ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: from Astronese, the prefix re- is used to denote “again” or “to do once more”, and like in other instances, the word cosmism is used here to “a life” or “lifetime of an individual”, then altogether meaning “another life” or “to redo life” so as to infer belief in reincarnation.
