Good morning, good afternoon or good evening, depending on when you’re tuning in. My name is Jonathan Torres Herrera, and you are watching the JTH show today. I want to talk about Elon Musk scarier than AI burst. Roll that intro.
Alright. So before I get started, let me quickly thank everyone that has ascribed, like the videos, share the videos, comment on the videos, watch the videos. I feel that sometimes, you know, I should do that more often. I know you guys have a lot more to choose from, and the fact that you guys come here and watch the show and has helped me grow the show into what it is to this point, you know, is, is, is very, you know, I’m very lucky for you to, you know, have me as one of your choices.
So I feel, I feel very fortunate and I thank you for that. And if you haven’t liked or subscribe, you know, it’s okay. I forgive you. It is not too late. We can turn this around. Go ahead and do it now. Well, I’ll wait. Thank you very much. Okay. Officer given seat. No problem. All right, cool guys. Just kidding. All right. Let’s move on. So, you know, I have a great video that I feel kind of excited about. I don’t mean to click, but you guys into feeling like Elon Musk is some evil dude. I don’t believe he is. Okay. Let me first come on and say that straight out.
0 (1m 29s):
I don’t want all the Elon Musk fans out there to be like I have for you, dude. He’s the best guy. Hey, he’s he’s cool. He’s cool. Okay. But some of the stuff he said on the podcast, he was on, went on the Joe Rogan experience, depending on who you are, you might find it scary.
2 (1m 49s):
You know, like I, I actually sort of sometimes with the anti-globalization people, cause it’s like, man, we don’t ever want to ever where it will be the same.
0 (1m 58s):
Definitely. You might find it, you know, concerning, I guess. And I’ll get into it here real quick before, let me go ahead and give you guys a quick rundown right? Of, of, of Elon Musk. For those of you guys that don’t know who Elon Musk is, right? A few of you. So he is the, the founder and operator for a lot of these companies, including Tesla, the Warren company, and space X, according to Wikipedia, I’ll give you exactly what Wikipedia says. You know, Elon Musk, Elon Musk was born June 28, 1971 is an engineer, industrial designer, technology, entrepreneur, and philanthropist.
0 (2m 34s):
This guy is I fucking like Ironman. You know, he is a citizen of South Africa and the United States in which he has, you know, the country has lived in the majority of his life and even a citizen of Canada. He is a founder CEO and chief engineer designer of SpaceX, cofounder, and CEO and product architect of Tesla, inc. Founder of the boring company, Cole, founder of Neurolink and cofounder and initial chairman of open X. He has an estimated net worth of $39.4 billion.
0 (3m 8s):
Yes. You heard that correctly as of 2020 a side note, by the way, congratulations Sammy. Cause he recently had a baby on May 4th who he named ready X a E a 12th, him and his partner named the baby. And he explained while on the show,
3 (3m 30s):
I mean, it’s just X the letter X and then the AA is like pronounced Ash. Yeah. And then eight, 12, eight, 12 is my contribution. Oh, Y 12 Archangel 12, the precursor to the SRO, 71 coolest plane ever.
0 (3m 54s):
I found it little weird, you know, that he would name his baby X Ash or a E a N N a 12th. That is the baby’s name. So, you know, future ex Ash a 12th, good luck in school and in life. So yeah, I mean, you’ll be fine. I mean, your dad’s Elon Musk for F sake, right. So you’ll be fine. So the, the, what I want to talk about and what I found really, really interesting is actually the last two companies that I mentioned Neurolink and open AI.
0 (4m 24s):
Now those of you guys familiar with those companies or those terms is exactly what it sounds like. The companies that he’s developing, including these two are to further the advancement of technology based on artificial intelligence or AI and the other one, the Neurolink is the testing of technology and humans to treat neurological conditions like movement disorders, spinal cord injuries, and even blindness man that, you know, it’s just that part right there before we get into anything else is, can be rather that is, but can be a little earth shattering and a little, you know, surprising some maybe even a little bit like, is this a prank, a joke when you just hear it like that?
0 (5m 13s):
Right. Kind of like out of a movie or out of like a black mirror, one of those episodes, you know, where we have stuff implanted in us, how you probably have even, I think maybe seeing one of my videos where I talked about it, right. Companies implanting things on us and you know, this, all these other conspiracies and this guy we know worth billions is I guess I’m going to make companies to do exactly that. So initially to many people, you know, they might feel like, okay, so you are the future ruler of humanity and you’re going to try to control me.
