 The words "anxiety" (L. angere
"to choke") "anguish" (L. angustia
"tightness")) and "anger"
"narrow") are etymologically related. This is understandable,
these states are related on an emotional level and are expressed in
specific shapes and forms of movement of energy in the body and

 What distinguishes Reich's position concerning the existence of a
specific biological energy is not his assertion that such an energy
exists, but his insistence that such an energy can be scientifically
demonstrated. In Reich's words, "Orgone
is a visible, measurable, and applicable energy of a cosmic nature.
Such concepts as 'id,' 'entelechy,' or 'élan vital,' on the
hand, are only inklings of
the existence of such an energy."
Character Analysis, p. 304 n. (Reich's italics) A discussion of
some of Reich's views in this regard can be found in Mann, E. Orgone, Reich & Eros: Wilhelm Reich's
Theory of Life Energy (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1973).
