and Norman had his orgone box and was a devotee of Wilhelm Reich.
And while there'll be no stripping off allowed in the orgone box, the must have debated the possibility of, erm, "Lewd behaviour?" asks Honor, brightly.
(21) After moving to the United States in 1939, Reich started building boxes called "orgone accumulators" that he believed could capture sexual energy from the environment.
He was an early follower of Freud, a radical Marxist, a pioneering sexologist, a believer in UFOs, and the discoverer of "orgone energy," the life force that he insisted united the earth to the cosmos, humans to nature, the psyche to the body, and individuals together to form a healthy society.
Among his other achievementspopularizing the term "sexual revolution"; fascinating Norman Mailer, Saul Bellow, and Allen Ginsberg; dying in prison after being busted by the FDA for selling large wooden boxes in which people would sit to gather up their "orgone energy"the radical sex theorist Wilhelm Reich also managed to inspire at least two pop songs, as Kim Cooper pointed out in a talk, in May, at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Patti Smith's "Birdland" and Kate Bush's "Cloudbusting." For those who want to know more about Reich than can be conveyed in a music video starring Donald Sutherland, Christopher Turner surveys the man's bizarre but consequential career in Adventures in the Orgasmatron: How the Sexual Revolution Came to America (FSG, June).
sellers of orgone tanks and relaxing machines, brokers of exquisite dreams and memories tested on the sensitized cells of junk sickness and bartered for raw materials of the will, doctors skilled in the treatment of the black dust of ruined coties, gathering virulence in the white blood of eyeless worms feeling slowly to the surface and the human host, maladies of the ocean floor and the stratosphere, maladies of the laboratory and the atomic war ...
He also focuses on Reich's major reassessment of Freudian doctrines of the libido into an ideology of orgone energy and its biologically-based potential for enhancing bodily and emotional health.
The fact is - every standing tower in the world, pretty much, can be seen by energy sensitive and psychics to give off very dense, destructive dead Orgone radiation - the energy of death and decay.
Meanwhile soothsayers, astrologers and other opponents of the wi-fi system have resorted to an alternative technology - known as "orgone" - to combat the alleged negative effects of the high-tech system.
Made largely from thick clear acrylic resin encasing imitation roses, the armchair, titled ''Miss Blanche,'' fetched 145,250 pounds (about $248,400), which was surpassed in price only by Australian Marc Newson's ''Orgone Stretch Lounge.''
We have William Reich, discoverer of orgone energy; a woman tripping on "Electric Ladyland"; a robot chicken; a coma dream about The Clash; sex, sex and sex; a flock of books falling from the sky; and the riveting tale of the Plainville Downtown Business Association's bake sale (my favorite).
I'm not surprised that Irene Terry was cautious about applying this technique that falls in the same category as homeopathy, chiropractic, Orgone therapy, and other so-called "alternative" therapies that have failed the test of good scientific research.
