In diuscussion with laymen I noticed that this old entry didn’t explain very much at all. I have now expanded the Idea-section as follows:
$\infty Grpd$ is the (∞,1)-category of ∞-groupoids, i.e. of (∞,0)-categories. This is the archetypical (∞,1)-topos, the home of classical homotopy theory.
Equivalently this means all of the following:
$\infty Grpd$ is the simplicial localization of the category Top${}_k$ of (weakly Hausdorff) locally compact topological spaces at the weak homotopy equivalences. As such it is the ∞-category-enhancement of the classical homotopy category: $\tau_0(\infty Grpd) \simeq$ Ho(Top), itself presented by the classical model structure on topological spaces: $\infty Grpd \simeq L_{whe} Top_k$.
$\infty Grpd$ is the simplicial localization of the category sSet of simplicial sets at the simplicial weak homotopy equivalences. As such it is the ∞-category-enhancement of the classical homotopy category: $\tau_0(\infty Grpd) \simeq$ Ho(sSet), itself presented by the classical model structure on simplicial sets: $\infty Grpd \simeq L_{whe} sSet$.
Hence, as a Kan-complex enriched category (a fibrant object in the model structure on sSet-categories) $\infty Grpd$ is the full sSet enriched-subcategory in sSet on those that are Kan complexes.
$\infty Grpd$ is the full sub-(∞,1)-category of (∞,1)Cat on those (∞,1)-categories that are ∞-groupoids.
