Is the body, in all its failures and inadequacies, the prison, or is the mind our more constant tormentor? Is it more shameful to have to endure the sheer humiliation of our bodies, or is it our brains that have exhausted themselves to get us? This is a great human question, and it feels as if, once it is answered and resolved, we can finally hold on to happiness.
I think for Elon, it has to be the body. He has said that he sees a future in “downloading” one’s mind, and for anyone who feels their mind is at issue, “downloading” sounds like torture. self.
Musk recently told Insider, “Yes, we can download things that we believe make us unique. Now, of course, if you’re not in that body anymore, that would certainly make a difference, but in terms of preserving our memories, our personalities, I think we can do something. there. “
No body, but still preserving the mind, hmm? Interesting concept, especially since Musk’s body became the object of scrutiny this week. He went to Mykonos with some friends (including Ari Emanuel and his new wife, Sarah Staudinger), and comfortable enough to take off his shirt. It’s not every day that you see the richest man in the world in shorts, so yes, everyone has something to say. And yes, the guy whose skin tone could be described as having the same pale skin color as a medical cadaver, if you were the one commenting on his body and also a Dickens character.
Here’s My Own Body, in response to a fan and investor who captioned a photo of Musk raising a glass, “Fuck I got my dollars after this man. Lots of other smart investors. “:
Great explanation. Musk worked too hard to see the sun! He works so much that he appears actively lymphatic and wan. He might as well laugh about these body-sharing on the internet. So it doesn’t seem like he’s ashamed of his body nor mind that he’s seemingly open to download, just embarrassed by being caught on vacation. This is an advocate of working “at least” 80 hours a week to “change the world,” so his factory-soaked skin is a badge of honor. This is actually a Dickens novel. Probably Hard time.
