Brandon Herling Professor Wilson Psychology 230 Lab B 2/5/08 Cloud Busting Review This experiment was designed to test theories about Orgone energy, a supposed energy force derived from orgasms. Orgone energy supposedly connects all things, and to test this theory, an experiment is conducted. The purpose of the experiment is to prove the existence of orgone energy through alleged manipulation of clouds. A random sampling of individuals are chosen and then instructed to will clouds to dissipate. Each trial consists of a control cloud and a cloud being willed to dissipate by the participant. Results were logged, and some spotty math done, and the experimenter concluded that the participants were indeed able to dissipate clouds, and in the process, found proof or orgone energy. List of problems 1) Grammar. The grammar, from the first sentence of the abstract, is terrible. For instance, data is plural, so it is correct to say ‘data were taken.’ 2) Again, all throughout the summary of the research, grammar and syntax are poor at best.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
