NY Mag – Modafinil, which is marketed as Provigil in the United States, was first approved by the FDA in 1998 for the treatment of narcolepsy, but since then it’s become better known as a nootropic, a “smart drug,” especially among entrepreneurs. More recently, it has attracted traders like [Peter] Borden who don’t just need a pick-me-up to get through a deadline; they need to be on, without a break, for months, even years at a time.
So by the looks of it we are a step closer to having a pill that can give us crazy speed and use of our brain which is just flat out weird. Yes it is awesome to be able to do math faster than a
calculator Asian or find trends in something that can give you record profits. But let’s discuss something BIGGER than this right now. If they can make a pill similar to NZT in Limitless who is to say they can’t clone the DNA of dinosaurs and open open a Jurassic Park? Or who is to say Jedi’s don’t exist?
Well if this pill is for real ladies and gents…we are one step closer to Luke and Princess Leia being born to the man who will become Darth Vader. It’s not completely out of the question.
