Cosmic alchemy, also referred to as Millettarian hermeticism, Astroalchemy, or Astronic hermeticism, is the tradition of hermetic practices and hermeticism within the context of Astronism and is often also described as astronomical hermeticism due to the astronomical theme that is attributed to this form of hermetic practices. Cosmic alchemy can be considered the result of the astronisation of hermetic beliefs and practices.
Cosmic alchemy is essentially predicated upon the notion that The Cosmos exists as both a physical, spiritual, and intellectual entity and that a series of mysteries exist as part of it that humanity is destined to discover through practicing hermeticism.

There is considered to exist many elixirs throughout The Cosmos and they are to be discovered by those practicing cosmic alchemy, known as astroalchemists, or cosmochemists.

Therefore, we ourselves can be considered cosmic relics and in cosmic alchemic writings, this is the term that is most often used in relation to humans individually and humanity as a whole.
