(Full paper forthcoming in 2006, see below.)
       Cross-cultural evaluations using the Textor and Murdock data samples of native, subsistence-level cultures, plotted geographically on world maps, allowed identification of regions of high-level patrism, explicitly defined through correlated measures of child-abuse/neglect, male dominance, sex-repression, social-hierarchy, slavery and violence/warfare. This combined cross-cultural/geographical method demonstrated the following: Old World cultures were generally more patristic than those within the New World and Oceania. Within Old World regions, the great desert belt of Saharasia (North Africa, Middle East, Central Asia) held the largest contiguous region of extreme-high patrism on the planet, with a surrounding band of intermediate patrism. Old World regions most distant from Saharasia -- the Arctic fringe, Southern Africa and India, and SE Asia -- were generally characterized by less-violent matrism. Within Oceania and New World cultures, isolated "islands" or sub-regions of patrism existed amid a background of relatively peaceful matristic social conditions. Identified "massacre sites" within pre-Columbian New World archaeology closely match geographical regions of high patristic-violence, suggesting a linkage between relatively recent archaeology and anthropology. Global maps of such data indicate patrism and violence were not uniformly spread around the world, and while a dominant theme in some regions, both were at very low levels in others. A drought-famine-starvation mechanism is suggested for the origins of human armoring and patristic violence within the primary Saharasian desert region, given its history of climatic change from wet to hyperarid conditions at c.4000-3500 BCE. Mass-migrations from land-abandonment thereby spread human patristic violence world-wide, over 6000 years of history.

(Full paper published in NPA Proceedings, above.)
       The ether-drift experiments of Dayton Miller (c.1906-1929) using a highly sensitive Michelson light-beam interferometer, demonstrated systematic positive effects. He argued the ether could be blocked or reflected by dense material surroundings, and the best results were obtained at high-altitude locations. After decades work, he computed the axis of the Earth's net motion of ether-drift, but not the direction along that axis, stating the final determination required integration with other cosmological evidence. Miller finally settled upon a generally passive but "Earth-entrained" ether through which the Earth pushed, but he did not address the major contradiction contained within this idea, that an ether would act as a braking force against all cosmic motion over time. A dynamic ether, acting as cosmic "prime mover" was the alternative solution, but requires the ether to have both slight mass and spiral-form streaming motions. This alternative solution to Miller's ether-drift data gains independent support from other disciplines. Wilhelm Reich (c.1930-1956) demonstrated an energy continuum having distinct biological and meteorological affinities, existing in high vacuum, interactive with matter, reflected by metals, and with self-attracting (ie., gravitational) spiral-form streaming motions. Giorgio Piccardi (c.1950-1970) demonstrated a metal-reflectable solar-modulated energy affecting the physical chemistry of water and chemical reactions, revealing cyclical patterns in ordinary biology and weather, correlated to Earth's spiral-form motion through cosmic space. My own laboratory and field research provides independent support for these concepts. Special enclosures composed of dielectrical and ferromagnetic material, satisfying Reich's and Piccardi's specifications, and Miller's "ether-shielding" observations, yield quantitative physical and biological anomalies.

       Behavioral variables such as infant neglect, child abuse and obedience training, adolescent sexual repression, female subordination, and tendencies towards social violence, hierarchical structures, high-god religion and warfare were correlated and mapped, using the 1170+ global cross-cultural data base of G. P. Murdock. Regional behavior-averages demonstrated: A) Native cultures residing within the Saharasian desert belt (Sahara, Middle East, Central Asia) were possessed of the most strongly violent patriarchal, authoritarian, sex-negating, female subordinating, and child abusing elements -- a highly armored (Reich), patristic (Hodan), dominator (Eisler) culture-type. B) Regions very far removed from Saharasia (Oceania, the New World) were mostly unarmored, matristic, partnership culture types. C) Intermedial regions between the two identified extremes possessed an intermediate or blended type of culture, possessing both patristic and matristic elements. The anthropological data, and a correlated global archaeological/ historical survey, suggests a source region for armored/patristic/dominator culture within Saharasia predominantly after c.4000 BCE, when Saharasia began to convert from a semi-forested savanna into desert, with subsequent famine-driven migrations outward -- the mechanism of the great Indoaryan and Semitic cultural migrations, which the maps suggest eventually affected the entire world. A smaller amount of evidence for social violence was also identified in pre-Saharasian archaeology, before c.4000 BCE, but in all cases source regions for such cultures were characterized by more limited regional conditions of harsh desert and drought, suggesting they were "exceptions which prove the rule" of predominantly peaceful human social conditions in the pre-Saharasian period. The implications are: Human beings are by nature a peaceful species, but can be driven into conditions of social violence by harsh environmental extremes and famine starvation, which destroys softer child-positive, sex-positive and female-oriented social institutions and belief systems, and transmutes culture into more armored, violent and hierarchal conditions. Detailed maps and cross-cultural data tables and histograms are presented to show climate-linked patterns in human behavior and archaeological evidence for social violence which were previously unknown.

