or websites.

Everyone with a serious interest in Wilhelm Reich’s works and the subject of orgonomy should read all these works, and have copies on the shelves of their personal library. They are among the most solid natural scientific and social-historical confirmations of Reich’s sex-economic and orgone biophysical work, touching both heart and mind. They are also excellent gifts to students or others with interests in the subject. Your purchase also helps fund the various OBRL projects and research, and helps us pay the bills, to continue developing our new titles forthcoming.

We have major works under development for future years, such as an historical view of "Saharasia Since 1900", which helps to understand the exact nature and geography of modern international conflicts – but you’d have know the original Saharasia discovery and findings on the "origins of armoring" and "origins of violence/war" question, for that to be fully understood. Then two new works on weather-related issues are under development. One is an historical review of my various cloudbusting expeditions, in the USA and overseas, with personal notes not found in the original published research reports. A second work in development details atmospheric weather processes from an orgonomic point of view. Also a foundational work will appear reviewing the positive research evidence for a cosmological ether in space, showing with scientific evidence and argument how the oftentimes static and dead "ether" is actually a pulsating cosmic energy, understood most exactly in Reich’s findings on the cosmic orgone energy ocean. This new work will also include discussion on the errors in modern physics theory which developed as a consequence to the premature discarding of the cosmic ether, in the early 20th Century. And finally, a new work will eventually be developed on my new water research, on the properties of orgone-charged water as determined from laboratory experiments, including the blue-glow fluorescence of such water as has been documented in the new studies.

If you have been reading the OBRL-News reports and newsletters (see below), you will already know about some of this. But development of research papers into a full book form takes quite a lot of time and commitment of financial resources. This makes your purchase of our existing books all the more important, keeping our publication machinery well-oiled and functioning – and educating you on the latest new findings in orgone biophysics, the history of orgonomy, problems with the emotional plague, and similar topics.

Also be aware, as part of the non-profit mission of OBRL, our internet website offers various reprints and reports from scientific journals for free download. These include the following:

* OBRL Annual Year-End Newsletters: These contain a lot of information on OBRL activities, experiments, seminars, and much otherwise unpublished material, with additional weblinks for easy access.

* James DeMeo’s published papers: This webpage gives a chronological listing of my various research papers, published books and other materials, with free download links for some of them. It is unfortunately not updated since 2015, but I hope to do so in the near future. A more updated publications list for my works is found at either the or websites, but you must register with them to gain access:
* Saharasia Summary Article, with Translations:
My summary article on Saharasia, as published many years ago, is listed at a separate Saharasia webpage. At this webpage, there are various details and discussions, including weblinks for the English language summary article. Translations into French, German, Greek, Italian, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Turkish are also available at this same webpage, for free download. We are also seeking a translator to render this important article into Arabic and Persian-Farsi, Chinese, Japanese, and other major world languages – please contact us if you are able to do this.

* Papers on Ether-Drift and Energy in Space: If this subject interests you, then review the many historical research papers gathered here, including an interesting 1679 letter from Isaac Newton to Robert Boyle, admitting to a cosmic ether which in its capacity to charge up matter, is quite similar to Reich’s cosmic orgone energy.


In the 1990s and through the early years of the 2000s, multiple seminars and workshops were offered every summer at the OBRL facility in Ashland, Oregon. After a time, interest lagged for seminars given a worsening economy, and as internet webinars or posted materials became more popular. However, most people today realize the questionable value of internet materials, how computer-skilled individuals with low knowledge can dominate public discussions of a topic, leaving a bad impression of the subject. This is especially true for the subject of Wilhelm Reich and Orgonomy, where a full 99% of websites present fraudulent or pathologically wrong information, including especially "Wikipedia".

