Modern science went off the rails starting in the 1830s, when Faraday
discovered that rotating wires in the field of a magnet induced a current
that flowed along the wires. He jumped to the wrong conclusion, that his
Faradic current was the primary force and what had previously been know
as electric fluid was only a secondary manifestation.
Ever since, there has developed a whole technology of faridic
current, while the real primary force is denigrated as static electricity
and almost ignored. If science had stayed on the original track, we would
now have almost 200 years further advancement along the lines begun in
the 1930s by Reich, but stalled at his death due to the lack of
acceptance by the mainstream, a lack of acceptance due only in part to
the differences between mainstream and orgonomic theories and in no small
part also to the eratic personality of Reich himself, along with his
unfortunate habit of including his personal opinions on such other,
untestable, and thereefore unscientific topics as sex, childraising,
psychotherapy, and politics as a part of the same package.
Meanwhile, in the 1830s again, the chemical industry was first able to
synthesize organic compounds, giving the impression that life, formerly
thought to be due to a vital force, was only a matter of chemicals. This
remains the basis of all modern biology and medicine, while the much more
important energetic factors are ignored.
But science was delt a third blow when it went from being based on direct
observation of nature to being stuck in strict experimental procedures
impossible for an average observer without special and expensive
equipment. No more hobbyists like Van Leuenhoek or Thomas Jefferson are
now able to compete with the big, well-financed laboratories that
determine what shall be consider science and what shall not.
So science has gone from observations of the visible world that any
inteelligent person can make to observations of artificial set-ups that
reveal nothing of the real world, but only more and more of a
fantasy-world that exists only in the artificial set-up of the
But the cult that has grown up around Tesla over the last 30 years is a
pathological hero-worship that has little to do with reality either.
Tesla did not work with the ether or with any concept of a biological
vital force. He was, in fact, one of the founders of the modern era of
electrical technology, the Faradic current era, and all his work is now
in everyday common use. Far from being the great genius of legend, he did
not even invent the means of using alternating current. That was done by
William Stanley a full year before Tesla stole the idea from him and
presented it to the gullible New York reporters as his own.
The Teslaphiliacs have created a cult of
Tesla-worshipers that lives in a fantasy-world of instant gratification
by means of free energy devices that magically grant wishes, lacking all
grounding in the real world and how the background energy of the universe
really functions. The free-energy enthusiasts start from trying to make a
machine to do what they want it to do, instead of starting by observing
how nature does things and then trying to imitate it. They may sometimes
get a wheel to turn around, but a real understanding of how the ether
works and how it interacts with matter will still elude them.
And that is all to the good since they are mostly mechanistic
power-tripers hell-bent on gaining power over nature, and their insane
fantasy of a world of free energy would result in ecological disaster if
they ever succeeeded in discovering what they seek. Free energy would
only make it easier and cheaper for mechanistic humans to wage their
eternal war against the earth, freed of the constraints imposed by energy

Notice how they all dropped the appellation "God particle" the

- Here are some (not all) of the elements that comprise the roadmap of
how conventional science got stuck where it is now. It's like a man who
has plucked out his own eyes and complains he can't see. [A woman would
not do that!]
- 1. The maturation of Capitalism into Imperialism that was completed
around the beginning of the 20th century, also signaled the invasion,
occupation and domination of the lands of Science by forces of Capital.
An occupation regime was set up and since that time, Science is ruled by
- Since that time and to this day, most people, including scientists,
are unable to tell the difference between Science and technology. This is
at the root of many problems.
- 2. One of the early battles embodying that takeover was that between
Edison and Tesla. All of the folklore (and mystification) existing today
that revolve around Tesla's legacy is due to Edison's war against
Science, carried out for Capital in the name of profits.
- Here's a short summary of that:
- 3. The great revolution of the sixties and seventies, due to both its
anti-imperialist anti-capitalist character AND to the element of higher
Consciousness that it focused on and cultivated, was able to reunite
Science and philosophy temporarily, opening up the possibility that
Science might get out of the dead end it had entered.
