Sleepless Nights

According to the article:

Scientists have found a way to turn on deep sleep at will using a machine that magnetically stimulates the brain.

A device worn on the head could in squeeze the benefit of eight hours' sleep into just two or three hours.

Wow, I would love that... there'd be so many more hours in the day. Unfortunately my guess is that health problems might arise from extended use though... of course the brain needs to sort through memories and do whatever it does when we sleep, but what about the rest of the body? Surely the rest of the body benefits from a good night's sleep as well, it's not just the brain that needs it. And what about dreaming? You gotta have those... actually, if scientists could develop a way to put you into sleep and then somehow get you lucid in a dream, that would be extremely addicting. It would probably give me great ideas for novels and music as well.
