@peractopaulo, the one trick I found to be absolutely essential to execute polyphasic – a 10-megaton bomb equivalent sounding alarm for when you start out and you need to set it at the other side of the room.

When I was doing it, what would happen is I would set my alarm full blast but it was right next to my bed. I would “sleep walk” and turn it off (a hard thing to do, honestly) and fall back asleep – without being conscious of it at all!

When I had to get up to turn it off did I only start making strides forward. Then my break ended and I was fucked up for a week. Walking zombie, confused why I existed. Earth became weird. Making breakfast was like running a gauntlet. Shit got messed!

Back to normal for me :) If I installed a bed in my lab I would definitely be back on the polyphasic boat!
