Modafinil

“With a pill called Modafinil, you can go 40 hours without sleep.” The ramifications are astounding.

But then Edgar drops the bomb.

“The next generation of wake-performing therapeutics will be more effective. You’ll be able to stay awake for X amount of time and not add sleep debt. Ideally, it means being able to be up all day, all night, and all the next day and not have incremental increase in sleepiness or in sleep debt. It would be medication that gives you an interest-free loan.

“It could change the world. A complete paradigm shift. I’m not trying to plug my company. But we are in the forefront. We could see this being a reality, starting to become available, in about five years.”

Medical science is beginning to enter the realm of what was sci-fi only last decade.
