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


Affector An-understanding made up of procedural knowledge within the context of the Operation Director of an Intelligent System.
Beyond the Information Age A new human era dominated by the use and storage of True Knowledge.
Circle of Life Knowledge directs understanding to affect knowledge directs understanding affects knowledge and so on…over and over.
Common Sense A life-form’s innate ability to detect true knowledge or make sense of its universe of raw data.
Data Type A division between fundamentally different fields of raw data.
False Knowledge Knowledge that creates errors or mistakes within the operation of an intelligent system.
Fixed Knowledge Knowledge contained in photographs or information text that doesn’t change with time.
Four Dimensional Truth True knowledge arrived at by analyzing raw data from the four dimensions of mass, energy, space, and time.
Industrial Age An era of human development dominated by the use of machines and manufacturing
Information A carrier of knowledge typically using text symbols in a specific language to transfer knowledge between intelligent systems.
Information Age A short portion of human history dominated by the use of printed text in various languages.
Information Overload Stress caused by processing too much information.
Information Processor usually a human being who interprets textual information to internal knowledge so that they may output new information at a later time.
Intelligent System A life-form constructed of both Knowledge and Understanding.
ISSU An Intelligent System Specification Unit software program that is an intelligent system.
Issue A problem solving intelligent system that uses energy until a knowledge resolution is created and the problem is resolved, usually by the production of new procedural knowledge.
Knowledge The stored memory of the experience of sensing raw data or the memory stored after processing information with a language.
Knowledge Base A storage device for knowledge organized by context and type of knowledge.
Knowledge Context A fundamental division or structure within the knowledge base of an Intelligent System.
Knowledge Type A division between fundamentally different knowledge within a knowledge base. See: (link to Types of Knowledge)
Knowledge Warfare Using threatening procedures to counter threatening knowledge from an opponent.
Language of ISSU A new human readable machine readable language designed to capture true knowledge to be stored in a knowledge base.
Life-form A living intelligent system that consumes energy to understand knowledge to perpetuate its life.
Memory A physical device capable of storing/retrieving information and/or knowledge.
MEST An acronym for Mass, Energy, Space, and Time which constitutes the sensible detectable universe of common life-forms.
New way of Thinking The result of changing the procedural knowledge that drives your thinking affector.
Office Building A place where people go to process information and operate businesses.
Planetary Mind A large knowledge base accessible by people and machines over the entire Planet Earth.
Procedural Knowledge The how-to step by step instructions used by understanding engines within the scope intelligent systems.
Raw Data A physical reflection of our universe in Mass, Energy, Space, and Time which can be detected by intelligent systems.
Self-Evident Truth Knowledge that is determined to be true by an intelligent system itself.
Sensible Universe The environment where an intelligent system (life-form) exists that they can actually sensed with physical, mental, or instrumentation sensors by the intelligent system.
Ten Directors The ten standard knowledge contexts that all intelligent system life-forms use to organize their knowledge bases. The ten directors are: Name, Author, Purpose, Environment, Language, Configuration, Operation, Owner, Market, and Value.
Thinking An affector constructed of procedural knowledge used to scan your knowledge base and assemble new procedures and knowledge.
True Knowledge Knowledge that can be proven accurate within the scope of the universe of an Intelligent System.
Truth A reference to True Knowledge not False Knowledge.
Understanding a program like set of procedural knowledge used to instruct an understanding engine of an intelligent system to do something.
Understanding Engine A computer-like knowledge processor that uses energy to understand procedural knowledge and produce and affect.
