Hey. Atlas. You fail? Waiting for that nap 10 or whatever you're on update. (I bet he totally crashed).

I did this for a few weeks last year.

But I stopped it because there is no suitable alarm clock for this using the computer is annoying I tried the phone calender with periodic entries but that didn't work either not loud enough. 

I would be willing to give it another try if you know of a convenient solution Wink

A tiny kitchen timer has worked for me.

I think you spoke too soon about the kitchen timer being effective then

You know for kitchen timers you're supposed to twist them all the way, and then twist them back to the time you want? Twisting them all the way charges the spring used for ringing.


…Don't look at me like that! Most people I talked to actually didn't know this!

Yeah, I am now on a digital timer. Also, I finished taking my first nap at 2PM.

I broke schedule when I tried to nap at 2AM and wokeup at 12PM. : \

Go figure, nobody reads the basic instructions on kitchen timers. They usually tell you to turn it past 10 minutes and then move it from there for this reason.

Alpha, I suggest you find a CVS somewhere nearby (or Wal-Mart if they have one) and use their blood pressure machine. Get a base reading. If you continue this experiment, check it again in a few days to make sure you're not putting your body under too much stress. Even if you feel fine, that may give you a warning before your body gives you a more serious one by itself.

You mentioned caffeine, in you video.
Do not do it, caffeine has a half life of 6 hours so you cannot go to sleep in Uberman if you have caffeine in your system.

IDK if you have researched this but polyphasic sleep is based on the assumption that all you need to be rested are a number of rem cycles.
The most sophisticated way would be to count them with a device (like a sleep mask with infrared sensors or something) but it works also if you sleep for the scheduled time. You have to fall into rem sleep immediately and if you don't the nap will not make you rested.

One way would be that you could have entered rem sleep is that you don't immediately recall lying down (like in regular sleep) or the way to tell for certain is if you had dreams. Dreams and polyphasic sleep go well together and in the time I established my schedule I had extremely vivid dreams to the point of being Lucid Dreams. At the height of the experiment I had a dream every cycle it was like living a second lifetime, but it gets you detached from "regular people"  pretty quick which is part of the reason I quit.
Take care, done become presumptions once you are there....

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

There are people with a genetic mutation that allows them to function just fine on like, 3-4 hours of sleep. I'll try and find some more information on it. I sure wish I had it...

There is more than that, the basis of assumption is that you only have a few rem phases in a regular 8h sleep. The goal with polyphonic sleep is to trick the brain to go into rem immediately because it "knows" you only will get a short time.
The wikipedia article is full of opportunity trolls, alas "skeptic" references which like to confuse the isse. It's about rem phases, not the amount of time you nap studys linked there are made by the US military to get train their troops for such a situation.

Ironically they do not utilize the phenomena of short rem phases.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

IIRC I've seen a research where it turned out polyphasic sleepers actually did a very fast cycle through all the phases, instead of doing just REM sleep as they expected. Don't know for sure though.

I did it for half a year. YMMV

I am sure that one day drugs will be developed that replace our need for sleep. Then we will compete with each other for the right to work 16 hour days for half the wage rate.

There's a hormone called Melatonin which (for most people) makes you feel sleepy and makes you sleep deeper, which means you need less sleep. Something in the order of 7 hours instead of 8. It's freely available in the US. In Europe the dosage you can get over the counter is restricted in some countries.

You should really just sleep like a normal human being instead of trying to fuck up your body because the internet told you it would make you an "uberman".
