the conception of god in the panentheistic and depadotheistic theology of Astronism.
Conceived as an infinite force that transcends both cosmic and universal existence, The Divine shares few characteristics to the traditional conception of god in other religions. In line with Astronism’s depadotheism, The Divine does not take on moral judgement nor did it create The Cosmos and The Universe. Instead, The Divine is understood as an infinite life force that sustains all existence, a product of which inside The Cosmos is the Astran. Attention paid to The Divine varies greatly amongst Astronists with some identifying as atheists and others as devoted to Divine worship, worship of the Astran. However, the Astronist Institution is clear in its stance of incentrality towards The Divine in Astronist religion and philosophy, instead placing greater importance on the principle of the Astran.
