A Personal Appeal from James DeMeo, PhD  –  Dec. 2018

Dear Friends and Supporters of my research,

Recently an email was circulated with a reference link, detailing my publication in the peer-reviewed science journal Water, about a discovery with profound implications for both classical science and orgone biophysics as made at my laboratory in rural Oregon. Controlled experimental investigations were made into the influences of the orgone energy accumulator (ORAC) upon water, using the methods of optical spectroscopy. This work proved, the ORAC can charge up distilled water to a higher state of sensitivity and structural organization. Such highly charged water, when subjected to excitation by ultraviolet light, yields a subtle blue-colored fluorescence, confirming what Wilhelm Reich discussed with his term orgonotic lumination. This new discovery proceeded from a line of investigation I’ve been following since 2009. Orgone charged distilled water firstly absorbs far ultra-violet or UV radiation in a strong manner, and then fluoresces or luminates in the near-UV and blue frequencies.  Uncharged distilled water does not do this, no UV absorption, no UV-blue fluorescence. Furthermore, and here is where it becomes exciting, a similar spectrographic “signature” was discovered in rainwater and snow-melt from strong Pacific Ocean storms, in other spectroscopic studies of highly-structured water (as with the G. Pollack “EZ” water discovery) and by biologists in water-solutions of nucleic acids and DNA. The ORAC study was unique, however, in how it induces these spectrographic signatures into distilled water, without any direct physical contact, as a radiant field effect. From there, I theorize, as did Reich, that this is possibly the causal mechanism for other blue-glowing and fluorescent phenomenon observed in nature. My findings thereby provide substantial proof that Reich’s orgone accumulator is a powerful device, which has profound effects upon water that is similar to the very “molecules of life”, as well as to basic physico-chemical forces which are at work in atmospheric processes, and in laboratory water-structure experiments.

The published paper can be viewed or downloaded, without charge, from Volume 10 of the Water journal, here:

This new work further confirms Reich’s stature as the scientific pioneer he was, but it is not the first time my work has verified Reich’s research findings, at a high level of scientific inquiry.

Below is outlined my prior research investigating and confirming Reich’s prior body of work, with new discovery, and also a request for your financial support as a donation to my non-profit laboratory, such that other on-going research projects can be continued.  If you already know my past work, then skip down to the section on “Research at OBRL Today”.

If you wish to make a donation right away, please do so here, and thanks very much.

Otherwise, read on.

A Brief History of My Work

Some of you will know, I was the first university student to earn a Master’s and later PhD degree from a mainstream university where Reich’s research was the subject of my open investigations. That was at the University of Kansas (KU), where I made a 2-year study of Wilhelm Reich’s cloudbuster device, through the Geography-Meteorology Department. That study provided strong evidence that the device actually worked, for example showing a strong peak in rainfall across the entire State of Kansas within 24 hours after onset of operations.

I undertook another major project at KU, to earn the PhD degree, a multi-year cross-cultural and geographical investigation which powerfully confirmed Reich’s sex-economic theory of human violence, with multiple new findings. An early period of peaceful human existence was documented in world regions of emerging ancient human cultures and civilizations. Wet and lush, garden-like conditions prevailed across those regions, conditions which were to utterly vanish within a few hundred years, with the onset of a generally ignored but major climate-change towards persisting drought and desert-formation at c.4000-3500 BC. It was the largest climate change to occur since the end of the Pleistocene Ice Age, turning the large territory of Saharasia (North Africa, Middle East, Central Asia) from a well-watered grassland-forest into bone-dry and hyperarid desert. Maps of various cultural indicators for infant-trauma, sex-repression, social violence and organized warfare were produced, affirming one of Reich’s most central findings on their positive correlations, and proving out their causal nature by geographical mapping methods. That work integrated the evidence from several major disciplines – archaeology, history, ethnography, climatology and geography – in a location-specific timeline methodology that was unique to my study. That body of work was, and still is, the largest global cross-cultural study of human sexuality and family life, with related correlates to social violence and war, that had ever been undertaken. Those findings were foundational and explosive, powerfully confirming Reich’s sex-economic clinical and social observations, and even more controversial than the cloudbuster study. My findings were published as summary articles in several mainstream academic journals, and later in a major book: Saharasia: The 4000-3500 BC Origins of Child Abuse, Sex-Repression, Warfare and Social Violence, In the Deserts of the Old World.

Many will know, I survived as a young professor teaching at major universities for about ten years, even as the well-funded and organized “skeptic groups” put me in their cross-hairs, for violent slander attacks just as bad as what Reich experienced, except I was never “investigated” by the FDA nor dragged into courtrooms for my controversial research findings. I also had been studying other 20th-Century scientific pioneers whose work was suggestive of a cosmic energy similar to Reich’s orgone, such as Harold Burr, Giorgio Piccardi, Frank Brown, Dayton Miller and others, writing various articles that argued for the similarities (and differences) between them.

