How about impairment of consciousness?  Can you experience that?  Can you
experience going crazy, or having a reduced level of consciousness where
you are drugged or barely alive?  That's how death is for most people,
it's not like flicking off a light.  Will Quantum Immortality protect you
from spending an eternity in a near-coma?  Exactly how much consciousness
does it guarantee you?
