    The only explaination for this is that the pillar is fixed to the above construction. Considering this is the only hanging pillar, the other pillars carry it’s weight. So the pillar on itself has no use other than for aesthetical reasons.

    if I’m not mistaking, I can see a point of contact,. or is it some dirt or dust collected under it?
    the weight of the pillar can be carried on a small point of contact and there’s no need for all of the points in both stones to touch to support the weight of the pillar. unless it’s designed to be hanging from the top I see no other way how it can be hanging.
    pretty interesting either way.

History

Do you agree that 'History repeats itself'? If so, would you dare to face famine, war, or black death in the present version 2.0? Institutions have taught you that you must study history in order to 1.) know the origin of a place or thing, 2.) have facts in almost everything, 3.) have a glimpse of the past, or 4.) have an insight of the future. Anything else?
Is 'History repeats itself' an equivalent of predestination - trying to make things better but still, 'History repeats itself'? Reconsider that future cannot be determined by the past rather the choices made in the present. Sometimes, it's 'Past is past'.
