“Touches of creative genius are simply exaggerated versions of what happens when our brains remove the clutter every night. With only important information left, the mind may then be free to make associations that it couldn’t see before.”
David K. Randall, Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep

“Though midday naps are most closely linked with Spain and other Latin cultures, they were once popular throughout Europe, Africa, and Asia. Even today, most state-owned firms in China give their workers two hours for lunch. The first is used for eating and the second, for sleeping.”
David K. Randall, Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep

“If we spend little time in REM sleep one night, our brain will compensate by prolonging that stage of sleep the next night. It doesn’t take a huge leap to assume that the brain considers this time important.”
David K. Randall, Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep
