Maybe if Apple, Facebook, Richard Branson and Elon Musk all had sex, then had a horrible baby. haha
Peter Weyland's Ted Talk left his last words being, "Come change the world with me." I would say he had a great technological influence on the world. So I guess when considering this, this would eliminate any spiritual influencers like Jesus Christ, Muhammad, and Buddha. Issac Newton and Albert Einstein could be some choices. Still, these are strictly sciences and math. Weyland also seemed to be very appreciative of the arts. The Renaissance times would probably reveal your Peter Weyland. People describe that timeframe in history as if "the planets were aligned" since we had so many great, diversified thinkers at that time (14th-17th century). Leonardo da Vinci is called a "Renaissance Man" because he was so influential and revolutionary in his ideas. What makes him so important is the times he lived in. He had many first, groundbreaking ideas for inventions later in the world. We really don't know the kind of competition Peter Weyland is facing. How much did he do to go to revolutionize the things we think he did? We do live in a very technological world like the one we see Peter Weyland in. So, then I guess the question is, "Who is still alive today who is similar to Peter Weyland in a technological world?" I think I'll choose Steven Hawking for this. He ain't as cool as Elon Musk, but I think his ideas on the universe are worth more than reusable rockets and deep pockets. I am no historian in any way, so I could be overlooking someone. Still, Hawking's is a theoretical physicist and had challenges with the disease he has...
I guess if we if you want somebody who has done something really important, you could look to Timothy John "Tim" Berners-Lee who is "best known as the inventor of the World Wide Web." We may not have AI like Weyland's world does, but I think we are all thankful for the internet. Probably just as thankful as I would assume most would be with a working, safe AI android.
The world Peter lives in is different in a number of ways than the one we currently live in. Still, I like the question. I like to see the Alien universe as an extension of our own. Still, Weyland's Ted Talk really breaks the connection I normally have had with the Alien franchise.
Thanks all relied man! @I Moon Girl @tdby2 @Ripleys_Ghost
I think about this question by myself.
First saying, I really want to become Peter Weyland.
I'm serious, not joking.
Because I think about that How can be more grateful than Steve Jobs? I like Steve Jobs very much, and I clearly was known some grateful man, like Bill Gates, Issac Newton and Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Elon Musk, Steven Hawking, and so on.
I also ask myself the same question when I saw the <Promethues> 2012 film.
I was looking for who, just like find the creator of the human .
I realized nobody can become Peter Weyland when I saw <Prometheus - The Furious Gods 2012>. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RgFY-kdQ-Y&t=9s
some subscripts to describe Peter Weyland:
"And why not have a seriously intelligent, I mean, genius? A man who's kind of a combination of,
you know......Edison, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.
He's the billionaire megalomaniac.He's a man who thinks outside of the square.
And a lot of people do that in life, but a lot of people don't have the facility......or the finance to be able to actually act on that.
I believe that he feels that we've gotten so close, that we're getting closer that it's actually possible to discover who it is that actually created us."
