I've read the book several times and enjoy watching the film every few years. I have it and 2010 on DVD. I also notice 2001 is available in HD in iTunes. Think I will rent it this weekend.
I've always believed human evolution was "helped" along and Clarke's telling of how it might have happened truly bends the mind.
It's a story for all-times.
The recent "intervention" treatment we saw in the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica was quite breathtaking too - for television at least. The blend of science and spirituality was gripping stuff. But now I'm obsessing. Again. ;)
