noun  Astrosoteriology

the quality of a person as being dedicated to the endeavours of astrosis and contributing to the process of transcension; refulgence is often distinguished from lucency as it primarily denotes dedication in an emotional and practical sense rather than in a religious or mystical sense.

Astro-English: in Astronese, the noun refulgence is based on the adjective refulgent which means “shining brightly”; in the context of Astronist soteriology, refulgence means to be dedicated to both one’s personal transcension (called astrosis) and the transcension of all humanity (sometimes called collective astrosis).
