"If orgone bions of Wilhelm Reich actually do exist, and if they dance in the air, then they will be very difficult to observe. This is not because we cannot see them. This is because we also see the White Blood Cells (Leukocytes) of the retinal blood vessels which dance and gyrate, and leave little V-shaped wakes as they move through the tortuous capillaries in front of the retina.
While I was still a student, I worked as a Research Assistant at the Center for Visual Science in Rochester, NY. At one point I had an opportunity to visit a vision research laboratory in Boston MA, where I had an opportunity to observe a device which was used to make these moving leukocytes VERY visible. It was a de-focused laser which was aimed into an eyepiece. It was violet in color, with a frequency chosen which is absorbed by hemocytes. When I looked into this eyepiece, I saw a uniformly illuminated field of light, of violet-white color. In this field I saw several hundred moving yellow dots. If I recall correctly, each dot seemed to possess a V-shaped "wake" like a speeding boat makes upon the water. (this supposedly comes from stimulation of the retina's edge-detector neural computation, and all moving objects have these "wakes.")
The dots are leukocytes which move along through the blood-filled capillaries. I noticed that the velocity of all of these dots was varying in synchronism with my heartbeat. As my blood pressure changed during each heartbeat, the dots moved fast and slow. The moving dots seemed to wander randomly, yet many of them executed a typical maneuver: a wiggling, sinusoidal trajectory. Apparently there are many capillaries on the retina which have the shape of a snake, a sine-wave, and when a leukocyte travels through that channel, it executes a sinusoidal "wiggle" motion.
The capillaries are said to be normally invisible because they are full of hemocytes (red blood cells), and these hemocytes are too close to each other, and too far away from the retina to create individual shadows.
Therefor, like the capillaries themselves, the retina "edits" the blood out the view perceived by the brain. On the other hand, the leukocytes (White blood cells) are large, and they act like gaps in the columns of blood which fill the capillaries. These "moving holes" in the blood are made visible when we stare at a uniformly illuminated surface. Even better, stare at a point-source illuminator (laser, or light passed through a single glass fiber) which has been extremely de-focused by a powerful lens (such as a telescope eyepiece.) Doing so is an improvement, since as a result, the light rays behave as parallel lines at the place where they strike the retina, and so the shadows of the leukocytes will be very sharp. (They actually will be ring-like diffraction patterns.) If instead we star at the blue sky, then the light rays behave as "diffuse light" at the location where they strike the retina, and the shadows of the leukocytes will be fuzzier and more difficult to notice.
Do airborne "bions" exist? I do not know, because if they do, they would be almost impossible to see, because we observe them through a crowd of wiggling leukocytes. Obviously, this fact can be used by "Skeptics" to dismiss reports of observed Bions.
I suspect that the "bions" in the brightly lit sky do not exist, and we are just seeing retinal leukocytes. But this does not mean that, in other situations (in darkness, for example, where no shadows are projected on the retina), visual observation of "bions" are not accurate.
SOME OTHER MUSINGS:
When I am observing the moving dots, I can concentrate my attention upon one small region, and I notice something interesting. A moving dot will repeatedly pass through the same region, and it always takes the same path. This clearly is not random. Instead, a row of dots is marching along a single "highway", and the shape of the "highway" determines the path.
Sometimes a sudden motion of my body causes the wiggling dots in the blue sky to become very visible. Perhaps when I suddenly lay down upon the ground? Or suddenly rise from a chair? For a few moments, my entire field of vision becomes filled with the tiny moving dots , and it is very obvious that the speed of all of them is synchronized with my heartbeat.
The whole population of dots moves fast-slow-fast-slow-fast. Then it vanishes again. I ascribe this event to sudden rises of blood pressure in the capillaries of the retina.
If I close one eye, de-focus and relax the other, then if I move my head, the pattern of the dots follows my head movements, and it does not remain stable in the outside world. The pattern of dots is associated with the interior of my eye."
Here is normal person experience I've found on a discussion board :
"I've began to notice that if I look at a well lit and bright area (such as a clear blue sky) and just stare, defocusing my eyes.. after about 20 seconds I notice little specs of light like dust spinning about.. Sorta the size of dust particles, but the way they move is spiral in pattern. I don't notice this at all unless I do the 'blank stare' for awhile at a bright surface.
Anyone else notice these? "
To this I tend to respond that it's perfectly normal. Every article I've read on this subject say you can see your blood cells as described above while looking at a clear blue sky. The problem is that I can see this entopic phenomenon everywhere !
What I see look like this. The little particles are actually more white and bright than yellow but I chose this colour to make them more visible on the drawing :
I've figured out two possible causes for this abnormal ability to see my own blood :
1_ It comes from my blood : blood pressure or blood composition but more likely blood pressure inside my retinas. (But I don't know if it's because of a high blood pressure or a low blood pressure.)
2_ It comes from my lens and my eye's shape : I'm near-sighted, so I believe my ability to focus is different from other people. The lens is the part of the eye responsible for this focus. My eye's shape because since I'm quite highly myopic, my eye is abnormally long.
