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.
