“Genius, sharp, visionary, industrialist, showman, in love, blue-green god who invents electric cars and moves to Mars. The richest man in the world has no home and recently began to sell off his property. It casts satellites into orbit and tames the sun.”
“He drives a car that he himself created and does not use gasoline – he barely needs a driver. With a movement of his finger, the stock market skyrockets or falls. An army of believers hangs from every dictum. He dreams of Mars as he “rides” on Earth.“
