I myself find it a lot easier working through the night for what ever reason – it’s currently 3:30AM here in the UK and I’ve been working since about 11am / 12am

Anyone else out there do the same?

That’s what I’m finding I do sleep until midday and start work from there – I try to do my meals around that so breakfast about a 1pm – lunch at around 7 and dinner about 12.

However living with my girlfriend it means that she wants dinner at about 5 and it messes me up!

Hehe, we all come out at night. Well i usually work till like 2-3 am because i have a fulltime job from 8am-5pm then i come home to my wife and 2 kids so i work on my TF items after everyone is gone to sleep.

So i get about 4-5 hours of sleep a day which i got used to after doing this for awhile.

Cheers

Lester

Sometimes I stay up so late, it feels like I’ve entered another time/space continuum. :)

Indeed, but in all seriousness I believe there is some theory behind this. You see the mind thinks in linear terms ie past / present / future.. but the truth is, only the present moment exists – the past is a memory and the future is just imagination, none of which are real in the present, we just make them feel real by thinking about it. But something interesting happens when you go through sleep deprivation. Our sense of time begins to slow down, and your awareness of the present moment becomes intensified, so you’ll begin to feel a sense of timelessness. Those thoughts of past / future no longer have a hold on you, as you’re not able to focus on thoughts long enough, and only what you observe in the present moment is what you’re able to consciously focus on. I find this is where I’m most creative, because you’re not worried about time at all, just the task at hand. And if you really think about it, the concept of time is just a man made idea – we know a clock moves, because we remembered the time was something else before the last time we checked, but again that’s just a memory in our mind. The only thing that is real, is the present moment, which is forever – everything else is just thoughts. We only exist in the present, we don’t exist in thoughts, or in the past or in the future. So we literally can bend space/time by only focusing on our awareness of the present moment and not feeling the pull of the illusion of time.

Perfectly put. There’s nothing like sleep deprivation to break down the illusions and launch one into far more interesting delusions :))
