For the benefit of everyone who is not Slawomir: only sustainable flat EEG
means death.

I wonder what would happen if we'd anaesthesize Slawomir in his sleep,
induced a heart arrest and waited a couple minutes after resuscitation.
Or merely sedated both his hemispheres, making them transiently electrically
silent (a much softer approach).

Then, after several months and years we'd tell him. What would be
his reaction?
