Sleep is death without the responsibility but is sleep death or at least how near to death is sleep What is the point in sleep What have we achieved after lying still for eight hours Is it an escape Does sleep wrap you up in a little cocoon of well being which nothing can penetrate Or is sleep a little taste of death Is that why sleep can sometimes be such a terrifying thing Are dreams in a way our heaven and hell Some dreams give a sense of happiness and contentment some just confuse and some terrify to the point anything seems better than sleep But some people find sleep an escape from what is in the world and escape from the stress and strain of life This was illustrated when Sir Philip Sidney spoke of sleep as The poor mans wealth the prisoners release The indifferent judge between the high and low It is true that in sleep as in death we are all equal No one can sleep a better or more fulfilling sleep just because he has more money or power it is needed by everyone alike and no-one can escape its necessity Just in the same way no one can escape the inevitability of death Both are something uniting and universal which everybody has the right to and can benefit from nightly We can survive a shorter length of time without sleep than without food or water but thankfully sleep is free and easy to come by making it a daily escape available to every human Without sleep humans cannot function it is one of the necessities of our existence If we cannot sleep it can make our life a living hell Every mother or father woken up nightly by a crying baby will tell you the devastating effect this has on their life Broken sleep makes us tired irritable unmotivated and unable to function normally Torturers often
