Example text

However, I believe that even the most flagrant irrationality must contain something of rational truth. (Reich, quoted in Makavejev, 1972, p. 46) This amazing statement captures both Reich’s grandiosity and his life-long sense of being out of place, of having no place. So, perhaps, belonging in outer space may have come to make the best sense to Reich, as a place where he might finally find a home. S. federal government, would have entitled his brief to the court “Atoms for Peace vs. Hig (Hoodlums in Government)” (1956).

In his monograph, “Psychic Contact and Vegetative Current,” Reich describes the experience of what he called “contactlessness”: However, we learn much about this phenomenon [of inner emptiness and deadening] if we make the patient relive the transition from the alive to the dead condition as vividly as possible, and if we pay the closest attention to the swings from one condition to the other during treatment.
