THINK TANK WITH TIMOTHY OJO
Elon Musk isn't only the richest man in the world; he is also one of the most popular people. Gone are the days where billionaires are hidden and their PR team does the talking for them because they are not known to be heavy talkers. But Elon Musk? Lol. The way this man got his wealth is not my concern, but what I am here to talk about is a theory I have fleshed out. Before I proceed, I will need you to put on your thinking caps. Ready? One of the ways opposition to the lordship of Christ will come is by having the majority of the world by its side. There have been several inventions over the years that have shaken the world and, truthfully, helped make life easier. One of the latest technological advancements is Artificial Intelligence (AI). All my life, I have heard of AI, but it is just coming to reality, or perhaps I should say it is becoming tangible recently.
Today, there are a bunch of things AI can do for us, from writing essays to mimicking sounds, drawing, solving equations, and much more. To be fair, all of these are wonderful, but what is the end goal? Open AI is a company that was co-founded by Elon Musk in 2015 but is now owned by Microsoft, Khosla Ventures, Reid Hoffman, and a few others. If you haven't been paying attention, it is one of the biggest AI franchises in the world.
They are responsible for the creation of ChatGPT, which saw millions of users in its first month of operation. But one thing that has been done subtly and has not received a lot of attention is the company's dark and daring adventure to make humans live forever. In fact, according to them, they want to create a consciousness that will allow humans to have memories of themselves and never die, because what is death? The absence of consciousness, is it not? So, when a human proposes an idea that seems to counter the offering of salvation, whose end result is eternal life, by saying they can make you live forever regardless of your beliefs, don't you see a problem? Again, as I stated earlier, this is something I have observed, and I am not saying my theory is final, but I am saying to examine it.
Through Musk’s Tesla brand, they are now experimenting with humanoids - AI robots. Moreover, not only has this man been hellbent on creating beings that live forever, he is also vicariously exploring the idea of taking humans outside of Earth with him to build a life on Mars, the closest planet to us. I am thinking, what if his idea is to say, "Since earth is for God, well, Mars has none of the creatures in your image on there, and so you cannot judge it."
Again, the idea of starting a new life on another planet has me in a chokehold because I am thinking, to what end? What is the end goal of this? If there is no agenda, then it is okay to explore that planet, but to live there when it was clearly not created for humans without having support, is illogical to me. But it is what it is.
Till I come your way again, no fall God hand.
