Let's kick this death thread into a slightly different gear shall we? (or at least, slightly different for me)
Our ultimate goal is to end the cycle of suffering, death, and rebirth, yes? So what happens when that time finally comes? please be aware this is purely hypothetical, so let's just pretend that what I am trying to explain, is so.
Every single being in the universe has managed to end the cycle, does that mean extinction of all life everywhere, since nothing is being reborn? What happens to enlightened beings after they die? do they just cease to exist? After all, to me non-existence is the deepest form of peace there can be. I'm sure these questions are addressed somewhere, and have probably been answered here before. But I just find myself curious, is all.
And you wouldn't deny my curiosity would you? my ulcer is bad enough as it is
