Preternaturalism, in the context of Astronism, specifically in the discipline of propenology, is the belief stating that certain individuals have demonstrated abnormal abilities or have conducted actions beyond the capabilities of the majority of others. This includes a variety of different types of beliefs which are classified as preternatural and are distinguished from naturalism and supernaturalism certain individuals.

This term has become important in the context of the field of study known as comparative figures as it has allowed us to compare the differences between

Actions classified as preternatural from all the different religions include:

  • Apparitions (e.g. Marian apparitions at Fátima, Christophanies, and Mariophanies)

  • Clairvoyance

  • Divination (e.g. Astrology, oracle and other methods)

  • Enlightenment (e.g. Siddhartha Guatama in Buddhism)

  • Exorcism (e.g. Jesus in Christianity)

  • Faith healing (e.g. Jesus in Christianity)

  • Fortune-telling

  • Indrucy and inspiration (e.g. Cometan in Astronism)

  • Messianism (e.g. Jesus as the Messiah)

  • Precognition and prophecy

  • Retrocognition

  • Self-mortification (e.g. Siddhartha Guatama in Buddhism)

  • Stigmata (e.g. Padre Pio)

  • Surography (abnormal writing ability) (e.g. Cometan's authorship of the Omnidoxy)

  • Telekinesis

  • Telepathy

  • Transverberation – religious ecstasy

  • Ufology

  • Visionary and ecstasy (achieved through meditation, drugs, lucid dreams, daydreams, or forms of art e.g. Saint Bernadette, Hildegard of Bingen, Cometan, Joseph Smith) 

  • Weeping status (e.g. statues of the Virgin Mary)

Cometanic preternaturalism

Cometan's preternaturality or the miracles of Cometan has been a topic of great debate within Astronism since the biography of Cometan began to circulate and his proclamations of indrucy and surography emerged. These two phrases refer to a collection of beliefs involving Cometan as holding or demonstrating abilities that are verified as being preternatural.

Cometan has been verified as demonstrating two preternatural abilities by the Astronist Institution, the first of which is the series of indrucies that he experienced during his adolescent years throughout The Founding of Astronism era.

The second of Cometan's verified miracles or preternatural abilities is his surographical ability which is the ability to write extensively on a subject in circumstances of difficulty, such as being young, or having little knowledge on the subject, or writing an extensive piece in a short amount of time.
