On December 30, 1940, Reich wrote to Albert Einstein saying he had a scientific discovery he wanted to discuss, and on January 13, 1941 went to visit Einstein in Princeton. They talked for five hours, and Einstein agreed to test an orgone accumulator, which Reich had constructed out of a Faraday cage made of galvanized steel and insulated by wood and paper on the outside. Einstein agreed that if, as Reich suggested, an object's temperature could be raised without an apparent heating source, it would be a "bombshell" in physics.
Reich supplied Einstein with a small accumulator during their second meeting, and Einstein performed the experiment in his basement, which involved taking the temperature atop, inside, and near the device. He also stripped the device down to its Faraday cage to compare temperatures. In his attempt to replicate Reich's findings, Einstein observed a rise in temperature, which Reich argued was caused by the orgone energy that had accumulated inside the Faraday cage. However, one of Einstein's assistants pointed out that the temperature was lower on the floor than on the ceiling.Following that remark, Einstein modified the experiment and, as a result, concluded that the effect was simply due to the temperature gradient inside the room. He wrote back to Reich, describing his experiments and expressing the hope that Reich would develop a more skeptical approach.
Reich responded with a 25-page letter to Einstein, expressing concern that "convection from the ceiling" would join "air germs" and "Brownian movement" to explain away new findings. The correspondence between Reich and Einstein was published by Reich's press as The Einstein Affair in 1953, possibly without Einstein's permission

Wilhelm Reich was an Austrian-born psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who worked with Sigmund Freud in the 1930's. He authored the book The Mass Psychology of Fascism in 1933.
Ironically, that same book would later be ordered destroyed by the FDA and US government, because it mentioned "orgone." Orgone was the form of energy Reich claimed to have discovered and learned how to collect and use. According to Reich, it was inherent to all living organisms and was tied heavily into our sexual urges and impulses, but was also vital to all life. Reich published scientific literature and produced devices able to collect and store orgone, according to his work.
The FDA held an injunction against Reich on a technical legal basis, that his lawyers were quoted as saying was "weak," and which they could easily help Reich get out of. Reich apparently took the trials as an opportunity to demonstrate the validity of his inventions, refused to argue his case on a legal basis, and was held in contempt of court. He was sentenced to 2 years' imprisonment in 1956 for contempt of court. He died the following year in prison.
After his imprisonment for contempt of court, at least some 6 tons of his books were burned, overseen by the FDA, and all of his equipment destroyed.
Here is a video serving as an introduction to his work:
Orgone devices are very simple, not unlike a simple electrical circuit that would simply produce an electrical current (which our bodies also use -- though not so directly). The most basic orgone device is simply layers of an organic material like wool, resin, etc. with metal. Reich said that metal conducted and "reflected" orgone from the environment (similarly to how metal conducts electricity), and that organic materials absorbed and stored it. The energy also seems to have a distinct pulsation or frequency component to it.
Long story short, people still make "orgone devices" and plant them all around electrical generators, cell phone towers, etc. to counter EM radiation that pollutes our surroundings and help restore balance. And the government hates it.
For anyone familiar with "chemtrails" (which the government also strongly denies, despite foreign countries admitting to modifying their own weather), orgone devices are supposed to be able to bust up chemtrails and help restore natural balance to weather formations. There are lots of people that play with this stuff on a daily basis and swear by it (look up the "Warrior Matrix" forums, for example), but you can try it yourself and come to your own conclusions. William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac were both orgone enthusiasts.
There are multiple videos on YouTube from orgone enthusiasts, who are not paranoid types of people (ie "Sensei Dennis") yet they are forced to notice that helicopters repeatedly circle their houses and fly low right over head as they are out fooling with the stuff. For what it's worth. After all, the FDA did have all of Reich's work burned as if this was Nazi Germany, so this stuff is obviously pissing someone off in the government.
If you've never heard of it, well now you have.
Edit to clarify thread title.
