Alright, by inspiration from a dear friend of mine, I will be attempting to change my sleep schedule once again. Instead of sleeping an entire 8 hours or more at night, I will be taking 20 minute naps every 4 hours exclusively at  2 PM, 6 PM, 10 PM, 2 AM, 6 AM, and 10 AM. This is formally called polyphasic sleep and has other forms (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyphasic_sleep).
I had a roomate once doing exactly that, after a few days he looked _really_ bad.
It may be a fun thing to try but I'm sure everybody having actually done it wouldn't recommend it (same goes for most doctors I guess).
I am hoping my meditation can get me through this...

This is an interesting idea. Are there any examples of people keeping up such a sleep schedule for a prolonged amount of time? Wikipedia only mentions Buckminster Fuller. Out of 7 billion people more than 1 should have managed this if it is actually possible.


When I first starting reading the OP, Leonardo da Vinci immediately came to mind. I just Googled it to verify.

When I tried this, I read that coffee severely messed with sleeping schedules. YMMV.

I drink too much coffee to cut cold turkey. Let's see what it does. I am getting to sleep when I need to so it doesn't seem too bad.

i think this is an urban legend

besides wouldn't you need to sleep on job or be financial indebendent or work at home or something

maybe even have strange social habits to just go for a nap while everyone is awake and then be

quite alone during the nights where you will be sticking to your screen?Huh?

Relying on meditation to help you though self-induced torture is an abuse of meditation.

Interpreting your question as:
Wouldn't it be rather alone during the nights? Are you planning on spending those times behind the computer?

The answer is: There's a lot of things you can do with ~6 hours per night of being alone. You could do your job (depending on the job), you could go with friends to a bar, you could clean your room, and yes, you could spend that time on the computer, playing games or doing something constructive.

Yeah, as I said, I enjoy my own company. Loneliness isn't in my vocabulary. I will be working on a project that's been on my plate for the past month.

Relying on meditation to help you though self-induced torture is an abuse of meditation.

While I agree with your description of this as self-induced torture, I disagree that it is an abuse of meditation. All meditation is self-induced torture; it's how society punishes people, even the worst of them; you're doing a life sentence for being a brutal serial-rapist and your life already fucking sucks because you are in some scary maximum security federal penitentiary...they punish you by putting you in isolation, incidentally, a hugely popular form of meditation. 'Sit and think (or perhaps meditate?) about what you've done' is the only punishment that we really mete out as a society.

Now to digress, I think that any activity can be meditative, but it is unique to the individual and sort of stands off from 'meditation'. If I said I was going fly fishing, you would not perceive that as 'He's going to meditate'.

Just ~1 hour to go. Go do something where you have to move. Cleaning stuff works well, or maybe taking a long walk outside.

No offense but you are the epitome of emo fag in the sense that you blog about your every whimsical fart. You're worse than me sometimes.

If you get to tired make sure to get some real sleep.

I am dead serious, last thing we need is for you to die from exhaustion.

BTW: Atlas you need to get a girlfriend bro, I mean that shit with all seriousness.

EDIT: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1393166

"Exhaustion as precursor of cardiac death."

University of Limburg, Department of Medical Psychology,Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Abstract
Excess fatigue is the most prevalent precursor of sudden cardiac death. This state may reflect prolonged tension or heart disease. In order to test the first explanation a prospective study was done among 3365 males, aged 45-59 years. This cohort was followed during an average period of 9.5 years. Exhaustion was assessed by the statement: 'At the end of the day I am completely exhausted mentally and physically'. Among those free of coronary heart disease at the beginning, 69 subjects died because of myocardial infarction. Data were analysed using Cox's regression analysis. The results showed a highly significant interaction between duration of follow-up and exhaustion upon the risk of cardiac death. The hazard ratios for exhaustion were 8.96, 6.33, 4.47 and 3.16 for the first 10, 20, 30 and 40 months of follow-up respectively. Thereafter the association between exhaustion and cardiac death is no more significant. It is argued that exhaustion before cardiac death does not reflect manifest heart disease but that an interaction between prolonged tension and subclinical levels of ischaemia may increase the risk of cardiac death."

EDIT2: You are not a bad looking kid, get off the computer, and go talk to some people who don't have a stupid avatar next to their name. If you have ever listened to anyone in your life you will listen to me now and just shut off the monitor for a few weeks. Come back with a clear mind, and pwn these noobs.

EDIT3: Leave your mining rigs on Tongue.

Saw in one of your videos that your mom had you turn off the computer, so you reverted to reading Socrates. Here's a book I read twice that I think you would enjoy: http://www.amazon.com/Math-Gene-Mathematical-Thinking-Evolved/dp/0465016197
