Comatose patients are very distressing to doctors as there is essentially nothing to be done except wait. With an infection the doctor can try various antibiotic or heat treatments, enrich the patient's diet, and perhaps even work on their psychological state to boost the immune response. But except for maintenance of the human body, there is nothing to be done for a comatose patient. Human doctors are not sure of the cause, as where coma almost invariably sets in after a serious physical blow to the head or chemical disturbance in the body, it often lingers long after the cause has been removed. There have been cases where a patient, ostensibly well, is comatose for years and then, one day, just wakes up. When asked if they were aware of anything during that time, the patient draws a blank. What causes coma, and what kind of place was the patient in while comatose?
Coma uses the same mechanism we aliens do during visitation, when we record the visit in the subconscious only. This is a chemical block, and can lift as suddenly as it can be applied - within minutes. Due to past genetic engineering, the human body has overlapping brains, with the conscious brain the least well rooted. To use a computer analogy, the subconscious is hardwired but the conscious is software. If the chemistry flooding the body is missing certain components, the consciousness is deactivated just as surely as a computer without software cannot process data - lights on, fans humming, nothing happening. The parts of the body that are hardwired continue - heartbeat, breathing, reflex actions, digestion. During visitation, of course, the contactee is not comatose, as we adjust the body chemistry so that the subconscious is functioning but the conscious is deactivated. Contactees do not forget their visits, as they were never recorded in the conscious. Rather, recall builds a conscious memory from the subconscious. During coma, the patient sometimes reaches this state, in waves, during recovery. They may be awake and even walking about and talking, but will not remember later.
Recovery, for a comatose patient, is delayed where there is a subconscious wish to avoid the reality they must return to. For those who doubt this we would point to fugue states, which simulate a partial coma in that the patient cannot remember their past whatsoever. Parts of the brain are switched off, and doctors are unanimous that fugue states are psychological. Here the patient has changed their chemistry to detach the conscious, so that when they recover from the fugue state they have no conscious memory of where they have been. As the conscious was not on-line during the fugue, the patient also did not have access to past memories. Of course, the subconscious memories were available, and the patient knew full well they were avoiding certain areas so as not to dwell on the past. The subconscious deals with what is at hand - the here and now - so in a fugue state is not a nag for the temporarily forgotten.
Truly comatose patients are less alive than those in deep sleep. They are passing time. After an injury they emerge from this state to check out the world around them. As with a faint, the coma serves a purpose, removing the human from a situation they can do little about. When they emerge, gradually, they may determine they do not wish to return, and send themselves back into coma. Our advice for those wishing for the return of a loved one is to speak to them frankly about situations that the patient may be reluctant to face. Honesty is best, as the recovering patient is on that footing in any case. Speak freely of what the patient has to look forward to, changes in circumstances, new factors the patient is unaware of. If the patient is not hearing all of this, his incarnated spirit is, and speaks to the re- emerging mind quite well.
