Brazilian Student Disappears Leaving Behind a Room Covered in Coded Texts and Occult Symbols


A Brazilian student has mysteriously disappeared, leaving behind a locked room covered in encrypted texts, 14 handwritten books and a massive statue of occultist Giordano Bruno.

Bruno Borges, a 24-year-old student from Brazil, reportedly vanished on March 27th after completing a secretive project consisting of thousands of pages of encrypted texts combined with mysterious symbols. Along with references to the Bible, alchemy, demonology and Leonardo da Vinci, Borges left a bizarre painting of him with an alien – prompting some people to conclude that he was … abducted by aliens.

Borges was reportedly asking people to invest in his secretive project without disclosing any information about it. He told his mother he was writing 14 books that would change humanity in a good way. After receiving $6500 (R$20.000) from his cousin, he was able to finish his project.

Here are pictures of this mysterious room.

Borges left 14 books full of encrypted text and occult/scientific diagrams.
All of the text in the books and plastered on the walls is written in code.
In the middle of the room stands a statue of Bruno Giordano that is worth several thousand dollars.
The statue stands on a complex diagram resembling the alchemical symbol of transmutation.
A shrine with the Virgin Mary.

Another bizarre painting depicts a cloaked figure with the same symbol as seen in the eyes of Borges and the alien. The figure holds a crux ansata (known as the Egyptian cross ankh). A Christian cross hangs on the wall. The entire room oddly blends Catholic imagery with occultism.

Here’s a video of the room in question.

The centerpiece of this room, the statue of Giordano Bruno, provides insight into the meaning of this entire setup.

Giordano Bruno was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, and cosmological theorist of the 16th century. He is mostly known for his unique combination of esoteric knowledge drawn from Hermetism, Egyptian magic and the Kaballah with theories on the cosmos and extra-terrestrial life.

“Giordano Bruno (1548–1600) is regarded among extraterrestrial apologists, secular and occult, as a free-thought martyr. Born in Naples, Bruno was a Catholic priest, Dominican monk, philosopher, hermetist, Kabbalist, mathematician, and astronomer. Influenced by Lucretius, his cosmology went well beyond the Copernican model by proposing that the sun was merely a garden variety star, and moreover, that the universe contained an infinite number of worlds populated by intelligent alien beings. Delving deeply into occult lore, Bruno preferred magical to mathematical reasoning. Bruno’s faith has been described as “an incoherent materialistic pantheism.” Moreover, Bruno argued that his beliefs did not contradict Scripture or true religion. Yet, this begs the question: What did he regard as true religion?

Bruno defined magic as “the knowledge of the science of nature.” Within the renaissance worldview, it was common to merge magic and science because both explore and seek to gain mastery over the structure of the universe. Similarly, religion and magic were conflated because both answered the ultimate questions and offered communion with the divine. Accordingly, for Bruno, magic was the tool for realizing the ends of science and religion. While it seems at odds with the cold, hard, materialist posturing we are accustomed to, naturalist scientists are the heirs apparent to many of the occult traditions.”
– Cris D. Putnam, Giordano Bruno

Frances Yates seminal work Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition further describes Bruno’s unique blend of esoteric magic and cosmology.

“Bruno was an intense religious Hermetist, a believer in the magical religion of the Egyptians as described in the Asclepius, the imminent return of which he prophesied in England, taking the Copernican sun as a portent in the sky of this imminent return. He patronises Copernicus for having understood his theory only as a mathematician, whereas he (Bruno) has seen its more profound religious and magical meanings.

Thus that wonderful bound of the imagination by which Bruno extended his Copernicanism to an infinite universe peopled with innumerable worlds, all moving and animated with the divine life, was seen by him—through his misunderstandings of Copernicus and Lucretius—as a vast extension of Hermetic gnosis, of the magician’s insight into the divine life of nature.

Giordano Bruno’s Egyptianism was demonic and revolutionary, demanding full restoration of the Egyptian-Hermetic religion.”
– Frances A. Yates, Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition

Author Karen Silvia de León-Jones believed Bruno was foremost a Kabbalist and concludes:

“Bruno is implementing those ‘angelic superstructures’ through which demons are controlled, and this is precisely demonic magic.”
– Karen Silvia de León-Jones, Giordano Bruno and the Kabbalah

Borges’ room is clearly a shrine to Giordano Bruno’s work with, possibly, some added insight.

