Uniquitarianismthe central ontological position of Astronism holding that all sentient beings hold a state of consciousness and mentality known as uniquity which is intrinsically linked to their destiny. Essentially, the nature of being in Astronism is therefore entirely considered through this understanding of uniquity. Uniquitarianism first originated as the Astronist response to complementarianism and egalitarianism from which it developed to become the primary ontological position of Astronism.added by

Unique Waythe Astronist response to the Buddhist doctrine of the Middle Way holding that unique combination of indulgence, moderation, and asceticism will be sought after and implemented by every single individual due to their uniqueness rather than a “one size fits all” doctrine in which the masses are ascribed with a set of general principles for them to form in uniformity.added by

Uncreatednessthe Astronist cosmological belief holding that due to the infinite nature of The Universe, it couldn’t have been created which would automatically deny its infinite nature; this is known as the problem of the createdness of The Universe. As a reaction to this, uncreatedness states that The Universe was not created by The Divine, but has instead always existed, but is nonetheless sustained by The Divine and is dependent upon The Divine for its continued existence, thus still adhering to the belief of subordinationism.added by

Triadisma major Astronist cosmological belief regarding the nature of The Universe predicated upon three essential notions, the first of which is uncreatedness of The Universe, the second of which is the divine sustainment of The Universe, and the third of which is divine omnicreativity which, when considered together, create the triadic formulation.added by

Transcensionismthe belief orientation derived from the notion of transcension and an Astronist eschatological school holding that it is humanity existential purpose and destiny to explore space and that without humanity’s commitment to its advancement towards space, that humanity will not achieve improvements in our knowledge, spirituality, intellectuality, physicality, and mentality. Essentially, transcensionism is predicated upon the notion that the endeavour of space exploration provides humanity with existential purpose without the need for the involvement of a God or the afterlife. Important to transcensionism is both corporeal cosmosis and contributionism.added by

It is important to note that each cosmos in The Universe is considered limited and transient while both the frequency and abundance of cosmoses in The Universe infinite. This is because cosmoses are subject to Universal laws while all that exists within cosmoses are subject to Cosmic laws.added by

The Chaosthe antithesis of The Cosmos and classified as one of the three lesser existences. The collective term for all instances of disorder, irregularity, volatility, and unknownness present in The Cosmos. The true extent of The Chaos is not considered to be derivable due to its unknown nature.