- The branch of science known as "Visionary Physics" was
created by scientists whose eyes were opened again by the revolutionary
process taking place around them and within them. Two works, in
particular, produced within that context, held the possibility of a
change in course so that science could become Science again.
- One was the book titled "The Tao of Physics", by physicist
- Among other things in his book, Capra manages to point out the
ridiculousness of firing particles through bigger and bigger accelerators
at higher and higher speeds in the hope that these will reveal something
supposedly profound about the structure of the Universe. The only thing
that comes out of those "experiments" is what early computer
engineers used to say about programming: "G.I.G.O. - it means
Garbage In, Garbage Out". In other words, what you get out of those
"experiments" is what you put into them: particle collisions at
ever higher speeds and energies, and no way to make sense of them. If you
don't cultivate your ability to make sense, you can not make sense out of
any of those experiments, nor devise meaningful experiments with
relevance to the questions.
- This profound guideline was suppressed.
- Another significant item of the period was the book titled
"Space, Time and Beyond", written by Bob (Robert) Toben with
physicists Fred Alan Wolf and Jack Scarfatti:
- This book is the definitive source for comprehending quantum theory,
tangible reality and Consciousness. It is a presentation - from the point
of view of hard physics - of the idea that reality consists of
Consciousness congealed into space-time. It is the "Mother of
all..." books and movies on the connection between quantum reality
- The mere existence of this book could have helped a restoration of
Science take place. But its point of view was suppressed and ignored. In
the same way that healthy sexuality when suppressed becomes transformed
into degenerate forms like sadism (a "secondary drive"),
Visionary Physics became suppressed, distorted, misunderstood, and now
thrives in a perverted form that feeds billion-dollar industries of new
age dogmatism founded on mystification, ignorance and
- 4. The previous anti-Imperialist revolutionary period of the nineteen
twenties and thirties was also a historical juncture that created the
possibility of a restoration of science to its formerly correct
orientation. It produced the branch of science known as Orgonomy,
primarily through the work of Wilhelm Reich.
- Reich's work held, and still holds, the possibility of providing the
glue that can bind together currently existing scientific knowledge into
a comprehensive "Theory of Everything". Even though that term
is often the target of nervous humour, it is a noble and valid scientific
effort to unite what we know from the Theory of Relativity, Quantum
Theory, knowledge of Gravity, particle physics, electromagnetism, atomic
and nuclear theory AND the Life sciences, into one meaningful
- The effort so far within conventional science is to hack at it,
nobly, but still with blinders on - you can see a summary of where all
this is today, here:
- If you read even only the introduction of the above article you'll
see that Life itself, and Life's very curious properties, exemplified by
the knowledge that the very fact of Life's existence is a violation of
the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, are excluded from the parameters that
scientists are exploring in order to put together a valid Theory of
- Nevertheless, the quest for a valid Theory of Everything is a good
one, and it would be going in the right direction if it included Orgonomy
as one of its perceptual or theoretical instruments that could help
congeal it all into a meaningful Theory.
- But Orgonomy is also suppressed and ignored, its findings and even
its name are ridiculed by conventional scientists who have never made
time to examine any of the postulates put forth by Reich, which are based
on observations and easy to reproduce experiments.
- At least Albert Einstein had the decency to try Orgonomy for a bit
and tried to figure it out with Reich. But curious circumstances (and
perhaps the earth-shattering fear of a dissolving dogmatic Cosmology)
eventually diverted him from it.
- In my view Orgonomy is still the only way to go in order to help
conventional science get unstuck. Orgonomy can provide tools for the
"big picture", ie, it can provide help to move forward in the
efforts for a unified Theory of Everything, but it can also help the
efforts currently being conducted within more narrow, specialized
branches of science (such as those listed in Mitchel's letter at the
top), to find a context within which what the researchers are doing can
