an approach to Astronism (and other religions) in which language and discourse (both written and oral) are removed from a person’s religious practices and beliefs, especially manifested in the removal of the authority of texts in favour of focusing on the worship of, contemplation on, or otherwise physical or intellectual interaction with the subject or source of one’s religious faith. In Astronist philosophy, alingualism is considered a product of hypercosmocentrism.
