Traumatic amputation (awaiting reimplantation)
Literally cut off; the severed tentacle is removed from its origin. Yet severance implies a former connection, and connection implies an initial function within the context of that original, unbroken system. Tubes, cables and guide wires all point to a well-defined set of activities relevant to the original, connected state. In this manner severance can be seen as loss, but it is also evidence of origin, author, source and in this there is hope.
