Every once in a while, just as a “pet project,” I check in on the status of the Bruno Borges story. Borges was the Brazilian young man who disappeared last March, leaving behind a temple-like room filled with encrypted books and a life-sized statue of philosopher/occultist Giordano Bruno. In his absence, the first of the books in his series—TAC – Knowledge Absorption Theory —was translated and published as a bestseller.
Borges reappeared in August of 2017, and has had a mixed reaction to the spotlight. In addition to facing some criticism of his book (at least in the mass-media), he apparently now has to contend with one of his friends suing him for a cut of the publishing rights.
