a branch of Cosmism advocating for a life of solitude under vows of poverty and chastity so as to achieve complete and ultimate immersion into one’s astronality with the intention of unlocking the many, possibly infinite, unique dimensions of the astrosis state that hypercosmists believe are achievable for a single person; total and absolute dedication to the unlocking of these astrosis dimensions requires hypercosmists to forgo the distractions of the material world and of family life.

ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: from Astronese, the prefix hyper- is used here to denote something “beyond the normal extent or standard” and when conjoined to the word cosmism which denotes “a philosophy emphasising subsumption into the astronomical world”, in turn a more extreme form of this philosophy emerges, namely involving the introduction of solitude and absolute devotion to the endeavour of cosmic immersion.