       In the 1950s, Wilhelm Reich claimed discovery of an apparatus that could affect basic atmospheric conditions over large areas, with a capability to end droughts and bring rains to deserts. His findings on the cloudbuster -- a passive water-grounded antenna operated from the ground, which involved no chemical agents or applied electrical or EM fields -- were published in journals and books well outside the scientific mainstream, and nearly forgotten in the wake of Reich's death. A few of his followers continued to apply the cloudbusting method in the 60s and 70s, also publishing in little-known journals. In the 1970s, I studied Reich's original publications, worked with Richard Blasband who was knowledgable of Reich's methods and apparatus, and later undertook a series of cloudbusting operations for my graduate research project at the University of Kansas, Geography-Meteorology Department. Field tests of a large cloudbuster, constructed by myself, provided positive confirmation of the device's effects upon overhead cumulus cloud dynamics (through a filmed protocol), and precipitation data for the State of Kansas showed anomalous significant peaks correlated with 12 separate operations to increase rains. My home Department at KU provided supportive oversight and approved my Thesis research, but political reactions elsewhere undermined and ended the research program, in spite of the positive evidence. Since then, I have tested the cloudbuster's ability to bring rains under mild to severe drought conditions, and even in harsh desert climates, with a continuing success. The two most significant, systematically-undertaken experiments were in the deserts of Arizona in 1989, and in the East African Sahel between 1994 through 1999. The Arizona experiments were composed of five different summertime test dates, pre-announced to NOAA offices, the results of which showed a doubling of precipitation over a very large dryland region, for a period lasting approximately one week after the onset of tests. The African experiments were supported by the State of Eritrea, and involved three different cloudbusting stations operated in a coordinated manner, by teams of workers under my direction. The results showed an approximate 36% increase in rains over Eritrea (at the edge of the hyper-arid Sahara Desert), with "downstream" increases in rains over adjacent Sahel regions. In all cases, official measured weather data were used to evaluate for effects, supplemented by satellite images and field observations. My work on this subject has encompassed tests in other regions with results of equal or even greater magnitudes over a period spanning 23 years, but the Kansas, Arizona and Eritrean trials were the most systematically undertaken. These results, taken together with field reports from Reich and others, strongly suggest the cloudbusting device works, and opens the door to entirely new methods for greening the worlds deserts. My work thereby corroborates Reich's earlier findings, and those of others such as Blasband and Eden, and suggests a renewed and open-minded investigation of Reich's theory of cosmic/atmospheric life energy (the orgone energy) is in order.

* "Seed Sprouting Inside the Orgone Energy Accumulator", Presented to the Society for Scientific Exploration, Annual Meeting, Kings College, University of Western Ontario, Canada, 8-10 June 2000, Programs & Abstracts p.16. Also in The SSE Explorer: Newsletter, Summer 2000, 16(3), p.vii.
        In the 1940s, Wilhelm Reich published experimental findings on the discovery of a biological life-energy, called orgone energy, which existed in the atmosphere and could be accumulated inside a special metal-lined enclosure called the orgone energy accumulator. His work was attacked in the press and subject to a politically-inspired Food and Drug Administration injunction which led to Reich's death in prison in 1957, and the court-ordered burning of his books and research journals. Starting in the 1970s, I undertook experimental examination of Reich's original claims regarding the accumulator, including a simple seed-sprouting experiment. Mung beans obtained from a local health food store were mixed, counted into groups of 100, placed into open glass dishes with 50ml of water, and allowed to sprout inside both a strong orgone accumulator and environmentally-matched control enclosure which excluded all metals. The accumulator and control shared nearly identical humidity and temperatures, with light being totally excluded; fresh water was added daily to each dish as necessary to keep the sprouting seeds moist, for a period of approximately 10 days, after which the sprouted seeds were photographed, blotted dry, teased apart and measured. Early trials demonstrated from 160% to a maximum of 500% growth increase inside the accumulator as compared to the controls, while later trials with more rigorous environmental controls yielded a 140% growth increase inside the accumulator. These latter experiments, undertaken during the summers of 1998-99 at my high-altitude laboratory in rural Oregon under exceptionally clean environmental conditions, showed mean growth lengths of bean sprouts at 130mm. for controls and 183mm. for orgone-charged (n.=400), with medians of 132mm. and 185mm. respectively, and maximums of 265mm. and 337mm. respectively. A paired means comparison based upon an hypothesized difference of zero between the two groups indicated these results were highly significant, with P < 0.0001. Orgone charged sprouts also yielded greater absolute weight increases, with a fresher smell and sweeter taste as compared to controls. The developed seed-sprouting protocol has yielded consistent and repeatable results, and orgone experiments of a similar design and result have been reported upon both plants and animals since the 1940s. These experiments, taken together, strongly suggest Reich made an important new discovery. The similarities of his orgone accumulator to a Faraday cage also suggest observations of anomalous effects observed inside Faraday cage "controls" by other experimenters might be the consequence of phenomenon similar to what Reich's reported for the orgone accumulator.

