The abolition of sleep is an idea advocated by some transhumanists such as Zoltan Istvan[1] and Marcelo Rinesi.[2]

In fiction

  • The X-Files featured an episode where ex-marines had had experimental neurosurgery to remove their need to sleep. This in turn caused serious side effects the protagonists had to investigate.[3]
  • In the webpage Orion's Arm, this condition is called 'asomnia'.
  • In the Dr Who episode "Sleep No More", a technology called Morpheus replaces sleep. [4]
