Uncease, unborn = no identity?

No holds barred discussion on the Buddhadharma. Argue about rebirth, karma, commentarial interpretations etc. Be nice to each other.

Uncease, unborn = no identity?

In the dedicatory verse of Nagarjuna's Fundamental of the Middle Way,

He mentions that
Whatever is dependently arising is unceasing, unborn, ....

In your opinion, do you think ultimately the word of unceasing is just another word of no identity, in the sense that using different vocab but referring to the same meaning?

How about the word of non-arising or unborn, do you also think Ultimately they are actually a different vocab for no identity (no self)?
I am not here nor there.
I am not right nor wrong.
I do not exist neither non-exist.
I am not I nor non-I.
I am not in samsara nor nirvana.
To All Buddhas, I bow down for the teaching of emptiness. Thank You!

What is the agent of arising? What is the agent of ceasing?
