The Bourn is a statement of your purpose, and therefor we cannot tell you what it means. However, if you know your purpose, you'll receive a $99,800 discount code. We can only tell you what the Bourn is and what it is designed to mean. It is an interactive totem of spiritual significance to only you. It is comprised of two pieces of solid brass, a square of leather and the eVr1 Canon written upon a tiny storage device.
Each piece comprising the Bourn has a particular meaning:

What if I don't have a purpose? That's ok, most folks don't know their purpose. However, you do indeed have a purpose, one that is distinctly yours and yours alone. You just haven't yet cleared the path for its revelation. And clearing this path is straight forward if you follow the steps outlined in Tim Kelley's "True Purpose" book and Rod Stryker's "Four Desires" book. True Purpose is a practical, easy to read guidebook that gently guides you through a series of exercises to reveal your purpose. If you're starting from scratch, it is recommended you give yourself one month to work through the exercises in Tim Kelley's book, slotting 20-40 minutes each day to complete it.
It symbolizes your commitment to your purpose and its expression in the world. You can keep it in your pocket as totem like Leonardo DiCaprio did in Inception, on your desk, in your car. The Bourn is purposely designed to be heavy, such that you are consistently reminded to recenter and recommit to your purpose and the whole of the human story. It is your totem, your covenant, binding your purpose to the world soul. Play with it, love it, worship it, space out to it.
"Woven into the fabric of your soul image is a mysterious symbol or them that holds the secret of your life purpose." Bill Plotkin
Further because it contains a 32GB Micro SDHC card, you are able to cut open the seal, download the contents and add your own data to the card, such as your purpose essay, family tree, marital documents, photos, family history, etc. It comes with a reseal kit and instructions. As with all eVr1 products, the Bourn grants you lifetime access to the eVr1 online community of purpose filled humans, password protected access to the eVr1 Canon for downloading.
The Bourn is made from the eVr1 Canon, written upon a 32GB chip, two pieces of solid brass with a 3/4" closure diameter, a envelope of natural vegetable tanned leather (we use scrap whenever possible), a manual and a reseal kit.
