Quite provisional and relative, having known the gaze of non-local awareness outside this corporeal form as it lay cadaver-like on a bed.

Re: Criticism

Are you aware of what occurs during your deep dreamless sleep? I may be an unusually active dreamer, but my experience is of non-stop dreaming. Only in retrospect can I surmise that deep dreamless sleep must have happened between one dream and another. But even if in such a state, what is aware of ...

Likewise, I can find no reason to take seriously immanently non-aware Being.
