What is this concern you're both referring to?
Why don't you think you'll experience death? Are you immortal? You will experience it, even if your presumptions about the experience are correct and it's an unconscious one.

People will experience dying (or maybe not, depending what you die of. Some deaths are so quick that there's no time for your nervous system to register anything). Dying can be pretty unpleasant. But death is something no one experiences because none of the things that make us experience anything are there anymore.

If you've ever been knocked unconcious you'll know that there is no experience of the time lost. There is nothing bad or unpleasant about it, because you don't register anything. While you're unconscious you don't mind it at all.

Death is just like being knocked unconscious - you just don't wake up.

(To make it plain: I don't want to die. But I won't mind once it has happened)

You're assuming nothing happens when you die. How do you know? Or perhaps you're just hoping?

That's debatable.

Being unconscious is very different from being dead. It's sort of definitionally impossible to consciously experience an unconscious state.

How do you know? I doubt it's anything like being unconscious.
