Hallucinations, of the dream- or virtual-world: no errors are intentional,
from what now would be considered the virtual, introjection and the tensed
body, half-virtual, half-'real.' WHO CARES ABOUT death in virtual worlds,
coupled with issues of virtuality and pain, not to mention incredible
arousal and sex? My RESEARCH GROUP on virtuality and philosophy deals with
this, as well as vicarious trauma, virtual trauma from the psychoanalyti-
cal aspects of virtual interiority; it's something I've been - ether -

Coupled and Resonating Crystal Radio Circuitry with Analog Recording

"install3, a remarkable soundwork in which voices flot through the
(metaphoric) ether, representing the universal radiations of the virtual"

In the installation, two crystal radios (one loose coupler with double
diodes replacing the crystal, and one with honeycomb coil and single air
condenser plus single diode) are coupled together, along with a variometer
and early aerial air condenser. The coupling is designed to detune the
broadcast band, so that the maximum number of stations are piled on each
other. The resulting output is fed to high impedance earphones in parallel

Flotsam is floating wreckage of a ship or its cargo. Jetsam is part of a
ship, its equipment, or its cargo that is purposefully cast overboard or
jettisoned to lighten the load in time of distress and that sinks or is
washed ashore. Lagan is cargo that is lying on the bottom of the ocean,
sometimes marked by a buoy, which can be reclaimed. Derelict is cargo that
is also on the bottom of the ocean, but which no one has any hope of
reclaiming. (Wikipedia)

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:

Ligan \Li"gan\ (l[imac]"g[ait]n), n. [Cf. L. ligare to bind, to
tie, ligamen band, bandage, E. ligament, or ligsam.] (Law)
Goods sunk in the sea, with a buoy attached in order that
they may be found again. See {Jetsam} and {Flotsam}. [Written
also {lagan}.] --Blackstone.
