In that case, what exactly do you mean by 'existence'
All i said was that The experience of a self arises.
That is how a buddha can talk to people,and use words such as "you" and "I".
Now you are saying a Buddha is unable experience that?
even though you brought up the fact that he did so.

I am not sure I agree with that. Even conventionally there is no self. If there was someone would be able to find it, but no such luck. /magnus
but the point is, you did find it,
find the conventional self,
and you proved that you found it
the moment you signed /magnus
to that post.
If you disagree
then you must also say that dreams do not occur either.
