• If you lived in total darkness, your body would
eventually adjust to a 48-hour day, meaning
you'd stay awake for 36 hours and sleep for
12 hours. Researchers also discovered that
you would experience terrifying
"hallucinations" because your brain isn't used
to the lack of objects you'd normally see in
light, so it creates it's own.

    • also your body by skipping a night of sleep, will try to force you to sleep, however skipping nights after that will seem easy since your body senses you cant sleep because theres danger nearby giving you energy to go for days. your body will deem shutting your organs a good idea than getting kiIIed

    • Terrifying is not a very good term to use because if that was true we would all be adjusted to it and that would be our “normal”. Our brains would eventually see those hallucinations as harmless and just a trick of perception, such as how you always are looking at your nose subconsciously
