And over, afar from over the deep,

Of the billows that build the gale.
It ceased; but on in his bosom creep
Low echoes that tell the tale.

Keeping my heart from forgetting, no matter how hard I try,
The various kinds of a fool I was in the years gone by . . .

In science:

If there are no nonconstant J -holomorphic CP1 ’s in M then we can use Theorem 6.31 to define Lagrangian Floer cohomology using effective Kuranishi cochains, and the construction then works with Novikov rings over the integers Z, or over an arbitrary commutative ring R, rather than just over Q.

Assume p ∈ S(B ) splits strongly over A, that is, there exists a sequence I = h¯bi : i < ω i indiscernible over A with ϕ( ¯x, ¯b0 ), ¬ϕ( ¯x, ¯b1 ) ∈ p; then ψ( ¯x, ¯b0¯b1 ) = ϕ( ¯x, ¯b0 ) ∧ ¬ϕ( ¯x, ¯b1) ∈ p divides over A, since the set {ϕ( ¯x, ¯b2i ), ¬ϕ( ¯x, ¯b2i+1 ) : i < ω} is inconsistent by the dependence of T .

We say that it is a sequence in p nonsplitting/nonforking over A (or based on A) if it is a sequence of realizations of p indiscernible over B and nonsplitting (respectively, nonforking) over A.
