“I searched for isolation just so as not to be disturbed by the collective.”
–Bruno Borges, translated from the Portugeuse

And so my friends, who have stuck with me through all five months of The Mysterious Disappearance Of Bruno Borgeshe is apparently alive and well(-ish).

According to his family, Borges returned home Friday morning the 11th, though they are mum on further details. The young man had suddenly disappeared March 27, leaving behind a room filled with strange glyphs and diagrams drawn on the walls, a life-sized statue of Giordano Bruno, a painting of him with an extraterrestrial, and 14 books written in code.

Bruno Borges Book Becomes Bestseller

I sometimes feel, when writing about this Bruno Borges story, that it is sort of this “pre-planned” thing where every step along the story is like one more plot-point for this “movie”…he disappears, there is a media frenzy, his family publishes the manuscripts he leaves behind, the books become bestsellers, he becomes an internationally famous metaphysical writer/guru, and then one day he steps out of like this obscure gas station in Cincinnati with a baseball cap and a huge beard like Forrest Gump when he did that “running across the United States” thing and he reveals himself and like doves fly down from the sky at that moment and…

Anyway. That’s how it feels like following this story. I may have embellished a little bit.

Four months after he mysteriously disappeared from the Brazilian town of Acre, Bruno Borges is set to have one of the most anticipated book launches in the world.

On July 21, TAC – Theory of Absorption of Knowledge will be published by Borges’ family through Infinity Editorial and Marketing. It is the first of a projected 14-book series, decoded from spiral-bound hard copies the missing young man left behind. The art from the cover of the first volume was taken from a painting of a monk found on his wall. Borges even has his own logo now:

This may be exciting news for those who are following the Bruno Borges saga: his family recently made a deal with an as-of-yet undisclosed publisher to release his decoded books.

Borges made Brazilian headlines in March when he disappeared, leaving behind his room (sans furniture) looking like an occult temple and 14 mysterious books in code. These books will apparently soon be decoded—and available for all to read and consider.

Weird New Twists In Bruno Borges Case

Bruno Borges, just hanging out.

After what has felt like an impasse for almost two months, new twists and turns have emerged in the case of missing Brazilian psychology student Bruno Borges. And while I’m not completely surprised by these developments, I don’t feel they fully “invalidate” the esoteric interests of/theories surrounding this young man either.

Basically…investigators are starting to believe that the disappearance of Borges might have been a calculated “marketing stunt” to sell his books.

The Inevitable Bruno Borges/”13 Reasons Why” Crossover Video

It was only inevitable that the hit Netflix show 13 Reasons Why would collide with the Brazilian phenomenon that is the disappearance of Bruno Borges.

If nothing else, this new YouTube parody, “13 Reasons Acre” (Borges lived in Acre), is evidence of how much this particular news story blew up in Brazil. I also get a lot of visitors outside the U.S. in general who seek these posts on Borges out—but perhaps things are currently too weird in the United States for many people to take notice here.
