-Airplane issues: There are several theories around the planes, some say they could fly as slow as they appear to be doing on film, some think they were remote controlled, some think they were not passenger aircraft at all, but were made up to look like they were, this is attached to the theory that there were no passengers, some think the airplanes had tanks attached to the underside for a larger explosion, some think there were no planes at all, they were drawn in, on the spot, in one of the largest, live, special effects ever to take place. (We will discuss this theory separately.) Finally, some argue that the cell phone calls people got couldn't have taken place as the technology wasn't on-board commercial airliners in 2001.
-Pilot issues: As I mentioned, some of the terrorists that took control of these airplanes were taking courses at American flight schools. None of those that were had impressive skills. Some of the instructors we're quoted expressing their dismay that these men could fly at all, never mind the rather difficult flying it took to successfully hit three of four targets in first attempts at flying a jumbo jet. This is distinct enough to be listed separately from Airplane issues.
-Architectural issues: There is currently a very large and growing group called “Architects for truth” that claims it is and was scientifically impossible for a building to be destroyed as it was, by fire. Therefore, they argue, these buildings were a controlled demolition.
-Controlled Demolition argument: Simply put, the argument is “these buildings were pre-rigged to be destroyed. The airplanes were subterfuge that was necessary or it would be too obvious that this was a false flag event. (How could you secretly rig three giant buildings to be demolished?) Evidence to support this theory are the several large explosions before the planes hit, (testimonial of employees of WTC,) the damage to the WTC1 lobby, (testimonial of firefighters,) explosions visible from the exterior as the towers collapsed, (testimonial of firefighters and other eyewitnesses,) and finally, after the collapse it was discovered that the remaining beams, jutting out from the rubble were sheared in perfect diagonal lines, in exactly the fashion one would use in a controlled demolition.
-False Flag argument: Regardless of how it came to be, this argument claims that it happened because it was supposed to. Perhaps some faction of the American government participated in the act, perhaps they just let it happen. Either way, it was a “business decision to keep the American military industrial complex going.”
-American complicity argument: see final image. They knew it was coming.”
-American duplicity argument: “They wanted it all along.” The Project for a New American Century was a politically based think tank established in the 1980's by Neoconservatives William Kristol and Robert Kagan. In 1997 they published a ninety page document entitled, “Rebuilding America's Defences.” I quote now from part five: “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor.” This is a very famous sentence referring to the need for something to “call people to arms.” Their explicit goal in this document was to recommend war in the middle east to control oil reserves, continue to expand military dominance and keep the economy of war moving forward. Somehow, they got what they wanted.
-The Strange Coincidences argument: This truly is a strange and publicly documented series of events. On September 11th 2001, the US military, NORAD, the National Reconnaissance Office, private and public law enforcement and related organizations were taking part in exercises that simulated things like, Russian/Nato wargames in the arctic, bioterrorism attacks, hijacked planes being flown into buildings. The purpose of this exercise was to test the preparedness of the American defence system in case of a terrorist attack on US soil. If you are confused, I'll reiterate. The government agencies involved in dealing with a situation like the one that occurred on September 11th, were doing a drill on September 11th that exactly mirrored the actual events taking place, in real time. (This is not actually a conspiracy theory. This was actually taking place. It becomes a conspiracy theory only through the reasonable expectation that by this happening, fighter planes were out of the area, confusion was created, delays occurred. This argument gets even spookier when we later discover that the exact same exercises were being conducted in the exact same fashion by British counterparts on the day of their terrorist attacks in London on July 7th, 2007.
-Discrepancies and “faked evidence:” Here the argument is, “the logic of their explanations is flawed.” For instance, if the two largest towers collapsed to dust, by way of the “fire caused a pancake collapse” theory, why did tower seven collapse when it suffered relatively minor fire damage and had a completely different construction style? Furthermore, the owner of the entire World Trade Center complex Larry Silverstein is on record as saying, “after we saw the damage caused by the other two towers collapsing, we made the decision that the best thing to do (with tower 7) would be to pull it.” He later tried to renounce this statement, saying that he never intended “pull it” to mean bring the tower down with explosives, he meant “stop fighting the fire and let it go down,” as in “pull the firefighters out.” Still, when you watch the footage of this collapse, it is picture perfect. So, we are back to our "controlled demolition argument."