Where is Borges?

Bruno Borges

Borges’ family are apparently shaken by the disappearance of the 24-year-old psychology student.

The student’s shaken businessman father Athos Borges, said he last saw his son when he left their family home in Rio Branco, Acre, without any money after lunch on March 27.

He said the family have received some information, but nothing concrete and nothing that would indicate what has happened.

He told : “We’ve tried to call him on his cell phone, but it’s off.

“He’s never gone before. He did not take anything and the last time we saw him he was leaving home.”

Borges mother, Denise Borges, told the Gaucho newspaper that the family had lunch together and that everything seemed fine.

She said: “He was clever. In school he was always different – a born leader with high powers of persuasion.

“He is such a kind-hearted boy.”

Mr and Mrs Borges had just returned from a month-long trip before his disappearance.

While they were away Borges’ sister Gabriela said her brother had isolated himself in his bedroom, which which he always kept locked.

Gabriella says she believes her brother has a “plan” and is working on publishing the 14 handwritten books found in his room.

She said: “We were very worried. Now we think he’s okay. He has a project, which is the publication of these 14 books. I think he had to do it that way.”

The 14 bound manuscripts – each with a Roman numeral on – were found in the room written in the same code as that on the walls.”

The Criminal Investigation Department (DIC) are investigating Borges’ disappearance. According to lead investigator Fabrizzio Sobreira, the case remains confidential, but all possibilities are being considered.

A photograph that allegedly shows one page of one of the books has appeared online and has been “decoded” by a Brazilian computer expert.

One passage supposedly says: “It is easy to accept what you have been taught since childhood and what is wrong.

“It is difficult, as an adult, to understand that you were wrongly taught what you suspected was correct since you were a child.

“In other words, if you fit into the system, your behaviour will be determined, making you at the mercy of beliefs already provided and well established in dogmas and rituals, with the masses.”

Interesting.. I’d like to see this guy decide more things

Student that likes to bring publicity to bis book


*decode lol not decide


He was probably ritually sacrificed.

Several of the symbols are taken from the cartoon Full Metal Alchemist

Lol, and where do you think that several of the symbols of FMA are from ?

yes. that circle arcana is the human transmutation circle of FMA. you can download all the arcane circles from deviant art. the thing that strikes me is the impeccable “handwriting”. all of this seem printed, too perfect to be anything else. i wager this is a hoax and a means to fame by piquing interest and mystery.

If it is, it’s quite well done 😉

Actually it is FMA that drinks from occultist language

Seems like the room is staged like an art show. As if he knew it would be photographed and written about.

Isn’t it obvious? He turned himself into the statue!

Brazilian media actually interviewed the artist who built the statue. He claims the student paid him in cash and says he was quite bright and claimed to have discovered a world shattering truth.

HAHA! 😀 it comes alive at night and can be seen roaming the halls

Lol! For sure!!

Several of the symbols are taken from the cartoon Full Metal Alchemist

NO. They are ancient symbols.

Whoever thinks Catholicism and occultism being mixed together is an odd thing, doesn’t know enough about the occult, or Catholicism and shouldn’t be writing about either, until doing proper research.

Probably thats not virgin mary, probably it’s nimrod and semiramis. They are the starters of the religion of Babylon.

The heavy use of rituals might be a clue to the heavy use of hypnotism.


Catholicism is older than all the other religions. The RC church owns almost all of the world with the exception of crown land which is owned by the harlot monarch of the church of England. Seriously if you know the history then you would know who the real culprit is. King Henry excommunicated Rome because of his lust and his love child becomes the monarch LMAO!! That’s the basis of the cultural identity of England and their anglo world. He banged both the Boleyn sisters. First was the regular whure and second came the conniving one who plotted and was used by dirty scumbag protestants looking for power. And that’s the bloodline that runs the anglo world lol… You know why the bankers, the military industrial complex, the police, corporations and just about any fringe group that pops up can s**t all over you? Because of the harlot that gets… Read more »

