People who do not know the true nature of integrative love through experience of such love---tend to be insecure people and so are defensive people. Exclusivity in arrogance, pride, and boasting are defensive measures used by insecure people. Such exclusivity elicits insecurity and like kinds of defensive measures---in an exponential growth process because the absence of love and affectionate understanding within a supportive communal context augments such an absence. Any condition which successfully augments itself generates exponential growth. Exponential growth is slowed only be limitations which moderate the successful augmentation of the condition. Exponential growth must occur within some context. It is the context of exponential growth which is changed by the growth and brings about the impossibility for the exponential growth to continue for ever. Each kind of exponential growth will ultimately change its context and undermine its own continuation. To understand how exponential growth will end it is necessary to study the context which permits exponential growth to persist for a while. The conditions which permit exponential growth are changed by the growth and the changing of the conditions which permit the growth bring an end to exponential growth: through exhaustion of resources, through crowding, through pollution, etc. Only in the imagination which is out of touch with reality and real limits can exponential growth continue without limit.
