From what quantum physics tells us, the world around us reacts to our consciousness. From what I understand there are 2 states to where our consciousness is reacted upon in the quantum world. One is quantum superposition, when we aren't observing something. The other is well, the world around us when we are there to observe it. I gather from this that when we die, we just go back into quantum superposition, because relative to you and your consciousness, the world no longer exists relative to you and only you. Just want to make that clear, that it's only there when you experience it. Now going into the subject of sleep, is it at all possible that when we are asleep the same quantum superposition occurs? We are obviously not aware of the physical world when sleeping, and our observing consciousness is effectively all but gone. To take it one step further, why is sleep so instantaneous to us? To me, if when asleep if we are actually in quantum entanglement, we time travel while sleeping, due to the fact (I think?) that particles such as photons (but not limited to) travel at the speed of light, hence the time dilation while we sleep. Due to us literally being, relative to just you again, in quantum superposition. Now I will admit that my understanding of this subject is rather small, but I would appreciate some input, and honestly let me know if this is all a bunch of nonsense. Please specify for me though. Any thoughts on this?
