Major hyperobjects breakthrough

Hyperobjects are massively distributed in time and space. They are viscous. They are nonlocal. They are squishy (temporally foreshortened).

And today I realized that they are also--but I'll wait to be explicit until the Rutgers talk.

It was a very satisfying mesh with my unconscious actually. Last night I was convinced that I had had a new idea about hyperobjects, but I didn't know exactly what. I told myself to sleep on it and I'd probably recall it in the morning. I woke up having forgotten about this plan, but a few hours later the breakthrough occurred to me.

I love breakthroughs like this. I had one myself today as well! Best wishes from Digital Pidgin :)
