To whom does KOSMOS have this meaning?
If your intent is to explore what you think the word KOSMOS means, then the
intent of the original author is not particularly relevant, and I readily
accept your assertion that you feel this word can have that meaning. If
your intent is to explore what the author meant by the word, then it can
only have that meaning if the author would have thought in those terms.
