The base isolated building itself escapes the deformation and damage-which implies that the inertial forces acting on the base isolated building have been reduced.
It is easiest to see the principle at work by referring directly to the most widely used of these advanced techniques, known as base isolation.
Spherical sliding isolation systems are another type of base isolation.
The building is supported by bearing pads that have a curved surface and low friction.
These gods aren't lazy, but you really wish they were.
Perhaps they view all of life as a cosmic game, with humans as mere pawns and tools.
