RE: I'm going to die soon
Before you can even have this conversation, you all need to have the exact same definition of "consciousness".

If it's just the opposite of unconsciousness, all it means is that you are aware of your surroundings, really.

Or maybe you mean "cognition"?

Or do you mean "self awareness", that which allows you to analyse yourself?

Many people equate it with personality, that which has turned out to be unique to your psyche in the course of the years.

Re. losing what you learned, what did you learn it for in the first place? Is it survival? Is it just because you like learning? Is it towards a purpose, like a job?

Whether learning is wasted has little to do with whether you die, it has to do with whether it served it's purpose at the time.

Then you say you have lived a third of your life. In numbers, yes you have. In perception, you are actually much further along than you think. Think back to when you were a kid and how long a year was. It lasted forever. Summers were incredibly long. The older you get, the faster time goes. Eventually years fly by and you wonder where the fuck they went. One year you teach your toddler to walk, next thing you know they are in grade school, and when you turn around again they have moved out. It goes faster and faster as far as human perception goes, every older person will tell you that. That's where the saying "life is short" comes from, it's a heck of a lot shorter than you think. Even if you live all your years out.

So many things are relative, so if you are going to have a conversation about life and death and learning and consciousness, you need to define everything first so you know you are on the same page at least.
