"Got an Orgone Accumulator"

Discussion at the Lucerne conference, August 1934: Erwin Stengel, Grete Bibring, Rudolph Lowenstein, and Wilhelm Reich

It was in Norway, Dr. Reich developed a new theory: he came to believe that orgasm carried an actual energy, which he termed orgone, that was expressed not only by the orgasm response but was, in fact, the energy of life itself. This energy, in his view, permeated nature and the cosmos, expressing itself in atmospheric phenomenon like the aurora borealis.
