Entrepreneur, billionaire and now SNL host Elon Musk is the primary to entertain the favored principle that he’s not from this planet. In 2018, when podcaster Joe Rogan requested the supply of all his time, vitality and concepts, Musk playfully responded “I’m an alien.” Extra not too long ago on Twitter he answered the query, “Are u an alien,” with a succinct, “Obv.”
How can one entrepreneur be universally attributed because the man who made electrical automobiles cool, the engineer we’re most certainly to belief in establishing an environment friendly community of tunnels beneath our cities and the founding father of the non-public area exploration firm whose ambition could venture the primary people to Mars? Musk may simply be the hero we have to resolve all of the world’s issues, one silent leaf blower at a time.
It’s virtually unfathomable for one man to own the capability to pioneer and apply as many ground-breaking initiatives as he does. A recurring widespread rationalization is that Musk’s outfield considering comes from… properly… ‘the outfield.’ Hypothesis abounds. A chosen time traveller from the yr 2050 on a mission to reward humanity with clever know-how in a manner that redirects its trajectory from sure peril? Or just a stranded Martian, homeward certain (which could clarify his zealous pursuit of constructing massive rocket ships)? These outlandish theories are seldom offered severely however when this fantastical façade, is stripped again, what stays is a Quixote with cash who likes to make stuff, so he does.
Musk’s charisma and transparency relating to the perceived risks of know-how could in reality be the rationale his Neuralink initiative has been met with minimal resistance. This means that in contrast to most tech giants, the general public share a basic belief that Musk’s intentions are for good. Is that this based on his continuous warning that AI know-how, together with his personal wants regulation or have his philanthropic successes rendered him an unchallengeable power? In an age the place technological advances are too speedy for a clear moral scaffold to be legislated, Musk’s standing, lack of established political affiliation or agenda and accessible manner renders his voice a lighthouse by uncharted territory.
To romanticise Musk’s genius as ‘extra-terrestrial’ impetuously trivialises his many successes (and failures). Put merely, the extra believable rationalization could also be that the South African is simply glorious at being human.
However severely, if you happen to do wish to know extra about this billionaire innovator, take heed to our podcasts on why he desires to avoid wasting us from the AI apocalypse, his causes for eager to take Tesla non-public and how Tesla is the canary within the coal mine for the EV trade.
