When standing it implies an upward impulse of self-confidence, a tendency toward spiritualization. It has also a phallic implication as all cylindrical forms have. The column relates to man as the sphere relates to woman. Whether resting on the ground or standing up, the column evokes the passage of time and this "... perspective ... becomes the expression of time, and time not as the passing of hours or days, calendar time or clock time, but mental, thought time, the time of experience and history..." (pg. 164). See the Aqueduct element.
