I'm pretty sure the light is coming from inside. And the diagonal beams are steel bracing in addition the the reinforced concrete structure. They are what make this tower one of the strongest skyscrapers ever built. This thing will stand forever.

Narrow minded indeed. Have you read this one's posts in the past? This hypocrite is living in denial.
