a doctrine that sees support from some schools of Astronist soteriology holding at its core that only a select portion of humanity (called the Psephate) are destined to attain astrosis and to reap the rewards of transcension; in many instances, psepharian thought associates being an Astronist with being a member of this astrotic elect.

ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: in Astronese, the word psepharianism is based on the word psephology which is itself based on the Greek word psēphos relating to the acting of voting; with the addition of the suffix -arianism to denote a belief about people or in relation to people, this term in astrosoteriology is used to refer to the selection of people for something which neatly relates to the concept of the astrotic elect.
