A process is called “extradigispheral” if it runs completely outside the digital infosphere. A phenomenon or an object is “extradigispheral” if it is located exclusively outside the digital infosphere.

The adjective “extradigispheral” was coined for the nomenclature of the “Digital Era Framework” in order to make it clear when looking at the digital infosphere that an event or process takes place completely outside this sphere. The “Digital Era Framework” is a reference framework, which allows to categorize phenomena that occur in the context of digital change, digitalization and digital transformation, and to analyse the structures of a digital world in the digital age.
