One recalls the Goyaves chapel
Where two thousand Antillean Sundays sleep
The harmonious widowhood of the port,
And the music, quaint antiquities of leaded glass...

That some of us shall halt and faint and fall;
For we are looking through a darkened glass,
And Heaven seems far, and faith grows cold and pale.

In science:

Experimental evidences where obtained for a low temperature “spin-glass” phase characterized by a non-periodic freezing of the magnetic moments (the spins) with a very slow, and strongly history dependent, response to external perturbations (this later aspect lead more recently to many fascinating developments).
Some aspects of infinite range models of spin glasses: theory and numerical simulations
The theoretical analysis of this phenomenon lead to the celebrated Edwards–Anderson model of spin-glasses: classical spins on the sites of a regular lattice with random interactions between nearest neighbor spins.
Some aspects of infinite range models of spin glasses: theory and numerical simulations
One can argue that the effect of the binary couplings is also 1/N in the spin glass phase, and is thus negligible with respect to the leading 1/N 2/3 finite size correction: In the spin glass phase the leading finite size correction is the same for the binary and Gaussian couplings.
Some aspects of infinite range models of spin glasses: theory and numerical simulations
In the spin glass phase, the data are compatible with a 1/N 2/3 behavior for both the leading finite size corrections to eN (T ) and fN (T ).
