The revolutionary filmmaking that went into Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey encapsulates the totality of humanity’s experience, in one film. Jay Dyer and Jay Weidner analyze the occult imagery emblazoned throughout this classic film as we are presented with a tale of humanity’s transformation, from the early days of stone-age culture to the ultimate evolution into a being of light. This is an ancient tale stemming from the dialogs of Plato and carried through the Hermetic traditions. Kubrick may have drawn from these backgrounds, to embed esoteric symbolism in this film, giving us a hint into the alchemical nature of our evolutionary journey. This presentation was originally webcast September 4, 2017.
