The Knowledge Drug is an RNA and a nootropic drug combination that can teach the user new skills and knowledge. Knowledge drug injections must be administered into the Cerebrospinal fluid by someone with medical skill to take proper effect. The drugs are tuned to either teach specific skills or apply to general knowledge and background information.

The acquisition of skills or general knowledge in this manner can be extremely dangerous. After the drug is taken the user enters a catatonic state, during which his mind assimilates the data. There is a significant risk, especially with repeated doses, the catatonia becomes permanent.
