We demonstrate that extremely long range correlations may develop in systems that start from equilibrium and are then rapidly cooled (or driven in other ways). Amongst other things, these correlations suggest a collapse of the viscosity data of glass formers. This collapse is found to be obeyed over 16 decades of relaxation times in experimental data on all known types of supercooled fluids.
