Not a horror story, sweetness, it is hard scientific fact.<quoted text>
If you're thinking of delving into the horror story genre....don't. I doubt you could scare anyone but a 6 year old....or a theist. People who go around bothering little children usually wind up behind bars....be very careful, or just stfu.
When your consciousness is aware the end is here it is going to go bananas. Spurious signals caused by neural network failures will disrupt your thinking process. That is just a fact from the materialist view of existence and consciousness. We know that from making machines.
The body can be totally disconnected, but there is a lot of activity going on in your head. Your higher level consciousness, your awake human functioning brain shuts down and your deeper consciousness kicks in, Just like going to sleep or knocked out. But instead of that brain having memories formed, or blocked, when you wake up you will be stuck with it until it is all gone. You can consider it your emotional center. Your will to live, your base existential engine without the waking consciousness controlling it.
The brain and increased consciousness and awareness is built outwards. This may be the secret to the religious experience, a phenomenon where the human brain makes a connection to the basic brain and writes a peaceful exit if not preparing for a new spiritual journey.
