Ash (less commonly junk) is the (stable or oscillating) debris left by a random pattern or reaction. Experiments show that for random soups with moderate initial densities (say 0.25 to 0.5), the resulting ash has a density of about 0.0287. (This is, of course, based on what happens in finite fields. In infinite fields the situation may conceivably be different in the long run because of the effect of certain initially very rare objects such as puffers and replicators.)
