The name of Wilhelm Reich has appeared several times in this series, “Our Friend, The Ether”:
- The Montauk project has been called one of America’s greatest modern mysteries. The story began with the pioneering work of Wilhelm Reich and Nikola Tesla, took form in government-sponsored weather control experiments in the early 1940s, and crystallized in the ill-fated Philadelphia Experiment on invisibility during World War Two. 
- The Phoenix Project had taken work from MK-Ultra, had taken work from Wilhelm Reich, had taken work from many sectors including the “Philadelphia Experiment.” And they integrated this into one super mind-research project. 
- Reactivated at Montauk was the old “sage radar”, because it transmitted on the same frequency range that Wilhelm Reich used for his orgone studies. 
Who was this Wilhelm Reich?
“In November 1957, a world-famous physician and scientist died in a U.S. federal penitentiary where he had been imprisoned for resisting an unlawful injunction designed to stop his vital research, steal his discoveries, and kill the discoverer. That man was Wilhelm Reich, M.D. This was the culmination of more than 10 years of harassment and persecution at the hands of carefully concealed conspirators who used U.S. Federal Agencies and Courts to defraud the people of this earth and prevent them from knowing and utilizing crucial discoveries in physics, medicine and sociology which could help bring about happiness and peace for all mankind which good men and women everywhere seek and work towards.” 
Wilhelm Reich’s “public experimental findings were revolutionary. They threatened at once, the existing commercial interests, especially the Drug Industry, the Power Companies, etc. The squeeze was on to kill this discovery, kill it dead!” 
In the 1930’s and 1940’s, Wilhelm Reich was able to detect and measure the existence of etheric energy. Reich determined that stacking alternating layers of fiberglass (an organic substance) and steel wool (an inorganic substance) would actually attract and collect orgone/etheric energy of both the life-beneficial positive form (which Reich called “OR” or “POR”) and harmful negative etheric energy (“deadly orgone” or “DOR”). He constructed large boxes called orgone accumulators or “oracs” (diagram above) using this simple layering principle and was able to successfully heal his patients of various ailments, including various forms of cancer, by having them sit inside the box for periods of time. 
Reich’s work was continued in earnest in the 1960’s by some of the more open-minded Russian scientists such as Dr. Nikolai Kozyrev (1908-1983), who also scientifically proved that such unseen energies indeed exist all around us. 
Following in the footsteps of Wilhelm Reich and Nikolai Kozyrev, thousands of Ph.D.-level researchers from both sides of the former Iron Curtain spanning multiple generations have continued Kozyrev and Reich’s pioneering work, slowly forcing mainstream Western science to finally, “officially recognize” the concept of a universal, unseen energy medium they call “dark matter,” “vacuum flux” or “zero-point energy.” 
The designation “zero-point energy” originates from an experiment conducted by Dr. Hal Puthoff, a respected scientist from Cambridge University. Puthoff created an area that was completely free of air (a vacuum) and lead-shielded from all known electromagnetic radiation fields by using what is known as a Faraday cage. This airless vacuum space was then cooled down to absolute zero or -273° C, the temperature where all matter should stop vibrating and thus produce no heat. (That is where the term “zero point” comes from, the temperature of absolute zero.) But instead of no heat at absolute zero, the experiment detected a tremendous amount of energy, from a completely non-electromagnetic source! 
Call it what you will, The Ether, zero-point energy, orgone energy, etc. “In ancient Asiatic philosophies,” wrote Wilhelm Reich, “the ether takes on the properties of a living being without actually becoming one — prana and similar concepts.” “God” and “Ether” are “thought systems springing from the rational attempt of the human animal to comprehend his origin.” 
“God supposedly explains the emotional and spiritual existence of man, while the ether explains his material, physical existence.” Both conceptions “are many thousands of years old. They form the nucleus of the two great systems of religion and science.” 
“In human thinking, God and ether have something else in common, namely, that scientific thinkers regard them both as nonexistent.”
