For those of you who may have joined the Extropians list recently, I'd
just like to repeat my warning about tampering with the serotenergic
systems: It may reduce your intelligence, blunt your creative edge, and
otherwise screw up your mind.

This warning based on personal experience, plus some post-facto
rationalization and generalization.

Besides, severe depression is good for you.
