Interspherality” is the property of processes, phenomena and objects to extend over several spheres and thus exhibit a multi-spheral character.

The word “interspherality” is a neologism that was coined as part of the terminology of the “Digital Era Framework”. The “Digital Era Framework” serves as a frame of reference for the description of phenomena that occur in the context of digital change, digitization and digital transformation. It provides a classification of the way in which information manifests itself. Four spheres of information manifestation are distinguished: The infosphere, which consists of the analog infosphere and the digital infosphere. The cognisphere. And the entisphere. If a process, a phenomenon or an object extends over several of these spheres or is related to several of these spheres, this constellation is referred to as “interspherality”.
