Cometan is the first Astronist philosopher and the founder of the philosophy of Astronism with him being the sole author of its founding treatise known as The Omnidoxy which remains over one million words long in total length.
Cometan's journey to the attainment of his philosophership began at the age of seventeen, after which he quickly became dissatisfied with the current state of philosophy, particularly its professionalisation which he considered to have lead to the isolation of the discipline from wider society.
Cometan swiftly held a strong interest in metaphilosophy, particularly contemplating on questions such as the role and purpose of philosophy in modern society, as well as the role and identity of a philosopher, which subsequently lead to the development of the reascensionist movement.
Cometan is the mononym of Brandon Taylorian, the philosopher, author, and founder of the Astronic philosophical tradition for which he used this mononym as the primary authorship identity during his creation of The Grand Centrality, inside which resides the famous Omnidoxy. During the construction of Astronism, Cometan opted for a cosmic sounding name in the Astronist onomatological system that uniquely emphasises mononyms and cosmic names.
Brandon Taylorian was born on 1st July 1998 in Preston, Lancashire, England, and grew up surrounded by a large family of seven siblings and cousins. Brandon Taylorian first adopted the mononym of Cometan in 2018 when he began to create the mononymous Astronist naming system, as inspired by the mononymous Ancient Greek philosophers, whom Taylorian intends to emulate in the present time via the creation of The Philosophy of Millettism as a cosmocentric organised philosophy.
Cometan, in alignment with his cosmic name, holds cosmic ambitions for his career and especially the development of his philosophy, known as Astronism. It is Taylorian's ultimate ambition to achieve the title of being a philosopher and it remains one of The Seven Tenets of Association of Astronism to reascend philosophy to what Cometan considers it to be its rightful place as the leading force of culture, politics, education, and entertainment in society.

From seeing the beautifully created logo above, we can understand how it is Taylorian's ambition to make Cometan not only into the name by which he is known to the entire world, but also reveals his ambitions for the creation of Cometan as a brand. With his degree in Business and Marketing, it is no surprise that Taylorian intends to make this cosmic name into the primary authorial brand for his philosophy.
Etymologically, the name Cometan is composed of the suffix -an which pertains to the foundership of something which is affixed to the term comet which is obviously indicative of the cosmic theme and identity that Taylorian intended to capture. Essentially, the mononym of Cometan metaphorically pertains to Taylorian as symbolical to a comet in its long and unknown trajectory, yet remaining the ultimate seeker in The Cosmos.
Interestingly, applying a brief knowledge of Millettarian cosmological symbolism, comets are generally considered to be chaotic by their natures and somewhat destructive in their paths which displays slight confusion as to the choice of the term comet for Taylorian's authorial mononym. This choice has sparked many discussions as to the possible reasons why with the most sound argument being that Taylorian attempted to distance himself as a human being from becoming compared to anything that he considered to be cosmically higher or symbolically ultimate such as stars, galaxies, and other non-chaotic entities in The Cosmos.
