Best to call 760.364.3126 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask if there is an opening | A fusion of art, science and magic, the historical structure is a resonant tabernacle and energy machine sited on a powerful geomagnetic vortex in the Mojave Desert. Creator, George Van Tassel, 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. The location is an essential part of its functioning. It was built on an intersection of powerful geomagnetic forces that, when focused by the unique geometry of the building, concentrate and amplify the earth’s magnetic field. Magnetometers read a significant spike in the earth’s magnetic field. Integratron is privately owned. The focus is to restore and preserve the structure while sharing it with people interested in its potential.
