The tower represents our subjetive world, 'us', which relate with the others , 'them'. The tower is an entire psychological construct which is built by our thoughts, our values and beliefs, our attitudes, our ideals, etc. influenced by the others' interpretation. Tower has two parts, one of them is organic (the lower part ), and other artificial (the upper part).

The tower, built over our experience, helps us to assess and interpret to others, that are down. It is curious, because those below can also turn influence, even being very small, making more flexible the tower. The idea that the tower in turn is "constructed by others" is interesting. The relationship is bidirectional. 'Us and them', is 'Us with them'
