    ....Really? o_O So... the repairing done when you're sleeping is actually what builds the muscle?

    Actually, I gotta disaggree with that. Sometimes I remember dreams I KNOW I didn't wake up in the middle of, because I remember going straight from one dream to another without waking up sometimes. But it does really suck when you wake up in the dead middle of a dream you really didn't want to wake up in the middle of -_-

    Then how come you don't gradually need more and more sleep to take on the same effect in your body like with caffiene? Because caffiene is technically a drug and you get tolerant of it after a while, which is why the caffiene in soda or them thar frozen coffee things at Krispy Kreme don't affect me anymore. If sleep does the same thing in your body as caffiene does, it only makes sense that sleep would be like a drug to the body and that the body would eventually need more and more of it to produce the same effect, like a drug, but that's not how it works, now is it.

    Building muscle actually is: You lift either repetitively or brute strength. When you do this you begin to feel "the burn". The burn is muscle tissue tearing apart. As it heals, just like scar tissue, it is tougher. Over and over again creates a super tissue (so to speak) that is actually the bulge you see and the rock hardness.

    Sleep is not an external drug. There are many drugs created by our body but these are normally released in controlled ways by your body. However when external drugs synthetic or otherwise are introduced your body has no control of their affect. Since it has no control it cannot regulate on its own. This is partly and very crudely an explanation. Like Seratonin(sp?), you will not develope a resistance to it unless it given as a supplement for a natural deficiency. Many factors can and do change what I have said but it is brain chemistry and I haven't the time or knowledge to further detail.

    I didn't say sleep was a drug. I said it wasn't a drug in an attempt to get the point across that it doesn't make sense to me that caffiene works the same way as sleep, because, if it did, sleep would work the same way as caffiene, which it does not.

    Well, sleep itself is not a drug but your brain does release natural drugs which creat the relaxation and calm that is not normally obtainable while awake. Though it is possible with practice of different meditations. I agree with you, sleep and caffeine are not the same nor do they work the same except that they both cause an effect on the nervous system. One can interfere with the other though.

    I'd say those natural drugs are chemicals or hormones, not drugs, since, if the brain released drugs during sleep, then, like all drugs, you would build up a tolerance of it and eventually need more and more for the same effect. So I'd say whatever the brain releases during sleep is a chemical or a hormone.

    all I know about caffeine is that it speeds up how fast neurotransmitters fire.
