In one of my psilocybin induced epiphanies back in college....staring into the Mississippi pines with dilated pupils as the sun rose...it occured to me that if I could just stay awake all the time I could figure everything out. I think I was hugging a tree at the time. I'm not sure if it was the tree that told me this, but it occured to me how much we forget when we have to go to sleep every night and wake up the next day. If we could just run continuously, we could accumulate and process information so much better.
It looks like I may get to test that theory:
Snorting a Brain Chemical Could Replace Sleep
I'm all for it. I'm ready to get a carbon fiber backbone, too. As a matter of fact, just cut my head off and put it on a robot body. I'm not scared of technology, I'm just scared we won't develop it fast enough to go cyborg before I die.
No sleep is a great start.
