Was wir beobachten, erklärt er, seien die gewagten Experimente einer Zwischenzeit, der lange Anlauf zum großen evolutionären Sprung. Die Menschheit habe sich eine Umwelt erschaffen, für die ihre genetische Ausstattung nicht mehr hinreiche, ihre Techniken zur immer notwendiger werdenden Selbstverbesserung aber seien noch zu unausgereift. Im Zentrum der Cyberkultur stehen daher provisorische Versuche, der Realität auf die Sprünge zu helfen. Deren revolutionäre Triebkraft war der Rock’n’Roll. Zum ganz normalen Milliardengeschäft mutiert, hat er heute seine innovative und existentielle Bedeutung verloren.

Sirius’ Liebling unter den smarten Drogen ist jedoch das euphorisierende und Gedächtnis steigernde Vasopressin. »Vasopressin ist der chemische Stoff, der im Gehirn erzeugt wird, wenn man Kokain oder Amphetamine schnupft. Das Zeug gibt einem einen richtigen Kick. « Andere, die Vasopressin versuchten, berichten jedoch von unangenehmen Nebenwirkungen wie Schwindelgefühlen, Krämpfen und dem unwiderstehlichen Wunsch nach Darmentleerung. »Sicher, heute sind die Chemikalien oft noch stümperhaft und roh«, räumt Sirius ein.

Der große alte Verrückte der Cyberbewegung begann seine Gegenkultur-Karriere in den frühen sechziger Jahren damit, dass er als Harvard-Psychologe LSD zu freiwilligen Experimenten verteilte, deren Sinn es im wesentlichen war, die Mauern der Realität zu durchbrechen und in neue Wirklichkeitsbereiche vorzudringen. « Anderthalb Jahrzehnte und alle denkbaren Drogen später entdeckte er das Bewusstseinserweiternde Potential der elektronischen Technik - und wies damit zahllosen Ex-Hippies den neuen Weg.
