Still, de Boer felt Hale’s question was fresh and worth exploring. Who knew what they’d find? Maybe a novel mechanism would come to light. He sensed that an answer might lay in the undiscovered presence of other cracks in the earth’s surface that crossed the Delphi fault at something close to a right angle, forming an X. That would enlarge the path from the bituminous limestone to the surface, increase the amount of friction on the two fractures during earthquakes, and generally ease the rise of gases. In terms of geometry, it would transform a vertical plane into an intersection of two vertical planes, their juncture forming a pipeline to the surface. Of course, if the idea had merit, the X would have to cross right beneath the temple of Apollo.
