I don’t accept your rendition. I believe once your body degrades past a certain point, you are no longer “sleeping”, you are dead. Dead. Really dead.
If you want to maintain the idea of sleeping, in connection with the preservation of your personality, then you have to accept a non-material definition of the personality - - i.e., the “soul”.
Now, the “soul” could be sleeping if you like. But it exists “outside of the 3 dimensions” in that the soul does not occupy space as we understand it.
This view of the “soul” can be compared to “light” and the “light bulb”. When the current is switched off, there is no light. You could say that the light is sleeping if you like. And if someone crushes the bulb, or if it falls apart on its own, you could still argue that the “light” is sleeping.
Or… you can imagine a “Cosmic Ziplock Bag of Spirit” … (again, not physically operating in our 3 dimensions)… and it can travel around on its own, if permitted or designed to do so. I believe this latter scenario is more consistent with Theist scenarios, while the former one may well be the more logical one for non-Theists to prefer. It’s hard to speculate on the matter.
If by “sleeping” you (or some evangelicals) are simply using a familiar word in a special technical sense, then you should understand the limitations of the technical sense: you or they would be using “sleeping” to describe: “the state of unconsciousness that occurs when the body is no longer able to maintain consciousness.”
Sometimes the body can no longer maintain consciousness because, let’s face it, the body is dead! So calling that time “sleeping” seems a little flimsy to me.
To me, “sleeping” means temporary unconsciousness - - in a body that has been alive the whole time, or where the medical definition of death was only met for a very short time, with no or minimal damage to the brain."
Of course, you or others could argue that from God’s viewpoint, the time that Lazarus was unconscious was trivial (in God’s view) and so “sleeping” is an acceptable use. And I could agree, but not if I’m going to be assailed by the disappointment of a person, revived by God, into a brand new body - - who complains rather ardently, that it seems the renewed person is not genuinely the old person and that some untoward “cloning” has been inflicted upon their being.
If it is still a problem for you, and you think you are up to the task of chastising God for making you a clone, instead of letting your body remain uncorrupted and changed for centuries while you “sleep” - - then you are left with the soul as a separate entity, that can travel and transmigrate as conditions allow. Oh… and that separate entity, the soul, can also sleep as well… and not have to worry about the indignity of being “cloned”!
