Hi Andy,

Just "blue click" (Meta-click or whatever) on any object to bring up  
the Morphic handles.  The second handle from the top on the right will  
let you inspect or explore the object, or browse its source code.  Use  
the inspector or the explorer to send messages to the object.

Very useful.
