Abstraction, Low level

From Memetics
Jump to navigation Jump to search
A low order or low level abstraction occurs at near the objective level when we first attach a label.  

The process of abstraction is well under way by the time we put that label on the object. It is a long way from there to truly abstract concepts like "truth," "beauty," and "goodness." It is absolutely crucial that we comprehend the difference and gain a good appreciation of the full range of abstraction; to be conscious of the process and effect of abstract thinking.

so most low level abstraction memes, are usually closer to the object level, such as a apple instead of a apple smelling purfume that reminds you of gardens.
