I have quite a bit of experience with channelling (guides, angels, helpful beings) and there are certain tell-tale signs that someone is channelling… eyes, phrasing, accent, cadence. If you’ve been around people who are channelling, or you’ve done it yourself, the signs are fairly easy to recognize. Describing them to someone else… not so easy!
I have now watched dozens of interviews with Elon and there are definitely times he is plugging into something/someone else and channelling information or concepts. Not often, but it happens. He is also quite fluent, so it’s not glaringly obvious. But most of the time, he is not channelling, he is speaking from his integrated self – in my opinion.
One thing I’ve heard Elon say over and over in interviews is that he wishes he could turn off his incessant ideas. That’s something I would love to discuss further. I too have had incessant ideas my whole life. I remember reading a book where the business coach wanted you to practice writing down 10 ideas per day. “Are you kidding me?” I thought, “Who needs to practice that, and 10 is nothing!” But I have never felt tormented by my ideas, or tormented by my brain that won’t shut off.
I enjoy having continual ideas, being endlessly resourceful and innovative, inventing whatever I need that doesn’t exist yet. It is not a torture or burden for me. I wonder why it is for Elon?
Perhaps this is yet another area where horses saved me. Horses’ heart field and energy field is SO much larger than ours, that we automatically entrain to their rhythm. I’ve always said that meditation should be taught to newbies in a circle of horses – because the horses make it so easy to drop into stillness or zero point.
I have had numerous people write in to let me know they could never meditate until they did the guided meditations with my horses. Try one yourself:
But now let’s get back to the workings of Elon Musk’s mind. One of my ‘things’ is to listen to an interview and then pause to write down the good bits. At the end, it’s often very interesting what emerges – things that would have been mostly lost (or forgotten) had I not purposely tracked them.
All text below is quoted from Elon (my comments or interjections are in brackets), during this interview with Joe Rogan. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Let us begin…
A company is a cybernetic collective of people and machines.
(Cybernetics is the study of automatic control and communication functions in both living organisms and mechanical and electronic systems, involving the application of statistical mechanics to feedback: During WW II, cybernetics was used to develop radar-controlled antiaircraft guns; today the field is working on prosthetic arms and legs linked directly to the human nervous system.)
Collective AI in google search, we’re plugged in like nodes on a network, leaves on a big tree. And we’re all feeding this network with our questions and answers. We’re all collectively programming the AI. Google and all the humans that connect to it are part of one giant cybernetic collective. This is also true of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and all these social media networks. Constantly connected.
It is our id writ large – we mention all those primal drives, things we like, hate, fear. They’re all there on the internet. They’re a projection of our limbic system. The success of these online systems is a function of how much limbic resonance they’re able to achieve with people. The more limbic resonance, the more engagement.
(Limbic resonance is defined as a state of deep emotional and physiological connection between two people.)
Output got worse with thumbs. We used to have input with 10 fingers, now we have thumbs.
“It could be terrible. And it could be great. It is not clear. But one thing’s for sure, we will not control it.”
The outcome for humanity will be the sum of humans will. The sum of billions of people’s desire for the future.
If you assume any improvement at all over time – extend the time frame… 1000 years. Civilization is maybe 7-8000 years old, from time of first writing. This is nothing. So if you assume any rate of improvement, games will be inextinguishable from reality. Or, civilization will end. One of those two things will occur. Therefore, we are most likely in a simulation.
I’d rather be optimistic and wrong, then pessimistic and right. Enjoy the journey.
The universe as we know it will dissipate into a cold mist of nothingness, eventually. How can we make it last longer? Most likely there are many many simulations/realities. And outside the simulation is boring.
A game or a movie is a distillation of what’s interesting about life. An action movie takes a year to film – super boring – but is then distilled down into 2 hours, which is really great.
Your perception defines where you are.
I think we should take the set of actions that are most likely to make the future better. And then evaluate those actions and see if it’s true.
Elon’s ideas about this reality being a ‘simulation’ tally nicely with Eastern mysticism and quantum physics. The quantum field (our reality) is not made of physical matter, as we perceive with our 5 senses. Even the most solid table or rock is actually composed of waveform frequencies, that are composed of quarks (bundles of energy).
Guess what else creates a frequency? Our thoughts, our emotions, sound… so this is where the idea of a collectively held reality (simulation) comes in. Since the majority of us agree that this table is actually solid, then it is. But if most of us agree, for example, that this table is actually a set of frequencies that can be sung into a different configuration to form stairs, then it can be.
Our brains do not know the difference between an imagined event and an actual physical event. But if thoughts and emotions create frequencies, and frequencies make up reality… perhaps our brain physiology is actually telling us something our conscious mind hasn’t grasped yet!
Matías de Stefano has this to say about how ancient Egyptians moved solid stone blocks, weighing 2.5 – 80 tons each, with no machinery:
“To move the giant stones for pyramids, they set up 4 tuning forks opposite each other, on either side of the rock (so 8 total). And the combined vibration neutralized the electrons inside the stone, so then gravity had no effect and it was light and easy to move.”

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality that you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy, this is physics.” – Albert Einstein
