Various Forms the Book Can Take
The "book" is an arrangement of independent modules
The book as presented in this website was written as a series of independent modules. Each numbered section can be considered to be an independent, self-contained subject.
These modules can be combined in a number of different ways, so there need not be any particular form the book takes.
The modules can be divided into technical and non-technical portions.
The technical portion of the book
ACCURATE DESCRIPTIONS AND DISCOVERY OF PATTERNS
....2.1: Progressive Floor Collapses in the WTC Towers
....3.1: WTC1 Accurate Collapse History
....3.2: WTC2 Accurate Collapse History
....3.5: WTC7 Accurate Collapse History
....2.2: Purpose of the NIST Reports
....2.3: NIST WTC1 Misrepresentations
....2.4: NIST WTC7 Misrepresentations
....2.5: NIST WTC2 Misrepresentations
....2.6: Bazant Misrepresentation of Collapse Progressions
....2.7: Block Misrepresentations of Collapse Progressions
....2.8: AE911T Misrepresentations of the Collapses
SEEMING ANOMALY IN PATTERN
....5.1: The Case of WTC1
....5.2: The Case of WTC2
....5.3: The Case of WTC7
The technical information is presented in 3 main groups: accurate records of the collapse processes and the discovery of pattern, misrepresentations of the WTC collapses, and seeming exceptions to pattern.
The technical portion of the book is the heart of the study
1) Accurate collapse descriptions and discovery of pattern
3) Anomaly in pattern
so it will act as the heart of any form the book takes.
Can the 3 groupings of technical information be presented separately?
The book revolves around accurate mappings of the collapse processes. The mappings will invariably form the heart of the book in whatever form it takes. The mappings reveal patterns.
It is impossible to address any issue involving anomaly in pattern unless existing patterns are recognized.
The most accurate and detailed mappings of the collapses possible also serve as a tool through which all claims can be fact-checked. It is the accuracy and detail of the mappings that allow one to spot mistakes and misrepresentations in the existing records.
No matter how one approaches the issue, accurate mappings must lie at the heart of the analysis. Claims cannot be directly verified or refuted without access to accurate detailed mappings of the collapse events themselves. Likewise, only through the discovery of flow and pattern can the subject of anomaly be addressed.
The non-technical portion of the book
ACCOUNTING FOR SCIENTIFIC REALITY AND LIMITATION
1: Science vs Subjective Viewpoints
4: How Scientific Institutions Can Be Blind To Contradiction
CONSEQUENCES OF MAPPINGS
6: Collapses Misrepresented as a False Choice
7: Testing the Thesis for Validity
There are many ways in which the non-technical portions can be written. They can be changed in order to accommodate more specific types of audiences, so there is no particular form the book has to take. The version presented in this website takes on a specific order but the order and presentation can be changed.
DIFFERENT FORMS THE BOOK CAN TAKE
Book for the average Joe or Jane
The current form of the book in this website is geared toward people of many interests and levels of formal education.
Book for the NIST
A new introduction and conclusion can be rewritten around the technical sections tailored specifically to the NIST.
Book for an average (university) physics professor
1: Science vs Subjective Viewpoints
can be rewritten. A university physics professor does not need to read much of the information in part 1.
Book oriented toward people in highly specific fields of study
Introductions and conclusions can be rewritten to be tailored toward any specific field of study.
Book oriented toward students in technical fields
The book can serve as an excellent teaching tool as it shows individual students how important direct fact-checking can be. Students are encouraged to avoid the pitfalls of simply believing in second-hand information.
In this sense, the book studies the phenomenon of groupthink in technical fields around a modern day historically significant event.
Book oriented toward students in non-technical fields
The book was written in a way that all claims made within it are verifiable. The reader is strongly encouraged to take nothing on faith. Technical claims can and must be fact-checked and all information is given to allow the reader to independently fact-check anything that is claimed.
But what about people in non-technical fields that are unable to use the tools given to check claims independently? Concerning technical claims, it may not be possible for some readers to understand the arguments presented as the heart of the book. A nontechnical reader is very much in the position of any average Joe or Jane or journalist as I describe them in parts 6 and 7. Can this limitation be overcome?
As demonstrated throughout these presentations, a person in this position is forced to choose a belief
whether they are aware of it or not. If all the claims made within the "book" are verifiable, why are so many people still forced to essentially choose a belief? Because they do not have the ability to use the tools available to verify individual claims. Unable to acquire direct knowledge that can be tested and retested individually, they are forced to adopt second-hand knowledge from another person or group.
For them, the question becomes one of who or what to "believe" or "trust". From which source should they adopt second-hand knowledge they do not have the capacity to re-check by themselves.
Book as a study in social psychology or a study in human perception
It has been verified repeatedly within the book that many people are quite vulnerable to believing in false technical claims. In this case it isn't so surprising that this vulnerability exists, but the degree to which it exists within university, professional and government establishments around a modern day historically significant event is eye opening.
In this sense the book is a study of human perception, knowledge, and understanding concerning the WTC collapse events.
Book as an historic record of events
The technical portions of the book provide the most accurate and detailed record of the collapses of WTC1, WTC2 and WTC7 available anywhere.
The technical portions alone, with very little introduction, serve as the most accurate descriptions of the building movement and behavior actually witnessed existing anywhere.
The book and website is for people who may wish to fact-check these underlying questions or wish to look at the collapse events in more detail to verify or refute various claims floating about or various suspicions they may have. The target audiences are those who are interested in a book and website like this and sincerely wish to look deeper into the collapse events themselves for whatever reason.
