In science:

What this means for packing large but finite boxes (with torus boundary conditions) is that the necessary gross irregularities of most packings at such high densities occur, but not in a way to disconnect the packings.
A Solidification Phenomenon in Random Packings
Although we define “uniform random packing” of the plane by limits of measures on packings of finite boxes, the key to our proof is to examine isometry-invariant probability measures on packings of the whole plane and to show that the ones that maximize “degrees of freedom per tile” are unique for high densities.
