Default Occult clues at Legislature: researcher

<a href=""><img align="left" src="" alt="Manitoba Legislature Building" title="Manitoba Legislature Building" class="imgRight" hspace="30" height="339" width="150" /></a><h3><a href="" id="item2339">Occult clues at Legislature: researcher</a></h3>
<font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> What if a
well-known Winnipeg landmark was really an architectural talisman,
built to the specifications of the same "divine blueprints" found in
ancient temples? Not buying it? Read on. </font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial">University
of Winnipeg researcher Frank Albo has spent years collecting evidence
suggesting the floor plans of <a href="">Manitoba's Legislative Building</a> might be
more occult-based than anyone guessed.
</font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> "We have a
Rosetta Stone in the heart of the Canadian Prairies ... and it's
hidden," Albo said. "My academic career hinges on this, so I've been
careful to make sure I'm not inventing 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."
</font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> 'BLUEPRINT FOR THE PLAN OF GOD'
</font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> Albo had
hoped to write his thesis on how the Legislature matched the specs of
ancient pagan temples, but soon noticed recurring elements that didn't
fit the classical mould.

</font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> Among things
that kept cropping up were numbers -- five, eight and 13 -- found in a
numerical segment discovered by 12th-century mathematician Leonardo
Fibonacci, in which each number is the sum of the two preceding it. The
segment is found often in nature, and is considered by many to be a
"blueprint for the plan of God," Albo said.
</font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> "Even if you
go on the official tour, they'll mention how the number 13 keeps
appearing -- 13 chairs, 13 lights ... even the original height of the
Golden Boy," he said. "When I plugged those numbers into the floor plan
... it appeared the architecture adhered to this divine plan."
</font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> Digging
deeper, Albo realized the lieutenant-governor's reception room had
cubit (an ancient measure of length roughly equal to the length of a
forearm) dimensions matching those of King Solomon's inner sanctum. But
the cubits used were those favoured by Freemasons, a fraternal group
known for secret rituals and interest in the occult.
</font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> After Albo learned there were many Masons in the administration that built the Legislature, his thesis took a new direction.
</font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> His theories
were supported by subsequent findings -- hieroglyphic writings,
eight-pointed stars, and even the oft-celebrated Golden Boy himself.
</font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> "It leads me
to believe this building may have been built as a sort of talisman -- a
beacon of energy to harness these ideas that in ancient times were
considered divine," he said. "It follows what ancient architects
thought ... that if you build a temple in a city, the temple should
venerate the god of that particular city."
</font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> Albo has
found nothing similar in legislatures in other provinces, but said
Masonic images abound in U.S. government buildings and symbols. Fuelled
by the "Indiana Jones-esque" nature of his research, and a resurgence
in numerology spawned by The Da Vinci Code, Albo has presented his
theories to architectural experts, art historians and even Freemasons
all over the world.
</font></p><p><font color="#000000" face="Geneva, Arial"> He recently
met with Manitoba's minister of government services, and hopes to see
the province incorporate his findings into tourism initiatives. "We
need to highlight this building, so it's celebrated for it's worth,"
said Albo, who presents a discussion on his findings tomorrow night at
the Hotel Fort Garry.
