What Elon Musk Thinks About

It’s tough to be linear thinking creatures in exponential times. Part of why I keep writing this blog is to keep myself thinking into the future and try to imagine what happens if things go a little crazy. At the beginning of the 20th century people tended to be optimistic about the outlook for civilization. Really the worst they could think about would be some kind of plague wiping out masses of people.

Most people spend their lives in blissful ignorance of the bigger picture. A few people can see the big picture but do nothing and then there are a handful of people who have a rare combination of intuition, determination and ingenuity who try to do something about what they think about. Elon Musk seems to be one of the latter.

I don’t agree with him about some things but I greatly respect him as a thinker and doer. I came across this set of recent videos where he talks about what he thinks about.
