Interesting - here's his take on Aliens.
Do you believe him?
Excuse the transcript - I have done many transcripts for Elons interviews and he is a repeater, a stumbler, a jumper, and thinks forward of his words - so punctuating anything he says needs a degree. LOL
Host: thank you we are running out of time I have one last question I have to ask you.
Elon Musk: sure.
Host: three UFO’s been shot - one over Alaska, Lake Huron, and Canada. Alien? Not Alien?
Elon Musk: I don't think it's Aliens, no. Okay, I mean I do find the whole question of aliens a very interesting one. You know, what is typically called the Fermi Paradox, which is that if universe is really as old as it as science seems to think it is, the then where are the aliens? If we have really been around for 13.8 billion years, if so, there should there be aliens all over the place? The crazy thing is i've seen no evidence of alien technology or any alien life whatsoever. And I think I think I know, you know, spacex, we do a lot - I mean I think I’d know - I don't think anyone knows more about space you know than me, or at least the space technology.
So, but, I think it's actually a troubling thing if there are no aliens as well, which is that all that what that actually could mean then is that sort of civilization and Consciousness is like a tiny candle in a vast darkness, and a very vulnerable tiny candle that could easily get blown out. And I think we should therefore take great care with what may very well be this tiny candle in a vast darkness and make sure that it does not go out, and that we extend the light of Consciousness beyond Earth and do everything we can to ensure that the light of Consciousness does not go out.
Host: Elon we've run out of time thank you very much and hopefully to see you next year with us here in the Emirates with your family.