“Catholicism is older than all the other religions”


aLIEns, demons, nephilim, inter-dimensional beings. they are real. and NOT to be messed with. Jesus/Yeshuah and HIS power & protection is the ONLY REFUGE. say what you will, all the haters, scoffers and naysayers. HE IS REAL. HE IS ALIVE, … and He lives also in those born of His Spirit & Word. {2 Cor.5:17-21}. – IF you can receive it.
As to the question of “what happened to him”, … he either went nuts and “took off for parts unknown” due to obsession with the occult and “alien-powers”, … or he was abducted by the alien powers he obviously believed he was “receiving messages” from. Religion, EGO, and the occult are deadly mixtures. there ARE powers that are beyond the “merely human.” only the blinded do not know this.

quick question, if Jesus is the only refuge, what about the millions, if not billions, of people who have never heard of Jesus and likely never will? Many of these people lead good lives, in service to others and not the self, but according to you, won’t be “saved” bc they were indoctrinated into a different religion/faith? That doesn’t seem to make any sense to me. In my opinion, religion is mass mind kontrol, used to make you give up your power and give it to another. In your case Jesus is your Savior, when in reality YOU are your own Savior. Imagine if all the people worldwide who believe they’re saved through Jesus took back their immense powers as creator beings (Source made us in his/her image as it turns out) and starting using said powers to create a better earth, instead of waiting around for someone else to… Read more »
You sound like your eyes are half shut I really love how you people pick and choose which scripture you want to believe and adhere to. You believe humans are like some small Deities like demigods or something so the “GOD made man in his image” scripture really works for your “I’m my own savior” agenda. But GOD also said JESUS is the way the truth and the light none shall come through to the father except through Him (JESUS ) Without GOD there is no hope for humanity and since GOD and JESUS are one you cannot and will not be saved through anything else but HE who is to come if you can’t believe that then stop cherry picking and just believe completely or stay asleep and don’t believe at all. Oh by the way, the gospel of JESUS Christ has been spreading all over the earth for… Read more »

I like you. 🙂
You sound wide awake.
Need more like ya.

I like what you wrote. Also the Jesus character has been debunked. So they’re actually waiting on a man from a fairyrale.

of which you give no proof, dismiss. Go somewhere else with your fake biased cherry picked knowledge.

MANY won’t be saved as they are different from Christians ..and that makes the Christians feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Otherwise they’d deprogram themselves and not cling to their loyally and. IF they had a ounce of true compassion they’d spit in the eye of that god and seek out a more worthy one.

Looks like a scene from a movie based on a novel by Dan Brown.

Wait, someone with 14 books to sell is suddenly a topic?

What could it all possibly mean?

It’s possible this is staged for the purposes of viral publicity. … but the investigation needs to take its proper course. Here’s a possible scenario: he is returned (by his abductors) and becomes “a herald” or “a messenger” for the aliens and their “beneficent desires to help humanity in this difficult transition.” yeah. it could go in that direction.

Yeah, I’m with you – even if it’s all gobbledygook it’s a brilliant marketing scheme.

His father is an established businessman. A video of him focusing on the books rather than the disappearance of his son has gone viral here in Brazil. He didn’t come across as someone desperate to see his offspring back. He says in the video he knows the boy is alive and will respect his son’s “time”. The books are in the possession of the federal police, though.

Well.. I for one would rather see books written about the ‘bigger picture’ and Human potential in the public eye, over the s***e the elite push in order to sedate and desensitise the masses!

Maybe not aliens but secret services got him?

The room looks more like an “art installation” than the garret of a madman. If he is obsessive, he’s also remarkably careful and meticulous. Could it be part of a publicity scheme of some kind? Are any cryptologists working on the coded language? Are the symbols seen recognizable to occultists, or new variations on old themes? I would like to see more information on this if it becomes available.

He left a key to a very simple cypher. So it’s nothing really hard to read.

