In science:

At the most primitive, naive level, all the vacuum inside the aforementioned expanding shell might at early times have this property. (This is the \Baked Alaska" scenario. ) When the hot shell hadronizes and breaks up, the disorientation is radiated away in Goldstone modes (pions) of a common (cartesian) isospin.
Geometry of Multihadron Production
Baked Alaska scenario. When the DCC meets the normal vacuum with the standard chiral orientation, the pions radiated can have any orientation in the isospin space, i.e., dn=d cos (cid:18) is a constant, where (cid:18) is the polar angle in isospace.
