|Introduction to Stages of Sleep
Sleep is really good for you. You should do it, pretty much every night. How much do you really know about sleep? Probably as much as you'll ever need to know - but that's just unacceptable. How many cocktail parties have you been to where the punchbowl conversation included,
"Yes, I do sleep often. I really wish I knew if reptiles, birds, and other non-mammals did the same. If only there was someone to tell us that they'd be social heroes!"
Exactly! Every party you've ever been to! So here is your chance to possess an irresponsibly large amount of knowledge on the sleep process. You can't tell me you haven't always wanted to be unreasonably informed. Be the envy of friends and colleagues. If you read on carefully, you might just learn how to be a little better rested every night by understanding more about yourself. What if, one morning, you have a brilliant idea for a million dollar invention that makes you rich that you think of at 8:00 AM in the morning - a time you'd never have been awake at if you hadn't read our "Physiology of Sleep" section. Then you'll patent your invention, but it will be stolen by a corporate spy who will claim credit for your invention and make millions. You'll be a broken person, waiting tables to make ends meet until a TV station buys your sob story for a made-for-TV movie and you'll be a famous personality. You'll use your newfound fame to create a giant advertising agency with the economic power to control the world's finances - and all because you read up on how to sleep. No, no, it's quite alright. You're welcome. Just make your thanks payable to "Dreams: What Do They Mean To You?" via highly suspicious Cayman Islands checking account.
