A PRELIMINARY STUDY OF THE REICH ORGONE ACCUMULATOR EFFECTS ON HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY
The orgone accumulator (ORAC) is a device, conceived by the Austrian scientist Wilhelm Reich in the 1940s, which he claimed would concentrate a vital energy from the atmosphere. Reich ascertained the ORAC to be useful in medical therapies of several diseases, even though the energy concentrated inside the accumulator could not be classified under any of the traditional known energies of the time. In order to better understand ORAC’s effects on healthy people, 20 persons were considered for this study. They were treated inside the device for 45 minutes. Body temperature and skin resistance on Electro Permeable Points (EPP) were measured, before and after ORAC exposure, by a mercury thermometer, and by a Bio-Feedback (BFB) instrument (according to the Ryodoraku technique), respectively. Our results showed a significant statistical difference of the pre- and post-ORAC exposure body temperature of 0.242 °C (p=0,006), evaluated by the Student T-test at a significance level of 0.05. Ryodoraku measurement variations were more complex to evaluate. Nevertheless these latter results suggest the ORAC might have some effects on human health due to a parasympathetic nervous system activation which cannot be considered only a result of a placebo effect.
