Big Picture formation takes place in sleep

It is not enough to know individual bits of information .What is required is to piece them together to arrive at a big picture.If you know A is greater than B , and B is greater than C, there is another piece of a hidden fact , an inferential knowledge that A is greater than C . The process of linking up disparate pieces of information with a view to arriving at the big picture actually takes place during sleep. This implies that cognitive processing actually takes place in sleep.