In 1989, with immense public slanders and dirty-tricks committed against me, including a death threat, hounding my work and personal existence, I went independent and moved to California, struggling for another four years to build up my own private institute, the non-profit Orgone Biophysical Research Lab. An affordable property was located in the old-growth forested Greensprings region of rural Southwest Oregon, with similar strong and sweet orgonotic qualities as Reich found at his Orgonon, in the forests of rural Maine.

I wrote the popular Orgone Accumulator Handbook, now into its 3rd edition, educating a new generation of young people to the facts of Reich’s basic life-energy discovery, with plans on building simple orgone accumulators and blankets, and sound guidance on their usage. A new journal was started, Pulse of the Planet, by which to report on my new findings, given a growing Academic blacklisting and black-out which descended upon my work.

My research with the Reich cloudbuster had continued since the years at KU, and with help from volunteers, major droughts were ended in Illinois, the Southeast USA, the Midwest and in California. However, no institutional support was ever given to my research on this subject until after going independent. With a kind donation from Louis Hochberg, for whom the Hochberg Awards program was later set up, a major systematic study of the cloudbuster on pre-determined dates was undertaken in the American Southwestern deserts. That study showed a distinct rainfall-doubling effect over a broad territory, encompassing Southeast California, Southern Nevada and all of Arizona – once again proving the cloudbuster’s influence was exceptional, beyond anything possible through the usual cloudseeding methods. I presented lectures about that project to major scientific groups, such as the Association of American Geographers, and Association for Arid Lands Studies, which produced little more than an alarming disinterest. While my lectures on Saharasian climate changes and the cloudbuster were routinely published and presented in scientific forums, a growing hostility was palpable, which was another reason for my going into private research.

With spreading word about the results of my experimental work, and continued support from volunteers and kind donors, I was invited by the governments of Israel to end a major drought there. The next year, another invitation came from the government of Namibia, stimulated by friends who knew of my research, to help put an end to an extended serious drought. In both cases, of Israel and Namibia, application of Reich’s methods resulted in a quick end – within about 10 days of work – to serious, multi-year droughts. Shortly thereafter, I was asked to lead a team into the Horn of Africa, into Eritrea specifically, to apply Reich’s methods to a serious 30-year drought situation, which had led to a situation of agricultural and economic desperation, mitigated only by international food aid. Our team applied the Reich methods and within a week, almost as a miracle, the skies began to fill with heavy clouds and downpours of rain followed. The long drought was ended. The Eritrean government then invited me to return, on mutual agreement, for a 5-year project and evaluation, after which a public presentation to the scientific community would be made on the results.

From 1994 through 1999, that project was undertaken, with the results of spreading excellent rains over the entire region. Flows down the Nile River were increased such that by 1998, Lake Nasser behind the Aswan High Dam in Egypt began to fill for the first time since its construction in the mid-1960s. Lake Nasser eventually was filled to over-flowing, with excess waters shunted out its spillways into the open Sahara Desert, where five gigantic new lakes were created in formerly barren dry desert depressions – the Toshka Lakes. With continued overflow from Lake Nasser, those lakes grew so large one could not see across them to the other side, and Egypt later exploited them for farming. While a regrettable war situation developed shortly thereafter between Eritrea and Ethiopia, forcing an end to our project, the results were overwhelmingly spectacular, and constituted a major proof of Reich’s methods and genius. Today, unfortunately, the Toshka Lakes are nearly dried up, as the wonderful increase in rains over the period of our work in Eritrea ended two years after the last operations ended. The region has today returned to episodic drought and war-chaos. But you can still see remnants of the Toshka Lakes on Google Earth, or in recent articles on the subject.

I wrote reports and articles on all these projects, some circulated to agricultural organizations, to the United Nations Environmental Program, to academics studying problems in droughts and deserts, and few claimed “open minded” politicians or activist billionaires with a reputation for “caring”. I also published articles and gave lectures on the subject at different scientific-scholarly societies, providing robust data analysis of their results to prove out the exact dates when the experimental work began, and when atmospheric changes and onset of rains occurred. The social reactions to all these efforts, with few exceptions, was one of disbelief, silent back-turning and walking away, or outright hostility bordering on violent emotional explosions. And the ones who responded favorably were already under attack and isolated without funding for their own projects, given related controversies (ie, that desert-dust transport could trigger droughts at a great distance). After spending much of the 1990s doing such hard and difficult field work, and with few exceptions, I retired from the cloudbusting – excepting for mostly failed efforts to raise funds for a multi-year project against the severe USA California and Southwest droughts, which seem to endlessly recur.

