Drive self from every part;
Charity divine, draw nigh,
Break the chains in which we lie!

The great power of jets from radio AGN can not only quench cooling in cluster cool cores, but also can drive the ICM properties away from those de fined by simple self-similar relations involving only gravity (summarized in Voit 2005).
Every BCG with a strong radio AGN has an X-ray cool core: is the cool core - noncool core dichotomy too simple?
The supersoft source was not strong enough to drive a self-sustaining accretion flow, so the decline in magnitude and accretion rate will continue, and T Pyx will not erupt again in the foreseeable future.

This means that, regardless of the initial distribution f (0), with 0 < p(0) << 1, demographics and natural selection drive f (t) towards multiples of ν , in what can be seen as self-organization of copies of A in the optimal stable way for them to spread.
Altruism can proliferate through group/kin selection despite high random gene flow
In the present calculation we do not consider the back-reaction of the plasma on spacetime. A complete self-consistent analysis would require the inclusion of the plasma contribution to the stress-energy tensor that drives the Einstein equations.

For example, the catalytic action at one end of the particle generates an anisotropic chemical gradient across its surface, and this self-generated force drives the particle’s movement through a liquid medium.
Field-control, phase-transitions, and life's emergence
To say it in other words: Even if one starts out with a configuration (represented by the twopoint functions at initial time) for which the dependence on X is weak, a peculiar choice for the self-energies might drive the system out of the regime where the gradient expansion is valid.
