Tell me about the experience of actually *being* the witness of the
deep-sleep state. Is that "nothing"? It is the experience of *being*
Brahman isn't it?  To the best of my knowledge, non-Realized beings
do not have the slightest clue what it's like to be Brahman, in any
state, that's what makes them non-Realized beings. When they do know
what it's like to be Brahman they never don't know what it's like,
whether the body is asleep or dead or whatever. Please correct me
if I'm wrong.
