After seeing the movie Limitless, I went into a frenzy.
Was there a real life NZT pill?
Can we really access more of our brain by what we consume?
I researched how to increase the brain's performance.
I found out that NZT itself was fictional.... however I have seen Dave Asprey say that NZT is based on Modafinil. Dave took Modafinil for 10 years and says the movie Limitless very closely showed the symptoms of taking Modafinil.
He mentions that almost everyone in silicon valley was on it. Most people that owned companies are always looking for ways to get an edge and are taking some type of performance enhancer. Perfectionist looked for an advantage in sports and beyond.
Then I found that there are herbal performance enhancers that are not prescription drugs. There are now a lot of companies that are making a bunch of these enhancers and they are called Nootropics. Dave Asprey himself uses and sells some of them so he stopped taking Modafinil.
It is an interesting area where there is a debate about the advantage over the side effects.
This is the brave new world of performance enhancers.
How far will we go for an edge?
