Coordinates: The Integratron is a structure designed by George Van Tassel claimed to be capable of rejuvenation, anti-gravity and time travel. He built the structure in Landers, California (near Joshua Tree) supposedly following instructions provided by visitors from the planet Venus. The Integratron machine was started in 1957, the structure was erected in 1959. The structure was financed predominantly by donations, including funds from Howard Hughes.
Following Van Tassel's death in 1978, the building was owned by a series of individuals (and was left in various states of disrepair) before sisters Joanne, Nancy, and Patty Karl purchased it in the early 2000s. The sisters promote The Integratron as an "acoustically perfect structure," give tours and offer "sound baths" they describe as "...meditation-like sessions accompanied by tones from quartz bowls."
George van Tassel was a former aircraft mechanic and flight inspector who moved to California's Mojave Desert to operate an airport and inn. While there, he began meditating under Giant Rock, which the Native Americans of the area held to be sacred. In August 1953, Van Tassel claimed that he had been contacted both telepathically and later in person by people from space, who gave him a technique to rejuvenate human cell tissues. Van Tassel, acting on these instructions, began constructing the Integratron in 1954. Construction costs were partly paid for by an annual series of successful UFO conventions, the Giant Rock Spacecraft Conventions, which continued for nearly 25 years. Construction of the main structure of the Integratron was complete circa 1959, but Van Tassel continued to work on the device until his sudden death in 1978.
George Van Tassel - When Stars Look Down (1976): The purpose of the Integratron is to recharge energy into living cell structure, to bring about longer life with youthful energy. This has been the goal of many people, since Ponce De Leon started looking for the fountain of youth.
Our effort here, in this giant machine, is not the first idea of its kind. It is the first time that other research efforts have been brought together and applied simultaneously.
The work of Georges Lakhovsky, Dr. George Crile, Barnothy, Oneil, Tesla, Smith, and many others, is being combined by us in a basic research to make the principles work. The only new thing we have added to their research is to make the application of three principles occur instantly and simultaneously.
Lakhovsky's Multiple Wave Oscillator (U.S. Patent Number 1,962,565) was used by him, in association with many doctors, to correct cellular malfunctions and accumulations, in many patients. His principle is opposite to control of radiation of radio and television transmission. He spread his radiations over a multiple wave, while television and radio confine it to channels and kilocycles to prevent overlap. Lakhovsky used a field in which every tissue, organ, cell, and nerve responded in resonance between 10 cms. and 400 meters. This corresponds to frequencies of 3 to 750,000 millards per second. The harmonics extended from 1 to 300 trillion vibrations per second. No harmful side effects or aftereffects were ever noted. In his book "The Secret of Life", first printed in 1939, Lakhovsky detailed the many cases, functions, and results. His Multiple Wave Oscillator took from one application to three weeks of daily applications to achieve its outstanding effects. Our frequency control makes these periods instant in a one shot application. Our basic research is Lakhovsky's side effect of rejuvenation.
Lakhovsky established that "every living cell is essentially dependent on its nucleus which is the center of oscillations and gives off radiations." By the same token the sun is the centre of our solar system, and life could not exist without it giving off radiations that set up oscillations in living matter. Everything on the earth has been proven to react to sun spots and solar prominences.
Energy principles work on the same basic universal laws, be they atoms, cells, or solar systems.
The wet battery in your car operates on an acid electrolyte. The dry battery in your flashlight operates on an alkaline electrolyte. The separators in your car battery are a semi-permeable matrix.
The DNA structure is a caduceus coiled in opposite directions. The filaments in the nucleus of a cell exhibit coil and plate configuration. These are microscopic electric circuits that work with the cell electric capacity as oscillators. Cilia in the lungs and respiratory tract are antennae that extract radiations from the air and transmit this energy to the cells in the blood to be conveyed throughout the body.
We are electrical creatures using a bio-chemical body to exist in a electro-chemical environment. We know that in highly diluted solutions certain chemical compounds are disassociated with the result that electrical charges appear, equal, but of opposite polarities. Sodium chloride for an example is disassociated as sodium with a positive charge and chlorine with a negative charge. The body fluids are a saline electrolyte with cells in suspension.
Every microscopic part of a cell emits radiations according to the atomic structure of its makeup. Like batteries, cells run down, bodies run down, and the energy loss is manifested as aging.
