Re: The nature of the original Time Lag Accumulator

The Orgone Accumulator supposedly worked by having the rays of Orgone 
energy coming in from all angles to get trapped between catching buffers 
and bounce around to arrive at the centre. So looking at the picture and 
reading the text, I think that the joke Riley (and Coe probably. He was 
the enfant terrible here)  must have meant was the sound following the 
same path as the supposed Orgone. 

Given that a lot of counterculture types were into Reich back then, it's 
an interesting trick to be playing, and not really like any other stuff he 
(Riley) did.
