Elon Musk: Human Consciousness May Be Rare in the Galaxy, But We’re Determined to Keep it Burning Bright

Humankind is most likely the only species “in this part of the galaxy” with a consciousness, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk told an audience in Italy on Saturday, comparing our species to “a tiny candle in a vast darkness.”

Speaking at an event organized by Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, Musk explained his desire to settle humans on Mars by quoting Italian physicist Enrico Fermi, whose ‘Fermi Paradox’ questions why, if extraterrestrial life is so probable, humans have yet to discover evidence of it.

According to Musk, one possable explanation for the scarcity of consciousness is that it is, in fact, quite rare.

“People often ask me do I know about aliens or something like that,” he continued. “The crazy thing is that I’ve seen no evidence of aliens whatsoever. Most likely, at least in this part of the galaxy, we are the only consciousness that exists.”

“In essence, human consciousness can be likened to a small, flickering flame in an expansive abyss, and it is our responsibility to take every measure possible to prevent it from being extinguished.”

Musk believes that humanity’s survival depends on addressing low birth rates in Western countries and becoming a civilization that can explore and inhabit space. While the recent test launch of SpaceX’s Starship rocket resulted in an explosion, Musk views this setback as a valuable learning opportunity on the path to making human life a multiplanetary phenomenon.

SpaceX began developing the Starship rocket in 2012 with the express aim of using it to transport crews and cargo to the red planet. In the early stages of its development, SpaceX referred to the rocket as the ‘Mars Colonial Transporter’.

Musk has often been asked his opinion on aliens, and despite jokingly referring to aliens as his “friends,” he has always cited the lack of evidence for extraterrestrial life. “Unfortunately I have seen no evidence of aliens yet,” he said in a speech at the 74th International Astronautical Congress in October, adding that “we are the aliens.”
