Four members of Orgonise Africa, a New Age group, were arrested by Mozambican police for attempting to sabotage the Cahora Bassa dam by dumping a corrosive substance into water supply. The four men, a German architect, a Portuguese hotelier, a Botsanan pilot and a South-African "prophet", explained that they weren't trying to damage the dam. Instead, they were attempting to "bring positive energy to the region" by putting a material known as orgonite into the lake.
In reality, the quartet didn't want to hurt anyone. They were only trying to keep the Illuminati from controlling the world through microwaves. The group had clearly advertised their intentions on their website. The charges were downgraded from terrorism to dumping toxic chemicals into the water, but nothing has been ruled out.
Although this sounds bizarre, this is hardly an isolated incident. People are "gifting" our lakes and rivers with orgonite all over the world.
What is Orgonite?
Orgonite, the mystical substance in question, is most often composed of fiberglass, metal shavings of any sort, polyester and quartz. It was invented by Dr. Wilhelm Reich.
Dr. Wilhelm Reich was a scientist of some repute in his day, a pioneer in sexual psychology. As the years passed, Dr. Reich became convinced that the world lacked orgone.
From Orgonite info:
Dr. Reich determined that stacking alternating layers of fiberglass (an organic substance) and steel wool (an inorganic substance) would actually attract and collect orgone/etheric energy of both the life-beneficial positive form (which Reich called "OR" or "POR") and harmful negative etheric energy
So there is that.
Orgonite gifting goes on all over the world even in Omaha, Nebraska.
By a user named Anonymous Coward:
today i took 60 pieces of orgonite, and gifted all the towers i didn't before. Then i went to council bluffs and offut/bellevue and gifted about 30-40 towers, and some water gifting.
i ordered 240 pieces of orgonite, and the day was clear and sunny for the whole day, and i gifted 140 pieces in the general omaha area, tossing any body of water or tower. Maybe a little too generously, but nothing wrong with overgifting right?
this has huge potentials, ending droughts and eliminating pollution, and maybe even creating bumper crops and cleaning the water supply, as well as bring more rain in a *natural* weather pattern.
There doesn't seem to be a definitive study on the health risks of orgonite in our drinking water. In Mozambique, they are still testing to see if the orgonite is harmful to humans, animals and the dam.
Mrs Ritschl said the orgonite was "from clear cast polyester resin" and "aluminium filings".
She said the resin manufacturer had confirmed in writing that the resin was stable in water and "only negligible amounts of styrene could be released, if at all".
"As the aluminium is mostly enclosed in the resin, there is no danger there as well."
The suspects face two to eight years in prison if convicted.
