Foundation Headquarters - Central Division
Best regards to Frank Lloyd Wright and Buckminster Fuller...
Many people ask, "Why West Texas?" Well, first we begin with the socio-political analysis. The United States has the least influential government of the global industrial nations. The U. S. Federal government does not have supreme power to monitor actions of its States. It is granted the simple task of defending the continent against destructive invasion and coordination of human/health related services; it also happens to print the money and control the national fiduciary obligations. The Constitution grants particular legislative amnesty towards the States, which by majority agreement, created the Federal government. The practical applications of this sovereignty are most typically used in State-commercial transactions, wherein it stands to benefit the State to grant antitrust immunity to its vendors which in turn provide better prices and service, mostly along the lines of consistency, not effectiveness. An extension of this State sovereignty is directly tied with the arrangement by which the Foundation can operate as a federal tax-free institution.
Aside from the fact that the Foundation does not need the above services of defense against national intrusion (we have better weapons than the Defense Department) nor the human/health programs (our members are independently wealthy upon acceptance), the State of Texas (which overtly opposes Federal power) has granted the Foundation immunity from federal intervention, on the condition that the Foundation agrees to pay all State-required taxes (a minimal amount) and further agrees to act in the behalf of the State of Texas (and by pre-existing duty to the United States of America) in time of war or other aggressive climate. At the Federal level, we also have our own constituency of representatives who look out for the Foundation's best interests.
In relation to the real estate aspects of Foundation operations, there is a further requirement to own all territory from the center of the Earth to the upper atmosphere above represented by a conic-section of all definable space to be controlled by the Foundation. This is because the Foundation's technology development procedures sometimes require the use and application of all available territory for testing and evaluation.
The headquarters at Foundation - Central Division occupies 10000 square acres of land in an undeveloped region of Texas. The land is enveloped by a perimeter nucleostatic field which repels all forms of toxic radiation and targeted matter. Within the field, the area is monitored by defensive neodynum laser turrets only used against unauthorized intrusions (vaporization is standard). At the center of the concrete-surfaced area are the exposed top levels of the building which houses the Foundation Central Division. Forty-two of the building's forty-five floors are underground. A geodesic wall-structure is used to withstand the great pressures found at the lower levels. The building is designed as a closed-system with complete environmental support systems and a super-structure impervious to radiation.
Unique to the construction of the building itself is the fact that the underground complex was built from the top down. Neodynum lasers exhibit the useful trait of vaporizing matter when tuned to the molecular resonant frequency of the target material. Thus as construction of each successive lower level was commenced, the earthen material was eliminated without an additional landfill and allowed the unitized construction of each level to be completed individually. Additional substrata modules may be added as needed by the same technique.
At ground level are the general administrative offices and Conglomerate Division operation centers. These are the lowest security levels and are expendable in time of surface devastation or aversive climate. The top floor is a combined public communications center and aviation control tower. The outer offices overlook the paved surfaces and aerospace design lift area which brings projects for testing up from their secured storage below the surface. The floor partition at ground level serves as a bulkhead for closed-system operations; this barrier completely cuts off the lower floors from surface conditions and seals the cylindrical substructure from the external environment. The entrance to the complex is held secure by bio-scan access controls which read off an individual's (up to 10 bodies at once) energy patterns. Unauthorized entrants are warned of possible vaporization.
Access to the rest of the building system is through a series of IPG turbolifts with integral bio-scan equipment which will limit access according to current levels of authorization of the passenger. The next five floors are designed as biomedical facilities and research centers. Each level is tied in with the M-1000 system and communications center for interface with the external environment. The lower the floor in the building, the higher the security level and more closed-system adaptable the level becomes. At the bottom floor resides the M-1000 fluidic memory banks and plasma storage cells. This level is self-powered by integral IPG units built expressly for computational system power. M-1000 power comes from an individually dedicated 25 Megawatt IPG which is used for all major system components. Peripheral devices are line-powered by equally dedicated IPG units.
In the development of closed-system technology, much has been adapted towards the self-sufficiency of the Foundation complex. Some energy is derived from geo-thermal taps on the lower levels which is conventionally converted into electric power. The tap system is passive and provides free heat to the entire system. Air content is filtered and renovated through an environmental control system which selectively breaks down monoxides and toxic waste gases into their mononucleic components. Waste management is accomplished via molecular synthesizers which reorganize the structure of carbon-based material into either useable basic elements for recycling or byproduct fluid and gas combinations. A certain (classified) portion of the system has been dedicated to Excaliba development and is directly adjacent to the equipment lifts to the paved quadrant. Other similar areas are oriented towards MET development and transport technology.
