Starchild. The conceptual idea that is the final image of 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is also my cyber surname.
But what is a Starchild? In 2001, my interpretation is that it is the final evolutionary stage of mankind. The protagonist takes an epic bound into space and time by going through a worm hole in the universe. At the beginning of the film, we see humanity in its earliest evolutionary stage: primates. At the end of the film we see our final destiny: Starchildren.
A Starchild is the brilliant mind that has seen the universe and marvels in its beauty. A Starchild is pure, and sees the earth for what it is. A Starchild understands and respects the fragility of human life; something that is profoundly important. With all this in mind, a Starchild is also just a child, still ready to study the universe and accept its full scope.
That’s where I connect with the idea. This blog is what I, a Starchild marvel at. I hope you enjoy it.
