From the day of his fifteenth birthday, Cometan dedicated himself to a public life as a philosopher, religious figure and astronomer through his exploration of the universe's deepest questions, hence why he is also known as Cometan the Contemplator.
After receiving a series of intense receptions from age fifteen about the future and destiny of humanity to explore and discover the mysteries of The Cosmos, Cometan forged a new religion named Astronism that is now challenging the stereotypes of what it means to be religious, philosophical, spiritual, or otherwise.
Since his very first revelation took place, Cometan's mind has expanded to unprecedented heights leading to several achievements as a prodigy and autodidact of theology and philosophy. The world's newest visionary, Cometan intends to further diversify the beliefs of Astronism and to promulgate them globally.
To allow for his deeply philosophical ideas to appeal to a wider audience, Cometan created a unique fictional universe called the Spacefaring World whose premise is set during humanity's impending and prophesied departations into space.

Cometan's Great Dedication
Incumbential event depicted: Dedication of Cometan

Published: 29th April 2021
On the night of the 1st July 2016, as the clock stroke midnight and Cometan entered adulthood, he peered towards the astral night sky above him and felt astronality at a level higher than ever before. In this moment of pure, personal connection to the astronomical world, Cometan knew deep in his heart that his endeavour to establish the Astronist religion was not in vain, but that it would take his entire adult life to make his cosmic message known to the world. It was to this great journey that he dedicated himself while ruminating on the mysteries of The Cosmos.
