        Does not
        Seeking the annihilation of everything is a defilement, the assumption also presupposes that things independently exist in the first place which runs contrary to anatta and dependent origination.
        Nirvana is peace because it constitutes the freedom from such things as existence and nonexistence, and the identification with these concepts.

      Im not an expert by any means on Buddhism so correct me if in wrong. I know that Buddha reached enlightenment after deatching himself from all worldly material. If there is nothing, then you have nothing to be attached to and thus you are enlightened? Basically what this anon said

        give up the false dream to expand into a higher level of reality
        you will still do human, now being conscious and enjoying

        >then you have nothing to be attached to and thus you are enlightened?
        transformation follows detachment
        you are not blissfully happy now because you hold onto bullshit

    Alagaddūpama-sutta

    “So saying, bhikkhus, so proclaiming, I have been baselessly, vainly, falsely, and wrongly misrepresented by some recluses and brahmins thus: ‘The recluse Gotama is one who leads astray; he teaches the annihilation, the destruction, the extermination of an existing being.’ As I am not, as I do not proclaim, so have I been baselessly, vainly, falsely, and wrongly misrepres ented by some recluses and brahmins thus: ‘The recluse Gotama is one who leads astray; he teaches the annihilation, the destruction, the extermination of an existing being.’

    “Bhikkhus, both formerly and now what I teach is suffering and the cessation of suffering. If others abuse, revile, scold, and harass the Tathāgata for that, the Tathāgata on that account feels no annoyance, bitterness, or dejection of the heart. And if others honour, respect, revere, and venerate the Tathāgata for that, the Tathāgata on that account feels no delight, joy, or elation of the heart.

      Pali Canon is so repetitious and tedious to read.

        it's a filter me thinks
        Also was originally an oral tradition so repetition would be very useful.

        Then just read it one time and recall the important parts when appropriate/relevant. You are able to read and remember, right anon?

    Reversal, why does the realization that nothing means everything give you a clue? Nothing exists.

    It's not the annihilation of everything, it's simply letting go of what was never real/important in the first place. Even the Buddha didn't remove teaching, food, and other substantial things in his existence. Instead they were re-framed in a word view that without illusion. The goal is to remove attachments to those things that we made up in the first place, including limited perspectives.

      Other people aren’t real or important to you at least?

        Buddhists are encouraged to put others first, helping them with kindness and generosity, to lessen the attachment to ego. So that's one way that other people are useful.
        Even if there are ultimately no other people and it's just a dream you're projecting, if you don't want fricked up dreams you should take care of them.

    I think it depends which sect of Buddhism honestly.

    There's the more rigorous branches that want to do the whole, "forgo the flesh entirely, forgo everything, do not pass go, do not collect $200, never reincarnate again, exit strategy, plan B."

    Then there are others that are just mindfulness and appreciation of the present, the now to not dwell on the past nor concern one's self about the future. He common man's Buddhism.

      Our attention is all that is needed to foster internal growth.

    in my experience it hasn't been annihilation, I've just gained a fuller control over everything that I am, by realizing none of it is me. It's building awareness of your nature, and once this awareness is present you realize certain things that then lead to them no longer entrapping and coiling you into those things and what they create, you are fundamentally above and outside of them and their influence. From this you gain: Full (or significant/greater control over your ego and the components that comprise it) and freedom from the suffering they may cause (intrusive thoughts no longer cause me any pain at all, I'm free of that issue now)
    You're not really? destroying anything necessarily, you're just relieving it of its position and importance.

      Was it a most serious effort for you to rise above the controlling systems, like being ready to die if needed?

        Pretty much the core of it, dying before you die.
        In my observation there are not many things more powerful than a man with nothing to lose.

    Why do you think total purification is equivalent to annihilation? If there is no such thing as a desire-less unconditioned thing (nirvana), that would mean all of reality simplifies to nothingness, or that it's irreducible, just turtles all the way down.

    Buddhism and annihilation are unrelated, I'm pretty sure, except as acknowledge of the viewpoint and non-acceptance/non-cultivation of the very same viewpoint.