No Airplane theory: this theory is most convincingly argued in a film called “September Clues.” Basically, this extremely complicated argument boils down to the following: There never were any planes, (we don't know what happened to the passengers.) The explosions were caused by missiles being fired from the ground or boats nearby. Then “black ops” specialists, cut into the feeds of the news agencies satellites, in a seven second delay, to superimpose pre-prepared “airplanes” into the pictures that then were “sent out” as live footage. The film makers go into great detail answering all the questions you're currently coming up with, as I said, this is probably the most complicated of the conspiracy theories. This theory may have stemmed from contradictory eyewitness accounts, some saw a small place, a silver plane, a white plane, a plane with no windows, a plane that looked like a missile, a missile and finally nothing, the building just exploded in the shape of a wingspan. The filmmakers also argue that the frame by frame analysis shows a perfectly shaped “nose” of the second plane exiting the other side and retracting. They argue that this was a mistake by the black op fakers.
Advanced Secret Weaponry theory: This argument states that, again, this event was a pre-planned, controlled demolition, but there is also evidence of Scalar weaponry being used and Thermite. Scalar weapons are a (so far,) theoretical “ray gun” like weapon that can do many magical things. It is said the use of scalar weaponry is evidenced by black helicopters circling the towers, emitting very bright lights and vehicles at ground zero being completely unharmed, other than they are upside down. (The list of things that it is said a scalar ray can do is long, but includes: anti-gravity, molecular disruption, super heat.) Thermite, a very real entity, it is an extremely hot chemical reaction used to cut, weld or otherwise melt metals. It is claimed it is visible pouring out of the still standing towers and then, after the collapses, rendering pools of remarkably hot molten metal that stayed hot for weeks. Firefighters, attempting to search for survivors were sometimes turned away from these pools, too hot to approach.
“Too weird for this world” theories: Some people think that the events that took place on September 11th were some kind of Illuminati, satanist, alien agenda human sacrifice. Probably most famously put forward by David Icke, the Bush family, descended from Nero (which is true,) is part of the same bloodline as Queen Elizabeth, (and all the Windsor's, also true,) but that they are actually shape-shifting reptilian aliens hellbent on enslaving mankind as a food source, (probably not true.) Although the Bush family is involved in some weirdness, in the shape of the controversial membership to organizations such as the Skull and Bones, or the Bilderbergers, or taking part in the secret meetings at Bohemian Grove, people can only speculate on what this actually means, if anything. One weird aspect that I find spooky because you can see it with your own eyes and although it's probably a coincidence, but what a coincidence, is the Cash Talisman theory. This is best explained in pictures, featured below. What is argued is that, by handling this money, day in day out, for years, we subconsciously, (cosmically?) made these events happen through our unconscious intentions. In the frames, by folding the American dollar bills of different denominations we can see a distinct series of events unfold on 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollar bills, viewed through the Washington arch near New York University, if folded "correctly"
However, what do we really have here, in this situation. We have one side, a designed subscribing to Islamic extremism and the teachings of a Philosopher named Sayyid Qutb which is excellently described in the BBC documentary series, The Power of Nightmares. On the other side we have a designed subscribing to Christian extremism and the teachings of a Philosopher named Leo Strauss. Perhaps you are thinking to yourself, “Yes, but we didn't kill thousands of innocent Muslims in a terrorist attack.” If you are thinking this, please put your head down and take a nap, you are way too ignorant to continue this conversation. We have, historically and easily, out ranked the killing by a margin of one hundred to one. One cannot make the argument that “this type of killing” is okay and “that type of killing” is not. One cannot say, “We are right and they are wrong,” with any kind of accuracy. The terrorist's don't have a trillion dollar budget, they can only fight their war as they can. We have a ridiculous advantage over them, technologically, militarily and monetarily. We have no advantage over them morally, despite what we believe. This is a perfectly fair fight, because war isn't supposed to be fair. The difference we should note is, although we say we are fighting a just war for freedom, or to spread democracy, they are fighting a war to spread the right to live as they please, (is that not freedom?) They are not trying to spread anything, they would rather we left them alone. I'm not siding with terrorist's, I'm also not siding with anyone, I’m a philosopher. These latter points all but fall away when I tell you that we are only here to consider whether or not what I’ve stated is true, not whether it is right or wrong. We seek social engineering, we have it as “designed subscribing.”
