The whole dhamma is interconnected. The separations are due to limitations of language in expressing it, it cannot be expressed in a language.

Can you explain what you mean by this cappuccino?
"People often get too quick to say 'there's no self. There's no self...no self...no self.' There is self, there is focal point, its not yours. That's what not self is."

Ninoslav Ñāṇamoli
Senses and the Thought-1, 42:53

"Those who create constructs about the Buddha,
Who is beyond construction and without exhaustion,
Are thereby damaged by their constructs;
They fail to see the Thus-Gone.

That which is the nature of the Thus-Gone
Is also the nature of this world.
There is no nature of the Thus-Gone.
There is no nature of the world."

Nagarjuna
MMK XXII.15-16

The Message of the Velama Sutta

But such wisdom was lost to the world in Velama’s time, as he lived during the empty aeons between the arising of two Buddhas.

@Lal
Ven Kumara Kassapa explains that Anicca means the emptiness of the subject and object. (existence and non-existence)
Dukkha arises due to seen objects and subjects in the world.

We talk so much of existence. What really is existance.?
What is the purpose of existence ? What is the relationship of existence and anitya. ?
We only talk about existence that it is dukka.
What is the relationship of existence and anatma?
