    It's been long ago referred to as dying in your sleep. I had also accepted sleep to be a form of death onto itself . But can one truly die in their sleep or there is that moment of surrender ? What do you think.

      I think it is a bit of both. That is truly a great question to think about.  Thanks!

      Sleeping isn't death in any line of thought. Consciousness is still in existence on a subconscious level, even if the conscious mind isn't fully aware of it.

      And, yes people do die in their sleep.

        Thanks Cagsil. Many many years ago I went after it with some people about conscious and subconscious , I was fully energetic and the booze was never far away . However I was one of those drinkers you can gain a lot from speaking to because I gave you my all every time and put it this was , I was one of those gifted drinkers if there was such a thing. I made me believe there are.
        I would love kindly if you could shed a brief light for me on the Sub conscious.
        Because I am beginning to feel it's then related to what happens there, dying in sleep and there is no physical feeling in that state.
        These are things I tackle without the aid of books , just from a human that is true to himself , and would love to know especially when the question cam at me first when I was alone.
        Love to learn great things.

          You're welcome.
          In order to die in one's sleep, then one would have to be completely unaware, even on a subconscious level, otherwise they would jump into awareness that it's happening and then wake up from the sleep state.

    I wonder if those who die in their sleep know that they are dying.  If not, it would come as a shock to them when they wake up.

      It will come across as a shock , that they did mot wake up! I kinda feel that death actually wakes you up from sleep and everything else that you may be experiencing.

      I believe that death is an illusion. The person is simply no longer present, the water from the shell which they were, evaporates. "you", the self, is not in the water, it is as elemental as water. The self is not in the handful of chemicals which turn to dust, but self does exist, and must be included in the equation E=MC2, energy is our state after death, consciousness is included in that state. Call it oneness, call it God. How the "wheat" might be separated from the "chaff" is up to us. There is no true beginning and there is no true end, and we perceive what it is for each of us individually to perceive, that is also true as a human being overall, we may unlock the entire secret, but the fact is something which must be sought. The answers, though simple, may exist where people fear to tread. Into the self, consciousness and the nature of Energy. That, is the key.

    Death is a transformation from the physical to the spiritual. Some may call it your sixth Sense, your sub-conscience if you like, some think awareness and it is this sub-conscience that become heightened with wisdom and makes your aware.You die in your sleep to regenerate to come back the following day. However, if your physical life line is snaped from life you dont come back. then you sleep for ever in the spiritual realm if you like, where I believe where people have passed into to the most divine. So there is life after death after all.

    Everything is a dream once you become unconscious. The question is when do you know your alive again and somewhere else?

      There are different levels of unconsciousness, but it believed that even in the deepest level the hearing is the last thing to go. That is why someone's prognosis when they are in this condition should never be discussed in front of them.

      I dream when asleep.

      I have never had a dream while under anaesthesia, which has got to be a good time to die because you won't feel anything. You just won't wake up again.

      I would love it to be that you do wake up and walk away, looking back over your shoulder at your body, or even floating above it, who cares?

      Either way, it would prove that the human life force is indeed in the soul and not in the body.

    I have watched people die apparently in their sleep.

    They are not simply sleeping when death approaches. Usually they have a Cheyne-Stoke breathing pattern that tells observers that death is near.

    People who apparently die in their sleep overnight are not observed at the point of death, so who knows?

      I have seen my father in law died in front of me and my mother in law.He was 84 years old and came home,asked for glass of water and as soon as took one sip, glass fell and he was gone. It seems like people do not know when they are going to die.  Death comes in so many forms. We do not know when and where?
