Hyperobjects 3.0: Physical Graffiti

Here's the lecture I gave at Rice today. Featuring extensive discussions of relativity and quantum theory. I'm particularly happy with the stuff on relativity, which I've been keeping under wraps for a while. Basically everything Graham says about time and space on the inside of an object is what Einstein also says in another key. Also featuring the work of Levi Bryant and Ian Bogost.

Around 6:44 into the talk I should have made it clear that the sentence “I am smarter than you to the extent that I can see around mere objects” was in scare quotes. It's not what I think! I'm ventriloquizing someone who thinks “Anything you can do I can do meta.”
