Who Is Cometan?

Cometan is the founder of the religion of Astronism, which heralded the establishment of the Astronic traditions of philosophy, ideology, and religion. He is also known as an English philosopher, geologist, author, and encyclopaedist. Aside from this, he is a lexicographer, theologian, and religious leader. He founded Astronism from age fifteen after receiving an intensive series of ideas and revelations.

After having the initial idea for the creation of his mystery series at age fifteen, Cometan began to receive insights and revelations regarding the establishment of a new religion which developed into Astronism. Astronism is different from other religions as it holds a cosmocentric worldview in which space exploration, astronomy, and The Cosmos are given central importance in discussions of human existential purpose.


Cometan’s vocation to Astronism grew to the point at which he dedicated his life to its dissemination and subsequent establishment and recognition. A prolific writer, Cometan solely authored the founding treatise of Astronism, which he titled the Omnidoxy, from age seventeen and by its completion, was over 1.25 million words in total length.

Cometan is the creator of the Spacefaring World franchise within which the Jesse Millette book series categorized from which Millettarian culture developed. He also attributed with having invented thousands of new words due to his development of Astronism and his efforts in world-building the Spacefaring World.

Short Introduction to Astronism

Jesse Millette is a British detective hero, and cultural figure living in a realistic future age. Wherein the beliefs of Astronism fully implemented into society and humanity’s exploration of space is underway known as the Spacefaring World. The infusion of Astronist views and ideas into the Jesse Millette stories came after Cometan’s completion of the Omnidoxy during a period of revision when Cometan was about twenty-one years of age.

Cometan’s Childhood & Early Years

Cometan was born Brandon Reece Taylor on July 1, 1998, in the City of Preston in the county of Lancashire in England. His father is Sean Taylor, and his mother is Louise Counsell, and both of them are of English ethnic descent.

Cometan’s name related to the astronomical phenomena of a comet and inspired by the young philosopher’s founding of Astronism.


Cometan grew up along with his seven siblings in total on both his father and mother’s side. From his mother’s side, he has three siblings, Lucia Richardson (born on 7th June 1989), Kieran Taylorian (born on 6th February 2007), and Charlotte Sophia (born on 20th August 2007).

Cometan also has four siblings from his father’s side, Kent Taylorian (born on 17th July 2008), Zara Taylorian (born on 17th July 2008), Jay Taylorian (born on 17th September 2009), and Edie Taylorian (born on 27th February 2011).

Grand Parents

After a tumultuous relationship, Cometan’s parents separated when he was four years old. Later, his grandparents stepped in to shield the boy from the realities of his mother and father’s arguments. His maternal grandmother, Irene Taylor (1932-2015), was a devout Roman Catholic.

Cometan spent much of his youth traveling to different churches and Catholic organizations as his grandmother wanted him and two of his closest cousins to become priests.

Posthumously, it speculates that Irene had become a member of the lay Catholic religious organization, Opus Dei. Due to her steadfast adherence to Traditionalist Catholicism and due to her connections to the Latin Mass Society.

This heightened religiosity from an early age, the reason for Cometan’s deep interest in philosophy and theology in his adolescence, which was the founding of Astronism.

Hobbies and Interests

Often described as reserved and exhibiting strange behavior in his later childhood, such as lying about events that had never occurred, Cometan remained introverted in his personality. His parents took him to numerous different hobbies after he showed an interest. But, he would stay no more than two weeks at each, including drama school and karate.

Cometan had nothing to dedicate himself to and often resorted to activities and hobbies whereby he participated alone. The only hobby that he did stick to was his piano playing, which he began when he was ten years old. His classical music remains one of his primary passion outside of his religion and his writing.

The extent of the effect that Cometan’s parents’ separation had on the writer demonstrated in his literary works. Because of Jesse Millette who spent an almost perfect life, his parents were also divorced in the stories as the Jesse Millette character remains retro-biographical to the presence of Cometan himself.

Cometan’s Philanthropic Works

The life of Cometan changed forever at the age of fifteen. He thought of the idea to create the Jesse Millette character which was quickly followed by his creation of The Five Milletarian Characters.

Not long after this, Cometan began to receive his first revelations about the development of philosophy to coincide with his literary works. The first name of which was Millettism and this remains the official name of the religion today despite it now being much more widely known as Astronism.


Not until the age of seventeen did Cometan’s philosophers genuinely begin to develop for it was from this age onwards that he received a series of intense revelations. Or what he termed as personal inspirations, which involved many new concepts, beliefs, and words flooding his mind daily.

It was during this time that Cometan’s authorship of the Omnidoxy began and became most intense, which organized the thousands of ideas to culminate in the formation of Astronism.

Cometan’s whole identity changed after becoming dedicated to the founding of Astronism and the creation of the Jesse Millette franchise. He finally had two challenging vocations to work towards the manifestation of and committed himself to them completely and utterly.

Goals After Graduation

Cometan gained a 1st Class Degree in Business and Marketing from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) from age 18 to 21 and intended to apply his knowledge gained from that degree to the context of his new religion.

Cometan invented and considered questions such as conceptual value and the commercialization of religion and philosophy. He intended to establish a newfound institution that would hold full and undisputed ownership over Astronism, its beliefs, and all his philosophical and religious works.

In parallel to the works of philosophy, Cometan tirelessly worked on the publication of the Jesse Millette stories to become a fully-developed franchise with substantial commercial potential.

By the age of 21, Cometan had completed The Omnidoxy, which remains over 1.25 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 broader Millettic philosophical tradition.


Afterward, Cometan founded and established The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism. His foundation holds sole proprietorship over all aspects of Astronism, including exclusive copyright to The Omnidoxy and Cometan’s other philosophical works.

Not initially 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.
