Achism is the dominant religion of Achenava. While not a particularly important religion in itself, it has played an extremely important role as the faith from which Versatianism was born.

Infinite Permutations of Reality

Achist cosmology is based on two fundamental precepts. The first is that the Universe is Infinite. By this meaning, the Universe is without end in all dimensions. While traditionally the Universe would be identified as only physically infinite, modern formal Achist theological reasoning implies that the Universe is infinite in any number of distinct ways, most notably Physically and Temporally, but also Metaphysically, Emotionally, and Conceptually.

The second precept is that the Universe is Chaotic. In this case it means that things exist in random patterns, the combinations of completely random things.

These two precepts combine to form an understanding of an infinitely complex universe in which everything that could exist, has existed or will exist at some point in the infinite time of the Universe. Essentially, everything that is possible is. This concept is called the Infinite Permutations of Reality, and it underlines most if not all Achist thinking.

The Bipartite Soul

Achism outlines an understanding of a Bipartite Soul, or a soul containing two parts. In the Achist understanding, these two parts are the Virtue and the Authority, which together make up the identity of the individual being, human or otherwise.

The Virtue of a soul is the goal or goals of that being. Generally considered to be hyperabstractions (A Virtue is not "to make money" or even "Prosperity" but rather something roughly like "To Have"), Virtues are the ideas that the being consciously or unconsciously works to bring about across existence.

On the other hand, the Authority of a soul is the amount of "Power" that soul has to instill its values into the world. Like its Virtues this description is extremely abstract, serving as more a generalized idea of potential to change things, rather than any specific metric of power.

Every being has both a Virtue and an Authority, which together make up the fullness of their identity as a conscious being.
