Trace the continental drift!

I came across this idea by looking at a map of our own planet and trying to trace the continental drift by retracing the spreading zones on the earth's surface as shown on the globe. One strange fact is that there are no mountains on either side of the Atlantic or Africa or to the south of India, where in theory they should be, opposing the mid-ocean ridges.

Why so many continental fractals are triangular with a tip to the south? I have no idea, but there must be a mathematical reason for this. What are the consequences? I don't know.
