In the context of an Organization, a stop can be many things. The
organization is moving mostly through time (although in my part of one,
too much space these days!!) and one cannot stop in time (or can one?)

When an Organization finds such a beautiful place, its reaction to it is
not to stop in it, but to continue in small difference
between space and time.
