Mirror Tectonics


On February 12, 2011 an earthquake measuring 6.8 on the richter scale struck central-southern Chile - a year after it was struck by an 8.8.

On February 22 a 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck Christchurch in South Island, New Zealand.

On March 11 a 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Northern Japan, the strongest the country has yet seen.

All the above quakes were followed by aftershocks.

These earthquakes are all happening around the well known and closely observed belt of volcanic and earthquake activity that runs around the Pacific, known as the 'Ring of Fire'. Devastating though these events are they should be no surprise as increased tectonic activity goes hand in hand with global warming ( See: Accelerated Tectonics in this section )

But the pattern of these earthquakes connects with 2 points I have been illustrating on this website - the concept of the 'closing' of the Pacific as the beginning of a contraction period, ( see: Contraction ) which involves massive increase in plate movements. The 'Ring of Fire' is effectively the Pacific plate grinding against all the surrounding continental coastlines.

As illustrated in 'Chile Axis Shift', the positioning and sequence of these earthquakes are consistent with the concept of Earthquake reflections and 'Mirror Tectonics'. If you regard the plates as inversions of each other ( as the above illustration demonstrates how closely a reversed Australia fits the Pacific plate ), these current earthquakes ( as demonstrated by the Turkey / Chile quakes last year ) appear to occur in areas that roughly correspond to the same part of their opposing, inverted plate.
