Object is the parent class of all classes in Ruby. Its methods are therefore available to all objects unless explicitly overridden.
Object mixes in the Kernel module, making the built-in kernel functions globally accessible. Although the instance methods of Object are defined by the Kernel module, we have chosen to document them here for clarity.
