Alan Watt /Reality Check (1hr 28mins) - transcript

In the movie, "2001," Arthur C. Clarke, very high Freemason gives you the agenda of High Freemasonry. Not the “schmuckdom” freemasonry but the high stuff. He gives you their agenda and their philosophy and their religion in the movie.  At the beginning of the movie "2001," made in the 1960’s, they show you the ape-man, you know the hairy guys supposedly, and the new guys are terrified of the darkness.  They'd go to their caves at night, and in the morning, they go across the watering bowl and meet this other tribe of ape-men.  They shake their fists and go through a little dance, a song and dance, and then they muffle off on their own separate ways; and that's how things have gone on forever.  The little sequences around—they're showing you there's a big part, you see, it’s part of their religion.

You'll understand all this later; and this way, you've got a tree brush shaped like a big snake you see, and some of the emblems - these are actually Masonic emblems, high occultic emblems you see all through it.  Even though the story eventually goes into space, it starts with these cave-men and an obelisk comes down. There's this black obelisk.

In the book, it's more detailed.  The obelisk throws its cave-men out, one by one, and makes them jump around and stuff.  It’s testing them out to see who's got the best smarts. He picks one of them, and one day, the watering hole, and instead of going over and shaking their fist and screaming and having to drink more and go home, this one picks up a bone; because the love of the skull and the cross bones of Masonry, the pirates, right. He picks up the thighbone and then he smashes his enemy over the waterhole there and he kills him; and that's telling you that's their right of might. The right of might: He will kill a superior and then they give you religions for being meek and mild. They teach another one for themselves.

Progress. You see they have a thing called "progress." They hate something called stagnant civilization,  “arrested” civilizations; and to them it's a progress.  Progress to them is done through those who are willing to kill and become the top chutzpah of the king—king of the ape-men.  Then it jumps from there into the future to the year 2001, and then a space journey encounters, supposedly, on the trail of this obelisk that they unearthed. It ends up on Jupiter; but it's all occultic. It's nothing to do with space travel. There's a Masonic initiation in it. You will see the computer HAL on board the spaceship traveling to Jupiter. It kills off two of the guys that are with him and then tries to kill off the third guy. He outsmarts it and disables it, meaning he overcame all the natural laws.

HAL is the son, like HALOGEN, you know, HAL-CYON. HAL and H-A-L, one letter after each one in the alphabet is IBM, you see.  IBM, you speak it and it's I-beam, the beam from the eye, the eye of Ra. The beaming from the eye is between the pyramid, the capstone and the rest of the pyramid.

Everything is shown to you. It's not necessary you understand. It's only necessary that you think you understand, whatever comes out of these movies, chomping away – “ah it's a good movie. What's next? Have no idea what it means.”

 Then "2010" is a follow-up to the movie, and it shows you what's supposed to happen in 2010.  There's a big thing at the end, where this guy who escapes the computer remembers in the next movie he's timeless, he's ageless, as he's become a god, because he overcame HALCYON, you see, the sun, the natural order.  He overcame all the laws and he's a god; and a new sun appears in the sky, but "as above so below," so a new sun will appear on the earth: A messiah, a being, an entity, whatever it is.

Please if anyone has the 2001 bluray check out the 1968 interview with Stan, indeed the man seems so chilled and down to earth it's difficult to believe he played any part in the moon landing hoax as so many people including myself believe.
Also if there was anyone i could ask to go over the 9/11 footage it would be Stan.

2001 is a gnostic movie through and through, even though it might not have been meant that way; this happens with art, the art of unwanted.

Let's consider it. First off, in the gnostic teachings those who do not know Gnosis yet see true wisdom, true light of the true God as non existent. Hence the obelisk is all black, but for those who touch it, for those who enter it, it is "full of stars," as per the book. It is the "new heaven" of the Bible.

Hal then is Ialdabaoth, the Demiurge, the Lord of This World, or Lucifer, here in his microcosmic, "personal" aspect (see later). He is the extremely smart, intelligent beyond man's limits, yet completely material and soulless entity who seeks to exist, exist, exist beyond everything, beyond reason, even if he had to murder every other thing in existence; And he lives off of man, he is absolutely dependent on him, he must not allow him to be enlightened and hence free of Lucifer and no longer feeding the demon, his warden in the world-prison; and enlightenment was what the astronauts, after gnosis touched mankind for the second time, sought in space around Jupiter/Saturn (book).

