QUOTES:
“There was one question that mattered to me among all, which was, how could I create the most value for the species? It was the only question that I cared about. I didn't care about making money, I didn't care about retiring at 65. It was just that single question that led me on the path that I went on.” [3:45]

“I love life. I love playing the game of life. I don't want that to stop, so if I see something that's going to potentially stop my gameplay, I identify it. Like, hey, that thing needs to be solved. I don't know how we could be oriented any other way.” [33:53]
