I’m wondering about your comment on how the only things we could consider abstract are the ones we can’t understand or explain. That’s a good point, some on these things may be abstract, but what if some of the unexplained images are of things that people from that time period would be able to immediately recognize and name? I’m thinking of that video out there where children are shown telephones from the 70’s, and have no idea what they are.
