The present paper, the fifth in a series addressing the nature of the atmospheric medium energy required to replenish the kinetic energy of charge trapped in a conductor whilst subject to a gravitational field, presents conclusive evidence for the claims of the late Dr. W. Reich regarding the verifiability of the thermal anomaly he discovered in simple metal boxes and then magnified in special boxes composed of alternate dielectric and metal layers (which he termed Orgone accumulators, or ORAC, for short), and which he claimed was not a function of thermal energy per se. Our departure point was the reproduction of the indoor Reich-Einstein experiment. We were able to experimentally verify the thermal anomaly reported by Reich, and to formally demonstrate how it can be analytically and experimentally separated from the effect of convection air currents.

Next, through a series of outdoor experiments, conducted both in the shade and under full solar exposure, we demonstrate how the thermal energy registered inside both chambers of controlled ORACs cannot be accounted for by the blackbody spectrum for solar radiation (for which we propose a new physico-mathematical treatment employing the tools we have developed elsewhere in the form of the Aetherometric Theory of Synchronicity, AToS), nor by the experimentally determined blackbody radiation spectra for the controlled ORACs employed in these experiments. The results formally demonstrate that whatever is the nature of the energy converting into thermal energy to produce the verifiable thermal anomaly, its ultimate source is definitely solar, and yet it cannot be thermal energy, ie nonionizing electromagnetic energy. These findings run dead counter to existing variants of thermal ZPE (zero point energy) theories. A formal treatment of all the consequences of these findings - for such disciplines as aether science, thermodynamics, thermoelectrics, and quantum blackbody theory - is deferred to a subsequent communication.
