Occult on the Prairiesby Judi McLeod, Canadafreepress.com

Manitoba Premier Gary Doer sees things at the office, and not all of them are political. It turns out that rather than the premier seeing things that really aren't there, Manitoba's legislature could be a manifest grand symbol of the occult.
University researcher Frank Albo is searching out the historical definition of the occult as it applies to Manitoba's stately legislature.
Not only was the austere building designed and built by members of the ancient secret fraternity known as the Freemasons, Albo believes they made the Manitoba building their masterpiece.
The blueprint of the Freemasons seems to be global. Many writers have concluded that the City of Washington, DC was intentionally planned to promote an occult agenda.
Pyramids, pillars and Numerology are apparent in nearly every official building in Washington and you don't need a magnifying glass to find them.
According to crystallinks.com, "the floor plan of the Capitol Mall was designed from the blueprint of the floor plan of a Masonic Temple--an East-West triangle attached to an unfinished triangle. The Lodge Master would reside at the cap of the triangle, where the Capitol stands today."
The Masonic messages are there, if one wants to find and discern them. According to seekers, there is no question that it's there, right in the streetscape. The intersections of Massachusetts Ave., Road Island Ave., Connecticut Ave., Vermont Ave. and K Street NW form a five-pointed star, they say.
The Grand Lodge of British Columbia and the Yukon is advertised on the Internet, but nobody knew about Manitoba until 2001.
These are the signs at the Manitoba legislature traced by researcher Albo: Numbers like recurring patterns of five, eight and 13 throughout the building's design, for example, might point to hidden meanings in the bricks.
"Those numbers are part of the famous mathematical sequence discovered by the 12th-century mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci. The pattern, based on each number being the sum of the two that preceded often appears in natureand is considered by many to be a divine blueprint." (CTV.ca).
In architectural design, the Manitoba building is a copy of King Solomon's Templewhere the legendary Ark of the Covenant is said to have been buried and has been a subject of feverish pursuit down through the centuries.
Rather than being the fanciful imagination of the researcher, the similarities to King Solomon's Temple are eerieright down to the most significant room in the buildingand the one room normally not open to the public.
The lieutenant-governor's reception room, Albo says, mirrors precisely in dimension the temple's inner sanctum, known as the Holy of Holies, the actual sight where the Ark was said to have been kept.
Although John Q. Public may not have been aware of it, the building was intended as some sort of talisman for divine energy. Construction of the building, completed in 1920 ran close to a decade and ran three times over budget.
There was even significance about the date the legislature was officially opened to the public. July 15, 1920 was also coincidentally the very day that the planets Venus and Mercury were in alignment.
Discovering the symbolism of the Manitoba legislature coincides with the popularity of the book, The Da Vinci Code, opening up the possibilities of a boost for Manitoba tourism.
"We have a Rosetta Stone in the heart of the Canadian Prairies and it's hidden," Albo told the Winnipeg Sun.
Albo says his academic career hinges on his recent find, making him careful not to invent things. "But the coincidences start to add up to the point where you go, `This is amazing.' Now the coincidences have so overwhelmed me that I'm mission-bound to find out what's going on."
Albo's search lured him away from his books to a personal tour of every nook and cranny in the building, during the past four years. Because he's been on site, he's met everyone from security guards to the premier.
Lucky for him, Premier Doer is another believer.
"Everytime I walk into this building I see something I haven't seen before," he said, displaying an eagerness to find out what meaning lies behind it all.
"Maybe we'll have the next Da Vinci Code written out of this building."
Meanwhile, you never know what you might find in Canada's vast, flat Prairie country.
