Question
Why when we sleep we don't realize it ? I know we're in a state of altered consciousness when we sleep.. However, why we don't realize we're asleep during our sleeping time ? Why is that ? And where are "WE" then when sleeping ? Thanks in advance for you help.

Answer
It is because you are unconscious, and when you are unconscious one doesn't realize it, but of course when you go to sleep, you know that you are going into this state.  Scientist say that we go to this place way back in the brain, that scientist have yet to research much except that it is the this sort of dead zone.  They also believe that this is the place when we die that still remains alive even after death.  Hope this helps, Karel
