Man is the measure of all things: of things which are, that they are, and of things which are not, that they are not. Anthropomorphe proposes a reflection on individual and collective human body identity. Where lies the soul?
Marvin Minsky, director of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laborator, was an adviser on the 1968 Stanley Kubrick movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. We wonder about HAL and his paranoid rebellion if the optimist Minsky and the pessimist Kubrick are misunderstood one another.
I believe not, within the reflection on the depersonalized power, typical of Kubrick's work, the ambiguity of our being as subjects sets a key and a meeting point.
