ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: from Astronese, the word indefinite, which is used to denote that which is left “unknown” or “unspecified”, is augmented here and is also conjoined with the suffix -ism to denote “a formalised belief”; the implication is that this pertains to the belief in the Astroeschatology that “the scope window is not imminent to close but is either not ever going to closure or that is closure is unknowable.”
