The Grand World is a conception of a future condition of humankind prescribed in the Astroeschatology. It describes a humanity that is multiplanetary and multisystemic, has achieved the state of transcensia and has progressed significantly in its fulfilment of the endeavour of transcension. The Grand World is then often understood as a utopian future state of the human species that is enjoying the fruits of transcension.
In another related sense, the Grand World is a means of sustaining humanity's condition of transcensia (a process called perpetuation) long enough so that it may undergo both the realisation or the attainment of the Ultimation.
- Grand World is also used as an alternative appellation for The Cosmos.
