Part I: Microbusting
An offshoot of orgonomy, weather engineering offers both electrifying
experiences and burdens of responsibility for the cloudbuster operator.
Though theories as to how or why it works are abundant, research by such
notables as Trevor James Constable, James DeMeo, Robert McCullough, and,
of course, Wilhelm Reich) has unequivocably shown that methods employed
in cloudbusting do influence weather patterns. Further investigations
by backyard experimenters as myself only confirm this fact.

My own weather operations started in May of 1996 and ended in September
of 1997, and although seventeen months may seem insignificant to the years
of research conducted by others, the months were sufficient to allow an
assemblage of theories and protocols for the production of desired atmospheric
Traditional practices in cloudbusting centered around the concept
of orgone energy, claimed by its discoverer, Wilhelm Reich, to be
a negentropic life force affecting physical, biological, and psychological
systems depending on its charge density, rate of flow, and excitability.
The various forms of orgone, such as DOR (deadly orgone), and ORANUR (orgone
excited by radioactive energy), all have specific effects upon these systems,
which are described in the following chart:
||Negative ionic, affinity for water, negentropic, blue glow, life-positive,
alters alpha decay of radioactive material.
||Abiogenesis of bions, tingling warmth on skin, enhances healthy growth
of life, stimulates cilia movement.
||Free flow of emotions, sense of well being, vitality, rapidly discharges
||In dense concentrations accompanied by cumulous clouds and/or precipitation,
in low densities by aridity, adds clarity to blueness of sky.
||Positive ionic, signifies lack or stagnation of orgone, created by
TV's, microwaves, and other electromagnetic sources.
||Destimulates cilia, slows intake of oxygen, dehydrates the body, causes
||Creates fatigue, blocks emotional release, deppression.
||Black clouds without rain, desert-like arid stagnation of climate,
stagnant weather patterns, haze
||Densely positive ionic, orgone dangerously excited by alpha radiation
(as found in smoke detectors), decomposes minerals into brown melanor.
||Along with symptoms of radiation sickness, clears life-forms within
its field of effect.
||In buildings, creates an atmosphere of aggression, hysteria, claustrophobia,
||Shred-like decomposition of cloud edges, cobalt-blue sky.
All three forms of orgone have specific atmospheric effects due to
its intense affinity for water; strong concentrations of "good" orgone
are accompanied by water, and low densities by arridity. A cloud, for example,
is a pocket of dense orgone energy, but the surrounding blue sky contains
a lower concentration. According to classic cloudbuster theory, in order
for a cloud to "bust," its orgone content must be "drawn" away by some
It was by accident that such a means was found. Wilhelm Reich and
his associates observed that pipes pointed at a lake before them influenced
the shape of waves upon the water. Years later, Reich capitalized upon
this effect by relieving what was then known as the DOR Emergency, during
which the inhabitants of his laboratory in Rangeley, Maine, became victims
to "DOR sickness." He sought ways to rid the area of this deadly orgone
which had not only sickened his co-workers, but also caused the static
accumulation of dark, drought-like clouds in the skies above. What soon
evolved was a contraption composed of twelve copper pipes, each 1.5 - 2"
diameter and 10' long, whose bottom ends were connected in parallel to
BX electrical cables which were dropped in a well to siphon the DOR from
the sky toward the water within the well. After ridding the region of DOR,
the cloudbuster was found to be useful for either producing or preventing
rain in the region. For several years, Reich offered his services in preventing
forecasted rainstorms for special events such as parades and other special
events, as well as breaking several droughts beflicting the region.
The theory behind cloudbusting involved a monumental principle: orgone
flows from low potential to high. In practice, this meant that to draw
orgone from a cloud into a collection of pipes, the orgone potential of
the pipes had to be made higher than that of the cloud. This was the purpose
of grounding the pipes in water, prefferably running water. Since much
orgone was already present in the water contacting the pipes, much more
so than within the cloud, when the pipes were aimed at the center of the
cloud, the orgone by means of the above principle naturally flowed from
cloud to pipe and into the water to be flushed away.
