Subject: PLEASE SUPPORT OBRL
Dear Friend of Orgonomy, and of OBRL,
Twenty-eight years ago, I founded the Orgone Biophysical Research
Laboratory (OBRL) as a means to support my research into Wilhelm
Reich's orgone biophysical and sociological discoveries. Since
then, this work has relied upon the generosity of sympathetic donors
As participants at past OBRL Seminars, readers of our publications
(Pulse of the Planet, Heretic's Notebook, Saharasia, Orgone
Accumulator Handbook) and subscribers to the OBRL-News internet
postings, you are familiar with my own research, as well as the OBRL
circle of informal associates, including laboratory findings,
desert-greening field work, and educational efforts aimed at
maintaining clarity and furthering Reich's work.
Over many years, I have personally maintained an emphasis upon
bringing my own research findings which support Reich, into mainstream
university conferences and scientific scholarly society meetings, such
as the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science).
Over the last five years, an especially focused effort has been made
in this regard, resulting in many presentations of even the
controversial orgone energy and cloudbusting work into mainstream
scientific venues, with numerous invited articles as a consequence.
This sustained effort has melted down at least some of the mainstream
resistance to orgonomic research. An in-depth "OBRL Progress
Report" from a few years ago appears in Pulse of the
Planet #5, p.251-257:
A Report on one of our past year's Summer Seminars is also
now posted to internet:
And a Booklet of Abstracts is also available for the 2005
Summer Conference on New Research in Orgonomy.
All of this important work, our seminars and publications, as well as
the maintenance and development of OBRL offices and website, requires

We request that you, as a valued participant in our efforts,
please consider sending a financial contribution. Your donation
will help us continue with this vitally important work and our
innovative services, which include the following:
* Laboratory Studies on the Orgone Energy. The current
focus is upon the Orgone Accumulator Thermal Anomaly - readings of a
nearly constant 0.3 deg C. with anomalous spikes of up to 5 full
degrees C., have been recorded.
* Historical and Analytical Research, on the subject of
"Ether-Drift" research since the 1900s, including the work
of Dayton Miller, and their relationship to the findings of Reich and
others on cosmic orgone energy, and planetary/atmospheric
* Field Research with the Reich Cloudbuster. Reich's
atmospheric discoveries have been cautiously and productively applied
to end severe droughts in the American Southwest, Namibia, Israel, and
Eritrea. This work is only possible with significant help from
* Archaeological and Historical Research on
Saharasia, Peaceful Societies and the "Origins of
* The On-Line Bibliography on Orgonomy (1920 to the
present) posted to the OBRL web site, available globally without
* Video/DVD Archives. An effort is now underway to
preserve our considerable archives of videotaped lectures and
documentation of field expeditions and laboratory work onto
digital DVD, for permanent archival and safekeeping.
* Books and Publications, including our in-house
journal Pulse of the Planet, continue to spread accurate and
timely information supporting Reich's discoveries world-wide. My
new book Greening Deserts is also under organization, along
with another issue of Pulse.
* Greensprings Conference & Seminars. Held every
summer at the OBRL Greensprings Center near Ashland, Oregon,
since 1996. In Summer 2005, we made a special new
offering, of a Conference on New Research in Orgonomy, with an
international list of presenters.

free on-line internet newsletters, which circulate our general
announcements, as well as many rare and lesser-known items of public
