Hi Tim! Cheers for your thoughts. Take a look at Christina's work here:
I think it resonates in many ways with yours.

Hi Everyone, 

This is my first (or possibly second if the other got through) message to the list, and I'm responding to a brief discussion of the notion of flat ontology initiated by Michael O'Rourke (hi Michael!) and Frederic Neyrat. 

OOO comes in various flavors and is not necessarily flat. Mine and Graham Harman's has two levels. Levi Bryant's and Ian Bogost's have one, but differ in how that one level works. 

Other forms of realism such as Manuel De Landa's are flat, or flatter, than OOO. 

Frederic I'm a Derridean and the idea of the singularity is my idea of the strange stranger, which is Derrida's arrivant. 

Just apply this notion of arrivant to non-life and you get the OOO "object." 

You can have all the singularities you want in a non-all and by definition non-hierarchical set, which is the OOO universe. 

Yours, Tim
