Origin Overview

The mystery thriller novel Origin by Dan Brown explores the benefits of incredible technology while presenting a chilling warning that machines cannot make moral decisions. Edmond Kirsch, a billionaire computer scientist and futurist, hoped his presentation about the origin of man might unite the world. Instead, he was murdered just as he was about to make his great announcement. Instead of peace, Spain disintegrated into a country bombarded by the belief there was a conspiracy on the part of the Church to keep Kirsch silent. Themes in the novel include the conflict between science and religion, the dangers of artificial intelligence, and the world’s need for love and compassion.
