SpaceX and Elon Musk fans were left confused after Tesla CEO posted a peculiar tweet about the ‘old world dying in a blaze of splendour’.
Musk additionally appeared to reference a conflict that could be among us. It comes after the Taliban took over Afghanistan as thousands dread their lives under their horrible rule.
Many people think that the message could be alluding to the uncertain situation in the nation and while others joke it is a sign about Dogecoin, the digital currency billionaire Musk owns.
But, it appears the message is from a historical fiction book that starts with a funeral, with a huge parade showing up to pay tribute.
The tweet reads which is from the textbooks of world war 1: So gorgeous was the spectacle on the May morning of 1910 when nine kings rode in the funeral of Edward VII of England that the crowd, waiting in hushed and black-clad awe, could not keep back gasps of admiration. In scarlet and blue and green and purple, three by three the sovereigns rode through the palace gates, with plumed helmets, gold braid, crimson sashes, and jeweled orders flashing in the sun. After them came five heirs apparent, forty more imperial or royal highnesses, seven queens – four dowager and three regnant – and a scattering of special ambassadors from uncrowned countries. Together they represented seventy nations in the greatest assemblage of royalty and rank ever gathered in one place and, of its kind, the last. The muffled tongue of Big Ben tolled nine by the clock as the cortege left the palace, but on history’s clock it was sunset, and the sun of the old world was setting in a dying blaze of splendor never to be seen again.
The tweet went viral on Twitter and received 33k Plus like and 2k plus retweets Several people reacted to this tweet:
One said: Doge-perversion of the lowest order. This is not how the world moves forward…
A second one added: I loved this book, when I told my grandmother (a history buff) about it, she borrowed my book immediately and never returned it. She died last year. When going thru her stuff we found out after that she made ridiculously detailed notes and research from this book. I miss her.
While a third one said: Aren’t you out there wasting time with flamethrowers and stuff? First your saving the world, next, flamethrowers and rockets. Talk about a disappointment.
