Orgone, Wilhelm Reich and the Peaceful Ape
Starting in 1977, as part of his graduate research at the University of Kansas, DeMeo undertook replication studies of Reich's biophysical research -- specifically, a systematic evaluation of the Reich cloudbuster which yielded positive results.
The acceptance of DeMeo's work by the KU faculty constituted the first time any aspect of Reich's controversial biophysical research had been validated by peer-review within a mainstream academic institution. Through the organizational structure of OBRL, and with the cooperative assistance and support of many other individuals and groups dedicated to Reich's works, DeMeo has since directed field applications of the cloudbuster apparatus, successfully ending droughts across the USA and overseas as well, with applications towards reducing the energetic stagnation characteristic of wetter regions suffering from chronic air pollution and forest-death.
A number of Desert Greening expeditions have also been organized and directed by DeMeo within the arid zones of the Southwestern USA, and into the dry regions of Namibia and Israel, producing a dramatic verification of Reich's earlier findings on the ability of the cloudbuster to bring rains under even extremely dry conditions. With the support of local governments, a five-year desert-greening experiment was also undertaken in the 1990s, in the East African Sahel region adjacent to the hyperarid Sahara Desert. All of these projects have produced significantly positive results with sometimes-dramatic increases in rainfall, ending dry episodes of sometimes decades duration, filling reservoirs and greening parched landscapes. This work constitutes a major breakthrough in combating the intractable problems of drought and desert-spreading, with their attendant famine and social-economic upheavals, and is a major focus of research activity at OBRL.
In the early 1980s, DeMeo embarked upon what was then, and still remains, the most comprehensive and systematic global cross-cultural study of human behavior yet undertaken, a 10-year research effort which focused upon the geographical parameters of human behavior, as expressed in archaeology, history, and cross-cultural ethnography. DeMeo's numerous behavior maps of various social institutions and eventual discovery of the social/environmental region of Saharasia as the original historical source region of patriarchal authoritarian societies, solved the riddle of what Reich called the origins of armoring. Saharasia, now in a comprehensive book, demonstrates the origins of human violence in traumatic and sex-repressive social institutions during the historically-unprecedented epoch of drought, desertification, famine and mass-migrations which gripped the Old World after c.4000 BCE.
This work constitutes a precise and systematic cross-cultural validation of Wilhelm Reich's sex-economic hypothesis on the origins of human neurosis and irrationalism, and proof of the global validity of his Mass Psychology of Fascism. New research continues into this important subject area, confronting popular claims on the "genetic" or "innate" nature of human violence, with attempts to bring the findings contained in Saharasia to a wider public.
Experimental investigation into orgone energy functions in nature continues at OBRL, verifying many of Reich's original findings on the orgone accumulator, with efforts underway towards quantitative evaluations of the elusive properties of living water ("activated" or "structured" water). DeMeo's work along this track has uncovered measurable changes in water evaporation and surface tension due to orgone-charging, as well as plant growth-enhancement effects. Through OBRL and the Natural Energy Works publication and distribution company, DeMeo's Orgone Accumulator Handbook, Saharasia and the OBRL Pulse of the Planet research journal have been distributed world-wide, in English and other languages. Research undertaken by DeMeo and associates of OBRL constitutes a major support for Reich's earlier findings, with important extensions and bridges built between Reich's orgonomy and a few of the more open and genuine elements of modern science.
The Orgone Biophysical Research Lab, Greensprings Center near Ashland, Oregon, USA
In 1995, the Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory relocated to a pristine, energetically-vital forested environment in rural southwestern Oregon, and the Greensprings Center was born. A new laboratory building was constructed, which doubles as a seminar facility, and an orgone-energy darkroom was added in 1998. New research was initiated, and laboratory-oriented educational seminars, taught by teams of top-notch professionals with decades of experience, have been offered each summer on central aspects of orgonomy.
