Subject: Steven Jones seminal paper on the destruction of WTC towers
Date April 24, 2008.
Project Humanbeingsfirst would like to publicly offer Kudos to Prof. S. Jones and his team for finally getting their extraordinary paper "Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction" published in this new open format peer reviewed scientific journal of Civil Engineering of Bentham Open publishing, and also [offer its] thanks [to] the reviewers for approving the controversial paper due to its immense import today. It is only in the clashing of old and new scientific viewpoints that paradigm shifts are achieved to make any progress from conventional thinking to new thinking. This paper represents such a paradigm shift, but not so much in scientific thinking, as in social thinking. Thus [a profound] thank you to the referees for having the courage to permit something new, unfamiliar, and what clashes with the mainstream theology of the powerful elite, to burst out on to the scientific and social [discourse] scene. It was precisely because of such courageous scholars that the Renaissance dispelled the Dark Ages. It appears to be a continuous struggle to keep dispelling dark ages, in all its forms.
Through this brief letter to editor for the same journal, Project Humanbeingsfirst offers the following heads-up that is rooted in the realism and cynicism of absolute power and its deceptive incantations in society as observed over the past seven years since 911. Lest the significance of this fantastic work be lost due to improper understanding of the social and power discourse prevalent in the society today, it is prudent to take it into advisement by scientists and engineers, for none of us labor in a social or moral vacuum – as much as many 'ubermensch' scientists would like to believe that they do. This heads-up appears in the essay: 'Bin Laden': Key enabler of “imperial mobilization” from which the relevant paragraph is reproduced below:
Indeed, Project HumanbeingsfirstTM 'clairvoyantly' predicts that the scientific study finally published in a peer-reviewed Civil Engineering online Journal only this past week, on how the three WTC towers (WTC1, WTC2, and WTC7) collapsed so suddenly at almost free fall speed as if it were controlled demolition, titled "Fourteen Points of Agreement with official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction", ever gains mainstream traction before the tipping point, it will be attempted to be blamed upon 'Bin Laden'. It will be asserted by newsmedia, by the Pentagon, the White House, and by the scholars and technicians of 'empire', that the only obvious candidate who had the capability to pull off such an outrageous controlled demolition on America, is 'Bin Laden' and 'Al Qaeeda'! When that transpires, I hope that these bastions of 'ubermensch' intellect will at least have the sense to get the FBI to first update their most wanted poster of Usama Bin Laden! Its snapshot, taken on April 22, 2008, is archived for the disingenuous "eureka" moment of posterity similar to the one displayed by the afore-stated Sunday NYT, and by the 2005 Iraq Study group, at: http://tinyurl.com/5swdoq.
In order to preemptively thwart such facile deflection, it would be prudent to urgently undertake a detailed scientific study of how each of the three towers could have been demolished through controlled demolition, as a continuation of extending the scientific understanding of the key hypothesis left standing in Jones' paper. Such a study might show what it takes to plan and execute a controlled demolition of this magnitude and fantastic precision, including identifying the precise location of cutter charges, the manpower needed to access and plant those cutter charges, the time frame within which to do it quickly (it certainly appears to be longer than a 7-hour period in a single day; in ref to WTC7) while not attracting attention, and how it could be pragmatically done at all without any of the native residents of these tall buildings noticing the clean-shaven turban-less foreigner-jihadis running amok up and down the towers laden with thermite explosives and knocking down walls and ceilings and drilling holes into the steel structure within to plant them.
Linking such a scientific case study to the published paper's [unexplained] discoveries of thermite, and the team's other discovery of [unexplained] very high temperatures at the site, makes a [more] complete quantitative and substantive [investigative] case, and is a rational and astute preemption of any asinine attribution of the felling of these tall buildings to any boogiemen [crashing into them with their flying machines]. There isn't much time before the fait accompli of crossing the nuclear tipping point is handed to the impotently bespectating world [in a new '911', this time a nuclear terrorist act in the most guarded superpower in history]!
