GuyC;134673 said:Dependent Origination explains how rebirth occurs without a self. You could say it is the "Middle Way", if you like, between eternalism and annihilationism.

Cloud;137009 said:The body decomposes after death. Many parts of it are devoured by plant, insect and animal life, allowing them to survive and to grow. Other parts remain a part of the earth beneath our feet. Where then have you gone? You were never contained merely within the body to begin with -- as you see you are now a part of many other things, in separate places in this world. What had come together to form you were plant and animal life and material from your parents -- those too all from different places, converging to create a changing mass of aggregates. That change began to think of itself as something new, something created and independent. Nothing was further from the truth...We are not something new that comes to be and then is gone. We are the result of conditions, of change, forming new temporary phenomena (these bodies... these aggregates), which will fade and become the basis for new phenomena. This is our rebirth, and it is selfless as with all things.
