We explore the potentials of ldquoopen-source-style-educationrdquo from the viewpoint of an axiomatic approach of cyberworlds adopting an approach to study a basic 4 step reasoning; axiom, theorem, implementation and proof. The first step is defining the axioms of world; ldquoin the evolutionary power, borrowing and utilizing functions exceed owned functions.rdquo The second step is ldquotheoremrdquo as the prediction derived from the axiom; ldquoto enjoy sharing unlimited resources make the world stable by its cooperation processes.rdquo The third step is the ldquoimplementationrdquo as ldquoopen-source-style-educationrdquo for producing global commons and wealth. The fourth step is the ldquoproofrdquo of the potentials of ldquoopen-source-style-educationrdquo from the point of view of network science and open society Sir Karl Raimund Popper argued. Open Source has hitherto been discussed mainly in relation to software development, politics, economics, and sociology, however it can and should also be investigated from educational aspects as a means for changing our society according to the advance of science that could invent the weapon even the individual can slaughter the all mankind instantaneously in the near future. In this paper we argued the potential powers of ldquoopen-source-style-educationrdquo to change our society. In using conceptual education-models we propose here an open source learning models on the basis of legitimate peripheral participation and scale free network as a potential contribution to the improvement and evolution of our society.
