Distinct from the phenomena of The Cosmos, progeny or progeniture of The Cosmos, also referred to as cosmic progeny, cosmicals, celestials, astronomical entities, cosmic entities, or simply the highers, in the context of Astronic cosmological terminology, is a collective noun pertaining to celestial entities, or some other object that exists in space as seen to be descendants, or the offspring of The Cosmos when it is considered as animate entity.
Progeny may include general entities, such as planets, stars, and galaxies, but it also includes specific named entities such as The Earth, The Moon, and The Milky Way. This is distinct from phenomena which instead relates to events that occur within The Cosmos involving progeny which may include supernovae, galactic mergence, eclipses and other celestial occurrences.
An adjective associated with progeny is progenial which is used throughout the Omnidoxy.
