I had a dream that I was in school, turning in my physics homework and Elon Musk was my teacher. He had this face and said that he "really liked this" pointing to my equations and work.
I never really felt motivated to get my degree until that dream. Wow. I really want to just impress this guy. I think that would be one of my life goals.
You should tell him that
Only if he replies with some inspirational sap.
I have an ex-girlfriend slightly higher on the autism spectrum than myself, who became absolutely obsessed, after a certain point, with Salman Khan.
She entered a euphoric state thinking about volunteering or being employed by Khan Academy, and came very close to orgasm (loud, incomprehensible, hyperventilating, moaning, flushed) in public thinking about interacting with the man, getting her work noticed by him.
It was rather bizarre. I think I dodged a bullet, there.
You are someone studying physics, someone who one day may know more than anyone else about how the universe work
And your life goal is to impress someone whose only merit is having a lot of money.
Humanity: One step forward, two steps back.
>someone whose only merit is having a lot of money.
i mean, not saying wanting to impress the guy is something commendable but he did some really remarkable accomplishments
