Nice to read your post. It recalled one of Lenin's hypotheses: Quantity
transfers into a new quality as soon as it has exceeded a certain limit.
On the higher Quality level the quantity devolops and the whole circle
continues. Its not a direct citation, it's only my vague translation
from russian into english. Your post expresses what I experience each
day at work, while constructing our electron accelerator.