This may explain why, in more recent years, I have been getting increasing requests for lectures and seminars. Consequently, in summer of 2015, a weekend seminar was organized at a room in nearby Southern Oregon University, with separate events at the OBRL facility, and a field trip to nearby Crater Lake (the bluest water in the world!). Some detail about that event is still posted to our internet "events" page:

We plan to hold another one or two seminars on the subject of Reich and Orgonomy next year, during Summer 2017. Popular themes from years ago were:
1. "The Bioenergetic, Orgonomic Basis of Life and Weather",
2. "The Orgone Accumulator, Scientific Background and Construction", and
3. "New Research Findings in Social and Scientific Orgonomy: Saharasia and Replications of Orgone Accumulator Experiments".

These three themes are the top candidates for 2017, but the exact subjects and dates are not yet selected, sometime in July or August. Contact us (info "at" orgonelab "dot" org) if you are interested, and we will add your name to a special email list for that event.

By The Numbers – The Untold Story of Muslim Opinions & Demographics

By The Numbers – The Untold Story of Muslim Opinions & Demographics

An excellent, must-view video. My only objection to it is, the narrator Raheel Raza – a very brave moderate Muslim woman – does not address how all these horrible beliefs and hatreds expressed by her co-religionists, are directly supported by the Koran and Hadiths of Islam. In short, it is the radical terror-oriented Muslims who are more true to their Islamic faith than the moderates. And therein lies the problem.

Also at the end of the video, expand their definitions on "have your say" by voting for those candidates who are directly addressing this severe existential problem, in opposition to the seriously dangerous unvetted mass-immigration from the Islamic countries.

Also for a sex-economic Reichian background as to why this violent and vile set of behaviors and beliefs has taken root to create the Islamic world, to make it what it is, read my book, Saharasia:

Gender Ideology Harms Children – Am. College of Pediatrics

June 6, 2016

Gender Ideology Harms Children – American College of Pediatrics

An important and clear scientific statement repeated below, against the junk-science of "Genderism" as propagated by the LGBTQ political lobby. Spread it around, especially to parents, teens and adolescents. J.D.


Gender Ideology Harms Children

The American College of Pediatricians urges educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality.

1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident. The exceedingly rare disorders of sex development (DSDs), including but not limited to testicular feminization and congenital adrenal hyperplasia, are all medically identifiable deviations from the sexual binary norm, and are rightly recognized as disorders of human design. Individuals with DSDs do not constitute a third sex.1

2. No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one. No one is born with an awareness of themselves as male or female; this awareness develops over time and, like all developmental processes, may be derailed by a child’s subjective perceptions, relationships, and adverse experiences from infancy forward. People who identify as “feeling like the opposite sex” or “somewhere in between” do not comprise a third sex. They remain biological men or biological women.2,3,4

3. A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such. These children suffer from gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria (GD), formerly listed as Gender Identity Disorder (GID), is a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V).5 The psychodynamic and social learning theories of GD/GID have never been disproved.2,4,5

4. Puberty is not a disease and puberty-blocking hormones can be dangerous. Reversible or not, puberty- blocking hormones induce a state of disease – the absence of puberty – and inhibit growth and fertility in a previously biologically healthy child.6

5. According to the DSM-V, as many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.5

6. Children who use puberty blockers to impersonate the opposite sex will require cross-sex hormones in late adolescence. Cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke and cancer.7,8,9,10

7. Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBTQ – affirming countries.11 What compassionate and reasonable person would condemn young children to this fate knowing that after puberty as many as 88% of girls and 98% of boys will eventually accept reality and achieve a state of mental and physical health?

8. Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse. Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents, leading more children to present to “gender clinics” where they will be given puberty-blocking drugs. This, in turn, virtually ensures that they will “choose” a lifetime of carcinogenic and otherwise toxic cross-sex hormones, and likely consider unnecessary surgical mutilation of their healthy body parts as young adults.

CLARIFICATIONS in response to questions regarding points 3 & 5:

Regarding Point 3: “Where does the APA or DSM-V indicate that Gender Dysphoria is a mental disorder?”

