As many know, there is a core group of people who believe the 9/11 attacks were perpetrated by the US government or its agents. While the reasons to support this conspiracy are spectacularly convincing in some cases, there is a single gargantuan flaw that conspiracists seem to consistently ignore.
(I know this topic has been debated ad nauseam, but it’s one of those things you can’t really ever get tired of.)
The arguments I hear most often are:
1. Aluminum planes can’t penetrate the steel structure of the former Twin Towers.
2. The collapse of the Twin Towers — imploding on itself — could only have occurred if the buildings had been rigged with demolition.
In support of the strength of the Twin Towers, they were almost as strong as the Man of Steel. The engineers built them to withstand a Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale. Translation: The Towers were built to withstand 139-mile winds.
This 2×4 got impaled into concrete after a tornado. It’s all about the angle of penetration. Btw, we’re talking about the planes, not the, er, other thing.
As for #2, skyscrapers are designed not to topple over but to implode on itself. A skyscraper is, for all intents and purposes, a massive honey-comb. That means the infrastructure of the Twin Towers were 95% air. So even if the top had collapsed unevenly, the remainder of the building would have conformed to the implosion design.
Getting back to the original point. The #1 reason conspiracies fail is due to the definition of a conspiracy: It requires at least two people or entities to carry it out.
The magnitude of perpetrating a 9/11 event would have taken hundreds of people, if not thousands. The odds of any single person spilling his beans is astronomical.
In fact, this is also the #1 reason why most major conspiracies fail — period! — including the moon-landing hoax.
Speaking for myself, I’m sure I wouldn’t be able to keep silent if I were involved in a global hoax. While I like a good conspiracy, I particularly love the ones that can’t be debunked so easily.
However, there is one conspiracy that can’t be ignored. The Art of Yoga. Living in a society where we are continuously thinking about, or being reminded of, possible terror threats can take its toll on us psychologically and, as a consequence, physically. The mind cannot live without the body. Didn’t Morpheus say that?
The remedy is either to spend a fortune on therapy or spend a fraction on Yoga and get much more than a person who is paid to hear your complaints. Integral Yoga Studios is the premier Yoga destination to unwind — literally.
In a future post, I will fully introduce this gem and all the glorious things they have to offer. In mean time, may the Schwartz be with you.
