SPECIAL SALE ON SAHARASIA, THROUGH THE END OF OCTOBER

September 22, 2018

SPECIAL SALE ON SAHARASIA,
THROUGH THE END OF OCTOBER.

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)

September 5, 2018

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:
* https://www.youtube.com/user/naturalenergyworks/videos

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:
* http://www.naturalenergyworks.net

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.
