"It (Orgone Energy) can be manipulated and controlled by orgone energy devices, the best-known being the accumulator. Certain experiments indicate that the air temperature within the accumulator, and the body temperature of anyone sitting in it, rises, up to one degree centigrade, with variations depending upon the outside weather, the time of day and the sitter's character structure. Other evidence includes an increase in the impulse rate of the Geiger-Muller counter when exposed to orgone concentrations in an accumulator."

"There is much more information on the Joe cell that is available to the privileged few, but we have enough information from the above clues to identify the energy type. From the above, it is plain to see that without a shadow of a doubt in my mind, the Joe cell is a crude Orgone accumulator, and that the cell runs on, or collects Orgone. There is a 100% correlation with Orgone energy and its properties. As these accumulators have been and are in use all over the world, the constructor can share in this vast pool of knowledge. He can bypass the myths, misinformation and the mongers of secrets and get on with scientifically based facts. Also, he can be prepared to realise and meet the DANGERS that await the rash and foolhardy." Alex Schiffer, "Experimenter's Guide to the Joe Cell"
"It (Life Force) is in constant motion. It has an uneven movement from West to East at a speed considerably greater than the Earth's rotation. The motion is a pulsating expansion and contraction and a flow normally along a curved path. Inside an accumulator, the energy is emitted as a spinning wave. Both of these can be seen to varying degrees in a charging vat and/or cell. These signs are very important to the experimenter as they are his tools in the different stages of seeding and breeding of the cell." Alex Schiffer, "Experimenter's Guide to the Joe Cell"
"It (Life Force) can be manipulated and controlled. We do this in the cell by forming alternate organic and non-organic "cylinders" to form an accumulator for the Orgone. Thus the organic layers attract and soak up the Orgone and the metallic layers draw it from the organic material and radiate it into the interior of the accumulator. Additionally, we use electricity, magnetism and electrolysis to assist with the breeding process." Alex Schiffer, "Experimenter's Guide to the Joe Cell"
"Sometimes I have to restate the obvious, namely, if we are to accumulate Orgone energy, we must have an Orgone accumulator! We are not designing this cell to use Neutrinos, Deuterium, Nitroglycerine, steam, Nitrogen, Hydrogen, Hydroxy, or for any other author's pet opinion to the contrary. You will have to read other publications for those topics and cell designs, this train goes to Orgone country. We are designing our cell to run on Orgone energy! As such, a close study of the chapters on Orgone properties and cell polarities would be in order. If you were a naughty boy and skipped over these sections, I would suggest that you read them now. So what have you discovered? You should be in agreement with me on at least two points, ie. that the cell should use as many of one type of Orgone polarity as possible, and additionally, we want to utilise as many as possible of all external forces available to us to assist us in the accumulation of the Orgone energy." Alex Schiffer, "Experimenter's Guide to the Joe Cell"
"For the electronically versed readers, let me explain to you one way that the cell acts as a concentric energy accumulator. It is a well known fact that the charge of a capacitor is proportional to the surface area of the plates. Similarly, we know that the potential increases as we bring the plates closer together. Now look at the beauty of the Joe cell. We have a set of concentric plates with an obvious reduction of surface area as we move towards the middle of the cell. Now, as the surface area of the cylinders decreases towards the middle, we automatically have the charge increasing as we move towards the centre! Therefore, the greater the number of cylinders, the greater, or more intense, is this charge build up. So, thrown in at no extra design cost is an automatic magnifier for the Orgone force that is concentrated automatically at the centre of the cell. The above applies only if the water can act as a dielectric, ie. that it does not have too many ions in the water. Thank you Nature! By the way, on a larger scale, the Earth is the middle of the accumulator and the different atmospheric layers are the cylinders that concentrate the Sun's radiations."

