Cosmocentrism has multiple meanings:

Cosmocentric ethic[edit]

A cosmocentric ethic maintains that the natural state of the Universe should be preserved, without human attempts to terraform planets for human habitation. It is based off the idea that the Universe has some level of directionality that should not be interfered with or changed by humans. [1]

Cosmocentric, often spelled Kosmocentric (with a capital "K") describes a level of awareness (supposedly superior to egocentrism, ethnocentrism and anthropocentrism).
