I see the list is in alphabetical order. Should i search terms inside the A-B range? This is an exhaustive list?

Typo in the e. Is not bold.

This concept looks obsolete and looks like is only about Xenos.
Xenobiology and Astrobiology are different things.

Autoevolutionist: Someone who regards autoevolution as desirable; the opposite of a biological fundamentalist.

This looks like two definitions in one.

Corresponds to the traditional Hermeticist and Theosophist etheric and/or astral planes.

You could and hyperlink in etheric plane in case you didn't put the two miceoarticles on glossary.

The idea of memes in RL is highly discredited by now. I think this definition of a behaviour looks esoteric or just plainly weird or deterministic.

Both secular religions, like atheism, Buddhism, and Platonic Materialism, and supernaturalist religions, like Christianity and Solarism, are examples of a belief-system.

Typo: of of.

My idea of a meme is very different. I don't know if "infected" is still canon or is outdated.
