WiFi and now the latest 5G being ramped up as cool, is causing havoc on the human brain and central nervous system. It's anything "but" natural to exist in this type of environment. We'd all have to be part Cyborg for it not to affect us.

Yes, Humans are some incredible creatures - very prone - super prone - to generalizing from a present situation or context to being something that is descriptive of all human beings.

In general, since the invention and wholesale erection of an electrical grid, we modern humans are strangely - and perhaps, suboptimally - out of sync with natures rhythms - the most basic of which is the day-night cycle.

Subatomically speaking, you are correct.

The solution is there. It's being purposely withheld from implementation.

Nice thread, Ekirch's book is a fascinating and groundbreaking work on the subject.

If thats all I slept, 4 hrs a day I'd either be Japanese or half dead from lack of sleep.

Good to hear the. I love to camp. It resets your body clock so you can function normally. If I had the option, I'd do it twice a month.

I needed to know more when I woke up in the middle of the night and I started to research the sleeping patterns of various native people.

It leads me to a debunking article and a conclusion that there is no such pattern among natives so there's no reason for it in the our pre-industrial past either.

From many nights spent outdoor all I can say is that it rather sucks and I need to sleep during the next day. The sleep is disturbed by cold every couple of hours and the toxic fumes from the fireplace give me bad hangovers. It can be as bad as smoking a hundred of cigs. The woods, the stars above, fireplace... more REM and remembered dreams can be romantic and spiritual but such a survival life was/is shortening a life span in the first place IMO.

I will embrace this 12 hour sleep cycle.
For nature.
For humanity.

Its the same way many mammal species across the world sleep.


Yup. Like clockwork my cat gets up in the middle of the night, take an incredibly smelly poop, eats, explores, runs across our bed a few times to make sure we wake up and can smell her poop, then saunters off back to bed.

I have adapted to a a two session sleep, mainly because my dog likes to go out at 2:00AM. Not really his fault, since I was quite a night owl when the dog was young. I always let him out before I went to bed. He resists change.