Let's now look at reasonable problems we can find, both in the official version of events and the varied conspiracy theories. As we established at the beginning of this chapter, we actually know only two things: those building are gone and something happened that made them “go away.” So what should we think about the details? Who should we agree with? What should we believe? Firstly and probably most importantly, let's realize that the existence of this question, in and of itself, is the problem. Why should we have to believe anybody? How come we can't know what happened that day? The answer is, of course, that the pieces of the puzzle don't all fit together. As time moves forward, the one side, let's call them Conspiracy Theorists, pull further and further away from the other side, let's call them “Official Believers.” A puzzle with missing or incorrect pieces doesn't make a pretty picture, in fact, in makes nothing. So, let's start again in simple question and answer form, the answers will come from me, reasonably and honestly. These are my opinions on the matter.
Q: Did airplanes crash into the towers?
A: Yes, I think so. All those passengers are still missing. I think it's reasonable to expect that if it was part of “the charade,” at least one of them would turn up and say, “I'm still alive!” in much the same way that the terrorists who weren't involved did.
Q: Did the airplanes cause the towers' collapse?
A: I can't answer that, but I seriously doubt it. I'm convinced that there was at least a secondary method to cause the collapse as we know it happened. Whether it was traditional explosives, scalar weapons or thermite, whether it was Al Queda or American “black ops” I don't know. However, I side with the hundreds (is it thousands by now?) of architects who claim the collapse that happened that day was unprecedented at the least and impossible at the most. I'm also of the opinion that the collapse of building 7, along with Larry Silversteens instruction to “pull it,” is highly suspect. Building 7 is a smoking gun. There was no reason to expect it to collapse. If they “pulled it” it had to be rigged. If it was rigged, it was done weeks in advance. If it was done weeks in advance, it is, by definition, a conspiracy. Pools of thermite were present, this is documented. Thermite does not occur naturally. Somebody put it there. Thermite is a smoking gun. If someone put thermite there, it is, by definition, a conspiracy. I also think we should call into question the numerous eyewitness (and earwitness, if I may,) reports of “explosions” happening before, during and after the buildings smouldered, but hadn't yet collapsed. Also, the apparent explosions visible as the buildings collapsed. Structural explosions are strategic explosions, if they were happening, it is, by definition a conspiracy.
A: I don't know. I do know that these buildings were very busy places and it wouldn't be uncommon for “construction workers” to be working there. Also, some WTC employees stated that there was “a lot of commotion, banging and screeching” heard from various floors, known to be vacant, in the weeks leading up to September 11th. All I know is this, steel framed buildings can burn and burn and burn, for weeks, without collapsing. Steel framed buildings do not collapse accidentally. If this type of building was going to do anything from the plane hitting it, (which, by the way, it was designed to withstand,) it would have a section that “fell over.” This is best illustrated when we watch the footage of the towers collapsing in slow motion. When the collapse begins, you can see how the top section, above the impact zone, starts to fall over sideways. Then, for some reason, dissolves upward in the same fashion as the rest of the building dissolves downward. This defies all logic and cannot be explained, by anyone, to my satisfaction. How is this even possible?
Q: Are you saying that America killed thousands of it's own people so they could advance an agenda?
