Freebase

  1. Cosmos

    In the general sense, a cosmos is an orderly or harmonious system. The word derives from the Greek term κόσμος, literally meaning "order" or "ornament" and metaphorically "world", and is antithetical to the concept of chaos. Today, the word is generally used as a synonym of the Latin loanword "Universe". The word cosmetics originates from the same root. In many Slavic languages such as Russian, Bulgarian, and Serbian, the word Космос also means "outer space". In Mandarin Chinese, cosmos and universe are both translated as 宇宙, which literally translated means space-time.
