Pool

 

in architecture, an artificial body of water, usually part of the architectural complex of a garden or park. The first pools, known in the countries of the ancient East and later in ancient Greece and Rome, had a rectangular form and were used primarily for washing; in the second half of the 16th century decorative pools appeared in Italy. Beginning in the 18th century, pools with fountains or reflecting pools of rectangular or more complex shapes became an important compositional element in the architecture of parks, primarily in geometrical parks, such as Peterhof, now Petrodvorets, and Versailles. Pools are widely used in contemporary architecture (decorative pools, wading pools in children’s parks, and so on). Covered or open structures containing water for swimming are also called pools.


Pool

 

a type of monopolistic association that is usually characterized by being temporary. Participants in a trading pool agree to accumulate and postpone the sale of a product in order to create a shortage and a markup in prices. Option pools are created to speculate in stocks, while patent pools are formed for the joint accumulation and exploitation of patents. Participants in patent pools agree on which inventions to use and which to hold back. Pools establish rules for the distribution of total expenditures and monopolistic profits.

What does it mean when you dream about a pool?

A pool contains water, which can symbolize emotions or the realm of the unconscious mind. Unlike the ocean, however, a pool of water is more manageable, more domesticated, and thus easier to deal with. Dreaming about a pool could be alluding to these meanings, though it could be something simpler, like relaxing around a pool or around a pool table. Yet another meaning of this term is “pooling” resources.

Pool

(dreams)
For many people, swimming pools are associated with summer fun, vacations, rest, and relaxation. Interpret your dream based on its content and see if any these positive feelings are being conveyed to you. All bodies of water represent our emotions and unconscious. The manner in which they are presented depends on the dreamer and on the details of the dream.
