the aggregates are empty of self, not a self empty of self

To say the self is empty of self is to still cling to a self

Even when one attains nibbana and has no self-view the aggregates remain, they expire when conditions are right for them to do so

The aggregates expire, as in they break down and cease to function and so exsist

My apologies if the following questions have been answered, since I have not read all 430 posts in this thread. These questions are especially geared toward those who reject rebirth but are in some way Buddhist:

If there is no rebirth, what happens after death for the un-enlightened?

If it is the end, how is that different from the atheist/agnostic view?

If it is the end; for those who want to pursue hedonism, what incentive is there not to?
