Opening and Closing in Open Systems.
Klapp, Orrin E.
In open information systems, such as in the case of human interchange with the self and the environment, input quantities have no upper limits. The human information utilization system, however, is psychologically and behaviorally unable to accept ever increasing loads of information. Because of this apparent fact, human information systems should periodically cycle into a closed mode to prevent the possible psychoses of information overload and future shock. (CH)