- "Critical Review of the Shankland, et al, Analysis of Dayton Miller's Ether-Drift Experiments", Presented to the Natural Philosophy Alliance, Berkeley, May 2000.
        Dayton Miller's work on dynamic ether drift (1933) is nearly unknown today in large measure due to a 1955 critique by Shankland, et al (1955) published after Miller's death.  Miller's interferometer fringe-shifts showed sidereal-cosmic variations at all times of day and seasons of the year, along the same cosmological axis.  Shankland acknowledged the systematic patterns in Miller's data, but explained them away as the consequence of temperature artifacts.  My review of the subject suggests this dismissal was not well-supported.  Shankland misrepresented the background history (ie., only Miller obtained positive results for ether) and displayed a strong bias against ether -- only passing reference was given to Miller's counter-critique to the temperature argument, which he had addressed in control experiments and successfully rebutted while alive. Selected sets of Miller's interferometer data, with minimal variations most easily supporting the temperature argument, were dissected and criticized, while other sets of higher magnitude fringe-shift data were apparently ignored. Shankland, et al, did not provide a serious challenge to Miller, and the entire subject of ether-drift begs for renewed open discussion and experimental evaluation.

- "Contemporary Bion Research: Support from Modern Biology", Presented at the Second International Symposia on Pleomorphism, Ashland, Oregon 19-20 October 2000.
        Around sixty years ago, Dr. Wilhelm Reich published findings on the origins of life which included the following parameters observed in his laboratory experiments: 1) The breakdown of mineral and organic materials into small vesicular forms (called bions by Reich), 2) the re-organization of some bions into heaps which later developed new membranes and life-like structure and motility, 3) the dependency of this process upon the chemistry of the solution in which the preparations were made, 4) the speeding up of the process of bionous decay via autoclavation and heating of substances to red-hot incandescence, with subsequent bion culturability and growth in some preparations, 5) the development of plasmatic forms in filtered, sterilized and frozen preparations, and 6) the existence of a sensible, observable bioenergetic radiation from bion preparations derived from beach sand. Reich's findings were generally confirmed by Prof. R. duTeil and jointly presented to the French Academie des Sciences in 1937-38, but the findings only appeared in Reich's own publications, notably the book Die Bione. There was little specialized research into the origins of life at that time, and the popular press ridiculed Reich for his discoveries. Viewed from today's perspective, we find other experimentalists who have made similar observations (ie., Krishna Bahadur's jeewanu particle). Entire new fields of microbiology anticipated by Reich's discoveries (but not by orthodox biological theory), such as that devoted to archaea and extremophiles, also derive from the observation of primitive microbes within environments once considered impossible for life, such as at deep-sea hydrothermal vents, hot springs, and within nuclear reactor cores. Other contemporary researchers point to life-like materials derived from the process of freezing and thawing, while exobiologists detect bion-like micro-forms in meteoritic materials (which were subject to incandescence). Medical research, meanwhile, increasingly is focused upon the process of "apoptosis", which appears functionally identical to Reich's findings on bionous decay, while fields devoted to pleomorphism and microbial symbiosis identify phenomenon suggestive of the bionous organization of protists. Many of these modern observations support Reich's earlier research findings, which merits a serious and renewed consideration.

        Most arguments and experiments addressing the question of aether focus upon anticipated changes in the behavior and properties of light, such as speed of transmission or frequency shifting. Experiments undertaken since the 1940s (not originating within physics), using simple but novel arrangements of different materials, have yielded anomalous phenomena suggesting the existence of an energy-rich substrate meeting the requirements of a dynamic aether weakly interacting with matter, but also with biological and meteorological properties. Empirical findings, notably of Wilhelm Reich, indirectly support aether-theory in ways not generally discussed or anticipated by aether-advocates. Meteorological, biological, nuclear and solar-terrestrial aspects are discussed. Practical applications suggested by medical experiments, seed-charging and desert-greening field experiments are also reviewed and documented.

