2001, A space odyssey discussion
I was lucky to have a chance to watch Stanley kubrick's 2001: a space odyssey in one of
the best film projects, which I have ranked among my top three theoretical viewing achievements
so far in my life. The movie inspired me to purchase Michael Benson's then-latest book, a space
odyssey, on film making. Stanley Kubrick films mostly depict human brutality, war, and the
different ways how violence affects our social settings. In my view, 2001 is not mostly thought
according to these themes primarily. The film's bloodless increases still have moments showing
that Kubrick is looking at these themes in other dimensions and maybe, more obliquely. The
pieces are folded into brief scenes of action organized in a nice sequence of slow-moving beauty,
which music copied from Khachaturian and Strauss. the movie can has relation to the biblical life
of man.
Kubrick uses the best conventionally dissonant and distressing music to give the theme
for the awe-inspiring obelisks or the real spurring into the next level of human progression. It
was interesting to see how proto-humans encounters with the obelisk led to the evolution stage
where the first tools of making work easier were invented. However, these tools didn't perform
the expected duty of hunting. They were used for violence (Kubrick). Since the devices were
made of bone, some people had to die for more tools to be made. The bone-made tools led to
increased warfare since they were used to attack a rival tribe, and they also led to the murder of
the leader. the most remembered jump-cut advocates that Even a satellite is not morally neutral
always or that humans corrupt the technology, leading to a violent ending.

Supposing in the 2001 mythology, humans should have an alien technology or
intelligence to assist them improve to the next evolution stage, with the star child changing
presumably the eventual end. What proof do we have that humanity will vary from practicing
domination from deception and violence?. Are humans, in 2001, made by the evolutionary
transition to the extraterrestrial image or formed in the image and likeness of God?. The movie
cannot advocate for the survival of the fittest, but the aliens don't give the humans a choice; they
have to struggle to survive.
The personal attempt to develop better intelligence, HAL 9000, an excellent and well-
designed comprehension of humanity's technological ambitions, is ultimately revealed to be
insane, murderous, and paranoid (bronzite 3). This machine is created in man's image and copies
most of the human's traits. This development can be used to answer a question that rings in the
minds of many viewers of the movie that is technology inherent morally corrupt according to the
film? Once more, if the alien intelligence that leads to the development of the human brain
towards a more advanced and complex form of existence why is it that the technology that
obesity enlightenment results to the production of better means of violence?
It's significant that when the star child comes back to earth, the doesn't come back by
using a spaceship or a recognized modern technology. He comes back as a new form of a man
who is illuminated from within and beyond. As seen in the final poetic sequence at the white
room, the intelligence that makes Dave able to travel "beyond the infinite" is stripped away
gradually. His pod disappears first then after some time, his spacesuit also disappears.
One may say that humanity has no choice but to transcend the technology limits to
achieve humanity's evolutionary potential. Still, a question arises, is the hard part of the journey
