History of Orgone & Orgonite

In short, in approximately 1939 a close associate of Dr. Sigmund Freud named Dr. Wilhelm Reich discovered a type of energy that he called Orgone. There are many names that this energy is referred to in the world today. Some of them are as follows:

  • Prana (Vedic Tradition/India)
  • Qui, Chi (Chinese)
  • Ether (Ancient Greece and Nobel Prize winning science)
  • Vril, Od (Germanic mythology)
  • Zero Point Energy (Dr. Hal Puthoff)
  • Torsion Fields (Dr. Nicolai Kozyrev)

And many more.

Dr. Reich’s work was interrupted in 1956 when he was imprisoned for defying a court injunction making him stop curing cancer and other ailments using his Orgone Collection chamber/devices. After his imprisonment he died of a heart failure (draw your own conclusions).   All of his work was confiscated and destroyed although many of his books survive to this day discussing this work.

Basically Orgone energy is an all permeating energy that exists everywhere; the origin of all energy, origin of matter, biological energy, life energy, etc. Dr. Reich discovered that living cells had a faint blue “aura” around them and he was able to show this with a high resolution microscope. Unhealthy cells would have different colors such as grey.

Professor James DeMeo reproduced the work of Dr. Reich and went several steps further by creating what he called proto-amoeba (Dr. Reich called “bions”- life like organisms) in a sterile environment. These proto-amoeba were created on inorganic material (iron filings) within a hyper sterile environment while exposing the iron filings to high intensities of orgone.

The iron filings were heated to red hot then immersed into a chloride solution. After 2 to 3 months of exposing these samples to concentrated orgone energy this “life” would appear. This could be replicated again and again. These were not organisms in the classical definition, but “energy organisms”. This appears to be the genesis of life from non-living matter according to Dr. Reich.



Very little is known about the original design of the Orgone motor designed by Dr. Reich. James DeMeo managed to reproduce a functional motor design of the Orgone motor showing that energy is in fact produced or “pulled from thin air” (technically it’s not but it would appear that way).

The Science

I’m not going to get deeply into the science of how these effects may or may not work. I will leave that to the experts or to those who are enthusiastic about the topic. I am providing a little information to show that the crystals used in organite have a purpose and are not only just “to look pretty”. Therefore the configuration, types of crystals used, and whether a coil is used (or not), does in fact make a difference.


This is the property that is caused when encasing crystals used in orgonite in resin. The process applies pressure to the stones as it hardens causing piezoelectricity. Quoted from Wikipedia:

Piezoelectricity Is the electric charge that accumulates in certain solid materials (such as crystals, certain ceramics, and biological matter such as bone, DNA and various proteins)[1] in response to applied mechanical stress. The word piezoelectricity means electricity resulting from pressure. It is derived from the Greek piezo or piezein (πιέζειν), which means to squeeze or press, and electric or electron, which means amber, an ancient source of electric charge.[2] Piezoelectricity was discovered in 1880 by French physicists Jacques and Pierre Curie.[3]

The piezoelectric effect is understood as the linear electromechanical interaction between the mechanical and the electrical state in crystalline materials with no inversion symmetry.[4] The piezoelectric effect is a reversible process in that materials exhibiting the direct piezoelectric effect (the internal generation of electrical charge resulting from an applied mechanical force) also exhibit the reverse piezoelectric effect (the internal generation of a mechanical strain resulting from an applied electrical field). For example, lead zirconate titanate crystals will generate measurable piezoelectricity when their static structure is deformed by about 0.1% of the original dimension. Conversely, those same crystals will change about 0.1% of their static dimension when an external electric field is applied to the material. The inverse piezoelectric effect is used in production of ultrasonic sound waves.[5]

Piezoelectricity is found in useful applications such as the production and detection of sound, generation of high voltages, electronic frequency generation, microbalances, to drive an ultrasonic nozzle, and ultrafine focusing of optical assemblies. It is also the basis of a number of scientific instrumental techniques with atomic resolution, the scanning probe microscopies such as STM, AFM, MTA, SNOM, etc., and everyday uses such as acting as the ignition source for cigarette lighters, push-start propane barbecues, and quartz watches.


Specifically related to Quartz:

Chemically, quartz is a compound called silicon dioxide. Many materials can be formed into plates that will resonate. However, quartz is also a piezoelectric material: that is, when a quartz crystal is subject to mechanical stress, such as bending, it accumulates electrical charge across some planes.

Quartz has a further advantage in that its size does not change much as temperature fluctuates. Fused quartz is often used for laboratory equipment that must not change shape along with the temperature, because a quartz plate’s resonance frequency, based on its size, will not significantly rise or fall. Similarly, since its resonator does not change shape, a quartz clock will remain relatively accurate as the temperature changes.
