Is sleep warm up for death?
We spend a third of our lives engaging in a state of altered consciousness and minimized physical activity. We delve into the depth of the unconscious only to wake up and question its meaning.
We sleep because we need to.
Senescence drives our programmed deterioration to the impending end. When electrical pulses no longer reach the brain and cognitive function is lost, we enter an uncharted territory.
We die because we must.
Sleep and death are the inevitable unknown.