A: No. I'm saying someone killed thousands of people in a way that isn't being fully or truthfully explained to us and it advanced a stated American political agenda. Moreover, I feel the results speak for themselves. I think it certainly would be easier for America to achieve what happened that day, than say, Al Queda. I'm of the opinion that there is a rogue element in the corridors of power in Washington. Even if Americans did this, it doesn't mean “America” did it. Unfortunately, for everyone, the world does not make this distinction. Obviously, we don’t wish to lump anything into generality.
Q: Complicity or Duplicity?
A: Probably both. We know Dick Cheney continuously refused requests to scramble fighter jets. We know George Bush was reading “My pet goat.” We know there were exercises taking place that mimicked the actual events and this caused confusion. We know that reports of imminent attacks were ignored. If all of these things are just the byproducts of the rampant ineptitude of modernity, (which isn't too much of a stretch,) it was the hallmark of all imperfect timing. However, things like the Project for a New American Century's report “Rebuilding America's Defences,” are a little too perfect a coincidence for my taste. Let's not forget, history is rife with false flags that various governments now admit to. Will someone, someday admit to this?
Q: Do you think Bush is a reptilian shape-shifter that wants to enslave the human race as a food source?
A: No. In my opinion, there are only two motivators for these very human people, money and power.
Q: Are there things that we can find out for certain?
A: Yes. We should be able to determine several things, if we are allowed to. It should be fairly easy to prove that these buildings were demolished by examining the left-over steel from the towers. (That was removed immediately and destroyed or recycled, or so we’re told.) Nevertheless, we should be able to do model experiments to test the “structural fire leads to collapse” hypothesis. We should be able to find out if the phone calls that took place onboard the flights were even possible at the time. We should be able to answer the question of whether or not the planes were capable of doing the flying as depicted in the films. I’m sure there are many other things I’m not thinking of.
The events that happened on Manhattan Island on September 11th, 2001 created the dichotomy that pushes our society over into hyper reality. After the dust had settled and the War on Terror begun, you now have a choice to make, go to sleep and have opinion roll over you or go insane and let opinion roll over you. Either you buy the whole picture or you buy none of it. If you buy the whole picture you're denying too much evidence to be correct. If you believe that any part of it is fishy then the whole deck of cards comes down. If you believe it's fishy, you have little evidence to prove your case, thus people think you're a crazy person. I'm not a crazy person, yet I think something is fishy. Where do I fit in? It seems the answer is nowhere. The Hyper-Manipulated Self is awash in a sea of opinion and you must choose. I'm asking you to think about the choice you are making.
Perhaps you've noticed the expanding divide that has grown in America. Be it between the faithful and the atheists, republicans versus democrats, or conservatives fighting liberals, the gap is getting wider, more pronounced, louder and more violent. Examine the health care debate of 2009-2010, with people showing up at “townhall” meetings brandishing machine guns. Consider those who argue that socialized medicine is communism. Listen to the argument on one side that says, “If we get national health care, next you'll be living in a concentration camp,” and on the other side holds up a sign that reads, “Get a brain, morans!” How could any rational thinking person pick either of these sides? We can't. It's stupid to do so. Yet, here we are, we've been forced into this dichotomy. The middle is falling out of everything. With no middle there is no balance. With no balance there are only extremes. Having to choose an extreme is not a solution, unless your goal is chaos.
So what is the goal? I don't mean the small, step-goals such as “think this about that,” these things, at this point, should be obvious, I mean the overall goal. I think the goal is exemplified to us in the results of the actions who give us these intentions. At the onset of this chapter I made the statement, No matter how you reduce it, the events that took place on Manhattan Island, September 11, 2001 were a direct result of the intentions of the American government. I base this statement on the complicity, duplicity and desires of the powers that be. The government may not have had an active role in the events that lead to the results they obviously wanted, but this only means they were lacking intention in action. If the prior intention of a small group leads to the action of others, we simply have collective intentionality. I'm not suggesting that the twin towers talisman worked, but rather that, it is no mistake that we find ourselves in the situation we are. It was socially engineered.
It is important that we recognize that this intention continues on in society, long after the engineers who drafted it and the politicians who enacted it are gone. We are not rid of a philosophy so easily, particularly when we become so invested in it.
They knew it was coming...
