On a mountaintop just to the west of the island mentioned in the “Finding the Niche Again” post below, I came upon this homage to the human-monkey raising consciousness scene in the fantastic 2001: A Space Odyssey movie, which I consider Kubrick’s best and perhaps the best science fiction movie of all time. It’s a perfect movie in its own way. Knowing that the *second* leap up in consciousness for humankind, when the black, rectangular monolith is used in this way for the second time, takes place in the Jupiter system, imagine my surpise when I spied a short distance away from the monkeys… the planet Jupiter! I should add that I don’t think this relative juxtaposition was created on purpose, most likely.
Baker Blinker later took a snapshot atop the spinning sphere, looking back toward the monkeys and the monolith. Then she added some closeups of same.
I had to email my friend Mike Johnston, webmaster of the Synchronicity Arkive, about this find, attaching the first snapshot below. He’s a huge fan of the audiovisual synchronicity I call 2001-Echoes but what he likes to call Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite on his website.
