Yesterday I watched 2001 Space Odyssey. At first, I didn't understand not a single thing of the movie...

But then I started thinking:
What is the monolith?

At first I though that it would be something like a beacon, pointing where to look, as the monolith is 100% inert aside from a single radiation emmited to Jupiter.

But then, I realized that the monolith is actually a probe. Prolly sent to Earth by the "other race". That probe would keep an eye on us and help us with tecnological advances, as seen on the beginning of the movie. The gorillas learn how to use tools and weapons because the monolith showed them how to. The probe also allow us to gather information, one piece at a time, when we prove able to. The second monolith was at the dark side of the moon, hence I believe the knowledge contained into it was meant for us only after we could evolve tecnologically at the point we were able to go round the moon and stay there for some time to excavate the surface. The third monolith was meant to ppl that could reach Jupiter. At the end of the movie, the monolith transmits so much knowledge that the pilot who found it loses his perception of time and space, and he sees himself older at the same time the older him sees his younger version.

As if this wasn't enough, my brother mentioned the HAL9k stupid_computer.gif. We didn't actually debated about it, but he mentioned the following: The HAL9k stupid_computer.gif have emotions programmed into it. But does the stupid_computer.gif actually feels emotions? Does it fear, does it have pride of himself? On the other side, during the whole movie, the pilots act like they don't have any emotions. While trying to return to the ship, he doesn't fears for his life when he opens the door of the small tool-ship on hard vacuum to reach the emergency airlock as HAL has blocked the rest of the ship.
