From a Tourist's Pamphlet Received While Visiting Bitlet's Tower
"Zeno's Effect" was discovered in 1943 by Harold Vasquez at the University of Lisbon, Portugal. In essence, given a specific chemical composition and a specific catalyst the compound would split itself endlessly in geometric recursion. The effect, while interesting, had no evident practical use.
In 1957, however, the famous Carson Bitlet designed the ultimate tower. The base of the tower, shaped like an extremely tall and narrow pyramid, while impressive, wasn't remarkable. However, the crown of the tower was entirely unique. Together with chemists J.K., L.O., G.T., Q.M., P.D, O.S. and Vasquez, himself, Bitlet oversaw the creation of a new type of building material. By channeling and controlling "Zeno's Effect", they designed a material and process by which the building would continue to build itself appearing to grow infinitely upward.
The top of the tower continued the pyramidal shape started below it and built itself to a needle's point. The point was only an apparent end to the tower, however, for following Zeno's Effect the tower continued to build upward even though it was no longer visible to the human eye.
It was science that completed the Tower of Babel.
