The Omnidoxy is the primary document within The Grand Centrality that forms the conceptual, orientational, and structural foundations of The Philosophy of Millettism. Partitioned according to twelve disquisitions which are further divided into hundreds of discourses, themselves titled by rubrals, The Omnidoxy is codified according to a unique writing structure known as insentence.
The authorship of The Omnidoxy rests with a single individual, the author and philosopher, Cometan, who began writing The Omnidoxy at the age of seventeen through personal inspiration.
The Omnidoxy remains the principal founding book of the Millettarian philosophical tradition and was the first text to introduce the concept of cosmocentricity, as well as the introducer of hundreds of belief orientations, schools of thought, and disciplines of study along with thousands of concepts and notions that subsequently formed the basis of The Philosophy of Millettism.
The discipline of study known as omnidoxicology relates to the formal academic study and contemplation of The Omnidoxy by philosophers, scholars, and academics while that which is known as omnidoxical studies refers to the study of The Omnidoxy by ordinary people.
The historical origination of The Omnidoxy rests in its authorship by Cometan during early 21st century England, specifically in the northern county of Lancashire. Like in all textual criticism, the timing and location of the codification of The Omnidoxy is integral to understanding why and how it was written, especially by considering the influential factors impacting Taylorian during his construction of the text, particularly the cultural, political, religious, and social contexts of Taylorian's personal life and of wider society at the time.
This forms an important branch of study within omnidoxicology known as omnidoxical criticism, or omnidoxical exegesis in which scholars study and investigate The Omnidoxy in order to discern conclusive judgements inspired by how, where, why, by whom, for whom, and in what circumstances The Omnidoxy was written.
The term "omnidoxy" originates from the founding of The Philosophy of Millettism and combines the prefix "omni-" meaning all, or of all things, and the suffix of "-doxy" which, in a Millettarian terminological context, refers to knowledge imparted through written means.
Combining this prefix and suffix, the term "omnidoxy" is formed and therefore means all knowledge, or knowledge of all things, imparted through a treatise. Essentially, the "omni-" element of the appellation refers to the encompassing nature of the text while the "-doxy" element refers to the text's educative and imparting personality.
