This is precisely what MKUltra and psyops science would be exploiting for the Cold War.
What a coincidence, ay? No.
Anyone who has the slightest interest in 2001 knows that Kubrick took the acronym for International Business Machines and moved the letters one step to the left.
Yah, I know that old chestnut.
For what it's worth, Kubrick denied that explanation of "HAL."
And now I see why, the 'HAL' acronym for strategy-of-tension fear-based psyops by elite spook culture.
Remember what HAL sings while he's being unplugged by the astronaut he almost killed? "Daisy, daisy..."
The 'Daisy' commercial for the 1964 LBJ re-election campaign is iconic as nuclear fear-mongering, a little girl plucking off the petals of a daisy that morphs into a nuclear missile count-down that becomes the bright flash...meant to badjacket Barry Goldwater as too dangerous for the White House.
No, Kubrick was helping out the spooks and making an allegory about spook culture at the same time, something a proud artist would do even when tapped to make psyops.
