For a long time now, I have thought that I solved many of my problems during sleep and during college I firmly held the theory that extra sleep the night before a test was more valuable to me getting a good score than was extra study time. Now proof is coming out that my theory wasn’t based just on laziness, but on facts.
During REM sleep, humans break down their memories and analyze them and put them together in different ways to help us gain a better understanding of the big picture. When I am facing an especially difficult problem, I go to sleep and by morning I have several very good solutions. It’s amazing. And now I can show the science behind why it is true and disprove you superstitious folk who insist that anything you don’t understand was done by a god.
