Quick question if you all have a moment:
In this talk, Ajahn Brahm is talking about how we basically can still have "mind" without our "brain." (pretty cool). He goes on to say how, similar to meditation, our senses fade away during death yet our mind is still clear and active and the state of mind is a direct result of the moment before, even after death. My question is, if our senses fade, wouldn't this be similar to sleep? But, sleep and meditation are totally different for me...even though the senses fade in both cases. How is "mind's" relation to the senses different in sleep vs meditation vs death if all senses supposedly fade in all cases, yet are totally different experiences