        The first geographical mapping of cross-cultural data, from 1100+ different cultures, reveals a major climatic influence upon human behavior and social institutions. The Saharasian desert belt (N. Africa, Mideast, Central Asia), a formerly wet region today characterized by harsh desert, held the world's most extreme patristic cultures (child-abusive, sex-repressive, female-subordinating, despotic, warlike), while the most matristic cultures (gentle child-treatment, sex-positive, egalitarian, peaceful) were found predominantly in Oceania and the Pre-Columbian Americas. A related systematic mapping of ancient archaeological evidence suggests: 1) the global absence of significant patrism anywhere on Earth prior to c.4000 BCE, and 2) the first-genesis of significant patrism within Saharasia at c.4000 BCE, when it firstly converted from moist to hyper-arid conditions, with a subsequent diffusion of patrism into the Saharasian borderlands, and globally to form its modern-day distribution.

        While Michelson-Morely are given credit for having disproven the existence of aether, their very short, 6-hour experiment addressed only the theologically-necessary static aether of Newton. Dayton Miller, student of Michelson, continued researching this same question and undertook the most systematic and thorough work on the subject, proving the existence of a dynamic and Earth-entrained aether, with properties that made understandable the very small results observed by M-M and nearly all investigators of this question. Miller's work was never addressed straightforwardly, however, but only ridiculed and marginalized by political fiat. Only after his death did his opponents attempt to finally defeat his work by, once more, raising questions he had repeatedly addressed during his lifetime. Miller's work on the dynamic aether has never been replicated by his critics, nor to my knowledge by his supporters, which is what would be necessary to either fully confirm or refute his findings. However, there are numerous other researchers who have come to nearly similar conclusions, or who have described a natural aether-like energetic phenomenon with very similar properties. At the very least, physics textbooks should cease misrepresenting the M-M experiments as "definitive" and more accurately portray the question of aether, or energy-in-space, as an open question.

Program and Abstracts, pp.41-42.
        One of the more significant proofs for a new scientific finding is the independent discovery and/or verification of similar findings by other researchers. There is growing evidence for such independent discovery of a dynamic energy in space, with both biological and meteorological characteristics, based upon the work of different researchers. Dayton Miller's work identified a dynamic aether, moving faster at higher altitudes, and slowed or reflected by dense materials such as metals or stone. Wilhelm Reich discovered an unusual energy, the orgone, reflectable by metals and more active at higher altitudes, with cosmic, biological and meteorological functions. Giorgio Piccardi discovered a similar biocosmic, physico-chemical fluctuating phenomenon at work in physical chemistry, reflected by metal plate, more active at higher altitudes, and possessing significant solar-terrestrial, biological and meteorological components. Harold Burr, a neurosurgeon, identified an electrodynamic field surrounding and penetrating living organisms, with environmental-meteorological components. Frank Brown, investigating the biological clock, observed similar unshieldable cosmic solar-lunar phenomena capable of affecting the behavior and metabolism of many living creatures. Other names could be added to this incomplete listing, of scientists whose work either directly demonstrated or implied and/or postulated the existence of a very similar natural energetic principle (i.e., Halton Arp, Bjorn Nordenstrom, Rupert Sheldrake). Virtually all of these researchers have been attacked and censored or through other unethical political tactics, shut out of participation in their different fields of research.

        The cloudbuster, a device and method for triggering the return of episodes of rains across broad dryland regions, was invented in 1952 as a product of the controversial life-energy theories of the late Wilhelm Reich. Since 1977, this technique has been studied by the author in a series of field operations. The present experiments focused upon major drought episodes in drylands, in Israel and Africa. In two cases, Israel and Eritrea, healthy rainfalls were restored across the entire target regions within days after onset of operations. Streams and reservoirs filled, and large areas of barren desert were greened. In the case of Namibia, results were slower in developing and less significant, but were generally correlated with the ending of a major drought episode in southern Africa. Additional evidence here is added to that previously published and presented, that cloudbusting has the capacity to reverse precipitation declines, and green deserts.

        The slowing of Pacific Easterly winds and related El Niño phenomenon may be the product of a west-to-east trans-Pacific spreading of the desert-like inversion atmosphere from Sahara-Asian (Saharasian) deserts. This possibility was first suggested in my "Desert-Drought Map", applying climatological classifications for both land and open ocean regions. Saharasia is a source of dusts and hazy inversion conditions which migrate across large regions of adjacent ocean, often to affect distant continents. Specifically, North American deserts appear to be strongly influenced by trans-Pacific dusty/hazy air movements of Saharasian origins. The slow migration of this arid air mass across the Pacific is identifiable in maps of long-wave infrared radiation to space, in vector maps of desert aerosols captured in airborne and surface sampling devices, and in direct observations of the "marine haze/dry fog" layer characterizing the Pacific Ocean east of Hawaii; this same air mass moves east from coastal to mountain basin regions of southwestern North America , whereupon it is identified as "desert haze".