Even before this period of international work in some of the world’s most stagnated droughty and desert regions, I always focused upon high-level experimental replications of Reich’s laboratory findings on the orgone accumulator and the orgone energy itself. In this direction, efforts at the new OBRL facility in Oregon allowed for improvements not previously possible. Over that entire 40+ years, I undertook new experimental efforts, bullet-proof from classically-known objections, confirming Reich’s findings on the following:

* A new water evaporation-suppression and humidity effect was documented in the orgone accumulator that was not present in control experiments.

* A replication of Reich’s basic bion experiments, with color microphotographs that were later shown to an International Symposium on Pleomorphism, with published paper and YouTube video.

* The slight warming, thermal anomaly in the orgone accumulator, Reich’s To-T experiment which was the center subject of his contact with Einstein, was approached in a new experimental protocol, proving it was a real effect and no artifact. The To-T effect always stood as a challenge to the 2nd Law of thermodynamics, and my work proved it out in ways more robust and bullet-proof to the usual criticisms than the prior good studies, revealing its central relationship to orgonotic lumination produced by the Sun, but not to daily temperature variation.

* Reproductions of the electroscopical discharge anomaly, wherein a static electroscope is slowed in its discharge rate inside an orgone accumulator with open door, by comparison to a cardboard box with open door. The electrical density inside the accumulator is stronger than in open air, or inside other non-accumulating enclosures, even when the doors are left open for free air circulation.

* Reproduction of the vacuum-GM effect, wherein a Geiger-counter tube soaked in an orgone accumulator would yield variations in its count-activity, by comparison to an uncharged one. My work on this used specialized neutron-counting GM apparatus, thereby suggesting a relationship between orgone energy to the neutron, as the possible “glue” for atomic nuclei.

* I also made the first photos of a blue-glowing VACOR tube since Reich’s time, finding also they could be brought to lumination point merely by stroking with the hand. One electrophysicist who visited the OBRL and witnessed this effect declared “That Can’t Happen!”

* A three year study of orgone-charged mung beans showed they would sprout more quickly and to longer lengths than an un-charged group of beans from the same source, with an approximate 40% growth increase.

* I’ve also undertaken small experimental and historical investigations along the lines of the old ether-drift experiments. A sensitive GPS device was evaluated at OBRL over several years, indicating its “drift error” was something systematic, related to geographical and cosmical coordinates. Several of my research papers re-evaluating the early ether-drift experiments, showing many of them did in fact detect a cosmic ether, have been published. Notably, I have shown how the variations in those ether-drift experiments yield results fully congruent with Reich’s cosmic coordinate system as published in his milestone work Cosmic Superimposition.

Several of my new books have also been published in recent years, beyond Saharasia and the Orgone Accumulator Handbook, often with an historical outlook.

* In Defense of Wilhelm Reich: Opposing the 80-Years’ War of Mainstream Defamatory Slander Against One of the 20th Century’s Most Brilliant Physicians and Natural Scientists
* Marx Engels Lenin Trotsky: Genocide Quotes. The Hidden History of Communism’s Founding Tyrants, in their Own Words. This work was produced as a warning to contemporary “Reichians” who often seem more Marxist than Reichist, as well as to youth culture who too-frequently carry the alarming and fully ignorant sentiment that “Communism is Cool”. It exposes shocking materials which Wilhelm Reich did not know about during his early Marxist period, but which he began to ascertain only during his American period of work, when he became a vocal anti-communist.

Beyond all the above work and activities organized through the OBRL – the overseas expeditions at drought-relief, the laboratory experiments, the publishing of new books and articles, giving lectures at scientific conferences – a series of summer educational seminars was launched during the 1990s and attended by many professionals and young students alike. Up to three weekend seminars and a guided independent study program were offered each summer at OBRL over many years. Invited guest lectures were also given at OBRL by others in scientific or medical orgonomy, and on related matters the list would be too long to easily summarize. Today, these seminars are restricted to one weekend summer event every two years at OBRL.

For those with interests in the exacting details of my work, I have posted PDF copies of my research papers and PowerPoint lecture slides to the big website, where they can be obtained for free readings and downloads. Here:

What I find most amazing is how my approximate 90 research articles on this website are already being read and downloaded by a great many mainstream academics and university students, placing me within the top 1% or 2% of the many millions of global members, who have already reviewed my published articles more than 44,000 times. Without anticipating anything of this sort, my work is stimulating a resurgence of interest in Wilhelm Reich’s science among more open-minded university faculty and students, as well as among the independent researchers. A similar situation has developed on the smaller but influential website, where my materials are also posted for easy access, with more than 34,000 reviews.

