noun (also Deep Astronism)

a branch of Cosmism advocating for a life of solitude under vows of poverty and chastity so as to achieve complete and ultimate immersion into one’s astronality with the intention of unlocking the many, possibly infinite, unique dimensions of the astrosis state that hypercosmists believe are achievable for a single person; total and absolute dedication to the unlocking of these astrosis dimensions requires hypercosmists to forgo the distractions of the material world and of family life.
