Instrument theory


the dispositional discipline of Astronism concerned with the nature and use of instruments of study in Astronist philosophy.

Origin and etymology

  • Astro-English: from Astronese, the term instrument theory developed out of Cometan’s need to understand the philosophical components of the instruments of study that he was using in his Astronist and cosmic philosophies. This term has origins concurrent to the first writings of the Omnidoxy when Cometan was seventeen years old.