I’ve also created a YouTube channel, as a means of public education, which today has around 650,000 item views and more than a 2000 followers.

None of this public attention was planned ahead or expected. It merely happened in the course of doing focused serious experimental work, speaking plainly to the facts when opportunity allowed or required, making my publications and research findings available to the public, and not concealing my strong interests in the subject of Wilhelm Reich and his orgonomic science.

Research at OBRL Today

Today, my work is primarily devoted to laboratory research, writing and lecturing when the opportunity presents itself. But all this new work is limited by the absence of funding. All the attention to my publications has not, unfortunately, opened up the subject to the high-level Mainstream Mandarins who dominate science funding and institutional access. While OBRL in the past acquired funding sufficient to launch overseas projects, and to construct the main laboratory building, mostly this work has developed out of my own financial resources, supplemented by donors who valued my research productivity. Only very rarely has OBRL received funding support from governments or mainstream institutions.

This is why today I am once again reaching out for donor-support of my ongoing and new research and investigations. This appeal is not oriented towards emergency cloudbusting work, as I have made in the past, but rather for support of new laboratory research, now underway and planned for the future at OBRL.

Allow me to briefly discuss that work, which is most exciting and important.

1. I continue to investigate the subject of spectroscopy and how the orgone accumulator can affect the optical characteristics of water and open air. New spectrographic equipment is sorely needed to make broader investigations, to supplement the excellent equipment already used for the water-structure findings. An effort is currently underway attempting to identify the spectral characteristics of open air, inside and outside of the orgone accumulator, to see if the orgone energy in the atmosphere can be identified by its optical characteristics, much as we can sometimes see it with our eyes. This requires a completely different set of instrumentation.

2. A new effort was also initiated around some years ago, a replication of Reich’s orgone motor. Along that line, over decades I experimentally confirmed many foundational studies on atmospheric electricity and similar factors, even reproducing some of the old Tesla experiments. With some disappointment, I also reviewed the larger subject of “free energy”, finding most of the claims to be over-estimated and poorly documented. This included a few large claims being made about the orgone motor itself. I’ve taken a more serious scientific approach. This forced an improvement in my knowledge of electronics, about which I got the basics as a teenager, in constructing amplifiers and radio equipment, a hobby of sorts which today finds application in construction of new electronic circuitry for orgonomic investigations. I’ve acquired several of the old spinner motors Reich used in his original orgone motor experiments. And in related studies, the phenomenon of gravitation as Reich detailed in a few of his last publications, is under renewed experimental investigation. Already several “gravitator” devices have been successfully produced, showing significant motional characteristics, following lines of investigation started by both W. Reich and T. Brown in the 1950s. At some point, a preliminary report will be issued.

A new book on the historical ether-drift experiments is nearing completion, with the preliminary title “The Dynamic Motional Ether and Life-Energy of Cosmic Space”. This work presents the similarities between the older cosmic ether of space, and the cosmic life energy, the orgone energy, and should be published early in 2019. As Reich noted, the older theory of cosmic ether was a useful concept, prematurely discarded. My study of these issues, dating back to the 1970s, indicates the ether was discarded by mainstream astrophysics for political, and not scientific reasons. As my book will report in detail, many diverse scientists have independently measured the cosmic ether, plotting very similar astronomical vectors of ether-drift as to what Reich wrote about in his Cosmic Superimposition. Many scientists have detected this cosmic energy in physical, chemical and biological experiments. Reich was not alone in his opinion.

The future will also bring forth a long delayed book on my cloudbusting experiments, and the controlling nature of the Saharasian Desert Belt on global climate. This is an important correction against the modern-day thought about “global warming” being created by CO2 increases. Also delayed but still planned for the future, my “Saharasia Since 1900” book. An abundance of new research findings has taken precedence in recent years, allowing less time for writing than is desired. But these also are on-track and not forgotten.

My research into Reich’s work and related concepts has been focused and on-going now for 40+ years, starting in 1970, when I began walking down this path as a young undergraduate student. Today, the OBRL facility is an excellent place where this research has continued since 1994, and will continue for many decades into the future. Research along these new paths as laid out above should result in additional new and important findings. I hope you will join with me in this quest and adventure, helping to fund the research, to attend my seminars, and to purchase and enjoy the books and research materials as are periodically offered to the public, as many of you have in the past. And if all the material presented above is new to you, then truly you must get on the OBRL mailing list for future notifications, as is available through the weblinks and pop-up window on all my websites. This is not a discussion group, to eat up your time, but an occasional one-way notification channel from OBRL to you, and we never share our email lists with anyone.

