Feelin' good about orgone

Chuck Enabnit says his generators absorb negative energy

Some people save the world by recycling, volunteering for environmental organizations or driving biodiesel cars. Chuck Enabnit does it by giving away orgone generators.

Don't know what orgone generators - or orgone, for that matter - are? Enabnit will be happy to tell you. He's been spreading his gospel of alternative healing methods for five years.

Enabnit, a longtime employee at the Sandy Library, is a self-proclaimed student of the science of the late William Reich - an Austrian-American psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who said he had discovered a physical energy that was contained in the atmosphere and all living matter, which he called 'orgone.'

When Enabnit worked at the Green Herb herbal medicine store years ago, he spent time researching alternative forms of healing. Through his Internet browsing he stumbled upon the work of Don Croft - an orgone scientist who, Enabnit says, 'took what Reich did to a quantum leap.'

Reich had built devices that generated orgone by layering organic and inorganic materials. Croft decided to instead evenly disperse the materials and add a quartz crystal, and by doing that, Enabnit says, he developed a device that generates positive orgone energy and absorbs negative energy.

'We are swimming in negative energy,' notes Enabnit. 'There's so much radio and electromagnetic pollution in our world today that it's causing an imbalance. These (devices) absorb that and generate a life-giving force that anything can benefit.'

By meticulously putting together resin, copper wire, metal flakes and a quartz crystal, Croft asserts, people can rid themselves of much of the world's ills - bad weather, bad attitudes, pollution and radiation, to name a few.

'This is weird stuff,' admits Enabnit. 'Some people think it's witchcraft. It's pseudo-science, maybe, but it's proven science.'

After doing some research five years ago, Enabnit decided to create his first orgone generator to firsthand learn more about the concept.

'I must admit, I was a bit embarrassed that I had done it,' Enabnit said. When he was finished creating the device, he placed it on a shelf in his garage, and quickly forgot about it. 'I figured it was total horse hockey,' he said, 'just wishful thinking.'

He stayed away from the garage for several weeks, but when he came back into the room, he said he instantly felt something peculiar was happening.

'When I walked out there, I suddenly had all these good feelings,' he said. 'I thought that it was so cozy - where'd that come from?' He said his glance suddenly rested on the device he created on the shelf.

'It was like a lightning bolt,' Enabnit said. 'I suddenly got really excited.'

That excitement continues today - five years later - where Enabnit now works on building generators every day.

He has made 'gifting' orgone generators to friends, family, and anyone else who will listen a hobby, a passion and a calling. He says said he has handed out hundreds of these small, cone-shaped devices, which cost him about $15 a pop. Enabnit eats the costs and gives away the devices.

He says out of all the orgone generators he has 'gifted,' only two have been returned - and one of those people eventually owned one again.

'I love making these and giving them away,' he says proudly. 'It's not just a hobby - it's a mission. I enjoy it because I like giving people something that will change their lives for the better, like Santa Claus.'


How to make an orgone generator

Here's what Chuck Enabnit says you need to build an orgone generator:

- A crystal point (Enabnit prefers either kyanite or selenite). The crystal, Enabnit says, acts as the engine for the device. 'The rocks recharge the device,' he says.

- Resin. Any kind is okay, Enabnit says, but some environmentally conscious orgone-gifters like to use the more earth-friendly pine resin.

- A coil of copper metal. Enabnit says the copper acts like an antenna, directing energy in a circular pattern.

- Metal particulate (shavings). Acting as tiny energy conductors, Enabnit says the particulate works to accent the organic/inorganic interaction.

- Basic, cone-shaped watercooler cups to form the crucial cone-shape of the generator. 'The cone shape seems to amplify the output,' Enabnit said.

- Glitter (not essential). Enabnit says he likes his orgone generators to 'look like art' so they're as pleasing visually as they are practically.

Place the crystal inside the watercooler cup, keeping it in the center of the cone. Put in the copper coil (which should wrap around the crystal), the metal shavings and finally the resin inside the cup, using a strict formula of 50 percent metal (shavings and copper wire) and 50 percent resin.

It's like electromagnetics,' Enabnit says, excitedly. 'It takes a negative charge and turns it into positive, like a magnet.'

Enabnit says that although it takes only hours for the resin to harden, it takes 'a couple weeks' for it to completely cure and for the device to be ready. 'Once it's set up it's not biodegradable,' he warns. 'It will be around some 100 years from now.'

And don't forget, size does matter. Enabnit says the bigger the generator, the bigger its effect will be.
