Why do problems always seem greater in the middle of the night?


Is there some physiological condition behind this mind frame that occurs in the middle of the night? e.g. low blood sugar level. Or some more esoteric reason? Or is it because psychological defenses are low? The mind is clearly churning through the possibilities and trying to get at answers, but it doesn't always seem useful. For example - many people feel the terror of their own mortality in the middle of the night, more than at any other time. Why?
