Plunging in steep cascade,
Tossing its white-maned waters
Against the hemlock's shade.

Trees are above us, and darkness. The canyon fades . . .

In a true system, this energy would continue to cascade down to ever smaller scales and eventually be dissipated; the model system, however, cannot reach such small scales, and since it conserves energy efficiently, must have additional dissipation applied.
