A “rhino-digital process” is an interspheral process that affects both the digital infosphere and the olfactory organ of living beings, whereby the parts of the process form an interspheral unit.

The term “rhino-digital process” was coined as part of the terminology of the “Digital Era Framework”. In this frame of reference, four spheres are distinguished on the basis of the type of information manifestation, which allows a classification of processes: The infosphere, which consists of the analog infosphere and the digital infosphere, the cognisphere and the entisphere.

In a “rhino-digital process”, either the entisphere or the cognisphere is involved in addition to the digital infosphere. The olfactory organ in its physical existence is part of the biosphere and thus of the entisphere. In a functional view, however, a reference to the cogniphere must be taken into account.
