the entire process of salvation in Astronism regarded as achieved by way of humanity’s ascension into the astronomical world and is often presented as a series of complex, interwoven processes and conditions, all of which are integral to humanity’s fulfilment of what is regarded to be its existential purpose and destiny, as well as being the prerequisite for humankind reaching its highest possible condition as a species.

ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: from Astronese, the term transcension is formed by the use of the prefix trans- denoting something “beyond” or “across” adjoined to the word ascension denoting “the act of rising upwards, either physically or figuratively”, altogether meaning “rising up to the astronomical world” which is regarded as an act key to salvation according to Astronist doctrine.