The APA (American Psychiatric Association) is the author of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition(DSM-V). The APA states that those distressed and impaired by their GD meet the definition of a disorder. The College is unaware of any medical literature that documents a gender dysphoric child seeking puberty blocking hormones who is not significantly distressed by the thought of passing through the normal and healthful process of puberty.
From the DSM-V fact sheet:
“The critical element of gender dysphoria is the presence of clinically significant distress associated with the condition.”
“This condition causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.”

Regarding Point 5: “Where does the DSM-V list rates of resolution for Gender Dysphoria?”

On page 455 of the DSM-V under “Gender Dysphoria without a disorder of sex development” it states: “Rates of persistence of gender dysphoria from childhood into adolescence or adulthood vary. In natal males, persistence has ranged from 2.2% to 30%. In natal females, persistence has ranged from 12% to 50%.” Simple math allows one to calculate that for natal boys: resolution occurs in as many as 100% – 2.2% = 97.8% (approx. 98% of gender-confused boys) Similarly, for natal girls: resolution occurs in as many as 100% – 12% = 88% gender-confused girls

The bottom line: Our opponents advocate a new scientifically baseless standard of care for children with a psychological condition (GD) that would otherwise resolve after puberty for the vast majority of patients concerned. Specifically, they advise: affirmation of children’s thoughts which are contrary to physical reality; the chemical castration of these children prior to puberty with GnRH agonists (puberty blockers which cause infertility, stunted growth, low bone density, and an unknown impact upon their brain development), and, finally, the permanent sterilization of these children prior to age 18 via cross-sex hormones. There is an obvious self-fulfilling nature to encouraging young GD children to impersonate the opposite sex and then institute pubertal suppression. If a boy who questions whether or not he is a boy (who is meant to grow into a man) is treated as a girl, then has his natural pubertal progression to manhood suppressed, have we not set in motion an inevitable outcome? All of his same sex peers develop into young men, his opposite sex friends develop into young women, but he remains a pre-pubertal boy. He will be left psychosocially isolated and alone. He will be left with the psychological impression that something is wrong. He will be less able to identify with his same sex peers and being male, and thus be more likely to self identify as “non-male” or female. Moreover, neuroscience reveals that the pre-frontal cortex of the brain which is responsible for judgment and risk assessment is not mature until the mid-twenties. Never has it been more scientifically clear that children and adolescents are incapable of making informed decisions regarding permanent, irreversible and life-altering medical interventions. For this reason, the College maintains it is abusive to promote this ideology, first and foremost for the well-being of the gender dysphoric children themselves, and secondly, for all of their non-gender-discordant peers, many of whom will subsequently question their own gender identity, and face violations of their right to bodily privacy and safety.

BOOK REVIEW: DeMeo’s: “Marx, Engels, Lenin, Trotsky: Genocide Quotes”

May 27, 2016

BOOK REVIEW: Laina Farhat-Holzman, Reviewer.
James DeMeo’s: “Marx, Engels, Lenin, Trotsky: Genocide Quotes. The Hidden History of Communism’s Founding Tyrants, in their Own Words.”

Because historic memories in the United States tend to be short, there has been a resurgence of romanticism about Marx and Lenin by those who believe that Stalin’s Communism perverted what was intended to be a benign philosophy of creating a just world. Many people on the far left of the political spectrum hold this view, but so do all utopian and dystopian tyrants in the world, who secretly like Stalin better than Marx and Lenin.

My colleague James DeMeo, a geography Ph.D. (a rare degree today), has just come out with what he calls “The other ‘Little Red Book'” (borrowing from Mao), in which he has compiled the words of Communism’s founding fathers, words in private correspondences or obscure speeches, that reveal what these people really thought.

This is a little book, available on Amazon, but deserves much more attention than it will likely get. I read it in one sitting because it is no larger than a decent essay might be, but its effect is explosive. I have never been naïve about Marxism, but I had no idea that it was the godfather of all fascism and has also been a model for today’s Islamism as well. We were foolish to think that religion and communism were inherently enemies; this book shows that they were not.



