The expensive Racetam that made me optimistically narcissistic

This is a Racetam which actually made me really optimistically narcissistic... I'll explain what I mean by that a little later... While they are very different smart drugs, for me Phenylpiracetam is very similiar to Modafinil... It you want to get so focused on complicated technical work, that even though you are working somewhere public, like a coffee shop,...

Pharmaceutical grade Modafinil

This is top of the line pharmaceutical grade Modafinil, these are both from Sun Pharmaceutical, in India. People get confused by all these names, Modafinil, Provigil, Armodrafinil, Adrafinil, Vigia, Modalert, Artvigil, etc. Modafinil is it's own branch of the smart drug category tree, there's a few varieties of it with a shared mechanism of action and since it's...

L-Theanine gives my creative process wings to soar

If you are a creative type L-Theanine is worth your attention. Bloggers, authors and especially adcopy writers should know that... L-Theanine is a promoter of Catchyismismism, definition: Ad copy that is soaking wet with creative, articulate, and concise eloquent grammatical constructs which will grab your reader\'s attention like a lover. As creative types we fantasize about this perfect...

I don't see what all the hype is about

I've been doing 30 milligrams of Noopept almost every day for the past 3 weeks, I did Liftmode Noopept for about a week also. Noopept is not supposed to be a blast your face off effect, I haven't noticed much honestly. I think that Noopept is more a tool for Biohacking and than lifehacking... Let me explain what I...

a Masterclass on a Lost Art

My friend Hypnautic recommended Robert Greene's book The 48 Laws of Power to me when I was younger. I really liked the illustration of power dynamics via historical examples, battles, political intrigues and characters. This book takes a similar approach examining the lives of various scientists, doctors, inventors writers and artists. I'm glad I read Mastery but it...

A tangy Nootropic that makes you downright frisky

Phenibut is an ideal social smart drug for 2014 Jonathan, but I'm not sure if it would have been for say 2008 Jonathan. Now I'm very mindful, especially in social interactions; I've trained with technology like Dual N-Back and the emWave2 to be very present. I've actually spent the majority of this year completely sober, see my article about partying...

A clumpy focus drug for nerds

It modulates the Ampakine receptor in the brain, Ampakinic drugs have actually been investigated by Darpa. Which is the shadowy military research organization that there's all kind of crazy conspiracy theories about. So if the US government wants to hire me to broker a interstellar peace arrangement with aliens, or travel back in time to save JFK you can find...

Training emotional antifragility

The eWM Classic mode is my favorite and closest to the original N-Back task. With the N-back box replaced with faces with a variety of expressions. The verbal data you need to store in your working memory is sprinkled with emotional phrases: hammer, door, hate, auto, rape, bird, circus, smile You have to purposefully ignore the emotional data, and cold...

Ready to Rise!

I picked up Rise of Superman because I would like to spend more time in flow states. I believe in hustling hard and hustling smart but I know that I don't actually spend that much time in flow. Flow states are a result of evolutionary psychology that drastically increases awareness of the world around us. The book does...
