I do find these interesting but also think people are too quick to draw parallels due to their perceptual accentuation. Yes, they're oddities but
put some things into perspective. I'm not saying there's nothing to any of the allegations of prior knowledge but some of these are what you want
to see in my opinion. Here's some of my thoughts.
Why is NYC so popular and in so many forms of media? Could it be that it's the most populated city in the US, the most famous city in the US, the
most visited city in the US among other titles?
Why were the twin towers often chosen to represent NYC? Because pretty much everyone could associate them with NYC, much like The Space Needle is
synonymous with Seattle, The Capitol Building with DC, The Eiffel Tower with Paris and The Sydney Opera House with Australia..
The scene in X-Men with The Statue of Liberty and Twin Towers kind of cracks me up. The two are correctly represented in the comic as they appear in
real life. The fade between comic and real life seems to hint of something that isn't there besides the fact that they are both there. One has
smoke and the other doesn't. What is that predicting?
Why were the TT chosen in the comic to lie in ruins? Why was The Empire State Building chosen for King Kong? Why was The White House chosen in
Independence Day? Why was the Capital Records building chosen in The Day After Tomorrow? Recognizable buildings add more realism.
How could the X-Men have decided to write that thousands would die and many more injured? Is it really a stretch to assume that when an average of
50,000 people worked in the 2 towers on a typical weekday?
The X-Men don't even mention, at least in this video, how the TT got to lie in ruins. The closest it comes is showing an airplane in the air which
doesn't seem odd considering the fact that 3 major airports service NYC with combined passengers holding either the first or second spot for the
busiest in the country.
The Simpson's one kind of cracks me up too. Yes, I can clearly see that the TT look like an eleven. In order for that to make sense it would mean
the designers of them, over 50 years ago, planned the buildings to look like an eleven in preparation of the attacks on 9/11 and for The Simpson's
episode. I know, but the magazine cost $9 and it can't be a coincidence.
Kyred questioned if it's art imitating life. One could also question if it's life imitating art. If someone is going to attack something they're
going to do it to a recognizable place. Coincidentally recognizable places tend to be all over the place because they're recognizable. For fun,
where are all the references of The Pentagon getting attacked and The White House getting attacked and predicted in media? I don't recall seeing
these discussed previously.