* "Modern Horrific Medicine: Unnecessary Sexual Surgery", Presented to the 3rd Int. Symposium on Circumcision, National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Centers, Washington, DC. 1994.
        One of the more telling methods for understanding the urge to mutilate the genitals of young males and females is to view the problem cross-culturally. There is a cross-cultural pattern recorded in the anthropological literature, demonstrating that cultures which engage in genital mutilations also have, in general: high levels of political hierarchy, premarital sexual taboos, subordinated female status, taboos regarding vaginal, hymenal, and menstrual blood, male dominance over childbirth matters (couvade), an emphasis upon military glory, high levels of alcoholic aggression, and belief in a moralistic high god. The argument is raised that the sadistic energy directed towards the sexual organs of children is but only one expression of a larger cultural component of sadistic energy more generally directed at sexual functions, especially childhood and female sexuality. From the cross-cultural and other scientific evidence, one can make an extended critique of other ritual sexual mutilations not generally considered to be in the same category as genital mutilations. Unnecessary surgeries upon the sexual organs of women in modern American hospitals are critically reviewed from this new perspective, wherein the same medical shamans who perform painful and unnecessary genital mutilations on children -- the obstetrical/gynecological specialists -- are given similar critical decision-making roles for a variety of other generally unnecessary but often routine and common sexual mutilations: episiotomy, Cesarean section childbirth, and hysterectomy all have been criticized by health reformers for their generally unnecessary nature, and for the subsequent problems they create for the women subject to them. Here, we view them as expressions of culture-wide sexual anxiety and sadism. For the patient, such sexual mutilations dampen or extinguish sexual feeling, thereby relieving the individual of sexual anxiety. For the medical surgeon, the mutilations provide an outlet for scientifically rationalized sadistic urges. Carrying the critique farther, the current "epidemics" of breast and prostate cancer are critically reviewed as expressions of epidemic mass sexual hysteria and sexual anxiety, lacking in a solid scientific foundation. The absence of serious investigation of natural healing methods, the broadening of diagnostic criteria to define larger numbers of healthy people into the "sick" category, and the use of medical-police tactics to imprison and suppress health reform dissenters, are reviewed as critical components in the "scientific" rationalization of traditional hospital mutilations as "treatment". This analysis is particularly relevant where cultural propaganda regarding the "unhealthy" nature of the normal breast is used to justify "enhancement" mutilations, or where unscientific "genetic" screening methods are employed to convince anxious but otherwise completely healthy women into having "preventative" breast-amputation mutilations. Other high-tech screening methods, such as mammography and other forms of x-ray when used for diagnosis in the absence of independent clinical evidence of pathology are critically reviewed as factors in the "elevation in cancer rates". In short, American medicine is awash in a host of various forms of unnecessary, scientifically invalid and barbaric ritualized genital/sexual mutilations. Most of these are as bad or worse than anything practiced by other cultures, such as infibulation of little girls in Africa. While this latter African practice has attracted much attention and criticism in the American press, circumcision of baby boys, and other "modern medical" mutilations, have not.

        Experimental findings from a variety of research disciplines have independently observed and documented, or theoretically derived and implied, the existence of an energy in space which satisfies the described properties of a dynamic aether, but one with biological and meteorological properties. From the brief 1887 experiment of Michelson-Morley, undertaken for three days only in the basement of a stone building, one may properly conclude only the defeat of the static aether of Newton they never followed through with their expressed desire to test for a dynamic aether. An Earth-entrained dynamic aether would not be detectable from basement locations, or from inside any dense enclosure. Dayton Miller's later work (1920-33) satisfied these criteria, of high altitude and light density of interferometer environment, clearly detecting the dynamic aether. In later years (c.1950), Giorgio Piccardi detected an unusual energetic phenomenon with similar and additional unusual properties: solar-terrestrial components, affected by metals (density), more active at higher altitudes, capable of affecting the physical chemistry of water, with physiological and meteorological components. Harold Burr identified (c.1960) a similar electrodynamic phenomenon at work in nature. Wilhelm Reich likewise identified a life-energy phenomenon at work (c.1940) in living systems, in the atmosphere, and in ultra-high vacuum: capable of influencing the physical properties of air and water, reflectable by metal shields, more active at higher altitudes. More recent studies on anomalous energy fluctuations in ultra-high vacuum (Puthoff), anomalous coincidental placements of high and low red-shift stellar objects (Arp), and streaming cosmic plasmas in space (Alfven) provide additional independent evidence suggesting the existence of a tangible and measurable bio-cosmic energy continuum pervading the natural world.