It is widely believed that Stalin and Mao were butchers, but Marxist apologists still insist that their horrors were a perversion of Marxism. This sounds exactly like the apologists for Militant Islam, who claim that their horrors are a perversion of real Islam. Both of these groups of apologists appear ignorant of what their glorious founders actually believed and said.

The pronouncements (often private) of Marx and Engels shocked me the most. I had thought that they were expounding a philosophy that addressed civilization’s inequities as philosophers have always done. But this is not so. They both wrote to each other and to their inner circles bombastically, advocating the benefits of war, the necessity for slavery, ethnic hatred and virulent anti-Semitism (Marx was born Jewish). They advocated genocide, mass murder, assassinations, and terrorism, all of which, they said, would clear the way for a brave new world. (Hitler learned from them, as did Pol Pot, and certainly Stalin and Mao).

They advocated “exterminating” the peasants of the Ukraine by starving them to death (which Stalin did); they also set up concentration camps and advocated and executed mass deportations of entire peoples (such as the Chechens and Tatars) to Siberia.

One example of Lenin’s instructions particularly shocked me: “Comrades! The kulak uprising in your five districts must be crushed without pityYou must make example of these people. 1) Hang (I mean hang publicly, so that people see) at least 100 kulaks, rich bastards, and known bloodsuckers. 2) Publish their names. 3) Seize all their grain. 4) Take hostages per my instructionsDo all this so that for miles around people see it all, understand it, tremble, and tell themselves that we are killing the bloodthirsty kulaks. Telegraph your receipt and implementation.” The kulaks were only prosperous farmers who resisted collectivization.

Another shock: “slaughter of those wounded fighting against youanyone raising the sword against the existing order will perish by the sword.” Mohammad did the same in his wars against unbelievers.

The cumulative horror of reading these century-old quotes are indeed shocking-and yet terribly current, as practiced by today’s monsters.

The little book also provides a brief timeline of early communism. Very good reading.

DeMeo has done us all a service in this revisit to a history that we had all better know. It is alive again.

POSTSCRIPT: Lake Mead at Record Low Level – But Proven Drought-Abatement Solutions Ignored

May 23, 2016

Lake Mead at Record Low Level – But Proven Drought-Abatement Solutions Ignored

My prior posting on the Southwestern drought and low levels in Lake Mead led to some interesting correspondence. Here is my reply to one of them, redacted a bit.


There are of course plenty of independent reports verifying Reich’s work with the cloudbuster. My reports happen to be the most systematically-constructed field experiments from a scientific-proof standpoint, with large-network data-analyses, often undertaken within a peer-review context and at the invitation by government agencies. I am university trained in the atmospheric sciences and worked for a decade as professor in several top universities, Departments of Geography teaching Earth and Atmospheric Science, Climatology, etc.

For example:

1. There is an excellent book on the subject of Wilhelm Reich’s atmospheric discoveries, and verifications of his findings, written by an Italian engineer a few years ago. It summarizes all the work undertaken by Reich and many others since his death, including a chapter on my own work:

Wilhelm Reich and the Healing of Atmospheres: Modern Techniques for the Abatement of Desertification, by Roberto Maglione

2. There is a hard-cover reprint of my original 1979 systematic study of Reich’s cloudbuster at the University of Kansas, subjected to peer-review by the other professors in my home department. It is an older document, but summarizes many basic issues.

Preliminary Analysis of Changes in Kansas Weather Coincidental to Experimental Operations with a Reich Cloudbuster

3. My summary article on Internet:

4. Finally, here are some historical details on the major overseas field expeditions, and the many people who cooperatively assisted in those efforts.

Most of my associates or co-workers on this subject are today either in retirement or dead and gone. Many were PhDs or MDs, very skilled professional people often with university appointments, or they were officials in Agricultural Ministeries or Civil Aviation departments of foreign governments. Others were unaffiliated people with lesser pedigrees but a lot of knowledge and big hearts, who found great truth in Reich’s discoveries, and applied them in their life, and private enterprises.

