Why do you have these questions?

Why do you need to know if "nature/reality/time" is cyclical?

Why do you want to know "How many spirits are out there, and how/why are they created?"

Why do you want to know what happens to you after death?

Why do you rely on notions of existence or non-existence?

Why do you speculate?


N.B. The second to third questions are posts that "Curiosity" has started him/herself, the rest are from my engagement with said person

Also, if you are a true sceptic ( which you seem to try to be), you should doubt your own position


After all true scepticism is about collapsing in of itself and inducing Ataraxia

Once again

Why do you want to know "How many spirits are out there, and how/why are they created?"

Why do you want to know what happens to you after death?

Why do you rely on notions of existence or non-existence?

Why do you speculate?