The Bible says Adam lived 930 years; Seth, 912; Enos, 905; Cainan, 910; Mahalaleel, 890; Jared, 962; and Methuselah, 969 years. Then after these people of the race of Man mated with "the daughters of men" the life span fell off to 120 years according to Genesis 5:5 to 6:3.
After years of Pyramid Generator energy research, there is no question in my mind that VIPs were brought back from death in the sarcophagus of the King's Chamber. The sarcophagus and the King's Chamber were constructed of granite. Granite, because of its matrix of feldspar, mica, and quartz crystals, exhibits a radiation caused by the pressure of the matrix on the quartz crystals known as the piezo-electric effect. Granite was called "spiritual rock" by the Egyptians because of the auric radiation. The energy generated by a pyramid in a vortex is neither electrical nor magnetic as such. It is composed of "this other energy" which radiates life property effects. The energy is everywhere in a static state, and serves in this respect as an insulator and separator while it remains static. When it is activated by thought, as in a prayer, or by resonance in electromagnetic fields, it reverses its insulating qualities and becomes an infinite conductor.
It is this energy that will respond to our control in the Integratron and integrate energy into the cell structure of the body.
This is no reason why people today cannot live as long as Methuselah. I am convinced that he used the Great Pyramid to live so long without aging.
The DNA configuration, the caduceus coils, the Emerald Tablet principles, and the pyramid vortices, all exhibit a method of life energy activity.
We have put in 18 years of endless effort to prolong life without further aging. We are anchored here on dedicated property. We are not going to go anywhere. It is our intention to be able to regenerate our world leaders, our world humanity and defeat "the last enemy to be overcome -- death." It is a thousand times simpler in research than the effort it took to put men on the moon, but we need an ingredient we cannot make and that depends on other humanitarians. We are approximately 82% finished, with new methods already being apparent from the associated researched being conducted by others verifying our earlier efforts.
Jeno M. and Madeleine F. Barnothy, of the Biomagnetic Research Foundation, in Evanston, Illinois, have contributed outstanding results in magnetic research with everything from enzymes to rabbits. They showed retardation of aging and 30% increased activity in research conducted on mice, whose cell structure is like humans.
Nikola Tesla, and others, showed that high voltage static electricity caused ionization. This causes disassociation of structure and charging of particles in positive and negative polarity effects.
Dr. George Crile, in a fabulous research that he devoted his life to, established that every living cell was a battery, a transducer, and a condenser. In his book "The Phenomena of Life", printed in 1936, he states, "Electricity is the energy that drives the organism." He further states, "It is clear that in the second half of life the electrical potential of the elderly patient as a whole or of this or that organ, has been very much reduced and that by so much, the margin of safety has been dangerously diminished." Hugo Fricke, working with Dr. Crile in his laboratory, found that the film which surrounds red blood cells is on the order of 3/10,000,000 of a centimetre in thickness and that this lipoid structure has an electric capacity of high order, viz., 0.8 microfarad per square centimetre. Dr. Crile further stated, "The unit of structure and of function of the living organism is the cell. Plants and animals are disperse systems of cell suspension. The nucleus of the cell is comparatively acid. The cytoplasm of the cell is comparatively alkaline. The nucleus and the cytoplasm are separated by a semi-permeable membrane. Therefore the cell is a bipolar mechanism or an electric battery, the nucleus being the positive element, the cytoplasm the negative element."
These cell batteries of the body are what we are planning to charge with the Integratron. Each cell has a capacity like the battery in your car. The human body is composed of over 100 trillion of these cells. Our principle of operation is as simple as applying Lakhovsky's multiple wave oscillation to Barnothy's magnetic fields saturated with Tesla's ionization to charge Dr. George Crile's cell batteries. Our method of control is through a time function of frequency from zero time to infinity. This is our contribution. The schematic circuitry is a hundred times simpler than in a television set.
After van Tassel died, there was a proposal to turn the Integratron into a Disco, but these plans were never realized. New owners now operate the Integratron as a tourist attraction and offer "sound baths" where groups of people are "exposed to harmonic sound frequencies" produced by quartz bowls, claimed to have a deep calming effect. The Integratron website claims "it is the only all-wood, acoustically perfect sound chamber in the U.S."
