Cunda Sutta It means touching the mind (meaning mental body) to nibbana. The deathless element is one of the poetic epithets...

You inappropriately use the term "annihilation." It is appropriate to use it only in relation to a constantly existing entity, and in relation to changing phenomena that arise as one and disappear as the other, it is inappropriate to use it.

Not. You do not understand. Without the addition of fuel (tanha), the fire is extinguished, only residual fuel (khandhas formed by past kamma) dies down. With the end of life 5 khandha finally fall apart, only bodily remains remain.
