Pyramid Power

After our last arbitrary stupid goal led us to Cassadaga I started fishing around for our next long weekend destination. Since it shared a similar Florida weirdness vibe I settled on Koreshan Park and put a note on my bulletin board to “visit KP next”.

“In 1893, the Koreshans, a religious sect founded by Dr. Cyrus R. Teed, moved here and built a settlement based on a commitment to communal living and a belief that the universe existed on the inside of the Earth. Living celibate lives, the enterprising Koreshans established a farm, nursery and botanical gardens.

“The park is home to 11 immaculately restored and nationally registered historic buildings erected by the Koreshans between the late 19th and early 20th centuries.”

Covid spikes and general busyness have kept us from getting away until this weekend. As JB was looking around for a hotel or AirBnB she saw some pyramid-shaped chalets that made her laugh.

“Pyramid power!” I said.

“What’s that?”

And so I told her the story of how pyramid power was a popular new age concept in the 1970s and 80s (and maybe even later?). What I remember most is the claim that pyramids could keep razor blades sharp.

After telling her about the pop phenomena of pyramid power she said “We’re staying there.”

So, a little more than we might usually spend on a weekend lodging, but tonight we’re sleeping in a pyramid.
