ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: from Astronese, the adjective provisional is used here in the sense that it denotes “dependence upon” or “contingent to something”, which when conjoined to the suffix -ism denotes “a formalised belief”, altogether meaning in the context of the Astroeschatology “the principle that experience of cosmosis is first dependent upon one’s attainment of the condition of astrosis.”
