Greetings Kim,

Funny comic... it goes to show attachment to self and why sometimes the Buddha's teachings are falsely interpreted as annihilistic.

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
