Thag 1.20. Ajita - I do not fear death; nor do I long for life. I’ll lay down this body, aware and mindful.

Well there is the world "atthi" ("it is" etc.), but I don't think we need to read notions of Existence with a capital E into that.

The khandá are abstract aspects of particular lived experiences which do exist, but since all such things are impermanent and subject to change, there is nothing in experience that qualifies as a self.

An arahant might very well exist as an individual, as a "thing". But since no individual, no "thing", exists as a self would exist, the arahant -- as the puthujjana would perceive him -- is not be be found.
