Originally developed for the treatment of narcolepsy, a condition that makes people suddenly fall asleep in the middle of what they do, modafinil is now used to keep people at ease and stay awake for hours without complications and no visible side effects, either the drug itself or lack of sleep.
Military studies show that volunteers of modafinil, who are awake for 40 hours, sleep for 8 hours, and then awake again, surpass the volunteers mercilessly and have a good rest.
In addition to the currently available drugs, more and more are on the way. It seems that we are ready for cognitive enhancers for dementia, have become more common. In the end, who does not want to quickly fix the memory drop? And which of us did not notice that everything is complicated, and the reactions slow down when we reach the age of 40?
And not only they are used as memory accelerators, but they are openly sold as such. Science seems plausible. They do work, and so far no serious side effects have been found.

Some types of therapy insist that you are “experiencing trauma,” but science shows that it is not only unnecessary, but is also positively dangerous. And why do you do this when there are other painless ways to reprogram these memories to make them more manageable?
One of the problems is that, perhaps, evolution has already optimized the processing of memories, so playing with our brains may have some long-term effects that we did not expect.
Personally, I can’t help but feel that this is a potentially dangerous way to leave. It is not normal to take medicines, and whenever we do this, we put pressure on our system to absorb chemicals and eliminate them from our bodies.
I worry that we are increasingly consuming drugs in the blink of an eye, for convenience and not because this is the best solution. For example, take antibiotics. The more we took them, the more bacteria developed to resist them, and the less effective they are when we really need them.
All other television advertisements seem to reflect our neurotic about germs, begging us to treat all surfaces. But as our intestinal flora changes as a result, we experience more eczema, asthma and other allergies. It does not matter that in areas of the country that are more rural, where children do not grow up in the original stables environment, but play outside in the bin, they become healthier and more resistant to infections.
