Consciousness is defined as:

-------
consciousness

ˈkɒnʃəsnɪs/

noun

1.

the state of being aware of and responsive to one's surroundings.

"she failed to regain consciousness and died two days later"

synonyms:awareness, wakefulness, alertness,respo nsiveness, sentience

"she failed to regain consciousness"

--------

Is a dead person person aware and responsive of their surroundings? When someone recieves a blow to the head and brain trauma it can cause them to be knocked out or knocked un-conscious.
I read geb several years ago. it's a pretty dense book. how about you just post what evidence you have to support your claim here on the forum for those interested?
