ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: from Astronese, the word port is used to denote “a gateway” or “an entryway” to the abode of the dead which, in Astronist belief, is regarded to be intertwined with and manifest as the astronomical world as represented by the use of the prefix over- to denote that which “resides above” conjoined to the word world to denote “a place”, hence altogether meaning “a gateway to the place above.”