0 (5m 44s):
And you know, actually it turns out the U S government is actually the good guy, but you’re the evil, or you’re like, you know, dr. L or something. However, for maybe the other few maybe, or maybe more than a few of you that are more, I’m kinda like my side, I’d say, I would suppose you will understand that there is actually some good intent behind it. Of course, I agree that there are, there is the possibility, the very large and real possibility that like anything else in life when new tech comes out, there is always going to be a group of people that are going to try to F it up and use it to, you know, make themselves rich to, to troll, to just cause panic.
0 (6m 28s):
I don’t know. Right. There’s always going to be that group of people. So this definitely is a part of them, but some of the highlights of the show to get into more of what he said on here is he knows that if you can’t beat them, join them, you know, as in reference to the AI, right? He’s the, he feels is inevitable at this point that is coming. Whether it’s him or some other company it is coming. And if we, as a society, don’t embrace it. And at one point or another become what he called, what he calls it symbiotic, then we can be the victims or fall victim to the AI.
0 (7m 6s):
You know, he really does believe that it does have the potential. Now I guess I’d note the scary part is like, damn, do what do you know about AI that we don’t? I mean, you know, for, for the people like me, that we know where some familiar with with the term, you know, artificial intelligence okay. Is like, Oh, smart, very, very smart robot, right. That is learning a guest from, from itself and is learning from humans. And it’s like, hallux, I think Ultron, you know, but Jesus, you know that, what do you know that we don’t know that you’re thinking that we’re going to fall victims to it.
0 (7m 38s):
And you know, I guess it’s easy to understand that if the AI were to develop for some reason how the ability to also develop feelings or a type of consciousness that, you know, can, you know, hoard raise, you know, resent men, for whatever reason that you do something to it or have a bias, then we definitely could have found a foul fall victim to something the machine that is probably going to be at least 10 times smarter than us, if not more right.
0 (8m 9s):
Definitely more agile when it comes to using technology more than we do, because we still need our opposing thumps, which I’m going to get into what he saw. So sad about that. But anyways, he said, if you want to be along for the ride, as far as like in the future, he believes there would need to be again, symbiosis, meaning the interaction between two different organisms. Not that I guess a machine would be an organism, right. But anyways, right. And they work together to become something better, I suppose, is what being a SIM, you know, the symbiosis is what he means.
0 (8m 47s):
He believes that we already are, you know, in some type of symbiotic pear pairing, I guess he said, I remember the exact words, but he said, you know, with AI to a certain extent, especially with all the technology that we use nowadays. And he said, if you’re the kind of person that has it all around your house, on you, like your watch, your smart watches, smart glasses, your phones, hell there’s even nowadays smart tennis shoes and, and does other crazy stuff.
0 (9m 18s):
Then we are essentially are, are already, you know, getting to where he is saying that we’re going to get to even further. Right. We’re already on our path there. He added, which is actually very true. He says something that I’m like, yeah, I guess sometimes I do my Mayfield like that. He said, when somebody leaves her phone behind or their laptop or something that they use, you know, throughout the whole day, they leave behind, they lose it. It runs out of power. They, you know, you feel like you’re losing a limb. Like you feel like, you know, you consistently go back to it knowing that it’s not there.
0 (9m 51s):
Like if an example, you go on a trip and you forgot your phone, you might be on your trip. You know, you left it on w you know, the moment you left the house or something, but as you’re going throughout your day, you’re progressing through it your day. You feel like, Oh, I forgot her left it. And it’s true much like someone, right. Not saying, but similar to someone that maybe has a cast on, they can user army, or they finally, they, they find themselves kind of like pulling and trying to use her arm, you know, let alone someone that doesn’t have one. Right. So I’m kind of limb that this just feels like they’re, they’re, they’re, I think they’re calm.
0 (10m 22s):
Like, you know, like, or like Phantom pains or Phantom something, right. When you may be someone that had a leg and you know, it has been amputated or something. So he said, it’s, it’s very similar nowadays. And it’s gonna get worse when it comes to technology and how we feel attached to the set technology. I can agree. I can, to a certain extent, agree. I definitely feel, you know, a little out of place whenever I have my phone. I know it’s bad. I know, I know. Maybe I shouldn’t be as attached to my tech as I am, but you know, I’ve, I have fallen victim to the technology.
