noun  Astrosoteriology

one of three contrasting approaches to the structure of the Sideresis that attempts to transcend the determinist-indeterminist dichotomy; at its core, redetermination affirms the doctrine of general returnism – that transcension is humanity’s purpose – and also that transcension is absolutely evitable, that by no means is it guaranteed to occur hence it is not predetermined, a view based on the notion that many independent events need to take place in order for transcension to occur despite scope and astronality having been established as part of cosmic evolvement; redeterminism holds that whether something is determined or not is unknowable; redeterminist thought holds that the scope afforded to humanity contemporarily builds upon the original scope brought about by way of the scope of man; the doctrine of redetermination holds that the scope of man occurred by way of this cosmic evolvement but that all events in the Sideresis proceeding on from this have been caused by human action or inaction.
