Johan's Free Energy Charger Trips up the Weather? -
This reminded Mr. Alan of the similar claims by David Wells, the founder of a cult of weather control fanatics called the Weather Rangers, who fantasize that they can become superheroes, saving innocent people from bad weather.
Mr. Alan is right: the phenomenon is the same. But it has nothing to do with weather control. What it has to do with is weather DESTRUCTION. And it is nothing new. It has been well-known and frequently described in publications on orgone energy for over 60 years. Anyone familiar with the writings of Wilhelm Reich from the 1950s would immediately recognize what was happening.
Any strong electromagnetic field will disrupt the weather. Effects have been noted from high-tension powerlines, radar, microwave, radio, and TV installations, and large transformers. So it is not a surprise that some of the same type of effects are sometimes seen by inventors monkeying around with electrical devices of their own design.
The most frequently described effect is the destruction of small clouds. That is what is usually seen first and gives the crackpot inventor the impression he has found a way to "control" weather. It is a symptom of the authoritarian personality that this is so often seen as a method of "control", not for what it really is, a disruption of a naturally functioning system.
The control-freak will then go on to fantasize that he can do other things, such as create clouds and storm systems. Usually that is only a fantasy, but sometimes there can be other side-effects of his running his gadget for too long a time. These can sometimes include induced rainfall, which results from over-exciting the atmosphere until it reaches a limit and contracts suddenly and sharply. The contraction will sometimes cause rain, furthering the control freaks' impression that he is "in control" and that his device "caused" the rain.
If the operation of the device goes on long enough, there can also be a build-up of excitation in the neigborhood to a point that distant storms are attracted to the area, further creating the illusion of being "in control" and able to "attract storms".
Missing from this control-freak thinking is any clear understanding of what the atmosphere is and how it normally functions. Instead, the crackpot inventor, usually someone with little or no scientific education, dreams up his own "theory" of how the atmosphere works and what his invention is doing to cause these results.
Such "theories", invented ad hoc by people with no understanding of how the atmosphere really functions, are of no importance. The real reasons for the effects observed are well-understood in orgonomic circles, though seldom mentioned elswhere.
The atmosphere is not just a hap-hazard collection of inanimate gases, driven by differences in temperature, with raindrops condensing by happenstance around particles of dust. It is a finely-balanced system of integrated components that function according to a pattern. It has a structure and every portion of that structure has a role to play in the final effect. Disrupting the functioning of the atmosphere by any means is an attack on the lives of all living things within the range of the apparatus.
And that disruption is not "control". It is destruction. The destruction of the natural weather of the region, upon which all life depends. Including that of the "inventor" who deludes himself into thinking that he is somehow now in "control". Building and promoting a device that disrupts the functioning of the atmosphere is on a par with building a device to remove oxygen from the atmosphere. It might be possible to do it, but only a criminally insane person would try.
The problem here is not only the existence of such devices. It is even more a problem of the mind-set that sees this kind of attack on the atmosphere as a form of"control" instead of recognizing it for what it really is: an attack. The crackpot inventor is incapable of understanding that what he thinks is a great invention allowing him to "control" the weather is really a weapon that he is using to interfere with the functioning of the atmosphere, and if his work goes on long enough, ultimately, to destroy it.
