The Astronist Institution, sometimes referred to as the Institution of Astronism, the Universal Astronist Institution, or simply the Institution, and when referring to the Institution's operations in specific countries the Superiate, is a religio-philosophical institute, or institution of philosophy, founded by the philosopher Cometan. As such, the Astronist Institution is the principal and founding denomination of Astronism; a life stance that may manifest as a religion, philosophy, political ideology, or simply, a spirituality.
Organised into local, regional, national and transnational subsidiaries, the term Astronist Institution is the nominal collectivity of thousands of Astronist organisations that identify with, are directed by, and are subject to the prescriptions and dispensations of the government of the Institution. Therefore, legally, there exists no such legitimate organisation known as the Astronist Institution; instead, national branches of the Institution (known as superiates) are likely to be registered with governments, sometimes as charities and in other jurisdictions, as businesses (which itself likely depends upon the recognition of Astronism as a religion).
The Institution was founded as part Cometan's authorship of the treatise called the Omnidoxy during which sole proprietorship over Astronism was conferred by Cometan to the Institution. This took place during the eight year long era known as The Founding of Astronism.
In its formative years, the Astronist Institution was known as the Astronist Organisation, or as The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism (abbreviated to TIOTPOM).
The Astronist Institution was founded in 2013 by Cometan as the institution which would solely manage, hold ownership over, and be the organisational representative for Astronism and all the concepts, theories, disciplines of study, and beliefs residing within it. The Astronist Institution also solely owns the rights to all the works of Cometan, most notably The Omnidoxy as the founding treatise of Astronism.
