28. 'Verily, when there (in the state of deep sleep) he does not
think, he is, verily, thinking, though he does not think, for
there is no cessation of the thinking of a thinker, because of
the imperishability (of the thinker). There is not, however, a
second, nothing else separate from him of which he could think.

29. 'Verily, when there (in the state of deep sleep), he does
not touch, he is, verily, touching, though he does not touch,
for there is no cessation of the touching of a toucher, because
of the imperishability (of the toucher). There is not, however,
a second, nothing else separate from him which he could touch.'

- Brhad-aranyaka Upanishad, IV.3.28-29, trans. S. Radhakrishnan
