About the Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory,
and the Greensprings Center


The Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory, Inc., is a non-profit science research and educational foundation, established in 1978 by James DeMeo, Director of Research since that date. Over the years, the Lab has supported various research projects, and educational lectures and workshops in both the USA and overseas, focused upon the basic sex-economic and orgone biophysical discoveries of the late Dr. Wilhelm Reich. Work sponsored by the Lab has included cross-cultural social research, experimental investigation of the biophysical effects of the orgone energy accumulator, methods for objectification of the biological and atmospheric orgone energy, and field-research and applications of the Reich cloudbuster under both drought and desert conditions. The Lab also publishes a research journal, Pulse of the Planet, and other Special Reports and books. The Lab is an independent organization, but enjoys an informal, cooperative, and productive working relationship with other responsible individuals and organizations.

The Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory,
dedicated to research, investigation, development
and applications of the Sex-Economic and
Orgone Biophysical discoveries of the late
natural scientist, Wilhelm Reich, M.D.

The OBRL Greensprings Center, in forested rural Oregon. The structure incorporates a passive-solar heating design.
AstroHaven Astronomical Observatory Dome is perched on the roof, holding a large-aperture 16" Meade telescope.

In 1995, the Lab was relocated to a location in southern Oregon, in the mountains above the picturesque town of Ashland which is known around the world for its natural beauty and Shakespeare Theatre festivals. Following an extensive land search, a suitable 16 acre site was located which met or exceeded all of our necessary requirements for an exceptional research and educational facility.

Surrounded by natural beauty...

The Greensprings Center is located at 4200 feet elevation, in the crisp, fresh air of pine-fir-cedar old growth forests of the Greensprings region, east of Ashland on the southern slopes of Mount Chinquapin, close to where the Cascades meet the Siskiyou Mountains. Climatically, all four seasons are experienced, but summer is dry and mild, while winter passes with up to four feet of snow. In addition to being close to Ashland and the scenic Pacific Coast, the Greensprings Center is close to the historical Applegate branch of the Oregon Trail, the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail, and to various other National Forests, parks, scenic areas, historical markers, and Indian reservations. Crater Lake, the deepest lake in North America (with the bluest water in the world), is only a short distance to the north, as is the spectacular Mt. McLoughlin, while Mt. Shasta is just to the south.

Energetically clean and alive...!

The energetic feeling at the Greensprings Center is delightful, crisp, sparkling and alive, and this was the primary attraction to this particular location. The Center is well above the stagnant atmospheric dor-layer which often afflicts the West Coast, and many hundreds of miles distant from any nuclear reactors or waste dumps, with no other significant sources of atomic or electromagnetic oranur in the vicinity. The area is known for its pristine natural forests, wild rivers and streams (such as the untamed Rogue River, with its famous white-water rafting and marvelous fishing), and breath-giving beauty.

These natural qualities and recreational aspects insure that visitors and students will always have interesting things to do and see when they come to the new Greensprings Center. There are numerous hiking trails through old-growth forests and sunny meadows, with recreational lakes, downhill and cross-country ski areas, and mountain-top vistas to enjoy, as well as several excellent inns, campgrounds and guest ranches within a short distance of the Center. The area is easily accessible via major airports in nearby Medford and Klamath Falls, Oregon, or by a half-day drive from Portland or San Francisco.

The natural and alive quality of the life energy at this location has allowed the productive development of environmental research in the laboratory, which focuses upon orgone energy functions in nature. A larger orgone accumulator darkroom has also been constructed, similar to what existed at Reich's lab at Orgonon , in rural Maine. We can already report the wonderfully warm and penetrating life-energetic charge which has developed in orgone accumulators now on-site.

Research is Underway...

