Ever noticed that as soon as you clean out a drawer you find new things to put into it?
Why is it that when six people lived in my home and I had only one closet to call my own that was enough? Now that it's just me my things fill two closets and spill over into two more.
When I drive to work I try to keep three or four or more car lengths between me and the car in front of me for safety's sake. But that doesn't last long before someone pulls into the open space.
Empty the trash...fill it back up. Fill bags with stuff to donate...come home with more.
Case in point: Once this was an empty lot near my office.
Last summer a dumpster and a shopping cart suddenly appear. (no office building or grocery store in sight)
Half a year later...same lot:
Filling up with trucks and junk.
But it's not pretty...why couldn't the lot be overtaken with wild flowers and babbling brooks and chirping birds and sugar and spice and everything nice?
Nature abhors a vacuum/void.
