Dear fellow Flynn fans,

in the new book from Dan Brown “Origin” there is a cross reference to one of Flynn`s favourite paintings: Paul Gauguin`s “D’où venons nous ? Que sommes nous ? Où allons nous ?”.

Without giving away the cliffhanger storyline, the central theme circles around the essential human questions “Where do we come from?” and “Where are we going to?” and amazingly comes up with answers, Errol so desperately was looking for all his short and sensational life.

In a nuts-shell the universe is thriving for entropy- for expanding and exhausting its energy and we all serve faithfully as outlets. This path may well turn us into a technically enhanced species in the future.

Basically we start out as Errol Flynns and end up as Rick Deckards.

For more on the metaphors within the masterwork watch this:…

So this is where you’ve been, South Seas Shangheinz, searching for answers to all the Big Questions and becoming even more Erroldite! As Gaughin used to say to all his topless Tahitian models: Māuruuru Māuruuru roa.
