Extrospheral processes” are processes with a targeted sequence, which take place in two or more spheres and run from the inside to the outside in relation to the sphere under consideration. They have an extrospheral course.

The antonym of the term “extrospheral process” is the term “introspheral process”.

The term “Extrospheral Process” was newly defined for the terminology of the “Digital Era Framework”. Within this frame of reference, four spheres are differentiated, which represent different types of manifestation of information: The infosphere, which consists of the analog infosphere and the digital infosphere, the cognisphere and the entisphere. Looking at one of these spheres, the expressionExtrospheral Process” indicates that a process with regard to this sphere has a course from the inside to the outside.
