I keep thinking that there is no way this is being built without plans to open the country for tourism and probably huge system changes ..

But, there is no doubt about the tourism plans

For that sake, they would have to re-think the law system, to make it serve humans, rather than gods. Gods come and go. Already over 2 lakhs of gods have been forgotten by humankind, over the past 1 lakh of years.
But I don't think they will look for some stats info, to find out how religions look like from a scientific POV.

No. Not yet... the JT is the first phase of the project, other surrounding projects are part of the second phase which will start a bit later

Yes. thanks to a tapering that causes the tower to have a 330m spire.

Design wise, this tower is amazing, best in the world however function wise the tower is not very good at all, I guess it doesn't matter though because this tower is for show not for actual use.

Indeed, there are 2 important elements of valid architecture in this tower. However, you don't know which ones, if you say it's the best in the world design.

Actually, It doesn't. According to Wikipedia, KT will have 319,000 m2 (if its Correct) and the 1WTC has 325,279 m2. So... no.
Also, just because its almost twice as tall, doesn't mean it will have almost twice as much Floor space. as i said many times before, it has a 330meter Spire!
