    NEWEST Model LM4

    Click these images for a larger picture.

    Experimental Life Energy Field Meter

    Model LM4, Fully Portable and Battery Powered.
    Comes with:
    Built-In Small Plate Electrode (blue square in photos)
    External Glass Electrode
    Instruction Manual.

    Two YouTube Demo Clips are given below.

    The New Portable LM4 Model of Life Energy Meter has many advantages over the older LM3 models. Firstly it is fully portable and battery powered. You can hold it in one or two hands, and scan objects or people with it, without the interference of power-supply wires. It can also be used on a desk or bench-top, and has the shape and feeling of a typical electronics multi-meter. A heavy-duty rubber cushion protects the units against bumps.

    The new LM4 will work with all prior Electrodes. A small plate electrode is built into the unit (the blue square in the photos), and when laid flat on its back, one can measure the strength of the hand, or any other object which is brought close to that plate, or set upon it -- as with liquid samples. It also comes with an external glass tube electrod, and works well with the optional Large Plate Electrode and lab-ware supplies, which can be purchased separately as shown below.

    The LM4 unit can be used in the field or on a desktop, or within a laboratory, for various purposes. The LM4 has the same external probe inputs and selector switches as prior models, and also the same external analog data output port. The LM4 runs off 4 AA batteries which provide about 50 hours of continuous use.

    Price: $379.95


    Have you ever wondered what it is about living things that distinguishes them from non-living matter? Evidence from many sources today demonstrates that living creatures emanate an energy field or life-force; in fact, all matter and substance, whether living or not, contains some quantity of this force, which is not electromagnetic in nature, and cannot be easily detected by conventional methods. In the 1940s, the scientist Wilhelm Reich developed an orgone (life-energy) field meter, using high-voltage induction coils to excite a large detector plate, and was able to show the existence and quantity of life-energy charge in people, plants and various objects. Our new Experimental Life-Energy Field Meter uses a similar principle, but with modern solid-state circuitry and much lower voltages which eliminate the need for bulky induction coils as used in Reich's original apparatus.

    The LM4 Experimental Life Energy Field Meter detects energy fields which influence the internal blue-square Small Plate Electrode sensor, or which enter through a special Glass Tube Electrode, or other electrodes plugged in at the rear of the instrument. By moving people or objects towards or away from the various electrodes (ie, your hand), one can get a sense for the extent and strength of their energy fields. By setting the meter in a fixed location, and setting people or objects near to it at a set distance, one can develop a quantitative sense for the relative strength of the energy field, or note variations in the readings over time. Comparisons between one person or object, and another, are also possible.

    The instrument has five different scales of sensitivity (x1, x10, x100, x1K, x2K) through a range selector switch, with both fine and coarse controls for calibrating the meter to zero prior to making readings. The instrument can easily pick up human energy fields, from the hand, torso, head and other body parts, at distances of up to several feet using the internal blue-square electrode, or the external Glass Tube Electrode. Detections at up to one or two meters or yards is possible with the optional Large Plate Electrode accessory (not included), which can also be used to measure the field strength of the body or of larger objects. Liquid samples and smaller objects such as fruits, foodstuffs and soil samples, may also be measured for their life-energy charge or field strength by placing them directly upon the internal blue square Small Plate Electrode, or by use of appropriate containers for liquids (see the Accessory items, below). At the most sensitive scales, the meter will pick up background charge of the atmosphere, the fluctuations in which can be output to a data recording devices through a provided output jack.

    Here are two Instructional YouTube clips for the Life Energy Meter.

    2. The Experimental Life Energy Meter:
    History, Operational Procedures and Suggested Experiments

    by James DeMeo, PhD
    Orgone Biophysical Research Lab (OBRL)

    The Experimental Life-Energy Field Meter meter works along entirely new principles quite different from any other measuring device currently on the market. Is entirely different from ordinary "EM-field" meters. It is not responsive to electromagnetic fields, nor to static magnetic or electrostatic fields. An electrostatically-charged plastic comb or wand, for example, will show no reactions at the Life Energy Field Meter, other than what would occur from the same plastic comb or wand without the electrostatic charge. This is quite different from the usual voltmeter, which reacts strongly to electrostatic fields, but only weakly and temporarily to your hand. Likewise, no greater readings will be developed between an ordinary piece of metal, or the same piece of metal strongly magnetized. The Life Energy Field Meter responds only to the presence of living organisms, and also more weakly to liquid water, and to moisture-bearing and metal-containing materials which as Reich demonstrated, are strong absorbers and reflectors of atmospheric orgone energy. The Life Energy Field Meter will, for example, respond strongly to the field from a nearby orgone energy blanket, or orgone accumulator, with a general indication of the relative strength of charge -- however, much research is needed before we can be too declarative, beyond these general statements. Consequently we consider it an experimental device. Please review the experimental applications as summarized in the above two PDF-download publications.

    This is a first-generation research instrument, for the life-energy enthusiast, scientific experimenter or clinician interested in bio-field phenomenon. Each meter is hand-made by our associate scientist-engineer in Canada, Mr. Dave Marett of Heliognosis, who firstly developed this smaller solid-state replication of the original larger induction-powered Orgone Energy Field Meter of Wilhelm Reich. They are housed in plastic case with rubber protector, as pictured, similar to a standard multi-meter.

