On the evening of February 2nd, Lex Fridman’s podcast released the third interview with Elon Musk, the world’s richest man. In the 2.5-hour interview, Musk answered questions about space, cryptocurrency, Tesla, brain-computer interfaces, consciousness, AI, history, life, and philosophy. In the interview, Musk mentioned that to achieve a manned landing on Mars, it will take 5 years in the best case and 10 years in the worst case. However, for others to achieve this, Musk recommends that young people read more and use physical ideas to expand their lives.
Tesla should achieve LEVEL4 fully autonomous driving next year. Musk believes that this is a very difficult problem. The reason why he cares about space civilization is that he hopes to see prosperity. He further claims that he does big things for the love of human nature.
At the same time, Musk gave young people a lot of advice. He said that they should try to do things that are useful and beneficial to human beings and the world. “Of course, doing useful things is hard, very hard. He enjoys encouraging others to use the physical tools of thought to extend their lives. This is the best tool. Hope people read more books, try to digest as much knowledge as possible, and build a general view of knowledge”.
When it comes to the meaning of life, Musk believes that it is the question of the universe to find the answer. He is very curious about the nature of the universe.
Musk Says Tweets About Taking Tesla Private Three Years Ago Are Completely True
Tesla CEO, Elon Musk said that his 2018 tweet about plans to take Tesla, private, was “entirely true”. Musk’s attorney, Alex Spiro, said in a court filing on Tuesday that Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund did agree to back his attempt to take the company private. “It is completely true that Elon Musk informed the public on Twitter on August 7, 2018, that he is considering taking Tesla private,” the lawyer said in the filing. The dollar price to take Tesla private has secured funding and investor support.”
Spiro also said: “Not only did Musk tweet with the conviction that the funds were secured, but actually (according to Musk’s discussions with the PIF) the funds were secured.” PIF is owned by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund.
The tweet reportedly roiled Tesla’s stock price and led to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) indicting Musk for fraud. Musk and Tesla eventually settled with the agency, agreeing to pay a $40 million fine, and Musk resigned as chairman.
In a class-action lawsuit pending in federal court in San Francisco, some shareholders claim that Musk’s tweet triggered wild swings in the company’s stock price and caused billions of dollars in losses. Investors hope that a judge will rule the tweets are misrepresentations before a May 31 trial. The court will hold a hearing in March.
