Engaging synthesis of disciplines generating new theory evidence-based
for the transition of sleep modes from formative to repair at age 2.5
years. Also discusses scaling (large -v- small animals).

Not a mention as far as I can see of dreaming which seems to be a
byproduct of downtime for repairs and maintenance.


‘That we come to this earth to live is untrue. We come but to sleep,
to dream.’
– Aztec poem
