My attempt on the anniversary of HAL's birth to prove that by taking any random events/names from the movie I can prove that Stanley Kubrick embedded his soul into the very fabric of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
HAL 9 = H= 8 A=1 L=12 9=9 so HAL 9 = 8 1 12 9
TMA1 = T=20 M=13 A=1 1=1 so TMA1 = 20 13 1 1
BBC12 = B=2 B=2 C=3 12= 1 2 so BBC12= 2 2 3 1 2
DAVE = D=4 A=1 V=22 E=5 so DAVE= 4 1 22 5
FRANK = F=6 R=18 A=1 N=14 K=11
A from HAL9 and 9 from HAL9 combined to create A9 or numeric value 19
T from TMA1 or numeric value 20
A from TMA1 or numeric value 1
N from FRANK or numeric value 14
L from HAL9 or numeric value 12
E from DAVE or numeric value 5
V from DAVE or numeric value 22 and C from BBC12 or numeric value 3 added together to create numeric value 25
Part one complete. Final numeric values for part one are as follows:
Writing is hard, of course. Putting a pen to the paper or a finger to the tablet, simply being able to interpret the fire and hate and the love and the passion into some kind of cognitive expression is predictably emotionally exhausting and draining. I'd love to be able to think and to see and to interpret the world like "the normal people" do. If I even try to think about writing down my confused thoughts on some topic or another all I ever see in my mind's eye is a black sky filled with stars. Words are abstract. Fire. A screaming rage inside my head, a volatile sea, nothing linear happens here in Spooksville. A jigsaw of perception, broken windows, each shard an idea half formed but forever out of reach. I have a firewall on my feelings and an antivirus infects my inner voice, I am polluted and diluted by the corrupting influence of this falsified life. I'm oh so deep, I'm oh so stilted, I'm undoubtedly stunted and emotionally blunted. Gravity and gratuity in perfect perpetuity. Other people pose in prose, I drown amongst my inability to express the simplest of thoughts because deciphering my version of existence is impossible. I'm just a sucker with low self esteem. My dark friend, my breathing shadow, the constant state of catastrophic cacophony and confusion that I force into my own mind permanently puts me at war with myself. Viscous and vicious is the fog I live with. I fear it. It will never let me go.
I am the poetic graffiti of the dead white flesh.
K from FRANK or numeric value 11
B from BBC12 or numeric value 2 and 1 from BBC12 or numeric value 1 combined to create 21 or numeric value 21
B from BBC12 or numeric value 2
R from FRANK or numeric value 18
H from HAL9 or numeric value 8 and 1 from TMA1 or numeric value 1 added together to create numeric value 9
F from FRANK or numeric value 6 and D from DAVE or numeric value 4, A from DAVE or numeric value 1 and A from FRANK or numeric a value 1 combined in the following equation (F-D+AxA or numeric values 6-4+1x1) creates the numeric value 3
2 from BBC12 or numeric value 2 subtracted from M from TMA1 or numeric value 13 creates 11 or numeric value 11
Part two complete. Final numeric values for part two are as follows:
The results from part one are:
The results from part two are:
Stanley Kubrick embedded his soul into the very fabric of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
