In 1954 and 1955, Reich published two volumes of his follow-up to the Orgone Energy Bulletin entitled CORE (Cosmic Orgone Engineering), comprising a total of 344 pages. On the inside cover of each volume, Reich included the following note:

"CORE (Cosmic Orgone Engineering) continues the function of its predecessor, the Orgone Energy Bulletin (vols. I-V, 1949-1953). CORE is the official organ of the ORGONE INSTITUTE which is devoted to Basic Research in the Realm of the Primordial Cosmic (Pre-atomic) Energy. CORE deals, among other things, with: Pre-atomic Chemistry (Oranur Chemistry); Drought and Desert Research; Removal of DOR clouds, Rain-making and Fog-lifting with the Cloudbuster; Functional Orgonometry; and the Bioenergetics of Human Emotion as far as human character reactions are involved with the above mentioned cosmic functions."
