The Corruption of the Day and the Peace of the Night : Night Owls

Many night owls are very intelligent people, in fact studies show that night owls and even insomniacs are more intelligent people - and though for some, the reasons have relation to anxiety - the manifestations are often based on a superior electric output. Night Owls frequently have a "racing mind" and even some slight paranoia.
However, this is a good thing in some instances, because it represents analytical thinking and the ability to be productive at the quietest times. Likewise, daytime is seen as an excessively busy day to these individuals, and to cut the noise and refrain from interaction - most night owls stay away from the perceived chaos of daytime. Philosophers have even been known to enjoy the night.

For this reason I refer to this slightly disturbed biological phenomenon as ......"The Corruption of the Day and Peace of the Night".

A humble metaphor, but to the point.

Elvis Presley, Winston Churchill, James Joyce and a few other philosophers / analyticals were said to be Night Owls. Yet they maintained such a degree of consistency in their work, and pursued great success - often in overdrive during "quiet hours".

The idea of this biological rhythm being a productive one, or the embodiment of deep thought, dates back even to Biblical Times - to where the night was the center of deep thought and meditation for prophets and Kings. Esther and many other chapters pointed this out.

Esther 6:1 ESV 

On that night the king could not sleep. And he gave orders to bring the book of memorable deeds, the chronicles, and they were read before the king.

The prophet Daniel was also one of these such philosophers, he was an intellectual and considered of the primary "wise men" of Babylon. He had received many dreams and visions during the night, and was frequently thinking, and praying at these times. Where then the most prominent solutions were felt. Daniel was able to reveal the secrets of the dreams that the king had, and spoke with great honor, without fearing, that his vision was correct - he took to being humble and of good spirit, even in times of great trouble.

There are both spiritual and biological factors, but research shows that many night owls have immense differences in their pineal gland function - and deficiencies or dysregulation of Melatonin and / or melatonin receptors. From a spiritual standpoint, instincts are given to those of good Faith, who bring forth their progress at night after meditating upon the unseen.

Interestingly, the pineal gland is the fruit of proving the existence of a higher power, and is frequently referred to as "God's Antenna".
