Re: Polyphasic sleep
I do think there's something to biphasic sleep. I also think many people need more than 8 hours a night (and lucky few who need less.) Our society is bad about regimenting things that are highly individual and variable. Like diet and sleep.
The older I get the more I think it's weird to eat 3 meals a day at predetermined times or sleep 8 hours a night. It seems to make a lot more sense to just eat when you're actually hungry and sleep until you feel rested.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
