The difference is fascinating. Not sure if it's clear from the context, 
but in LOST, the names of the owners are separated from the names and 
descriptions of the objects; they can't be reconnected. So the objects are 
untethered in the world (as they are in real life, rarely found again, 
especially when death intervenes); there's the wide world of the objects 
and the wide world of the previous owners (associates might be better, one 
never owned a parent for example, although one might own a bowl), 
fundamentally separated.

I love the poetics/poesis of your piece - thank you! - I didn't know about 

The revised url works by the way - this one is cut-and-pasted and balked 
of course. Apologies again, Alan
