ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: from Astronese, the word imperativism is clearly based on the word and concept of being imperative denoting both “urgency” and “importance”, which when qualified by the additional of the suffix -ism denoting “a belief”, altogether pertaining to, in the context of the Astroeschatology, the “assertion that experience of astronality is a prerequisite for the attainment of astrosis and also of one’s experience of cosmosis.”
