Elon Musk says he believes meme creators ‘control the universe’ in odd tweet

SpaceX and Tesla founder Elon Musk has announced his bizarre theory on the inner workings of the universe and who controls it.

The entrepreneur's latest bizarre tweet comes in reply to another user who provided a link between cultural information and the boom of meme content.

Musk, in the now-viral tweet which garnered more than 23,000 likes and 4,000 retweets, said: "Who controls the memes, Controls the universe."

The tweet should be no surprise to fans of the 50-year-old business magnate, who is fast becoming an influential figure on cryptocurrency stock prices, Twitter memes and the future of Tesla tech projects.

Musk's viral tweet was in response to Marc Andreessen, who wrote: "All cultural formation in our time is now the development and propagation of memes that battle their way through a supply chain in cyberspace.

"Most die; some thrive. The memes that make it through encode deep meanings. This is as serious a process as has ever existed."

It's not the first time this week that Musk has fielded bold claims and ideas on the social media platform, with Musk calling a YouTuber's potential questions "silly".

His reply to Dave Lee, an investment YouTuber, showed a back-and-forth between the business magnate and popular content creator.

Daily Star reported the back-and-forth, with Musk being less than impressed by the YouTuber's series of questions regarding the CEO and his involvement with upcoming Tesla projects.

Most notable of all was the Tesla robot plans, which Musk will lead, like many of the other Tesla projects.

Lee had hoped to question the entrepreneur over Musk's involvement in so many projects but was quickly shut down by the SpaceX owner.

In a reply to Lee, Musk tweeted: "Dave, I know you're a fan, but this is a silly question. I don't drive programs because I want to, but because I have to."
