DESCRIPTION

Object-oriented ontology is a convenient theoretical platform for interpreting radiation as a hyperobject. According to the creator of the idea, Timothy Morton, hyperobjects are non-localizable substances that remain glued to you no matter how hard you try to resist. Hyperobjects permeate the entire spectrum of being, from elementary particles to galactic clusters.

The work of such esoteric philosophers as Rudolf Steiner and Alice Bailey contains interesting suggestions of how radiation can be viewed as a source of facts of consciousness in the light of contemporary physics. The most important of these may be the understanding of radiation as a form of evolution. Reflections about ideas taken from object-oriented ontology, esotericism, and contemporary physics can help to explain the essence of hyperobjects and the influence that radiation has on human life, while uncovering the ethical demands that arise in the process.
