Does anyone have any vivid recollection of their experiences when under anesthesia (or if anyone has had the unfortunate experience of being in a coma?) Did you feel like you were in some other virtual reality? Was it a pleasant experience? Was it frightening? Since our brains are unable to work properly during the given time of being "under," I wonder what happens to our consciousness?

A few years ago I had my appendix removed, and while under anesthesia, I had very vivid experiences on a beautiful blue planet with waterfalls which would would be the closest thing to "heaven" I've ever experienced. When I was being "pulled back," (while the anesthesia was wearing off) I remember being in this in-between state where I was so upset and angry that I had to leave my temporary paradise and mentally fighting coming back.

*To sum up: When your point of attention is no longer in the PMR due to drug induced unconsciousness, (e.g anesthesia) are you experiencing a dream state or other *real* virtual realities?

Hi Ckozz, I happened to just have seen a video or two about a man (Robert Mobley) telling about his coma nightmares (which are fortunately not common). Watching those two videos, should answer your question.
I would warn you and others though, that what he experienced is some of the worst that one can experience, so it's not easy to watch.

There is no general rule here, there are a multitude of experiences possible, from no awareness and recollection to Robert's or your experience, and everything in between.

when I was put under a few years ago for dental surgery I do not remember anything happening. I suspect just like going to sleep in PMR anything can happen.

Clearly your chemical brain state effects your non-PMR experiences, dreams, etc. After quitting drinking my dreams for a few weeks where very vivid and strange.

It is clearly better to avoid any addictions and substance use for the best PMR and NPMR experiences. I would even avoid anesthesia unless it was necessary.

Some mornings when I wake up after being in bed all the required 8 hours I say to my self "wow that was a good nights sleep, no dreams, just solid sleep".

Then I go on with my day until many hours after, when I am doing something random, I remember in a flash a vivid dream I had while I was sleeping. The memory of this dream had been completely gone since I woke up, and only some random event made me remember it. So, based on my own experience, I think that we probably experience other realities all the time, but we do not always remember after waking up from sleep/drugs/coma etc.
