If you can train yourself to become a temporary moron, you can have the
advantages of faith and sceptical thinking when you are not moron. But for
some applications, long term work is required, and then you have to be a
moron for a long time to keep motivated. That is harder.

Perhaps we will need some true believers in the Church of Transhumanism
to really get started...
