Here’s everything you need to know about Cometan from his biography, early life, personal life, age, height and so on.
Cometan, honoured in different religions and philosophies as Cometan the Contemplator, is a British Astronic philosopher, religious leader and scholar, as well as a revivalist known for founding Astronism from the age of fifteen and for naming and organizing the Astronic tradition of religion and philosophy.
One of Cometan’s most important contributions to religious scholarship has been his historiographical delineation of the origins and legacy of the Astronic tradition of religions that began with a series of astronomical religions and cults in the Upper Palaeolithic period of the Stone Age about 40,000 years ago. This makes the Astronic tradition the oldest in history and it is to this tradition of religion that Astronism belongs.
Cometan first dedicated himself to a public life on the day of his fifteenth birthday when he received his first revelation about the fictional character, Jesse Millette, and that he would become a great author.
Quickly following this, Cometan’s inspirations turned to the topics of religion and philosophy and he began to experience, on a constant basis, extreme contemplations and revelations about the future of religion, the destiny of humanity to explore deep space, and the importance of the stars and all that is astronomical to the context of both philosophy and religion. Following two years of experiencing these kinds of ideations (known as inducies in Astronism), Cometan decided to start compiling them into written form. The Founding of Astronism had begun.
Following his initial decision to start writing his revelations down, Cometan began to experience even more revelations that were markedly refined than his original series of ideations. From the age of seventeen, Cometan began writing his inspirations down, but they accelerated in quantity so much so that by the time he was twenty-two, Cometan had written a book which he titled simply the Omnidoxy and that stretched to over two million words in total length.
As a result, the Omnidoxy became the world’s longest religious and philosophical treatise and propelled Cometan to global fame. Cometan stood out as a prodigy of theology and philosophy, particularly for his unique astronomical take on religion as well as his development of a new branch of philosophy which he called cosmontology, but which may be colloquially referred to as cosmic philosophy. Comtan became the new young face of religion in the 21st century during a time in which religiosity was declining in the United Kingdom, but Cometan sought to rejuvenate and revive religion through his founding of Astronism and through his re-popularization of astronomical religions.
Cometan’s Birth & Childhood
Cometan was born Brandon Reece Taylor to his mother, Louise J. Counsell and to his father, Sean Frederick Taylor, on 1st July 1998 at the old Sharoe Green Unit of Royal Preston Hospital in Lancashire, England.
He grew up in and around the city of Preston alongside his older sister, Lucia Natalie, and his many cousins, most prominent of whom were Martin and Thomas Taylor. Much of Cometan’s weekends were spent with his paternal grandmother at 222 Longmeanygate, a detached residence with extensive grounds and fields were Cometan played in the summer months. Cometan’s grandmother, Irene Mary Taylor, was a deeply devout Roman Catholic whose entire house was a shrine and statement to her faith.
This deep religiosity would have a significant impact on Cometan’s development and from his adolescence onwards, would act as the main trajectory of his life.
Cometan spent so much time at 222 Longmeanygate with his grandparents and cousins because his mother and father separated when he was four years old. He continued to live with his mother and his older sister at 10 Maple Drive in Bamber Bridge, but at the weekends, his father took him. However, due to Cometan’s father’s own lack of a strong father figure in his life, he didn’t know what to do with Cometan, he did know how to create a bond with him. So, naturally, Cometan’s father began sending him to his grandmother’s at Longmeanygate. This developed into a kind of tradition and structured Cometan’s entire weekend. He got to the point were he would rather spend time with his grandmother and cousins at Longmeanygate than spend time with his father.
Cometan’s grandmother took him and his cousin, Thomas, on my trips out to surrounding towns and cities from Blackpool to Wigan to Manchester to Southport. Cometan held many memories of that time as it was integral to his development. Cometan’s grandmother also to him and his cousin to various churches across Lancashire and Catholic religious institutions from Greygarth Hall to the Convent of the Good Shepherd, both of which are in Manchester. Visiting these religious institutions gave Cometan a deeply spiritual upbringing although he never really showed a deep interest in religion and spirituality until he was fifteen years old.
The other aspect of Cometan’s childhood was the life he had with his sister, Lucia Natalie and his mother, Louise J. Counsell following the separation of his mother and father when Cometan was four years of age. Cometan also became very close with his maternal grandparents, Bill and Hilda Warbrick, who cared for Cometan like their own son throughout his childhood, his adolescent years, and even during his early adulthood, supporting his work to do his Masters’ Dissertation and P.h.D. From 2007 on wards, his mother and his father had both re-coupled and began having their own children which signalled a new phase for Cometan’s childhood, one that welcomed six new people into his life, all of whom would have incredible impacts on how he acted as an older brother.

What Is Astronism?
Astronism is a cosmocentric philosophy or religion that Cometan founded through his authorship of the Omnidoxy and through his related efforts of religious scholarship, advocacy, and his public life as the figurehead of the religion to disseminate its beliefs and ideas globally. Astronism is a religion that is a product of its time. In early 21st century England, religiosity was rapidly decreasing while rates of atheism and non-theism were on the rise.
Founding Astronism during this time meant that Cometan had to consider the direction in which public opinion was swaying. Cometan knew that even those who had renounced all religion continued to crave some source of existential purpose and meaning to their lives.
And so, Astronism became a naturalistic system described as a balanced combination of both religion and philosophy. Fundamentally, Astronism emphasised a person’s spiritual relationship with the stars and called for a revival of the prehistoric astronomical religions that is claims to be descended from. It is for this lack of emphasis on the existence of God that Astronism is seeing rapid growth amongst the atheist and agnostic communities of the world.
