Origins are a part of a subject that are truly mysterious, and always will be.
Often, the most difficult thing to understand about a person is who they are and where they are coming from - this is applied to other subjects too,
like the chinese olympic logo.
When one fails to make others aware of one's origins, then others can take it upon themselves to create one's origins for him.
Essentially creating an entire fabrication of lies, stopping the individual in question from ever having the possibility of exposing those lies
because of the simple fact that as a society, we don't tend to talk about our origins very much*.
This has been done in the context of the chinese olympic symbol (even if it is a parody, it is a parody of the creation of the symbol), for the intent
of causing shock.
Hench when you get individuals who ask a writer "And how did you come up with the title?" are then told random bull-honkey because the creator
can't be bothered to explain his inspiration to people who aren't going to listen and take his words seriously.
*After all, we don't actually know how the organisers came up with the idea for the emblem, do we?
