A Monolith was a type of advanced alien technology that was used to help elevate animals to sentience. In Earth's solar system, one such monolith was placed on Earth before the rise of Humans, another on the surface of the moon, and another in orbit of Jupiter. The first helped Humans to arise on the planet, while the second inspired us to launch a mission to Jupiter to explore the third, which somehow teleported the person who touched it somewhere else. (A Space Odyssey franchise: "2001: A Space Odyssey")

Monoliths were commonly used by multiple species throughout the Milky Way to elevate lower species. (Spore franchise: "Spore")
