Nootropics are foods, supplements, and drugs that support brain function and promote mental performance. Sometimes people refer to them as "smart drugs" or the "limitless pill."

Celebrity technologist Elon Musk recently suggested that we may be living in a computer simulation. Of course this made technology news headlines around the world. And of course many articles have rushed to reassure their readers that Elon's suggestion is "outlandish". Outlandish or not, however, Elon suggested something far more important than the possibility that we're living in computed world. And almost everyone has missed it.

I just made a loan to a borrower in Nabatieh, Lebanon. Join me on Kiva today, and you can make a difference in this borrower’s life, too!
A portion of the loan helped a member to repair his old machine and buy new moldings to facilitate his business

Since 2010, I've been researching and using nootropics. Sometimes called "smart drugs," nootropics are dietary supplements that support brain function and promote mental performance. Persuaded by consistent reports from scientific literature, I began using creatine as my first nootropic. And within five years, increasingly pleased by the results, I had added half a dozen other nootropics to my diet. Along the way, I faced six challenges common to...

It took me two years to read the 216 pages in Eric Steinhart's book, Your Digital Afterlives: Computational Theories of Life after Death. Friends know that's because I'm the world's slowest reader of philosophical texts that interest me -- and just about any text that interests me seems to become philosophical as I read it.

I've published version 3.3 of the New God Argument. The changes since version 3.2 are to simplify language in the propositions and to adjust the definitions accordingly. Most are minor. But one is particularly worth direct attention. I've combined "superintelligent posthumanity" into "superhumanity," reflecting provided definitions of "superintelligence" and "posthumanity." These changes will appear in an article I'm writing about Mormon Transhum...

A friend wrote to ask for my thoughts on the relation between nootropics and the Word of Wisdom. Nootropics are substances that support brain function and improve mental performance. They include foods, supplements, or drugs that may improve memory or focus, or support healthy cognitive aging. The Word of Wisdom is the Mormon code of health as described in scriptures and elaborated upon in the Mormon authoritative tradition. "Is it moral to take ...

Our generation is not the first to question the compatibility of religion and science, and our generation would not be the first to reconcile the two. History provides innumerable examples, including that of Christianity, which has repeatedly challenged and embraced science, as the two have evolved together, each affecting the other in a feedback loop. In this series of posts, I'm exploring Christianity's recurring conflict and integration with s...
