Death is the permanent loss of consciousness. Wishful thinking will not change that fact. If you weren’t conscious before your birth, why would you remain conscious after death? The only ‘hope’ I think of is that as long as there’s life, there is a possibility of ‘you’ being self aware again but being a totally different person in a totally different time or place. Of course, that wouldn’t be your ‘soul’ being reincarnated because you (as in right now) would have been dead and lost, but just being self aware as in I’m self aware as me and not you… Read more »

I think it is possible that the most rudementary substance in the universe is conciousness, and that everything made of matter is made up of trillions of consciousnesses only without any cognizance, senses or an ability to think, as that does not occur unless they are apart of a kind of netwroked intelligence, such as the brain. Our brain is a case in which those units of unaware though concious experiences are networked so that we can become aware of our internal and external surroundings. So in response to the OP, as my hypothesis would suggest, no.

It may be a temporary loss of consciousness, but not permanent. People who believe it is say “You will experience what you experienced before you were born – nothing”. If that is the case, then your birth was your coming into existence out of nothingness. Why couldn’t the process happen again after you die if it has happened before? Even for a materialist, isn’t all eternity long enough for another universe just like ours to form and for us to exist again?

No, the consciousness stays with the soul. This is even in cases with people who have a dementia like Alzheimer’s.

The consciousness is like a spiritual muscle. While we facilitate it’s health with our soul and body in harmony we are exercising it or letting it go flabby.

Ive read many of your past posts.

It seems that you have already experienced extreme loss of consciousness. If death is a permanent loss, then in your case it would just be redundant.

Jesus plainly taught continuation of consciousness after death……… 19 “There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. 20 But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, 21 desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell[a] from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 And being in torments in… Read more »

You are asking us a question that we absolutely cannot answer beyond a reasonable doubt.

I personally believe that it is a permanent loss of consciousness, but I can’t guarantee you that it’s the case.

No. that is a coma.
Death is when there is no brain function and the heart stops beating.

It’s the permanent loss of existence.

since we know consciousness is created in your brain, and that when death occurs your brain shuts down and rots, then it is logical that death is the permanent loss of consciousness.