"In this section, I would like to take you, step by step, through the cell construction process. I have stated in other sections of this book and I would like to also state here that there are countless methods of constructing Orgone accumulators. The method described here is based on the Joe cell construction techniques. For a very comprehensive description of this type of cell, I would presume that the reader has read, or has access to, a copy of Barry Hiltonâ€™s book, "How to run Your Car on Zero Point Energy". This book contains in words and diagrams what Joe wanted the public to know about his cell." Alex Schiffer, "Experimenter's Guide to the Joe Cell"
"As discovered by many experimenters and holy people, Orgone, or the life force, loves or has a great affinity for water. Just as well, or we and the rest of the planet's "living" creations would not be here. So the first step in our quest to build an accumulator is to provide for whatever we are trying to accumulate, a container or area where we can accomplish this task. Okay, as far as I am concerned, we are trying to accumulate Orgone energy, thus the aim of the game for me, is to provide the most attractive and pleasant area to allow this energy to gather and then I concentrate, focus and utilise the energy before finally releasing it back to where it came from. If we assume for the moment that Orgone will be accumulated by water, the next question is obvious; what type of water, in what type of container, how large? etc. Here experimenters have gone in all directions and a huge mythology from armchair experts has developed to show the way to the "blind". Let me state from the start that Reich and others have spent their lives telling us how and what to do. I have compiled a great deal of scientific information, and as such, I am standing on many great shoulders that have passed before me to give me a better view of the problem, and I claim no credit. The only credit I claim is that I have got up from my backside and have actually done it. So by doing, now I know, like you will, if you ever make a cell. So, if I am dealing with living energies, it makes absolute sense to me to accumulate them in living water! All water is not just plain old water, nor are all pure waters the same, or pure. Unfortunately, the experimenter grasps on the word "pure" and immediately images of "pure" water from the local supermarket or distilled or rain water or his favourite filtered tap water flashes into his head. No, No, No! I am deliberately belabouring this point as it is critical in the construction of easy seeding, breeding and low leakage cells. Get your water right or stop reading here and use these notes to light fires." Alex Schiffer, "Experimenter's Guide to the Joe Cell"
"Note. The following is a theory and eventually may be proven wrong, but the way I see it is that the water and the cylinder bores in the motor act as a single layer Orgone accumulator, ie. an organic material (water) surrounding a non-organic cylinder (the bore). As such, an engine with a bore that is fully surrounded with water will be far superior to an engine that uses siamesed bores or casting methods, without the benefit of the totally water-surrounding cylinder. Now, as most aluminium blocks have metal sleeve cylinders pressed into the aluminium block for bores, this feature allows for full water circulation and completes our single layer Orgone accumulator. It also makes it less leaky and more conducive to conversion to a Joe cell system. Remember, Orgone loves water. This is also (in my opinion) the reason why a person who chooses an air cooled motor will have more problems than one who uses a water cooled motor." Alex Schiffer, "Experimenter's Guide to the Joe Cell"
"Orgone in relation to some other energies. By Lawrence Barth. "In the late 1950's, Gaston Burridge published an article on "cone" energy. He discovered a form of energy which, he states, his and others' experiments show come in a beam from the apex of a cone or pyramid purely of metal, or made of cardboard or wood covered on the outside with metal foil, especially brightly polished foil. Here one is reminded of the orgone accumulator, especially the funnel accumulator, but we must notice that the metal is on the outside of the organic material, not the reverse; nor need there be any opening at the apex, as is the case with the funnel, to the best of my knowledge. The radiation comes in a beam from the apex rather than equally from every surface of the metal. The beam is as intense at night as at daytime, this seems to eliminate sunlight as the direct source of the energy." Alex Schiffer, "Experimenter's Guide to the Joe Cell"
"For the more dubious reader, I will quote directly from some of the comments of witnesses that were present when Reich was demonstrating the Orgone motor:
Myron Sharaf. "...it involved the use of an accumulator attached to a motor; concentrated Orgone energy was triggered by a small amount of electricity, an amount insufficient to rotate the motor without the accumulator... When powered by the combination of Orgonotic and electrical energy, it ran smoothly and quietly; but the speed varied depending upon the weather...more rapidly on dry, clear days, more slowly when the humidity was high."
Elsworth Baker. "Reich first used vacor tubes in series attached to a small accumulator and connected to a transformer to build up an electric charge to excite the Orgone energy. He used four or five vacor tubes. All were connected to a 25 Volt electric motor... Reich took away one vacor tube after another until all were taken away, and still the motor ran. The important ingredient was the so-called Y factor which Reich did not divulge... On Orgone energy, the motor was practically noiseless and ran smoother and faster. At times, it would change direction. In damp weather, it would not run."
Lois Wyvell. "The one I saw was about the size of a large orange... It was hooked up to a special Orgone accumulator with the Y factor that Reich did not divulge as he felt mankind was not ready to use such a potentially boundless power rationally... But the motor ran on atmospheric orgone energy fed to it through the accumulator and also from the human energy field... It ran erratically, as no motor with a mechanical energy source does. It slowed down and speeded up without any interference. Also, if one curved his hands over the motor, it picked up speed, and with one's hand over it, it speeded up and slowed down... It reversed itself every once in a while without slowing down, even without a jolt." Alex Schiffer, "Experimenter's Guide to the Joe Cell"
