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."

Sometimes I get the impression that the misunderstandings and refusals to learn which can be observed in these sorts of threads are rooted in treasured cultural/social histories. Akin to what was once standard United States education about e.g. the Mayflower and the first Pilgrims, it's a social myth far more than it is accurate history.

I think "Hindu Buddha" phenomena reflect something similar.
