The picture of alpha condensation is extended to a general concept of nonlocalized clustering, which is the so-called container picture and is applicable to promisingly all the cluster structures. The extended version of the so-called THSR wave function demonstrates the competition between the localized and nonlocalized cluster motions and then leads to the concept of the container, which plays a role in trapping the constituent clusters in a flexible way. It is also shown that the path of cluster evolution, which is indicated by the Ikeda diagram, can be described by the evolution of the container.
