Preface of the First Edition
“There is no greater and more important freedom than the freedom of believe for without this quality in every human, we lose a core part of our person, a core part of our humanity. It is core to the human experience to hope, to fear, to wonder, and to explore and religion, philosophy, spirituality and now astroncy provide us with the tools to make this endeavour. Each definition has been authoritatively created by myself and staff within the Institution to the best of our current knowledge and ability in defining these most core elements to freedom of religion or belief. In years to come, I will no doubt reflect on the primitivity of these definitions but as in every I do I endeavour to do my best and better still next time. Please enjoy this First Edition of The Institutional Dictionary of Freedom of Religion or Belief as I continue my doctoral research in this most important of fields within scholarship on human rights.” – Cometan, founder of Astronism and padron incumbent of the Astronist Institution
