Abstraction

“The mind apprehends the world in categories comprising notions which belong to a higher level of objectiveness. It is a non-observable form of objectification, fuelled by the experience of the external itself, surpassing the tangibility of the singularities into an alignment produced by the cohesive force of the thought, achievable only to the mind. Abstraction is seeing what is not there but present beyond the object. Abstraction is the ability to see qualities and relations where there are only things. On top of that, it is an innate faculty, we are all given and may develop throughout life, and for that it is also a controlled process.”

From “On Immigration”