Reich made an analogy between a lightning rods and cloudbusters:
both discharge orgone from the sky (lightning was believed to be a super-dense
bolt of electricity and orgone), except whereas a lightning rod does so
in the fraction of a second, the cloudbuster extends its influence over
tens of minutes -- an hour is the usual draw duration. Though lightning
rods channel much greater magnitudes of energy than cloudbusters, it is
not difficult to see why a cloudbuster produces a more apparent change
in shape of a cloud than lightning rods do. It is not the magnitude
of energy involved, but rather the rate of energy flow. With the
cloudbuster's slower rate of orgone siphoning, the chaotically evolving
cloud has a longer time to respond to the influence of a cloudbuster operator.
The rate of draw is dependent upon rate of water flow within the
pipe, number of pipes, and the skill at which the cloudbuster is operated.
The length-to-diameter ratio determines the range of influence of the cloudbuster;
the larger the ratio, the longer the range. Requirements of fast-running
water hint at the mechanism by which cloudbusters function. To fully understand
how metal tubes pointed at the sky can change it, one must realize that
orgone is both an ionic and conscious phenomena. The ionic
interactions occuring within the cloud at a molecular level explain, for
the most part, how and why cloudbusting is possible. As mentioned, orgone
bears characteristics uncannily similar to electrical phenomena, specifically
that of ionized air. Orgone and ionized air are compared as follows:
|Highly charged orgone accumulators placed in the dark are seen to
emit a blue glow.
||Objects ionized by high voltage electricity give off a blue corona.
|A healthy dose of orgone "freshens" the air, creates an energized
sense of well being.
||Negative ion generators also freshen the air, stimulate cilia movement
within air passages of subjects breathing negative ions -- leading to a
better filtration of dirty air and increased oxygen utilization within
|DOR causes thirst, fatigue, irritability, and blank stares among
||Positive ions (lack of negative ions) decrease cilia movement, leading
to throat irritations and thirst caused by lowered production of mucous
and resulting increase of foreign particulates entering the lung, and oxygen
utilization is lowered, also creating fatigue.
|Orgone is neutralized or absorbed by water.
||Static electricity is also neutralized of absorbed by water.
|Cloudbusters are like lightning rods, but draw orgone at a slower
||Lightning rods channel bolts of electricity, cloudbusters channel
|Orgone can alter the decay rate of radioactive materials.
|| Ions are known to affect radioactive decay.
Quite clearly, orgone not only resembles electricity, but
could actually be electricity with one exception: several behaviors
of orgone cannot be fully explained by the physics of ionization alone,
which leads to my hypothesis that the unnaccounted factor is of psychic
origin, in other words, it is a radionic/conscious factor.
First, however, let's analyze the ionic aspects of orgone before
we return to the radionic hypothesis in weather engineering. If we visualize
the interaction between a cloudbuster and its target as being not one of
orgone "drawn" into the pipe, but rather ions from the pipe being released
into the atmosphere toward that target, then the generation of the ions
and their resulting interaction with a cloud's water droplets can elegantly
One requirement when cloudbusting is fast running water, as mentioned
above. The simplest of this type is a copper pipe with a spray nozzled
hose inserted into its lower end, as shown in this diagram:
To allow full emersion of the pipe's end into water, a tub can be
More advanced and efficient configurations involve atomizing the
water into a fine mist before injecting them into the tube. A make-shift
version of this type utilizes a motorized air humidifier commonly found
at Wal-Mart for $15 during the winter season. A flexible, expandable hose
is connected from the humidifier to the pipe:
At the molecular level, neutral streams of water are atomized by
the nozzle or humidifier into small droplets light enough to be suspended
in air. These droplets, by a well known phenomena, are ionized; when water
is split into smaller globules, charge imbalances occur. Often, more negative
ions are produced than positive ones as in a rainstorm, where raindrops
splashing on the ground shoot off negatively charged droplets (in rare
instances, such raindrops have been seen to discharge sparks of electricity
upon contact with the ground). Within the cloudbuster's pipe, much of the
positive ions are grounded, creating in effect a filter mechanism by which
negatively ionized water droplets are produced and forced from the muzzle
of a cloudbuster. This explains why fast-running water is a recommendation:
the faster the water, the larger the spray, and the more ionized droplets
Ions leave the cloudbuster to dissipate into the atmosphere and interact
with an aimed target, the cloud. Precision to which these ions are capable
of being aimed shall be discussed below, for it is radionic fundamentals
that explain the precision. Contrary to expectations the ions do not simply
drift away like smoke from a pipe, but coherently reach their target in
a conical, if not beam-like projection. Once the ions reach a water droplet
in the cloud, the largely neutral droplet (which is really a collection
of negative droplets around a positive condensation nucleus, the total
charge being zero), is split into smaller negatively charged droplets now
small enough to be classified as water vapor, which is invisible
to the naked eye except for its filtering effect of the sun's rays causing
our sky's blue hue. A cloud can therefore be made to "disappear" when its
water droplets have been ionized by the cloudbuster's ions into invisible
water vapor. Conversely, a section of blue sky, occupied mostly by uniformly
charged positive water vapor ions, can be made to coalesce into visible
water droplets through neutralization by the interaction with the cloudbuster's
Because opposites attract and similars repel (Law of Attraction and
Repulsion of Charges), large water droplets can either be made to split
into two or more repelling water vapor molecules, or ionized water vapor
molecules can be neutralized and caused to coalesce into a cloud.
