Rodney Ascher & Andras Jones - Room 237: Stanley Kubrick's The Shining on Radio 3/14

Rodney Ascher & Andras Jones - Room 237: Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining
Rodney Ascher is the director/editor of the film ROOM 237, a documentary exploring the signs, symbols, meanings, and metaphors five very different people have discovered within Stanley Kubrick's The Shining
Also joining in is Andras Jones an actor, musician and the author of 
Accidental Initiations: In The Kabbalistic Tree of Olympia
He is best known for his role in Nightmare on Elm Street 4
We'll discuss possible sub-textual messages in The Shining
What was Stanley Kubrick really telling us? 
What was he really involved in? 
We talk about how Kubrick played on the ignorance of the viewer, leaving visual information, clues in the corner but people often missed them. 
Are the synchronicities, symbols and messages found in Kubrick's film intentional or was a higher force working through him? 
Then, we'll discuss the work of Will Morgan who compiled footage pointing out the synchronicities in the movies Andras Jones appeared in. 
Andras elaborates on how these syncs paralleled with his life off camera, just as others have pointed out this same phenomena with many other actors. 
We end on the big question of where human kind is heading just as Kubrick speculated on man's future in his film 
2001: A Space Odyssey.

Also what date was Jack Nicholson born on?
John Joseph "Jack" Nicholson (born April 22, 1937) 
is an American actor, film director, producer, and writer. 
As Americans  write the date, that is 4/22/37 (4/2[2/37]) 
42 and 237 in one birth-date.
I like how when you ask Rodney if he has any connections to the number 237 at the 13 min mark he says, 
"Only a handful of small ones"
I wrote a post about the actor Warwick Davis, who plays the robot in the movie 
Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy (42?) and his birthday happens to be 3 February 1970, that's 2/3/70. 
Page 237 from Douglas Adam's last (uufinished) book.
"Life was too short,...", page 237, The Salmon of Doubt.
Adams never got to finish writing this last book because he died of a heart-attack at the age of 49 in the year 2001

Speaking of The Shining - so far, I love doctor sleep, the sequel.
