    I’d work in my sleep if all these conditions are met:

    1. It replaces my 9-5 completely.

    2. I am still fully rested after waking, or at the very least no meaningful difference to my sleep health.

    3. I wake up and don’t remember anything.

      Let’s be real, if capitalists could make you work in your sleep, that’s just going to be added to your existing work. There’s zero chance it replaces 9-5. The reality is that we’ve already made stunning leaps in automation since the industrial revolution, but none of that translated into people working less.

      Also, I’m not a neurologist, but I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that hijacking your sleep cycle that evolved over millions of years to allow your brain to rest in order to do work will likely have some spectacular negative consequences.

        It’s already been done with lighting and building. It used to be that you could only work when the seasons, weather, and sun allowed.

          Exactly, every time we have a technological advancement that can be used to exploit people further, that’s inevitably how it ends up being used.
