Just wanted to go inside and see if I could levitate with pure knowledge.

Golden Dome of Pure Knowledge

The men's and ladies' Golden Domes are the focal facilities of an ideal community for the development of full human potential, for expanding our knowledge of all the laws of nature, and for mastery of the Sidhis, including Stage III Yogic Flying capability for all, within a few generations. In the meantime, the twice-daily group practice acts help to end terrorism at its basis -- societal stress and tension. The Domes are "America's Peace Keepers" near the population center of the United States, providing a much needed addition to the existing principles of national defense.

Three Golden Domes

The 3 Golden Domes are at the Maharishi International University. Students levitate in the domes apparently. The mixture of wealthy new agers and overalled farm folk make for an interesting town.
