    The theme is change.

    In the beginning of the movie you see apes taking their first step to becoming humans by inventing tools. They use the first tools to kill. Tools eventually evolve into machines and man becomes increasingly dependent on machines as he ventures into space. Machines continue to advance; specifically into an intelligent computer that tries to kill humans.

    In order to survive, Bowman has to take the first step into become something greater that human; something that no longer depends on machines and computers to survive in space.

    He turns into the Star Child.
