We argue, in light of Collapse Model interpretation of quantum theory, that
    the fundamental division between the quantum and classical behaviors is
    analogous to the division of thermodynamic phases. A specific relationship
    between the collapse parameter $(\lambda)$ and the collapse length scale
    ($r_C$) plays the role of the coexistence curve in usual thermodynamic phase
    diagrams. We further claim that our functional relationship between $\lambda$
    and $r_C$ is strongly supported by the existing IGEX collaboration data. This
    result is preceded by a self-contained discussion of quantum measurement theory
    and the Ghirardi-Rimini-Weber (GRW) model applied to the free wavepacket
