The Integratron is the Fusion of Art, Science and Magic
The Integratron is a structure designed by Ufologist and contactee George Van Tassel. He built the structure in Landers, CA – just 20-miles north of Joshua Tree – and claimed the structure is based on the design of Moses’ Tabernacle, the writings of Nikola Tesla and the telepathic directions he received from extraterrestrials from Venus. Tassel claimed this device was designed to be an electrostatic generator, capable of rejuvenation, anti-gravity and time travel.
According to Wikipedia:
George Van Tassel started hosting group meditation in 1953 in a room underneath Giant Rock excavated by Frank Critzer, a prospector. That year, according to Van Tassel the occupant of a space ship from the planet Venus woke him up, invited him on board his space ship, and both verbally and telepathically gave him a technique for rejuvenating the human body. In 1954, Van Tassel and others began building what they called the “Integratron” to perform the rejuvenation. According to Van Tassel, the Integratron was to be a structure for scientific research into time, anti-gravity and at extending human life, built partially upon the research of Nikola Tesla and Georges Lakhovsky. Van Tassel described the Integratron as being created for scientific and spiritual research with the aim to recharge and rejuvenate people’s cells, “a time machine for basic research on rejuvenation, anti-gravity and time travel”. The domed wood structure has a rotating metal apparatus on the outside he called an “electrostatic dirod”. Van Tassel claimed it was made of non ferromagnetic; constructed of only wood, concrete, glass and fibreglass lacking even metal screws or nails. The Integratron was never fully completed due to Van Tassel’s sudden death a few weeks before the official opening. In recent times some people who visit the unfinished Integratron claim to be rejuvenated by staying there, and experiencing sound baths inside.
The Integratron machine was started in 1957, and was financed predominantly by donations, including funds from the infamous Howard Hughes. Van Tassel died on February 9th, 1978 – but the Integratron has new owners, three sisters, who have been part of the restoration and maintenance of the structure and property for two and a half decades. Their focus, and intention has been to restore and preserve the structure while sharing it with people interested in its potential.
The Integratron is open to the public, and allows groups of people to experience quartz bowl sound baths, which induce “harmonic sound frequencies”, and generate a deep calming effect.
