本源 | Origin by Dan Brown

Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.

As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.

Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Langdon and Vidal must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace itself... and who will stop at nothing to silence Edmond Kirsch. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon and Vidal uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery... and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.

哈佛大学符号学专家罗伯特·兰登受邀前往西班牙毕尔巴鄂古根海姆博物馆出席一场重大的发布会。他二十年前的学生——如今已是享有国际声誉的计算机专家、未来学家——埃德蒙·基尔希将要揭开一个惊人的发现,它关系到人类长久以来未能解开的两大难题:我们从哪里来?我们要往哪里去?

活动一开始,兰登和数百位听众就被埃德蒙的精彩演说所深深吸引。但突如其来的混乱破坏了这场精心策划的晚会——埃德蒙被一颗从暗处飞来的子弹击中头部。

埃德蒙究竟发现了什么?为什么有人要杀他?为了解开谜团,不让埃德蒙的伟大发现就此销声匿迹,兰登和博物馆馆长安布拉· 维达尔逃离毕尔巴鄂来到巴塞罗那,却遭到西班牙王室和教会的阻挠,而杀手的追杀以及当地警方的追捕更是让他们命悬一线……

在埃德蒙发明的人工智能程序“温斯顿”的帮助下,两人最终在一首诗里找到了解开埃德蒙发现的密码,以及我们一直不敢直面的真相。
