    The culture is more "protocol" than "cosmetic" for a strong part. The super organism is artificial.

    Define artificial.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    What clues have you that all oh this is necessary.
    A society with no regulation, which you clearly advocate, would require this level of knowledge for individuals to make informed decisions.

    What makes the super organism unnatural? It evolved in this universe. There is no evidence of any sort of being not subject to the laws of this universe manipulating the human super organism. I'm having a difficult time figuring out how you can call it "artificial" or "unnatural", other than you just making up some BS arbitrary distinction in your head.

    It is in human nature to present an attractive body for others

    Of course, attraction is largely subjective

    Heroin in some kind of bar establishment sounds silly. Like I said earlier, people just nod off on it.

    I guess you call it a spa?

    It's probably one of the few drugs you wouldn't have worry about traffic accidents with. No one does anything while high. And when they're not high, they just think about heroin.
