AWRIGHT IT WORKS: Cool. Now I can start blogging. I was reading Jay Zibler's admission that he finally "gets" the ending of 2001 over at Mind Over What Matters. Back in school the theory offered to me was that Kubrick had this real belief in the circularity of history and that the evolution from gorilla to spaceman to giant baby was just him saying that the wheel had come full circle and that the net progress of humankind ended up as zero. That's the first time giant baby made any kind of sense to me, anyway.
