Rriiight, that´s just stretching it.
To assume this to be possible you´d have to be able to not only not acknowledge your own existence, you´d have to deny that you are connected to a
body, or not have any thoughts as all since they are connect to you, connected to a body.
Perhaps the proper way to say this is death.
As for the murky pond with fish, I bet that if I take a random bucket with water, there´s a big chance that there won´t be any fish in it. Even
though noone has examined that specific water for fish.
I believe these `events` of lost and found to be more of a sort of optical illusion.
Know how some people can't seem to find their calculator when it's right in front of them?
Or what about if they're looking for you, and you're standing in front of them and they still don't see you until you get their attention.
In these cases the object has not disappeared as well, but to the person looking for it, it has (to his knowledge, as he did not perceive it, but I
could confirm it's existence and grab it and hand it over to him).
