The Vendox is the principal symbol representing Astronism and Astronists.
Called the "tradition of the stars", the Astronic tradition of religion stands alongside the Abrahamic, Dharmic, and Taoic traditions to form a way of thinking oriented on all that is beyond The Earth; all that is cosmic by scale and nature.
The Astronic tradition, also referred to as Astronicism, is a form of both religion and philosophy that, as a organised thought tradition, originated in the writings of Cometan during his founding and establishment of Astronism. The Astronic tradition encompasses both Astronic philosophy and the Astronic religions, both of which share the theme of cosmocentric thought, logic, and belief.
Cometan himself proclaimed that the Astronic tradition had existed for millennia in an unorganised form prior to The Founding of Astronism with the relationship between astronomy, religious belief and philosophical discourse having been well-documented pre-Cometanically.
The Astronic tradition claims to be the oldest religious and philosophical tradition in the world replacing Hinduism which is approximately 5,000 years old. This is because the Astronic tradition draws its roots from prehistoric astronomical religions that stretch back as far as 40,000 years.