        Behavioral variables such as infant neglect, child abuse and obedience training, adolescent sexual repression, female subordination, and tendencies towards social violence, hierarchical structures, high-god religion and warfare were correlated and mapped, using the global cross-cultural data base of George P. Murdock. Murdock's data encompassed 1170 different cultures, has been peer-reviewed for accuracy, and is widely-consulted source for cross-cultural social theory testing. My work was the first mapping of this treasure-trove of cultural information, which revealed a profound spatial pattern imbedded within the data. Native cultures residing within the Saharasian desert belt (Sahara, Middle East, Central Asia) were possessed of the most strongly violent patriarchal, authoritarian, sex-negating, female subordinating, and child abusing elements -- a highly armored (Reich), patristic (Hodan), dominator (Eisler) culture type. Regions very far removed from Saharasia (Oceania, the New World) were mostly unarmored, matristic, partnership culture types. The anthropological data, and a correlated archaeological/historical survey, suggest a source region for dominator culture within Saharasia only after c.4000 BCE, when Saharasia began to convert from a semiforested savanna into desert, with subsequent famine-driven migrations outward -- the mechanism of the great Indoaryan and Semitic cultural movements, which the maps suggest eventually affected the entire world. The data imply several phases of diffusion, and are independently supported in Pre-Columbian contact theory and genetic mapping. The pattern in the data is real, and strongly implies the existence of a global period of peaceful human culture, with free and probably democratic social conditions, prior to 4000 BCE.

* "Similarities and Differences Between Wilhelm Reich's Orgone Accumulator and Giorgio Piccardi's Shielded Enclosures", Presented (in absentia) to the International Symposium on Relations of Biological and Physicochemical Processes with Solar Activity and Other Environmental Factors, Pushchino, Russia, 1993, Abstracts of Papers, p.229.
        From 1934 to 1957, Dr. Wilhelm Reich published a series of experimental reports demonstrating the existence of a specific biologically and meteorologically active energy continuum at work within the atmospheric ocean, and in high vacuum. Reich developed unique experimental devices, notably a metallic energy-accumulating enclosure (the orgone accumulator), which was capable of altering the basic physical properties inside of itself. Reich and other physicians associated with his group reported powerful healing effects of the orgone accumulator upon a wide variety of disorders, including cancers and other degenerative ailments. Severe burns also responded well to the orgone radiation, which was additionally objectified through various measures. Visual and subjective sensory examinations of the orgone accumulator have yielded fairly consistent positive indications of an unusual property, as compared to a control enclosure, and at least one double-blind test of human-sized orgone accumulator devices has yielded positive indications of such effects. Controlled studies with plants and cancer mice have likewise demonstrated the growth-promoting and healing properties of the orgone radiation. Other controlled studies with the orgone accumulator, verified numerous times, have indicated patterned changes in internal air temperature, humidity, and electroscopical discharge rates, tied to meteorological and solar fluctuations. Anomalous changes in response patterns of Geiger-Muller counters and ionization properties within high vacua suggest that the orgone accumulator effect is that of a basic energy continuum, similar to that of a dynamic aether, though one possessing distinct and powerful biological properties. Reich therefore discussed the orgone radiation in the context of being a life-energy continuum. In the USA, Reich's research was attacked by the US Government in the 1950s, which banned and burned all pertinent publications, initiating a period of censorship of the topic which continues today. In Europe, however, discovery of this same energetic principle appears to have developed in the works of the late Dr. G. Piccardi, who described a similar metallic/organic enclosure which possessed similar properties to the orgone accumulator, though apparently not as intensive. The metallic enclosures used in Piccardi's tests are similar to the metallic/organic accumulators used in Reich's energy experiments. Piccardi's observations on water activation parallel those of Reich on the capacity of water to absorb the atmospheric orgone energy. Likewise, Bortel's suggestion of a specific weather radiation is founded upon observations similar to those made by Reich and his coworkers, who came to similar conclusions. The works of Miller on the dynamic aether drift, Burr on electrodynamic fields, Alfven and Arp on plasma energy in space, Kervran on biological transmutations, Brown on exogenous biological clock phenomena, and Benveniste on water-activating principles in high dilutions, have likewise demonstrated either the importance of cosmic spatial/environmental factors to experimental results, or the necessity for the existence of a biologically and meteorologically active ether-like energy continuum. The author suggests that the discovery by Reich of the orgone energy, which is an excitable, pulsatile, water-active cosmic-atmospheric-biological force, provides a concrete and experimentally-demonstrated mechanism to the entire field of physico-chemical and biological fluctuating phenomena.

