Humans are connected to the astral world by unseen paths of intellectual energy and many of the intuitive human acrtions producing great many discoveries and inventions are because of this flow of intellectual energy. There are certain clestial congregations which promote congenial environment that enhance this flow of energy and Maha Shivarathri is one of such occasions. The reason behind "jagaran" (keeping awake without sleeping) is to keep our backbone upright. It is believed that upright back bone absorbs this intellectual energy more efficiently than when it is flat on the ground. It may observed that the back of humans is upriright unlike animals thus making humans intellectually more efficient than the animals.
