      We don’t really know, because scientifically we don’t really understand what is consciousness either. Consciousness is a very subjective experience, and it seems that it is a holistic phenomenon that cannot be dissected into constituent parts, so it is not clear how to study it scientifically. Some people think that death is just like going to sleep, just that you never wake up?
