And the brown-eyed people; they're not going anywhere either.

Thank you, it never says anything of the sort, but makes me feel better none the less. lol.

It never says what the guru does after the first people leave. It does say that the guru is allowed to speak once per day. The guru only has to say the wrong sentance, "I see brown eyes", for instance.

The guru on the other hand has different colour eyes to everyone else and no way of finding out what colour they are

No, the guru can only speak once ever.

The Guru is allowed to speak once (let's say at noon), on one day in all their endless years on the island.

this looks true.. which means the answer i read is not possible, so anything is back in the question!

Edit, re-read it and it works again!

And no, its not the ferry man

Because the guru can only speak once the solution is possible.

I did edit my post afterwards haha

Good luck anyone trying to work it out though, the solution is almost as hard to work out as the puzzle!
