    In the 60's people in various fields had their brains hacked so to speak with mixed results/..

    But here’s the clincher. After their 5HT2A neural receptors simmered down, they remained firm: LSD absolutely had helped them solve their complex, seemingly intractable problems. And the establishment agreed. The 26 men unleashed a slew of widely embraced innovations shortly after their LSD experiences, including a mathematical theorem for NOR gate circuits, a conceptual model of a photon, a linear electron accelerator beam-steering device, a new design for the vibratory microtome, a technical improvement of the magnetic tape recorder, blueprints for a private residency and an arts-and-crafts shopping plaza, and a space probe experiment designed to measure solar properties. Fadiman and his colleagues published these jaw-dropping results and closed shop.

    I am puzzled as to why this thread should be revived after a year. Is there some new justification for 'hacking' the brains of students that I have not read here? It was and is an appalling suggestion that students should be guinea pigs for dangerous experiments with their brains/minds.

    I was reading the article above on the use of LSD. While the idea of students of having or not having their brains hacked may have run out the article above was most appropriate for this thread. Didnt want to start a new thread on the topic.