In Eritrea I lead a team that ended a 30 year drought cycle with rains that began within a few days after we began working. Overall a 5-year project was developed and funded by that nation, at bare-bones expenses, and they had five years of excellent rains. These rains were subjected to analysis by official Eritrean rainfall data, and documented as developing after the periods of our field operations. The rains spread over much of Ethiopia and Sudan, and other parts of the Sahel, such that the overall runoff through the Nile River basin filled Lake Nasser behind the Aswan Dam for the first time in its history, dating back to 1968. Massive new overflow lakes were also created out in the open Sahara, due to the "excess water" flowing into the Nile and Lake Nasser, something never before happening. Eritrea collapsed into Stalinism and a bloody war with Ethiopia after 1999, forcing an end to that project. The young Eritreans I hoped to train, to take over this work all vanished into the Eritrean military, for front-line actions. I was later informed by friends that the cloudbuster equipment we left behind was rusting away, abandoned in a weed-patch. Drought returned by c.2002 and has more or less persisted since. The overflow lakes, so large one could not see the shoreline on the other side and visible on Google Earth and satellite images, have since begun to dry out. The older democratically-inclined government officials who supported my work could no longer be found, they either fled the country or went into prisons, retired in silence or died. I cannot know.

The Namibia project was organized by the German GDZ development agency, through friends in Germany. They developed contacts in Namibia whom I cannot recall at the moment. My teams’ work triggered excellent rains across the entire southern part of Africa, ending what was a 12-year drought in Namibia. Anyhow, that project was strongly opposed by Namibia’s top meteorologist, a deeply Christian Afrikaner Boer, who in spite of the excellent rains that followed our work and ended the drought, at the end of our project screamed at me "Only Gott Kan mayke it drain! Gett de Hell out ov mein Office!" Totally crazy. The one local fellow who took an exceptional interest in this work, and whom I trained and entrusted the cloudbuster to and kept in contact with — a farmer-rancher of German descent who already knew Reich’s work in some detail — later fled the country with his family, when Mugabe-ism was stimulating murders of white farmers and their families.

The Israel operations ended a 3-year drought with rains of an historical magnitude, which spread across the entire Eastern Mediterranean. It ended their drought, filled their main reservoir Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) but was opposed by the head of their hydrology section who also ran a very ambitious cloud-seeding program. He was boiling with anger against our project, which he felt was a threat to his cloudseeding efforts, even though there were no clouds to seed before our work was undertaken. He also was a former engineer for a housing project built down in an old paved-over dry lake bed… which predictably filled with about two meters of water given all the good rains. He was smart enough to dedicate the lower floor of that apartment complex for automobile parking, but didn’t plan well enough for drainage. The Israeli meteorologists later fabricated an "explanation" that the good rains were due to the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo on the other side of the planet six months earlier, and not due to our cloudbusting. Later investigation by unrelated climatologists, in a published a paper documented a global decline in precipitation following Mt. Pinatubo, making Israel one of the very few places on the planet with exceptional rains in the post-Pinatubo period. Or the post-cloudbusting period, I should say.

Why hasn’t it yet been accepted in the English-speaking world? A comparison of the opposition to the Wright’s airplane or Goddard’s rocket is informing. Saul rarely becomes Paul, and as Max Planck once famously said, "Science progresses, funeral by funeral". We might say, not enough of the old guard who banned and burned Reich’s books, or their intellectual offspring, have died. But Reich’s supporters are not immortal either.

I cannot tell you how many times I was slandered by mainstream journalists and a few scientific big-wigs within the USA and UK, often with my rebuttals refused publication. Or I had to threaten larger public exposure of their unethical lying and censorship to get even a small rejoinder published.

For example, one of my peer-reviewed rebuttal articles on that issue of mainstream scientific slander was co-authored by a long list of my associates — most of whom are PhD-level natural scientists or MD physicians who view Reich’s work quite seriously — in a rejoinder against Nature magazine’s slander of Reich. They all know of my cloudbusting work, either by direct cooperative participation and experience, or review of my published papers. Here:

"In Defense of Wilhelm Reich: An Open Response to Nature and the Scientific / Medical Community", by James DeMeo, et al. Water, 4, 72-81, November 25, 2012
I also recently gave an invited presentation on this subject at the 10th International Conference on the Physics, Chemistry and Biology of Water, in Varna, Bulgaria. This was recorded on video, and is available for viewing as a YouTube item:

There are other published materials, but these are easily available via internet.

