Announcing a new Meetup for "With an Open Mind" Discussion Group!
What: Better Living Through Chemistry (Session 2)
When: January 22,[masked]:30 PM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Meetup Description: Historically, people used ?medicine? to cure illness or alleviate the symptoms of an illness. More recently, we?ve developed ?vaccines? to prevent illness. Now we?re developing ?supplements? that have the potential to ?enhance? our abilities.
Early in December, several scientists released an opinion piece in which they suggested that society should ?welcome new methods of improving our brain function," pointing out that doing it with pills is no more morally objectionable than eating right or getting a good night's sleep. They then called for more research and a variety of steps for managing the risks.
Under what circumstances would you ?take a pill? that might enhance your brain function? Would you encourage others to do the same?
Please note that this is a second session of the discussion to be held on Wednesday, January 21st. Those who wish to attend both sessions are welcome to do so (to benefit from the additional perspectives that will undoubtedly come up in a second session), but the primary intent is to give those who cannot make the Wednesday session an opportunity to nonetheless participate in the discussion of this topic. Further note that this session will be held in a different location ... perhaps one more convenient to some.
