In a recent IEET poll, 50% of responders claimed that if they had the ability to function optimally without sleep, they would abandon repose altogether.
Additionally, 15.8% said that they would opt for slumbering only 1-2 hours per day, and 16.9% chose to be somnambulant a mere 3-4 hours.
A “lazy” 4% wanted sack-time of 5-6 hours nightly, and an additional 13.5% voted to “not change my sleep quantity.”
Does this poll indicate that IEET readers are extremely time-strapped, with myriad projects we wish to complete? Are we all insomniacs, seeking techno-relief? Is sleep viewed as an obstacle to progress, a Luddite hobby, not fit for serious transhumanists?
