James DeMeo, director of the Orgone Biophysical Research Lab and a scientist heavily influenced by Wilhelm Reich, has died, according to this death notice posted April 5 at the Wilhelm Reich Museum website. I could not find a conventional obituary that includes the time of death. The last posting on his Twitter account is dated Jan. 23.
DeMeo's books included Saharasia: The 4000 BCE Origins of Child Abuse, Sex-repression, Warfare and Social Violence, In the Deserts of the Old World. Robert Anton Wilson liked the book, and Eric Wagner, who gave me the news tip on DeMeo, likes it, too. (See "RAW's Recommended Book List" on the still maintained official RAW site.)
