We are an active community with interest in polyphasic sleep and mostly residing in the Polyphasic Sleeping Discord server and the /r/polyphasic Subreddit. Ever since the Subreddit was created spanning 12 years back and now with the creation of the Discord in 2016, we’ve aimed to foster a more interactive discussion about polyphasic sleep and make it easier for newcomers to get their questions addressed. Over time, the discord community grew to today’s size of over 4000 members.
With the common goal of improving sleep quality and investigating various aspects of polyphasic sleep, many members have started to work on different projects including compiling information about adaptation viability of different schedules and advanced sleep tracking using commercial and home-built EEGs. One of these projects is also constructing and updating this site, Polyphasic.net, which is aimed to compile all currently available information about polyphasic sleep including information in otherwise paid resources, and the most recent findings of the community, which is not included in other sources about polyphasic sleep that are not updated regularly.
Polyphasic sleep is far from fully explored and with many unknowns, even this website and other projects are very much an ongoing effort. If you are interested in hanging out or even contributing to some of our work, definitely check out our Discord server and Subreddit.
This site is written by many contributors, out of which there are four main ones.
Crimsonflwr holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical engineering. He’s been interested in sleep even since he was young with and fascinated with pushing the body’s limits. In the past, he has attempted several polyphasic schedules, and after many tries, successfully adapted to Everyman 1. His polyphasic journey started once his daughter was born, which forced him to compromise with certain aspects of his life. This change eventually lead to him reducing the time he spent sleeping, and allowed him to gather first-hand experience of what being a polyphasic sleeper is like. Since joining the polyphasic community, Crimsonflwr has conducted the 2018 polyphasic survey, which helped improve the credibility of the science. He is also working on several other projects with the goal of answering some of the hardest questions regarding polyphasic sleep. He’s currently a Discord administrator, a moderator on r/polyphasic and one of the key people producing content on the Youtube channel. Crimsonflwr’s hobbies include homebrewing, gardening and cooking delicious meals.
GeneralNguyen – Currently a College Graduate whose major is Chemistry and minor is Pharmaceutical Sciences. He is a 5-year non-stop polyphasic sleeper since 19 and has adapted to a wide array of polyphasic schedules as well as proposing multiple alternative polyphasic sleep patterns that have been tested to work by at least a few community members. He is a succeeding moderator on the Polyphasic Subreddit since 2016 and the founder of the Polyphasic Discord community. His motto is, it’s not about how much one sleeps, but about sleeping the right amount. Like other members, he has been working to try convey the idea of using polyphasic sleeping as a means for long-term health maintenance and strategic napping rather than a tool to sleep as little as possible.
Jelte1234 started the journey into polyphasic sleep during his studies. From a background of sleep difficulties, Jelte1234 is fascinated by the mechanics of sleep, and the impact it has on the body and vice-versa. By combining research with Zeo readings, Jelte1234 discovered the mechanics behind the ProNap in 2017, which has been successfully implemented by several others since. Jelte1234 has been an administrator on the Discord for years, and one of the hosts on the Youtube channel. Hobbies include photography and 3d-design.
Aethermind runs a full massage practice in the San Francisco Bay Area, and is currently studying his Master’s in Psychology. After failing an Uberman attempt in 2008, he’s been successfully polyphasic for various periods since 2016. Experimental attempts mostly failed, but he did successfully adapt to SEVAMAYL three times over the years. He has used different polyphasic schedules to support different lifestyles, including doubling income into six figures, sleeping in a car by choice, attaining nearly his ideal body, building relationships, and having self-care and leisure time even while working as much as 70+ hours a week for months. He’s gladly contributed as a Discord moderator and an experiential knowledge generator for this online polyphasic community.
