“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Object-Oriented Relativity

I believe I've figured out a way in which special relativity talks about object withdrawal a la OOO. You'll have to wait until I do my talk at Rice to get hold of anything, in particular because I'm going to need to do some tweaking of the basic hypothesis to get it just right.

For now though, it looks like my talk will be about contemporary physical theories as non-atomist. It's going to be called “Hyperobjects 3.0: Physical Remix.”
