The general issue of the multispiral solutions was investigated and showed that they actually evolve on ultraslow time scales. This was achieved with the help of the long numerical simulations of the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation (CGLE) and to a quantitatively correct reduction of the dynamics to the evolution of the sole vortex position and phase coordinates. This true defect-mediated turbulence occurs in two distinct phases, a vortex liquid characterized bynormal diffusion of individual spirals and a slowly relaxing, intermittent, "vortex glass".
