The Pathway to Genius: MTV's Topher Keene, Nootropics, Proving Intelligence And How Much Is Too Much
When does pursuit of genius get in the way of Real Life?
Imagine my surprise when, out of nowhere on MTV, I see a promo for "TRUE LIFE" featuring Topher Keene. Topher, friend of the show and childhood classmate of mine from Maine, has always been in pursuit of being VERY intelligent and proving it to the rest of the world.
This week MTV aired an episode of "True Life" where Topher uses brain-enhancing drugs -- Nootropics -- to ace a test that will prove that he's one of the most intelligent people on the globe. Girlfriend Amanda makes an appearance with him on MTV, and on the show today.
The episode got millions of viewers watching, and we asked Topher to stop by and do an interview with me and James Mccrae. Subjects covered include: Nootropics, Genius, Intelligence, When is Enough Enough and what's underneath it all.
