noun  Astroeschatology

a major school of Astronist philosophy centring on the concept of transcension and characterised by its advocation for collective astrosis and the salvational functions of astronomical observation and human expansion into outer space.


Transcensionist | tranˈ sɛnʃ(ə)nɪst | adjective & noun
Transcensionistic | tranˈ sɛnʃ(ə)nɪstɪk | adjective
Transcensionistically | tranˈ sɛnʃ(ə)nɪstɪk(ə)li | adverb


Astro-English: from Astronese, the term transcension is used to denote “ascension upwards in many dimensions” so the attachment of the suffix -ism to this word brings about the formalisation of this concept into “a belief” and “a school of thought” that provides emphasis to this concept.
