(The following is no more than a functional workshop arrangement.)

Any attempt at an orgonomic theory of gravitation must proceed from functional and not mechanical principles. It will, first, have to abandon the absolute, eternal view of gravitation and replace it by the genetic view, according to which the basic natural laws themselves are being created and perish again as do all other natural functions. According to this view, the gravitation of inert masses toward each other must have arisen with the creation of mass from mass-free primal cosmic energy. It will, second, dispose of the mechanical gravitation of classical physics, not by mathematical abstractions, but by the closest possible observation of actual gravitational functions.

It is astonishing to witness the emergence of new insights from changes in theoretical principles. The functional principle of superimposition readily applies to the function of gravitation in the following manner:

The appearance of freely falling bodies misleads the observer into believing that an apple, for instance, falls vertically toward the center of the earth. This is true only with reference to the relationship: earth—apple. However, if we replace this immediate relationship of two variants by the common functioning principle (CFP) of both earth and apple, the orgone energy flow, we see that the apple actually does not fall vertically, and, furthermore, that it never reaches the center of the earth and never will, even if the substance of the earth would permit penetration toward the center. This is demonstrated by the behavior of the moon with respect to the earth. According to Newton, the moon appears to be falling like an apple toward the center of the earth. And the mathematical calculations corroborate this statement. Yet the moon never even reaches the surface of the earth. Thus, a gap exists between theory and appearance. The introduction of a centrifugal force that balances the centripetal falling does not abolish this gap. It only complicates it by introducing a new unknown.

Let us follow the movements of both the moon and the earth with respect to their CFP, the flow of the cosmic orgone ocean. We are then in a position to integrate the appearance with the theory of mass gravitation.

The drawing (cf. fig. 49) demonstrates the factual interrelationship. Both moon and earth spin along in space, with their respective open (not closed) pathways mutually approaching and separating again. Therefore, it is not the gravitational masses, but the pathways of the gravitational masses, which meet.

The moon does not “circle around the earth,” since the lines of movements are open, spiraling curves. The moon does not reach the center of the earth. But it reaches actually a point in space where the center of the earth has been or will be sooner or later.

The cosmic orgone energy flow that carries both moon and earth along in the same direction, in the same plane, and in perfect coordination of their speeds, is the true agent of the gravitational free fall. It is with reference to the functional CFP of both earth and moon, the orgone energy stream, that otherwise contradictory statements about gravitation of heavenly bodies are proven to be true:

  1. The moon actually falls toward the center of the earth. But it is also true that the actual material center of the earth is no longer present where, at that specific moment, the center of the moon passes through on its run “around” the earth.
  2. It is apparently true that there is a “pull” exerted by the earth upon falling bodies. But functionally, it is not due to a pull by the inert mass of the earth—which could never be demonstrated; it is due to the primordial converging movement of two orgone energy streams. This has been demonstrated in connection with the formation of galaxies. Gravitation as a function of converging streams of primordial energy is strongly suggested by the basic natural function of SUPERIMPOSITION of two orgonotic streams. Thus, it is again the CFP, the cosmic orgone energy stream, that accounts for the “gravitational pull.”
  1. It is also true that the actual falling of the moon toward the center of the earth is counteracted by an equal force acting in an opposite direction, resulting in an apparently circular motion around the earth’s center. The moon never reaches the actual center of the earth, but it reaches the virtual center or, in other words, the point in space where the center of the earth had been a short while ago or will be a short while later.

It is fascinating to study these functions of nature as they are reflected in the searching mind of man, being true and untrue at the same time, depending on the point of view applied in the particular case.

To summarize:

The function of gravitation is real. It is, however, not the result of mass attraction but of the converging movements of two orgone energy streams. From these converging streams the “attracting ” and “gravitational” masses once emerged and they are still carried along in the universe by the same streams in an integrated, unitary fashion as expressed in their common direction of movement, their common plane of motion, the mutual approach of their centers, and the mutually coordinated speed of their spinning motion (cf. fig. 50).

This seems to provide a solid framework for workshop activities for the future detailed elaboration and numerical definition of the planetary movements. The hypothesis of gravitation as a function of the superimposition of orgone energy streams is well deserving of close attention, paired with utmost caution and strict factual scrutiny of its realities.
