First of all, I know the rules about discussions of drugs, but I am not talking about illegal drugs here. I've read some articles about intelligence enhancing drugs, and it got me thinking. I had very strong opinions on either side of this case, and that surprised me. Let's say that the market opened for effective intelligence enhancing drugsm, would you take it? From one perspective you could think of it to totally unethical, and that the property of being intelligent has gone from being some respectful and highly admirable, to something that depends on how much drugs you take. Think about it! It's a disgusting thought. If the practice and training excessively is futile in some science, and that you would achieve the same results from taking drugs, how, and in what way would we take part of it. Intelligenet people, mostly, have very strong ethical bounderies, and I don't see it very impossible that many would choose not to take any kind of drugs. Other people, that may not have that boundary, may choose to take the drug, and then be on the same level as the others who have chosen not to. The values will totally change, and I find that repulsive. But let's look at it in another way. If many people decided to take these drugs, and to specialize in some field, to succeed and being on the level of the top researchers nowadays, wouldn't that be fantastic. If genious minds would start to produce in every field we would have a enormous rise in technology. This would of course be fantastic, but I find it hard to take any side of this. This is only what I had laying on my mind for the minute, but I have been thinking alot about it. I cannot help but admit that we live in a time where this is not happening, at least not in the way I was describing. So, I'm interested in knowing what you think about it, and how you would take part of it.
