at the same time. If humans
did not need to rest periodically
the knowledge in their mind would be roughly 33% increased, the human race
would become more productive
, and there would be fewer rooms to a house.
Sleeping, on the other hand
, can be wonderful
when a person feels extreme exhaustion
, but the horrible feeling of waking
counter balances the ecstasy
-like feeling sleep can cause.
Another reason I despise
sleeping is the maintenance required by the action
; preparing oneself for bed, making the bed
, getting comfortable
, and then making yourself fall asleep requires a copious
amount of time. And that time, I feel, can become the most boring point of a human's life.
My final and most important
reason for hating sleep is that most of us feel that we Need
to sleep in order to function the next day
. We feel that we need
to get into bed and force our mind's to enter another state of consciousness that I feel our mind does not want to be in. Do you blame the mind
Of course, the brain
needs sleep in order to sort out the information
obtained during the day, but my conscience
would rather be sitting at the computer, reading, or just generally using the time to learn
, Leonardo Da Vinci would only sleep for ninety minutes
per day. Developing a normalcy for this minimal sleep, eventually, his mind adjusted. Therefore, we can hypothesize that his lack of sleep
could be the reason that made him one of the most brilliant
men who has ever existed.
A recent study
showed that the need to sleep is caused by Seratonin
levels in the brain. This chemical is what makes a human feel tired
. Although, we cannot take Seratonin in order to stay awake becauses memory loss
occurs when the brain is deprived
of sleep. But as studies progress, I believe that a "cure
" to sleep may be realized for those of us who would want one.
