PROBLEMS WITH ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS
There is currently much controversy about the effects electric, magnetic and radio/microwave fields may have on our human biology. Increasingly, evidence is showing correlations between childhood leukemia and exposure to strong magnetic fields, increased miscarriages and eye cataracts due to extended computer use, brain tumor development and cellular phones, electric blanket use and miscarriages. Magnetic fields have been shown to disrupt rapid cell development that occurs in fetal growth which is why pregnant women are often cautioned about over-exposure to electro-magnetic fields. Strong magnetic fields can be emitted by faulty wiring, transformers in computers, fluorescent lights, dimmer light switches, switch boxes, electric blankets, car ignition wiring, and many hidden sources in the home, at work, and in the environment. Also, orgone accumulators react unfavorably to strong electromagnetic fields and should only be used in an area that is relatively free from such energetic "pollution".The exposure of an orgone accumulator to certain secondary energies can create an over excitation of the orgone energy called the "oranur state" which can be uncomfortable and even toxic. If the oranur state is prolonged, it can actually kill the orgone energy, turning it into a deadly form called "dor" - deadly orgone energy. For this reason, the environment in which you use an orgone accumulator is very important.
Do not use orgone accumulators near operating televisions, computers, fluorescent lights, electric blankets, microwave ovens, standard radioactive smoke detectors, x-ray equipment, electrical air-ionizing generators, strong chemical fumes or within 25 miles of a nuclear plant.
Remember, what is good for an orgone accumulator
is good for you, too.
Exposure to nuclear radioactivity was the first observation of the oranur effect by Dr. Reich which he wrote in The Oranur Experiment. Because of the serious consequences of that exposure, orgone accumulators should never be used around any nuclear materials. The standard form of smoke detector in the home is made with .9 microcuries of americium-- a radioactive material. For your own health--remove them and replace them with the photoelectric kinds. Especially get them out of your bedrooms, particularly children's. New studies as well as Canadian ones done by Dr. Petkau, show that continual, low-dose radiation is as harmful as brief, high doses.
The proximity of nuclear power plants is debated; some accumulator users become more sensitive to radioactive exposure and eventually have to move beyond 50 miles. However, be at least 25 miles from one, not just for using an accumulator, but for your own health as well.
If the orgone accumulator is located in a clinic, do not place it anywhere near x-ray equipment.
If you are receiving radiation therapy, or any test where you have to ingest a radioactive substance, do not use an accumulator. Irradiated blue topaz gemstones are also radioactive.
Because electrical devices are very different, it can be confusing in trying to figure out what can irritate an orgone accumulator. An informed, but also a common sense approach is the best in this regard. "Operating" means turned on, as when fluorescent lights are either on or off, or when a microwave is actually emitting microwaves when heating food. You can use an accumulating device around these appliances when they are turned off.. Some appliances can be plugged in, turned off, and still give off an electromagnetic field such as the newer "instant on" TV sets, however, and they need to be unplugged before using an accumulator near them.
Televisions & computers:
The main problem with TVs and computers is the cathode ray gun which is activated only when a picture is on the screen and it emits high level electromagnetic fields as well as low-dose x-rays. The newer lap top computers with LED screens don't emit low-dose x-rays or as much EM radiation as the cathode ray tube style, but even they do give off some low level electro-magnetic (EM fields) and it is not advisable to use an orgone device close to them when they are switched on. Long term, continual exposure to cathode ray tube (CRT) computers is not good for anyone whether or not they are using an accumulator. TVs and computers also give off strong electro-magnetic (EM) fields. It is especially very difficult to be shielded from the magnetic fields. This form of irritation can cause the initial over-excitement of children when they first watch TV which quickly becomes the zombie, couch-potato, low energy state. In energetic terms, the orgone energy in your body becomes over-excited initially by the irritation from the low-dose x-rays and EM fields, the oranur state. When the over-excitation is prolonged, the orgone energy is deadened, the dor state, and a loss of energy is observed. The EM fields usually drop off after three feet from the emitting object. (Remember in the "old days" when they used to tell us to sit back from the TV? Now think of how close and for how long people sit at computers.) NOTE: The plasma screen and LCD TV screens are backlit with fluorescent tubes; the newer LED screens are not and are better for use around orgone devices.