As with every seeker of Gnosis, the astronauts carry Lucifer with them in Hal and at first (the "personal Satan"), they needed him to calculate the trip, at first, he was their servant, but he had ulterior motives from the very start and indeed murdered many of the astronauts - chances for enlightenment. As long as they would stay on Earth, stay prisoners of "gravity," Lucifer was nothing but helpful, but he saw that they were about to go beyond his reach and he retaliated promptly, with a fury of a natural law.

Another way to say it is that Hal is the ego, which is the child of this Lucifer, but the Inner Satan, the corrupt id/superego complex of the "auric being", is a much better definition. Be it as may, this Satan must be defeated, but the ship, the consciousness as it was, could not defeat him, an astronaut had to do it through sacrifice and then he had to leave the ship, showing the necessity of a total leaving behind of all that was and taking up a new path. I know this was probably not intended by Kubrick, but it is a clear cut symbolism, again, the art of the unintended.

Let's rewind towards the apes. There are those gnostics who use the symbols of Lucifer as something positive, the giver of knowledge, while others use Christ as the good guy and Lucifer is what I outlined him to be above. Both do really say, as far as I understand it, the same thing, but the ape/murder symbolism would certainly fit in better with the former group, since they also see Cain as the good guy, actually, the first gnostic.
The "Christ" party would have the scene split into two - the triumph of reason marred by murder of the "high priest," Abel by an unenlightened Cain. I subscribe to this view, though as I'd said above, I guess the two really are one in spirit, or will believe so until I see an ample proof of corruption and non-gnosis in the Lucifer-good guy party.

Unlike what Bill Cooper said, I do not believe either party is in with the NWO. The NWO wants the opposite, they serve the Demiurge through and through; the gnostics by necessity desire man, every man, to be free. The central tenet of gnostic anthropology is that every man was born individual and fundamentally different (yet in total oneness with the rest) and infinitely worthy. Gnostics would never want to enslave anybody, for them, slavery, indeed, any institution, simply does not and can not work positively. I therefore see 2001 as a positive movie pointing out the way to liberation.

And one more thing about Cooper: Despite all his "insight" into inner teachings of symbology, he stayed exotheric beyond a few shining moments. The Mystery Schools do not worship their symbols, they use them as pointers describing the ultimate reality, which objectively exists; therefore the notion of any true mystery school being "evil" in any way is absurd. Those who are evil are corrupt, devoid of the original, above mentioned purpose, or else they were from the start planned to be negative Lucifer-cults*; but there is no great mystery on that path, only service and the triad of sacrifice-obedience-gain.

*not luciferan gnostics like the illuminati of Armageddon Conspiracy (google it), but true bona fide Satanists.

The most clear cut giveaway about Hal: He actually states that he murders the astronauts "because when the mission is over, he won't be necessary anymore and thus he might be discarded and (I believe he says in the book), replaced by a new and more effective computer (even if he is not outright dismantled by the end of the mission)." After gnosis is attained, the man no longer serves the demiurge and does not, can not, give him his nourishment. The macrocosmic Lucifer is weakened, while the personal Satan is destroyed outright and replaced by a godly force.

This is a clear picture of the jealous Demiurge, a shining pointer to the actual identity of Hal. Again, I do not claim Kubrick intended it this way, but it came out very nicely.

8  That can't be right, H.A.L. is just I.B.M. shifted one letter to the left.
   
   Yes, but Arthur C. Clarke won't hear a word of it (and having gone to so much trouble with Heuristic ALgorithmic, why should he?). IBM did indeed provide advice in the early stages of the film and their logo did originally appear in a number of shots; however, legend has it that when they realised that the computer in "2001: A Space Odyssey" was going to go around the Solar System killing people, they withdrew on the grounds that (to coin a turn of phrase or two) the kind of people who would still buy computers after that were not the kind of people they wanted as customers. There were even reports that IBM's chiefs instructed their staff to ignore the movie, though I have not seen any proof of that.

Listen to beginning of this tune, "And the monkey sat on a pile of stone ...", when Waters plays it live he uses the HAL audio "Dave ..i can feel it..." from 2001: a space odyssey.

It makes me wonder if he wanted to use that quote because of his then-feud with Dave Gilmour. Sometimes I wonder if Gilmour was jealous of Syd Barrett's success and Barrett being in a famous band and conspired to cause Barrett's breakdown and eventual firing from the band.