Your Support is Necessary, Critical, and Much Appreciated

Today I ask those who are able to make a donation for the future of orgonomy, to help fund my research and sustenance of the good work being undertaken at OBRL. If everyone reading this could give a $50 or $100, or greater donation, based upon the several thousand people on my mailing lists, that would bring a sum sufficient for OBRL needs over several years into the future, and all immediate necessary equipment needs would be met. Again, all donations to OBRL this time will be fully reserved for research here at my institute in Oregon, and not for field work anywhere else. OBRL also has no regular employees taking a salary, so donations go directly to equipment and other research-related necessities.

OBRL is a 501-c-3 non-profit research and educational foundation, approved by the IRS for tax-deductible donations. Please make your donation as soon as possible, for funding of this important research, and also consider to include OBRL into your will or testament.

Announcement: New publication in Water journal

November 20, 2018

Announcement: New publication in Water journal

I’m pleased to announce the publication of my article
"Anomalous ‘Living’ Spectrographic Changes in Water Structures: Explorations in New Territory", in Volume 10 of Water: Multidisciplinary Research Journal.

The article summarizes work that began in 2009 investigating Reich’s phenomenon of orgonotic lumination in water, using spectrographic methods. It is a powerful confirmation of Reich’s late-period research on the nature of light, and how water can, under high orgonotic charge, be excited into a luminous condition.

The article is available either as an on-line page, or as a PDF download, as per the above link. It was submitted in March of this year, accepted in September, and published only a few days ago. The abstract is provided:


Unusual spectrographic signatures can be induced into water by radiant non-contact material-environmental influences. Far-ultraviolet (UV) absorption and near-UV/blue fluorescence properties were observed to appear in distilled water samples by charging inside the controversial Wilhelm Reich Orgone Accumulator (ORAC), where no chemical or material contacts were made between the charging ORAC device and the water being treated. Similar spectral absorbance and fluorescence reactions were identified in natural rainwater and snowmelt samples, being nearly identical in spectral properties to the ORAC-charged water samples. Spectral similarities, as found in other studies of water structure or activation – such as exclusion-zone (EZ) water samples, and in aqueous solutions of DNA – have also been identified. These repeating spectral absorbance and fluorescence similarities as found in such diverse experimental or natural influences, involving both direct physical contact and non-contact radiant induction, are postulated to indicate a substantive cosmic energy which infuses into favorably-exposed water. Widely-observed natural optical phenomena of a similar blue color, almost uniformly detected by spectral intensity measures suggestive of water-structure fluorescence reactions, but rarely considered as such, are also discussed. Examples include certain exceptionally blue mountain lakes, blue glowing atmospheres over certain mountain ranges, blue-glowing waters and hot springs with healing properties, and blue glacial ice blocks and snow holes, as observed under both direct sunlight and overcast conditions. Certain blue-glowing astrophysical phenomena are also considered, which take on a new light given the more recent discoveries on the abundance of water in the universe.

Feel free to share this announcement within your social media networks. The article is available for reading and download, without charge, as Water journal is open-access.

My personal thanks to the editorial board of Water, for their open reception of these new and controversial findings.

The California Drought and Wildfires

November 9, 2018

The California Drought and Wildfires

I am horrified by the situation of fires burning all over in California. And yet, being located in Oregon, without the ability to launch a major cloudbusting project south into the fire zones, there is little I can do about the situation. My network of CORE associates also lives far from California, and we lost our cloudbusting partner station in San Diego more than a year ago. I tried many times since the 1980s to set up a kind of “cloudbusting fire department” for such emergency work, but could never gain sufficient financial support to make it happen.

All of this devastation now on-going for years, was 100% preventable, and once started, could have been confined by appropriate cloudbusting methods which I developed against such coastal and inland drylands wildfires many years ago. Many solicitations for support were given to different California and other Southwestern regional government agencies, but not once was any kind of interest shown – except when the Santa Barbara newspaper slandered my efforts. If there was an honest media left somewhere to report on such things, where people burned out would learn about a method of fire-fighting that would be both preventative and remedial, but which had been so systematically suppressed, censored and ridiculed, it would create a national scandal.

In frustration, I wrote the following on my Facebook page, and felt to share it more widely. Some documentary weblinks are also provided below.

