Elkhosht proceeds that transformation in modern age starts by religious reform in Germany through influencing thinking methodology. Science is thinking methodology; therefore, there is difference between science, information, science industry, and science production by methodology. Mind has internal routes closed unto themselves. Mental routes should be open to themselves to reach flexible mindset. Transcendent reality is created by media and public opinion and it should be transformed into true consciousness which is an issue that needs effort from all the state foundations. Consideration should be transformed into action as there is difference between strategic planning and applicable planning. Global universities talk about the annual updating of strategic planning which is being conducted by the university in this period.