0 (10m 53s):
I’m a victim now. So what did he say? We know pretty, that’s going protest this guy in council, Elon Musk. Well, first of all, no, if you, and you did, and by the way you learned Maslow’s and give a lot of F’s when it comes to the stuff he says. In fact, today I saw a quick glimpse on a tweet that he is planning on moving a Tesla to one of his companies completely out of California. Right. I don’t know exactly the reason why, but he’s, that’s the kind of guy he is. He on the show also said that he is getting rid of all his PR his personal belongings.
0 (11m 26s):
He talked briefly about a house that he thought he was gonna make or thought about making building, you know? And he instead said, no, because there’s a liability. It’s like, it’s an to keep me back. And you know, what I want to do is take people to Mars and having all these belongings as is preventing me from getting there again, there’s a guy worth billions doesn’t, you know, I guess want for a lot physically, you know, like stuff to, you know, other tech and stuff like that.
0 (11m 56s):
And he’s, I get everything out and Joe Rogan asked them, so what are you under? You can rent a house. He’s like, yeah, I’m going to rent a house, you know, simple. And yeah. You know, I’m going to focus rather on taking people to Mars because there’s other company space X, that’s what they’re doing. Right. They’re finding out how to land, which I believe they are aided by the way, spaceships, once a rocket ships, once they launch, they land, unlike before where they used to just crash into the ocean, he wants to find a way for them to land.
0 (12m 26s):
Right? Yes. Just like you. So you, you think about it in a movie and then be able to launch up again, you know, other than a plane that yes, I can do that. It’s a very different, I guess, dynamic, when you talking about a big ass fricking rocket ship or a spaceship or whatever, that’s meant to go into space and then come right back down because it would have to have to do that. Right. Somehow in March, when, when he finally gets people there and he’s like, you know, having all these personal belongings is a no brainer for me. So that’s, that’s a little crazy, right? That a guy would like that where it’s so much money and every day he’s worth more, he is, you know, I’m sure going to be a one point possibly one day competing with me.
0 (13m 0s):
We were like, what Jeff basles maybe, and jet basals, as I know, seen amount of money, like this is insane how much that guy has as well. And I think sometimes like, man, who those guys got together, man, you know, along with some other billionaires, right. Who knows what they could, they could accomplish one thing that I, that I was impressed, I guess, and to a certain extent, I was, he feels that this technology there’s Neurolink, by the way, which re briefly described that you would have a part of your skull removed temporarily, I guess in, in surgically, you know, put in this device, you said it was actually not that very big, where these wires somehow into your brain hours of wiring and it go into your brain.
0 (13m 45s):
I have no idea. Maybe he doesn’t even really know, right. He’s not a surgeon, but the point is he would go into that and then I guess then send some type of, of shockwaves out or something. Right. That would restore again, something as crazy as, as blindness blindness, excuse me, that’s major. That’s insane. That’s, you know, at least I felt like that’s pretty freaking impressive that in fact it can do that. Right. And he said that he, that he feels that they would have this company is prepared to, you know, go going, ask the FDA for approval within the next 10 years, that’s really, really, really fast.
0 (14m 28s):
And in fact, he added that within the next 25 years within he actually, I guess, has plans to have a, for a working interface for a whole brain, meaning this is a part that I’m really nerding out about. Cause I’ve said it to my wife. And I said, I told her friends meaning. And he said, assuming civilization is still around, you said, you will be able to basically remove or copy all of what you are into a whole brain interface.
0 (15m 3s):
Right. So right now in Joe Aston, right.
4 (15m 7s):
The host of the show. So as they’re like, wow,
0 (15m 9s):
I guess in a way it’s like, kind of like we do now, right? When you, if you die right now, you know, God forbid, or if I did these videos, it’s like a ghost of me it’s exists. Now you can kind of say forever, right? And in a way that is a part of you that is left behind right here, your mannerisms, how you talk height and all this, by the way, it can be taken later, like hypothetically. And I’ve never shared this. I think with media guys, I’m, you know, in a way doing this already a little bit ahead of time where I’m leaving my boys, my mannerisms, what I’m saying, the way I’m thinking.
