Omnidoxy, the founding book of Astronism

« Back to Projects Dashboard

The Omnidoxy is the founding treatise of Astronism. It was written by the philosopher and religious leader, Cometan, through a form of revelation known as personal inspiration, an amalgamation of ideations considered as indirect divine revelation.

The text is structured by twelve disquisitions bookended by a preppendix at the front and an appendix at the back. The twelve disquisitions are themselves split into hundreds of discourses which are populated by insentensations, a product of the Insentence writing structure applied throughout the text.

The vision and prophecy outlined in the Omnidoxy is of a society revolving around astronomy, space exploration, and devotion to The Cosmos through a new world religion as a revival of long-practiced astronomical religions. The Omnidoxy prophesies this society to be imminently pending and one in which cosmocentricity reigns.

The Omnidoxy speaks extensively of other religions in a comparative and neutral tone. Some criticism can be interpreted from the Omnidoxy towards other religions and no acknowledgement is ever given to other religious scriptures holding any recognition in Astronism.

Varying belief orientations have emerged since the creation of the Omnidoxy, principally regarding its authority for Astronist beliefs. Some beliefs orientation bestow a higher level of moral authority and infallibility of the Omnidoxy while Institutional Astronism considers the Omnidoxy to be a rolling treatise of notional authority and infallibility subject to the time and context in which it is read.

The Omnidoxy was written in English which remains the native language of both the text and of Astronism. However, the globality of the Omnidoxy was quickly developed with the translation of its original English form taking place only a few years after its completion. The translation of the Omnidoxy, known as omnitranslation, emerged as a prominent and somewhat controversial subdiscipline of omnidoxicology. This was due to the fact that the Astronist lexicon had to undergo a neotranslation in which it nomenclature had to be translated so that their meanings remained accurate to the original English version.
