Cometan is the founder of the religion of Astronism and the sole creator of the Spacefaring World franchise. Cometan was born in the city of Preston in the English county of Lancashire in the United Kingdom on 1st July 1998.
From the day of his fifteenth birthday, Cometan received an intense of revelations and ideas across a seven year period know as The Founding of Astronism. He applied these ideas and revelations to create the foundations of the Astronist philosophy and religion. During this time, Cometan became an autodidact and a prodigy of philosophy and theology.
Cometan began writing the Omnidoxy at age seventeen which became one of the longest books in history at around one and a quarter million words long. Cometan also became the world’s youngest religious leader and the first Astronic philosopher as a result of his organisation of the Astronic tradition, a new category of religions and philosophies to sit alongside the Abrahamic and Dharmic religions based around an astronomical theme.
After another series of intensive ideations, Cometan created the Spacefaring World franchise, a futuristic pseudo-fantasy based on humanity’s initial endeavours in space exploration. This fictional universe and the book series and characters within it allowed Cometan to convey an Astronist prophecy of humanity’s inevitable future in a cosmocentric society.
Cometan became the first person to base his rationality of space exploration on religious grounds. Cometan also considered the future of religion to be based on commercialisation and he foresaw the resurgence in popularity of long-persecuted astronomical religions and the introduction of new astronomically-themed religions with Astronism being the progenitorial religion.
