I honestly believe its because the amount of oxygen (energy to fuel to brain) we inhale is not enough to keep us operating for more than 12+ hours because of the vast amount of functions the brain performs.

But when we are sleeping, a lot of these functions stop and the brain becomes a lot less taxed, focusing on only a select few processes to run, and therefore the oxygen intake becomes beneficial to the brain and other systems, which is why we often feel better after resting or having a good sleep.
User avatar #135 to #102 - mistercookie (09/13/2013) [-]
Just pointing out 2 things to you that you might not know.

The first is that when we sleep the brain goes into overdrive. The brain activity during sleep is a lot greater than while we are awake. This is due to the brain having to sort and process all of the information we gathered while being awake. That's probably one of the reasons why when we get less sleep we also get a reduced memory. Because the brain just cant process the information while being awake, and when all the information of previous days add up without giving the brain enough time to sort it the brain will then get a reduced memory span. In addition to loads of other negative things, so live long, sleep long.

2nd thing is that if it were the case that we used more oxygen than we were able to draw in from breathing, why is it that we only use about 30% of the oxygen we inhaled. We exhale about 70 % of the oxygen we inhaled. If it were so that we didn't get enough oxygen from the air, we probably would have evolved to be able to use more of the oxygen we breathe in. This is also why mouth-to-mouth works. Since the largest part of what we breathe out is oxygen.

One thing that is pretty solid. Not really really solid, but pretty solid about one of the reasons we sleep is simply to pass time. If you think from a stone age perspective. What would humans do when night arrived? We wouldn't be able to do **** , since we can't see much. Therefore we sleep to make it day again. This theory also includes sleeping patterns for other animals and why they sleep as much as they do, but i don't remember the details. Google it if you are interested.

tl;dr: We breathe out 70 % of oxygen we breathe in, so no shortage of oxygen and brain goes into warpdrive when we sleep, it doesn't slow down.

The most fleshed out answer i have found is that our brain sorts all the impressions and thoughts and memories we've gotten. A constant bombardment of sensations would probably be quite weary

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

Japanese people are really serious about honour and hard working and **** though. Sounds nice to us, because we weren't brought up in a country so ******* serious about honour and life meaning, that they gutted themselves for spilling a ******* drink or something.
#293 to #277 - lolollo (09/14/2013) [-]
It's also because our culture is so engrained with individualized confidence, and vengeance. We don't give a **** if you think us worthless and horrible, so long as we have the ability to put bleach in your gastank, we'll sleep like a baby coked up on Nyquil each night.

You don't want to fire me so I don't get the full benefits?

**** it! Bring it on! Let's go! I got time for career chicken! Even if you take me down, you'll regret ever starting the confrontation! I may lose, but you'll be the one with a dildo superglued to your headlights!

Japanese actually have a sense of honour and dignity.

Apparently that doesn't include their japanese bosses.

Forcing someone to quit just so you don't pay him the full benefits they deserve doesn't sound very honored.
User avatar #190 to #137 - kombee (09/13/2013) [-]
Very true however when a boss banishes from real work only reson being that they want to fire you, you should probably either quit for good (if possible) measure or reap the benefits. Honour and dignity starts with yourself and is not defined by how your boss sees you.
User avatar #272 to #137 - imashitbricks (09/13/2013) [-]
Yeah, because if you were getting paid to do nothing you'd TOTALLY quit because your honor and dignity.

There are an unlimited number of idiot burglar stories.
2007 Darwin Award Nominee: Burglar attempts to break into handicapped man's house. He finds the man in his bed and attempts to attack him with his fists. (he didn't bring a weapon) The handicapped man hit him in the balls with his crutches, ripping them off. The nutless burglar jumps out the window and passes out from blood loss in the street. When he was resuscitated he immediately began screaming "give me my balls back". The doctors were unable to reattach his balls.

1997 Darwin Award Nominee: Canadian burglar attempt to break into 12th floor apartment by scaling the building side to climb in through the balcony. Upon reaching the balcony he saw that the apartment was occupied. The tenants yelled at him and he was so startled that he fell off the balcony to his death.

It's been a dilemma in psychology and biology for quite a while now. We've always wondered why we sleep. It just happens because we're tired. That's the most logical explanation.
#264 to #256 - cinematicbrix (09/13/2013) [-]
Yea right, and the most logical explanation to why we need food is because we're hungry.   
   
Wrong. We need food, mineral and vitamins to get energy for our body and organs to work.

Well, one theory that has emerged in recent years is that sleep helps us to process and consolidate new memories. Our memory system is a psychological wonder, and several studies have suggested that sleep provides some behind-the-scenes maintenance.   
   
Sleep aids our memories by refreshing and reorganising them without interfering with our waking thoughts. Evidence comes from several studies using methods that record the brain directly. For instance, when rats were trained to find their way around a maze, their brains produced the same activity patterns during sleep as when they had carried out the task – suggesting that the brain was reconstructing the experience.   
   
A rest might also help ease bad experiences. A study published in 2011 has posed the intriguing suggestion that the brain might also deal with the memory of unpleasant or traumatic events during sleep .   
   
Dreams may also be a product of our memories randomly activating so as to keep them fresh, and of the mind seeking connections between all the things we have recently experienced. This could also explain why hallucinations accompany sleep deprivation. Without the opportunity to reorganise our memories during sleep, dreams intrude into our waking lives, causing difficulty in distinguishing our inner lives from reality.   
   
I quote biologist David Prober: “Saying that we sleep because we’re tired is like saying we eat because we’re hungry, That doesn’t explain why it’s better to eat some foods rather than others and what those different kinds of foods do for us".

Alright, you've made your point.   
   
We know less about the brain than outer space, so anything's plausible. I feel that there are a number of reasons, memories being one of the more prominent. However, there doesn't seem to be one singular meaning behind sleeping. I wouldn't relegate it to being only about memories, but that's a good start.   
   
For now, though, the general public and those not interested in biology can simply agree that we need sleep. Plain and simple. Those who are interested in it should pursue the meaning in order to change that, but for now I'm just going with what I know.

Fizzor is right, though there are probably a few lazy people, Japanese culture really revolves around dedicated work and fulfillment. Taking that away from them is like taking away purpose.
#113 to #83 - fizzor (09/13/2013) [-]
That's not really how it works for japanese people, though. They seriously love working, and the reason they eventually get depressed enough to quit the job is because of those menial or useless tasks in which they can't bring out their full potential.
