Cosmotarianism

ˈkɒzməʊtɛːrɪənɪz(ə)m

noun

the Astronist ontological belief that the cosmic reality is the only reality and what does not exist to affect The Cosmos, does not exist. It is considered as a form of anti-anthropocentrism and is based on the notion of cosmic empathy, the perceptual form in which a person imagines existence from the perspective of the entire Cosmos, thus placing anything below astronomical in scale as inferior.
