Beyond the Information Age discusses a new way of thinking about computers, knowledge and understanding. See the editorial for more information....

Attacking Institutions

The first thing you can expect from users of ISSU is to see them begin attacking established institutions by attempting to duplicate and analyze their knowledge bases. By taking published information and issulizing it, groups of users will be able to carefully construct a knowledge base image of the institution. ISSU will then point out contradictions and misunderstandings that are fundamental to the institution. Users will then be able to 'tweak' the knowledge base to see how it would affect the organization. Generally this new understanding of an old institution will give the ISSU team all the ammunition they need to either kill off or rebuild the institution. By this procedure many old institutions and organizations will fall by the wayside of human history. In their place will become new dot-issu organizations founded on true knowledge.

During this time of deconstruction and reconstruction of the human race's most cherished institutions, conflicts will inevitably arise. Human nature's propensity to deny the truth will bring knowledge warfare into a new and difficult time. Vast numbers of the Earth's population will deny that new thinking is even possible and refuse to bow to the dictates of a computer software program like ISSU. Their adherence to some fixed knowledge will prevent them from changing and joining those who have decided to move beyond the information age. Some of these people will die for their cause, while desperately clinging to their fixed knowledge during bloody battles with the new thinkers. Fortunately this knowledge warfare is normal for life in general because knowledge directs understanding affects knowledge and only the strong (true knowledge) will survive.
