Fifty-two years after its premiere, ‘2001: A Space Odyssey (2001: A Space Odyssey)’ is more relevant than ever. The 1968 Stanley Kubrick-directed film was one of the cultural and cinematic hits of the 1960s and early 1970s. And fifty-two years later 2001 stands out as the biggest and most exciting science fiction film. of all time. As most science fiction fans know, 2001 also introduced the enigmatic black monolith to one of the most iconic icons in the history of art and film. Many have offered their theories to try to explain Kubrick’s view but the truth is that there are several meanings.
In a sublime moment in the film, the monolith in the “desert” inspired pre-human apes to discover technology and look to the stars. The monolith first appears in the desert setting with the apes as small tribes fight over scarce resources. One theory is that Kubrick clearly offers a cosmic, secular, e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ notion of a “God”.
This is not a God of our upbringing and narcissistic insecurities, but the idea that an a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ species has evolved and advanced enough with science and technology to cross light years would be like gods to us or any less advanced species.
Kubrick believed that it is possible that these e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ races were benevolent. So perhaps monolith-bearing a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s evolved beyond their early evolutionary stages to become peaceful space travelers in search of discovery of cosmic beauty and meaning. Perhaps you have already developed and adopted a cosmic narrative that brings your kind together as you explore the universe. And maybe this is the real explanation for a mysterious monolith found in the desert of Utah, USA.
A mysterious monolith apparently made of metal that was found in the remote desert of Utah, USA has caused quite a stir in the U̳F̳O̳ community, conspiracy and science fiction fans around the world, as it seems strange that this structure has been in existence for decades. After landing his helicopter to investigate, members of the Utah Department of Public Safety found
“A Metal Monolith on the Ground” but without “any sign or indication of who could have placed it there”.
“It is illegal to install unauthorized structures or art on public land administered by the federal government no matter what planet you are from,” the agency warned in a statement Monday.
But what was not expected is that news of the discovery quickly went viral, causing all kinds of reactions and comments with some netizens pointing out the object’s uncanny resemblance to the strange e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ monoliths that trigger advances in human progress in the classic sci-fi movie. Kubrick’s science ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’. The Utah Department of Public Safety declined to reveal the object’s location to prevent the curious from crowding the remote protected area, but a Reddit user has already managed to geographically locate the obelisk using the surrounding rock formations. and you will be amazed (38°20’35.1″N 109°39’58.2″W).
Sharing the Google Earth location where a small structure can be seen about 10 kilometers from the nearest road, the user said the structure was first photographed by Google in “2016”. Even some satellite images of the monolith date back to a year earlier, in “2015”. In addition, Lt. Nick Street spokesman for the Department of Public Safety said the structure could have been there for at least 40, 50 years or maybe longer.
“It’s the kind of material that doesn’t degrade with the elements,” Street said. “He might only be a few years old, who knows. There’s no real way based on the material it’s made of and how long it’s been there. »
For his part, Bret Hutchings, the pilot who flew over the obelisk, admitted that it is “the strangest thing he has encountered in all his years of flying”.
“We were joking that if one of us suddenly disappears, the rest of us will run away,” Hutchings told local news channel KSL-TV.
The mystery has spawned a number of theories as to how he got there from strange technology to the undiscovered work of a deceased artist. Some experts have pointed out the object’s similarity to the avant-garde work of John McCracken an American artist who lived near New Mexico for a time and died in 2011. McCracken was known for his freestanding sculptures in the form of graceful pyramids, cubes or slabs. The monolith is most similar to McCracken’s plank-shaped sculptures featured in his exhibition at the David Zwirner Art Gallery in New York.
However a spokeswoman for the art gallery said it was not one of McCracken’s works but possibly a fellow artist paying tribute. But hours later, Zwirner gave a different statement in which he suggested the monolith was McCracken’s, meaning it had remained undiscovered in the desert for nearly a decade.
“The gallery is divided on this,” Zwirner said. “I think it’s definitely from John. Who knew 2020 had another surprise for us. Just when we thought we’d seen it all. Let’s see it.”
But this change in David Zwirner’s statement did nothing more than provoke all sorts of conspiracy theories as some claim government agencies forced him to change it. And it is not surprising since this discovery during a turbulent year in which the world faces the COVID-19 pandemic could be evidence that it has a very different function than that proposed by Zwirner.
Some believe it may be a stargate. Many A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ cultures speak of portals to other Worlds and gateways to star systems where their “Creators” reside. The scientific community tells us that these stories are simply myths and legends. However declassified FBI files claim that our Earth has been visited by beings from other dimensions and planets. Not to mention that NASA has announced that the “Gates” do indeed appear to be hidden within the Earth’s magnetic field proving that the stargate or portal legends are real.
But there is also the possibility that it is a signaling device, a kind of beacon that would indicate the location of access to an e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ base hidden under the Utah desert. Countless people claim to have seen mysterious lights falling from the sky, entering the most remote areas of the place. The truth is that this 2020 is leaving absolutely no one indifferent and in addition to being the year of the pandemic, we could be at the door of the so-called “First Contact” and this monolith could be proof of that.
What do you think of the mysterious monolith found in the Utah desert? A̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ device? Or do you have another explanation?