Woolsey Fire Blackens Malibu Sky as Thousands Flee, Homes Destroyed

Camp Fire devastates Paradise near Chico – businesses, church, numerous homes burn

People in California should know, over DECADES when I lived on the West Coast, I tried to gain the interest of California authorities to sponsor my cloudbusting work to stimulate a moister situation that would oppose such massive fires, and to fill large reservoirs as with Lake Mead. The response to my efforts, if I could summarize, was either total silence, or spit in the eye. I learned that the California bureaucracy loves drought, and hates natural rain. During drought, the various drought-related bureaucracies get enormous sums for their activities, which basically do nothing to change the situation for the better. Their leaders get interviewed repeatedly on the news media, and become big shots. Farmers are happy for a time, even with crops wilting in the fields, as they can collect insurance while sitting back and doing nothing. Water managers and reservoir-pipeline owners get a higher price for an acre-foot of water. Meteorologists get more air time, and also become bigger-shots. Media hacks have something more to report, with serious tones, as homes burn by the dozens or hundreds. When natural rain falls, the budgets for different water-resource agencies are cut, and their bureaucrats become unknowns. Water prices drop and restored farm-crops get a higher price than before the drought. The head of one of California’s top drought agencies gets a salary of $400,000 per year, which is as much as I once proposed to several bureaucracies for a multi-year project with several cloudbusting stations and workers. Later I dropped the price to half that, then a quarter. Silence continued. At present our resources can’t even support an emergency mission to anyplace else, as my old 1993 Astrovan and 1983 Toyota pickup are no longer reliable to tow the trailers. For a comparison, the average California farm cooperative may spend a half-million on purchase of one large agricultural tractor. One home burned in expensive California towns may cost as much.

At some point I will write up such experiences in a book, along with how my cloudbusting team in 1991-92 ended a 12-year drought in Israel, filling the Sea of Galilee to overflowing. An even larger effort, led by me with an international team of professionals, did the same in a five-year project in the SE corner of the Sahara Desert, starting in 1994, ending a 30-year drought and restoring good rains yearly across a large region of Ethiopia, Sudan and Eritrea. That effort brought so much rain that it filled the Nile River tributaries, filled Lake Nasser behind the Aswan Dam to overflowing for the first time in its history, with five gigantic new overflow lakes out in the open Sahara, the Toshka Lakes. Nothing like it happened in written history, not since the pre-Saharasian period. But still, the meteorologists and EP functionaries in the UN Environmental Program, US State Department and overseas officials in the benefiting nations turned their backs. Emotionally it was like they all suddenly hated natural rains!

Over subsequent years, the Toshka lakes evaporated away, but their remnants can still be seen on satellite images. I wrote scholarly papers on all those operations, and others, published them in both private and mainstream science journals. The response was mostly… crickets. Of course it was nearly unbelievable for those who are unfamiliar with Reich’s discoveries. Reich was murdered for his findings, and over decades plague characters both outside and a few within orgonomy have tried to do the same to me, for making serious study and applications of those discoveries. I am today basically erased from mention within “official orgonomy” whose organizations have become therapy-training institutes, lacking in scientific expertise with few exceptions. Mainstream science has been worse in this regard, and such as Wikipedia have totally banned mention of my work, even in small citation. New findings in the sciences have an even more difficult time than in the 1970s, when I produced the first-ever high-level university studies validating Reich’s science.

Today, I no longer believe we can have a large breakthrough of this work into the public eye, at least not without it being slandered and mocked by EP media, which by itself works a serious damage to extinguish germinal efforts. Every film about Reich, without exception, makes short mention of Reich’s biophysics, and most distort and question his scientific legitimacy, or twist it politically. Authentic open criticism is avoided and forbidden, being substituted with angry attack, hate and slander. As the tragedy deepens, old friends go haywire, turn EP and attack from the back, unexpectedly. Irrationally spreads, making difficult work even more difficult. Turbulent times. We work for the Children of the Future. The modern tragedy continues, and deepens.

The $39 book is offered, internationally with few exceptions, for $12.95 plus shipping. To purchase at this low price, you must get it directly from our own on-line bookstore:
More information on the subject of the Saharasia discovery. and the book sale, is given here:

Seminars 2019

* A one-day Weekend Seminar will be offered next March in Germany. The exact date, location and subject are not yet fixed. I don’t get to Europe very often, and am willing to present material on the interests of those who would attend, be it on my Saharasia discovery, Bion experiments, the Orgone Accumulator, Orgone Physics, Cloudbusting, my new Water Research, or Reich’s (and my own) UFO observations and research on gravitation. This is a good opportunity for both newcomers and serious students of orgonomy. If you are interested to possibly attend, send me a short email marked "Germany Seminar", along with your primary subject interests.

