The Eiffel Tower Analogy

Eiffel Tower

The World Trade Center towers were extremely robust structures, with an inner core formed by 47 box columns each a yard wide, fabricated of steel 4 inches thick near their bases. These columns were abundantly cross-braced and anchored directly onto bedrock. The cores got thinner nearer the top, so that the lower floors were heavier and sturdier, than the lighter top ones.

One can imagine a stripped-down and exaggerated model of the towers would look something like the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.

Now imagine, you vaporize 2 levels of the shaft two thirds up (as supposedly the plane and the fires did on the WTC) and let it fall. Do you sincerely believe that the rest of the intact lower structure would completely and instantly collapse in a symmetric fashion if that top section fell back on it?

Completely: Would the weight of the falling top bit of the tower, containing the massive 4 legs in the Eiffel tower, completely disintegrate?

Instantly: Would the rest of the sturdier and intact lower tower offer no resistance whatsoever and allow for a frictionless fall?

Symmetrically: You’d expect the dislocated top part to swivel to one side once it collides with the lower floors instead of disintegrating the remaining lower shaft which is in the path of most resistance.

I find this scenario difficult to imagine for the Eiffel Tower, and even less likely in the case of the Twin Towers. And twice on same the day!

This is precisely what we are told to believe happened to the Twin Towers on 9/11.

In the extreme case, that we were to lift that top section and thrust it downwards with force from a higher altitude, I still don’t see that happening.
