"thought of as" here would mean "how it is perceived." It could probably be replaced with "thought to be," "believed to be," "perceived as," "It is seen as," if this helps. I can't think of any use for the word "absorb" that would mean this though, I am curious what flashcards you used. Did they give you an example sentence?
