I'm sure the scientific community will be fascinated by your novel interpretation of this well-established law of physics.

Now, in the real world, falling down is what things normally do. If the towers had fallen sideways, that would have violated the Second Law; and if they had fallen up, the First Law.

In short, it is not possible to get an ordered reaction (here: straight-down collapse) from a disordered stimulus (here: asymmetric airplane crashes and subsequent random fires).
Newsflash: The force of gravity sums to a single vector, and that vector points pretty much towards the centre of the Earth. We refer to this as "down".
