Wouldn't you die if that stopped working

See, that question is a big part of the fun! What is consciousness/unconsciousness, and where does it come from? So many questions, so much hypothesizing.

True, but it never "stops working." The cerebral cortex, which is where everyone thinks consciousness is, is supposed to to turn back on when "consciousness" is restored after the people were given anesthesia, but in reality the central core structures of the more primitive brain structures like the thalamus and parts of the limbic system become functional first, which could mean that a foundational primitive conscious state must be there before a higher consciousness can be turned on.

It's crazy. Our brain is ridiculous.

I think there is a current medical definition of conscious, and I don't think a hypothalamus qualifies.

con·scious/***712;känCH***601;s/
Adjective:
Aware of and responding to one's surroundings; awake.
Having knowledge of something; aware.

The hypothalamus doesn't respond to its surroundings, nor does it have the ability to be asleep or awake. It also doesn't have the ability to have knowledge of something.

Yeah, I was somewhat worried about that thunderstorm stuff, because it started happening when I was at the Laney machine shop. In one sense, the building should be safe because it will act like a Faraday Cage, but in another sense, there is tons of 240 volt power and metal everywhere.

Okay Miles. I'll believe you over the medical professors and scientists at University of Turku in Finland with combined research from medical professors at UC Irvine.

Please make a medical journal describing your research, and put these idiot's in their place!
