The difficulty with belief poses the query: if belief is taken into account to be vital for winning cooperation, why don’t high-trust paintings relationships predominate? a part of the reason, the writer argues, is that it's fairly tough to construct and continue belief in paintings family members.

In the past masons used the reed and hem of rocks such as granite to facilitate the working of these and other similar rocks. These terms referred to planes parallel to which the rock will easily split. The 'reed' was the direction of easiest cleavage and the 'hem' the direction of second easiest cleavage which was always at right angles to the reed. These were sometimes called first-way (reed) and second-way (hem) and the two directions were together referred to as the rift or grain of the rock.
The pressure of the crystallization of these salts eventually causes the rock to split along these cracks and exfoliation results. Large diurnal temperature changes, although an important factor in allowing fluids to enter the rock, cannot themselves split the rock unless fluids are also present. Such temperature changes may, however, set up stresses in the rock which may assist exfoliation. Mineral particles can be moved by wind, such as in a desert environment, and these will tend to abrade any Rock cleavages may be divided into two groups: continuous cleavage such as that found in slates (called slaty cleavage), or in schists or gneisses due to foliation spaced cleavages caused by the microfolding of a pre-existing fabric in the rock.

The pounding of waves against cliffs at the edge of the sea is another situation which will, in time, lead to the mechanical breakdown of the cliffs and a receding coastline.
