This year, 2001, a space odyssey ” celebrates its 50 years and we still find it hard to believe that it is so old, as it still stands as the road. It was perhaps due to the mystery that surrounds it.
The masterpiece is of Stanley Kubrick is one of the most important films in the history of cinema, just as it has influenced science, by its mere existence, this is no doubt. But 2001, a space Odyssey is one of those rare gems that can give rise to all the possible interpretations and still retain its meaning.
Indeed, one is reminded that Stanley Kubrick had always refused to provide us with an explanation of his film, and mainly its end with the fetus in space, which give free rein to everyone to make his or her own personal theory. From theology to metaphysics to science, pure and hard, and philosophy, all of which is past, and as we have never had a formal reply on the part of the creator, so everything was valid. But this is an extraordinary document comes back out of limbo Youtube. In a long story of 1: 30 dating back to 1980 where a ufo researcher Jun’ichi Yaoi is investigating the alleged paranormal phenomena that occur on the filming of the Shining, a telephone conversation with the director responds unexpectedly to all of our questions about the end of 2001. Place, therefore, to the truth :
“I’ve tried to avoid doing it ever since the movie came out. When you are talking about just ideas, they seem silly, but I’ll try. The idea was that he is supposed to have been removed by divine entities, creatures made of pure energy and intellect without any physical form. They put it in what one might call a zoo for study, and, from that moment on, all his life was spent in this room. And he has no notion of time, it occurs just as it is shown in the film.
They have chosen this piece, which is a replica very inaccurate of French architecture because it suggests that they may have had an idea of what could please him but they were not safe. Just as we are not sure ourselves, with the animals of the zoos for which we are trying to reproduce their natural environment. When they have finished with it, as is the case in a lot of myths, it is transformed into a kind of super-being and returned to Earth. It is modified, as a kind of Superman. We can only imagine what will happen when he will return. This is a recurring theme in many mythologies and it is this that we have suggested here.”
Of course, now that we have the explanation, all seems clear. But rest assured that we have just lived a very, very big moment. That a film director speaks to us from beyond the grave to explain a mystery 50-year-old, it doesn’t happen every day.
