Upon being the first Astronist, Cometan began to disseminate his ideas using technology and marketing techniques with the aim of reordering society according to the principles and beliefs founded in Astronism. His seminal work of philosophy and theology, the Omnidoxy, was the first account of Astronic thought and faith in history. Cometan experienced and attained an extensive series of personal inspirations from the age of fifteen to twenty-two and it was upon these forms of imaginative revelation that the founding treatise of Astronism was solely written and titled the Omnidoxy. It was after the Astronist religion’s founding that Cometan dedicated his life to disseminating
its ideas and beliefs globally for future generations both on and beyond the Earth in the spacefaring culture which he believed would inevitably develop as part of humanity’s destined trajectory. This endeavor was conducted through the religion’s governing an institution in which Cometan is also credited with establishing.
During this formative period, he decided to change his name from Brandon Taylorian to a mononym after being inspired by the mononymous names of the Ancient Greek philosophers and he chose the cosmically-themed mononym of Cometan to match the astronomical theme of his philosophy.
Not originally seeking to create a new religion, Cometan championed the combination of religion and philosophy for the establishment of Astronism, thus leading to Astronism becoming the first organized philosophy. By the age of 20, Cometan had completed The Omnidoxy which remains over 1 million words in total length. Not only had Cometan created a philosophy, but an entirely new understanding of what philosophy was and the role of a philosopher in the world which in turn formed the wider Millettic philosophical tradition. Afterward, Cometan founded and established The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism which holds sole proprietorship over all aspects of Astronism, including sole copyright to The Omnidoxy and Cometan's other philosophical works.
Family, Relationships, Personal Life
Cometan was born on 1st of July 1998 in Preston, Lancashire, England, United Kingdom and is now 20 years old. He is the son of Sean Taylor (Father) and Louise Counsell (Mother) who separated when their only son was just four years old. Cometan was closer to his cousins growing up than he was to his older sister, Lucia. Cometan has spoken of the fact that he remained of an “unknown identity” up until the age of fifteen when he had the idea for Jesse Millette. Up until that point, he never committed to any hobby, had few close friends other than his cousins, and held a generally unhappy personality. This was until he began to experience a series of personal inspirations when he was fifteen years old and after that, his creativity flourished which eventually lead to the development of The Original
Jesse Millette Series and the religion of Astronism. Cometan has been graced by having seven siblings in total on both his father and mother’s side; Lucia Richardson (born June 1, 1989), Kieran Taylorian (born February 6, 2007), Charlotte Counsell (born August 20, 2007), Kent Taylorian (born July 17, 2008), Zara Taylorian (born July 17, 2008), Jay Taylorian (born September 17, 2009), and Edie Taylorian (born February 27, 2011). Cometan was very close with his grandmother, Irene Taylor, when he was growing up and spent many weekends at his grandparents’ house at 222 Longmeanygate in Leyland, Lancashire. It has been said that Cometan’s fascination with religion stems from his grandmother’s strict adherence to Roman Catholicism. Although Cometan did not appreciate his grandmother’s religion when he was a young boy, only after her death did he begin to find an interest in the topics of theology and
philosophy. This eventually led him to study these topics autodidactically and he soon began to experience a series of ideations and inspirations about his fascination with the universe and astronomy. This lead to Cometan forming the philosophy of Astronism through his authorship of the Omnidoxy.
A famed Armenophile, Cometan held an instant affinity and curiosity towards the history and people of Armenia upon learning about the country during his formative autodidactic years. This lead to him eventually coming across a young woman named Liana Tiratsuyan whom he met in person almost one year later at Zvartnots International Airport in the capital city of Yerevan in December 2018. Cometan claimed love at first sight with Tiratsuyan and their week together in Yerevan was even granted the privilege of being chronicled in The Omnidoxy in the formation of
that which would be known as Cometanic love which encompassed the philosophical musings of Cometan on the topic of love. There is an iconic image of Cometan at the Armenian Genocide Memorial in Yerevan that has become a very famous image.
Creator of Jesse Millette
In addition to being the founder of Astronism, Cometan, under the pen name of Brandon Taylorian, is also the sole creator of the retro biographical and para biographical fictional mystery detective, Jesse Millette. The character first appeared in the book titled Jesse Millette and The Phantom’s Curse which Cometan published in 2017 at the age of nineteen. Jesse Millette is a mystery detective and a fictional reflection of the personage of Cometan for he is presented as a religious young man with intelligent, spirit, and imagination.
Other facts about Cometan
Cometan has been a member of the Royal Institute of Philosophy since he was twenty years of age and started playing the piano at age ten. He has been quoted as saying that he intends to become a composer one day after he has established his religion of Astronism because thinks that writing music to complement the beliefs of the religion will help people to understand its beliefs. Cometan is well traveled, having been to the United States twice already, China, Russia, Armenia, and various countries in Europe, but he wants to do more traveling. Cometan has been quoted as saying that he wants to visit every country in the world before he dies! The young philosopher and religious leader intend to develop his religion of Astronism by commercializing it into a new modern movement that mixes elements of religion and philosophy into one to form the world’s first organized philosophy.
Astronism is a widespread Cometanic religion or philosophy founded by the philosopher Cometan in North West England in the early 21st century. The majority of schools within Astronism affirm the existence of a creator god yet none place any identity to god, but instead give a central role to the doctrine of cosmocentrism; the belief that it is The Cosmos and all its progeny and phenomena which should become the most important elements of our spiritual, philosophical, religious and intellectual lives. The Seven Tenets of Association of Astronism state the religion’s core beliefs, including the affirmation that life of all kinds exists on other planets, that the answers to our existence and purpose of being can be found from within The Cosmos rather than from an unknowable god, the belief that philosophy should reassume its central role in all societies, that it is the destiny of humanity to explore The Cosmos to achieve transcension and that we are all individually responsible for contributing to this endeavor in our own unique ways.
