Although our book states that a greater percentage use of our brain could lead to have possible telepathy and psychokinesis skills, the skills Bradley Cooper seemed to gain for the long run were more related to those of a drug-addict. Cooper had the ability to reach all 100% of his brain activity through a pill that some people compare to ADHD medication. His concept of time was getting lost as he says, "I have no memory of the past 4 days" and his withdrawal symptoms grew tremendously. The great Robert De Niro played a key role in the movie and asked Cooper if he has asked himself what he will do if he were to run out, to which he quickly responded with, "you'll die".
I would recommend this 2011, PG-13 movie to anyone!
