Enter conference hall at TED, the world’s largest conference for the future, and enter what feels like a foam floating in the air: a playground built inside a large black, red and blue and pink and brown arena, in the middle of which a series of people wonderful people tell wonderful stories about amazing things that happened in the future.
Even in the company of these heroes – and many are real heroes – Elon Musk commands a special cult among TED acolytes. It is not hard to see why. The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX combines the interest of TED with big dreams and impossible challenges. And his interview on the final session of the April 14 meeting certainly strengthened that commitment. After asking Musk about his thoughts on Twitter purchases and hopes for climate change, TED host Chris Anderson found a video of Musk on. Saturday Night Live mocking himself for his defeat, his conviction as “the first person to have Asperger’s” trigger the show, and asked him how it was growing up with the disease.
Carefully designed as the time looked, it was useful. The richest man in the world described his lonely childhood and how he struggled to understand what people wanted to do and what it meant. “Some are able to better understand what it means,” he said. “I just took things as real, that the words that were spoken were the ones that meant it.” Fleeing from the confusing repetition of human error, he became “completely obsessed with the truth,” and he began to study material science, computer science, and theology “in an attempt to understand the truth of the universe.” In another interview, Musk said, “The truth touches me deeply …
Floating inside the TED foam, I suddenly felt sad. I do not have Asperger’s, but I was also a lonely child who did not understand other people and instead sought the truth of science and computers. Undoubtedly many of the most successful geeks who go to TED can detect it.
But there is the truth of nature, then there is the truth of Musk. As he does so, he rewrote the history of the interrogation, citing a well-known 2018 tweet that said it was “protected money” to take Tesla secretly, and had to return after investigating the SEC investigation. yet true; “forced” to change and settled with the SEC to withdraw money from Tesla’s banks and restrict shortcuts. He spoke of the three years he was “lying on the floor” in the Tesla factory to show his solidarity with the workers, complaining about the insulting remarks he made and the allegations against the factory in California.
And his Twitter vision, as he put it bluntly on stage, is a platform that is not real, but freedom is paramount. Speech should be “as free as possible,” he said, and apart from verbal abuse, such as direct incitement to violence, he did not know when the boundaries should be reached. For Musk, this right is very important. “Having a public platform that is highly trusted and highly integrated is critical to the future of development,” he said, applauding.
