Elon Musk is an optimist: There is no better time to be alive, Musk says.
"Humanity can address a lot of the suffering that occurs in the world and make things a lot better. I think a lot of times people are quite sort of negative about the present and about the future, but really if you are a student of history, when else would you really want to be alive?" Musk said Tuesday at a Neuralink event at the California Academy of Sciences.
"Now is the best time, pretty much. Those who think the past is better have not read enough history," Musk said.
