Script Details

A short, informative, teaser as an introduction to our adult education class about sleep.  

We all do it.

In fact, the average person will spend close to 30 years of his or her life doing it!

For most of us, sleep is just a taken-for-granted part of the day.

But what do we really know about it?

Scientists have explored the question of why we sleep from many angles.

They’ve studied what happens when humans and different animal species are deprived of sleep.

They’ve looked at sleep patterns in a variety of organisms to see if similarities or differences might reveal something about sleep's functions.

Yet, despite decades of research, the question of why we sleep remains a mystery.

As one researcher put it, “After fifty years of experimenting, the only solid reason we can come up with for why we need to sleep, is because we get sleepy!”

Why are we designed to spend so much of our lives in “hibernate” mode, when there is so much for us to do and so much for us to accomplish?

Is sleep just an enormous waste of time?