Therefore, to destroy a cloud, the cloudbuster is aimed at the cloud,
and the ions dissociate it:
This is in complete agreement with classic cloudbusting protocol.
Now that ions are known to be partially responsible for weather modifying
effects, one can see why waterless cloudbuster units are possible. Trevor
James Constable, whose work is detailed in the book Loom of the Future
(one I recommend you read for its philosophical insights and profuse number
of photographs), mentions waterless units called "blue-bellies", which
are in essence orgone accumulators wrapped around the lower half of PVC
pipe and bound with duct tape. For those who do not know what an "orgone
accumulator" is, visit the PORE webpage.
Orgone accumulators are composed of layers of organic and inorganic material,
most commonly cotton and steel wool in alternating layers. Such a configuration
of materials is said to become charged with orgone, and radiate the orgone
to objects near the accumulator. Any physics student can see that alternating
layers of metal and insulator forms a capacitor. By virtue of its porous
and fluffy texture, such accumulators gather electrical energy and emit
a constant field of charged air ions. The source of this charge is gravity,
known by Townsend Brown and George Hodowanec to produce self-charge on
a capacitor. When an accumulator is wrapped around a pipe, plastic or metal
as in the orgone "Volcano" model below,
the pipe will emit ions just as a regular cloudbuster, except without
the need for water.
This principle can thus be applied through a high voltage ion generator
inserted into the end of a metal or plastic pipe and aimed at the sky.
This method allows, in effect, a power-cloudbuster to be constructed which
needs only to be pointed, set, plugged in, and monitored.
However, a question arises as to how so few ions can impact the development
of thunderheads (cumulo-nimbus clouds hundreds of yards in height). The
answer to this question is easily apparent and stems from the same reason
why, under Chaos theory, the air currents generated by a butterfly flapping
its wings could eventually lead to the formation of a hurricane. Cloud
development, and weather, for that matter, is extremely chaotic and volatile
to the smallest factors. A cloudbuster's ion can act as a a crucial trigger
in causing millions of other water vapor molecules to coalesce in a chain
reaction, much like cloud seeding utilizing dry ice dropped from airplanes
into clouds also create a chain reaction.
Unlike the butterfly effect, however, where the trigger's effect
is chaotic, the effects of cloudbusting are controlled by radionic means
through the mind of the cloudbuster operator. This is an example of consciousness
affecting chaos. The more chaotic a system is, the more easily consciousness
can both saturate and influence it. A cloud, or the weather itself, is
quite chaotic. Just as a sculptor shapes a figure with his hands, so does
a cloudbuster operator shape a cloud with his mind into a state more conducive
to formation or dissipation, but not without the help of his tools, of
Cloudbusters are no different. Ions do, by evidence of their electrical
properties, interact with water droplets in clouds, but it is the consciousness
factor that tips the scale of the "butterfly effect" one way or the other,
towards a thunderhead with a straight column, or a curved one, for example.
Since the mind has a special connection to chaotic systems due to it being
intelligent and resultingly unpredictable, the cloudbuster operator's mind
can influence the otherwise unpredictable development of clouds without
a cloudbuster, but unless he were extremely competent in parapsychological
feats, his efforts would be in vain without the help of such a device.
It is only through the interface of mind and machine that the average person
can achieve the spectacular results of cloudbusting.
Orgone is thus a combination of mind and ion, whose effects range
from wholly ionic (blue corona) to entirely psychological (emotional armoring).
Neither pure orgonomy nor pure present day science can comprehensively
describe or explain the process of cloudbusting, but a combination of orgonomy,
radionics, and science can. Once again, it is consilience through which
truth is revealed.
