Director of the Biophysical Research Laboratory is Nassos Teopoulos M.D.
At the moment, the Biophysical Research Laboratory (BRL) is equipped with certain instruments necessary for the reproduction of a number of experiments done by Reich, in order to prove the existence of orgone and study its functions. To our opinion, the confirmation of Reich’s findings in repeated experimental measurements has priority over any theoretical interpretation of his experimental results.
As a start, the following two experiments were chosen for reproduction:
1) Recording of the temperature difference between an experimental orgone accumulator with four layers and several control boxes of same outside dimensions and same thickness of walls. Control boxes were as follows: a) from wood and glasswool; b) from metal and steelwool; c) from successive layers of organic and metallic material, like the regular orgone accumulator but with reverse arrangement, that is metal layer on the outside and organic on the inside (reverse accumulator).
2) Recording of different rates of discharge in homogenous and solid metal spheres, charged with positive and negative charge, and inside the same experimental orgone accumulator and control boxes as described in the previous experiment.
To conduct these experiments BRL was equipped with the following instruments:
- 5 electronic sensors (Weather sensor, PASCO, PS-2154); they can record simultaneously temperature, relative and absolute humidity, dew point, relative altitude and barometric (atmospheric) pressure. As regards to temperature, the manufacturer cites that the range of measurement is from -20οC to +55οC ±0,5οC and its resolution is around 0,1οC or better.
- 8 electronic sensors for electrostatic charge and potential (Charge Sensor, PASCO, PS-2132).
- 5 gold leaf electroscopes (Gold Leaf Electroscope, UNITED, Cat. # ELGL01, ELFL01).
- 4 three-sensor ports for collecting data from up to three sensors simultaneously. (Power Link, PASCO, PS-2001).
- 1 Kit of classic electrostatic materials; 3 rods (acrylic, glass, PVC) two insulated pivot stands, three rubbing cloths (wool, silk,fur) (Electrostatic Materials Kit, PASCO, SF-9068).
- 1 electrostatic voltage source for positive charge (30, 1000, 2000 & 3000 VDC±10%) (Electrostatic Voltage Source, PASCO, ES-9077).
The Biophysical Research Laboratory’s project regarding the electrodynamic behavior of its experimental accumulator, was equipped with the following instruments:
- One electronic digital oscilloscope (2-channel Digital Storage Oscilloscope Tectronix TDS2022B).
- 2 Air Ion Counters, purchased from Alphalab).
- 1 analog to digital converter for connecting the Air Ion Counters to a computer and constant recording of their measurements.
- 1 Tesla Coil, purchased from Science First, 10-205.
- 1 adjustable voltage generator up to 250 VAC (Hossoni Voltage Regularot, TDGC2-1 kVA, capacity max 4A).
- 1 Photometer (Digital Lux Meter, LX-101) to check the lumination produced during the excitation of orgone energy.
Our laboratory also has a counter/detector of electromagnetic fields (TriField Broadband Meter) to check the suitability of our experimental environment and other secondary equipment and instruments necessary for setting up connections and experimental circuits (multi-meter, resistances and capacitors of various values, as well as a whole series of experimental fluorescent bulbs and vacuum tubes).
