            I agree that, in dreamless sleep, all conflict and polarities
disappear.   There's no separate experiencer who is "having" an experience.

             But, if your very ground of being is Pure Consciousness,
(because that's ALL that there really is), then joy, peace, love and

"something is missing."

"there" to say it to, anyway.
