But when it happens, you won't know that you can't feel, think, see etc. Your consciousness will just not exist. You won't be sat somewhere wishing you could see, feel, think etc.

As per my post above (based on the pilot's information in the link below), relatively speaking, 5,000 fpm isn't that rapid.
