A storage can be:

  • fossil fuels that can be extracted from the ground and utilised by the human society

  • a carcase utilised by bacteria and insects

  • a loaf of bread utilised by mould

  1. If J exceeds kQ, the storage is growing.

  2. If J=kQ, the storage is constant (it is a stock)

  3. If kQ exceeds J, the storage is diminishing.

  4. In the types of storage referred to above, in practice, J = 0

Such storages will ultimately end up. The utilisators are then forced to:

  • start using another storage

  • start using a flow (and thereby be forced into another growth pattern)

  • die out

    5. If k increases with the amount stored (Q), you have a HEAP
