Why Doesn’t Elon Musk Want To Live Forever? — ‘The Why’

Welcome to the newest edition of The Why.Why doesn’t Elon Musk want to live forever?” Good question. (OK, it’s a little “Google news” but it beats answering those assorted inquiries about odd intimate acts. Seriously? We thought “The Fish Eye” was just the nickname for a piece of equipment on one of SpaceX’s new rockets, mmmkay?)

Elon Musk, the CEO and CTO of SpaceX, CEO and product architect of Tesla Motors and chairman of SolarCity, recently spoke at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, California. While he expressed a willingness to invest money in genetics, he does not wish to live forever.

Jillian D’Onfro, contributor to Business Insider, who also covered the event, confirmed that Musk “definitely doesn’t want to live forever.” The event moderator Andrew Ross Sorkin interviewed Musk and Y-Combinator founder Sam Altman regarding where they would be willing to invest funds in the future.

Musk sated he was interested in investing in artificial intelligence and genetics. While not yet involved in these areas and despite the fact that he believes they are both “fraught with difficulty”, he nevertheless believes they could alter the “destiny of humanity.”

Sorkin also asked for Musk’s opinions on Larry Page’s activities with Google Life Sciences, which recently announced its goal as “trying to cure death.”

Musk reportedly responded: “I’m not actually a huge proponent of longevity.” So why doesn’t Elon Musk want to live forever?

Musk explained: “I do think that having a good life for longer is better — we want to address things that can happen to you when you’re old, like dementia, that’s important — but I don’t know, I definitely don’t want to live forever.”

When pressed to elaborate, Musk responded that he was focused on quality. He would rather than have “100 good (years) total” than live forever with the health risks with which we currently live. “Well, maybe a little bit longer,” he concluded.
