Should start a poly-phasic sleep schedule? Will my life improve? Or will I slowly kill myself?

MEMES! MEMES! ALL TYPES OF MEMES! EVERYONE MUST BELIEVE AT LEAST ONE MEME!

Every study I've seen done on polyphasic sleep cycles showed negative results. Most of the claims about famous people who used them are false/have little supporting evidence.

I'm sure you could get by but sleep is incredibly important and you're better off getting as much as possible

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.

In other words, if I avoid sleep, I'll get to meet Tyler Durden?

>REM sleep is the only useful sleep
>the rest of your sleeping time is completely and utterly useless, even though we don't know exactly what happens during that time

its a meme you retard.

try laying down to go to sleep. you waste a variable amount of time trying to actually fall asleep and when you wake up, you'll wish you slept more. stop
>>
>>7801422
So how do you not waste even more times trying to fall asleep 3 or 4 times a day for naps instead of just one?
>>
>>7801232
someone said they tried this and it didnt work.

if you want to be a retard and try it then go for it.
>>
>>7801429
drugs can help you do it.
But they'll fuck you up in other ways. There's not much we can do, the human body is retarded.

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

so i called it quitsies
>>

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?

It'd be easier if I had a lover to go to bed with.
Didn't your mom ever tuck you in?
Nope. Will you?
