Elon Musk has become one of the most influential people on the planet. Musk's tweets and statements often have enough power to move the stock and crypto markets, which the billionaire is well aware of. In the past, Elon Musk has been investigated by the SEC for manipulating the stock market through Twitter and fined a hefty sum for his actions. Since then, Musk has refrained from commenting on the stock market but has turned his attention to the unregulated crypto market. One of his recent Tweets, a meme about the Ship of Theseus, has become viral and has sparked a search interest in Theseus crypto. Read on to know about Elon Musk's esoteric meme about the Ship of Theses. 

Elon Musk Tweets about 'Ship of Theseus' 

Elon Musk posted a tweet about the 'Ship of Theseus with the caption, "Esoteric meme of the day", along with a historical meme where two statues are discussing the Ship of Theseus Paradox. Elon Musk's 'esoteric' tweet may be confusing to many people as they would not be aware of the Ship of Theseus Paradox. The Ship of Theseus, also known as Theseus' paradox, is a thought experiment that raises the question of whether an object that has had all of its components replaced remains fundamentally the same object. So when most of the parts of the Ship of Theseus have been replaced, is it still the Ship of Theseus or something else entirely, which is the essential question that the paradox presents. Musk's tweet presents the Paradox in the way of a meme that you can take a look at below. 

The Ship of Theseus meme is inspired by the original Star Wars prequel meme, which has Anakin Skywalker and Padme in a conversation. Musk himself posted one of these memes previously on his account, as you can take a look above. The Star Wars prequel meme started getting popular on Reddit and has since then become viral all over the internet. Elon Musk's recent meme about the Ship of Theseus has sparked a search trend about 'Theseus Crypto' on Google Trends. In reality, there is no real cryptocurrency called the Theseus crypto, which just goes to show the immense influence Musk still has over the crypto markets.
