landmark
Integratron
The Integratron is a structure designed by Ufologist and Contactee George Van Tassel who claimed that the structure is based on the design of Moses’ Tabernacle, the writings of Nikola Tesla and telepathic directions from extraterrestrials. This one-of-a-kind 38-foot high, 55-foot diameter, all wood dome was designed to be an electrostatic generator for the purpose of rejuvenation and time travel. It is built on an intersection of powerful geomagnetic forces that amplify the earth’s magnetic field. The Integratron is open to the public for Soundbaths - a sonic healing experience.
