Musk is my hero


We share the same condition of 'super bright' due to a lack of serotonin.  This is a hereditary condition that vaulted Western Civilization to the top.  It involves 'burning the brain candle' at both ends, that give Einsteinian originality.  It may involve an extra vein in the brain, to cool it off more.

The main advantage is to have 'brain storms' that assemble a huge amount of things, and puts out an original idea that ties it all together.  The downside is that the brain burns out at 40, and you need to do something about the serotonin.  The best is to do what I've been doing, and that is slowly shut down, and take anti-depressants that boost brain serotonin.

History is littered by those who didn't do this.  The worst is self-medication with alcohol and drugs.

The multi-hyphenate figure hasn't publicly announced any health issues recently, though he works notoriously grueling hours, sleeps little, and indulges in drugs including Ambien and ketamine — a lifestyle you might be able to get away with while you're young, but that inevitably catches up with workaholics in middle age, like the 52-year-old Musk.

Churchhill always got his sleep.  Most, like Dylan Thomas, just shoot themselves.  And Musk just lingers on.  Living to 50 with this condition, and doing everything wrong, is amazing.  He is my hero.  Anybody who uses cocaine at night to be able to drink more, never lives past 45.  His best ideas are behind him, and now he just lives on that history, and has weird ideas, like a rocket that bores through the earth.  I am sorry that he is heading to the final curtain.
