Since the stories below the level of collapse initiation provided little resistance to the tremendous energy released by the falling building mass, the building section above came down essentially in free fall, as seen in videos.

Claiming something and proving it are two different things.

If they won't even talk about how steel had to be distributed in a structure that supported itself for 25 years I am not about to just BELIEVE.

In the places the structure was distributed as designed it held up just fine, even while it was already collapsing in other places;
why discuss it in more detail than NIST NCSTAR 1-1?

What happend when things got redistributed by airliner is discussed in NIST NCSTAR 1-2 and NIST NCSTAR 1-6.

the ‚distribution‘ in the downward progressing collapse zone looked so chaotic it’s beyond discussion but obviously not fit for supporting anything.

A big jumble of steel and concrete settling (well, trying to) on a self supporting structure that simply wasn’t designed to take up that kind of load.
are you really surprised that it didn’t hold?
