There’s a belief held by some that certain drugs might be able to enhance the activities of superluminal (faster-than-light) particles in the microtubules within the brain and, if so, could greatly improve the mental capabilities of we humans.

(Thinkstock)

We address this and the possibility that the mysterious superluminal particles (inside the brain) may be related to genius intelligence in our new release bestseller GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ.

An excerpt from the book follows:

Some believe there is already a real-world equivalent of the brain-improving drug Bradley Cooper’s character took in the 2011 Hollywood movie Limitless. The film’s plot is about a guy of average intelligence becoming a genius and polymath overnight simply by taking a nootropic, or what’s more commonly termed a smart drug.

Cooper and DeNiro in ‘Limitless’.

Nootropics are drugs that improve various aspects of brain functions, including concentration, memory and alertness.

Officially at least, no Limitless-style drug exists and no consumers of nootropics are becoming geniuses overnight as they did in that film.

There are rumors, however, that smart drugs of the potency depicted in Limitless were formulated by chemists decades ago, but have been suppressed from the masses.

According to this conspiracy theory, classified nootropics are used by the likes of the CIA and various splinter groups of the global elite to turn spies and key political figures into extremely high IQ individuals. Sounds a bit far-fetched, we know, and possibly it is.

On the other hand, considering the well-documented and declassified mind control programs such as MK-Ultra, using suppressed intelligence enhancers on persons of interest seems rather benign by comparison – and very feasible as well.

Furthermore, any scientific breakthrough involving revolutionary smart drugs would likely be suppressed from the mainstream – at least within the parameters of such theories.

The 2012 film The Bourne Legacy, which stars Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz and was directed by Tony Gilroy, shows the CIA improving their operatives’ effectiveness by altering their DNA with top-secret drugs. Weisz plays a CIA chemist employed to design the drugs that make Renner’s character and other operatives physically and intellectually superior to average humans.

Are the plots behind such films pure fiction or are they inspired by real goings-on in the world of intelligence agencies and classified science?

The reason for mentioning this whole conspiracy theory is not to go off on some unrelated tangent without purpose or to explore something that is not practical for those wanting to become geniuses. Rather, we bring the subject up to assess whether science (not just official science but all forms of science including classified science) has already evolved to the point where highly sophisticated smart drugs have been formulated.

And if that is indeed the truth of the matter, then perhaps it’s possible for the layman to get access to such drugs – over the counter or perhaps on the black market – by purchasing little-known products or even creating exotic drugs themselves from raw ingredients.

One smart drug manufacturer, who we shall call XYZ so as not to inadvertently advertise their products or company, implies that there is a conspiracy in place whereby the FDA block the most advanced nootropics from reaching the public in a concerted effort to make sure Americans never get too intelligent!

“The official reason is ‘to keep the public safe’—this is the standard excuse given for police-state behavior,” according to XYZ’s website. “A more plausible explanation might be to keep the public from becoming too smart. A smarter public would be less tolerant of corrupt and incompetent government officials.”

Notwithstanding the theory of suppressed or classified smart drugs being withheld from the public, there’s already an impressive list of FDA-approved smart drugs freely available to Jo Public. And many users swear by them. Positive testimonials about such drugs range from customers claiming they achieved better results in exams to making more money in business and wiser decision-making in their personal lives.

IQ-enhancing drugs are nothing new. Italian neurobiologist Rita Levi-Montalcini (1909-2012), who received the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for her discovery of nerve growth factor, was said to be an early proponent of a smart drug. Some attribute Levi-Montalcini’s longevity (she lived to 103) and her ongoing mental sharpness to her daily routine of applying the very chemical she discovered to her eyes each morning.

And, of course, caffeine is a nootropic most people already use on a daily basis to fire up the brain.

Now smart drugs are widely available, and the masses are starting to catch on to this big-time – so intense is the hunger for such intelligence-enhancers.

For example, the term academic doping is starting to achieve mainstream awareness – and for good reason. Academic doping, which is the educational equivalent of sports doping, is on the rise and students on smart drugs are said to be achieving better grades.

Would you take drugs if they enhanced your memory, for example? (Thinkstock)

1 x pill = high marks for this student?

Numerous studies have shown around 5-10% of North American students and 1-5% of European students have used smart drugs to assist them with their studies. These statistics are likely to only increase as places in learning institutions become more competitive and expensive for prospective students.

Popular nootropics used in high schools and on university campuses all over the world include modafinil, dimethylamylamine and methylphenidate. Neurotransmitters like GABA and plant extracts such as vinpocetine, bacoside A and huperzine A are also commonly used by students because of the potential of these nootropic substances.

These intelligence-boosting and neuro-enhancing drugs and stimulants have been scientifically proven to increase productivity, memory and overall cognitive functioning.

In the June 16, 2014 edition of the academic journal The Conversation, an article on smart drugs co-written by Georgia State University neuroscience associate professor Nicole A. Vincent points out that “all around the world, students, academics and professionals of various stripes are increasingly experimenting with new cognitive enhancement technologies to boost their memory, attention, reflexes, clarity of thought and ability to function well with little sleep.

“Several recent studies,” the article continues, “report around a 30% improvement in language learning by subjects who used modafinil.”

Many of the intelligence-enhancing effects of smart drugs may relate to the importance of activating dormant areas of the brain, as mentioned in earlier chapters of this book. For example, the experimental drug NSI-189 has been shown to stimulate neural pathways in the hippocampus.

Incidentally, research into NSI-189 has been primarily funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which possibly supports the suspicion that the powers-that-be are researching smart drugs and using them in classified experiments.

DARPA…conspiring against The People?

Another drug compound called dihexa has been shown in laboratory experiments to build new neural connections in rats and mice and also to repair brain damage.

A July 29, 2014 article by the BBC headlined The truth about smart drugs covers the pros and cons of synthetic intelligence-enhancers and asks whether the Limitless (movie) scenario really is possible. Although fairly pessimistic overall, the article mentions that Gary Lynch, a professor in the School of Medicine at the University of California, “argues that recent advances in neuroscience have opened the way for the smart design of drugs, configured for specific biological targets in the brain.”

The article also quotes Lynch as saying memory enhancement is not very far off although the prospects for other kinds of mental enhancement are “very difficult to know… To me, there’s an inevitability to the thing, but a timeline is difficult.”

The BBC report continues, “In the nearer future, Lynch points to nicotinic receptor agents – molecules that act on the neurotransmitter receptors affected by nicotine – as ones to watch when looking out for potential new cognitive enhancers.”

So while nobody has been documented as becoming an outright genius after taking such drugs, it may not be far off before such an occurrence is official and on the record.
