ONLINE LECTURE–Long Life, Other Life: Giant Rock, the Integratron, and Van Tassel’s New Channels

August 24, 2021 @ 1:00 pm2:00 pm

Free

ONLINE LECTURE–To honor the 68th anniversary of George VanTassel’s meeting with the space person (alien) Solganda at Giant Rock the Museum offers a free lecture explaining how this encounter led to the building of a Rejuvenation Chamber, decades of UFO conventions, and an entry in the National Register of Historic Places. Just outside of Giant Rock, on the night of August 24, 1953, former aerospace man George Van Tassel stated that Solgonda, a space person, visited him, took him upon his craft, and most importantly presented Van Tassel with instructions on how to build a life extension machine. On some sad undertone, Solgonda stated this was necessary because when humans become smart enough to “do something” with the knowledge they have acquired from their lifetime, death intervenes. This was not the first otherworldly encounter Van Tassel incurred at Giant Rock. Van Tassel devoted the rest of his life to completing his life extension machine, as directed. Originally named the College of Universal Wisdom Research Laboratory, the unfinished machine is better known as the Integratron. Daniel Paul’s lecture will provide an overview of George Van Tassel, the significance of Giant Rock for him, and the Integratron as a manifestation of what Van Tassel learned there.
