For the rest, it's worth noting that beyond the rhetoric, the site actually possesses a vast web of interconnected paper abstracts about pharmacology, etc, that I have found intriguing and useful (mostly as a diving board for further research).
Has it been rigorously shown that it is the introversion in individuals with eidetic memory that stunts their intelligence, as opposed to a mutual biochemical basis? It seems to me something like a naturally lowered threshold for LTP/STP could compromise intelligence by causing false positives in reasoning or predisposing one to digressions into familiar reasoning tracts, if not just fouling the delicate balance of preservation and elimination that is necessary to cull important patterns from noise in learning.
Plenty of intelligent people have been opiate abusers, many used it for inspiration - see Edgar Allan Poe for instance. But I admit I can't readily come up with any mathemeticians who shared the past-time :).
Addressing Cosmo16's mention of Brave New World, hedweb has an excellent series of essays on why abolitionism (as in abolishing sentient suffering, not slavery, except in reference to our state of enslavement by evolved systems of control) through chemical/bioengineering/nanotechnological means doesn't have to end up at all like that.
