ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: from Astronese, the word transitional, denoting a period or process of transition or change, combined with the suffix -ism denoting a belief; meaning ‘belief of transition.’ The term transitionalism holds its origins in the writings of Robert P. Wasley in the form of a non-theistic spiritual worldview, but Cometan astronised the term to incorporate it into Astronism during the end of The Year of Prolifics and during the beginning of The Year of Completion.
