That's how Sanderson writes them talking about the universe at large. Another side effect of him treating it as a translation.

Lots of educated people cosmere aware or not reference the cosmere the same way we say universe.  Steris for example asks Wax if he thinks the cosmere has it in for him when referencing the fact that his luck is ridiculous when it comes to running into enemies/conspiracies.

Brandon seems to imply that Jasnah is at least partly aware of the cosmere at the end of this WOB here.

Does Dalinar know about Adonalsium? Stormfather dropped the term during one of their talks, so did he tell Dalinar the whole story of Shattering and Shards? Also, does he understand what exactly he did when summoned perpendicularity or not? Does he understand what’s going on with him now (that he’s connected with Honor’s remnants)? Does he even know what “Shard” means?

I guess, the question is “How cosmere-aware Dalinar is?”

Brandon Sanderson

As of Oathbringer, Dalinar isn't specifically aware of the larger cosmere story--though he would have numerous "Aha" moments if it were explained to him, as pieces of what he does know would fall into place. The Stormfather isn't particularly interested in the larger story, however, and that's one reason.

Jasnah is a different story...

I blame her conversation. You know the one. 

Spoiler

The one with Hoid, after she Elsecalls back to the Physical.
