DAVID LIPNOWSKI / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS files A meditation group sits in the Pool of the Black Star at the Manitoba legislative building.

Your Dec. 28 story Pool of the Black Star a spiritual oasis mistakenly states the pool was designed to be a Hermetic temple. In fact, the Pool of the Black Star was reputedly modelled after the sacrificial altars of ancient Egypt.

The Black Star is symbolic of the Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar and is located directly below the Golden Boy, who represents Hermes Trimegistus. One could argue it is the Legislative Building, with all its Greek, Egyptian and Mesopotamian icons, that was designed to be a temple, and a Masonic one at that.

The article suggests their meditations may have generated certain energies that would influence the many government officials who work for the citizens of Manitoba in the Legislative Building. It remains to be seen what kind of impact these "spirited energies" will have on the performance of Manitoba's politicians in 2014.
