No, No, No.  I completely agree with you on the timeline, but all you guys,
St Elon included, are still thinking, and doing science, along with all
other physicists, in ways that can't distinguish between the world, and
knowledge of the world.  We refer to language and thinking that only uses
one abstract word for all things red (everyone in the entire world and in
all peer reviewed journals), as 'qualia blind' as it is unable to represent
effing of the ineffable things possible when you fail to distinguish
between red, and say the intrinsic redness quality of your visual knowledge
of red.  If you distinguish between red and redness, and provide the
required definitions, you can say critically important effing of the
effable things like: "My redness is like your greenness, both of which we
call red."  In reality no physicist can tell us the intrinsic color of
anything.  We can describe everything in our brain, but we have no idea
which of all those descriptions is your redness.  We simply haven't yet
connected our objective descriptions of stuff in the brain, with the
subjective qualities of the same physical stuff we directly apprehend as
knowledge of color and such, all because of our qualia blindness.  We live
in a colorful world, but still nobody knows the intrinsic colorness of
anything.  Once St Elon and everyone starts observing the brain in a way
that distinguishes between color and knowledge of color or colorness, only
then will we be able to connect the objective descriptions of stuff in the
brain, and your subjective redness.  Along with what it is like for the
rest of your consciousness - critically important to know what your
consciousness is like.

All abstract things, today, including all the artificial neural nets you
are talking about, represent things with abstract words like 'red' as
portrayed by the system on the right.  You can't know what the word 'red'
means, without a dictionary.  The physical redness quality your brain uses
to represent visual knowledge of red with is the definition of red, to
you.  In the future, we will be able to re-engineer you, to use your
greenness, instead of your redness, to represent red knowledge with.  See
our "Consciousness Not a 'Hard Problem' Just a Color Problem
<https://canonizer.com/videos/consciousness/>" video, for more information.

We are in the process of developing a new chapter called "The World in your
Head" which will educate people on what it will be like to be "uploaded',
moving your knowledge of your spirit, into another world in another's head,
over "computationally binding" links like the ponytails portrayed in
Cameroon's avatar <https://youtu.be/9Ru9fw7szQw?t=140>.  Also what it will
be like to upload yourself into a significantly upgraded world in your
head, with hundreds of thousands of times of knowledge resolution, and 10
or more additional primary colors, and so on.

Once St Elon finally realizes how to think in ways that distinguish
between red and redness, then their team will surely discover which of all
our descriptions of stuff in the brain is redness.  Only then will they be
able to finally discover what is required to upload your knowledge of your
spirit, into another significantly improve 'world' into an artificial head

As a preview of what will be contained in the new "The World in your Head"
chapter of our video in a much more compelling way, see chapters 5 and 6 of
my "1229 Years After Titanic
Cameron fan fiction story.
