I was looking for a theme for my graduation thesis and experiencing a very chaotic period at that time I wrote a lot on paper as I do not keep a journal. There were ordinary things, wondering what I do as a human and why I feel the need to climb up an imaginary ladder to be better. I decided to use this topic in my thesis and I remembered this “Space Odyssey” story. I kept the name because it was well known and very easy to interpret. I documented how this sophisticated topic was transposed in the film and book, then I fixed my own version.
“Geometry is the science which restores the situation that existed before the creation of the world and tries to fill the “gap”, relinquishing the help of matter.” (Lucian Blaga)
In the hundred thousand years that followed… the ape men did not invent anything. But they began to transform, they discovered abilities that no other animal possessed. They went to sleep in the evening on a branch as chimpanzees and woke up in the morning, on the grass, as men.
We are apes. And primates. And mammals. And vertebrates. And eukaryotes. And we love each other.
Man! Detach yourself from reality and leap towards your will. It will defeat fear and it will become reality.
The body will become earth brought by waters and the soul will turn into a star.
Take my dreams one by one. I repeat. Soak them in mud in the black pond.
“It would be frightening to think that in all the cosmos, which is so harmonious, so complete and equal to itself, that only human life is happening randomly, that only one’s destiny lacks meaning”. (Mircea Eliade)
