I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on a possible "cure" for sleep - a
drug or procedure which will eliminate the need to lay still with your eyes
closed for 8 unproductive hours a day.
As far as I know, scientists know very little about sleep. We know that REM sleep is required for mental well being. We know that the body is fine without sleep but the brain is not, so it's the brain that the attack should be centered on. The goal would be to understand exactly how sleep effects the brain, physically, and to replicate these physical changes with a device, or pill, that works in less then 8 hours.
