In continuing the notion of the unchanging ego, many rationalists have implicitly assumed that man has an eternal soul. Is that also a false perception? According to Buddha and Hume it is true. PILOT YOU DON’T STOP FLYING WHEN YOU GET OLD POSTER. Do you know what Buddha said to his disciples before he died? No, how do I know? If there is a match, all can be dissolved, there is birth, then all can cease. Never forget to be diligent and diligent to get rid of hope. Hume could have said the same thing. Or Democritus too. From all events, we see that Hume rejected any attempt to prove the immortality of the soul or the existence of God.
