"That something owns this earth -- all others warned off."
“The Earth is a farm....”
"I think we’re property. I should say we belong to something…"
"I suspect that, after all, we’re useful, ... That all this has been known, perhaps for ages, to certain ones upon this earth, a cult or order, members of which function like bellwethers to the rest of us, or as superior slaves or overseers, directing us in accordance with instructions received - from somewhere else - in our mysterious usefulness.”
Charles FORT, The book of the Damned, (1919)
"It [Orgone] is sexual energy which governs the structure of human feeling and thinking."
Wilhelm REICH, Die Sexualität im Kulturkampf [The Sexual Revolution] (1936)
"The discovery of Orgone energy was made through consistent, thorough study of energy functions, first in the realm of the psyche, and later in the realm of biological functioning."
Wilhelm REICH, Ether, God and Devil (1949)
"I am well aware of the fact that the human race has known about the existence of a universal energy related to life for many ages. However, the basic task of natural science consisted of making this energy usable. This is the sole difference between my work and all preceding knowledge."
Wilhelm REICH, Archives of the Orgone Institute; quoted in "The New American Medicine" in Journal of The Mindshift Institute (2002)
"Most humans have only one hair color and one eye color. Europeans are a big exception:
their hair is black but also brown, flaxen, golden, or red; their eyes are brown but also blue, gray, hazel, or green. This diversity reaches a maximum in an area centered on the… Baltic Sea. "
"Why this color diversity? Some believe it to be a side effect of natural selection for fairer skin to ensure enough vitamin D at northern latitudes. Yet skin color is weakly influenced by the different alleles for hair color or eye color apart from the ones for red hair or blue eyes. Some have no effect at all on skin pigmentation."
"Others put the cause down to intermixture with Neanderthals. Yet, according to the mtDNA that has been retrieved, no genetic continuity is discernible between late Neanderthals and early modern Europeans.
For others still, this color diversity arose through random factors…But these factors could not have produced such a wide variety of hair and eye hues in the 35,000 years that modern humans have inhabited Europe. … nearly a million years would be needed to accumulate this amount of diversity. Moreover, it is odd that the same sort of diversification has evolved at two different genes ..."
"Thus, some kind of non-random process seems to have targeted hair and eye color …as visible characteristics. But how? And why?"
"Interestingly, blond hair has arisen independently among some Aborigines of central Australia and is more frequent there in women than in men."
"A final avenue for research might be to extract DNA from skeletal remains in order to chart European MC1R and OCA2 variability over the last ice age… MC1R and OCA2 variability should have developed almost entirely during this time window (c. 25,000 - 10,000 BP)."

"Our tests showed that [MC1R carriers] are less sensitive to … pain. They react less … They seem to be a bit better protected, and that is a really interesting finding,"
"It seems that MCR1 is involved in central functions in the brain…This could be the key to explaining why [they] are a little different to other people,"
Professor Lars Arendt-Nielsen, Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction. Aalborg University. (2012)
"The … MC1R mutation … also releases a hormone in the brain that has the ability to mimic endorphins. Endorphins have several functions, but one of their primary roles is to provide pain relief. This ultimately affects how the body receives pain signals from the brain…"
