Being Elon Musk

Some of you may remember my Getting out of the bath experiment, and some of you may not. But then we are not in control of what we remember, or what we think. Our subconscious reacts to the world around us, decides our next actions or thoughts, and our conscious brain then retrofits a false sense of agency and control. Out if this we create our delusion of being a separate self.

Can you imagine finding yourself in the position of being the separate self known as Elon Musk? Feeling that you have to be in control of the millions of conversations on Twitter and that you can’t trust any of the people around you?

I’d rather imagine myself being in the position of being me. That’s quite hard enough to be going on with.
