Why would you think he's a bot?
I see him as someone who sees the world around him very differently from you or me.
Communication between parties depends on them having a common understanding of the world they inhabit. That's kind of what the article is about. It's also why we can't communicate with dolphins, they are more than capable of communicating amongst themselves everything that they need to to live in their world, but that world doesn't overlap our human world.
If someone has in their head a different model of the world to yours, that doesn't mean their opinions are any less worthy, it just means the communicating with them might be more difficult.
This is why social media's creation of bubbles around people is leading to increased political polarisation, I see this as extremely dangerous.
There's a point beyond which more talking is a hindrance to progress, not a help. I used to socialise on usenet, and saw plenty of discussions there descend into insults. It's all happened before.
Allowing the unwashed masses onto the internet is ruining it. That also happened before on usenet: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eternal_September
It's about time we put a stop to the ever-increasing pace and madness of technology development, I think we should take note of the Golgafrinchans and build 3 large arks to evacuate the planet (Elon could build them), but this time send the 'A' ark first.
