Has anyone ever heard of the Integratron in California ?

Meditating beside Giant Rock in 1951, Van Tassel claimed to have been transported astrally to a huge alien space ship orbiting the earth, where he met the all-wise "Council of Seven Lights." In 1952 Van Tassel reported he had been visited in the flesh by human-appearing, friendly space aliens from Venus, who suggested that he attempt to build a structure aimed at extending human life, to help people take advantage of the wisdom acquired through age. It was of course the Integratron, and it became his apparent obsession for the next 25 years. The structure actually was finished by 1959, but seemed completely non-functional; Van Tassel tinkered with it fruitlessly for the rest of his life.[citation needed]

It was supposedly a domed time/energy machine built partially upon the theories of Nikola Tesla. Created to recharge and rejuvenate people’s cells, at the behest of an advanced entity with which Van Tassel communicated telepathically, for a coming “Lord” from outer space, it was however not without its risks. According to Van Tassel's theory, an overcharge could make a person spontaneously combust -- or even explode. The wood structure lacks a rotating metal apparatus on the outside which was to be the functioning part. Now it is simply an empty all wood dome, lacking even metal screws or nails. In recent times New Agers have declared the structure a power spot and claim to be rejuvenated by staying there, and experiencing sound baths inside.[citation

If you notice, circular domes appear on top of of all places of worship.

At places of worship, these are used to channel positive energies whilst cults use these structures to call upon the opposite.

It wouldn't be surprising if this 'wooden dome' was a hot spot.

When setting up Masonic lodges and cults, areas which are considered to be 'gateways' are plotted according to a certain geographical chart which highlights places in the world that are 'considered' to be high in energy.

Yeah, that probably has nothing to do with the fact that large domes are easy to construct using old construction methods and places of worship needed to be as impressive as possible.

I'd love to see one of these maps that display regions of high energy, do you think my solar panels would work better at one of these spots?

Possibly.

But how about using electrical leaves instead of panels ?
Maybe it will get to the point where we will have fake looking electrical 'plants' instead of the fake plastic ones people have in their homes now.

I heard about paint that conducted electricity once. I wonder what happened to it ?
-------
ONLY God can make a tree, the poem says. But scientists are working on making artificial leaves that can produce fuels directly from sunlight, water and carbon dioxide, just as real leaves do. One day, the new leaves could help people heat their homes and drive their cars.

“If nature can do it, so can we,” said Gary Brudvig, a Yale chemistry professor who studies photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert and store energy from the sun. “We want to use the principles from nature to design an artificial leaf,” he said, adding that research groups around the world are working on the idea.

Has anyone ever heard of the pyramid in Bosnia ?


The Bosnian Pyramid, Visocica Hill, is the first European pyramid to be discovered and is located in the heart of Bosnia, in the town of Visoko. The pyramid has all the elements: four perfectly shaped slopes pointing toward the cardinal points, a flat top and an entrance complex. On top of the pyramid are also the ruins of a Medieval walled town, once the base of a Bosnian king Tvrtko of Kotromanic (1338-1391). Because of its similarities to the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, Mexico, it has been named the “Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun” ('Bosanska Piramida Sunca').

http://www.bosnianpyramid.com/

----------------
The term Bosnian pyramids has been used for a cluster of natural geological formations sometimes known as flatirons[1] near the Bosnia and Herzegovina town of Visoko, northwest of Sarajevo. The hill named Viso***269;ica became the focus of international attention in October 2005 following a news-media campaign promoting the idea that they are human-made and the largest ancient pyramids on Earth.

Scientific investigations of the site show that the so-called pyramids are natural formations and that there are no signs of human building involved.[2][3][4] Additionally, scientists have criticised the Bosnian authorities for supporting the pyramid claim saying, "This scheme is a cruel hoax on an unsuspecting public and has no place in the world of genuine science."[5]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bosnian_pyramids


--------------------





They might be natural, but they sure look like the ones in Egypt.
Sharp, right angles aren't natural in nature.

Hhahah sure, throw all logical reasoning to the wind. Never mind they're the easiest shape we know how to build, they're energy condensers, damnit!

Ley lines are everywhere, but their influence is supposedly higher in some regions than others.

Such as the location of the pyramids, Sedona, AZ, Coral Castle in FL, many old cathedrals, Chichen Itza, Peru and places where a lot of anomalous events occur.

Raymond, I was joking. Solar panels need photons to produce energy, specifically ones at roughly the visible light frequency.

I did not know you were joking, but I didn't want to insult you...
I thought it was a New Age kinda comment.

I know how PV panels work, I just wish they were more efficient.
I've seen them made into roofing shingles and I read once where they made paint that conducted electricity.

They are getting better.
But I still believe that zero point energy is possible.
Imagine having an electrical generator in your garage the size of a water heater.

A development like that would be greater than the printing press, gunpowder, the telephone or chocolate covered marshmallow Easter bunnies.

It would be a point in man's history that everyone would reference like WW2 or landing on the moon.

The shingles were shown in Who Killed the Electric Car; the guy who developed the batteries for the EV1 was developing those shingles I believe. And I remember reading about that paint as well but can't remember where.

You should never be afraid of insulting me, either I'll be wrong and realize that, or I'll explain myself and you could learn something new.

As for the power source in each home... Why do you think I chose to be a physicist? Personally I think aneutronic fusion will be the first major step, since it has applications beyond just energy production(it also works for propulsion). But I do think some device capitalizing on the Casmir effect or other zero point phenomena would be a game changer.

I think the paint was mostly proof of concept, it had the photovoltaic part down but it still also needed wiring beneath it to carry the electricity. That seems to be one of the drawbacks to current regular panels, they rely on those wires to carry the electricity, but the problem is larger wires also block light. One company fixed that by increasing wire count and reducing wire size, helping to reduce light blocked but increasing efficiency.

Another really brilliant solution was the photovoltaic "hairs" which cover a certain depth, mitigating the effects of wires blocking light.

Where did you hear that from ?

BTW, they found some new pyramids in Egypt !

This lady was a secretary to J Hynek. Hynek was in charge of Operation Bluebook. This was the organization that investigated all the UFO sightings in the US up until 1968 when the govt stopped the research.

She makes some claims that are hard to believe, but it is interesting considering her background.
