      60 Hours Sleep Deprived WILD?

      I've been wanting to do a sleep deprivation experiment for a while.

      Sleep deprivation experiment.
      The point of this experiment is to test the effects of sleep deprivation (60 hours) on the circadian rhythm of sleep. We will also be testing motor function, word comprehension, logic, balance, and we want to see when hallucinations come, how strong they will be, and how they will affect me.
      This experiment will take place from March 28th at 6 AM, to March 30th at 6 PM.
      We will document this experiment with video, graphs, and a power point presentation.

      Procedure
      We will be testing motor function with a basic intoxication test, word comprehension with a crossword puzzle and reading from a book, logic with math and simple riddles, and balance with Wii Fit.
      The first test will be the constant. It will be done on March 28th at 6 PM. All tests after that will be done every 6 hours.

      Rules
      The basic rules are:
      1. I will attempt to not sleep whatsoever for 60 hours. If I fall asleep the test will end.

      2. If it affects me medically I must opt out immediately.

      3. I will test every 6 hours.

      After all of this is complete I'm going to just lie down and stay as aware as possible and see if I can wild that way.
      What are your thoughts?

      60 hours? Man that's a lot, I can barely hold my eyes open after 30ish. I'll be interested to see the final results

      Huh, good luck with that. Though from my own experiences it's actually harder to stay conscious enough under long sleep deprivation to do WILD, max i have tried was after 48 hours, fallen into unconscious sleep almost immediately. Even then you still have chance to get random WILD due to changed awareness, so might be still worth trying.

      Depriving yourself of sleep for that long might give you a lot of very vivid nightmares.

      when i was younger i used to stay up alot the longest i went was 3 almost 4 days lol. ya im never doing that again it was not very pleasent. any way on the dream and wild part you are really going to have to try hard to stay aware when you try to wild. after staying up that long once your head hits that pellow youll probly be out within 10 or 20 seconds. on the plus side you will probly have some really vivid dreams but wont remember any untill after maybe 4 to 6 hours of sleep you might get lucky and get one before that, though i would suggest sleeping for about 12 hours if you can for the best dream results. then you can try to do an RC in a vivid dream to get lucid. hope that helps and good luck on all that.

      Checker666 is right, you'll go to sleep unconsciously and wake up the next morning with probably wierd dreams that you can't remember because your brain will need alot of sleep and it'll just give you random dreams.

      I'm a gamer and when I was around 13-14 years old I used to stay up all night and the next day, after 34 hours your body will feel really week you'll have problems standing up, your eyes will close by themselves, you might get a few hallucination but they won't be enlightful, and you won't learn anything from them because your brain just keeps telling you that you need some sleep.

      if you stand up you'll be dazzed and confused
      and if you lay down, instant sleep

      During basic training when we did our FTX (field training exercise) where you are in the field for a week, I got an average of 3 hours of sleep per night, and I did lots of physical activity each day with very little food. Going off that experience, I can tell you that what happened was any time I was not actually concentrating on something actively or I was in the prone position (even during training during the day) I would start to microsleep. Or maybe it wasn't microsleep, because I realized it was going on. As soon as I would close my eyes I would start to have erratic thought patterns that involved people other than myself talking and I "knew" of the events taking place in this kind of psuedodream that was forming, a lot like how you just "know" things in a dream from delirium. Then I would see vivid pictures of the dream forming, but I never fully went unconscious because if someone were to walk past me or something in the outside world demanded my attention I would snap out of it. Sometimes this would happen with my eyes open as well. The thing about this is, I would simultaneously know it's going on but at the same time be unable to actually control it other than snap out of it. My guess is if you tried to WILD you would most likely, as checker666 said, just fall into unconscious sleep. Your mind would probably fall into delirium the moment you started dreaming or sleeping, making it that much harder to actually realize you are dreaming. Even if you succeeded, it would probably be like a few of the times I realized I was dreaming yet somehow did not gain lucidity... I just said "oh I'm dreaming" and then the dream continued on as normal, lol.

      The thing you just described happens to me often if I wake up a lot through the night. I have been learning to become lucid from it, but it is weird. I know I am dreaming, but that doesn't seem to matter. If I become lucid from it I am like "wait! Wait! You know this is a dream!" And I stop and stabilize. This is only if I am well rested though.

      @learningtold
      WILD is easier if your mind is awake and your body tired. If you stay awake for 60 hours, you will be tired, and you will have adrenaline in you. Making your body awake and your mind asleep. This is why you will lose consciousness before your body falls asleep.

      If you do something like work out it makes your mind more active and your body more asleep. It will be easier for you than this and actually be effective.

      If you insist on doing this, I must ask you to not operate cars after the first 24 hours. At that point your reaction time is almost worse than drunk driving. After 48 hours it is worse.
