Wilhelm Reich

Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957) introduced “Orgone” to the West. Reich was considered a “radical figure in the history of psychiatry.”

The Orgone energy conspiracy proposes the theory that orgone may be related to, or a branch of “Vril”.

Conspiracy[]

Vril is a supposed esoteric energy force or power that the Thule Society and the rumored Vril society were in pursuit of in the 1920s in NS Germany. Twenty years later, the “Orgone” concept was then introduced to the West by Austrian doctor, William Reich after immigrating to the US in 1939. Meanwhile, Nazi Germany is on the Deutsche Antarktische Expedition 1938/39 in the same year.

The Institute for Orgonomic Science

Orgone energy is an esoteric concept that was proposed in the 1930s by Wilhelm Reich,[1][2][3] as a health and biological energy comparable to the Chinese concept of Qi 氣 “energy force”, or the Hindu Prana “life force”. Reich argued that deficits or constrictions in bodily orgone were at the root of many diseases. Reich founded the Orgone Institute ca. 1942[4] to pursue research into orgone energy after he immigrated to the US in 1939, and used it to publish literature and distribute material relating to the topic for more than a decade.

Wilhelm Reich was an Austrian doctor of medicine and psychoanalyst, a member of the second generation of analysts after Sigmund Freud.[5] Reich authored several influential books, most notably Character Analysis (1933), The Mass Psychology of Fascism (1933), and The Sexual Revolution (1936). Reich became known as one of the most radical figures in the history of psychiatry.[6]
