POLYGONS above are shown in DETAIL, below. These are METER-SIZED, and have been GRADUALLY SHEARED, ROTATED, and RE-ARRANGED with GRAVITATIONAL LATERAL MOVEMENTS! My CASE HISTORIES have shown that they are sheared monthly, by the LUNAR INFLUENCE (requiring a MUCH LONGER TIME for the EXHIBITED POLYGONS!). They are 4-sided (PARALLELOGRAMS) for the VERTICAL SCARPS measured by GEOLOGISTS, but BEHIND the scarp there are MULTI-SIDES (the face seen by the field worker being a side of a polygon WITH MORE than 4 SIDES. With approach to the HILLTOP behind the scarp, there is a gradual increase in number of SIDES! In other words, the rectangles are GRAVITATIONALLY-ADJUSTED with TIME- due to shearibg and rotating. The RECTANGLE is SHEARED in an ARCUATE SLICE- becoming a slab with more than 4 sides. With SUFFICIENT TIME, the rectangle becomes a DECAGON or OCTAGON! This occurs for the SMALL SCALE shown, as well as for REGIONAL and CONTINENTAL FIGURES!
ROTATION-SHEARING has produced CHARACTERISTIC SLICKENSIDES:
1. 18N latitude is NOT the key, this latitudinal anomaly is to the south;
2. PROTRUSION of the peninsula to the WEST is the most PROMINANT INDICATOR (a linear "TIT" showing westward EARTH TIDES);
3. LINEARS are secondary:
