Just an after thought here. They don't feel that they can make superhumans. But what if they can activate areas of the brain presently not used? What lies there? Perhaps a higher conscious level? Anyone want to take the red pill and find out? I may need to add this technology to the list of things I want to see before my day to pass arrives.

Hell, I used to fall asleep in Geometry class all the time and I did great in that subject, so it must work! I once got stuck on a homework problem, gave up on it, took a nap, and I ended up dreaming of the solution. I woke up, wrote it down, submitted it to the teacher and it was correct. I have a feeling the only way I could learn something is to learn it in my sleep. I've been plagued with sleep disorders all my life. I bet a brain like mine would be great for this sort of thing, it is probably wired for me to learn better when I'm not trying and am half nodding off.
