      “His life just sucks. It’s so stressful. He’s just so dedicated to these companies. He goes to sleep and wakes up answering e-mails. Ninety-nine per cent of people will never know someone that obsessed, and with that high a tolerance for sacrifice in their personal life.”

      I indeed can't even fathom what this must be like... SpaceX, Tesla, X, Neuralink, ... maybe his character twists are his way of burning out.

      The article kinda strays away from its original premise partway through, but still offers some interesting backstory and context for this strange character. I must admit I'm now slightly worried about his self-medication, what many would call drug abuse.

        Agreed, it's like a full list of (interesting) controversies involving Musk, related to power or not, had to be mentioned.
