Orgonomy is the science of life energy and the emotional plague’s sole function is to destroy all manifestations of natural life. This is why only those who have an understanding of the operation of the emotional plague in today’s world can truly appreciate the importance of Wilhelm Reich’s scientific contributions and work in the orgonomic sciences. This rule applies not only to people in the general population who have a smattering of knowledge about Reich’s work but also to those who ostensibly are confirmed advocates of his work.
At one of Dr. Baker’s technical seminars for medical orgonomists in the mid-60s, a seminar member spoke of a contact that he had at a local radio station and that it was an opportunity for us to speak about Reich’s work on the air. The subjects that should be included in the talk were brought up . Many topics were raised as possibilities and there was a lot of excitement in the room. At some point, I suggested the emotional plague as a subject for discussion. Suddenly, all the excitement was gone. There was dead silence. It was as if I had said something terrible and the entire matter was dropped. Since then, many physicians practicing medical orgonomy have come and gone. Except for myself, every living person who was present at that seminar no longer functions as a medical orgonomist.
It was around that time that Dr. Baker began talking to me about the need for a book to be written about the history of the emotional plague.
