February Observations in the Atmosphere
The month of February 2012 in Cyprus, our small island country in the
Eastern Mediterranean, proved to be very fruitful and beneficent from a
conventional point of view and fascinating from the Orgonomic point of view.
I grew up in the nineteen sixties. During those years of my childhood I
learned a lot about the weather from our elders; society was still
closely knit at the time, and there was a lot of knowledge that was
"collectively owned" by the community (the knowledge existed "in the
public domain" we would say today). It was passed along among people and
specifically from one generation to the next. There were several
overlapping cycles that included direct observation of nature, direct
exchanges among people, learning, teaching, interacting and circulating
feedback and direct experiencing that confirmed and sustained this
knowledge. It was unmediated - there were no Corporate or State media to
distort or shape this body of knowledge during that period.
During my childhood years there were a few incidents of dust that
appeared in the atmosphere in Spring, stuck to humidity and forming a
dense kind of fog. It would last between a half day and two days, at the
most. The elders said that it was a natural phenomenon that occurred
once or twice every three to five years. And indeed, that's how frequent
The elders also said that *their* elders had passed along the knowledge
that this dust was suspected to come from the Sahara, but that "only God
knows, really" the source of this weird thing. Within one generation,
through the expansion of regional and global meteorological knowledge,
airplane observations and satellite photography, this suspicion of the
elders was confirmed.
This rare appearance of Saharan dust used to clear up completely either
by subtle winds or light rain; sometimes - very rarely - it triggered a
heavy rain that washed out the atmosphere. Sometimes, and I remember
this vividly, the dust was rusty and the rain was a horrific blood red
that ran along the streets in rivers. It looked like violent rivers of
blood. Biblical associations with the Plagues of the Pharaoh were
Always after this kind of atmospheric response to the dust, a bright dry
blue clear sky would ensue, and the joyous feeling of Spring would
return to animals and people.
As I grew up, this phenomenon changed. There was nothing in the stories
of the elders to match it. The dust started coming later in the year,
during the transition from cold to hot weather. Sometimes it would
appear in late Spring, and even in the Summer. Atmospheric response was
more violent, with fast winds and occasional thunder and lightning
storms bringing torrential rains.
The duration of the effect became longer as well. It extended from to
two to four days sometimes.
In the decade of the nineties and then in the first decade of the new
century, things got worse. The dust would come more frequently and be
suspended in the air for a longer time, and atmospheric response would
vary from nothing to mild to inefficiently weak. Dust would appear every
two to three years at first, then every year, and then several times
every year, usually toward the transition from cold to hot humid weather.
It would stick to the already polluted city air and to the humid air,
unmoving, block the Sun, choke up the air and cause stagnated breathing
to all living beings. Plants, animals and people got sick, and the
duration of the event might last up to a week; sometimes ten days.
Slight winds might clear it a little, but the sky would not clear well;
there would always remain a leftover dullness to the atmosphere, a
diffuse haze that rarely left. In this last decade, even if a rare rain
would erupt in association with the dust, it was not enough to clear up
the sky and the stagnation would resume within one or two days.
A large number of factors may have contributed to reducing the local
atmosphere's ability to self-regulate, and these are local, regional and
o- Polluted air in the cities from cars and in the countryside from
irresponsible agricultural practices and open surface mining of the
earth; the stationing of nuclear weapons on the island; extensive
deforestation due to war (burning down of forests and failure to restore
them) plus "development" that has reduced cultivated lands and increased
built up areas extensively; the construction of several large dams
creating stagnant Orgone and air zones above and to their east; expanded
pollution in Europe and some in Northern Africa; and the global climate
change that has affected everything.
o- I would add some factors that I'm not sure of, like the long term
cloudbusting project we've learned of that took place in Algeria by
well-intentioned but probably misguided volunteers there, which must
have set up a blockage to the southeastern natural flow of Orgone toward
Cyprus, somehow contributing to larger amounts of dust to come our way,
but lessening the atmospheric Orgone flow that enabled our skies to be
self-regulating in the past.
o- Also, the extensive US bombing of Iraq with radioactive uranium
weapons, in addition to ruining the local natural and human environment
and causing confirmed multiplication of cancers and respiratory illness
in Iraq, has set up a blockage of the natural stream atmospheric Orgone
and air in the area. I don't know the extent to which this might be
causing a backed up accumulation to the West of it, where Cyprus is
By the years 2006 and onwards, increased numbers of people were
reportedly dying of heart attacks, asthma and other respiratory distress
related illnesses, both at home and work and in the hospitals during the
Saharan dust incidents. Cortisone and bronchio-dilator inhalants became
the new medical fad, and a whole new generation of children became
diagnosed with chronic bronchiolitis, bronchitis and asthma, and lived
almost year-round on these deadly medicines.