0 (15m 41s):
So that possibly the technology is around. And if my Y wants to have my kids want to, they can incorporate right, all this footage into a system and an almost replicate me to have a conversation. Some of the tech is still is already there. Everything from holograms. Like if you guys wanna see the Tupac concert he gave, but post-mortem recently, or not recently a couple of years ago, rather, excuse me, it was all from different footage. I was collected, right. From other concerts he gave it, it’s a, it’s a hologram, it’s a, you know, nothing like you see in star Wars, but Tam Holi, you know, and for us to be able to possibly have that tech con, like you saw an example on, on Avengers, movie, rightward, Tony stark, you can see, you know, obviously you’re very, you know, you know, with a lot of, you know, would you call it special effects?
0 (16m 31s):
Recreate, supposedly when he was a kid, his mom and his dad talking similar, very similar all to stuff that we live behind. And that’s what he was talking about. Like a one point there will be some kind of full, you know, AI system that you can leave everything in every, in everything that you are. So it’s almost like you never die. It’s insane. I know, I know this topic is such a broad topic. I probably would need to break it down in so many videos and have different guests on just to talk about the possibilities of what he is saying that has companies are working towards.
0 (17m 5s):
So not even in theory, they’re working towards that. Right. And if we’re between the timelines of 10 to 25 years to have all that out, you know, hopefully it, you know, I’ll still be around to see all that. And, you know, yes. Maybe when it first comes out, it’ll be super expensive to get that done. And only the rich will be able to, but just like these phones right here, these screens, that camera that’s recording me, you know, it was this big and then as shrunk, and then now it’s like massively available to everybody, right?
0 (17m 35s):
So this tech would probably go through similar phases. I think it’s cool. I think it has its drawbacks. I think it has definitely some, you know, many downsides in that rather, you know, how it can be abused and, and, and all these use for profit, like everything else that comes out. But I think to a certain extent, it has has many positives to it. And you don’t want me to agree with me.
0 (18m 8s):
I know that life means different things to you and I live to you. And the fact that you’re going to die to some people might mean, you know, that it is more precious that the fact that you had your parents, your siblings, your significant other, your children, and you you’re going to die or in they’re going to die. And it can, I just brings more meaning. And the fact that that meaning can be, I guess, threatened or taken away, because now you can just say, Hey, I’m going to upload my subconscious in a way. Right. And, and, you know, in a nutshell to some AI, that’s going to act like I it’s me.
0 (18m 43s):
I know there’s going to be a lot of people are going to be like, screw that, dude. I don’t want any, any machine that gets me. That’s not mean if it’s a machine, it’s not me. And you know, I don’t want that for my children nuts. They know that you’re going to be tortured. That some group that has some, some group, not everybody, you know, look at technology right now. You know, I’m sure when it first came out, it’s like, dude, I don’t, I want to write a letter. I want to continue writing letters. Email is ridiculous. You know, it’s going to take away the essence of what I am writing.
0 (19m 14s):
You know, I can just picture that. I never heard anybody say that, but I can just picture that argument. Right? What is it like 20 something years ago when email came out and now it’s a psych, you know, even emails getting kind of like stale. And it’s like, Hey, that’s more on the social media and this than messaging. I think it’s just how we’re evolving as a society. And he’s not necessarily wrong to want to push all that out for people that want to want to. Cause he also made it very clear, neither him nor anybody. Does he feel to have the power? I should have the power to just implant something in your brain right now, the fact that you feel like, well, they’re going to ads have been conversation.
0 (19m 49s):
Let’s not get off traffic or off topic. Cause I know how you are, you know, at the end, those are my notes at the end, you know, I guess it’ll be your choice. It’ll be my choice if we’re still around. And whoever else is around to say, yeah, let’s go put me under implant is in my head because I look forward to the benefits of recovering my eyesight, not having maybe the, you know, had to suffer through Tourette syndrome or any other, again, like you said, neurological disorder that is preventing you from living quote unquote, a normal life, right.
0 (20m 25s):
To some and to others. I’m sure there will be protests and stuff like that. And demonstrations, we’ll be trying to, you know, cancel this out. And Jessica, we see now with an example, something as simple, excuse me, not simple, not simple, but something like abortion, right? It just, the tech came out. The ability came out and has evolved over years to do that. If wanted that kind of procedure. And we have people demonstrating outside of places that do that. Right. So I think, you know, you get the point, there will always be people that are posed that on the other hand, I think personally speaking, like I said, I don’t know.
0 (21m 0s):
I kinda look forward to it. Let me know what you think down below. Thanks for watching lights and subscribe until next time. See ya.
