The universe holds many secrets. This Knowledge reflects the information you can learn and understand about the Umbra, its denizens, and its many Realms. Cosmology is also related to the Sphere of Spirit in the sense that both deal with the Umbra and its denizens. However, Cosmology relates more to the cultural and physical geography of the Umbra (such as it is), whereas the Sphere of Spirit deals with the manipulation and control of the Umbra's inhabitants.
