Sacré bleu! A vision from the Sixties in Stroud Green:
I've got an orgone accumulator
It makes me feel greater
I'll see you sometime later
When I'm through with my accumulator
It's no social integrator
It's a one man isolator
It's a back brain stimulator
It's a cerebral vibrator...
But an Orgone Accumulator
Is a superman creator...
You can even build one yourself.
An orgone accumulator (ORAC) was a box developed by Wilhelm Reich to trap and then radiate his magical orgone energy into a concentrated area. Reich constructed the box so that it had organic material lining the outside of its walls and metallic material lining the insides of its walls. To Reich orgone energy would be drawn into the organic material on the outside of the box but then be radiated into the box by the metallic inner lining. Over time this orgone energy would "accumulate" in the interior of the box....
Orgone accumulators were proposed to cure everything from mental disease to cancer. It is the ultimate mix of woo and pseudoscience.
