I'm going to be in surgery for the first time tomorrow. Doctor says that sedation will put me under and I won't remember anything, which is a weird concept to me.
I imagine, would I still feel pain? Am I still me? What is consciousness without memory? It is like a stream of "me"s being created and destroyed as the seconds go by, but the only one that remains is the one when I wake up.
Am I going to suffer, and then forget it like it never happened? Like thinking of generations before, having toiled and passed, today known only to history.
