Transition Dreams - Greg Egan

""I understand. But if my brain has been shut down by hypothermia ... why will I dream?"

"Your brain won't do the dreaming. The software model we're creating will. But as I said, you won't remember any of it. In the end, the software will be a perfect Copy of your--deeply comatose--organic brain, and it will wake from that coma remembering exactly what the organic brain experienced before the scan. No more, no less. And since the organic brain certainly won't have experienced the transition dreams, the software will have no memory of them.""
