"Improving" The Cloudbuster
By Joel Carlinsky
I have often stated that the cloudbuster is a finished product. That it can never be improved. There is no possible way to make a better cloudbuster than the one Reich invented. This is a highly controversial statement in some quarters. There are some people who want to think there are no limits to human ingenuity and inventiveness, and that the future will inevitably mirror the recent past in the boundless development of new technologies until the entire universe is under perfect human control.
This is what the ancient Greeks called "Hubris", the folly of placing oneself on the level of the gods. And the inventors and their groupies who expect more and more technology to save them from the problems caused by technology are sadly deluded. The cloudbuster is a case in point. It acts as a conduit to conduct orgone energy from the sky to the ground, just as a lightning rod does, but in slow motion. The physics of the orgone, flowing through a conduit to the water that attracts it, determines the materials and form of the conduit and the hollow tubes grounded into water is the expression of the laws of orgone physics.
Some people wrongly think the orgone theory was thought up to explain how the cloudbuster works. It was actually the other way around. The cloudbuster was not stumbled across by accident. It was the predictable and predicted result of the understanding of the orgone energy that had been discovered in 1939 and studied carefully ever since until the observations led to the design of the first cloudbuster in 1952.
Trevor Constable, now retired, spent over 40 years in an unsuuccessful effort to market cloudbusting services commercially. He tried on many occassions to claim he had invented "new, improved" models of the cloudbuster and the older, original model, as invented by Reich, was now obsolete. This was mostly just commercially-motivated hype, in some cases even including public cloudbusting shows using a dummy stage prop of his "new, improved" equipment while an unseen assistant nearby was doing the actual work using the original type of equipment.
Constable did try to introduce several inovations into cloudbusting, none of which have any scientific basis. They include the dubious notion of "tunning" a cloudbuster, a concept derived from his employment as a shipboard radio operator, and not applicable to cloudbusting.
He also used a pendulum to tell if the "ratio" of length to diameter of his cloudbuster tubes was correct according to the theory of "radionics". Both radionic theory and the practicality of using a pendulm as a source of scientific data are highly questionable, to say the least. A pendulum is a means of making conscious information you already had, but could not access, and can only provide answers if you already know them.
The bogus pseudoscience of "radionics" machines refers to a class of devices which are really nothing but stage props, but are usually presented along with a scientific-sounding rationale about "frequencies", "waves", and "energies" that are intended to convince scientifically unsophisticated purchasers that they operate on scientific principles.
Radionics devices are another means, like the pendulum, of accessing abilities one has, but is normally unable to employ. These machines seem to work because they enable the operator to by-pass the repression of these abilities that is built into people raised in this culture in childhood by the disbelief and disaproval of their culture toward such abilities. By making it look as if the machine, not the operator, is doing the operation, it becomes more acceptable to the person raised in a mechanistic culture that represses such bioenergetic abilities and accepts the idea that machines can do almost anything.
The real operative factor in such cases is the bioenergy field of the person using the machine, which is able, as long as he thinks it is the machine, and does not realize he is doing it himself, to influence the energy field of the local atmosphere to a certain extent. This biological ability is the same that is involved in such more traditional methods as tribal rainmaking ceremonies, psychic weather control, etc. practiced by tradtional cultures all over the world.
The radionics machine is only a more modern-looking method to do what these traditional cultures do by the older traditional means, and is more convincing to a person raised in a modern, machine-oriented culture. It gives permission, so to speak, to utilize such latent and repressed culturally frowned upon abilities that the individual would otherwise find unacceptable.
Compared to the cloudbuster, such bioenergetic influence on the atmosphere is very localized, lacking the widespread effect of the cloudbuster, but is usually much more tightly targeted on the desired area and more precise in obtaining the desired effects, with far less potential to cause catastrophic damage.
Constable often incorporated the usual scientific-sounding double-talk concepts from radionics into his sales pitch, though how much of this line of stage-magician's patter he himself believed is an open question.
His devices also include some that impart motion to orgone accumulating devices of various supposedly relevant shapes and proportions, and these do have an effect, although the geometric shapes and the exact proportions and ratios of the small accumulating containers do not matter. The motion of an accumulator through the orgone field of the earth excites the surrounding atmospheric energy field into a state of greater expansion, and in cases where there is a drought going on and the atmosphere is already in a chronic expanded state, it can-- sometimes-- add enough extra expansion to make it reach the limit of it's capacity and contract suddenly, and that contraction causes rain.
So operating such a device can result in rain falling, but that is not a satisfactory solution to a drought. A drought does not consist of a lack of rain. It consists in the first instance of a build-up of DOR, which has several effects, one of which is a lack of rain. It can and often does, rain in the middle of a drought. After the rain, unless the DOR that was inhibiting rain has been removed, the drought will resume.
This is not good from a standpoint of the health and long-term functioning of the atmosphere. The goal of cloudbusting is, or at least should be, to remove DOR, which is an inhibiting factor, so the atmosphere can return to a normal rate of alternating expansion and contaction, in which the contraction phase of the cycle produces rain. This spontaneous pulsation is what is meant by the term, "self-regulation".
The process of FORCING a contraction by adding extra excitation to cause even more expansion to an already expanded atmosphere until it collapses into a contraction is the equivalent of beating a sick horse to make it run. It may work, but only up to the point when the horse dies from the maltreatment.
And, just as such maltreatment is harmful to an animal, it is also harmful to the atmosphere. Each time the process of inducing a forced contraction is repeated, the atmosphere is damaged and it becomes harder and harder to get rain the next time. Eventually, the injured atmosphere will stop responding to the stimulus entirely. In that case, the area will become stuck in a chronic drought condition that will prove very hard to cure, even by proper and well-conducted cloudbusting methods.
Of course, from the point of view of Constable and any other would-be commercializer of "weather control services", that is a good thing, at least in the short term, since it means repeat business, at least until the atmosphere in the area is exhausted and stops responding to the excitation, and it is time to move on to the next customer.