I’m not sure how much more one could ask for in the way of obtaining support from the US government, or affected agricultural or industrial concerns, to fund a project aimed at drought-abatement and refilling Lake Mead. If the skepticism is so thick and intractable that they won’t even return a phone call, or respond to a serious proposal of a workable solution, in the midst of a severe water crisis, then there is nothing more I could do. We simply do not have the financial resources to launch similar field-work expeditions into the American drought regions.

I hope some of this is helpful.

Lake Mead at Record Low Level – But Proven Drought-Abatement Solutions Ignored

May 21, 2016

Lake Mead at Record Low Level – But Proven Solutions Ignored

An article recently appeared on ABC News, that one of America’s primary agricultural water reservoirs, Lake Mead, has declined to record low levels.

For the record, over the period 2013-2015, a professionally-drafted Proposal to end the California and Southwestern Drought through authentic cloudbusting, was put into the hands of nearly every major water-resource or drought-emergency organization in California, as well as sent to the offices of state governors or big-city mayors, including to a few private industries. That effort aimed to raise funds to cover the many expenses for a team of workers using several large cloudbusting devices, to take on the work over some extended period of time. OBRL spent around $10,000 of our scarce funds repairing two trailer-mounted cloudbusters in preparation for that work. I had previously lead teams of skilled workers, to end droughts just as severe for Israel, Namibia, and Eritrea, filling depleted reservoirs and lakes across large regions no smaller than the Lake Mead basin. In Eastern Africa, my team of cloudbuster operators created such good rains over the region that Lake Nasser, behind the Aswan High Dam, filled to capacity for the first time in its history. Five gigantic new lakes were created from the overflow, out in the open Sahara Desert. A summary of those results is given here:

The dramatic turn-around in those cases, the major success in restoring widespread rains and ending droughts, is a matter of published record, with far more documentation than Reich was able to assemble, given the modern data and satellite images available today. But for the current drought, our private fund-raising efforts elicited only around $5000 pledged, and around $1000 actually donated to my non-profit research foundation, OBRL (Orgone Biophysical Research Lab), by the end of 2015. Not even enough to cover the repair costs already spent, much less to mount a major field-work expedition into Southern California and Arizona. The pledged funds were never accepted, as it could not begin to cover the expenses.

Such are the real-world consequences of the chronic slandering of Reich by the "skeptics" and "Wikipedia", and the distorters pushing "orgonite" and "chembusters", all of whom deliberately try to make Reich and the whole subject look ridiculous. And I should also say, not a small amount of slander has been hurled in my direction by the same "skeptics" and other malicious buffoons, not a few of which who like to call themselves "Reichians". Such diverse negative reactions to Reich’s findings have the common themes of running away, or emotional plague attacking through slander and distortions. The discovery of a universe filled with pulsating life-energy, which participates in the formation of clouds and rains, and works also inside the human to govern emotions, perception and biology, is generally "too much" for the average person.

Other factors were involved, however. The water resource agencies and the billionaire farming industry all bet upon El Niño to save them with massive rains. But El Niño didn’t deliver the rains in sufficient quantity. Also, there is too much money to be made with drought. The price for an acre-foot of irrigation water increases dramatically during droughts, making irrigation districts happy. Drought-related funding agencies see their budgets triple or quadruple, and Billions of taxpayer money are devoted to drought issues that would never have been given out otherwise. The "drought experts" become important people, everyone wants to interview them, and they are promoted to higher-paying jobs with inflated budgets. Massive new irrigation and pipeline schemes, and desalinization plants which deliver either small amounts of extra water, or water at very high prices, and which never would be funded without a really severe drought, suddenly are reviewed as "serious proposals". Governments and investors line up to pour Billions into the pockets of the "drought engineers". Then the big farmers collect massive insurance money, often nearly equal to the profits for a good crop harvest, so they are inclined to sit back and relax. All that is stimulated by drought, but is threatened by good natural rains, as could be brought and sustained by authentic cloudbusting work. Meanwhile, the costs for a cloudbusting project as necessary to restore Lake Mead to its normal levels is about that needed for one large agricultural tractor. A pittance for such high-rollers and government agencies, but a small fortune for working-class people, myself included. Current OBRL funds are not sufficient either.

