Elon Musk has moaned he "keeps telling people he's an alien" but that nobody will listen to him.
The Tesla tycoon took to his social media platform, Twitter, to discuss life beyond our home planet, artificial intelligence, and other topics that no doubt keep the mogul up at night.
In response to the question: "Can AI become conscious?" Musk responded: "I often wonder where consciousness starts, as we progress from one cell to ~35 trillion cells.

"If the Standard Model is correct, then quarks & leptons become 'conscious' no later than ~13.8B years from start, assuming there are no sentient aliens.
"Btw, where are the aliens!?"
The question prompted one follower to reply: "Aliens might already be here," to which Musk responded he'd long been trying to warn people he was an extraterrestrial – but to no avail.
"I keep telling people I’m an alien, but no one believes me," he responded with a winking emoji.
Fans quickly proved, however, that there are plenty of people who trust his word.

"I believe you @elonmusk There’s no other explanation," one wrote.
Another added: "More impressive to know that you aren’t. Stunning level of achievement from the mind and the will of a single human!"
If Musk is, in fact, an alien, it could give him an unfair advantage in the apparent cage fight he appears to have agreed to against Meta boss Mark Zuckerberg.
Tensions between the two billionaires seem to have risen in recent weeks prompting the alleged brawl, and their rivalry came to a head after the Facebook boss launched an app to rival Twitter, Threads.
And while the duel initially started as a meme, it seems increasingly likely that it may actually happen one day.

Musk was recently snapped training with UFC Hall of Famer Georges St-Pierre, while Khabib Nurmagomedov's trainer, Javier Mendez, reckons Zuckerberg will win due to being "more of a dog".
And the prospective fight also has UFC kingpin Dana White salivating at the prospect of the two facing off inside the Octagon.
Speaking in June, White told TMZ Sports: "I was talking to both Elon and Mark last night, both guys are absolutely dead serious about this.
"They both said, 'Yeah, we'll do it!' They both want to do it. Mark Zuckerberg hit me up first and said, ‘Is [Elon] serious?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know, let me ask him.’ I asked him, and [Musk] said, ‘Yeah, I’m dead serious.'"