In the Summer of year 2010, during a stagnated Saharan dust incident
that lasted about ten days a group of us did an atmospheric intervention
for a few hours that brought a very light rain and atmospheric relief
that lasted all season.
In the year 2011 we witnessed a few dust incidents, but less in number,
and less severe in persistence than in previous years.
November of 2011 was a phenomenal month. Almost during the entire month
we had bright sunny clear skies with a delicious Orgone blue reigning
over good moods in all, light breezes... and a delayed Winter.
While the quality of the sky in November was very reminiscent of the
clarity and lightness of my childhood year, signaling a return to
natural processes, the delayed Winter was not so natural. Winter was
delayed in all of Europe, causing a lot of environmental damage,
including deaths of hibernating bears and reptiles due to food shortages
and other effects on crops, vegetation, insects, etc.
Finally Winter came... with a vengeance. It's been one of the worst
Winters in our history. Many hundreds of people died in Europe and
Western Asia from cold and other weather-related factors. In Cyprus,
this Winter was one of our coldest ever, and on the last day of February
it snowed for hours in Lefkosia~Nicosia, the capital - an unheard of
During February there were four incidents of Saharan dust. What is
remarkable about them is the swiftness and efficiency of the local
atmosphere's response. Two of the incidents were cleared up within half
a day with light wind and light rain. Another one lasted a whole day,
and was cleared up by a rainstorm. A fourth one lasted two days, during
which there was constant reaction by the atmosphere from the beginning
of the event and succeeded in clearing it with winds, rain, and a
I marveled at our atmosphere's ability to react so healthily, quickly,
Trying to understand this glorious resurgence of a self-regulating
atmosphere in Cyprus, I'm stuck with either not enough explanations, or
with too much theorizing that may be unfounded. Nevertheless, I feel
it's useful to explore these ideas.
I don't think that the small intervention we did in 2010 is enough to
account for this atmospheric restoration. I'm aware of course that
cloudbusting has influences over large distances both in space and time,
but I can't see that particular action as being so powerful; it was
mild, short, and the effects that I could measure may have lasted only
for a few months, perhaps a year at a maximum. (Unless there are other
parameters that I'm not aware of.)
One factor that I think needs to be taken into consideration is that the
atmosphere is reacting on a global scale, and we don't usually think of
this as an active factor. Often in meteorology and in medicine cause and
effect are mixed up, misunderstood, or to put it differently,
conventional science (or linear, armoured thinking) has a hard time
separating them. For example, a fever is an organism's natural response
to an illness, but conventional medicine sees it as a primary part of
the illness. Same as in weather science: more violent storms, more
intense winters, are healthy atmospheric responses to an environmental
illness. Even global warming itself might be seen that way; it's a
natural response to unnatural conditions, or to shifted balances.
We're in a period of activated global atmospheric reactions to various
offences (radioactive and chemical pollution; large scale deforestation;
poisoning of the seas; environmental catastrophes of many levels and
types). To whatever degree the atmosphere is successful in restoring
balance on a global scale, we see some of that ability to
self-regulation trickling down to regional and local levels. I think
that our local atmosphere in Cyprus may have benefitted from this global
The most energetic responses seen in our region in recent years are the
European harsh Winters that seem to be intensifying each year. One
factor that I think is mostly ignored, that may have triggered
atmospheric responses in Europe is the US/NATO bombing of Yugoslavia
with radioactive uranium weapons during two wars in the nineteen
nineties that have poisoned the river Danube, surface and underground
waters, air, plant and animal life in all the Balkans. Atmospheric
reaction to this widespread radiation inevitably triggers the formation
of Deadly Orgone (DOR) and subsequent violent atmospheric responses in
nature - all this was shown in various carefully designed experiments
both in the lab and in the field by Wilhelm Reich. It would be gross
negligence for Orgonomists to ignore these events as being part of the
last few decades' weather and climate shifts.
