Previous work from Lam, August, 2016 shows that infinity can be used as a bridge (i.e. constitutes a proof) to connect mathematics and Roger Penrose’s Three World Philosophy. Indeed, one can extend Roger’s Three World Philosophy to Wilber’s Spectrum of Consciousness which consists of four levels and nine stages. To delve deeper in the theory, one may propose that “Multiple World Philosophy” corresponds to the multiple number of types of infinity. This theory can then be applied to describe the complex multiple dimensions character for digital equity. In addition, it can depict the pictures about the interconnections between these dimensions, as there are also affiliations between these worlds. Therefore, “Multiple World Philosophy” is highly likely definitely to be a theory for solving mystery characters – multiple dimensions of Digital equity. The occurrence of Digital equity implies that we are emerging as an information based society. Thus, information-based ethics such as privacy, accuracy, property and accessibility should be included in local school curriculum. In such a case, the access or not access problem transcends to the problem of “Ethical usage in ICT device”. By understanding the philosophy of multiverse, one can overcome part of the gap it creates by applying the aforementioned strategy. In fact, one can only solve the problem by using multi-policies corresponding to different dimensions since digital equity employs a multi-dimensional philosophy. Therefore, schools, community resources, the government and private corporations should work together to develop a citizenry capability to participate in the present information age and to help settle the issue more effectively.
