Els inicis de la humanitat

Com a homenatge a un dels mestres de la literatura de ciència-ficció, Arthur C. Clarke, una de les seqüències més extraordinàries i més profundes de la història del cinema.

He was also learning to harness the forces of nature; with the taming of fire, he had laid the foundations of technology and left his animal origins far behind. Stone gave way to bronze, and then to iron. Hunting was succeeded by agriculture. The tribe grew into the village, the village into the town. Speech became eternal, thanks to certain marks on stone and clay and papyrus. Presently he invented philosophy, and religion. And he peopled the sky, not altogether inaccurately, with gods.

Arthur C. Clarke: 2001: A Space Odyssey, I, 6.
