The preconscious moment when love has fluttered in the bosom,
Before it begins to ache?

In science:

In the context of our comparison between transmit diversity and spatial multiplexing, it is worthwhile to note that the mutual information in (3) is greater than that of transmit diversity for any channel matrix H.
Transmit Diversity v. Spatial Multiplexing in Modern MIMO Systems
Drawing parallels with the discussion in Section I about the suboptimality of repeating the same signal on two frequency channels versus transmitting different portions of a coded block thereon, one could equate transmit diversity with the former and the optimum MIMO strategy with the latter.
Transmit Diversity v. Spatial Multiplexing in Modern MIMO Systems
Link adaptivity and scheduling have rendered transmit diversity undesirable for low-velocity users whereas abundant time/frequency selectivity has rendered transmit diversity superfluous for high-velocity users.
