Term:sleep
Definition (Myers):Periodic, natural, reversible loss of consciousness- as distinct from unconsciousness resulting from a coma, general anesthesia, or hibernation.
Definition (alternative): Sleep is the natural state of bodily rest observed in animals. It is common to all mammals and birds, and is also seen in many reptiles, amphibians and fish. In humans, other mammals, and a substantial majority of other animals which have been studied —such as some species of fish, birds, ants, and fruit-flies—, regular sleep is essential for survival.

Contextual explanation: go beyond the basic definition to explain what the term means with examples, etc.
