How would you know ?
Thought I would make a thread for all of those "How would you know" ? questions

My question is "How would know if you were unconscious and alive or unconscious and dead" ?
Another way to word this would be "You are unconscious and alive in a coma. How would you know if you were still alive or if you had recently died" ?

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Is the idea to answer the question above before asking a new one?

If so...
Death = brain death... the end of your knowledge. You can only 'know' if you are still alive.
Smartass

How would you know whether it's worth unpacking your bags in the infinite hotel?

You wouldn't know anything if you were dead. Because you'd be dead.

You wouldn't know. If you are ever paralyzed for surgery, you'll know what I'm talking about. One moment you are awake, the next instant you are in recovery. There is no sense at all of the passage of time like there is during sleep. Your consciousness completely ceases to exist, How could death be different, except that you never wake up in recovery?

Softly, softly, catchee monkey.

I think, therefore I am.

Through profound pain comes profound knowledge.

Depends on if you have dreams or not.