These include weekend seminars on subjects such as "Bions, Biogenesis and the Reich Blood Test", on "The Orgone Energy Accumulator", and a "Guided Independent Study Program" or "Laboratory Seminar on General Orgonomy", for the more serious individual. Special seminars on Saharasia and Global Weather are also offered periodically, as are other special topics. Professionals and students, young and old and from around the world, meet each summer at the OBRL Greensprings Center to get a first-hand experience.
From the Laboratory Director:
"Where psychiatry and psychoanalysis have failed to resolve the dilemma of destructive human aggression, Reich's sex-economy succeeded. Where mechanistic biochemistry failed to elucidate the riddle of the origins of life, or of the cancer cell, Reich's bion experiments, and discovery of a specific life energy, has brought forth their solutions. While neither mechanistic science nor mystical philosophies have shed any light on the longstanding problems of sadism and warfare, or on the world-wide human fear and hatred of nature, Reich's work pinpoints their origins in specific traumatic, sex-negative social institutions which damage the young, and from which sadistic urges develop. Indeed, his sex-economic work has withstood the most rigorous cross-cultural testing, and explains the genesis of destructive human aggression and violence better and more completely than any other theory. Moreover, his work demonstrates the preventable nature of such violence, exposing its roots in our awful treatments of babies, children, and adolescents. My own geographical research extended his findings to show exactly when and where violent, patristic human societies first appeared on Earth, the exact conditions under which they arose, the means by which they spread, and from which their modern-day political expressions developed. Reich's complementary discovery of a specific life energy, the orgone, is likewise founded upon sound, verifiable experiments. Even his orgone accumulator, dismissed by know-nothings as a 'quack' appliance, turns out to be a potent therapeutic device, capable of beneficially stimulating the physiology of plants, animals, and people. The orgone, as a directly observable and measurable atmospheric energy, also plays a fundamental role in our weather, as proven by many experiments with the cloudbusting instrument, a device which has already been used to break many droughts, and bring rains to deserts. For many years I have researched and tested Reich's various discoveries, and found them to be sound, and worthy of our most serious considerations. He has laid the foundations for an entirely new functional science and world view, which has already borne significant and badly-needed fruits."

The Human Species is By Nature Loving, Cooperative and Peaceful.
There is a Real Early Peaceful Period in the Archaeological Record.
The Concept of a "Naked Violent Ape" or "Violent Genes" is a Modern Fantasy-Falsehood.
Early Climate Change Towards Saharasian Deserts at c.4000 BCE led to the First Widespread Appearance of Violent Human Societies, who have
Favorably Perpetuated Themselves over the Centuries by Conquest of more Peaceful Societies.
Favorably Perpetuated Themselves over the Centuries by Conquest of more Peaceful Societies.
Those are the findings from James DeMeo's Saharasia!
No great knowledge of maths or scientific methods is required to follow the logic and research to their conclusions, though the book is clearly written for scholars. An early period of generally peaceful social conditions is documented in prehistory, but with a major shift towards patriarchal-authoritarian and decidedly violent social conditions across the Saharasian region after a major climate-shift from wet grassland-forest conditions towards harsh desert conditions at c.5000-4000 BC.
Major epochs of cultural diffusion are also presented on maps, showing how violent patriarchal authoritarian, sex-repressive and child-abusive behaviors were carried outward from their Saharasian origins to nearly every corner of the globe. It presents previously-unknown geographical patterns in dozens of different human behaviors, beliefs and social institutions representative of human violence and warlike aggression, such as slavery, castes, genital mutilations and a low women's status.
The findings have been praised by many, published in scientific journals and magazines, cited repeatedly, but in largest measure have been willfully censored out of the discussion by most within the editorial power-circles of modern academics and mainstream journalism, which continues to embrace the flawed and disproven theories of "violent genes" or other "original sin" concepts. None of those theories, nor anything like them, can stand in the face of the new evidence presented in Prof. DeMeo's Saharasia.
