From TheLostWorldsOf2001: ''Apart from their unusual height - more than seven feet - the creatures that looked down upon the world of Pliocene were strikingly human (...) With a little plastic surgery, Clindar could have passed for a man. He was hairless...''

* This could be rephrased as: '''RidleyScott has read TheLostWorldsOf2001'''. I'm pretty sure that the answer is a yes.

When the apes come in contact with the monoliths they are developed enough to gain a jump in evolution, however when humans find the monolith on the moon it emits a high pitched shriek to drive away the people because they are not "ready", this occurrence did have an effect on HAL however because of the level of sophistication of its design. When Dave finds himself in the hotel room he his being deliberately aged until he is ready to be evolved.(into a space fetus apparently.)

apparently).
** The monolith isn't making the screech because they're ''not'' ready, but because they ''are''. The shriek is the signal to the Jupiter monolith that's supposed to tempt humanity out to Europa, where the "evolution" process will happen, and it's only activated when sunlight touches the monolith - that is, being physically excavated from the moon is how the aliens are defining "ready". The pain was just a simple physical side-effect of standing next to a giant alien transmitter.

** . Bowman, by checking the replaced AE-35 unit and seeing that it was functional, already knew that HAL was in error. HAL's control over Bowman was lost at that point, regardless of what Mission Control would have said.

* It is alluded to though. The old, singing drunk Alex and his droogies assault at the beginning of the film complains about "men on the moon, and men spinning around the Earth, and ain't no attention paid to earthly law and order no more." I don't know how to explain the ''2001'' album in the record store, though.

[[WMG: Dave's final revelation is the discovery of the fourth wall]]
During the whole hotel room sequence, Dave seems to stare at both the camera and himself multiple time, and in one sequence it is even possible to see the reflection of the camera crew. At another point, he appears to touch the edge of the screen, and right before he ascends he appears to be reaching out for the Monolith, with forced perspective so that even though he is nowhere near it he still is touching it.

Why? Because the Monolith is the fourth wall, and Dave's realization is that he is in a film.

** This is called "analysis". It's what happens when you don't take things at face value.

The human and AI minds might appear far from each other, but consider. [=AIs=] are created from our knowledge. The aliens, however, would be completely different in nature; the aliens in this film truly are alien.

* "As soon as their machines were better than their bodies, it was time to move. First their brains, and then their thoughts alone, they transferred into shining new homes of metal and of gemstone. In these they roamed the galaxy. They no longer built spaceships - they were spaceships." -All four books in the Space Odyssey trilogy ''and'' "The Sentinel", the short story on which the series was based.
