Anyway, have any of you noticed that this tower will be almost exactly five furlongs tall? That surely must be the reason why they didn't stop at 1000 meters...

Some kind of holiday for the building industry?


In the Netherlands, the entire building industry stops completely for 2 weeks every summer. No activities at all in that period.
Traditionally, this was thought the most efficient, after WW2. In modern economics, the situation is different but such kind of traditions is sometimes hard to stop.

My theory is that is not the core is getting slower but the wings are getting faster; and the reason is because they are much shorter now. As someone said some time ago, the difference of floors between core and wings shall not be very big (due to structural reasons), so maybe (this is just my assumption) as soon as the wings catch up the core everything will raise much faster.

The wings are much smaller than they were at the base. I guess eventually it will become only a core at some point. Basically it's what you are saying.
