Pseudoscientific asshole. Skyline a goddamn word, a nice word but still just a word. Learn to use them the normal way, faggot.

Try "topography"--there's 'natural' topography and there's 'man-made' topography, but it's all topography.

I'm not exactly clear what functions facades and skylines (shouldn't there just be one skyline??) have with respect to their material-ness. Might it just be for decoration, or to one-up the last tower that was built by out-designing the previous buildings? Or do skylines participate in a sign-exchange?

Also, if there were no beauty in any given building--no artistic facade, at least--would it follow that there could be no (imaginary) communication between this building to that building, or this city's skyline to that city's skyline?
