As we mentioned in earlier Updates, after the Trust’s busy schedule in 2007 we opted not to have a regular summer conference at Orgonon in 2008.

Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957) Austria
Wilhelm Reich was a psychoanalyst of the Austrian school who studied under Freud, and later became a teacher and investigator of natural scientific phenomena.
As his career developed, he began to study the interaction of space energy to human health and to formulate the various reactions of these key relationships. He was able to identify a form of energy which he named "Orgone" and build devices wich could collect and accumulate this energy.
Orgone energy is the name given him to a specific life energy within and around all living organisms. The existance of orgone energy outside of the living organism in the atmosphere was demonstrated in various test conducted by Reich. The inner life energy is stimulated from the outer orgone energy in the atmosphere. This concept is logical, since nothing can exist within the living organism that did not previously exist in the environment of the living organism.
The color blue is the specific color of orgone energy within and without the organism. Blue is the color seen in all functions which are related to the cosmic or atmospheric orgone energy. Protoplasm of any kind in every cell or bacterium is blue, and cells lose their blueness when they die. Orgone energy penetrates everything at different speeds.
Wilhelm Reich's orgone energy accumulators were in the form of squarish boxes which consisted of alternate layers of organic and metallic materials, such as cotton or cellulose and aluminum. Reich's continuing experiments in this field disclosed that organic materials attract and collect orgone energy from the atmosphere. The metallic material acts to both repel and contain the orgone, and thus the combination of both materials produces an ideal collector or accumulator of orgone energy.
An extraordinary occurance within the orgone accumulator box is the unexplained temperature rise that occurs which cannot be explained by the present Laws of Energy Conservation.
Reich further discovered a motorizing force (high or low potential) within orgone energy (1949) which could be harnessed to propel a special type of motor. He is said to have built a special motor with a rotating armature revolved by entrapped orgone energy, but there is no record available to validate this device.
According to Reich's findings, the so-called "heat waves" that we see shimmering above roads and mountains are not actually heat at all, but orgone energy that does not rise. They will move from west to east, at a speed faster than the earth's rotation. They cause the twinkling of the stars in our sight. Thunderstorms are formed by changes in the concentration of atmospheric orgone energy.
Wilhelm Reich began to get into trouble with the authorities when he attempted to translate the benefits of orgone energy into medical applications, and specifically orgonetic irradiation of the organism (patient). The Wilhelm Reich Foundation was formed for the purpose of promoting the healing effects of applied orgone energy, but started to draw the attention of the F.D.A., who were very skeptical of orgone energy and its application.
While some of Reich's teachings and methods may have been open to question as more information has evolved, the basics of orgone energy have been accepted by most non-establishment scientists who are free-energy activists. Wilhelm Reich was eventually arrested and placed in jail where he remained until his death.
