the enormity of these figures... hard to convey in virtual worlds...
you don't have to take my word for it... check it out, you'll see...
you can sense them looking down at you... guardians... working for
your benefit... whether you like it or not... it doesn't matter...
one at a time and it has to be night... broken into pieces always
reassembling... you can swallow them whole... their mouths big as
the universe... at least this universe... i'll tell you more, i'm
breathing...

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.

when all is accepted, when she lives after my time
the video surrounded by the others, my self,
the video which is a gift from myself to the other,
and the video which is the seeing of some of life
in the world, among the worlds beyond
