From a quick search it seems that most people view the phrase "abstracted reality" as an artistic style that portrays reality in an abstract manner. In my opinion this has also become a good term to describe my philosophy of technology
There are so many terms out there that technology can describe, such as augmented reality and virtual reality, or even a virtual machine, but is there a term that is able to describe what technology has become.
I would like to argue that the phrase "abstracted reality" is a good term for the path that technology is taking.
If you look at the words that make up the phrase I think you will agree that this is a good term for what technology has become.
The Oxford dictionary defines
'lacking concentration on what is happening around one' and
'the state of things that actually exist, as opposed to idealistic or notional idea of them.'
Technology is quickly becoming something that doesn't actually exist around us, in the direct sense, but something that exists in its own domain.
Innovation in technology has reached a point where advancement comes from what we build in this domain or how we expand it.
A computer is no longer a computer, it is either in its traditional sense one of many things we can use to access this domain or more commonly these days a virtual interface that lives in it.
