Yes. That's essentially what we are. Each of us is a unique "point of view" for Self to experience Creation. Or, such is the understanding of this particular point of view persona at this particular point in the space time continuum.

Yeah, that's what I wondered about the anesthesia. I really don't know. It does feel like a computer being taken offline for a while, though, like having your net connection shut down. You can't download anything from the Source.
It IS possible to get information to which you have/had no direct access, such as scenes from your very early childhood, from other lives (yours or someone else's) or even stuff from the Akashic Library, of course. I expect that if I really wanted/needed to know, I could find out what happened during my surgery, but it went perfectly well and I'm not sure I really want to.
I'm just thought-rambling here. Not making any assertions or arguments. Just letting thoughts come into my awareness and I'm writing them down. Sometimes when I do that I say some really interesting things. Sometimes not, of course....
