Theory of Everything

A Theory of Everything, according to [[Object Oriented Ontology]], must be able to account for all objects properly. - Specifically, it must be able to deal with: - Non physical [[Objects]], like the Dutch India Company. The Company itself is more than just the ships, buildings, people, etc that make it up. And it's different from those things too. - Objects at the size they are, rather than reducing them infinitely (eg: everything is just atoms). In OOO the galaxy is as much an object as a fly. - Fictional objects, like Sherlock Holmes. They form a part of our experience, too. - Things in a non-literal sense. It must recognise that literally describing a hammer and what it does, even to the Nth degree, does not get at what a hammer is. It only offers a sideways glance. This is similar to what Heidegger asserted. - Most Theory's of everything don't account for everything listed above, and so fall short at being a theory of everything.
