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 Institution 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 Cometanto 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.
His sole authorship of the founding treatise of the philosophy of Astronism known as The Omnidoxy and for his creation of the fictional mystery detective, Jesse Millette.
