History - Beginning in The Middle
Willhelm Reich, M.D. was a student of the famous psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. Reich has become popularized in the new age community in certainly played an important role in the furthering of Orgone studies, a term which he coined.
We can ignore Reich's strange political beliefs and personal interests and focus on what progress he made. Despite being a communist and studying some weird stuff - he is due some credit.
Reich made Orgone Accumulator boxes with a layering of wood and metal. He found the more layers, the stronger the Orgone accumulation inside the boxes. He observed small, bright blue life forms call "bions" in proportional concentration to the strength of the Orgone field.
Reich did not place Orgone Accumulator boxes around high electricty areas; rather he placed them in serene natural environments high in Orgone which the boxes could accumulate.
Orgone boxes are basically an oversized weak piece of Orgonite. Reich made many claims about natural cures when one sits inside an accumulator. He would roll over in his grave at the site of people placing orgone accumulating devices around high electricty wifi routers, smart meters, and so on claiming an "orgonizing" - he avoided these things like the plague when it came to his accumulators!
