At present, the quality of the educational process is more and more linked mainly to dromocratic teletopy, i.e. to the capability, the ability and willingness of the educational process participants to connect to the cyberspace digital networks. In the past decade, the process of modernization of Western companies acquired a new and powerful impulse. This impulse is to increase the rate of information translation (transfer). In short – speed. Although speed is inseparable from the networks and cyberspace, it can be studied relatively independently, as the French philosopher and cultural critic P. Virilio shows in his dromologic studies. Dromologic examination of “the role of man in the space” indicates that the rate of information translation fundamentally changes humans – it changes their perception, their language, and it also changes their mind. Virilio devoted a large part of his work to the changes of the perception of reality. He watched the emergence of a new way of perception of reality due to the increasing speed in the sequential information transmission; he also observed the formation of new aesthetics – aesthetics of disappearance, as a result of the cinematographic (i.e. visualized) distribution of information. Things, information, theories, claims, etc., are revealed precisely because they are disappearing. Through a philosophical analysis, the following text shows that current theories and trends in education must come to terms with the existence of aesthetics of disappearance, the dominant cognitive form of information transmission in cyberspace.
