SELECT object_name, object_type, status FROM USER_OBJECTS;

Returns all objects and object states to which you have access:
SELECT object_name, object_type, status FROM ALL_OBJECTS;

Returns all objects and object states of the database per owner basis:
SELECT owner, object_name, object_type, status FROM SYS.DBA_OBJECTS;

There are also performance views in the Data Dictionary which prefixed V$.

Following statement shows who is connected to the database:
SELECT sid, serial#, username, osuser, machine from V$SESSION where username is not NULL;

Static Data Dictionary Views can be listed along with comments in dict:
SELECT * from DICT order by table_name;
