I find nootropics – brain-boosting drugs – to be an interesting topic. Unfortunately, when I sat down to write about my top three nootropics, I created a stupid list that everyone will hate. If you like nootropics, this won’t help you. If you don’t, why on earth are you reading this? Hold onto your hats,

You can tell a lot about your life by how quickly time flows for you. For me, this is the best canary in the coal mine. When my perception of time breaks, that’s usually the first sign that something is going wrong. And based on what people tell me about time, there’s an epidemic of
I’ve been rewatching Seinfeld recently. It’s a genius show – how else could four characters generate enough content for nine seasons? Even though society has changed – mobile phones, let alone smart phones, solve a lot of the problems – the writing still snaps as sharply today as ever. It’s one of the few shows
Your unconscious mind is vast, mysterious and powerful. It controls all of your automatic processes, from beating your heart to processing your vision. And then there’s your memories, your habits and those beliefs which you don’t even know you have. Plus your emotions. Plus your immune system. And… well, you get the idea. If you
I try to be a mellow guy in all things, including my advertising. You have enough people trying to guilt or bully you into doing things their way. I’m from the school of marketing that says I should build you up into a better person – one who will also happen to buy my wares.

That’s not its fault, though, as the universe isn’t optimised for civilisation. We’re all just trying to make do with what we have. That doesn’t mean you stop trying, though.
I often said I’m not so much a fan of The Simpsons as its disciple. It was the #1 show when I was growing up – in the world and in my mind. It was clever, quotable and utterly addictive. I haven’t seen an episode in years, probably. Even so, I like to think I
… what would you do? There’s that saying – learn like you’ll live forever, live as though you’ll die tomorrow. Well, I can’t offer immortality. But I can offer the ability to learn anything quicker and easier than ever. And what would that do for you? I’m making up a number when I say six
It’s pretty hard to learn a new state of mind. Let’s say you want more mental and physical resilience. You could head over to a search engine, punch in ‘how to be tougher’ and wade through a billion pages to find the gold in the garbage. Then you actually have to do the exercises. What’s
You should always be highly suspicious of anything that makes contradictory claims. There are no shoes that make you both taller and shorter. There’s no energy drink that calms you down, too. How can one treatment, say, both raise and lower blood pressure? That’s not how medicine works. At least, that’s what I used to
