Here is a post I just made a few posts down this other thread. Try it on for size as a start to an answer:viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4021
Beyond this as Thynes was saying, but in other words, these are virtual experiences. You are and remain yourself as an IUOC existing and experiencing over the RWW. You do not die if you are visiting NPMR by switching your input data stream temporarily to the NPMR data stream. Also note, that this is a data stream you pick relative to NPMR, not the data stream being experienced by your NPMR virtual self which continues to experience its own data stream that constitutes its existence in NPMR. Even when you 'die' here in PMR, you have not died except as the virtual being experiencing this PMR experience packet has had its experience data stream terminated. Your consciousness just returns to your NPMR experience, switches experience data streams, which continues as before. If you are a relative beginner and need some kind of 'therapy' and special handling to ease the transition back, you will get it.
Does this answer your question?
