Overview

These companion volumes, long out of print, are now presented together for the first time so that the reader may better grasp their essential unity. In Ether, God and Devil, Wilhelm Reich describes the process of functional thinking and reveals how the inner logic of this objective thought technique led him to the discovery of cosmic orgone energy.

In Cosmic Superimposition, Reich steps beyond the character structure of man to an understanding of how man is rooted in nature. The super-imposition of two orgone-energy systems which is demonstrable in the genital embrace is revealed as a common functioning principal that exists in all of nature. Concluding this work, Reich returns to the human sphere "to ponder about the greatest riddle of all: the ability of man to think, and by mere thinking to know what nature is and how it works."

(Thank you, Jenna) RYDER I blinked. It was still there. Presents, wrapped in red and green. "Am I still dreaming?" "It's real." Jasmine was pulling a piece of rope out of her sweatshirt. "I saved this from when you guys came." She fashioned it into a sort of lasso and looped it around one that clearly said JASMINE, then RYDER, then PENELOPE. I looked at her. "When did you learn /that/?" "I don't know." Jasmine pulled open hers. "Whoa!" She almost dropped it. "What is it?" Penny spat another piece of rope out of her mouth, and I was surprised to see she had knawed through at least half of the ropes. Wordlessly, Jasmine held up a long dagger and unsheathed it. Jewels such as rubies, emeralds, saphires, and amethysts were imbedded in the golden hilt. The surface was silver and polished to a shine. Then she reached into the box again. "Whoa!" She shouted again. A bow and a quiver, filled with arrows. "Where did this come from?" I used my feet to pull mine towards me. "Santa Claus!" Penny squealed. "It does make sense," Jasmine said thoughtfully. "I doubt the crazy kidnapper people would care enough to give us presents." "True." I used my teeth to rip open the package and got a paper cut on my tongue. "Ow!" Then I saw the actual gift. "A sword? What the?" Like Jasmine's dagger, stones were implanted in the golden hilt and the blade sharp and made of a sturdy silver material. I could see my face in it, and was surprised by how weary I looked. A clanking noise followed my exclaimation. Jasmine's chains fell to the floor, and she got to her feet, stretching. "Oh, that feels good!" She inspected her dagger. "This could be useful." "Um, little help here?" I jerked my head towards my chains. "Oh, right." Jasmine swung the dagger, and it cleaved through the metal like warm cheese. I rubbed my wrists. "Thanks, Jaz." "Hey! Don't forget about me! My feet are alseep!" Penny called out. Seeing how frayed the rope was, I pulled at it, and she fell into my arms. "Thank you!" She said sweetly. "Now put me down!" She squirmed free and ran to her gift. It was small, containing a vial filled with a blue liquid. A note was attached, saying, 'Healing vial. Use in emergencies. From, Santa. P. S. Now you three had better believe!' I put her down and exchanged a glance with Jasmine. I put my hand on the wall. "There aren't any exits or entrances that I can see. We might have gotten out, but how will we you know, get out?" Then something flew through the wall and onto the floor, and I realized things just got complicated.
