ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: from Astronese, the concept of astronomical proximation, or proximationism, finds its origins relatively late in the Founding era, during The Year of Completion. Its origins come from Cometan’s principle of total proximation towards the astronomical world and has since become a fundamental practical component of Astronism.
