I don't know if I should have put it here or somewhere else, since it doesn't relate to me, but I am interested in the case of Al Herpin and it would be nice for the rest of you to talk about it and share what you think.

Personally, I find it so sad that he never knew what it was to dream, to take a break from life and get away for a few hours... oh, he was a very 24/7 person :(

The salient word there is 'claimed.' I am certain that today Herpin would be debunked. I watched a documentary once, about a sleep clinic. People who were positive that they never slept a wink were filmed, and though their sleep was restless, yep, they were snoring away. :)

I don't need normal sleep; that is, I never get tired, and can stay up for two or three nights with no problem. But I do sleep, because I like my trips to other worlds. I can remember what it was like - just about - to feel sleepy, but I no longer have a yawn reflex, etc. (I have tried; I can't yawn).

On earth, humans generally do need sleep. But in the spirit worlds, people don't need sleep. Ever see an angel yawning? :)

This would put you at risk for cardiac disorder.

I tend to agree with

Regarding not sleeping, one time when I was 16 and camping out with friends, we thought it would be fun and cool to stay up all night.( Up until then, I slept all night normally.)

So, we did.... and besides fatigue the following day, I got a headache. This might not seem earthshaking, but I had never experienced a headache in my life until then. After that, I would get headaches from time to time when stressed.

I think that I lost something that night.
