So a lot of his talk of vortices and resonance and golden section and tuning and all that radionics-derived patter is misdirection. I know this because I was the first to do such a thing in 1971, in Australia, and I told him about it a few months later. So when some years after that, he started to announce his ´´new, improved´´ models of cloudbuster, I recognized my own scam when I saw it.
And later, when he published a note of thanks to several people who had helped him, I contacted one of them, an old farmer near Bakersfield, and asked him what exactly had he done to help Trevor? And he told me his job was to stick some lengths of irrigation pipe in a barrel of water with a hose running into it and point them in the direction Trevor told him to when Trevor phoned and said to.
So Trevor was still using an old-style water-grounded cloudbuster, as invented by Reich and putting on a stage-magic act with a decoy stage prop while the real operation was being done by an unwitting accomplice out of sight of the audience. I used to do a stage-magic act myself and was not surprised. It is a rather common tactic in stage magic.
Constable does know how to get the results he wants with a
cloudbuster, and some of his discoveries of new techniques of using
the cloudbuster are valid and significant. When it comes to using
the cloudbuster effectively and reliably, he is very competent.
My cautionary note was about his intentional misleading of his
readers for commercial motives. His claims to have invented new and
more effective equipment are a smokescreen designed to discourage
potential customers from trying to do the work themselves instead of
paying him to do it. His alleged new devices are decoys that have no
connection to the effects which are seen at his demonstrations and
which are produced by cloudbusters of Reichs' original design
located elsewhere in the vicinity.
He once had a contract with the Malaysian state of
Malaca to fill a newly-dug reservoir, for which he was supposed to
be paid $1.5,000,000 if successful. He was successful, alright; he
caused a series of disasterous storms which knocked over all his own
equipment and did several million dollars worth of property damage,
causing him to leave the country without waiting to collect his pay.
I suppose from a strictly scientific standpoint, the operation was a
great success, even if it was a commercial failure. Constable had
had a similar experience years earlier in Utah, where the
Cattlemen`s Association offered to pay for rain, then reneged when
the resulting rain was so much as to cause severe flood damage, for
which they feared liability if they paid him.
If he has ever actually made money from his cloudbusting, I am not
aware of it, and if anyone knows, I would appreciate details, please.
As for doing good in the process, many of his well-documented
operations have resulted in numerous deaths. One of his research
reports, documented with the next-days news headlines, announcing "9-
year-old boy swept out to sea by sudden unexpected storm". Another
operation, conducted as a demonstration for Dr. Richard Blasband,
then of the American College of Orgonomy, which was funding
Constable at the time, was documented by the headline "Storm hikes
state death toll to 67 on rain-slicked roads". Constable had no
hesitation in including those headlines in his reports.
On the other hand, he has made some real and important discoveries,
such as his discovery of how to use a cloudbuster to direct a
lightning strike at a target. He demonstrated this to a crowd of 50
people in the desert near Indio one night. Many of the witnesses
were famous Hollywood stars. Mary Poe, his assistant at the time,
says that when they had a big fight a few days later and she quit,
there was a tremendous unforecast thunderstorm that night and
several lightning bolts struck near her home and none anyplace else.
Yes, Constable has a lot of ability and knowledge, and is
certainly far more competent than many others in the field, but I
think that in the case of something like cloudbusting, it is
necessary to take other factors into account.
Cloudbusting CAN be used to control weather, but it should not be
used for that purpose. Weather control is malpractice. The proper
role of a cloudbuster is to heal a sick atmosphere and restore
normal pulstation, so the weather will return to normal patterns.
Anyone who uses the term "weather control" or "weather engineering" does not understand
either cloudbusting or the orgonomic functioning of the atmosphere,
regardless of how technically competent he may be.
And such a person is a dangerous model to hold up to newcomers in
