Can we safely substitute sleep with food?

    I eat my evening meal at night and feel too energized at night to sleep. If I stay up and do other shit to keep myself occupied besides staring at a ceiling or something like that, will I spontaneously fall asleep at the wheel on my way to the market the next day even though I feel fine? I worry about this because that's what all the papers say. But I can stay up 40 hours easily without crashing feeling wide awake. I'm just worried it's not healthy. I think it has something to do with the antipsychotic I take. Please help, I just want to be safe.

    Well yeah there are metabolic processes that only happen during sleep. You cant survive that way forever, and even in the shortterm its not optimal.

    there have been documented cases of people who only need to sleep very little if at all.

    I wonder how that impacts them in the long-term though; over the course of their life their brain would be running at full load a good 30% more than anyone else

    but am I just going to pass out at the wheel? I don't think my body is doing anything metabolically different during the rest periods i take between my more remarkable sleep periods I get every 36-40 hours than if I were to stay awake.
