Book as a Mirror

Book as a Mirror

Responsibility for passing on history in accurate form

All claims made within this book are verifiable by the reader or anyone else. The author never requests that the reader "believe" what is written. The book is written in such a way that belief is never required.

Demonstration and verification is the language in which the book is written, not belief. Direct verification though active fact-checking has to be the spirit in which the book is read to be understood in its entirety.

Just as "belief" is strongly discouraged, so approval or disapproval has little meaning in this case. Observations and measurements do not require anyone's permission to exist. They do not require any consensus to exist, either.

The reader's responsibility

The ability to present all claims as directly verifiable places a level of responsibility on the reader. The reader is no longer a passive recipient of information over which he can casually choose to "believe" or not "believe". When constructing sequenced mappings directly from the visual record and presenting them in verifiable form, I am not then required to "sell" such a set of results to a passive reader.

This is not a product and I am not a salesman. These are the most accurate, detailed mappings of collapse behavior available anywhere. It is not only my history, it is yours, too, and you are as responsible for passing it on in accurate form as anyone else.

Nobody elected me as caretaker or preserver of the communal history. It is not my special social responsibility to preserve it for anyone, to sell it to anyone, nor do I need to convince anyone of any part of it.

I did my part in this work only because it was clear that others have not done it and had no intention of ever doing it. My responsibility as I understand it was to use my abilities to present the most accurate history possible in a form in which every claim can be directly verified or refuted through ones own direct initiative.

Book as a Mirror

In this sense the book is nothing more than a type of mirror. It is each person's history shown back to them. Some people may not recognize this history and may then accuse the author of doctoring it.

As a type of mirror it is nothing more than the reader meeting details of their own history, perhaps for the first time. The reactions induced are ultimately a relation between the reader and the collapse events of 9/11/01, and have little to do with me, the author.
