Decapitating Consciousness

How does this differ from Perennial philosophy?

Since you’ve made the distinction between consciousness and self, is there any reason to think that a feeling of self is as universal as consciousness? If a computer became “conscious” would it lose it’s “self” every time it was turned off, just as some people have lost their previous “selves” due to injury only to have the old self be replaced by a new one?
