Peter Thiel
Too tired
I love how our subjective experience is nothing but the interaction between our wetware, other wet organs, and the chemical stew it sits within.

I imagine someone like 
Peter Thiel
just importing the gut, blood, and other organs --besides brain-- of healthy young high achieving athletes and getting his insides fully retransplanted every other week so that he can stew always within freshness.

placebo
belief that things were improving after these burnings would be rendered moot if they were to not actually believe that they were working.
