"And now, out among the stars, internal linkevolution was driving toward new goals.  [They had] long since come to the limits of flesh and blood; as soon as their machines were better than their bodies, it was internal linktime to move.  First their brains, and then their thoughts alone, they transferred into internal linkshining new homes of metal and plastic.

     "In these they roamed the stars.  They no longer built spaceships. They were spaceships.

"But the age of the Machine-entities swiftly passed.  In their ceaseless experimenting, they had learned to store knowledge in the structure of space itself, and to preserve their thoughts for eternity in frozen lattices of internal linklight. They could become creatures of radiation, free at last from the tyranny of matter.

"Into pure energy, therefore, they presently transformed themselves, beyond the reach of time...They could rove at will among the stars, and sink like a subtle mist through the very interstices of space."

"I tried to create a visual experience, one that bypasses verbalized pigeonholing and directly penetrates the  subconscious with an emotional and philosophical content...I internal linkintended the film to be an internal linkintensely internal linksubjective experience that reaches the viewer at an inner level of consciousness, just as music does...You're free to speculate as you wish about the philosophical and allegorical meaning of the film." - Stanley Kubrick

"Roger Waters (bassist for internal linkPink Floyd), yet to balk at the internal linksci-fi association, went so far as to say his 'greatest regret' was that they didn't do the score for 2001: A Space Odyssey -- parts of which, particularly in the long, mind-blowing hallucinatory sequence near the end, nonetheless sound remarkably Floydian..."

Q: this is the question about the "great internal linkattractor" that you mentioned... did you ever see that movie 2001?

TM: ah, a couple of times [laughter from the audience]

Q: could the great attractor be symbolized in that movie by the internal linkmonolith?

TM: yeah, absolutely... that's the myth of what i'm saying... if instead of having those monkeys jumping around in front of a slab of linoleum, they had had them cavorting in the presence of the mushroom, then you would pretty much have my theory in a nutshell... [laughter/applause]

internal linkStanley Kubrick uses internal linkalchemical allegories through out the film _2001: A Space internal linkOdyssey_ DVDatomjacked inventory cache (1968). The obvious analogies are the celestial alignments that proceed each of the alchemical transmutations in the film. The second main allegory is that it is a black stone that initiates these transmutations. Again this mirrors the alchemical lore about the black stone causing the transmutation of the alchemist.

Finally we get to Kubrick's ultimate trick. He proves that he knows exactly what he is doing with this trick. His secret is in plain sight. First one must remember that every time the internal linkmonolith, the internal linkmagical stone, appears in the film there is a strange beautiful celestial alignment occurring. And one must remember that every celestial alignment in the film is followed by a monolith, that is, except for one. That would be the lunar eclipse that occurs at the very beginning of the film. So the question arises - if we are to stay within the rules that are prescribed in the rest of the film - where is the monolith that is supposed to follow that first  alignment? The monolith itself doesn't show up in the film for ten more minutes after that first celestial alignment, so what gives here? Is Kubrick just showing off his incredible special effects? Is it just there to internal linkimpress the viewer from the beginning? These things may very well also be internal linktrue, but the ultimate trick of Kubrick's is embedded in the idea that the monolith must appear after every one of these magical alignments. Once again, the secret of the film is completely revealed from the beginning. There is a monolith that appears right after the opening sequence with the magical, lunar eclipse. But where is it? It is right in front of the viewer's eyes! The film is the monolith. In a secret that seems to never have been seen by anyone - the monolith in the film has the same exact dimensions as the Cinerama movie screen on which 2001 was projected in 1968. This can only be seen if one sees the film in it's wide-screen format. Completely hidden, from critic and fan alike, is the fact that Kubrick consciously designed his film to be the monolith, the stone that transforms. Like the monolith, the film projects images into our heads that make us consider wider possibilities and ideas. Like the monolith, the film ultimately presents an initiation, not just of the actor on the screen, but also of the audience viewing the film. That is Kubrick's ultimate trick. He slyly shows here that he knows what he is doing at every step in the internal linkprocess. The monolith and the movie are the same thing.

In a documentary film about the internal linkToynbee tiles, Justin Duerr assumes that "Toynbee" refers to the 20th century British historian Arnold J. Toynbee, and that "Kubrick's 2001" is a reference to the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, a film co-written and directed by filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, about a manned mission to Jupiter. The external linktoynbee.net website speculates that Toynbee refers to Ray Bradbury's short story "The Toynbee Convector".

"Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two)" is a popular song, written in 1892 by British songwriter Harry Dacre, with the well-known chorus, "Daisy, Daisy / Give me your answer, do. / I'm half crazy / all for the love of you", ending with the words, "a bicycle built for two".

The song is said to have been inspired by Daisy Greville, Countess of Warwick, one of the many mistresses of King Edward VII.

It is the earliest song sung using computer speech synthesis, in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).
