Would it be bennificial to eat say 8-10 meals a day as apose to the generally recomended 5-6? If you can break it up even more is it better, and is the only reason 5-6 is reccomended is because it's easier?

that would be very hard to do and would really only be beneficial if one was cutting and using a lot of whey in place of whole foods for meals...

Why would it only be bennificial while cutting and with using whey?

whey only provides amino acids in the bloodstream for about 2 hours. so technically you could consume whey every 2 hours to keep a constant supply of aminos in the bloodstream to support all of the neccessary functions related to skeletal muscle upkeep and growth.

if eating whole foods 3 hours is pretty much the minimum time before you should eat again unless the portions are very small which would of course shorten digestion times and gastric emptying...

i say eat as often as your hungry... base 3 main meals (breakfast , post workout , lunch) those should be your biggest then just eat when your hungry every 2 hours if its decent sized..basically if you eat over 55g of protein in one meal id wait about 2.5 hours to eat again.. if less you can eat sooner.. that away you can max the protein absorption
