Time for something really different. Located about a two-hour drive outside of Los Angeles is the Integratron, one of the most unique and fascinating hidden gems within Southern California. The outside of the Integratron looks quite unassuming. It appears to be just a large white dome, with windows surrounding the building, but inside it is so much more.
The Integratron was built by NASA physicist George Van Tassel, who has stated that aliens gave him the instructions to build it. It is the only all-wood, acoustically perfect sound chamber in the entire United States. The building is located in the middle of the Mojave Desert, and though it looks like an observatory once you go inside you’ll find it is not that at all. Van Tassel has claimed that the building is located on a specific area of geomagnetic force, and when it is combined with the geometry of the building, it provides the power of healing and rejuvenation of living cell tissues.
All that sounds pretty fascinating, but what can you really do there? Well you can take something called a “sound bath” which is a 60-minute sonic healing session that is done with several different quartz crystal bowls that are played inside the Integratron’s resonant multi-wave sound chamber. For those that have tried the sound bath, the reported effects are that they leave feeling refreshed and even a little bit “buzzed.”
Also nearby the Integratron is “Giant Rock,” the seven-story boulder where Van Tassel himself lived for many years. You can also take a look at this interesting building, that served as his home, restaurant, and even a small airport. Van Tassel also used to hold UFO conventions at this location, which helped to raise funds for his Integratron building.
This fascinating and truly unique road trip would be made perfect by traveling there in your 2014 CLS550 Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You’ll enjoy the ride and relax in the opulent interior of the Mercedes-Benz as you cruise in style to explore this interesting destination.
