So the easiest way is to shuttle raw material up, and then produce the "cable" in space on the platform than let the cable "coil down" to the platform below.

Unfortunately this gives new meaning to being stuck in the elevator. Then again as I was typing this I heard Aerosmith in my head singing Love in an elevator. So who knows it could work.

I too offer 100% support for what its worth, but with all do respect even though they have the imagination to accomplish it doesnt mean they have the means. A project of that immensity would require more than one nations resources( Im basing that purely on speculation) and didnt they talk on several occasions about building large skyscrapers which they have yet to construct.
I also think a building called Sky city was their idea as well.
Back in 1993 I watched a beyond 2000 series wher they talked about wanting to build a 7 mile high pyramid.
Look If anyone can do it it is definitely the Japanese, they have the WILL, the MOTIVATION, and SAKI!!! So yeah I 100% beleive they can do it but I dont know, it seems to me that from an engineering stand point anyway they have (attention deficit disorder). They jump from one great idea to the next never quite finishing what they started.
