Other than wit and imagination, i am open to any interpretation or explanation of the Orgone Accumulator. It can be a feminist polemic. A sci-fi dystopia. A contemporary franchise document. You could tackle, if you are ambitious, the concept of much modern literature being perhaps inspired by the Orgone Accelerator.
The judges decision – aka MINE – is final. I will be choosing three winners next Thursday May 3 and announcing them in this post. I will be reading all entries next week so there is no need to rush your entry.
There are so many questions re the Orgone Accumulator: Did any woman ever use it? Did you have to come to climax IN the machine? Or did you just meditate while the orgasm particles buzzed around?
