Advice to Students of Orgonomy Aiming for the Universities

March 4, 2017

Advice to Students of Orgonomy Aiming for the Universities

In response to a discussion on facebook, I wrote the following, which may be of wider interest.
https://www.facebook.com/jamesdemeophd

++++++

Working with Reich’s ideas in the universities is not an easy thing. But it is possible. I was the first young scientist to earn a graduate degree (Master’s and Doctorate, 1979 and 1986) while openly investigating Reich’s work at a mainstream university, where I produced two major studies that proved the accuracy of his findings. I was able to do this only with the support of interested faculty. That is critical, to have that support from an interested faculty member, or the young student cannot do much in the Academy. I served as professor for around 10 years, always being very open about my interests in Reich, continuing with serious and productive orgonomic research, before the attacks by the "skeptic clubs" eventually made it impossible to continue. So it is not impossible to make an inroad within the Academy with an open interest in Reich, though the risks can be substantial.

On the other hand, openly pursuing a study or research into Reich’s orgonomic work, and obtaining tenure, nobody has so far been successful in doing that. I know several professors who hold deep interests in Reich, several with very good research on Reich and bions or orgone energy, but they kept their interests in Reich quiet, and did not make open expression of their interests until after gaining tenure, a lengthy process. I wasn’t willing to do that, to wait so long. It was my choice, and made for some rough times, as well as providing substantial rewards.

After eventually bailing out of the academic system, I went on to form my own research and educational institute, the Orgone Biophysical Research Lab. Since doing so, I got more support for my research and more invitations to lecture in universities and do field work, than I had ever got during my years as professor. Based on my experience, the young student today who has not yet any family burdens but has a passion for orgonomic science, should be encouraged to take some risks in the universities. They can always fall back upon more conventional research. Firstly of course to study hard and learn-understand the conventional science, but especially during graduate work, to openly seek a department where they could follow their interests and openly bring Reich’s work into serious scientific investigation.

Only the young can do this, I am convinced. Waiting for existing professors to show an interest in Reich, who rose to high positions by decades of bowing to mainstream authority, or constructing bibliographies of basically anti-orgonomic claims, waiting for the high-ups in the National Academy to suddenly read Reich and declare him to be a genius and undertake unbiased investigation… that is surely unrealistic, rather like Waiting for Godot, or for the Second Coming of Christ, to "save us". The hope for the future, in all things, is with the brave and clear-minded genital youth. I am reminded here of Reich’s statue of "Man Leaping the Gap". Of course today, it is men and women.

Cheers, J.D.

SUMMER CONFERENCE AT ORGONON
http://wilhelmreichtrust.org/update_16_12.html

July 10-14, 2017 – RANGELEY, MAINE
THE VOICE OF WILHELM REICH

The Wilhelm Reich Museum is offering a unique opportunity to participate in a conference with Reich himself.

Reich recorded a series of lectures and meetings with his students between 1949 and 1955. Now "The Voice of Wilhelm Reich" will present five of those audio tapes for study and discussion:

The importance of Method in Scientific Research and Reich’s Discovery of the Armor
Reich Speaks of Freud
Problems of A New Medicine
The Oranur Experiment
Man’s Roots in Nature

The tapes will be introduced by science historian James Strick, Ph.D., author of Wilhelm Reich, Biologist (Harvard U. Press, 2015).

Programs will take place during the morning hours and there will be special evening activities. Afternoons will be free so that participants can vacation in the beautiful Rangeley Lakes Region in the Western Mountains of Maine

SAHARASIA, Once Again, $10, Free shipping

February 11, 2017

SAHARASIA, Once Again, $10, Free shipping

Once more, we are offering copies of Saharasia for $10 each (normally $34 to $39 each), from now through the 1st of March, with free shipping within the USA. To obtain this special offer in the USA only (including AK and HI), see this weblink.
https://obrlnews.wordpress.com/2016/11/10/discounted-sales-on-saharasia/

USA
Shipping is included in this price, and you can purchase as many copies of Saharasia as you wish, to share with friends or family. This is a special offering made on rare occasions only through my social media. As indicated on the above weblink, payment must be mailed to me by check, with a postmark no later than March 1st.

CANADIANS/EUROPEANS:
I will also extend a similar offering to Canada, UK and EU destinations. You must buy the book as usual from our Natural Energy Works website and shopping cart, at the usual price, but as your destination is outside the USA, it will bypass the usual shipping calculations.
http://www.naturalenergyworks.net

In some cases, as in S. America or Africa, reliable shipping is quite expensive, so we cannot make the free shipping offer in those places.

So that’s $10 bucks each free shipping in the USA, and the normal price of $34 each free shipping international to Canada, UK and EU.

This is a limited offering, in our efforts to make the Saharasian discoveries more widely known, and clear out needed storage space at our facility.

Thanks for your attention, and don’t forget to consider the forthcoming seminars in Germany and Oregon, described here:

PS. The “Danger Keep Back” sign given below is from the edge of Crater Lake, with a long drop down to the water. That lake holds the bluest water in the world. That is a sign of good healthy orgone energy charge, as noted by Reich, and proved out in my own water spectroscopy experiments with orgone-charged water. It is also a euphemism for orgonomy in general, that its truths are often “too hot” for most people to handle, causing emotional discombobulation and vertigo (or as Reich noted, “falling anxiety”) especially for those steeped in “normal” politically-corrected scientism and culture. “Dangerous truths”!  Hope you can make it.

from James DeMeo, PhD
http://www.orgonelab.org/OBRLFundraiser.pdf

Dear Friends, Subscribers and Supporters,

For our 2016 Fundraiser, attached is a PDF document that presents many details about my 45 years of work in orgonomy, both before and after the founding of the Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory (OBRL) in 1978.

I appeal to you, the reader and supporter of Reich’s research legacy, to review my work as detailed in the following document, which has color photographs and weblinks, and can be downloaded from here:

Your Support Requested, for Orgonomic Science and Research
http://www.orgonelab.org/OBRLFundraiser.pdf

There are few research programs of equal productivity and merit underway around the world, with such a clear and uncompromising dedication to Reich’s original sex-economy and orgone biophysical findings. And fewer still with a solid record of fruitful accomplishment, of experimental verifications and applications of Reich’s discoveries. The PDF document gives a good overview of this record, as well as a discussion of newer projects and research underway, needing your support and assistance.