Shortly after moving to Greensprings in early 1995 and occupying an existing residential home, construction was started on the larger laboratory and classroom building. A two-story lab/seminar structure was completed in 1996, providing over 2,000 square feet of working space which now hosts microscopy and bion research, orgone accumulator research, water research, meteorological analysis, an extensive research library, bookstore, office and classroom/seminar area. In 2002, a third-floor loft was converted into temporary student quarters, and a rooftop observatory was added. The building has an array of large, south-facing glass windows for passive solar heating and generous natural illumination, with high ceilings for a light, airy feeling. An array of solar photovoltaics panels were added most recently, providing roughly 3/4ths of the electrical needs of the facility, in keeping with our commitment to environmental preservation and "walking lightly on the land". In 1999, an Orgone Energy Darkroom was added as well, for research into high-charge orgone environments. Outbuildings on the property provide for a fully-functioning machine shop, where construction of apparatus proceeds without difficulty.

A place for study and investigation...

The Greensprings Center provides an excellent energetic environment for laboratory replication of some of Reich's more demanding orgone (life) energy experiments. New methods for objectification and measurement of the life energy are underway and a section of the laboratory is now dedicated to the constant recording of the Orgone Accumulator Thermal Anomaly (To-T) with another area for recording meteorological monitoring equipment. Monitoring of atmospheric electrical charge using the Burr millivoltmeter method, and other environmental and cosmological variables are also under investigation. Water analysis research is underway, to evaluate the working hypothesis that "structured" or "activated" water is synonymous to water with a high charge of orgone energy.

The summertime Greensprings Seminars have been offered most summers since 1986, educating hundreds of students in topics ranging from Reich's life and work, the sex-economic basis of global violence and human behavior, bions and the Reich blood test, the orgone energy accumulator, and more (see the educational events section for our current and forthcoming offerings).

About the Laboratory Director

James DeMeo, PhD, formally studied the Earth, Atmospheric, and Environmental Sciences at Florida International University and the University of Kansas, where he earned his PhD in 1986. At KU, he openly undertook the first graduate-level natural scientific research specifically focused upon Wilhelm Reich's controversial discoveries, subjecting those ideas to rigorous testing, with positive verification of the original findings. DeMeo subsequently undertook drought-related field research in the arid American Southwest, Egypt, Israel, sub-Saharan Eritrea, and Namibia, Africa. His work on the Saharasia question constituted the most ambitious global cross-cultural research study to date, on the subjects of human behavior, family and sexual life around the world. His published works include dozens of articles and compendiums, and several books, including:
* The Dynamic Ether of Cosmic Space: Correcting a Major Error in Modern Science,
* Saharasia: The 4000 BC Origins of Child Abuse, Sex-Repression, Warfare and Social Violence, In the Deserts of the Old World.
* The Orgone Accumulator Handbook: Wilhelm Reich's Life-Energy Science and Healing Tools for the 21st Century, with Construction Plans.
* Marx Engels Lenin Trotsky: Genocide Quotes. The Hidden History of Communism's Founding Tyrants, in their Own Words.
* In Defense of Wilhelm Reich: Opposing the 80-Years War of Mainstream Defamatory Slander Against One of the 20th Century's Most Brilliant Physicians and Natural Scientists.

Dr. DeMeo is also editor of On Wilhelm Reich and Orgonomy, Heretics' Notebook, the science series Pulse of the Planet, and co-editor for the German-language compendium Nach Reich: Neue Forschung zur Orgonomie. DeMeo served on the faculty of Geography at the University of Kansas, Illinois State University, University of Miami and University of Northern Iowa. His past or current affiliations include membership in the American Meteorological Association, Society for Scientific Exploration, Arid Lands Society, Natural Philosophy Alliance, Sigma Xi, International Society for the Comparative Study of Civilizations, and the AAAS. He is a former Research Affiliate of the American College of Orgonomy. In 1978, he founded the Orgone Biophysical Research Lab (OBRL), where he continues as Director. In 1994 DeMeo's laboratory and institute was moved to a high-altitude facility in the Siskiyou Mountains near to Ashland, Oregon, exhibiting optimal conditions for sensitive orgone energy experiments.
