I really enjoyed staying at an encampment at the top of a hill in the Samburu Reserve in Kenya.

I spend several days at a time without enough sleep. At first, normal activities become annoying. When you are too tired to eat, you really need some sleep. A few days later, things become strange.

It wasn't academic or conceptual.
