Now “Hopping Man” would just have been too ridiculous, even though I prefer not to take this too serious. It shall be also fun after all.
Flexman is a somewhat different category than the other schedules. It’s more kind of a “meta”-schedule with the explicit goal of sustainability and compatibility to a more “regular life style”.
One thing I observed during the last weeks is that I can switch between monophasic and polyphasic sleeping without any problem. The ability to “nap” is there. And also to sleep a full night.
Now, I did not really “adapt” to any pattern so far, but I wonder if it would not be possible to specifically train the ability to “hop” from polyphasic to monophasic and back at will.
Looking back at my just finished attempt at everyman3 (sleeping 3 hours per night and
taking three 20 minutes naps a day), I am still astonished how very easy and smooth I adapted to this schedule. I expected (for good reasons) at least frequent periods of heavy drowsiness and sleep deprivation. Come on: I only slept for 4 hours each day.
But no: I tracked every sleeping and waking hour and there definitly was almost no sleep deprivation at all. Now I am specualting if this has something to do with the uberman experiment I did three weeks earlier.
Can this be a kind of training effect?
