comment Do students exhibit rational behavior in determining study time?
comment Is it possible for humans to conceive of being dead?
The latter ("cannot perceive unconsciousness") simply cannot ever be done, even through a full understanding of consciousness. One can't be conscious of unconsciousness or any unconscious process, even if familiar with them in a technical sense. Perceiving anything involves a conscious perception, or a simulated re-perception via memory. To perceive death assumes one can perceive something outside of a conscious state. I'm assuming here that death is the end of perception, and thus a lack of perception is not something that can be perceived. Think of what it was like before your birth.
