Some Penguins are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.

But none of these applied to Dave.

No, for him, greatness was an experience package, delivered from the collective penguin mind to him by mistake. It was big, heavy, with thousands of parts inside that smashed together alarmingly when you shook it. There was no obvious contact number or return address, and frankly the thing could have been for anyone.

What Dave had actually ordered was a surfboard, a fishing rod, two tickets to a warm remote beach, and a simple life. What he got, was ultimate knowledge, a vast management problem, responsibility, and a bill for insufficient postage.

Such was life these days.

Yes, Dave was a penguin, an emperor penguin, and a smart one at that, having the most extreme ongoing so called ‘spiritual’ experience imaginable. Yet nobody could give a logical explanation as to what it actually was, what it was about, and what it meant.

Yes, he may know all the answers to life, the universe and everything, from quantum physics, psychology, biology, philosophy, natural sciences, technology etc. ... and yes, every day of his life now read like a Dan Brown novel, but he was just a penguin after all, in a simple world of ice snow. So even though he ‘knew all’, knew there was no penguin god, what could he do about it all.

The answers he finds are beyond anything, and more than a bit surprising.

About the Author

Nick Sambrook has science degrees, higher management qualifications, run large European projects, programmes, owned companies internationally etc. But frankly that’s a bit boring.

As a young boy, the world, and what people believed made no sense to him. He had a good imagination, and made up stories, mainly to get out of trouble, which never worked.

He’s grown up now, learnt many things, seen much of the world, is wiser, and has many responsibilities. Now it all makes sense to him, and he knows, in detail, why the world is the way it is. Hopefully his storytelling ability has improved.
