a quote from Yajnavalkya on the nature of the self

Now, the Self does not percieve anything in deep sleep. Although the self does not percieve anything there, it is seeing. The seeing inherent in the perciever has no cessation, since it is imperishable. However, there is no object second to the self that could percieve something distinct and separate from itself.

Yajnavalkya 1000 BCE
