    WTF?

    Why get rid of the need for rest?

    There is more to life than increasing productivity. We seem to have lost sight that life is for living. :facepalm2:

    Honestly I think this is in the realms of science fiction. Sleep is way too important to way too many crucial functions to think we could ever adequately replace it. Perhaps reduce the amount we need by finding ways to ensure the sleep we do get is of higher quality, but not eliminate it.

    No, I don't think that science is able to manipulate the biologic clock of humans in that way that sleep becomes irrelevant.

    Hello no. Sleep is the only time I'm not plagued with worries.
