I didn't say I know that it "turns off" for sure, in fact I previously said that I can't actually know that for sure - but that doesn't mean anything. I can't know a lot of things for sure. I can't know for sure that I'm not a brain in a vat, but that doesn't mean that I am. Our sense of being seems to turn off while we sleep, and since I don't have any reason to believe otherwise, I don't.Let me try that again
<quoted text> Why do you keep assuming our sense of being turns off? You can't know it does.
<quoted text> Yea, only when we dream or otherwise become aware of something. Only when an "event" takes place.
<quoted text> Yes, where, indeed, do we go? I say "we" don't go anywhere, just that our sensory faculties (ability to sense an event) shuts down.
Well, if our sense of being "pops in" when an "event (dream) takes place," why aren't we lucid in every single dream that we have? If our sense of being is simply lurking somewhere in the background while we sleep, then shouldn't we enter every dream with our complete self intact?