* A two-day Seminar will be offered early next Summer. The seminar will be held at the OBRL facility near Ashland, Oregon, with lectures and demonstrations, and various opportunities for open discussions on aspect of both social and experimental physical orgonomy. The subject of the Seminar has not yet been fixed, nor has the date. Probably in late May or early June. To stay informed on this event, keep on this mailing list, and check the OBRL Events Page periodically:

* A one-day international Webinar round-table discussion may be offered for serious students of orgonomy, for those studying in the universities or similarly engaged in serious research. This would allow for open exchange of ideas on such things as how to navigate research projects on orgonomic subjects into the mainstream of science, difficulties encountered, and also for advice on specific points of research and methodology in orgonomic science. The event would take advantage of the new service offered by which is very easy to use for anyone with a computer having a microphone, videocam, and internet connection of sufficient speed. You can test your system here: If it works for you, and if interested, send me a separate email marked "Webinar".

Forthcoming Publications
to be announced in the near future

* One of my research articles recently cleared peer-review for publication in a mainstream science journal, and will soon become available for on-line viewing. This is a major 30+ page article summarizing many years of research, detailing changes in the spectroscopic properties of water charged up inside the orgone accumulator. It is a new discovery that provides substantial support for Wilhelm Reich’s orgonomic science. I’ll have another announcement on that in a few weeks. In the meantime, here is a YouTube lecture on this subject, with preliminary info:
"Anomalous Living Spectrographic Changes in Structured Water"

* New Book in the works, hopefully by the end of this year, or early next

James DeMeo Podcast Interview on Saharasia, this Sunday Night

October 6, 2018

Podcast Interview with James DeMeo on Saharasia, this Sunday Night

Tomorrow, October 7th, Sunday at 9 PM to midnight, Pacific Time, Dr. James DeMeo will be hosted for an interview with Richard Hoagland, on his Saharasia discovery. The weblink for tuning in to the podcast, or getting it later on, is

Dr. DeMeo’s controversial research findings, requiring 7 years of investigation and field work on two continents, uncovered an early peaceful period in human pre-history, prior to c.4000-3500 BC. His findings show this peaceful condition ended with the onset of a major shift in climate at that same period in the 4th millennium, from wet to hyperarid conditions across what is today identified as the Saharasian Desert Belt – stretching across North Africa, the Middle East, and into Central Asia. This enormous desert, stretching more than half-way around the Earth, was once well-watered, with massive rivers and giant lakes, thick with wildlife, large and small. It also was the home to early hunter-gatherer and pastoral societies. That massive desert region is still with us today, and its shift from wet to dry was the largest climate change epoch to occur since the end of the last major Ice Age. This event of major desert-spreading fractured emerging human societies, leading to famine, starvation, abandonment of early settlements, and mass migrations, all of which are documented in Dr. DeMeo’s work. Out of this early disaster and chaos came the origins of organized and persisting, institutionalized social violence and warfare.

The Saharasian discovery also included the largest-ever global cross-cultural survey of ethnographic/anthropological data on human sexual and family life, the status of women, marriage customs, slavery, castes, organized religion and military structures, with the first global geographic maps of those data. The finding confirmed how serious infant and childhood trauma, with attending serious sexual repression, leads to social violence and war. And, the most violent cultures identified by relatively modern anthropology are still found within this same Saharasian Desert region.

Saharasia was the cradle out of which human violence firstly emerged in any large measure, which spread outwards over the millennia in mass-migrations and conquest invasions, to destroy peaceful and egalitarian societies around the world. Pre-Columbian ocean voyages figure into the transmission of violence from the Old World across the oceans and into the Americas. There is more, but you’ll have to read the explosive book on this important scientific discovery, and listen to the podcast. Dr. DeMeo’s findings were produced in the 1980s when he served as professor in the universities. It was subjected to rigorous peer-review, with a quadruple-blind analytical procedure, and published in scientific journals. However, his work also suffered an academic "black-out" due to its controversial and "politically incorrect" nature.

We are having another sale for new copies of my book "Saharasia" through the end of October, for $12.95 plus shipping. The regular price is between $34 to $39 retail, so this is a great savings, at a lower price than can be found elsewhere, and close to our own costs.

To purchase, go to our on-line bookstore, and look for the Saharasia link on the left-side column:
Domestic USA orders will have the shipping charge automatically calculated. International orders must firstly order and pay for the book, after which the shipping charges will be computed and sent to you with instructions for a separate payment.

For those who do not know, the book Saharasia summarizes a 7-year scientific study on human behavior, sexuality and family life, with correlated factors of social violence. It was and still is the largest global cross-cultural study on such issues that has ever been undertaken, with the first geographical mapping of ethnographic/anthropological data. It was peer-reviewed by numerous scholars for accuracy before publication, and is based on Wilhelm Reich’s sex-economic theory of human behavior. As such, it was a powerful vindication of Reich’s clinical findings on genitality, revealing its strong predictive capacities for identifying violent versus peaceful cultures.

