SPAMAYL (Sleep Polyphasically As Much As You Like) is a fancy way of saying free-running sleep, or simply “take a 20 minute nap whenever you feel tired”. The adaptation for this is almost identical to Uberman (except one can take more naps), but afterward the schedule is more flexible than traditional Uberman.
During adaptation it is imperative that the nap times are kept rigid (using either the 3 or 4 hour rhythm) – the common mistake with SPAMAYL is that people think it is flexible during the adaptation. it is not. One can do a naptation to kickstart a SPAMAYL adaptation, but like Uberman there is ~2 weeks of impaired cognitive function while one gets used to the schedule.
The longest recorded SPAMAYL adaptee was Rasmus at Trypolyphasic who stayed with the schedule for over a year [Help elijah!]
Quite a few successful historical figures were purportedly Polyphasic sleepers. Such luminaries as Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Nikola Tesla, Napoleon, Winston Churchill, Thomas Jefferson and Leonardo DaVinci reportedly followed the fragmented schedule. Their achievements perpetuate the notion that there is a link between genius and efficient sleep. Why not give Polyphasic sleep a try, with our easy to implement Polyphasic Sleep Mastery guide?
