Default Sleep

Has anyone ever tried polyphasic sleep?

One of the things that sucks most about sleeping is that it takes up so much of our time. Think how much more shit you could get done without having to sleep 7, 8, or 9+ hours a night.

I'm particularly interested in what is known as the uberman sleep pattern, where you only sleep for 20 minutes, 6 times a day, for a total of 2 hours of sleep.

Monophasic sleep is extremely wasteful. When we sleep, we go through cycles. One of these cycles, REM sleep, is where most of the benefits of sleeping come from. We don't spend too much time in this stage compared to the other stages. So the trick is to get your body to dream sleep immediately upon falling asleep. Another problem is that you have to take your 6 naps within 30 minutes of their scheduled time or you will get extremely tired and be fucked.

It's probably not healthy, but it is kind of an interesting thought.

Sleeping is awesome. I'd rather sleep more.

Quackery. Realistically, you can only trick circadian rhythms for limited periods of time before they start fucking with you. Unless you absolutely have no choice, let your body naturally cycle through all of the sleep phases. Unless you're in a situation where small bursts of sleep will benefit you (you're in danger of a predator eating you), cycling through all of the stages is better. Polyphasic sleep gives you more total awake time, but at a much lower quality.

Yeah, everything I've heard about people who actually have the incredible will to follow through the polyphasic sleep thing ends up with them being very positive and thinking it's great for a few weeks, then totally crashing and going back to normal sleeping again.

How is it that doctors, while in their residency programs, are able to go 30 or 36 hours with little or no sleep while on call and not kill their patients? My guess was polyphasic sleep with these little naps throughout the day and night.

Good conjecture. Don't bother wasting time asking one first, I'm pretty sure you're correct now.

Just because they're able to operate at a functional level, doesn't mean they're operating at a maximal level. They don't kill their patients because (especially in the beginning), because they're HEAVILY supervised. When hours worked is taken into account, residents basically get paid minimum wage. There's a reason for that.