        Currently popular models of history exclude the possibility of any major global influence upon climate upon human culture and history, and likewise deny the possibility of significant culture contact between the Old and New Worlds prior to the time of Columbus. Nevertheless, much empirical evidence has been discovered in support of such unorthodox minority positions, generating a storm of controversy.  Recently evaluated and mapped world-wide cross-cultural data on behavior and cultural institutions have provided independent corroboration for those unorthodox views. There is a positive geographical correlation between the harshest, most arid contiguous climate region on Earth (the Saharasian Desert Belt: North Africa, Middle-East, Central Asia) and the region of most extreme patrist culture on Earth (with abusive infant-care and child-care practices, repression of sexuality and of females, male dominance, and high levels of social violence). The hyperarid character of the Saharasian desert belt and its associated patrist cultural complex both developed at about the same time, c.4000-3500 BCE, and an explicit causal relationship has previously been identified and argued. Cultural exceptions to this global geographical-temporal association, of harsh deserts and harsh patrism, appear as the product of trans-oceanic, pre-Columbian contact and diffusion. The mapped patterns of behavior, in this context, provide the basis for a new, more empirically-based world view, in which elements of ecological environment (climatic determinants), cultural environment (child-rearing and sexuality), and long distance, large scale migration and diffusion patterns (pre-Columbian contacts) play central, fundamental roles.

        Some 12 years of climatic analysis and field work undertaken by the author in regions of desert and drought have indicated that droughts are often initiated by intrusions of arid air from geographically adjacent desert regions. Field work in Florida in the early 1970s indicated the intrusion of Saharan haze and dust into Florida and Georgia during droughy periods. Residues of Saharan dusts on vehicles and satellite images showing air currents confirmed the connections. Later field work in the Great Plains and Midwest indicated that droughts in those areas were initiated by the intrusion of desert air out of the arid American Southwest. In both of these cases, atmospheric characteristics similar to those seen in desert regions (stagnating haze, high pressure, inversions) appeared in the normally wet region that was suffering from drought. Similar processes are at work in "dry season" regions, which develop desert-like conditions on a seasonal basis, following the intrusion of arid air from adjacent desert regions. When a map is procured that includes both desert regions and regions suffering from "dry seasons", and likewise includes data for climate over the open oceans, it is seen that all desert regions on Earth have an interconnecting characteristic. A Global Desert/Drought Map was produced, which suggests that all drought and "dry season" phenomena are secondary effects of a more primary global desertification.

Updated and also presented to the Annual Meeting, Association of American Geographers, Washington, DC, 1991, Abstracts of Papers, p.46.
        Published field experiments undertaken since 1952 have demonstrated a novel instrument and technology for drought abatement, the Reich cloudbuster. Based upon an empirically determined but unorthodox theory of atmospheric functioning, the cloudbuster has been field tested by myself on 37 different occasions since 1977, mostly under mild to severe drought conditions, with an approximate 80% success in restoring significant cyclical rainfall within 48 hours after onset of tests. Cloudbuster tests under more restrictive desert conditions proceeded in the summer of 1989, in the core desert region of the southern Colorado River Basin; the goal was to reduce atmospheric stagnation and increase moisture, clouds, and rains across the area. Five separate experimental tests, each of 3-5 days duration, were undertaken roughly once each month from May through September; experimental dates were selected well in advance. Field observations and National Weather Service data indicated widespread atmospheric changes after the onset of cloudbusting tests: atmospheric stagnation and haziness were reduced, air temperatures generally declined, and percent cloud cover and rains increased. Measured increases in rainfall of up to five times seasonal normals were observed in a several thousand square kilometers area centered on the cloudbusting site, with a general doubling of rainfall for a solid week over an even larger region. The distribution and timing of rainfall episodes were similar to those observed following prior drought-abatement experiments. My observations and data verify the prior published claims of Dr. Wilhelm Reich, inventor of the cloudbuster, on the desert-greening potentials of cloudbusting, and on the existence of an ether-like, excitable, life-like atmospheric property governing clouds and rain.

