Suppose there was a drug that gave you amnesia and changed your personality. One dose and you start a new life as a completely different person. Move away and change your name first and you might not have any baggage from your old life at all.

Would you take it?

Suppose there was a drug that gives sociopaths fully-formed consciences, but leaves intact their memories of how they harmed others. Every cruelty and abuse they committed.

Would you slip some into a sociopath's drink?

Suppose there was a drug that cured clinical depression by turning the person taking it into one of those happy-go-lucky the-glass-still-has-water-in-it types who never let anything get them down.

Rusted Neuron – an Intentional Community

Rusted Neuron is an invitation-only 'Intentional Community'. It is not intended to represent a specific focus, although the people you find here are generally intelligent, creative, and witty. Content and conduct rules are set by the community, not by fiat. The one thing we will not tolerate here is intolerance; you can agree to disagree, but you must treat others with respect.

Currently the membership limit is 100 people and there are plenty of slots available. The goal is to try to replicate real-world community interaction and norms enforcement online. Keeping it small is intended to create a village atmosphere by staying well under Dunbar's Number.
