Judy Wood: Part of my research work has been to look at engineering in nature. How does nature design structures? And perhaps we can copy those designs and use them in engineering designs. And one thing that struck me about the World Trade Centers is that they are very much like trees. Core, outer core, inner core. A tube within a tube design, and that's what allows a tree to wave in the breeze.
James Fetzer: Marvelous!
Judy Wood: But also I started thinking about how do trees come down? They don’t start turning into sawdust, ya know, from the top down.
Judy Wood: With sawdust flying out.
James Fetzer: That’s a perfect parallel, because what we actually have with the twin towers is they're blowing up from the top. Each floor is blowing up. So the sawdust, turning a tree into sawdust from the top, is perfect! Judy, absolutely a perfect analogy!
Judy Wood: And recently I gave a talk at an engineering conference where I showed some diagrams of the towers being built and I showed, “If this were a tree and the Keebler elves cut out this big chunk out of the side here, to put their, for their little house, where their dwelling is. Would that affect the towers?” And everyone in the room could see, that no, the way the structure is designed, it can’t bring it down.
James Fetzer: And the little house would be analogous to the plane impact?
Judy Wood: Right, you could have several planes, the planes hitting the towers were like a bullet being shot into a tree.
James Fetzer: Excellent! Excellent!
