Whether Dr. DeMento is a paid or an upaid government disinformation agent is up for debate. What is clear is that he has done everything to discredit Orgonomy and Reich himself. I think he´s protecting his percieved turf since he likes to cultivate his image as the “greatest authority on Wilhelm Reich and orgonomy”. He embodies everything that Reich warned against, that orgonomy could become a cultish and irrational dicipline. There is no doubt at all that DeMento is NOT a scientist at all but a petty pseudo-scientist-cult-leader.
…that there has been no advancement, since the death of Reich, in what the “followers of Reich” know, understand, or have to say, concerning the nature of the massfree aether energy which Reich discovered. Reich spoke of man’s burning desire for knowledge, but no such desire is discernible in any way in the passages we quoted from his “followers”…
…in the nearly half century since the death of Wilhelm Reich, there has not been a single scientific advance in orgone physics, a single novel theoretical or experimental insight into the nature of the energy that Reich discovered, or a single novel application of the devices that he built… source: http://www.aetherometry.com/Electronic_ … expose.php
I´ve been reading alot from Paulo and Alexandra Correa´s Aetherometry.com site. They are two physicisits who almost single-handely resurrected the science behind “Orgonomy” (by discarding Orgonomy and Neo-Reichian dogma altogether). Eugene Mallove was their strongest supporter and his brutal murder in 2004 is testament to his integrity and reputability. The Correas are hard scientists, so don´t expect them to validate, necesarilly, what we all do, since strict scientific rigor requires very controlled experiments, and gifting isn´t exactly controlled.
The results of gifting speak for themselves, of course, but that does not mean its comparable to hard physics in terms of scientific rigor, real physics that is, not what is taught in Academia. Someone could argue that us gifters are also doing a disservice to Reich due to our general lack of strict scientific rigor. The great difference between the likes of DeMeo and rational orgonite gifters is that we do not pretend nor claim to be scientists and that we get consistent(and very often dramatic) results. We are just normal people achieving extra-ordinary results with orgonite. Most of us are content with getting the results and not having to scientifically prove that orgonite really works as we claim. Anyone wishing to prove that orgonite works beyond any scientific doubt needs to exercise strict experimental rigor, which I have yet to see in any experiments with orgonite. That said, I don´t think its our “job” to “prove” that orgonite works, but to provide evidence that what we are claiming has merrit. There is a difference between “proof” and “evidence”. All of the evidence of orgonite´s effects, exposed on this this forum for instance have alot of empiric weight. Hopefully some open-minded scientists will be motivated by this body of evidence and design experiments that prove orgonite’s effects beyond any scientific doubt. I think the Correas are the ideal candidates for this.
That said, most academic “science” lacks scientific rigor, much of it is simply BS. Just look into the “science” that supports the global warming scam.
The Correas have been concerned with proving the most basic principles of “orgone energy” or “mass-free ambipolar energy”, and proving its existence. They have proved beyond any scientific doubt that orgone is real and that DOR and OR polarities do exist, for instance. Their experience with Dr. DeMento is very illustrative. you can read the whole exchange they had here:
http://www.aetherometry.com/publications/direct/demeo_mail.pdf its pretty long, but it turns pretty ugly in the end, not surprisingly considering DeMento’s M.O. You get a taste for his two-faced tactics, first gain confidence and trust, then go for the jugular. Here´s a little excerpt:
… Curiously, you (Dr. DeMento) are convinced that, were Aetherometry to become widely known, it would “stimulate
a crisis against Reich’s original orgonomy”. This is not only a very thinly veiled insult but a
falsity as well. Like all disinformation, it contains a grain of truth: that Reich’s orgonomy
would be integrated and superseded. But that is not what you mean -which is, rather, that
the pathological versions of Reichianism now extant will be obliterated. And this is, in fact,
what you fear.
For, we are entirely convinced that what is harming an understanding of Reich’s orgonomy
are the misinterpretations that surround his work, the mysticism and the confusionism that
go hand in hand with precisely the kind of poisonous behaviour and bogus ‘criticism’ that
you have exhibited in your 12 page attack on Aetherometry. Though you pose as defending
Reich’s original Orgonomy, the fact is that what you put forth is only another anorgonomic
version of the same – and when it comes to being defended, Reich is better defended by
Aetherometry than by such bankrupt iterations of Anorgonomy.
Particularly significant and disingenuous in your most recent letter is the cynicism of your
“Unfortunately, even with Eugene Mallove’s support, I doubt if anything defending or even
significantly referencing Reich will get such attention, no matter what theoretical
formulations are offered.”
First, you gloss over that this is not about theory, but about science, which means theory
validated by experimental facts. And these are the same facts that your supposedly
‘constructive’ criticism purposefully glosses over (matters like the leakage-seepage
comparison, the antigravito-kinetoregenerative phenomenon, the identification of a solar-
sourced variable that tends to arrest the spontaneous electroscopic discharge, etc, etc). …[/quote:1ozhwr6f]
its goes on, were the Correas expose the dishonest and outright malicious tactics employed by DeMento against them.
With a little research it becomes crystal clear that Dr. DeMento is a true sociopath, one of those two faced, shameless, compulsive liars and manipulators, kind of like your average NewAge guru [Image Can Not Be Found] Reich must really be rolling in his grave, to have such a low-life as his “official” representative and the leader of modern orgonomy, which should be conisdered totally dead, thanks in great part to DeMento. Its funny how DeMento has viciously attacked the two things that have revived Reich’s findings the most, Orgonite and Aetherometry. It should be considered a compliment to be attacked by DeMento, since he only attacks people of integrity who pose a threat to his position as leader of “Orgonomy” and everthing related to Wilhelm Reich.
