Giant Rock is a large freestanding boulder in the Mojave
Desert near Landers, California that covers 5,800 square
feet (540 m2) of ground and is 7 stories high. The rock
itself is said to be a major interconnection point of
Earth's ley lines.
In ancient times it was considered sacred by the Native
Americans of the Joshua Tree, California area.
In the 1950s it was a gathering point for UFO believers.
It was located on land leased by George Van Tassel, a
purported flying-saucer contactee and organizer of the UFO
conventions who built the Integratron nearby Gaint Rock and a
small airport which he operated from 1947 to 1975.
According to the Integratron web site, the Integratron
itself is built on top of a powerful magnetic vortex. The
Integratron is based on the design of Moses’ Tabernacle,
the writings of Nikola Tesla and telepathic directions
from extraterrestrials. The building is a 38-foot high,
55-foot diameter, non-metallic structure originally
designed by Van Tassel as a rejuvenation and time machine.
Today, tours and "sound baths" are available in its
acoustically perfect sound chamber.
On February 23, 2000, Giant Rock split in two, revealing
that it was made of white granite. It has been speculated
that this was due to people burning a fire directly
underneath the southern most aspect of the giant rock.
Native American prophecies say "the day when Mother earth
splits the stone open, a new era will begin."