(The following Abstract was updated in 1990 from the 1987 original.)
        For more than 13 years (1977 - 1990), the author has conducted field trials with the Reich cloudbuster, a novel water-grounded antenna operated from the ground and which, thorough an unorthodox theory of atmospheric functioning, influences cloud growth and circulation patterns governing rainfall. Reported increases in moisture, clouds and rains have been observed to follow cloudbusting operations in a rather consistent and repeatable manner, sometimes in a most dramatic fashion. Initial field tests on the dynamics of cumulus clouds, involving densitometer readings of cloud images, suggested immediate influences over distances of several kilometers. Later work on enhancement of precipitation, during both drought and non-drought conditions, confirmed more significant effects over regions ranging in size from hundreds of thousands of square kilometers in area. These included changes in pressure, circulation, cloud cover and rainfall patterns. A definite drought-breaking potential has been confirmed on many occasions. Approximately 37 field trials have been undertaken with the cloudbuster by the author since 1977. National Weather Service data, plus field measurements and satellite images, were used to evaluate for effects. These trials include: 12 operations in Kansas during non-drought conditions (1977-1978); 12 additional operations in Kansas during mild to severe drought conditions (1979-1980); 2 operations in Florida during severe drought conditions (1981-1982); 2 operations in Illinois during mild drought (1983); and several major extended field operations during recent extreme droughts of historical magnitudes, such as the Southeastern USA drought of 1986, the great Midwestern USA drought of 1988, and the Pacific Northwest drought of 1988. Additionally, six separate cloudbuster field trials were conducted in the deserts of Arizona during 1988 and 1989. A dramatic increase and peaking of rainfall was observed within 48 hours after 80% of these 37 field trials, to include those operations undertaken during mild, severe, and extreme drought as assessed independently. Four of the six desert operations were likewise followed by a major increase and peaking of rainfall within 48 hours, with ambiguous results in the other two cases. On average, the desert experiments were followed by a doubling of rainfall quantities for a full week, for a region of several hundred kilometers radius around the cloudbuster. In the author's view, the cloudbuster constitutes a breakthrough technology for the breaking of droughts; a distinct desert-greening capability also exists. This work confirms the research findings reported by Dr. Wilhelm Reich some five decades ago, and indirectly supports his theory of an excitable, weather-active medium at work in the physical chemistry of water, and in the atmosphere.

        From 1934 to 1957, Dr. Wilhelm Reich published a series of experimental reports demonstrating the existence of a specific biologically and meteorologically active energy continuum at work within the atmospheric ocean, and in high vacuum. Reich developed unique experimental devices, notably a metallic energy-accumulating enclosure (the orgone accumulator), and a special water-grounded instrument for affecting clouds and weather patterns from a distance (the cloudbuster). His most crucial experiments and observations have been verified and duplicated in both Europe and the USA. In controlled studies, the metallic energy-accumulating enclosures have been found to have specific influences upon air temperature, humidity, and electroscopical discharge rate in a manner dependent upon local meteorology. A stimulating effect upon plant growth, wound healing, and general physiology have also been documented. The cloudbuster, which must be partly grounded in moving, unpolluted water, has a demonstrated capacity to influence cloud dynamics over large regions, and has been used to break droughts and bring rains in various parts of the world. This body of work demonstrating the existence of an excitable, pulsatile cosmic-atmospheric-biological energy is in general agreement with similar findings of Piccardi and Bortels on fluctuating physicochemical and biological phenomena. In particular, the metallic enclosures used in Piccardi's tests are similar to the metallic accumulators used in Reich's energy experiments. Piccardi's observations on water activation parallel those of Reich on the capacity of water to absorb the atmospheric orgone energy, a principle employed most effectively in the cloudbuster. Likewise, Bortel's suggestion of a specific weather radiation is founded upon observations similar to those made by Reich and his coworkers, who came to similar conclusions. The works of Miller on the dynamic aether drift, Burr on electrodynamic fields, Alfven and Arp on plasma energy in space, Kervran on biological transmutations, Brown on exogenous biological clock phenomena, and Benveniste on water-activating principles in high dilutions, have likewise demonstrated either the importance of cosmic spatial/environmental factors to experimental results, or the necessity for the existence of a biologically and meteorologically active ether-like energy continuum.

        Herbs with a contraceptive effect were knowingly used by primitive peoples around the world.  Such knowledge seems to have persisted in its most potent form in matrist cultures, where women's status was high.  The dispersed distribution of tribes using herbal contraceptives, and their closer association to matristic cultures where Judeo-Christian and Islamic influences were minimal, suggests that the knowledge of these herbs was once widespread.  The contraceptive potency of some of these herbs has been verified by laboratory testing; as such, they stand as the solution to the riddle of "infertile premarital promiscuity" present in many matrist cultures.

        A Reich cloudbuster was field tested for its reported ability to modify the weather.  Photographic analysis of tested cumulus clouds revealed an increased rate of decay as compared to a control group.  NOAA weather data indicated, on the average, a decrease in percent cloud cover and precipitation in Kansas following precipitation abatement tests run during rainy periods.  Summarized precipitation enhancement tests revealed an increase in percent cloud cover and precipitation following onset of testing.  The increase in precipitation was, on the average, the largest amount to occur within a week encompassing the test dates.  Many other interesting phenomena were observed and minimally documented.  Natural weather conditions could not fully explain all of the effects noted.  While a high degree of statistical significance was not achieved in this preliminary study, the data and phenomena observed do fit comfortably with a positive interpretation of the device's efficacy.