Fluorescent Lights & CFLs:
Like televisions and computers, tube-style fluorescent lights contain a small cathode ray gun (CRT) at one end that activates the gases inside the tube to create the light. Again, it is the biological irritation from this CRT and the transformer that is the problem. Dr. John Ott, in his pioneering book Health & Light, documented these effects as well as the problems associated with the color of the fluorescent light.
CFLs also give off low doses of microwaves and since they are often used as reading lights their EM fields are close to the head which makes these lights the most biologically dangerous. In addition, the mercury inside the CFLs pose a serious health hazard if broken and will contribute 10 metric tons of mercury to landfills each year (according to Scientific American Magazine).
Incandescent light bulbs are the safest and now there are full spectrum ones available and the unfrosted bulbs also give off a natural light. Halogen lights have low EM fields except where the transformer near the dimmer switch is located; here the magnetic field is quite high but also drops off quickly. LED lights are now popular and also appear to have low EM fields; however, the diode chips used are manufactured with galium arsenide which is terribly poisonous; it's not in the chips, but is a serious manufacturing waste problem.
Studies have shown that the strong magnetic fields from electric blankets can interfere with cell growth, causing miscarriages in pregnant women. Being so close to this field, and for so long while sleeping, poses significant health problems. Using an orgone accumulator blanket in any form with an electric blanket can make physical symptoms worse and must be avoided. Regular household appliances like a vacuum cleaner, blender, toaster, etc. that are on briefly, don't seem to be bothersome. Refrigerators, heaters, etc. that may be running all the time are OK, just don't stand right next to them for any period of time, for instance, if you are wearing the orgone vest, or wrapped in an orgone blanket.
Electric Heaters and Sparking Motors:
Do not store or use an orgone device within 3 feet of operating electric heaters or sparking motors.
Actual studies of radio-microwaves on orgone accumulators has not been done. However, because microwaves do irritate (cook) tissue, logically they should be avoided as the amount of leakage coming from them is often unknown. Initial studies on the chemical changes occurring in food heated by them suggest they shouldn't be used even for that purpose. Hospitals no longer use microwaves to heat milk for infants as it alters it to such a degree as to promote the growth of pathogens.
Not only do the electrical fields of an air ion generator irritate an orgone accumulator, but the blackish, dust-like particles created by them also have a very toxic effect. Studies were performed in the '70s which suggested that the black deposits might be "melanor" a substance formed from the high concentration of dor- precipitating it out of the atmosphere. Why the ion generators do this is unknown.
Strong chemical fumes:
The irritation of accumulators by strong chemical fumes like acetone, paint thinners, pesticides, etc. is a common observation.
Contamination of an orgone accumulator:
If your orgone accumulator device develops irritation, wiping it down with water and airing it out is the best remedy. Orgone blankets and the like, should be aired out, preferably in fresh air and sun for a number of days if they develop an irritating feeling. If you discard an accumulator, dismantle it first.
ORGONICS is now offering a range of devices to measure these various fields. Once you find the electromagnetic "hotspots" you can then take the steps necessary to remedy the situation such as improving grounding wires, moving cribs away from walls where wiring is located, shielding computers or replacing the CRT styles with energetically "quieter" LCD screens, removing fluorescent lights, throwing out the microwave oven and seeing how far back you should sit while watching your big screen TV.
THE TRIFIELD® BROADBAND METER
Very easy to use and simple to read. An
invaluable tool for home and work.
Measures: AC electric fields, magnetic fields, and radio/microwave fields.
The Broadband Trifield ® Meter combines all the features needed for fast, accurate measurements of three fields: AC electric and magnetic fields, and radio/microwave emissions. It independently measures the electric field and the magnetic field, and is properly scaled to indicate the full magnetude of currents produced by each type of field inside a conductive body. As a result, it "sees" much more than anyother electromagnetic pollution meter.
This meter is combines magnetic, electric, and radio/microwave detectors in one package, so that the entire nonionizing electromagnetic spectrum is covered. in addition, the magnetic setting and the electric setting measure true magnetude: a feature found elsewhere only in more expensive meters. If you hold the meter in the center of a room and tip it to various angles, the magnetic reading will stay approximately the same regardless of which way you tip or rotate it. The electric reading is similar, although the presence of your body alters the actual electric field, so readings will vary more. The radio/microwave setting reads the full power of radio/microwaves when the meter is pointed toward the source.
