ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: from Astronese, the word definitive is used here to denote “the provision of information that is a specific to a limited degree”; with the addition of the suffix -ism, the term is transformed into “a formalised belief” that, in the context of the Astroeschatology, relates to “the provision of some specificities as to the closure of the scope window for transcension.”
