Tesla boss and SpaceX founder Elon Musk knows something the rest of us don t: we don t actually exist.
In fact, Musk says the chances that we re not just pieces of code in a futuristic computer simulation are one in billions.
There s good news though: if you ever find yourself in a hot tub with Musk, he definitely won t bring up his simulation theory because his brother won t let him.
You have a digital version of yourself, a partial version of yourself online in the form of your emails, your social media, and all the things that you do.
You have more power than the president of the United States had 20 years ago, Musk said.
Musk is among of a small number of people who are directly helping shape the future of our civilization — whether or not that civilization exists only inside a computer — and he always has plenty of interesting and important things to say.