Depending upon which four settings the knob is set, (MAGNETIC 0-100 range, MAGNETIC 0-3 range, ELECTRIC, RADIO/MICROWAVE), the meter detects either frequency-weighted magnetic fields (two separate scales), or frequency-weighted electric fields in the ELF and VLF range.
It detects electric fields from power line
frequencies up through 2.5 GHz. This fills in the gap from 100KHz
to 50 MHz, which includes many amateur radio frequencies so that
antenna radiation patterns can be measured. The Trifield®
Broadband detects magnetic fields up through 100 KHz.
This meter is useful for amateur radio operators and for detecting concealed sources of radio/microwaves.
The AC electric section can be used to determine whether an AC line is hot or neutral, even through a wall. It can easily detect by proximity which side of a wall outlet or which wire of an extension cord is hot. It can also detect improper grounding, as well as the extensive electric fields from video monitors and fluorescent lights.
The electric section consists of three metal plates under the meter face. Because the meter housing is plastic, the electric fields can penetrate through to the plates, which are also arranged to detect AC electric fields in the X, Y, and Z directions. Circuitry similar to the magnetic section converts the signals into an electric field signal which is frequency weighted. Sensitivity is 0.5-100 KV/m at 60 Hz, with resolution of 0.5 KV/m (1 KV/m=1000V/m). Accuracy at mid-range is +/- 30%.
The AC magnetic section has several uses. It can detect which of several wires or transformer is carrying current, and help determine appropriate placement of magnetically sensitive equipment. It can also help to reduce personal exposure to fields. Most users prefer a magnetic section which is frequency weighted, and calibrated at 60 Hz. However, a flat frequency response version (50 Hz to 500Hz) is also available for the AC magnetic section. This is the same price as the regular frequency-weighted version (which has sensitivity proportional to frequency from 50 Hz to 500Hz. In most homes and offices, a large fraction of the total magnetic field is at frequencies above 60 Hz.
The magnetic section consists of three ferrite-core coils pointing in the X, Y, and Z directions and located in the geometric center of the meter. Non-linear circuitry combines the signals of these three into a true magnitude of the field strength, independent of which direction the meter is pointed.
The radio/microwave section detects vertical electric fields parallel to the long axis of the meter. Range is 10V/m to 1 KV/m (0.026 mW/cm-2 to 260 mW/cm-2) and is frequency-flat from 100 KHz to 2.5 GHz. Accuracy is +/- 30%. It is used to detect ON-AIR status of transmitters (or to detect concealed transmitters), to check microwave ovens or other microwave equipment for leakage, and to look for RFI sources.
Radio and microwaves are composed of a particular combination of electric fields and magnetic fields that is self-sustaining. For frequencies below about 100 MHz (100million Hz) the principle effect on a conducting body is from the magnetic field part only. This is because the electric field component of radio waves produces much weaker currents in the body than does the magnetic field unless the wavelength of the waves is smaller than the height of the body. Low-frequency fields by themselves can be strong enough to create significant current, but only if they are from sources other than true radio waves.
The radio/microwave section has a small L-shaped antenna in the front. The signal is amplified and converted to a power density magnitude, calibrated at typical home microwave oven frequency (2 GHz).It reads 0 to 1 milliwatt/square centimeter. The resolution at the bottom of the range is 0.01 mW/cm 2, which is the Russian standard for maximum exposure, and is the most conservative standard of any country. In contrast, the US legal maximum is 1000 times higher, at 10 mW/cm2, but only brief exposure is allowed at this level. As mentioned, a true radio wave is a particular combination of electric and magnetic fields. A radio wave strength of 0.01 mW/cm2 has 0.006 KV/m and 0.2 milligauss, respectively, of electric and magnetic field (RMS averaged), while a strength of 1 mW/cm2 corresponds to 0.06 KV/m and 2 milligauss. Typical accuracy is within a factor of two. Variations are caused by reflections off the user's hand and body.
The Broadband Trifield® Meter comes with a one year warranty and a 9 volt transistor battery included. This type of battery lasts about 10 hours (total measurement time). When the BATTERY TEST reads low, the battery can be replaced with any rectangular 9 volt transistor or alkaline (which lasts about 50 hours) type. This meter is manufactured in the USA and comes with an instructional booklet. Very easy to use and a great all-around meter.
Also available in 50 cyle model for foreign use. When ordering from overseas, please specify either 60 cycle or 50 cycle.
