I have been reading FLOW and am immensely impressed. However, it causes me
to add a feature to your list. I also want another eighty points or so on my
IQ, a photographic memory and in addition instead of the 126 bits per second
mental processing speed that FLOW reports we humans as having I want to
double or treble that speed. Then I can ride a bicyle, chew gum and juggle
at the same time.
