When I was seventeen, in 1966, I had the privelege of sitting in the pilot seat of a downed Japanese Zero fighter plane in the Palau Islands. It was in a lagoon about ten feet deep and the magnesium which covered the wings and fuselage was still shiny. The steel parts of the plane were also intact after 22 years in shallow salt water.
These are two different metals, so electrolysis is
bound to erode one metal to the other. When we make
orgonite it's usually with one metal and when it's
on the seabed it's safe to assume that there will be
no other metal objects nearby for electrolysis to
take place. After 22 years, I didn't see evidence
of electrolysis on that downed airplane, so is this
an issue for orgonite?
I remember snorkeling in Guam, where I was living at
the time (I got away for my last summer in high
school to Palau and Yap) and finding unexploded
artillery projectiles in the water, also
intact. There's a lot more oxygen in shallow water
than in deep water. Most of our sea gifts end up in
deep water. Oxidation is what causes metal to
deteriorate. The cannon projectiles I saw in the
shallow water in Guam were pristine but the Japanese
cannons in shoreline bunkers were corroded almost
beyond recogition. By that measure, the orgonite we
toss on land is bound to 'rot' faster than the
orgonite we toss in the ocean.
I hope to God we can all constantly apply rational
thinking to our work. It's tough enough to be 'on
the fringe' of science without also being looked at
by our readers as flakes, don't you agree?
I often wonder why some folks insist on covering
their water gifts with special materials or casting
them in glass because funky orgonite will surely
last on the seabed a whole lot longer than the
stinking world order will last in this world.
The main objection I have to the fake-science
insistence on treating sea orgonite specially is
that not much of it would be made and distributed if
we felt compelled to do all that and spend the extra
money. Otherwise, I think I'm winning the war
against flaky assumptions about having to add
everything but the kitchen sink to field orgonite
pieces in order to get the requisite
confirmations. I think that by now most reputable
gifters are making the simplest, most affordable but
excellent stuff for most of their field work.
