OBRL Seminar Videos now On-Line at Vimeo

OBRL Seminar Videos now On-Line at Vimeo

Over summer and fall of 2020, I created a new account on Vimeo.com, to present the OBRL – Orgone Biophysical Research Lab’s Video Archive. Into that on-line Archive are now transferred our first batch of original videos, from a 2015 Seminar hosted by OBRL, and held at Southern Oregon University. These were digitally transferred into edited renditions that are now available for viewing at Vimeo. The 2015 Seminar videos present 8 different approximately one-hour lectures by myself and by Tom DiFerdinando, another long-time worker in orgonomy.

In these newly-released seminar videos are presented basic historical details of Reich’s work, expanding on relevant new research which has supported or exactly verified his scientific findings. New connections and insights abound, and are presented in ordinary language for both the serious professional, as well as educated layperson.

Mr. DiFerdinando’s three lectures on "Connecting the Blue Dots" are fascinating materials, revealing Reich’s discovery of the blue orgone energy as a common functioning principle across the realms of biology, atmosphere and astronomy.

In my own lectures, included are some previously-unpublished materials, specifically my efforts to capture orgone energy motions, of flimmering, streaming motions and orgone units, as observed in the OBRL Orgone Darkroom, and in the open atmosphere. Those and a few other things are only now being made public, and are mixed into the videos in discussions on Reich’s history and discoveries. My better-known experimental papers verifying Reich’s orgonomic science are also discussed, and of course, the orgone accumulator, Saharasia and my cloudbusting work in Africa and Israel, are likewise presented. The videos should be of great interest for both newbies to orgonomy, as well as to the the "old hands".

We never had a professional videographer to operate the cameras in the most optimal manner, nor were our video cameras always the "best, most up to date" technology — the originals in the OBRL Archive are a mix of original u-matic, BetacamSP, VHS, Hi-8, Digital8, and more recently 1080p video. The older formats have been digitally upgraded and edited on Mac Final Cut Studio Pro software, with higher-quality still images, or sub-movies, added in to match the lecturer’s video slides.

There is a small charge to access the seminar videos, about $50 for all 8 seminar videos (the original cost was much higher plus your hotel, food and transport). These can now be viewed by on-line streaming at the Vimeo website, but not downloaded so as to preserve our copyrights. One can pay to view any or all the videos over a 30-day period, or view them separately, one at a time for a lesser fee, within a 48-hour window.

There also are some open-access items for free viewing, including an introductory trailer for the OBRL Archive. All payments go to the non-profit Orgone Biophysical Research Lab, towards covering the considerable costs of making and the Vimeo-hosting of these videos, with any excess funds going towards the on-going OBRL research.

I plan to add additional lecture videos of orgonomically-topical lectures by myself and others who came and lectured at OBRL over the years, as well as some unique items donated to OBRL.

To view the paid-for videos, you must make a free account with Vimeo (email and password is required to start), and there also is a "receive updates" weblink to sign up for email notifications of later additions to the OBRL Archive. They can also be viewed on iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast.

Please let me know if you have any difficulty viewing either the free or paid-for videos, which I found worked best on faster computers with the most updated browsers and of course a reasonably good internet bandwidth. You can experiment with the free items to see how well the paid ones would perform on your system.

After 50+ years of work in social, historical and experimental orgonomy, there is quite a lot to share with the younger generations, who basically know more of the distortions and slanders about Wilhelm Reich and orgonomy, than the enduring truths.

Please bookmark, and share this email and the URL link within your own circles of contacts.

Thanks much, and best wishes,

James DeMeo
