“In a sense, we can expect human egos to be pockmarked with the traces of hyperobjects. We are all burnt by ultraviolet rays. We all contain water in about the same ratio as the Earth does, and salt in the same ratio that the oceans do. We are poems about the hyperobject Earth.” —Timothy Morton, Hyperobjects: Philosophy and Ecology after the End of the World
