Why does the triangle tower have no shadow?

Everything has a shadow. I think maybe because the shadow is cast upon it's self. Every object that stands in light casts a shadow, unless that object is light (produces light).

If an object casts no shadow, then, that object is light. I like to describe it as, (concerning people) a humble person casts no shadow.
