I never knew that this existed!

Stanley Kubrick on the meaning of the ending of 2001 in a rare 1980 interview.

Well, I think it's pretty straight forward. We never see the aliens, so we can reasonably assume that they are without form, and exist on a plane of existence beyond that of humans. And, they purposely bring Bowman to them. And, when he physically dies, that part of him that is beyond the physical is merged with one of the aliens to create a new being. And, that being is sent back to Earth. The bottom line is: Since the aliens exist on that different plane of existence, they cannot interact with humans in a direct way. So, the new being, a fusion of human and alien, will be able to do that.