Unfortunately, after an initial period of enthusiastic acceptance, this work was blockaded and censored from open discussion in the major geographical, anthropological and psychological journals, though several peer-reviewed articles later did appear. Today, the subject is erased from existence by Google and their pawns at Wikipedia. The Western academic world generally thereafter fell under the sway of "political correctness", and the illusion of "value free social science", where every culture on the planet was deemed to be "equally good", in spite of obvious evidence of psychopathic totalitarian violence and mass murdering in some, while peaceful egalitarian characteristics existed in others. Saharasia was produced in 1986, well before the onset of modern Islamic expansionism and conquest, and for which the events of 9-11-2001 stand as a general Islamic Declaration of War. Saharasia therefore hardly mentions Islamic culture, and yet as shown in the cross-cultural geographical maps, the regions of highest world violence, in family and social structure as well as in war-making, are clearly identified across the Islamic world. This large region of high violence is also characterized by the most hyperarid and extreme desert environment on the planet.

In addition to the cross-cultural review, there is an ambitious global historical and geographical-climatological review from ancient times up unto around 1900 AD. This part of the study was most eye-opening, as it demonstrates the existence of an early period of peaceful human conditions, and how the large Saharasian Desert Belt – stretching across North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia – was once a well-watered grassland-forested biome, thick with every kind of wildlife, and running with large rivers and gigantic lakes. All that changed, including human character structure and social violence, when Saharasia began to dry out and convert into harsh desert at around 4000-3500 BC. Saharasia is thereby additionally a profound discovery on the ancient origins of human emotional armoring, violence and warfare in an epoch of massive desert formation. Social violence and war are clearly shown to predominate after this relatively late climate-change event in human pre-history, being very rare or non-existent before it. Armoring, violence and warfare are thereby shown to be unnatural conditions for the human species.

Saharasia thereby provides a strong bridge of understanding between the clinical and behavioral work of Reich into archaeology, clmate-change studies, history, anthropology and psychology. Because the objective and systematically-developed material in Saharasia has challenged nearly every other theory of human behavior, and much else, it has garnered as much hatred and opposition as appreciation and support. I reference it repeatedly in my social media but the cost of the book has often been prohibitive for most people. So I am happy to make it available once again at a lower price, close to our own costs.

This reduced price is also available for both single or multiple copies, for individuals, organizations and bookstores, so if you have friends or are connected with an organization having an interest in Wilhelm Reich and orgonomy, and in my work, now is the time to purchase. It is also an excellent gift for students, young and old, and for friends

Once Again….

Love, Work and Knowledge: The Life and Trials of Wilhelm Reich
Glenn Orkin and Kevin T. Hinchey (New York, New York)

Four days before the outbreak of World War II, Dr. Wilhelm Reich, a prominent Austrian psychiatrist and an outspoken anti-Nazi, arrived in New York to teach at the New School for Social Research. Yet, despite his university position, and his renown, four U.S. government agencies moved to censor Reich’s work. His books and research journals were banned by a Federal Court order in the 1950’s. Integrating primary materials, scholarly interviews, and eye-witness accounts, Love, Work, and Knowledge: The Life and Trials of Wilhelm Reich, presents a narrative of Reich’s life and work, to explore the events that led up to this heinous example of censorship in America. 2018; 100 min.

With a Post-Screening Panel Discussion featuring: James Strick, Professor and Chair, Program in Science, Technology and Society, Franklin and Marshall College, and author of Wilhelm Reich, Biologist (Harvard University Press, 2015); Joseph Heckman, Professor of Soil Science, Rutgers University; and Tom DiFerdinando, an orgonomic researcher, and Independent Pain, Injury, Stress and Trauma Therapist.

New Info (for many of our viewers)

There are a lot of new people viewing my blog pages, many who probably don’t know much detail about my work. So, for starters, I invite them to view my different youtube videos, some are lectures from scientific conferences, but the two which most people find of interest are:

* "Wilhelm Reich and the Orgone Energy"
* "Wilhelm Reich’s Bion-Biogenesis Discoveries: Experimental Verifications".

Take a look at your leisure:

Also the two books mentioned in those videos are still available for purchase, The Orgone Accumulator Handbook: Wilhelm Reich’s Life Energy Science… and Heretics Notebook: Emotions, Protocells, Ether-Drift and Cosmic Life Energy.

Both can be purchased from on-line bookstores internationally, or directly from our own on-line bookstore:

If you haven’t purchased them, you are missing out on some of the best information about Reich and authentic contemporary orgonomy available.

I’ll follow up with more info shortly.
