Welcome to Non24.Com!

Welcome to Non24.Com!

The main (but not exclusive) theme of this website is Non-24-Hour Sleep-Wake Disorder and other circadian rhythm sleep disorders.

If those don't topics interest you, though, not to worry - plenty of other topics are welcome here too. (More on that below, after some other stuff about Non-24, etc.)

Even if you have no interest whatsoever in sleep issues, you are welcome here, and you might find something interesting here!

For now, the most interesting thing here (other than this blog post) is probably the Non24.Com Forum.

The overall goal of this website is to help everyone, both with or without sleep issues, to achieve more happiness, prosperity, freedom, and control over our own lives and schedules.

According to this web page, at least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day ($3650 per year).

But even many people who are fortunate enough to be in the top 20% are financially oppressed wage slaves, who feel they have (and might in fact have) no better choice than to slave away at jobs they hate, locked into routines they can scarcely endure, and living paycheck to paycheck.

No one, whether they're disabled or not, should be forced or pressured to live in such an oppressive way.

Of course, sleep issues definitely make it quite a lot more difficult (or even impossible) to conform to the financially oppressive system most of the world is victimized by.

Being unable to cope as well as the average person with oppression is definitely a curse in many ways. But, on other hand, there's a lot of truth in this Krishnamurti quote:

"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."

Sleep issues can leave a person with almost no choice but to rebel against the financial oppression nearly everyone is faced with - even if one desperately wishes to be able to conform as well as anyone else.

So, if it's healthier to resist oppression than to go along with it - then, we who have sleep issues could actually regard ourselves as healthier than average, at least in that regard.

A very apt, succinct description of Non-24 (which I found on this web page) is "perpetual, shifting jet lag".

And here's an excellent much longer description of what it's like to have Non-24. I found it on

Mark's Story With Non-24

My experiences have been similar. I would actually go as far as to say that my sleep issues are quite possibly the number one top problem which ruined my life, above and beyond even my family's financial problems, and my former depression and continuing shyness.

I think my sleep issues either greatly contributed to or caused (directly or indirectly) most of what ails me.

(If you'd like to read a longer version of my story, you can go to this page of Astroblahhh.Com, my personal website.)

Topics of the Non24.Com Forum include (but aren't limited to):

Here are a couple articles that are a good intro to the idea of basic income. From Xamuel.Com:

Ten Reasons for Guaranteed Minimum Income

Basic Income

Canada experimented in the 1970's with a Mincome program which had numerous positive effects - here's an article about that from The Dominion: News from the Grassroots -

A Town Without Poverty? Canada's only experiment in guaranteed income finally gets reckoning

Probably most topics are welcome somewhere on the forum, at the very least at the General Discussions board.

There are some limits, though. Nothing illegal, or which I'm uncomfortable with, like topics which are adult-oriented, or which contain nasty personal attacks on anyone, etc., etc.

But other than that, as long as it follows the forum's rules, it's probably OK.

Again, welcome!
