"Monolith" as written by Chad L. Gray, Matthew Mcdonough, Greg Tribbett and Ryan Martinie....
These symptoms suggested that our evolution, I suppose, from the
Animal kingdom
Into the human kingdom itself was catalyzed, or triggered by our
Encounter with
These hallucinogenics, and

Yes, we are an ape with a symbiotic relationship to a mushroom,
And that has
Given us self reflection, language, religion and all the
Spectrum of effects
That flow from these things.

And one can only wonder how these hallucinogens might effect our
Future
Evolution as well

They have brought us to this point, and as we make our
Relationship to them
Conscious, we may be able to take control of our future
Evolutionary path.

    General CommentThe person you hear speaking is not Mr. Rogers, it is Terance McKenna, a famous hallucinogens researcher. He is talking about his theory of how apes evolved to humans by consuming hollucinogenic mushrooms, giving them a conciousness. For more info on him go here - deoxy.org/… . That being the point of the track is the same as the monolith's point on 2001, it reflects change and consequences which happen from changes.

    General Comment- Titled Monolith, after the "brooding alien artifact at the heart of Stanley Kubrick's classic 2001: A Space Odyssey"

    General CommentThe monolith is from 2001, but the whole album is a consept album of diffrent theories, and human evalution, this track basicly sets the stage for the rest of the album.