But all those usual "drought activities" fall within the currently-accepted methods of mechanistic science, industry and economics. Everyone is accustomed to them. Media writers also "know" those approaches and write favorably about them. Something so truly new and revolutionary as Reich’s discoveries – the orgone energy and cloudbuster – simply stuns them, they can’t believe it, and so the first impulse is to put it down, ridicule it, slander it. It is not reported on their favored media, or is slandered by that media as on "Wikipedia", so they don’t even get to the point of reviewing the evidence. It is all "too fantastic", no matter what the evidence. My work through OBRL has some of the very best scientific evidence in numerous studies supporting Reich, and on the cloudbuster as well, documented with new data and satellite documentation methods not available in Reich’s time. No matter, no amount of evidence will overcome the will to disbelieve, the urge towards ridicule and sarcasm, the running away, and so forth. Reich wrote about this problem extensively, in discussions on the Emotional Plague of Mankind.

Based upon what I know from more than 40 years of active research in orgone biophysics and the empirical aspects of classical atmospheric science, it is technically easy to end a severe drought, if one has the knowledge and experience. But it is nonetheless extremely laborious and taxing, and also a serious life-or-death enterprise, with heavy responsibilities. We have the right equipment, the best people, the accurate knowledge, and have made atmospheric breakthroughs many times already. But navigating the social desert, the emotional desert, this is a true wilderness for which no device like the cloudbuster can make any breakthrough. The social desert was created by the emotional plague, and is dominated by it. One has to proceed carefully, like walking in a swamp with crocodiles, who worm their way into vital social organizations and institutions.

What is needed is personal contacts with high-up officials who can open doors to funding and logistics, or alternatively, contacts with people of wealth, who can cut a sizeable donation check to our non-profit, to get things moving. We can then figure out our own logistics.

More support for Saharasia

May 15, 2016

More support for Saharasia.

What destroyed the Maya? We have a new clue, in the form of an ancient stalagmite.

Drought-famine and starvation drives social violence and collapse of social structures. In this case, collapse of a very nasty "civilization" of pyramid-builders, thick with heart choppers, self-mutilators, and violent war-lords, all before Columbus showed up. I discuss this in my book, Saharasia.

And truth be told, this new finding is nothing so new, actually, as it was the geographer Elsworth Huntington who firstly identified these major climate shifts in Mesoamerica, in the mid-20th Century. Citations given in my work.

This also helps understand the emphasis of the heart-choppers on rain-making "magic". Didn’t work, no matter how many hearts were chopped out, Nature scorned them and the good rains didn’t return.

Hundreds of smaller cultures across Mesoamerica were decimated, and didn’t take kindly to being constantly raided, kidnapped and hauled back to the tops of pyramids to be butchered, some skinned alive also, all commanded by those wunderful Mesoamericans. Mel Gibson’s movie Apocalypto gave a fairly accurate portrayal of the great cultural differences, between the violent heavily armored heart-choppers and their more peaceful relaxed victims, but the PC brigades in the academy went nuts over it, claimed the ancient pyramid-builders were "peaceful" (not so, they were severely emotional plague), just as the same academy today says about Muslim culture. The peace of the grave, in both cases.

For clarification on how the Mesoamericans came to be so heavily armored and violent prior to the arrival of Columbus and the Europeans, it is covered in my book.

A tip of the hat to Donald Bill for alerting me to this item.
