Climate Change

  • there's a huge difference in 1% of people surviving vs 0%
  • what is easier - fixing our planet, that is/used to have perfect conditions for living, or terraforming another planet, that never had those properties?
  • hyperobject

    The whole phenomenon appears inherently un-image-able, amorphous and weirdly stretched out over space and time, and thus escapes our cognitive reach.

    — Moritz Stefaner

    In The Ecological Thought, Morton employed the term hyperobjects to describe objects that are so massively distributed in time and space as to transcend spatiotemporal specificity, such as global warming, styrofoam, and radioactive plutonium

    • hyperobjects might be related to tools for thinking, we need better bicycles for the mind to deal with hyperobjects
