masonic symbolism, perhaps? after all, 9/11 was a false flag operation.
OH YES, the MASONS.
While I do believe there are things about 9/11 that don't add up; it would be wise not to jump to conclusions. What's next? You're going to say One World Trade Center is a Masonic name because of "One World"? Nevermind that the North Tower had the same name.

i said that "perhaps" it was masonic symbolism. i don't think it's jumping to conclusions to say that 9/11 was a false flag operation, though, as there's an overwhelming amount of information that supports the claim. anyways, i don't want to start an argument over it; i know how angry people can get over this subject.

Well, I just don't like thinking that it is a "masonic" building that replaces the North Tower. That is what makes me angry.

I think that in order to find the truth, one [everyone] must separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak.
I wasn't trying to start an argument either; I'm not angry. Sorry for the, uhm, contempt...

I would think of an octagon but remember that is a square which gives place to a smaller one, the difference is the angle.

The octagon is just the transition from the base to the top, not really the building's shape.

I don't know for sure but imagine it was the easiest way to have a symbolic building of equal height and side profile as the original towers yet not have to replace the same floor area overall. The two originals were big buildings having the same floor area at the top floor as the ground floor. I know it must be noted somewhere here but not sure how the new WTC complex compares in floorspace to the old WTC. If similar it's because there are more new tower buildings.

Yes, that seems to be the general consensus. Unfortunately, I cannot find any official documentation or quotations that would otherwise prove or disprove such a claim. Are you aware if any exist?

Yes I am. It was in the paper when it was redesigned. And I've read it plenty time online. I could look for but it might take sometime.
