Twin Towers

Tribute in Light (Wikimedia Commons)

"Although the two towers have disappeared, they have not been annihilated. Even in their pulverized state, they have left behind an intense awareness of their presence. No one who knew them can cease imagining them and the imprint they made on the skyline from all points of the city. Their end in material space has borne them off into a definitive imaginary space. By the grace of terrorism, the World Trade  Center has become the world's most beautiful building — the eighth wonder of the world!"
Jean Baudrillard, The Spirit of Terrorism and Other Essays
