^Except a recent study suggests it may not be feasible to expand human intelligence beyond its current level:
"These kinds of studies suggest there is an upper limit to how much people can or should improve their mental functions like attention, memory or intelligence.... There are always trade-offs. In other words, there is a 'sweet spot' in terms of enhancing our mental abilities — if you go beyond that spot — just like in the fairy-tales — you have to pay the price."
