Where does our consciousness go when we’re sleeping?
It’s clearly not there, at least, not to the same effect as it is during our waking hours, because, unlike during the day when, if we stop and think about it, we can recognise that our consciousness is the thing in the background that is aware when we’re thinking, when we’re asleep and dreaming, the ‘thing’ in the background that should be aware that we’re dreaming is not (i.e., we don’t realise that a dream is a dream/that what we’re experiencing is a figment of our imagination, until we wake up).
Does this mean then that the part of our brain which is responsible for our consciousness ‘shuts down‘ when we’re asleep?
Is consciousness even in our brain?
Where does it go when we die?
