Experimental investigations were undertaken by the author, of the thermal anomaly (To-T) inside the orgone energy accumulator (ORAC), a phenomenon firstly observed by the late Dr. Wilhelm Reich, who invented the ORAC device. This thermal anomaly, by the theory of Reich, is produced from the rarified motional-pulsating orgone energy continuum which is concentrated inside the ORAC, producing a frictional thermal heating of the air. Discussion is given on the experimental proofs standing behind Reich’s theory and claims, drawing attention to similar concepts in the modern sciences. The orgone energy is similar in many respects to the older luminiferous cosmic ether in that it fills all space, but also fulfills the role of an atmospheric-biological life-energy, in that it is pulsatory and excitable, and charges living tissues. In the To-T experiment, air temperature was measured inside the upper part of a 10 cm cubical ORAC, and contrasted to the temperature within a thermally-balanced but non-orgone-accumulating Control enclosure, following the protocols of Reich. Exceptional care was taken in the construction of the apparatus and in control procedures, with instrumentation calibrated down to ~0.002°C. The experiment was undertaken in a well-ventilated but fully dark-shaded outdoor thermal shelter specially constructed for the evaluations. Under the optimal conditions for ORAC functioning (i.e., low humidity, light or no winds, clear skies), a cyclical positive thermal anomaly was systematically detected, with an average of +0.13°C differential in two 10-day experimental runs presented here, with maxima peaking daily around +0.5°C warmer than the Control, and minima at around -0.1°C. The experiments confirmed Reich’s claims of a slight spontaneous heating effect inside the ORAC, which has no known energy source by classical “empty space” determinations.
