Some people have suggested the use of radar to track the effects of cloudbusting. Some have even published videos of cloudbusting operations documented by radar images to illustrate what is happening.
This no doubt sounds to them like a "scientific" idea, and they think radar would give more exact information on what is happening in the sky than just looking at the sky and estimating what is happening. Unfortunately, like so much else that modern science has to offer, radar is not useful for keeping track of the effects of cloudbusting.
The waves sent out by a radar transmiter are reflected back by the raindrops and tell to a very close aproximation what is happening inside a cloud, how much rain is falling, and other facts of importance to a meteorologist. But cloudbusting is not meterology and by the time a cloud has formed or raindrops are falling, or there is anything else that can be seen on radar, it is already way past the time when it would do a cloudbuster operator any good to have that information.
The changes in the orgone continuum that will eventually end in rain take place far in advance, sometimes up to several days, before there is anything that could be detected by radar. The cloudbuster operator must know a day or even sometimes, two days in advance, if there is going to be rain in response to his operations or not.
He must learn to read the signs of the changes in the orgone field of the atmosphere, including the way his own body feels, the behavior of animals, the appearence of plants, the look of the clouds, the slight differences of color and light intensity in the sky, and other biological factors, and from them deduce if his operations have been a success already or if he should keep working.
This problem applies also to other mechanistic methods of monitoring weather. No measurement of temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, electrical potential shifts, or anything else that can be detected by instruments is worth much in telling you what your cloudbuster is accomplishing because none of these parameters is altered by cloudbusting right away. They all take time to happen and do not happen until after the operation has been concluded and the cloudbuster is back in the barn.
It will no doubt sound terribly unscientific and imprecise to people of a scientific bent who would like to have actual objective measurements and readings to guide them in knowing what to do while cloudbusting, but so far, there is no instrument that can tell you much that is of use. The trained human senses are still the best source of data on what the orgone field of the atmosphere is doing and what effect your cloudbuster is having.
There is one known exception to this rule. That is the use of electrodes embeded in the bark of a living tree, with a volt meter then being used to detrect the changes in potential between them. The tree responds almost instantly to an action by a cloudbuster, even at a great distance. This biological reaction to cloudbusting is much more revealing and much more significant than anything that a non-biological system can detect.
So if anyone suggests "modernizing" cloudbusting by "taking advantage of developments in science since Reich", that person is showing that he does not really understand what it is that a cloudbuster does. A cloudbuster does NOT "change the weather". What it does is, it changes the orgone envelope of the earth, and THAT changes the weather.
And since it also changes the physiological functioning of every living organism within the area affected, the operator had better know what he is doing. Because he is practicing medicine, regardless of if he knows it or not.
