A portal/tower to heaven. Extra? biblical sources say that it got so tall, that when carrying stones to the top, it took a year. And they mourned more for a fallen rock than a person that fell.

And of course you got modern day people saying cern is a modern tower of babel. The stories are definitely interesting... sometimes distracting.

It was the tower of Solomon. If you rewrite the Bible passage about it to say 'all peoples" will be dispersed to 'all jews' then it makes sense as that's what happened

How so

NoGi made reference to it, but he failed to grasp the meaning.

There are a lot of layers to the story, but one of them is that in order to achieve their goal of building the tower, the builders were abused and their lives were not valued. The building materials had more value than the people. While the generations before the flood were flawed because they put the whims of the individual above the good of others, the generation of the tower was flawed because the rights of the individual were completely swallowed by the will of the whole as expressed through the will of their King. It made them strong, but it was still cruel. And so for that, among other things, they were punished.

But that is just one interpretation.

That is a weird looking building. What's the inspiration behind it's design?

All that's left of the real tower/temple now is a mud pit. But, it's still there.

finger to the moon is correct. 

also, this is essentially the minimal triangular shape you can use to build something that high, without support cables, i'd guess. tallest building in the world.
