Circadian rhythms & then some


Man's a diurnal creature, a being who, way back when, worked by day and slept by night, something not being done now as we move further into the age of never ending light, where the notion of adhering to circadian rhythms has gone the way of the dodo with potentially catastrophic results if the findings of one researcher proves to be true.



Where it gets interesting



Maybe this is why the world seems to be so chaotic, so crazed, so over stressed and so amped. Makes sense to me as yours truly now goes to bed earlier, with no light, no sound, just darkness, similar to how man did it back in the day.



Darkness, Darkness
Be my pillow
Take my hand
And let me sleep
In the coolness of your shadow
In the silence of your deep

Darkness, Darkness
Hide my yearning
For the things I cannot be
Keep my mind from constant turning
Toward the things I cannot see now
Things I cannot see now
Things I cannot see

Darkness, darkness,
Long and lonesome,
Ease the day that brings me pain.
I have felt the edge of sadness,
I have known the depth of fear.
Darkness, darkness, be my blanket,
Cover me with the endless night,
Take away, take away the pain of knowing,
Fill the emptiness of right now,
Emptiness of right now, now, now
Emptiness of ri-ight now.

Darkness, darkness, be my pillow,
Take my hand, and let me sleep.
In the coolness of your shadow,
In the silence, the silence of your deep.
Darkness, darkness, be my blanket,
Cover me with the endless night,
Take away, take away the pain of knowing
Fill the emptiness of right now,
Emptiness of right now now now
Emptiness of right....
Oh yeah Oh yeah
Emptiness, emptiness
Oh yeah  - Jesse Colin Young, The Youngbloods
