The Star Gate Sequence Of '2001: A Space Odyssey'.

I quickly wanted to share something with you this evening that perhaps many of you below the age of 25 have never seen before. In 1968, the sci-fi film masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey was released. Besides featuring an awesome artificially intelligent computer named HAL with murderous intentions, the movie included a mind-altering sequence that hasn't been replicated since. The astronaut Bowman, pitched into an unidentified globule of colored light, takes a journey across all boundaries of space and time. Sit back, down a beer and just relax as you watch the Star Gate sequence from 2001: A Space Odyssey. And hey, if you have seen this before, then all the better. It's just that weird!

And just what does Bowman find on the other side of his strange journey? Well, that answer is pretty damned freaky, too.

And finally, the film ends with rebirth.

Just what does it all mean? Well, that's up to your own interpretation. In my opinion, Bowman has transcended the laws of known physics and merged with the force behind the Monoliths. Before his "death", he begins to exist simultaneously at multiples points throughout his life. Ultimately, all of his selves collapse into a single being within the alien slab to become something entirely new.

Yeah... to say 2001: A Space Odyssey is mind-blowing is a massive understatement. I highly recommend that you check it out.
