The swelling up of mountains was described as an orogeny. Ontogeny, phylogeny, orogeny-accent syllable two. The Antler Orogeny, the Avalonian Orogeny, the Taconic, Acadian, Alleghenian orogenies. The Laramide Orogeny. The center of the United States had had a dull geologic history-nothing much being accumulated, nothing much being eroded away. It was just sitting there conservatively. The East had once been radical-had been unstable, reformist, revolutionary, in the Paleozoic pulses of zakelijke energie vergelijken three or four orogenies. Now, for the last hundred and fifty million years, the East had been stable and conservative.

The Great Basin was topographical, and extraordinary in the world as a vastness of land that had no drainage to the sea. The Basin and Range was a realm of related mountains that coincided with the Great Basin, spilling zakelijke energie over slightly to the north and considerably to the south.
