Why the young need more sleep than the old

And so I fell devoutly asleep and slept a long time, because young people seem to need sleep more than the old, who have already slept so much and are preparing to sleep for all eternity. -Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose

I assume Eco views sleep here in the sense of resting in the divine presence.
