An emerging mathematical philosophy known as 'categorification'' has significantly altered our perception of mathematics and the way we analyze our surroundings. The principle of categorification aims to uncover a hidden layer in mathematical structures, revealing a richer and more robust theory capable of describing more complex phenomena. Such extensions of mathematical structures become vital as the frontiers of theoretical physics pushes the boundaries of our understanding towards a quantum theory of gravity. The goal of this proposal is to increase the prevalence of the categorification perspective throughout the sciences.
