I am only just beginning. I made my first small batch of TBs, making several novice moves, apparently.
I am finding much disparity in the advice on device construction, even among the archived orgonite materials by the respected orgonite “pioneers.” It would be great to know I am not wasting my time, money, and efforts by making certain design choices. I am not “energy sensitive,” and I find the advice to just “assume” you are making a difference, or to just “watch the weather” to be a bit vague, in confirming that one’s efforts at this are indeed effective.
I utilized chopped up aluminum soda/beer cans. I unrolled cans and ran them through the paper shredder. This was after seeing an affirmative post somewhere by Don, after someone questioned if this was acceptable metal source. However, reading other info on appropriate source materials, it is said that curved metal pieces are the best. And of course, the size of the metal pieces produced by chopping up cans this way cannot be small enough to achieve the 1:1 metal/resin ratio that is said is needed.
While on one hand, Don insisted on keeping the tactical dispensing of orgonite simple, and claimed it was “forgiving” in that one needn’t be precise in the materials (such as his responses in this thread: The Advice Needed ), it really does seem to need precision:
Swarf (though he suggested also tiny BBs were okay) is really the only thing that will render the 1:1 ratio. Larger material, such as cut up can pieces, will result in too much resin. And specifically curved metal is also seemingly needed.
Another account of Don and Carol was about how they were at someone’s house, helping him cut up copper pot scrubbers. Apparently, Carol got a message from spirit that they needed to cut up the pieces more finely, to make it effective. This necessity for a precise metal size seems counter to his replies in the above linked thread, that virtually any swept up metal junk is okay.
I used tumbled rose quartz bead chips, from the craft store. Don says that any type of quartz is acceptable in devices (amethyst, rose quartz, citrine); and that, in an HHG, you can sprinkle any additional crystal pieces you feel like in a (personal) HHG. Laozu’s articles say putting crystals close together can cause negative energy. And of course, Laozu disagrees generally with the use of coils in devices, unless you are indeed energy-sensitive and know what you are doing. As well, I read another established leader in this movement stating that only clear quartz was really acceptable as the primary crystal.
And then there is the question of how much is needed to neutralize a target.
Don’s instructions say one TB for a small tower, and perhaps two or three TBs for a larger one, and one HHG for three towers that are close together; but I also found advice on the whale orgone pages here: Is there an honorable place in the work for blind imitation? by Don Croft that say that three triangulated HHGs are needed to fully neutralize a large tower.
I wonder if other factors are at play, if supposedly “sensitive” people have arrived at different views on acceptable practices. As much as we would want results to be replicable and scientific, do one’s intentions and personal energies have something to do with the the effects of various materials used?
I will be proceeding, regardless, of course. …I know these things have been probably talked to death, in the earlier years of this. Prolific gifters have seemingly each created their own treatises, manuals, and websites about the methods they use; …but it would be great to get some experienced opinions of those who are still into this.
