And saturate with the nectar of their kind.

Blooming under the eaves of the house which is gone.

That is, for any infinite cardinal λ for which there is µ < λ ≤ 2µ , we construct a regular ultrafilter D on λ such that (i) for any model M of a stable theory or of the random graph, M λ /D is λ+ -saturated but (ii) if T h(N ) is not simple or not low then N λ /D is not λ+ -saturated.

Then there is a regular ultrafilter D on λ which saturates ultrapowers of al l countable stable theories and of the random graph, but fails to saturate ultrapowers of any non-low or non-simple theory.
A Dividing Line Within Simple Unstable Theories
From the point of view of saturation, good ultrafilters are maximally powerful in the sense that if D is a regular good (i.e. λ+ -good) ultrafilter on λ and M any model in a countable signature, then M λ/D is λ+ -saturated.

The saturation should then not be considered just as final (or initial) state saturation but all (n ≥ 3) → 2 processes which decrease the gluon number relative to the independent 2 → 2 processes, are in effect.
