It's a widely used language that makes the web what it is today, allowing for websites to be more responsive, dynamic, and interactive. Disabling JavaScript takes websites back to a time when they were simple documents without any other features.

What are the advantages of using JavaScript?

Speed. Since JavaScript is an 'interpreted' language, it reduces the time required by other programming languages like Java for compilation. JavaScript is also a client-side script, speeding up the execution of the program as it saves the time required to connect to the server.

What can help us to comprehend disaster and loss of such magnitude?

We can try to put it in terms of astrology, currently circulating:

Numerology on the World Trade Center:

  • The date of the attack: 9/11=9=1+1=11
  • September 11 is the 254th day of the year=2+5+4=11
  • After September 11 there are 111 days left to the end of the year
  • 119 is the area code to Iraq/Iran= 1+1+9=11
  • Twin Towers standing side by side resemble the number 11
    The first plane to hit the Towers was Flight 11
  • State of New York - the 11th state to join the Union
  • New York City=11 letters
  • Afghanistan=11 letters
  • The Pentagon=11 letters
  • Ramzi Yousef=11 letters (convicted of orchestrating the 1993 attack on the WTC)
  • Flight 11=92 on board (9+2=11)
  • Flight 77=65 on board (6+5=11)
  • Emergency number=911 (9+1+1=11)

Coincidentally, September 11 is the date in 1814 that the British attacked Ft. McHenry and a young Georgetown attorney named Francis Scott Key composed his poem which later became the lyrics to our national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner," ending with the moving words, "land of the free and home of the brave."

From a feng shui numerology standpoint, the pervasive number 11 is one of the master numbers representing a highly emotional, possibly painful year. The number 9 magnifies the 11. If there is a silver lining in the monstrous cloud, 2 (1+1) symbolizes connectedness, togetherness, and dynamic attraction, and an opportunity for us to become closer to those in our lives.

Four Pillars Feng Shui reveals a tremendous imbalance of the fire and metal elements on that very yin (dark) day. September 11, 2001 was a day of yin earth, yin metal, during the most yin (metal) animal year of the Chinese zodiac (Snake) which is ruled by yin metal and yin fire. The day was in the summer when the fire element dominants as well as gives birth to the element of earth. The hour pillars, 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., ruled by the Dog, were those of yang earth and yang earth while 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., ruled by the Boar, were yin earth and yin fire.

The first plane hit at a time during the hour of the Dog, which clashes with the Ram and Ox, the ruling animals already in conflict that day.

Notice the convergence and dominance of yin energy at that year, month, day and hours, with precious little yang energy to maintain balance.

In the generative relationship of the elements, fire generates earth during those hours, days and season, with nothing to balance or offset them. There was no wood present that day to destroy earth and nor was there any water to put out the fire.

Moreover, there was a triple clash of the zodiac animals: Dog, Ram and Ox, all earth elements, during the hour of the dragon, which accentuates whatever is happening during that time.

On that day on the Chinese almanac, the hours of 7 a.m.-9 a.m. are marked as "killing," or "unlucky." While some of the victims were killed by fire, the majority of them were destroyed by earth-the pancaking of the multi-storied earth-material building collapsing and crushing them to death. The abundance of the fire element resulted in the tons of buildings, ash and dust.
