Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present research work on systemic and cybernetic knowingness: relating according to classical and original concepts: "(a)symmetry" and subtleness". There is an entire project focused on contemporary complexity versus the information-knowledge dynamics.

Design/methodology/approach – The starting point is related to the denominations: "perverse effects" and "asymmetric conflicts". The paper supports innovative (a)symmetric approaches on human beings, ITC and community: shrinking the gap between humanist and technologist perspectives; promoting an anthropocentric perspective with stimuli from the real world expressed by (old and new) ideas regarding the (re)construction of a world/e-world balance through/within the triad: production, intelligence andmorality; illustrating a positive e-world response by sketching innovative, synergy-based, experimental ITC models, considering metaphors linked to the idea of an open definition of subtleness.

Findings – The paper finds a shrinking gap between our world and our e-world, able to integrate biased perspectives and realising a composition of (a)symmetric matter within information/knowledge economy/society. Based on semantic transfer, there is a promising path to a creative partnership between humanists and technologists within the interactive modeling: connectedness-communication versus incursion-anticipation. From a knowledge engineering perspective, a solution can be reached more effectively by: a Wienerian view on the information and knowledge as (a)symmetric concepts/constructs – and a dually Goedelian view on the observability and controllability of a subtle entity/system toward a wisdom and/or consciousness society.

Originality/value – This paper provides information and knowledge on “information-knowledge dynamics” research.
