While perusing the Jeff Rense-Benjamin Fulford interview transcript I came across the interesting tidbit:
RENSE: What happened to Stanley Kubrick? I don't mean the precise cause of death, but where was he going that got him into trouble with these people?
FULFORD: It was the movie Eyes Wide Shut, exposing the Masonic orgies. They showed that there were people being killed. This is probably based on real events.
I haven't done the proper research, but there is an old man who dies in Eyes Wide Shut. If I'm not mistaken, the man in the movie died exactly the way Stanley Kubrick died in real life, just as he finished the movie.
RENSE: It is also suggested that Kubrick was involved in creating the - at least some hoaxed Apollo moon footage, and knew all about that. His wife has intimated as much since his death.
The strange circumstance of Kubrick's March 7, 1999 death at his home -- and the family refuse to release the exact cause of death other than natural cause (may be sudden cardiac arrest) -- shortly after approving the lock on final cut and before the film was released in theatres in North America and some regions on July 16 provide a new perspective that might explain his reclusive & somewhat eccentric lifestyle beginning in the early 70's and why it led naturally to the subject of his final film.
. . . the appliance of occult symbols in purposefully obscured "satirical context" to accentuate Kubrick's cleverly veiled use of theme on the deadly contagion of mind control, lust, corruption, avarice, deceit, treachery and power vested in the secret society conspiring to swindle, debaunch, brutalize, violate and enslave humanity in Eyes Wide Shut.
The era of EYES WIDE SHUT is simply put . . . a time when adult human beings will be told and shown blatant lies and absurdities that in ordinary times a child could see through. The Iraq war, 911, Katrina, and many other instances that try the credulity of intelligent people. Eyes Wide Shut We see, but don’t see
A five minute google search would have uncovered everything Kubrick needed to put the expected imagery behind this kind of storyline. This is what I find so ironic about these types of threads.
February 6th 1998: The longest film shoot in modern movie history has officially ended. Columnist Army Archerd reports Stanley Kubrick called it a wrap on "Eyes Wide Shut'' on January 31, almost 15 months after production began. Kubrick now begins post-production, and Warner Bros. brass can only hope he cuts faster than he shoots, because the studio is anticipating a holiday release for the Tom Cruise-Nicole Kidman
Originally the search engine used the Stanford website with the domain google.stanford.edu. The domain google.com was registered on September 15, 1997. They formally incorporated their company, Google Inc., on September 4, 1998 at a friend's garage in Menlo Park, California..By the end of 1998, Google had an index of about 60 million pages. The home page was still marked "BETA", but an article in Salon.com already argued that Google's search results were better than those of competitors like Hotbot or Excite.com, and praised it for being more technologically innovative than the overloaded portal sites (like Yahoo!, Excite.com, Lycos, Netscape's Netcenter, AOL.com, Go.com and MSN.com)
By the end of 1994, while the total number of websites was still minute compared to present standards, quite a number of notable websites were already active, many of which are the precursors or inspiration for today's most popular services.

Okay, since you suggested it...I'm in the spirit for research. Always one to support looking into the facts!!!
So, as you mentioned... Stanley Kubrick adapted the Screenplay for Eyes Wide Shut in 1996. It is dated 8/4/96 which means it was likely written in the months prior. It is up for speculation on how long it took them to adapt the screenplay. Could have been months or years.

However, if you read closely....I said the screenplay was adapted. The original story was written in 1926 by Arthur Schnitzler. It was called Traumnovelle...or Dream Story in the English translation.
It is clear from the original story where the main storyline from Kubrick's screenplay came from. Again, nothing mysterious or ground-breaking... Especially considering Europe is well-known for the rich engaging in sexual orgies. Remember, too, that Europe looks at nudity and sex much more openly than Americans.
