And it brings to the soul that its voice hath met,
No rest that cadence learning,
But a conscious part in the sighs that fret
Its nature for returning.

In science:

Bertoldi & McKee interpretation for the scaling of | ~B | (∝ ∆v√ρ) suggests that OH (1720 MHz) masing regions simply have larger linewidths for a given density than unshocked molecular clouds.

Alternatively, other theoretical studies suggest that Bθ is a good approximation to | ~B | (i.e.

In addition to this morphological evidence, the density, temperature and velocity dispersion of the gas at these locations suggested that the OH (1720 MHz) masers originate in post-shock gas.

If these structures are the precursors to walls seen in the local universe, as suggested by Cohen et al. (1996b), some of the QSOs and absorbers in the surrounding volume are likely to be contained within these structures.
QSOs and Absorption Line Systems Surrounding the Hubble Deep Field
At this preliminary stage, the combined galaxy and absorption data are consistent with the suggestion by Cohen et al. (1996a,b) that this structure and those containing other galaxy peaks are parts of the precursors to present-day superclusters or walls.

First, we observe that there exists ample evidence in the literature (in the form of actual and computer experiments) to suggest strongly that the RCP state is ill-defined and, unfortunately, dependent on the protocol employed to produce the random packing as well as other system characteristics.
