In Limitless (the 2011 movie, not the TV show), Eddie Mora starts to take NZT and comes to some sort of epiphany where he formulates a long term plan. However, it's not clear to me what that plan actually is. First, Eddie attempts to make money in the stock market. Then he plans to merge two companies (the largest merger ever). And then by the end
Eddie runs for for US Senator, and Van Loon implies that he will eventually be President.
However, it's not clear to me what Eddie's actual goal turned out to be. I suppose he simply wants to eventually be in a high-position political office, but to what end? What does Eddie hope to accomplish by doing that? And how does brokering a merger between two companies fit into this plan? Does he just want to make more money?
