    This popped up in my news feed today (I LOVE Hacker News!).

    One of the things that stood out for me is the ability of psychedelics to possibly provide fast acting relief from depression and suicidal thoughts. This is something I need to bring up with the GF and her psychiatrist during her next appointment.

    This has been in the news A LOT lately. They should definitely pursue this. I can' think of a better way to "reboot" your brain.

    The brain. Everything else in existence lags behind in complexity and unknowns compared to it. The human brain is truly in many ways dark territory.
