Humans have always sought to climb their way to Heaven and to out-do the accomplishments of others. The Spire embodies both desires at once, for it reaches skyward, striving as high as possible, and looming above the petty attempts of others to match its grandeur.
A slim needle of metal lattice and steel plate, the base of the Spire can never be seen. Travellers who reach it appear on one of the many observation decks and no matter how sharp their eyes, see only clouds when they look down. There is a way to see off of the Spire, though. In recent centuries, telescopes and then tourist viewing binoculars have appeared on the observation decks. By peering through them, the ground can be seen; a different ground for each platform. Every platform looks out onto a different city.

In theory, every city on Earth has a platform attached to the Spire, so that viewers can gaze down upon it and see all that transpires as if standing atop the tallest building in that particular city. To leave the Spire, a traveller simply locates one of the observation decks that connects to a city which has its own reflection of the Spire. A second elevator is located on each such deck and taking it to the Ground Floor will send the traveller to the appropriate reflection’s base. No one has ever reported being able to travel to the base of the Spire itself, by any means.
