Abstraction is a conceptual process of complexity reduction that highlights the essential properties or first principles of a given object or idea, and analysis across different layers/levels. The process has limitless instantiations throughout many fields, including math, computer science, linguistics, neuroscience, psychology, but most importantly philosophy, social theory, and AI (Artificial Intelligence). Moreover, TATO is developing abstraction into a broad critical thinking and knowledge disclosure framework situated in a metamodern social scientific paradigm, affecting a fundamental shift in society, enabled by global automation and AR (Augmented Reality), based on first principles. Metamodernism is defined as a new cultural, political, scientific, and social movement representing a post-ideological, open source, globally responsive, paradox resolving, grand narrative. Abstraction is thus a metamodern epistemology and praxeology - or "metaphysics of society" - that socially reconstructs a global metanarrative from the shattered prisms of postmodernism and the political status-quo. Society is a simulation. Abstraction is the operating system. TATO is the upgrade service.