Seeing the pictures of this crazy room this really reminds me of manic depression. People who have this disorder can be really brilliant in their manic phases. They can think really fast and have brilliant insights. On the other hand, they can also make things up entirely. I’ve heard of a lady who was convinced she got the Nobel Price for an invention she made and that the president congratulated her for it. She could talk about it and you wouldn’t know she made it all up. Anyway, even if it was the case, that Bruno Borges (funny he has the same Christian name as Giordano`s surname) suffered from this manic depression, I would still be very interested in the meaning of this work. The decoded part, GreenTea copied here, sounds promising enough.
Goethe and Dickens supposedly suffered from the same disorder.

Unlike manics his room is readily organised and everything makes sense within reason. Not a typical depiction of a schizo. I showed this to my sister in law (a psychiatrist) and she agrees with me. Everything was logically prepared, studied and reasoned. Not your typical disorganised writing on the walls. It looks like it, but actually it isn’t. He even left a key to decode the books, a very simple code, so he just wanted to make sure people had the effort to read it.

This is either a great marketing ploy or this guy is just an intelligent college kid who came up with an artistic way to draw attention to his writing, which he might think is something genius.

Yes, I also thought of the manic frenzy state in which this work of art (because that is what it looks to me) could have been conceived. But some things were unclear to me… the numbered manuscripts, positioned in the scene. were part of the constellation. But is it his room in his ‘parents house, in which he locked himself up? It is all very intriguing… i hope to hear much more about it, and yes, more decodings!

He told his friends of his findings and actually told a close friend he’d disappear so that people could take notice of his work. He sold the furniture of his room during a 15 day vacation, when their parents were away. He commissioned the statue to an artist who was interviewed already by the Brazilian medica. The artist took cash Bruno got from his physician cousin and used about 30% of the $8,000 to produced the statue. There’s a Cicada 3301 symbol on the wall, which most people seem to miss, that could indicate he was selected by the mysterious group, which, by the way, is obsessed with transhumanism and alchemy. But the simples cypher he used in the books indicate he might not be the genius cryptographer he appears at a first glance.

Jeez that’s just weird!!

He was clearly on to something……

yeah. like Aleister Crowley and Jack Parsons. – remember also how THEY ended up.

World famous legendary figures?

Is it coincidence that his surname is…Borges? Had that controversial ancestors and being a magic enthusiast is very interesting for secret societes.

Someone like that is prone to impulsive decision as well as dangerous alliances. His parents have idealized him, and I can see why. What commitment! His ability and attention to his works is obvious. He is probably immersed in some rite that requires him to sever all contact with his previous life, but he may also have met some unsavory people and will be found face down in a ditch! People who isolate themselves, no matter how gifted they are, are not reasonable. It’s them against everything else. I used to be like that, and it makes you a little nuts after years of living that way.

Probably taken by the Illuminati.

This is completely staged psyop drama. Warming people up to the idea of E.T. encounters.

i dont know how to feel about this?!

PLS VC do NOT give free publicity to that guy! It turned out that that guy’s disappearance was just a publicity stunt just for the release of his book!! some of the alleged “ufo cryptic codes” are just code used by the boyscouts and some other symbols are just taken from different japanese anime!! almost every one here on South America already know about this facade!! 🙂

His family lighted that candle for his guardian Angel and putted the image of virgin Mary there. It’s not his.

It is almost summertime, a usually low period for political press. Pages need to be filled. Prepare to see this one on primetime soon. Mixed with horrors of terrorism, war, and pictures to promote stuff to buy, ofcourse.
Can we have a webcam on the statue, in case it starts crying ” spontaneously” ?

Reminds me of the Voynich Manuscript, except that this time, we know who wrote it.

This history has received a lot of attention here. Some people already said that’s a marketing to a nightclub’s family or it’s to sell his books… The boy didn’t even disappeared and his father knows where he is… So I don’t know…

Well, whatever it is, it’s very well elaborated. All of it looks very complex.

Oh I’m also from Brazil and I haven’t heard anything about this theory you just pointed out, but it’s a good point. This whole story has me shook to my core. I honestly don’t know what to think anymore, but the boy was on to something for sure. I really wish we could read his books to see if we could find some clues.

Are you able to translate what the woman in the video is saying, Kagomei? I take it she’s speaking Portuguese?

They are talking bullshit. Things like “the statue was about $20k”, “I saw a car here yesterday”, etc. Nothing relevant.

