This is an interesting thread. I'm still trying to work my way through all 42 pages, but I wanted to get my thoughts out there.
For the last month to six weeks, my sleep patterns have gone all to hell. I've always suffered from some degree of insomnia, but never to this extent. If I'm lucky I finally fall asleep around 5 or 6 in the morning. I work odd hours, so sometimes this doesn't affect me too much, but often I have to face a 12 hour workday on 3 hours of sleep. You'd think after working for 12 hours on next to no sleep I'd be exhausted, but I'm wide awake and continue my cycle of staring at the clock until 5am.
As I'm awake at these odd hours I wonder why I can't freaking sleep, but I have this feeling that I don't want to go to sleep because I'll miss something important. Like something monumental will happen or the whole world will change while I sleep. The feeling passes once the sky starts to lighten and I can finally sleep. I don't know how else to explain it. It feels like the air right before a big thunderstorm rolls through, heavy and uncertain.
It's the strangest feeling I've ever experienced. Something just doesn't feel right. No, that's not it; something feels fundamentally wrong, and whatever's wrong I really don't want to sleep through it.
Hopefully this is the right thread to post this in. I saw some others discussing sleep problems and it seemed like it would fit...

I agree whitewave and that is why I have not posted lately. There are certain posters here who have a clear intention to derail the thread with psychological/philosophical meanderings/excercises.The answer to this issue can be found in quantum mechanics; specifically the MWI and quantum deviation; that is not conjecture and each has substantiation in in real-world physics experiments. So it isn't "all" theory.
