I may have had some lunatic notions in my day, but I can assure you that none of them have been implanted or otherwise suggested by extraterrestrials. Not a one.
George Van Tassel, however, can’t claim the same, having been directed by aliens to build the Integratron.
A Lockheed aeronautical engineer and test pilot who had also worked elbow-to-elbow with Howard Hughes, Van Tassel was a recognized authority on UFOs, having reportedly been abducted himself. In 1947, he moved to Landers, north of Yucca Valley, and leased four square miles from the government, including the seven-story-high freestanding boulder called simply “Giant Rock.” There, he and his wife operated the Come on Inn cafe and the Giant Rock Airport.
