It's interesting, though, I read recently a post by Alan Kay (invented Smalltalk) that Smalltalk was not all about objects, it was all about messaging. In Java, everything is not an object (no function objects), everything is not a function, and it's not a consistent messaging story like Smalltalk either.

Regarding the immutable world. I found this thought interesting: the world is not imperative, but it is reactive. I was reading about functional reactive programming, and that seems to get closer to modeling the real world since it sets up the "physics" of a program declaratively. How things interact. And then you say go, and your application "just works" because the interactivity/dataflow is defined.
