not accumulation but change, the feed-back proves, the feed-back is

“What neat repast shall feast us, light and choice,
Of Attick tast, with Wine, whence we may rise
To hear the Lute well toucht, or artfull voice

He who of those delights can judge, and spare
To interpose them oft, is not unwise.”
