Summary of “Extreme biohacking: the tech guru who spent $250,000 trying to live for ever”

In September last year, the young Silicon Valley entrepreneur Serge Faguet posted an article on the tech website Hacker Noon.
Faguet intends to live for ever, merging with robots and becoming an ultra human.
“You hear about all these tech billionaires who do these crazy things, but you don’t really know what they do, right?” Faguet says.
Faguet’s interest in extreme biohacking began five years ago.
Faguet claims to have permanently enhanced his intelligence by taking a massive 900-1,000mcg dose of LSD. He has used MDMA, too, as a way of emotionally connecting with his family back in Russia, and once to work out a disagreement with a colleague.
What if the US introduced legislation to curb genetic innovation? No country is “Going to tell me when I am going to die”, Faguet says.
“If I’m going to a place in the evening where I can pick up girls,” he wrote last year, “I don’t wear orange glasses because I feel a bit insecure about them in a sex-related context.” There aren’t many women in Faguet’s life, and he has no interest in a relationship.
At the bottom of the comments section on the article he posted last year, one woman wrote that she wouldn’t put herself through all this, because “I wouldn’t be the real me. I can’t help but feel sad that you dislike yourself so much that you put yourself through this.” Faguet responded coolly: “Oh I definitely dislike the unenhanced myself [but] science clearly shows that a ‘real you’ doesn’t exist.” There’s no love or radical acceptance in Faguet’s self-help prescription: it’s either upgrade, or fail.
