Maybe most of us follow a similar path...from a specific problem to more general understanding. Different events but the same truths.
I am struck by the role of sleep emphasized in this article.
I think I am the world's champion insomniac. I learned that there was a lot going on at night when I was in my teens, and I stayed up for the excitement, and all I could get done in a longer day. Wakefulness rapidly became a habit.
Did you keep regular sleep hours through your life so far? If so, I admire you no end!
Tesla predicted that human life would change with the coming of electricity. We take it for granted that we 'should' stay up after dark, because electric lights turn night into 'day'.
Wouldn't it be amazing if some (or more) of our health problems come entirely from our mistaken belief that we don't need to go to sleep when the sun goes down?
Another point...many people in this world don't (or didn't) have electric light after sunset. Firelight, perhaps, and candles of one kind or another.
Maybe their health functions in a different way than ours. Maybe we don't understand them very well...and they don't understand us.
Uh...it is just past 7:30 p.m. here right now. The sun has been down for an hour and a half, yet here I am typing away on an electronic machine! I have to think this one out...
