in the future, products will include psychoactive elements as a major part of the product. undeniable as it influences the experience of people thinking, base of all experience. example: music recommended with taking weed or something. late stage would be “requirement” for its functionality (or an integrated dosage service)

is there some neurotransmitter consumable as a drug that will help us aliggn our incentives?

like the nicotine-gymming idea. wear nicotine patches when going to gym

what we want is a more well-balanced neurotransmitter that can be used as a drug in guiding our behavior. like how sci-fi books describe addictive drugs–where they have the system of reliance in place, but its always for some bad reason. we want to find a way to do it for good reason. and also have it be less addictive, so its not controlling
