The term “infosphere” refers to the idea of an all-encompassing set of information that encompasses the world as if it was a global shell.

The “infosphere” is the set of all explicit information abstracted from entities.
Affiliation to the infosphere is expressed by the adjective “infospheral”. If a process takes place completely within the infosphere, this can be made known by the adjetives “intrainfospheral” or “endoinfospheral”. The adjectives “extrainfospheral” or “exoinfospheral”, on the other hand, indicate that an event takes place entirely outside the infosphere. If an interspheral process begins or ends in the infosphere, this is referred to as the adjectives “extroinfospheral” or “introinfospheral”. If it begins and ends outside the infosphere, it is “transinfospheral”.
