Not sure I really care to hear what Musk says these days. He's really jumped into the deep end.

Wow that Musk interview was weird. And I didn't even listen to it. Probably the first time in history a single podcast has reduce the networth of several people by millions of dollars.https://globalnews.ca/news/4435710/elon-musk-weed-tesla-shares-drop/

In a controversy, the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.

The amazing thing about Silicon Valley is that even when they're being over the top and silly, they're dead on.

But yeah....how could he have seen this coming?

I'm about 2/3 of the way through the Tyson interview. I'm enjoying it.

I don't know how many people know this, but often it's mindblowing when you learn, that some infinities are bigger than others. [...] The number of counting numbers...so 1, 2, 3, up to infinity...the numbers you would use to count things, that's infinite. The number of irrational numbers...so the numbers you cannot represent as a fraction, okay, there are more of those than there are counting numbers, by far. So these are orders of infinity. Then there are more transcendental numbers than there are irrational numbers. So that's a number you'll never find as a solution to an algebraic equation. So pi is a transcendental number. e is a transcendental number. These are magic numbers that show up in mathematics. And it turns out there's an even bigger infinity of those than there is of these other two classes of numbers. And they use the Hebrew letter aleph in ranking. So it's aleph-1, aleph-2, aleph-3, aleph-4. I think there are five levels of infinity.
