Temple of Thought

A temple reminds me of the Stoddard Temple, which Ayn Rand’s protagonist  Howard Roark built in her epic novel, Fountainhead. It was flat, it was spread out, it was meant to give humans the space to rise.  Then, I came across theories about reverberation of positive energy inside a dome-shaped structure.