I heard Bruno’s case yesterday from a work colleague here too, but only cared when VC’s email arrived. Didn’t know about that nightclub info though. Odd.

where did you get your information? please share

publicity stunt. he’ll be along to explain it all soon

That shrine of the Virgin Mary isn’t a shrine, it looks like an altar from santeria or some ither religion based in africa that has embraced catholicism as a cover for their divine spirits. Mother Mary is a great cover for several pagan female dieties, and the glass of water and sacred geometry encircling the altar speaks even more to the fact of that not being a catholic shrine.

Suspiciously seemed like some kind of marketing gig for artwork or something

OT But, I cannot stand how every time I come to VC it freezes. I can only ever read a full article by putting airplane mode on 🙁

you forgot to mention giordano bruno was burnt at the stake by the inquisition…

I’m brazilian. This case is very simple. It is a charlatan who, together with his family (father, mother and sisters) wants to create an aura of prophet inspired by aliens. The goal is simply to attract idiots who will be your followers and will provide a lifestyle that he could not have honestly worked on. By the way, why work if you can take money from foolish people enough to be cheated?

You do realize his father is a well to do businessman owner of a major event’s venue, right? So highly doubt it this was made for money. This could very well be a stunt, I concede to that. And if this is a publicity stunt to promote his book, it will backfire as soon as it is revealed.

Don’t get why people would down vote your comment, when at present it is the most likely scenario. this coming from a person totally open to infinite possibilities in terms of our existence.

He could have used the “gone missing” to get free promotion for his findings, and push his books into the public.

The Brazilian jd Salinger

This is intriguing

Acre, the mysterious land.

It really is weird, where the heck did he go

He didn’t go anywhere. He just turned into a god damn statue….

How? Please explain.

This ties with that discovery of seven planets around a distant star. I’ve noticed many peters preparing for war of late.Borges went off on a pilgrimage, he wasn’t kidnapped.

Maybe he thinks he’s the reborn version of that statue-occultist-guy. They seem pretty similar. Or not. I don’t know.

On TV, the agent in front of the investigation said clearly that they’re dealing with the hypotesis that the guy went away on his own. They don’t quite believe he had disappeared and some people believe that it was all made up for some marketing campaign.

If you look at his Facebook ,many have commented on Bruno’s resemblance to his Italian namesake!! Bruno Borges was working on this secret project since 2013 and he borrowed the money from his cousin. According to other sources The walls and shelves were covered in writing, which consisted of careful and precise handmade copies of pages of the books also details are being kept secret by the police. BTW thank you VC for the article

I wish we had the “translation” of all of his books!!!!

An Apotheosis of some sort?

This is good! Just goes to show the show that occultism isnt evil; and that science and magic and even religion have a common thread.
the multiverse theory is so very likely. We just haven’t proved it yet – but haven’t disproved it either
This young man was/is onto something

Giordano BRUNO – BRUNO Borges…

You should know that our concepts of science and religion comes from the magic of the renaissance. The one word represents the two things in union. The why and the how.

Pretty sure this is just an art performance or whatever like that.

Oh wow -looked up images of Giordano Bruno and the two definitely look alike.

Interesting, it doesn’t look to be schizophrenia. Or maybe yes?

we all know what happens to ppl who cross demons after meeting them!

Can’t help but wonder if he’ll be eventually found dead too? Not unlike many a curious mind or a celebrity that has been priviously covered in your pieces. The powers that work behind the scenes can’t hide forever. Just like the saying: ‘three things can not long be hidden- the sun; the moon and the truth.’ Thank you again VC for being a fearless beacon of light in the darkness.

You guys should check out Dan Quayle’s True Legends series. I just watched True Legends – The Unholy See and it’s very well done. Makes a lot of connections similar to what this guy was maybe thinking about. It involves the Vatican, aliens, giants, the bible, forbidden history, etc. Very interesting stuff.

even if the writing was printed wall paper it would still take an amazing amount of time to put that all together.

Hmmm, it’s hard to believe his family did not intervene after looking in his room seeing cryptic signs ; the parents must have been too busy with their own careers to care. gotta admit, it sorta neat and organized. wish i could keep a neat room..

Interesting article and it seems quite clear he is “awake” but I really wonder where he actually is…
