Is sleep necessary?
    #2884779 - 07/13/04 04:01 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Some of you may have noted that I never sleep and respond to most all posts accurately and succinctly and within a time frame not possible for a human. I am either:

a. an insomniac with no life and the fastest typist on the planet.

b. a robotic program emulation of a human.

c. an alien.

d. highly evolved and past the need for sleep.

e. a group of people masquerading as one entitiy.

When one is constantly in touch with the ground of being, no sleep is necessary.

The proof is in the pudding.

I don't think it has to do with "ground of being," or whatever that means. Some people just require less sleep than others.

Yeah I think I heard Jay Leno say in an interview that he sleeps just 4 hours a night and that is enough for him. I need like 9-10 hours.

I sleep maybe a few hours every few days if im lucky, that's all I can get. But I function just as well as anyone else.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Sleep? What is that?

I almost said it was unnecessary, but then I remembered that I actually enjoy what sleep I can get.

You will have to ask my girlfriend. I think my record is 13.018 seconds... Oh, wait! That is not what you meant, is it?

I will post a picture of my made bed, unslept in since 1979.

I had an experience once where I thought a 5th dimensional being named Lynda was communicating with me, she said all kinds of crazy things like sleep is unecessary and that everytime someone falls asleep they fall back into ignorance and if you go beyond the need for sleep you become 5th dimensional, which is a constant state of bliss...

Oh, and I wasn't on drugs at the time, either.  :tongue:

I would say it's all about quality of sleep rather than duration. Some people will sleep for 14 hours and wake up feeling worse then when they went to sleep. Others can sleep for 2 and wake up completely rejuvenated. sleep is good though.. I don't want to hear any bad mouthing of sleep!

I was tripping the other night and thought, "hey, I am awake... I don't need to sleep. That desire is illusory."

And, I honestly thought I had finally broken through and become enlightened. However, I sobered up and went to bed.

I'm just lucky my delusion wore off and I didn't create a thread claiming such nonsense...

I definitely need my sleep. I've only been able to go for about 40 hours without it. I can't stand how my skin begins to itch and my eyes and inner ears start to tingle.

I can do all-nighters just fine. Most recently, I was reading Camus' The Plague and I realized that it was dawn. I tried laying in bed, but I just wasn't tired. So I took a shower and went to the gym. The whole next day was weird. I slept hard the next night.

Those are signs from the spirits that you are almost ready to break through.

well, i dont think an alien, robot or evolved being would have said
"emulation a human" rather than "emulating a human"

so probably your just a regular shmoe.

I really enjoy getting at least 8 hours of sleep a day, and naps are fun too. Sleep and dreaming are very satisfying, and like DoctorJ said, they seem like extremely important aspects of my existence.
