I am so right. I tried erasing that statement as soon as I wrote it- but damn- it's true- so put it back in.
Last April, after a very boring few weeks of quake-watching, there were two very large quakes off Indonesia. The quakes were strange for various
reasons, all of which have been cover by numerous studies. The map of that particular faulting was as messy as a pizza delivery boy's road atlas.
Arrows every which way. Those earthquakes did more than just confuse geologists, those two extra big bumps shook the whole damn world and triggered
lots and lots of other earthquakes. You could say, these two earthquakes mated and had baby earthquakes.
I don't know why I have to like reading. The damn study on Wyoming water was what I was after.
Last April I stated that all that activity was interrelated. It was an exceptional moment because it was out of the ordinary and this made the
contrast so glaring and obvious. It was more a bit beyond statistics and more than just coincidental. It wasn't just me who was noting at the time
that it had been ghostly quiet. I was tiring of my own joke that it was like a war movie or something where a person notes it's a little "too" quiet.
Gosh, scientist should stick to science stuff and leave the writing to writers. That analogy in the article comparing it to an apple tree was silly.
Apples. Even the Newton story about the apple tree is fiction and never happened. What's the deal with the apple tree??? I digress.
Last April the whole world was resonating as if all the church's bells were ringing at once. Almost as if a message was being passed from one
watchtower to the next in vast chain forts. I think this study is important because before this admission of guilt, most of the geological community
was set on viewing earthquakes as local. For me there was never a debate. I couldn't see how earthquakes and seismic zones would release all that
energy in isolation. They don't. It is obvious when you have a thrust-fault that causes a tsunami. That wave can travel right around the world. So,
how can seismic waves pass 'round and 'round like the Sumatra quake and nothing happen elsewhere? Even if it's not a large push, it's still a shove
that sends a body down over a cliff. Sometimes a nudge is enough.
But more important that the notion that earthquakes don't like borders and zones, is that it demonstrates to me that all things are in one way or
another, inter-connected and interrelated.
So, maybe everything is connected. Like that African quake. Just for fun I looked at the satellite map. It appears there's lots of farming in the
area. I was looking for mines and other activity. Because we can't assume all earthquakes are natural. At first I thought it was a clear cut forest.
But with farming we have irrigation. Especially in a hot Africa. So. Maybe the earthquake was from a depleted aquifer. Who knows? Right?
Oh, here's that report on Pavillion, Wyoming...
One last thought. Yes, after the two biggies in Indonesia, there was an uptick in activity all over the place. But what about the quiet before hand.
There is the before, the during, and the after.
So, the question must be asked. Was it all part of a larger dynamic?
In the quiet period, was the cessation of normal activity from a force that was, let's say, holding onto the faults in a tight grip?
Then, when that force release it's hold, did this set off that coupling near Banda Aceh?
I think the report missed the point. They even ask themselves, why is this important. Their answer was unimaginative. Because they have to recalculate
their risk assessments??
Didn't Einstien say imagination was important?
And talk about quiet. Ha!
I'll tell you what's quiet. The eastern united states. Okie. nothing. arkansas, just a couple of teeny ones near NMSZ. texas, hmmm did they stop
maybe because there's a natural gas glut...???
Oh, wait. This is a very good article on the USGS reports...
and here's a good description of the dynamics of the 8.6 and 8.2 movement.
I didn't need records and statics to tell me that week was weird. One of the joys of being Autistic is my reaction to change. I'm so wrecked now, I've
become a giant alarm siren whenever there's any change in my life. I have watched these chart thingys long enough to know what's normal. Normal
doesn't always mean good. I could get used to chaos as long as it is normal and unchanging. That's why people will stay in abusive situations. It's
known. We are afraid of the unknown because we can conclude that things could get even worse, so why not just settle with the known no matter how bad.
It's too bad I can't go back and think through the events as they transpired. I'm sucking down 1500 kilometers of change and it's making my sick. Too
sick to become nostalgic. Survival doesn't allow you to write down history at the time it's occurring. Oh well.
it's too quiet. ha
