I waited and waited for a response to my post and when none came I knew it must be from you.
One can never eliminate the concept of irreducible complexity as long as it is supported by inexplicable stupidity.

You are probably referring to Fatal Familial Insomnia (FFI), which is condition caused by a rare genetic disorder involving a mutated prion protein. Although I'm not aware of any current research involving the treatment of FFI with Orexin-A, there has been promising research on the restorative effects of this peptide in sleep deprivation studies.
I heard if you don't dream you will die because dreams produce serotonin and serotonin is neede to survive. This is what I've heard please correct me if you know more!

In most cases, you won't die if you don't dream. Many people don't get sleep for many days. For that matter, many people do not dream. Instead of dreaming, they instead see short pictures in their mind all about what happened that day. It is called "Sliding". If you do not dream, you may get more grumpy, and more likely to lose breath when running quicker, but you don't have to worry about not dreaming. It is a very rare accurance to die if you don't dream, but if you don't dream often you may get dissy, and do the things above. But it's okay, just get some extra sleep and you will be back to normal.
