In the mid 1930s Dr. Reich began noticing an energetic connection that is shared by all living beings and had the clarity of mind to not dismiss the observation as unimportant. Dr. Reich called this energy “orgone” and worked for decades demonstrating its laws and studying its various manifestations.
His work encompassed 40 years within six countries, but in the end he suffered the indignity of seeing his life’s work banned in America and tons of his books and journals burned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration per bureaucratic decree. It was a brazen act of censorship that is overlooked today within the texts of history.
Prior to his orgonomic research, Dr. Reich had earned an international reputation as a scientist of integrity. Once, after he had demonstrated orgone energy to Albert Einstein, the famous physicist exclaimed that “this would be a bombshell to physics”.
