"Fast forward seismology and you hear the earth scream. Geotrauma is an ongoing process, whose tension is continually expressed — partially frozen — in biological organization."
- D.C. Barker
"... Nothing else remains, only the screaming and the darkness under the heavy impressure of the earth, for the screaming, that does remain; they stand there below in their ruined graves, stand in tiny pieces leaning to one side, eaten away by the acids, wedged into the earth, but in their wide-gaping mouths the scream does not cease, it somehow remains there, broken into pieces, and yet through the millennia, that scream of horror, the single meaning of which nonetheless extends up until today, telling us that the universe below the earth, the locus of death, below the World is a colossal overfilled space, that that place where we shall all end most certainly does exist; that the World, life, and people will all come to an end, and it is there they will end, below, this time here below... The horror, which is not just the residue of some cheap fear: for there is a domain, that of death, the dreadful weight of the earth pressing in from all sides which has entombed them, and which in time shall devour us as well, to close it in upon itself, to bury, to consume even our memories, beyond all that is eternal."
- Laszlo Krasznahorkai
