For those unable to embrace either a fairy-tale Sky God or atheism’s blind denial of the unseen life force animating all things, we urgently need a new way to talk about “God”. Though its most articulate explainers refuse to acknowledge the implications of what they are proposing, Hyperobjects provide that language. -WT

IS GOD A HYPEROBJECT?

 

by William Thomas

 

 

Yes. By definition. But no one writing about this bold new way of viewing “objects” as vast and amorphous as climate change, the Big Bang, machine intelligence or the internet wants to talk about the Prime Hyperobject pervading all others. Including ourselves.

 

“Hyperobjects are scary. We sense something is happening, but we don’t know what it is,” says Stephen Muecke, a hyperobject himself who teaches Environmental Humanities at the U. of New South Wales.

 

This isn’t just bafflegab. Even if we refuse to consider them, hyperobjects permeate our lives, sticking to us with effects and implications pervasive and profound enough to rock our world.



Hoookay, toss me more hyperobjects...

A retired colonel giving a lecture on aviation, “started the class by asking me, the only girl in attendance, if I was lost,” the 56-year-old Shults said after the incident. “'I mustered up the courage to assure him I was not.”


The 149 people onboard Flight 1380 are no doubt delighted that she persisted in her often-opposed quest.
