Dust as Hyperobject
Marcus Nilsson suggests, very wisely, that particulates, dust and bacteria, since they aggregate and swirl, could be considered as a hyperobject. This would account for phenomena such as dust storms and epidemics. More on this soon, when I think about it some more. But a good case could be made for such entities as interobjective phenomena, involving translations between wind, human and nonhuman vectors.
