Exclusion from the Omnidoxy
Main article: Exclusion of the Astronicon
On 6th November 2021, the Astronist Institution announced that the Astronicon, whose publication as part of the Omnidoxy had previously been delayed due to Cometan's other commitments, would not be included as part of the Omnidoxy overall. The Astronicon will therefore be published at a later time although verification yet as to whether it will appear as part of the upcoming Astrodoxy has not been made. The primary rationale behind the Astronicon's exclusion from the Omnidoxy was cited as the fact that because the initial ideation for the Astronicon emerged either very close to the publication of or even after the publication of the Omnidoxy in February 2019, its publication as part of the initial publication of the Omnidoxy was not possible. However, although it was planned that Cometan would write the Astronicon shortly thereafter, the events of the Interdoxical Period occurred which brought about fresh commitments for Cometan and therefore relegated the Astronicon to a lesser priority. As the Interdoxical Period has now ended and the Astrodoxical Period has begun, the writing of the Astronicon under the now well-passed Omnidoxical Period and writing style seemed inappropriate. As a result, Cometan and Institutional staff decided that the Astronicon will not be published as part of the Omnidoxy which makes the Omnidoxy's final word count just over 1.7 million words and therefore the second longest religious/philosophical text after the Mahābhārata. Because the Astronicon's publication as part of the Astrodoxy still remains unconfirmed the canonicity of the Astronicon, namely its position and classification in the context of the Canon of Astronism, is regelated and is in dispute.
