Sometimes instead of talking about problems, I like to kick back and talk about a future with the Cybertruck! This article explores why it’s so good, in fact, it’s mentally healthy to anticipate the delivery of your Cybertruck.
Why anticipating delivery of Cybertruck is good for us
In a statement from the National Institute of Health,
“Anticipation, paying attention to the upcoming stimulus predicted by a contextual cue (Bermpohl et al., 2006), has important implications in human well-being and mental health. Anticipation confers important evolutionary benefits to human beings.”
In short, anticipation is often as valuable as the actual end experience. For example, there are tens of thousands of people who are excited by the prospect of humans one day going to Mars. It is truly important to be able to wake up in the morning and be excited about the future. SpaceX’s Starship mission to Mars accomplishes this for many people. Likewise so does the excitement of the Cybertruck.
“You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great - and that’s what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It’s about believing in the future and thinking that the future will be better than the past. And I can’t think of anything more exciting than going out there and being among the stars.” -Elon Musk
What Will You Do with Your Cybertruck?
Here are some of the comments seen on Twitter about what people plan to do with their Cybertruck:
“Work on the farm and hauling cattle.” - Justin Owens
“Stare at it parked in my driveway, sitting in a camping chair drinking a home brew.” - Rich
“Use as an everyday car and haul garden things.” - Richard
“4 wheeling on Mars” - Die Antwoord
Cybertruck Sightings in the Wild
When Cybertruck sightings occur, hundreds of people begin to analyze the changes they notice. Everybody is excited about what the final product will look like. In the most recent sighting there were changes noted in the rearview mirrors and lighting. Elon Musk confirmed on Twitter that the Cybertruck will have a solid red lightbar in the rear. Owners can remove the new triangular-shaped rearview mirrors after purchase.
There is a period of time when different styles of windshield wipers were spotted. This led to extensive speculation and a lot of outspoken views on why people did or did not like the large solo windshield wiper.
My thought is that as we get closer to Cybertruck deliveries this year there will be many Cybertruck sightings which will fill people with more anticipation and excitement. My other take is that Cybertruck will continue to evolve and improve over time so it’s exciting to think that the longer somebody waits to take delivery, the more refined the product will be!
In addition to Cyber anticipation, Tesla investors day is on March 1 and will likely lead to more anticipation!