    Warranty: All our meters are warranted against defects of materials and workmanship, excluding abuse or misuse or breakage of parts by the purchaser, for a period of one year from the date of purchase. We will either repair or replace the meter with one of equal quality. This meter is not for medical diagnosis. If you have a health problem, consult your health-care practitioner. This is an experimental device. Click here for our full Warranty and Returns Policy.

    Be Gentle with your LEM! The rubber case will absorb shocks, but may not be sufficient to prevent breakage if it is dropped from any height. Likewise, the Glass Tube Electrode is breakable if dropped or forced! Insert any external electrodes into the input jacks with gentle care. Don't force anything! You are responsible for breakage due to mis-handling or neglect. Each meter is individually hand-constructed, tested and quality-controlled. They are not "mass produced". Handle it carefully and it will give you many years of useful operation.

    Background and Description:

    In 1947, Wilhelm Reich, MD published The Cancer Biopathy, detailing his research in visualizing and applying orgone energy. In this work, he described a device which he called the Orgone Energy Field Meter, which responded to living things as they were brought close to the device. The Life Energy Field Meter, developed by an electronics engineer with decades of experience in life-energy research, is based on the same principle as Reich's device and has been made into a small table-top unit.

    This device is useful for many experimental applications in the scientific and health-research fields because of its sensitivity and dynamic range. Two scales are provided, one for weaker life fields and one for stronger fields. The x1 range is intended for measuring relative comparisons of living, organic and inorganic samples from humans and animals to plants and solutions. The user can then zoom in to make accurate measurements using the x10 and x100 ranges. The zero point is continuously adjustable to allow both relative percent and +/- readings, making comparisons between different samples. The x1K range allows for the detection of very weak or distant fields with stability. The x1k and 2K ranges are intended for monitoring the aethereal fluctuations in the surrounding space of the sensor.

    The meter is provided with a Glass Tube sensor which is inserted into the left-hand probe receptical on the "nose" of the unit. (The right-hand receptical on the LM4 is not used with the provided electrodes, only for the special liquid-measurement probe, which currently is under development.) Make sure the selector switch is set correctly. A 2 sq inch blue-square Small Plate Electrode is mounted inside the meter on the top front, and is for objects and sample measurements. A 2 sq foot Large Plate Electrode is also available as an optional accessory, for measuring larger objects or the entire human body, or for extending the distance by which detection can be made. Objects may be placed directly on the Large or Small Plates for comparison measurements. Human fields will be detected up to 2 ft using the provided Glass Tube or internal blue-square Small Plate Electrodes, and up to 6 ft using the Large Plate accessory. A selector switch on the nose of the unit should be placed in the "Small" position for the provided external Glass Tube Electrode, or to the "Large" position for the optional external Large Plate electrode. The middle position of the selector switch is for future hybrid electrodes under development. Experimenters may construct their own unique electrode configurations using a standard banana plug adapter. Please note that sensitivity of the device is proportional to plate area. Plate areas substantially different from those which we offer, and which use too large a wire diameter, may fall out of the useful range of the device.

    There are no standards for the measurement of life-energy fields, and so the device is calibrated in percent units of full scale. A few of the possible experimental applications of this unique device are:

    * basic demonstration of animal and plant life-energy fields
    * measurement of the general overall vitality of an individual
    * analysis of food product for relative energetic content
    * study of plants and prediction of nutrient requirements
    * comparison of energy field strengths of liquid solutions
    * scientific research into life-processes
    * testing of alternate energy devices for unconventional energy fields
    * experimentation with orgone accumulators and blankets

    The Life Energy Field Meter contains a very weak high-frequency low-voltage source (~20mHz at ~25 V and 1 microamp), which replaces the older induction coils as used by Reich in his original design. By Reich's theory, the energy field of the person or object being measured is excited and thereby made sensible by the internal electronics of the meter. By classical descriptions, the probe emits a weak "displacement current" field into the surrounding space. The more that this energy field is absorbed (vis: the "permittivity" of the object, by classical terms), the higher is the reading on the meter. Reich discovered that this absorption is stronger in living things than in non-living things, and stronger still in more vitally-alive people. Water and metal also yield readings on the LEM, and this may also be an expression of the free (not chemically-bound) life-energy charge in the substance. Many tests have revealed that his meter is not sensitive to electromagnetic, magnetic, nuclear or electrostatic fields.

    For Portable Use, In the Field

    The new LM4 Experimental Life Energy Meter can be used at remote locations. The included 4 AA Batteries will provide about 50 hours of continuous use, before they need replacement.

    Note to Health Care Practitioners:

    The Experimental Life Energy Field Meter is not sufficiently developed to be used with confidence for any kind of diagnostic purposes. We do not yet know its capacities or limitations. We have been asked, for example, if the meter can be used in place of subjective "muscle testing", to show more objective and measurable changes in human energy field strength before and after a person has been given a specific remedy, or exposed to a toxin. Or, we are asked if the meter will measure the difference in field strength of the liver area versus the kidney, etc. Or, if the meter will measure the difference in charge at different acupuncture points. The short answer is: We do not know. While we have some preliminary indications the meter may ultimately be utilized for all of these purposes, at present, we cannot make any such claims. What is needed is for clinicians with an interest in the subject to test out the meter, and publish their results in scientific journals, after which a knowledge base can be built up. At this time, however, our emphasis is upon the word "experimental".
