addiction, collections, daily shite, obsessions, psychology, stuff (too much)

collections are awesome yet cumbersome. no matter how much you have you always want more.

when is a collection complete? and if there is a finite amount of items to collect, is there really a point to it all?  i thought collecting was an ongoing activity that had no end. when will the slots of the empirical collection be complete? what is the penultimate addition?

are collections addictions? are collections obsessions? when do they present pathology?
