      Fascinating! Definitely deserves an update too, I’ll set a reminder for February 2021. That’s another magical thing technology can do.

      I could not stop reading this - enthralled! Such a sad mystery. The process of tracking down information and clues is fascinating - impressive. I would love to know more about Mostly Harmless.

      Great Read!

      1. Update (11/7/2020):

        If u are an Artistic Foreign Film Lover this article brings to mind an Incredible Magical Realism (largely set meditatively in Nature) film from Portugal called The Ornothologist. Cinematically Rich. I adore it. Viewed it multiple times. Highly Recommended.

      2. Update (11/8/2020):

        Correction: The Ornithologist

      What a creepy end to his journey! The insight into how partial familial DNA tracing works was also super interesting. Hopefully they can track down the guy's immediate family and we can get an update to this story.
