Excerpt About Cessation
Cessation is UnknowableDeep sleep without dreams is similar to complete absence. Cessation does not have consciousness or awareness. It is unknowable. In its completeness cessation exists without the presence of anything else. Nothing is there and nobody is there to see nothing being there. You can only know absence by being it. And as I’ve said, when the awareness returns in the state of absence, one can be aware of one’s environment but with no self to be aware of it. This is a more subtle state than cessation.
