Flat Ontology

Flat ontology is a model for reality that says that all object, even those that are imagined, have the same degree of being-ness as any other object. No object is more a subject than any other. All subjects are simply objects. The key factor in determining ontology is the ability of an object to affect another object. For example, if I imagine a rainbow and am therefore made happy, that rainbow is as real an object as my feelings of happiness, or me.

This is a point of disagreement between those theorists engaging in philosophic discussions about objects.