These same factors have been at work in Iraq, the Balkans, and New
Mexico (where the radioactive uranium weapons were first tested out in
open spaces). And also during the emergencies triggered by the
radioactive accidents at Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima.
Also, we've been informed (though not adequately), that the cloudbusting
in Algeria has recently been changed to a (perhaps permanent?) vertical
draw, which probably has less regional impact, freeing up the flow of
Orgone toward Cyprus, enabling better responses to the dust from the Sahara.
Other factors are the increased temperature differences, which enable
more violent meteorological events, which in turn release more energy
that's trapped in previously stagnant conditions. These releases come in
the form of thunder and lightning, intense rain, hail, violent winds.
And there may be factors we do not know, and may never come to know. For
example, I'm aware that Mossad, the Israeli covert intelligence
operations agency, has been involved for decades in cloudbusting
operations. But I don't know the extent to which they may be engaged in
regional, local or even global operations that affect our weather here.
And probably we'll never find out. Also, we don't know if their
operations are guided by any genuine knowledge of Orgonomy (which I
doubt), or if they are shaped by the same crude, callous and barbaric
way in which they treat the Palestinian people as part of their
genocidal ethnic cleansing operations, aimed in this case at subjugation
and enslavement of the atmosphere.
To all this, controversial enough as the Orgonomic point of view is
already, I must add another controversial element. It's that of mass
psychology. Within Orgonomy we usually accept the observation that a
stagnant atmosphere often corresponds to a psychologically or culturally
stagnant population. Usually we see this in the sense of cause and
effect; we say that a sick atmosphere creates a sick population.
But we don't often think of the reverse, i.e. of the effect that an
awakened, activated, joyous and energized population may have on the
atmosphere. In Old World history and in Native American oral traditions,
we find descriptions of events where large numbers of people congregated
in passionate states, or in states of altered consciousness or in
ecstatic states, have triggered dramatic changes in weather (I have
witnessed some of those events myself). Same as with events of large
scale slaughters, battles, or incidents with intense impact on mass
psychology: the history and the traditional lore of most of the world's
peoples record that such events sometimes have effects on the weather.
Along that line of thinking I must point out that in the year 2011 we
witnessed large mobilizations of the public in three large areas: in the
Middle East with what became known as the Arab Spring; in Europe, with
the movement of the Enraged; and in the US, with the Occupy movement.
I'm aware that images of the uprisings conveyed through the media are
mostly those of violent strife, anger and conflict (after all, the media
will utilize sensationalist images to further its own agenda for profits
and propaganda), but the truth of all these mobilizations is a lot more
joy, awareness, expanded consciousness, togetherness, solidarity,
bonding, and tangible love than we find anywhere within conventional
society's everyday events of business-as-usual.
For example the outbreak of Feminism and of more empowered roles for
women that colourised the mobilizations in Egypt, or the Direct
Democracy formations that developed in the streets and plazas of Europe
show that there's an active component of spontaneous Work Democracy, of
Orgonomic restoration taking place or erupting from below in these
societies and finding fertile soil in the community at large. This
fertile soil is a newly rediscovered sense of community, a new
appreciation for human bonds, an awareness of how precious the human and
natural environment is.
We had our own version of these mass mobilization events in Cyprus as
well, which combined some elements of all the movements mentioned above.
They were the largest spontaneous mobilizations in about a hundred
years. We may not have succeeded in creating paradise on earth, but it's
true that our mobilizations over the Summer of 2011 brought out into the
streets more communal solidarity, more passion for our fellow human
beings, more a sense of community bonding, volunteer spirit, compassion,
awareness, joy, humour, a population electrified to being more alive and
awakened than in many decades... and all of this may also be impacting
the atmosphere's responsiveness.
All in all, there's no visible guarantee that the atmospheric
self-regulation we witnessed restored in Cyprus this February will
continue. Especially as the weather shifts toward the warm and hot
seasons, we might discover new obstacles, or that the impact of some
environmental distortions has never subsided.
But for now, the prospects look good.
Wishing bright deep blue Orgone skies to all,

And My Response:
Thank you, Petros, for a very helpful contribution. I think you brought out several very important points and your descriptions of the atmosphere are very insightful.
