Graham Harman on Hyperobjects

Graham has always always been about thirty seconds way by text for clarification and explanation of many a Deep Thing in the eight years we've been pals. It's just a happy coincidence that "strange stranger" in The Ecological Thought corresponds exactly to an OOO object, and that I started thinking about hyperobjects two years before I read Tool-Being. I had a cholesterol problem at the time and was going to the gym a lot, where I read it. Philosophy, gymnasium.

Here's this great essay he's just published on the hyperbjects idea.

Can you please comment on what Bruno Latour means when he says,

"The globe is not actually something which has any existence."
(at 46:59)

"the destruction of the image of the globe"

"the Earth itself might not be a globe after all"

Do you think Latour's thought fits with the thought of Earth as a level motionless plane?
