noun (also cosmicality)
the quality of being concerned with the astronomical world, especially as a source of religious or philosophical connection or guidance, often considered a gift of faith amongst Astronists.
|Classified as a fundamental human emotion with prehistoric origins amongst tribespeople like the Australian Aborigine and others according to Astronist theory, astronality constitutes the foundations of Astronism and is considered to have been a component to development of human intelligence beyond other species. It is characterised by human perception of the astronomical world, especially regarding how this relates to individual and collective “existentiality” resulting in a strong connection between the individual and the astronomical. In Astronism specifically, all human beings are considered to possess the opportunity to engaged with their astronality, the mastery of which is fundamental to the achievement of astrosis and is considered an astronomical religious experience. As such, the state of one’s astronality reflects their spiritual, intellectual and philosophical interactions with the astronomical world, leading to potential fluctuation in the condition of one’s astronality.|
