Thinking Abstract

One of the comments I received from a psuedo-persona on my post Sin & Divine Image is this objection:
Sze Zeng, your writing is pretty abstract. Can't understand a thing you wrote. You need to re-learn.
My response is that unless you are able to think and understand the abstract, you still haven't think and understand the real world. Whether one realizes it or not, the world is very often governed by abstractions (think liberal-capitalism, democracy, or communism among many others).
