It's too risky. Your body literally cleans toxins produced by the brain as it thinks. These toxins can cause permanent damage if left out too long. Brain cells are cannibalistic. Don't do it or you'll change for the worse.
>>7801232 Sleep researcher reporting in. Literally doing a study on whether or not certain events in NREM sleep correlate with memory consolidation.
Based on prelim data, I'd stick to monophasic sleep if I were you. Though I will say this: try it over summer vacation, with two weeks' padding where you sleep like a madman, just to be safe. If you can stick to the Uberman schedule and manage to literally spend the rest of your time studying, I'd be extremely impressed.
If your memory and general well-being doesn't tank too hard first, though
I tried it before for about 5 days. The first four days I was so tired it felt physically painful to stay awake, and then on the fifth day I felt actually well rested, but then overslept my 20 minute nap by about 6 hours and fucked up the entire experiment
>>7801429 The issue isn't just failure to actually fall asleep and wake up. There are multiple others that you just don't understand unless you've forced yourself awake for days on end.
Days seem to mush together. You lose a developed timeline of when something happened and thus lose the ability to compartmentalize information as well.
All that time won't necessarily help you either. You'll get fucking bored of studying, playing video games, and just not letting yourself sleep in general. You will be restricted to a strict time schedule where you MUST nap lest you fuck up the whole thing. Just go take a fucking break and get in bed you autist. Didn't your mom ever tuck you in?
