Now, what is life energy?
It is obvious by now that life energy (chi energy, orgone energy) is an energy that is universally present. Its main characteristic is dynamic flow and pulse: it is movement. In this respect, there is similarity with the electro-magnetic energy.
For the accumulation of life energy, certain materials proved to be very effective. When re- discovering life energy for science more than 200 years ago, Franz Anton Mesmer called it animal magnetism ("personal magnetism" is the word used in our days), because he was well aware of a connection between life energy and magnetism. Based on his hands-on knowledge, he built the first accumulators of life energy of which we know: Oak barrels that he filled with iron filings.
Mesmer re-discovered life energy and he viewed it in a scientific context. So did Wilhelm Reich, Karl von Reichenbach, and others after him.
Wilhelm Reich was familiar with Mesmer's work, since he had studied hypnosis when he was a disciple of Freud. In fact, for the past 150 years, every person who was learning hypnosis in the German speaking area learns about Mesmer as a "pioneer of hypnosis" right at the beginning of such studies. When "discovering" life energy within the context of his own work as an MD and psychologist, Reich used the term orgone for it. He discovered that organic materials (he meant materials that contain carbon or silicone such as paper, wool, cotton, sand, or glass wool) attract and hold life energy while metal has the characteristic of attracting life energy and then immediately repelling it. This understanding was a big step ahead of Mesmer's oaken barrels that were filled with iron filings to attract "animal magnetism." Based on this new understanding why life energy was attracted, Reich was capable of building orgone accumulators that were more effective than Mesmer's barrels and at the same time they
required much less material. He built boxes with alternating layers of organic and metallic matter. The outside is organic while the innermost layer is metallic. He recognized that the capability to attract and store life energy (as I said, he called it orgone) increased with the increase of layers. Mesmer's oaken barrels with iron filings then were single layer orgone accumulators.
