The Merkaba Portal was a three dimensional star made of metal and rotated on its lower tip. People could enter the star, called the Merkaba Portal, and be rotated. This MerKaBa was a vehicle for a person's, "Ascension as a Light Being in human form." But that ascension could only occur on December 12th. At other times it was just a ride.

The sign for the Merkaba Portal was at its base and read, "Merkabaportal." The pivot was in the center of spreading steel supports.

A woman, wearing roses in her hair, watched children enter the Merkaba Portal rotating star.

A closer view of the Merkaba Portal. Notice LED lights outlining its edges, doubtless more dramatic at night.
