We measure it with time, EEG, time and hormone studies, but what is it all about? Lying unconscious for hours in the hope that we wake up. Surely if it was just about resting muscles we could lie there looking at the ceiling.
"When asked, after 50 years of research, what he knew about the reason people sleep, William Dement, founder of Stanford University's Sleep Research Center, answered, "As far as I know, the only reason we need to sleep that is really, really solid is because we get sleepy."
We all sleep but to take lying unconscious for hours as natural is odd.
In a world where evolutionists argue for the survival of the fittest why hasnt sleep been eradicated, as being unconscious in nature leads to vulnerability of attack by predators?
It is surprising that scientists still have not got a clue as to why all animals have to sleep.
