Orgone Theory of Good and Evil
'Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil.'

Orgone Directional Thesis
<-- Matter-Energy-Spirit (oranur, destruction, evil)
This is a very condensed version of a 9000 word essay that has been developing for years and doesn't really give the implications and the subtleties justice. It is here just to give a rough overview or reminder of the topics - the full essay is here
There appears to be only one cosmic force - the creative life-force, orgone. This force can have a destructive side too, if irritated by nuclear or electrical energy. This destructive aspect of orgone is called oranur or DOR. So this singular force has a dual nature, orgone which is a creative and good aspect and oranur which is destructive and evil aspect.
But.....If there is only one cosmic force, why does evil exist at all?
I proposed previously that orgone has consciousness and that it has spirit, energy and matter aspects. I define spirit as physical consciousness. (See the Orgone Continuum).
The Orgone Directional Thesis solves the problem of the existence of evil by proposing that goodness is a directional process of the cosmic force from Spirit to Energy to Matter. Healthy Bions, orgone energy, creativity and sexuality all travel in this direction.
Evil is a directional process of the cosmic force in the opposite direction from Matter to Energy to Spirit. T-bacilli negative bions, destruction and oranur energy all travel in this direction.
There are two previous theories which could be used to develop an orgonomic theory of good and evil which I call the Desert Thesis and the Oranur Thesis. Both these theories can be contained within the Directional Thesis.
In the Desert Thesis there is destruction and desertification of the life environment caused by lack of water (Matter). The environment becomes dominated by a hostile energy - oranur/DOR (Energy). This causes societal armouring - muscular and character defences against trauma (Spirit). This desert process is a Matter-Energy-Spirit direction - evil.
In the Oranur Thesis it is assumed that the oranur energy has consciousness so this represents evil directly. Orgone energy is the creative aspect of orgone and I believe it also has consciousness or 'Spirit'. So this represents goodness directly. Orgone creates energy and then matter so Spirit-Energy-Matter - goodness.
Oranur is also conscious I believe and is created from the destruction or overcharge of matter (nuclear or electrical) interacting with orgone. The destruction of matter creates oranur energy which is then consumed at a conscious or spirit level so Matter-Energy-Spirit - evil.
Good and evil are states of consciousness which manifest either as a creative outburst from Spirit into Energy and then Matter (goodness) or as a destructive consumption from Matter to Energy to Spirit (evil). The causation of good and evil lies within consciousness (but outside of time) as a creator from spirit into energy and then matter (in goodness) or as a consumer of matter becoming energy and then into spirit (evil).
Good and evil originate in consciousness and are natural aspects of a singular cosmic force. They are separate to any human institution or thought system. Good and evil are innate and natural but humanity has overcome nature's normal boundaries creating our current terrible situation of inordinate suffering for ourselves and nature. Good and evil in nature are contained, in humanity it is not. Our situation is a question of quantity rather than quality therefore. It also implies that we cannot take refuge in any human system - as any system can be made to work for good or evil depending on the consciousness of those within it. However some philosophies will bring us closer or further away from the truth of how the universe works and therefore encourage good or evil. So systems and philosophies are not neutral. Also a philosophy may have good or evil intentions. However, in the final analysis a good system can be made to create evil and even an evil system may eventually create good depending on the consciousness of those within it.
