In Gravity and Mind - Human Response to Tectonic Stress, Alan Watson describes striking new evidence that humans may be influenced by geological processes occurring deep within the earth.  By comparing the incidence of rioting and disorder with the occurrence of earthquakes in England and Wales, he has provided a clear and compelling statistical proof that the distribution of riots before earthquakes is substantially different to the distribution of riots after earthquakes.  There are far more riots shortly before earthquakes than would be expected by chance. 

This leads to further discussions about which of the various seismic effects prior to earthquakes could be causing this little known phenomenon.  Some evidence obtained during the research suggests that gravity may be a significant factor.  This postulation is based on the unusual distribution of riots potentially influenced by tectonic stress occurring when the earth is one side of the Sun.

Alan Watson is a Chartered Civil Engineer by profession and considers the influence of stress on the ground in his daily activities as a Ground Investigation Specialist working in the UK Construction Industry.

A chapter dedicated to rioting and disorder in England and Wales is intended to be a precursor to a web-based database of riots for future development.

The conclusions of Gravity and Mind have significant worldwide implications for the study of both Earth Science and Human Behaviour.
