One problem though, there was no UpgradeArtifact! Rather than merely improving your critical thinking skills and/or increasing your ability to ''learn'' new things, somehow your new smarts come bundled up with all sorts of useful information such as knowledge of [[{{Omniglot}} languages]], history, sciences, and even highbrow culture and art. You aren't just able to intuit [[SmartPeoplePlayChess how to win a game of chess]] -- you know all the terminology and history of the myriad strategies available, as if you'd just had an advanced-level textbook [[SuddenlyAlwaysKnewThat downloaded into your brain]].

One problem though, there was no UpgradeArtifact! So '''somehow''' becoming smarter gives you all sorts of useful information such as knowledge of language, history, sciences, '''and''' for some reason the arts but more than that it forces you to like them.

On top of this, you gain an appreciation
for such "high culture" topics and lose any interest in the stuff the "dumb you" used to like. The implication is presumably that people who like classical music and fine art must be seeing some reason deeper meaning the arts but more than rest of the world is too dumb to pick up on, and once you've been thus enlightened, rock music and football lose all their appeal. However, this blessing tends to come with a generous side-helping of InsufferableGenius.

Sometimes justified with some [[TechnoBabble babble]] about NinetyPerCentOfYourBrain -- all
that it forces information was buried in your subconscious, you just weren't able to like them.

5. (Technically, it wasn't a brain upgrade -- it was emphasised that Gunn had the intelligence all along, and all the "upgrade" gave him was the knowledge and memories of a law school education.)