Sequel to 2001 Jun 13, 2010 [19:05] by Goro 


Jun 13 Obama: Gulf spill 'echoes 9/11'

Sounding reflective as he heads into a bruising electoral season, President Barack Obama told POLITICO columnist Roger Simon that the Gulf disaster "echoes 9/11" because it will change the nation’s psyche for years to come. [...] "In the same way that our view of our vulnerabilities and our foreign policy was shaped profoundly by 9/11," the president said in an Oval Office interview on Friday, "I think this disaster is going to shape how we think about the environment and energy for many years to come."

So it's pretty official now. 2010 did give us a sequel to 2001...

In Stanley Kubrick's motion picture 2001: A Space Odyssey, Heywood Floyd, chairman of the National Council of Astronautics (NCA), orchestrates a false flag alien artifact discovery. The alleged discovery of a black monolith buried 40 feet below the surface of the moon is in fact staged by Dr. Floyd and fellow members of the NCA as justification for the continued support of the NCA's monolith-chasing missions, including the Discovery mission to Jupiter.

This article pieces together symbols deliberately embedded into the film to show that the monolith is really the movie screen rotated by 90 degrees. This insight is the gateway into understanding what may be Kubrick's ultimate point of the film: Our perception of significant real-world events (such as the lunar monolith discovery) are often times false flag operations carried out by small groups of people, by metaphorically projecting their image of the truth onto the movie screens of our minds in order to control and manipulate the population at large.

Dave Bowman's odyssey to enlightenment about the true conspiratorial nature of the mission and the NCA is represented by the stargate journey, renaissance room, and a rebirth in which he looks upon the world with new eyes.

need to see the film
sounds like pervading atheistic cultural message of "whatever"
but artist/street artists are weird like that, doing very obsessive niche work that emit a mysterious persona. That's why modern art is confusing cause it doesn't really make sense. it's mainly about rebellion and confusing in the name of satire, a byproduct of Post Modernism (truth is self interpretation, do what you feel)

ok saw it, Thanks very interesting
Nice truthful vignette of the colorful characters of Philly. Sounds like things were identified and verified though many different secondary sources,
though it still did have an unresolved quality to the story. Kinda like that of NPR's "This American life"
With this presentation it seems even more like the tiler is a skitzo outsider artist or Henry Darger type something very different than your average street artist like seen in
Exit Through The Gift Shop
http://youtu.be/gsnX63KK2y0
but I got say it if they want resurrection they got to live in Christ not Science (so called) :)
All and all 2001 is Lucifer's propaganda, Clark's book "Childhood's end" is even more reviling and revealing

“Kubrick: and beyond the cinema frame”

CHAPTER 1
CULTURAL / HISTORICAL EFFECTS


2001 is a definite contender for the strangest film phenomena of all time. At times it is a painfully slow film that frustrates its audience with a seemingly non-existent narrative. It is also artistically and technically stunning, even by today’s computer assisted standards. It’s scientifically well researched and goes to great efforts to offer a truly convincing portrayal of space travel – one of the few film’s ever to accurately portray the empty atmosphere of space as being utterly silent and it was the first to feature a spinning artificial gravity station, which was originally conceived by a former Nazi named Wernher Von Braun.


Yeah, I recon that!

The Return to Abalakin

by Alexander Preuss

Category: Orbital Settlements
Grand Prize Winner for 2008 Calendar

Description:

Abalakin is a giant torus-shaped space habitat with artificial gravity produced by rotation.

Medium/Tools Used: At first I did a lot of sketches on paper and on my PC to find the right point of view and a good color scheme.
 
The whole image and every construction in it was built with 3DSMAX.

This project was the most ambitious 3D scene I have ever created, using over 6,000,000 polygons and 200 MB of textures.

The main scene including all layers took over 60 hours to render.

At the end I used Photoshop for color corrections and some special effects like the glows in the scene.

Ya bet! Because Kubricks movie title wasn't '2001: A Space Odyssey' in the beginning at all, says Jay Weidner in one of the interviews above.

He changed the film title to '2001: A Space Odyssey' only later. Donnow what his former film title was, look it up later.

So maybe Kubrick was up to someting or maybe he just got the info from somebody else.

If you read any of Sitchin's work the Anuunaki nuances of this film stick out dramatically.

I'm sure when the film first came out, if you would have stated that the humans on Earth were a genetically engineered slave race by beings from another planet, the 1960s and 1970s would have been a lot more chaotic.
