in great measure. e.g. the numerous members of ICOLS (International
Corporation of Lost Structures). ICOLS thrives on and may eventually
burn itself out through -- abundance-- in terms of growing members,
expanding projects, international and intergalactic events, discussion,
argument, participation. Eventually ICOLS will produce such an abundance
of actions, manifestations, correspondences that other things in
the world will necessarily shrink to make space. This relates to
the characteristic implications of the notion of abundance, where
there is abundance in one area, there will be lack in another, and
this may be personal, spatial or temporal, not that lack is the
opposite of abundance, lack may generate an abundance of other phenomena,
and abundance is not necessarily desired by those with lack, as
in the grass is greener.
lack were to be replaced with abundance then shock may ensue since
lack can promote desire and so if lack were too suddenly replaced
by abundance then desire may potentially become drowned out and
the subject may not recover their senses.

of perpetual saying of goodbye (--adieu ad infinitum--). The history
of farewell ceremonies and rituals varies both synchronically and
diachronically. Within ICOLS (International Corporation of Lost
Structures) the farewell ceremony between international members
meeting on mutually foreign soil takes the form of a directional
salute, one member holding out to the other a portion of the ICOLS
logo (in cut perspex), a crescent of pale grey, the other member
clasping the other portion of the logo, a smaller crescent of vermillion,
the two parts touching in mid air, just as G-D put the spark of
life into Adam. This ICOLS ceremony is also carried out upon meeting
thus creating a perpetual cycle of meeting and farewell, and thus
the idea of farewell is always already embodied within the greeting
ceremony, and so on, ad infinitum.
