Daniel Schmachtenberger is best known for inventing the Nootropic Qualia, and now Eternis, produced by the Neurohacker Collective. But actually, that’s just one corner of everything that Daniel contributes. Daniel is truly a futurist, in the same way as Barbara Marx Hubbard or Peter Russell. He is an expert on mapping the architecture of possible future scenarios, and determining the best possible future for humanity.
People often asked me after Radical Brilliance was published, “So who was the most brilliant person you’ve interviewed?” I never hesitate for a moment. This is he. Let yourself be challenged, inspired, and motivated as Daniel explores what it takes to be an agent of evolution.
