> Guess it depends on how mis-wired your brain is, and how many Side Effects you have to deal with.


That raises a new question. If a brain is mis-wired, to what are we comparing it? What is the non-mis-wired brain, and how do we identify it?

I was once badly burned, and given Demerol the first day. Obviously, Demerol is not something one wants to take for any reason other than trauma, but while I was in the emergency room, I felt better than I did in my whole life. Similarly, I felt better on caffeine, nicotine and alcohol (all of which I now boycott).

Is the goal to stabilize and stop the intense suffering, as one person wrote above? Or should we shoot for something higher, and how do we know when we get there?
