This takes on a figurative and a literal interpretation.  A literal interpretation of a "solid state civilization" would be in a futuristic society when machines can function without human intervention.  All the information necessary to answer all the questions that could possibly be asked has already been captured or at a higher level, the machines have an intelligent design to contrive their own answers.

A figurative interpretation would be where some companies would market their present day hardware as being superior by their capacity to provide information from previously loaded data in a way that is far superior to any other company.
