If this kicks off and segues into trans-humanism, in a major way, Elon Musk could possibly go down in the future as the guy who not only got us to Mars, but as one of the pioneers who helped supplant and eradicate the Human Species(Homo-Sapian) in its natural condition.

Imagine Elon in the future doing a revamp of this song only replacing the radio and video with machines and humans . . . .

Just my opinion, but I do. His idea is that you beat the machines by becoming the machine seems like the 'Ouroboros' of solutions for mankind.

Unless, in his thinking, he is factoring that somehow if you lay a bedrock of regulation and legislation now, you can provide a safety-net that will stop a near on lock-step progresive meta-morphosis from human to machine in the future.

But, he must know that with the free-market businesses will always look to exploit loopholes and improve their products to gain an advantage over competitors, and that trans-national differences in law making, that could provide competitive advantages, in developments here, could force domestic deregulation to get ahead if there was a trade imbalance or threat to National Security in a financial or economic setting as AI, trans-humanism and so is gonna factor largely in terms of its contribution to an economy and immersion in societies in the future.

Ultimately, only a global or One World system of law, in this domain, might facilitate some sorta universal cohesive effort to keep the ethical ramifications under control?

(A future AI and Transhumanism debate regarding this, might also become an important factor in the argument for such a system? How convenient for some that would that be . . . .)

It seems to me, he thinks that ultimately it's a Hobson's Choice and we have to go down this route.

Why he wants to go down as the pioneer of this I don't know, because it's not gonna end well if you really think about the future ramifications . . . .

It'll be a great journey though, until the crash.
