Part One: A description of Kelley's meetings with Reich, at Orgonon, Rangeley, Maine (including a short description of the cloudbuster and his early weather work in Connecticut, which formed the basis of Kelley's book A New Method of Weather Control) and also a description of the Reichian people in New York in the early 1950s. Kelley describes the changes in his belief system and his views about Reich's book Ether, God & Devil; also a description about Reich's trial and imprisonment; his later break from the Reichians, and the founding f his journal The Creative Process. He makes a link between Reich's 'muscular armoring' and Ribot's 1890 theories inThe Psychology of Attention and this connection, with his early work on vision, formed the basis of Radix.
Part Two: Kelley elaborates on his educational model; his avversion to the 'medical model'; his vision work with Renshaw and the Bates method. (CY)
