Not to be confused with the rubral for the discourse of The Seven Tenets of Association.
The Seven Tenets of Association is the collective appellation for the seven most prominent beliefs within Astronism that allow a person or group to self-identify with Astronism. For this reason, these different tenets of belief and principles are most often incited in order to differentiate between Astronist-oriented thinkers and those that are not Astronist thinkers. However, the use of the tenets in this way remains questionable by the standards of the Philosophical Spirit.
The Seven Tenets of Association are as follows:
- The Centrality of Humanity's Exploration of The Cosmos
- The Centrality of Philosophy in Society & Civilisation (Reascensionism)
- The Belief in Cosmocentricity
- The Belief in The Cosmos Holding The Answers of Existence (Intracosmism)
- The Belief in the Affirmation of Sentient Life beyond The Earth in The Cosmos (Sentientism)
- Holding an Adoration & Wonderment, as well as the practice of the generation of different Devotions to The Cosmos (Cosmic devotion)
- A Greater Knowledge Equals a Greater Understanding of God, Being, & Reality (Enknowledgement)
From the perspective of the Millettarian Tradition, the main aspect relating to these tenets is that they are not to be taken literally and that they are not to be considered tenets in a religious context which pertains to an inability to identify oneself with the philosophy if one does not believe in one or more of these tenets. For this reason, these tenets are not grave in their nature so a disbelief in any one of them could still be identifiable for a Millettarian person.
Additionally, there are many principal aspects of The Philosophy of Millettism that are not addressed within the seven tenets, but the establishment of these tenets does set a precedence for the general orientation of Millettism and characterises its atmosphere and nature, thus pertaining to the purpose of these seven tenets.
- 1 The Centrality of Humanity's Exploration of The Cosmos
- 2 The Centrality of Philosophy in Society & Civilisation (Reascensionism)
- 3 The Belief in Cosmocentricity
- 4 The Belief in The Cosmos Holding The Answers of Existence
- 5 The Belief in the Greater Possibility of Sentience in The Cosmos (Sentientism)
- 6 Holding an Adoration & Wonderment, as well as generation Devotions to The Cosmos
- 7 A Greater Knowledge Equals a Greater Understanding of God, Being, & Reality
The Centrality of Humanity's Exploration of The Cosmos
The primary element of The Philosophy of Millettism essentially holds that humanity must explore The Cosmos in order to learn more about its own reality, about humanity's true role in the wider existence beyond The Earth, as well as humanity's self-reflection, thus forming many different belief orientations concerning this topic.
This first tenet is very closely associated with the third tenet of cosmocentricity and this also involves notions about humanity's responsibility to The Cosmos, as well as including concepts such as cosmic stewardship, space colonisation, and new world development.
The Centrality of Philosophy in Society & Civilisation (Reascensionism)
The second tenet of The Philosophy of Millettism pertains to Millettarian metaphilosophical ideas about what role philosophy should play in every society, as well as pertaining to ideas such as philosophocentricity, organised philosophy, and the identity and role of philosophers in a society and in communities.
This tenet is encapsulated by the belief orientation of reascensionism which predicates itself on the notion that philosophy has been devalued, undermined, and decentralised as part of modern society by other forces. Reascensionist thought calls for the return of philosophy to its central place in social order and societal structure, as inspired by the role of philosophy in Ancient Greek society. Reascensionist ideas, when collectivised together, form a core element of the Millettarian philosophical tradition so not only in The Philosophy of Millettism, thus demonstrating the prominent role that reascensionism holds in the Millettarian philosophical methodology of inquiry, as well as Millettarian approaches to metaphilosophy.
The Belief in Cosmocentricity
The third tenet of The Philosophy of Millettism centres on the notion of cosmocentricity which involves the idea that The Cosmos as an entire entity should play a central role in human belief, practice, thought, and civilisation. Cosmocentric thought is celebrated as the underpinning of how Millettarian approaches to thought, belief, and practice can be characterised.
Cosmocentricity is itself characterised according to a centrality of belief and practice of The Cosmos, as well as progeny and phenomena.
The Belief in The Cosmos Holding The Answers of Existence
The fourth tenet of The Philosophy of Millettism can be considered a close extension of the previous tenet of cosmocentricity and is accorded by the notion that The Cosmos is the primary source of ontological, existential, metaphysical, and theological answers, thus pertaining to the centrality of The Cosmos in Millettarian Philosophy.
The Belief in the Greater Possibility of Sentience in The Cosmos (Sentientism)
The fifth tenet of The Philosophy of Millettism is predicated on the strong belief in the existence of intelligent life beyond The Earth, as well as life in all of its forms which is a major characteristic element of the Millettarian philosophical tradition. This belief orientation is known as sentientism.
Holding an Adoration & Wonderment, as well as generation Devotions to The Cosmos
The sixth tenet of The Philosophy of Millettism involves the importance of Cosmic Devotion in The Philosophy of Millettism which forms many concepts and belief orientations and is the primary formulator of the practices of The Philosophy of Millettism. Devotions to The Cosmos exist in a large variety of forms whether in direct personal inspiration, in an occurrological setting, or by way of mutual devotion.
A Greater Knowledge Equals a Greater Understanding of God, Being, & Reality
The seventh and final tenet of The Philosophy of Millettism pertains to the importance of enknowledgement in the Millettarian philosophical tradition due to the constant enhancement and expansion of the extent of one's knowledge considered to be an important element of what philosophy stands for, as a metaphilosophical concept.
