"Life is a struggle. Life will throw curveballs at you, it will humble you, it will attempt to break you down. And just when you think things are starting to look up, life will smack you back down with ruthless indifference..."

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

The aggregates ceasing is annihilation only if we are of the wrong view that things exist. It must occure only at death, if we consider that things exist. But what if things existed/experience manifested in a somewhat different way? That is, what if one experience merely gave rise to another experience, in a cause and effect manner; and each cause (and hence effect) was impermanent (hence, unsatisfactory). So that everything that arises is dukkha.

This is what those people with discernment proclaim, according to the kaccayanagotta sutta.
