Preregistered experiment to increase intelligence and decrease sleep

Upon reading the above post I have decided to attempt to perform the procedure described by Will Smith over the span of two weeks. If the experiment is a success I will have reduced my sleep need to 2 hours a night, and my intelligence to Von Neumann levels.

I have no way to directly measure the results, but as far as I am aware I currently need roughly 8 hours of sleep, and do not have world-class intelligence (in fact a friend described me as having accomplished nothing in the past two years), so it should be obvious if it works.

I will record the results in this thread and I welcome any feedback.

The results: This experiment did not work and I will attempt it again tonight.
