You do realize that "galactic" is severely limited

If I were looking to convey expansion to wholeness,

I'd call it "cosmic soma."

Without blatantly needing a spoiler for the technique, I'd say it'd best be described as the junction point between clusters of galaxies and the absolute (while at the same time holding the relative within awareness). It really has to do with the experiential expansion and what this does to limited conceptions we tend to maintain about our bodies rather than specific intellectual ideas about the physical universe. Cultivation of this paradox is necessary to not only establish the central channel, but also to allow soma to flow there.

 The word galactic is better because of the word "galaxy"  and it's derivation from of the Greek word for "milk" which also has allusions to the Vedic analogy of grass -> milk -> butter -> ghee (and numerous other poetic metaphors in Rig Veda for the refinement of perception). Also has to do experientially with the processes that occur in the crown chakra which I might simply call "Mother's milk".
