When i was a young child i had a very bad reaction to some kind of gas i was given at the dentist (ether or halothane). Despite being unconscious i had a very painful experience of being squeezed out of my body. I then floated around the ceiling looking down on the dentist and another person over someone seated in a large chair (ie me but the view was obstructed). I think i will never ever forget that kind of strange pain.

On the nature of consciousness: science just seems very restricted on what it can say.
