So, for years a “fraction” of the orgonite using community is promoting that aluminium as a main constituent of Orgonite is harmful. They mostly base it on a small remark by Wilhelm Reich in which he observed some negative effects with an aluminium based orgone accumulator, I think in connection with what he called the Oranur-effect.
Firstly, Wilhelm Reich was constantly researching at the cutting edge of his time. So, many of his observations were later refined or revised by himself. He did that constantly. Even his evaluation of the “Oranur effect” changed over time when he noted that radioactive Uranium after initial violent and sickening interactions could be orgonised (Orur) and be used to tickle the cosmic life energy as he did in his desert greening operations (Orop) in Arizona and elsewhere.
Secondly, we have never found such negative effects after years of getting fantastic results with aluminium in the orgonite.
The Kirlian photo above shows the radiant aura of a pendant with aluminium Orgonite.
Aluminium in Orgonite has some distinct advantages:
1. The filings are much thinner than those normally produced with iron or copper.
2. That results in a finer alternative layering of metal and resin, making the DOR to OR conversion more powerful.
3. At the shearing surfaces (where it has been shaved off), aluminium develops minute micro crystals that add power to the Orgonite.
4. The devices are lighter, hence lower shipping cost Easy to get and relatively cheap (that would also be true for iron filings but they are normally quite clunky) Of course, all metals have different energy signatures.
It would be naive to deny that. Everything has an energy signature.
There is no dead matter. That’s now pretty much common knowledge. On a certain level all matter is consciousness, right? (Even a rock has/is consciousness). But this does not mean that aluminium is “negative” or copper or gold is “positive”. Just like the addition of healing gemstones adds “colour” and rich overtones to the basically always positive etheric vibration of any Orgonite, using different metals can enhance certain healing aspects of the Orgonite. This is happening on a more subtle level than the actual “raw” energy conversion from DOR to POR which is nothing else but removing a blockage and getting stagnant Chi to flow again.
The way I understand it is that there are finer and finer levels of perception. (like the layers of an onion or the famous Russian dolls with a doll within a doll…) Our conventional 3D reality is the coarsest level. The level of “Orgone Energy” is almost protophysical, it visually affects clouds and has other very easily observable physical effects. Gemstones and other additions to Orgonite - also when used on their own – work on a much finer vibratory level.
For this reason we add copper, gold and silver to personal healing tools in order to bring in these finer healing vibrations where it’s appropriate.
