The modern day re-discoverer of orgone energy was Wilhelm Reich. He wrote two books which were exclusively devoted to the topic of orgone energy and its characteristics. They are called The Cancer Biopathy and The Function of the Orgasm. In 2001, Don Croft ran into a man who had bought an expensive radionics device that -when opened - revealed a shallow layer of fiberglass resin mixed with metal shavings inside, at the bottom of the box. Don got the idea to copy this innovation and poured a small amount of resin and metal chips in the bottom of his Hulda Clark style, positive offset 555 chip zapper which he was selling on the internet.
Don's wife noticed that his aura expanded considerably when he put this modified zapper on his body, so it seemed that the radionics guy had stumbled upon a principle of orgone energy which was explained- in theory at least - in Reich's books. Combining an organic based hydrocarbon with metal chips had the effect of both attracting and repelling orgone energy. When confined within a crystalline fiberglass resin matrix (combined with metal shavings) the effect seems to transmute negative polarity orgone (DOR) into the positive polarity of orgone (OR). Thus the orgone generator (different from an orgone 'accumulator') was born.
Filling a 2 gallon plastic bucket with fiberglass resin and metal shavings, installing six evenly spaced one inch pipes with a quartz crystal at the bottom, created the first orgone generator "chembuster". Don Croft preferred to call it a "cloud buster", but that device made by Wilhelm Reich contained no solid orgone generator materials and is a separate instrument altogether. I used the name"chembuster" in my January 2002 article describing how to build a chembuster and I think many people find "chembuster" to be a more appropriate designation, while simultaneously avoiding confusion with Reich's cloudbuster.
Breaking with Don Croft
From 2002 until mid summer of 2006, I was posting Don Croft's articles to this web site. Beginning in 2004, I began to notice that Don Croft was the sort of individual who smiles to your face, but then talks about you unflatteringly behind your back. I gradually noticed that he was taking digs at me in print for whatever ideas I had proposed at my web site as innovations in the making of orgone generators. Apparently, Don felt that only he and his anointed disciples are allowed to experiment in this arena, but all others are to be denigrated and insulted (including me). Don also was upset that I had substituted silver discs in place of the pennies he was using on his Terminator II zappers ( I explained to him that the silver discs cause no skin irritation -which was commonplace with the pennies, but it didn't matter. Since I thought of the idea, he was against it. I found that petty resentment on his part to be the case with whatever ideas I came up with. In other words, the guy resented me for merely coming up with my own ideas. I guess I was expected to ask his permission or something). I didn't say anything about these slights publicly or privately, but my vexation at his ingratitude towards me-especially since I was buying his zappers from him wholesale when I could have built them myself at a fraction of the cost- got to a boiling point in 2006 after finding out from Lilly Oschescu of the Woman Warriors that he was telling her and others that I was a government "agent."
So much for gratitude and loyalty after making his name a household word, having, of course, praised him to the rafters during the same four year period he's running my name into the ground. The insulting remarks that Don was making against ZS Livingstone in 2003 and 2004 were equally off-putting and I was beginning to see a man who writes with ringing words but walks on feet of clay.
Don Croft deserves full credit for launching the orgone generator movement and no one can take that away from him. As to his character, honor, and integrity, there is much to be desired.
